Top Producing Agents ​and the #1 Side Agent in Austin Join @properties Christie’s International Real Estate

Top-producing group of agents’ 2022 combined sales exceeded $180M

@Properties Christie’s International Real Estate, a renowned name in the global luxury real estate sector, announces the addition of 17 top-producing agents to their new Austin office. These agents include 16 former Realty Austin Agents as well as the #1 Side agent in Austin, realtor Khani Zulu.  This group of agents collectively generated more than $180M in sales transactions in 2022.

“We are thrilled to welcome these exceptional agents to our @properties Christie’s International family,” said Romeo Manzanilla, COO and Principal at @properties Christie’s. “Their decision to choose our platform speaks volumes about our commitment to excellence and dedication to delivering superior results for our clients. We look forward to combining our expertise and resources to further elevate the real estate experience.”

The group departing Realty Austin chose to join the recently launched @properties Christie’s luxury brokerage, instead of rebranding as Compass agents after Compass acquired Realty Austin in September. “The Realty Austin agents opted for the new luxury brand that aligns seamlessly with their vision of providing top-notch white glove service to their clients,” added Manzanilla. “Their decision to transition to @Properties Christie’s reflects a commitment to innovation, international reach, and a deep understanding of the ever-evolving luxury real estate market. The move is poised to create new opportunities for growth, expansion, and enhanced services for clients.” 

The #1 Side agent in Austin, Khani Zulu, with her unique style and flair, has also joined the @Properties Christie’s brokerage.  Khani, and her team of exceptional agents, will operate as Khani Zulu Group.    The Realty Austin agents joining @Properties Christie’s includes Lindsey Hicks, Rick Whittmore, Ami Davis, Allison Crow, Patti Simon, Brooke Long, Debbie Barrera, Jamie Keegan, Garance Jones, Shelly Hemingson, Jonna Juul-Hansen, Susie Lee, Maricruz Acuña, Robert Mexquitic, Marisol Stadelmann, and Angela Avila – all former agents with Realty Austin.  The agents, whose combined experience spans decades, and combined 2022 sales exceeded $180M, have been consistently recognized for their outstanding performance in the real estate industry.

@Properties Christie’s is under the ownership and operation of Jerry Mooty Jr., with backing from the Jerry Jones family, the illustrious owners of the Dallas Cowboys Football Club. Mooty, Jones’ nephew, also owns @Properties Christie’s International Real Estate offices in Dallas and Frisco. Mooty said, “This addition to our growing team allows Austin’s #1 Side agent and former Realty Austin agents to take their businesses to new heights, building on their past successes and creating opportunities for an even brighter future. This shift also emphasizes their dedication to staying at the forefront of the industry, leveraging cutting-edge technology, and tapping into the global resources provided by Christie’s International Real Estate. I look forward to working with each of them for continued success in the Austin market and beyond.”
