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.

I lost a listing in Rogers Ranch (not named after me, at least as far as I know) because I didn't succeed in making the owner see that his house would not sell for what he wanted. At least, that was my understanding. I was referred to him by a friend, so I thought he would be open to my advice. H...

Now is your chance to buy a home in the quiet neighborhood of Royal Oaks Acres in Cibolo. Never heard of it?

Mid-century modern is all the rage in San Antonio, and this custom rancher is a perfect example of the genre. The tile in the kitchen and bathrooms is in pristine condition. Other parts of the home have been lovingly updated, while still preserving its style. It's located in the friendly and char...

My clients had been making plans to build their dream home on this beautiful lot in Terra Mont in northwest San Antonio, after interviewing several custom builders. Then they got a job offer they couldn't refuse and decided to stay put, so the lot is for sale. A tree and topo survey was done (and...
