The Innocence Project I am sort of re-blogging something I did from a couple years ago, with the new numbers and some minor changes. It is a cause I support, because I know we have a flawed system. Can you imagine the police showing up at your home or office and arresting you or your child for a ...
Inform your buyers with a Design Presentation We have a listing presentation-Why not a design presentation for buyers? There are a lot of distressed properties out there. Some just need carpet and paint and some a little more. First time buyers want something of their own. They usually just don’t...
How many towns do not have an internet MLS? I was working with a client who had her home listed in another state. She wanted to purchase a home here in the Austin area as soon as her home sold. I contacted her agent to get her thoughts on our clients home since I wasn’t able to find it on the int...

However, I don’t miss shoveling snow, scraping ice, snow boots, icy roads, salt sludge, and just freezing...

I'd also like t...
Yes, you can buy the first house I show you. I usually spend hours going through listing after listing trying to find the right match for my client. In fact yesterday I did a search which came back with 664 results. I sent my client 5 listings. I don’t want to waste their time, and I don’t want t...
