figured it was time for some gratuitous baby photos, since it has been a couple of weeks since the last ones that I posted.  I also have a cool new video of my kids that I would like to share sometime soon, but frankly I'm a bit tired to get it posted tonight.

Austin has been honored on yet another national list this week, having been named the #1 city on Forbes' latest list of "Best Bargain Cities".  I took a close look at the data they used in calculating the top rankings.  As always, they analyzed the 50 largest U.S. metro statistical areas for the ...
For a long time, I have considered myself blessed to be selling homes in the Austin, Texas area.  It seems like our town gets a fair amount of positive media exposure these days from the national press.  Once again, Austin was recognized with optimistic economic news this week by Citi...
