These days saving money is back in vogue as conversations have shifted from “I spent $250 on this brand name bag” to “I saved $100 and got a great deal on this bag”. I love saving money maybe not quite as much as I enjoy spending money but I do enjoy getting a good deal. The easier a company or service makes the process of saving money the more I enjoy saving money.

If you are relocating to Spring Texs, you may not be a aware that our electricity service has been deregulated allowing us to choose who we want to provide our service. I recently switched our electricity provider to Kinetic Energy. I locked in a rate of $0.0985 per kilowatt hour for a 1-year term. A savings of 28% over my previous 2-year term fixed rate whose term had come to an end.
Within 30 minutes, I had researched the plans, identified the true cost of the month fees associated with some of the programs, and signed up to switch my electric provider online. I incurred no interruption in service and the first bill which I received last week was correct. Go to powertochoose.org and check it out. It’s an easy way to save money on your home’s monthly electric bill.

I've worked with agents in the past with whom I've been less than impressed, but Jill is top-notch. She is punctual, thorough, and patient. She has an almost encyclopedic knowledge of the market, the builders, the school districts, the MUDs, and the neighborhoods. For the sale of our home, Jill took us step by step through the preparations necessary to get our house ready to show: everything from rearrangement of furnishings to referrals for handymen. When we started viewing potential houses to buy, I was amazed that Jill not only knew everything about the house she was showing me, but seemed to know details regarding all the neighboring houses as well. For the closings, Jill was an extra set of eyes, ensuring that the paperwork was in order. She also made sure that the the closing was at a convenient location and took as little time as possible (less than an hour in both instances). All throughout the process, Jill remained a driving force, constantly ensuring that inspection reports were being rendered promptly or that the mortgage provider was keenly aware of the closing date; and I received a steady stream of email updates from her. I couldn't be more pleased with her, and in the event we're once again in the market for another home, she would be my first call. read less
