Affordable condos Austin - 1st time home buyers get discounts larger than from a short sale or foreclosure - 04/27/08 11:14 PM
I've said over and over that I don't do short sales or foreclosures because the better deals come from milking evil developers of every last inch of thier profit. They have started offering huge incentives that are much better than any foreclosure or short sale. "Very qualified" 1st-time home buyers have extra incentives. If you have a 680+ credit score, there are some deals for you. Try these on for size.

East Austin Condos - East Riverside - Oltorf Neighborhood profile - 04/24/08 12:04 AM
Read a great article I found about East Riverside in Austin. East Riverside/Oltorf Austin Neighborhood At first glance, this area looks like apartment central and there is no doubt hundreds of apartments fill the area, some catering to students, others working families and still others aimed at the young, professional market. But after years of what some have called neglect, Austin city planners have turned their attention to the area and much-needed lifestyle infrastructure improvements, particularly parks, are getting big infusions of funding.There are three main areas of apartment development -- East Riverside Drive, East of Interstate 35; East Oltorf Street, also East (1 comments)

Read a great article I found about Bouldin Creek in Austin. Bouldin Creek Austin Neighborhood One of our favorite stories about Bouldin Creek involves David Ansel, the Baltimore native who moved to Austin to follow his soon-to-be-ex girlfriend, found himself in a hi-tech box and quit it all to become The Soup Peddler.Ansel was following a tried and true Austin entrepreneurial model -- he went to Mexico, got inspiration and came back to Austin to start his own business.

SoCo Austin Neighborhood Read a great article I found about SOCO in Austin. South Congress Avenue It may be hard for visitors to Austin's vibrant, creative and hip neighborhood known as SoCo to believe, but just a few years ago South Congress Avenue was a little seedy, a place where businesses had slumped and a couple of motels rented rooms by the hour. The days of headlines about naughty state legislators out on the town caught up in police sweeps are long gone. Now those restored South Congress motels are likely to be renting rooms to high tech execs and movie (0 comments)

My Entry for the ActiveRain Video Contest 2008 - 04/02/08 09:40 PM
My entry for the video contest is an ad I did for one my luxury condo projects in Downtown Austin called Star Riverside.

I'e een made it a joke about the poor quality of the video is still revolutionizing the business. As a realtor and movie fan, I'm surpised that its so popular.
