Vacation Homes



A vacation home does not necessarily have to be for summer only! Buy close enough to home and make it your regular escape. Time to make and share some new memories.

Generations Defined

Seems every day we hear about millennials – and relatively soon, we can expect to hear more conversations about Generation Z as they prepare to manage the world and take their place in history.

I decided it was time to recheck the “age years” for each group. I understand some modifications were made and I suppose this is as good a time as any to point out these time definitions are not an exact science. Research suggests that the time frame is more of a tool to analyze the shifts in how each age group experiences the world. Experiences in technology, economics, politics and social views change over time – and those changes define the reality for each generation.

Today, the millennials are the most educated group ever to exist. But with that, today’s new home buying generation is burdened with enormous and unprecedented student debt. We need to find solutions – some more immediate while others to help ensure the situation is not repeated.

Our real estate business welcomes clients of all generations. Maybe we helped your mom or dad – or even the grands – but we want to help this next generation of home buyers get off to a good start. Call today and let’s explore the options. Everyone should have the opportunity to have a home you own!

Gen Z, iGen, or Centennials: Born 1996 – Present
Millennials or Gen Y: Born 1981 – 1996
Generation X: Born 1965 – 1980
Baby Boomers: Born 1946 – 1964
Silent Generation: Born 1928 – 1945

Relocation San Antonio


Instead of posting some photos, thought I would share a short video from construction to arriving in San Antonio. I used to fly down from Chicago every other week while the house was being built. And, on 5-7-2004, 10:30 PM arrived in San Antonio - our new home!

15 Years Ago

Actually, 15 years ago this morning, we left Chicago and headed on down to Texas.

These photos are of the last home I owned up there.

This is just one of my unusual posts - sharing a little personal stuff. Tomorrow, the house I bought in San Antonio.
This was an indulgence. Kept the car 5 years and it had only 10,000 miles on it.

First person that answered the for sale ad bought it - full asking price. Think maybe I under-priced it?

Nice patio - built in natural gas grill - and, yes - I used it in December, January, February, whenever... just brushed the snow off.

Looking at the house from the east side. The business car is out front - OK to drive, not as much fun as the other one!

This last photo is at Christmas time - without the snow!

Can't really tell from the photos, but the evergreens were decked in red, white and blue.
