About Theresa Krakauer

I am a licensed real estate agent and I live in Phoenix, Arizona. We have moved all over the world (Malaysia, Switzerland and South Korea) and have now decided to call Arizona home. We love the weather here and spend as much time outside as possible. We bought this house so our friends from around the world would come to visit and have a place to stay. Many of them live in cold climates, so I hope they will escape the snow and come and enjoy the gorgeous sunshine that we have here. I also love to meet new people. Our son is attending school in Wisconsin and our daughter in New York, so we are now more aware of what 'cold' really means. I grew up in Seattle but escaped to the sun for college. It's time to escape the cold and enjoy the winter sunshine in Arizona. Life is too short to be cold. We look forward to meeting you.

Theresa Krakauer purchased this house in 2013

Why Theresa Krakauer chose Saratoga Springs Condominium

This was a brand new house when I purchased in November 2013 and first rented in January 2014. It has always been a dedicated furnished rental. I rented it for 2 months to a pro baseball player from the Chicago White Sox (call to find out which one)! I had the builder upgrade the kitchen with granite and stainless steel appliances. I bought brand new furniture, mattresses, dishes, linens, gas BBQ, 2 flat screen TV's, etc. There is Direct TV and high speed internet. I love the idea of being in a gated community in such close proximity to everything, with a community swimming pool and hot tub that renters can use. Pool is NOT heated year round but the hot tub is always toasty. There are some very nice people living in this small little community. I hope you enjoy your time here. Please remember we do not allow you to host any large parties or gatherings in this location.

What makes this house unique

*WALK to Chicago White Sox & LA Dodgers spring training games.

*Close to NFL football, college football playoffs, ice hockey, baseball, NASCAR and golf.

*Newer home in excellent condition.

*Close to major freeways of 101 and 10

*Gated community with community hot tub and swimming pool

*California King size bed in the master bedroom

*3 blocks to a gorgeous new Starbucks with drive thru (caffeine anyone?)

* I live in Phoenix so I can help you with your plans questions with rental house.

*Amazing price when I bought it. Let me know if you'd like to look at homes while you are here, since I am a licensed Realtor.

*I took 8 years of French language instruction and lived in Lausanne, Switzerland if you speak Francais.

Perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

House was perfect for us (2 couples) to attend NCAA Final Four -- we walked to Univ of Phoenix Stadium (about 2 miles) & avoided the traffic & parking headaches! Home was very comfortable & we appreciated that there were some seasonings, cooking oils, extra paper products etc as well as a gas grill for our use. Owner was very easy to work with. Will stay here again if in area.

Great gated neighborhood in a fantastic location in Glendale, with easy access to Gila River Arena, the University of Phoenix Stadium, and Westgate. The house layout and set up was perfect for our family and Theresa was awesome to work with. Definitely would stay there again. Thank you!

This was a great place to stay! Fantastic location close to the stadium, ballparks, and shopping. Theresa is a great host - welcoming and communicative. Should we find ourselves back in Arizona, we'd definitely look to stay in this house again.

Spring Training

  • 5 of 5

We recently returned from spending a month in Phoenix. Everything in the house was perfect. We attended many spring training games and also a hockey game. It is in a great location and a wonderful place to stay. The owner provided information on local activities and was very easy to contact.

Great property

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed here between Christmas and New Years. The house is very nice and comfortable. It is located about 5 minutes from the football stadium and hockey arena. The interstate is 2 minutes away along with shopping and restaurants. The bed in the master bedroom is very comfortable. Free wifi and satellite TV is a bonus. The owner is easy to contact and made the transaction very smooth. The owner made us feel welcome and provided information for the local area(shopping, activities and sights)

Excellent location for the sports enthusiast who needs to get out of the cold weather! Close to professional football, baseball, ice hockey, NASCAR and golf...add that in with the sunshine during the coldest part of the winter, and you will be glad you got off your couch and flew to Arizona for the winter. We look forward to making you feel at home. Theresa
