SELLING HOMES SINCE 2005 IN: Blackstone, Trilogy & Vistancia Village
IT’S A GREAT TIME TO SELL!
LAKE PLEASANT REAL ESTATE
JAY PATEL - Owner / Agent
, IS IT TIME TO PULL THE TRIGGER?
As an expert on the Blackstone, Trilogy & Vistancia Village real estate scene, I am often asked by residents “Is it a good time to put my house on the market?” While there are several factors that affect my answer, it’s easy to say NOW is a great time! Why? Here are just a few indicators. There are 107 homes for sale in all of Vistancia right now compared to 183 this time last year, which means inventory is low. Currently, homes are selling in 94 days. Last year, that number was 116 ...that’s down by 22 days! In fact, last month I had multiple homes that sold in less than 30 days. Homes are selling faster! Many Millennials are buying their 1st homes and Baby Boomers are looking to downsize while interest rates are still low. So, our Buyer pool is larger than prior years! Also, prices are on the rise again. Low inventory, increase in number of buyers, rising prices, the impressive selling features/amenities offered by all 3 of our Vistancia communities, combined with my marketing strategy are the perfect recipe for a fast & top dollar sale of your home! Pull that trigger NOW! Like they say… Strike while the iron is hot! To SELL Your Home Fast, Call or Text

Communications Change, But Names Stay the Same
After accomplishing so much in a short time, it came as no surprise Adam’s experiences would lead to new opportunities. As he announced last month, Adam has transitioned to a new role as a Content Specialist at CCMC’s corporate office in Scottsdale.
By Craig Pustejovsky Community Manager
We’re grateful for Adam’s hard work and dedication. We knew finding a new team member to continue what he started and maintain momentum into the future would be no easy task, but I believe we were able to do so.
As I’ve written in the past, we continue to strengthen the communications program of the Association. Resident response to our website and magazine revisions has been overwhelmingly positive. Combine that with an increased presence on social media and expanded coverage in our weekly eNews, and our communications efforts are reaching more residents than ever.
I’m pleased to introduce Adam Rosen as your new Communications Coordinator. A native of the Chicago suburbs, this Adam recently relocated to Phoenix. Prior to joining our team, he served as communications director for a membershipdriven organization of nearly 30,000 in Chicago. I believe his experience and personality will allow us to continue moving forward without missing a beat in implementing our communications plan.
Much of this can be credited to the work of outgoing Communications Coordinator Adam Testa and the Communications Committee. Adam’s work through the past 15 months to improve our communications program and ensure residents are receiving the information they need in the formats they want has been invaluable to the management team and Board of Directors.
Please join me in welcoming Adam Rosen to the management team and wishing Adam Testa the best in his future endeavors. I’m confident both Adams will find success in their new roles.

board report The Power of Community
By Daren Sanborn
Vice President | Board of Directors
After a series of weather-related tragedies across the country in recent weeks, I took a moment to reflect on all the reasons we have to be thankful. Hundreds of thousands of people have literally lost everything and will, in many ways, be starting over from scratch. If you’re able to do so, please consider donating to help those who must rebuild their homes and lives. It's hard to see events like that unfold and not reflect back on the amazing lives we all have. I feel truly lucky to live in Vistancia, to have so many great neighbors and friends in this amazing community, and to be able to serve the community on the Board of Directors. That being said, I also recognize many of you have questions or requests you'd like to present to the Board and are unsure how to do so. The role of the Board, among other responsibilities, is to represent the residents who elected us. The Board, however, is not meant to replace the residents' voices. If you have a question for the Board or an issue you’d like to see addressed, feel free to write down your concerns and submit it to the Community Manager, who will distribute it to the Board for discussion at our next meeting. You don't need to be at the meeting to have the item on the agenda, but that would certainly help, depending on the complexity of the question or request. There are also several other ways you can take a more active role in our community. These include: • Apply to serve on one of our committees, which include Activities, Budget Advisory, Communications, Design Review, and Landscape. • Volunteer at one of our events. We have several great events coming up that need volunteers, such as Hallowscream. • Attend a Board meeting. Our meetings are regularly held at 6:30 p.m. on the fourth Tuesday of every month at the MVC Clubhouse. Meetings usually last 60-90 minutes. Thank you; I hope to see you at one of our events or meetings.

