Real Estate Broker/Owner - Robin Rogers, Silverbridge Realty, San Antonio, Texas
Real estate in the San Antonio metro area, the foothills of the Texas Hill Country, and on the Guadalupe River. My market area includes the northern half of San Antonio (Alamo Heights, Fort Sam Houston, Shavano Park, Hollywood Park, and Stone Oak) and northeast (Randolph AFB, Universal City, Windcrest, Schertz, and Cibolo) to New Braunfels, including Bexar, Guadalupe, and Comal Counties. My blog also covers photography; houses and homes; investments and rental properties; pets and wildlife; birds, butterflies, and flowers in my organic garden; travel; fun stuff; and whatever else takes my fancy.
Why the confusion on whether this home is in Cibolo or Schertz? The two fast-growing cities in Texas (and the US) are side-by-side and share a top-rated school district.

But I couldn't get it to play, so I have created a virtual tour in YouTube as well. If that d...
This morning I was pouring cereal into a bowl, and the rattling noise made one of my cats run into the kitchen, thinking I was going to give her an early lunch of dry cat food. I kindly told her in a high-pitched voice, "This isn't kitty food, this is mommy food!" And then it struck me: what is t...
San Antonio is known for the Alamo and its beautiful River Walk, which play starring roles in the annual Fiesta de San Antonio. Fiesta brings people from near and far, both locals and tourists, to join in such events as Night in Old San Antonio, featuring food and drink from local eateries and ar...
One of the principal attractions of home ownership is the fact that it provides a very significant set of financial benefits.While this is true at any time of year, many of them become particularly obvious during tax season, so this is a good time for a quick reminder. The most obvious benefit is...
They should be feeling pretty upbeat. February was another good month for builders and home sellers in the San Antonio-New Braunfels metro*. Inventory is still low at 4.2 months worth of supply, with 1,454 single-family homes sold in February. Another 1,548 homes were pending sale, and the averag...

What You Should Know About Your Home and Your 2013 Taxes By Dona DeZube These days few things start a fight on Capitol Hill faster than taxes. Despite the fact that three important tax ben...
It’s getting harder and harder to get a deal on a foreclosure in the San Antonio metro. There are fewer foreclosed properties on the market every month in Bexar County, continuing a decline that began in the fall of 2012. Because of demand outstripping supply, and the increase of home prices in ...
