This blog is about the Austin real estate market, along with tips for agents and other funny stuff that I deem fit to include.
According to a recent survey/study by, Austin is the #1 best spot in the country to retire or to spend the winter away from other, colder locales. Frankly, after reading the article about this, I wondered about the fact that they didn't include sales or home prices as part of this ...
I am blessed to be working in one of the most vibrant real estate markets in the country, and I have what I consider to be a wealth of experience in residential sales (almost 17 years now), training agents (10 years or so), and management in general (21 years). We take good care of our clients. W...
Texas has had a reputation for years for creating tons of jobs, far outpacing other parts of the country. Austin, Texas was named #1 out of 102 cities tracked in a Business Journal study in October. Austin has again landed on top of a report measuring economic factors, which has almost become com...
Grand Mesa at Crystal Falls is a beautiful gated community in Leander. Most of the listings are located on at least an acre of land, and many offer privacy and/or views.  I have a current listing on almost 2 acres that back to a large treed area and feels like a much larger piece of land.

They have done a marvelous job of setting expectations with buyers, sellers, and they've motivated prospective agents as well. On the flip side, I recognize ...
When I joined ActiveRain in December of 2006, the membership here was much smaller. I didn't even know how to use this platform for business in any way. I posted once, then promptly stayed away for about 7 months, when I decided to give it another look after hearing about AR via a webmaster forum...
Last September, during my involvement with Restore a Voice, my wife and I met and befriended Jes Richardson, which ended up making a huge impact on us both. Jes is a survivor of childhood sexual abuse, sex trafficking and unimaginable grief from the loss of her parents, family, and many friends t...
Quick bit of background info: A few months ago, we managed to raise enough money, mostly via online sources, to purchase a mobile home for a homeless family we were helping. They moved in to their new place February 1st, and they've been financially self-sufficient ever since. We still see them r...
I have a good friend who recently asked me if I often have to scan documents and send PDF files. The answer, of course, is yes. As a real estate broker, I probably scan 10-20 documents in an average, "busy" week. I have a scanner at home, but it's not ultra-fast. At the office, I typically fax st...
