Austin is the state capital of Texas, an inland city bordering the Hill Country region. Home to the University of Texas flagship campus, Austin is known for its eclectic live-music scene centered around country, blues and rock. Its many parks and lakes are popular for hiking, biking, swimming and boating. South of the city, Formula One's Circuit of the Americas raceway has hosted the United States Grand Prix.
Residents of Austin are known as Austinites. They include a diverse mix of government employees, college students, musicians, high-tech workers, digital marketers, and blue-collar workers. The city's official slogan promotes Austin as "The Live Music Capital of the World", a reference to the city's many musicians and live music venues, as well as the long-running PBS TV concert series Austin City Limits. The city also adopted "Silicon Hills" as a nickname in the 1990s due to a rapid influx of technology and development companies. In recent years, some Austinites have adopted the unofficial slogan "Keep Austin Weird", which refers to the desire to protect small, unique, and local businesses from being overrun by large corporations. Since the late 19th century, Austin has also been known as the "City of the Violet Crown", because of the colorful glow of light across the hills just after sunset.
In 1987, Austin originated and remains the site for South by Southwest (stylized as SXSW and colloquially referred to as South By), an annual conglomeration of parallel film, interactive media, and music festivals and conferences that take place in mid-March. Emerging from a strong economic focus on government and education, since the 1990s, Austin has become a center for technology and business. A number of Fortune 500 companies have headquarters or regional offices in Austin, including 3M, Advanced Micro Devices (AMD).
Agustin’s biggest gift to himself is the gratification of putting families into new homes and helping sellers grow their real estate portfolio. After over 30 years of real estate and mortgage experience, he says that’s all that matters. “I’ve made the big sale, worked the mortgages and conquered the market.” That’s why clients keep coming back for their next big move; a large part of his service is to repeat customers.
His residential and commercial territory spans the breadth of Texas with concentration Austin and Central Texas, where he lives with his wife of almost 40 years. One of 13 siblings, Agustin cherishes families – young and old – and helping them make a house their home. He has found and shown … and shown again … thousands of properties, and sold hundreds. “Las familias son mi mercado, mi responsabilidad y el centro de mi carrera.”
And if you ever find yourself stuck in Texas somewhere, call Agustin; he likely knows somebody there … being from a big family and all.
“One client bought his new home near the end of the year. The company handling the transaction closed before we could get the keys. I reached them at home, crisscrossed central Texas and with some wrangling, he got his keys on Christmas Eve. One of my best holidays ever!”
