To whom it may concern.
My wife and I have enjoyed the services provided by Andrea McGilvray and truthfully say she is one of the most competent realtors we have ever encountered. Andrea did a wonderful and complete research to find properties to show to us. We were pleasantly surprised to find she had researched and found what we were interested in by using the exact parameters we gave her. It was a pleasant experience to work with a realtor who complied with our priorities and not once did she try to entice us to look at something we were not interested in. If anyone is looking for a professional realtor who is tuned in to the customer, one cannot go wrong in opting for Andreas services.

In this challenging real estate market, you need someone you can trust to go the extra mile and I was honored to have had Andrea McGilvray on my team. She has that stellar combination of personal and professional integrity, a friendly approachable manner, and unbelievable work ethic. Her dedication to customer service is evident in all that she does. She kept me informed with automated e-mail updates on newly listed properties, she rearranged her schedule (on more than one occasion) to meet me at properties all over Medina County on weekends and weekdays after I got off work, and she never quit until she found me the perfect property. It was a two-for-one deal where I ended up with keys to my dream home and a wonderful new friendship.

We strongly recommend Cowboy Capital Realty and Andrea McGilvray. Andrea is the Best Realty Agent in the business. She is top notch. Andrea will go the extra mile for her clients to make sure they get the “best deal”. We have relatives and friends that are real estate agents, yet we decided to have Andrea represent us. Unquestionably that was an extremely wise decision. She is professional and personable. Andrea worked tirelessly on our behalf and kept us informed “every step of the way”. We could not be more pleased. We will certainly contract with her again if we ever need her.

The Feds are suing Arizona. The height of stupidity. All the federal government has to do is run the presses a little longer to pay for their expenses. Arizona doesn’t have that luxury.
What can you do? Well, we now have an opportunity to put our money where our mouth is. Arizona has set up a web site enabling us to donate to their Border Security and Immigration Legal Defense fund. They take all the standard credit cards.

Five transactions/12 months back for now in Texas – SAFE Act on hold.
Well here in Texas it is again the same as before until the legislative changes during the coming months can make other changes.. We were told that June 1st, no owner financing, now we are back again to what Texas originally had. The Texas Department of Savings and Mortgage Lending has taken significant steps to allow Texas property owners to continue to seller finance up to five (5) transactions in a 12 month period. The commissioner has delayed the implementation of the SAFE Act requirement for liscensure in seller-financed transactions in Texas until August31, 2010. Well we will see what happens.

Concerning agenda item X, the Board President started with offering us choices of allowing them to issue pumping permits to the Trinity Aquifer that would draw it down another 20, 30 or 40 feet on average, as our Desired Futue Condition (DFC) for the year 2060. At that point, hands started raising and public comment was recognized which was overwhelmingly in favor of a zero net drawdown average as our DFC.
After a lively debate with the board and then, among themselves, they ended up voting for no more than a 10 foot decline.
Because the Trinity aquifer in our area is affected by what happens in the surrounding districts mainly to the north, we hope that they follow our example. Ultimately, we come under GMA-9 jurisdiction, and whatever DFC consensus they reach. The vote by our board is considered a victory for local conservation, given the three initial alternatives.
Director Kneupper had two important items on the agenda which passed.
Item XIII, to permit all unpermitted wells which require permits, and Item XIV, to have meters installed on existing permitted wells and to get pumping reports from them. The district will gain valuable data from these meters, which will help in planning future pumping limits.
Thanks to Lee for fighting the good fight to stabilize and prevent declines in groundwater and springflows, and thank the Good Lord for the abundant rain we received this week.

Finally, you may resume closing loans with flood insurance. It is indeed retroactive to June 1.
Tax deadline has been extended to September 30th and
USDA unfortunately has not been.
Please see comments below
The Congress has passed the following:
· Tax credit processing extension
The Congress has passed H.R. 5623, the Homebuyer Assistance and Improvement Act, which extends the tax credit closing deadline until September 30th. There will also be no gap between June 30th and the date the President signs the bill into law. The extension only applies to transactions in which the purchase contract was signed by April 30th.
· Flood insurance extension
The Senate has passed H.R. 5569 which extends the National Flood Insurance Program until September 30, 2010. The bill is retroactive from June 1, 2010 to the date the President also signs this bill.
There is still no decision on the USDA extension. Since the Senate adjoined until July 12th, the House must decide whether to accept the supplemental appropriations bill passed by the Senate or it will be necessary to delay final action on the USDA extension until after the July 4th recess.
