With the holidays "here" and the number of winter rentals dwindling, use the "Find an Agent" tab to find a rental agent in Sedona. Do it quickly.

Best of luck and "Happy Thanksgiving!" ... more

Whether it is petroglyphs, canyons. Native Americans, in Sedona those who aspire to the practices of clarity of thought have the opportunity to touch time. Just relax and wait a while to feel the spirit of the place and touch time.....the sediment in the canyon wall, the stratification and imagine to go there when it was now! ... more

I've lived in the village on and off since 1983 so I don't think you can help me. But, since you give value estimates I believe it is important that you list the amenities rather than say there are none available.

I own the home at 240 Verde Valley School Road in Sedona, and there is a grocery store a short walk away (1.5 blocks), a bank, several realtors, at least a half dozen restaurants, several high quality hotels, a complete medical community, etc., and they're all in walking distance.

Your hookup with Yelp doesn't work. It needs to be fixed for your value estimates to have any credibility. Thanks.

Hi Sheri!
The list is endless! So much to do and see. I have lived here for 28 years, and have not even touched 10 % of activities, goings-on, festivals, restaurants, cultural activities etc. I would have to take 10 years off to do so. :-)
These links might help:

Just a few ideas! There are different cultural, art, festivals, etc etc every week!
Plus dining experiences of all types from top French and European cuisine, to health food, to Ethnic!

Bob: You can buy my 1,100 sf 2BM 2 bath West Sedona condo that enjoys a 120 degree view of the red rocks and is 1/2 mile from the post office, movies and shopping. It is currently rented with a three year lease and month to month thereafter. You can buy it now or buy it later in a few years. I have no loan on the property and I am in no hurry to sell but if you want it - it's yours. I have lived here 7 years and moved out a year ago into a bigger home still in Sedona.

email me at: for more information

Dear brokers: The property is not listed and I have a favorite broker agent if I feel the need to list.
Please do not respond in any way to my posting Thank you in advance for your cooperation.
If Bob wants it, great, otherwise I am just going to sit tight and collect the rent.

Hi Jay;
Having lived in Sedona since 1978, I can remember a time when my mother called from CA and asked “do you have any idea what the lead story in your local newspaper is this week?" At the time, our local newspaper, the Red Rock News had reported on its' front page a story about a person in town that was writing insufficient funds checks.
It is true. For years and years, most of us did not lock our houses, or our cars. I can also honestly say that even today, when I show homes for sale, I generally leave my purse in the car without locking it.
Unfortunately, there’s no longer(perhaps there never was) any such thing as a “safe” place to live in this earth. Be it natural catastrophes, or disturbed human beings, humans must always be on guard.
However, while crime is reported, acts of kindness are generally left unreported, under-reported, or overlooked. I’ll give you a few examples. On April 11th, the Red Rock News reported on their front page a story about the body of what was believed to be that of Rev. Jim Scwartz being found by “a volunteer Searcher”, and then the story went on to focus on Rev. Schwartz and his family. Other incidents have been more personal. I received a call from a neighbor lady who was walking her dog. She had noticed that water was seeping out the front door of a home I had on the market for sale, which was vacant. I thanked her for the call, and drove to the house to investigate. Sure enough! I accessed the home, and determined that a water pipe had come loose between the wall and the holding tank of a nearby toilet, sending water up into the air much like a water fountain. I have dined at Judy’s and absentmindedly forgotten my purse. Only to find that by the time I returned to the office, there was a phone message waiting for me, telling me where my purse could be found. Recently, I was concluding the negotiations on an offer to purchase when I received a call from my husband telling me that Carol needed my help. Her husband had left for a hike earlier in the day, and now, nearly dusk, he was still not back yet. Could I please pick her up and take her to the trailhead (they only had one car and Mike had it)? This I did. By the time we reached the trailhead, it was dark, and I wasn’t about to let Carol go search for Mike, so I called search and rescue for help. Within hours, twelve volunteers, fully trained in search and rescue operations were in full search mode, and they searched for Mike into the early hours of the morning of a very cold morning.
And, that’s why I love living here, in Sedona.
Let me know if I can be of help.
Bye for now,
