The Easter Bunny in Canyon Creek drew a flash mob!
This was the last year for Hailey Stout, our granddaughter, who’s been the reigning Easter Bunny for Canyon Creek’s annual Easter Egg Hunt.

As a real estate agent I prefer a balanced market but unfortunately I have no control over that scenario. What I do have control over is systems and best practices that adapt to any market. Even though inventory is dangerously low in Austin I have been able to find my buyers the right home with sellers accepting my buyer’s offers.
Is it easy? No! How do I do it? It all starts by setting up a notification process from our MLS to my buyer and me … (73 comments)

“Foodie Fridays” in Austin
It's time for something different! How about some Sushi this weekend?  I'm recommending a restaurant that has consistent rave reviews despite its location in a strip mall next to a Party City! It can be a little on the pricey side so be prepared, or you may want to stop in around lunch time and take some extra time to linger during lunch break and enjoy a sensational meal.
