Posted on Thursday, August 29th, 2013 at 2:01pm.

We're excited to announce the release of the Universal Search tool on As a company, we've always made it a priority to offer the easiest to use search tools for finding Austin homes for sale and this new tool continues in that tradition. The Universal Search tool allows you to search all properties for sale using any available search criteria, such as City, Area, Neighborhood, School, Address, Zip, Keyword, MLS Area and MLS# all in one convenient search box. Think of it as the Google of Austin Real Estate. Take this search of "Round Rock" for example. When you begin typing your search phrase "Round Rock," the drop-down menu opens up to display all available Round Rock related searches in one list:

This tool has been tailored to assist anyone looking for Austin real estate. Whether you're new to the city or a longtime Austinite, a first-time homebuyer or a real estate veteran, our Universal Search has something for you. For example, those who are new to Austin may be looking to familiarize themselves with a general area/neighborhood/or suburb of the city. In this case, the drop-down menu titled "Cities/Areas" would be of great assistance. Those more familiar with Austin and it's different neighborhoods may already have a certain street in mind, in which case the "Street Name" search would be more appropriate. If you're driving around looking at homes and you spot a 'For Sale' sign in a yard, the Universal Search can assist you here as well. Simply begin typing in the street name (or even the exact address) and both of these options will appear in the drop-down menu. Parents with a specific school district or campus in mind can type in those names, which will then load searches that only display homes zoned to that particular district or school.

The new search tool can be found by clicking the word "Search" on the main menu or it's also available in the "Quick Search" box located on the homepage and on other neighborhood description pages.

This powerful tool is unlike anything else available today and we're excited to see how it will improve our clients' experiences as they use it to search for Austin homes. So what are you waiting for? Click here to try out the new Universal Search from Reilly Realtors!
