I really enjoy helping people and I treat your needs as though they were my own. I’ve been in real estate for over twelve years; first in commercial and later, residential, because that’s where I found sincere satisfaction. For me, there is no better feeling than knowing that I played a key role in helping others sell their home so that they can move forward or by helping them find their dream home.
I specialize in the Northwest Austin, Cedar Park, Georgetown, and Round Rock areas but never hesitate to step outside of those parameters to help those in need of quality real estate service and skill.
I have my BBA, am a native Texan and have lived in the Austin area for over 15 years and I LOVE it here. When I can find the time, I enjoy volunteer work, kayaking, trail bike riding, hiking, my rescued pups, equestrian activities, photography and my family.

Keeping Austin Beautiful — July 25, 2010 —
Williams & Assoc. recently sponsored a beautiful garden plot on the hike and bike trail as part of the Lady Bird Johnson Adopt-a-Garden program. The program, put on by Austin’s own The Trail Foundation, allows Austin Area businesses and organizations to assume responsibility for a run-down section of the Hike and Bike trail.
Williams & Assoc. agents and friends donned work gloves and bug spray, gathered gardening materials and headed to the Butler Shores Raised Garden on Sunday, July 25th. Under the sweltering rays of a hot July sun, the Williams & Assoc. crew worked together to clean brush, till the garden, and plant fresh, native, self-sustaining plants.
Among the tireless workers were Williams & Assoc. founder and broker, Scott Williams, massage therapist Michelle Metzler, Williams & Assoc. residential agent John White, HandsOnAustin founder Lauren Fields, and Williams & Assoc. supporters: Amanda Wallace, Dobri Dyulgerov, Cally Martin, and Rick Barrow. The team worked hard and it paid off! The garden sparkles for runners, tourists and the like enjoying the Austin hike and bike trail. Williams & Assoc. is proud to be a Green Broker who contributes to the beauty of this wonderful city!
“I’m so proud to work with Williams & Assoc. on helping to keep our city clean and beautiful. It only takes a little effort to keep the city clean of trash, and looking great!” Lauren Fields, HandsOnAustin founder
“Sometimes it just feels good to get your hands dirty and help clean up!” Amanda Wallace, Williams & Assoc. supporter
W&A Volunteers for It's My Park Day — March 06, 2010 —
A message from William Fraser
It’s My Park Day Volunteers,
Thank you for volunteering your time at Auditorium Shores at Town Lake Park on Saturday, March 6, 2010. We had 45 volunteers from the community and 10 members from PARD staff there to give back to the park we all love.
In total, your time spent in the park provide 193 hours of much needed labor. Your time in the park contributed to the cleaning of Stevie Ray Vaughn and the exercise station, repairing several damaged locations along the rock-walls on the terraces, and resurfacing the paths to the Women in Construction Pavilion.
Special thanks go to the volunteers who were back for their second year, Taco Deli for providing the breakfast tacos and to Felix Pardon and his dedicated PARD staff there to provide their expertise.
Many of you mentioned receiving praises from the community who were in the park during the event; also know that we had the very special (and rare) opportunity to have Linda Guerrero, Chair of the Parks and Recreation Board stop by, walk the event, to see the work being performed by all the volunteers. Before departing Ms. Guerrero, passed on a sincere “thank you” to all the volunteers.
Again, to all the volunteers – Job Well Done!
Client Comments — January 26, 2010 —
Working with the Williams & Associates team was truly a great experience. The entire team took the time to listen to our housing needs and requirements and acted on our guidance which allowed my wife and me to quickly and efficiently narrow or search. Always having our best interests in mind; they represented and negotiated on our behalf; even while out of the country. Also being first time home buyers meant my wife and l had many questions about the home buying and loan process. Scott, Jake and Mike spent the time to go over all the details with us and made us feel comfortable and confident about our buying decision. Lastly, throughout the organization every effort was made to make sure we received the best price for the home we purchased. I can’t thank the entire staff enough for their hard work and determination to get the deal done. There is no doubt when we look to sell and buy another house we will be calling Scott and his team.

“I have been trying to sell my property for quite some time now and right when I was beginning to think it would never sell, Kristin and Scott came into the picture and have been an incredible source of support and knowledge. They are two of the nicest people I have ever met, esp. in an industry where unfortunately there are some unsavory folks. I am grateful for all you both are doing.”

“Williams & Associates successfully sold my rental property in under 7 days, using the Max Avenue system. This process was quick and painless and I could not be happier with the transaction. Many thanks to Scott and Kristin and the rest of the team!”
Client Comments — October 14, 2009 —
“Williams & Assoc. took the hassle of selling my rental property off my shoulders and made this seemingly impossible transaction a reality. By having an expert understanding of the market and using the Max Avenue Home Selling System they were able to secure a FULL PRICE OFFER and close the transaction in a time of great uncertainty. I would heartily recommend Scott and his team to anyone needing to sell their home. Thank you so much!”
~Miss Sandi Williams

“After a long year of diligently searching over 100 properties Scott was able to find the perfect home that fit the needs of my family. The home did not even have a sign out front, but Scott went the extra mile to research everything in the area and uncover a home that was a near miss. He was able to negotiate a 70,000 discount and incredible terms on our offer. Not only did he help us negotiate our home purchase, but he also helped with every other detail of our international move. From starting the visa process to enrolling our children in private schools, and discovering the best places to eat he proved to be a valuable resource. I look forward to working with Williams & Assoc. as I move my assets from Mexico to the United States. I can honestly say that Scott is one of our best friends here in Texas!”
Client Comments — October 19, 2009 —
“After using two other brokers, I finally found the one who could produce in Williams & Associates. My property had been on the market for over two years as the real estate values continued their decline. As I faced the real possibility of a foreclosure, Scott Williams and his agent Michael Garrett were able to secure a buyer with a price that was at or above market value. Then, they stayed with the deal taking care of all details until we closed the sale in September, a month in which foreclosures nationally were 23% higher than last year. I cannot express enough my appreciation for the job well done by Williams & Associates and highly recommend them to anyone in need of real estate professionals.”
