Leah grew up in the real estate industry. She began training as an appraiser and realtor assistant under her Uncle Sid, who was a successful real estate professional in Southern Arkansas. Upon graduating college with honors in 2003, she relocated to Austin and moved up quickly within the mortgage industry eventually serving as the Texas Regional Marketing Coordinator for a national mortgage company through 2007. She then transitioned to a closing coordinator role and the pleasure of helping people make their dreams of homeownership come true fit her personality and passion perfectly.
Leah met her amazing husband, Josh, in the piney wood of Southern Arkansas and they relocated to Austin together. They adore Austin, Texas and the people they meet and work with each day! If you keep an eye out, you will spot the active couple and their son all over town, from the soccer fields of Crestview to the hike and bike trail of Ladybird Lake. In her downtime, Leah enjoys yoga, volunteering with local organizations such as Mobile Loaves and Fishes and catching live music across town and across genres.
Most recently she has served as the Transaction Manager for a luxury Austin broker where her focus was everything from marketing and listing assistance to closing coordination. Leah says she owes her thorough understanding of residential real estate to the amazing people she has had the pleasure of working with along the way.
Leah’s experience, keen eye for detail and sensitivity to clients’ needs has been essential as she has helped families, investors and first time home buyers through the home sell and purchase processes. She believes that knowledge and patience, as well as integrity, are a must in this industry. As a Closing Coordinator at Realty Austin, Leah’s passion for the details and client service is evident in all of her work.
Leah Schimberg, our closing coordinator, was amazing! She was so helpful about making sure we were keeping up to date with the process. And making sure we understood what was going on. And even called the home warranty company to check on something for me which I thought was wonderful! She is a great asset!
Leah Schimberg is an AMAZING closing coordinator. Leah communicated with us practically daily and always answered emails and phone calls quickly. The information on timelines and helpful information that Leah sent was invaluable.
Barrett and Leah were AMAZING!! We felt very informed about the entire home buying process and have even been able to help some of our friends through the process with the knowledge we gained from Barrett. Leah was an amazing resource and able to help us with setting up everything to get the closing done efficiently and stress-free.
Barrett and Leah are the absolute best! Barrett helped us find our very first home. He made the process so easy & fun! He took the time to explain so many things we had questions about & was so patient. He truly cares about his clients which is why he is the best at what he does. Leah was always on top of things, also answering our many questions, giving us all the info we needed and reminding us of deadlines! Simply amazing! If you want a great experience in the search of your new home, I HIGHLY recommend the team! You can't go wrong with them!!
Rita and Leah are THE BEST TEAM you could have on your side. My S.O. and I sold a duplex and bought two new houses all at once. No doubt stressful, right? Nope! Not with those two on your side!! I was given all the info I needed exactly before I needed it. And Rita was available every time I had a question. I love this team!
