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

As soon as I could, I left Dallas to attend the University of Texas, earning a degree in History. Loving Austin, I stayed and raised my lovely daughter, Carmen., now grown and living in Boston. My best buddy, Woody, is my furry companion, a 5 year old Boxer/mix. I have always lived in central Austin and know its many charms very well.

I've been a licensed real estate professional 31 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. This deep experience can help you avoid serious problems and arrive at the best solutions to problems that may arise during negotiations.

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.
