This blog is about the Austin real estate market, along with tips for agents and other funny stuff that I deem fit to include.
In the past, those of you who read my blog have all been very attentive and considerate when I've posted about people who were suffering or in need.  I hope to impress on you today how urgently your prayers and/or support are needed in this case... For as long as I can remember, I've been sensiti...
I lost two more friends to cancer recently. One of them was a hilarious girl I knew in college. She was 42 years old, and she had a phenomenally good attitude about her illness. The other was a friend I made originally on Twitter, then through a number of phone calls. She was also a guest on my r...
{EAV_BLOG_VER:3c985299505158e3} Today was a pretty long day, frankly. All morning, I watched my four kiddos while my wife ran some errands. At noon, we went to McKinney Falls State Park (about 30 minutes from our house) to meet some friends from my 10-year-old daughter's girl scout troop. Despite...
I've been blessed to be the co-host on Social Media Edge for 2.5 years now. Here's Ken Cook's post explaining what our show/podcast is all about. Join us if you can! It has come to my attention that Social Media Edge has had only about 100,000 listeners because it is not widely understood what it...
Rumors of my death have been greatly exaggerated. Okay, fine, so no one actually thought I had died. Either way, I haven't been blogging much lately. I have a good reason, though, I promise: I've been selling homes. In fact, I've been selling a LOT of homes. This is the busiest I can remember bei...
I don't have a lot of details to share at this point, but my good friend and fellow ActiveRain member Clint Miller is in an ICU right now fighting for his life against cancer.  His wife tweeted about this earlier tonight from his account.  Based on information I received today, Clint was diagnose...
I hate to say this, but I guess I've grown accustomed to mediocrity in our business.  Below average is often the norm.  It seems like most tranactions that I've handled over the past year or two have been with agents that seem less-than-interested in making a good impression, or even in making th...
A couple of years ago, I wrote a post called "How to Get Over 100 Comments on Your Blog Posts - A Retrospective".  It was featured, and it received a lot of attention, then it was hijacked by my friends, and it ended up getting over 3,000 comments.  At some point, it wouldn't load anymore, which ...
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...
