Realtors Don & Kathy Vallee, who work for RE/MAX Excalibur Realty each have more than 10 years sales experience, they believe that the big blue skies and gorgeous mountain backdrops and weather are the major attraction for new comers and part-time residents. “Our Clients come from all over the world to enjoy the 340 days of sunshine.” “We have a very unique desert flora & fauna with majestic saguaros, hiking trails, bike trails, and 4 mountain ranges with the farthest southern ski area called Mount Lemmon.”  Tucson is also known as the Astronomy Capital of the World. “We have a light ordinance in Tucson to protect the viewing from the observatories.” Also, in Dove Mountain they have a building ordinance in place whereby you can only build single levels homes in order to protect the views.”
