Gordon Baker's Blog Posts
The east valley including Gilbert, Chandler, Mesa, Queen Creek, San Tan Valley, Sun Lakes, Tempe and Gold Canyon provide affordable housing and an excellent quality of life. Helping buyers relocate carries the added responsibility of educating families about the aspects of a community such as education, parks and recreation, transportation, and the intangible qualities of town or city.
Waterfront and Lake Community Real Estate
Gilbert and Chandler are home to the majority of the lake communities in the Phoenix valley. Waterfront homes and communities such as Val Vista Lakes, The Islands, Ocotillo, and Pinelake Estates are some of the more well known lake communities in the valley. Another area of expertise is water ski property. Three of the six private water ski communities in the Phoenix valley are located in Gilbert. To educate and assist those interested in waterfront property, Gordon created PhoenixWaterfrontTalk, the only blog about valley lake communities, waterfront homes and water ski property. PhoenixWaterfrontTalk provides lake community profiles, information about city parks, restaurant reviews, detailed explanation about Phoenix's water supply, and details of water ski lake water quality standards.
Multi-generational Homes in the Phoenix Area
Changes in demographics indicate the increasing need for homes that fit the needs of more than one generation. Elderly parents find the need to live with their son or daughter who are also raising children. They become caregivers for both their parents and their children and join the what has become known as the "sandwich generation". Therefore, housing must include features such as two master bedrooms, a guest suite or quarters, or a casita. To educate buyers about these special housing opportunities, the blog OurPhoenixFamilyHome was created. Many homebuilders in Phoenix including Gilbert, Chandler, Mesa, and Queen Creek have introduced floor plans that cater to these needs.
Homes with enhanced accessibility features in the Phoenix area and east valley are required by those with handicap or wheelchair needs. I have created a website page Phoenix Handicap & Wheelchair Homes that furnishes information about visitability, universal design and accessibility features such as roll in showers, zero grade ramps, and widened doorways.
