Born and raised in the New Orleans, Louisiana area, Ann Banos moved to Austin in the early 1980’s after graduating from Southeastern Louisiana University with a Bachelor’s degree in Science in Medical Technology.
The real estate bug soon hit and in the late ‘80’s, Ann began taking classes in real estate with a dream to follow her grandfather’s footstep in real estate. In 1998, Ann began a full-service home buying and selling practice specializing in corporate relocation and first time home buyers….and never looked back.
Fast forward to 2006 and after having exceptional successes helping buyers and sellers navigate the buying and selling process, Ann aligned with a startup real estate franchise based out of the Midwest named Real Living. Real Living has since became one of the fastest growing real estate companies in the nation and is now a network brand of HSF Affiliates LLC, which is majority owned by Home Services of America, Inc.™, a Berkshire Hathaway affiliate. Berkshire Hathaway’s primary stockholder is Warren Buffet, one of the wealthiest and most respected businessmen in the world.

She is considered one of the most knowledgeable Realtors in Austin area and her dedication to providing both clients and agents with the most exemplary service has truly set Banos apart. Ann is a multi-million dollar producer year after year and is a Texas Monthly 5 star professional which puts her in the top 5% of agents in the Austin area. This commitment to success is shared with all those around her and at Real Living.
Ann is currently responsible for the daily operations of the full service real estate brokerage, Real Living LifeStyles Realty including new Business Development and Marketing. As the President, she also oversees the recruitment, training and development of Realtors affiliating with Real Living LifeStyles Realty. Ann is always energetic and excited about the ever changing Austin Real Estate Brokerage market and is excited to share her knowledge with consumers and agents alike.
