As a fourth generation Austinite and daughter of a prominent Texas Architect, Jane’s interest and record success in real estate has come very naturally. During summer breaks from college, she worked at her father’s architectural firm typing specifications and going on property inspections; not only learning certain aspects of construction and design, but gaining appreciation and insight into the housing industry.
Jane and her family later moved to Santa Fe, New Mexico where she began her 15 year career in real estate. Her real estate business increased year after year as she assisted buyers, sellers and investors, soon becoming one of the top performing realtors in a very competitive and exclusive market.
Jane attributes much of her success to her passion for people and the enjoyment of the industry itself. “Selling real estate is not about houses, it’s about people. Listening to a client and hearing what will satisfy their needs is the hallmark of success.”
As a buyer’s agent, Jane is heralded for her perception, knowledge of the market, professional ethics and strong negotiation skills.
Sellers appreciate her vast marketing experience and willingness to go the extra mile to present their home in its best light while aggressively marketing to other realtors and buyers.
Delighted to call Austin home again, Jane feels that she has come full circle with her personal and professional life. “It’s truly a blessing to bring my years of experience in this industry back to serve the people of such a great city!”
Some Highlights of Jane’s Real Estate Success Include:
• Top 10 percentile of Santa Fe in 2005
• Top 1 percentile of Santa Fe in 2009
• Certified Relocation Specialist with “Leading Real Estate Companies of the World”
• Certified Cendant Mobility and USAA Movers Advantage Relocation Specialist
• Member of the Luxury Market Group in Santa Fe

The Hume Rost team at Realty Austin is a consummate professional duo who know the fast-paced Austin market better than the multitude of Realtors in the business. Our family utilized their services for both a purchase and recent sale. Thanks to their years of experience, realistic advise and attention to detail we sold our South Austin home in two days for an amount significantly over asking price. Jane and Erin possess an impeccable work ethic. They are honest, hard working, timely, reliable, communicative, and simply nice people with whom we have had the pleasure to associate. We most highly recommend them to anyone who is in need of Realtors in the greater Austin area.

I worked with Erin Rost. She provides exceptional customer service and adds a quality personal touch. Not only did she listen, but Erin constantly advocated to get us the best price on our home. I never hugged a Realtor before until her. I highly recommend Erin and Realty Austin.

The Jane Hume and Erin Rost team were awesome! Both were so patient with us during our search, and Erin did a lot of handholding throughout the process and led us on to a very successful closing. Their guidance was invaluable, and we would recommend them to anyone. Thanks!

It was great working with Erin and Jane. Throughout the process, both of them were accessible to me, and were always willing to answer my questions, and find out more than I needed. Erin with her calmness made this process that much more peaceful. She had great references like mortgage lenders who were great in providing more advise to me. She was always on top of the builder to get ETAs and explanations for some delays. All in all Erin and Jane are awesome to work with, and their experience really helps first time home buyers like me. I would absolutely refer some of my friends to Realty Austin and specifically Erin and Jane.

Jane and Erin are an awesome team! When I first started poking around the Austin market, it was a half-hearted attempt. However, with a combination of their consistent follow-up, non-pushiness, and Realty Austin's great listing format, I felt very comfortable making the trip from Boston and taking the plunge. From the get-go, both Jane and Erin have been wonderful to work with. They are very patient and thorough, and we have greatly appreciated the time and knowledge they have shared with us. Jane and Erin are truly a great team!
September 1 2018
I've bought and sold my house with Erin. It was a great experience, and Erin was always available to help negotiate a better agreement. I would definitely recommend Erin and Realty Austin.
July 1 2018
I had a wonderful experience with Jane and Erin, they have been patient and helped me search for the perfect property for over two years! And Erin has gone above and beyond when I actually came into town to do a closer search. She showed us properties from one side of Austin's outer edge to the other; when we found the perfect property her job had just begun! A challenging accomplishment I must say. Without those ladies, this would not have happened for us!! It's been a long time coming, and we are truly grateful for all of their help!!
June 1 2018
Jane and Erin were extremely helpful to us. Their knowledge of our needs and the Austin area market helped us find a very nice house that was available when we needed it to be. In addition, they are both very personable and friendly. We enjoyed working with Jane and Erin and would not hesitate to use them again.

