From Journalism to Real Estate

My background in journalism has instilled in me a curiosity to understand people's stories. In real estate, this translates to understanding your vision, whether it's for a luxury home, commercial development land or a sprawling ranch or winery. Clients often express surprise at the depth of my questions, but it's this very approach that allows me to find their "perfect fit."

Your Vision, My Expertise

Having mastered diverse and complex deals, I bring strategy and creativity to the table. My years in public relations and marketing have equipped me with the skills to effectively showcase the properties I am selling, ensuring they stand out in the market. But beyond successful transactions, what I truly cherish are the relationships I build with my clients.

Together, Towards Your Next Chapter

The initial conversations with clients are always special whether they are selling or buying. It's a window into their aspirations, and I consider it a privilege to guide them through their real estate journey while protecting their interests. My commitment is to ensure you are well-informed and confident at every step. Let's collaborate and make your next move the best one yet. I also have a network of agents across the country. If you are moving from Austin to a new city or state, I can help you find the perfect agent in your new destination.
