Woo Hooo! You are finally back from the Holidays! I hope y'all have a fantastic turnout on Saturday!

Hi Brad and thanks! The price has been reduced substantially and represents a good value for this quality and location!

Ally Yes I am back and this time plan to actually post more consistently!

Russell, I love home shows we have them in The Woodlands now and then. I have not heard of a modern home show though.

Hi Russell, thanks for the heads up on this tour. It looks very cool and I hope we can get by early to see the house on Willowbridge Circle and visit for awhile!

Posted by Lynne 9 days ago

Great stuff Russell. I hope the Tour brings you lots of offers and so many qualified buyers that your year is made!

Good luck this weekend!

Beautiful home!  The pictures are fabulous, and I suspect you'll be receiving many offers to buy this place.  

Posted by Keith Hogan 9 days ago

What a gorgeous looking home. We purchased tickets to the tour and will be sure to start at your location early so we can see you for a few minutes!

Posted by Lisa and Jim 9 days ago

Marchel as you know the population is widely varied here in Austin so we have the opportunity to enjoy a wide range of architecture in our homes!

Lynne I hope you two have the chance to drop by, there are a number of excellent homes on the tour but this is truly spectacular!

Craig Thanks for dropping by, my associate Dana Dean is a fantastic listing agent at our company and it is a privilege to be able to help her with this event. I think there will be ample opportunity to meet a number of potential buyers at the same time.

Keith I appreciate you dropping by and the pictures though beautiful are not nearly as impressive as the property!

Lisa & John I will look for y'all on Saturday afternoon!

Posted by Russell Lewis, Broker,CLHMS,GRI (AvenueOne Properties, Austin Texas Real Estate) 9 days ago

This is a very beautiful home with gorgeous spaces in an excellent location. Good luck to you all at the open house tour on Saturday!

Posted by Scott Harvey (AvenueOne Properties) 9 days ago

Very nice curb appeal and the inside looks fabulous too.  It will be fun to do an open house there, especially if they have some goodies in the fridge... haha JK!

This is a really beautiful home.  I am excited to see it on the tour of homes.

Hey Russell, this is my kind of home.  Good luck on Saturday.  You should have a huge crowd.

Hi Russell!  Boy, when you come back, you come back with a Texas BANG, don't you?!  What a gorgeous listing!  So, I see what you've been up to, huh?!  I actually have a client moving here that this home would be perfect for--perhaps we should check on the cost of moving it!

Great presentation and SO glad to see you on my blog roll today!

UH WOW!!  This home is AMAZING!!  It would certainly bring me out of blogging retirement to write about too!  :wink wink nudge nudge:  Luv ya Russell, you gotta write more!

The photos are amazing! But I've never heard of selling tickets to tour homes??? Is that common?

Posted by Lisa Hill (Daytona Beach Real Estate) (Florida Property Experts) 9 days ago

Scott Thanks, I know that you are a fan of modern architecture and sustainable building. OK now get back to the books!

Georgina It's even nicer when you see the home first hand. And, you crack me up, I thought I was the only person who "previewed" the refrigerator!

Anna Thank you very much, I hope to see you there!

Jane It is a privilege to work at a firm where we are a leader in marketing some of Austin's finest homes!

Debe Thanks, I hope to get back to blogging and be CONSISTENT this year and I appreciate the encouragement!

Renee Thank you so much, I am out of "retirement" now and appreciate the compliment. I hope to be here on a regular basis this year!

Lisa The pictures of the space are incredible and to answer your question, the money goes to support the event and activities. There are other tours in Austin that charge a fee, the Historical and Preservation Society and the Symphony Guild Parade of Luxury Tour. No profit is made and this tour helps as the mission statement says,  "the exchange of ideas and contacts between Real Estate Professionals, Architects, and Developers so as to foster collaborative rather than competitive relationships within the industry and further the idea of modern and sustainable living in the City of Austin."

The open cathedrals are just beautiful.

Best of luck with the Open this weekend.

Jennifer Thanks, I am also a fan of kitchens and this one has just about anything a cook who enjoys entertaining could possibly desire!

Judi The tour offers a variety of modern architecture and though all are excellent I think this one is truly spectacular!

Dale I hope you are right my friend because this is a home that will be appreciated by anyone who visits!

Mike Thanks, the pictures are very good and the spaces within are incredibly well designed and built!

I'll give you a dollar for it. Is that too much to offer? :)

Did I tell you that someone told me that if I keep my tongue in my cheek long enough it'll grow hair? :)


Posted by "The Lovely Wife" (Broker Bryant's Wife) The One And Only TLW. (Co-Owner Tutas Towne Realty, Inc.) 7 days ago

WOW I have to say that after looking over the tour list the home on Willowbridge Circle is the winner. BEAUTIFUL! I am out of town this weekend but hope that there is a large crowd to see this wonderful home!

Posted by Lynne 7 days ago

It looks like a truly remarkable home, Russel! It took me awhile to appreciate the "mid-century modern" style, but it has really grown on me! I love the windows. Great photos, too! Congratulations . . . now we'll keep our fingers crossed for a sale.

