Austin, TX (PRWEB) June 14, 2014
As the Indian population around the Austin area grows, attracting people from all over with a high quality of life, prestigious technology jobs, and a strong educational environment, the necessity of providing people with more detailed information about areas of town, and services and amenities has arisen. Realtor Vik Vad, of Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate, has launched a website, VikVad.com, to better assist newcomers in familiarizing themselves with the area, as well as those living in the area to find new and interesting shops, restaurants, things to do, and real estate options.
A native Austinite, Vad has watched the area grow tremendously since he attended elementary school in the Round Rock School District 30 years ago, and the Indian community spread its wings in particular. "At first it was just a small community," he states, "but now, we have so many wonderful sub-communities – Marathi, Gujarati, Bengali, Punjabi, Tamil – really every part of India and the whole subcontinent is represented." Vad is a second generation Indian American, and understands the Indian community's specific needs – from desiring good schools for their children, to wanting a home that's a value for the money, or selling for the best possible price, he assists clients through every step of the process, and is easy to talk and relate to.
"Some of my clients only want a home that faces east or north, or has other suitable vaastu characteristics," mentions Vik Vad. "I even have a smartphone app that can help them with this. Other customers love to entertain and have guests, so we look for great spaces and possibilities for that." It is the desire for specifics, as well as his experience and 11+ years in the real estate brokerage business that his clients appeciate. "Don't hesitate to ask me anything – the location of the nearest temple, referrals for other professionals, or even whether or not I am married!," Vad laughs.