admin desk Access ID Cards Discounted During October By Casey Doscher
Your Access ID card is more than your key to unlocking amazing community amenities; it’s your identification as a resident of our community authorized to use those community assets. Our Community Patrol team use Access ID cards to verify residency when patrolling at the pools or the gym. Each homeowner is entitled to two free Access ID cards. Additional cards can be purchased, and this month, the management team will offer Village at Vistancia cards* at a special discounted price of $6. This is a great chance to replace any lost cards or to purchase them for children who might not have their own cards yet. Cards will be issued to those residing in the home; exceptions will be made in special circumstances. Youth must be 10 years old to have their own Access ID cards. Those ages 10-13 will only have access to the MVC Gym. At age 14, they can access all amenities. I can’t stress enough the importance of carrying your Access ID card with you whenever using community amenities. Community Patrol will be conducting ID checks more often to ensure amenities are being used properly by residents and their guests. As a reminder, each homeowner is allowed to bring two guests. Those using the amenities without proper identification may be asked to leave the property. Additionally, our maintenance team has recently added security alarms to the doors along the northern glass wall of the MVC Gym. These doors are now emergency exits and should not be used to grant entry to the building. Please use the doors at either end of the building, which are accessible with your Access ID cards. Opening the emergency exit doors will cause an alarm to sound. Purchasing an Access ID card is simple. Stop by the Association Office between 8 a.m.-4:30 p.m. Monday to Friday and visit me at the front desk. An adult must accompany a child who needs an ID. The individual who will be using the card must be present, as the cards require a photo. Again, if you need a replacement Access ID card or wish to get one for other members of your household, now’s the time as we’re offering them at a 50-percent discount. I look forward to seeing your smiling faces and helping set you up with access to our great amenities. *Residents of Acacia Grove and Primrose Estates can receive additional or replacement cards for those neighborhood amenities, as well, for an additional $6.

communications brief The Value of Teamwork
Teamwork: It may sound cliché, but it does make a world of difference.
Without a solid team, even the best can’t reach the ultimate goal alone. Without their supporting cast, Michael Jordan and Tom Brady don’t win their multiple championships. Not having great teammates prevented some of the best, like Charles Barkley and Dan Marino, from reaching their ultimate goal.
By Adam Rosen
The same rings true here in Vistancia. It took no time to realize I’ve joined a championship team that I’m proud to work with. Everyone - including the management team, committee members, and residents - has not only been welcoming but has also shown what teamwork is truly about. I’ve never been a part of a team that works better together and is as dedicated toward one goal of serving those whom they work for. It’s this teamwork that makes this community great. I want to thank Adam Testa for the training and knowledge he has shared through the last few weeks. To say I’ve heard “you’ve got big shoes to fill” a few times about this position and the work he has done would be an understatement. I’m ready for the challenge and look forward to seeing the great work Adam T. will bring to the entire CCMC family in his future endeavors.
COLLABOR AT I ON | SUP P O RT | RESP O N S I B I L I T Y | V I S TA N C I A
You may notice some small differences in our work (like the sports reference above), but we share many common traits besides our first name. You will find no one who will work harder toward making sure your communications needs are met and are presented in a way that is not only informative but visually appealing and available in different formats for everyone to use. I look forward to meeting all of you and contributing my part. I’m excited to join a winning team.

