“My husband and I enjoy taking a stroll down Main Street and having dinner at one of the many restaurants in the area. It is a great area to visit for tourists and locals alike.”

Historic Old Town Restaurants 

I bet you didn’t know…

Cottonwood had a reputation for being a big bootlegging area. This bootlegging was considered some of the best around and attracted people from areas as far away as Los Angeles and Phoenix. By 1920, Cottonwood was called the “Biggest Little Town in Arizona”. Cottonwood had more businesses than any other area, but there were only 300 residents in the local community.

Mae West and the Reputation for Bootlegging in Roaring ’20s

Mae West stayed at the Cottonwood Hotel before she was famous. She spent time in the historic section of Old Town during the heyday of Prohibition. Mae frequented all the Speak-Easy hide-aways up and down Main street. Visit this website to learn more about the history as well as the historic Cottonwood Hotel and dining/bars in the area.

Cottonwood Has Low Humidity and a Desert Feel

Without Constant Extreme Heat

Cornville Page Springs Market Report and homes for sale

Cottonwood is an area that is considered a semi-arid climate zone, just like Sedona 86336 and the rest of the Verde Valley. This area is a little warmer than Sedona.  It is about 1 hour north of the Sonoran Desert and about 40 minutes from the southern border of the Colorado Plateau.  Humidity is not a factor in personal comfort. Warmer and colder weather is less noticeable because of the lack of humidity. Another reason why staying hydrated is so important. Basically, an individual can tolerate much warmer and colder temperatures because humidity does not play a part. You can get detailed statistics at Weatherspark.com. For more information on Sedona weather go to Sedona-Weather.com.

Like Sedona, there is a mix of desert flora. The elevation of Cottonwood is about 3,455ft. The area within 2 miles of Cottonwood is covered by shrubs (83%), cropland (14%), and trees (12%), based on Info weatherspark.com.

 

Sight Seeing-Recreation Abounds in the Verde Valley

Montezuma Castle

Montezuma Castle (above)

Tuzigoot National Monument 

Tuzigoot is Apache for “crooked water” from nearby Peck’s Lake which is a cutoff meander of the Verde River. A two-story pueblo ruin was excavated in 1933-35 by Caywood & Spicer of U of A. President Roosevelt declared Tuzigoot Ruins as a National Monument.

The early days during the 1800s began the land rush.

Farmers and ranchers settled the area. They called the area Verde. Around 1915, Cottonwood started to spring up. Cottonwood (see pic above) got the name from the Cottonwood trees that rose up around the Verde river not far from where the Historic Old Town Cottonwood jail stands now.

Cottonwood began booming when many settlers wanted to own their own businesses and homes. It had a reputation for lawlessness because those who were kicked out of company towns such as Jerome came to settle. Also, there was an equal number of law-abiding citizens and families that also wanted to settle the area.

There are many other activities such as visiting National Monuments, Tuzigoot, Montezuma Castle and Well, horseback riding antique shopping, and did I mention golf? Also, you can find local hot air balloon rides beside many other attractions.

Cornville/Page Springs/Verde Santa Fe – Arizona 86325

Vibrant Retirement, Golf, and Rural Communities

Cornville ~~ Page Springs ~~  Verde Santa Fe are bedroom communities of Sedona 86336 and Cottonwood AZ. As legend has it, back in the 1800s, the Verde Valley pioneers decided on the name Cohnville – named after one of the families that lived there. When the papers came back from Washington, they read it as Cornville and the pioneers accepted it. The 1880 Census could not find anyone named Cohn in the Verde Valley, however, there was a Mr. Cone who purchased a homestead in what is now called Page Springs.

The appeal for Cornville / Verde Santa Fe is growing among those looking at buying a home for sale. The direct route of the 89A between Sedona and Cottonwood makes it very convenient to access those areas. Cornville and Page Springs are growing suburban areas that serve as bedroom communities for nearby Sedona and Cottonwood, Arizona. Cornville and Page Springs are located along scenic Oak Creek.

A big factor that drives buyers to the Cornville / Verde Santa Fe is housing prices are very modest compared to Sedona 86336. Buyers find this a better fit for their needs.

The rural character of Cornville is important to residents. It is a key component of the articles of the Cornville Community Association: “The Corporation is organized exclusively for charitable, educational and scientific purposes to maintain and enhance rural lifestyles, natural resources, economic values, health and safety within the Cornville postal area.”

Because Cornville has a more rural appeal with a small-town feel, there are large properties including ranches and agricultural-based properties that are mixed into the neighborhoods with smaller residential homes. Cornville is not an incorporated city. Support services are provided through Yavapai county. The agricultural base also supports wineries which will be discussed more in the Page Springs section.

