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.

We lived in the area for about 3 years before taking the house-hunting plunge and truly could not have chosen a better realtor to work with. Jill is professional and patient, she is an incredible resource who is 100% there for her clients at all times. We had a lot of questions and didn't want to pay any closing costs or prepaid costs out of pocket - Jill is a Master Certified Negotiation Expert and it SHOWS. We got exactly what we wanted at the price we wanted AND had several bonuses thrown in, including appliances and gutters. She was there for inspections/walk-throughs and kept in contact with our builder's salesperson as well. If you want a strong realtor who is also pleasant to work with (which I've learned is rare), then Jill is the realtor for you!! read less
