Realtor to give spicy peanuts, $1,000 credits at salsa event


Local Real estate agent to give out $100,000 in certificates and goodies at Maricopa Salsa Night Saturday, Sept 25., from 6 to 10 p.m.

Local HomeSmart Success real estate agent Brian Petersheim has teamed up once again with InMaricopa at Salsa night to find out how much heat Maricopans can handle. Last spring, it was the “Paqui One Chip Challenge.” On Saturday, it will be the “Death Nut Challenge.”

The nuts in this challenge claim to be the world’s spiciest peanuts. The taste-testers this year said the peanuts are “waaaaayyy hotter” than last year’s One Chip Challenge. The peanuts come in five levels of heat and, so far, no one has gotten past the first level.

In addition to the Death Challenge, Brian Petersheim will be at the booth giving away 101 certificates good toward a $1,000 credit at closing when they use Brian Petersheim as their agent to buy or sell a home, including new builds.

“I wanted to give out something of value, and who can’t use an extra $1,000 when they are buying or selling a home?” said Petersheim. “The $1,000 can be used in many different ways. The most common use would be toward closing costs, price reduction or maybe a home warranty if needed. The best part is the credit is done after everything has been negotiated in the sale, so it is truly an extra $1,000! Also, the certificate is good for five years, so even people who are not quite ready to pull the trigger on buying or selling a home should stop by and grab one. ”

The reason for the odd-sounding number of $101,000 is because last year Petersheim gave out $100,000 in certificates.

“Much like the spicy challenge this year,” Petersheim said, “I wanted to take it up a notch!”

Anybody can come by to get a certificate and/or attempt the Death Nut Challenge at the InMaricopa/Homesmart booth. So be sure to stop by, grab your certificate and take your chance at the Death Nut Challenge.
