Myra Zapata - REALTOR®
Long before Austin became “the music capital of the world,” it’s been “home” for Myra Zapata. She’s spent her whole life learning everything there is to know about what makes the city—and its people—tick. “I’ve never lived anywhere else, and I don’t want to. I love everything about this city.” Raised in East Austin, Myra has had the unique privilege of seeing her childhood community evolve into a hip, highly desirable area. While she’s always game to try one of the area’s many trendy new restaurants, she’s just as happy to secure a seat at one of her favorite local establishments, like El Azteca (now closed), Ciscos, or Joe’s Bakery (where she indulges a passion for crispy tacos).
Myra was drawn to real estate because of her deep appreciation and commitment to the “American dream” of home ownership. After purchasing her first home at the age of 20, Myra knows all too well the significance and weight of investment, as well as the sense of accomplishment and success that come along with it. For Myra, it’s all about “being a part of making dreams come true.” She loves the hunt of finding clients their future home, and her intimate knowledge of Austin’s many diverse neighborhoods helps ensure the perfect fit.
Myra is undoubtedly a “people person,” and cites her biggest passion in real estate as the unique and diverse group of individuals it allows her to connect with. As the eldest of three sisters, she is a natural-born leader whose attention to detail is surpassed only by her self-discipline and motivation. Myra is by definition a “type A” personality in the very best sense of the phrase—a trait that serves her incredibly well in the real estate industry, as her many satisfied clients can attest to.
