THE HISTORY OF CANYON CREEK


In the late 1980's the Blanton Company started development of the NW Austin community called Canyon Creek (in zip code 78726) located off Hwy 620 about halfway between Hwy 2222 and Anderson Mill Rd.  This area had been a hunting and ranch area but Perry Blanton envisioned a master planned community with parks and hiking, nature and bike trails.

 

The neighborhood expanded rapidly during the 1990's because of its proximity to Lake Travis, Lake Austin, major roads and highways, employers, shopping and its falling into the acclaimed Round Rock ISD school boundaries.  With the continued expansion into the 2000's a few sections of Canyon Creek found itself crossing into the highly respected Leander ISD boundaries.

 

By 2005 Canyon Creek was built out with approximately 1300 homes.  In 2011 David Weekley started construction of 53 homes in a gated community.  Boulder Lane is a loop and crosses Hwy 620 in two spots.  It winds its way through the picturesque, upper middle class neighborhood of single family homes ranging from $200,000 to $550,000.

 

A good deal of the neighborhood is surrounded by the Balcones Canyonland Preserve.  The Canyon Creek Elementary School was constructed in the late 1990's and was elevated to  exemplary status in its first year.  There are two parks located within Canyon Creek ~ Trailhead Park and Canyon Creek Park.

Ownership of Trailhead Park was transferred to the City of Austin upon dissolution of the Northwest Austin Municipal Utility District #1 in February, 2010.

The City Council of Austin has Canyon Creek listed on its website as one of Austin's "Green" neighborhoods as the result of Canyon Creek participating in the "Green Challenge" in 2009.

The evolution of Canyon Creek into a premiere Northwest Austin community has been accomplished because of its strong neighborhood involvement.  

If you're thinking of moving to NW Austin, Canyon Creek should be at the top of your list!  I live, work and play in Canyon Creek and would be happy to get you acquainted with the community.  

If you're thinking of selling, I have systems in place and a strong reputation for marketing properties that sell. Whether buying or selling, I'd be honored to schedule an appointment with you.

 

If you're looking for a community where neighbors are friends, streets are safe and the nights are quiet...you have found home!

Hi Dorie, Thank you so much for the very competent representation of our interests in the sale of our home. The depth of your experience was really apparent from the start and throughout the process. Your extensive list of contacts relating to prepping our home for sale was really quite useful. We are extremely pleased with the results you helped us to obtain so please don't hesitate to call on us for referrals to other potential home sellers or buyers.

I would like to share my experience with working with Dorie Dillard to sell our house in Austin recently. Dorie is the consummate professional. She is very detail oriented as she provided us with extensive analysis of the current market situation, both in our direct neighborhood as well as the extended area. This analysis included both houses on the market, homes sold, and price per sq ft, further categorized by the amount of remodeling done. She personally goes to see the houses nearest in comparison to ours so to provide us with the best data driven recommendation on how to price our property. Furthermore, she did a great job marketing our house before it even went on the market. She had so many prospects lined up ahead of time that our house sold in less than 24 hours and we had 5 offers. Lastly, Dorie is an excellent negotiator. She worked amazing terms on our house, some which I had never seen put into practice before. The result was selling the house in 1-day, multiple offers as mentioned, with the winner being $90k over list. I have bought and sold 6 homes in my lifetime and Dorie is the absolute best realtor I have worked with. I highly recommend her to you.

"Dorie is a fantastic realtor and we would highly recommend her to anyone looking to sell their home. She is highly-skilled, experienced, professional and a great communicator. She made sure our house was priced right and came on the market at the perfect time, with great marketing. We had multiple offers on our house and she was awesome at communicating with the buyers' realtors, which was especially important for us because our home sale involved complicated relocation company paperwork. She kept us updated throughout the process and was very responsive. Even after we entered into a contract, she was superb at communicating and negotiating with the buyers' realtor to make sure the final sale process was smooth and timely. We were lucky to have Dorie as our realtor!"

