Even though I grew up in Dallas, I was born here in Austin and I always knew that I would come back. I am currently a sophomore Finance major interested in a career in Real Estate or Finance, or both! In my free time I enjoy hanging out with friends and exploring this awesome city. You also might see me at Gregory Gym; I’m an avid pick-up basketball fan and I try to play a few times a week. I’ve loved working as an agent so far because it’s given me the opportunity to meet tons of amazing people who I never would’ve interacted with if it wasn’t for this job. We all know that the process of finding a place to live in Austin can be very stressful. My job is to take all that stress away and make it a fun and exciting process, as it should be! Please feel free to reach out, I am willing and happy to assist you!

I grew up in Dallas and knew from a young age that I wanted to attend UT Austin. I love the university, the people, the vibes, and the culture, and couldn’t imagine a better place to spend my college years. I am currently in my third year and expecting to graduate in May of 2022 with a degree in Finance, with a concentration in Investment Management and Banking. Since coming to UT, I’ve been a part of numerous organizations including the Longhorn Band and Phi Mu Alpha Sinfonia, and enjoy playing sports and video games in my free time. As a Leasing Agent, I take pride in being able to help my friends and acquaintances find a place to live and creating the peace of mind that college students generally don’t have when searching for housing.

Hi everyone! My name is Caroline Kane and I’m currently a student at UT Austin studying Sustainability Studies.

Born and raised in East Texas, I had a feeling that Austin would be a unique environment where I could thrive as a student and person. I began my college education with a major in Biology in hopes of becoming an Orthodontist later down the line. Recently, however, I’ve shifted my focus towards a career in Medical Law. Some of my hobbies include tennis, hanging out with my fraternity, making music, and enjoying the outdoors. I found out about Housing Scout through my current employer, Miller Gill, who reached out to me through Lambda Chi Alpha. I became licensed over the summer of 2019 and passed my Texas Real Estate Exam with flying colors. Currently, my main goal in college is to make lifelong memories and set myself up for success through hard work and valuable professional experiences such as Housing Scout.

I am Quincy and I love that I get to call Austin my home. Originally from Lubbock, TX I was thrilled for the opportunity to move to Austin and pursue a Marketing Degree from the McCombs School of Business. I am super passionate about design, photography, investments, and any sports I can find on television (literally any)! Austin has been so much fun to live in and brought me lots of adventure because there are so many cool spots to explore. I would love to help you find a place that allows you to call this awesome city home too! Let me know what you are looking for and I’ll ensure that the house-hunting process is seamless for you!

Growing up in Dallas, The University of Texas at Austin was the clear and obvious choice for where I wanted to attend college. After starting a small graphic design t-shirt company in high school, I thought that business was the best possible track to further my entrepreneurial endeavors. Therefore, I have recently declared as a Finance Major with a focus in Real Estate at the McCombs School of Business. In my free time, I enjoy listening to music, watching movies, and just hanging out with friends. I also love discussing philosophy and politics, so always feel free to express your mind if you see me. With Austin being so vibrant and ever-growing, acting as a Leasing Agent is more exciting than ever. I cannot wait to assist you in the search for finding the perfect fit, and if you ever have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to reach out!

Ryan Gomillion

My name is Ryan Gomillion and I am from a small town in the Texas Hill Country called Boerne, where I graduated from Boerne Champion High School. After spending a year at UTSA, I transferred here to UT and have been loving every second of it. I studied Ancient History at UT! When I'm not working you can find me on the soccer field or at one of the amazing restaurants or parks that Austin has to offer. 

I became interested in the Real Estate industry in Austin after going through my own first leasing process. I had almost no idea what to do, but luckily, a helpful agent reached out to me and guided me to my very first apartment. I knew after that that I wanted to help people and especially students in the same way! 
Austin has so much to offer and UT is a wonderful school to be at, but I know that organizing living situations can be daunting and stressful. I would like nothing more than to help take that stress away and use my locating skills to find your next place to live. If you wish to find a property suited to your tastes, or have any questions, please feel free to contact me!

Having lived in Austin for 14 years, I am no stranger to the neighborhoods of this bustling city. My appreciation for Austin grew immensely once I began attending The University of Texas at Austin majoring in Electrical and Computer Engineering. One of my favorite aspects of UT is the diversity and uniqueness it carries, paralleling that of Austin. I love embracing Austin’s eccentric culture, usually through the means of exploring local restaurants. The opportunity to work as a Licensed Real Estate Agent for Housing Scout seemed like it was made for me given my crazed fascination with HGTV. I find joy in easing the process for students in finding ideal housing amid their, no doubt, busy schedule. My other passions include dancing, being outdoors, animals, and spending time with friends and family. Austin is growing at an incredible rate, making it perfectly accommodating for people of all walks of life. Don’t hesitate to text, call, or email me at any time as I’d love to help you find your housing match!
