My Best Testimonial Yet Brian Rugg - Rugg Realty LLC Sun City Texas          This is to recommend the real estate services of Brian Rugg and Rugg Realty.   When we decided to move to Sun City, the smartest thing We did was to secure the services of Brian at Rugg Realty. From the first day, and first email to Brian we were treated to service that I didn't know existed anymore. Smart, informed, personable, and comes with a knowledge of Sun City that made our transition as easy and as pleasant as it can be.   Because of Brian's connections we were able to secure a temporary residence, while he found the ideal house. A house that was not listed MLS, A property for sale that he personally discovered in one of the best neighborhoods, and met our strict criteria. The house already had two offe...

    Sun City Texas gives Thumbs Up to BB’s Fried Turkey       One of the nice things about living in Sun city Texas is that there a lot of service industry folks close by to tackle almost any job one can think of. More on the breadth of service offered in later posts.  Today’s post is about Thanksgiving (yeah) and BB’s Home Cooking who whips up fried turkey dinners for all who want one.  I’m sure we have memories of spending hours in the kitchen (yes I cook too) preparing the family’s Thanksgiving dinner.  Whether at our home, or off to Grandma’s, preparation was extensive.  Now that we are in Sun City Texas, we let BB’s home cooking do the heavy lifting and prepare the meal.   x   BB’s is located on William’s Drive just a short distance from the Sun City entrance.  They have been in th...

    Would you use a Boston real estate agent to buy a home in Los Angles?     Would you use a Boston real estate agent to buy a home in Los Angles?  Ridiculous, right?  Would you use a Dallas real estate agent to help you find a home in Houston?  No way!  So, why on earth would you use an Austin TX agent to purchase a home in Sun City Texas? x   Austin is geographically close to Sun City Texas, located in Georgetown, TX, but we are worlds apart.  Sun City TX is a premier 55+ active adult community and the flagship of the Del Webb fleet.   Sun City has a strong Home Owner’s Association (HOA) that makes it highly desirable to many who want to call this home, but a turn off for a few.   The community standards in Sun City Texas are high and it takes a broker or an agent who know Sun City T...

As a born-again foodie (I was a very picky eater the first two decades of my life - got to that age in Texas without eating Mexican food OR BBQ!), I try a lot of restaurants, BBQ joints, dives, biergarten's, and other such sources of divine eats.  Each Friday, right here, I'll be sharing with you a treasure from my list of Must Eat findings.  Today, we'll be visiting The Hollow, on Austin Avenue on the downtown Square in Georgetown, just west of the Courthouse.        The Hollow is a French Brasserie with delicious food in an elegant setting.  I first experienced its delights when a fellow agent and I were looking for a quiet place to have lunch and do some planning for an upcoming event.  The Hollow was new in town, and it's just a block from our office (Danger, Will Robinson!), so we ...

As I told you all earlier, I recently changed brokers to Goldwasser Real Estate.  Goldwasser Real Estate opened a Georgetown, Texas, office, and on First Friday, August 2, we're having a Grand Opening (read:  PARTY!!!!!) to celebrate.  We're having the event in conjunction with First Friday, and we're located just a block from the Georgetown Square, so you can include visiting all the great shops and restaurants and listening to the live music as well as the food, music, and fun at Goldwasser Real Estate.  Details are below.  I hope to see you there - ALL of you!

As a true bibliophile (read: reading addict - I'll read the print on the back of a contact solutions bottle if there's nothing else around to read!), I'm obviously enamored of libraries.  And the Georgetown Public Library is high on my list of places to spend time.  Not only because of the books, both to check out and in their used bookstore, Second Hand Prose, not only because of the Red Poppy Cafe where pastries and coffee are available, not only because of the occasional live music events and other activities, but because of the art scattered throughout the building on a rotating basis.  I love art, too, and especially sculpture.  One of my delights is to arrive and, before I've even entered the building, see what new sculpture awaits me outside the entrance.  There are a couple of p...
