We’re excited to share that our platform is now available in Austin! After planting roots in major U.S. cities, we’ve set our sights on Austin, TX to continue our mission to connect small & medium sized businesses with office spaces. Brokers like Endeavor Real Estate, CBRE and Transwestern have already begun to work with us to market their properties to tenants in Austin.
Austin is a great market for us, as the city has recently been named as the best place in America to start a business by CNBC. The city has continued to grow, with an estimated population of over 2 million and is home to a handful of universities. The city’s overall economic activity has continued to expand at a quick pace. According to the Austin Chamber, the economy has gained 7.4% in the past 12 months.
“With all the city’s growth, there is a clear need for Truss by local business owners who are unfamiliar with the process of finding and leasing office space,” says Brenda Ridnour, Regional Senior Vice President, Business Development & Tenant Services at Truss.
Our goal with opening in Austin is to help those in the industry find the space that they are looking for as the city continues to develop more startups and small businesses. While we have deep roots in Washington, D.C. and Chicago, Austin marks the third city in Texas where we have office space available, including Dallas and Houston.
With our 3D virtual tours and price transparency, we are able to cut down the time it takes to tour properties by 50 percent. We are ready to share our platform with small and medium sized businesses in Austin and aim to make the renting process as painless and stress-free as possible for businesses and tenants – whether you’re grabbing a cup of coffee or heading to the airport, the process is simple, interactive and straight to the point.
