"Would highly recommend Carla and her associates. They got to work quickly on our home to make it more attractive via virtual staging. They utilized many methods to attract potential buyers. Within 3 weeks, we had an excellent offer. Carla was very skilled throughout the negotiation and closing processes. She was also pleasant, good humored, and straight forward. I would recommend her without hesitation! Thank you to Carla and Lauren!" - Cheryl
"I have purchased many properties over the years and worked with many agents. I'm new to Austin and I have to say, I clicked with Carla right away and she was amazing to work with. Since she has a long history here in Austin, she is a wealth of knowledge and resources. She really helped me narrow down my search of neighborhoods very quickly as I really had no idea when I first started looking. She's down to earth, listened to my wants/needs and really understood what I was looking for. She was very pro-active in finding homes to view and found me my perfect home. During the actual buying process she was there every step and negotiated on point for me. I had a perfect buying experience with Carla and as long as I am in the Austin area, she will be my Realtor for any future home purchases or sales."
"We were out of town buyer. For more than 2 months Carla filtered through all the houses on sale and sent us emails on the ones met our requirements and when we finally came to town she spent whole weekend with us and after we decided on a house she worked and negotiated and helped us successfully beated other buyers and secured the one house we like in 2 hours. She is a very professional realtor, works proficiently with great knowledge and skill. We are very lucky to have her help us buying a house we like."
"Carla helped us sell our home (10 days) in Horseshoe Bay Texas, as well as helped us find our new home in Horseshoe Bay. She was very professional but always had our satisfaction at the top of her list. We would highly recommend Carla as the elite agent she is. There is no doubt in our minds that any real estate buyer or seller would be 100% satisfied with her performance." - Tony
"When it comes to my real estate transactions, Carla is my go-to expert. I've worked with her since 2008 on multiple transactions and every time, despite very different parameters, she's handled each with clarity and expertise beyond my expectations. I could not imagine not having her on my side as she is truly my best advocate."
As a third-generation Austinite, I’m deeply in tune with this city’s culture and character. My grandparents Charles and Angie Umlauf instilled in me a love of art and design. Now, as the family representative for the Umlauf Sculpture Garden and Museum Board, I work with trustees and the city to uphold their legacy and gifts to the City of Austin.
I began my career in Child Protective Services directly after obtaining my B.A. in Social Work from UT Austin. This meaningful and challenging work laid the foundation for my success in real estate; it was the ultimate lesson in client advocacy, crisis management, confidentiality, and negotiations.
I made the move into real estate in 2006 and became Rookie of the Year. I've been a consistent multi-million dollar producer ever since. I have over 15 years of experience collaborating with buyers, sellers, architects and builders and have a breadth of design and construction acumen.
Executives from Amazon, Charles Schwab, Northern Trust, RGM Advisors, C3 Presents, Frog Design, and Austin NNN have trusted me with their business in Austin and so can you.
