About Tony Houle

Hi there! Thanks so much for stopping by. I look forward to working with you. Although I am not a native to the area, I was introduced to Horseshoe Bay in 2000 and have been visiting ever since. I love the lakes, parks, small towns, and friendly, welcoming people. After spending time living in Fort Worth and Houston, working with some great people, serving my country oversees, and starting a family, the Highland Lakes area has been a great place to put down some roots. The change has been wonderful for my family and me. I hope that I can use my experience to help you find your own lake living.
