Curtis. Roman’s Oasis is a destination with entertainment every night of the week. Live Bands, DJs, Karaoke, Event Poker, both Couples and Line Dance Lessons, and Trivia. Menu items include such delicacies as coconut crusted shrimp, calamari, seared Ahi tuna, green chili chicken pasta and ribeye steaks... as well as ‘fried wonderfuls’.

Reservations for dinner or parties can be made throughout the year; including wedding receptions, birthday parties, and company events (623-512-0852).

As the city grows, so must the roadways. Therefore, Yuma Road is slated to be widened in the near future to accommodate current and future growth. A new building will be established near the cur rent location, on the same property, prior to the existing building being torn down. Since Roman had help from his contemporaries with building and decorating the current building; so Myra wishes to continue the theme of a ‘community build’ when taking down current décor and then placing it at the new building. Community members are encouraged to sign up at Roman’s to assist.

The next generation of Roman’s family is firmly entwined in the business, as Myra’s daughter Sarah Curtis, who grew up working for her Papa, is the General Manager at Roman’s. Roman’s Oasis is located on the SE corner of Cotton Lane and Yuma Road, at 16825 W. Yuma, Goodyear, Az 85338 623-932-0922

BEST REAL ESTATE AGENCY/AGENT

Truly professional. Easy to talk to. Stays in touch. Highly recommend.

"I am so happy I decided to go with Lisa. I almost settled with an investor for my dad's property and would have lost tens of thousands of dollars. She was highly recommended by a family member and I decided to hire her immediately when I consulted with her due to her warm, friendly, optimistic, and trustworthy presence. She knows her stuff..."

You deeply care about your client and their best interests and go above and beyond. You helped clean and stage my mom in-laws house to make sure it presented well during the open house. Excellent follow-up and forward-thinking mindset.

Lisa has the network and ethics and professionalism everyone wants in a realtor. Before, during, and after the time Lisa sold my home, she has provided me with the information I needed and the answers to my questions. Even now, as I still search for a new home in a different state, Lisa continues to be my standard for what is ethical and professional. And, she is the heart of Glendale, AZ - she knows her community and is involved. Which helps her narrow down the ‘right’ home for you. When you ask yourself - what do I want in a realtor - Lisa is the standard to measure by. Thank you Lisa for the awesome, information, timing, photos...everything you did to support me and the sale of my home.

“Lisa truly exceeded our expectations with everything during the sale of our home and purchase of our new one. This felt so overwhelming but was made possible with her help. She went through our home and gave us a room by room, item by item list of what to change to make it ready for listing. She brought in things to help stage our home, arranged for carpet cleaners, house cleaners, and professional photos. By the time she was done I hardly recognized our house it looked so amazing! Check out before and after pictures on her site to see what I mean, not just from my home but others too! When it came to negotiating contracts she explained things so thoroughly, sometimes multiple times when we couldn’t remember her earlier answer, and walked us through each step. She was available whenever we needed her for a phone call, text, appointment at the house, or just a quick reassurance that everything would be okay. And to top it off, a thoughtful move in gift included things like toilet paper and soap which can be easy to forget and some legos for the kids to enjoy and keep busy while we tried to get moved in. While we plan on growing old and gray (grayer) in this house, if we ever have the need for a realtor again she will always have our business! I cannot sing her praises enough!”

Illinois native Amy Lowe has been a musician all of her life. Sharing that passion is No. 1 to her. “My music education philosophy is every stu dent should have a comprehensive music edu cation, even though that doesn’t happen,” she said. “When I came here, I was surprised to see how little the West Valley has.” Music programs lend themselves to socioemotional learning. “What better for these kids than the arts?” She has an answer, too, for folks who say they can’t sing. “If you can talk, if you don’t think you can sing, you’ve never been taught how,” she added. “Everyone should have a chance to be involved in the arts.”
