Happy Veteran’s Day to all of those that have served for our great country! “They protect, while we sleep. We sleep because they protect. Saying thank you seems silly when I think of all you do, endure and give. Thank you doesn't suffice. I, for one, am unable to communicate my gratitude for all those who serve. Your precious gift to America is incredible.” …a friend of mine shared this with me today. In 2 days, I have the honor to close on a home with a Veteran.  He is also a first time home buyer.  He has had many questions along the way and I have tried to be there for him as much as possible.  He sent me a very nice message thanking me for being patient and answering his questions in detail along the way.  It was my pleasure to do so for him as I do with all my clients but more so i...

Pink Door Gala 2012 5th Anniversary really was a fairy tale ending for all as the theme suggested. Last night was the Pink Door Non-Profit 5th Anniversary Gala and it was a Success! The Pink Door Team pulled off their biggest fundraiser to date where 300 people packed the Houston Four Seasons Hotel to celebrate, raise awareness, and even grant a few wishes for women who have survived Cancer! In support of this event was Houston’s own Dynamo Super Star, Cam Weaver and his wonderful wife, Estrella who were instrumental in helping to plan and bring awareness to this great cause! I am so honored to have been a part of Pink Door since it started and was so proud last night to see how we have grown! This year’s Gala raised money for the Pink Door Non-Profit’s “My Pink Wish” Assistance Program...

The foot fashions of today absolutely run the gamut.  From excessive heels to sequined tennis shoes, you can see the extreme of the high-top variety to be considered for finishing up your wardrobe by taking a quick trip through any shopping mall.I have come to the conclusion that no one is too old or young to sparkle.  It is a part of our nature to be attracted to bling.When we came across these high tops today I found myself considering what I might be able to wear something like this with.  Really!  Could I justify the purchase to wear with jeans when we show acreage?  Horse properties?  Surely there is an outfit in my closet that could be enhanced with a sparkling pair of sneakers!They look as though they would work as well as western boots.  They also look very comfortable.a. Comfo...

This is the Day! A beautiful Day, one that we have been working towards for a long time! Today is the 5th Anniversary Gala for Pink Door Non-Profit! It is more significant than just a party. It is the recognition that the efforts of our supporters and volunteers have made it through the 1st five years in the Non-profit world! They say the 1st 5 are the hardest and we are hopeful that the momentum we have gained will allow us to help more Women than we ever thought possible! Pink Door had a goal of helping 12 Women and 2012 with our Financial Needs Assistance Program, "My Pink Wish"! Pink Door's goal is to "Open the door to a whole new way of life AFTER Cancer!" Because the dream and the hope is to Survive and LIVE LIFE AFTER CANCER! We exceeded our goal this year and not only helped 12 ...

PICTURES WITH SANTA ~ THE WOODLANDS, TEXAS 2012 Santa is already making a debut in The Woodlands Mall beginning this Saturday, November 10, 2012!  Right here in The Woodlands Mall, you can bring the children to see Santa and have some pictures made with him. It is always a wise idea to go ahead and do this early. This is a popular event and every weekend that goes by, the lines get longer and longer.  Santa will be there all the way from this Saturday through December 24, 2012.  Visit the Mall website for details regarding photo packages and location of Santa in the Mall. I can't believe that it is already time for Santa visits yet there are a lot of children that he needs to see!  So plan now to bring the family to see Santa soon.  Ho Ho Ho to all!

There is a cool breeze in our area and the Woodlands Mall will be hosting a visit from none other than Santa Claus this Saturday November 10th.   We will be seeking an opportunity to borrow a grandchild for the day so we will have an excuse to attend this yearly event.   There has not been any press available on the exact time Santa will arrive.  My guess is that you can plan to be there in the mid afternoon and be assured that you will be able to sneak a peak at this holiday icon.   No doubt there will be limitless opportunities to achieve early shopping goals.  The decorations are always breathtaking and will aid you in getting into the generosity mode for the Season.   Mark your calendar for this outstanding event.  If you miss it, it will be an entire year before you have another op...

