Austin Cooper, DRE# 02088958

With a background in nonprofit management and client services, Austin is a connector when it comes to pairing individuals with services and products. That experience transfers well to the real estate industry. “I bought my first house a couple years ago and that was a special experience for me. So special that I decided to build my own career in real estate so I can offer that same experience and level of service to my own clients.” Rooted in Sacramento, Austin is no stranger to the different neighborhoods and deep culture that his favorite city has to offer!
