About Jan Gratz
I live in the Annapolis, Maryland area and have family and long time friends that live in the San Tan Valley/Phoenix region. I am a professional photographer and have my own studio in Annapolis specializing in family portraiture. My son is currently in college in Fort Collins, Colorado. I enjoy coming to sunny warm Phoenix for long weekends during the late spring/summer/early fall months and to spend week long visits with family and friends. Because I am not a full time residents, I want to rent my home to snow birds during the winter months or other times of the year so that it is occupied as much as possible while I am not visiting.
Jan Gratz purchased this House in 2015
Why Jan Gratz chose San Tan Valley
My brother and sister in law have lived in Johnson Ranch for several years and several couples from my home state of Nebraska have purchased homes in Johnson Ranch as well. I fell in love with the desert and the Phoenix area many years ago so it was a good fit to invest in a home close to my brother and friends. I enjoy having the clubhouse with the private pool without having to own and maintain one. I enjoy having the golf course within a couple of minutes from our front door. I enjoy the quiet solitude of the backyard watching the quail and hummingbirds, watching the beautiful desert sunset in the evening and listening to the coyotes in the hills at night.
What makes this House unique
The community focuses on adults 55 and older. The HOA manager is onsite at the clubhouse, as well as an event coordinator. You can stay as involved with the activities, i.e. sightseeing trips, shopping, golf, card club, sewing clubs, yoga and much much more, or you can enjoy the beautiful weather and just relax!! There are great tourist attractions in the area. Sedona is about a two hour drive; Tucson is 70 miles, and the Grand Canyon is about a five hour drive. There are several professional baseball spring training fields to enjoy a game or two of baseball, and there are alot of golf courses to choose from throughout the area.

Perfect Winer Oasis for Snowbirds
Here are a few random thoughts: Nicely decorated, well maintained, very clean, well supplied (dishes, pans, hair dryer, kitchen/bathroom supplies, etc.), comfortable king size bed, den with large desk area and color printer, good internet speed, nice large LCD flat screen TV with cable TV, plenty of space (over 1700 sq ft), nice lot, nice landscaping (especially the backyard), view of a few hills, plenty of furniture on patio, lots of visits from humming birds and quail, lots of stars at night, quiet community; nice pools, friendly people, pickleball, bowling on Tuesday mornings in Gilbert, good communication with owner, easy access to Gary Ave (much better than leaving the area via Hunt Hwy), quick drive to Wal-mart, great views from most of the holes on the front 9 of the Johnson Ranch golf course, less than an hour to Sky Harbor, good hiking nearby at San Tan Valley Regional Park, or drive a little farther to the Superstition Mts for better trails. I'm sure I'm missing lots of positive comments, but it's time for dinner, so "Bye"...
