Sold In 24 Hours

Sold in 24 hours and for $16,000 more than 2 model matches.

 How did we do it?  How can you sell your home fast?  Let us give you a little background on this listing first.  

74 days ago we took a listing from one of our toughest clients ever.  "Tough," meaning that they really put us through the hot seat before they gave us the listing.  These clients were very demanding and  expected a lot in a very short period of time.  We felt like we were on one of those episodes of "Million Dollar Listing".  Our clients wanted their home sold in less than 30 days and for $26,000 more than 2 exact model matches that were currently on the market. These two homes were so close in similarities that it was obvious that the one priced the lowest would be sold first.  They both had been on the market for more than 40 days already and our clients only wanted to sign a 60 day listing agreement.  You can imagine what we were thinking.  We almost didn't call them back.

We as most realtors are not in business to just list homes, our job is to sell them.  This task seemed impossible but through a bit of negotiation and expertise we came to a list price we could both agree on, and yes, we signed a 60 day listing agreement.  Our co-workers thought we were crazy, and to be honest my wife thought I was crazy as well.  We invested almost $900 into listing this home and only had 60 days to sell it for top dollar and that is just what we did.  We are happy to say we got this home under contract in 1 day at full price and we and our sellers were more than pleased.  

Are you looking to list your home?  Do you want to sell fast and for top dollar?  Give us a call for a free home evaluation and the secrets to selling quick.  We will come to you and go over a plan to sell your home just as we did this one.

Seville Golf & Country Club Membership Fees

Seville Golf & Country Club Slides and Kid areaSeville Golf & Country Club Membership Fees

      So you want to know how much a Seville Golf & Country Club membership fees, but you have searched everywhere and can't find a straight answer?  You would think that finding the cost to join a club should be easy right?  Wrong!!!  I am not sure why these country clubs think that it is such a great idea to keep you guessing, but lucky for you I have the answers.  Before we just give you the answer, we must ask one thing.  If we tell you now, will you keep reading this blog post?  Or, will you just go down to the bottom where you can find the answer to your long sought after question?  Before you head to the end of this post, you may like to read about some of our personal experiences at the club.   We consider ourselves the Seville experts as we have lived, played, and worked in this master planned community since it's inception.  We were lucky enough to have seen the very first and last house be built, right down to the last nail.  Having sold homes here for the last 11 years, we pride ourselves with first hand experiences and knowledge of this wonderful place.Boleros Restaurant-Southwest Chicken Wrap  Just a little over 15 years ago Seville Golf & Country Club was an orange orchard and now it is one of the most sought after communities in Gilbert Arizona.  Still today, there are orange groves throughout the community which produce a very pleasant and distinct smell that only comes from this one of a kind community.  A true resort style club awaits you in this effluent part of Gilbert.  In fact, Seville is the only Country club in Gilbert and boasts the tag of "the second safest city in America." Who knew the town of Gilbert had such a diamond in the rough? Where else can you get access to world class golf and resort like amenities?  The pool area is one of a kind and definitely not something you would typically see in an area with such diversely priced real estate.  You don't have to make millions to take advantage of the Seville life.  Homes range from the high $100,000's to well into the millions.  The streets are lined with gorgeous lush landscape and beautifully maintained parks.  There are miles of walking trails to keep you and the kids fit.  

      The clubhouse has a state of the art fitness center which provides more than 30+ group fitness classes, a kids center, a spa, salon, tennis courts, meeting rooms, a cafe, basketball courts, pools, splash pad, a restaurant, a bar and grill, golf practice facilities, and of course a golf shop.  The kids love the water slides and the adults can catch some sun on one of the many lounge chairs.  You really need to experience it yourself.  We ate at Boleros restaurant the other day and the food did not disappoint once again.  Everything we have eaten here has been fantastic.  If you have any questions about the club and or homes in the neighborhood, contact us for your own private tour of the neighborhood and club at www.gilbertazhomes.net or 480-788-1819. Here it is, the prices of the club.  Please check back for updates as they do frequently change this information.

Best Place To Live In Gilbert Arizona

If your considering entering the Gilbert real estate market, you might be asking yourself where is the best place to live in the city of Gilbert.  With Gilbert's recognition of being the second safest place to live in America, you really can not go wrong when choosing a spot in Gilbert.  The Gilbert real estate market could potentially make that decision for you.  The growth of Gilbert has affected the cities home prices as they steadily rise every year.  Before we get into our picks for best communities in Gilbert, lets first consider a few things.  Gilbert is a true suburb, we are located about 20-30 minutes from the center of Phoenix.  Michele and I are going to put these things in the order that are most important to us, yours may vary.

