Do you have a home or Condo to sell and would like to keep more of your own money?

We are here to help you do that… Homes we market below a sale price of $249,999 are charged a 1.5% commission fee*. Homes listed between $250,000 – $649,999 are charge a Flat Fee of only $3,500* and homes listed above $650,000 are charge a commission fee of 1.5%*.

The only discount is in the commission we charge and not in our service, you will receive full representation throughout the transaction. You get the same extreme service without the big commission.

 

Traditional Listing Fees and How It Works

Although everything in real estate is negotiable we will use 6% in this example. A traditional listing fee works as so… An Agent/Realtor charges a homeowner a 6% commission, the agent could then sell the listing to his/her own clients and receive the full commission.

Most often an Agent looks towards the thousands of San Antonio Realtors to help sell the property quickly, this is done by entering the home in the Multiple Listing Service (MLS) system. Once listed in the MLS system a commission is then offered to a cooperating Agent (Buyers Agent), most often the commission is split 3% – 3% ( although everything is negotiable).

Now that we have an idea of how the fees are paid and or split, lets see how we differ with a Flat Fee MLS Listing and our Discounted Half Priced Listing Fee… It’s SIMPLE, when we list a home for sale our commission fee is 1.5%* we then offer a Buyers Agent a full 3% commission totaling 4.5% to sell your home.

Camp Bullis

Camp Bullis

Established in 1917, Camp Bullis was originally used as one of many training sites for the American Expeditionary Force soon to be sent to Europe. Used as a small arms and rifle range for Fort Sam Houston, no units were stationed at the Camp. After World War I, the Camp served as a training site for various civilian and military organizations, including the Civilian Military Training Corps, the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC), the Reserve Officer Training Corps (ROTC) and the Officer Reserve Corps. During World War II, the 2nd, 95th, and 88th Infantry Divisions used Camp Bullis. After the war, 500,000 soldiers were processed out through the separation center at the Camp. In 1977, the Air Force established the Air Force Security Police (Air Force Security Forces) Training Site at Camp Bullis. The Air Force was subsequently the single largest user of the camp until 1987.

Health-care specialists training in the US Army, otherwise known as medics, travel from Fort Sam Houston to Camp Bullis to complete a two week field training exercise at the end of their advanced individual training. During the two weeks, they learn much about a medic’s role in infantry affairs. The first day they are issued M16A2s, and are introduced to chemical warfare. During the next eight days they spend a day and a half on various infantry tactics and the medic’s role in such. During the last five days they put into practice everything they have learned. The most sleep the medics get through all their training is in the field- about eight hours of night, in addition to daily showers and hot chow in the morning and evenings, accompanied with MREs for lunch.

Brooks City Base

Brooks City Base

Brooks City Base, formerly Brooks Air Force Base, and before that variously Gosport Field and Kelly Field #5, is located slightly to the south-east of downtown San Antonio. At the dawn of American military aviation, Brooks and Kelly were comfortably far out enough in the country that aviators of fixed wing and lighter-than-air flying machines could train without endangering any but themselves. Brooks Field was officially established in 1918 as a training base for the Air Service of the US Army Signal Corps. For some years, Brooks Field was the Army Air Corps primary flight training school, until that mission relocated to Randolph AFB. After that, Brooks became the new home for the Aerial Observation Center.

Following World War II, Brooks was the home for several reserve and tactical units, officially becoming an Air Force Base with the establishment of the Air Force as a separate service. In the early 1950s, Brooks became home to the Aerospace Medical Center – to include the School for Aerospace Medicine (SAM), which would deal in research with applicability to flight and space exploration. President John F. Kennedy’s last official act as president was to dedicate the SAM building on November 21, 1963. He was assassinated the following day in Dallas.

The mission of Brooks AFB continued to be focused on science and medical research with regard to aviation and space flight, including aerospace medical learning, aircrew health assessment, and such activities as the Air Force’s drug testing lab, and an occupational and environmental health lab.

In the mid 1990s, when Brooks was listed as excess for current military needs and slated for closure by the Base Realignment and Realignment Commission, a plan was worked out by city, state, local and military planners to privatize Brooks, essentially to replace military activities with a mix of civic and privately owned scientific, or educational establishments.

