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.

It's also in commuting distance to...

It's now overcast in the morning and then sunny and warm in the afternoon, just the way it's supposed to be. On February 3 and 4, there were more th...
I work with both home buyers and sellers, and I look at a whole lot of houses. I try to keep up with decorating trends in various neighborhoods and price ranges, too, since a couple of my clients are involved in remodeling homes for resale. One trend that is starting to fade away, at least in San...
Dear caller: If you have a California phone number, I will now let your call go through to my voicemail. But you won't leave a message, because you work for Zillow, or Trulia, or Google, or a website company, or a leads company, or a web-clicks company, or worse yet:! I distinc...
No matter how long you've been in the business of selling real estate, I think you should always be willing to learn new things. I think I might be getting a little set in my ways. I've tried these various approaches over the years, but I'm not 100% satisfied with the results, so I welcome your f...
