Padre Islanders use a phrase that denotes a state-of-mind as much as a geographic location:  “Over the Bridge…(O.T.B.)"

That bridge spans the Gulf Intracoastal Waterway and, along with the JFK Causeway, the Laguna Madre, which separates Padre Island from the mainland in Corpus Christi, Texas.

Islanders appreciate the amenities afforded by both sides of the bridge, but have “voted with their feet” regarding their preference.

A planned urban development begun in the late 1960s has become a place unlike anywhere else.  We will understand if you become as infatuated with Padre Island as we are.

Fortunately, we still have room for new neighbors, and we welcome them warmly.  Enjoy our island home, and let me know if I can be of service.

Business Philosophy

I will provide my clients with the timely information and advice
they need to become confident, competent buyers and sellers.

Regarding Texas...

Texas is different from other states, and becoming a
Texan can be a frustrating process. Having 
moved from Michigan, I can help you to anticipate
adjustments out-of-staters must make during and after
relocation. Researching differences in housing markets,
taxation processes, utility company options, insurance,
etc. can become time-consuming drudgery. 
I can help you with these issues.
