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 loved the Stone Canyon neighborhood for years, having assisted a solid number of buyers and sellers in the area.  We used to have some good friends in this subdivision, and I always enjoyed getting a chance to visit the area parks and trails with our kids.  Located just off of Highway 620...
I have lived near Forest Creek since 1995, and I have sold countless homes in this neighborhood.  Well, maybe not countless, but enough that I know what I am doing there and to know that it has great value.  With a challenging and immaculate golf course, it is no mystery why it remains a popular...
As part of our plans for 2014 and beyond, I'm looking to expand our team further as we begin a new year. I figured it never hurts to spread the word via any means available to me.  With that in mind, I thought it might be a good idea to let my ActiveRain friends know that I am in recruiting mode ...

We would lo...
Having lived in the Blackhawk subdivision since 2002, I've seen a lot of changes here, and I try to keep a close eye on the prices and offerings. The Pflugerville area seems to be growing in this direction more and more, with two major toll roads intersecting within half a mile of our neighborhoo...
At Austin Texas Homes, we work with a lot of buyers who are relocating from other parts of the state and from out-of-state as well. With the sometimes extreme summer heat here, many of our buyers want to find homes with pools.  Round Rock is a popular destination for families, boasting terrific s...
As of this month, I have been selling homes full-time here in Austin, Texas for 17 years. I've sold hundreds of homes, both as a listing agent and as a buyer's agent. There are times when I have shown 12-15 homes in a single day, sometimes for several days in a row. On those days, I am swamped wi...
Truthfully, the title of this post is good advice by itself, but I wanted to take a minute to explain some common mistakes I've seen sellers make.
