Our offices are currently closed as we are experiencing a Texas weather emergency. The power grid in Texas was not prepared for the cold weather we have been experiencing. Our office has been without power since yesterday, (Monday) 6:30 am. Temperatures dropped to – 6 degrees last night. There are outages as well as rolling outages. Road conditions are treacherous and we have more snow forecasted for tonight and tomorrow. Many shelters have been set up to help warm those without heat.
Please know that Texas infrastructure and homes are not built for this type of arctic weather. We know some of you are experiencing the same. We pray for you and all in danger with this loss of power and cold temperatures. We Texans are strong & resilient but please send your thoughts and prayers for us as we are in this time of emergency.
To our clients:
We have very limited access to the internet and limited phone service. If we have assignments with you, we will update you as soon as we are able. Thank you for understanding!
It has been a very unexpected year for all of us and through it all, we are giving thanks. We believe in giving thanks in all things. We give thanks to you, our clients that have trusted us for your appraisal service needs this year.
Our Thanksgiving time with family will be different this year due to Covid19 concerns but through it all, we are thankful for our family and friends. We have learned to cherish all connections no matter how we are connecting. We wish you the same as you connect with your family and friends, whatever it may look like this year.
“Give thanks not just on Thanksgiving Day, but every day of your life. Appreciate and never take for granted all that you have.”– Catherine Pulsifer

Grayson & Cooke Counties
We wanted to also share an update on some of our more rural markets. We appraise in Cooke and Grayson counties. We have been seeing sale prices rising in these more rural, less dense markets. Some of this is due to affordability. As the prices in the North Texas market have been increasing, many are searching further north to find more affordable homes.
