In today's Dallas City council meeting it was proposed to have your dog or cat spade or neutered. In recent years there have been lots and lots of dogs and cats rooming the streets and starving to death. They do what they can to survive but some don't make it.

Lake Highlands in Dallas is really a wonderful place to live.  Because I have spent the majority of my life living in large Victorian homes, moving into a neighborhood that has houses that are primarily 25 to 30 years old is a new experience for me.  But I'm growing to like it very much.  Pretty ...

Why are Buyers still settling for substandard services when they don't have to?  I'm all about educating and letting people know how things could and should be done.  I got a lead in on my website a couple of days ago.  He marked that he already had a realtor, so I sent back a message asking what...

I couldn't believe my ears.  Barbara Corcoran, The Today Show real estate expert, is talking in general terms again and it is so frustrating.  She went on "national" tv and told people they needed to list their homes at 10-15% below their values in order to sell the homes fast.  WHAT?!!
