About Lynn Currie

Lynn Currie LynnBlueBrodie
Lynn moved to Austin in 1989 to attend the University of Texas and, like many of us, decided to stay in this quirky little town. Fresh out of college, she bought her first house in South Austin and renovated it on a shoe-string budget. Right then and there, the love of real estate, working on houses, and great spaces was born.

Since then she’s catapulted that experience to remodeling her own house, a couple of commercial spaces, and building new houses and duplexes. Lynn’s eye is always laser-focused on building spaces that Austinites love to live in. You’ll notice that almost all of the projects have huge windows that let in a lot of natural light, great kitchens perfect for creating meals and conversation, a screened in porch for enjoying Austin’s amazing days and nights free of bugs, and outdoor spaces where kids and dogs (or other 2-4 legged creatures) can play.

When not on the job site, Lynn can be found enjoying one of Austin’s amazing restaurants, hanging out at Zilker Park, or walking through the neighborhood with her 2 dogs, Brodie and Blue.

If you’d like to connect with Lynn, you can find her at one of the following places:

  • LinkedIn, where she posts Austin Real Estate, Growth, Community and Transit News.
  • Twitter, where she posts even more (less filtered) Austin Real Estate, Growth, Community and Transit News in addition to random tidbits of other information and thoughts about things she loves (or hates).
  • Instagram, where you can find a ridiculous amount of photos of her dogs, Brodie and Blue.

About Mellie Price

Mellie Price
Mellie, also a 25+ year Austinite, also came to Austin to attend the University of Texas and never left. She bought her first house in 1997 after selling her web development company, and proceeded to tackle a DIY remodel for the next year of her life. Several residential rental properties and literally dozens of real estate investments (including SFR’s, duplexes, a subdivision, a hotel, and several mobile home parks) later – she’s finally accepted her love of all things real estate; especially the bean counting part.

An experienced investor, business manager, fund manager and entrepreneur, Mellie loves building and growing companies that create great investment returns. She was the founder and CEO of Austin’s own Front Gate Tickets – one of the largest privately held ticketing companies in the US/Canada from 2002 to 2012. She is the founder and Managing Partner of Source Spring – an investment company that specializes in early stage technology companies. Mellie also serves as Managing Director of Capital Factory and is a General Partner to its investment fund.

In addition to her passion for keeping the proverbial House in Order, Mellie loves 4 legged critters, good wine, growing succulents, and spending time with her family. Oh, and watching Lynn make beautiful things happen! You can connect with her on The Twitters and LinkedIn.
