Moving After the Election
It’s been a stressful eighteen months.
Regardless of how you feel about the election results, with possibilities ranging from tearful joy to a red rage (or maybe a blue one, depending on how you look at things), you’re wanting to get away from your local hotbed of misplaced political opinions, to move away from the hustle and the bustle of the all-too-opinionated city, and out to where you can breathe: both literally and figuratively.
No, not to New Zealand - it’s a long way from home, after all, and it smells like sheep.
And not to Canada either - it’s freezing, and you’ll have to start apologizing for everything. So, unless you’re feeling awfully in need of some freshly muddied wool to sniff or you’re feeling really sorry for something silly, then you might want to take a look at Arizona.
If you're worried about big hats, big attitudes, and big guns, then rest assured we're not all desert-dwelling cowboys. However, if you’re a fan of the old west, then you should think about exploring real estate in the historic town of Tombstone, where the greatest legends of the old west found their roots in the silver-rich soil and stupidity was silenced with a finger twitching at a holster. (Okay, times have changed a bit, perhaps, but we can at least allow for a little nostalgia and wishful thinking, right?)
Nor are we all crazed sports fanatics who live, eat, and breathe football and dream in shades of Cardinal red and ASU maroon. But, if you’re looking to change your loyalty or start a good-natured debate and find a common bond - politics aside - with fellow lovers of the game, then you might want to explore real estate in Tempe and Phoenix.
If you’re looking to retire to a community full of fine dining, art of every sort, and scenic desert views, then Scottsdale is worth not skipping over - you might just find the place you’ve always been searching for. And there are more than enough miles of horse- and bike-trail to keep all those pesky thoughts on the economy far, far away.
For families in search of a small-town feel (where people matter more than politics), but still wanting those big-town opportunities for their children, we recommend that you search through our many Mesa, Chandler, and Gilbert listings. You’ll find nationally-ranked private schools for young students of every grade, as well as a multitude of after-school and summer programs that expose your child to everything from classical guitar and jazz saxophone to glass-blowing and black-smithing.
To say there’s something here for everyone would be cliché, so I won’t. Instead, I’ll encourage you to discover it for yourself.
We’re happy and sane here in our southwestern state, where misshapen opinions vanish in a desert sunset and steaming tempers fry up faster than an egg on the sidewalk in July. You may be looking to move after the election, but I can guarantee that we aren’t.
We would love it if you would join us.
