AUSTIN, TX — Realty Austin, the #1 independent real estate brokerage in Central Texas, is proud to announce Jonathan and Yvette Boatwright were named in Swanepoel Power 200’s list of The Most Powerful People in The Residential Real Estate Brokerage Industry in 2021. The annual Rankings, the Power 200, ranks the most influential leaders in the industry based on their decision-making power and influence in The Real Estate Almanac produced by T3 Sixty and CEO Stefan Swanepoel.
In 2004, the Boatwrights founded Realty Austin and grew their business from one 1,800 square foot office to three award-winning innovative and modern workspaces staffed with 570+ full-time rockstar agents. Through the struggles of the pandemic, the involved co-owners made it their mission to keep the spirits of their staff and agents lifted while working quickly to adapt to the needs of the industry safely. In 2020, Realty Austin was awarded both No. 1 Top Workplace by the Austin American Statesman and No. 3 Best Place to Work by the Austin Business Journal, making it the 9th year in a row the company has been named on both lists.
As industry leaders in the nation’s hottest real estate market, the Boatwrights are also recognized for their continued innovation and growth within the real estate industry. In 2020, the company launched the new RealtyAustin.com, providing the most advanced and localized home search experience in Central Texas. They have also teamed up with the groundbreaking company, Homeward, to give home buyers and sellers non-traditional options to complete their real estate transactions.
As one of the foremost philanthropic companies in the real estate industry, The Boatwrights have inspired a culture at Realty Austin where the agents and employees have pledged to support local partners that provide safe, affordable housing as part of the company We’re For Here movement. Together, agents and employees have volunteered over 20,100 hours, donated over $1,700,000 of their commission from transactions, and raised over $175,000 from industry partners to support their philanthropic community partnerships.
