The Allandale vibe

Think of Allandale as the best of both worlds: You can enjoy quiet, tree-lined streets and a true sense of community. But quick access to major roads also eases your commute almost anywhere in greater Austin. While Allandale is a well-established neighborhood, buzzy restaurants and other hip, new businesses feel right at home, too.

the roots of Allandale

Like Crestview, Allandale is an Austin neighborhood that first started to flower in the mid-20th century. One of its central roads, Bullard Drive, is named after the Realtor who played a key role in developing the area.

Allandale real estate

Allandale homes are usually around 1,700 to 3,000 and sit on big lots.

Eat and Drink in the
Allandale Area

Our favorite stops for caffeine, conversation or telecommuting: Monkey Nest, Thunderbird and Pacha Organic Cafe.

One of our favorite neighborhood spots in Allandale is Epicerie. You’ll find us on the patio for both lunch and dinner (and those beignets!). You can even grab some gourmet groceries to go. The acclaimed restaurant Barley Swine also recently moved to the area, or you can opt for more casual choices like the Peached Tortilla and Chi’lantro. Bringing the kids? Hit Phil’s Ice House for burgers.

Get
Outside

Allandale residents get active at Beverly Sheffield Northwest District Park, a huge park that boasts amenities including pools and tennis courts. They can also explore the Shoal Creek Greenbelt.

Neighborhood
Landmarks

The Frisco Shop opened in 1953 and was one of the first Austin restaurants to integrate.

Built in the 1940s, the shopping center Allandale Village on Burnet Road is still a hub of the area today.

Fonda San Miguel has been a favorite special occasion spot for Austinites since 1975, because of both its interior Mexican food and its colorful design.

Where We Find
‘Our Austin’

With only a handful of tables, La Cocina de Consuelo is the real deal when it comes to Mexican food. Lisa says it’s the next best thing to eating at her grandma’s house.

Exceptional

Lisa was exceptional to work with. She was professional with me from start to finish and I really liked her approach on assessing my needs.

I will recommend Lisa to my friends and colleagues not only because of her professional and experience, but because of her great understanding of the Austin market. Lisa's team exemplified these qualities as well and made my life very during my search and final transaction. Kudos to Lisa, Helen, Colby and Jenna!

July 2016

Jenna, Helen and the rest of the team were great throughout every step of the process. I always felt like they were fighting for me even when things got hectic towards the end and it was so refreshing that I could ask them any question (big or small) and they were extremely prompt in their response. Couldn't have asked to work with a better team!

April 2016

Lisa Munoz and her whole team are absolutely wonderful! I worked with Jenna Gilbert and Lisa, and they both were amazing. It is very apparent that it is not just about making a one time sale with them. I had heard prior to working with them that it is evident they care about their clients. I can certainly vouch for this after working with them. I think this is quite rare to find, and definitely a different feeling. Even after closing on the house, they are very involved in assisting me with problems that have come up. I would recommend them to anyone looking to buy or sell a house, and will certainly plan to use them again in the future!
