San Antonio's Rockstar Turned Realtor®: Texas: San Antonio

A new direction for the RErockstar.

RE/MAX Access - San Antonio/Garden Ridge Real Estate


There's a time when a man must decide.

I reached one of those point recently.  Do I continue in my current position or do I seek out other like minded individuals who can help me move to a new level of success and determination?  From the logo, I think you can guess what I chose.  I spent a lot of time thinking about the different things I wanted to find in a new office and when Sheila Moran called me to sit down and talk, I took a shot and sat down with her and Pat O'Brien.  What I found were two people who listened to what I had to say, gave me their take on my situation, and expressed their interest in getting me to be the best agent I can be.  My head was swimming with thoughts by the time I was done, but I wanted to sit with my wife and discuss the potential move as well as call my trusted real estate friend, @LaniAR.

Decisions, decisions, decisions.

It's never easy to make a change, but after my discussions with Sheila and Pat, I knew I had found my new home.  A team that takes advantage of technology (I've had more texts and tweets from them in one day then you can imagine - I love it), is creative, smart, and dedicated to giving their clients the best; well it was pretty simple to choose.

While some agents will rave about RE/MAX and the benefits they will provide me, to be honest, I'd follow Sheila and her sister Kristin to just about any company.  For me, the people in the office are what make the difference.  I have been speaking to Kristin for a long time and always thought she seemed like a great person and a great agent (and she brought me to ActiveRain).  When I finally met her sister, I knew there was something there that would help motivate and inspire me to do better.  Only time will tell the true benefits of my choice, but as of today, I'm feeling great about the future.

Of course, it helps that I'm surrounded by so many great agents too.  I look forward to making friends with my office mates and think this team can "rock" San Antonio.

I'll let you know how it goes.
