Several years ago, after a ride with the Sun City bike club, I asked the following question of the 30+ people on the ride:  "If you woke up on the 1st day of every month and found $10,000 on your nightstand, where would you choose to live?"  As people started giving me answers, I said, "Wait until next week's ride, think about it and then give me your answers."  

The next week the answer was over 70% in favor of staying exactly where they were -- one wanted a horse ranch in Montana, another wanted to live on a south sea island, but the great majority were happy where they were.  That kind of contentment is difficult to find in life.

I also enjoy living and working in Sun City and making new friends.  When you see my advertisements in the paper or magazines you will notice an offer for residents in Sun City to change the batteries in your smoke alarms, heater thermostats, sprinkler systems, to change the 40" fluorescent lights, floods and porch lights. This has been a great way to meet new friends and introduce them to my real estate business. 

I also collect moving boxes from people moving into the area and distribute them later to those moving out.  I know that sometimes the ladies would like help moving into their new home, hanging pictures and small fix-up jobs around the house that they don't feel comfortable doing.  I am there to offer help and welcome you to the neighborhood.

I have a group of professional tradesmen -- carpenters, carpet cleaners, handymen, gardeners, window washers, etc. that I can recommend to my clients.  Most of these tradesmen are from Sun City or live in the immediate area.

Another good way to meet new friends and help others is to become a member of our charitable foundation called Seniors Helping Seniors. 

The Sacramento, Placer and El Dorado counties offer many choices for Seniors to enjoy.  The Recreation, Entertainment,  Wine Country, and Sacramento and Placer County Senior Activities along with Medical Care and senior developments by Del Webb - Sun City Roseville and Sun City Lincoln Hills, Pulte's Springfield, US Homes and others will delight and surprise you.