The first thing that we consider is, how new are the surroundings.  We love the outdoors and need parks and playgrounds for the kids and hiking, biking, and nearby shopping for the adults.  We typically gravitate towards the newer parts of Gilbert, not that the older parts are bad or anything.  We just like the new feeling when we are shopping, eating, or just cruising around.  It's hard to describe, but its a feeling you get in your surroundings, sometimes you just feel better in certain places than others.  The second thing we consider are the home prices.  Some communities are much more pricey than others, usually due to location or the quality of the home construction.  Thirdly we look for distance to the freeway, we probably speak for everyone when we say we don't want to spend all day in the car.  Number 4 is schools, although I can't think of any Gilbert schools that are bad, we look mainly for the commute.  We have busy lives and don't really have the time to drive our 4 children to school every morning.  I guess it doesn't help that for the last 7 years we have been spoiled, our kids can walk about 100 yards and they are on school property.  Yea, that is real nice!  Since we can't all live across the street to our children's schools, we really should think about how they are going to get there.  The last thing we consider when looking for a new home is actually the home itself, sad I know, but the other things are just more important to us.  Now that we have our 5 things to consider when choosing a community, we will give you our personal expertise of Gilbert real estate and the communities with in it.

View all Seville Golf & Country Club Homes For Sale - Our top pick community would have to be Seville Golf & Country Club.  Although there are many reasons, golf would be the #1 reason.  If you hadn't already known, I play golf professionally.  I love real estate, but if we are being honest, golf is my passion.  Seville is the only private country club in Gilbert and it offers amenities like no where else.  Tennis, swimming, socializing, salon, spa, fitness center, a restaurant, and golf are just some of the things Seville offers.  Seville is beautifully landscaped with flowers, shrubs, trees, and orange groves.  The smells that radiate through the communities when the orange trees are blossoming are fantastic.  We love the outdoors and the miles and miles of trails that meander throughout the community are great to go for jogs or bike rides with the kids.  Michele and I lived in the community for almost 2 years and we had family living there for much longer.  The people are great there and we made a lot of friends.  The homes in Seville are plentiful, from countless floor plans, to home prices for anyone's budget.

View All Shamrock Estates Homes For Sale - Another community dear to our hearts as this is where we currently live, but it's not all prejudice, there are some legit reasons this has made our list.  Shamrocks Estates is Main Photo (1)located across the street from Seville Golf & Country Club So many communities now days are cram packed together.  I picture myself jumping roof top to roof top sometimes.  Not sure why because that's just weird, but I can't get over how close some of these houses are together.  Shamrock Estates is very much the opposite to that.  Shamrock Estates offers generous sized lots without having to own a riding lawn mower.  Even the Olympic gold medalist for long jump couldn't jump to my neighbors house.  We like our space and Shamrock Estates has lots of it.  The communities streets are all lined with trees, which is unique, there are not many communities with tree lined streets in Gilbert, or even the Phoenix metro area in general.  They provide much needed shade.  Shamrock Estates has a community school at the center of the community that is ranked a 10 out of 10 by GreatSchools.org.  We have amazing parks throughout the community that the kids love to play on and if we want to go hiking, the San Tan Regional Park is less than 10 minutes away.

whitewing-at-germannView All Whitewing Homes For Sale - If your looking for luxury, you will want to look at homes in Whitewing at Germann Estates.  Home of the 2013 Street of Dreams, this community defines luxurious living.  Each home sits on a minimum a half acre lot.  These luxury homes feature the latest in interior design, technology, breath taking landscape design, energy efficiency, and top of the line construction quality.  Just minutes from fine dining and world class shopping, Whitewing has everything needed to live in the "lap of luxury".  Whitewing is home to sports stars, business men, and retirees.  Whitewing re-defines luxury in the Gilbert real estate market.    

View All Circle G Ranches Homes For Sale If your looking for acreage, Circle G Ranches is the very best.  With locations all over Gilbert your circle-g-ranches-mapsure to find the right spot to call home.  Circle G Ranches generally come with at least 1 full acre and generally have horse privileges.  All homes in Circle G Ranches are custom and there are still many lots available to build on.  The Circle G communities have CC&R to protect it's residents from someone under building for the neighborhoods.  This protects home values and keeps your neighbor from parking run down cars in there front lawn.  :-) 

View All Vintage Ranch Homes For Sale This Fulton Homes community is located near the center of Gilbert.  Vintage Ranch is close to downtown Gilbert and all of it's amazing history.  Read all about Gilbert herevintage-ranch-in-gilbert Vintage ranch is home of semi-custom homes that will amaze.  All these homes sit on very large lots and most have basements.  Basements are rare in Arizona, not sure why as they are a great place to stay cool during the hot Arizona summers.  There are wonderful parks in the community and the Gilbert Schools are top rated.  Freeway access is just a few minutes away to the 202 and just a few extra minutes to the 60.  The reason we love this community so much is because of it's location and the build quality of the homes.  