In 1993 my husband and I purchased our very first home in Pflugerville, TX. Our relator was Gene Dillard a dynamic and remarkable man. Who would ever guess that 27 years later his wonderful wife Dorie Dillard would help us find our forever home in Georgetown, TX! Dorie Dillard has helped our family since we sold our home in Cedar Park, TX in 2016! That was a bittersweet move for us and Dorie helped us navigate that challenging time by selling our home during a less active market within a very reasonable time frame. In 2021 we returned to the Austin area and once again Dorie helped us navigate a vastly different buyer market by helping us find neighborhoods in our price point. Dorie is a remarkable realtor. She is truly knowledgeable about the industry and helps her clients understand the entire process from start to finish! Her passion for her work shows in how she collaborates with you and provides excellent service. Whether you are a first-time buyer/seller, or a seasoned one Dorie will make the process as smooth as possible. We could not have asked for a more wonderful person to help us buy our forever home! Thank you, Dorie, for a lifetime of help! We are blessed to have you in our lives!

Dorie is just that "Brilliantly Intuitive" regarding all things real estate, the current Market happenings, and Canyon Creek. Dorie is the best! She was thorough and professional and great to work with. She kept me informed. She was honest and forthright- no games, she also prepped and walked me through the closing process which was piece a cake! Dorie! Seriously you blew me away! All I had to do was listen, trust and follow and that is what I did, I will be forever grateful to you for your insight, knowledge, patience, and for helping me to lay the ground work for the journey ahead of me.

I honestly can’t say enough positive things about Dorie Dillard. I’ve owned two houses in Canyon Creek. Dorie Dillard has been my realtor for the last 12 or so years. Dorie was my agent for two houses that I owned in Canyon Creek. Dorie provided exceptional service as my seller’s agent for one house, and as my buyer’s agent as well as eventually selling my second house. Dorie is extremely knowledgeable about the entire real estate process, and her experience has been very apparent on each real estate transaction that she’s helped me over the last 12 years. In addition to be extremely knowledgably, what also constantly amazed me is the Dorie continually went above and beyond the service what I would normally expect from a realtor. One example of going above and beyond was during the time period leading up to and during the sale of both my houses. I wasn’t able to be in Austin because I had a family member who was very sick. Dorie helped coordinate practically all the renovations that I needed to get my houses ready to place on the market. Dorie certainly eased a lot of stress of selling a home and moving during a time that was already very stressful. Dorie was also super responsible whenever I had a question, always professional and just simply wonderful to work with. Also impressive was how Dorie understands the Austin real estate market (current and past), resulting in getting the absolute best price for both of my houses. My only regret is that I can’t use her in the state that I’m now living in 😊

We have worked with Dorie for the purchase of our home when we came to Austin 11 years ago and for our recent sale of our house. Dorie did such a fantastic job on our first experience that we recommended her to several of our friends that also went on to be lifetime customers of her. She is always available for good advice on who to get to do things in your home, she knows everyone they all love working with her. She knows the area, she knows the market, she knows how to get top dollar for your home coming away with everyone feeling great about the transaction. You can't do better.

Dorie helped us buy our home in the Canyon Creek community in April 2020. You can not find a better realtor in this community. Without doubt Dorie is THE BEST. She has the pulse of this community and goes over and beyond when it comes to services. She is a wealth of information, and is extremely dedicated and compassionate about her work. We highly recommend her!

I've been talking to Dorie off-and-on for the past five years. The very first time I met Dorie, I said to myself "someday Dorie is going to sell my house". Well, on Friday she did! Holy cow, did she ever!!! After 14 years of living on Chestnut Ridge Road, it's time for me to move on. Dorie helped guide me through the entire process of preparing my home for sale. She was a trusted business advisor, a talented sales agent, had an amazing network, and (quite often) acted as my therapist during anxious moments. I've worked with some wonderful agents in the past. But Dorie just CRUSHED IT. I never could have done this without her help and support. Thank you Dorie. From the bottom of my heart.

