You might have heard a thing or two about the growth of the Houston area. Well, it’s no mere PR spiel, Houston’s growth is epic, and it’s not slowing down.

A recent report by the Houston Chronicle looked at raw Census data and found that, to no one’s surprise, the Houston area is second only to New York City in the number of residents it has added since last year.

The Best Steakhouse in San Antonio 

Located just north of San Antonio in the tiny town of Bulverde sits one of the best steakhouses in Texas; The Tejas Steakhouse & Saloon. The saloon itself is practically a western art gallery expertly decorated in authentic western pieces, paintings, and memorabilia. Atmosphere aside, if you take one bite into their famous “KC Steak”, a few nibbles of their “Green Pepper Mac & Cheese”, or a sip of just about any drink you could imagine from their bar selection, it’s easy to see how they were named Best Steakhouse in San Antonio by both SA Magazine and USA Today. 

   As if the award-winning steakhouse wasn’t enough to make you want to drop what you’re doing, jam the family in the car, and head off into the

The recession hurt Houston’s real estate market in a bad way. But perhaps the segment of the market where it hurt particularly bad was the mansion market. River Oaks Houston homes were sitting on the market, and no one was begging to gobble up those homes priced over $500,000. But River Oaks Houston homes are singing an entirely different tune today. In fact, some are even speculating that mansion sales of 2012 will rival those from the 1980s.

Those pricey homes in River Oaks, Memorial and West University Place are no longer sitting on the MLS, hoping for a taker. Instead, homes priced over $500,000 are making up the strongest segment of the market; and home sellers here couldn’t be happier.

In fact, the Houston Association of Realtors recently
