As a second-generation real estate broker and formally educated as a Marine Biologist (University of Hawaii at Manoa, class of 2011), Austin Williams brings his passion for the coast and analytical skills to SMICRE. He takes a holistic approach when working with clients to match them with properties that will help realize their investment goals and get the best ROI.
Austin moved to Newport, Oregon in 2013 to work as a scientist aboard fishing vessels. As a result, he had the opportunity to explore every port on the coast and experienced what Oregon has to offer from the sea and along the majestic Highway 101. Every town here is unique and it’s not hard to find something special in any of them, be it a lonely beach or a world-class restaurant. That’s what drew Austin to real estate to begin with; the opportunity to help people find their own something special on this coast and to network with people that want to see it grow. He loves to see all the progress that has been made over the past few years and appreciates how investors have come into this community to build something new while retaining the area’s historical charm.
Austin has been an active community member by being involved with several local organizations. He has served as a volunteer research SCUBA diver with the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife, a team member with Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office Search and Rescue, Board member of the Depoe Bay Salmon Enhancement Commission, and as Vice Chair of the Depoe Bay Harbor Commission.
Austin is passionate about using his knowledge of the Oregon Coast to help clients find investment opportunities that will add value to their portfolio and to the community. Whether you are a first time home buyer or a seasoned investor, Austin has the skills and knowledge to help you achieve your goals.
