The Good Life in Austin Texas


Westlake Open House-4510 Rapid Springs Cove-Sunday March 8th, 2-4PM

This Sunday, March 8th, 2009 I will be holding open an exceptional home in one of my favorite neighborhoods in the Westlake/Eanes School District. The Westview community is located along the Westlake Peninsula on Westlake Drive and is one of Austin's finest neighborhoods. The home features quality workmanship and attention to every detail which is apparent throughout this luxury property.  Located on a cul-de-sac this home offers the best of everything in the Westview neighborhood to discriminating buyers! The bright open floor plan is conveniently arranged for both living and entertaining.  For those who have been searching for a home that is well designed and has the flexibility to provide SIX or SEVEN bedrooms, this residence may just fit the bill. For more information or a private showing of this exceptional home or to see any other homes located in the Eanes School District, please contact me by email or my mobile number listed below.  I will be on-site between 2pm and 4pm Sunday to show this home and discuss in more detail the many amenities of the home and the neighborhood! I look forward to seeing you there!

4510 Rapid Springs Cove

Let me put my nineteen years success helping upscale buyers and sellers in Austin's finest neighborhoods to work for you. Call or email for a private consultation at your convenience!

Russell - Love the photo of the back of the house with the lights on.  This might be the shortest post you've ever written, so I'll keep my comments brief.

You always do such a good job of posting listings around the many places available and this is such a good way to get this out to those that read your blog and also the agents you network with here at Active rain! have a good weekend and good luck with your open house!

Russell - what a beautiful house, I hope you have a very successful open house. Also, very nice format with the presentation you have created. Have a great weekend!

Matt Thanks, I appreciate your comment. I have to start posting more about my neighborhood and areas of expertise so my more "entertaining blog posts will be interspersed with real estate! It's all good!

Allysoun I have listened and now plan to post 3-5 market/neighborhood reports between each of my more entertaining posts. I have actually been looking forward to applying the same things on my blog that I have been mailing out over the years. My clients always tell me that they appreciate the market data so it's up to me to get it done!

Hi Sharon I appreciate you dropping by (I always like visiting your blog too). It is an incredible home and frankly I think it is an excellent value for the neighborhood!

Russel, I love the picture with the swimming pool, very warm and inviting.

Hi Russell-What a gorgeous home. I'd think I'd died and gone to heaven if I had a place like that. Best of luck on Sunday. :-)

Russell - I find myself "reporting" the news too much in my blog.  i want to find a way to get myself to focus on some real estate facts (most of mine are real estate related, just want more facts, stats, helpful hints, etc.).  Maybe we should both get on each other's case when we veer off course.

Hi Russell. A beautiful home. Hope you have a sucessful open house.

Jane me too the outdoors is just a wonderful extension of this beautiful home!

Sharon I have to tell you that it would be the next best thing because this lovely home has it all!

Matt You are right and when I visited with Rich & brad at Rebar camp they were clear that we need to brand ourselves in our neighborhoods and areas of expertise. I am working on several neighborhood profiles and plan to use examples by several of my favorites. Check them out!

Russell you seem to have the open house process down and utilize the time so well for your sellers as well as prospective buyers in a casual no pressure environment. You should write a post on how your manage your open house time!

Posted by Jeannette Spinelli (Avenue One Properties) about 1 year ago

What a great place to do an open house - I hope you find a buyer soon.

Posted by Allysoun Musslewhite (AvenueOne Properties, Inc.) about 1 year ago

Hey Russell--I'm packing as we speak.........The backyard is truly paradise and the master bath, and the kitchen.  Be there in a week :-)

Posted by Gail MacMillan - CRS, e-PRO, GRI ~ Titusville FL Real Estate Brevard County ( about 1 year ago

Diane It really is a beautiful home and the weather was nice (but not too nice to make people do something else.)

Scott I agree, when compared to the inventory in this price range it really shines and I had a steady crowd all afternoon.

Erin I had help from our graphics coordinator, Rick and he always does a great job.

Jeannette I am indeed one of those people who still enjoys doing an open house because I enjoy talking about the home, the neighborhood and the area to all that visit!

Posted by Russell Lewis, Broker,CLHMS,GRI (AvenueOne Properties, Austin Texas Real Estate) about 1 year ago

Georgina It really is a great place to preview and show and I received so much positive feedback all afternoon!

Art Yes indeed, she was her a while ago! I did have two very serious lookers so will keep my fingers crossed!

Allysoun Great crowd, steady all afternoon and nothing but positive feedback! Thanks for checking in!

HI Gail It really is a place to behold. The floor plan is wonderful and it just feels so comfortable. I did not want to go in the back yard because I would have just jumped n the pool and stayed all afternoon! And you are welcome to visit Austin anytime!
