keller williams realty boerne: New Year, New Beginnings - Get Organized Part 2 - 01/22/13 09:11 AM
After finishing my last blog about getting organized at home, I looked around the office and realized this place can be just as bad as at home with collected clutter over the years. So let's look at clearing the clutter and getting a "breathable" workspace. Just like when you clean out your closet, think about whether you’ve needed something within the last year. Make a “toss” pile, a “store” pile and a currently active “to-do” pile. If you have not touched it or have no idea what it is for or about, then chunk it. If it is something you (6 comments)

keller williams realty boerne: Jack Frost is in South Texas - 12/13/11 12:36 PM
Last week we had a couple of nights below freezing temperature here in the Texas Hill Country. And there was some scrambling around the house to get the pipes ready for the weather as well as some of our vacant listings. Taking the advice of a plumber here are things that we all need to do for those occasional freezes. Guess what his first statement was: "Preparation is the key!" Since we do live in South Texas & the Texas Hill Country and freezes are few and far between some of our pipes are more exposed. Plastic and copper pipe are both (2 comments)
keller williams realty boerne: Did you feel the "Brrrrrr" This Morning? - 11/29/11 03:09 PM
Well the heater is out in our office since yesterday and yes I live in South Texas and yes it was still in the 60's, but it was COLD!!!! And it is still COLD today. (FYI, part for heater has been ordered and should be fixed by tomorrow, but that's probably a different blog :) So as we are freezing in the office and out of the office hanging out at a septic inspection this morning, I decided that maybe it was time to find out some information on what to do to get our/your home ready for the winter.

"Inside/Outside" This Saturday a rare showing of Burmese art will open at SateFl!ght, the new South Presa project space operated by Southtown’s Fl!ght gallery. Curated by Callie Enlow, the exhibition “Inside/Outside” presents eight artists from Pansodan Gallery, one of very few contemporary art galleries in the Republic of Myanmar (also known as Burma). This is the first time that Pansodan Gallery, which has sent work by their artists to galleries in Australia and England, has exhibited in the U.S. Soe Naing’s abstract paintings and Eikaza Cho’s cartoon-like renderings contrast in style, but both pull inspiration from the nat pwe, the (0 comments)

keller williams realty boerne: Fannie Mae & Freddie Mac on the rise! - 10/04/11 01:07 PM
Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac are expected to increase their fees starting in 2012, which could impact homebuyers. Here's what I have found out so far: Will fees increase? Fannie Mae & Freddie Mac more than likely will be charging higher fees to the lenders for riskier loans or they may vary the fees based on where the home is being purchased (taking in to account the foreclosure rate in that area). This cost of course will be passed on to the buyer. Why is this happening? Since Fannie Mae & Freddie Mac were taken over by the government to keep (1 comments)

DOC SEVERINSEN AND THE SAN MIGUEL 5 Sunday, May 8th and Monday, May 9th at Boerne Champion High School at 7:30pm CUTLINE: Classical guitarist and composer Gil Gutiérrez is a virtuoso who consistently delivers energetic, electric performances. If it hadn't been for a fateful encounter five years ago, Gil and Doc would not have been performing together at Carnegie Hall earlier this year. "Compared to Severinsen, Gutiérrez is far less well known, but equally brilliant. Steeped in classical, Latin American and jazz traditions from an early age, he plays guitar as if he were born to it." - New York Examiner (2 comments)

keller williams realty boerne: Make Your Home an "After" - 01/05/11 04:19 PM
Thinking about selling, then think about staging. The Boehm Team offers a consultation with a starger as this as part of their listing packet. Homes that are lived in sometimes just need a little something to make them shine and appealing to a possible buyer. Occasionally a seller may be using a room for something other then its original purpose and the stager can bring it back to what it should be allowing the buyer to identify with the room. Also a home that is vacant sometimes needs a little something to help the buyer visualize themselves in the house. Our favorite stager, Sandra (1 comments)

Do you have a room in your home that seems small and you would like it to have a more spacious feel? Here are some tricks that can help you change the feel and look of the room. Make sure the room has plenty of light whether you are using natural light, fixtures and even paint can help with this.

Keeping the colors monochromatic on with the furniture and flooring will also help. Keeping the flooring light or neutral will help, but don't forget to look (1 comments)
