To My Houston Realtor Becky:

Picture 7

I am a tough client. I know exactly what I want but always have the hardest time finding it. My house means everything to me.  I blog about it, shop for it, work on it and spend all my creative time dreaming about it.  Shopping for a new home is both fun and stressful for me.  When my world is not in order, I tend to be overwhelmed and stressed. You will be challenged.  

When house hunting, simplicity is my new motto. I want to keep my home simple. I don't need fancy finishes or lots of square feet. I prefer smaller spaces and "where to put things" challenges. I need shade trees and a backyard big enough for a pool.  A cul-de-sac street is preferred and I need lots of 6-8 year old boys as neighbors.

I realize that schools are going to be a challenge. You know my situation. Most of my readers know my situation with Max.  I can accept a rated school, it doesn't have to exemplarily. Private school is also an option.

Then there is the financial challenges that my husband and I place on ourselves. We live below our means, like way below. Sometime this causes stress. We want to keep up with the Jones but must be good stewards with our money. So, we might be able to afford those big beautiful houses but we don't want to spend our money that way. We will look to you to help keep us within our budget. You are on our team now.

Becky, you will need patience with me as a client. However, I promise in the end, I will be your biggest advocate and fan.

Here is some of my latest research, of course I have yet to visit Houston so I am sure my opinions will all change!

What a fun post. Laying it all out ahead of time always helps. ;)
Want my opinion? No. 3. Ooh, or No. 5 (although I would never spend that much on a house, but I like it alot. )
Best of luck on your new adventure.
