Soliciting in Bryan College Station

Soliciting in the Bryan, College Station area can pose as a threat to community members.

Farm Patch in Bryan College Station – Brazos Valley Produce

Years ago my mom used to take my brother and me to the local farmers market in town. I remember the excitement of riding in the rickety basket being pushed by colorful fruits and vegetables as we loaded up an entire cart full of produce. We would buy enough fruit to overflow our fruit bowl at home, then stop by the plant section where my mom would pick out a few potted plants for gifts […]

Driving through the twin cities a couple weeks ago, Bryan and College Station, it was not unlikely that you ran upon a lemonade stand or two.

Don’t Mess With the Texas State Flower

As my family drove back from Colorado to College Station over spring break, and we entered the great state of Texas, we were reminded just how beautiful the fields are with colorful, wild flowers and especially the Texas Bluebonnets. My youngest son asks, “How did bluebonnets begin?”  “Why do the bluebonnets always grow along the sides of the highway?”  Well this did not stop my son here, this lead my family on a search of […]

Aggieland let’s help keep our neighbors warm this winter!

The saying that Bryan/College Station is in a bubble is pretty true to an extent.  While the rest of the country has high unemployment rates, lower retail sales, and a housing crunch, Bryan/College Station is an area that trends better than a majority of the country!  I have sold more homes this year than I did last year, so I know that we aren’t hurting too bad in B/CS! Unfortunately a lot of times we […]
