Rocky Point News June 2019 - Happy Father's Day! 💙


 
Happy Father's Day!
 
“My father didn’t tell me how to live. He lived and let me watch him do it.” –Clarence Budington Kelland .
 
Happy Father’s Day!
 
Wishing all the father’s out there a fun filled day from start to finish! Being a father is a special opportunity to make a difference in someone’s life. It’s the gift that keeps on giving. From the moment your child enters the world, your words and actions make an imprint on their lives. How are you going to celebrate this Father’s Day? What’s the difference you’ll make? 
 
Grant and Judy
 
P.S. Happy Father’s Day to my incredible husband who is a father beyond compare. You make the difference in their lives through all that you do and all that you are .

A. Father's Day.
 
The nation’s first Father’s Day was celebrated on June 19, 1910, in the state of Washington. However, it was not until 1972–58 years after President Woodrow Wilson made Mother’s Day official–that the day honoring fathers became a nationwide holiday in the United States. Father’s Day 2019 occurs on Sunday, June 16.

Chuck & Jenna
 
Chuck:
For the last 10 years, my wife and I pursued numerous real estate ventures that included ownership/sales of rental and flip properties. Again, in that venture, customer service allowed us to be successful in those ventures.  
Like many of you, my wife and I fell in love with Rocky Point. After a few real estate ventures in this market, we decided to combine our two favorite past times of being in Rocky Point and real estate and relocated here permanent! We have joined Remax Legacy with the MacKenzies, who we feel embody the same values of hard work and a fierce commitment to integrity and customer service.  
We are pursuing our dreams to create memories here in Rocky Point, not only for our selves but my three adult children. We hope that our experience here will help you find your dream here as well, whether it is a place to get away or a permanent residence!
 
Jenna:
I'm following another long-time passion of mine ... real estate! My husband and I have spent our spare time over the past ten years pursuing real estate investments. We've been landlords and home 'flippers', both in Mexico and in the U.S.  But we haven't done this just because it's a sound way to make money, but because we love seeing the potential that lies in every single property. Every home out there can be meaningful and perfect for someone.
I am SO looking forward to my new career with the MacKenzie ReMax team. I know that I will be able to help both my clients and my homes find their perfect match! I have found my own perfect home at the Marina Pinacate condos in Rocky Point. I walk 40 feet in one direction and I have restaurants and shopping. If I go 40 feet in the other direction, I'm on the beach! Grateful to be living the good life in Rocky Point!
 
C. Market Analysis May & 2019 Year to Date

D. Flag Day
 
What Is Flag Day?
 
Celebrate Flag Day with fun and surprising facts about the American flag and how to display it.

When the American Revolution broke out in 1775, the colonists weren’t fighting united under a single flag. Instead, most regiments participating in the war for independence against the British fought under their own flags. In June of 1775, the Second Continental Congress met in Philadelphia to create the Continental Army—a unified colonial fighting force—with the hopes of a more organized battle against its colonial oppressors. This led to the creation of what was, essentially, the first “American” flag, the Continental Colors

I. 8 Simple Ways to Improve Your Life
in 8 Days (and Make You Much Happier) 
 
Happy and successful people live by a different set of rules. If the idea of improving your own life or work strikes you in a good way, a personal metamorphosis may be required.  
While searching for the latest happiness tips and ideas to practice in my daily work routine, and investigating what happy and successful people do to stay that way, I noticed how intentional they are about choosing the right mindset to become happier.
While a surplus of books has been written on the topic of happiness, here's a simple working template that anyone can put into action, starting today.

A. Earth Day. Protect Our Species.
Nature’s gifts to our planet are the millions of species that we know and love, and many more that remain to be discovered. Unfortunately, human beings have irrevocably upset the balance of nature and, as a result, the world is facing the greatest rate of extinction since we lost the dinosaurs more than 60 million years ago. But unlike the fate of the dinosaurs, the rapid extinction of species in our world today is the result of human activity.
The unprecedented global destruction and rapid reduction of plant and wildlife populations are directly linked to causes driven by human activity: climate change, deforestation, habitat loss, trafficking and poaching, unsustainable agriculture, pollution and pesticides to name a few. The impacts are far reaching.
If we do not act now, extinction may be humanity’s most enduring legacy.

