Congratulations Trudy Scott

logoCongratulations Trudy Scott for receiving the designation of Seniors Real Estate Specialists® or SRES®.

By earning the SRES® Designation, she has demonstrated the necessary knowledge and expertise to counsel clients age 50+ through major financial and lifestyle transitions in relocating, refinancing, or selling the family home.

Below is a little bit about Trudy, and be sure to visit her Sales Agent page here,

As a previous Director at a large retirement community in San Antonio and many years of real estate and marketing experience, I have a passion for helping and serving others with trustworthiness, integrity and top notch service. I am also a mother/advocate of a special needs child and have worked personally with many of the same entities including AACOG, DADS, Medicaid, Special Needs Trust, Guardianship, etc. I am honored to have the SRES® Seniors Real Estate Specialist Designation, which affords me special knowledge in working with seniors and their families. As your San Antonio Realtor, I will LISTEN to what you need and want and I will always be responsive and accessible to you!

My goal is to make the transition of you or your loved one the simplest possible. Getting the property sold so you can move on is my job. I want to make the transition as seamless and with the least impact as possible for you. As a Seniors Real Estate Specialist, I will help clients plan and make the right choices for aging in place & the community where they are comfortable and safe in their home.

Whether it’s learning more about reverse mortgages, how to become a power of attorney/guardian, which neighborhoods in San Antonio are 55+ or even knowing what retirement communities are like, I have the contacts and knowledge in all those areas.

Well done Trudy! Thank you for sharing such wonderful words with us and cheers to your continued success.

Talk About Texas with Faythe Brunk

In a recent interview with Faythe we asked her about KKYX 104.9FM & 680AM (“Country Legends”), and specifically her partnership with Roy Holley on the radio show, Talk about Texas.

Now owned by Cox Radio, Country Legends has been around since 1926 and the station covers over 99,000 sq. miles and over 100 counties. It’s a major outlet for country music lovers all over Texas and was ranked one of the top ten stations in the nation during the 70’s and 80’s  and is still very popular today. Roy Holley’s program “Talk About Texas” has been on the station for almost 7 years and has over ¼ million listeners. 

Jerry King (who edits all of Faythe’s radio material) is a popular morning personality has been on the radio for over 40 years, has received many accolades and is an honorary member of the Country DJ Hall of Fame in Nashville. 

The co-producer of Talk about Texas, we asked Faythe how she feels to be part of such a special project, “Imagine how you feel when you hear a good story and take that narrative journey marked by triumphs, failures, insight, and a little bit of serendipity.  Or imagine sharing a cup of coffee with a friend and listening intently as they share their incredible  life story.  Now imagine that’s actually an enjoyable morning and you really want to do it again. When you join us on Saturday mornings, whether it’s a live interview at the studio, or out in Llano, that’s exactly what you’ll hear.  We travel all over Texas collecting great stories where you’ll get to hear some surprising revelations of everyday people who get to take the microphone and talk about their lives.  Each week the show shares these unscripted conversations revealing the wisdom, courage, and poetry in the words of people you might not notice walking down the street.  Sometimes we’ll make you laugh, other times you may get sentimental, but we’ll always be perseveringly honest and empathetic.

Take a listen to one of these shows featuring our very own, Leesa Harper-Rispoli, President of Coldwell Banker D’Ann Harper, REALTORS®:

Be sure to tune in every Saturday from 8:30 – 9:30am on KKYX Radio to listen to their upcoming show featuring fantastic personalities from right here in Texas. You can download the station on www.iheart.com or live stream at www.kkyx.com.

So, we asked Faythe, any last thoughts on this?
I feel blessed being part of the show mainly because I get to meet some A-M-A-Z-I-N-G Texans that always make me smile, and working with folks like that can’t go anywhere but awesome!”

Well said, and can be sure we’ll be listening!

CBHarper 2017 Spring Blood Drive

Several times a year Coldwell Banker D’Ann Harper, REALTORS® hosts a blood drive coordinated by Denise Barnhill. The buses that visit us bring wonderful teams from The South Texas Blood and Tissue Center who work hard to collect life-saving blood donations.

Yesterday’s Coldwell Banker D’Ann Harper, REALTORS® Spring Blood Drive was a tremendous success. We collected 15 pints of blood and exceeded our goal of 11 pints of blood, which means we saved 45 lives. Each pint of blood can save up to 3 lives.

A special thank you goes to everyone who donated and who also helped to make our Blood Drive such a tremendous success. Thanks to Mika Connor and Danielle Martin for coordinating and collecting names.

Thank you to everyone who donated blood today by giving someone the gift of life.

We wanted to offer an outlet for those that still wanted to give but perhaps ran out of time. There is a location very close just off Northwest Military and Loop 1604 where donors can drop by – you can even schedule an appointment online here.
