Monday Morning Coffee with Alejandro Gutierrez

Sedona AZ (November 20, 2017)Join real estate insider Alejandro Gutierrez, Russ Lyon Sotheby’s International Realty, as he shares his Monday Morning Coffee with you from Sedona, Arizona:


Economic predictions are that the outlook for U.S. economic growth remains at 2% to 2.5%, slightly faster than average in this long running expansion. Short-term, however, hurricane disruptions are likely to obscure some stronger trends.

The possibility of corporate and individual tax cuts has improved the prospects for growth in 2018 and beyond, aided by still low interest rates.

We expect more optimistic consumers to continue spending, and the pickup in global growth is also positive for the U.S.

As mentioned in this column more than once, high consumer confidence is always good for the housing market!

Perfect happiness is a beautiful sunset, the giggle of a grandchild, the first snowfall. It’s the little things that make happy moments, not the grand events. Joy comes in sips, not gulps. ~ Sharon Draper

Happy Thanksgiving 2017 from all of us at the Sedona Eye.

Our family will be home for Thanksgiving this year – a departure from normal since we’ve spent more than 25 Thanksgivings on Hilton Head Island in South Carolina. We’ll miss our island time, but being together is what’s important.

I’ve always wanted my children to be thankful, and now that the grandbabies have joined us, it’s even more important to keep that focus.

Like many families, one of our family traditions has been to go around the table at the end of the meal and share what we’re thankful for that year.

It’s always a precious time. We’ve had great excitement when our sons proposed to their sweethearts and tears as we thanked God for answered prayers for the gift of a new grandbaby or for renewed health after scary hospital stays.

We’ve had sweet moments of just thanking God for who He is and for His faithfulness and love. And there have been times we’ve laughed until we’ve wiped tears from our cheeks.

Like the Thanksgiving Day a few years ago when our little granddaughter, Ava, was about 21-months-old. All of the adults had already shared about God’s blessings to them when I said to Ava, “Baby, do you have anything you’re thankful for today?”

She was so little that we didn’t really expect her to say anything, but she nodded her head vigorously, her little pigtails bouncing.

Poco Diablo McGuire says thank ya to all his Four Paws Up Pals out there and reminds ya “Don’t fergit a treat or two for the ones who love ya’ll unconditionally! And forgive ’em if they sin on Thanksgiving Day!”

She softly said, “I’m thankful for Mommy and Daddy…” it was so precious and so unexpected that we all got tears in our eyes. And then she continued, “…and catsup…and coffee, too.”

Oh, my! From the mouths of babes.

Sweet friends, sometimes we become so focused on the big events of our lives that we forget about the little moments that really aren’t so little when you stop to think about them.

Times of making memories, sitting around the table with those we love, laughing and sharing about our blessings. Moments of listening to stories of times past from older family members, and watching little ones playing on the floor.

So this year in the midst of Thanksgiving Day with all its busyness and mayhem, take a few minutes to look at each person and think about what they mean to you. Focus on those ordinary moments together that we should never take for granted.

And don’t forget to snap some photos. Not just posed photos, but pictures of you in the kitchen with your grandmother while you mash the potatoes together, of your dad slicing the turkey, or your husband playing with the children.

These are the moments you’ll want to revisit someday.

God has been so good to us. How could we help but give thanks to Him for all His blessings. And for catsup and coffee, too! ~ Michelle Cox

Happy Thanksgiving from Sedona, Arizona and the SedonaEye.com family!

It has been a pleasure sharing Monday Morning Coffee with you. Selling a home is always difficult because it’s like leaving a part of you behind and buyers don’t always appreciate aspects of it in the same way you do. Buying the right home is also difficult because if the Realtor did not really understand your needs, or was in a hurry for his commission, you may end up in the wrong house.

So, if you are looking for a Realtor that can empathize with you and help you navigate through the entire process, without rushing you to decisions, then you should consider calling Alejandro Gutierrez at 928-821-8552. He has lived in Sedona since 2007 buying, remodeling, and selling many properties as well as representing many clients under the prestigious Russ Lyon Sotheby’s International Realty brokerage, 20 Roadrunner Drive, Sedona, Arizona 86336.

  1. Climate change & effect of disappearing red rocks? says:

    Researchers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, for instance, compiled the pledges made by governments as part of the UN’s “Paris” agreement plan, then compared the result with their own preexisting projections.

    MIT found that even assuming the warmist theory was correct, the Paris scheme would reduce temperature by some 0.2°C by the end of the century — a number too small to even properly measure at the global level.

    When they used UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) projections from 2000, the researchers found no improvement, period.

    (To this I say…You can’t argue with math. And why should the US be expected to pay trillions to the UN to find this out in 2020? Thank you MIT. I’ll send a check to you instead. The rest of you people ought to donate too. You wanted to send it to the UN bureaucrats, spend it on our kids.)
