Donna is one of those rare “Native Austinite’s”, raised in Westlake Hills, and now specializing in Lake Travis Waterfront properties.  Donna began her career in 1981 in Dallas, Texas specializing in commercial real estate sales and leasing.  After the real estate crash Donna returned home to the Hill Country in 1987 and settled in the Briarcliff area of Lake Travis and started her own company “Austin Lakeside Properties”, waterfront vacation rentals and sales at Whitecliff Condominiums.

As the founding Broker/Owner of Austin Lakeside Properties, Donna dedicates herself to building lifetime relationships with her clients and building on personal service, one client at a time. Her son Will Garrison has followed her path and is now the Broker Owner of Austin Lakeside Properties.

Lake Travis Enthusiast! On the Water-Whenever Possible! Donna enjoys boating and skiing with her husband of 30 years, Curtis. Curtis works for Cypress Semiconductor and still skis every week with the Pedernales Outlaw Ski Team.  Donna and Curtis are also certified P.A.D.I. divers and enjoy vacationing in tropical locations.  Last year in 2017 Donna and Curtis completed a long time dream of developing Austin Lakeside Boat & RV Storage on Pace Bend Road and will complete Phase II this year!  They are looking forward to 3rd Quarter Adventures making lifetime memories in the new RV with kids, grand-kids and friends!

100% Commitment to You! I am committed to offering you high quality personal service, not only for this transaction, but for a lifetime. I build these lifetime relationships, one client at a time. I represent People not Property.
