Christmas is a time for giving and I absolutely love filling stockings with mini gifts that fill the heart with joy! It was our family tradition to open our stocking stuffers on Christmas Eve. Then we were rushed off to bed so Santa can come for cookies and fill the floor with presents under the tree. When I was about 5, I remember sleeping over at my Grandmother’s house on Christmas Eve. In the middle of the night I heard a “Ho Ho Ho” and still believe it was the man himself, Mr. Santa Claus.

“I still believe in Santa Claus. He may not be the one that puts the presents under the tree, but his spirit works through us each time we give freely without expectation and each time we spread

Most people don’t know the first thing about listing their home for sell. As a newbie to the real estate world it took me awhile to understand that agents do not just randomly decide what a house should be sold for.

If it is a hotspot with bars and restaurants or a known unsavory neighborhood; that can really affect the price. For example, if a one bedroom house in Austin is close to downtown that is considered prime real estate and can sell for the same amount as a house in Cedar Park with five bedrooms.

I would like to start with a story. A very recent story. As in the last couple of days. So my husband and I have decided to purchase a new car. My car has lived a good life and I am ready for something safer and new. The car is 12 years old and I wanted a change. We decided on the model and make that we loved, it did not take us very long, we fell in instant love. It actually happened quicker than either of us thought. Then we were left with the problem of what to do with the old car. We initially just wanted to trade it in but the dealership was only going to offer us half of what it was worth, now that makes sense but at the same time it was a little disappointing. Then we decided we should try and sell it. (By the

How do I even start? What do I do now? These are some of the most frequently asked questions while I am sitting across a brand new agent during our onboarding session. I can imagine how daunting this all seems at the beginning. You just got through with school and you passed that test for your license, but then you are thrown into literally figuring out how to run your own business. And how to make money. Now I am no expert, I am not even a realtor, but this transition seems to be the hardest because it just seems to be an abyss of options, that can be scary. As a psychology major, you learn that one of the worst things to happen to your brain is to have too many choices. Now you are done with this structured