Erin was the absolute best! Coming from Alabama with very limited time, she managed to show us multiple properties. Erin was very patient and thorough with my son and I. It was very apparent that this was not her first rodeo. I so enjoyed meeting Erin and would definitely use her again!
April 1 2018
Jane and Erin are the best! They have taken really good care of me, and Jane is still doing it! Jane and Erin are fun, extremely knowledgeable, and full of energy. I highly recommend them!
April 1 2018
The Jane and Erin team were professional, diligent and attentive in helping us find and close on a house as we prepare to move to Austin. With good preplanning including daily emails before our househunting trip, we were able to find a great home that checked off all our boxes in a single weekend. We never felt pressured. Rather we felt well-provided with information and options.
April 1 2018
Jane and Erin are the best! I am so appreciative of all the hard work they did to help in selling my Aunt Dorothy Turner’s house and property so quickly. I also had the pleasure of meeting Jane while in Austin recently and she was a very sweet and pleasant lady. Thanks, for all the help Jane and Erin did by email for me since I live in NC. I made new friends!
January 1 2018
Erin did a wonderful job showing us around Austin, helping us find a rental, and then most recently helping us find the home we purchased. We made a cross-country move with a baby and a toddler which made it incredibly stressful. Erin helped us find the most desirable areas for our family and lifestyle. She gave us suggestions for activities and places to go with the kids. She also even gave us recommendations for contractors because we plan to do some remodeling to our new home. I will definitely recommend Erin to anyone I know looking for a Realtor!
October 1 2017
Jane and Erin are both amazing and so easy to work with. I have nothing but wonderful things to say about them and their attention to detail throughout my transaction. I'm thrilled I had the opportunity to work with them and would recommend anyone else to do the same.
August 1 2017
Most of the dust has settled from our move to Austin, and we continue to say 'what a great house!' thanks to Jane and Erin. From our first phone call with them, we knew we'd found the right match to help us find our new home in Austin. Moving here from NC, we had lots of concerns. We worried about schools, commute times, local activities, where to shop and where to find the best tacos. We spent almost a full week with Erin driving us all over Austin, familiarizing us with what each area had to offer and answering our questions. When our house hunting trip came to a close, we found a house that felt like it would meet our needs and we made an offer. Most agents would have stopped there. But Erin kept looking, calling to tell us about an even better house that was just about to come on the market. And she was right. The first house didn't pass inspection, and we were first in line with an offer for the second house. With lots of strategizing the offer was accepted before the house went on the market. Today, we happily call it home. Jane and Erin are the best!

I had a great experience with Erin and Jane. They were very patient and helpful, as my needs and budget changed, and they ultimately helped me to get a house I love.

Honestly, I've never had a better customer service experience in real estate than I have with Jane Hume and Erin Rost. I've been working with them for many years. I met them initially while working at a company handling marketing for the firm and building relationships with realtors. When divorce struck my life in 2015, Jane was the first person I called to get the ball rolling on listing my home in Belterra. Jane and Erin became more than realtors; they have become dear friends. I've been through a rough couple of years and decided to take the next step and lease a condo, which Jane answered the call and found the perfect place for me; in the right neighborhood, price range and with the amenities and space needed as I continue rebuilding my life. I'm grateful to them for this new chapter. I do hope as the next pages are written that I'll be using them again to find a permanent place to put down roots. I'm never afraid to recommend them to anyone. They are the best real estate folks I've ever met. Genuine, honest, caring. They always put their clients first.
April 1 2017
The Jane and Erin Team are the best! They both worked so hard and were so wonderful from the beginning of "We might get a house," all the way until the signing. They took a lot of time to understand our needs and didn't waste our time on houses we were not interested in. I would highly recommend them to anyone. Thank you both!
January 1 2017
Thank you for giving me the opportunity to reflect on Jane's and Erin's assistance to us as a family, but more specifically to my husband Dave and me in finding our Austin home. Jane's and Erin's welcoming, friendly and professional disposition gave us the confidence as they learned our priorities, that our needs and requirements were going to satisfied in finding the appropriate home for us in Austin,Texas.
I am happy to speak for the members of my family that met Jane and Erin, we all have great regard and appreciation for the professional and personalized service they offered to us.
Rest assured that both as a team and individually, Jane and Erin met our expectations and have gone beyond the extra mile to finding our future home and feel welcome in Austin, even before we move in. Realty Austin and particularly the team formed by Jane and Erin would be highly recommended by the Massey family to all in need of their services.

Jane and Erin were absolutely hands down the BEST agents I have ever worked with! I started working with them from out of state just shy of a year ago. They knew exactly what I was looking for and kept my fully updated even before the property went on the market. When we finally made the move to Austin we hit the trails in full force and within 3 weeks we found our dream property! They made me feel like the most important person in the world. They are terrific agents! I did not feel like I was being taken for a ride. They were very thorough and crossed every T and dotted every I. They were very well prepared on every property and had extensive knowledge on every nook and cranny! So, yes, you can say my husband and I were very impressed by these 2 young ladies! The best attribute of Jane and Erin is that they are kind and have big hearts. I truly feel they want you to be 110% in love with your purchase. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts we are over the moon in love with our new home!

