Gardening Generations

Continuing with our non-real estate videos - this one looks at the joys of gardening. If you have been to the local big box stores or large grocery stores here in San Antonio during the last 2 weeks, chances are you have seen all the spring flowers for sale - and ready for your home or garden. Enjoy the video!

This video ends with acres of flowers - like tulips (tulips in San Antonio??) Unknown when making the video, today we share this story (click on the tulips):

281 North - January 2020

A quick look at construction on 281 North this week. These photos are taken while standing in the Olive Garden parking lot. (Great lunchtime soup and salad! And, they have awesome staff.)

In a few years this "look" will be nothing but memories! We can look forward to improved traffic flow and better safety. Amazing progress has been made so far and I am looking forward to driving on the new pavement soon!

FREE App For You

I still have some of the 1000 free licenses to give away.

Check out this app (cost you nothing)... great resource when you need something done, a service, insurance, tracking the appliances and electronics you own. We have 148 vendors on board so far and (I REALLY like this part) - use your smart phone to snap a photo of your device and access the device manual - no more missing documents...

These 2 short videos shared in this post will help explain.... I have the app on my phone as a user too!
Download now: https://www.homekeepr.com/join/al-cannistra

More information: https://www.sanantoniorealestate.blog/p/home-pro.html

If you are not local, grab this app anyway - you can customize to your local vendors. Invite family and friends to download too - if we use up the 1000 licenses, I'll ask for more :-)

Best Buy Geek Squad

Again – we owe thanks to the Geek Squad at Best Buy Legacy!

Their responsiveness to an urgent need is amazing. My main drive crashed and I expected 4 to 7 days down time. Instead, I was given an early evening appointment (dinner time) and they were able to swap out the SSID, reload the operating system and get my machine going while I waited. AWESOME!

For the record, this transpired in early October – and shame on me for waiting so long to make this post. But – I got it done and you know I am still happy 90 days after the rescue and repair!šŸ˜Š

The guy who helped was Joe. He helped me about a year or so ago and was equally great to work with – the kind of guy who represents the Geek Squad very well. I cannot speak to all Best Buy Geek Squad locations, but Legacy is my go to resource for computer needs. I found out they also offer one on one training. If you need that kind of support, they are worth checking out. All in all, when you need computer services, think Best Buy and the Geek Squad – they are highly recommended and I hope you will agree.

Texas Property Tax Arbitration

I have updated https://www.texastaxarbitration.com and added additional information.

If you have not visited the site previously – it addresses property tax exemptions and the arbitration process (alternate dispute resolution).

I often hear comments about property taxes in Texas and I created the public service website for information purposes only. It can help you if you plan to dispute your tax bill. Since I am an Arbitrator for Texas, please do not contact me for further information or guidance. Use the links on the site and contact the appropriate Comptroller’s office as needed.
