I’ve been told that I’m the Winter Texan whisperer.  I laughed when I first heard it; then I heard it again…and again…and again.  People always ask me how I do it – how I have the ability to connect with so many retirees from across the United States and Canada.  Well, to be honest, it’s not rocket science.  But there IS a secret ingredient.  You have to care.  And I do.  A LOT.  The truth is that I really, REALLY love them.  In order to have any strong relationship, you have to show you care.  I know that is what sets us apart from others who are ‘in the business.’

One thing’s for sure, I want prospective Winter Texans to know that they’ll be in good hands while they winter in South Texas.  And for those of you who are ‘seasoned’ Winter Texas or Converted Texans – you already know you’re about to have an amazing winter.  At Welcome Home RGV, we work tirelessly to keep you informed of what’s going on across the Rio Grande Valley and, in some cases, beyond!  We’ll not only keep you up to date, but we’ll be right there in the trenches with you, whether that be on a bike ride, at happy hour, at a craft show, or on the dance floor.  We might even try to beat you at a game of cards!

We truly look forward to spending the winter with you.  Safe travels to those of you who are on the road, and we’ll see you in South Texas real soon.

We’re just connecting the dots,

    Parents enjoyed 25 years in the RGV residing at http://www.pine2palm.com Park Weslaco, we were able to retire and spend a few years with them before they stopped coming down at age 86. There is so much to see and do in the Valley, you can be as busy or relaxed as you want. Check out the website for rates, rentals and come enjoy your self in the south! One caution, if you come for a month, you will probably end up buying a place and will enjoy many years with great friends, activities while loving life. Would encourage everyone to rent for a month (1,000 – 1,400 a month) fully furnished just bring your personal effects and check it out. We attend dances, shuffle tournaments, play ball, golf with people from many parks in the area and they are all great. In our park there are no strangers just friends you haven’t met yet. Y’all come down and check us out!
