Things To Do In Arizona

Hi Friends,

 

Here is the Newsletter “Things to Do in November, 2020!”

 

Here are some more fun things to do in November – with the cooler weather we are seeing more opportunities for outdoor activities!!

 

OK – it’s time for some shameless self-promotion.  I am a full-time real estate agent and I have been helping people to buy and sell real estate for over 30 years.  Please call me with any of your real estate needs.  My experience extends from the first time homebuyer to working with the savvy investor.

 

I hope that you will find something to do that is perfect for you.  I love getting feedback, so please let me know if you enjoyed any of these activities or if there are others that you think I should include.  Have a great November and a very Happy Thanksgiving!!