We worked with the Jane and Erin Team of realty Austin and couldn't have been happier with the results. The current Austin realty market is very difficult to navigate, especially for first time home buyers like ourselves. We had two offers accepted on homes that after inspection, turned out to be terrible. Jane and Erin both went out of their way to make sure that we did not get ourselves into a house that would end up being a money pit. We were one of many bids on the final house we looked at and Jane and Erin structured our offer in a manner that allowed us to get the house without even being the highest bidder. We highly recommend working with Realty Austin and especially the Jane and Erin Team!

This was our second property with Jane and Erin and we once again had a great experience working with them.
We are amazed with their professionalism, wealth of knowledge and meticulous nature. They are always a phone call away and as I have said in the past - they are way more than “agents” to us, they are friends.
Rest assured that I will be recommending them to colleagues and friends.
We look forward to working with them for many years to come!

Erin and Jane were excellent ambassadors to the Austin area and assisted us greatly in our search for a new home. Realty Austin is fortunate to have two such empathetic, knowledgeable and eager-to-help folks working for them.
July 1 2015
Erin and Jane were recommended to us by a friend who spoke highly of them so we felt very confident about our decision to use their services. We were not disappointed in our choice. They were responsive to our needs and listened closely to our criteria for selecting a home. Although the process of learning about an unfamiliar real estate market is challenging and tiring, we felt secure in the fact that they knew the pros and cons of various neighborhoods and had good insight into the overall Austin market. They both worked very hard to make this experience a home run for us. We are pleased with our purchase and really appreciate their help and guidance.
July 1 2015
We wanted to take this opportunity to thank Jane and Erin team from the bottom of our hearts for being a part of this journey with us, its just the beginning with many more to come!
We appreciate everything that they have done for us - the numerous day trips to the home site, their patience in answering our (sometime stupid) questions, and the love and care with which they have treated us. The Jane and Erin team made us feel comfortable and confident about our first home.
We never thought like we were "dealing with an agent", it was more like "talking to a friend" - and we hope that we can always come back to our friends when we need them.
As first time homebuyers, we could not have asked for more! In days, months and years to come - they will be our first choice, no doubts about that.

Selling my house was a great process. Erin and Jane were super helpful and made the whole experience stress free and that was priceless. We ended up getting way more for the house than originally planned and I couldn't have asked for better agents.

Jane, Erin, myself, and my wife, Mary Lou have developed a wonderful agent-client relationship that we look forward to building into a longer term friendship. Working with them couldn’t have been a better experience for us. We have shared a few emails with Jane and Erin about how much we loved working with them and that we couldn’t have asked for a better couple of realtors to work with. They certainly represented Realty Austin incredibly well, with the utmost professionalism and friendliest of service. They are extremely knowledgeable in real estate and we knew we were in good hands the whole way. We got lucky to find them.

My husband and I have bought and sold many homes over the years, and I can confidently say that this was by far one of the best experiences we have ever had. Both Jane and Erin were wonderful through the process, and really helped us through the relocation, as we are new to Austin.
They were patient and thoughtful and provided a tremendous amount of insight into the area, benefits and challenges with different areas, and highlights to consider. They really made the process fun and greatly reduced our stress.
We love our home and the area and without Jane and Erin, who knows what would have happened!
November 1 2014
Jane and Erin were absolutely wonderful during my entire home search. I have a very busy schedule, and they were always available to go house hunting when I had a second to get out. I jumped around on my location and house preferences multiple times and they stood by my side with every move. They were there to help me with all the questions and concerns I had throughout the entire process. I would highly recommend them to my friends and family!

My experience in working with Jane Hume and Erin Rost has been stellar and culminated in my purchase of a home in Hyde Park at a very affordable price - a small miracle. Jane and Erin also ably represented my daughter and son-in-law when they bought a home in East Austin last year.
When I was deciding whether to relocate from the San Francisco Bay Area, Jane and Erin worked with me for months, familiarizing me with Austin neighborhoods. When I was in a position to buy, they took on the challenge of finding me an affordable home in central Austin. They found several suitable candidates that would fit my rather tight budget, including the small and very charming cottage that I ultimately bought.
They also helped me figure out what repairs would be needed and find an excellent contractor. They dealt very competently and professionally with frustrating problems that arose (on the seller's side) during the closing.
Erin and Jane are also two of the nicest and smartest women I've met - and tough negotiators as well. Having a two-person team on my side was great. I recommend them highly.
September 1 2014
Jane and Erin are amazing! They helped me find a great apartment is precisely the location that I wanted to be in. When it came time to close, they handled all of the paperwork, negotiation, and related matters adeptly, saving me a good amount of money on the margins. I'd definitely recommend them to anyone looking to buy a home in Austin.

