apartment hunting - looking for the leasing life?

Sometimes an apartment search can be daunting. With so many different apartment, condo, and townhouse options out there it is hard to tour them all and find out which one is the best for you. Talk to one of our trusted Locators and use their extensive knowledge of Austin apartments to help you narrow down your search and put an end to the tiring all-weekend apartment touring marathon you and your roommates have dreaded since you put in your last 30 day notice.

Commercial Tenant Representation

Research, market knowledge, up to date development information, and negotiations expertise help us find the best locations for you and your growing business. If you are breaking into the Austin MSA for the first time or expanding to your second or tenth location, we will make sure that your business is in the strongest area and lifestyle center for your success.


Rich in history, there are many options with enormous upside potential for development in Austin. Repurposed buildings can yield incredible results and converting an old space can attract some of the best new bars, restaurants, and music venues to add to Austin's already famous nightlife/music scene.

Real estate investment - Austin is the #1 market

From residential to commercial, we can facilitate every transaction from cash deals in residential real estate to 1031 exchanges for retail or mixed-use acquisition. Our team has over 10 years of real estate investment in the Texas market.

Commercial Landlord representation

With years of experience in landlord representation, you can trust Hinson-Matthews to find the best tenants for your building while also negotiating each individual lease with attention to profit driven and value based strategy.  We understand how to mix tenants into a space while also surveying the market area for the needs of the surrounding population.

To stabilize housing prices, the Austin Strategic Housing Plan says we need to build at least 135,000 new housing units over the next decade so supply more closely meets demand.
