A Happy Golfer Buys His Desert Retreat

This is an unqualified endorsement of Donna Moulton. There are few times in a life when one encounters a person who is a credit to their profession and Ms. Moulton is among that small group. As an out of state buyer, I was lucky to find Donna through a friend of a friend. I bought the condo I was hoping to find with a minimum of hassle. She is very smart, thorough, proactive, consistently efficient and extremely personable. I never felt she was pushing me into a sale, and several times, she discouraged me from further investigating a listing. (I believe it was because sheunderstood my preferences.) On a few occasions she made sure I wasprotected with written counter offers when the seller gave verbal assurances. Since she’s been at it for many years, she works very well with title company officers, HOA contacts, fellow realtors and the like. She’s terrific.

Hail, Hail, The Monsoon is Here!

I was lucky to be in the Tucson Mountains yesterday for the first hail storm of the season. Lots of wind, an inch of rain, thunder, lightning, and bouncing hail the size of peas. The temperature dropped from 105 to 85 in minutes. It was spectacular, of course. Twenty minutes later, it was over, the sun came out and a rainbow crossed the sky.

Most of Tucson saw little to no rain. Is this an amazing place or what?
