If you are looking for affordable real estate on the south side of the Lake Travis area, Apache Shores may be the answer. Located in the Colorado River basin, the Apache Shores community sits off Highway 620 just west of Austin between Lakeway and Mansfield Dam. With its convenient location, residents can easily enjoy all of the sites and sounds of the city while also enjoying a number recreational activities and taking in the natural beauty of Lake Travis.
Apache Shores gets its unique name from the fact that it was once inhabited by Native Americans. More recently, however, the land was part of a 13,000 acre ranch that was owned by a man named Jack Josey. After this land changed hand and it started to become more developed, however, mobile homes dominated the landscape. Today, a few mobile homes can still be found in the area, but Apache Shores now contains numerous waterfront homes along Lake Austin as well as magnificent homes perched on top of cliffs. The area also features a great deal of newer construction to select from.
Children living in Apache Shores attend school at Lake Travis Elementary and Hudson Bend Middle School. Both of these schools are part of the Lake Travis Independent School District, which is well regarded as one of the better school districts in the state. The affordable prices of the homes, the beautiful views and the great schools are just a few of the reasons why many people choose to purchase real estate in Apache Shores.

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.