Another draw to the community of Cornville is the proximity to Big Box shopping.

What Do Mae West, John Wayne, Elvis Presley, and Cottonwood AZ Have In Common?

Posted by On

Cottonwood Arizona – The Biggest Little City in Arizona 

Mae West

What Do Mae West, John Wayne, Burt Lancaster & Elvis Presley Have Common With Cottonwood Arizona 86326?

It was the 1800’s and the land rush was on in Northern Arizona.  Farmers & ranchers were looking for land to start a new life. The Verde Valley looked promising, so many settled in the area.  

Other people were looking to establish businesses and homes in the area to support these settlers.  They decided to establish the town we know as  Cottonwood today. Cottonwood got its name from the (Cottonwood) trees that line the Verde River behind the historical Sheriff’s Office and Jail. Cottonwood Historic Jail and Sheriff Office

In the early 1900s, other more unsavory characters, who were driven out of the company (mining) towns such as Clarkdale, decided to give Cottonwood ago.  The town developed a reputation of lawlessness even though there was a strong foundation of law-abiding families.  

Then Prohibition hit the nation and Cottonwood was no exception other than the fact that they developed some of the best bootlegging in Arizona.  The bootleggers in and around Cottonwood were some of the best and they were known far and wide.  People came as far away as Phoenix and Los Angeles.  

Enter Mae West! Before Mae was famous, she spent much of her time on what is Main Street in Old Town Cottonwood.  She was known in every Speak-Easy in the area.  Her Hollywood character was developed long before she ever hit the big screen.  Others who spent their downtime in Cottonwood include John Wayne, Burt Lancaster, and Elvis Presley. Old Town Cottonwood AZ Irrigation Canal

The City of Cottonwood took on a large project to refurbish the Old Town area and make it an attractive place with unique stores and great wine tasting rooms and eateries. Today it is a fun place to go to stroll the Main Street and check out all the shops while tasting a little of the flavor of the Old West. 

Cottonwood is not far from Sedona about a 20-minute drive but it has a couple of the key big block storefronts. Super Wal-Mart and Home Depot are located kitty-corner to the main intersection of SR 89A and SR 260.  There is also a major Regional (Verde Valley) Medical Center. This gives support to a lot of doctor offices and other medical facilities nearby.

 

 

Cottonwood Market Update*

 

The Cottonwood real estate market has a Median List Price of $409,949 and 14 days on market.  The current inventory is 36 homes and there is a Strong Seller’s Market Action Index of 74.

Sedona Arizona ~ “Javelina On Parade”

Javelinas On Parade ~ Sedona Arizona

 

Javelinas on Parade Sedona Arizona

Javelina On Parade” ~ Inside the Sedona Rouge Hotel & Spa is their restaurant “Reds”. I like to go there with clients and my husband because it is quiet and you can conduct business easily.  Besides, the food and service are good!  Right in the hotel foyer, you can find the artwork in the featured image above. 

Javelina on parade SedonaBack in 2005, Sedona decided to answer a call to Chicago’s “Cows on Parade” which was established in 1999. In Chicago, you would see cows painted in different artistic ways. 

Here in Sedona, highway construction was about to begin so the Chamber of Commerce and Sedona Arts Festival who were looking for ways to boost tourism, got this idea to create 50 pairs of Javelina. Businesses could sponsor Javelina on Parade Sedonathese for $2000, commission artists, and place them prominently somewhere adjacent to their business.  As you stroll the streets of West Sedona, Uptown, or Village of Oak Creek, you may see one of these pairs all gussied up.

They are a work of whimsical art!

Though Javelina may look like a wild boar or pig, they are in the peccary family.  They are native to North and South America.  Pigs were brought to the new world and are not related to Javelina. Javelinas seem to like fruits, vegetables, and garden plants and roots. But they will eat meat as well. Actually, they will eat just about anything.  They go after the grubs in the grass. This means that lawns are constantly being dug up.  They can roam as a large family of between 20 and 30 but normally in a smaller group of less than 10. In some cases, the alpha male will kick out the less dominant male to roam alone. You know when a Javelina is nearby because it stinks….a lot!  

Caution – Javelina are very skittish and they might bite if they are cornered.  Don’t get too close and don’t try to feed them especially out of your hand.

Sedona and All of Arizona – Pool Safety for the 4th of July!

