This blog is to help educate Buyers, Sellers and even other Realtors across the country. Each market is different and the way Real Estate is done is different.

Some times there will be other things besides real estate as I like to rant and rave as much as the next!! Come back often!

I became the 18th person to hit 1,000,000 points.  I should have hit a million several months ago, but being pregnant last year, and then having the baby this year, I slacked in...

The Austin Water Utility is asking for home owners with St. Augustine grass to let their yards die and replace it with an option that takes less watering, like Bermuda or Buffalo Grass, especially in times of droughts.

The wildfires throughout Central Texas, and all of Texas for that matter, have been horrendous this year.  Fire after fire, and many in very unsuspecting places like in the middle of master planned communities.  To raise money for the victims of the Central Texas wildfires, the Frank Erwin Center...
