Real Estate Broker/Owner - Robin Rogers, Silverbridge Realty, San Antonio, Texas - 398351
Real estate in the San Antonio metro area, the foothills of the Texas Hill Country, and on the Guadalupe River. My market area includes the northern half of San Antonio (Alamo Heights, Fort Sam Houston, Shavano Park, Hollywood Park, and Stone Oak) and northeast (Randolph AFB, Universal City, Windcrest, Schertz, and Cibolo) to New Braunfels, Seguin, and Canyon Lake, including Bexar, Guadalupe, and Comal Counties. My blog also covers photography; houses and homes; investments and rental properties; pets and wildlife; birds, butterflies, and flowers in my organic garden; travel; fun stuff; and whatever else takes my fancy.



Kitty wasn't very happy when Miles came to live with us three years ago. But they have become pretty good buddies since then. Their grooming sessions still often turn into squabbling and kicking sessions, but they have settled into a routine and are even learning from each other. She is getting ...
After our last batch of tenants moved out, I decided it was time to sell this rental house and simplify my life a little. It was our first home when my husband and I moved back to San Antonio, and it became our first rental property when we found a better home for our needs. It's in Oak Hills Ter...
This intriguing insect is a little larger than the average honeybee we see in our garden. It hovers like a bee and is attracted to the same plants as the honeybees are. However, it isn't particularly fuzzy, and it is speckled gray and white. What is it? This is the only one I have ever seen.
This swallowtail butterfly is looking for someplace to lay her eggs. Swallowtails love parsley. It is one of their favorite plants for hosting their eggs. When they hatch, the swallowtail caterpillars will fatten up on the parsley leaves. They still leave plenty for my husband to use when he's c...

A happy, professional Muggle can make everything go like magic. Even if you haven't taken any of the Hogwarts MCE courses, you'll still learn something f...
I love these remodeled homes in older, closer-in neighborhoods like Windcrest. You have the advantage of being in an established, convenient neighborhood close to amenities, plus an updated home to add to your comfort. The sellers did a great job updating this home and enhancing the landscaping. ...
Up until yesterday, I thought there were only two streets in San Antonio on which I'd sold more than one home. But as I was going through my spreadsheet and updating my sales data from last week's closings, I realized that I had another street to add to my list. I had just sold a nice rental home...
A month ago, I received this message via ActiveRain: My family and I saw one in New York City and your photos helped us identify the humming bird moth. Thanks and You are right, those guys are QUICK!!!!! I can e-mail you my photographs if you want. My new correspondent sent me this message yester...
Workforce Solutions Alamo conducted a study, reported in the San Antonio Business Journal recently, showing the need for more skilled people to fill jobs in 33 categories. Five of these growing occupations are considered "green."Here is the link to the article. (I noticed that one of the jobs is ...
It has been a very busy month for me, and I have neglected my AR blog while making the proverbial hay. Now I'm going to play catch-up and just offer a stream of consciousness post for my loyal readers. You'll be rewarded with a photo at the end. I am not going to be Twittering. I don't even make ...
