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



As I watched my point total creep up toward the 400,000 mark recently, I wondered if it would happen before or after Christmas, then I began to think that it might happen before Thanksgiving. Well, having it happen in between the holidays is okay, too! Today, I crossed this (somewhat) momentous p...
When I was a kid, I had a "pen pal" who lived in Japan.  I can't for the life of me remember his name now, but I really used to look forward to getting his letters in the mail.  Heck, when I was a kid, I used to look forward to getting ANYTHING in the mail.  Back then, cards from my grandmother ...
One of my agents listed a new construction home in the Georgetown area.  The yard is not in yet in the photo above, but it will have bermuda grass soon.  It's located just a couple of minutes from the intersection of Highway 29 and SH-130 (toll road).  Here are some of the primary features: 3 Be...
Simply put, I am blessed beyond what I deserve in this life.  I wanted to take a few minutes to put into words what I am thankful to God for this year.  I didn't write my post on Thanksgiving Day for a couple of reasons: I didn't want it to get lost in the shuffle of other Thanksgiving posts (and...
Whenever you are considering reading a post on ActiveRain, there is some "preview" text which appears there. I think it's about 50 words or so.

Thankfully, it resulted in us submitting an offer this evening! Their current home i...
Ever since gas prices started their rather precipitous climb, I have been much more observant about where to find better prices.  As they've dropped, this "shopper's gene" has stuck with me (i.e. I still notice).  I think the cheapest gas prices I have seen here in Austin lately are in the $1.77 ...
My SEO company invited me to conduct a webinar yesterday for their clients about blogging and social media/social networking.  Overall, it went really well!  I wasn't nervous at all until about two minutes before we went "live", but it passed quickly. This was a Social Networking and Blogging 101...
I was chatting back and forth with my friend Margaret Woda about her latest contest - cool idea. See details below: If you've never written a blog post, and don't know where to start, you'll like this contest... If you're an occasional ActiveRain visitor, discouraged by lack of comments, unsure ...
I got tagged today two times for the new book meme, or easy meme, or easy book meme, or whatever it's actually called.  I have written a lot of different memes during my 15 months here, but this one seemed really easy, so why not?  The taggers were James Downing and Charles Buell. Here are the "r...
