While in our meeting last week, we discussed many ideas for 2013 and what we would like to accomplish as a team.  Of course, one of our goals is to remain your local Real Estate experts.  Another goal we discussed was to give back locally by hosting our monthly meetings at a local restaurant, and then writing a brief blog on the place.     Our first adventure landed us at Gerhard's German Restaurant, located at 222 W Hickory St in Denton, TX.  We have attached a photo map where Gerhard's is in reference to a few different neighborhoods in Denton.   Gerhard's features German staples such as:  Brat & Sausage specialties, Spaetzle (kind of like gnocchi pasta dishes), Schnitzel (breaded cutlets), Rouladen (thinly sliced meat wrapped and stuffed with bacon and onions), and of course, an exte...

IT'S ALWAYS FUN COMING HOME! I just returned from my 30 year college Homecoming this weekend.  What a joy it was touring the campus and remembering some really great times.  I walked the campus, went to my old dorm, visited the bookstore and of course went to the game. I met up with one of my classmates and former roommates.  She looked great and we talked for hours catching up on our lives.  Isn't it amazing how 30 years can go by yet you can just pick right up where you left off?  Amazing to me! Yes, you can come home!  Of course a lot has changed but we all have too as well.  The main thing is reconnecting and staying in touch. When I left North Texas State University as it was called back then, we did not have email, cell phones, Facebook or Twitter.  It was difficult for our genera...

Denton, TX 76210 News Triple Digits: Does it seem a tad bit warm these days? Well, that is because we are celebrating the 13th day of triple-digit heat for North Texas. Yay.

The Preserve at Pecan Creek in Denton, TX 76208 You'll often wonder why or where some communities received their name?   As I was told by one of the area's largest developers today, she picked that name because she liked it.  Well The Preserve at Pecan Creek in this case is very fitting.  It is lush and natural and filled with trees and green areas, bordering Pecan Creek that feeds into  Lake Lewisville .  This a neat hidden gem of a community, just off I35E in the Southern part of Denton.   Mostly hidden from the highway and commercial area, but close  enough to be really convenient to the highway, Denton and Dallas.   There are currently approximately 750 homesites in  The Preserve at Pecan Creek  and new home builders still active.  The master developer is Forestar and the current bu...
