Who is this guy writing the blog?????

Carefree (AZ)-It's fitting that Preston Westmoreland has chosen a newspaper format for this blog. He started out writing for a small newspaper in Los Angeles before becoming a reporter while a sergeant in the U.S. Marine Corps.  But it was in radio and real estate where he spent his life.  As one of Phoenix's first and longest-running talk show hosts on KTAR Radio, Preston interviewed over 27,000 guests over a 26-year career, was twice-nominated to the Radio Hall of Fame in Chicago, inducted into the Arizona Broadcaster's Association Hall of Fame, and won radio's Oscar award, "The Marconi" for "Best Large Market Radio Broadcaster in the Nation."   See Preston's Radio Pages for more.

    When jumping into real estate with his escrow officer wife, Nancy, in 2005, he earned the "Rookie of the Year" award for selling the highest volume of real estate of any new agent in the company. He and his wife stunned the local real estate crowd by selling one of America's most unusual houses, the legendary "Boulder House," built out of a pile of rocks in North Scottsdale, for close to $ 5 million dollars.  The sale was so unusual, it was covered by numerous newspaper articles in the Arizona Republic.  Preston can be seen taking the local Fox News reporters through some of the most unusual homes on the market in the Phoenix area.  Preston and Nancy are long-time residents of the unique Carefree and Cave Creek area that he writes about in this blog. They've used the spectacular setting for their Stay Alive, A Guide to Suvival in the Southwest Deserts DVD.  That and their Stay Alive, mountain survival DVD were sold around the United States and even featured on Japanese television and the David Letterman Show. 

Preston and Nancy work in Carefree at Russ Lyon Sotheby's International Realty, the largest Sotheby franchisee in the world. Thank you very much for reading our blog!
