This is my story!
Nancy retired from Real Estate on April 1st, 2015 after nearly 20 years!
We have shared fifty three years together this January 2015. We successfully operated our own plumbing business in California for fifteen years called Gerber and Sons. Before that, I was a partner in a plumbing contracting business while Nancy spent eight years in customer service with Sears. We have three grown children, five granddaughters aged 11 years, 12 years, 15 years, 30 and 31 years old. Two great granddaughters and one great grandson.
Over 22 years ago we bought a "vacation home" in Prescott with the idea of retiring here sometime in the future. However, it was only a short time before the charm and beauty that makes Prescott one of America’s best places to live captured our hearts and imagination.
It wasn't until later that I discovered a family tie to "Preskitt". While doing a family research project, I found out that my Grandmother was born in Prescott, and was living here with my Great Grandparents in the late 1800's early 1900's. No wonder I felt right at home the first trip to "Preskitt"!
Since making Prescott home, we started out by taking an active role in the community, starting with the Chamber of Commerce. I served on the Board of Directors, was a member of the operations committee, the chairman of the Courthouse Lighting Committee, co-chair with Nancy for Territorial Days.
We are past members of the Prescott Chamber of Commerce Ambassadors. Both of us had served as officers for the club. The Ambassadors are the official greeting arm for the Prescott Chamber of Commerce.
Nancy has also co-chaired a committee and was a member of the now defunct Face to Face Committee that travels into the valley and speaks at various service clubs to attract visitors to Prescott. She was also one of the "cast members" of the "In Your Face Follies", a skit that is performed throughout the area as a function of the chamber. Trust me; it's a good thing that one is in the past!
For two years, I was invited by The Yavapai Cemetery Association to act as Master of Ceremonies for the Memorial Day Services.
Before joining Red Arrow Real Estate in April, 2001, we were consistent Top Producers at Realty 2000, GMAC Real Estate®, winners of the Medallion Club Award© for 1997, 1998, 1999, 2000, 2001 members of the prestigious Better Homes and Gardens© Summit Club or 1997, 1998, 1999, 2000 2001 and belonged to The Better Homes and Gardens©, GMAC Real Estate Multi-Million Dollar Club and Medallion Club.

And here's the best part! We have rediscovered the magic of their motorcycle days after a long 11 year absence. Our riding began back in 1962 and today, we travel all over Arizona on our Harley Davidson Ultra Glide.

"Preskitt" sells itself; I take care of the rest!
