Is it Still a Good Time to Buy or Sell a House?
With school starting and people getting settled in, we usually see a short lull toward the end of summer. That only lasts briefly, as we are still seeing a lot of activity in the local New Braunfels and San Antonio Metro Real Estate market for both sales and leasing.
Interest rates are staying near a 52 week low according to this recent report from Freddie Mac:
Mortgage Rates Hold Steady
If you think you've missed the chance to purchase or sell a home, low interest rates are a factor that helps keep affordability down for people in the market.
Call one of our agents today if we can help give you more information!
If 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.

We 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.

Roy is one of PPI’s stellar agents, having been with us for over 6 years now. Most people will know Roy as the person who is consistently willing to listen to a person’s desires and needs in a lease, purchase, or sale. He will then put a plan together to help achieve those goals in the best way possible.
He is always available to help people and is often the first agent in and last out of the office. Those long hours of dedication give him a great feel for what’s going on around us in the market, and how to best navigate his clients and customers through the many questions they often have.
Be sure you consider talking with Roy next time you want to buy, sell, or lease a home!
