Austin Troughton grew up in a real estate family and is now carrying on the tradition in his hometown, with the San Clemente office of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices California Properties. While attending San Francisco State University Austin earned a Bachelors degree in Urban Planning, with a focus in housing policy, land-use planning, research methods and urban economics. He has past experience working at a well-known startup, as well as a household name corporation. In these diverse professional environments operations changed daily and the mindset is to always think of solutions on the go.
""From a young age, I was interested in real estate, development, and community," he said. "My dad has owned his own brokerage for 25-plus years, showing me the sacrifices and hard work needed to make it in the real estate industry."
Austin's academic background combined with a strong drive to succeed gives him the ability to make a seemingly difficult process intuitively enjoyable and easy. Although Austin is well known in Orange County, his business and social network go far beyond the county boundaries. He has lived in San Francisco and Amsterdam, creating life long connections around the world. Having visited over 20 countries thus far, Austin equates himself with all types of people and cultures, never forgetting the importance behind meaningful relationships.
A leisure enthusiast, Austin loves surfing, snowboarding, camping, and traveling to new and different places. When he is not living a lifestyle of leisure or working endlessly to meet a clients needs, he finds creative ways to give back to his community. During his time at college, Austin founded the university's first Surf Club, and was one of the first committee leaders of Students for Justice, which was instrumental in obtaining free transportation passes for students
His social personality and dedicated work ethic, created an economically independent young man with a strong entrepreneur mindset. We are excited to have his fresh, local perspective in our community-oriented office.
"Sometimes I feel like real estate chose me instead of me choosing real estate," Austin said.
"My goal is to listen to my clients, while using my knowledge and local market expertise to get them the best possible economic return on their investment, giving them a service that ultimately betters their life."
