I grew up in Dallas. Due to my husband’s job, we relocated to Houston, Victoria, Pennsylvania, and Maine before moving to the Austin area in 1987. I understand the challenges of moving your family whether it is across town or across many miles. I know the concerns of finding the right place and good schools for your children. My experiences have prepared me to be able to understand the challenges involved in finding the right home and to assist you through the process.
I have been a realtor since 1992. I have an extensive background in leasing and sales. I have been a consultant to buyers, sellers, owners, and tenants. I have leased and sold homes from Georgetown to Kyle; from Hutto to Leander. I am knowledgeable of Austin and all the surrounding areas.
I have worked for several real estate companies. When I was told that JB Goodwin’s number one goal is to “Help People”, I knew I was home. I get great satisfaction in helping people achieve their goal of finding a home that best meets their needs.

Marlene was AMAZING! We worked with Marlene when looking for a rental in the Round Rock area. Our area is so competitive and often times if you don't act within a blink of an eye a property is already gone. We were in a bit of a time crunch and Marlene was so great with us. She was quick and efficient and despite the rentals owners being out of town, she was able to get contracts signed and keys handed over by the end of the week. She made everything so easy! I can not thank/praise her enough. – Meg Oliveira
