Elizabeth grew up in NYC, but found her way to Austin looking for warmer weather and a flourishing business environment.

Her professional background includes a little bit of everything from co-founding an international stationery company in Montreal, to working in purchasing for a fashion company in NYC, and selling software in Austin. Her diversity has taught her to have a multi-disciplinary approach to her work, which allows her to succeed with all types of clients in a variety of situations.
She is passionate about social impact, improving the communities of the area, and local entrepreneurship. She is on the Austin Board of REALTORS® Foundation Board of Directors, whose mission is to connect the philanthropic passion of Central Texas REALTORS® to worthy local causes related to housing, education, and disaster relief. She is also the Director for the Texas Young Professionals, and a member of the Junior League of Austin.
Elizabeth lives in East Austin with her husband who is the Quality Manager for StoryBuilt (formerly PSW Real Estate), and their dog Coleman. She is a workout class aficionado, hikes and plays in the Greenbelt, and is a member of the Austin Symphony Bats. She loves trying new local businesses and knows the best food spots around town. She is also a world traveler, and thinks that food markets in Asia are the holy grail.
"Meeting with Elizabeth for the first time we recognized that she combines great attitude with great know-how. We were in the market for our first house purchase and searching in South Austin for something modest in price; not always an easy feat. Elizabeth is well-researched and knowledgeable about builders, construction styles, locations, etc. Every place we checked out, she was quick to point out the pros and cons, the red flags and the silver linings. When found the house to which we made our first offer, Elizabeth was super-responsive in every step. With her hard work, not only was the offer accepted within 24 hours, but we were fully in-contract within 48 hours. Elizabeth was immediate with all documents that needed our attention (and signatures) along the way and was always available to speak about our questions or concerns. She was present for the inspection and helped make the closing process as smooth as possible. Not only was she our realtor, but we also consider her a friend. We recommend Elizabeth Michael to anybody looking for their new home, whether that be a stepping stone or forever home."