Posted by On

Pool Safety 

Sedona Arizona

Pool Safety and Sun Up Homes for Sale - Sheri Sperry Coldwell Banker

Drownings in Arizona Rank Nearly Two Times National Average

Pool Safety – This is a very sad fact to report but a fact that needs to be brought to the attention of those who will be at pools with children over the 4th of July.  There is a spike in drownings on this holiday likely due to the fact that adult supervision of pools may be at a minimum for various reasons.

In 2016, the Arizona Department of Health and Safety (ADHS) started reporting incidents using hospitalization data. Previously, data was acquired mainly through the fire department reports. So data results from 2016 and beyond are not comparable to years prior.   Here is the link to the most recent Annual Report for the Drowning Prevention Coalition of Arizona published April 26, 2021. 

 

Heartbreaking Results

A heartbreaking reality…

In the mid-1980s, drownings for Arizona pre-schoolers ranked highest in the nation.  Recently, Arizona has dropped to 4th place for drownings of pre-school-aged children and is the number one cause of death for the ages of 1-4 years. 

I live in Yavapai County. In 2020, Yavapai County had 1 incident of the drowning of a child aged 0-4 years old and that number is unacceptable. All age groups equaled 6.  In Arizona’s largest county, Maricopa, where Phoenix and Scottsdale are located,  there were 136 incidents of drowning that were reported for that same age group and a total of 245 incidents for all age groups. 

These are reported incidents, not deaths. Each incident is preventableIt should also be noted that Maricopa and Pinal counties are the best at consistently reporting drownings.

Every hour, 42 people drown worldwide…(statistic from ComfyLiving – Blog – “25 Shocking Swimming Pool Stats…”)

 

 

 

A Very Serious Issue Nationwide


Pool Safety - Phoenix area swim lessons photo Adrian Marsh - The Republic

Arizona has a vigilant awareness campaign starting in January every year.  Even with that campaign, Arizona ranked 4th in the nation in 2017 of the 163 fatal drownings nationwide of children 15 years old and under. 

Arizona Ranked Number One For Pools

Arizona is ranked number one in the country for pools per capita at 1 pool for 8,628 people. Florida and Nevada are ranked number 2 and 3 respectively at 1 in 10,367 and 10,814. 

Top 10 Cities with Backyard Pools

According to KTAR News and Realtor.com, these are the top 10 medium-to-large cities in the country with the highest percentage of backyard pools. 

1. Coral Springs, Florida – 66 percent
2. Scottsdale, Arizona – 62 percent
3. Tempe, Arizona – 46 percent
4. Chandler, Arizona – 40 percent
5. Glendale, Arizona – 37 percent
6. Gilbert, Arizona – 37 percent
7. Clearwater, Florida – 32 percent
8. Clovis, California – 32 percent
9. Mesa, Arizona – 31 percent
10. Plano, Texas – 31 percent

Top 5 Factors that could increase the risk of a child drowning

* Being new parents of more than one child

* New owners of a pool or a new Arizona resident

* Living at an apartment or condo complex where the pool has minimal fencing

* Multiple children at a gathering

* Underestimating how mobile a child can be

~ ~ ~

 

Why a Spike of Drownings On Independence Day?

Adults need to be aware of where their children are anytime there is a pool available.  The party atmosphere coupled with alcoholic beverages and paying more attention to guests’ needs, the BBQ, as well as other games, can hinder the supervision of children around the pool. 

Everybody thinks that someone else is watching the kids and pool safety.  As we know, drowning can happen in a split second. 

A Supervision Plan Is The Key

There is a pretty simple solution for pool safety, having dedicated sober supervision with another sober adult switching every 15 to 20 minutes is the key. Equally important, turn the cell phones off and avoid any other distractions. Of course, this person should be a good swimmer and there should be someone available in earshot distance in case there is an incident.

Recently, we took our 5-year-old grandson to a resort in the Scottsdale area.  He is a very new swimmer. This is a very dangerous time for parents and guardians who need to be extra vigilant in watching kids of this age who lack experience.  Unfortunately, some may feel that they can take their eyes away from children for a short time because they can swim. Do not get caught up in this belief. 

 

Life Vests For Non-Swimmers

Children who cannot swim or are poor swimmers should be in an approved life vest anytime they are in the proximity of the pool or any water. Floaties are considered a toy. Do not be substitute floaties for a life vest to bypass pool safety. No exceptions to this rule. 

Again, following these simple rules could save a child’s life. 

 

Have a Safe and Sane Independence Day!

Is Hiking Allowed In Sedona During The Fires?

Posted by On

Full Closure In Effect For Coconino National Forest

From My Perspective…

Fires… Currently, there are 43,612 acres that have burned in the fires and there is 0% containment.  Sycamore Canyon has been evacuated.  This is about 14 miles northeast of Cottonwood.  ATVs are not allowed to be rented right now.  Rafting and kayaking down the Verde River are still allowed but tours are filling up fast. 

