7 Reasons to Buy and Sell During the Summer

Mon, Aug 24th 2015 2:15 pm by Tammy Emineth Buyers

7 Reasons to Buy and Sell During the Summer [in Sedona]7 Reasons to Buy and Sell During the Summer

Not everyone is lucky enough to choose when they move whether you live in Sedona or elsewhere. For many people, it is just a waiting game. They can’t move until they either sell their current house or close on a new home. Moving is almost always secondary to the buying or selling.

However, if you are blessed enough to have the opportunity to choose when you are going to move, there is absolutely no question that the summer season is the ideal time to do it!

No matter your family’s situation, just about everyone is better off to move sometime between Memorial Day and Labor Day. And that is exactly the reason summer is the most popu...

Sedona Vortexes | What to See, When to See it and What it is

Thu, Jul 23rd 2015 2:49 pm by Tammy Emineth Sedona

Why do people come in droves to Sedona? The wine? Sure. The beauty of the red rocks? Of course. However, there's another "out of this world" reason people flock to this majestic place of natural beauty....to witness being amidst a vortex. A vortex? What's a vortex? A vortex, by definition, is a mass or whirling fluid or air; a whirlpool or whirlwind. Therefore, a vortex in Sedona is a place where you can stand and feel an influx, sensation or "whirl of air" about you. Some claim it's nature. Some claim it's in your mind/soul/spirit since the beauty and nature of Sedona is so majestic, it awakes a sort of "spiritual" awareness within you. Still others claim, it's extra terrestrial. ...th...

Montezuma's Castle and Montezuma's Well

Thu, May 7th 2015 6:12 pm by Tammy Emineth Local

Montezuma's Castle and Montezuma's Wellhttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Montezuma_Castle_National_Monument

Montezuma's Castle is just a short 26 mile trip from Sedona. Truth is it was never a castle and Montezuma never lived there but just three miles from 1-17 at exit 289, at the end of the side road that winds down into the valley formed by Beaver Creek, you'll see what some have described as  a "prehistoric high-rise apartment building".

The castle sits nestled in the limestone cliff, 70 feet above the valley. It is a 5 story, 20 room dwelling that was built and resided in by the Sinagua Indians in the 12th century.

The ruins were first thought to be Aztec in origin...thus, its name. However, later it was discovered that was not the case.
