Meet the Neighbors: Jon and Annice on Amaranth Trail
If you’ve lived in the community for a while, you’ve probably been introduced to Jon and Annice. Shea Preferred Realty Group helped them sell their Chandler home before they moved to EncanterraÂ® many years ago. Theyâ€™re currently building another home at EncanterraÂ®, the newly designed Cannes plan which fits them perfectly. Our team recently assisted them in selling their Genova plan on Amaranth Trail, and we negotiated a lease back for their home so they only have to move once! We love hearing how happy Jon and Annice were with both home sales; here’s what they had to say about their experience with our team…
About six years ago, we visited EncanterraÂ® to attend a Good Life Concert with a neighbor from our Chandler community. It was love at first sight! A few weeks later were signing papers to build our new house. A special Thank You to Todd Sitz, with EncanterraÂ®, for helping us through the build process.
Now, five years later, we are building our second home in Encanterra. In both instances we asked Ben Leeson and his team, at Shea Preferred Realty Group, to sell our homes and we couldnâ€™t be happier. They assisted us through every step and made the selling process as easy as could be. We were amazed that it only took a few weeks, in the heat of the summer, to get our houses sold. We love living in EncanterraÂ® and never would consider living anywhere else.
Thanks again to Ben, TJ, Lacey and Michelle.

Things to Do in Phoenix This Fall
This fall is the season for festivals and fairs across the city. Check out this list of Everything You Must Do in Phoenix This Fall from Thrillist, and celebrate the variety of Arizona cuisine and culture. With festivals for tacos, beer, chile peppers and garlic (just to name a few!), plus the State Fair and tons of great live music, thereâ€™s something fun for everyone.
Whom to list with, does it matter?
If you look at the listings and sales over the past 12 months, you will notice the agents who occasionally list in the community, especially those who list one property each year or so, have staggering days on market and outrageous price reductions during the duration. Their only hope for a buyer is through the MLS or an occasional open house. They also must solely rely on MLS for comps and in this community, the exact home can vary by $100,000 in options alone, not including lot premiums. How would any agent ever know what recent sales had in exact options? They donâ€™t, which could cost you tens of thousands in resale value. In nearly every case, that discount friend or referral agent on paper may save you 1% or so, but in reality (proven by data) it will usually cost you 5 times the savings. Please seriously consider these facts when looking for professional representation.
