Moving from one place to another is fraught with challenges. Don’t be surprised if the ordeal takes a bigger toll on you than you anticipate, because none of us are getting any younger. That’s why it’s important to pick agents who have understanding, patience… and a willingness to coddle a bit when it’s needed. It’s likely you’ll need all three.
When people have spent most of their lives watching out for underhanded thieves and thugs, it’s hard to get them to relax. But when you are in Prescott, you are safe. You can let your guard down and rest easy… but it might take you a while.
When it comes to real estate, personal and family matters can loom large – larger than counter tops and 3-car garages. In this episode, we share some difficulties our clients have had trying to reconcile family demands, financial constraints, and their desire to make a new start.
hello hello hello pickle peeps hey peeps this is diane bro with my better half sometimes better half randall bro correct rumbling we’re in the van again we’re trying uh a dash cam still got some grumbling going on on the road so we thought that would be kind of cool in the pickle van driving around keep it keep it uh keep it jumping keep it jumping spicy that’s kind of spicy yeah because yeah we’ve been in uh we’ve been in lockdown for a while yeah exciting so today we’re going to talk about the many terrains of prescott yes so we have people that come in and they have preconceived notions of what prescott is and very different preconceived notions and the answer is we’re all those things we are we have many different types of terrain uh you can drive within five minutes and be in something that looks entirely different than where we just were so if you are a tree person or a forest person we got an area we got it yeah that’s kind of what i thought of about prescott i guess people described it as a mountain town well a mountaintop town to me is a place that’s well mountainous and has like lots of pine trees like pine tree forests yes and we absolutely have that we do yeah and so what’s nice is those particular areas are a little bit higher elevation uh but they are surrounded by pine trees some areas are also bordered by the state national forest it’s lovely it’s beautiful it’s going to be a little you’ll get a little more cooler weather up there you get a little more snow than the winter season you know that’s negligible but what’s beautiful about the tree the trees and the forested sections i mean you really feel like you’re in a tree house yeah some of these homes are built off the side of a mountain and all you hear is the swaying and the wind in the pine trees yeah it’s gorgeous it’s gorgeous it’s it’s just beautiful very peaceful very nice so if that is where your heart is we have that we have that section to take that and then that most of the areas in town that have lots and lots of pine trees are the southwest section of town yes if you go a little further north uh we’ll show you scenes from uh the haciampa area which is uh is kind of like our our next terrain the trees tend to thin out a little bit but still lots of terrain lots of drought that has and boulders yeah trees and boulders trees and boulders which is a really cool combo kind of my favorite combo really yeah um you’ll have the boulders plus you’ll still have the beauty and the greenness of the trees yes um and a little bit mountainous yes so that’s cool yeah and some people do not want any terrain they don’t want any hills they don’t want they want it flat yeah you know and so a good area for that but they still want trees is williamson valley williamson valley so lots of uh lots of flatter land still get a fair amount of rock um you know you can have some rock formations most of the homes can be done on a single level because there’s more flat land right um you’re not looking through trees so if you’re an area with lots of trees well your view is going to be trees sometimes you can’t see past the trees to see what’s beyond uh they have granite mountain in the distance yeah and out in the williamson valley area flatlands but lots of juniper uh scrub brush it’s kind of looks like an old western town it’s kind of a western like you’re just waiting for those tumbleweeds to come come through so totally different section totally different feel and one section that’s really popular it’s kind of in between a little bit more terrain than williamson valley but not a lot of trees is sort of midtown around the uh the area prescott lakes uh there is uh there are some homes that are built like on the edge of a cliff you know the the stemwall construction uh which is nice but there is some flat land some singles and again you have views of the dells willow lake watson lake um so that’s a little more of a planned subdivision so it’s beautifully landscaped so you see lots of green um but you will see some great distant views of granite mountain thumb butte uh and the dells and the dells which is our last area we wanted to talk about which is not unique to prescott but pretty close there are only a few areas in the world who have these kinds of uh rock formations and we are one of them and they are just stunning i love it it’s uh very similar kind of similar to the rocks in sedona but these are we call the fred flintstone for you people of our generation you’ll know what we’re talking about fred flintstone rocks and it’s right here in the heart of prescott lots of kayaking around there lots of hiking in there um it’s beautiful very very peaceful so some people like to live around those dells and see those rocks and the rocks and it is super cool um so prescott has it all so whatever your preconceived notions some preconceived notions we don’t have some people think that prescott is a desert town no we are not we are not a desert town we have four seasons here folks four beautiful seasons yep none are extreme okay we are not desert this is not phoenix this is not uh yeah you know scottsdale yeah this is very moderate you know temperatures yeah we’re not like flagstaff we’re not high enough to really get snowbound we don’t have elk here no uh we have a fickle lady you know she’s pretty wild yeah yeah i can be after a couple martinis absolutely it’s pets absolutely but anyways so when you come to prescott be open we will take you to all sections especially for your first visit and then you can decide oh i love the rocks oh i know i’ve got to be in trees end of sentence yeah then we can really hone in on the search and just go to those sections and be open to the possibility that you might
