This blog is about the Austin real estate market, along with tips for agents and other funny stuff that I deem fit to include.
Last week, I reviewed EZ's on Lamar.  This week, I focus on Waterloo Ice House.  Well, actually my wife decided to write this review for me.  My wife and kids visited two of the six locations, 1106 W. 38th St. and 8600 Burnet Rd.  She helped me write this review, so that you could know whether it...
As most people know, there are plenty of good reasons to move to Austin, Texas.   Incredible live music? Check. Burgeoning film scene? Check. Hip and happening culture? Done. Another good reason you may not already be aware of is our awesome job market.  Austin is swiftly securing its spot among ...
  In case you aren't familiar with the concept of neoteny that I mentioned in the title above, this basically means that babies and small children have cuter faces (big eyes, chubby cheeks, etc.).  This comes in handy when approaching the "terrible twos", as my daughter is now, since neoteny trig...
Austin was named #1 on the list of "Best Cities for Relocating Families" last year by Worldwide ERC and Primacy Relocation, and with good reason.  There is so much fun stuff for families to do here.  With thanks to my beautiful wife, who helped me compile this list, I wanted to give some examples...
In 2007 I wrote the blog post "Family Fun in Austin, Texas" and since it has been awhile, I thought I would revisit the topic. Austin certainly has no shortage of family fun options, many of which have opened since I first wrote the original post on this topic. So, without further ado, here are s...
I am feeling ambitious, apparently. PLEASE consider re-blogging and/or donating if you're able. We just launched one of our most ambitious and exciting fundraisers, because it affects so many people's lives so directly. We have become friends with four families totaling 18 people, who all are ver...
We have been blessed to be able to help several new families recently, and I see a lot of potential with each of them. As a result, however, we are very low now on ministry funds, but the needs don't take a break, obviously.To give you a sense of the folks we're currently assisting, here is a qui...
Summertime in Texas does not follow the solstice. As soon as the weather hits about 85 degrees and the rain abates, we consider it to be summer. In Austin, that usually means it's time to hit the trails or one of our local lakes and soak up some vitamin D. There is certainly no shortage of either...
On Saturday, my business partner wrote a cash offer for a home in south Austin. It was an older house, priced at $144,900 for less than 1000 square feet.Our client offered $155,400 cash and we didn't get it. Apparently, they received at least 18 offers. The market here is absolutely insane. The A...
Austin has been anything but low-profile in the past few years, garnering attention for our music festivals and our tech scene, among other claims to fame. Lately, however, Austin is getting a reputation as a "foodie" destination. Austin eateries have been featured on such shows as "Man Vs. Food"...
