CB United NW ~An office who plays together stays together
 
Our Broker (leader) Teresa Recar made it happen! She planned a fun Coldwell Banker United NW Austin Office Holiday Gathering to toast the season and applaud a very successful year!! Chez Zee, an original American Bistro, was the setting.
 

 
Sharon Watkins the owner (and special friend of Teresa’s) graciously allowed us to host the party in the back room (formerly the patio) and we had a wonderful celebration! If you’re looking for great food, orgasmic desserts and just plain fun you need to drop by … (13 comments)

2014-2015 Austin PT50 Award Ceremony ~ Top 50 announced ~Congrats to all!

It was a chilly morning on December 17, 2014 in Austin for the PT50 Awards Ceremony at the Sheraton Hotel downtown. The program was fun with videos compiled by PT50 of various members telling quick stories of their first sale plus an Austin Title video with endorsements from PT50 members and videos of selfies and bloopers!
Amber Thomas, you do an extraordinary job and love the new PT50 website which will be rolled out in January 2015! Thank you for the exciting marketing concepts...Design, delivery and everything in-between made available … (16 comments)

I love surprises...especially made by Godiva!
 

 
 
A package came the other day to my office and I thought it was one of the gifts we ordered on-line for the grandkids. I was pleasantly surprised when I opened it to find a Godiva medley from one of my clients!

Texas Trash~Not Your Ordinary Holiday Snack Mix!
 
In Texas many of us like to make our “Texas Trash” for the holidays! It’s not your ordinary snack mix! It’s A BIG, BOLD FLAVOR just like the State of Texas! What’s in it? My blend is made of cereals, pretzels, nuts and a spicy buttery mixed in for a salty taste that is indeed addictive! You can be imaginative and create your own concoction.
 
The Holidays would not be the same without me making a batch or two!
 
Here is the recipe for mine:

SOLD in the Canyon Creek Subdivision 10214 Prism Drive~ NW Austin TX 78726
Homes in Canyon Creek Subdivision are getting lots of attention and move quickly due to the low inventory in NW Austin. These buyers acted decisively in a multiple offer position because they knew quality deals sell fast in the North West Austin real estate market.Closing this chapter in my seller’s life was important. They were motivated and followed my instructions on pricing their home to sell! They were original owners and now in their 80’s and ready to simplify their life.

Coffee House Poetry ~4th grade poets~at Canyon Creek Elementary in NW Austin
 
I’ve been serving on the Canyon Creek Elementary Site Based Advisory Board as a business partner for 17 years since the school opened. As a former teacher I’m interested to keep up with how our community school serves our students.

I was so interested in the annual Fourth grade enrichment activity I asked to see the decorated room where the “Coffee House Poetry” took place.
The walls in the room were draped in black sheets and there was a small platform with a podium and a microphone. … (17 comments)

nw austin: 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)

Pay It Forward~ Foundation Communities~Austin Texas
I love the challenge this month in Active Rain. There are many things we can do to make a difference this holiday season. Getting involved and “Paying it Forward” is a mindset that should be carried throughout the whole year!
Our NW Austin Coldwell Banker United office encourages this way of thinking and we collectively volunteer and contribute generously to give back to the communities we serve. In 2013 we contributed $6,200 for the American Cancer Society and spent 5,100+hours volunteering in our communities.  I’ll be anxious to see our numbers tallied for … (29 comments)
