I can't believe I kinda sorta wrote a how-to post.
  Sometimes you don’t think straight. Or maybe you don’t think at all, when you make plans and suddenly find yourself committed to hosting three different events in five days. That was us last week, when we opened our home t...

Here's the story of how one stranger virtually held out her hand and helped save my family two years ago.

My brave girl - she can make me so proud and so embarrassed all at once. That's talent!
WavePool. Last week was Spring Break for my three-year-old. Let's just say it was more spring (as in the kind in our mattress) and less break as I tried to keep up with a mobile, teething infant a...

My partner and I moved from Chicago to Austin, and after some research, decided to go with Jeffrey Schnabel from Realty Austin to help us with our home search. Even before leaving Chicago, he has impressed us with his detailed knowledge of the area. It is with his help that we were able to target an area for our search, even when we had never set foot here before. Jeffrey had also helped us by checking out our temporary apartment that we rented on a month-to-month basis during our home search. He took pictures and video that made us feel more comfortable about it being a suitable place for us prior to our arrival. It was something he had offered to do without our asking, and that gave us an idea of how thorough he was throughout the process. Not only that, he's extremely tech savvy, which we really liked and appreciated, because he could easily do research at showings and when we were ready to place an offer, we could do it quickly with online forms and signature, rather than having to go back and forth with physical documents. It was not only more convenient, but when time is of the essence in a quick-draw housing market, efficiency was essential. In addition, as a father himself, he offered invaluable advice on the school system, which was our main criteria for our home's location. During the showings, he was frank with the details, and he was helpful in educating us in features of the home and the home-buying process itself, which was new to us. In the end, we went with a FSBO property, and his input had swayed the sellers in leaving us many high-end appliances that we otherwise would have had to purchase ourselves. Near closing, our lender almost fell through with the closing date and it was Jeffrey's phone calls and letters to the right people that landed us at exactly where we needed to be. In essence, he saved the day! We're very fortunate to have had Jeffrey guide us through this often painful process and in securing us our beautiful new home. It was truly a pleasure to work with him, and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him to anyone else looking for a home in Austin.
