Meet The Team
My real estate journey began in 2004 when I worked as a marketing agent for a local management company. Within months I realized that the management firm lacked integrity. I watched closely and came to realize just how badly the industry needed a company whose foundation was built on honesty and reliability. This is when the dream of owning a business was developed.
In 2005, within a few months – at the ripe age of 21 – I wrote an extensive business plan for a new property management company. By July 2005, we opened our doors! Within a year, we were managing several hundred homes throughout the Austin, Texas, area.
Since 2005, I have learned the ups and downs of property management and obtained firsthand knowledge of what it takes to be proactive in this business. My passion is helping those in need, and I thrive by relieving our clients of the burden of day-to-day management by providing a workplace and team built on honesty, reliability, and love for what we do.
I am a detail-oriented person, and expect perfection when delivering the type of services I’m asked to provide. With 512-Society, you can rest easy knowing we are proactive in our management approach, and that we have a plan, a backup plan, and a backup plan for the backup plan. You can rest assured that we can handle it, no matter what comes our way.
In my free time you can catch me playing in the yard with 2 great kids and our 2 Mini Schnauzers. I also keep my husband busy with the never-ending honey-do projects (I enjoy changing up the house as often as I can)!

Client Relations Director, REALTOR®
I grew up in the Cascade Mountains of Washington state. I was a rambunctious boy who had no fear and enjoyed playing in the dirt, camping, and riding my horse to elementary school (not allowed I later found out).
In 2001, I enrolled in the Diver Institute of Technology (DTI) in Seattle to study becoming a commercial diver. Within 3 years, I was a saturation diver, diving to depths of 700 ft. At that depth, everything is pitch black, and I would work 8-hour shifts in sheer darkness to fix pipelines (yes, in the dark). To be a great sat diver, you need quick wit, patience, and a knack for problem solving.
After 15 years as a diver, I retired and began renovating and flipping homes. This is when I realized I had a real passion for real estate – so it became a career.
When working with my clients, there are times that quick wit and problem solving can save them thousands. My superpower is that I never get frazzled by an obstacle. I think swiftly and proficiently when I work, which can make all the difference in the overall ROI or asset liquidity my clients demand.
When I’m not helping clients acquire or sell their properties, I am seen on my mini farm with my 2 kids and wife.
3 things people are shocked to learn about me:
- I helped flip the Costa Concordia cruise ship that ran aground
- I can fall asleep while standing up
- I saved the life of a man who was laying at the bottom of a pool in 2020 (My daughter calls me a superhero)
Office Coordinator, REALTOR®
Growing up, my father served as an MP in the United States military. Though we were transferred to Germany for a few years, I am a Texan, born and raised. After retiring from the military, we moved to Virginia where I finished my last 2 years of high school.
During and after high school, I worked at the Department of Homeland Security in the Immigration division. Back then, it was my dream to pursue law and graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Justice Studies from James Madison University, Virginia, and an associates degree in Social Science from Tidewater Community College.
As fate would have it, I chose to move back to Texas instead of attending law school, and began a career in project management for an engineering firm. In 2014, I obtained my Texas real estate license and found myself in the law field again, this time as a right-of-way agent.
My past life experiences led me down the real estate path in a way I least expected. My knack for researching and retaining law allows me to find properties, answer my client’s questions, and obtain a deep knowledge of the market so I can help them make the best decision. I love finding the perfect place for a client to call home.
My husband and I have 2 children, and in my free time you’ll find me drawing, crafting, playing with our dogs or our kids.

Born in San Antonio, Texas, Art moved to Irving in 1965 where he began his 35-year career with IBM as an office equipment service technician. In 1976, he transferred down to the Austin area and has been here ever since. Although Austin has drastically changed in the past 35 years, Art still knows all the unheard of back roads that help him avoid all the traffic! Fishing alongside his trusted sidekick, Rusty (a Toy Poodle), at the Gulf Coast area is where you can find him when he gets any time off.
In 2009, Art began his position with 512-Society as the Lead Maintenance Tech. You will often see him at the properties fixing any problem that tenants requested he fix. Art’s favorite quote is from the Bible, from Joshua 24:15: “As for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.”

Our job is to ensure property owners are maximizing their investments and realizing a lucrative ROI on a constant basis.
