A few areas to initially consider are:
Great Hills Area (near the Arboretum)
Westlake (includes the cities of West Lake Hills, Rollingwood, and West Austin to City of Bee Cave)

Feel free to contact me with any questions. I have been working as a residential broker here since 1982. I have seen commute times go from 15 minutes to an hour during rush hours and prices go from $50,000 to $400,000 plus! We live in a great city and it seems as though the whole world knows it!
Good luck with your move! If you would like any more information on the area or other suggestions, please let me know. I work in the largest real estate office in Austin with hundreds of talented agents, so I can find an answer to pretty much any question.
Thank you and have a great evening,

From the looks of the map, your office should be around Bee Caves Rd and Loop 360. Loop 360 is a four-lane divided highway that has a lot of traffic lights and can back up during rush hour. Fortunately Bee Caves Rd is a high capacity road where many commuters exit.
The neighborhood where your office will be located is one of the most scenic neighborhoods in town and also one of the priciest. Homes around this area are zoned for Eanes ISD and start around $500,000 and just go up from there.
What price range are you looking to stay in? I know of several neighborhoods that have well ranked schools and are close to your office. These neighborhoods tend to be around the mid 200s to the low 400s. Oak Hill is one that comes to mind. Oak Hill is an easy commute to your office of around 15-20 minutes and close to just about everything in South West Austin.
If you'd like some more information, please contact me. I would be happy to help you as I am quite familiar with the neighborhoods in South West Austin. I also work with a lot of relocating buyers and can help to coordinate everything remotely.
I have great success when clients are willing to take time to meet and which has lead to positive buying experiences with less surprises.

In the meantime, you can also check google maps to see live and predicted traffic to your selected destinations. What is your threshold for a desirable commute time? How much are you willing to spend? Answering these questions will get you started in the process of making your move.
Some great zip codes to look into are 78704, 78722, 78745, 78748 and 78613. Those are all good areas and it just depends what your budget is. Do you know where you will be working yet? As being closer to work is probably a priority too. Are you looking to rent or buy?
I hope that helps! Good luck and if you need more help, I would be happy to help you and your family. I have worked with many families re-locating to Austin.
