November 2020


This year has been everything but normal. Watching my kids run around the neighborhood with friends on Halloween made me so appreciative of the little moments we have had where life feels a little more normal, when kids can just be kids. I hope that you are finding those special moments as well, especially as we head into the holiday season. It’s going to be a year of blending old traditions with new ones. Whatever it is- find joy in it!


If I can help provide guidance to you about marketing your home for sale, helping you consider your next move, or share my local market knowledge with friends and family who might be considering the Austin area, please connect with me! I wish you a happy and healthy holiday season.
