All About Texas Real Estate

        It's a simple story. People meet and fall in love. They have children. Children go to school, they learn social skills, participate in fun activities, grow up, and learn to defend for themselves. Lifetime achievements include milestone birthdays, graduations, getting married, becoming a soldier, or assuming leadership positions. Expectations are real. Commitments are made. Tears are shed. Soldiers go off to war when duty calls. Lives are shattered if they don't come home. The compassionate never forgets one single moment they had with their loved ones. Some leaders are more eloquent and influential than others. Some never get married but they have followers. We are all created to help one another. When promises are broken people don't forget.

It's turning out to be an exciting season already in College Football.  The Longhorns are headed to the SEC, and are breaking in a new head coach.The Aggies narrowly escaped their 2nd game of the season but are solidly in the Top 10 rankings. Growing up in Austin, my family has always cheered on the Longhorns. My sister and brother in-law both graduated from there, and I spent many many hours doing laps at the Lee and Joe Jamail Swim Center. However, swimming took me to Clemson University in SC and my wife graduated from A&M. She has additional family support now that my nephew just finished his college days at A&M. I'm excited to see the Clemson flag flying at our kids school every Thursday during the football season (several alumni got together during a PTA fundraiser and won the sile...

Day to day life has a lot of moving parts. Unfortunately, this sometimes makes it a little too easy to misplace some of those things that we use every day. This can be a real hassle, causing you to spend time looking for the various things you need instead of using them. Most smartphones come with a “find my phone” feature, so wouldn’t it be great if everything else had a similar function?With the advent of smart tags, this is actually possible. These tags make it easy to locate lost items around the home and can even provide extra security against theft or loss while you’re out and about. The specific features and functions depend on the brand of smart tags that you use, but regardless of brand you’ll find that there are some features that are universal.How Do Smart Tags Work? Smart ta...

Once again our NW Austin Coldwell Banker office knocked it out of the park with a record breaking 39 agents, in August 2021, eligible for the Million Dollar Club by listing, writing business or closing sales during the month of 1 Million or more! So proud of everyone's contribution! Our office closed 98 properties, 34 leases and 5 referrals. We listed 33 homes and wrote 108 contracts and 36 leases pending!  I love working in an office where everyone works together in a culture of awesomeness, celebrating each other's success and encouraging each other to grow. This kind of office is essential for me.  Knowledge is power and people need information and guidance to make an informed decision. Our office puts our clients’ needs first and each one of us prides ourselves on professionalism, c...

Even though experts agree there's no chance of a large-scale foreclosure crisis, there are a number of homeowners who may be coming face-to-face with foreclosure as a possibility. And while the overall percentage of homeowners at risk is decreasing with time (see graph below), that's little comfort to those individuals who are facing challenges today.If you haven't taken advantage of the forbearance period, it may be time to research and understand your options. It starts with knowing what foreclosure is. Investopedia defines it like this:Foreclosure is the legal process by which a lender attempts to recover the amount owed on a defaulted loan by taking ownership of and selling the mortgaged property. Typically, default is triggered when a borrower misses a specific number of monthly pa...

Four years ago, I was going to list my past clients home on 9613 Cinnabar Trail. They started construction on a loft downtown and ended up firing a contractor and starting with a new one. The supply chain for things they wanted drew the process out and then COVID hit! Even with all the delays and frustration there was a silver lining as their home in Canyon Creek doubled in price over the past 4 years!It’s not a wonder buyers fell in love with this executive home. It’s truly a living master masterpiece, harmonizing nature, comfort, and modern technology. It’s the perfect sanctuary of suburban living. With solid planning and preparation, we addressed the most important items to ready the home for market. The finishing touch came from Brian Morris, (my favorite stager), who owns Brian Dav...

Becoming financially secure is an important goal for many people today, but some don't realize just how much homeownership can help them achieve that dream. A recent report, The Journey Toward Financial Freedom, surveys Americans about their perspective on financial wellness and their goals. It shows there may be a significant misconception about the role owning a home plays in building wealth:Home ownership is one of the indicators Americans say is least connected to financial health.”Two major personal wealth goals homeownership and net worth work hand-in-hand. Below are just a few reasons why, if you're looking for financial security, homeownership should be a top priority.Homeownership Is an Important Cornerstone of Building WealthEvery three years, the Federal Reserve releases the ...
