About me and my background
I grew up in Littleton, Colorado and absolutely love this state! I graduated from Columbine High School and Metropolitan State University. While in college, I studied journalism and technical communication. I had lofty dreams of working in the media as a producer/director. I graduated in 2009 and the job market was very poor and I caught the real estate bug and started pursuing my real estate license. People kept telling me how hard it was going to be to succeed and that it was not smart to get into the industry but I didn't listen, I immediately knew that this was going to be the career for me! I quickly became passionate about helping people with their real estate needs and guiding them through the process. With my style and work ethic and I realized that I could make a great career out of doing something that I love. It’s not just a job for me now, I’ve learned how to truly run a business. It’s something that I really enjoy doing because I get to help people achieve their goals of home ownership and investing into their future!
About my business and my Tag line Mile High Standards in Real Estate
I have acheived levels I never thought possible when I was starting this journey. I am now in the top 3% of agents in the state and the top producing agent in my company! I am confident in my abilities and feel like I can serve any buyer or seller, in any situation, with top notch skills and communication.
I truly value customer service. It is important in all careers to value people, but especially in real estate. I appreciate my clients and actually love what I do for a living. Some agents are just in it for the money and checks, but they will not be successful in this business. I really enjoy the feeling I get when I make a client happy and get them the home of their dreams! I like helping educate people and teaching them why real estate is the best investment they can make. I want my clients to know that I have their best interests at heart. I’m always working and always available for them.
Mile High Standards in Real Estate is my tagline. I ensure I will hold myself, my team, and anyone else I deal with, to the highest possible standards on behalf my clients. The Mission statement is to ensure top-notch customer service and satisfaction by creating smooth deals, through communication and advanced skills.
Here are a few of the reviews I’ve received:
-Austen provided us excellent service and professionalism throughout the sale of our home. Austen was sincere and helpful from beginning to end. He was flexible with timings when we requested him to be available for every showing since our home had many special features. I would without hesitation recommend to family and friends. I would like to extend a special Thank You to Austen.
-Austen was extremely helpful in selling our home. He helped us establish a selling price that garnered a lot of interest the minute our house hit the market. Because of his expertise, my family did not spend a lot of time in our home the weekend our house went on the market. The foot traffic he helped generate brought multiple offers on our home all of which exceeded our expectations. When we finally sold our home we were surprised at what we walked away with, but Austen was not. Austen is an agent who really knows what he is doing and if you listen to his advice you will not be disappointed.
-Austen was great to work with in the purchase of our first home. He was very responsive and helpful throughout the process. I'd absolutely recommend Austen to anyone looking to buy or sell! -Austen is fantastic! He helped us sell our home and buy our new home. He is honest, hard working and very responsive. I'd absolutely recommend to anyone that they use Austen to help them buy or sell their home.
When I was new to real estate and young, I really needed some help. Unfortunately, my mentors did next to nothing to help me. They liked collecting their part of the commission checks I was earning, but that’s about it. I promised myself that if I ever found myself in a similar role, that I would be different!! I am honored that Colorado Home Finder values my expertise and has put me in a position to help others. I have a few mentees now that have reminded me what it is like to be in new in the business. It is HARD!! For my team and mentees, I fully intend on making them successful agents and will do whatever it takes. I will help them with our system and increase their conversion rate on the CHFR leads. But that is just one platform, I will also help them work their sphere of influence, get referrals, and execute marketing on a small budget. Most importantly, I will help them go from good conversations and leads, to appointments, to closings! I am happy to go with them on appointments/showings, or take them with on mine. I will also help them with negotiations on deals. I am open to helping with whatever comes up and whatever they ask of me.
