  Rugg Realty LLC, Now 3rd Largest Real Estate Broker in Sun City Texas I was crunching some numbers last week and stumbled on a statistic I hadn’t really been following.  Rugg Realty LLC, is now the 3rd largest real estate broker in Sun City Texas!  This is special since we opened up shop just a little more than four years ago.  The reason I say were weren’t following this, is that our focus has always been on being the best real estate broker in Sun City Texas, and knew that market share would take care of itself.  Apparently, our clients have agreed and we thank them.   Way back in July of 2010, I wrote one of my very first blog posts titled, "What would you do if you had to start over in real estate this morning?"  and Active Featured that post.  I received a lot of advice from Acti...

  Lake Cowan Now Complete In Sun City Texas   What started life as a fishing pond with all the simulated places for fish to thrive is back in operation.  It took several attempts to keep the pond from leaking, but this time they got it right.   This is one of the most engineered ponds ever, with a layer of Bentonite clay, layer of sand, a full pond liner, and a concrete retaining wall around the perimeter to stabilize it all.     Even with Storm clouds on the horizon, Lake Cowan is a great place with long-range vistas adding beauty to Sun City Texas and the surrounding real estate.                                                                                        If you ever wondered about living in Sun City Texas and want to know more about homes for sale in Sun City Texas and the ...

Home owners who fancy gardening will find many like-minded souls in the Sun City Texas community.  Yards are landscaped according to owner preferences. Driving about our community you’ll see yards as varied as the people who move here.  Lushly tropical to desert motif. Sun City Texas has a long time reputation for being well planted and well maintained.  Growing wild is OK, just not going crazy, as all landscape plans must be approved.With encouragement from the community association, more home owners are reducing grass and adding eye pleasing meandering borders and “streams” of rock in landscaping. Native Texas plants are favored because they look good and reduce maintenance and water use.  The Rugg household just underwent such a transformation and we eager to post some photos in part...

That’s the good news for owners, and bad new for buyer. Less inventory drives higher prices and fewer days on the market.  When resale homes aren't available many buyers look at new homes from Del Webb and that's a good thing since Rugg Realy helps buyers purchase both new homes and re-sale homes  in Sun City Texas. Every buyer is unique, yet there are many reasons people are curious about Sun City Texas, and want to learn more. The best  way to accomplish that is by contacting Rugg Realty located in Sun City Texas and speaking with the owner Brian Rugg, or one of our knowledgable agents.   Our way of life is outstanding. The setting is green and peaceful, nourishing for the spirit. Natural areas meander throughout neighborhoods. Last year I observed a doe and two fawns from late Spring...