Posted by Deena Cottingham, Home Stager & Photographer (GreenApple Staging & Images, Calgary Staging & Photography) 7 days ago

Toula and Betina Hi there, I almost missed your remarks and thanks again for stopping by, the home is an incredible work of Art so I hope we have a large crowd!

TLW having previously reviewed your exceptional educational video and taken your course on "Southern" Counter-offers, I am pleased to inform we will not be responding in a like manner. ;-P However, I just wanted you to know that all offers are considered but you might like to know that based on your initial offering price extrapolated into a "lease" the term of said lease would be .33 seconds! Thanks again for your interest, if I may be of service or if you would like to re-submit your offer I am always available! (BTW I was told the same thing about a person's palms and I can tell you unequivocally that it's not true) Oh always crack me up!

Lynne Thank you very much, I feel the same as you as this one is the pick of the bunch!

Deena I was like that for a long time and agree that it grows on you. This home was built from the ground up and reflects the style but with a large number of modern touches!

Posted by Russell Lewis, Broker,CLHMS,GRI (AvenueOne Properties, Austin Texas Real Estate) 7 days ago

Russell...this house is amazing, I wish you luck on the tour and hope this one goes fast for you.

Posted by Rebecca Gaujot Lewisburg WV Realtor (Coldwell Banker Stuart & Watts Real Estate) 7 days ago

The open and brightly lit spaces and are very appealing and even though the beautiful pictures are not staged this is an incredibly well don e home. It has that WOW factor and I hope lots of people visit today!

Good morning Russell,

Good luck, the sun came out so should be a lovely day for your Tour of Homes. You have a beautiful home to have of luck in the right buyer walking in the door and making a purchase.

Came back to bookmark that remark. When I need a good laugh it'll be right at my fingertips :)


Posted by "The Lovely Wife" (Broker Bryant's Wife) The One And Only TLW. (Co-Owner Tutas Towne Realty, Inc.) 6 days ago

Russell, I should take your pictures and put them next to my listing with an explanation this is what it could look like with updating. My listing is the before and yours is the after:))

Posted by Endre Barath,Jr. (Beverly Hills,CA.310.486.1002 Coldwell Banker) 6 days ago

Hi Russell, This home is just beautiful.  If all the homes on the tour are half this nice, it would be a wonderful tour.  I hope you had a great turnout today!

Posted by Mary Douglas, REALTOR ®, Red Feather Lakes, Colorado (United Country Ponderosa Realty) 6 days ago

Hi Russell-Hope the tour went well. This home is stunning. I love the first pics with all the lights glowing inside. Hope your Sunday is great. <SMILE>

Posted by Sharon Lee (Sharon Lee's Virtual Assistance) 6 days ago

Rebecca I appreciate the feedback on the property, we had a great turn out.

Mattie You are so right, the spatial quality of the rooms is amazing and frankly this house looks better in person (which is not often the case).

Dorie Thanks, we had an incredible crowd and amazingly enough I met with 2 people who are interested in looking at other homes in the area.

TLW I am so glad that my reply tickled you because you make me laugh a lot and I appreciate that!

Endre Great idea and I have to tell you that your mid-century home looks like it has great possibilities. This home is in an area that has a lot of excellent examples of mid-century properties!

Posted by Russell Lewis, Broker,CLHMS,GRI (AvenueOne Properties, Austin Texas Real Estate) 5 days ago

Morning Russell, I LOVE this sleek gorgeous home!!! I could see myself cooking away in that beauty of a kitchen. I hope the open went well.

Russell  Beautifully done - we rarely have these type shows - our homes are not in the price range

Russell, what a beautiful place!  I could imagine living there, except I have to sell a few houses first!

Posted by Patricia Kennedy (Evers & Company Realtors) 4 days ago

Mary The tour had a variety of great homes but this one in my opinion was truly the best of the bunch ;-)


Sharon We had a great tour and the spaces within the home are really spectacular!


Cynthia I do too and like you would have a ball in that kitchen!


Karen Austin is very diverse as you now and we are fortunate to actually have several different tours each year.


Matthew & Jane I thoroughly enjoyed visiting with you and look forward to helping you in your search for a new home in West Austin!


Bill The floor plan and excellent use of the spaces is absolutely beautiful and we DID have a excellent turnout!


Patricia Thanks for the compliment, it’s an extraordinary home but the price tag is well worth the asking price!

Posted by Russell Lewis, Broker,CLHMS,GRI (AvenueOne Properties, Austin Texas Real Estate) 3 days ago

WOW!  That looks like quite the dream home.  I hope your open house went well.

Posted by Irene Tron (FC Tucker/1st Team Real Estate in Valparaiso, Indiana) 3 days ago

Hi Russell!  Do I need to speak with you about block-time?!!  I always pop over to see you and you're never home!  I guess it's better for you that you're out selling homes--but, we do love your blogs!

Have a wonderful Wednesday eve...

Posted by Debe Maxwell, Realtor® - Charlotte NC MLS - Charlotte NC Neighborhoods (Helen Adams Realty) 2 days ago

Rusell - what a cool house. I am very into modernism. I could live there...except you are too far from the beach. Hope the Open House went well. I am rather late to the party here.
