If you are not going to directly manage your duplex, I recommend that you contact Gus Rojo at West Campus Living (phone: 512-472-9378). We've worked with other property management companies in Austin, but I recommend West Campus Living http://www.westcampusliving.com because they are responsive and have consistently provided us and our tenants with excellent service.
Good luck with your investment!

This is exactly what they do, every day.
He owns this space in the market and you'd be doing yourself a disservice by not interviewing him and his team for consideration. I've copied him in this email as well, but certainly reach out to them with a phone call if you are serious.
Best of success.
Depending on the specifics, I may be able to help you out. I have eight years experience in Real Estate here in Austin and the majority of that work has been with investors both local and from out of state. Any respectable Realtor will tell you that we all have certain areas of expertise, I specialize in central and east Austin properties. If my experience might be of help, feel free to give me a call or shoot me an email with a little more information about what you are looking for and the areas you are interested in. If it's not in my wheelhouse, I would be happy to recommend another Realtor that would do a great job for you.
