Jaime, I have answered a couple of your questions already, but you asked them as a buyer from Pittsburgh. Are you from Pittsburgh looking to relocate, or are you a Realtor in San Marcos?

Downtown will be your best bet. I've lived there for 4 years, and not one roach or scorpion. Thank Goodness! There are great new buildings on the East Side as well. Minimal trees, means minimal tree roaches. Your pest control contact is absolutely correct.

Because it is so vague, I would contact these people:

Student Services Division
Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board
PO Box 12788
Austin TX 78711-2788
(512) 427-6387
(800) 242-3062, ext. 6387
e-mail: grantinfo@thecb.state.tx.us

If you need any additional help, feel free to reach out. Downtown and Central Austin are my specialties.

Best, Charles

Austin is an oasis of sorts located 3.5 hrs south of Dallas/Ft Worth, 2.5 hours west of Houston amd 1.5 hours north of San Antonio, on the eastern edge of the hill country. Homes range in the upper 100's into the millions, depending on proxcimity to downtown Austin and your amenities of interest.

Austin is the birth place of Whole Foods Market, host city of the SXSW and ACL festivals and Circuit of the Americas F1 racing beginning Nov 2012, and home to the University of Texas.

If you are interested I'd be happy to send you out a relocation guide, all I need is an address and your contact information.

Hello Tally,

I would scout out the area. You will be fairly close to the Dell Campus either way. Both areas are highly congested so I would look around and when you find an area or home you like test it out for yourself and see if you can deal with it.

Best of luck to you.

Hi Ella,

The school district that has a reutation for being the best is Eanes ISD. However, there are many great schools in the Austin Area. Westlake High, Westwood High and LBJ are ranked among the top 100 public high schools in the country by Newsweek.

http://www.newsweek.com/id/39380

See these ratings for additional information:

I really don't know much about the dance scene, but I'm sure I could ask around.

Feel free to contact me if you have additional questions.
