Location, location, location! CB JENI Homes has just announced a new townhome community in Richardson, Texas. Located just east of the Spring Valley DART Station (click on map below for larger version), these modern townhomes are going to sell quickly! We met with the builder yesterday and were told that sizes will range from 1300 to 1800 square feet and prices will start in the mid-$140's! This will include granite counters, site built cabinets and much more. We hope to have copies of the floorplans and more details in a week or so. We offer a New Home Rebate!

So you plugged through the holidays, attended the parties and potlucks, maxed out whatever budget you had and managed to survive into 2012. You had business to tend to, goals to set, new people to meet and places to go. And, now, it's mid-February, and you find that you are still in a funk.    I know that whenever I am in a funk, I feel disengaged and frustrated with the general day to day. Too little sun and I become lethargic. And indulging on a 'funk' day to hold a pity party for one may not do the trick. So if you find yourself in a similar situation, unmotivated and locked in place, try seeking out a healthy outlet to release a little. Get Moving - It may seem like the last thing you want to do, but getting out of a doomsicle requires being a little active. Go for a walk, a jog, do...

An open letter to customers and clients in the real estate game.    Look. I like you. And hopefully you like me. We don't have to agree on everything, but let's go ahead, from here on out, and respect each other as individuals, knowing that we can't possibly understand the extent of the others experiences without having been along for the ride.   As a client, you hired me to do the job. By signing some papers and working with me, you have implied a trust in my abilities to help you reach your goal, whether that is to buy or sell a home. And just as you would put your trust in a dentist, lawyer or trainer, my services are best rendered when you listen to my advice, heed my warnings and follow prompts.   You see, real estate is a funny thing. We in the industry agree to complete certain c...

This photograph was taken by my love on a recent extended weekend getaway to Albuquerque and Cuba, New Mexico. It's next to impossible to get away from the hustle of day to day, but so appreciated when it happens.  ~~~   I have to go now… Rooting for my Texas Rangers in Game 1 of the World Series and they need my undivided attention.

Every so often, it's nice to send a reminder out about the importance of having proper representation when making large financial decisions. Just recently, I learned of two real estate transactions that did not proceed as planned because the Buyers did not have someone to advocate their needs. So, just in case you were hit by a large boulder and forgot the importance of having a guiding light in the largest monetary purchase you are likely to make in your lifetime, let me remind you. With a real estate agent, Buyer's will receive: Extensive Needs Analysis : Some form of communication will open the door for a professional to learn about you, your life situation and what you are looking for in the home search to narrow down your options. Not only the type of stucture or bedroom count, thi...

ABOCA'S ITALIAN GRILL     One of my favorite restaurants in the Dallas area is Aboca's Italian Grill in Richardson, TX.  Three years ago, a friend introduced me to this exceptional casual Italian Grill.  Ever since that day, I have made a monthly pilgrimage to this local favorite, to savor some of the best Italian dishes I have ever tasted! Without a doubt, the owner/chef's Veal Osso Buco is the best of the best!  The veal shank is slow cooked in a delicious wine sauce and served with risotto and colorful steamed vegetables. I guarantee that the flavor of this dish will linger in your memory until your next visit! Portions are generous. Even the man in your life will have leftovers to take home!  This dish is so popular that it is a good idea to call ahead and reserve your Osso Bocco.  ...

Richardson is an excellent suburb to consider for those families looking to relocate to an immediate suburb of Dallas. With it's close proximity to Dallas and the Northern cap of the Metroplex, Richardson offers plenty of transportation routes, with major thoroughfares and the DART rail running through.   Small businesses are abundant in Richardson and while there is not a major Mall within the city limits, there are major malls within 5 miles of the city limits offering plenty of shopping options. Restaurants are aplenty within the city of Richardson and nightlife is a simple drive down the road to the smaller suburb of Addison.   Housing is affordable in the city for those looking for both purchase and lease opportunities. Richardson was relatively cushioned from the larger impact of...

Richardson sales were much better than the Dallas/ Ft.Worth area in April. Sales were only down by 2%. There was a drop if 3% in the average sales price and a decline of 9% in the median sales price but these drops appear to be due to more sales in the lower price ranges indicating more first time buyers in the market. The number of new listings declined by 16% but the number of active listings climbed by 13%. The months of inventory now stands at 5.8 months and is one of the lowest in the area. The number of pending sales was flat and this is really good news for next months sales. Sales: 89 Average Sales Price: $168,304 Median Sales Price: $152,500 New Listings: 160 Active Listings: 383 Months of Inventory: 5.8 Pending Sales: 94

Looking for something fun to do this weekend, perhaps in conjunction with your Mother's Day plans? Why not enjoy the festivities of the Cottonwood Art Festival here in Richardson? May 7-8, you and the family can enjoy this free event outdoors with a great list of local artists and craftsmen in attendance. This bi-annual event has been a part of the Richardson arts life for over forty years and continues to be an exciting opportunity to see the handiwork of artists. But don't think it's limited to just art - there will also be a children's area with arts and crafts, plenty of musicians to jam to and food and spirits galore. The Cottonwood Art Festival is held in Cottonwood Park (between Coit and Waterview, just south of Belt Line). Again, it's FREE and a rain or shine event kicking off a...

Have you ever attended an open house at a Robbins listing? If not, you should. We like to go the extra mile, and our open houses are no exception. We always serve food – usually hot BBQ sandwiches or hamburgers right off the grill. We also hold a raffle for a $50 gift card. All you have to do is fill out a card to tell us what you think about the house. I’ve been hearing lately that some neighbors might feel ‘guilty’ about eating free food when they have no intention of buying a house. Please, please, PLEASE come to our open houses. We want to see you and we want you keep our listings in mind for your friends and co-workers. We also need your opinion of our listings to help us improve our service. Watch for our upcoming open house!  We hope to see you soon. Mindy & Jay Robbins
