Congratulations to my friends, Bruce and Karen for putting their faith in me once again in selling their home. They are moving out of Austin this time to be closer to family. I knew buyers would fall in love with this stunning, single story nestled on a quiet interior street, on a 1.04 acre lot, in prestigious Reagan's Overlook.    Buyers recognized this home to be truly a living masterpiece, harmonizing nature, comfort, and modern technology. Defined by high ceilings, columns, arches, wood flooring and banks of windows across the back; they appreciated the impeccable attention to detail.    Many loved the kitchen with the expanded center island opening to the family.   The icing on the cake was the rear porch with the floor to ceiling stone fireplace, overlooking the park-like backyard...

The perfect buyers came through the door, after a busy week-end of buyers looking! Their daughter lives close by and this single story is perfect to be close by to help out with the grandkids. I love that when it happens!  I feel like they hit the jack pot with this well-maintained home. They loved how this single, story gem lives larger with the bonus of high ceilings, straight clean lines, skylight in the entry, and freshly painted interior and exterior!   The family, kitchen, and dining spaces were easily recognized as blending, creating an inviting space for their family and guests.              One attribute that stood out was the primary suite, tucked away at the rear of the home for ultimate privacy. We are moving on to a short 4 day option period with inspections tomorrow. A win...

It was so rewarding to once again assist my previous client in helping a family member, secure an amazing new construction home.We sat down with the builder and hammered out a contract August, 2020 and just closed May 12, 2022! Needless to say it was a process with COVID and supply chain issues. If there is one thing we learned during the pandemic; it’s important to practice patience and graciousness.            Congratulations to my awesome clients! The wait was worth it!I’m thrilled to have partnered with my past clients on the purchase of another new home. Thinking of buying? We can collaborate and you can be sure to receive honest, reliable and result proven advice. Let me put my passion, enthusiasm and experience to work for you.

I am an Enrolled Agent who represents taxpayers in Leander and central Texas who owe the IRS, have unfiled tax returns, are being threatened with collection enforcement, or similar issue.If you're like most taxpayers then you probably wince or crease your brow upon receiving a notice from the IRS. It's usually not a good thing. What do you do when you receive an IRS collection notice?The IRS doesn't send out a collection notice until they've determined that you owe them money. That means that you should have already been contacted about your tax return being audited or changed due to discrepancies or mismatch with information provided to the IRS by 3rd parties such as form W2, 1099, 1099B, and so on.You may be contacted by an IRS collections representative known as a Revenue Officer.The...

I am an Enrolled Agent who represents taxpayers in Leander and central Texas who owe the IRS, have unfiled tax returns, are being threatened with collection enforcement, or similar issue.There are many reasons people find themselves with a big tax bill. For example, being self-employed, failing to make estimated tax payments, taking a large distribution out of a qualified retirement plan, selling property or stocks with gains, failing to pay employment taxes, experienced a financial setback, the list is long.Often the funds that resulted in a tax problem have been spent on other things and not enough, if anything, has been set aside for the IRS. Sometimes a financial hardship has occurred making it very difficult to get caught up on the debt. More recently, many have been adversely affe...

I represent taxpayers in Leander and the rest of Texas who have civil and criminal tax issues, and have recently seen an uptick in those folks coming to us who have not filed tax returns, some for many years. In fact, the non-filer is a major priority for the IRS, who have stated publicly that they have identified more than 7 million taxpayers who have failed to file returns, and that the IRS plans to roll-out an initiative to target these tax scofflaws.In addition, it is worth noting that the willful failure to file a tax return is a federal tax crime under the Internal Revenue Code's Section 7203.So what can non-filers do, and how can we help them get their tax return issue resolved with the IRS? It depends upon why they failed to file in the first-place.If the failure to file the tax...

I'm blessed to work with the most amazing sellers! A past client referred me to Sally who was moving back to CA to take care of her daughter who has medical problems and needed me to list her home. What a joy to work with! At closing her niece came out to drive her cross country. Look at her smile and sparkly eyes when we closed at Independence Title!Sally is a woman of faith and told me God told her what day her house should go on the market, for how much and told her she would get full price. We listed on a Saturday morning (I usually like to go on market on a Thursday but what do I know) at the price she wanted, sold at full price, closed when she wanted and the buyers last name was Lord. What more could we ask for....all the pieces fit perfectly! If you are a homeowner I would love ...

Not surprised this stunning single story didn't last long!Perfect buyer who is downsizing and loves the upgrades, flow of the floor plan, covered front and rear porch and the loving way this home has been maintained. Another chef will be creating memories and hosting family and friends for get-togethers in this well appointed kitchen! My seller is excited to be turning over the keys to this buyer who loves and appreciates this home..a good match and one I enjoy seeing. Are you considering selling in the near future? Are you curious about your home value or how to prioritize updates/repairs before selling? Let's talk about your real estate needs. I'd like to help.

My repeat clients closed Monday on their home in Canyon Creek I sold to them 5 years ago and we just closed on their one-of-a-kind custom home on 2.39 acres in the heart of Leander. Couldn't ask for a better location..close to everything! Their two children already are picking a spot for a garden and are begging to buy some chickens! I'm so happy for this retired veteran and his family for finding the perfect place to call home. It was my pleasure to represent them once again and know they will add their finishing creative touches to take this home to extraordinary heights just like their previous home. Opportunities for Leander real estate are competitive so let me assist you as your search becomes more focused. I like to hear about your needs, your requirements and yes even those far-...
