This blog is about the Austin real estate market, along with tips for agents and other funny stuff that I deem fit to include.
Years ago, I received a call from a guy who wanted to have us come take a look at his house on the north shore of Lake Travis. He asked us to meet him on the SOUTH shore of Lake Travis. After we found him and chatted for a bit, he took us on his boat (at around 50 mph, if memory serves) across th...
Yesterday was a whirlwind for me. A couple of weeks ago, I attended the Xplode conference in Houston, where founder Matt Fagioli took the time to mention our ministry (Luke 6 Ministries) and to match funds raised that day, resulting in about $1100 to help the homeless and needy families we serve....
I've written over 1200 posts here on ActiveRain. Yesterday, I spotted a featured post by Lisa Delzompo asking which posts made sellers pick up the phone and call. I didn't have a spectacular answer for that specific question, but I do have some posts that have garnered a lot of attention and expo...
This last month, I celebrated 17 years of selling homes full-time in Austin. Well, I didn't really celebrate offiically, but I passed a milestone nonetheless. During my career, I have worked directly with hundreds of clients, and I've trained and counseled agents on their transactions as well.  I...
I wanted to write this post to recognize the solid good service I've received from Carl's Heating and Air, based out of Pflugerville, Texas. I've had Carl out to my house three times this year. Obviously, I would prefer not to require his services at all, since it means our A/C broke (late summer...
A friend of mine first introduced me to Pita Fusion a couple of years ago. Since then, it has become our default place to meet whenever I have lunch with him. I've also taken many other friends and clients there to eat since then. In a nutshell, Pita Fusion is a great destination if you're lookin...
Not too long ago, I had a great experience at Floyd's 99 Barbershop at their Arbor Walk location near the Arboretum. While driving home from my nearby office one evening recently, I decided to check my phone at the stop light to see if I could find a haircut place that was still open. It turns ou...
Considering the fact that I haven't attended a conference of any kind since around 2010, I am stoked to be attending Xplode Houston in a few days. I am going to see a few of my ActiveRain friends there, including Greg Nino, Marilyn Boudreaux, and Sherry Scales. If you're able to make it, or even ...
After reading a post earlier today, I felt compelled to present another side to the scenario cited therein. Since I don't have the author's permission, I won't link to the post here. To be clear, I didn't seek permission from that blogger (i.e. I wasn't specifically turned down) - I just want to ...
    Sonoma is a terrific neighborhood located in east Round Rock, just off Gattis School Road.  With two theme pools, two lakes, and a playground area, Sonoma is also located adjacent to the Round Rock hike-and-bike trail system.  It was awarded the prestigious MAX Award for "Best Overall Communi...
