Dedicated to You Having a Fantastic Real Estate Experience!
First, let me just say, it's not at all about me! It's about you, and helping you find your niche' in Austin; a place to raise your family, retire, or enjoy the single lifestyle. Austin has so much to offer you!
I've lived in Austin over 35 years, and have been a Realtor since 2007. There are so many reasons why I'm still in Austin. Before choosing Austin, I traveled the world, and lived in 12 different places, and in 6 different states. I know this city now, as the cliche' goes, "like the back of my hand", and I will put that experience to help you and/or your family find a wonderful home. (Want to know a "cut-thru" town and not get stuck on Mopac or IH 35?--Turn off your GPS, and call me now!)
My degrees are from the University of Texas and Kansas State, and I worked in laboratory medicine for over 25 years (and did cancer research at M. D. Anderson Hospital in Houston), helping people with their health care needs. My passion is creative design, and that is the primary reason I am in Austin. I love the outdoors, (second reason), was a first class Girl Scout (like an Eagle Scout, but for girls), and my nature is calm, friendly, creative, sarcastic and detail orientated.
Austin is a hub of creativity. People who think "outside the box" really do love it here. Whether your passion is architecture, the outdoors, nature parks & trails, museums, or computers, you can fulfill it in Austin. Apple, Dell, Samsung, AMD, 3M, Applied Material, Motorola, HomeAway, Google and Facebook are all here for a reason! Austin offers a lifestyle that attracts creative people, no matter what their passion is. Creativity grows exponentially with collaboration, and like-minded people gravitate toward like-minded people.
Austin has a home for you, too, and I want to help you find it. There are more fun filled adventures waiting for you than you can imagine. I must warn you, though, your "bucket" list will grow! But isn't that what life is about? Your experiences are what make you, "YOU"! So get ready to expand your horizons, your knowledge and your creativity!
You'll often hear "Keep Austin Weird". Like Forest Gump said in the movie, "Life is like a box of chocolates, you just never know what you are going to find!" The diversity is what makes Austin great! Whether your passion is biking, hiking, swimming, spelunking, boating, fishing, water skiing, visiting wineries, shopping, music or dining, it can all be found in old Waterloo, (which is what Austin used to be called--Sorry a little history lesson thrown in, too!)
There are 7 lakes on the Colorado River, a chain of lakes, called the Highland Lakes, three of which run thru Austin. There are so many fun-filled, water-related activities to experience, places to go and things to do, you'll never want to leave Austin until your own bucket list is complete! So, to help you get started with your Austin bucket list, I recommend adding the spring fed Hamilton and Barton Spring Pools, as well as the Bob Bullock Museum, the Texas Capitol, the Driscoll Hotel, the Umlauf Sculpture Garden, South By Southwest, the Austin City Limits Festival, the Zilker Park Festival of Lights and, of course, Soco, the West End and Sixth Street at night. Whew! You're going to be here awhile, too, just like me!
Whether you are Buying or Selling real estate, my enthusiasm, attention to the details, and my commitment to making your real estate experience unparalleled, will keep my name at the top of your list when it comes to Austin real estate.
