Dear Potential Austin Home Buyer, Austin is a beautiful and eclectic town with an optimistic and youthful spirit.  I can understand why you would like to live here with us.  I was born and raised in Dallas, but I have lived here for over 22 years now. If you are considering relocating to the Aust...
  Many of you have been following the story of my dear friend David Wilder and his battle with cancer.  My last post about this (Another update on my friend and my mother-in-law ) spurred some of my AR friends to action, and for that I am eternally grateful.  Several people emailed or commented t...
  While we were out and about enjoying some phenomenal weather yesterday, my wife mentioned that she would like to check out the new IKEA store in Round Rock.  I had been there once, and I cringed inwardly a little bit, because I was familiar with the layout there.  However, they do have a massiv...
 There is an old saying in our state, "If you don't like the weather in Texas, wait five minutes - it'll change!".  This is sometimes completely true, and never more so than this week so far. Yesterday, my mom was in town, so we took the kids out shopping and to lunch at Chuy's, where we had some...

 Today, my nine-year old son Brandon celebrated the culmination of several months of effort by attending and completing the "Final Mile" ceremony for Marathon Kids.  In essence, Brandon completed a full marathon's worth of running over a period of many weeks, and this final event was held at a st...
The Austin Children's Museum in downtown Austin serves as a great outing for the entire family.  My wife and I have had a membership there previously, and it is well worth the money.  With a recent influx of funds, the museum has completely revamped many of the learning areas, and our kids, ages ...
This past week, a few people had asked me for updates on my good friend David and on my mother-in-law Jackie, based on the previous posts I have written about each of them.  Before proceeding, and if you have time, I would recommend reading these past posts in order to better understand what I am...
 I was 9 years old when I started listening to the Beatles.  My mom bought me some of their albums, and others I purchased with lawn-mowing money.  I would study the lyrics as I played the records over and over again, since precision was important to me for some reason.  Even difficult and intric...
I just listed a home in Round Rock (just north of Austin, Texas).  It is filled with cool decor and upgrades, all at an incredible price.  My client is a good friend of mine from church, and he and his wife are both artists.  The home has 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, 963 s.f. per appraiser, with a on...
