“We don’t exactly fit the norm. We are very hands on, and we really are like a big family.” That’s what Angela Fazio told Top Agent Magazine about her and her husband Chuck’s enterprise, Chandler Real Estate Training Center. And the veteran agent was speaking from her heart. Not only does the duo forgo typical boss privileges—such as private offices and the right to legally rename new employees “Junior” and “Sport”—but the pair also takes the crew on team-building trips, such as a recent voyage to Mexico. The happy and relaxed workplace has helped the center’s tight-knit clan achieve high-profile realty success in Arizona, sharing the top spot on Phoenix Business Journal’s 2011 Top 10 Brokers list, as well as nabbing a top 50 ranking on Realtor magazine’s 2008 Top 100 list. Aside from selling properties and helming their team of achieved agents, the Fazios teach real-estate-license training courses, aiding wannabe realtors in grasping the concepts of buying, selling, and trading property for a slightly used Barbie dream house.
Flipping through the Fat Rabbit Tattoo portfolio, a range of tattooing styles bursts from the page—among them: both realistic and pin-up portraits, futuristic biomech schematics and old-school designs, Chinese characters, and tribal designs from Borneo and Marquesas. When translating each work of art to customers' living canvases, the team adds custom touches to previous designs or helps clients flesh out original tattoos on paper from even the vaguest inkling of an idea. Fat Rabbit also conducts piercings—always following safe procedures—such as studs and loops. Within the shop's gallery, guests can peruse the display for tattoo ideas or simply cart home an original signed, matted, and framed work to hang on their back instead.
Named as a top indoor place for kids in Arizona by AZCentral.com, BounceU in Gilbert surrounds sock-clad kids with an arena of giant, colorful inflatables. Within the supervised fun house, young ones get their cardio up by navigating air-filled obstacle courses and slipping down plush slides. On the gigantic Spider Mountain, climbers hone the skills needed to one day scale the greatest inflatable of them all, Mount Everest. The vertical climbing wall challenges children's skills, and a foam-ball shooting range and 20-foot slide provide extra enjoyment. A private party room also makes the springy stadium an ideal venue for birthday parties, field trips, and fundraisers.
