Get to Know Carla Black

Carla Black is a rock star REALTOR – quite literally.

She discovered a passion for real estate following a storied, 30-year career in the music industry: first as a musician, then a magazine publisher/journalist and finally as a conference organizer.

Carla’s entrepreneurial spirit and enthusiasm for working with creative (some might even say high maintenance) people gives her an edge with the edgy. If you are particular or have very specific real estate needs, “Bring it on!”

“I’ve interviewed and worked with some of the most successful and demanding artists in the world,” she says. “I quickly learned how to negotiate and communicate both the big and small pictures. As a real estate agent, my persistence and people skills make a big difference for all my clients, whether they are rock stars or first time buyers.”

Some of Carla’s past experiences include:

• Writing for magazines like Rolling Stone (remember the Britney Teletubby issue?).

• Appearing as a music expert on “Behind the Music” and other series for VH1, WE-TV, MTV and more.

• Producing international conferences for women in music which included speakers like Courtney Love, Ronnie Spector, The Wilson sisters of Heart, Amy Ray, Wanda Jackson, Patti Smith, Suzi Quatro, Kathy Valentine and many more.

• Selling her magazine papers to Schlesinger Library at Harvard University.

• Appearing as a judge on a Seattle “American Idol” television series.

It’s not surprising that Carla first discovered Austin via annual treks to SXSW.

“I never knew how much the city had to offer until I moved and truly fell in love with the place,” she says. “My greatest joy now is sharing the Austin vibe and the magic of Hill Country with others – whether they are moving here and don’t yet know their way around or are long-time residents moving to other locales.”

So call Carla Black to handle all your real estate needs – because you deserve rock star treatment!

Communications and negotiations.

“No problem pertaining to the sale seemed too overwhelming to Carla, and we had a few rough spots. Her can-do attitude and passion for doing her job well carried us all through what can be a very emotionally draining experience. Carla made us feel that selling our house was the most important job she had to do.”
Rick Brennes
“I am a difficult client to deal with and Carla was absolutely superb. She is the consummate professional with extensive market knowledge, wonderful listening skills, and exhibits the highest integrity. Carla also has remarkable negotiating skills which will lead to the maximum dollar return for you as a seller. I highly recommend her for either side of a real estate transaction without any hint of reservation.”

Before I was an agent I was a client. I worked with several agents and discovered what is most important to me is good communication. I will never leave you hanging! Call me for all the right moves.
