This blog is about the Austin real estate market, along with tips for agents and other funny stuff that I deem fit to include.



As an eight-year resident of the Blackhawk area and a 16-year resident of Pflugerville, I like to keep an eye on the market values here in our neighborhood.  When the toll roads first opened in the fall of 2006, the prices started trending upward, then they flattened out somewhat, with some tough...
One of the better and more interesting books I've read in recent years was "Everything Bad is Good for You" by Steven Johnson.  This past week, I finished reading another of Johnson's works, "Mind Wide Open: Your Brain and the Neuroscience of Everyday Life".  When I was younger, I had a handful o...
Ever since November, we've been busier at our company than we have been in years.  November was my best sales/income month since 2007, and it appears as though February will be even better. I'm hopeful that the market in Austin will continue its upward trend this year (and beyond).  Typically, we...
Last year, I blogged about this topic with solid results.  I hope to do so again.  If so, I can help out a good cause and my daughter at the same time.   If you live in the general Austin area, let me know if you would like to buy some Girl Scout Cookies.  My 9-year-old daughter Aleah is selling...
Having lived in the Austin area since 1988, I'm not surprised when I see our city making national "most desirable" or "best" lists, and a recent list from is no exception.  On the list entitled, "10 Best Places to Buy a Home", Austin placed at #1 overall, garnering "Best All-Around ...
I've received this question many times from buyer clients that I'm helping, most recently in an email, so I thought it would be a good idea to cover this in a post. Whenever I write up an offer for a home, there are dozens of questions that come up during the process before we even submit the pap...
Tomorrow, I hope you can join us live and in the chat room for Social Media Edge Radio (because the cool kids are always in the chat room!). Tuesday, January 25, at noon Eastern, we have the pleasure of speaking with one of the cream of the crop in Social Media Marketing. We're also making a spec...
I just finished writing an offer for a client of mine who first found my blog here in 2008.  We hit it off back then, and he and his family almost bought a home with a local builder, but the builder was a headache to deal with and didn't keep their word.  Since then, he has continued to look at l...
As part of my 2011 effort to read at least one book per week on average, I finished another book yesterday, "Guerrilla Social Media Marketing" by Jay Conrad Levinson and Shane Gibson.  Shane Gibson has actually been a guest twice on Social Media Edge, our BlogTalkRadio show, and he is also the co...
We had an interesting exchange with one of our clients today that I wanted to share here, partially because it's somewhat instructional and partly because it made me laugh. We wrote offers yesterday for two duplexes for a cash buyer (investor) who is a past client of ours.  Today, one of them was...
