Owner / Broker
I specialize in residential real estate but have some experience in land and commercial sales. I represent my clients in the purchase and sales of residences and income property within Williamson and Travis Counties. I make it my priority to be a strong negotiator and put my client s needs first. I ve been in real estate for over seven years and I love what I do. I have been involved in various types of transactions and am confident that I can handle anything that comes my way. You, as my client, are my number one priority and I will ensure you understand and feel confident in the process from start to finish.
I’m originally from South Bend, Indiana, but didn’t remain there long. I moved from Indiana to Mesquite, TX, then back to Indiana and on to Roanoke, VA where I graduated high school. My youth was filled with extra-curricular activities and organizations centered on school, church and athletics. Once I graduated from High School I joined the US Navy and remained for ten years and within those ten years I had moved to eight different duty stations. To say the least, I have tons of experience with moving. I understand how stressful it can be – if it’s a local move or long distance.
In my spare time I enjoy working in the yard, swimming, painting and or just relaxing and reading a book. My life revolves around my friends and family. Most all of my clients become friends, and spending time with them and helping them find the right real estate fit always makes me happy. I make it a point to get to know my clients so I can understand what their specific needs are when it comes to their next home, business or investment property. My goal is not to just sell a property, my goal is to make the family I’m working with happy and confident with the decisions they have made. That’s why my family loves helping your family.
Co-Owner / Realtor®
I have lived in Austin since 1994, and have been selling real estate in the area for over 20 years. My daughters, Stella and Fiona, and I love the Austin area and all it provides for fun and recreation. My early career began in technology, but transitioned into real estate, as I began buying my own investment properties throughout Central Texas. My affinity for the business was realized as my client base expanded and set me on this path.
As a seasoned professional with extensive experience in purchasing and selling all types of real estate – from residential to commercial and investment properties – I have been in every scenario imaginable. I am able to navigate through complex real estate transactions so my clients have the smoothest road to a closing date as possible. Armed with a team of professionals from every area of the business, you will have anything you need at your fingertips, be it inspectors, lenders, contractors, lawyers…whatever the scenario demands. I want to put my tough negotiating and client advocacy skills to work for you. I love my job and there is nothing more satisfying to me than meeting my client’s needs and making their dream a reality.
