Craig & Paula Thanks for dropping by, I really got the Localism bug and the Rob Roy neighborhoods are areas I've worked since I started in the business 20 years ago! I also live in the Eanes school district and the neighborhood is only 5 minutes from our home!

Marchel I know what you mean, the same thing happened to me last time around but this time I decided to finally get busy posting about the places i work! Good to see you my friend!

Scott I appreciate your compliment, I decided to write about these three areas of Rob Roy because I have sold homes in all three neighborhoods and stay busy there!

Dale All three of the Rob Roy areas I've mentioned are very good neighborhoods and an added bonus is that they are located in the Eanes School District!

William Thanks, we obviously think alike and I appreciate the compliment on the post!

Karen I really thank you for stopping by! You are one of the acknowledged BEST localism bloggers  and I want to thank you for always sharing great tips on how it's done!

Dorie Like Karen, I have always liked the way you creatively write about the neighborhoods where you work! Thanks again for helping me with the Kompozer program, hopefully I will "get it" soon!

Hi Rebecca Yes, it took awhile to get me going on Local posts and I have to say that I am a enjoying writing about the areas where I live and work!

Pippa Glad to hear it because you could do some great posts about The Woodlands!

Allysoun Thanks and thank you for urging me to get busy on these posts!
