Lauren was born and raised in South Austin and has watched the city and surrounding areas grow and change drastically over the years.
Lauren started her real estate career in 2013 after 15 years of teaching in the elementary and middle school classroom . Originally the plan was to be a part-time realtor while her kids were still at home during the day. Over time she has learned that she absolutely loves real estate and has become passionate about helping her client’s achieve their dreams. While Lauren works in all areas of real estate, she has found she truly enjoys the property management side of the business. Whether its helping a buyer purchase their first investment property or working with tenants to find them the perfect location to call home. She takes the hassle off the owners so they can enjoy the cashflow of investing, but not the headaches rental properties can sometimes bring. Lauren prides herself on open communication, transparency, and great working relationships with her clients.

Tim Dowling is the broker for Beyond The Lease Realty, LLC and Beyond The Move Realty, LLC. Tim has over 18 years experience in traditional and investment real estate and manages over eighteen realtors with three full time staff. In 2011 alone, Beyond The Move Realty listed and sold over three hundred and twenty homes and helped hundreds more purchase properties. These remarkable numbers were done in what was called a down economy. The success Tim created with Beyond The Move Realty, was the driving force behind the need to create a property management company. Realizing that many of his investor clients could benefit from having their properties professionally managed, Tim partnered with Realtor/Investor, Leslie Martine to create Beyond The Lease Realty.
After purchasing his first few rental properties and an office, Tim quickly realized the wealth building potential of real estate investing. He recently earned his Certified Investment Agent Specialist designation in order to be able to better serve the investors he works with. Tim is actively working on growing his portfolio and wants to help others do the same.
Tim lives on some acreage in Buda, which is just south of Austin. He has three kids and a wonderful wife, and if that was enough they have two dogs and three cats. Tim’s goal is to not bend to the pressures of his wife and children for even more animals.
