Whether it’s looking for the right buyer for the property that you are selling, searching for just the right place for you to call home or helping you locate your next investment property, real estate is what motivates me!
I have called Austin home for over 30 years. I moved to Austin in 1987 to attend UT. After completing my degree, I spent more than 20 years as a consultant for clients all over the world - helping my clients define, develop and implement solutions to meet their specific needs. I am a real estate agent and real estate investor.
There are a couple of rules that guide me as I do business:
• Treat everyone fairly. Be honest and ethical. Don't to lie, cheat or steal. If you’re good at something, you don’t have to.
• The client’s experience is critical. If the client isn’t satisfied, nothing else really matters, because they won’t be a client anymore.
At the end of the day, it’s about meeting the needs and exceeding the expectations of my clients. Achieving results is key and critical. I have spent my professional career doing just that and I welcome the opportunity to work with you to help you achieve your dreams!
I lived in London
In 1994, after 17 years in a family-owned Austin construction business and 12 years as Sales and Marketing Director for an Austin based hotel chain, becoming a Realtor made perfect sense.
In 2006 Robin was recruited by one of the top boutique luxury brokerages and over the next 5-1/2 years consistently ranked as a company top producer while solidifying her reputation as a Luxury Residential Specialist. Add in a healthy mix of seasoned investors, and resources for relocating buyers and sellers, and you'll find Robin to be one of the most dynamic and diverse Realtors in Austin today.

Since 2011 Robin has been recognized - not only for her leadership role in real estate - but also for her commitment to the community by being named one of the Platinum Top 50 Realtors in Austin.
In June 2012 Robin was selected by an Austin brokerage to help shape their new brainchild, a luxury boutique homes division. Purposefully positioned to compete with the local boutique brokerages, this mega think-tank quickly rose to the top ranks and continues to operate today. Within a few months of joining Austin Portfolio Real Estate, Robin became a member of the Master Faculty at Keller Williams University where she enjoyed teaching success skills to new agents. In 2017 Robin served on Keller Williams' Education Committee helping shape future programs.
My Perfect Day
Outdoors anywhere with family and our Labs
San Gabriel, California
Robin is proud to call herself an honorary native Austinite, having arrived “home” in 1971. She has seen the city grow from an oil, gas, and cattle dependent community, to the culturally rich and tech savvy city we know today. "Having first-hand experience and successfully weathering the highs and lows of the real estate market gives me an edge because I really do understand the Austin market." From 1999-2004 Robin split her time between Austin and London, UK where she lived and worked part-time. There she gained invaluable experience in the UK real estate market by regularly attending premier property auctions, networking with key agents, and previewing lots of properties. Relocating over the pond? Put Robin's international expertise to work for you.
I completed a triathlon at age 50
My granddaughter's zest for life
Robin enjoys spending time with family and especially her granddaughter, Austin. She can regularly be found at Red Bud Dog Park with her trusty old Lab, listening to live music, taking in an indie flick, or traveling. She is a long-time volunteer for SXSW and actively participates in the West Lake Hills City Council Meetings and community projects. Robin opens her home to foster dogs for the Heart of Texas Lab Rescue, volunteers at the Austin Animal Center, Community First!, and is always ready to serve as a committee member for the Austin Board of Realtors. 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.

3 of her Favorite Things
3 Favorite Things About AUSTIN
“Robin is a-m-a-z-i-n-g. She is knowledgeable, a shrew negotiator, and extremely patient. This was my first home purchase and she educated me along the way so it didn’t feel as scary as I expected. I’d highly recommend Robin to anyone looking to buy or sell a home. I know she will be the first one I call when I’m ready to buy my next home.”
~B Smith, Austin, Texas
“We’ve bought and sold 4 houses through the years with Robin. Each one a move up into a bigger house and a better neighborhood. We are so happy with our current home we may never move again! Robin provided steady input and guidance throughout the transaction and was present at closing.”
~J Stainze, Austin, Tx
“We were relocating here and not sure where exactly we wanted to live. Robin spent the time to lay out the city, describe traffic challenges, and knew the right questions to ask regarding work, schools, leisure activities, etc. As a result we ended up in the perfect location and are very happy with our new home. We tell everyone about Robin – she really does know Austin!”
~Bob and Joanne
“If you want a pain free home buying experience, heard nightmares about buying a home from friends and relatives, but that didn’t happen with Robin.”
“Robin gave me valuable advice for preparing my home to sell and within one week I received an offer. She was always available during the sale and even helped navigate the purchase of another home. Simultaneous closings happened and before I knew it I was in my new home. Seamless.”
~E Whittington, Bastrop, Tx
