Real estate in the San Antonio metro area, the foothills of the Texas Hill Country, and on the Guadalupe River. My market area includes the northern half of San Antonio (Alamo Heights, Fort Sam Houston, Shavano Park, Hollywood Park, and Stone Oak) and northeast (Randolph AFB, Universal City, Windcrest, Schertz, and Cibolo) to New Braunfels, Seguin, and Canyon Lake, including Bexar, Guadalupe, and Comal Counties.
