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



Today, I met my good friend and fellow agent Alan Kirkpatrick for lunch.  It wasn't hard for me to decide where to get together.  My first choice was Down the Alley Bistro on the square in Georgetown. Located at the corner of 8th Street and Austin Avenue (on the SE corner - facing the courthouse)...
I haven't ever tried to use my blog in quite this manner, but I will be interested to see what kind of response this brings. The house next door to us is on the market now.  I sold it for the previous owners about two years ago, and an out-of-state investor purchased it.  With the relatively high...
One of my agents, Victoria Tackett, is a Stone Canyon expert.  As a longtime resident of the area, she also sold many of the David Weekley Homes there when she used to work as a new home sales consultant for them. She has a new listing at 8404 Lofty Lane which appears to be in immaculate conditio...

Features: 3 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms 2 dining areas (formal dining and breakfast) 1772 s.f. per tax records Built in 1994 Immaculately...
As our online radio show (Social Media Edge) has grown in popularity over the past 8 months or so, it has also added more "staff".  Ken Cook and I started the show on a whim back in November/December 2008.  Since then, we have become one of the most listened-to programs about social media on Blog...
One of my agents ended up withdrawing a listing a couple of days ago, for a number of reasons.  During their email correspondence, which I later had a chance to read, the seller used the quote you see in the title of this post. I have NEVER had a client tell me that I should have pushed them hard...

I am happy to announce a new contest with the a very unique theme:  "Memories of My Childhood Home".  Much like the local video contest that we just had last month, this will give the opportunity to win 5,000 (FIVE THOUSAND!) bonus points for the 1st place winner.

Green Expo 2009 is being held this Saturday, July 25th from 10am to 6pm at the Dell Diamond in Round Rock.  This event is hosted by the Williamson County Association of Realtors.  My friend Steve Rosenbaum of will be on-hand, and I plan to check it out myself.  With the recent req...
I hope you can join us in the morning (or at lunchtime, depending on  your time zone).  Tomorrow's "Social Media Edge" show should be very informative and fun (as always).  I even have a new microphone, which makes me louder and easier to hear on the air.  This is important when you have Ken Cook...
