Rooted In Place: Texas Winemakers are Redefining the Taste of Texas
No discussion about the business of feeding the Lone Star State would be complete without consideration of how we quench our Texas-sized thirsts. Today, Texas is the fifth-largest wine-producing state in the country, following California, New York, Washington, and Oregon. Texas CEO Magazine dives into the interests and challenges of being a winemaker in the Lone Star State.

What’s a Cap Rate?
Real estate agents who practice commercial brokerage are quite familiar with the term cap rate, which is short for capitalization rate. The term can be confusing to agents who do not participate in commercial brokerage, and it’s a mystery to most in the general public. However, it is a simple concept and a valuable tool in estimating sales prices of commercial properties.
