Every Home Has a Story Including 11512 Tin Cup Dr #301

Real Estate Agent with Coldwell Banker Realty ~ 512.750.6899

Real estate often comes full circle. This townhome was the beginning of a new chapter for my son, John and I, as he headed into high school in 1990 (my daughter Melissa was headed to UT). I was starting a new career in real estate as a single mom and even though this was smaller than our home it kept John and I connected to our circle of friends, John at the same school and rent was cheap!


I rented four years as I got a sure footing in Real Estate. I met my Geno, we married and built a home in 1994.  I listed this townhome, it sold to a friend for their mom. When the house came on the market again Melissa helped a friend purchase for her mom and when it was time for her mom to move Melissa listed the townhome in March 2022!  I represented the buyer and once again our family closed on #301 Tin Cup Drive.

It's brought back a lot of memories ~ this was a springboard for our family during a time of transition and we talk often about our days on 11512 Tin Cup Dr #301! Every home has a story and often a new chapter for people. This is where our story started and has continued right up to today's closing.

I serve our clients by arming them with strong market knowledge and seasoned experience. Curious about what your home is worth? Nervous about the market? Let me see how I can help You!!

Hi Dorie Dillard Austin TX 


What a storied history this condo has on Tin Cup Dr.  The video is very special as well.  Not many get to sell their home, over, and over.  It truly is a family affair.

That home has a great story but what I really want to know is whether or not you attended the Cyber Rodeo?

Dorie Dillard Austin TX

No I did not....had 2 closings and just got back from Italy Brian England so Cyber Rodeo was not even on my radar.
