About Laura Hubbard

I moved to Austin in 2012. The previous 30+ years were spent in Houston working as marketing director for such companies as Aetna, Prudential, and Rice University. Professionally, Houston was a wonderful place for me. Personally, Austin has been spectacular. Wish I had gotten here a bit sooner but thrilled to be here now! I think most people who visit Austin for a few days will be drawn to the same alluring, delightful and eclectic people and places that pulled my heartstrings to this crazy town.

Laura Hubbard purchased this studio in 1998

Why Laura Hubbard chose Greater South River City

Home was built in 1936. We purchased it from the original owners and have renovated and restored this very special property in one of Austin's best neighborhoods

Really cute apartment

  • 5 of 5

I loved staying in this apartment. The location is fantastic. It’s very close to south Congress and also very close to the boardwalk on town lake, a fun walk. This place is cozy and private. The owners are very nice. The bed is comfortable and the area is quiet and peaceful.

Owner's Response: We are dog lovers and our guest had the sweetest, cutest pup. Pam, you and your little dog were super guests and are welcomed to stay in our apartment any time you visit Austin. And the next time we'll have a glass of wine by the pool!

Fantastic garage apt with loft!

  • 5 of 5

Clean, well-equipped apartment, with tons of natural light and cute private porch at entry. Quiet! Stayed for a month! Couldn't ask for better owners: kind, attentive, lovely people! Beautiful, safe neighborhood, 15 min walk to Congress (SOCO), 25 min walk to downtown (drive anywhere in 10 minutes or less). Surrounded by parks and trails to burn off the margaritas and tacos Austin is famous for.

Located in one of Austin's oldest, historic neighborhoods, close to downtown. Many large, heritage trees and beautiful homes. Stacy Park is 2 blocks away with Blunn Creek greenbelt, swimming pools, tennis courts, and nature trails. It is a lovely walk through the neighborhood to Congress Avenue for great restaurants, shops. Very close to historic Austin music venues as well as new clubs.
