Dated: September 13 2023
Robyn Awand is a highly distinguished individual in the real estate sector, holding several industry certifications and designations, including an Accredited Buyer's Representative (ABR), Short Sales and Foreclosure Resource (SFR), and is a Seniors Real Estate Specialist (SRES). Having established her flourishing career in the late 1990s, Robyn’s journey began within a Non-Profit Rural Housing agency, providing grants for homeowners needing rehabilitation assistance. Around the same period, she took the initiative to acquire her real estate license and the rest became history from that moment forward.
Notably, Robyn Awand has an impressive track record of working hard to fulfill professional roles, such as becoming the Director of a Homeownership Center, funded by local sponsors and Neighborworks America. By the year 2000 Robyn had received her Brokers license and still holds an active Brokers License in New York to this day. Her diligent and well-sought-after training comes from renowned institutions such as Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, and USDA, in loan origination. Over her career, Robyn has assisted over 200 buyers to achieve their homeownership dreams and proudly ran the second largest Section 8 to Homeownership program in all of New York State.
Robyn’s journey eventually brought her to Texas where she has spent the last 14 years as an esteemed real estate agent. “When the Broker I was working with made a change in the company, I decided to look for another Agency. I knew Kori (former owner of NextHome on the Coast) from where I lived and in some transactions over the years. I thought I could work well with her. I was right.”, Robyn added, and hasn’t looked back ever since.
Awand particularly loves working with buyers in the real estate industry and finds a sense of joy in helping her clients find their perfect property as well as skillfully executing negotiations. Robyn keeps herself atop of industry trends and changes by regularly reviewing the local MLS, TREC, and performing market analyses, albeit she also enjoys self-paced online classes. Alongside Robyn’s thorough understanding of the entire negotiation process from start to finish, giving her all to those she works with is but one of many admirable attributes that sets Robyn apart from other agents in the field, allowing her to gracefully and professionally operate within her areas of expertise.
Well-acquainted with her working area, Robyn enjoys local hotspots such as Laguna Vista, SPI, and Bayview, Texas. However, beyond her thriving real estate career, you can find Robyn playing golf a few days a week or cherishing her time spent knitting and basket weaving. All of these qualities and more are just a small part of what makes Robyn not just a special real estate agent, but also a wonderful person to get to know in the local South Padre Island community.
