Find What You’re Looking For In New Braunfels
Pam Powell, a proud multi-generational Texan and Sotheby’s real estate agent, has an outspoken love affair with Texas Hill Country. She’s been profiled a couple of times by Culture Map San Antonio, and both times she spoke to the beauty and quality of life afforded in New Braunfels.
"Swimming holes, fishing holes, and rivers and lakes abound. Whether folks are jumping off the rope swing at a blue hole or floating the river, a great day ends with mouth-watering barbecue, Shiner beer, and wurst,” she told Culture Map.
She would know, too. She’s been a resident since 2002 and has spent the last 18 years selling real estate in the area. Powell notes that the area’s community feel, proximity to shopping, highway access, big lots (some more than an acre), and closeness to water recreation make it one of the best places to buy property.
It also happens to be one of the prettiest places in Texas. Just a short drive is all it takes to reveal some of the best views of Texas Hill Country, including the many rolling fields of wildflowers that central Texas is known for.

As for affordability, Zillow deems New Braunfels a buyer’s market with a median home value of $275,551. That number is expected to drop another 2.4 percent over the next year, meaning it might be time to start thinking about scooping up that Hill Country property you’ve been dreaming about.
Summed up in three words, Powell describes the area as “fun, family, and freedom”. And we’d have to agree. Whether you’re building a custom home on a few acres or just getting closer to the water, New Braunfels offers an escape like nowhere else in Texas.
