Great news! I'm delighted to share that my latest listing in Canyon Creek, located at 10218 Open Gate Drive, has closed. I stopped over the day before closing to make sure the house was cleaned, yard mowed, garbage cans emptied, put away and left a sheet for the buyer and their agent for their walkthrough with important details they might need to know for the home.The house next door I listed and closed in 2017 and love what they have done to make it their own. The house a few doors down I sold to wonderful clients in 2019, they love the community and updated so many things, including adding a pool! The house across the street I listed in 2007 and the transformation is stunning.The new buyers are going to find they moved to a wonderful interior street on a quiet cul-de-sac within Canyon...

Last Monday on April 8th, 2024 the whole country was obsessed with the solar eclipse! I’ve read many posts where school classes, businesses, the general public and just about everyone took time to witness this phenomenon. What an opportunity! The next one won’t be visible until 2044. The general consensus was it was utterly amazing!Canyon Creek Elementary (The Comets) took full advantage of the teaching moment for its students and I was thrilled to hear the excitement they witnessed.“We have more possibilities available in each moment than we realize.”Thich Nhat Hanh

What an exciting Friday night celebrating 2 milestone Birthdays for the beautiful mother daughter duo, Annette & Victoria. The setting was perfect on the outside deck at Super Saps, decorated beautifully with white linen table cloths and white roses. Groovy tunes were sung by the talented Kelly Doze. The Thai buffet was outstanding, and glad to see such a wonderful gathering for music, fun and laughter.  I feel incredibly fortunate to have such diverse and wonderful friends who include me in their fantastic celebrations! I feel that Birthdays are truly special occasions that deserve to be cherished; after all, we all know the alternative! Celebrating the dual milestone of turning 30 and 60 is simply amazing and was excited to be a part of it! My friend Annette is an amazing, kind hearte...

Yesterday was a full day, beginning with making sure I made my granddaughter, Beckett's, softball game. The Smurfs faced a tough opponent but displayed admirable resilience throughout the game, refusing to yield even as the opposing team racked up runs. Beckett showcased her dedication and skill on the field, earning recognition as one of the game's three most valuable players and receiving a coveted surf sticker as a testament to her outstanding performance. I love witnessing her evolution into a skilled team player, and I cherish seeing the camaraderie she enjoys with her fellow players as they unite in playing their best game!“Champions keep playing until they get it right.” Billie Jean King

It was truly delightful collaborating once again with my sellers at 11016 Crossland Dr. in Canyon Creek. Having initially purchased the home through my listing, our communication has spanned several years, with intermittent discussions about potential moves and opportunities.The buyers, who had been renting within the community, encountered setbacks in their quest for a new home over the past couple of years. However, with the steadfast determination of their buyer's agent, they persisted in their search until finding the perfect fit. As first-time homebuyers, they eagerly seized the opportunity this spring and emerged victorious in a competitive multiple-offer situation, a win-win outcome for both the seller and themselves.Understanding my sellers' need to relocate to San Antonio, we f...

On July 1st, 2023, a significant milestone unfolded as my client, accompanied by his father and myself, gathered with Katelyn Zimmerman, the New Home Advisor at Tri-Pointe Homes in the Heritage subdivision. Anticipation hung in the air as my client, embarking on his first home-buying journey, resolved to invest in a new construction home. The Meriden Floorplan spoke to him as well as the lot, and the vibrant community, his decision was resolute.Guided by Katelyn's adeptness, we navigated through the intricacies of paperwork seamlessly, being able to see everything on her large overhead screen and ended with signing DocuSign after review. Drawing from my years of experience in real estate I found Katelyn and the Tri-Pointe Homes team to be models of professionalism, orchestrating a purch...
