When you are buying or selling property in today's real estate market, it's important to have confidence in your real estate professional. My commitment as your local REALTOR® is to provide you with the specialized real estate service you deserve. I do my best to stay up-to-date on Austin's ever-changing real estate market.
I am a native Texan and grew up in Abilene. I attended college at Hardin-Simmons University and received my degree in Communications. During my college years, I worked as a director at the local CBS news station. As soon as I graduated, I knew I wanted to move to Austin, so I did just that in 1999. I worked at KVUE (ABC) for two years. While working at KVUE, I purchased my first home and became interested in home sales. So I decided then to make the career change to real estate.
I became a licensed real estate agent in 2001 and received my real estate broker's license in 2004. I worked for JB Goodwin Realtors for over three years and RE/MAX Austin Skyline for four years. I now own Austin Avenue Real Estate Company, which is a boutique realty company focused on providing my clients exceptional service. My interest in real estate began when I closed on the purchase of my own home. As a first time homebuyer, I was glad to have the professional assistance to walk me through the home buying process.
As a REALTOR®, I always try to go beyond expectations to make sure my clients experience a smooth real estate transaction. Most of my business comes from referrals. For this reason, it is extremely important that I have satisfied clients. The best "thank you" to me is a referral from a past client of mine.
If you are considering buying or selling a home in Austin and want the assistance of a full time REALTOR®, please don't hesitate to contact me. I have the skills, experience and confidence to assist clients at all levels. And as a REALTOR®, I strictly abide by our "Code of Ethics". I also take care of walking my clients through the entire real estate transaction as opposed to handing clients off to other agents ("the team concept"). I have found it difficult to provide the personal attention that clients want when they are being handed off to transaction coordinators. That is why I take care of my own clients through closing.
If you are looking to buy, sell, or invest in the Austin luxury home market, please feel comfortable that you are working with a qualified REALTOR®. I have received my CLHMS (Certified Luxury Home Marketing Specialist) designation and am familiar with the delicacy and confidentiality that is needed with higher profile clientele. I also have earned the ABR (Accredited Buyers Agent) designation.
I am married and have one daughter. My husband, Andrew, is a Real Estate Appraiser, so he is very understanding and supportive of my crazy work schedule, which works out great. As for personal interests, I love running and cycling. I also enjoy shopping, live music, festivals, traveling, and spending time with family and friends. It will only take a few minutes spent with me to realize how much I truly love living in Austin. This is my home and hopefully always will be. I feel very fortunate to live in this amazing city.
