relocate to amarillo texas: Amarillo Homes For Sale - 06/11/10 01:42 AM
Homes are still selling in Amarillo.  Granted, the climate for home sales is rapidly changing and we're beginning to see a bit of a price softening here now. 
As you know, Amarillo is historically immune to the wild swings in value fluctuations and has long been isolated from the economic losses that many parts of the country have experienced.  That's part of the beauty of living in Amarillo, Texas.
Home sales patterns have changed!  1. Upper end homes (above $200,000) have all but died!  By that I mean the sales in that price range have slowed significantly.  That doesn't mean they … (1 comments)

relocate to amarillo texas: 365 Things To Do In Amarillo, TX DAY 49 - 05/20/10 02:15 AM
DAY 49  May 20, 2010   Take a stroll down 6th street, even if you don't shop!  Today is a beautiful day and on 6th street there are not only a lot of fun shops, but also lots of great places to have a bite to eat. 
6th street really can be a lot of fun because of the diversity of the shops and eating/dining/drinking establishments.  It's really a playback of the 50s or maybe 60s in Amarillo, where you can slow down a bit and enjoy the nostalgia and ambiance of times gone by.
Here is a link to COUPONS that can save … (1 comments)

relocate to amarillo texas: Amarillo Housing - Market Conditions - 05/13/10 03:35 AM
The Amarillo housing market is beginning to slow up a bit!  We've had pretty brisk sales in the lower price ranges and very sporatic activity in the upper ranges with almost no activity in the high ranges.
Even the lower ranges seem to be slowing up a bit!  As one of the top producers in the area, we notice these changes rather quickly! 
We're keeping a pulse on the market for you so that you will have instant and accurate information when you need it!  We're only a phone call away and are happy to assist you whether you are buying … (0 comments)

We normally go there for lunch but they are open for dinner as well!  Prices are reasonable, serving sizes are generally large and the drinks are self serve!  (I love that part!)

relocate to amarillo texas: 365 Things To Do In Amarillo, TX DAY 26 - 04/27/10 01:32 AM
The suggestion of the day is the Stockyard Cafe in Amarillo.  Located in the big sale barn at the heart of the vast Amarillo stockyards, where several thousand head of beef cattle are auctioned every week, this is one sure-as-shootin' cowpunchers' haven with a mostly-steak menu plus honest hash-house breakfast every morning starting at 6.
The atmosphere is definitely not your everyday fine dining restaurant like Johnny Carino's or Outback, but it's a great break from the mundane and gives you a chance to see what else is available in Amarillo. 
I've eaten there many times over the years and have … (0 comments)

DAY 10   April 11, 2010        Wildcat Bluff Nature Center is the suggestion for the day. 
Just a few minutes from downtown Amarillo is a place to step out of the daily routine and imagine a different time. More than 600 acres of rolling grasslands are threaded with nature trails offering a sense of isolation and tranquility. Discover delicate wildflowers amidst knee-high grasses, huge cottonwoods, and a magnificent bluff.
Amarillo's mistaken reputation as a vast FLAT dry land is blown away by the beauty and serenity of Wildcat Bluff!  Here's the link to their site!
Till next time!!

relocate to amarillo texas: Spring is in the air!!! "NOT!!" - 02/28/10 01:53 PM
This winter in the Texas Panhandle has been a record breaking year for Amarillo and surrounding areas!  I can't remember it being this cold for this long in a long, long time! 
I'm ready for winter to be OVER!!! 
Amarillo Homes are still moving, just not at such a rapid pace!  High end properties seem to have slowed for the past couple of years but the medium price range homes are still moving pretty well! 
I'd love to hear your experience in this market!  If you've bought or sold a home in the past two years, I'd like to hear from … (2 comments)
