We will be in NV. in Sept. and perhaps re-locating to Tucson within two years. Is it too soon to look? We have specific needs- high walk score.
For me it's never to early to start looking, since you have certain demands. We can start the process. Why don't you give me a call 520-867-0166

Did Bldg E at 2601 W Broadway Blvd have structural problems or need repairs? This is in La Vida 2
