Matt and his wife, Vannessa, chose to start a family and move to Buda because of the strong sense of community, excellent area schools and an amazing quality of life. After researching communities from Cedar Park to San Marcos, Wimberley to Bastrop, and everywhere in-between, Buda had it all when it came to raising a family and enjoying life to the fullest.
