Austin newcomers, ACL fans and residents can now explore the varied niche neighborhoods in the area from their nearest computer or cell phone screen. The Shannon Schmitz Group at Austin Portfolio Real Estate (a division of KW Luxury Homes International),always on the cutting edge of technology, recently launched “The Austin Street Beat”, a video series that will serve as a living archive of in-depth looks at the many unique area communities. The videos can be found on the group’s website and YouTube page.
With the City of Austin reporting that 115 people move to the city each day, the Texas Capital is one of the fastest growing cities in the nation. A world-class city with a small town feel, Austin prides itself on its diversity. “Every neighborhood in Austin has a different feel,” said Morgan Smith, “and we want to help people find that special nook that resonates with their personalities.”
This is not just a tool meant for out-of-towners, either. “Austinites are often not aware of communities outside of their own neighborhoods,” said Shannon Schmitz “We hope this tool will be useful for current residents thinking of relocating to another part of the city.”
The videos are 2-3 minutes in length, and consist of neighborhood footage, interesting and historical facts about the area and ballpark home prices in today’s market. Their first series covered Travis Heights, Bouldin Creek, Zilker, Spanish Oaks, Lake Pointe, Barton Creek, Barton Hills and Westlake, with several more videos in the works that will explore Allendale, Rosedale, Brentwood, Crestview, Tarrytown, Old Enfield, Pemberton, Northwest Hills, and Lakeway. The Shannon Schmitz Group even takes requests. If you are interested in having them cover a specific neighborhood or area, call Morgan Smith at (512) 466-5224.
