Our family first moved to Lake Havasu
in 1968. In
the early days there were dirt roads, no stop lights, and choices in
groceries (and shopping in general) were sparse. But we’ve seen
enormous changes over the last forty years, which is one reason why I
returned to Lake Havasu City with my family, in 1991. My parents were
still living in Havasu, and although my dad has since passed away, Mom
continues to make Havasu her home.
Today my husband, Don Holmes, is a Realtor and Associate Broker with Arizona Turquoise Properties. Don specializes in residential and commercial real estate, and prides himself in helping his clients find their ideal Havasu property.
If you are interested in learning more about what Lake Havasu City has to offer, please give Don a call at (928) 230-9948 or drop him an email at firstname.lastname@example.org . He can show you everything that’s listed on our local MLS, not just his own listings, so give him a call!

Each area of the country has its own threat of nature. Tornados, hurricanes, floods,
blizzards and earthquakes plague different parts of the country, destroying homes and
Historically, Lake Havasu City has been immune to such threats; its own challenge of nature is the summer heat.
Temperatures begin to accelerate in June, with July and August in Havasu seeing temperatures over 100 degrees, sometimes to 110 or even 120 in record breaking seasons. Since it is a dry heat, many Midwesterners find the heat more bearable than their own summer weather back home.
To cope with the heat some residents seek comfort indoors, yet many head out to the lake for waterskiing and boating, or enjoy their swimming pools. Some retirees take the summer months to visit family and friends in cooler parts of the country.
The biggest advantage to the warmer, dry weather is the feeling of health many residents experience. Those of us who can no longer tolerate cold and damp weather, enjoy the healthful warm climate of Lake Havasu.
