Zap Success: Janette Springer

There is a vast amount of technology platforms available to real estate agents. None of them however, operate like Zap. A system that was 15 years in the making, it offers a superb technological advantage designed specifically for real estate agents. This completely integrated system gives our agents the ability to understand, anticipate and serve their clients’ needs.

Here is a recent story highlighting how Zap allowed Janette Springer to achieve a level of success she never thought possible.

“I wanted to share my story about a Zap Lead. I was blessed with a very challenging opportunity, as well as a great learning experience that I could have never had otherwise. After receiving a lead for one of my listings (or so I thought) a caller turned out to have mistakenly found me on the other end of the line. As I interviewed the caller, I learned he was not interested in my listing, but proceeded to offer him other search options.

As time went on he told me about this particular listing he found and wanted to view. It had a three story viewing tower that offered a view seemingly from Helotes to La Cantera. He decided to submit an offer and ended up under contract. Then the work began with the roof replacement, issues everyone was experiencing at that time with the storms. An insurance company that was not able to work with the buyer was another hurdle along with a seller leaving the country. In addition, the roofer could not get that work done before close and the seller’s agent was in the middle. Despite all of this, we did get it all done. I am happy to report my client loves his new home and is currently installing a pool.

I was blessed with my first Luxury Series property for my designation that I am working towards. It took a team of players to get me through this – Amy Thibodeaux, Debbie McNeal and Judith Sinklier at First American Title, I could have never done it without them. I am very grateful that we have this lead source, as well as wonderful support in-house to ask for guidance. I can’t wait to get my second Luxury Series client for my designation!”


Thank you so much Janette Springer for sharing this story of success and home. Cheers to your continued success!

22323 Viajes • San Antonio, TX 78261 • MLS# 1171266

22323 VIAJESThis listing brought to us by Barbara Lane, is located in the North Central area of San Antonio near the TPC Golf Course.

The English translation of Viaje from Spanish means: A trip, journey ir de viaje, to go on a trip • estar de viaje, to be away •  ¡ buen viaje! Have a good trip!


1709 Antigua Cove • New Braunfels, TX 78132 • MLS# 218927

1709 Antigua Cove

This move-in ready home is brought to us by Julie Durick. Located in New Braunfels at the River Place at Gruene, any future home owner would be pleased to live in such a desirable location.

The name Antigua is an island in the Caribbean, one of the Leeward Islands; a British colony, with its dependency Barbuda, until 1967, when it became a British associated state. From the Spanish fem. of antiguo, it literally means “ancient, antique.” The island became independent in 1981 as part of the state of Antigua and Barbuda.


28268 Ruffian Drive • Fair Oaks Ranch, TX 78015 • MLS# 1136054


Bring your horses to this beautiful piece of Texas Hill Country nestled behind a gated entry. Listed by Delia Sutton, don’t let the “rough” name fool you.

Ruffian is late 15th century word from Old French and of Germanic origin. Meaning a person who might be involved in crime or a tough, lawless individual. Quite comical given the serene setting of the beautiful neighborhood in which this home is located.


8204 Lammtarra Circle  •  Fair Oaks Ranch, TX 78015  • MLS# 1172943 


Brought to us by Christy Green, this Hill Country Home is situated on over half an acre in prestigious Deer Meadows Estates.
