Sunshiny April Fools Day to YOU!

Sunshiny April Fools Day to You! My family and I loaded up and headed out to the park today, Sunday, April 1, 2012, because the weather was absolutely perfect. I thought we would just spend a little bit relaxing and letting the kids get some energy worked out, but something truly spectacular happened instead. As I was there at our lovely Tanglewood Park in Bryan, Texas I had a realization that just really hit home. […]

The recession hurt our nation’s real estate industry.

TEXAS A&M Has Been Yarn Bombed!

“I had to tramp down a dirt road in Bryan, Texas. I remember always hugging and kissing her at the door and then pushing my way in to see what she was cooking for our Sunday lunch. I remember, the musty smell of mothballs hanging in the air mingling with the cherry pie on the kitchen table that I wasn’t allowed to touch until after I had eaten all of my meal. I also remember […]

Facing Mortgage Lenders in Post-Recession America

Let’s face it — the mortgage approval process has changed since our country’s last recession whether you live in Bryan, College Station or New York. And these changes have certainly not made the process any easier. Yet, perhaps the conventional conclusion on which aspect of the process has grown difficult can be set aside. Actually securing mortgage approval isn’t where the complication comes in: it’s the rigorous, wearisome process of meeting the documentation requirements. And […]

Creek Meadows – From the Inside Out

TEXAS AGGIE RING – Nothing is a More Prized Possession

Ring Day, perhaps one of the most memorable days of an Aggies’s life, originated with the class of 1889. Anxious Aggies finally earn the chance to join the world of the ring baring Aggie. The rings worn by all Aggie graduates are exactly the same except for the class year. This acts as a link between all Aggies. Everything on the ring represents the values every ring bearer should hold. The shield represents the desire […]

It’s What’s on the Outside That Counts?

I have always raised my children that it’s what’s on the inside that counts, not the outside; however when it comes to real estate, first impressions are everything!  Just think about it…would you buy a car that had a rebuilt engine and interior if the outside was completely beaten up or the paint was rusted?  Some might say yes because they could have it repainted, but they would want it cheap.  Most would pay more […]
