When you think of fantastic home design you think of Visionario @ Large and Joey Sarandos. Now you can expand your thinking to office design.

Do You Want To Sell
Your Rehab Fast?That’s an obvious question – we all do! So what is the trick? So much time and money is spent on systems updates, roofs, and structural issues, that many times there’s nothing left for what really makes the sale: what your potential buyers see. And more importantly, what they fall in love with. People don’t walk into your house, and say, “Wow, they have all new electric. Let’s buy.” That’s just a core expectation. The trick to selling houses fast is to seduce your customers to fall in love when they walk through. It has to feel like a home to them. The two most inexpensive yet surefire ways we have found to create this atmosphere is through color and through decorating. A tastefully decorated house really stands out from the others. New house builders learned this a long time ago. Why do you suppose they hire interior decorators? But they have the advantage of creating one masterpiece to sell many. Rehabbers don’t have that luxury. But we discovered that a house can be “staged” to feel like a lived in home. Staging is the art of artistically placing décor items around the house. Perhaps a colorful place setting on the kitchen counter along with open coffee beans for aroma, and an open recipe book turned to a colorful picture. Bathrooms dressed up with beautiful towels, sweet smelling soaps, and window treatments as shower curtains. Finally, fireplace mantels decorated as if the family was already living there. But even staging doesn’t create the ambience you need. It is the warmth that comes from color. You may have heard to use a white-on-white color scheme to remain neutral and not turn anyone off. The truth is – no one is turned ON either. Buyers aren’t attracted to all white houses. At best, there’s no emotion. With the use of contemporary designer colors, however, these same people fall in love with the home. That’s the emotion that sells. When they love, they buy. And they fall in love with houses that are brought to life with full color.

Arizona Gay Rodeo Association
Welcome to Arizona's official Gay Rodeo AssociationAGRA is a 501c(4) organization incorporated in the State of Arizona and is proud to host the annual Arizona Gay Rodeo formily RoadRunner Regional Rodeo for IGRA .
We're totally funded by private donations and our membership fees.
A little historyThings were shaking in Phoenix as early as 1982, when a small group traveled to the Reno rodeo and Tish Tanner won the title of Miss Reno National Gay Rodeo. Arizona came to life in the fall of 1984 when John King decided to open a second Charlie's in Phoenix.
The bar opened in early November and since John and Kenny Cunitz lived and breathed rodeo, it was only a matter of weeks before the Arizona Gay Rodeo Association (AGRA) formed.
In December 1984 the new group targeted January of 1986 for their first rodeo. Arizona became the fifth state to host a gay rodeo and the event took place in the most unique arena facility on the south side of Phoenix: a Mexican Charro rodeo arena with an attached dance hall known as the Corona Ranch.
AGRA is proud to be one of the 5 founding members of the International Gay Rodeo Association (IGRA) and priveleged to hold the Arizona heat for the International Rodeo league.
Since then. the story continues...
