About Libby
Libby has enjoyed an accomplished career in real estate since her college days. She is a licensed in New York, California and Texas, and proud to serve clients in the greater Austin market. Libby specializes in new builds, condo developments and relocation, drawing on her vast network and referrals, and ability to help both newcomers from the east and west coasts, and Texas locals find the home that suits them best.

Always passionate about the business, Libby interned for Who’s Who in Luxury Real Estate as well as the brokerage firm Ewing & Clark in Seattle. She moved to New York City in 2005, and in her 12 years there, focused on new condo development sales and marketing. Libby successfully managed the sales gallery of the $1.5 billion Plaza Private Residences condo conversion, and worked with a top broker at Stribling & Associates, now Compass, on some of the most prestigious properties in the city. As a Top 25 agent in NYC, her arsenal of expertise has spanned from onsite to resales, to luxury new developments.

Libby subsequently relocated to Newport Beach, California with her husband, had a son, and continued on her residential real estate path. Ultimately though, she realized she wanted to be closer to family who live in the Texas Hill Country, and now she adores Austin living. Having uprooted herself from different states, Libby understands the intricacies of navigating a market, finding the right neighborhood for one’s lifestyle, and securing a new home. Her goal is to make the entire process educational, enjoyable, and seamless; something she does easily thanks to her attentiveness, persistence and drive.

As an expert in new condo development sales, Libby has found it quite exciting to watch the Austin skyline evolve, and be part of its changing real estate landscape. Whether your dream is to buy your first home, purchase a luxury property or sell your prized residence, she is fully dedicated to your needs.

Born and raised in Sterling, Illinois, Libby graduated from University of Washington with a BA in Communications; plus she received a Certificate of Sales from Foster School of Business. When not playing matchmaker with clients and properties, she enjoys going on culinary adventures around Austin with her husband John, taking her son to the Thinkery and local parks, as well as cooking and traveling.
