As the days grow longer we all strive to keep cool in the Texas heat, which often translates to increasing our energy use, and bill. Conserving energy can be done easily by implementing simple practices such as using ceiling fans, setting the water heater to 120° and setting the thermostat higher when we are not at home. For more strategies to conserve energy and save money visit Energy.gov.
This year spring brought some much needed rain to Central Texas filling the lakes and helping ease water restrictions. Currently Austin Water is in the Conservation Stage asking that residents water one day a week in the early morning or late evening. Stay up to date on water restrictions and stage changes by visiting the City of Austin Water Department.

"Moving Right Along - 2017 Current Buyers
We began talking with Violet a while back regarding our desire to move to a new home and keep our current home as an investment property. She guided us through the process and helped us take the first step by having us talk with a lender so we could get a better understanding of our financing options. We refinanced our home back in September and will be able to use some of the equity for a down payment on a new home. We spoke with Violet about various areas and neighborhoods we would be interested. She set up several portals for us and over the last few months she’s taken us to see properties that were of interest to us. She’s been very patient and very helpful by keeping us informed about the local real estate market. Based on the multiple portals we have, we have been able to narrow down the neighborhoods that will fit our lifestyle and focus our search on those. We look forward to working with Violet to find our next new home. We would certainly recommend her to friends and family, and we already have!
