As a third-generation Austinite, Carla is deeply in tune with Austin’s culture and character. Carla made the move into real estate in 2006 with a boutique brokerage and quickly found it to be a natural fit. With over 15 years of experience collaborating with buyers, sellers, architects, developers, and investors, Carla has a vast knowledge and appreciation for construction & design, contract negotiations, and client advocacy. To date, Carla has sold over $150 million in real estate, has earned accolades as a top producer, and has helped countless buyers and sellers achieve their goals. Carla especially enjoys working with relocation clients because it gives her an opportunity to showcase her hometown and educate on the different nuances of certain areas and places to enjoy in Austin. Executives from Amazon, Charles Schwab, Northern Trust, RGM Advisors, C3 Presents, Frog Design, and Austin NNN have trusted her with their corporate relocation business and her list is growing.
Carla has a B.A. in Social Work from UT Austin and before entering real estate, she worked as a Case Manager with Child Protective Services. This meaningful and challenging work laid the foundation for her success and determination; it was the ultimate lesson in client advocacy, crisis management, upholding confidentiality, and resourcefulness. Most importantly, this work set Carla on a life path paved by her most cherished principles of trust, honesty, and kindness.
Carla’s love of art and the importance of living an intentional life was shaped by her family and catapulted by her paternal grandparents, Charles and Angie Umlauf who gifted homestead above Barton Springs along with hundreds of pieces of art by her late grandfather to the City of Austin. This gift later came to be known as the UMLAUF Sculpture Garden & Museum. Carla served on the non-profit Board of Directors for the Sculpture Garden & Museum for over a decade and now serves as the family representative for the organization, working with trustees and city leaders to uphold her family legacy.
As a mother to her daughters, Sophia and Ella and Springer Spaniel “Ollie Bear”, Carla understands the importance of family and relationships. The collaborative nature of Umlauf Properties Group feels more like family to her and Carla takes pride in the success of each agent on her team.