 

Around the state of Arizona, there are at least 24 fires burning.  We are in our driest season.  Hopefully, we will see more rain next week. 

 

At my home…

 

Early in the morning when the air is cool, the smoke is heavy and it is difficult to see the red rocks.  As the day warms up, the smoke rises, and a lot of it is pushed out of the area. You can smell the wood burning inside and outside the home. It is as if you are burning very fragrant wood in your fireplace. 

 

Many people come to Sedona to hike. Currently, all of our forests are completely closed.  There are police cars located at the entrance to the most popular trails.  One of those trails is where I live in Soldiers Pass.

 

If you are coming to Sedona to hike, there are no options to hike. These restrictions are in effect until further notice. All businesses are open.  The Sedona Airport is seeing heavy lift (CH 54) helicopters filing huge buckets of water to drop on the fires.  

See the violation enforcement below.

The notice below came directly from an email I received from the City of Sedona. The top two images are from The Sedona Fire Dept FaceBook page.

 

 

FLAGSTAFF, Ariz., June 21, 2021 — Due to fire danger, dry conditions, and persistent wildfire activity during a time when firefighting resources are sparse, the entirety of Coconino National Forest will close for public safety, beginning Wednesday (June 23) at 8 a.m.

 

A full forest closure means that the public is prohibited from entering any part of Coconino National Forest at any time. Only those with private inholdings will be allowed access to their property, as well as personnel providing utility support where necessary, and firefighters performing their duties.

 

Forest Service personnel will attempt to reach as many people as possible to begin vacating campsites and informing individuals who are camping in the forest currently. Campers and visitors to the national forest should vacate their campsites before the closure begins, and the public should cancel any plans for visiting the Coconino National Forest for the next several weeks.

 

Though parts of the national forest may receive rain from sporadic storms over the next couple of weeks, this closure will not be rescinded until sufficient precipitation is received to adequately reduce the risk of wildfire, and hot, dry weather conditions are no longer forecast to continue. In short, this closure will continue until conditions are such that the closure can be lifted.

 

Work on thinning and other forest and watershed restoration projects will cease. Partner agencies, organizations, concessionaires, outfitters, permit holders, and contractors, are all prohibited from entering the national forest.

 

Violating closures and fire restrictions is a violation that carries a mandatory appearance in federal court, punishable as a Class B misdemeanor with a fine of up to $5,000 for an individual or $10,000 for an organization, or up to six months in prison, or both.

Enjoy Summertime in West Sedona Arizona

Summer is a very special time of the year.  It gives us a chance to appreciate our climate in Northern Arizona. Temperatures that routinely hit the 90ºs with low humidity, especially in June.  May and June can be the driest months of the year. This means you can plan outdoor activities and not worry too much that they may be spoiled by inclement weather.  sedona summer

Our mornings are usually brisk, which allows for biking, hiking as well as other activities such as tennis and walking.  It is a fabulous time of year to take pleasure in your surroundings and be thankful for the beauty and serenity that surrounds you every day of the year.

There are miles upon miles of trails to explore throughout Sedona.  Many of these trails intersect each other and can provide lots of exercise for an experienced hiker.  Always take a lot of water with you.  A climate with low humidity can be deceivingly dangerous. You could be opening yourself up to heat exhaustion or stroke if you do not stay hydrated.

There are areas that provide challenges such as rock climbing for the purely adventurous and I might add, highly skilled rock climber.

MONSOON ! ~ What is it? ~ How Does It Affect Sedona and Arizona?

Posted by On

Monsoon!

An Arizona Summer Phenomenon

ActiveRain Real Estate Network

A similar article was featured on ActiveRain in 2019 The largest and most active professional social network in the real estate industry…

~ ~ ~

Information on Monsoon – Sedona, AZ – First of all, there is no need to add season at the end of Monsoon because Monsoon is a season. Monsoon affects the west and southwest states because the pattern of the weather changes as noted below.

How Long Is The Monsoon In Arizona?

Monsoon officially starts on June 15th and ends on September 30th. However, most of the rain comes from the middle of July through the middle of August.  This is one of the reasons that the Temps in Sedona are less harsh during July and August.  The average rainfall in the state of Arizona is around 12.5 inches.  The Sedona area gets more than the average rainfall. We have had as much as 26 inches (2016) and as low as 13.66 inches (2014). We had our lowest total ever of rain and snow in 2020.  Only a trace of snow and 8.15 inches of rain. We are in an exceptional drought currently. See the actual precipitation chart on Sedona-Weather.com.

