  Recently, I stepped forward in faith and filed for an open local school board seat. Many have asked me why I felt compelled to do this. Trust me, I have thought long and hard and know that I have made a well-thought-out decision. My reasons are numerous for running for this position.  I love my community and know this is how I can serve the students, teachers, and families in our area. I moved back to my hometown of Granbury, Texas four years ago. This is a community where I received my Jr. High and High School education! Granbury ISD prepared me very well for life after high school. Before my real estate career 16 years ago, I was a high school Biology teacher. I have first-hand experience in the classroom teaching a core subject. I have a child in this school district who just enter...

How Our City Responded to a ProtestThis past weekend, our normally quiet little historic town experienced two days of back to back protests. Both of these events were planned in advance, and therefore, the city was able to plan and prepare. As a business and building owner on our town square, we were of course interested in what to expect.  What I can report is I have never been more proud of the town where I reside. Our law enforcement agencies were extremely prepared, had coordinated efforts on all fronts, and exhibited extreme professionalism throughout the events. Our Chief of Police stepped up and all of the people marching, business owners, and citizens experienced an event with absolutely no incidents. I was impressed by those who marched. They were allowed to speak from their he...

Agents must have a thorough knowledge of these issues in order to properly represent a farm and ranch transaction. Therefore, it is imperative for client...

Special Government Home Renovation Loan Program using FHA 203k Renovation Loans in Granbury TX.Many people are not aware of a special government loan program that is part of the Federal Housing Administration or FHA (a department within HUD). A buyer or existing home owner can do meaningful amounts of remodeling or updates to their existing home without having a higher cost second lien thanks to this special FHA loan program.However, this loan program doesn't allow for "luxury items" in your home such as a swimming pool, hot tub, or other accessories. Although, you can repaint, replace flooring and appliances, add a room to an existing structure (which can add to value tremendously as you increase the square feet of your home) as well as remodel cabinetry in kitchens and bathrooms.This ...
