Zillow does encourage homeowners to use an agent thought, especially since the home selling process also comes with questions or concerns that many homeowners will be unable to answer and having a Realtor® working for you makes the process of selling a home easier.

As of May 30th,

AUSTIN, TX. – Trump Tax Reform is something that the President has been promising since he was inaugurated in January and he finally delivered his plan last month.

AUSTIN, TX. – There’s no doubt that when both Uber and Lyft left town last year there was a significant “void” left in the ride-hailing market here in Austin Texas.

Criminal Background Checks Are Still Required

Uber, Lyft, and other ride-hailing companies are still not off the hook, even if fingerprinting is no longer required to hire drivers because these companies will still have to conduct criminal background checks on prospective drivers before letting them
