In 2002 I relocated to Prescott Arizona from Long Beach California. I knew I wanted a change of lifestyle. My kids - two wonderful girls who today are both PHDs- were off to college and I had empty nest syndrome. So I quit my grandfathered in, cozy corporate job and moved on an impulse to Prescott, never looking back for a moment, except to give thanks to avoiding the traffic and closed in high-pressure lifestyle.
So that brings us to what I love here. For one thing, there is the downtown courthouse square. Bloomtree has an office there. But most of all you can enjoy everything from country cloggers to Prescott Idol. Sit on the grass and listen to a concert, watch the Tsunami on Square events, the children singing Christmas Carols as the courtyard lights are lit. There is nothing like downtown Prescott life on the square. From Arts & Craft shows to Antique Autos, to food trucks. Life is good on the square!
I have two favorite events each year - not certain which is my personal favorite. The first is Aker Night, which may still have my top vote. It is in December and there is always a chill in the air. The downtown shops remain open for the evening, serving not only excellent entertainment, but cookies, hot cocoa, and hot cider. Wandering in and out of the quaint shops you will find everything from classical music to belly dancing, to bluegrass. Barbershop quartets, steel drum bands, and rock n roll. It is an amazing event. OK, maybe this is my favorite it is hard to beat. And it lives on donations that support upcoming local talent, so PLEASE drop a couple of bucks in one of the donation baskets to be grateful for the free event and help upcoming youth with their music educations. It keeps our local arts alive and thriving. Also, let's face it, where else on earth can you get this type of community feel and entertainment for so little investment?
The other thing we have here that is an unbelievable find in the Prescott Film Festival. If you are a fan at all of any of the independent or international film festivals you will know that it is nothing to have to pay over $500.00 to attend a week at one of these. Again, Prescott is a true find to the movie world in the fact it is fun and informative, features many of the same films as the others, yet is affordable.
Call me if you want to know what other things there are to do here.

"I hired Ryan Lowry and his team to sell my home. He was very precise in his plan, he had good marketing and was always on call for me when I needed him. He explained everything in detail and we just clicked. At any time that I had a question, I would call in and they were always ready with and answer and if they didn't have an answer they delved into it and found out what was needed to be known. I didn't have too many showings because my house sold so rapidly. Ryan Lowry, I am very proud to say sold my ouse in 3 days- far beyond anything I ever expected. I enjoyed the marketing aspect of the videoing, it showed my property really well- inside and out. Without that, it might have taken quite a while longer to sell my home. If I was selling another home I would definitely use Ryan Lowry and his team and I would recommend them highly. I feel like everything they did was perfect in terms of marketing, showing my home- I believe we only showed it 3 times before it sold. In addition to selling my home, I decided to also I use Ryan to purchase a home. They went above and beyond in helping me to locate a home that I could afford in my area and still be happy!"
