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.



The Schertz-Cibolo real estate market has fared pretty well during the economic downturn, even better than the rest of San Antonio. Homes continue to sell, including new home inventories. Nearby employers include Randolph AFB, located in nearby Universal City, and Fort Sam Houston and Brooke Army...
It's not officially spring yet, but there are already some signs of life, so I got my camera out and toured the garden to see what was blooming. Then I made a show out of some of the blossoms in my garden. Some are from trees, such as the peach and gorgeously fragrant mountain laurel. Some flower...
Isn't she a beauty? I quickly snapped off four photos of her as she paused on my deck to eye me, but this is the only one that turned out.

I ran across this listing while hunting for a home one of my clients might want to buy and remodel. She has done an excellent job with her other projects, what I call slow flips, and is ready to start on another one. First I check out the obvious foreclosures and distress properties, but there is...
I got a new camera for Christmas, and it has made taking macro shots a lot easier. I can't make butterflies sit still, so I have to take 10 shots for every usable one (see the previous blog post), but things that don't move around too much are easy. This winter was so cold in south Texas that man...
The first gulf fritillary of spring appeared in my organic garden yesterday! This species of butterfly prefers to lay eggs on passionflower vines, which are already popping up despite the freakishly cold weather we had this winter. I followed this one around for a while, but she didn't settle on ...
Woods of Shavano is such a nice neighborhood on the northwest area of San Antonio. It's close to shopping, places of worship, movie theaters, bakeries, and restaurants like Cool Cafe, one of my favorites! It is in a convenient, yet quiet, location near Shavano Park and south of Loop 1604. The nei...
