We have a NEW healthy grocery store option in Richardson, Texas Jay & I went shopping at the new Natural Grocer http://www.naturalgrocers.com/ at the corner of Coit & Campbell in Richardson last week. We found a clean organized store with great prices.  The prices we saw were lower than the other well known organic food store.  They carry all the brands you would expect from an organic food store. The staff was helpful and nice.  Go check out the new store and help support this name company in our city.  I look forward to my next shopping trip!

The Annual 4th of July Celebration for the City of Richardson is actually held on July 4 this year.  There is stage entertainment that will start at 6:45pm.  The Richardson Community Band will perform at 8:45pm and the Fireworks will display around 9:45pm. You are allowed to bring outside food and drinks.  Also, don't forget chairs or blankets.  Breckinridge Park is located just South of Renner and Brand.  You may park at Renner and Shiloh to take the free shuttle over there.  I can usually see them from my front yard, but we might take Alyssa to see how she reacts to all the lights and colors up close.

We just helped our Buyer purchase 711 S Weatherred! Here's what she said about working with us on her recent purchase;  I first met Jay and Mindy in 2004.  I had contacted them about one of their listings and they suggested meeting for coffee at a convenient Starbucks to get to know me and what I was looking for in a home.  This was my first hint of their commitment to their clients.  They were truly interested in finding the perfect home for me.  This spring I decided to move  back to my Richardson Heights roots - a 1950's pier and beam with hardwoods.  So I called the Richardson Heights experts - Team Robbins!  This is one of the hottest markets in North Dallas and many of the homes were out of my price range.  Jay and Mindy to the rescue - they left no stone unturned.   I am now the ...

Would you like to see a dog park in Richardson? I think it would be a nice neighborhood socializing spot.  Dallas and Plano both have dog parks.  We have plenty of parks to choose from and plenty of acreage at many of the city parks.  Would you visit the dog park, if Richardson created one?

 I believe Richardson should be on the list. Jay & I have lived in Richardson since 2000. We purchased our first home in Richardson Heights. So far, we have purchased a total 4 houses in Richardson Heights (one in Richardson Heights Estate on the creek) and we will be closing on the 5th (this will be an investment property) in Richardson Heights next month. We have lived in 3 of the homes and improved each property more extensively as we move up. We really enjoy living and investing in Richardson Heights! If you're interested in Richardson or Richardson Heights real estate for next home contact us. We have inside knowledge of this area.

Apartment living can be great for those who are trying to establish themselves and break away from that "Kid" persona.This little mortgage fiasco that we are currently experiencing has made renting an apartment more expensive.The reason for this is because there 3 types of people out there:1. People Who Do Not Make Enough Money To Own A Home2. People Who Can Not Get Approved For a Loan Due To Credit Issues3. People who read the negative headlines about the NATIONAL REAL ESTATE NEWS, and think that buying a home here the Dallas/Fort Worth area would be a bad investment.Unfortunately I can not help people who are in group number 1. I wish I could go to your place of business and ask them to give you a raise but I can't.I can help group number 2 by referring them to a credit repair company...

As a listing agent, when I have a listing priced at $182,000, why do I care that the buyer only wants to pay $165,000 for a house?  I had a listing that closed a couple of weeks ago, but negotiations were a little difficult.  We were listed at a very competitive $182k for a 2700 sqft home built in 2002.  I know buyers in many parts of the country are drooling over that price!I get a call from a buyers' agent asking if my seller would take $165k.  I tell her she can write up an offer and I'll present it, but that it seems pretty low for this house and not sure how the seller would react to it.  Of course I knew how the seller would react because I prepare my sellers at our initial listing appointment.  I run through several scenarios with my sellers so they know what to expect, the good ...
