I love a fresh start... You know the feeling you got when you went shopping for school supplies in August? The way it feels when you used to crack open that Trapper Keeper - the cute purple one with the kitty on the front? You know the feeling you get when you tie on a new pair of running shoes a...
McKinney TX is a North Dallas suburb located about 25 miles from the Big D. While we may be a good 35 to 45 minute commute from the Urban downtown Dallas area, we're not exactly all "in the sticks" either. Some of my relocating clients often ask me about acreage properties in McKinney, large lots...
Making a move isn't always an easy decision. With a single person, it's not so bad. You either accept a promotion in a new city, or decide to move to be closer to family, the beach, friends or whatever. No one to talk it over with. No need to have a family meeting.

I'm no different. So when I saw the Kodak Moment contest, I knew I had to share the most poignant photo I've ev...
For homeowners in the McKinney TX and surrounding Collin County area, December 31 brings not only New Years Eve celebrations, but also a bill for real estate taxes. Wah...whaaa...I know, I know...I'm a Debbie Downer. So why bring it up? If you are buying or selling a home during this time of year...
Rain Camp Houston has come and gone. This was my second Rain Camp this year (the first being Dallas) and I was not disappointed IN THE LEAST with the material that was presented. Why go back a second time this year? If you're wondering why you should or shouldn't consider going to another Rain Ca...
As someone who has recently become interested in Texas Coastal Real Estate, I found this article by my colleague Bill Cherry to be quite fascinating. Thanks to Bill for the insight into the complex market that is Galveston Real Estate! A good portion of Galveston Island has a seawall that somewha...
My colleague here in DFW, Gary Woltal, wrote a GREAT piece on the role of Social Media in our lives and work. We all fit into a category/role and we all must find the perfect balance in order to have success with it. Enjoy this read and come back to it again and again, as he also has shared with ...
