Penny Kavanaugh

Although Penny moved to Austin 2 years ago from Tuscaloosa, AL, she grew up in Beaumont, TX and has always considered Texas her home.

She moved to Austin to be near 2 of her 3 sons. When they were growing up, she had been a stay at home mom to be involved in their activities. She coached soccer, basketball, cub scout den leader, PTA volunteer chairman, taught Sunday School, and served on several boards including Habitat for Humanity and Temporary Emergency Services.

After going back to complete a BS in HR Management in 2004, she decided to obtain her Real Estate License in 2005. She sold real estate in Tuscaloosa for the next 5 years, closing on 22 transactions her first year.

Although she worked with sellers and buyers, she specialized in working with first time home buyers. It takes patience and time to work with someone who is trying to purchase their first home. She has the knowledge needed to help someone go through the process of purchasing a home and the patience it takes to work with first time homebuyers.

A previous client posted this remark to her Linkdedin account:

"We had Penny as our realtor in Tuscaloosa and she helped us with a few real estate transactions. Penny was extremely knowledgeable about the real estate practices and procedures. She was fairly new at the time, but I have overheard her explain details to more experienced agents who in my estimation should have known the information she was explaining. She does her homework, is attentive to detail and is very personable. My only regret is she moved and can no longer by my agent. Kevin Lind”

Although Penny is relatively new to Austin, she has quickly learned the area. Especially South Austin where she currently resides.

In her spare time she has already gotten involved in many volunteer activities. She leads hikes and conditioning walks for a meetup called boomertime. She did income tax returns this year for the Financial Community Center and she volunteers as a Facilitator for NAMI Family Support Groups.

Please feel free to contact her for your real estate needs.
