Ringing Up Evanston IL Friends in the Rain~ Noah Seidenberg
 
I’m so glad Debbie Reynolds offered this “Ringing and Singing in the Rain”  challenge this month...it nudged me to contact some Active Rain Members I’d been wanting to visit with but haven’t made the time.
 
I called Noah Seidenberg and he answered on my first try! I’ve been following Noah’s post for some time. I remember when he lost his 91 year old father, Henry (his best friend) in the fall. I could tell from his posts how saddened he was and my heart went out to him. … (24 comments)

coldwell banker united: Is your Broker a Leader or a Manager? - 12/09/14 02:44 PM
 
Is your Broker a Leader or a Manager?
 
Do you know the difference between a “Leader” and a “Manager” ? The definition of a Leader is a person who guides or directs a group. The definition of a Manager is a person responsible for controlling or administering all or part of a company or similar organization.
 
For the longest time I thought these two labels were interchangeable. They are not! Think about your Broker for a minute and what best describes their function.
 
If it’s a "Manager" I’d be looking for a new Brokerage firm. Our “Leader”, Teresa … (22 comments)

Every year the gals in our NW Austin Coldwell Banker United office plan a “Girl’s Christmas Party!” Everyone brings a gift (and there are some good ones), a dish to share and a bottle of cheer!

The old fashioned white elephant way..if you want to choose someone else’s gift they chose….. go for it...but it will be frozen after 3 exchanges! This always leads to some friendly interactions!

coldwell banker united: There is a difference between a Thanksgiving and Christmas cactus! - 11/04/14 02:25 PM
There is a difference between a Thanksgiving  and Christmas cactus!
 
I was surprised to find my Thanksgiving cactus (Schlumbergera truncata)   blooming this past weekend! But the weather is cooler and they thrive and bloom when it’s cooler.
 
In case you didn’t know there is a difference between the Thanksgiving cactus and the Christmas Cactus (Schlumbergera bridgesii). The difference lies in the shape of the stem segments! The flattened stem segments are called phylloclades. The stem segments on the Thanksgiving cactus each have 2-4 saw-toothed serrations. They are rounded on the Christmas cactus.
 
Since the Thanksgiving cactus likes … (37 comments)

coldwell banker united: Are Texas metro areas overvalued? - 10/29/14 01:16 PM
Are Texas metro areas overvalued?
 
Recently the media has picked up articles stating Texas Metro areas are overvalued.  So far this appears to be false as we see the demand in Texas metro areas exceeding supply. This is quite simply Economics 101. I’m sure if you looked at particular communities and certain listings there are some overvalued but on the whole the overall market is not overvalued.

In Austin (which led the list of being overvalued) we have the longest entitlement process of approval for new construction which means the supply will take a longer time to catch up with the … (18 comments)

SOLD in the Canyon Creek Subdivision in NW Austin TX 78726
 
Homes located in the Enclave gated section in the Canyon Creek Subdivision are sought after because there are very few that come on market. It is fun assisting sellers who understand what it takes to get their home sold. My sellers are savvy and tend to move every 3-4 years so are very familiar with the de-cluttering needed and pricing their home right.

 
I was the listing agent when the buyers purchased the home and they came to me when they decided to sell because of … (13 comments)
