About Austin vs San Francisco

austin realtorWho are we and why did we decide to write this site? My name is Rebecca Williamson and my husband, Chris, and I were in the same position you are in not too long ago. I was born and raised in Belmont, CA a city in San Mateo County about 20 miles south of San Francisco. After attending college at Georgia Tech in Atlanta, where I met Chris, I was set on moving back to San Francisco. So, we did. And we lived there for about 5 years. But, what we found was the San Francisco Bay Area wasn’t the same as it had been when I left. We started looking for other places to move and found Austin.

austin tx realtorThe decision to move to Austin wasn’t as easy as that one paragraph story. We did a lot of research, narrowed it down to a few cities and finally, after careful consideration, decided to move to Austin. Not knowing Austin, it was a bit difficult to research it online and compare it to what we knew – San Francisco. We decided when we opened up our real estate business in Austin, we’d make it easier for someone relocating.

The amazing thing was when we got to Austin, we realized just how many people from California, and the San Francisco Bay Area in particular, had made our same move. And, we thought, why not give someone an easy way to compare the two cities we know so well – Austin and San Francisco.

The goal of this website is to help you make an informed decision about moving to Austin. We’ll be as honest as we can in sharing our experiences in both cities.
