A native Texan and long-time Austin resident, Charlotte Lipscomb has achieved a tremendous history of success selling Austin luxury real estate since 1984. She has many interests, but real estate is her passion. Charlotte has been a respected top producer in the Austin marketplace for many years as a 26+ year shareholder/co-owner with the luxury boutique firm, AvenueOne Properties, until the sale of that company a few years ago, after which Charlotte was instrumental in the launch and opening of the Austin Portfolio Real Estate office, the luxury boutique arm of the international, mega company of Keller Williams Realty. The Austin Portfolio Real Estate office’s unparalleled success laid the ground work and created the business model that has resulted in the opening of many other Portfolio Real Estate offices throughout the country.
Austin’s Elite25 is composed of the Austin agents that close the majority of the high-end luxury sales in the Austin marketplace, and Charlotte Austin’s Elite25, having qualified and been selected a member for 21 consecutive years. Representing both Buyers and Sellers, she brings a unique expertise, energy, and enthusiasm to each transaction, and as a result, she has facilitated an amazing number of public and private, high profile sales with confidentiality a top priority. Relationships are the backbone of her success and Charlotte honors those relationships with the utmost respect.
Charlotte is extremely well connected in the Austin social and business communities and has a long history of philanthropic involvement with many organizations such as The Junior League of Austin, Women’s Symphony League of Austin, Ballet Austin Guild Life Member, Heritage Society of Austin, Austin Junior Forum, Austin Natural Science Association Guild, Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center, Women’s Art Guild, Umlauf Sculpture Gardens, Eanes ISD Parent Organization, Eanes Education Foundation, Power of the Purse, and many more. As a result of her many years of volunteerism, she has been honored as Volunteer of the Year by the Austin Board of Realtors. Charlotte broad knowledge and willingness to share her expertise is respected by many as she was chosen to consult with the General Land Office and the State of Texas on the sale of the Pease Mansion and the Texas State Preservation Board on the restoration of the General Land Office building on the grounds of the State Capitol.
Charlotte is held in very high regard within the Austin real estate community, well known for her professionalism, expertise, and broad knowledge in the luxury market, and as a result, more than half of her business is transacted off of the MLS as non-public sales. She places tremendous value on her excellent working relationships with other agents, and the Buyers and Sellers she represents benefit directly from those relationships. When a legendary property comes available, she knows who to call as that is the perfect Buyer, or when the right property doesn’t seem to materialize for a Buyer, she always manages access to a variety of exquisite properties that are not actively on the market or in MLS, effectively pulling another “rabbit out of the hat” for her clients. Review her testimonials and list of references and you will connect with countless people whose successful transactions represent a variety of price ranges and properties with one common, consistent aspect: Charlotte Lipscomb.
