This blog is about the Austin real estate market, along with tips for agents and other funny stuff that I deem fit to include.
I have a few thoughts to share in the wake of the death of Justice Antonin Scalia. Some are about the man himself, some are political, and the remainder are about friendship in general.I hope you find some value here.I don't think you will see this exact perspective elsewhere.First and foremost, ...
One of my absolute favorite real estate friends passed away yesterday morning.  To put it mildly, Liz Carter was a force in our industry, and I was privileged to get to know her starting in 2007, when we became friends through our interactions right here on AR.  She attended my birthday party a f...
I just listed a great house in Falcon Pointe here in Pflugerville.18728 Derby Hill is priced competitively at $266,900, and the seller is motivated to get it sold quickly.        4 bedrooms (master bedroom is downstairs, and the others are up) 2.5 bathrooms 2384 square feet per tax records Built ...
I rarely seem to find the time or inspiration to blog much these days, although it's not from a lack of desire. I simply have a hectic life right now, with four kids (two teenagers, two "little" kids), a ministry, church stuff, and, oh yeah, I have a brokerage to run and buyer and seller clients ...

I will admit that I was surprised to see this news, but it was a pleasant surprise, unlike the jarring news when Trulia first acquired AR a while back. I started on AR back in 2006-07, which some here would ...
Well, I won't lie. I could have reached this milestone years ago if I had remained consistent with my blogging and commenting, but I'm happy to report finally reached the 1,000,000 point threshold with this post.   I have been saying for awhile that I intend to blog more, but my business, family,...
I recognize that it's sometimes fun or even fashionable to pick on the real estate industry if you're an outsider. You know next to nothing about what our lives are like, or the struggles we deal with every day, yet you want to claim that we're greedy, or dishonest, or both. Grow up. In late Janu...
Austin has long been touted as an eclectic city of weirdos, where art and music interconnect, and where life is different every day. However, many have decried the city's "weird" reputation as being centered only in the downtown and south areas. This is not the case. There are a lot of great and ...
Construction cranes are often an indicator of a city undergowing a growth spurt. Last weekend in downtown Austin, TWELVE construction cranes were visibly in use in the 11-block area between 12th Street and Cesar Chavez.    As Austin continues its explosive growth pattern from the past couple of y...
