Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: In 1994 I bought my first historical home in Austin and have enjoyed being a landlord for over ten years. Separately, having used an imperfect diet instead of chemotherapy to reverse my own disabling disease, my other career objective is to use over two decades as a Registered Dietitian to bring the healing power of food to others. As featured speaker for radio and TV, medical professionals, universities and corporations, I have authored a book that sells in twelve countries and is a best seller at Amazon. A documentary of my recovery, “The Incurables”, also airs internationally on Veria TV.

Why the Owner Chose Oakmont Heights, Austin, TX, USA:
Premium real estate at a reasonable price. Very nice glass and tile shower. Private and fenced outdoor garden with quality furniture extends your living space. Lots of storage space. 100% cotton linens throughout. Despite urban location this neighborhood is exceptionally quiet with virtually no night time commercial activity nor gigantic apartment / condo buildings. Tiny space with full sized refrigerator, dishwasher, stove and oven.
