Highland Hills is a fantastic neighborhood located just west of Mopac and between 2222 & Far West in MLS Area 1A. Highland Hills location in Austin couldn't get any better - a 5 minute drive to Lake Austin, 15 minutes to Lake Travis, 5 minutes to downtown, and 5 minutes to the Arboretum. The neighborhood itself is very hilly & full of trees, and the streets curve throughout the neighborhood. Many of the homes have fantastic views of nearby Cat Mountain & the hill country topography. At night, families of deer share Highland Hills as home.
Highland Hills real estate is primarily single-family residences, but there are also quite a few duplexes scattered throughout. Due to the property values increase, many of the duplexes are undergoing condo conversions & are being sold as attached single-family homes. Highland Hills was built in the 50's, 60's, & 70's, with a very small number of newer construction homes built on remaining lots in the 90's. The lot sizes are large, even for their time, and the homes are quite large for the time period they were built. Because of the age of the homes, and their increasing property values, there have been many fantastic remodels completed.

I have to admit that when I first reached out through Yelp to set up a meeting with Eric I was a little skeptical. I was reading reviews of his service like you are right now, and as Eric knows well from our time working together, I'm a person who likes to research and organize just about everything. The fact that I couldn't find even a couple of negative reviews among the hundreds of reviews Eric has across Zillow and Yelp seemed to me to be too good to be true. Fast forward six weeks and one successful closing later, I'm very pleased to report that the service I got was exactly the service I read about if not better. Eric and Bailey Bowden who's Eric's right hand couldn't have been better to work with. This was my first time buying a home, so I had a lot of probably very stupid questions. Despite this, they cheerfully and promptly answered them...
Meredith Alderson is AMAZING! We have worked with many realtors, and Meredith is one of the best. She was very respectful of our budget and what we were looking for in a house. She quickly figured out the key items we wanted and helped us narrow down our search. We were relocating from Arizona and had our two young children with us - she was great at being attentive to their needs and also letting them join in with their opinion. She made house hunting (and buying) a fun experience - with minimal stress! You cannot go wrong with Meredith as your realtor!
Eric Bramlett is an incredible realtor. When my wife and I were looking for a realtor to help us relocate from California to Austin, Texas, we were impressed by the quantity and quality of the online reviews for Eric... and let me tell you, they were not incorrect. Eric is very knowledgeable of the entire Austin area, but he was also very accommodating of our timeline and our need to work feverishly to find a home quickly (as it's not easy to go back and forth from CA to Austin multiple homes).
I cannot say enough fantastic things about working with Tara McGuire at Bramlett Residential. When I reached out to Bramlett via the online contact tool, I had already spoken with several realtors in the Austin area. My inquiries were met with lackluster responses, likely because my husband and I didn't plan to purchase for several months. But when I contacted Bramlett Residential at 10pm on a weeknight, Tara called me first thing the next morning. She encouraged us to visit Austin soon, since we are relocating from Dallas, to get an idea of the neighborhoods and market. During this exploratory trip, we felt no pressure to buy ahead of our schedule. She gave us a great overview of central Austin neighborhoods and helped us narrow down the best areas for us.
