This is Eric and Welcome to today’s episode of the Austin Real Estate Podcast where I chat with Nancy who is the community manager for Bryson in Leander. (more…)
Did you see this newly listed house that goes to Eanes ISD? I’ve got one for you today in Lost Creek. Built in 1977 (and it shows), with 4 bedrooms and 2 and a half bathrooms this 2 story house is ready for updating.
This place has some cool features: a bridge-like front walkway leading to a split level like home. The main living areas and master bedroom are on the main level with all the kids bedrooms and a large playroom space on the “ground floor”.
But there is a lot of work that would need to be done if you ask me – just look at the kitchen, the wood paneling, and the drop ceiling in the gameroom below the garage. But it does have 3,150 square feet, a formal living room, and dining room, and is liveable now.
If you are interested in this house in Lost Creek, let me know and I’ll arrange a showing if it is still on the market (otherwise I can probably find something else similar for you)

It seems like every few months another national publication is singing the praises of living in Austin. They put out a 10 best neighborhood list, or the top 5 zip codes in Austin, or something similar. Well, I’ve taken all those lists and put them in one easy to reference place for you. (more…)
Real Estate agents are supposed to pick up ALL their open house signs once the open house has ended. I normally do. But this one time I didn’t. Usually leaving out a sign overnight leads to bad things – either the sign will get vandalized or stolen, or a neighbor will call you and ask you (or tell you) to come and get it, or in the worst case, code enforcement can come by and actually fine you.

Just spend a couple of minutes of your day to watch this quick Aerial drone photography tour of Austin. You get to see the city in a way nobody else ever has. You and I live in a 2-dimensional world. We can go left and right, forward and back. Now, with a little technology, we can also see our world from the sky. (more…)
Rollingwood is one of those little neighborhoods that not a lot of people outside of Austin know about. Not only does it have some absolutely stunning homes, but it is also centrally located, and very close to downtown, Zilker Park, and Westlake Hills, but still very private. (more…)
I’ll be honest, Tarrytown is truly one of my favorite neighborhoods in Austin. It’s very close to downtown, has beautiful meandering old-growth tree lined streets, plus each home is unique and different. It’s been said that if you are asked where you live in Austin, the only people who answer Tarrytown are the renters. It reminds me of the neighborhood I grew up in.
One of the smallest developments I’ve written about, Rivercrest is a single street (with multiple cul-de-sacs) of beautiful luxury homes. Built in the 1960’s by the Bohn Family, Beautiful, old growth Pecan trees planted over 30 years ago line the streets and create a relaxed, family friendly neighborhood for the residents
River Place is a fantastic place to live. It’s as far away as Steiner Ranch, and also not as large, but with a hill country feel, and incredible views. just of 2222, and about 15 minutes away from downtown, River Place is close to major employers, as well as tons of outdoor activities. One of those little known area that tons of people drive by everyday, but don’t really know much about it.
Just north of the Old Enfield area of Austin is an even more prestigious area called Pemberton Heights. These majestic, older homes are only a few minutes away from downtown, and are highly desirable because of the location, size, and style of the houses.
What makes a home in Pemberton Heights so sought after? First of all they are typically on larger lots. Secondly this neighborhood is in a great, close in, but private location. North of windsor, and south of Westover, between Mopac and Lamar, residents of Pemberton Heights are close to everything. Additionally, many of the streets twist, and turn, and aren’t major arteries leading downtown.
There is a neighborhood a bit north, and west of the Austin capital called Old Enfield. One of the oldest areas in the city, the stately homes here sit back from streets lined with old growth oaks trees.
Simply called Enfield by most, this small, historical neighborhood shows pride of ownership. Many of the homes were built in the 1920’s and ’30’s but have been been beautifully restored over the years. The front of the homes are old Victorian or colonial, or something similar, but frequently the insides have been completely updated into the ideal soft contemporary house we all dream of.
Lost Creek is an older upscale neighborhood just west of West Lake Hills on the other side of 360 that has beautiful single and multi-level homes, many with views.
Most of the homes were built in the 1970’s and 1980’s. Some have been beautifully updated, while others are ready for your touch and finishes. Most are 3 to 5 bedrooms and around 3,000 square feet. (more…)
