I was born and raised in the Porland, Oregon area. I had never lived anywhere else until moving to Sun City West, Arizona in 1995 after my husband John's retirement from the Portland Police Bureau. My Twenty year plus career was as Director of Security for Nordstrom and May Department Stores. Two daughters, two grandchildren and many, many relatives remain in the rain! Retirement didn't last long for me .... and now I spend 10 days a week listing and selling homes in the sunny Sun Cities for people just like you ... who are starting a new adventure and lifestyle.
