Mayfield Ranch in Round Rock Texas - 09/29/11 11:32 AM
Mayfield Ranch in Round Rock Texas - when my husband and I moved here several months ago I searched high and low for an area that we could call home. After driving around during the day, driving neighborhoods at night (got lost a couple of times, haha), researching homes on the internet, talking with people online - my husband I had narrowed it down to 2 houses in the Mayfield Ranch area and one in another city. Our families have asked what is it that you like about this particular area... so I hope you will find this helpful too. Good (0 comments)
Referral Network - A Complete Profile Might Just Get You The Listing! - 09/26/11 10:10 PM
I have been using the referral network here for quite some time. I find it gives you the best opportunity to find a good agent in the referral area. Here's what I look for: How many points you have - it's not the deciding factor, but if you don't ever blog and have very few points it gives me the idea that maybe you're not so tech savvy. Profile completed - if at the bottom of your information it says "tell something about yourself" or "this is the area you can insert testimonials", that just makes me think you are super (5 comments)
Getting a Pre-Approval Is POWER! - 09/26/11 10:28 AM
Ever question why when you contact a Realtor that they want to know if you are pre-approved? I have seen buyer's get somewhat miffed by the fact that we, as agents ask them to provide this before looking at homes. Their response is often "I just want to look at homes, I'm not buying right this second". In this day and age - if you are not really ready to buy - why are you not just searching these homes on the internet. When my husband and I relocated to the Austin area, I had in my mind that we would rent (4 comments)
147 Summer Place Circle, Pottsboro - 09/21/11 03:35 PM
147 Summer Place Circle, Pottsboro - what a fabulous buy! Distant lakeview of gorgeous Lake Texoma, walking trail that leads to the water's edge and in a gated, low maintenance community! On those days you don't feel like packing up and going to the lake - hang out by the pool - just one of the amenities Summer Cove offers. Inside this great home you'll find a very open living and kitchen downstairs with a half bath. Upstairs are 3 bedrooms, 2 full baths. 2 of the bedrooms have access to the 2nd floor deck that looks out toward the lake (2 comments)
Where Were You 9/11/01? - 09/11/11 05:36 PM
I can remember 9/11 as if it were just yesterday. I was 21 years old. Had been in real estate for a whole 2 weeks. Standing in the very first home I owned, watching the news from the bathroom as I got ready to go into work that day. I can remember specifically curling my hair, and from the corner of my eye I saw a plane crash into that first tower. Young and naive, I wasn't sure but I thought this really seems like something very bad happening in our country. The news tends to sensationalize things for ratings so (1 comments)
