Austin Texas real estate isn’t all about the quirky, however. Austin’s creative status also has to do with the profusion of cultural institutions that are part of daily life. The city is home to professional ballet, opera, and theatre companies – as well as a symphony. You’ll find a score of museums, dozens of art galleries, and a motley but enthusiastic collection of interdisciplinary performance companies.

If you’re looking for a top-notch Texas city to call home, you’re sure to be delighted and surprised by what’s on offer in Austin. Austin got its start as an 1838 trading post on the Colorado River in what was then a Native American buffalo hunting ground. Times have certainly changed since then – and Austin (named after an intrepid colonist) is now home to over half a million residents. The city is also the Texas state capital.

Because Austin is the state capital city, you’ll find historic buildings and cultural institutions that aren’t found elsewhere in the state. The Texas State Capitol building (located, appropriately, in Austin) stands 14 feet taller than the United States Capitol – which only goes to show that things in Texas do simply have to be bigger and better. Visitors and history buffs can troll around the Capitol Visitors Center in a building that was once a land office or wander through the Texas State History Museum.

What really makes Austin Texas real estate stand out, however, is Austin’s reputation as a cultural and creative Mecca. For years, residents have hawked bumper stickers and t-shirts that plead, “Keep Austin Weird” – and this is meant in a very real way. In the book The Rise of the Creative Class, Austin was assigned the highest “creativity index score” in the nation – recognizing the city’s strong population of artists, musicians, writers, dancers, and others of less easily identifiable artistic ilk’s.

Weird? Really? Consider this: every night from March through October, over one and a half million bats fly out from under a downtown bridge. People come to watch and celebrate – every night.

They believe in working hard for their clients, and then re-investing their free time and money into worthy causes such as Big Brothers/Big Sisters and Austin Junior Forum. In the summer of 2007, Jay and Michele collected donations of children's clothing here in Austin, and then personally delivered them to orphanages in El Salvador.
