This blog is about the Austin real estate market, along with tips for agents and other funny stuff that I deem fit to include.
Some of my my friends probably will not like this, while others of you will nod and agree.This is how I decided to get into the real estate industry:I was running a photography and printing business in 1996 catering mainly to Realtors, called Digital Homefront. We were using the brand-new digital...
I have been selling homes for a long time now. It's amazing to me how much the real estate business has changed since I started in 1997. We used to hand-deliver offers or send them using by (thermal) fax. The MLS was DOS-based back then. I had a cell phone that hurt my head when I used it too muc...
I have been selling homes full-time for over 21 years. I don't know everything, but I can offer a few lessons from my career which may help you as a home buyer or seller:First, a good Realtor has access to a variety of lenders. Agents truly want you to qualify for a mortgage (or bring cash, if yo...

The title above comes from a lyric from an old song by Dave Mason called "We Just Disagree" (see embedded video below). The line before that is "There ain't no good guy, there ain't no bad guy."This succinctly describes my feelings about so many stories in 2016, both political and otherwise.Not e...
WARNING: This post may offend some of you. I promise that I don't have any specific acquaintance in mind, but I have noticed a trend. Many of my Facebook friends are probably wishing I would shut up about this election, and who could blame them? Despite my best efforts, I get interested in this s...
For years now, I have mentally promised myself that I would incorporate video on a consistent basis in my marketing efforts. Within the past week or so, I finally started posting short videos about real estate topics to get started. I also posted a longer "Facebook Live" video about a property we...
