Thank you for visiting Eco Homes Austin. I'm Ken Altes, Austin, Texas REALTOR.
My areas of concentration are:
-- Central Austin Neighborhoods
-- Modern and Historic Properties
-- Green and Solar Technologies
I came to Austin from Dallas to attend the University of Texas, earning a degree in History. Loving Austin, I stayed and then raised my lovely daughter, Carmen. Since Carmen's been off to college, Woody, my constant companion (a four year old Boxer/mix) and I live and play in the Bouldin Creek neighborhood, just south of Lady Bird Lake. I have always lived in central Austin and know its charms very well.
I've been a licensed real estate professional 29 years. Along the way, I've learned a lot about Green technologies, retrofitting about 500 homes and co-authoring Austin's Building Code for Energy Efficiency. No other Austin Realtor has inspected 8000 homes and commercial buildings, including a large number of historic, landmark structures as a licensed inspector.
I can help you avoid costly mistakes, and navigate towards solutions. I have training and experience negotiating property condition issues, among others, and finding creative solutions to keep a transaction on track.
For community service, I work to protect Central Austin neighborhoods and preserve their natural and architectural treasures, including the fight to save the iconic, historic Seaholm Power Plant building on Lady Bird Lake in Central Austin. Also, Woody and I work to preserve Austin's leash-free dog parks.
Call anytime to discuss your real estate needs.
