Congratulations on the (possible) relocation to Texas!
The best way to get started in your search would be to contact a local real estate agent who can work with out of area buyers. Because you are not local, you will need someone who is familiar with the technology necessary to complete a transaction without ever seeing you.
Austin in the home of Keller Williams and has a ton of agents in the area that are all top notch. I would be happy to give you the name of an agent in the area who is an e-PRO certified agent that would be familiar with your situation and needs.
Please feel free to give me a call or shoot me an email and I will get you in touch with them.
It's more than real estate. It's RAYL-Estate!
