REALTY AUSTIN: HOMEGROWN AND ROOTED IN AUSTIN FOR 15 YEARS

Image of Jonathan and Yvette Boatwright15 years ago, the concept of Realty Austin was born on the back of a cocktail napkin by co-founders, Jonathan and Yvette Boatwright. Once a dream, soon became a reality in September of 2004 as the husband and wife duo, also known as the brains and heart, founded Austin’s #1 independent and fastest-growing real estate brokerage with over $2.85 billion in sales, Realty Austin.

Leading the industry with cutting edge technology, world-class marketing and unrivaled support, Realty Austin’s singular focus on empowering agents to become the best they can be has propelled the company to the number #1 spot in market share, 7 years on Austin’s “Best Places to Work” lists and garnered the most productive agents by sales across all of Austin.

“When you have something special to share, you want to share it with a lot of people,” said Yvette Boatwright.

Also known as the brokerage’s Culture Queen, Yvette has fostered a unique and special dynamic at the company. Coining their mantra as ‘Work hard, play hard and give back,’ Realty Austin agents, staff and leadership live up to this pledge by committing to innovate, collaborate, volunteer and of course, live life to its fullest.

“Our agents and staff love their communities and want to uplift our neighbors in need. We give back to affordable housing pioneers who roll up their sleeves and dig in to solve problems within our communities,” said Yvette Boatwright.
