Agent Profile

I am a native Texan and my real estate career began over 40 years ago.  Real estate has proven to be not only very rewarding, it has afforded me the opportunity of meeting some fabulous people along the way who have become lifelong friends.  I mix my experience and knowledge of the market with my ability to listen to the needs and desires of my clients. Whether it is the new home market, helping my clients through the building process or finding just the right existing home to fit your needs and desires, I would love to help make your dreams come true.

My career is real estate but I have to admit my true passion is travel and meeting people from all walks of life and learning about their countries and customs.  I am a Christian with strong moral values and strive to approach life with a positive attitude every day.  Family and friends are very important to me and I have had the same group of friends from the 1st grade and we still get together once a year to laugh and revert back to our childhood days. 

Mission Statement: To provide the absolute highest quality of professionalism to my clients so that they make the best real estate decisions possible. I combine market knowledge, integrity and fun in the process of moving my clients toward their desired future.

Client Testimonials

“Carra helped me sell a house a few years ago, and also recently buy the condo I live in downtown . She made sure both experiences went smoothly, with minimal drama. I really appreciated Carra’s service and expertise, and I never felt she was pushing me into a decision (like I had experienced with another realtor for a previous transaction.) She’s also just easy and fun to work with. Great personality. She’s also well connected and shared a bunch of helpful contacts for some remodeling work I needed to get done (painting, decorating, etc.) I’d definitely recommend Carra if you need a realtor in Austin.”
- Leslie Hargenrader
“In addition to being a good friend, Carra is truly an exceptional realtor! We’ve worked together on both buying and selling and she has always done a great job. She is a stickler for keeping her clients informed. She has worked with me on four transactions and we couldn’t have been happier. Thanks, Carra!”
- Credia Glenn

- Eric and Jennifer Hegwer
“Fantastic service especially given our situation. Only in town briefly to look and out of country during closing. Carra helped make purchasing our first home smooth and easy!!!”
