Marley Bautista


Passionate about experiencing the flavors of our vibrant city and excited about the ever changing local market, Marley is inspired by Austin and all it has to offer. Marley has been a Realtor® since 2005 and has vast knowledge of real estate, both on the buying and selling sides of the transaction. As a Platinum Top 50 winner and finalist, she has performed at a high level in the Austin market. She has been a multi-million-dollar producer since 2006 and has sold well over 200 homes in the area.

With specialties in corporate and military relocation, Marley understands how to navigate the wide array of moving parts involved in an out-of-state or unexpected move to an unfamiliar area. With that in mind, she makes it her priority to help clients acclimate to the area and provides a wealth of area-specific information tailored to their needs. Having taught classes to first-time homebuyers, she also understands the intricacies of understanding real estate from a rookie perspective. She is also highly capable of creating a smooth transition for move-up buyers who must sell a home before purchasing the next one.

Having entered the investment market personally in 2014, Marley has firsthand knowledge of purchasing investment properties for resale. With an eye for design and an ability to spot a “diamond in the rough”, Marley will be an asset to you as you search for your own investment homes in Austin. When it comes to staging homes for resale, Marley uses that same skill set to prepare homes for the market. Marley’s highly developed home staging skills ensure the best possible buyer walk-through experience and encourages the highest possible sales price in the market for sellers.

Marley is the mother of two small children and has been married for 14 years to her Austin College sweetheart, who is the owner of the Austin Center for Therapy and Assessment, a psychology practice in south Austin. Together, as 3rd degree black belts in American karate, they instruct children and adults who attend the Austin Society of Karate at Dittmar Recreation Center in south Austin. Also, they share a strong love of the outdoors and live music and make an effort to expose their children to the music culture and natural beauty of Austin any time the opportunity presents itself. She and her husband feel blessed to live in such an amazing city, which has so much to offer its’ residents. 

"Marley was FANTASTIC to work with. She was recommended to us by a friend of mine from college (Shelley K.), and exceeded all of our expectations thoroughly. We were nervous about the process of buying a home in Austin, since we knew it's a fast-moving market, and we flew in from Florida so had limited time. In the weeks before we arrived, Marley put in tons of time in helping us prep for the visit. She worked with us to make sure we were comfortable with how our online searches were set up, and drove to several properties to give us tours via FaceTime. She made us feel like we had a good grasp on the neighborhood before we set foot in Austin. We understood what the plan would be for our short visit before we got on the plane. While we were in town, Marley made us feel welcome and comfortable. She was organized and thorough in presenting us with choices in our price range, in the neighborhoods we wanted, and giving us a good perspective on the pros and cons of each property."

"Having bought/sold 7 houses over the years, Marley is one of the most attentive and responsive realtors I have dealt with. constantly sought out homes in the Austin area when we decided to move and provided insight into the attributes of each location. Very adaptable to our plan changes. Also helped our daughter find her first home and skillfully guided her through the home buying process. I would highly recommend Marley as a realtor to anyone who asks."

"Marley did an excellent job helping us with the sale of our old house and the purchase of our new home. She was really on top of every detail, which helped the process unfold quickly and smoothly. Her thorough knowledge of the details and daily nuances of the market helped us negotiate both of our transactions in ways that were very positive. She also helped us find a neighborhood that perfectly fit what we were looking for as we begin to raise our family. We are happy to have worked with Marley and would gladly recommend her to friends and family who are buying or selling in the area."