featured event Calling All Ghosts and Ghouls By Melissa Parsons
HA LL OW SC RE AM RE TU
RN S OC T. 27
Signs of the seasons changing are everywhere. Kids are back in school, temperatures are falling below triple digits, and orange-and-black-themed decorations are popping up in yards after lining store shelves for the last six weeks. All this means one thing: One of our biggest and best events is right around the corner! The third annual Hallowscream, a celebration of costumes and sweet treats, will be Friday, Oct. 27, from 5-8 p.m. on the MVC Event Lawn. Have a spook-tacular time as hundreds come together for tricks, treats, music, inflatables and games, a costume parade, and - most important to the holiday – candy along the trick-or-treat trail! Tickets are just $5 per child and are available at myvistancia.com or at the Lifestyle Office.
CANDY STATION VOLUNTEERS REQUIREMENTS: Heart of service. Must enjoy making children smile. Halloween spirit preferred. It’s hard to find easier Halloween fun than this; you can dress up and deck out your station, or you can simply bring lawn chairs and hand out goodies along the candy trail. The best part? The candy is provided, so there’s no cost other than your time! If you are interested in becoming a candy station volunteer, please fill out the form online at myvistancia.com/candy or stop by the Lifestyle Office.
CANDY DONATIONS We hope this request doesn’t make you snicker, but you can help make this year’s Hallowscream sweeter than ever. With a crowd of 1,000 expected this year, we want to make sure we have enough candy for every ghost, goblin, superhero, and all costumed kids along the candy trail. You can be a lifesaver this year and donate bags of candy to bring joy and mounds of fun to kids during Hallowscream. Be sweet, don’t be sour; drop off candy donations at the Association office by Friday, Oct. 20.
Special thanks to our sponsors for making this event possible:

Take a Hike By Hannah Crosby Lifestyle Assistant
Winter is coming, which means we can look forward to a stark drop in temperatures. Much of our population lives here solely for our crisp 60-degree winters. When people hear of Arizona, they think of a sandy and hot desert, but it’s so much more than that. We’re incredibly lucky to live in the beautiful Sonoran Desert with scattered mountains, wide-open blue skies, and stunning vegetation. What better way to enjoy our winter weather and exclusive landscapes than to go out and experience it yourself? The simple way to do this in the city is by hiking! Vistancia resident and Hiking Club facilitator Sarina Hobbs decided the best way to hike is in the company of neighbors and friends.
Our club meets every other Saturday at 6:30 a.m. at the Foothills Center. All hikes are easy to moderate level, so all ages and fitness levels are welcome. Every other hike is in Vistancia, which is great for new members to get to see parts of their neighborhood they may not have seen yet, while other hikes take place at Lake Pleasant, Thunderbird Park, White Tanks, and many other trails. Join the “Vistancia Hiking Club” Facebook page to learn the location of each hike, ask questions, and suggest trails you’d like to hike with the club. We can’t wait to meet more wonderful neighbors while enjoying hiking in this incredible community.”
If you’re someone with an adventure bug, hiking is the perfect way to regularly fulfill that need. Not only is it a suitable source of exercise, it has also been proven to benefit mental health. “The Vistancia Hiking Club is meant for the community The quiet character of nature decreases negative thoughts to get to know their neighbors while hiking in a beautiful during rumination. setting.

Hiking here and all around the Northwest Valley has created some great experiences, gorgeous photo ops, and lasting friendships.

It Takes a
good neighbor recognition
I M P O R TA N T PHONE NUMBERS ASSOCIATION
The Village at Vistancia is full of good neighbors, whose kind acts make this community such a wonderful place to live. That’s why Vistancia and Print2order® are happy to offer this new program, It Takes a Village, to recognize good neighbors and share the stories of their selfless acts of kindness. As a resident of Vistancia we are asking you to share the stories about your neighbors who went above and beyond the normal neighborly duties. There is no act to small or insignificant; villages are built one kind act at a time. Each quarter we will select one story to spotlight in the Vistancia Living Magazine and in the spirit of giving back, Print2order will pay the quarterly assessments* for both the good neighbor and the neighbor who shared the story. The next winner will be announced in the December edition for the January assessments. Find out who won this quarter on page 23.

