I feel incredibly fortunate to have reconnected with some longtime friends and expanded my social circle to include their friends, which has truly broadened my horizons. Recently, a few of us stumbled upon a charming independent hotel and bar in Round Rock, conveniently close to Austin. This hidden gem, known as the Ruby Hotel and Bar; promises a unique experience with excellent service and hospitality, nestled along the picturesque Brushy Creek just 25 minutes away from me. What an unbelievable find!During a spontaneous gathering this week, a member of our group surprised us all by purchasing nine Santa hats and suggesting a meet-up at a delightful boutique for some fun shopping. Our festive escapade leads us to make an impromptu visit to a friend who owns a hair salon. With Santa hats...

What a busy 3 days of showings and a very active open house! This adorable home created quite a stir among buyers! We set a deadline for offers of Saturday night. My sellers were excited with the excellent options to choose from but one stood out from the pack, going significantly over asking price!     Buyers loved the dark Acacia high end, vinyl flooring with its silver overtones and medium color variation, creating a naturalistic modern look.    Of course the light filled open layout with the well-designed kitchen with quartz counters, white cabinets, stainless appliances and gas stove with vent hood caught the eye of all the buyers, especially the one who won the bid. He loves to cook!   The interior quiet street, the well-appointed bedrooms, and the relaxing patio with magnificent ...

My sellers are original owners. They bought this home in 2000 after falling in love with the quiet, interior street in Forest Creek. They are moving to Fort Collins, CO where they purchased a home to be close to family.I listed and sold some good friend’s home this summer and it turned out the wives worked together at IBM. My good friends recommended my services, I interviewed to list the house and have so enjoyed working with these sellers.      The buyers are a perfect fit! They loved the 2 story Austin white stone, with wrap around front porch elevation, 3 car garage, and nestling in a lush setting with mature, carefully chosen landscaping.  They have two children, both sports oriented so the huge back yard will be perfect for soccer practice and a trampoline to hone the skills of a ...

     So much has changed over the past decade. Home Tech is an important part of homes both new and old. This post is not a comprehensive look at tech in homes but a reminder that we live aware of tech in our homes and the homes we visit. By now most of us have seen countless numbers of videos from Ring doorbells and the likes. These modern tech door bells record and notify owners of the presence of visitors both welcome and unwelcome.      Some have taken the entry level tech further and applied it throughout their homes. This means the show at the door may continue as you walk through the home. Inside our homes we can now program our thermostats, ovens, washer and dryers to obey our commands from our phones. We can lock and unlock our homes from miles away all the while taking a peak ...

JUST SOLD: 1810 Greyson Drive Round Rock TX 78664So excited to help these first time homebuyers who have been renting for 4 years! The seller gave them 30 days’ notice (as per rental agreement) as she decided to sell and exercise an option to participate in a 1031 exchange.I wrote up the offer, we did inspections immediately and the lender jumped in with both feet and got it done. Considering our offer was accepted July 6th and we closed on July 27th it took a team effort but we got it done in 21 days! Where there is a will there is a way.Congratulations Travis and Jessica..it was my pleasure to work with and for you. “If you don’t go after what you want, you’ll never have it.” …Nora Roberts“There is no place like home.” …Dorothy Gale
