Greek food comes to Atascocita!  SAVVAS Greek Cuisine & GrillLocated at 6730 Atascocita Rd - this new restaurant was our lunch spot today.  And I can hardly wait for my next trip back.  When we arrived at 11:45 AM, there were about 6 other diners.  By the time we left, the restaurant was almost full with hungry people still in line.  You order at the counter, pick up your drinks & have a seat.  When your number is called - get ready for some delicious food.  I selected #34 - Horiatiko Loukaniko.  This was a plate with 2 Greek country sausages on pita bread (fresh & fluffy) served with tomatoes, onions, tzatziki sauce & a stuffed grape leaf.  It comes with a side of fries.  Crispy, salted just right fries.  My friend had #17 - the Beef Gyros.  The beef, with a touch of lamb, was served i...

I have something stuck in my head.  It came from the Stefan Swanepoel seminar that I went to a few weeks ago.  Stefan spoke about advertising, specifically print & mailers.  He said that while a large number of realtors used the "I'm #1 in sales," or "I'm the top listing agent," only 19% of the public believed statements like that.  The rest of the group relied upon online reviews.  Wow.  Pretty powerful stuff.  Especially since I've used those ads myself.  After the seminar, I couldn't stop thinking about that point.  I use online reviews all the time.  So it made perfect sense to me that others would too.  For instance, when I'm making a purchase, I go to Amazon & look up my item to read what others are saying.  Or I check at Epinions or Consumer Search.  Getting the lowdown from othe...

It's that time of the year for us, hot weather in the 100's and afternoon showers.  Or maybe not.  The afternoon begins with the clouds rolling in and we get excited that water will fly from the sky to wet our backyards, roofs and help our plants stay alive.  Of course, the flip side to this is how the humidity will soar and the Steambath Effect will take over.  Susan Brown, Your Texas Connection sells real estate in Walden on Lake Houston, Eagle Springs, Summerwood, Atascocita, TX, Kingwood Greens, Royal Shores & Kingwood, TX - just to name a few!  Susan's the team leader for Your Texas Connection at Keller Williams Realty NE.  Visit their website for more in depth info about the team and what they can do for you.  Or call Susan direct (281) 415-1454 if you'd like her to start working ...

When a friend of mine needed tech support, she dreaded making the call since she didn't speak "technie."  It apparently wasn't something that could be solved over the phone, so a new member of the Tech Squad came out to fix the problem.  After close examination behind the screen & a quick glance at the mouse, the problem was solved!  Susan Brown, Your Texas Connection sells real estate in Walden on Lake Houston, Eagle Springs, Summerwood, Atascocita, TX, Kingwood Greens, Royal Shores & Kingwood, TX - just to name a few!  Susan's the team leader for Your Texas Connection at Keller Williams Realty NE.  Visit their website for more in depth info about the team and what they can do for you.  Or call Susan direct (281) 415-1454 if you'd like her to start working on your behalf today!

Walden on Lake Houston, our golf course community in Atascocita, offers the opportunity to purchase a home on one of its 18 challenging holes.  No matter where you are located on the hole - you have a great view of the golf action.  The tee box gives you the first shot perspective.  All along the fairway you get to enjoy the golfers' journey to the goal.  And on the green, you'll be able to hear the cheers of that little ball going in the cup!  Living on the golf course does bring the possibility of an errant ball coming into your yard or hitting your window but that is a small price to pay for having a wonderful backyard view.  Plus the value of your home is increased due to location, location, location! As you can see from this quarterly comparison, the market conditions for this year...
