Round Rock, a great place to live!

We have been living in round rock for many years now and still, there is nowhere we would rather be. 

Currently, there are over 125 NEW HOMES ready to be moved into.  Not to mention that builders have been working day and night to met the expected demand for new homes in the area. 

Austin is getting very crowded and Round Rock, with its unique downtown enviroment and the vast sports activities, is looking great as that wonderful town to live in thats just minutes away from the Austin wierdness we have grown to love. 

The time is now, Interest rates are low and the new home inventory is very promising.

Lots of incentives to buy (green, VA, Veterans land Board, 0 down FHA)

Call me and lets go over what you need to buy your new home today.

With prices from the $160,000 ‘s and up.  Round Rock has  everything you need. 

Austin’s Apartment Market is almost MAXXED OUT!!!

There are  751 Apartment Communities in the Austin Area, not including the 25 more which are currently under construction, with a total of over 165,000 units potentially available.    The occupancy level has been steady at about 95%.  that means at any given time there are only a handful of units available. Since there are units being renovated, remodeled, used as models and being upgraded, one could expect there to be about 2% of units actually on the market with an average monthly rent amount of $917!

Don’t drive all around town looking from Elgin to Georgetown for an apartment.  You WILL waste alot of time and money.

So Call ME, Dan Elswick with Apartments HERE!  I will do all of the work for you for FREE*!!!

An Old Friend That Was Too Young To Die. R.I.P. CW2 Cantrell.

Duane Cantrell died after jumping from a second story window at his North Carolina home with his wife and then rushing back into the house, which was engulfed in flames, to rescue his precious little girls.  He and his daughters did not make it.

A friend of mine from my rowdy and crazy army days, Duane Cantrell has past away.  Duane Cantrell and I used to live, train, work, police, deploy, sham out and fight together.  He has and was trained by some of the best soldiers and leaders I have ever known.  The 108th MP Co, Doublestack, Airborne, Air Assault, Bastard Company of the Battalion and Proud of of it.  Zack, LeBlanc, Goldberg, Jakabauskas, Hom, Powell, Cortinas, Jones, Chain, Armstrong,  Ski!, and the list goes on.

He went off and followed his calling after I left the 108th.  I went down to South Texas to watch the fence and he dug deeper into the core of the Army.  The get in and get shit done section of the military.

The Special Forces!

The Green Berets!

I wonder if driving by the “man with a gun” near the old PMO helped inspire that decision.  Patrol one’s area if I remember right.  We were in the same platoon for a long time.  We had lots of great times together in and out of the Army.   went on to the Armsroom where I sat back and watched how the Army worked from a diffrent angle than  was accustomed to.

We had lots of fun old buddy.  I am going to miss you.  You were always a great friend and brother in arms.

I am going to try to get to Arlington for the services,  if not,  I at least know that I will get there someday.
