“We hope this magazine opens up a dialogue between our group and those considering a move to Austin,” said Shannon T. Schmitz.

The city of Austin reports that an average of 158 people move into the city each day, making the Texas capital one of the fastest growing cities in the nation. The Shannon Schmitz Group, at Austin Portfolio Real Estate, would like to personally welcome each new potential resident with a copy of LOCALE Austin, an insider’s guide to the city.

The Shannon Schmitz Group’s new quarterly publication, LOCALE Austin, explores lifestyle trends in Austin, Texas, covering everything from local music, entrepreneurial tips and non-profit organizations to local events throughout the year. Also included are several samples of homes that are currently on the market.

As a world-class city with a small town feel, Austin prides itself on its diversity. LOCALE Austin strives to make that point. The Winter 2013 issue is 27 pages in length and showcases in-depth feature stories about local celebrities.

Since she was a tween, Ruby Jane Smith has graced the stage with greats such as Willie Nelson, Ray Benson of Asleep at the Wheel, John Popper of Blues Traveler fame and Dale Watson. In this issue, Smith talks about her new video release and dishes about her favorite local hangouts. Also included is an exclusive interview from Jeremiah Newton, whose company, The Bearded Bastard, was recently named one of the most innovative businesses in Austin and one of the coolest new businesses in America by Business Insider. Newton discusses some of the unique opportunities Austin offers young entrepreneurs.

“We hope this magazine opens up a dialogue between our group and those considering a move to Austin,” said Shannon T. Schmitz. “In fact, we’ve given an open invitation for anyone planning a trip to Austin to give us a call. There’s nothing more rewarding than helping people find that Austin niche neighborhood that fits them best.”
