Todd’s involvement with residential real estate began with the purchase of his first investment property in 1991. It all started with a personal desire to own real estate and turned into a passion for helping others do the same.
Because he wanted to know everything about the real estate and the building industry, Todd gained experience working for property management and subdivision development companies. He also started a general contracting company, custom woodworking company, and has purchased and renovated several investment properties over the years.
After living, working, and playing in Summit County, Colorado for 12 years, the time came to trade the mountains and cold snow of Colorado for the Hill Country and warm lakes of Austin, Texas. The home went up for sale, the moving truck rolled in, and the Hower Clan made a move to Austin, Texas in 2005.
With a fresh start in Austin, Todd decided to focus on residential real estate and the ever-changing world of real estate technology. As a result, Todd has more insight to share with clients about why people move here, why they sell, what they can afford, what homes are worth and what people are willing to spend.
Todd enjoys mountain biking, writing, and photography. He shares this passion as the founder and managing editor of Lake Travis Lifestyle, the place to find and experience the best of all that life around the lake has to offer.
