What separates me from everyone else? Simple Real Estate is my passion, not just some job. With over 20 years experience, I know what it takes to represent a buyer in todays fast-paced real estate market. I specialize in Active Adult Communities and Retirement Living which means I know the area inside and out. The Greater Northwest Valley, which includes communities such as Surprise, El Mirage, Youngtown, Sun City, Sun City West, and Peoria is a retirement paradise! We have everything out here! We enjoy year round activities including golf, hiking, biking, baseball, resort style recreation facilities, family entertainment, shopping, charming restaurants and more! As a licensed Real Estate Broker for over 25 years, my husband and I became interested in Surprise, AZ after visiting our friends here over the past 10 years. Originally from the Pacific Northwest, my husband, Don Tuttle, a retired Army veteran, found the Arizona climate helped ease some of his aches and pains so we made the move and havent looked back since! There is literally so much to do out here! From local bands and live entertainment to some of the best restaurants in the country, my husband and I have enjoyed it all! Truly, nothing beats this weather! Sure, there are a few hot months, but that is why they invented air conditioning! When it gets too hot, a quick drive 2 hours north to Flagstaff and you are in the beautiful ponderosa pine trees enjoying the crisp mountain air! Better yet, lets hit the lake! Phoenix has 6 area lakes to serve the community along with the Salt River and Gila River recreation areas, all within a hour or so drive! There you can enjoy a bit of hiking, mountain biking, swimming, boating, kayaking, and more! This is literally an adult play land!
