Goals for 2015!

by Dan & Patti Olivas


We believe this is a worthwhile goal for 2015:

Don’t be hesitant or tentative of other's success, in fact celebrate the successes of others with happiness and gusto! When you do this, you authenticate the worth of others, everyone likes to have their successes recognized by others, now you’re adding value to them. 

To us this simple act sets off a boomerang action of good things coming back to you!

Congratulations on all your successes in 2014, now go out and surpass them in 2015.

2014 Amigo Airsho!!

by John Olivas

The 2014 Amigo Airsho opened to a far smaller crowd at it’s new home in the Santa Teresa airport, formally referred to as the Dona Ana International Jetport at Santa Teresa, this past weekend.  New Mexico authorities imposed a limit of 13,000 total attendees per day at the event, compared to over 50,000 per day in previous shows, and it looks like the show easily attracted that many each day.  Having been held on the Biggs Army Airfield for the past 28 (or so) years, it was no small feat to uproot and replant the show 26 miles away!  But, the volunteers prevailed and put on a great show in spite of wind and rain on the show days. 

The headline act was the Unites States Thunderbirds, who flew their F-16 jets in a bone shaking display of power and precision flying.  Leading to the Thunderbirds were a variety of other high performance aircraft including, Franklin’s Flying Circus with Kyle Franklin, Rifle Airshows with Joe Shetterly, the US Army Golden Knights parachute team and even a jet powered school bus.  In the end, though, it was the jet powered outhouse that got the most laughs from the crowd. 

On Sunday the field was hastily cleared as a brief but intense thundershower lumbered over the field leaving an amazing double-rainbow over the airstrip.  The rain shortened the father-son act of Greg and Joe Shetterly.  Greg and son Joe each flew high performance propeller aircraft in a death defying show of what looks like close-calls and near-misses, but which are really a highly choreographed maneuvers.  Later, the Thunderbirds called their show off early as bolts of lightning could be seen off to the west where more showers were brewing. Even with the rain and the adjusted show schedule, the happy smiles I saw made me understand that these folks get it;  it’s all part of the show and you never know what will happen at this now regional event.  

The show had a new feel to it with the new location and smaller size; a good feel.  You should definitely put this event on your calendar for next year.  I know that along with every other Amigo Airsho enthusiast, my wish is for the show to prosper in Santa Teresa for many more years to come!

Trouble Sleeping?? Try This!

by Dan & Patti Olivas


I have been a member of a gym for years, currently the gym I belong to is one of those low rate- come in and work out whenever you want to plan.

Recently one of my clients bought an office warehouse complex in El Paso, Texas and one of the tenants happened to be someone that I used to work out with several years ago.  She mentioned a new place “Fit 30” where she works out.   I went and checked it out.   It turned out to be a great find.

If you’re looking for a small gym where you always have a trainer helping, guiding and motivating you, check out Alan Cooksey’s Fit 30 located at 936 Sunland Park Dr. Suite 103 El Paso, Texas 79912. 915-845-3030.

I quickly found out that it didn’t matter what level of condition I was in, I could still do the workouts at my pace and quickly see so many benefits, I now sleep all night, (sleeping all night has made a huge difference in my daily life) my clothes fit better, my blood pressure went down, I’m dropping weight and my energy level is higher.

I strongly recommend that you do yourself a favor, call Alan today!  Then go check out his gym.   His workout program is only 30 minutes long and his pricing is very reasonable.

Buying a Resale home in El Paso, Texas

by Dan & Patti Olivas

Buying a resale home

Try to remember that it is not a new home!

After you have negotiated the sales price, you will have paid a nominal fee ($25-100) for the right to terminate the offer within a specified number of days.

During this time you will be doing your due diligence, such as a home and termite inspection and any other inspection you want to have done.

After you do the inspection,  then through your Agent,  you will negotiate for repairs with the seller. Sometimes it is better to just get a credit  at closing in lieu of repairs and get them done by people you know and trust unless it is a lender required repair and in that situation they would have to be done prior to closing.

Thinking of buying or selling a home in the El Paso Region? We want to represent you  through the whole process. Give us a call at Dan Olivas and Associates 915-584-5430
