A Personal Message From Laura Duggan
Laura Duggan is the broker/owner of West Austin Properties, a second-generation family-owned real estate firm located in Austin, Texas. As a third-generation native with over 30 years experience, Laura is uniquely prepared to represent both buyers and sellers in the purchase and sale of a home of any size and in any price range. When approaching the goals of each client, Laura says that “It’s not about the property, it is about the people.”
Doing relocation work is also a passion. Laura loves to connect clients and their families to all of the people and services that make their relocation a success. Whether it is matching a special academic setting or finding a job for a spouse, her team makes the process seamless. A recent client commented, “I can’t believe how stressful this move would have been without the team at West Austin Properties.” When recruiting and relocating employees, the human resources departments in many area companies consider the skills and services of the West Austin team to be a valuable resource.
Laura also has a strong network of real estate contacts from lenders and appraisers to inspectors, designers, stagers, contractors, accountants and legal advisers. Everyone collaborates to get the job done. “Whatever the need, we have the resource! We even have an international network of real estate professionals who can serve our clients moving to other cities across the world.”
A graduate of the University of Texas at Austin with two degrees, Laura has been married to husband Brad since 1981 and they have two adult daughters, Kerry and Katy. “This is a family business. My father and grandfather taught us to treat each client like they were family. What greater joy can one have then helping a family member with the purchase or sale of a home?” Laura and the whole team carry on that tradition.