What Creates Monsoon Conditions?

Weather enthusiasts and forecasters look to the dew point to tell if monsoon conditions exist. The dew point must be about 55º for thunderheads to start development. The dew point indicates how much moisture is in the air. At this point, the air cannot hold water in gas form and the gas will then turn to liquid form creating water droplets. The water droplets create fog or precipitation. Prior to officially declaring a calendar season for monsoon, the season would be declared when there were three days at a dew point of 55º.

2016 – Record Rain Totals

In 2016, the monsoon had 9.65 inches of rain recorded at our station. When you couple that with over 7 inches of rain and 7.5 inches of snow, we had a year-end total of 25.92 inches of precipitation.

So Far in 2021…

The first 5 months in 2021 had 5.21 inches of rainfall AND 8.25 inches of snow. Most of that snow came in March along with 1.98 inches of rain!

Since 2010, our backyard weather station has recorded an average of 5.8 inches of rain in July and August combined, so every year we look forward to the monsoon. In 2019, we had El Nińo conditions.  This caused our summer climate conditions to change. There was less cloud cover and less rain which caused warmer temperatures throughout the summer months. This is an a-typical season. As noted below, the normal Monsoon pattern brings moist air in from the south.

Preparation For Monsoon

One quick note – Because it is our rainy season and the chance of lightning during a thunderstorm could knock out power, take some time to have things ready to go:

  • Know where the flashlights and candles are for easy access.
  • Keep your cell phone charged
  • Clean out gutters – drains – culverts – rain ditches and any other natural path water may take during a sudden downpour.
  • You should have sandbags prepared to divert rain that may cause flash floods.
  • Thin trees close to your home. Many trees fall during high wind conditions.

What Is Monsoon?

It seems that Southern Arizona, the White Mountains, and the Phoenix metropolitan area known as “The Valley” get the brunt of the monsoon effects. It is amazing to see the haboob (desert wind storms)monsoon - Sedona real estate kick up and tower thousands of feet in the air moving through the valley. Those storms are the pre-cursor to the rain and massive storm cells that develop from the moisture in the warm air coming off the Gulf of Mexico. Generally, massive amounts of rain falling create downdrafts that push the air out from the center of the storm which produces a dry wind that kicks up the dust and dirt.

Seasonal Weather Patterns monsoon Arizona Sedona real estate

During summer, weather patterns change.  Storms that travel from the arctic  (Alaska) down through Canada and the lower 48, create our winter storm pattern.

In the summer, the pattern shifts to the south. Hurricanes, storms, and moisture travel northwest from the Gulf of Mexico through Mexico, Texas, New Mexico, and Arizona moving all the way to California. We also get moisture coming from the Gulf of California traveling directly north. Lots of moisture and an occasional hurricane come up from the coast of Baja California and push northeast into Arizona.

Northern Arizona

Up in Northern Arizona, we get a lot of cloud cover and the storms move through but usually don’t drop a lot of rain here in Sedona. Though in Flagstaff it is quite a different story! The area of Sedona seems to be protected. By that, I mean that most of the rain falls elsewhere before it gets to our little city. But when we do get rain and storm cells, it is a big deal around here.

In 2014, Sedona got 7.73 inches of rain from July through September. In 2013, there were 8.18 inches of rain in the same time frame. Flash flooding can happen because many of the streets are sloped leading up to the red rocks. There has been much improvement made in our drainage system to be able to handle the additional water flow but during an intense storm there is no place for the water to go and mud and rocks can travel across roads to find the path of least resistance. Do not travel through a road where water is more than 4 inches deep.  A car can be swept away easily.

Southern & Central Arizona

In Southern and Central Arizona – 2014 will be remembered as the “Monsoon of the Century”. All future monsoon activity will be measured in terms of 2014. There were 3 major hurricanes that affected the weather in the southern half of the state. This caused a deluge and many towns and neighborhoods suffered tremendous flooding damage due to flash floods, hurricane wind, broken canals, and water that had nowhere to go. Many long-time residents had never seen a deluge like we had that year. Sky Harbor Airport had a record rainfall of 1.59 inches and has exceeded the all-time record set back in 1903.

Sedona Weather Categories by Month

For all stats and a look at weather in previous months and years, go to

Sedona-Weather.com

Sedona Comfort Index = 8 out of 10

In April 2021, the Sedona weather was nothing like March. One thing about Sedona, our weather is not hum-drum. We had a little of everything in March including 7.5 inches of snow. So April felt a lot warmer. We started April with 11 out of the first 12 days in the 80ºs. Almost the entire month was above 72º. There was only a couple of days we turned on the AC for a short time.