Dorie is an outstanding realtor. She knows the market, especially in Canyon Creek, better than anyone. She was our neighbor for 26 years, and we called upon her expertise when we considered remodeling projects and her advice as to what was important to buyers was helpful. When we decided to move to another city a few months ago, we naturally asked Dorie to be our real estate agent. She was wonderful! She led us through every step of the preparation for sale with excellent suggestions for all that needed to be done. We had a contract almost immediately when our house went on the market. Dorie’s help continued even after that, as she gave oversight to make sure that nothing was left undone. We highly recommend her.

"We were so lucky that Dorie was our talented & active partner in selling our old home as well as in buying our new one. while we learned so much from her tenure in the business, she also listened & adjusted deftly following many discussions in the very unique & personal processes. bottom line: our home sold in practically hours not days (or more), & even a complicated purchase (not on market, lease back, 3rd party handling logistics for the seller, etc.) all proved effortless for her. with not only a keen eye for quintessential client service & delivery, but also an alertness for the senses of urgency & immediacy in communications, Dorie highlighted to us the profound need for her role along the way. all delivered with good humor, shrewd investigation & classic grace, we were grateful for her nature as well as her knowledge. thank you Dorie - as we said at our 2nd closing, despite not planning to need to any time soon, we've never hoped to work with someone again so heartily."

Dorie is amazing! We talked to several agents when it came time to list our house in Canyon Creek and it was clear she was head and shoulders above the rest. Dorie was very upfront in communicating the pros and cons of our house. We took to heart her suggestions to get the house ready for market. I'm pleased to say we were under contract with a backup offer within 24 hours of listing. I highly recommend Dorie Dillard for any of your real estate needs!

We moved away from Austin so we asked Dorie to help us sell our house in July 2018. we chose her because of her extensive experience in our neighborhood. Dorie was prompt in responses and provided valuable suggestions on marketing the house. since we were away, Dorie had to work with our local contractor on getting the house ready for showing. and since it was already July we would need to get it ready before the Summer ended. our three way commutation was timely and clear. Dorie and the contractor got the house mostly ready in a couple of weeks after the tenant moved out. A buyer found us quickly and offered full price. Dorie followed the deadlines in the selling process closely and provided help along the way till we got incoming wire from the title company. She didn't pressure us to do anything we didn't want to do. overall the selling process has been smooth and quick. I would recommend her service to anybody who needs it.

Dorie helped my husband and I purchase our first home almost 10 years ago, and we have gone back to her for help with 3 other transactions since! She is SUPER responsive and highly attentive. It's a rare quality to be a high volume agent but also make your clients feel like you are never too busy for them - and this is exactly what Dorie does! We have been so grateful to work with Dorie, and we would recommend her to our family and friends in a heartbeat. Thanks Dorie for all of your hard work for us over the years!

Dorie did a fantastic job from prep work before we even met all the way to the day we signed the paperwork with the title company. She always kept us informed and offered fantastic advice all along the way and she has outstanding contacts throughout the industry. We were blessed to have Dorie as our agent.

We were so fortunate to have Dorie as our Realtor, she made all the difference in our house selling fast ! She helped us prepare, set us up with the help we needed and was always available to answer all of our questions. Our house sold in 4 days with multiple offers! We give her all the credit! She's the best!

We loved our old house and neighborhood but needed to downsize and relocate and Dorie made it happen in a way that was excellent in all regards. Dorie was very helpful in suggesting how to get our house ready for sale and did a nice job of marketing the house at a price that was actually a little above what we were expecting. We got an above list price offer on the first day and she made the rest of the process less stressful than it could have otherwise been.

08/02/2018
We would highly recommend Dorie Dillard to anyone seeking real estate services in the greater Austin area. Dorie represented us as a seller and she was meticulous in her analysis and comparable reviews. Through her networking and extensive marketing efforts we had an offer within 3 hours after going on the market and over asking price! Dorie played a critical role in negotiations and ultimately sold our house for the highest price per square foot in the neighborhood. I've also confidently referred her to our corporate relocation efforts and in all instances Dorie has exceeded expectations. Buying or selling a home is a huge endeavor - make sure you use an agent that is experienced, knowledgeable and highly committed to your satisfaction. Dorie is your Agent!

