Remember the Alamo....seriously!

Reel Productions TV just returned from a multi-day shoot in San Antonio, Texas and I have to say, agents there have a lot on their side!  This was my first trip to San Antonio and I was struck by the amazing natural beauty of the area coupled by the architectural detail that exudes culture.  Not to mention, the people are some of the nicest you would ever want to meet!  And why wouldn't they be happy with one of the coolest downtowns in all of America?  The Riverwalk rocked!  And did I mention the year long balmy weather? 

But let's talk real estate.  We were there to shoot community profiles so we got to see the ins and outs of several metros through the San Antonio area.  All were quaint with their own appeal...shopping, restaurants, views, etc.  But all boasted amazing houses.  You've heard "every thing's bigger in Texas", well, they take that saying to heart with their homes.  Even if the house wasn't large in size it's curb appeal felt monstrous.  

And then, there's this out of Business Week today:

Best Zip: 78228

Location: San Antonio (West Side/St. Mary's University area)
Metro: San Antonio
Annual listing price change: +9%
Average listing price: $116,652 
Days on the market: 134 days

San Antonio, the second largest city in Texas, is best known as the site of the battle of the Alamo. The city also has a Six Flags Fiesta Texas amusement park and SeaWorld San Antonio. St. Mary's University in San Antonio is the oldest and largest Catholic University in the state.

Definitely a great trip!

Thanks for the warm welcome San Antonio!! 

Next stop, Detroit and Pittsburgh.  Remember, if you're in the area, please be sure to let us know...we'd love to meet you :-)
