On Saturday, March 5, 2016, International Dark-Sky Association (IDA) Texas, the City of Dripping Springs, and the Hays County Chapter of Texas Master Naturalist will host the Texas Night Sky Festival, a free celebration of the Texas Night Sky!
Participants will join in fun citizen science activities, learn from engaging speakers and exhibits, see examples of good lighting for their home or business, view school projects and competition entries focused on protecting the night sky, feast at the food trucks, take home a book or work of art inspired by the night sky, earn a related scouting badge, or explore the stars.
The intent of the Festival is to increase the appreciation of the night sky and the world around us. This goes hand in hand with increasing awareness about the type of lighting that provides needed light while it reduces glare, saves money, eliminates light trespass, protects the health and safety of living things, and saves our common view of the night sky.
Vendors and exhibitors will be sharing displays and demonstrations related to the night sky, things inspired by the night sky, or how to protect the night sky. Displays of shielded outdoor lighting, light pollution reduction efforts, educational materials about our natural world, literature relating to the night sky, astronomical equipment, and other items relevant to the night sky are just a few of the aspects of the desired exhibits.
Save the date to join us for a fun family event! If you have any questions, please call 512-858-4725.

We are so glad that you have visited the Rivers & Oaks website and hope that you will explore a little bit. We have attempted to create a space where clients can access information about what is going on in their communities, and future clients can learn about the region and the current market in areas of Austin and the Texas Hill Country.
Time is so precious in our busy world these days. That is why we feel so deeply that simply planting a ‘for sale’ sign in a front yard, or taking a client by a home they wish to view is really only the very ‘tip of the iceberg’. We want to arm our clients with all of the relevant information to assist them in making a good decision about their real estate choices and bringing a deal to a successful and satisfactory conclusion.
What we strive to bring to each of our clients is access to my deep knowledge of the real estate market, real estate principles, and a commitment to work very hard to identify and service my clients’ real estate needs completely. A very valuable distinction that we believe we can offer our clients is Stacy's many years of experience as a real estate appraiser in Central Texas. This informs her examination of properties and evaluation of market value and potentials. Further, she has substantial experience in remodeling homes as well, and this provides me with an excellent working knowledge of issues in a home which may present a problem, or which can be capitalized upon to market and sell a property more efficiently. We work as a Team here at Rivers & Oaks Realty so all our agents and brokers are available to help you and yours through out your real estate transaction.
My goal is simple ...
A key part of providing the best service to our clients is to provide them with the guidance and support needed throughout the entire selling or buying experience. We want to provide the very best service to our clients. This means that for the home seller, we want to ensure that every home listed through us is given the attention necessary to properly promote it in the marketplace, and that every buyer whom we assist receives everything they need to find the home for which they've been looking. A key part of providing the best service to our clients is our communication. You will be able to reach Stacy or a member of our team at any time for all your buying and selling needs.

"I found Stacy on-line. This is one of the best on line service I have ever requested. She has been available at least 16 hours a day. She helped me with the negotiations and was also extremely helpful in explaining what my options were, which helped me make decisions on what property would best suit my needs. If I had questions about prices she navigated me through those.
When we looked at property, due to her appraisal experience she would point out positives as well as any negatives. I think she has gone way above what most real estate agents would do for you. She is always upbeat and will hold your hand through the process if you need help. She stayed on top of all the processes."
