LIGHTING!  Don't underestimate the importance of lighting! We all know that it's a good idea to leave lights on for showing.  But what about the kind of lighting?  Typically, you might have converted to low-voltage or energy-saving lamps in table lamps and chandeliers and exterior lighting like p...

I am certain that if I live to be 100 years old, there will never be enough orchids to satisfy me.  Their grace and beauty, shapes and colors make them an old favorite.  I first tried growing them when I lived in the San Francisco Bay area.  Of course, the weather there is perfect - if you can ju...

As a real estate Broker and Realtor, here in San Antonio, Texas, when I meet with Sellers to discuss putting their homes on the market, there is a consistent oddity that I notice. They have not recently serviced their air conditioning or heating systems!  OK, so we only use the heat for a month h...

I hope that all you Dads had a wonderful Father's Day! We often talk about what a hard job it is to be a Mom, but sometimes forget the other side of the equation: Dads. It's a tough job here in the brave, new world as Dads struggle to find time with their kids and keep their work-life moving forw...

Sometimes, it's hard to get your home shown. One day this past week, we had granite counters installed in our San Antonio home that we are selling.  The process was made inconvenient by Sara's illness and the fact that she had to vacate the house for a showing, right after I managed an appointmen...
