MONTGOMERY COUNTY WOMEN'S BUSINESS ASSOCIATION FASHION SHOW!    I had the best time last week at the Montgomery County Women's Business Association Fashion Show and Ladies Night Out!  Held at the Lakeside room of April Sound out on Lake Conroe, the event was well attended, food was great and we had a blast! Money was raised for the purpose of scholarships to young ladies in our community to go to college.  This is always a cause near and dear to my heart as a former educator. Bandier Realty Partners is always excited and happy to be involved in community events and I enjoy working with the group of folks that I do that are passionate about where we live! I am looking forward to the next event and hope to see some of my colleagues that I haven't seen in awhile again very soon!

  When the outdoors calls your name and just will not let you persist in your ordered indoor activities, what will you do? If you are like many, you will eventually give in to your urge to get outside, and go somewhere. Even if it is just out to your patio, or to dig in the ground, you owe yourself some real vitamin D laced with as fresh a source for air as you can reasonably find.   This is one of those time when you may wish that you lived close to a lake or other outdoor haven. There is some kind of magic about sunlight dancing on the water.   Yesterday, we were faced with a day when inside just would not do. Cabin fever had evolved into a full scale illness. The indoor chores were done quickly to allow as much of the day as possible to be spent in the great outdoors.   Leisure is no...

Conroe Homes - Montgomery TX - This time "NO Flood Plain" Ahhh..Home Donna and Tom Cottrell have "found Home" with their SingingRealtor.com.  The story they have about their last home is scary at best. I was horrified as I listened to how water filled their front yard, then their house, and didn't go down.  Their only escape was by boat.  And they have children.  What a nightmare.  In this part of Texas, the Cottrells are not alone. Donna and Tom are just super people.  They are easy to talk to, easy to be around, and always something about them that makes you smile.  The Cottrells are one of the many reasons that I LOVE my job. I LOVE being a Realtor.   am very Happy, indeed.  "No man is an island," we all need each other. The Cottrell family has been through hardships that most famili...

A 50% fee increase, are you kidding me. In our current economic environment who in their right mind would do such a thing? How is that for a headline? That seems like a headline that would doom any politician in this day and age.  It did just happen however it is not any where near as bad as it sounds. The San Jacinto River Authority, who controls Lake Conroe, did increase its' license and permit fees effective September 1, 2010. The authority raised the minimum residential dock fee from $40 to $60 a year. This is the first increase in over six years. Over all I think that is still a pretty good deal in this day and age. When you think about it $5.00 a month to rent you own little piece of our beautiful lake is still a pretty good deal in any economic times. And if you get a chance chec...

This picture was taken a few weeks ago at one of Lake Conroe Sailing Association's Thursday night races.  My husband crews and I help on the committee boat.  We never know what the weather is going to be like and it can change in the flick of an eye.  We ended the race early because of those weird clouds you see (I did not photo-shop this picture).  As it turned out this time the clouds turned to nothing but you do have to be careful when you are on the water. One of the many things we love about Spring is the accessiblity to Lake Conroe.  You don't have to live on the lake to sail on the lake.
