"Brykerwoods is community living in the heart of the city. I know all of my neighbors, some of whom have lived here for 30 years. The dog and I jog to Shoal Creek Park in the evening and the best restraunts are just right around the corner."
Passionate long-time residents and sturdy 1930’s single-family homes are what set Bryker Woods apart. Bordered by 35th street on the North and Westover Lane to the south, this historical area, first settled in 1886, stands as another established and sought-after neighborhood in Central Austin. Live on tucked away streets and lush lots with foliage and unpretentious gardens but find amenities, restaurants, and the medical community moments away. Easy access to the University and downtown areas attract UT faculty and staff and career families to the area. Exemplary schools on all levels plus walking distance to several recreational areas make Bryker Woods an ideal neighborhood for outdoor- loving families. Neighbors are politically and locally active and seek to protect development in the neighborhood and maintain the high standards Bryker Woods is known for.

“Johnny (Henion) represented us in the sale of our old home. We were very nervous about the length of time it could take to sell and how to price the house. Johnny was prepared with neighborhood data and recommendations to help get the process rolling. Once an offer arrived, we found ourselves with a very high maintenance buyer. After five rounds of negotiations on the contract, we headed to inspections. When our inspection turned up an issue in the yard, Johnny was there with shovel in hand to help us determine the problem. The option period negotiations again took several rounds, with Johnny provided the voice of reason as we got frustrated. When closing delayed, he was there again with reassurances that the issues would get resolved. Johnny kept a sense of humor, perspective and our end goals in mind throughout the process and everything worked out. We would highly recommend Johnny and his team! We will certain work with Johnny again, if we ever decide to move!” - Stephanie H,
