Mary Margaret George

Realtor®

512.589.9508 | marymargaret@givingplr.com


Making good choices when buying or selling a home is my goal for my clients. There are many components that go into the process, and I work hard to make sure that I am up to date in every way. I have lived in Austin since I came to UT from El Paso in the 60’s. Since then, I have been involved in many community organizations: The March of Dimes, Hospice Austin, the Junior League, Helping Hand Home for Children, and the PTA’s at St. Andrews, Casis, Martin, O’Henry, and Austin High. The friends and contact I made in these organizations have helped me to keep current on the different Austin neighborhoods. I keep myself current on what is happening in several neighborhoods, so that when I work with buyers, can show them all of the neighborhoods that they are interested in with houses in their price range and that meet their criteria. Once they have chosen an area to concentrate on, we look at the houses currently for sale as well has those under contact and recently sold. I want each of them to feel like they have found the best house at the best price possible at closing! With sellers, we begin by looking at the data. Going over the houses on the market, pending sales, and recently solds indicate what buyers are willing to pay in the current market, and are crucial in determining what price to ask. The next step is looking at the “staging” of the house. “Making a home for your family” and “selling a house” are two very different things! I can explain this to you in detail when we meet. I have hired professional stagers, and I have taken classes on “staging” because I believe this process is very, very important to a quick sale. Marketing, advertising, contract knowledge, negotiation skills, attention to detail, honesty, and integrity are some of the other things I bring to the table. I love to be busy, and I would love to be busy helping you! Please call me for your Real Estate needs.
