Oh my, Oh me, Look who’s…..three?!! Scenes from a toddler party

Tweet A couple of nights ago, we had a birthday party for our younger daughter Abby, who had turned three earlier in the week.  One of the nice things when they are this age is that you can wait a few days to tell them that they’ve had a birthday.  When they are older, there’s…

Fairways of Blackhawk – Pflugerville Texas – Market Snapshot – 1st Quarter 2009

Tweet As a six-year resident of the Blackhawk area and a 13-year resident of Pflugerville, I like to keep an eye on the market values here in the area.  When the toll roads opened two years ago, the prices started trending upward and they have continued to appreciate overall, although more slowly right now, with…

Meadows of Blackhawk – Pflugerville, Texas – 1st Quarter Sales Report – 2009

Tweet As a resident of the Meadows of Blackhawk for over six years now, I like to keep an eye on the property values in the area.  Ever since the toll roads opened a couple of years ago, demand has remained reasonably strong despite a rocky real estate market in 2008.     Currently, there are…

“Guess what? I don’t care who agrees with you. You’re still wrong!”

Tweet Okay, so it’s true.  Sometimes, I like to write a good old-fashioned rant.  Now that I think of it, is anything really “old-fashioned” if it involves getting real-time feedback from all over the world after I write down my thoughts?  I suppose not.  But I digress… Earlier today, when I was returning home from…

I am writing TWO offers today! (Pssst! One of them even came from Localism)

Tweet Thankfully, this month has been a whirlwind activity with my buyer clients, and I also managed to get my last listing sold in the meantime (guess I need to get some more!).  Today, for the first time in (mumble mumble) months/years, I will be writing two offers, and I just had a closing two…

A Heart for Gabby Rose

Tweet I can’t think of too many topics that are more worthy of re-blogging than this one. Via Lara O’Keefe (Hunter’s Creek, Melissa) (DR Horton Homes): *** Please re-blog and help me get the word out there *** I recently connected will an old high school friend, Lara Lester Iezzi, who’s baby daughter is in…

Georgetown Texas PCA Church – Christ Presbyterian Church – UPDATE!

Tweet I have been posting about our church plant for several months now, and we continue to grow and move forward with our plans of launching our “official” Sunday morning services in September.  In the meantime, I am pleased to announce that we will be beginning our first public services on Sunday, April 19th.  This…

Pflugerville, Texas Land Development

Tweet I have lived in Pflugerville now for 14 years.  My wife and I bought our first home here in 1995, and our second, much larger home in late 2002 in the Blackhawk area.  Over the years, the landscape has changed far more dramatically than we could have anticipated.  Back then, I still remember my…

The Call I Never Could Have Expected

Tweet A few years ago, I was working with a client who was considering relocating to the Austin area from overseas (you will see afterwards why I am choosing not to disclose exactly where he was from).  It turned out later than he didn’t get the job, so the sale never occurred. We spent the…
