Save Austin Opera House & Arlyn Studios in SoCo, Travis Heights

Click here for the website to preserve the Austin Opera House In 1977, what would become an Austin institution popped up on 200 Academy Drive. Willie Nelson had envisioned a venue that brought together all walks of life through music. And the Austin Opera House did just that. Performances from Stevie Ray Vaughn to Muddy Waters, Tom Waits, and more helped establish 200 Academy a hotbed of the hippie-soul-cowboy crowd that has long defined Austin's music scene.  Now, we wish to revive the creative spirit at the core of our city's foundation. The Austin we know today would be nothing without its history, and the Opera House is at the center of that history. Amongst the phases and stages that our beloved Austin has undergone, there is no better time to reintroduce the community to the institution that helped create it. In supporting this mission, we will also be able to preserve the legendary Arlyn Studios - Austin's premier recording facility which has lived on the same Academ

Per KXAN News; Westlake gets a new Celebrity Actor & Real Estate Owner.....James Marsden of X-Men, Cyclops fame

  Actor James Marsden purchases home in Westlake, Texas. by:  Jaclyn Ramkissoon ,  Bob Goldsborough, San Antonio Express-News Posted:  Jan 17, 2022 / 03:13 PM CST   /  Updated:  Jan 17, 2022 / 10:07 PM CST Click here for the direct link to the KXAN News Article AUSTIN (KXAN) — Records show actor James Marsden in May bought a home estimated to be around $1.8 million in the Commons Ford area of Austin,  the San Antonio Express-News reports . The Commons Ford area is located in between Bee Cave and West Lake Hills. The Express-News says the five-bedroom, four and a half-bath house was built in 2007. The property is a little over one acre. The Express-News says while we don’t know exactly what Marsden paid for the home, public records show the actor “took out a loan against the house for the principal amount of $1.84 million,” which could give an idea of what the home was selling for. Marsden previously mentioned in late 2020 on “Live with Kelly and Ryan” he had moved to Austin and was ren

The Marfa, West Texas Trip & Blog Post

First, this trip  adventure and photo album is graciously dedicated to the kind couple of Mr. Don & Mrs. Linda Shafer. Don and Linda Shafer are Austin Silent Market real estate clients and  are original friends with my broker Dad George Sears McGee. I, George Vance McGee befriended Don and & Linda during casual passerby's in Clarksville West Austin as a fellow resident. I was an 7-8 year Clarksville loft studio renter. Don and Linda mentioned they spend parts of their year in a "pre-fabricated"  Modern Home and Guest Home they own & frequent in Marfa, Texas. The Shafers' created this estate on a gorgeous View-tastic hilltop. It's called, "the Glass House." I'd personally describe the town and ambiance of Marfa Texas, as quiet, artsy, sleepy, and cool with a touch of NYC/Brooklyn Hipster sprinkled on top. All while still retaining West Texas authenticity.  My wife and I were fortunate enough to be house guests for 1 week. Here were some of
