Doreen Zelma, RealtorAbout Doreen Zelma, REALTOR(R) , CLRA, GRI

Having lived in Austin for over 15 years, I know and love this city and its unique neighborhoods.  I think the best thing about Austin is that there is truly a neighborhood for everyone. I am known as the ‘house matchmaker’.   I enjoy assisting my clients to find the right home for their needs and lifestyle.

I am an Austin Real Estate property expert.

I make it a continued goal to know Austin as it grows so that clients can benefit from my knowledge.  I make sure to tour properties every week, to keep myself educated on new inventory and market conditions.  I make it a point to stay on top of future development and city planning.

I am committed to my clients.

Whether searching for a single-family home in a suburban neighborhood, a condominium on Lady Bird Lake, or an investment property, I am qualified to help you.  From the start, I seek to save my clients time and energy by previewing relevant properties, coordinating pre-sale preparations, and leveraging technology to their advantage.

I also proactively manage, negotiate and direct every aspect of their transaction and always act on behalf of their best interest. My goal is to gain a client for life, and therefore I take the long view as to how to be most effective as your Realtor®.  As a result, I have happy clients and most of my business is referrals from past clients, sometimes generations deep.

I have extensive marketing and real estate experience.

I have a Bachelor of Arts and many years of entrepreneurial business experience.  Prior to real estate, I was the marketing director for a global distribution and manufacturing company.  For 20 years, I was responsible for all aspects of marketing, branding, and product development.  As a result, I have a strong background in data analysis and inventory – both have proven to be invaluable contributions to my real estate career.

My 20 years of real estate experience include residential and investment properties, first-time home buyers, and custom home building.  These diverse opportunities have prepared me to be better informed through experience, which allows me to provide greater service to my clients.

I support local Austin, after all, I think it’s only neighborly.

I welcome you to my website and look forward to helping with your real estate needs.
