Design & Marketing

Catherine Sanderson

Catherine is our resident expert in design and marketing, and a native Austinite. Her love for real estate and design was ignited through the process of remodeling her first 1940’s home, and since, she has continued honing her design eye both through interior design and as a professional marketer and photographer for over 13 years. Using her knack for design, breadth of marketing experience, love of customer service and a keen eye for detail, Catherine assists with a wide range of responsibilities including property preparation, vendor coordination, and implementation of marketing plans. She finds an immense amount of joy in celebrating her hometown through her work and helping our clients present their homes in the best light possible to sell for top dollar.

 

With a husband, two young children, and a passion for checking off bucket list items, Catherine is always excited for her next adventure. When not helping our clients prepare their homes, she can be found continually redecorating rooms in her house, reading design books and exploring the outdoors with her friends and family.

Jen Berbas


Certified Negotiation Expert

Certified Pricing Strategy Advisor

Certified Luxury Home Marketing Specialist

Accredited Buyer's Representative

Million Dollar Guild

Jen has been a proud Austinite since she came to Austin to attend UT, and after a few brief stints in Chicago and Minneapolis, she came back as soon she could. Now she lives in her favorite place on earth (except maybe a Greek Island) and feels so incredibly lucky to be here.

 

Jen’s background in finance, first as an options trader and then working in the credit markets, laid the groundwork for a career in real estate and informs much of her work. She has an affinity for Excel and an excellent grasp of the real estate market and investments. Don't be surprised if you're shopping for investment property and you receive a spreadsheet!

 

In 2000, Jen bought a home in Austin with an eye toward building a personal portfolio. In 2006 she received her real estate license, and in 2012 she made the jump to real estate full time. When Jen started to purchase, rehab, and invest in properties in Austin, she learned about common issues found in central Austin homes and how to solve them. She loves passing on this knowledge and working with people new to Austin; it gives her an opportunity to be a tour guide in her favorite city and show buyers the corners of town that will fit them best. For buyers coming to Austin from New York and Chicago, her time spent in these cities provides her with unique insight on urban condo living.

 

Jen’s experience as a three-time IRONMAN Triathlon finisher has shaped the kind of focus and discipline she brings to any project - she enjoys helping buyers focus on their long-term real estate and financial goals. When Jen is not geeking out on a spreadsheet, or some great 1940's house that just hit the market, she can usually be found at Radio Coffee, the pottery studio, running around Town Lake with her husband, or playing with her dogs and enjoying this amazing city we’re all so lucky to call home.

Angele Moyseos

A lifelong Texan, Angele has lived in Austin, off and on, for more than 30 years. A love of music, as well as a desire to continue her education, originally brought her to Austin. In the 90's she played a lead role in the city's music scene playing in various rock and roll bands. Angele saw first hand the transformation of Austin real estate, especially changes in the Warehouse and Downtown districts.

In 1997, she created a gourmet food manufacturing company. Taking advantage of a great idea and unique opportunity, Angele moved her business back to her hometown of Fort Worth.  At 27 years old, her first project was a complete commercial rehab of a vintage 1920's storefront. It was there that she learned the ins and outs of dealing with City ordinances and permitting processes. After selling her business, Angele moved to New York City. She began investing in residential real estate as an income source. Angele still owns a stand-alone home in Long Island City/Astoria, Queens, an area she holds near to her heart in part to her Greek heritage.

After a career in Financial Services, she and her family relocated to Austin. It was in the search for their next home that she realized her love of real estate. She quickly completed her Associate's Degree in Real Estate and became licensed in 2009. After cutting her teeth on leases, she dove into the residential real estate market. In 2011, she received her Texas Real Estate Broker's license, a license held by less than 1% of Realtors because of the education, training, and experience required.

 

Angele's diverse experience and expertise bring a unique perspective to her professional relationships. She understands passion and opportunity across real estate transactions: from families looking for a new home to homeowners making a life change, as well as investment properties. She loves understanding her client's needs and hunting for the best transaction. It is her outside of the box thinking and creative approach that wins the deal time and time again.

Angele sees her real estate career as a gift and the most enjoyable career path she has ever taken. She lives with her young son (who loves coding, boxing and chess) in the Zilker neighborhood.
