President William Taft once said, "Next to the right of liberty, the right of property is the most important individual right guaranteed by the Constitution." A good Realtor can help your referrals obtain the individual right to own property granting a sense of home and belonging unequaled by any...
Today is a bittersweet day for all the Big Orange Tennessee Fans. Philip Fulmer, who has been the head coach at TN since 1993, resigned today. Buying out his contract will cost the university a huge chunk of change but honestly, it is the best thing for TN football at this time. I have been a loy...
This past week I had the opportunity to attend the Texas RE/MAX Top 250 Individuals Retreat. This had been planned for a while to be held at Moody Gardens in Galveston, TX. When Ike struck the coast with all his force and fury, we were certain the retreat would be canceled or relocated. About 2 w...
As mentioned in a previous blog, I have some clients here from out of state to buy a home. They will be moving here and starting a new job on November 1. This is specifically a house hunting trip; pre-approved, down payment in the bank, motivated buyer. They identified several homes via the inter...

We are not in as depressed a market as much of the USA but lately buyers have been in short supply. Since Ike's exit from the area, we have had cooler tem...

I started my day early preparing to hunker down. After a breakfast meeting, I headed straight to the grocery for all the things I thought we had to have for Ike: food, ice, water, batteries, snacks, chlorine bleach. (I forgot instant coffee; I hope to find some tomorrow.) Then I headed to the gas...
In today's Houston Chronicle newspaper, there is an article about niche neighborhoods that are being designed to purposely create a sense of community. I happen to live, work and sell in the nation's number one planned development, The Woodlands, TX, so the article caught my interest. The story t...
  I think this shows joy, surprise and wonder. Everything a blog does!
Honestly, I do not think anyone would have ever guessed that The Woodlands Highlanders would shut out the Katy Tigers at the new Woodforest Stadium last night. I am one of those die-hard fans who has had season tickets for years and years. Because of the long-term relationship I have with season ...
