Alexia's love of homes, architecture, interior design, and the desire to work for herself is what eventually led her into the real estate industry. She grew up in a family of interior designers. She believes that because of her exposure to design, she has a good feel for what a buyer is looking for in a home and how to prepare a home for market. . As such, pre-marketing staging advice is an important part of what she offers to her listing clients. She ALSO offers complimentary staging for her seller clients.
Alexia met and married her husband, Eddie, in 2004, and they now have three teenagers – Olivia, Grant and Ava. She lives in Southwest Austin on the outskirts of Dripping Springs in a master-planned community called Belterra. She is devoted to the community where she lives. She volunteers her spare time and donates 10% of her income to many Austin area charities, including Habitat for Humanity, Foundation Communities, The Safe Alliance, Young Men’s Service League, Give Amore, Meals on Wheels, Foster Village, Compassion International, the Dripping Springs Education Foundation, and her home church, Austin Ridge Bible Church. In her free time, she enjoys spending time with her family and friends and can often be found running the hike and bike trails in her neighborhood or running local races around town with her husband and kids.
