Why We Love Heyday


We created Heyday with the purpose of providing fellow agents with everything that we found lacking during our time on other teams and at different brokerages - a fun, people-centered culture in which everyone is valued equally and encouraged to grow their business their way; a diverse and collaborative team that is truly all for one and one for all; and, a focused, business orientation that includes time-tested resources, processes, and systems to help our agents and their clients shine brightly. We mean it when we say that Heyday is different by design!

    Being a part of Heyday since its founding has given me such an appreciation for this special group of agents and our leadership team. It’s rare to find a team of people with similar goals, values, and a commitment to creating deep and lasting relationships. Team members are always eager to offer help and advice, and the support staff works hard to identify the needs of agents and respond with thoughtful solutions. Heyday's resources, systems, and processes, which are the result of the entire team's input and collaboration, are laser-focused on helping make my job as an agent more efficient, productive, and fulfilling.

    I joined Heyday to learn from and be inspired by the ambition and energy of this amazing group of top agents who all share remarkably high standards for client service, integrity and work ethic. I also find tremendous value in the support roles, business systems and marketing assets that Heyday provides that save me tons of time and allow me to focus on what matters most for growing my business. Plus, we just generally love working together and I believe that together we are greater than the sum of our parts!

I value being able to give back to the community through Affordable Central Texas and enjoy being part of something bigger and even more impactful.

    After 15 years in Austin real estate, making a move to another team was a big decision, but Heyday made that decision easy. The main qualities I looked for were integrity and experience, which Heyday has in spades. I believe surrounding yourself professionally with colleagues who inspire you and collaborate closely together elevates everyone and provides the best experience for our clients. Heyday is a reflection of my core values as an agent and being a part of the team allows me to advance my career surrounded by the best of the best.

    What Our Clients Say

    The Heyday Group
    First of all, Meredith goes above and beyond any realtor I have known and or have worked with. She was referred to me through a family member that also works for Compass out of state and we were only looking to see if we liked Austin. She spent a large part of the day showing my daughter and I around town. Then showed us parts of town we may like and schools as well. Once we found a place she was so great at helping us and especially being that we lived in NJ. Even after we closed on our house she continued to be of service by running over to the house to help me out with deliveries and shutters/closet recommendations! She really stepped in as a liaison for me and will recommend her to anyone that is interested in purchasing a home!
    Celeste M.
    The Heyday Group
    Lisa gets it and gets it done. She's a master of her craft - a highly knowledgeable agent who can go deep on the specifics of your needs wearing many hats on the buyer journey. In our case, she was also a couple's therapist helping us identify and align on what we wanted, an advocate for our kid recognizing pros and cons of home structures or locations with a young child, and generally sensed the kind of people we are and things we want in our next life chapter. She advocated on our behalf, was readily available, and was a consistent, reliable partner. She has a dash of altruism with her approach where I believe she truly wants her buyers to be happy. You're lucky if you have the opportunity to work with Lisa!
    Mindy L.
    The Heyday Group
    Lisa is passionate about real estate, houses and the people whom she works with. When Lisa helped me sell my house, I felt supported, appreciated, heard and was able to smile and laugh my way through the experience with her. She is a woman of impeccable integrity and kept me informed, was direct and honest throughout the process. I highly recommend partnering with her on your real estate transactions.
    Carey D.
    The Heyday Group
    I can't say enough good things about working with Anna to purchase a home in Austin. Her knowledge of the Austin market is second to none and she is able to navigate complicated transactions (including investment properties) without hassle so that you never have to worry about a thing! I recommend her to everyone, especially people who are new to the area. She's a total pro and you'll love working with her!
    Chrisiane W.
    The Heyday Group
    Jill is an outstanding, caring real estate professional who is dedicated to helping her clients reach their goals. While helping us land a property a few years ago, she was always so cool and collected while navigating our deal through the ins-and-outs of the transaction. She kept us so calm and positive and, thinking on all of it, she made the process FUN! Who can say that about a real estate deal? We definitely can. Working with such a great person like Jill made all the difference!
    Rodney J.
    The Heyday Group
    Miranda is an amazing realtor. She has her finger on the Austin pulse - she knows the market well, she understands houses and renovations (hugely helpful when you've got lots of people trying to flip homes at the lowest cost), and is an expert negotiator. Very flexible, patient and understanding of our changing needs. She goes above and beyond what the average realtor provides - she even had a list of preferred vendors she works with when it came time to upgrade a few things in our house. She was a huge reason why we were able to relocate to Austin from California so easily and quickly. I recommend her to everyone and anyone!

    • The Heyday Group
      As first-time homebuyers, coming from out of state, looking in the most competitive market in the country and during a pandemic that restricted our ability to see homes in person Tina was invaluable in finding the home of our dreams! She went above and beyond to set up virtual showings, track down pre-market homes, and hound sellers to advocate for her buyers. We landed the home we were always looking for, all while being below the top offer, which I know would never have been possible without Tina's guidance!
      Colin M.
    • The Heyday Group
      Jill was invaluable to our house hunt! She diligently evaluated our needs and patiently guided us through a number of walk-throughs until we found the perfect home. She is very well informed and provided essential guidance throughout the process, from the initial search through closing.
      Andrew H.
    • The Heyday Group
      We cannot thank Claire enough for helping us find and lease our current house. House hunting in a competitive market like Austin is never easy, but working with Claire made the process stress-free. Her warm, friendly personality made us feel comfortable instantly and it was clear she understood our needs from the very first meeting. We are grateful to Claire for all of her hard work and patience. She was very communicative, easy to reach and responsive. Claire made herself available to show us a listing any time, even during 100-degree weather. She even made multiple trips to the same property in the same day because we couldn’t coordinate our schedules. Claire’s professionalism and attention to detail were evident throughout the entire process. Especially while completing the paperwork and negotiating with the owner’s agent. It was such a pleasure working with Claire. With her positive attitude and help, we were able to find a wonderful house in the location we wanted. We highly recommend using reaching out to her with any of your real estate needs.
