Shannon Thiessen Schmitz is a graduate from the University of Alberta. After a successful Medical Sales career she decided to change courses and entered the world of Real Estate in 2000. Shannon knows Austin and she knows the market. With integrity and honesty at the top of her list, as well as building lasting relationships, she will help you with all of your Real Estate needs.
Shannon is one of Austin’s top Luxury Agents and has achieved a reputation for providing quality Real Estate service based on integrity, knowledge and professionalism. Shannon believes that “Luxury is not defined by price, but rather the quality of the service provided” and is continually challenged to stay as knowledgeable as possible in all aspects of this ever changing real estate market. With 90% of her business coming from past clients and referrals, building lasting relationships is a number one priority.
Shannon is a member of Who’s Who in Luxury Real Estate and The Board of Regents. She is a Certified Luxury Home Marketing Specialist and has earned the CLHMS designation. She is also a member of the Million Dollar Guild. In 2010 was inducted into Austin’s Elite 25 Organization. This impressive group of real estate professionals represents the top 1% of all Austin realtors. In 2011 Shannon received the Platinum Top 50 award. Out of 8500 Realtors she was nominated not only for her impressive sales volume and education but also for her civic leadership. Over the past few years she has been involved with raising money for the Austin Children’s Shelter and this year, surpassed their goal. Shannon also undertook an arduous 60 Mile Walk raising money for Susan G Komen Foundation in honor of one of her clients who was diagnosed with Breast Cancer at 39 years of age. Giving back is a value she believes in.
With only twelve years in the industry as a Realtor, Shannon has exceeded her clients’ expectations. Being top in your field is not always about awards and achievements, but knowing your business and keeping up with market trends and statistics. It is about knowing what is on the market, even before it is actively marketed. It is about understanding your client’s needs and expectations and being able to deliver. It is about truly caring!
Shannon knows Austin and specializes in sales and marketing of the finest waterfront and luxury estate homes, premier golf course communities, Central Austin, Downtown loft living and Lake Travis retreats. No job is too small and no task is unattainable. Even during this economic time where others have stalled, Shannon continues to get results. She believes that in real estate she must do the extraordinary to set herself apart and get the job done.