There are certainly a lot more communities to choose from, but these are a good start.      

Cheers, The Myers!

Shamrock Estates Homes And Information

 We have lived in Shamrock Estates for the past 7 years and have loved every minute of it.  So many things about Shamrock Estates make us wonder if we will ever move.  Shamrock Estates is oneSan Tan Mountain Ride of those communities that make you feel like you can confide in all of your neighbors.  Gilbert, AZ. in general seems this way, but Shamrock Estates has something different. We are located at Higley and Ocotillo roads just Southeast of the 202 freeway and the San Tan Village Mall and Market Place. We have the gorgeous San Tan Mountain range just South of us and are only 10 minutes from the San Tan Regional Park where you can hike, bike, and horseback ride.  I personally love to mountain bike and I even got my wife Michele to shred some dirt.

     Shamrock Estates has multiple parks, basketball courts, ramada's, barbeques's, volleyball courts, miles of walking paths, and a K-6 school.  There are multiple parks in Shamrock Estates and 2 main parks, but one stands out above the rest and is referred to as Rockwell Park.  This park is giant and comes equipped with basketball and volleyball courts, 2 jungle gyms, several ramada's, and barbeque's. The park is actually off the street of Rockwell, hence the name.  Although this park may trump others in size, there are still many others peppered throughout the community that are quite large.  The community school is CTA Freedom, and it is a top tier school ranked 10 out of 10 by Great Schools and is part of the amazing Chandler Unified School District.  Our kids have attended this school for going on 6 years now and we can honestly say that the school is second to none.  Our kids are all 1 year ahead in math, reading, and other subjects.  It really is quite amazing what they accomplish in one year at this school.  We will say however, that this school is not for the faint of heart, it takes a lot of hard work on your students part and on the parents.  It is both challenging but rewarding.

East Park-r11     In the Spring, Fall, and Winter times you will see multiple families out and about on bikes and at the parks. Our community is very family oriented and our kids have friends in all parts of the community.  A sense of safety can be found here and we know this first hand.  Years ago, our youngest son learned to climb over our view fence at 20 months old.   He escaped not once but twice and both times a neighbor brought him home.  We were relieved to know that we have so many great neighbors that actually took the time to find out where he lived.  We since have installed alarms and locks at heights he could not reach and luckily it has not happened again.  When my grandmother was living with us her little dog got loose and was lost for a couple of days.  He was soon returned by someone in our community that had been diligently looking for it's owner.  It is a huge comfort to know that our neighbors have our backs.

Shamrock Estates is close to shopping, dining, activities, freeway access, and churches.  Built in 2005 with more than 800 homes in our community, there are plenty of options to choose from.  We have homes ranging in sizes from about 1,500 sq. ft. to over 5,ooo.  Our homes sit on an average of 9,000 square foot lots.  We all love our neighbors, but that doesn't mean we have to be right on top of them.  I challenge anyone that is looking for the perfect community to find one that has the space between each home that this community does.  It's virtually non-existent these days and that is one of the many reasons that Shamrock Estates is so unique and desirable.

Our Top 5 Things To Consider Before Making An Offer

5 Things to Consider Before You Buy!


There are so many things to consider before making an offer on your Gilbert home, but all too often home buyers put the cart before the horse.  They get so caught up in how nice a home is that they forget to consider some of the most important things.  Today's quantity of impulse buyers is out of control. According to CreditCards.com we can be an impulse buyer when we are either excited, bored, angry, sad, or even intoxicated.  CreditCards.com surveyed 1,000 adult Americans and 75 percent of them admitted to making an impulse decision.  49 percent of those decisions were made due to excitement, 30 percent from being bored, 22 percent from sadness, 9 percent from anger or intoxication.  In fact the impulse to buy is not prejudice, the rich, poor, White, Black, Asian, Latino, Republican or Democrat can all be impulsive. We all have this flaw in one way or another.  The trick is making sure it doesn't happen at the wrong time and buying a home would be one of those wrong times.  Follow these 5 things before you make your offer:

