In 1995, after 17 years in a family-owned Austin construction company and 12 years as Sales and Marketing Director for an Austin based hotel chain, becoming a realtor made perfect sense.
Robin spent 12 years honing her skills in the hip and popular 78704 zip code in Austin where more musicians and artists live than in any other zip code in the world! In 2006 Robin was recruited by one of the top boutique luxury brokerages in Austin. Over the next 5-1/2 years she successfully built her reputation as a Luxury Residential Specialist and consistently ranked as one of the company Top Producers. In December 2011, Robin was recognized not only for her leadership role in real estate, but for her commitment to the Austin community by being selected as one of the Platinum Top 50 Realtors in Austin. With momentum now firmly in place, in April 2012, Robin was featured as Agent of the Month in the national publication, “Top Agent Magazine”.
In June 2012 Robin was invited by Keller Williams Luxury Homes International to join a select group of agents specifically chosen to help shape their new brainchild and pinnacle of boutique property shops known as, Austin Portfolio Real Estate. This mega think-tank is quickly becoming one of the leading power houses for Austin real estate.
Robin is proud to call herself an honorary Native Texan, having arrived "home" in Austin in 1971. Since then she has watched the city grow from an oil, gas, and cattle dependent community to the culturally rich and tech savvy city we know today. "Having experienced Austin first-hand, then and now, gives me an edge on the competition because I really do understand the Austin market."
From 1999-2004 Robin regularly commuted from Austin to London where she lived and worked part-time. There she gained invaluable experience in the international real estate market by regularly attending premier property auctions, networking with key area agents, and previewing lots and lots of properties. Moving to the UK or Ireland? Ask Robin, she can help. Moving to the U.S.? Put Robin's expertise to work for you.
Robin enjoys spending time with family and especially her awesome granddaughter, Austin. She can regularly be found walking Red Bud Dog Park with Sid, her trusty old Labrador, listening to live music, taking in an indie flick, traveling, or whenever possible, performing with the South Austin Gospel Choir. She is a long-time volunteer for the SXSW Music and Film Festival, SXSW Eco, Austin Pets Alive, the Black Stallion Literacy Project, and regular Austin Board of Realtors committee member – just to name a few. Additionally, she serves as a Director on the Curriculum Advisory Board for the Arkansas Therapeutic Massage Institute and Spa, recognized in 2007 and 2010 as the best training facility in Hot Springs, Arkansas. Robin also likes to boast at age 50 she participated in and completed her first triathlon, sponsored by Danskin in support of breast cancer awareness.
