Here's a couple of Arizona real estate blogs you may not be aware of….
Shailesh Ghimire is the Arizona Mortgage Guru. Shailesh and his wife Aimee are lenders in Mesa, Arizona — and they are darn good ones. They are in fact, the lenders we've teamed up with to bring you the woefully underutilized "Ask The Lenders" feature on our main site, mentioned here, and linked to in our sidebar (note to self, move that directly to the blog, throw up an image, do something to see if it we can more people to take advantage of the Ghimire's knowledge and willingness to help).
Shailesh has been blogging for quite some time, but in January of this year, the blogging bug bit hard, and since then he's been a very prolific blogger. Shailesh blogs about local, national and even worldwide mortgage/financial news, throws in some humor, and even gives us insight that he lies awake at night thinking about blogging (welcome to blog geekdom!). He also recently began contributing to the excellent Blog Arizona. (note to Shailesh – send us a guest post and we'll put it up here!) He's got great insight to the mortgage world. Highly recommended!
Kelley Koehler down south a bit in Tucson has just this month fired up The Housechick Blog. She's running WordPress on a very slick theme (try dragging the sidebar modules!). Looks like she's already working on getting lender contributors herself, and there is some great local content to be had. (Local to Tucson also sometimes works for local to Phoenix — as in her blog on swap coolers.) She doesn't know this, but I first came across Kelley over a year ago when I thought I had a referral for a Tucson agent. Her real estate website was easy to find, and very well done — as you'd expect from someone with a Systems Engineering degree with a specialty in software systems. Granted it's from U of A, but we'll try not to hold that against her. If Kelley keeps it up, she'll soon have a strong presence in the Arizona real estate blogiverse.
Check these two out, add them to your feed reader and enjoy!
