Terri Romere

Terri RomereTerri Romere
Keller Williams Realty

Terri Romere, Broker Associate with Romere Real Estate, LLC @ Keller Williams Realty–RRMC, has been a top-producing real estate broker agent in the Austin/Round Rock/Cedar Park areas for the past ten years. Prior to her real estate career, she worked in many different areas of the health care industry. Starting with a job as a medical assistant when she was a college student, her hands-on experience resulted in her becoming an award-winning administrator for a national home health and supplemental nursing agency by the age of 25. Married to her college sweetheart for 23 years, she decided to take a hiatus from the corporate world and raise their children, Meghan and Matthew. In the first seven years of their marriage they move 7 times in 9 years to four different states due to her husband’s career. Needless to say, Terri became a master of “THE MOVE”! She believes this real life experience is what led her into her very successful real estate career. With her experience as a professional speaker/trainer, sales and marketing expert—she educates and executes successful marketing plans consistently delivering successful closings and many happy clients. Terri takes great pride in how well she cares and guides her clients in their biggest investments—their homes.



Tausha Carlson

Tausha CarlsonTausha Carlson
Marathon Real Estate
Tausha@TaushaCarlson.com

 

 

 

Tausha Carlson embodies the best of Austin entrepreneurship. She strives to be an inspiration to others and is fueled not by a desire for great success, but by a desire to do good works. As she says, “I felt pretty fearless when I started Marathon Real Estate. It gave me the opportunity to harness my passion, have more freedom and tackle new challenges. I wanted to position myself so that my actions aligned with my philosophy for living. Most importantly, I wanted to be in the best possible position to make a positive and lasting impact on the world.” Tausha discovered her passion for real estate in 2003 when she purchased her first homestead, fixed it up, and sold it two short years later for a tidy, tax-free profit. Since then, she has “flipped” homes, served as a general contractor, and invested in several rental properties. Finding her passion for real estate drove Tausha to become a licensed real estate broker and to launch Marathon Real Estate. Additionally, she has earned multiple industry certifications, including recognition as a Certified Negotiation Expert and certification as a Luxury Home Marketing Specialist. She has obtained the National Association of Realtors Green Designation and is a Certified Residential Specialist. Tausha’s breadth of experience and expert knowledge of the real estate field enables her to provide astute assessments of her clients’ real estate needs, creating a remarkable upside in the client experience. She talks her clients through each step of the process, asks them about their hopes and concerns, and develops a deep understanding of their needs. She’s even been known to crawl under a house simply to get that extra bit of information needed for a client. Not content to be a client’s one-time real estate agent, Tausha strives to be a life-long real estate advisor. She explains, “My services don’t end with the transaction. I stay in touch with my clients, and I am a resource for them. I’ve helped past real estate clients with everything from fighting property tax assessments to finding great contractors and navigating the City of Austin permitting process.” Endeavoring to build a strong relationship with each and every client positions Tausha to do the best possible job during the real estate transaction and makes her a go-to resource long after the transaction is complete. Tausha also helps people gain a better understanding of the real estate transaction process through formal education. She teaches several courses in the University of Texas Informal Class Program. Her current course offerings include: Selling Your House in Today’s Market to Maximize Price & Minimize Time; Investing in Your Homestead/Home Buying; and, Austin Real Estate – An Alternative Investment. A native Texan, Tausha graduated from Texas A&M University with a Bachelor of Science degree and earned a Master of Science degree from Michigan State University. She enjoys spending time with her husband, Chris, and doting on their two children, Kennedy and Cade. Nelly, their black lab rescue mutt, also gets her fair share of attention. Tausha is a 13-time marathon runner (with a 3:09:29 PR), loves the outdoors and treasures a good book. She is very involved in supporting the community, and her many charitable activities include regular efforts to raise money for the battle against breast cancer and aiding Austin’s homeless. Tausha is a member of the Real Estate Council of Austin (RECA), and has served on its Board since 2010. She supports Impact Austin, is a member of the Greater Austin Chamber of Commerce, the ATX Powergroup, and avidly attends two community book clubs. She has been recognized for both her professional accomplishments and her philanthropic work. She graduated from the Foundation for Women’s Resources Power Pipeline Program, an elite leadership development program for women of Texas, and was a Women’s Chamber of Commerce of Texas Blazing Star Award finalist in 2007. In 2009 she was named to the Leadership Development Council (LDC) by the RECA, and served on the Steering Committee for the 2010 LDC Class. Tausha was recognized by the Austin Business Journal as one of the top five producing real estate agents in the Austin-metro area in 2008 and 2009, and she was a Platinum Top 50 Realtor in 2013. The Young Women’s Alliance and the Young Men’s Business League honored her with a 2009 Austin Under 40 Award, acknowledging her professional contributions to the field of real estate, as well as her fundraising efforts for breast cancer research and awareness programs. Tausha is a member of Leadership Austin’s 2011 Essential Class.

