About Us


SmartSouce Realty is a full service real estate company offering sales, leasing, property management, and mortgage services. We are experts at assisting investors in purchasing rental properties. We can help investors find a rental property, originate a mortgage at an aggressive rate, assist in making repairs, get home ready for lease, find a tenant, and manage the property. The more services you choose, the more savings we can provide you.

If you are a first time buyer, we can simplify your home purchase and help educate you in the process. We can explain the loan process in detail, pre-qualify you for a mortgage, and educate you through the whole home purchase process. Any Realtor can show you a property and open a door. Very few can provide consulting service on mortgage services, credit repair, and real estate services. We can discuss down payment requirements, debt ratios, closing costs, cash reserves, fico score requirements, and gift guidelines. If your credit needs repair, we can provide guidance in increasing your credit fico score. If you need assistance in getting pre-qualified for a mortgage, please contact us.

Because we are a smaller real estate firm with lower overhead than other large companies, we pass our cost savings to our customers. We offer sellers aggressive move-up and move-down programs. For owners who have limited equity, we offer a fee for service listing program that will save owners thousands of dollars. Whether you have outgrown your existing home and need to purchase a larger home, need to downsize, or are in a negative equity position, we have a customized listing program to help you sell your home quickly and maximize your profits and sales proceeds.

Call us today at 512-257-9836 and let us help you with your real estate transaction.

I grew up in Beverly Hills, California and have lived in New York, New Jersey, and North Carolina before returning to Texas after a 25-year absence. These experiences plus my travels and education help me relate to the concerns of a wide variety of Buyers and Sellers. I consider the Austin area an excellent place to reside and would love to share with you my enthusiasm for the many neighborhoods that encompass it. I pride myself on providing unparalleled service and look forward to developing a long-term relationship with you. Please feel free to contact me if you would like to discuss how I can best assist you with your real estate needs.

I have lived in the Austin area most of my life, and have observed how much the Central Texas area has changed. The Austin economy is booming with many job opportunities and beautiful surroundings. It is obvious why people want to live and work here.

I am a full-time realtor and have been in the real estate business since June 1999. I pride myself as a hard worker for my clients, whether buyers, sellers, tenants or investors, and consider myself a great negotiator. Being a member of Austin Board of Realtors, Texas Association of Realtors and National Association of Realtors, I keep current on the latest changes, news and developments.

There are many mortgage sources available to me who can assist buyers for pre-approval financing. When I began working with a client, I provide them with a packet of information to guide them throughout the entire process.

My clients are very important to me and I always place their interests first.

I would welcome the opportunity to work for you to make your real estate transition as smooth as possible.
