Realty Austin Announces Sponsorship for Annual Austin Institute of Architecture Home Tour 2012 to be Held October 6-7, 2012

AUSTIN, TX–September 4, 2012–Press Coverage

Realty Austin is pleased to announce that it will be the exclusive Realtor Underwriting Sponsor for the Austin Institute of Architecture’s 2012 Home Tour. On October 6-7, AIA returns with its one-of-a-kind event that grosses over 5,000 visitors each year.

This is the first year Realty Austin has supported the tour as a sponsor. Co-owners Jonathan and Yvette Boatwright believe in the annual event which is well known as a high profile home tour that delivers one-on-one access to architects, homebuilders and contractors.

“Since 1987 AIA Austin’s Home Tour has supported Austin’s notoriety as the mecca for trendsetting home designers. We are excited about the opportunity to partner with one of Austin’s top tier events that draws visitors from all over to see Austin’s enormous talent,” said Boatwright.

Both traditional and contemporary designs coexist on the tour of the 13 homes that were selected based on their general design excellence. The uniqueness of the project, innovation in design, diversity among designs, quality of construction, and location were evaluated during the selection process. The tour represents the wide range of neighborhood character available in Austin and features renovations, remodels and new construction.

Sally Fly, AIA’s Executive Director said, “We are very pleased Realty Austin has chosen AIA as the recipient of their generosity. Realty Austin’s initiatives align with ours, and hope the partnership will be long-lasting into future home tours.”

Homes participating in the tour are open from 10:00AM to 6:00PM on Saturday and Sunday. Tickets go on sale September 1, 2012 and are $30 in advance, $35 the weekend of the event. AIA Austin’s Home Tour has sold out the past two years. Attendees are encouraged to purchase their tickets in advance. Tickets may be purchased at Zinger Hardware Treehouse (Austin location), Realty Austin (Lake Travis location) or directly from AIA Austin.

Realty Austin – Lake Travis address is 2418 RR 620 South, Suite 200, Lakeway, Texas 78738.