May 2021 has been a little cooler compared to May 2020. The average temperature was almost 3º cooler.  No days reached beyond 93.6.

Is Sedona’s Climate Considered Arid or Humid?

Here is the difference that most people do not realize is our climate is arid but in a transitional zone between the Sonora Desert and Colorado Plateau.  Sedona does not experience much humidity even during our monsoon. This makes higher temperatures more bearable. People that are not used to an arid climate need to make sure they stay hydrated all day.  This translates into one cup every 15 to 20 minutes while working outside or at least 1 quart an hour to stay hydrated.

How Many Days of Sunshine Does Sedona Get?

Currently, we are on track to hit around 300 days of **sunshine. We are at 121 days and last year we were at 118 days of sunshine. We ended last year at 301 days.

FAQ – Does Sedona AZ Allow Fireworks?

FIREWORKS! Many locals and visitors alike want to know what is going on in our great city Sedona on the 4th of July.  The most often asked question (FAQ) is: “Can you buy and shoot off fireworks?” Is there a fireworks celebration? (YES!… See Below) Unfortunately, no fireworks are allowed in the city limits. Without getting too far into the weeds on this, the AZ Legislature passed a bill to allow ground consumer fireworks. It took effect on December 1, 2017. Each city will still be able to ban fireworks. Please remember that Federal and Tribal lands have their own restrictions. Call your local government or Fire District to determine if your area allows fireworks and remember, Arizona is a tinderbox for wildfires.  We all need to act responsibly when it comes to fires or firework celebrations.

Sheri Sperry Realtor Coldwell BankerABOUT ME: “Many buyers and sellers are skeptical about salespeople. So am I! But, I am not a typical salesperson. I put myself in your shoes and help you make decisions based on how I would want to proceed if I were you. In other words, what steps would I take and what is right for you? How will this transaction be beneficial for you? How will it help you move forward with your goals? How can I make it as smooth and pleasant as possible? What is in your best interests as we move forward?

Let’s face it, you won’t really know that I am not a typical salesperson until you get to know me. I am confident you will feel at ease and comfortable knowing I can find solutions for you. If you don’t feel that way, please let me know. I want to be the best I can for you.”

A Sedona Photographer’s Secrets Revealed

Posted by On

Utilizing Mother Nature’s Gifts To Provide Dramatic Effect

West Sedona - Soldiers Pass - homes for sale

 

Some photographers take pictures and there are some who paint images through the lens of a camera. Over the years, I have had the opportunity to watch my husband (Rick) master his photographic skills. As an amateur photographer, he enjoyed taking landscape photography. Every trip we took was another journey in learning his craft. It is a passion of his to capture and freeze a moment in time. He relishes sharing it with others. The highest compliment one can give him is “WOW”! BTW – Rick is self-taught!

My tours have garnered almost 237,000 views. There are 6 separate homes displayed below and those homes alone have over 98,500 views. All are no longer active (sold) but they continue to get a lot of views! The top 5 tours have garnered over 108,000 plus views.

As Rick has transitioned into a Professional Real Estate Photographer, who has an exclusive contract with me (Ha! Ha!), I can see how much he has grown. With every listing we secure, we work as a team to give it life. Together, we discuss what we need to emphasize, highlight and promote. To us, “Dramatic Effect” is our friend.

– What are the best angles to capture the essence of the home?

– What is the best time of day to seize the proper lighting and bring out the very best in every picture. If I may be so bold, lighting is the makeup of the “model”. Proper “makeup” brings out the very best features of the subject in the artistic imagery. Rick has found that the more natural the lighting and sometimes a little fill light brings out the best in a home.

– When possible, we come back several times to get the very best Mother Nature has to offer for lighting and weather. Clouds are also our friend. However….

– Shadows are the enemy – Whenever possible, stay away from shooting a picture with harsh shadows. There are special filters that can help to minimize the effects of harsh shadows. This is another reason we come back at different times of the day.

– Staging is a must. Sometimes we don’t have complete control over staging a home. Simple staging to highlight an area may be as simple as flowers strategically placed or place settings at a table. More complex staging may involve rearranging furniture. Ever watch a movie or TV Show, no one has their back to the camera. To get the right angle a piece of furniture may have to be taken out of the picture. A diligent artist will make it happen.

– Don’t sacrifice the beauty and charm to sell a view. Make sure you have an image to complement the entire room beside any view that may be a feature you are trying to promote.

