This blog is about the Austin real estate market, along with tips for agents and other funny stuff that I deem fit to include.



I am approaching my 15-year college reunion, which means I have been out of high school nearly 20 years now.  I graduated in 1988, which sometimes seems like a long time ago, and other times seems very near in my memory.  My final semester of high school, we went on a ski trip and one of my fonde...
Please bear with me as the point of this post will take some time to develop, but I think you will appreciate it. I recently watched a movie on cable with my wife called "The Lake House" with Sandra Bullock and Keanu Reeves.  I didn't honestly expect to like it very much, although I love Sandra B...
I was thinking about Halloween today, since we have some neighbors who seem to be seriously over-the-top with their decor for this "holiday".  My wife informed me that they had placed rubber heads on pikes on either side of their sidewalk.  Sure enough, there are some relatively lifelike severed ...
Last night, I took my family to EZ's Restaurant on North Lamar about a block north of 38th Street, just across the street from the H-E-B Central Market shopping area.  This is a fun restaurant for the whole family, and the kids actually liked it so much, they asked if we could return again today....
Okay, so maybe it's not that bad.  However, life with three energetic kids (one of whom is a very verbal 19-month old girl) is sometimes quite challenging. I have been spending more time around the house lately, since we have some family issues that I have addressed elsewhere on my blog.  Maybe t...
I recently wrote two personal posts that have generated a lot of sincere concern from my Active Rain friends:A Day of Clarity for my Family (about my mother-in-law Jackie) and My Friend David (about a dear friend battling cancer for the second time this year)Since I have received a good number of...
As part of my continuing series of articles demonstrating how affordable and exciting the Austin real estate market really is, I focus my gaze today on properties in the $700,000 range (or a little less).  Come walk with me, won't you? This Beautiful House on 3.75 acres provides more than ample p...
   As a real estate broker in Austin, I have found that there are a few questions that typically surface when I am speaking with someone who is looking to relocate to this area.  I thought it might be a good idea to address some of these head-on, in an effort to educate.  Also, I wanted to touch ...
It was May 29, 1991, and I was a junior in college.  Two of my friends wanted to go out and party in Austin (we lived in Georgetown, about 30 minutes north).  I was the one with a car, and I really didn't want to go out.  They convinced me, and I told them that if we were going out, we were going...
This post was inspired by Chris Elizabeth Griffith, who wrote her own "six pack" of favorite posts and encouraged us all to do the same.  I decided to do mine as an award showcase for my previous posts.  These are my favorites of the bunch.  Since I chose more than six blogs, I am calling this a ...
