New Braunfels Popularity
Growing up, and a native of New Braunfels, it is amazing to see the popularity of this quaint town increase to such amazing numbers. The few times we would go out for fast food while growing up we had but two choices. Joe’s Fried Chicken and Robars. That was it in the entire town just 40 years ago. Looking back and watching the amazing transformation of New Braunfels has been fun. I was always proud of New Braunfels and its rich German Heritage. Since a young boy, growth and new construction was exciting for me to see. I wanted the roads to expand, tall building to be built. I wanted my friends who came in from out of town to see New Braunfels as a vibrant place. Once a teenager, I knew that New Braunfels had something special to offer. It location between two major cities (Austin and San Antonio) made it a perfect place for a short commute to large employment opportunities. The unique rivers (Guadalupe River and Comal River) allow for fun and excitement.
Just in the last five years, New Braunfels has seen tremendous advancements and improvements. New shopping, eating, and medical facilities have all sprung up in this town. You drive past these areas on a Friday or Saturday evening and you just wonder where did all these people shop and eat just five years ago? Well, the answer is real simple, many of those people were not here in the area.
Just this week, (May 18, 2016), New Braunfels was recognized as the second faster growing city in the nation. (See article from www.My SA.com below). Marksman Homes has certainly seen this as well. In the last year alone, over 75% of Marksman Homes Custom Homes, and over 80% of the major remodeling jobs, have been in the New Braunfels and nearby surrounding Texas Hill Country.

Is this trend going to stop? Since Comal County (the county in which most of New Braunfels is located) is also one of the nations fastest growing “large counties”, and it encompasses such a large land mass of the popular and picturesque Texas Hill Country, I see no end to this growth any time soon.
