Heather C. Powell – Realtor


Heather, a native Austinite, brings a creative and collaborative approach to real estate. Growing up in Tarrytown and graduating from UT, she is uniquely familiar with Austin’s hidden treasures and all the city has to offer. From her many years at Word of Mouth Catering and her own event company, she has loved working with hundreds of home grown companies, non-profit organizations and social clients. Her loyalty, enthusiasm and attention to detail are her trademarks.

Heather loves a good challenge and is incredibly resourceful (some may say crafty). She loves getting to know her clients, understanding their goals and helping them to realize their vision. Heather digs in to help clients explore and find their ideal neighborhood, matching them with great schools, shops, restaurants, parks and iconic Austin landmarks. She truly knows Austin inside and out.

She is a community advocate who volunteers all over Austin, whether running fundraisers at her son’s school, advocating for AIDS services, promoting early childhood education, or simply taking dinner to a friend. Heather’s family is her foundation. She and her partner, Julia and their son, Griffin, love to travel, hike, explore Austin and experiment in their kitchen. Heather can be found working out at Castle Hill, having coffee at Texas French Bread or lunch at Matt’s El Rancho with lifelong friends and family.

What Clients Say About Heather:

“When I decided to sell my house in east/central Austin I wanted an agent who knew Austin, knew the market and was dedicated to provide the service and marketing needed to make the process as easy as possible and maximize the price. I absolutely made the right decision when contracting with Heather Powell. Heather was so easy to work with; anticipating my questions and concerns, keeping me informed every step of the way and being an excellent advocate for me and the house. Not only did she put in amazing effort to market, position and sell my house, she did it with a tenacity and enthusiasm that continually impressed me. While my house was on the market, I moved out of Texas. I had no worries that being far away would be an issue. Heather stepped in and took care of the things that were difficult for me to do remotely. Heather’s knowledge, professionalism, good humor and good old fashioned tenacity resulted in outcomes that exceeded my expectations in every way. I got a great price on the house and closing was totally stress free. If you are looking for an excellent agent who will take the time to understand your needs and work tirelessly to exceed your expectations – look no further than Heather!”
