Arturo and Staci recommend Special Agents

Linda Bagley
acesparza Client, Buyer After dealing with multiple real estate agents throughout my past, I have to say Linda has to be the best.

Vacation Cabins with a Twist

Linda Bagley
I am impressed with this remarkable post by HOUZZ, vacation cabins built in Austin Texas that would be excellent construction with minimal cost built just about anywhere.

Moods of the Lake 2

Linda Bagley
Moods of the Lake 2 Living in a houseboat allows you to feel the water, and you learn after a while that the lake has moods. Sometimes it is happy, sometimes it is sad, sometimes angry, sometimes mysterious, but it seems to me, always beautiful. When I shot this picture this morning, I was struggling with what mood the lake was in.  This view only lasted a couple of minutes … Read More

Moods of the Lake

Linda Bagley
Moods of the Lake Living in a houseboat allows you to feel the water, and you learn after a while that the lake has moods. Sometimes it is happy, sometimes it is sad, sometimes angry, sometimes mysterious, but it seems to me, always beautiful. This morning, the lake woke up in a mysterious mood. The water had not even a ripple, and the light diffused by the fog created an … Read More
