The Crestview vibe

Close to the University of Texas campus, Crestview draws UT professors and students. There’s a relaxed, “Classic Austin” kind of attitude and abundance of mid-20th century charm.

the roots of Crestview

This well-established neighborhood was developed after World War II on the site of an old dairy farm.

Crestview real estate

Built in the mid-20th century, they have 2-3 bedrooms and 1-2 baths. Average square footage ranges from 700 to 1,500, but with new construction and expansions on the rise, larger homes are becoming more common.

Eat and Drink in the
Crestview Area

Our favorite stops for caffeine, conversation or telecommuting: Genuine Joe Coffeehouse, Epoch Coffee, and Monkey Nest Coffee.

Tacodeli is always buzzing — and it’s because they have the best taco menu around with the highest-quality ingredients. They close at 3, so hurry up! Lisa’s picks: the Akaushi Picadillo taco and Espinaca salad for lunch; the Jess Special or Otto tacos for breakfast.

Crestview is also the place to try other classic Austin spots like Little Deli and Pizzeria and El Nuevo Mexico.

Get
Outside

Crestview residents can take advantage of Brentwood Park’s pool, picnic shelters and sports courts. This is a great neighborhood park — and just a short walk from Little Deli!

Neighborhood
Landmarks

Crestview Shopping Center along Woodrow Avenue is home to businesses including a neighborhood pharmacy and barbershop, not to mention this mosaic celebrating the area’s retro-flavored appeal. The original Threadgill’s on North Lamar Boulevard is where Janis Joplin got her start.

You might remember Top Notch Hamburgers from the movie “Dazed and Confused.”

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!

Lisa and her team were there to support us the whole time.

Lisa rocks! Lisa's team rocks! We have been clients of Lisa's since 2005. We have referred our friends and family to her as well. This year was a challenging time to purchase a home, especially for investment. We have been looking since January and had put up a total of 3 offers before finally successfully getting a contract. Lisa and her team were there to support us the whole time. It was an extended engagement. There were times when we were more active, and there were times when we slowed down some, wondering if this was all in vain. A couple of the homes we bid on we had located, but Lisa's vigilant eye and a good understanding of what our limits and needs were led us to one we now own. She helped us modify our strategy in September, and that approach proved to be successful. I couldn't think of a better realtor (and I know a few). I always am the first to recommend Lisa to anyone, friend, family, or other who is looking to purchase a home.

We feel so fortunate to have been referred to Lisa Muñoz by a friend of ours. Lisa and her team, Helen, Colby, and Alicia, are truly the BEST! Lisa was there for us every step of the way, and we really appreciate all the help she has given us. Lisa completely exceeded our expectations of an agent, and we always felt so comfortable and well taken care of. Lisa helped us make our dream of becoming homeowners a reality here in Austin. We really cannot thank her enough for everything she has done for us! We are very excited to be moving into the house next week. We will be referring Lisa to EVERYONE we know as she is the best!

November 2021

I’ve just completed my 3rd real estate transaction with Lisa Munoz and her amazing team at Realty Austin-Central.  My 3rd transaction was as wonderful as the 1st and 2nd, and these have occurred over a 16 year period of time, both buying and selling. One of the many things I find amazing over these years is the consistency of Lisa’s team. Not just the fact that some of the same, critical people have been a part of her team for so long, but also the consistent quality of execution each member of the team provides. To say they go above and beyond doesn’t seem adequate. They supported me at such a high level of customer service that I never felt like “just a customer” or one of X-number of deals they are handling. You truly have a team there for you, helping you navigate and make great decisions at every step. Additionally, this team listens! That, coupled with their deep knowledge of the Austin market, gave me the confidence to know I was making well-informed decisions aligned with my goals. You will not go wrong by choosing Team Munoz, so go for it!

A Powerhouse

Lisa is so much more than a real estate agent. She is a powerhouse of useful information. She's an ongoing friend and advisor, she's a network that leads to new friends, and superior service companies. And finally, she's an expert, whose intelligence, focus, calm, and courage create success for those lucky enough to work with her.

Wow Wow Wow!

Wow wow wow! We cannot say enough great things about Lisa! We started looking for a new home back in December of 2020 and watched home prices skyrocket. To make matters worse, we were house shopping remotely due to childcare responsibilities and fear of traveling to Austin during the pandemic before vaccines were available. At that time, we were with a different realtor that wasn’t a good fit for us. We put in a few offers and lost out on everyone. We were anxious, scared, and hopeless, so we decided to switch gears, which led us to Lisa. She took us under her wing and provided us firm guidance, confidence, and support. Lisa really took the time to understand our wishes. It felt good to be challenged when we brought up a house that she knew wasn’t right for us, and it gave us a lot more confidence when we found the right house. When that day came, Lisa and her team sprung into action, and we ended up getting our dream home with the first offer Lisa’s team helped us with! We loved Lisa and her whole team! We are so so so grateful for every one of them!

I chose Lisa Muñoz due to her frankness and no-nonsense attitude in our initial telephone conversation, and I'm very pleased I did. She and her team expertly guided this first-time homebuyer through the insanity of the pandemic-era Austin real estate market and got me into the condo in NW Austin I was looking for much more quickly than I had hoped for. I particularly want to praise Latoya Fladger for her quick responses to my requests and Helen Gregg for getting me through the closing without losing my mind. These are experienced professionals who have seen it all, and I absolutely recommend them to any first-time buyers.
