"Liz is knowledgable in a way that goes beyond the tactical details—she has a great sense of what property is the perfect fit and for the future possibilities of a place. She helped us map out the pro's and con's and gave us the context we needed to make a decision." - Jann
Liz was born in Venezuela and when she was three the family moved to
Angleton, southeast of Houston, where Liz grew up, spending much of her
time surfing on the Gulf Coast. She often visited the Hill Country area
when her father went deer hunting in nearby Llano and Kerrville. Some day,
she thought, she would live in Austin.
After school in San Marcos and eighteen years in Houston, Liz with her two
young daughters, Ellison and Natalie, did just that, moving to Austin in
1996, getting a job as an event planner at the University of Texas School
of Law, where she did everything from writing bios to coordinating visits
from members of the US Supreme Court. Austin was booming, and after a few
years at UT, Liz took part in the raising of one of the first of the modern
condo buildings, the iconic Nokonah, for which she was Senior Executive
Sales Associate. Liz worked with the development teams and handled much of
the marketing and all of the sales.
After completing the Nokonah, Liz joined the development team of Interurban
Development, a firm that focused on in-fill development using green methods
and materials. After three years, Liz realized that she had plenty of
hands-on experience with homes and how to sell and market them—all she
needed now was her real estate license. After getting it, she worked as a
realtor for eight years selling homes.
Liz loves to travel the state, especially to the coast of her youth and
west Texas, where she likes nothing better than spending time there with
family and friends. In Austin you can find her enjoying dinner and
margaritas with family and friends at Guero's, in her SoCo neighborhood,
where she lives with husband Mike, son Jack, and dog Charlotte.
