Growing up in a small town in North Texas, Austin’s wonderful mother, Carol, drove endless miles between sporting events. The Crowder family loved the game of football. His father, Don, played at Southern Methodist University. His brother, Jimmy, and cousin, Billy Joe Tolliver, played at Texas Tech University. Billy went on to have a long career in the NFL. Both of his sisters can still throw a perfect spiral.
A four-year letterman in football for the Demon Deacons, Austin graduated with a BA in Communications from Wake Forest University in 1995. After a short stint in the National Football League (3 whole days), Austin turned his focus back to education, later earning his law degree from Texas A&M University School of Law in Fort Worth, TX.
As a Financial Representative for Northwestern Mutual Financial Network in Dallas, he specialized in individual and small business planning, coached new representatives, and received numerous sales based awards including “Rookie of the Year” honors in 1999.
Growing tired of the scalding Texas summers, he moved his family to Western North Carolina in 2001. Austin joined Coye Consultants, Inc., the nation’s largest distributor of Toro Landscape Contractor Equipment, in March of 2003. In charge of New Business Development, Austin created the new dealer process, from prospecting to making sure new dealers were successful in their first year. Austin not only managed the process for Coye Consultants, Inc., but also served as the liaison for The Toro Company and GE Commercial Distribution Finance regarding new dealers. Through research, recruiting, new dealer set-up, and product education, Austin played a fundamental role in growth of Toro dealerships and overall brand awareness across the Southeast.
Ready to be off the road and to spend more time with his family, Austin joined the fastest growing real estate firm in Western NC. Team Crowder became the top team with Keller Williams Realty in Brevard.
Now Austin and Alisha have joined up with Billy McCoy and opened RE/MAX Land of the Waterfalls. Austin is the Broker-in-Charge and Team Crowder still leads as the top team. They have expanded Team Crowder throughout Western NC,
Through his strong educational background and excitement of creating dreams, that is what drives Austin to be everyone’s Realtor. Austin lives in downtown Brevard, NC, with his beautiful bride of 19 years, Alisha, and their three daughters, Alexandria, Audrey, and Abigail.
