I am a KW Realtor who can guide you whether you're upsizing or downsizing in or around Austin! With a wealth of helpful and timely information to share, I have Keller William’s expertise behind me.
Hard work and challenges don't scare me; I am energetic, well connected and not afraid to ask the hard questions. Tired of paying high bills to maintain your empty nest? Want more free time to do what you really want? Looking for a place you can lock up and leave to get out of the summer heat?
Call ME and let’s get started!
I was born and raised in Seattle, Washington, and left there when I married Bob Romano in 1983. Our adventures have taken us all over the world, thanks to Big Blue. We've lived in Portland, OR., Boca Raton, FL. (where Joe and Tommy were born), The French Riviera, and then our final stop, in 1991, to Austin, TX. (where Mary Claire was born).
I've worn many hats in my 60 years, and have enjoyed them all. I started using my degree in Hotel Restaurant Administration working for the Red Robin Corporation and then for Westin Hotels. I grew weary of nights and weekends and decided to use my sales skills in the Financial Industry, where I became a Stockbroker for Foster and Marshall, in Portland, OR. When IBM moved us, I was able to keep my clients but gained new ones in Boca Raton. We survived 6 years and two hurricanes there and couldn't say yes (oui?) fast enough when Bob was offered a job in France, at the IBM La Gaude plant. Two years flew by and we hated to leave, but the assignment ended and it was Austin or Detroit. We chose Austin.
That was in 1991 and what we thought would be a typical two year assignment evolved into twenty-seven years and holding strong! We discovered what a wonderful place Austin is to raise our children and enjoy the many, many amenities and activities here.
I had a few odd jobs when the kids became more independent, like selling promotional products, and even wrote a book about Internet dating for older women. (www.cathyromano.com)
In February 2016, I joined Keller Williams and not only love my new career, but love the support, care and education KW offers. But mostly, I love the chance to make someone happy when they move in, or out (or both) of a home!
In my free time I enjoy living on Lake Austin and all the many activities that it offers. My "off" lake activities are tennis, golf, hiking, happy hours and Pilates.
Call me and we can explore your needs. Whether you're buying or selling, I'll help you find a solution that works for you.
