A sharp, sensible New Yorker. A down-to-earth Midwesterner. A visionary West Coaster. An Austin transplant who intimately understands what you need to thrive in the city’s booming market. Libby Leahy’s versatility endears her to luxury buyers and sellers.
Libby brings almost 20 years of residential real estate expertise. The New York City condo market provided her foundational experience, where she cut her teeth in complex negotiations and forged relationships with hard-driving developers. Upon moving to Austin, she joined Concierge Auctions where she honed her expertise in luxury real estate auctions. At Compass, her ascendency in the city’s luxury market has been swift, from $4.5MM in year-one transactions to $25MM in 2021. Libby’s agility shines when collaborating off-market with developers and clients on custom builds, uncovering a unicorn property in the challenging single-family home market, or helping clients traverse the complexities of purchasing a luxury downtown condo.
Libby’s no-nonsense approach is driven by personal experience, coming to Austin by way of Seattle-SoCal-Chicago-New York. Clients new to Austin appreciate her candor, embodied by real-talk on walkability and commuting times, helping her clients navigate the school system, or digging deep to find them the perfect neighborhood for their lifestyle. Her fresh perspective appeals to Austin buyers and sellers whether they were born and raised here or have recently made this city their home.
Libby lives in Mueller with her husband and two children. She loves her adopted hometown, whether exploring her neighborhood on foot, discovering kid-friendly restaurants, or hiking in the Hill Country.
