Company Expands its Footprint in Central Texas
AUSTIN, TX – Realty Austin, the #1 independent residential real estate firm in Austin, just opened a new location in the city of Round Rock, right outside the thriving Teravista community at the corner of University Boulevard and Sunrise Road. With company sales already exceeding $250 million per year in Round Rock, and a #2 market share position, Realty Austin is already firmly positioned in the community.
Yvette Boatwright, co-owner of Realty Austin said, “Because of our talented agents and powerful online presence, we have been experiencing steady growth in Round Rock for several years. The strength of our brand and technology is synonymous with Austin’s unique homegrown culture and we are excited to bring it to Round Rock.”
Romeo Manzanilla, who was promoted in 2012 to lead the Northwest Market Center from the Avery Ranch office, will also lead the newly established Round Rock office. Manzanilla was instrumental in attracting some top producing agents to establish a strong footing in the Round Rock community.
Some of the talented agents who aligned with the new office include the #1 top producer in Round Rock, Jason Taylor, and the #3 individual producer, Chris Tinnell. Taylor and Tinnell are joined by fellow Round Rock area agents Trish Black, Les Hanvey, Phil Nassaux, Dayla Rush, Rhonda Gehrke, Reese Phillips, David Ristine, Phil Hutson, Rachael Roumaya and Teresa “T” Trevino.
Manzanilla said, “Our primary goal in choosing a Teravista location was to expand our capabilities for our rockstar agents and their clients in Round Rock. The growth in Williamson County has been nationally recognized, and Realty Austin offers real advantages to its customers because of our strong culture, professional agents, collaborative environment, systems of support, and the #1 home search website realtyaustin.com.”
Since 2006 Manzanilla has been a top producing REALTOR® and earned his SFR, CDRS, ASP and Broker designations. He brings experience and a strong commitment to the managerial role, in addition to a Bachelor’s of Science in Business from the University of Southern California and a Master’s of Business Administration from Regis University. Manzanilla’s leadership experience began in the United States Navy where he served as a Naval Aviator. His leadership training and skills continued with his career as an Operations Manager for Dell Inc.
The office will be supported by office manager Leslie DeJesso who is transferring from the company’s recently opened East Austin location.
The new Round Rock location expands Realty Austin’s footprint in Central Texas, adding to its existing locations in Downtown Austin, Westlake, Lake Travis, East, Southwest and Northwest Austin. Since its inception in 2004, the company has grown to a team of 350 agents and 25 support staff.
The company’s workspaces are well-located in Class A retail space. True to its homegrown roots, Realty Austin sourced to local companies to continue its fresh office design. Kelle Contine Interior Design and Michael Schembri’s Artwork is featured in all new and existing offices.
To mark the grand opening of Realty Austin Round Rock, the company held a ribbon cutting and open house event for industry partners and local agents.
Realty Austin Round Rock is located at 455 University Avenue, Suite 700, Round Rock, Texas 78665.
