If you are looking to stay in touch with nature and still be in the pulse of the city Barton Hills is where you want to live in Austin! Beautiful rolling hills that border the Barton Creek Green Belt, Zilker Park, Rabb RD all the way South to Barton Skyway and Lamar.
Barton Hills appeals to all types of people from the tech start-up professionals, active young familes, retirees to the classic "Keep it Weird Austinites".
Dick Kallerman said it best in HISTORY OF BARTON HILLS, "I was surprised to find that there was nary a house between Rabb Road and the Creek, except for an enclave of a dozen or so very special houses built by A.D. Stenger in the “Contemporary” style. This style, popular for a while after the war and owing a lot to Frank Lloyd Wright’s “Prairie style,” is characterized by gently sloping, sheltering roofs, clerestory windows, and a merging of indoors and out with decks that extend into the treetops. Strolling today along Rundell and Airole Way, you realize that homes here in Barton Hills are some of Austin’s architectural wonders.
Barton Hills real estate is very coveted so be prepared to invest. The market right now has sold prices from the 500's to 1.3 million over this summer of 2015.
Barton Hills offers easy access to the Greenbelt, Zilker Park and fast and easy commutes to downtown and SOCO. Beautiful surroundings and fantastic homes you can't beat the location of Barton Hills neighborhood in Austin.

"Tobi was a pleasure to work with for many different reasons.
I trust her instincts - and by that I mean - she was able to read who we are and what we are drawn to which made all the difference in terms of showing us neighborhoods and homes. We felt understood and heard.
She stayed close in our search – constantly sending over worthy candidates, but also gave us our space, meaning she never even remotely pushed anything on us, just let us explore our way through each home, letting it speak for itself. That was particularly important to us and she seemed to know it on her own.
We appreciated her thoroughness during a process that can be overwhelming…she is extremely detail oriented and on top of the process. We felt confident in her care! And we thank her for finding our new favorite part of town!
We also benefited from working with her husband, Steve to secure a loan. Their partnership further solidified our confidence throughout the process that we'd find the right place and have a great shot at getting the home we want in one of the hottest markets in the country.
Thank you, Tobi and Steve!"
