Steve Belt opens Echo Coffee in South Scottsdale

June 4, 2010 · 5 comments

The last time I posted to the blog was September 1, 2009.  If you are still subscribed to this blog (and for that, I have to say, “wow!”), you may be wondering, “What the heck has Steve Belt been doing for the last 9 months?”  Well, the answer is working on the creation of Echo Coffee in South Scottsdale.

I’ve written a bit about why I created Echo Coffee on my personal blog at My Side Door, so there’s no need to repeat it here.  What I did want to mention is what plans I have for this blog and real estate, as it relates to me personally.

First, I should say that I am no longer a practicing REALTOR.  I still maintain my real estate license, and I still have plenty of my own real estate to manage, but I’m not helping others buy, sell, or lease property.  If you need help with that, I will be happy to refer you to an agent that can best help you.

Given that I’m at Echo Coffee 15 hours a day, it puts me in no position to help you with such an important investment.  That is, unless you think I can work it in between making someone’s cappuccino and the next person’s latte.  Better yet, I’ll make you a cappuccino and your agent a latte, before you head out on that next tour to view homes.

For this site, I’ve partnered with Nick Bastian of RailLife to continue to provide Phoenix MLS Search capabilities.  If you need an agent, you can’t do much better than to work with Nick Bastian.

Nick, Justin McHood, and myself are still exploring what we should do with this blog.  I’m sure something will come to us, but for now, expect updates to continue to be few and far between.

It is with great relief that I learn you are not, in fact, dead. ;)

This is a great blog (even if a little inactive in recent time) and I want to wish you every success with your new coffee house venture. Hopefully you\’ll find a way to make continuing good use of this blogsite!

Hi Steve,

As an owner of a Realty Executives franchise in Edmonton, AB, Canada – I must say that it is sad to hear that your career in Real Estate is coming to an end. That being said though, the coffee shop sounds like a great choice and a definite career change. Happened to find your blog in the in-term and enjoyed reading some of your past real estate related articles. Wishing you the best in your new adventure.

Who knows, maybe next time I am in the Arizona area – I can grab a cup of joe – and share stories of Real Estate.
