I started this blog after 18 months of remodeling/tearing down a home we bought to “flip”….so much to share….good and bad. Only items original: one tub, garage door and the air conditioning system. WOW. I’m exhausted just writing this! Love the neighborhood (Encino Park)….it’s the 2nd time we have lived here. First time because the schools were great (kids education is important) and we fell in love with a house….2nd time because it was the right time to sell our 2 story (market was HOT) and the house we are “gutting” was a one story that would be easy to resell and make a profit. Problem number one: I have fallen in love with my neighbors, the park, the pool, the location……and guess what? The ugly house isn’t so ugly anymore…..
Lisa is a blogger who is passionate about the city of San Antonio, decorating, organizing and living life! Her parents moved to San Antonio during the last three weeks of her junior year in high school from Austin, Texas to open a real estate company. Lisa swore she would move back to Austin as soon as she could....but never did. She fell in love with new friends and the city and culture and never left. Lisa has owned 10 homes in San Antonio. Her favorite project was a house she knocked down to studs and rebuilt entirely. She can see the "potential" in a house and knows what to do to turn it from a "dump house" to a "Trump house". She has been a Realtor since 1994 and has helped over 1,000 families buy and sell from San Antonio to Austin.