D. Holy Week and Easter in Mexico.
 
Semana Santa (Holy Week in English) is the week leading up to Easter. This is a very important religious holiday in Mexico. Religious celebrations are at the forefront, but, since Mexican schools have two weeks vacation period at this time (the week of Semana Santa, and the following week, which is referred to as Semana de Pascua, which means "Easter Week"), it's also a time when Mexican families head to the beaches and tourist attractions.
 
Religious Celebrations
The religious observances of Semana Santa do not take a back seat to beach fun, however. Processions and passion plays take place all through the country, though different areas celebrate in different ways and certain communities have more effusive celebrations.
Jesus' final days are evoked in the rituals that take place during the week.
  • Palm Sunday - Domingo de Ramos
  • Maundy Thursday - Jueves Santo
  • Good Friday - Viernes Santo
  • Holy Saturday - Sabado de Gloria
  • Easter Sunday - Domingo de Pascua

G. 7 Healthy Lifestyle Habits That Can Add More Than a Decade To Your Life
 
  1. Stand More. Sitting for too long will negatively impact the quality of your life and work. When you sit for long stretches, good cholesterol drops, and your body becomes inflamed, which increases the risk of heart attack. Moving your muscles helps your body digest the fats and sugars better.
  2. Sleep is not a Luxury. A consistent seven to nine-hour sleep is one of the most important and effective things you can do for your brain and body.
  3. Move for at least 30 minutes a day. Always keep moving. Your mind, body, and waistline will thank you. It’s one of the most important decisions you can ever take for your health.
  4. Upgrade your water intake. After 6–8 hours of good sleep, your body becomes dehydrated, so I drink at least a glass of water every morning before breakfast. After rehydration, your body will function and metabolize at its greatest efficiency. The activated system can then process the nutrition you eat better and distribute the energy you need for your day’s work.
  5. Open your windows. Getting enough fresh air where you live may be as simple as opening a window.
  6. Make nuts your go-to snack. Nuts are high in heart-healthy omega-3s, which also have been shown to help shrink your waistline.
  7. Remove clutter from your life. Clutter is anything you don’t like, don’t use, or don’t need.

J. Client Review - Our Clients Say It Best!
 
Grant,
 
Thank you so much for the guidance and perseverance you gave Kathy and me during the long process of selling my casa in Playa Encanto! You have become a personal friend to my family. Your experience and knowledge of selling homes in Rocky Point was a big help to us as we live in Northern California, 900 miles away from our favorite beach.
 
Please get in touch with us when you are in the Bay Area!
 
Best Regards,

Keeth and Kathy Lichtenberger

A. Mexico's Christmas Traditions.
 
In Mexico, Christmas is celebrated from December 12th to January 6th.
 
From December 16th to Christmas Eve, children often perform the 'Posada' processions or Posadas. Posada is Spanish for Inn or Lodging. There are nine Posadas. These celebrate the part of the Christmas story where Joseph and Mary looked for somewhere to stay. For the Posadas, the outside of houses are decorated with evergreens, moss and paper lanterns. 
 
Christmas Trees  are becoming more popular in Mexico, but the main/most important decoration is still the nacimiento.
Poinsettia flowers  are known as 'nochebuena' (Christmas Eve) flowers in Mexico.
In some states in Mexico children expect Santa Claus to come on December 24th. In the south of Mexico children expect presents on January 6th at  Epiphany , which is known as "el Dia de los Reyes".

TRIP OF A LIFETIME
 
Where to start? Africa! We went on an amazing safari in Tanzania, Africa. It was created by Pique Travel Design: www.piquetrave.com and Kris Noteworthy was our Travel Design Specialist. Kris was 100% right on with planning our adventure.
We started in Arusha-Kilimanjaro; staying at the Arusha Coffee Lodge in a very private cottage with all the amenities you could ask including a claw foot bath tub and a 5 star restaurant. Waking up in Africa on my birthday was a dream come true! We went on our first safari drive through Tanagerie Reserve to our next location; the Treetops Lodge. Yes, our accommodation was in a tree with a trap door, total privacy, secluded deck, elephants blocking our trail, Sawhili dancers and a tree full of bats; off the charts incredible. On our drive we saw giraffes, zebras, wildebeests, gazelles, and hyenas. Our next safari drive was to The Manor an English style property with lush grounds, an inviting suite with yet another claw foot bath tub and exceptional service. Joshua our waiter was professional, friendly and taught us Sawhili. 
         On our way to the Ngorongoro Crater we had an elephant come out of the bush staring into our jeep window… about 5 feet away and it was open! If you’d like to know more send me an e-mail and I’ll send more photos and or call and I’ll tell you more. It was a dream come true; a trip of a life time. Highlights seeing a lion kill, viewing a black rhino 25 feet away from our picnic lunch, up close photos of the most beautiful leopard, 1930’s style Pioneer Camp where you felt like you were in a Ernest Hemingway novel with unbelievable accommodations and service everywhere we went. If you get the opportunity do it! If not now – when?

