Search for actual “horse properties” in Fayette County Texas

This morning(1/18/19) I did a search on the Houston Listing Service for actual “horse properties” that have some kind of horse-related improvements on them in Fayette County Texas.  The multiple listing pulled up 24 properties.  Sadly in pursuing through them all there were only three with horse barns.  Many of the listings mention barns but they are metal built shops with concrete floors which in my experience as a horse breeder, and horse property specialist in the southwest, is not a horse barn.  The rest of the properties all had pasture that most agents believe could also be great for horses, me I would be looking at the soil type also.  Anyhow, I digress, there were three properties Listing # 31458505 that was a metal build unfinished bardominium on beautiful acres, #51736418 a stunning getaway or full-time ranch with a five stall barn, and #76965233 acreage with “stables”.  You can see them all below but I caution you there really aren’t any pictures of the horse set up.  If you would like to schedule a private showing at any of these featured horse properties or if you would like me to find you others to consider in the area “in between” Austin, Houston, or San Antonio, please give me a call or contact me directly.  I would love the help you.  AND…for you Sellers out there who have ranch properties with or without horse facilities looking to sell, I would love to help you too!

World Class Coaching this morning!

This morning at our regular office meeting we were blessed with a presentation by Karen Edwards Turnquest of World Class Coaches.   We learned the importance of having a vision of what we want our life to be in work, with family, our finances, and our self both physically and spiritually.   Part of what we worked on this morning was to clearly identify and articulate what it is that being a real estate agent helps us to fulfill our calling and purpose in life.  It is important for us to identify our goals in order to reach them.  Part of this is to identify our strengths as Realtors and as humans and to remind ourselves of those strengths that we bring to the table each and every day to instill and infuse confidence in everything we do.  We saw first hand how empowering it was for an individual to be reviewed on his or her strengths.  Some of my personal strengths that I bring to the table in the real estate world are fairness, honesty, hard work, diligence, perseverance.

It is that time of year again! The Fall Antiques show!

It’s that time of the year again! The end of summer brings some relief from the Central Texas heat with some cooler temperatures and even a few showers.  It also brings the Fall Antique show.  For those of you who have not attended one, it is overwhelmingly big.  It basically stretches from SH 71 in LaGrange up through Warrenton and Round Top to SH 290.

To help those of you who have never experienced it here are some links to show how big it is.  Also going to feature some shopping stops but there is so much there is no way to feature it all which you will see when you watch the Fly Over video.  So here is a list of some YouTube videos to help you get an idea of what happens here for two weeks in the fall, and then again two weeks in the spring!

Here is a video on how to shop and what to expect when you get here!

And some videos so you can see some of the many shops and areas up and down the road you can stop at!  Keep in mind you can’t see this all in one day, or even two or three.  That is one of the reasons we all go back year after year, it is never the same and there are always amazing finds to see and buy!

One of the traditions that have come out of this antique extravaganza is the Gypsy Prom held at Zapp Hall the last Thursday of the show.  From what I understand this started when the ladies at the Junk Gypsy decided that there were just so many wonderful old prom dresses needing a new life.  The original theme was to play dress up in an old prom dress and to Texify it.  Over the years it has become quite an event.  I have my “prom” dress ready to go for this year’s prom date of October 4th. Check it out!