It is early November and it is an unusual warm 84 degrees outside so we are not quite Snuggling Up Together Like Two Birds of A Feather just yet! However, It’s Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas as Christmas lights, decorations, andStockings Are Being Hung With Careand we haven’t even made it to Thanksgiving.  I am a big fan of Christmas so while others are already saying Bah Humbug due to the earlier arrival of the Holiday Cheer each year, I can’t help but smile as Visions of Sugar Plums Dance In My Head and be reminded of Nat King Cole…he did write “Chestnuts Roasting On An Open Fire” in the heat of the summer to cool himself off a bit, you know!   In this case its Chestnuts Roasting On  An Open …TEXAS…Fire!     Hopefully the weather will soon turn cooler and we will be singing Ji...

WELL, WE ARE WAITING FOR THE ELECTION TO BE OVER....... I have heard this statement over and over of late regarding clients "waiting until the election is over" to make up their minds on a property or to list. Ok, the elections are over! Did it really make a difference for these clients? Time will tell. The interest rate is still historically low, inventory in our area is dwindling and our job market is great in Texas. No more excuses - now is the time to list or purchase property right now! It really is the right time. If you are one of those hold-outs, get off of that fence and let's find you that perfect property or get your current property SOLD! I just don't see everything coming to a screeching halt. What I do see is more time searching for a property and less time listening to th...

Once Upon A Time, in a land far away, far to the North, my Mom, Dad and Sisters were born.  Then they moved to Texas and I was born! I was the first American born in my family and that meant I would be the 1st in my family to be able to VOTE! Most children are read story tales when they are young and I definitely had my share of those but I also remember when I was little being told many times….”When you grow up, you will be able to VOTE!” Although, my parents and sisters were just from the neighboring country to the North, the beautiful country of Canada and there were not many cultural differences, there was one thing I had that they didn’t, the right to vote!  I remember watching elections as a young child with my parents intently and they would say to me, “Remember, one day, you wil...

Why Vote? REALTOR POWER VOTE!   Tomorrow is officially Election Day and I am sure everyone is ready to move past this election but it is an important one and not just for the President.  It is also important to vote for Congress, Senators, and local officials that support issues that are important to our industry.  The Real Estate Market does not just affect Realtors but all Americans and the American Dream of Home Ownership! It is our responsibility as citizens of this great country to go out and vote! I am a 1st generation American so I know too well the privilege it is to vote.  If you have not taken advantage of Early Voting, make sure you get out there and cast your ballot, no matter who you choose. So here is to the Power of The Realtor Vote, get out there and let our voice be hea...

BLACK IGUANA ~ A HOME GROWN PRODUCT!

The Woodlands, TX not only has beautiful nature areas, it also is filled with over 125 developed parks! Play Grounds fill 81 of them and they provide the perfect place to enjoy a beautiful day like today was. My family and I enjoyed Terramont Park today! It is complete with over 16 acres that include a giant playground, covered pavilion with tables, basketball courts, tennis courts, skateboarding park, a Frisbee Gold Course, Soccer Fields, pathway and even a “BARK” Park! This park has something for everyone and we are so glad we live in such a beautiful neighborhood where we can enjoy places like Terramont Park.     A great addition to all the beautiful parks in The Woodlands, are the over 190 miles of pathways that lead to these parks as well as schools, churches, village shopping cent...

IT’S TIME TO STP WATERING Not only should you change your clocks back tonight but it is also time to reset your sprinkler systems.  Local plants and grasses go dormant during the fall and winter and little to no watering is needed depending on the weather.  Significantly reduce settings for your irrigation system or even turn it off and only water when needed.  This will reduce rising water costs which is always a good thing and this helps ensure the long term, reliable water supply for The Woodlands, TX. For more information on The Woodlands Water visit www.wjpa.org   Follow Me on Facebook at www.facebook.com/propertiesbytiffany   for more home advise, local information, and ways I enjoy life here in The Woodlands, Texas!
