Austin is full of fun and things to do 365 days a year. Austin is written up to be a great place for singles, but it is also a great place for families. If you are into food, the restaurant scene in Austin is growing. I love introducing people people to Austin and all it has to offer.

Never been better! SXSW brought in a lot of money to the local economy. This is similar to cities that host major sports events such as the Super Bowl, All-Star Game etc... The local economy and the local infrastructure is strong which is why Austin can support and strive an event such as SXSW!

The world is discovering Austin as a place to be ... Austinites are, for the most part, casual, laid back, music and art lovers, in tune with high-tech, world travelers or simply urban farmers wanting to grow food without pesticides. We tolerate those who want to raise chickens in their backyards and encourage urban farms and community gardens. We have survived the economic downturn coming out on top of most of the rest of the US. Housing is quickly coming back and people are finding jobs - You can be yourself in Austin and realize your dreams, maintain a healthy lifestyle, enjoy the wild flowers, listen to music everywhere and dine on some of the best food served from our famous "food trailers". Austin offers almost anything you could ask for ... if you want to search for property and put down a stake in the Austin real estate market, just go to