I. Client Review - Our Clients Say It Best!
 
Hey Grant,
I wanted to drop you and your staff a note now that my family and I have completed our first trip to our new condo on Sandy Beach. First of all, we had a blast. The girls even approved of most of the previous owners decorations.
I was going to write a list write you with a list of ways you exceeded my expectations. But I didn’t hire you to exceed my expectations. I hired you to meet them. That is when I realized that no list was necessary because you met them all.
You listened to what I wanted in a property. You listened to what I needed in a property. You listened to where we wanted to stay. You were honest when you told me the good things about properties. You were honest when you discussed bad things about properties. You were honest when things were running on time. You were honest when things were not going to work with my schedule. You were considerate with my time. You were considerate about my schedule changes when flights were canceled. You made all of my offers quickly. You kept me informed of all counter offers and correspondence with the sellers right away. You gave me assistance with every request I had once my bid was accepted. You made sure the closing went as planned and on time.
Thank you so much for all of your assistance, information, professionalism, honesty, consideration, and your time. You, your family, and your staff were wonderful to deal with and they took care of me like I was their only customer.
 I have no plans to ever leave Rocky Point. But if I ever decide to upgrade, you will be my only call.

"Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend. Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today and creates a vision for tomorrow." - Melody Beattie
 
Happy Thanksgiving from our home to yours!

A. Rosa's Impact in Rocky Point.
The recent tropical storm Rosa left behind flooded streets and homes in various parts of Puerto Peñasco, as well as several cars stranded in spontaneous lakes.
The remnants of Hurricane Rosa, which had been downgraded to a Tropical Storm by the time she visited Puerto Peñasco, could be felt throughout town starting principally Monday evening (Oct 1st) and through Tuesday. In her wake, she left thousands of Peñasco families recovering from damage to homes and principal roadways.
Donations are welcomed and needed in the Fire Station or Red Cross.

F. El Pinacate & Gran Desierto de Altar Biosphere Reserve
 
Definitely this should be on the top of your activities while visiting Rocky Point when the summer is gone.
 
This UNESCO Heritage Site is known for its unique physical and biological characteristics, by the presence of a  volcanic shield , and by the extensive areas of active  dunes  that surround it, and the greatest concentration of  Maar  craters.
The  Pinacate Mountains range has  orogenic  features of high interest, products of volcanic eruptions that accumulated lava in compact rocks, sand and volcanic ashes that formed colors of special beauty, and craters such as El Elegante, Cerro Colorado, MacDougal, and Sykes.

I. Client Review - Our Clients Say It Best!
 
"Grant MacKenzie Sr., was such a pleasure to work with. He cared about our interests, dedicated his time, and was diligent to find us the home that matched our needs. The entire process was extremely smooth. He was able to complete a very complex transaction with ease. I don't think someone without his knowledge and experience would have been able to get the same result. His constant communication kept us informed from start to finish. I would highly suggest working with him and will definitely do business with him again ."
 
Sincerely,
Tim Metcalf & Family

Rocky Point News September 2018 - Viva Mexico!❤️


 
 
 
 
 
Viva Mexico!
 
 
"What children need most are the essentials that grandparents provide in abundance. They give unconditional love, kindness, patience, humor, comfort, lessons in life. And, most importantly, cookies."- Rudolph Giuliani.
 
September: Our fall is upon us! The season of “harvest” for you and your loved ones. What seeds have you planted both for yourself and others?, In what ways can you now receive nourishment and joy from the “crops” you’ve planted? 
Sharing our harvest is one of life’s greatest joys. This includes the items we give to our bodies and spirits. It’s  time to think about how we can turn an ordinary moment into a festive occasion; a special time to share with young and not so young.
What 3 ways can we do something for someone else and for ourselves? Reap your harvest with gratitude, joy, love and laughter one day at a time. 
 
Who can you share our beautiful beach with? Now’s the time! 
 
Judy
