Pokey Delwaide, a local real estate professional from ERA Colonial Real Estate, speaks about Sun City in glowing terms.
“Texans are known to be friendly,” she states, “and never is that more true than at Sun City Texas, where people from every state in the union have made this outstanding community their home, and are welcoming others to become Texans! Hill Country beauty awaits you at this fabulous active adult resort, where lazy live oak trees and colorful bluebonnets are the harbingers of spring. Neighbors meeting for pickleball, pack riding across the community on bikes or making lunch plans for a trendy new restaurant are daily occurrences. World travelers reside here, and yet I cannot think of a soul who isn’t proud and happy to re-enter the community, whether it was from a trip around the world, or just to the grocery store.”
Just a 40-minute drive away, Austin offers numerous attractions, fine dining, and a large variety of music venues for all tastes. Active adults who want the thrill of big city life in a neighborhood that's warm in more ways than one should consider Sun City Texas in Georgetown.
