map of arizona showing scottsdale real estateLate last year I received a call from a man who moved to Arizona for a job offer. He got my name from a prior client of mine in Illinois. He couldn't remember her name as it was from a series of friends and relatives that passed my name along to him because of my prior client's referral. I contacted my client to see if she was the one that referred him, and she confirmed. It was bothering me that he didn't know who it was since I always like to thank anyone that sends me a referral.

He was coming from my prior state of Illinois

In fact, he was coming from the same town we lived in before we moved to Arizona back in 2009. He and his wife owned a large house that they didn't have to sell. But even though they didn't have to sell that one to make a…

the entrance to carlsbad tavern in scottsdale azDid you ever go back to a restaurant that you thought you loved and remembered why you stopped going? That was the revelation when we went back to Carlsbad Tavern in Scottsdale after many years from our last visit.

Our friend, who used to live in Arizona, was visiting us and wanted to go there. He was the person that introduced Carlsbad Tavern to us many years ago. I had such good memories.

It looks cute as soon as you walk up to the entryway, which is nicely lit at night. Then you step into the pretty patio with a waterfall.
