SAN ANTONIO COWBOY BREAKFAST - January 28th, 2011 - 01/27/11 03:17 PM
Well, relocating to San Antonio has its privileges. One is the San Antonio Livestock and Rodeo Cowboy Breakfast. Another is the low cost of living and great home prices. Christian Realty San Antonio would love to help you when you come on down to San Antonio, Texas to live. Boy howdy, San Antonio does put on a good rodeo each and every year. The cowboy breakfast is just another taste of the rodeo and a tradition now since 1979, the past 32 years have been a great event to help kick off the festivities.
MILITARY RELOCATIONS: SAN ANTONIO, TEXAS - 01/22/11 08:00 PM

You and your family will enjoy your tour in the Alamo City even more if you take the time to choose your new home with the advice of a local expert. Please visit (0 comments)
EARLY MORTGAGE PAYOFF PENALTY PITFALL - 01/18/11 03:26 PM
Oh my! A comissionectomy!! Ouch!!!!!!!!!! Well, it has not happened to me however my information is it has happened to others.

Too valuable to forget to do. This may be the make or break point even before you have the (2 comments)
BEAT THE DRUM SLOWLY - 01/17/11 10:58 AM
Watching some of my fellow real estate professionals ply their trade brings a smile to my face. They rush around, trying each and every new device and gimmick they hear or see. To what end? While social networking seems to be the best, new technique to get the word out about your real estate business, some of the older marketing techniques still work too. My thoughts have always been to be the Tortoise rather than the Hare. Hence the title of this piece, "Beat the Drum Slowly." Too many jump out of the chute at a breakneck speed (3 comments)
2011 - EVOLVE OR BECOME EXTINCT IN REAL ESTATE - 01/05/11 10:40 AM
Happy New Year!! 2011 is here and we welcome the new beginning. Are you ready for a new year? Have you dusted off your 2010 business plan and updated it for 2011? Or are you a cave man (person), destined to become extinct? My memory is clear of my former career when folks did the same old, same old, year in and year out. They did not go too far and were used as a bad example. The same can be said in this career of real estate. We are all familiar with the cave man and the dinosaurs of ages past. (2 comments)
