Donna has been a resident of Austin since 1974. She has been experiencing the growth of Austin before Mopac, 183 and the Pennybacker bridge were here and when your skipper pin was the ticket to live music on Town Lake. Her infatuation with the city has only evolved alongside the city itself. She loves passing on this knowledge and working with people new to Austin; it allows her to be a tour guide in her favorite city and to show buyers the corners of town that will fit them best.
Donna's passion for enriching lives through relationships is the foundation for her real estate business. Her skills have been honed by her prior experience managing retail centers and commercial warehouses, supervising multi-family apartment complexes, remodeling, and building new construction with the family business of Shoemaker Properties. She has successfully raised two young Texas college graduates who are now in new roles in the professional world.
Donna brings a wealth of knowledge about schools, neighborhoods, extracurricular activities, and all things Austin to her clients. She loves to help in any part of the real estate journey. Donna's desire is to not only be your Realtor, but a resource for you, your family, and your friends for life. To her, you are more than just a client - you are the best part of building friendships!
Originally from Michigan, Kristen has now been in Austin nearly 15 years. Initially drawn to the people and the diversity of the town, her love of the city has only grown through the years. She loves the vast landscapes Austin offers and the endless opportunities they create. Part of what drew her into real estate was getting to know the different attributes across the town from the serenity of the lake to the energy of the city. She loves understanding the lifestyle of her clients and finding the perfect pocket to fit their needs.
With extensive experience in residential home building, project managing renovations and interior design, moving into real estate was an easy and exciting transition. The exposure she got and relationships she formed positioned her perfectly to start working with clients directly. She loves that every scenario is different and gets to create a very customized approach with each of her clients. Her professional philosophy is based on building trust and authentic relationships to create not only the most successful real estate experience, but the most enjoyable one as well!
