AUSTIN, Texas, Jan. 24, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Realty Austin, Austin's no.1 top workplace, is proud to announce Cara Keenan will oversee its Westlake Market Center upon its opening in Davenport Village. A licensed REALTOR® with 14 years experience, Keenan joined Realty Austin in January of 2010 where she has been a top producer year over year. As team leader, her business steadily increased from $5M in 2010 to $15M in 2013.
Jonathan Boatwright, co-owner of Realty Austin said, "We look forward to providing excellence to our clients in the Westlake area at our state-of-the-art market center. Cara's passion for mentoring, training and business development will be a tremendous asset to the new Westlake team, and enable the next generation of Realty Austin to be the luxury market leader."

Keenan said, "Finding leadership like the Boatwrights is akin to striking gold, as they mobilize us to be superior professionals and contributors to the community. Working with a brokerage who embraces technology, innovates constantly, adopts new practices and tools, values relationships, and contributes to the advancement of our industry and the community are inspiring. The opportunity to lead the new Westlake market center is a perfect next move for me to share my knowledge and play a vital role in something larger."
Boatwright said, "Cara is a natural-born leader and a perfect fit for the market manager role. I am excited to integrate her into the mix of our strong management team. Historically, Cara has been our biggest recruiter and responsible for persuading eight great agents to join our team, and her recruits produced over $62M in sales in 2013. She is excited to teach others the skills she has acquired over the last 14 years in our industry, and to motivate her team to achieve their full potential."

The fact our company has upheld its unique culture and giving back mission while experiencing such rapid growth, is revolutionary. With certainty I can say, there isn't another brokerage like Realty Austin.
