Austin, Texas, has many neighborhoods & communities, but none are quite like Milwood. Milwood has been carefully developed and planned in order to provide a high quality living, natural beauty, and the height of modern convenience.
Here, manicured lawns, beautiful homes, clean sidewalks, plenty of green trees, and tons of amenities are part of everyday life. As a result, people who move here tend to stay here. Although there are some homes for sale, and a few for lease, this is a highly desirable neighborhood and one that house hunters like to keep an eye on.
Milwood offers easy access to the rest of Austin, Texas. At the same time, this gorgeous neighborhood almost seems to be a far more remote, almost rural place. Plenty of green spaces and gorgeous properties are all part and parcel of living here. No wonder that so many house hunters look at Milwood first.
Surrounded by Parmer Lane to the north, Duval to the South, and East Amherst and the Railroad tracks to the West, Milwood is just a stone's throw from RM 620, Loop 1, and Interstate 35. This means that Milwood homeowners never have to worry about a lengthy commute or inconvenient location. All the desirable shopping, dining, employment, and opportunities of Austin are just a short drive away.
Many homeowners, and especially first-time homebuyers, adore Milwood. It's no wonder. This community, made up mostly of modern one-story houses on small, perfectly maintained grassy lots, is moderately priced in most market conditions. Homes are well maintained and many are in move-in condition. Modestly sized homes offer plenty of room to move in without a huge price tag. Plus, the neighborhood has plenty of mature trees in the area, creating an area perfect for nighttime strolls and relaxation. The community seems far more luxurious than the home price tags suggest, and that simply means value for home buyers.
The nearby Balcones Park and Pool is perfect for local residents who want to take a quick swim, relax with a book, have a picnic, or enjoy game of Frisbee. The Milwood Branch Austin Public Library is also always busy here, as homeowners of all ages drop by to read a book, chat with neighbors, or enjoy Internet access.
The active Milwood Neighborhood Association is a great way for new neighbors to get involved in the stable community. A number of committees -- such as web site, beautification, crime and safety, newsletter, membership and social, and zoning information committees -- are a great way to get involved with the neighborhood association and a great way to have a real hand in the development of the community. Any homeowner who pays the annual fees can be part of the neighborhood association.

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.
