  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

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.

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

I am here to tell you about the wonderous onboarding program that we have established to ensure the success of all of our agents. It has morphed into an eight meeting series, where we meet once or twice a week to work one-on-one with the agents to prepare them for this business. I think that this really makes us stand out in the crowd as far as all real estate companies are concerned. So let's get right into it...

Meeting 1 - The Essentials

I named this meeting the essentials because I believe these are the bare minimums the agent needs to know how to use at our company. In this meeting, we (one of our trained onboarding specialist) goes over how the agent gets into his/her professional email provided to them. We assist them with adding their

Why Do I Need a New Lender’s Policy?

The original lender’s title insurance policy protects the lender’s interest on the original loan.

From the lender’s standpoint, a refinanced loan is no different than any other mortgage loan. In addition, if the loan is sold in the secondary market, investors like Fannie Mae will require the security of title insurance on the property. The good news is the consumer receives a discount on lender's policies for refinance during the first seven years of the loan. If your refinanced loan is with the same lender as your original loan, your
