Every Arizona homeowner should listen
I have been listening to Rosie for almost 20 years. The show is fantastic and is extremely helpful for anybody who owns a home in Arizona. I have saved thousands of dollars following Rosie‘s advice. I’m sure I have saved thousands more by staying away from bad contractors. While the show would probably benefit many homeowners around the country, it should be a staple for everyone living in Arizona!
I moved away from Phoenix about a year ago, and I just remembered how I would use to listen to Rosie on the weekends with my Dad, and it brought back some good memories. Thanks for the quality show and thanks for making it into a podcast so I can still listen even though I’m in Minnesota now!
I love Rosie’s on the House. I grew up listening to them and super excited that now I won’t miss an episode
