Cris (Crouch) Graham
Owner and President, Hondo’s on Main
Owner and VP, Luckenbach-Texas, Inc.

 

Cris was born and raised in Fredericksburg Texas as a fifth generation German settler in the Texas Hill Country. Her father is the very famous, Hondo Crouch.

She graduated from Selwyn School in Denton and attended the University of Denver. Cris then worked as a Montessori teacher at St. Mary’s Hall in San Antonio.

As an Air Force wife living in The Netherlands, she was responsible for American families stationed in that country while their husbands were deployed to Desert Storm.

After her husband retired from the Air Force, the family returned to Fredericksburg.

After returning to Fredericksburg, she went to work at Luckenbach, managing the store and co-producing Willie Nelson’s Fourth of July Picnic for five years.

A few years later, she opened Hondo’s on Main in Fredericksburg, combining the magic of Luckenbach with great food and music.

She has also served as a member of The Governor’s Commission on Women and the State Preservation Board. Earlier this year, she moved some more of the Luckenbach magic to Main Street in Fredericksburg, opening Luckenbach on Main.

Cris has two grown children – Alice Welder and Major John S. Graham – and five grandchildren.

About the author:

I took early retirement in 1995 from Kodak and I have been in the real estate business since then. During my Kodak career my family lived in six states and we owned thirteen homes. I held positions as Food Trade Manager, Attractions Manager for Florida, Director of Sales Promotion, National Account Manager to HEB Grocery Company and National Sales Manager – US Military – Worldwide. In the twelve years since I retired from Kodak, I’ve been in the real estate business. My entry into the business was through two major agencies; one a local upscale boutique company and the other a very large local operation of a national franchise. I found both (plus most others in the business) to be more oriented towards gross sales and less towards taking care of the needs of the consumer. As a result, I formed my own company. I have three agents besides myself in the company and two staff personnel. Approximately ninety percent of our business comes from direct referrals plus we represent all of the relocating employees for three corporations. Each week I host the area real estate show, Real Estate Focus, on NewsTalk 930 KLUP, Saturdays at 11:00am. The show also streams live on my web site , http://www.HeartofTexasRealty.com and on http://www.KLUP.com. In addition, Bjorn Dybdahl, owner of Bjorn’s Home Entertainment, http://www.Bjorns.com and I host the San Antonio Movers and Shakers Show that airs at 10:00 am each Saturday from the same station and web sites. The real estate show deals with area real estate information and the SA Movers and Shakers show honors the education, business, civic, and public leaders who keep the entrepreneurial spirit alive in our city.
