About Patti Poe

We live in a wonderful development about 1/2 mile from Our Little House. I (Patti) grew up on a farm in northeastern Colorado. I worked as an attorney in Southern California for many years. Barry was born in Phoenix and grew up in Southern California. We moved to Chandler in 2003 in order for our children to grow up in the family friendly environment Chandler offers and to be educated in the amazing Chandler Schools. We are grateful every day that we have the privilege of living and being a part of the Chandler community. I am a Realtor, and Barry is a self-employed computer consultant. We have always been actively involved in our children's schools and extracurricular activities. We purchased our first rental home in SunBird in 2004 and rented it until we had an opportunity to sell it at a good profit in 2011. We soon discovered that we missed having a connection to SunBird, so we purchased Our Little House in September 2012 and look forward to sharing it with you.

Patti Poe purchased this house in 2012

Why Patti Poe chose Chandler

The residents of SunBird, both full-time residents and winter visitors, are the friendliest people you will find anywhere. The streets are alive with neighbors walking, biking, chatting or heading off to golf together. Every evening, people carry food and wine to a neighbor's house to have dinner together. Laughter is always ringing from the pools. The clubhouse, post office, pro shop and restaurant are filled with people happy to see each other. It is a small town comprised of people from all over who share a common goal of avoiding snow.

What makes this house unique

Our Little House has a very livable floor plan and made us feel at home. We knew that we could make it into a cozy, comfortable home away from home for visitors escaping the cold. Additionally, many of the homes in the community back to another property and do not afford much privacy. Our Little House backs to a street that is not very busy. There is considerably more privacy and not much street noise. Although the homes directly on the golf course are considered premium properties, we appreciate that Our Little House does not have as many dents and cracks from stray golf balls.

My husband and I enjoyed the month of January 2018 at Sun Bird Golf Resort. Our accommodations were fine. The home was perfect for the two of us. We were close to good shopping. We enjoyed the 2 bedroom 2 bath home very much. Our landlords, Patti and Barry were very helpful and attentive. We would certainly consider renting this home again.

Patti & Barry are awesome!

  • 5 of 5

Their property is fully stocked with everything we needed to prepare our meals. We were impressed with how well the unit is organized. My wife and I simply unpacked our bags and made ourselves at home. The listing was accurate in all areas (layout, location, amenities) and the place was spotless! We received great customer service from Patti and Barry and felt the property was priced fairly. I highly recommend staying here at SunBird. Thanks for the great stay!

AWESOME

  • 5 of 5

As a return guest, I am continually pleased with the complete experience! The home is, most importantly, clean. The 'get through till grocery store time' welcome basket is thoughtful and

just right. The location is perfect for my visits with family in the Sunbird community and through out the valley. It is like home with the great friendships of Patti and Barry along side.

They wish for their guests to have and great experience and are available for anything one might need. Definitely the place to stay but please do not select the same dates as I will! LOL! Thanks again, Patti for everything. Viv