Liberty’s New Principal Has a Vision
By Grace Copperthite
Liberty High School Student
I’ve never been sent to the principal’s office before, so it was a little odd when I went there for the very first time. Not because I was in trouble, but because I was going to meet the new principal at my school, Tawn Argeris.
Mr. Argeris | Liberty High School Principal
Upon walking in, the first thing I noticed was a painting of sunflowers on his wall. I would come to learn the painting directly correlated to his personality. Mr. Argeris has a very welcoming smile and a bright personality. The relentlessly positive attitude probably stems in part from his humble roots. Mr. Argeris was born and raised in the small town of Worland, Wyoming. From there, he went to the University of Wyoming to get his teaching degree. He also wrestled for the university, an experience that helped shape him into the man he is now. He later moved to Arizona, where he taught in Casa Grande for three years while also holding a part-time job as a firefighter. Mr. Argeris has spent 29 years in public education, 19 of them in administration, including time as assistant principal at Sunnyslope and principal at Buckeye. Experience is a large part of why he was chosen to take the reins from our previous principal, John Croteau, who has moved on to a larger role in the district office. Mr. Argeris’ plan for Liberty is “to see continuous growth” among our students. He wants them to be able to compete academically with other students and schools beyond the Peoria Unified School District. His vision for Liberty students is that “wherever they go, and whatever happens, they will be successful.”

lake pleasant elementary Learning Gets Personal at Lake Pleasant By Dustin Hamman Principal
We’re excited to announce Lake Pleasant staff and students are beginning a journey down the path of personalized learning. This is new to us and very exciting! We’re exploring digital content, which is support software that engages students to learn academic standards at their current academic level. Teachers are also supported by utilizing data and information from the software in order to modify instructional practices and groupings.
what grade is this?
The support software, Imagine Learning, is being utilized in K-8 classes (K-6 ELA, 3-8 Math), IXL (K-2 Math), Flex Literacy (3-5 ELA), and Study Sync (6-8 ELA). Staff members have started professional development courses on the software, and our digital content is just now beginning to be put in front of our students. Early results have shown students really enjoy the incorporation of digital learning, and our staff have enjoyed the opportunity to extend their reach to each individual child through the support of the digital software. In other news, our annual Lake Pleasant Silverhawk PTO Fall Festival is set for 5:30-8:30 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 9, at Lake Pleasant Elementary. This year’s festival will be bigger and better than ever! Tickets are on sale for $10 in advance and $12 at the door. The festival, which is open to the public, includes 20-30 vendors, food trucks, a ballistic swing ride, rock climbing wall, band/choir performances, multiple inflatables, face painting, a craft table, concession stands, and cotton candy sales. If you have questions or want to volunteer at the Fall Festival, please contact the PTO at firstname.lastname@example.org. Stay up to date by checking out the Lake Pleasant Elementary website at peoriaunified.org/lakepleasant and liking us on Facebook! Lake Pleasant is a school of choice built on trust, community and collaboration. We are invested in providing meaningful experiences promoting individual success and a passion for lifelong learning.

blackstone country club Blackstone Country Club Golf Course Annual Overseeding By the Vistancia Information Center
Temperatures are beginning to cool, and conditions are favorable to begin overseeding efforts at golf courses in Arizona. Blackstone Country Club will begin its annual overseeding process and the course will remain closed Monday, Oct. 2, through Thursday, Oct. 26; the course will re-open for play on Friday, Oct. 27.

During the course closure, Club members can still enjoy all other Club amenities, including the 24-hour fitness center and dining facilities, resort pools, tennis courts, driving range, and golf shop. To celebrate the new season, a Kick-Off Party will be held in November to celebrate another year of great golf to come for Blackstone Country Club golf members. Blackstone Country Club offers several choices for Golf Membership, including Equity Golf, Non-Equity Junior Golf, and Non-Equity Corporate Golf.

