Today is the first day of fall and I am definitely ready for a change in seasons. The summer we just had in Spring Texas was grueling. Full of heat, humidity, and very little rain.
It was in May of 2001 that I moved to Spring Texas. I had arrived just in time for the start of summer. The best way to describe the humidity was it was horrible. I had one bad hair day after the next and swear I discovered sweat glands I did not even know existed. Born a Midwestern, I could not understand why anybody in there right mind would want to live in a place where the humidity was so horrible.
Then the seasons changed and we enjoyed some fabulous fall days with lower humidity levels and pleasant evening temperatures. Winter arrived and there was no ice to scrape and no snow to shovel. Spring came and with it stunning displays from Azaleas bushes and wildflowers filled the medians.
Then I finally “got it” summer is the season you have to put up with in order to enjoy the other three seasons of the year. It was the same thing in the Midwest where I grew up except reversed. We put up with the long, dreary, cold winters to enjoy the summer.
What’s your favorite time of year to live in Spring Texas? You have probably guessed mine is not summer. It is spring.

She recently sold our home that had been a difficult listing. Not only would I not sell a home with any other realtor, I would not buy a home with anyone else. Why? Jill is a Five Star realtor. One has to perform at the top of their profession on a consistent and lengthy basis to receive such a designation. Jill has done so and received this award year after year after year. At our meet and greet get together she offered two transformative suggestions for our home. She continued to propose ideas that led to the sale of our home. Her work ethic was exceptional. She held open houses very frequently. She even picked up leaves when I was busy on another task for a showing. Jill is a wonderful person that really cares about selling your house. Her advice with negotiations and closing was all we could ask for and resulted in us getting our asking price. Trust her. We did and could not be happier. read less
