Leah Petri, a longtime luxury agent at Austin’s Gottesman Residential Real Estate, believes in the power of connection.

As an Austin native and a graduate of Westlake High School, Leah is closely connected to the community. She is married to a sixth-generation Austinite and Westlake grad, Chris Petri. Leah also is closely connected to Austin’s business community, having worked in the corporate world at Dell Technologies for over 12 years. These ties and experience help Leah connect relocating executives with ideal properties and enable her to bring her clients up to speed on all things Austin efficiently. Leah’s deep connections in Austin pay off for her clients. She helps them find the right home in the right neighborhood, enabling clients to settle where there’s easy access to grocery stores, high-quality schools, and an array of community amenities.

And as a residential real estate professional in the Austin area since 2010, Leah is closely connected to the region’s homebuilders and architects, and — most notably — to the needs of home buyers and home sellers. On top of that, the connections and relationships she’s built and maintained in Austin’s broker community equip her with the latest insights into the local real estate market.

Leah taps into her strong connections to deliver access to “coming soon” and private-market homes, rather than waiting for them to come on the public market. She helps sellers prepare properties to garner top dollar and put their best foot forward with a well-vetted extended team, including but not limited to surveyors, photographers, painters, stagers, floor plan professionals, marketing materials and custom financial analysis to execute optimal list price. Above all, she consistently demonstrates her passion for matching the right homes with the right clients, whether they’re buyers or sellers. Leah backs up her well-connected knowledge of Austin’s real estate market with impressive results for her clients.
