My wife and I plan to retire to the Mesa/Gilbert/Chandler, AZ area within two years.....maybe 18 months. My father-in-law has a patio home/gated community in Mesa he is willing to sell to us, and we like it.
But.....we want to look around. We'll be in Mesa for two weeks this month and would greatly appreciate having a Bogleheads recommendation of a realtor or two that we could talk with and maybe see some townhouses or patio home, etc.
Prices are beginning to move in the Phonix area. If we find the right place at a good price, we might buy now and move in mid-2014.
My wife is flying down next week, and I am following her one week later. My FIL is a Minneapolis snow-bird, and after 25 years of AZ winters, this is his last season "in the Sun".
Any realtor's names would be a huge favor....we have none.
Easy does it/Live & Let Live/One day at a time. Thanks Bill.