Brooks is also home to the Museum of Aerospace Medicine, or “Hanger 9” – a World War I-era frame aircraft hanger, the single remaining hanger of 16, built in Brooks’ earliest days, when flight training was accomplished in Curtiss JN-4 “Jennies”. Hanger 9 is listed as a national historic monument.

Currently, Brooks City Base is home to the Air Force’s 311Air Base Group. The military mission is expected to close in 2011.

Neighborhoods and suburbs adjacent to Brooks City Base include Highland Hills, Stinson Park and Kingsborough Park. Brooks City Base is also a short distance from San Antonio Missions National Historic Park, and Mission San Juan Capistrano.

 

 

The Alamo in downtown San Antonio

The Alamo in downtown San Antonio

Deep within the heart of downtown San Antonio lays an infamous part of Texas state history.  More than 2.5 million individuals a year visit “The Alamo” on a yearly basis.  This 4.2 acre historic piece of land is essentially the resting place of the 300 year old mission where a small fraction of native Texans found themselves holed up for a full 13 days against the Mexican army, headed by General Antonio Lopez de Santa Anna in 1836.

Many remember the stories of James Bowie, William B. Travis, and David Crockett who fought gallantly despite what would be obviously grim outcomes.  Yes, although the defenders of the Alamo lost the battle and inevitably their lives, The Alamo has become something of a symbol of courage against impossible odds and a staple for the undeniable Texas spirit of valor.  Many of The Alamo’s visitors feel a deep rooted connection with this historic landmark and it is no wonder that many individuals do indeed, “Remember the Alamo.”

The greatest part of this location, aside from being able to see and touch a pivotal moment in Texas history is the fact that The Alamo is free to visit.  Since 1905 The Alamo has been headed by the daughters of the Republic of Texas and only receives monetary funds from governmental agencies, patron donations, and money made from the gift shop. The Alamo is also open all year around with the exception of Christmas Even and Christmas Day and rests in the Alamo Plaza.

Ripley’s Believe It or Not at San Antonio

Ripley’s Believe It or Not at San Antonio

Where in the world can one go toe to toe with celebrities and see strange and unusual items from all across the globe? The answer of course lies in the state of the art, interactive Ripley’s Believe It or Not at San Antonio, Texas. Just across from The Alamo and against the San Antonio River Walk, Ripley’s Believe It or Not is not only accessible but offers visitors a memorable experience. Many individuals recognize the name from the famous travel tome full of oddities and wonders, and the physical location upholds the book’s standards to the tee. Within the Ripley’s family the area features many different unique tourist attractions such as the Guinness World Records Museum or Louis Tussaud’s Wax Works Museum.

Each of these offers their own unique experience, and although each may bear their own ticket price, one would certainly want to see what the whole of Ripley’s has to offer. The Guinness World Records Museum, for instance, is what resembles the famous book the most with 10,000 square feet of exhibits, videos, games, and artifacts all devoted to world records. Ripley’s Haunted Adventure is a state of the art, million dollar haunted house like no other. Inclusive of this attraction visitors will be exposed with live actors, elaborate stages, animatronics, and special effects which all work together to bring the haunted story to life. Visitors that don’t have a taste for the fear-inducing can instead take pictures with wax celebrities in Louis Tussaud’s or ride through ancient tombs in Tomb Rider.

SeaWorld San Antonio

Seaworld San Antonio

When an individual thinks of San Antonio, Texas this is one of the places he or she immediately envisions.  SeaWorld San Antonio is a vast theme park that is far more than a simple place to see stunning orcas or playful, chattering dolphins.  SeaWorld San Antonio is, instead, a world in which land dwellers can take part in the wonders of the sea; all at an affordable price and through a mountain of fun and exciting interaction.

In many ways SeaWorld San Antonio is the prized jewel of the city and many travel from all over the world just to visit this aquatic amusement park and take part in its many offerings.  Those that visit SeaWorld San Antonio can see the well known Shamu show, or enjoy attractions that are catered just for young children.  There are also many different rides one can go on, such as the Great White, or the electrifying Steel Eel.

