Jackson Jumps to @Properties Christie’s in Austin

Native Austinite Katie Jackson has jumped from Compass to @properties Christie’s International Real Estate.

Jackson will join the firm’s sports and entertainment group and its land and ranch division. She has sold more than $150 million in real estate since she started as an agent in 2013, according to a news release. She has an extensive background in development and new construction, it said.

Jackson had a previous career as a pediatric nurse practitioner. Having grown up in Austin, she knows the “old Austin,” and the new, she said.

“I have personally experienced the exponential growth in and around Austin. Austin is still a very robust market where many of the real estate transactions happen off-line,” she said.

The firm launched its Austin office in September, under the leadership of Jerry Mooty Jr., who is the nephew of Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones. Since then, the firm has added the sports division and a roster of brokers hired away from top firms.

Here’s what else is shaking in Texas real estate this week.

S2 Capital, a multifamily syndicator based in Dallas, has hired Michael Bippus as vice president of acquisitions for Southeast markets. Bippus will lead acquisitions in Tennessee, Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia and Florida. Based in Atlanta, Bippus most recently worked as managing director of acquisitions for Waypoint Residential. S2 also hired Will Foster as a senior associate on the Southeast investments team.

GSR Andrade Architects has moved. The firm leased 10,500 square feet in the Oilwell Supply Building, at 2001 North Lamar Street, in the West End of downtown Dallas. Nate Hruby and Demian Salmon of Stream Realty Partners represented GSR Andrade in the transaction. The firm is moving from 4121 Commerce Street in Exposition Park, which is one of the 17 buildings that local firm August Real Estate acquired last summer. 

GSR Andrade was founded in 2001 and is led by president and CEO Fernando Andrade. The firm works on commercial, industrial, health care and multifamily projects. It has been involved with renovations to Fair Park, and it added architectural flair to the Trinity River levees with its stylish water utility buildings.
