Having immigrated from Szczecin, Poland at a young age, Karol has been proud to call Austin her home for the past 18 years. She’s seen it change from a small university-centered town to a bustling metroplex with enough restaurant choices to make even the most educated foodie swoon. During her time at The University of Texas at Austin, she double majored in Communication Studies and Spanish Language and studied abroad for a year in Barcelona, Spain. She’s fluent in both Spanish and Polish.
Her former career as a regional manager at a Fortune 500 Insurance Company helped hone Karol’s negotiation skills and develop a talent for educating and guiding people (she is a self-described ‘teacher at heart’). This led her to a career in real estate, where she shares her insights and knowledge of the city’s neighborhoods and her firsthand experience as a central Austin real estate investor to benefit her clients as she helps them navigate the changing Austin market.
She’s lived and owned property in many parts of the city: Hyde Park, Crestview, West Campus, Riverside, Downtown, Far West, North Austin, and even Cedar Park. Since 2012, she’s called the neighborhood of Allandale her home and feels lucky to be a part of the Austin urban landscape, enjoying the walkability to neighboring Burnet shops, parks, and restaurants. During her free time, she loves reading nonfiction books, volunteering at her kids’ schools, watching her son play baseball, and traveling whenever her schedule allows for it. Her weekends are often spent greening her thumb in her 750 square foot garden or helping her husband restore his grandfather’s massive 1976 Chevy Silverado.