Sellers is a fourth generation Texan born and raised in Round Rock. He only left the Austin area for a short while to study real estate and earn a B.A. in Sociology from the University of North Texas. Sellers was so awe struck by real estate while studying it at UNT that he quickly got his license and started selling real estate before graduating. He knew real estate was what he wanted to do for the rest of his life. Sellers has enjoyed continued success specifically in the residential foreclosure listing market over the past several years. As broker/owner of Texas Property Shop, Sellers and his team of experts sold 408 properties ($38.4 million) across Texas in 2012. Although his focus has been on listing foreclosed properties for banks such as Bank of America, Wells Fargo, Chase, Fannie Mae, United States Housing & Urban Development, the U.S. Marshalls, and many more, he has always been dedicated to providing the best tools for his agents to succeed as well as engaging institutional buyers. In 2013, Sellers sold a total of 432 homes with 171 of these sold on the buyer’s side to institutional investors. Chad is a Certified Distressed Property Expert (CDPE), member of The Federation of REO Certified Experts (FORCE), Five Star Institute REO Certified, Equator Platinum REO & Short Sale Certified, member of the National Association of Real Estate Professionals, Texas Association of Real Estate Professionals, Williamson County Board of Real Estate Professionals, San Antonio Board of Real Estate Professionals, Houston Association of Real Estate Professionals, Central Texas Area Board of Real Estate Professionals, Corpus Christi Association of Real Estate Professionals, and the Temple/Belton Board of Real Estate Professionals.

In addition to being the broker/owner of Texas Property Shop, Sellers is also the founder of real estate franchise and software innovation company, Realty Force International, broker/owner of Realty Force Round Rock, and owner of Ranger REO.

RYAN RODENBECK

Ryan RodenbeckRyan Rodenbeck
Spyglass Realty

Ryan started in Austin real estate as an investor in 2001. He looked at all investment opportunities — Austin foreclosures, condos, homes for sale. After buying and selling houses for a few years, he felt like he knew more than most investment agents holding themselves out as “experts”and decided to get his real estate license. He started his first Austin real estate brokerage in 2005, Elite Team Realty. In addition to Austin foreclosures, the team excelled at maximizing other investment opportunities for clients and took on property management as well. Elite Team Realty completed over a hundred million in real estate deals from January 2005 until September 2007. Their focus was residential investment property and foreclosures. Ryan turned his talents to estimating renovation costs. His contracting business completed renovations on Austin foreclosures and make-readies for vacant property. After working with dozens of buyers on foreclosure property, Ryan became a listing agent for many national banks, of which he still contracts for today. In July of 2008, Ryan started Spyglass Realty and Investments. This time around, the focus was on residential real estate in the areas that he had a passion for, including Travis Country, 78704, Travis Heights, and downtown Austin. Anything with a modern Austin vibe was attractive. He began hands on training by the most recognized real estate training facilities he could find on how to increase exposure and market properties properly. He also used his experience in renovating properties to help his clients make the proper upgrades that will ensure top dollar.
