Roots are anchors, life giving veins that are vital to growth, and Elissa Sexton, born, raised and educated in Austin, is grateful that her parents chose to plant their family roots right here. She’s a proud first-generation American, Texan and Austinite who loves her town, her family, organic gardening and real estate. She attended St. Edwards University where she graduated Magna Cum Laude with a degree in Theatre Arts. She spent many happy moments on the stage and in the spotlight during school, and after, in and around Austin. After graduation, she kept her college retail job and moved up the ladder. “One day I decided that I couldn’t spend any more of my life in a mall with no windows,” she laughed. She decided that an opportunity in property management would be a great segue into real estate. However, the property company was sold before she started, so she ended up working with a Private Investigator while she worked on her real estate license. “That was an experience, for sure,” she sighs. “Real estate is definitely where I’m supposed to be.”
My goal as a professional Realtor is to make sure my clients have a great home purchasing or selling experience. Everyone’s situation is different and being able to read the needs of the individual is key. The ability to listen, problem solve and have patience is important to helping others attain their goal. I exercise these skills when working with clients to alleviate stress and make the transaction smooth. Below some of my clients discuss their experience working with me.
“We LOVE our incredible Realtor, Elissa Sexton! She helped us with both the purchase of our new house and the sale of our old home. We couldn’t be more pleased! Elissa has our utmost trust & gratitude. As a former realtor and one who knows how this process should be done right, I could not give anyone a higher recommendation than Elissa. It was a God-send to find her and such a relief off our shoulders to have her handle the sale, negotiations and closings on both our homes. We greatly appreciate Elissa’s extensive expertise, her calm, confident demeanor and wonderful advice. She made sure both deals and closings went smoothly! She’s such a joy and pleasure to work with and we are honored to now call her our friend. Thank you, Elissa!”

“Elissa is an amazing person, and that includes being awesome at her job. This was my first time buying a home. and while it can be an overwhelming process with a lot of information to learn, Elissa is a wealth of knowledge. Not only from her experience on the job, but leans on her personal experience with buying and remodeling her own home. I never had a doubt that Elissa put my best interest first, and made a point to get to know me better through the process. She really helped find the best home for me. I can’t think of a more confident, patient, and good natured to person to have on my side when buying a home. A million thanks to Elissa!”

“Elissa Sexton was our amazing real estate agent for 6 months. We were an extremely picky family when it came to finding just the right home for our family, hence having Elissa with us for that length of time. Never once did she waver in her enthusiasm or determination in assisting us. She gleaned from all of our likes and dislikes of the types of homes we were looking at (interior, exterior, location) and was able to really help us in our search process, thus, saving us much time and energy.”

“Elissa is a long-time friend, so when it came to choosing a realtor, we knew we could trust her to have our best interest at heart. Elissa was professional and found homes that were uniquely suited to our personalities, desire, and budget. Nothing quite fit what we wanted, so we delayed the purchase for three years. The second time around we found our dream home. Elissa gave us very clear advice, presenting our options and possible outcomes, without persuading or pressuring us. We trusted her completely. In the end we got our home for $3,000 below the asking price, with $4,000 worth of repairs and all of our closing costs covered. She was quite the negotiator, and we knew that when it came to her clients, she would fight for us. We love our home and are so thankful that we had such an easy experience buying it, largely due to our wonderful realtor.”

“I was immediately drawn to Elissa’s sweet personality approachability, and sense of style. As I got to know her, it was apparent she would be the one to get me over “cold feet” and help me buy my first home. Even after telling Elissa I had backed out of two previous contracts, she didn’t hesitate to take me as a client. I had no idea what i wanted or what area i wanted to live in, but Elissa found a wide variety of fabulous homes to show me. We became great friends and I looked forward to the days we viewed homes together! She had lots of patience and energy through the long and sometimes emotional process. When we found the right house, everything went very smooth and she was at my side the whole way. Elissa made the home buying process exciting and fun and I couldn’t be happier with my experience and my new home!”

“I needed to find an inexpensive condo fast! I figured a realtor wouldn’t give me the time of day. I seemed to be Elissa’s primary focus since the moment we met! Her honest and enthusiastic approach to helping me find my home was refreshing and I found a place within my schedule and budget. Elissa provided me with service as if I was the most important client she ever had!”

“We would like to thank you again for helping us finding our new home. We appreciate very much what you have done for us in such a short time. I know it had to be frustrating some times for you since we had such a hard time making our minds up, but you always had smile on your face and never lost your patience. We certainly would recommend you to our friends and anybody who is looking for house.”
