When Eileen was in high school she noticed that people would often say, “Ask Eileen, she knows everything”. But she knew she didn’t really, so after navigating through the course schedule for a few years to find the most interesting classes the University of Texas had to offer, she eventually graduated with degrees in Art History and Asian Studies.
After a little more meandering, Eileen finally found herself in a successful career in radio marketing in Austin which eventually led to her making her mark on the music business in NYC. Career tracks in the worlds of tech and entertainment marketing followed soon after but Eileen truly craved a vocation that helped real people, something that would give her a sense of gratification. After pondering her loves–design, houses and architecture, she briefly considered a degree in architecture, but decided that three more years of school was indeed not what she was craving. Instead she decided to get her real estate license and connect people with houses they love, in a city that has everything to offer.
Immediately she was successful–a top producer working hard to help people find their dream homes in Austin. Soon after, she was also helping people sell their homes, the place they loved most, to perhaps find a new home or just move on. She found that she was really good–no great– at this. All of the years spent marketing musicians, widgets, and other companies’ services combined with the stress of contracts and tight time lines all fed into her immediate success as a Realtor®.

What People Are Saying About Eileen
“We had always rented until we moved back to Austin from New York at age 35, wide-eyed with how much house we could afford here. Driving along 360, my husband said he wished we could live out there. I said we could never afford it. Eileen showed us otherwise. She showed us neighborhoods we never would have discovered. Then, once she quickly nailed our style and showed us the house we never knew we wanted, she held our hand through the entire buying process and prompted us on the right questions to ask. To this day, if we have a question about anything real estate related, we ask Eileen. She seriously knows her stuff.” – Stefani Zellmer and Chris Davis
Eileen Gill, the broker in this agency is the best buyer’s agent I’ve encountered in 40 years of buying houses. The Austin real estate market is crazy and we went through 2 other agents trying to buy a house. Neither one of them wanted to spend the time finding what we wanted. They just wanted us to buy something fast so they could move on. Eileen took the time to find out what we wanted and showed us a lot of properties to get a good idea of what we wanted. She never lost her desire to work for us. When we found the house we wanted she helped us put together an innovative offer that got us the house in a 5 offer competition on the second day of the listing. She knows Austin well and gives great advice and guidance.
