I have this thing about stars. You know, the 5 pointed kind. I'm not sure how long ago it all started, but I remember when I was in 6th grade, I purposely took on the nickname of Star and my friends called me that by name for awhile. I don't go by the name Star these days but I do like stars. I have lots of star decorations around my home and in my yard. I have a favorite sterling silver star necklace and star bracelet I wear more than any other piece of jewelry I own. I even have (11 comments)
Spring is such an enjoyable time of year here in the Austin area. Everything outdoors is coming alive and the fresh scent of spring is in the air. Today I was watching a few birds in my yard getting their new homes ready for nesting . They were busy carrying twigs and found materials, meticulously placing them just right to make their perfect little home so they can lay eggs for the next generation. Spring is also a time of year when many homeowner's are wanting to sell. It's not always so easy doing all the right things in preparation (6 comments)

Texas Longhorn Make Home in Round Rock - 03/06/10 09:58 AM
Driving through Round Rock today, I pulled off the IH35 frontage road and took this photo. This beautiful Texas Longhorn trophy steer is one of a few who live on the front lawn of the Westinghouse Electric Corporation Plant. The plant is located on the IH35 southbound frontage road between Westinghouse Rd and University Blvd. Curious what played the part in the Longhorns living here, I did a little research and learned that when Westinghouse moved to the location, they thought about building a dancing water fountain with lights on the lawn to draw attention to the plant. Instead, they decided (2 comments)
Recently I read a blog post from one of our fellow active rain members who was asking for views on value - or lack of value - of designations. He went on to ask if anyone has actually gained a client because of a designation. Today I have a testimpny I'd like to share. I do have the CRS,GRI,ABR designations I've earned over the years. I'm not bragging. For me, it was simply a personal and professional decision to enhance my knowledge as a real estate professional and add value for my clients. On with my testimony... This past Monday (9 comments)
