Austin is 225 miles from the Mexican border. San Antonio, Houston and Dallas are all within 200 miles of Austin

Austin, in Travis County, is a city with heart and soul. It brims with both southern tradition and quirky eccentricity. The area is politically charged and culturally rich. A high-tech, big city meets a low-key, college town.

A city far from ordinary, it’s the kind of place where you check your worries at the city limits sign, trade in business suits for something a bit more casual and prepare for experiences you’ll find only in Austin.

Everyone at Urban to Suburban Realty are ready to help you buy, sell, or lease in Travis County.
