It has been a busy week and we have been pressed to keep up with a lot of work for San Antonio, Texas Buyers and Sellers.  It's been a long time since we we able to take a bit of time off and I am taking a few minutes to daydream of vacations past.  One of our favorite places is Old San Juan.  Ju...

We hear a lot about Sellers not having enough time to make small changes in their house.  Often it's not the time, it's the expense and the belief that it won't really matter THAT much to the Buyer. I promise you, the small items do add up in effect.   Case in point: Those outdated brass door kno...

This front yard looks so perfect - but, is it? I had just posted a small snipe about Homeowners (Property Owners), Associaitons, when I remembered what I had snapped on a recent drive through one Northwest San Antonio Neighborhood.  Although I am opposed to people not maintaining their homes, I a...

I love to see a home construction project pull together all the way from when the lot is first staked.  We are now several weeks onto this San Antonio project, but the excitement continues as the 5" wide-plank hickory-colored wood flooring, carpeting, granite counters in New Venetian Gold and sta...

Today was Steve's birthday and while he is on the phone talking with one of our grown-up kids, I am thinking about what a busy day it was, and how different it is from how I had planned it!   I like to take Steve on a surprise birthday trip - usually on a cruise, but this year due to lender diffi...

My mom, is a former second-grade teacher.  This small fact means that I have been subjected to more rhymes, prose, haiku - you name it!  Although there is a lot of nonsense to those nursery rhymes; if you are selling your home, whether or not it was just built on Monday, it had better be "fair of...
