Marcia Pastrana

Founder,, Real Estate Professional and Esquire
Marcia is a native Austinite who has her pulse on the Circle C and Legend Oaks neighborhoods and surrounding Southwest Austin / Barton Creek locales. With almost 20 years of real estate experience coupled with a legal degree from the University of Texas, Marcia uses her Southern charm and razor-sharp mind to communicate and negotiate for her clients in their best interests.

When working with Marcia, you can be confident your dollars will make sense whether buying, selling, or both. All the legalese of Codes, Covenants, and Restrictions, Deed Restrictions, Purchase and Selling Agreements, and more will be efficiently explained by Marcia in a way you can be assured you know every aspect of the home buying and selling process.

Born in Austin and raised in Westlake Hills, Marcia has grown in her wisdom as Austin has grown in size. She knows all the hidden treasures and local charms of Southwest Austin & Barton Creek. Her father, who has owned four pharmacies in Austin spanning over four decades, gave Marcia her first taste of business and customer relations. After graduating from Westlake High School, she stayed in Austin to attend the University of Texas for her undergraduate in finance, then continuing to obtain her law degree also at UT.

With her childhood and teen years focused on business, collegiate understanding in finance, and ten years of practicing law before switching to real estate in 1999 to afford her more time to raise her only child, Marcia covers all the bases you should look for in finding a real estate agent to help you with one of the biggest purchases you make in your lifetime.

Marcia’s not only a real estate phenomenon in aiding the purchases of 400 homes in Circle C alone and being part of a team which sold $20 million in real estate in 2016 (over $240 million sold since 2000!), but she is also an outstanding person in her personal life. She supports various children and animal charities because as she says “they rely on the honesty, protection, support and good nature from humans to survive”. Her love for children and animals is closely akin to her love of cooking and her fondness for the arts and nature. By the way, Marcia makes a mean frittata!

Marcia is a great realtor.  Experienced, professional, organized, knowledgeable.  She is persistent and follows up on the details until the transaction is completed.  She noticed roof issues that the inspector missed and saved me $$$.  I will definitely use her in the future.
