A Friendly Note to my Neighborhood-
I sincerely hope that each person reading this is doing well, staying healthy and strong. I hope, like me, you have found the personal strength to rise above the challenges not only for your family but for our community.
I wanted to make this “Neighborhood Note” a bit more personal. Since I have been spending more time around my home and less time in my car, I a noticing things about our community that have made me smile and remember why I “Love Where I Live” – the Arrowhead Ranch area in Glendale – so much! I also would like to share with you a bit about my personal journey that has led me to Arrowhead.
My favorite thing was seeing all the chalk art on the sidewalks around Arrowhead Loop – including a few Grateful Dead verses – that really brought joy to my morning walks! I love seeing families riding their bikes, walking their dogs and runners and exercise enthusiasts out on Arrowhead Loop.

My husband Jeff’s position with American Express afforded us the opportunity to relocate to Arizona. We moved here from Long Island, NY in October 1995 with my 19-month old daughter. I was excited for our move but still cried the entire 5-hour plane ride ! Leaving our family and friends and all that we knew was a huge leap for us. Prior to our move, I worked for over 10 years in the medical industry. I became a full-time licensed Realtor in 2003.
Some of the things I remember the most about the early years:
-The Yellow Pages were my best friend. (Can you relate?)
-ABCO was the only supermarket located on 67th Ave south of Beardsley Rd.
-I attended the groundbreaking ceremony for the new elementary school – now knows as Legend Springs – back in 1998.
-The sweet smell of citrus from the orange groves that made up a large portion of the Arrowhead area…something I still miss!
I would love to hear about your journey and the reasons why you “Love Where We Live”! Connect with me via phone, email, or look for me on Social Media!
