Get to know Shawn Rooker
Shawn is originally from Boston, but he migrated to Austin about 12 years ago in search of the sunny, active lifestyle. He grew up in Plymouth, MA, “America’s Hometown.” Plymouth, Boston, and Austin; what a combination of Big city style and Small town living! Happily married since 2006, Shawn has a wonderfully supportive wife and an energetically inquisitive daughter. His wife, a citizen of both Mexico and the United States, is both his creative director and his trusted advisor. Every day he has new reasons to be proud of his daughter, just ask him! Don’t forget his two loyal dogs. He has definitely found the Good Life!
What do they do for fun? His wife, Diana, is from Monterrey, Mexico, and Shawn has embraced her culture completely! They love to cook together, and every week they take on a “cooking assignment” to try something new. Their style ranges from wine and appetizers, to barbecue and beer over a soccer game. You might find them at the park with their daughter Sophia, who loves piggy-back rides, playing in the water, and hopping (her preferred mode of travel!) Austin is just a great mix of technological sophistication, live music, and family-friendly fun. Such variety inspires progress! Shawn is just as comfortable discussing philosophy as he is reading his daughter a book. Austin is definitely the place for them!
What does Shawn bring to the table? Integrity, hard work, and reliability; “Intestinal Fortitude” as it applies to the business world. These are habits that are grown through practice and application. Just ask him to tell you stories about the US Army’s Ranger School. He is no stranger to getting the job done. How does he feel about his career? Real estate agents are more than property salespeople, they are advocates. “I don’t sell houses, I help people achieve the things they want in life.” Buying or selling a home is one of the most important transactions in a person’s life. That transaction is a “tough in the trenches” yet “handle with care” operation. On a basic level he knows what it takes to make these transactions come to a worthwhile result: and that is the relationships behind them. Truly, authenticity and integrity are what it takes to be successful in any business that is built on relationships.
