A Special Family

Arizona Public Media's Story Corps was in Tucson to interview people about their perspective on love. Eli and Ben Schneider talked about what it was like to have two gay parents. Eli is now the manager of one of my favorite restaurants, Bentley's House of Coffee & Tea, which was founded by his mother Joanne Schneider, who now owns one of my other favorite Tucson restaurants, LaCocina. It was a pleasure for me to help  Eli buy his first home.

3014 N Cherry Ave

This was my first home in Tucson. It is my best rental. The tenants love it, take good care of it and stay for years. Three of my tenants could only be lured away by home ownership. At least I got to help them buy their new homes.

In 2008, I installed 16" ceramic throughout, and it looks great. I also installed counter tops, a garbage disposal and a dishwasher. This home is 1,045 square feet and has two bedrooms and one bath. The ceilings are high and the windows are large. The floor plan is here. The walled back yard has a storage shed, mature native trees, and a patio where you will spend many relaxing hours. You can put your washer and dryer in the carport shed.

Two miles north of the U of A near the Mountain Avenue bike path. A few blocks from Albertson's, Raging Sage, Beyond Bread, Opa!, Lovin' Spoonful, Yoshimatsu, Blue Willow, The Folk Shop and lots of other cool stuff on Tucson's real main street, Campbell Avenue.

Rent is $950 per month, but if you pay before the first of the month, you can pay $935. Deposit is $950. Utilities at your expense. Electric stove, refrigerator, dishwasher, central air conditioning and gas furnace. Equal Housing Opportunity.

You must be self supporting, have good credit and good landlord references. No smoking and no pets. This house is rented through June 30, 2019. I am the owner/agent and property manager.
