Austin has moved to the 5th top city, in the US and Canadian markets, for tech talent according to the CBRE Group. Only San Francisco, Washington D.C., Seattle and New York City outrank us. This is due, in part, to the educational attainment, cost of living and, of course, the presence of millennials in this great city.

My wife and I moved to Austin after 25+ years living in Washington, DC. We chose the perfect real estate agent: Violet Leff is professional, experienced and totally committed to her clients. She found us our new home, and helped us make the right offer, one that was quickly accepted. Violet worked with us after the home inspection walking us through the repair list, and helping us negotiate items the inspection spotlighted. We returned to DC knowing we would be well represented by Violet throughout the closing process.
She worked with the condo association and management firm on several issues and advised us on various services we would need. Violet also prepared an extensive list of vendors for jobs we might need done around our condo. She sent us weekly enticements of Austin events to help us remember that our big move to Austin was the right one. A major change and a complicated move for us to make, but Violet was with us all the way.
Now in Austin, Violet has become a friend and just not our real estate agent. We feel that we can call her anytime, and we have, for suggestions on services like dog groomers, vets, hairdressers, and places to shop. Her weekly list of Austin events is even more appreciated now that we are here. She is a great real estate agent who we will certainly recommend without hesitation."
