July Newsletter~Austin/Lake Travis/Highland Lakes
Ah, the lazy days of summer......And, the Central Texas Hill Country is a great place to spend them!  
Lake LBJ at sunrise beach sunset Summer fun is here and there is no better place than on our Highland Lakes.  The 7 lakes in the chain span from Lake Buchanan down to Lady Bird Johnson Lake with Inks Lake, Lake LBJ, Lake Marble Falls, Lake Travis and Lake Austin in between.  If you enjoy boating, jet skiing, fishing, swimming, wakeboarding, waterskiing or just lazing in a hammock and enjoying the breeze with a tall, cool glass of iced tea, there is a lot to love about our area.  
Each lake has it's own character and beauty and it's fun to visit them all.  Or visit some of the nearby attractions that each lake has to offer.  On Lake Travis, check out the Oasis for a sunset cocktail, a lunch date or stroll through the shops.   Lake Austin has the hike and bike trail, a super way to spend an morning or an evening.  People watching is part of the fun!   
Remember, that if we can help you with any of your real estate needs, whether buying or selling, give us a call.  Referrals are one of the greatest compliments we can receive and we'd love to assist your friends, family or colleagues and offer them care, service and attention while they buy or sell their home or other property.  In areas outside of the Central Texas Hill Country, we have an awesome network and can refer them to a professional agent just about anywhere on the globe!
