How long have you been in Austin?
I moved from Minnesota to Austin six years ago to be closer to family and warmer weather. My sister built her home with Grand Haven Homes (now Brookfield Residential) about eight years ago when I was working in the same industry, and she asked for my advice on a few things. I did a lot of research on the company and ended up staying with my sister in her home and loved it.
What do you love most about living here?
The warm weather, live music, the Hill Country and the lake – I’m on the lake at least once a week if the weather is over 70 degrees. Not to mention the people in Austin are genuine, cool and friendly. I’ve made so many friends and met so many awesome people. My buyers are my community.
What’s a fun or interesting fact about you that people may not know?
I was born on 6/6/66 and raised on a farm in Northern Minnesota, three hours south of the Canadian border. Now I live three hours from the border of Mexico!
What is your favorite part about the Rough Hollow community?
The fact that it’s a resort-style community and so close to the lake. It’s like a staycation when you get here – there’s a lazy river, multiple pools, 21 miles of hiking and biking trails and four wineries within five miles.
What do you love most about working for Brookfield Residential?
Definitely the people I work with and the culture of the company. Even though it’s a large company, it feels small and that’s what I love so much. The people I work with on my team are top notch.
