I sat down with Kendra Hudson, a broker here at TM5, to ask her about the growth she is seeing in south College Station. Here is what she had to say! 


Terrence: Why do you think people are moving to south college station?

Kendra: The south part of College Station appeals to people who want a newer home. There are even areas such as; Indian Lakes, Castlegate 2, Castle Rock, etc., where you can build a custom home.  In addition, there are also several neighborhoods in the south that offer acreage lots.  

Terrence: What makes the area such a good place?

Kendra:  Well, things have changed so much in that area.  I remember WAY back when the city ended at Rock Prairie.  Now there is so much more in the areas south of there.  We have new

This morning as I was thumbing through several issues of Popular Mechanics, my husband’s favorite magazine, I paused on the Father’s Day issue.  The cover caught my eye – “127 Things My Father Taught Me.”  It made me wonder – what did my father teach me?

Looking at the article, I found that most fathers gave tips for repairing the car or some item in the house and others imparted general nuggets of wisdom.

He taught me how to make delicious eggplant parmigiana.

As I mentioned in the August market update, the busy holiday season generally results in a deceleration of the real estate market. The following snapshot illustrates this theory as September takes a plunge in total monthly sales. However, the industry continues to outperform itself compared to the past two years and as a result, we have remained busy here at TM5 Properties. With this being said, if you are considering putting your home on the market, make sure you are taking advantage of these last few months of the year by making repairs around the house, getting rid of extra clutter and even connecting with a realtor. If you are considering selling your home, please contact me for a free evaluation of your property!
