  1.        San Antonio

As a San Antonio native I can say that this city is definitely one to visit! Only an 1 and a ½ from Austin this city is worth the drive. You not only have sites for historic buffs such as the Alamo, Davy Crockett Hotel (rumored to be super haunted), and San Fernando De Bexar Cathedral but also great places to eat and drink! The Riverwalk is a landmark in San Antonio, that everybody should at least visit once. But if you are more into hip places you can even try south town, which has grown to accommodate some of the best food and coffee shops, San Antonio has to offer. Don’t forget the old Pearl Brewing which has switched from an actual brewery to a new and hip art/ food district. Even check

Hello again to all of you homeowners, tenants, prospective buyers, and real-estate investors. Before you check the “Talking Real Estate” monthly enewsletter, Summer is here and has its own home maintenance checklist in Central Texas. Here are a few items to consider during July. I got some great new ideas on increasing heating efficiency from a June newsletter reader and added a few below:

  •       Set your mower on the highest setting so you do not cut the grass too short and expose it to drought and weeds.
  •       Make sure your foliage gets plenty of water during hot summer days. Water early in the day, but not necessarily every day. Plants prefer a good soaking a few times a week rather than a light, daily drizzle.
  •       Reverse the setting on

If you haven't stepped outside in a while than I'm here to warn you that the dog days of summer has arrived. It's hot! It's only the 12th of July and Travis County has already experienced a Heat Advisory Warning. It comes as no surprise that July would be selected as National Ice Cream Month. Did I say it was hot outside? It's the summer and high temperatures are to be expected so we can't let the heat control our summer activities. 

If you find yourself out and about in the Austin area developing sweat beads then open your GPS and head to one of these fine eateries!

Well hello summer! We've been expecting you! Yes, summers in Texas are hot and should be spent next to water eating ice cream, flavored ice or sipping or favorite iced lemonade or sweet tea. Tea and lemonade are a staple for a hot Texas summer but why don't we mix things up a bit? When my husband first told me about bananas and peanut butter I wasn't immediately sold. I don't have much of an imagination and just assumed peanut butter was best used for PB&J sandwiches and Reese's Peanut Butter Cups. Now, I like a little variety in my life so I've opened myself up to the idea of mixing bananas with peanut butter and was delighted to try this recipe! It's easy and keeps your body cool!

Populated with towering oak trees, quaint bungalows, and down-to-earth residents, the historic Hyde Park neighborhood is a true Austin gem. Just north of the University of Texas campus, Hyde Park is located near the city center but is slightly removed from the hustle and bustle.

Located in Central Austin, Hyde Park is defined by W. 38 Street to the south, W. 51 Street to the north, Duval Street to the east, and Guadalupe Street to the west. It is situated just north of The University of Texas and borders the neighborhoods of Hancock and North Loop. Hyde Park traces its origins back to 1891 and is considered to be Austin's first suburb.

Austin is growing exponentially every day. This city just seems to get bigger and bigger. Our real estate market is very hot right now, especially with all these new, fabulous people moving here! According to a new article Austin’s “statewide population to be at about 29 million, and in 2016 and 2017, he said, “We added about 1,000 new Texans every day” (KXAN).

As a fellow Austinite (at least for the last two years) I may be annoyed that my traffic will only get worse, but I am overjoyed to welcome all these new people and their ideas. Austin is such an amazing place to live, I wouldn’t mind staying for a very long time! But this brings up the problem of where should I live? Austin has many different hubs of
