You can also google up a realtor in Kyle and use the MLS link on their website. It probably has an auto-capture feature that will get you a call or an e-mail from a realtor, but that's a small inconvenience or it could find you your realtor. The feeds we are given by the MLS to link to our websites are not as convenient to use as our direct access MLS, but the information is the same and it's accurate.
To be honest with you your best bet if you have an area of interest is to contact a local agent who covers your area of interest.
The main problem with the various abc's in web sites is the information and how up to date it is.
REALTORS can bring up the most recent information based on a profile you help to determin and sent the program up so as new listings matching your interest are emailed to you as they hit the wire.
If you need help in the Kyle area I would be glad to assist, just drop me an email kevin.roy@ERA.com...
Neither Trulia nor Zillow are tied the the Multilpe Listing Services for those areas. Youre best bet is to choose a Realtor and have them set up a home search based on your home criteria. You want a Buyers Agent to help you with the transaction. If you see a home and call the Listing Agent, to see the house, you should know the listing agent works for and represents the Seller. You want to have a Realtor representing your best interest.
If you would like me to create a search for you I would be happy to do so. I am working with a local builder working in Kyle and I have been holding some new construction homes open in Four Seasons Farm. Feel free to drop by 431 Summer Drive 11-5 Sun-Thurs or 11-4 Saturday to meet and discuss how I can help you.

You best bet is to use http://www.Realtor.com website for searching, as it is linked with the Austin Multiple Listing Service. Then you need to find a good Realtor that can assist you with your purchase. Buyer Representation does not cost you anything, the Seller pays all Realtor fees. Make sure you have a Buyers agent on your side, so you don't leave any money on the table. I would be happy to assist you with your home search. Of course you may call me if you have other questions, or if you would like me to email you all of the currently Active Kyle listings. Have a great day & good luck with your new home purchase!
