Kathryn Scarborough is a fifth-generation Austinite and has been crafting a bespoke living experience in Austin for over 22 years with close to one and a half BILLION in sales.
Kathryn is one of Austin's top Luxury Agents and has been recognized as the #1 Real Estate Agent city-wide by the Austin Business Journal in years past and consistently ranks in the top tier. She has achieved a reputation in Austin for providing quality service based on integrity, knowledge, and professionalism. Under the mentorship of her mother, Michele Turnquist, Kathryn was taught every aspect of the real estate industry. Kathryn's philosophy, as is her mother's, is "knowledge is power." In addition to being the company Top Producer for 2004 to present, she also set a record for the highest record sale in Austin’s history, selling a Lake Austin home listed for $38,900,000.
Kathryn was appointed President of Engel & Völkers Austin in 2015 when her family firm merged with the global brand and is recognized as being in the Top 1% of Texas Realtors® (number 16 state-wide). Kathryn is a recipient of the DuPont Registry Top Luxury Real Estate Professional Award and is a Certified Luxury Home Marketing Specialist. Kathryn has also been a distinguished member of the Million Dollar Guild, Realm, Luxury League, and Austin's "Elite 25" for the last decade. She was recently inducted into the top tier of the world's Realtors through Private Office, which is an exclusive hand-selected group of 31 advisors in all North America, that represent over two billion dollars in sales annually in the most sought after and desirable markets in the country.
Kathryn realizes that being at the top in your field is not always about awards and achievements; it has more to do with knowing the business and keeping up with market trends and statistics. It is about knowing what is on the market even before it is actively marketed. It is about understanding her client's needs and expectations and being able to deliver and surpass those expectations. It is about truly caring!
Along with a busy career in real estate and raising her three children, Kathryn also finds time for philanthropy. She serves on several non-profit boards and has chaired committees for the Austin Children's Shelter for the last decade. She is also a board member of The Capital Campaign for Dell Children's Medical Center of Central Texas, Dell Women's Trust, Women of Hope, The Texas Realty Advisory Board, and has served on the Austin Board of Realtors Grievance Committee.

No job is too small, and no task is unattainable. Bringing a higher level of service and sophistication to Austin Real Estate with a truly global reach. With whom you work matters.
