I love anything with a story behind it. I really enjoy any sort of cultural event and great conversation. In Phoenix, we have tried to provide the perfect sanctuary to get away and yet still see everything the city has to offer for events, shopping, dining, and natural beauty. North Scottsdale near Kierland is absolutely the perfect location to be. In Cambridge/Boston we are working with a 124-year-old Victorian. It's beautiful with a lot of New England charm. Many homes of the type in the area are gut remodeled and turned into condos or modern style living spaces. We are working hard to maintain its hand-built Victorian charm while greening its infrastructure where possible and protecting it for future generations. It's literally an antique we feel more like stewards than owners of. We are now sharing these homes with others and using any money we earn to further the renovation projects. We hope to meet people that will continue with us on this journey and get to enjoy things each time they come back as we further improve the spaces for all to enjoy.
