ATX Welcome Home!

"People don’t live in Austin to work; they work to live there.” Robert Rodriguez, filmmaker and screenwriter

From USA Today's Creative Culinary Capitol to Forbes number 1 city for jobs, and Niche naming it tops for retirees, some of us simply call this Music Capitol of Texas, Austin, "home"...and we think you should, too!

Though this part of Central Texas is by far the most beautiful part of the state, don't take my word for it. Let's take a drive through the city, and you can see for yourself. First stop Rollingwood and West Lake Hills: Situated in the middle of Austin, surrounded by hills and trees, Mopac and Capital of Texas Highway...and gorgeous Lake Austin, this is a coveted location, and Eanes ISD is locally and nationally ranked at the top.

South Austin has its own reputation and it's all good! Any day or night of the week is a good time to head south. With established neighborhoods in Circle C, Shady Hollow, Olympic Heights, Hillcrest, and several emerging communities in between, many are planting themselves in this part of the city, 15 minutes from downtown, 25 minutes from Texas State University in San Marcos, and (most importantly) close to the Salt Lick in Driftwood toward Wimberley and Dripping Springs. Clearly a mixture of the old and new, South Austin's 78748 zip code was recently called the fastest growing zip code in the United States. !!! And even though it's really closer to the State Capitol than it is to Shady Hollow, South Austinites claim SoCo, Austin's South Congress Avenue, where "everything" is (from Guero's Taco Bar, to Lucy's Fried Chicken, and Kendra Scott to Perla's and Homeslice Pizza and SoCo much more) as a part of their "hood." With 100 people moving to Austin every day, South Austin offers a variety of homes for the buyer who wants to be...everywhere.

"There's a freedom you begin to feel the closer you get to Austin, Texas." ~ Willie Nelson

In 1836, Davy Crockett called Texas "the garden spot of the world...the best land and the best prospects for health (he) ever saw." - And there still is "a world of country to settle" right here in Austin. Next week, we'll explore another part of this beautiful and booming city. If Central Texas is calling you, then we want you to call us!

Whether it's a place with a view and a pool, or a neighborhood with a park and nearby schools, we can help you find the perfect home in Austin and the surrounding area. At Derrick Group, we're Texas girls who know the Hill Country. We do our "home work"...and we'd love the opportunity to do yours!
