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

We've been in our home since late 2002, and we've lived with off-white walls throughout, until now.  Partially because it was starting to look beat up (kids can do that) and partially because we were simply tired of the lack of color, we decided to just move forward and pick out some colors and h...

This is something that never ceases to irritate me, despite the fact that I should probably be immune to it by now. The word "REALTOR" has two syllables, not three.  I realize the confusion, since it's spelled "Realtor", yet pronounced "Realtor".  Sorry to be sarcastic here.   It's not pronounced...

The second book I finished this year as part of my personal "book a week" challenge was "Predictably Irrational" by Dan Ariely.  I'm also happy to report that our new initiative seems to have seriously motivated my 12-year-old son, who finished a 400-page book in two days.  :) Despite the fact th...

I used to mention our weekly podcast Social Media Edge more often on my blog, then we built up a good-sized audience (many of whom listen to our archived recording, rather than the "live" broadcast) and I sort of stopped promoting it as much.  I need to remedy that. Our BlogTalkRadio show has bee...

One of my Facebook friends mentioned the other day that she has kept track of every book she's read since she was 13 years old.  She's close to my age (maybe a bit younger), so this struck me as an amazing feat, especially considering the year she probably started and the technology available bac...

Last year, I was contacted by Chevy/GM around the time that SXSW was in Austin.  They offered to give me two VIP stageside tickets to see Cheap Trick play here in town.  It turned out to be one of the best and most memorable concerts that my wife and I have seen. This month, they asked if I would...

Yesterday, I talked about how people sometimes misunderstand the nature of certain websites.  Facebook and Google are sort of like apples and oranges: there is no way to directly compare them.  Now, it seems some people are even willing to blame Facebook for the downturn in the economy.  Sounds f...

Sorry for the dramatic headline, but I figured it might not hurt to use the same tactic that I’ve seen others employ with regard to my email inbox. I guess I’m just getting a bit tired of hearing self-proclaimed gurus and experts say things like, “SEO is dead” or “Facebook KO’s Google” or anythin...

One of the newer shows that has captured my attention this past year is "Undercover Boss", which airs on CBS Sunday nights at 9 Eastern.  The premise is simple: CEO's and company Presidents go undercover as potential employees at their own companies.  They work in starter jobs in various location...

Earlier today, my friend Sally Cheeseman shared a photo of her father that looked like it was probably taken in the 1940′s. I showed my wife, and we talked about what a cool picture it was.  It made him look like a bomber pilot, maybe one from an old war movie. Then, I reflected on the fact that...
