Luxury Agent Sarah Short Joins Best of Wilco Team
Kiersty Lombar of Keller Williams Realty launches today a luxury division focused on serving Williamson County to meet the increased market demands of properties $400,000 and above. In 2013, a 42 percent increase in $500,000 and up properties sold in Williamson County over 2012. This year, 104 of those properties are on the market with 35 already under contract and pending sale. The division, Best of Wilco, will meet the needs of the home owner looking to buy or sell higher-end properties in a county that continues to grow at a fast pace.
“Williamson County is booming and coming into its own,” says Lombar, a Platinum Top 50 Finalist for 2014 and Georgetown resident of more than 10 years. “With that comes demand for more and for something different, in this case more luxurious, as the area is seeing an influx of relocations, many from out of state, and an increase in median home price.”
As part of the luxury team, Sarah Short joins as an agent focusing on the purchase of new luxury homes for clients. Short, a Georgetown resident since 1997 and Austin local since 1974, brings business acumen, with more than two decades of experience with Motorola and more recently with West Short & Associates, P.C., as well as her personal insight, having been a stay-at-home mother.
“I am ready to bring my market knowledge and business expertise to serve those clients looking for luxury homes in the Williamson County area,” said Short. “I’ve known Kiersty for several years and have been quite impressed with her experience, professionalism and knowledge of real estate. She has a qualified team of people she works with to not only sell real estate but also be absolutely available to and thorough with her clients.”