Key Point…

– I get my sellers’ buy-in by educating them on what we are trying to accomplish.

Screen-Shot-2016-05-03-at-12.03.39-PM-1024x678

This picture was a picture that we rejected. It was taken near sunset and did not take advantage of the magic a morning sunrise would hold. Also, the clear sky does not add a dramatic effect to the shot.  We were fortunate to have clouds roll in the next morning to provide that dramatic effect.  Notice

1-Main-25-Buckskin-SellSedona.com_-1024x683

Another secret revealed…With a home that faces east, use the rising sun as natural lighting that will enhance the image. Get there before sunrise and snap away. Use different angles. This pic was taken 2 feet off the ground to use the rocks as a frame and give the picture some depth of field. Notice the clouds in the reflective glass of the owner’s suite on the right side.

11-North-Private-Patio-copy

In this image, we are highlighting the pottery that is part of a pillar that would not be in any other shot. The pottery and the pine tree frame the image and draw your attention to the signature water feature.

8-Mstr-BD-Sitting-Area-1024x680

Two more secrets revealed – #1 – Natural lighting…there is no substitute! #2 – You are trying to sell your customer a lifestyle. Take advantage of the perfect setting. Can you picture yourself sitting in one of these chairs reading a good book with the fire feature dancing in the background? I can!  BTW… If you have been to my SellSedona.com website, this is the first image you will see.

Here is the triple treat – Showcasing 1) Views – 2) The Home – 3) The Garden and the park bench. This area is a very special garden area that offers privacy and it was showcased from 4 different angles highlighting other features of the property. See one more example below.

Sometimes a feature is the whole room. Our client who built this home loves skiing in Colorado. This influenced his design of the fireplace. Notice the subtle framing of the natural beam pillars.

Here is the other side of the fire feature. It is the first thing you see as you enter the foyer.

In the picture below, you have seen the fire feature and are now entering the Great Room with 20 ft ceilings and a magnificent view of Castle Rock in the Village of Oak Creek.

4-Great-Room-View-1024x683

Rick will not compromise the listing with shabby pictures.  He understands that there are many homes that a potential buyer may want to view and there is only so much time available. We owe it to our sellers to give them the very best solutions to fulfill their desired goals.

Some of these pictures are from current listings and others are from listings that were sold in previous years.

Which Sedona Arizona Restaurant Has The Best Views?

Posted by On

Which Sedona Restaurant Has The Best Red Rock Vistas?

Soldiers Pass View from Mariposa Restaurant Sheri Sperry Coldwell Banker Realty Sellsedona.com

There are two restaurants that offer fine dining and breathtaking views. One of those restaurants has only been open to resort guests during the pandemic. 

Sedona Lifestyle - Mariposa Latin Inspired Grill Sheri Sperry REALTOR 928.274.7355

The other restaurant with unparalleled and breathtaking views is Mariposa – Latin Inspired Grill.  Mariposa is currently open for dinner reservations every day except Tuesday. The hours of operation are on the website along with Guidelines and Dress Code… Yes! …You will find an actual dress code!  More on that below.   

 

Prior to last week, it had been well over a year since we had a meal at Mariposa, partially because of the pandemic and also because it was one of the last restaurants to open during the pandemic. The opening date was June 25th, 2020. That being said, it is an extraordinary dining experience. I like to take special clients and also out-of-town guests here… Why? Just look at the views!  There are other restaurants with views but only Enchantment Resort and Mariposa have outrageous red rock views pictured in these images.

The Sphinx, Mittens, Ship Rock, Coffeepot Rock , Soldiers Pass,

A Re-crafted Dining Experience! 

Butterfly 1000 lb. door on MariposaAre you required to wear masks for inside dining?

In Sedona as in all of Arizona – mask guidance has been left to the business owners to decide.  Currently, Mariposa has instituted a “Mask-To-Table” policy.  You can find specific instructions on the website

Other changes that I noticed included 3 different areas to check-in.  There is a reservation valet at the entrance to the parking lot.  Without a reservation, there is no dining. The next check-in is at the edge of the courtyard, where you could have your temperature taken. This valet is in communication with the front desk and will let you know when your table is ready.  After you walk through the 1000 lb. artistic door, you arrive at the front reception area where you will be escorted to your table. Can you see the butterfly image?

The “Hours of Operation” and reservations are located here.  I must warn you that reservations might be 3 weeks or beyond during busy periods. So plan ahead! Other words to the wise, parties are limited to 6 guests. Another touch that the Dahl restaurants have is a shuttle service, but it must be reserved in advance also.  

