Each month we shift the spotlight to one of our Allure Agents so you can get to know them as we do: A unique individual who is not only one of Austin's finest professional REALTOR®s but one of the finest people we know. We interviewed Sonia Guardado to see why she loves Real Estate, what makes her unique and some fun facts others don't know!
Sit back and enjoy Sonia Guardado, keeping it real!
What part of Austin do you reside in, Sonia?
My family and I moved to Round Rock in 2005 and we’re so happy we did. The small town feel combined with easy access to all Austin has to offer is a perfect fit for our family.
What are some of your favorite things to do in Austin?
As our son has grown, so have our interests. We love visiting The Domain, especially Northside, and watching the world go by from a patio seat at Culinary Dropout, our current favorite restaurant.
What are your hobbies or interests outside of Real Estate?
I enjoy traveling, especially to mountain locales, scrapbooking, and baking up treats for my family and friends.
Why did you decide to get into Real Estate?
I had been a teacher for 13 years and decided it was time to leave the field and discover a new career. I pulled up a list called “Things to with a Social Studies degree” and real estate was number four. I can honestly say I’m using my degree- it is a perfect match for real estate, especially my geography and economic skills!
What do you love most about being a REALTOR®?
There is so much to love about this career. Meeting new people and forging friendships has been the most rewarding aspect. But what I love most is the look of absolute joy the moment a buyer finds the “one” and knowing you helped make that moment possible for them.
What do you love most about working at Allure Real Estate?
The professionalism and drive of my colleagues is infectious! Working alongside full-time agents is huge and their energy pushes me. The culture at Allure is truly collaborative and incredibly supportive. The brokers are readily available and have a solid knowledge basis that shines through in their training and advice. Allure isn’t so large that I am lost among the masses or so small that I don’t have a support system. It is sized perfectly for my needs!
And we saved the best question for last. What would you like others to know most about you?
I am a native Texan but I spent six years living in Michigan with my husband and son. I’ve experienced two cross--country relocations and lived to tell the tales. I was also a two-time winner of a local trivia game show called, “Texas Know-It-Alls” and I won fabulous trips to San Antonio, El Paso, and Amarillo so I’ve been all over this great state.
Wow! Thanks, Sonia for keeping it real with us and being such a valuable member of our team!
