About Lou

We’ve all heard that knowledge is power, but in reality knowledge is only power if it is used.  And if knowledge is put to use in helping people make informed decisions about real estate, one of the most important financial decisions they will undertake, then it’s a very good thing.


Knowledge, empathy, hard work and genuine caring for people and their welfare have served me well in my real estate career, and these traits have allowed me to help hundreds of families and individuals with their real estate purchases since 1983.  I have been able to maintain a great relationship with the majority of these clients, consider many of them friends and am proud to be the Realtor of choice for their repeat business and their referrals of family members and friends.  


My concentration is in residential real estate – homes, lots, land, townhomes, condominiums and multi-family residences.  I have worked with numerous companies and individuals moving to Austin over the years.  They have for the most part bought homes near their work place.  I’m proud to say that most of these past clients call on me to sell these homes when their needs change, and it necessitates that I work a large area.  My service area basically is from Georgetown to Kyle and from Dripping Springs/Wimberley to Manor/Elgin/Taylor/Florence.  Because of pressure from clients to help them with their needs in the Highland Lakes area, I now also service the lakes, and in addition to my Austin Board of Realtors affiliation, I am now a member of the Highland Lakes Association of Realtors.


After a career in the newspaper business with stints in Abilene, Austin, Cleveland, TN, Auburn, AL, Natchez, MS and Houston, MS, I moved back to Austin to begin my real estate career in 1983, beginning with Nash Phillips/Copus Homebuilders.  I have learned a lot from each real estate company association

While the vast majority of my business comes from referrals, I welcome new clients who will most likely become friends and advocates as well.