Red Rock View from inside Mariposa Grill -SellSedona - Sheri Sperry Realtor

Dining Guidelines and Dress Code

The Dahl Restaurant Group takes every precaution to make sure your dining experience is COVID-free.  I really enjoyed the tables spaced a little further away.  It helps make your dining more private. The dress code is “Resort Casual”. Jackets and ties are not required but the restaurant asks you not to wear, tank tops, cut-offs, short shorts, flip-flops, or sports branded sportswear.

All of these guidelines help to ensure a memorable dining experience. 

The wait staff is a unit of three servers.  These servers stay together and serve the same tables. They stick together as a unit and do not mingle with other work units. Our head waiter also let us know more about the “re-crafted dining experience“.  Of course, the restaurant is not currently serving lunch and the menu has been streamlined so that work stations can be staffed by individuals or teams. These teams stay in that work area.

“Enjoy The Flavors of Life”

delightful cuisine with latin flair SellSedona.com Mariposa

Clockwise starting at top left: First of all, there is an award-winning wine cellar. However, we chose a “Mariposa Whiskey Sour” and “Housemade White Sangria”. For starters, we enjoyed “Cesare de la Casa” with a side of anchovies for Rick. For our main meal, we both chose the Filet Mignon Center Cut. The sides were family-style. We enjoyed the Lemon Mashed Potatoes with Luscious Lobster Scampi.  This was featured on Travel Channel’s Food Paradise.  Simply….”Luscious”!  Any time we get a chance to have “Elote” we will order it.  Of course, we couldn’t pass up their wonderful desert cappuccino and birthday Lemon Chiffon Cookie and Gelato, as well as a Flourless Chocolate Mousse with a side of Salted Caramel Gelato! YUM!

I can say that the dining experience I recently had was one of the best.  It tops even the past performance of this restaurant.  Lisa Dahl can be very proud of her staff in all phases of the restaurant operation. 

That Unmistakable Midas Touch 

As you scroll down the contact page on Mariposa’s website, there is a section “Meet the Chef”.  Chef Lisa Dahl has been a culinary trailblazer in Sedona for more than 25 years. I have been to every one of Lisa’s five restaurants and have enjoyed memorable meals that I will never forget.  Lisa has her imprint on every aspect of the business from designing the meals to the interior and exterior touches.  Lisa Dahl has that unmistakable “Midas Touch”.  

You can find the menus for Mariposa here.

One More Thing…

Are any Sedona restaurants ranked in the Top 10 most romantic restaurants of Arizona?

Ranking Arizona: Top 10 Romantic Restaurants for 2021

Three of Sedona’s restaurants are in that Top 10 ranking for all of Arizona. There is no surprise that two are Lisa Dahl restaurants. 

4. Mariposa Latin Inspired Grill

6. L’Auberge Restaurant on Oak Creek

8. Dahl & DiLuca Restorante Italiano

When all is said and done,  I can depend on a wonderful experience at any of Lisa Dahl’s five restaurants. I won’t hesitate to take a client or good friend there.  This is the restaurant you want to take people who have not experienced Sedona.  The views are “Eye Candy” for red rock and nature enthusiasts. 

Mariposa is located near the “Y” which is now the Figure-eight Round-about.  As you head west from the “Y” on SR 89-A, you will see it on the right halfway up the hill.

A Mild Climate with Stunning Red Rock Views

Sedona is a town that is in the transitional climate zone. It is about a 1:25 hours north of the Sonoran Desert and about 25 minutes from the southern border of the Colorado Plateau.  There is a mix of desert flora as well as pine, juniper trees, and forest. Sedona is surrounded by iconic red rocks and buttes. Some areas will have steep canyon walls and there are miles and miles of trails that criss-cross the area. Oak Creek has many picnic areas as well as swimming holes. Slide Rock is a popular summer destination.

As for the chart below; humidity is not a factor in personal comfort. Warmer and colder weather is less noticeable because of the lack of humidity. Another reason why staying hydrated is so important. Basically, an individual can tolerate much warmer and colder temperatures because humidity does not play a part. You can get detailed statistics at Sedona-Weather.com. All Stats are tracked and there is detailed info since 2010.

Sedona –  A Vibrant Art and Hiking Community

Though Sedona has a little more than 10,000 residents, the visitor population can swell to 30,000 or more. It boasts a vibrant art community and Uptown is tightly packed with shops featuring Native American and New Age wares, along with galleries, restaurants, hotels, and spas.

In fact, its hardly a surprise that the winding road through Oak Creek Canyon is not only Arizona’s first officially designated scenic highway, but it is also the first leg of a day trip to one of the world’s great wonders, nearby Grand Canyon.
