Hi I'm Daisy!
My husband Rob and I met in New Mexico and moved to Phoenix together in 2000. We love the arts, great food and the easy going lifestyle of Arizona! Rob is a Chef and has owned restaurants in the past and we love to entertain and share our home. He does private and commercial catering now. It's fun meeting people from other places and learn of their travels, and we travel when we can & have fond memories of Italy, France and just trips around our lovely State! I am a Real Estate Broker with Real Estate Brokers International. Rob and I share a love for animals and we have our kitties! (they are not allowed in the apartment!) We are both baby boomers and still going strong!