  1. Check out the schools.  What School District is it in?  How are they rated?  Where are they?  Do they have a school bus service?  Are they within walking distance?  These are all necessary questions that should be considered if you have kids in school.  Even if you do not have kids, these are important things, it could affect what your home is worth in the future.
  2. Learn about the community.  Consider that when your shopping for a home, your not only buying a home, your also buying into the community.  This is such an important part of the home buying process.  Drive the community in the morning, noon, and night, this will give you an idea of how noisy or quiet the community may be.  Drive it on a weekend when people are home this is generally when a community comes alive. Talk with the neighbors and check out the local newspaper online, this can give you some good insight on what kind of community it truly is.
  3. Commuting.  For most home buyers this is at the top of their list when deciding where to buy.  With the access of online maps and GPS systems this information is right at our finger tips, file000897811811-r30however, nothing is better than a real life experience.  Take a drive to and from work at the hours you would generally leave for work.  Maybe the route your GPS suggests is too busy, or maybe there are too many stop signs, or just something that bothers you about that route.  Make sure the things you need are on your route, or at least near enough that it is not out of your way.  How many times does your spouse ask you to stop on your way home for work to grab dinner, groceries, or even the kids?  Knowing where you spend most your time will save you travel time and even more important, family time.
  4. Are there amenities?  Ask yourself, where do I spend my free time.  What do you and your family enjoy doing?  Is there a lake, golf course, dinning, shopping, hiking, biking, or fitness center nearby?  All great questions you should probably get the answers to.  No one wants to love there house only to be bored out of their mind.
  5. Are there additional expenses to owning this particular home?  Most communities have an HOA with monthly, quarterly, semi-annual, or yearly fees.  Some HOA's have capital improvement fees, or additional assessment fees on top of your regular monthly fees.  Some homes have a private well where you may have additional maintenance costs.  Other homes may have a propane tank that runs the appliances, heater, or water heater.  These private utilities can sometimes have enormous costs that generally go un-noticed.  Does your home have solar panels?  Are they owned, or are they leased?  Unexpected costs are common and without the proper research it can be a costly and painful mistake.

Buying A Home Is Exciting, Don't Be Impulsive, It Could Cost You Big!

Proper representation is a must in today's fast paced real estate market, if you would like more information on your local housing market, and want experienced representation, call or visit us at www.gilbertazhomes.net!  We would be happy to help you locate your dream home!   Cheers,

Agritopia, A Truly Unique Community

Its not too often that a community gets recognized by the New York Times especially if your community is thousands of miles away in the Town of Gilbert, AZ., but that is just what happened when they built Agritopia one of the first "Agrihoods" in the nation.  The community was built and designed by the Johnston family who owned the farm that the homes sit on right now.  The unique thing about this community is that the homes are built around a working farm producing fresh produce for it's residents. Every Wednesday for about $100 a month residents can pick up there produce at the Agritopia Farmers Market where there are fruits, veggies, eggs, and honey.  And if that's not cool enough, it also boasts "Joe's Farm Grill" a grill within the community that cooks up the fresh fruits  and veggies into delicious meals.  People from all over Gilbert make this a regular lunch stop as the food is fabulous.  There is also a Coffee Shop next door to the grill so you can always get your daily dose of caffeine.

Agritopia Coffe Shop Gilbert, AZ.Agrihoods as they like to call them are rare, but are getting a lot of recognition by the media outlets across the nation. Check out this article from the New York Times.  Developers across the nation are also taking note as there are already new plans for more of these unique style communities coming.  It seems that this could be the wave of the future and I think we will be a better country because of it.  The community has tree lined streets with uniquely styled homes.  The vision of the Johnston family was to create not only a self sustaining community, but one that does not keep it's residences in there own little bubbles.  Throughout the neighborhood you will notice that the streets are a bit narrower and the fences a bit shorter.  The idea was to not hide from your neighbors, but to embrace the bonds of a community and break down the physical barriers.  The homes are craftsman style homes which is a truly unique feature to Gilbert and I dare say to maybe the entire valley.  Many of the homes have fully finished basements which is a huge bonus when the summer months come along, allowing for some much appreciated cooler homes.    

The Community has 5 play grounds, 2 volleyball courts, 5 basketball courts, 1 tennis court, community center, community pool,  and miles & miles of walking and biking trails.  Agritopia is centrally located in Gilbert, AZ., one of the safest cities in America.  A newly built Top Golf is literally across the street and full golf courses are not much further.  Shopping and fine dining is just down the street at the San Tan Village Mall.  Just a short 15 minute drive and you can hike, bike, or go on horseback at the San Tan Mountain trails.

The real estate market is good and property values continue to rise in Agritopia and Gilbert, AZ. for that matter.  You can find homes for sale that range in price from the $130K-$675K and can be almost 5,000 square feet in size.  There are 452 single family residences all built by Scott Homes.  The community of Agritopia is located in the Gilbert School district, which is a top rated district according to Great Schools.  There is even a school within the community, "Gilbert Christian Schools" that has grades pre-K-12th.  The School sits next to the community center which has activities such as tennis, swimming, community events, and includes a synthetic putting green.

Part of this master planned community is the Agritopia Senior Living facility that sits on a five-acre parcel just south of the community center.  With more than 140,000 square ft. and 118 units the 2 story building has offices, a kitchen, wellness center, dining areas, and outdoor/indoor lifestyle amenities.  Agritopia is re-defining neighborhoods in Gilbert, AZ. and has reached beyond our Arizona borders with positive effects that the rest of the nation can see.  Agritopia is a definite must see!
