West USA Realty

Greetings, readers – especially those in Buckeye, I might add! This is an exciting week as I have a number of developments in Buckeye, where we’ve had a bit of a Briefcase draught for the past few weeks.

Almost entirely focusing on that city, this week’s Briefcase has everything from a long-awaited church to real estate and physical therapy. But I will waste no more time; here’s the news!

First, I’ll start with a long-awaited one. Ever since I was informed by the city of Buckeye a ways back, I have been waiting for information on Summit Community Church’s first official location. Well, it’s finally approaching. A groundbreaking ceremony is set for 2 p.m. Saturday, February 23. The property is located near Verrado Way and Roosevelt Street, across from West-MEC, but it doesn’t have a formal address yet. According to Pastor Nate Schaus, the goal is a late 2019-early 2020 opening. Schaus added it will be around 40,000 square feet, which he estimated will double its capacity. Currently, the church holds worship in the Verrado High School west side auditorium at 20050 W. Indian School Road. According to its website, service are 9 a.m. and 10:45 a.m. Sundays. An administrative office is located at 14545 W. Indian School Road, Goodyear. For more information, visit summitcc.org.

Moving along, Buckeye’s Bello Sol Inc. recently acquired West USA Realty of Prescott, and the former’s corporate office will relocate to 231 N. Marina Street in the Northern Arizona city. For more information about the Prescott-based real-estate business, visit westusaofprescott.com.

“We are excited to be part of the West USA Realty of Prescott team and continue providing high-quality real estate services in the Prescott, Prescott Valley and Chino Valley markets. We are honored to be a part of the West USA Realty International family as a franchisee,” said Mike D. Eastwood, Bello Sol Inc. CEO. He operates the business with his wife, Cynthia, who is vice president and has more than 16 years’ real estate experience.

“West USA Realty of Prescott specializes in residential, commercial, land, business opportunities, rentals, relocation and luxury homes,” Mike continued. “As these markets grow, we will be in search of real estate agents who share the same core values to join our team.”

Empower Physical Therapy began taking appointments February 18 and will officially open Monday, February 25. Located at 4252 N. Verrado Way, Suite 203, Buckeye, this office comes in addition to others in Glendale, Mesa, Chandler and San Tan Valley. The new Southwest Valley location is headed by Mitas Medrano, who has a bachelor’s degree in physical therapy from the University of Santo Tomas in the Philippines and more than 25 years of experience in health care. Empower Physical Therapy is in the same spot as Medrano’s previous practice, ChiroFit. For more information, visit kinectpt.net.

Finally, Lunch N Learn on Tuesday, March 5, will focus on Legal Issues for Small Business, including coverage on when, why and how to hire an attorney. Presented by attorney Ted Ashton of Faith, Ledyard & Faith PLC, the event is from noon to 1:30 p.m. at the Southwest Valley Chamber of Commerce, 289 N. Litchfield Road, Goodyear, at the southeast corner of Van Buren Street and Litchfield Road. Attendance is free and lunch will be provided, but reservations are required. For more information, contact the chamber at 623-932-2260 or info@southwestvalleychamber.org.

That’s all the briefs for this week. Thanks for reading!
