Mark Strüb has happily called Austin home for 10 whole years. While that doesn’t make him a native, he feels it gives him sufficient rights to the popular Austinite catch-phrase “I remember when…” In addition to talking about the unpaved used car lot that gave way to Whole Foods' World Headquarters, he enjoys Alamo Drafthouse, dining outdoors, shopping and traveling. But nothing brings Mark greater joy than spending quality time with his 5 year old son, Jack, at their home in Hyde Park. Mark has a B.S. in Radio-TV-Film from UT and makes his living helping people buy and sell homes.

Get In Where You Fit In

As a REALTOR, I'm in the business of helping people make good decisions. One of the most important decisions you can possibly make in a home purchase is all about LOCATION.

I often tell my clients (or anyone that will listen), you can change EVERYTHING about a home except its location. It's really important to me to help people get that part right.

A lot goes into that part of the decision. But it mostly boils down to lifestyle. What do you value? What do you like to do? Where do you hang out? How important are schools to you right now or in the next few years? The list goes on...

I think I'm pretty good at listening to people and gathering the right kind of info about them to help guide them to the right hood. But don't take my word for it. Check out my facebook quiz designed to help people know where to begin when searching all of Austin's available homes for sale. I'd love to hear your feedback. Did the shoe fit?
