Congratulations on choosing Ausitn! It is a wonderful city with so much to offer.
From your request, I can see that you are interested in working at a hospital and would like your home to be close to that hospital.
There are many different choices to consider. There are a number of top notch hospitals in Austin, Round Rock, Cedar Park, etc...
If you could provide a bit more information, I would be able to give you some better answers to your questions about options in these areas. Once you have the option, you can check some specific police websites for crime statistics. This will allow you to compare your level of tolerance with the types of things that are happening in the neighborhood.
I am a full time agent in the Austin area. I completed 4 sales in September with 2 listings on top of this. I have a great october underway as well.
I love working with people in finding their ideal home, community, area, neighborhood, etc... It is was makes me tick.
Let me know if I can help.
