About Lake Austin

Lake Austin is one of the 6 Highland Lakes chain and is fed by Lake Travis. The entire lake lies inside the city limits of Austin, Texas.

 

Lake Austin, originally named Lake McDonald, was constructed in 1940 at the site of two previous dams that were both destroyed by flooding.

 

It is a relatively small lake, covering 1,830 acres and only reaching 1300 feet at its widest point. The maximum depth is 75 feet.

 

Lake Austin provides limitless potential for recreation and entertainment. From traditional lake activities such as boating, skiing, fishing, and swimming, to multiple bars and restaurants located right on the shore of the lake.

 

In addition there is plenty of natural beauty to be enjoyed, be it camping or hiking, as well as numerous golf courses in the area.

 

While Lake Austin may be on the smaller side compared to other Highland Lakes, it more than makes up for it with so much to do being located in the heart of Austin.

Philosophy

There are many qualities and skills that go into being an excellent real estate professional, integrity, market knowledge, technology, marketing savvy, effective negotiation skills, in-depth community knowledge and a high-quality professional networking, all of which are hallmarks of how I conduct my real estate business.

 

That said, in my experience as the Texas Broker for Lake Homes Realty, I've also found that providing the very best service is essentially about putting my clients first. This means keeping myself accessible, being a good listener as well as a good communicator, and responding quickly to the buyer's or the seller's needs.

 

This "client first" philosophy has always been my approach and it requires me to continually improve my skills and ways of doing business. They've also helped me to extend the range of services I provide to my clients.
