About melissagriggswebb

My professional career has always had a focus on sales and marketing including a diverse mix of technology and media sales as well as fund raising and event planning experience. My passion for residential real estate and design led me back to Texas almost a decade ago at which time I acquired my real estate license. I escalated my real estate career when I partnered in a business with my husband, Robert, in which we renovate homes in the Central Austin area. We have a daughter who is the joy of our lives and keeps us on the go and on our toes! Besides my family, my interests include art, design, jogging and music. I am a member of the Austin Board of REALTORS®, the Texas Association of REALTORS®, the National Association of REALTORS® and Member of Who’s Who in Luxury Real Estate. My enthusiasm for the highly desired Austin lifestyle, in addition to my extensive knowledge, resourcefulness and professionalism, make me the one to call for properties in Austin.
