Kay Lawley

REALTOR®, TRIBE REALTY

I’ve lived in Austin since ‘85, and have spent the past 19 years in the local housing market. I began as an investor specializing in buying and flipping rental properties, and obtained a real estate license 8 years ago so I could share my passion for real estate with others—helping them find investment properties or their dream home.

I love Austin, particularly Central Austin—its charm, cozy neighborhoods, tree-lined streets, and abundance of quaint, unique homes. Naturally, I tend to concentrate my real estate practice in this area, surrounding neighborhoods, and luxury properties along Lake Austin. This part of Austin offers most homeseekers the opportunity to find something perfect for them—and the treasure hunt is my favorite part. I have a particular knack for finding homes with character, developing an intuition, and knowing when I walk by a house if it’s the one.

Whether you’re looking for a quiet bungalow or a multimillion dollar luxury property, I have lots of experience digging for cool, interesting properties that will align with your expectations, even if I must search outside MLS. I’ll do whatever it takes to help find the perfect home, and treat all my clients equal whether a first-time home buyer searching for a $100,000 condo, or an experience buyer seeking a high-profile investment. While I thrive on thinking outside the box, when it comes time for negotiation, inspections, paperwork, and the common headaches of purchasing a home, my business savvy ensures a smooth transaction.

I love taking the time to get to know you really well, learning about your lifestyle and day-to-day life; my inspiration is seeing you happy in your living situation. In fact, many of my clients are repeat clients, and many of my first-time clients are referrals. I promise to take the time to build lasting relationship with you, so I can continue to help you (and yours) down the road in any way I can.
