With over 20 years of experience as a Real Estate Appraiser serving the Central Texas area, and as a Designated Listing Specialist, I bring to my clients the experience and qualifications to help them obtain the best return from their most valued asset – their home.
I have many years of experience in analyzing markets and evaluating residential, investment, multi-family/income-producing properties, as well as luxury, vacant land and farm/ranch properties in Austin and the surrounding Texas Hill Country.
In addition, I hold the special Green Designation from the National Association of Realtors, reflecting special proficiency in Green building initiatives and awareness of the environmental impact of building. As a co-owner of Renove Residential Investments, LLC, which specializes in rehabilitating homes and restoring them to energy-efficient and gracious living status, I have gained experience which provides me with current, accurate information on how to identify problem areas in a home which could be pitfalls to a buyer. This allows me to provide a general idea of repair costs, as well as an idea of an expected rate of return.
I also hold these other industry designations:
GRI – Graduate of the Real Estate Institute
SRS – Seller Representative Specialist
TRLP – Texas Association of Realtors Leadership Academy
I co-owned an appraisal and real estate brokerage firm serving Austin and the Hill Country from 1994 to 2008. I am very active with the Austin Board of Realtors, and currently serve on the Board of Directors. I also serve on the Texas Association of Realtors Board of Directors. I am very passionate about our industry and strive to be a part of making it better every day.
I have lived in Austin and Hill Country for over 23 years. I lived in Wimberley for 15 years before moving to beautiful Driftwood in 2008. While I have chosen to currently reside in the hill country I have had offices and lived in North Austin, South Austin and East Austin. I love working in both the city and hill country to find the perfect match for my clients whether it be urban or rural. I have a special love of animals, and for over 15 years was a breeder/exhibitor of prize-winning Bouvier des Flandres, including showings at the famous Westminster Dog Show. I support Animal Trustees of Austin and WAG the Wimberley Area Adoption Group.
My goal is simple …
