Looking for a Great Place for BBQ in Corpus Christi TX? I definitely have the place for you.   I have lived here over 10 years now and have eaten at almost every BBQ place in town.   One of the top places I would highly recommend is Silverado Smokehouse located at 4522 Weber Rd.    I had eaten there several years ago and had forgotten about it, mainly because I am mostly drawn to Mexican food here. Luckily, I had a Real Estate Continueing education class a few weeks ago and it was at Silverado Smokehouse.   Just the smell alone drives you into the front door from the parking lot.   Since this restaurant is located in Corpus Christi, there is plenty of parking for everyone.   There is friendly service and the atmosphere is just like going to a "Home Town BBQ Joint".    They have all of t...

Buyers........A Good Thing To Know When Purchasing a Home There is a lot to know when buying a home.  On my list of things to know is ...Inspections - Who to hire and what Inspections to have done. Whether you are buying a home, condo, townhome, commercial property, or even vacant land or a ranch, buyers need to do their due diligence and make sure they have the most information they can regarding the property they are purchasing.  The last thing you want to happen is find out about something after you move in, or after you purchase.   Here is a List of Inspections I highly recommend for Buyers in Corpus Christi Texas 1.

The Beauty of Living in The City by the Sea - Corpus Christi This picture was taken by a client of mine earlier this week.  It is a beautiful sunrise located at the packery channel on beautiful North Padre Island.  I love the way she not only captured the sunrise, but also a bird, possibly a pelican or egret, flying just over the sun.  The Packery Channel is a great way for people who love to fish to take their boats out to the Gulf of Mexico.  Or you can just fish from the jetties.   This is just one of the beauties of Corpus Christi aka "Sparkling City by the Sea."   If you want to make the move, or check out homes for sale in Corpus Christi TX Click Here.Or if you want to Sell Your Corpus Christi Home Click Here. Brenda J.
