Have you been ghosted by a buyer or seller?
Ghosting is an interesting phenomenon that is occurring in dating relationships. It’s the ultimate silent treatment when a relationship is being severed. One party completely cuts off all contact and ignores the former partner’s attempts to reach out.
It’s the easy way out when one party decides the relationship isn’t working for them. The total rejection can be devastating especially if the other party had no clue there was a problem. Why would someone choose to banish another from their existence?  For one it’s because they think it is easier than dealing with … (57 comments)

Sold In Cypress Springs~705 Canyon Springs Cedar Park TX 78613
My referral buyers, coming via a previous client, knew exactly where they wanted to live. I met with them, went over the home buying process and set them up with an automated alert from the MLS for homes in their search criteria. It took longer than expected but when the right property hit the market they made a decision to make an offer on the home of their dreams.
I am very pleased they had the patience to wait until the right property for their needs came available. I am thankful for their business … (17 comments)

Canyon Creek, NW Austin TX ~ Why I love living here!
I moved to NW Austin the week-end of the famous Memorial Day floods in 1981…a memorable way to be welcomed!
NW Austin at the time was just coming alive with building expansion projects on the drawing board and goods and services anticipated to be under construction soon. The schools were highly rated and that was my first concern for my two children.
In 1990 I found myself a single mom and obtained my real estate license and entered the fray of the real estate world! By 1994 I met my Geno and … (26 comments)

Geno and I were hungry for seafood and enjoy the excellent food and service at Eddie V’s in the Arboretum. I prefer a Chardonnay and Geno red but we decided to take a taste test of various Pinot Noirs. It was fun to explore possibilities of something fresh which could satisfy both our taste buds.   
We settled on Meiomi and so glad we did! The name means “coast” and it is a California wine from the Caymus Vineyards. It is a combination of Pinor Noir and Chardonnay...not a traditional blend! It offers an exciting chemistry of berry, oak, earth and spice … (18 comments)

I saw my first Top Out…at least that I remember. What is a Top Out? It’s not topping off when you fill your gas tank or topping off your glass with the last drop from a good bottle of wine! 
It’s a term relative to construction of buildings. I stopped and took this picture off Hwy 183N in Austin TX where more cranes are sprouting with new construction projects. This tree standing tall on top of the building is not because someone thinks it looks atheistically pleasing. It’s there because the builder upholds the tradition when the last beam (or its … (36 comments)
