Arizona’s real estate market is always changing, but those who want to buy or sell their homes in 2014 can get some tips from experts during the “Phoenix Housing Market Explained II” on Saturday, Jan. 25 at Arizona State University’s Tempe campus.

The event, hosted by The Arizona Republic and the W. P. Carey School of Business, will feature speakers Catherine Reagor, senior real estate reporter for The Arizona Republic; Mike Orr, director of the Center for Real Estate Theory and Practice at the W. P. Carey School of Business; and Mark Stapp, director of the Master of Real Estate Development (MRED) program at the W. P. Carey School of Business.

“This is a chance for those thinking about buying or selling homes in the Phoenix area to hear about current price trends and other developments that may affect them,” Reagor said in a statement.

According to the latest report from the W.P. Carey School of Business, single-family home prices and townhouse prices are on the rise, along with supply, while demand is significantly lower than last year.

Keystone Montessori

Keystone Montessori has come a long way since its founding in 1995. Back then it was operated out of the founder’s home before eventually moving on to rent rooms from Horizon Presbyterian Church. It was only in 2000 that they had gained a strong enough enrollment to move into the facility where they currently reside on Liberty Lane, just off Desert Foothills Parkway and across from the Ahwatukee Foothills Family YMCA.

The school services students as young as 18 years old, as part of their toddler program, and as old as ninth-graders. The current enrollment is around 320 students, who all have access to Spanish, music and arts programs in addition to the full Montessori curriculum.

“We provide an authentic Montessori education which focuses on the independence and whole development of the child, including academic as well as social and emotional growth,” said head of school Cindy Maschoff. “We want our students to become independent citizens of the world.”

The school will be taking the time to present the concept of Montessori education to the public Jan. 29 and 30. At the presentations the school will provide a clear understanding of what Montessori education looks like at each level of education. Those wanting to attend should plan on going to both meetings, with the Jan. 29 meeting going from 6-7 p.m. and the Jan. 30 meeting from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. The meetings require attendees to RSVP, which can be done by emailing
