About Carrie Benuska Leinen


Agent Details

Meet Carrie

My Texas journey is a new one. I was born and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area and then spent most of my adult life in beautiful Pasadena CA, where I raised my three kids. A few twists and turns later, my husband and I decided to return to his beloved Austin, Texas. It was an easy decision. We were both ready for an empty-nest adventure, and Austin was a perfect fit.

I grew to love Texas when two of my kids attended TCU. Not only was I thoroughly impressed with the education they received, I also loved the warm and friendly people I met. My experiences in Fort Worth were dominated by football, as my son was a left tackle on the TCU football team. I loved every moment of my Texas football experience!

I have been selling residential real estate for 16 years and have helped a long list of buyers and sellers accomplish their goals. My career was built and grown in the San Gabriel Valley of Southern California. I was an award-winning agent and was blessed to sell some truly special architectural homes. My focus was on luxury sales, but my portfolio includes homes from all price points. My educational background is in Industrial Engineering, which is the study of efficiency and productivity. I have been able to take these skills and apply them to the art of real estate sales. I spent years creating processes and systems to bring consistency to the home sale process. My love of statistics and data analytics allows me to dig deep into market conditions.

I have been buying and fixing up homes my whole adult life, which is what drew me to get my real estate license. I’m a home renovation junky, and I love beautiful design. My work goes far beyond making a space look pretty, though. My focus is always on making improvements that will translate to profits when it comes time to sell. I use this experience to help my clients get their own homes ready for sale. Advanced studies in Interior Design and Interior Architecture have given me added knowledge and tools to bring to my clients.

My husband and I love to travel, even if it is a day trip on his Harley. I enjoy Pickleball, antiquing, and getting out into nature. I am a football fanatic and root for the Green Bay Packers, the Horned Frogs, and of course our Longhorns.
