Texas has been named a "job mecca" by John Scott in his recent article "Job meccas in the USA" published on July 13, 2016. Texas took the second place after North Dakota with a job growth of 19.17% in the past 10 years. The 2 main industries are energy and health care.
According to the Austin Chamber of Commerce, Austin added 37,300 new jobs from June 2015 to June 2016 making Austin the third fastest growing major metro. The fastest growing industries have been construction and natural resources (10.5%) and wholesale trade (10.1%).
Austin still feels like a small city while offering an array of opportunities for professionals and families. I have been an Austin resident since 2004 and love calling this city "home".

"Young First-Time Homebuyers - August 2015
We had the good fortune to be recommended Violet's services this summer when we decided to purchase a house in Austin and cannot overstate how helpful, resourceful, and determined she was through the entire process.
We went into our search with high expectations for our intended budget and some less than common requests and Violet was not only unfazed by this, but immediately sought to rise to the challenge. She responded to calls and emails at practically all hours of the day from when we first contacted her until we closed, and even when we became frustrated or discouraged never wavered or slowed down searching for us.
She never hesitated to give us honest opinions even when it wasn't what we wanted to hear, and saved us from more than one serious mistake by doing so. She was unflinching and uncompromising dealing with sellers representatives and always made sure to protect our interests. And she helped us compromise between ourselves on difference we hadn't even thought about before she brought them to our attention.
We've been home owner's for just over a month now thanks to Violet and are incredibly happy with the property she helped us acquire. If you are searching for a realtor who simply will not give up you need look no further."
