I am a Texan that took a 20 year hiatus to California, specifically, the Bay Area. When I returned to Texas in 2006 there was no question where, in Texas, I wanted to settle: Austin!

But did you know that Austin also leads the nation in small business startups?  Startups have grown at 9.7 percent from 2010 - 2013 with all other cities trailing by 3% or more. In comparison, San Jose, the heart of Silicone Valley fell way behind with small business growth of only 4.3 percent.  

With 147 newcomers per day or 9.1 percent growth, Austin also tops the nation in attracting new residents. Businesses are recruiting talent to Austin from all across the nation.

If you are buying or selling in Austin, it would be my privilege to serve as your Realtor.
