Hello! I'm excited to work with you! Here's a little information about me:
I was born and raised in a small, Texas town. As a child, I spent most of the day playing outdoors with a surprising number of pets and enjoying nature. That time outside lead me to Texas A&M University where I received a B.S. in Biology and Environmental Science. After graduation, I relocated to Austin to enjoy the parks, culinary arts and festivals. I worked as a project manager in the environmental clean-up field until I had children. I began taking real estate courses when my youngest daughter started pre-school and became a REALTOR in 2017. I became a REALTOR because I love helping people.
When I'm not working, I'm spending time with my husband, two daughters and a surprising number of pets! If we're not at a birthday party or soccer match, we are around the fire pit roasting marshmallows or riding bikes around the neighborhood. We are regulars at Michaels for crafting and Whole Foods for quick dinners. On date nights, we love trying new restaurants and going to the movies. We attend the Austin Food and Wine Festival every year. Every Sunday my husband BBQs and watches football, Nascar and F1. Most recently, we attended the F1 race at the Circuit of the Americas and had front row seats to the Imagine Dragons concert!
As a resident of Austin for over 20 years, I would love to show you around the city. I provide a high level of personal service to my clients which is one of the reasons I'm a TOP producing agent. I've helped my clients buy/sell their 1st home, purchase luxury homes, families with children, relocations, and retirees find lake homes. I understand the different housing needs of each life stage and I'm excited to help you.
I look forward to meeting you and assisting you with your real estate needs.
Working with Desiree was so easy! She got to know my needs, pointed me in the right direction, and was quick to answer my questions. She managed the whole process, keeping the various players on time and on track, and kept the stress shoulders. Highly recommend. – Blue Bivalve
Desiree was wonderful. She chased down all of the various players and made sure they got their parts done. – Laurie Trindle
Desiree was wonderful to work with. She really took the time to understand what I was looking for and was a great partner in sorting through the options. We found a place that I absolutely love and she made the process easy and fun. – Carla Romaine
Desiree was patient, relentless, and courteous throughout a very difficult apartment hunt. I would call her again for any realty needs before doing anything else. – Brandon Forster
Desiree was extremely available and attentive throughout the process of finding the perfect rental home. Because of her professionalism and optimism, we were able to overcome several bumps in the road (out of our control) and find the right house for us. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking to lease or own a property in the area. – Nicole Norton
Desiree Owens did a terrific job listing our rent house! We had interested tenants the first day the posting was live - can’t beat that!! – Elizabeth P.
Desiree Owens helped us find the most perfect house. My husband and I moved from out of state and had very little clue about Austin real estate—the processes, the rules, the market, the neighborhoods, etc. and Desiree helped us with all of that. Literally start to finish. From finding us the perfect house I’d never even seen a listing for, to negotiating a fair price for the property, to dealing with the builders and asking all the tough questions on our behalf, to always checking in with us and helping momentum when our close dates were pushed further and further back, etc....to allllllllll the way to move-in day when she brought us lunch. She really thought of everything. We knew we wanted a new build but didn’t realize the process it takes to find one (Desiree drove with me from lot to lot, cold-calling builders until she found us the perfect fit). To me, that was the most helpful because I felt like I had seen every house for sale in Austin and nothing felt quite right. Desiree quickly understood exactly what we were looking for, showed us the best house I could have imagined and from there the process was streamlined and easy (for us, not her at all, I’m sure!) Clearly she did a lot of behind-the-scenes calls/emails/meetings during the time it took to close on the house, but her ability to clue into exactly what we were looking for is what stood out to me the most. Desiree is an excellent agent. We quickly recommended her to our friends who were moving to Leander from out of state. I would recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell. Five + stars. – Haley McDonough
Desiree was amazing! Knowledgeable, always ready to help, and took great care of us. She represented both the sale of our old place and purchase of our new place. We liked her immediately because she didn't come across as the stereotypical real estate agent. She's genuine. – David Schnepp