Northern Community Park Update By Bridget Binsbacher
Mesquite District Representative Peoria City Council
The Northern Community Park design is nearly complete and will enter the permitting process soon with city, county, state, and federal entities. Different than Peoria’s prior neighborhood and community parks, this park will be developed on land owned by another entity, the Flood Control District of Maricopa County. The federal government deed-restricted the land for recreational purposes but retains the authority to review and approve all proposed uses and improvement plans. Since 2015, the City of Peoria and Flood Control District have worked closely with the Bureau of Land Management and Army Corps to study and resolve any flood management, cultural, or biological impacts of the proposed park. During these investigations, several previously identified cultural resources (artifacts) were re-examined by archaeologists and have been recommended for further investigation before construction. These investigations, and the careful documenting of our city and state’s cultural history, are an important step in the development process. The construction phase begins in the fall of 2019, and the park opening is scheduled for May 2020. On a fun note, the Community Services Department has completed the public input on proposed park names. While all of the site, park, and building infrastructure follow a path through permitting, the final designs of the playgrounds, splash pad, and public art can now be fully developed.

police beat Stay Vigilant By Charles Bezio
North Precinct Commander Peoria Police Department
Peoria Fire-Medical Sends Team to Gulf Coast to Assist with Hurricane Relief Efforts Last month, Peoria Fire-Medical sent personnel and equipment to assist with relief and recovery efforts in the Gulf Coast following Hurricane Harvey. Peoria firefighters were a part of a 20-person Type 3 All Hazards Incident Management Team. The Peoria crew left Sept. 2 for Jasper County, Texas, to help run an Emergency Operations Center. The City of Peoria is reimbursed by the state or federal government for all costs associated with deploying personnel and equipment to respond to disasters. Peoria Awarded for Drowning Prevention Efforts The City of Peoria received the Corporate Award for its efforts in drowning prevention and keeping community members safe around water. The City was honored at the Drowning Prevention Coalition of Arizona’s Annual Awards Ceremony in late August. Peoria teaches more than 9,000 swim lesson participants, starting at six months old through adulthood, annually at three city pools and has become a leader in lifeguard training in Arizona.
Some of the great things about living in Peoria are pristine views, quiet neighborhoods, and safe communities. As we enjoy the cooler weather of fall and the company of our neighbors, we often forget we live in a metropolitan area and those things affecting neighboring cities, such as crime, can sometimes move into our communities. Although crime in Peoria is down compared to 2016, we must not become complacent by providing easy opportunities for criminals. As you may have seen in the news, there has been a trend of vehicle burglaries. Subjects are going through neighborhoods, checking for cars with unlocked doors and taking anything of value. These thieves have struck in Buckeye, Goodyear, Surprise, Glendale, and - yes - Peoria. They seek out peaceful neighborhoods and communities that have lowered their guard and left themselves vulnerable to pilfering. Even though police continue to track leads and arrest perpetrators, the best way to stop these criminals is through prevention. LOCK IT. TAKE IT. REMOVE IT.
Halloween Monster Bash Scheduled for Oct. 28 You’ll have so much fun it’s scary at Peoria’s annual Halloween celebration and balloon illumination, the Halloween Monster Bash, on Oct. 28. Enjoy a costume parade, trick-or-treating, carnival games, a rock wall, entertainment, and much more from 5-9 p.m. at the Peoria Sports Complex. This is a great, safe event for children’s Halloween fun. Bring canned food items to donate and admission is free! Donations support the St. Mary's/ Westside Food Bank Alliance. New Website Launched The City of Peoria recently upgraded its website, creating a more user-friendly experience for residents. The new site offers easy access to information regarding events, public services and other important community updates. The site also allows residents to easily pay bills and report issues to the city administration and staff. The site can be viewed at peoriaaz.gov.
That’s the best way to prevent becoming a victims. Make sure you lock car doors and roll up windows when you park your vehicle. Take your car keys/ fobs with you. Remove valuables, such as purses, wallets, computers, and briefcases, from your vehicles. Taking these steps greatly reduces the chances of having your vehicle burglarized. Enjoy the wonderful peace and tranquility of our city, but keep in mind, we do live in a metropolitan area, and, sometimes, those outside our community wander into our neighborhood looking for targets of opportunity. Stay vigilant and protect your property from these crooks looking for an easy score.