Shout out to Dorie Dillard and her Coldwell Banker team. They did a great job with the prep work, networking and advertising which resulted in our home being sold just days after it went onto the market. If you are looking to sell your home you need to contact Dorie. Her email address if you need it is dillard@reloaustin.com. Thank you Dorie for all you did for us!!!

“I want to tell you and others what a wonderful experience we had when you sold our house for us. You showed us how to stage our house to sell and helped us with each step of the process. You knew the market in our area and priced our house to sell. Our house sold in four days at full asking price. Thank you and if we had to do it again, you would be the first one we would call.”

Canyon Creek's #1 Realtor by far. She helped us buy our home and sell our home in Canyon Creek. I am in the mortgage business and deal with a lot of realtors and Dorie Dillard is by far the most knowledgeable and professional one I have met.

When we was looking for Realtors who can help us show homes in North Austin, we asked our friends for some recommendations. All of them gave us only one name - Dorie Dillard. They highly recommended her. But when we met Dorie for our 1st showing, she spoke very little. So we were surprised why so many of our friends recommended her. From 2nd showing onwards Dorie was on a blaze! Not only she showed us the homes that we loved but gave all the information we were looking for in a very organized fashion. It is them we realized that she was observing us very keenly what we liked and what we didn't during our 1st showing and hence spoke so little then. We found our perfect home in Canyon Creek with Dorie's help. 5 years later we again hired Dorie to help us sell our house. And again she has done a fantastic job. I highly recommend anyone one who is looking for new home or trying to sell theirs to hire Dorie without second thoughts.

Our experience with Dorie with both buying and selling a home was extremely positive. Our home sold in six days largely because of her expertise in marketing and staging our home. She was a highly effective advocate in facilitating closing our home purchase on schedule. The closing would have been delayed several days without her attention to detail and active involvement in pushing the mortgage company to gather/correct information required. Dorie’s communication with us was excellent. She responded to questions quickly and courteously and proactively avoided potential problems in the buying/selling process because of her years of experience. We would highly recommend Dorie to any potential buyer/seller and will definitely use her again.

We've worked with Dorie 3 times over the last 16 years. She was the listing agent on the house we bought when we first moved here in 2001, was the buyer's agent when we finally admitted we needed more room and moved to a larger home in the 'hood this year, and was the listing agent (again) on our original house. Dorie is the consummate professional real estate agent. She knows the local market better than anyone. She's open and honest about your prospects. She's super helpful in managing the complex process of buying and selling. She's well connected with folks that can help you get your place ready to sell, or fix issues in a place you just bought. She's engaged, but not pushy. She's super responsive and knowledgeable. She supports the neighborhood. And, honestly, she's a great project manager - helping keep us on track to complete the transaction. I highly recommend her for anyone looking to buy or sell in the Canyon Creek area.

We have just sold our house with Dories help. We have been watching her selling houses in Canyon Creek for years and noticed that her houses always sold quickly. It has been a very good experience for us. Dorie is very professional and knowledgeable. She also has a network of reliable business people who helped us set up the house in excellent condition quickly. I too would highly recommend Dorie to anyone buying or selling a home. in Canyon Creek.

Dorie knows the Canyon Creek market very well and worked very hard to guide us through the buying process when we moved within the community. She also helped us rent out our old property. She took on tasks which were the actual responsibility of the lender. We highly recommend Dorie!

My wife and I worked with Dorie Dillard in early 2016 to sell our Canyon Creek house. She was very professional and great to work with. She has many years of experience working with Canyon Creek residents and knows the surrounding area’s schools and local businesses. She was very thorough in getting our house staged and provided several recommendations for experienced trades’ people to get work done quickly and economically. With Dories leadership we received multiple offers and accepted one for more than the asking price within four days. I would highly recommend Dorie Dillard to anyone purchasing or selling a house in Canyon Creek.