From the moment we met Jane Hume, it was clear that she was in our corner and wasn't going to stop until she had us all moved in to a first home that fit all our wish list fantasies -- as challenging as our criteria were -- and celebrating with us at our housewarming party. With persistence, gentle pressure, and tons of personality, Jane made the process of buying a home in this competitive Austin market not only fun but virtually painless, propping us up when we started to despair about finding that "unicorn" of a 3/2 under $400K with at least 1/4 acre in the '04. And WE DID IT!
There were hiccups along the way, from our offer to our closing, but Jane shielded us from the stress and made it feel smooth as a cowboy two-steppin' with a sorority girl at the Broken Spoke on a Thursday night -- not a single one of the nightmare house hunting stories we were expecting from all our years of hearing about our friends' home buying adventures. Every single one of her recommendations and referrals, from the wonderful team of inspectors at Property Doctors to our home warranty company, turned out to add to our confidence and save us money in the process.
As business executives, my husband and I also really appreciate people who value long-term relationships, and we love that Jane has continued to check in on us, sharing news about our neighborhood with us and sending us info about how to join the homeowners association, among other helpful hints. We didn't stop being her clients at the closing, rather even a week later when our move was in full swing Jane stopped by with a super sweet housewarming gift that proved beyond a shadow of a doubt that she had really listened to us along the way and knew our tastes and values and personalities like an old family friend. Thanks to Jane, we don't have even one iota of buyers remorse and are already living the dream we dreamed of Austin living when we moved here from Boston in 2013.

Jane did a great job. She had use back the entire time. She was very thorough and on top of things. I never met Erin, but could tell she was a strong part of the team.

We closed on our house in Cedar Park last week, and let me tell you... we feel SO lucky to have found Erin and Jane! They have been absolute joys to work with through the whole process.
We are new to the area and didn't know much about Austin. Erin and Jane gave us phenomenal tours of the neighborhoods and were able to pinpoint the best areas for us with school-age children. They really took the time to understood our needs and find us the right home. They truly care about their customers and go the extra mile to help them make the best decision.
When it came time to execute on the sale and closing process, they were extremely responsive to any and all of our questions... and we had a lot! They were proactive in ensuring we were up to speed with what was going on in the process and advocated for us at every turn.
We thank them for a wonderful experience and look forward to our continued friendship with them. They are both very special people. We are glad to have found them at Realty Austin.
January 1 2014
My wife and I think the world of Erin Rost and Jane Hume. We would recommend them to anyone looking for a home in Austin. As our agents, they educated us, guided us, recommended us, kept us constantly informed, and accommodated us with all our needs. Not knowledgeable at all about the Austin area, we asked a lot of questions and tried a lot of things that they truly guided us through. Their exemplary service resulted in our purchase of a home that fit our budget and needs. Their recommendations, follow through, and personal attention to our needs were over the top and exceeded all of our expectations.
We realize that much of what they had done for us was due to the concerted efforts that Realty Austin was supporting them with. With that said we would like to thank all of Realty Austin for supporting Erin and Jane in finding the property that we were looking for.

We started working with Jane and Erin in April of 2012. They have been so patient with our needs, which were, to say, rapidly evolving. We appreciated their time and energy to cart us all over Austin in the hunt for the ideal property. Kudos to their support and leg work as we would quite often give her a list of MLS listings we were interested in viewing en route to properties!
Ultimately we found the perfect property, entering them into a harrowing several month experience with a nasty listing agent (and similar seller) from another brokerage. Thank goodness for their perseverance and upbeat attitude to ensure we always were handled with dignity. They were always on top of their game between balance our calls/ texts/ emails in coordination with responses of the opposing broker.
We loved working with Jane and Erin and consider them to be a friends whom we will always treasure. You are very lucky to have such a great team representing Realty Austin! Should we ever be in the market again, we would only work with Jane and Erin.

We were so lucky to discover Jane and Erin! Back when moving to Austin was just an idea, they introduced us to town and drove us through different neighborhoods for hours—knowing we might move to Dallas. After we selected Austin, they listened to what we wanted (and didn’t want), knew all the properties and laws, and explained how the market worked. Team Jane and Erin made it their priority to find what we wanted. Having a team was great because one of them was always available to help. Without their guidance, we would have lost out on homes, because, in this market, homes get multiple offers in one day. Yet, we never felt rushed. We highly recommend Jane and Erin and will do business with them in the future. But we’d rather not move away from our new-found friends.

Brian and I think Jane and Erin make a great team. They were totally responsive to our many questions and both fun to work with. We would not hesitate to recommend them to buyers and sellers, and are glad the Realtors in Santa Fe gave us their names. All good wishes!
