You ARE my Realtor for life! Carrie came to my rescue, when as a consultant, I was working with executives transplanting their headquarters and families to Austin. She not only demonstrated her breadth of knowledge by touring these folks through a wide range of neighborhoods, but showed her versatility in working with many different personalities by subsequently finding the perfect homes for this diverse group. When it was time for me to find a new house, I knew exactly who to call! Carrie i
