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.”

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!

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!
