“When it comes to Austin real estate, who you work with makes all the difference,” says Gottesman Residential Real Estate’s Alaina Martin, a powerhouse luxury REALTOR® who helps newcomers and seasoned Austinites alike navigate housing options, including premarket opportunities. Gottesman Residential specializes in curating the finest homes for every lifestyle, which is made possible by an elevated real estate experience from start to finish. “We hold ourselves to a higher standard,” says Martin. Utilizing industry-specific knowledge, networking abilities, and a diligent work ethic, she shines as a crucial component of Gottesman Residential’s unparalleled, highly collaborative team.

A Westlake resident and Lake Austin wake surfing enthusiast, Martin stays deeply dialed into the local scene. “I’m passionate about the Austin lifestyle and all that comes with it,” she says. Native to Kansas but with extended family that hails from a small Texas town, she always pictured herself down south before she relocated to Austin by way of New York City in 2016.

“We’re seeing the market recalibrate and return to normal. It’s a great time to buy in Austin,” says Martin, who shares her expertise as the host of national television show The American Dream, which highlights real estate and lifestyle. When she isn’t guiding clients, Martin is a busy mom who still finds time to wake surf, travel, and serve her community through nonprofits including Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Texas. “Austin isn’t just a city; it’s a community,” she says. “There’s nowhere else I’d rather live.”
