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. My blog also covers photography; houses and homes; investments and rental properties; pets and wildlife; birds, butterflies, and flowers in my organic garden; travel; fun stuff; and whatever else takes my fancy.

The Spyglass Hill condominium complex has so many beautiful live oak trees, it's like living in a forest. It has a great location, too, just the other side of Fredericksburg Road from the South Texas Medical Center and the University of Texas Health Science Center. It's within walking distance of...

I feel for Tammie, trying to compete in the Nashville market when this sort of thing is allowed by her MLS. Two years ago, the San Antonio MLS started to show not only the days on market for the current listing, but the cumulative days on market. Agents can look up the price history of the recen...

I recently realized that it was time to clean out the gutters on our house and found out it was quite the chore. My husband helped, but we both got pretty dirty and soaking wet. Using the hose, we ended up washing an accumulation of live-oak pollen and leaves down onto ourselves. Oh, well: we gav...

  Angela's post is right on target! I have seen a few of these things when showing homes in the San Antonio area. I especially dislike when the towels are tied with a ribbon to prevent people from using them. That to me is tacky. I always put toilet paper, soap, and guest towels in all the bathro...

I was so sorry to read this today. Carole always left supportive, upbeat comments on my blog and I'm sure she did the same on other people's. She will be missed by all those whose lives she touched. She was a very fine lady. Honoring Carole Provenzale... a Mother a Friend a Mentor and so Much mo...

This time I left the photo in color instead of in black and white. Some of my faithful blog readers could not believe that Miles the cat actually likes to sleep with his faced scrunched up against the chair, so I took a picture of him yesterday to show them. He has chosen to sleep on "the other c...

Its services and staff will take the place of those at Brooke Army Medical Center. BAMC is planned to become the San Antonio Military Medical Center North and will han...

My husband and I went to stay with friends in Alexandria last fall and made several day trips to Washington, DC, to take in the sights. We took a tour of the Supreme Court one day, which is where I spotted this tiny moth. They let us in, but I guess they wouldn't let the moth in, so it went over ...

The May/June 2010 issue of Personal Real Estate Investor magazine focuses on San Antonio, and quotes me. Here is the description of the article from their website: San Antonio, Texas - River City Returns - Five State Lone Star Values - Steeped in Texas history this gem on the edge of Texas hill c...

We recently went on vacation to explore Panama and check out real estate. One of the places we went to see was an island off the Pacific coast that is being developed as a resort and residential area. Right on the beach was the biggest plumeria (or frangipani) tree I've ever seen. As you can see,...
