Carla Umlauf is a second generation Austinite and is highly involved in the culture, business and development of this city. Her success as one of Austin’s best Realtors® is grounded in her market expertise, strength of her network and her discerning eye. In 2016, Carla was named as one of Austin’s 10 Most Power Women by Austin Way Magazine and her list of designations and credentials are listed below.
The foundation of Carla’s success is a relentless work ethic, knowledge of residential construction & design, strong negotiation skills and an extensive network of friends and colleagues. She strives to give each client honest advice and personalized attention and takes pride in her platinum level of customer service and attention to detail on each transaction. Needless to say, the majority of her business stems from repeat and referral clientele.
Carla received her Bachelor’s Degree in Social Work from the University of Texas at Austin. As a Child Protective Services social worker, Carla worked first hand with families and various agencies to help children escape abuse and neglect. This taught her the importance of crisis management, ethics, confidentiality, negotiation, and navigating a complex network of professionals and organizations.
Carla is proud of her family’s long tradition of giving back to the Austin community. In 1985, her grandparents, Charles and Angie Umlauf, donated their home, artist studio, and acreage above Barton Springs to the City of Austin and founded the Umlauf Sculpture Garden and Museum. Carla continues to honor her grandparents’ legacy by serving on the non-profit’s Board of Trustees. She works with the City of Austin and the Parks and Recreation Department to promote the operation of the Umlauf Sculpture Garden and Museum nonprofit.
Married to local architect, Cass Cheesar, they are fortunate to have careers that naturally intermesh and often times share clients who need both skill sets. Carla’s knowledge of construction and design is almost instinctive and she has an impressive list of connections in the building and architectural community of which she regularly shares with her clients – making her a strong resource even after closing on your home.
