We continue to see changes in the Flagstaff market as Buyers and Sellers react to conditions outside of their control. Many believe mortgage rates are still too high for their taste. This has an impact on sellers who are reluctant to put their home on the market due to costs of a replacement home. It can be challenging for sellers with low mortgage rates to decide if they should sell their current home and purchase another at a higher mortgage rate. There are many other reasons why sellers have concerns about selling their home in today’s market. We at Best Flagstaff homes are here to help. Give us a call today and let us discuss the best strategy for your needs.


We think it’s fun to learn about each other with fun “About Us” questions so we wanted to continue to share them with you. This time around…..


If you could be any animal what would you be & why?

Marian Armstrong

Dolphin all the way. They are generally happy, helpful creatures with no real predators & humans don’t turn you into sushi. Also the sick aerials!

Kelly Kasprzyk

There are a few of my clients’ dogs that I would like to come back as, they have the best life!!! They get to travel with them and get all the love and snuggles 🙂

Keith Cohen

A cockatiel – I had them as pets growing up and they’re the most loving, smart creatures. Plus they can fly and have really cool hair (feathers)!

Linda Kiehne

After this winter!? I’d be a lizard and just lay in the sun all day.

Jessica Garard

The female killer whale, Orca, is the head of her clan and sons stay by their mom’s sides longer than most species.

Tad Moore

A cat. They literally just lay around and knock stuff off of tables. It’s my dream.

Eric Davis

Peregrine Falcon – Because I feel the need for speed. And that eyesight would be pretty amazing.

Patrick Sork

I’d want to be a wolf. They’re fierce creatures with a strong pack culture. I wouldn’t be here today without my friends and family.

Sara Holloway

Monkey! They are so playful, funny, super smart and mischievous.

Arin Wheeler

Hmmm, I’ll go with Gorilla since Sara took monkey. Gorillas are strong but gentle creatures. They like to eat, play and cozy up in family groups out in nature. I feel like those are my life goals now.
