Ahh! Austin! You're going to love living here!
An award winning agent and one of the most trusted names in real estate, Riley Masterson has built his reputation based on a philosophy he embraced when he first became a Realtor in 1992. Riley Masterson has grown his business by focusing on people, principles and long term relationships.
"At the beginning of my career I realized that I was in the service business-not just the sales business. A critical component of serving my client is listening. What is important in their lives and identifying their priorities is essential. Buying and selling is a significant and emotional process, and understanding all the different components of the transaction from the client's point of view is priceless."
After attending the University of Texas in the mid seventies Riley entered into the retail clothing business with L&M House of Jeans as regional sales manager and then becoming the Vice President of Operations for Palais Royal until the early eighties. During the eighties Riley and his brother owned and operated PPC, Inc. (a building, farm and ranch supply business with an influence of poultry equipment and supplies).
"Real estate sales basically fell into my lap. Knowing just about everyone affiliated in the poultry business in seven counties in East Texas, I started putting buyers and sellers together for poultry farms, cattle ranches, timber tracts, etc. It was a natural."
During this time, Riley owned Masterbuilt Signature Homes and developed small subdivisions in East Texas. Riley moved back to Austin in 2000 and lives close to both his children and grandchildren. Over the years, Riley's clients have kept him busy by sending him referrals for their friends and family.
