Austin Texas ~ An ActiveRain Meetup

An Austin, Texas Meetup 

Oh what fun it is to go around the country and meet with ActiveRain members. My neice and nephew recently relocated to Austin, Texas for work. When I heard that they were making the move I was sure to talk to Dorie Dillard and had them connect when they arrived this summer. The move was going to a major transition for them, and while I knew that they may wait a bit before buy a home, I wanted them to have a good connection to help them get ready. I spoke with Dorie and she reached out them immediately. 



We all met up for a quick hello just before Dorie jumped on a cruise ship for the holiday. 

When my family decided to get together for the holidays, it was important for me to get in touch with Dorie for a meetup. All I had to do was mention this to my neice Emma, and she was texting Dorie to set up a time. I'm so glad that we were all able to connect so close to the holidays, but we had a nice meetup at Dorie's office. I'm convinced that my family will be in good hands when they make the decision to go forward with buying a home.

Dorie has already been available to them and gave them information about the neighborhoods available and so much more info about Austin early on when they arrived. My neice and nephew won't be buying a home until spring, but they feel so comfortable that there is that AR Family connection. 


I spent the week with my family in their lovely apartment and toured a few neighborhoods to see what homes are like compared to what I sell in New York. 

Austin is a really cool place and we toured almost every little corner we could find. It was unanimous that we would try to help keep Austin Weird though. Who would want to change that? 

Thanks for the Champagne Dorie!! 

Celebrating Austin TX 

Anyone looking to relocate to Austin, Texas would be wise to contact Dorie. She knows so much about the area and how to make a newbie feel welcomed. I can relax that my family is in good hands when they start the process of buying a home this spring. I'll be back to visit again when they are ready to  move in to their new home.


Thanks Dorie for such a warm welcome! On our next trip back it will be after Emma and Chris find their next home. 2017 will be a good year both in Austin and New York.

Come on, Janis Borgueta, how much did Dorie Dillard pay you for that glowing endorsement? I bet the only time you will see your niece and nephew will be when you go to Austin to visit them. Dorie makes Austin sound like an oasis in a desert of tumbleweeds!
