Leah Gay Roustan
Leah Gay Roustan was born and raised in Austin, Texas. She graduated from Anderson High School and attended the University of Texas in Austin. She moved to South Padre Island in 2005, started working in short term vacation rentals in 2010, and earned her real estate license in 2012.
While in South Padre Island she sat as chair for the membership committee for the South Padre Island Board of REALTORS® (SPIBOR) where she planned meetings, speakers, sponsors, education on current events, TREC changes and other important information. She also represented South Padre Island as the Texas REALTOR® Director, attending state conferences and representing her area regarding real estate issues in the state of Texas. She was voted 2020 REALTOR® of the Year by SPIBOR. She is looking forward to being actively involved in the Austin Board of REALTORS®.
After 12 years in real estate, Leah has come to love the whole process – the looking, finding, negotiating and closing. Leah is not afraid to get in the trenches with her clients. She believes once you start the process, you are a team, and she is invested in your transaction like it was her very own.
Leah is happy to be back in her hometown and working at Dochen REALTORS®. She has known the Dochen’s since she was 4 years old, so she knew she shared the same values as Carol Dochen, who is professional, fair and ethical – not to mention a force in the Austin real estate market. She is excited to learn and grow with the team at Dochen REALTORS®.
Leah is married to Fabian and they have two kids, Lillian and Hunter. Leah is fluent in Spanish (her husband if from Vera Cruz, Mexico) and she LOVES the culture and the language. Her daughter was recently diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes and she is passionate about being her advocate and voice on the difficult journey. You can catch Leah enjoying Austin at Farmer’s markets, The Thinkery, Central Market’s playground, walking the greenbelt or eating County Line BBQ.
Leah took me Everywhere - no stone unturned until we found just the right place.
We have 4 properties in which Leah has represented us as a Buyer's Agent for 3 of them. Leah is very resourceful especially for clients like us who are not from the area. Leah is very attentive to the details. She makes it a point to learn her client preferences and apply it accordingly when searching for possible site, stay within budget, negotiating, etc. Communication is key to a successful transaction. Leah is very timely and on point with all communications throughout the buying process. I would strongly recommend Leah to all that are looking for property in the area.
Leah stayed on top of things and did a very good job of getting our property sold.
Leah is very patient. Purchasing a condo during a pandemic presented its own set of challenges on top of the challenges of our busy and often chaotic lifestyle. Which I'm sure caused her to question our intent but she was patient, kind and never pushy or tried to hurry us through the process. Thank you, Leah for all the help and we are very happy with our new condo.
Leah has handled 3 real estate transactions for us. She understands the market and explains things in a way that helps us to make good decisions. Leah handles everything in a very professional manner. Our closings were seamless.
We were recently a seller in a transaction in which Leah represented the buyer. From day one, we were impressed by Leah and her follow through and consistent communication throughout the transaction. She was very responsive and always available for questions we had. We were very impressed when we told her the closing date conflicted with a trip we had scheduled and she was able to jump on it and helped coordinate the transaction closing which allowed us to successfully meet our scheduled trip deadline. We highly recommend Leah based on her excellent service, competency, hustle, and knowledge of the local market.
