Sushi - and lots of ginger! This was purchased at my local Atascocita HEB.  My compliments to their on-site Sushi Chef!  The HEB Sushi Bar has a wide variety of sushi combinations to select from.  From the easily recognizable California Roll to the Unago (Eel) seen in the photo above.  And although ginger is ordinarily used as a palate cleanser between different types of sushi, I enjoy it right along with my bites.  And today at HEB, the sushi chef was very accommodating, as always, and added extra ginger for my lunch.  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. ...

Mission Burrito in Atascocita is giving away a free kid's meal to each Halloween costumed kid this Saturday, October 31, 2009.  Kids must be accompanied by an adult.  If you haven't been to Mission Burrito yet - drop what you're doing, get in the car and drive right on over for some delicious fresh food! Burritos, burrito bowls, tacos, salad & soup are items you can select to personalize with the choices like chicken, shrimp, pork or beef - then add salsa, corn, cheese, peppers, beans - whatever tickles your taste buds.  My personal favorite is their Que Mas Salad.  It is made with mixed greens, roasted corn, red peppers, carrots, jicama, potatoes, cheese & tortilla strips.  Add the Serrano Cilantro Ranch Dressing.  Yum.  Susan Brown, Your Texas Connection sells real estate in Walden on...

BookCrossing is something I heard about from a team member.  She told me it was a great way to share books with strangers.  And you feel as if you are giving your books good homes.  Passing the literary wealth around, if you will.  Here is what the BookCrossing website had to say: BookCrossing is earth-friendly, and gives you a way to share your books, clear your shelves, and conserve precious resources at the same time. Through our own unique method of recycling reads, BookCrossers give life to books. A book registered on BookCrossing is ready for adventure. Leave it on a park bench, a coffee shop, at a hotel on vacation. Share it with a friend or tuck it onto a bookshelf at the gym -- anywhere it might find a new reader! What happens next is up to fate, and we never know where our boo...

Thanksgiving.  The time of year where the age-old question is raised. Is it Stuffing or is it Dressing? To me, it's simple.  It's stuffing inside the turkey, dressing outside the bird.  But since I had a burning desire to know what others thought, I took this question to the streets of Atascocita.  And I found out it was pretty evenly split.  The other thing I found out is that everyone wants to tell you what kind of stuffing/dressing they make! Cornbread, oyster, cranberry-nut, sausage, wild rice and mushroom - and these are just a few on the list.  Anyway, I digress.  Back to "stuffing or dressing."  Now, as I pondered a bit more.  How does this question apply to real estate? Isn't the "stuffing or dressing" kind of like a how a seller perceives the sale of their home?  A good majorit...

Walden on Lake Houston is having its Community Garage Sale tomorrow, Saturday, October 24.  This community-wide event always brings out the shoppers!  It's a great way for residents of Walden on Lake Houston to have traffic driven to their garage sales by community advertising.  I have a friend who is an expert on how to set up a garage sale.  So, anytime I wanted to participate in the Walden on Lake Houston Community Garage Sale - I called Sue for assistance!  She would come over and set up the sale with me.  Here are her rules: Departments.  Categorize everything for sale.  Kitchen, clothing, jewelry, toys, books & 8-Tracks (LOL-I guess that would be music).  You get the idea.  This makes your garage sale shopper-friendly. Payment.  Wear a fanny pack for your cash.  Don't use a cash b...

I read a Chris Hallmark's blog today.  It was about attracting business to your website.  One point he brought up was keeping your blog interesting.  As I commented on his point, I thought about how creating a well-rounded blog is like making a mix tape or CD or using the IPOD shuffle.  Most of us want variety in our lives.  And here is what I strive for in my blogposts. INFORM  I use market reports to inform the community about the real estate activity in their area. EDUCATE  I write about latest trends in the real estate field.  Or give tips on how to sell or buy real estate.  Or explain how an inspection is carried out.  SELL  I put my listings out there.  Not only am I selling this house but I am selling Your Texas Connection's marketing techniques.  SUPPORT Here is where I write ab...

The 411 on FSBO.  Not the 411 as in how to create your own FSBO.  More like the 411 on all the pieces involved in a FSBO.  And finishing up with WHY? The first thing a FSBO is going to undertake is making the house marketable.  Are they thinking like a buyer?  Probably not.  Our experience has taught us that our sellers think like sellers.  It looks great to them so it will look great to everyone else.  Next for the FSBO is determining price.  That is huge.  Where do they get all the statistics that show the current sales?  You can't go by what someone's cousin's neighbor said they heard a house sold for.  Concrete figures put you in the arena for home selling. Advertising and marketing.  What's the budget here?  They could hire one of the FSBO type companies on the internet.  And that ...
