A Look Back Helps to See the Way Forward Rugg Realty LLC A Sun City TX Success Story On July 26, 2010 I wrote my first blog post titled, What would you do if you had to start over in real estate this morning? http://actvra.in/4nVS . Back in July 2010 I had just closed down my Massachusetts business and relocated to Sun City Texas. I was genuinely starting over from scratch.  I had no contacts, no referrals, no farming, and perhaps most of all, no business, & no cash flow. But, the future looked bright since central Texas looked like it had potential. I asked the Active Rain Community for suggestions on what they would do in this situation and received 37 replies with helpful hints.  It was my first early experience seeing how well the Active Rain members were willing to help a “newbie”....

Situated on the western edge of Georgetown, near Leander, you'll find the new, meticulously planned community of Rancho Sienna.  Great care has gone into the design and architecture and the end results are spectacular.  The community offers up homes from nine different, esteemed builders from the Austin area (listed below) and the prices range from the low 200s to the 500s so there's something for a wide range of buyers. As mentioned, great thought has gone into the design and development of this neighborhood with an emphasis on preserving and celebrating the natural beauty of the hill country.  Rancho Sienna boasts more than 100 acres of parks, trails and open space.  Currently, there are two parks (Greenleaf Park, Sienna Trail Park, ) and more parks and trails are scheduled to be adde...
