Thursday San Antonio Real Estate Things

Katie Burke with the San Antonio Business Journal wrote about the contentious San Antonio Board of Realtors meeting that removed the Chairwoman.

The San Antonio Business Journal also announced the finalists for top luxury real estate teams, top teams and top farm and ranch agents. Jason Glast Luxury is in the running for top luxury real estate team that we won last year. But, as they say in Hollywood, it's an honor just to be nominated. The awards get handed out on April 20th.

I've yet to see a well-known custom luxury builder in San Antonio get in this much hot water as this Dallas builder is in.