Many visitors simply go just to see the animals that SeaWorld San Antonio offers and those that do will not park area. be disappointed.  Many interactions are available with the price of admission, and although some cost additional fees, such as interacting with the Beluga Whales, the prices are well worth it for this once in a lifetime opportunity.

A subsection of the park Aquatica offers much more to see and do.  There are additional rides, more animal interactions, such as with the Sting Rays, as well as even more heart pounding rides and slides in the expansive water.

Today’s Lackland Air Force Base

Today’s Lackland Air Force Base

Lackland Air Force Base, popularly known as the “Gateway to the Air Force,” is located at the edge of San Antonio’s south-west suburbs, and is unique for several reasons. It is a training base, and has been ever since construction began on a permanent facility to train aviation cadets in 1941. If you have served in the US Air Force at any time since the Korean War, the odds are very high that you have come to Lackland, since it was designated the main training base for officer and enlisted Army Air Force recruits in 1946, and continued in that capacity for the Air Force – although wartime demands during Korea and Vietnam sent overflow training missions temporarily to other bases in Texas, California and New York.

Another singular oddity of Lackland is that for many years, it was an Air Force base without a flight line. Beginning as just another annex of Kelly – and housed in tents and flimsy temporary barracks, Lackland drew in more training missions, more and more buildings and schools, eventually becoming the sole provider of enlisted Basic Military Training (BMT) for regular active duty Air Force, Air Force Reserve and Air National Guard, even as Air Force basic and commissioned officer training moved to Maxwell AFB, Alabama. Ironically, in 2001, Lackland’s parent base of Kelly AFB shrank to a mere field annex of Lackland, following the closing of the San Antonio Air Logistics Center. With that closing, Lackland finally acquired an operational flight-line and a flying mission. Being relatively new, in contrast to established military bases around San Antonio – Randolph, Brooks, Kelly and Fort Sam Houston – Lackland itself boasts little in the way of historic buildings. Historical relics are confined to a half-century of aviation history, on static display around the perimeter of the parade grounds. Aircraft on display there include a B-52 Stratofortress, F-4 Phantom II, an SR-71 Blackbird, C-121 Constellation, B-17 Flying Fortress and a B-25 Mitchell. Every Friday morning, Lackland AFB hosts graduation exercises and parades at that parade ground, for graduates of Air Force Basic Military Training.

Well into the 1990s, much of Lackland was housed in WWII/Korea era one or two-storey temporary buildings. Beginning in the late 1960s, when these structures were well past their “best if used by date,” substantial renovations and upgrades began with the construction of Wilford Hall. A modern, permanent 9-story hospital building and a 500-bed wing added several years later replaced a sprawl of 94 flimsy temporary buildings. A series of huge, and rather futuristic-appearing structures – with a ground-level core housing classrooms, mess halls and offices, and multiple upper-level barracks wings, built out on stilts above concrete pads which afforded shelter from the weather consolidated and replaced facilities which had formerly been scattered just as much as the hospital operations.

Today, Lackland hosts more than just Basic Military Training. Working dogs and handlers for the DOD and various federal agencies are trained at Lackland, as well as Air Force Security Police personnel, pararescue specialists, explosive ordinance disposal experts and tactical air control, as well as enlisted aircrew specialists are all trained at Lackland. The Air Force Audit agency, Air Force News, and Tops in Blue – the annual traveling Air Force talent contest are all headquartered there as well as the Defense Language Institute’s English Language Center, and the Inter-American Air Forces Academy, which offers technical training for enlisted students from Air Forces throughout North and South America and the Caribbean. Another portion of Lackland, formerly a part of Kelly, is the Security Hill complex, which houses the Air Forces’s Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance Agency, among others.

Nearby attractions include San Antonio’s Sea World, and Nelson Wolff Stadium, home of San Antonio’s minor-league baseball team, the San Antonio Missions – who often host ‘military nights.’ Suburbs and developments close to Lackland include Lackland Terrace, Rainbow Hills, Adams Hill, Heritage and Oak Creek.
