Meet our Agents - Micki ScottIf you’ve had the pleasure of meeting Micki in our office or out and about, you walk away knowing one thing – she cares. Micki moved to New Braunfels from the Houston area where she worked around the new construction business. That background allowed her to learn many things about home sales in general, and also how to work with builders on new construction. She does a great job in keeping in touch with her clients and customers whether on a lease, or listing/purchase. Her caring personality always shines through and she’s never been afraid to ask for things on behalf of the people she represents. Sound like the type of person you’d like to work with? Contact Micki so she can sit down with you and discuss your needs in our local market. She may be reached at: Micki@propertyNB.com (830) 387-5144
Meet Our Agents - Kassi JaroszewskiWe joke that Kassi is PPI’s critter specialist. Many of her transactions are sales of higher end properties that accommodate horses and other large animals. This is a natural fit as she is around them all the time! Since she is often a host of team ropings and other events at her family’s ranch, she has a very familiar knowledge of the needs of this particular niche. That’s not to say she can’t help with just about anything you throw at her. She’s stayed very involved in the local Real Estate Boards over the years to be aware of change and growth, not to mention help shape it! Kassi is a very honest, straightforward, and hardworking professional. Give her your needs and she’ll tell you exactly the path to get there, dotting every “i” and crossing every “t” along the way. You can reach Kassi anytime at: Kassi@propertyNB.com (830) 387-5153

Why New Braunfels?In New Braunfels, ist das leben schoen (the living is good). That is, at least, according to the increasing numbers of people who move to our little German town each year: going by the 2012 U.S. Census, we’re up 66% from the year 2000! Of course, we’re a little biased given that we live and work here (and, um, love doing so), but we think there are a number of good reasons for this explosive population growth. Below, we’ll detail the top 5. 1. Location, Location, Location
What’s true in housing real estate is true in choosing a city: location is everything. Situated right in between San Antonio and Austin, New Braunfels provides convenient access to its bigger sister cities and all of the jobs and culture that come with them. For people who prefer to live closer to beautiful rivers like the Guadalupe and Comal or to refreshing Canyon Lake, New Braunfels is the perfect mix of city and rural living. In New Braunfels, the backyards are bigger and everyone owns a grill.
2. World Class Healthcare
One of the biggest new attractions in New Braunfels is the soon to open state-of-the-art hospital, Resolute Health. Offering Urgent and Family Care and a holistic approach that treats every aspect of a patient’s well-being, living in New Braunfels means having easy access to top notch facilities and providers -- specialists included. When this wonderful, comprehensive new campus opens in June, it will truly mean New Braunfels is right for everyone, no matter what stage of life they may be in.
3. Big City Feel, Small Town Prices
Yes, despite what we said earlier about the more rural aspect of New Braunfels living, the city actually offers a number of cultural resources to rival both Austin and San Antonio, including high quality restaurants and a buzzing nightlife. But unlike in these bigger cities, just about everything is cheaper here, including food, after hours activities and of course, rent and real estate. A fully-equipped, centrally located downtown New Braunfels rental will set you back only $1,300 in rent, as compared to something closer to $2,000 a month in downtown Austin. And to buy a 3-bedroom home in Austin, you’d need an average of $374K, while in New Braunfels you’d need just $170.000 for a house of the same caliber. Imagine how much higher the quality of your life would be with all of the cash leftover from such lower mortgage payments!
4. High-Paying Jobs
While commuting to San Antonio and Austin is a breeze, you’d do just as well for yourself sticking around town. Just a few minutes down the road in nearby Scherz, the construction giant Caterpillar runs a large manufacturing plant, with ample opportunities for workers at a range of ability levels. And when Resolute Health opens, it will provide good jobs not only for healthcare professionals like doctors and nurses but also for hospital admin and other staff essential for running day-to-day operations. A range of retail stores round out the employment picture, along with the local school districts and a number of small companies that have their headquarters here.
5. Distinctive Culture
As you’ve probably guessed by now, New Braunfels was founded by German settlers. This heritage shines through even today in a number of distinctive festivals and cultural experiences. Bier Gartens and German-themed restaurants and cafes abound, serving everything from Pilsner to Bratwurst. Speaking of which, the 10-day Wurstfest is a big draw for visitors from around the region every November, featuring German beers, wine, traditional costumes, music and of course, bratwurst. The levity may be on full display during festival time, but locals know a similar atmosphere can be found in dining and drinking establishments throughout the season. Combine that with many family friendly options, and it’s the perfect environment for just about everyone.So why New Braunfels? The better question is “why not?” Contact us today to make the switch.
