Austin was raised in Nevada City on Banner Mountain. As a five year old, young Austin watched in amazement as his family transformed their new, raw land with thick woods and tall cedars, into a beautiful home. He discovered an appreciation for Real Estate at an early age as he watched all the hard work that goes into building a single home.

After graduating through the local school system of Nevada City Elementary, Deer Creek, Seven Hills and finally Nevada Union in 2003, he left his familiar hometown to venture into college. Austin received his MBA from Azusa Pacific University in July, 2010 and was married to his beautiful wife, Shannon, just two months later. After a brief period of working as a full-time leasing consultant to support Shannon’s desire of Music in Nashville Tennessee, the newlyweds moved back to California to be near family. Returning to Nevada City, Austin accepted a Solar Tech Engineer position with SolarEdge Technologies. After the company moved out of town, Austin decided it was time to shift careers back to his passion for Real Estate and stay in his hometown of Nevada City.

Austin is an advocate for financial freedom. One of those cornerstones is owning one’s home, an accomplishment the young couple achieved in January, 2018. With his MBA background and an elevated interest in business, Austin has dedicated himself to finding the best home for his clients ensuring their new home is a blessing and not a curse. “I want to help others discover the reality of their dream home in a financially sound way that honors being good stewards of God’s money.”

Austin can be seen volunteering at the Future Farmers of America (FFA) and Student Excellence in Education Development (SEED) booth at our award winning Nevada County Fair Grounds for Nevada Union and Bear River High Schools. Austin loves jumping into his favorite swimming hole at the Yuba River, hiking the Independence and Buttermilk trails, tossing Disc Golf at Condon Park and praising God Sunday mornings at Twin Cities Church in Grass Valley.

Austin is dedicated to becoming the best Realtor he can be in the Real Estate industry through continued education in multiple training classes at Network Real Estate in Grass Valley. As a member of the NCAOR, CAR and NAR he prides himself on having the highest level of professionalism and excellence as a Realtor.
