…that’s the only way. Stay consistent, happy, and focused.
On January 23rd JBGoodwin held our annual award ceremony at the Club at Sonterra in Stone Oak. As always, it was a festive event comprised of laughter, memories and words of wisdom. This year, I was fortunate to win a character award, The Most Bubbly Agent. I accepted the nod with open arms, as I take pride in my outgoing and positive personality. I’m a morning person. I see the glass half-full, and for me there are lessons, no mistakes.
One of my life motto’s is, life is a journey not an obstacle. I like to apply this same rule to all my real estate transactions and my relationships with my clients. No two transcations will ever be alike, that’s for sure!
Moral of the story
Be resourceful and know your surroundings, while continuing to be bubbly.
Also, know your limits and capabilities. Last week I closed on a transaction, representing the buyer who happened to be a first time home owner. The transaction started on a high note, and days of smooth sailing. Unfortunately, some unforeseen events took place one week before the closing date. I was on the verge of failure…but then again failure is not trying, so I TRIED! Oh boy…I gave it my all! After some minimal moments of anger management, I gathered my composure and reminded myself that my client is and always will be my number one priority. In this case, my client was in love with a home he planned to move into and it was my responsibility to make sure that happened.
When they say it takes a village…it really does. As an agent…a REALTOR®…it is impossible to work a transaction on your own. There are so many aspects to a transaction, and with them comes a team. I’m proud to say my team came through for me last week, and assisted me in overcoming multiple obstacles.
I went out this weekend to Paramour, enjoyed a glass of rose and decided to be bubbly. This picture shows how happy I was for the weekend. Can you guess my favorite color?
My goal is to help my clients buy or sell their real estate properties, my priority however, is and always will be my client.
Committed to help with all your real estate needs.
Strong Market, Weak Inventory?
Many things in life are based on an opinion, even facts. Data and reports area crucial in realizing the reality, and what is happening all around us. According to the attached article from this past weekend in the San Antonio Express News, we’re running out of homes in San Antonio!
In always keeping my glass half-full, I like to believe there’s an ideal home for everyone, if you’re motivated enough to actually look. This past weekend, I met a new client, viewed just over a dozen properties, found one he likes, and we’re now under contract. He’ll be resting in his new home in a few weeks, and you can too.
I love a sweet challenge, and working with buyer’s is something I take pride and enjoyment in. Drop a pin, anywhere on the map of San Antonio, and we can start a new search.

Giving Back To Our Community
Last week we hosted our annual “Santa To A Senior” day. We gathered as a family, and delivered gifts, Christmas carols, conversation, hugs, and love to the members of the Living Days Adult Daycare Center. The photo that’s included in this post is of myself with Santa Claus and my new friend, Edward. His smile warmed my heart and soul. Edward, was the last person to visit with Santa that day. He waited patiently as dozens of people chatted with Santa before him, and I was reminded that the beauties of life are attained with patience…just like Edwards smile.
Below is a passage from Deepak Chopra. His words about compassion are a reminder that we are all one:
I will see a stranger today through the eyes of compassion…
I will remind myself that this stranger has parents and people who love her, just like me.
I will remind myself that this stranger has moments of joy, just like me.
I will remind myself that this stranger has moments of anguish and suffering, just like me.
I will remind myself that this stranger will one day grow old, just like me.
I will remind myself that this stranger will go through the cycles of illness and recovery, just like me.
I will remind myself that this stranger will one day die, just like me.
Through the eyes of compassion, I will know this stranger, not as a stranger anymore, but as a living soul, just like me.
Happy Holidays and New Year To All
Thursday, December 7, 2017 , It snowed in San Antonio, Texas and throughout other parts of the country.
For some cities, it was an ordinary day and the beginning to Winter.
In San Antonio, and across Southern Texas, it was a miracle!
We’ve experienced ice, sleet, hail, and light snow throughout the years, but Thursday was a magical sight as the snow landed on the ground.
Everyone stayed up late, taking pictures, building snowmen, making snow angels, and taking in the clean, frosty air.
My family and I moved to San Antonio in 1984, and in 1985 the city took in thirteen inches of snow.
I was seven then, and this time around in 2017 finally old enough to drive in the snow!
Take a look at pictures from 1985 from MySA.com: SA Snow Storm Of 1985
Sometimes the little things like drops of snow, remind us how beautiful and fun life is. The holiday season is a time we celebrate, but it’s
also a time to reflect, give back, and lend a helping hand. No other time of year speaks to “no place like home” as the month of December.
I want to take a moment to wish everyone, especially those reading this blog, a very merry Christmas and holiday season.
I’m here and committed to help with your real estate needs. Please don’t hesitate to contact me, even if it’s just a question you need answered.
And, if you’re beginning your search for a new home, let me be your guide.
Warm Wishes To All.

- Are you paying too much for rent?
- Are you happy with your current home?
