“We have always enjoyed the outdoors and appreciate that the residents of Austin are committed to maintaining a thriving greenbelt and river system. For us, it’s one of the best things about this city. When we are not working, we like to canoe Lady Bird Lake or one of the many Texas rivers, hence our brokerage name Red Canoe Real Estate.” – Kristi Cohen
