No one knows neighborhoods like the REALTORS who help put people in them. Meet some of the top REALTORS in Austin as they share their best picks to eat, shop, live and play within their favorite neighborhoods.
Moreland Properties REALTOR® Anna Morrison Lee is a fourth generation Austinite. Anna’s parents still live in the Tarrytown home she grew up in. To her, Tarrytown is a place for families and making memories — some of her favorite were playing at her grandparents’ lakeside estate with her siblings and cousins. Today she and her family enjoy fishing, and waterskiing on the beautiful Lake Austin.
