"TED SMITH SELLS WALKABLE AUSTIN"
I moved to Austin in 1982 as a new Ph.D. teaching at the University of Texas-Austin. Over the next 28 years, I lived in a variety of walkable neighborhoods--from South Congress to Clarksville to Cherrywood. In 2009 I moved to downtown Washington, DC, where I lived a walkable lifestyle, and became a REALTOR. Returning to Austin in 2017, I brought my passion for a walkable lifestyle back to the city that's always been in my heart.
By "walkable neighborhood" I mean a neighborhood with easy walking or biking access to a grocery, a school, retail, and recreational opportunities. Walkable neighborhoods may consist of single-family houses, but may also include mixed-use retail and residential buildings--such as Downtown or the Domain--or may include duplexes or townhouses, as at Mueller or parts of East Austin.
As traffic has thickened in Austin, walkable neighborhoods have become more attractive. More and more people--whether newcomers to Austin, or young couples "moving up" to start their families, or empty nesters--are choosing to move back to walkable neighborhoods to recapture a sense of community and get closer access to resources and amenities that drew them to Austin in the first place.
I would be happy to work with any clients you have who are relocating to Austin. And I promise to take good care of them--after all, I am representing another NAGLREP colleague!
