The Tarrytown vibe

Explore this prestigious Austin neighborhood and you’ll find quiet, meticulously maintained streets, mature landscaping and old shade trees. You might not guess you’re so close to downtown Austin. Residents take full advantage of Lake Austin and are proud of the many longtime landmarks that add character.

the roots of Tarrytown

Tarrytown was platted in 1934. Lake Austin, the neighborhood’s best-known feature, was created in 1939 by the construction of Tom Miller Dam.

Tarrytown real estate

Sizes in Tarrytown vary widely: 2-7 bedrooms, 1-8 baths and 950-10,000+ square feet. But architectural distinction is a common thread. There is much new construction here, given the proximity to town, the lake and the generous lot sizes.

Eat and Drink in the
Tarrytown Area

Fabi + Rosi brings seasonal, modern European dining to the neighborhood.
Juiceland is a hidden spot for a great smoothie or juice.
Grab an espresso at Caffe Medici in neighboring Clarksville.

Also near the neighborhood, you’ll find perfectly crafted cocktails and yummy bites at Jeffrey’s and Josephine House. They’re part of the same restaurant family, but deliver two totally different
experiences.

Get
Outside

Outdoor living defines this area. Joggers and cyclists have special lanes along Exposition Boulevard. We also love the trails — and the peacocks! — of Mayfield Park.

Reed Park has a pool, creek and nature trail. And Walsh Boat Landing gives you access to beautiful Lake Austin.

Neighborhood
Landmarks

Take a drive by Granger House, a midcentury modern architectural gem.

Howson Branch, Austin Public Library has been a community mainstay since it opened in 1960.

Austinites rallied to save Lions Municipal Golf Course, a neighborhood favorite since 1934.

Mozart’s Coffee Roasters is more about the setting than the coffee, but there are some food and drink options if you’re looking to take in the view. Mozart’s holiday light show is one of Austin’s favorite traditions.

Where We Find
‘Our Austin’

Many Austinites have celebrated weddings at Laguna Gloria. Today it’s one of the locations of the Contemporary Austin museum. You’ll be inspired by both the art and the beautiful grounds.

what our clients say:

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.

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!

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!

February 2021

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.

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.
