Founder and Team Leader
Leslie Kasen is the team leader and head real estate agent for 512Vibe Real Estate Group. She has spent the last 15 years working in the real estate industry, filling many positions that have included leasing manager at JB Goodwin and relocation assistant. She has been a certified realtor for more than 15 years.
Leslie loves working in residential real estate because it allows her to see families in her community grow. She gains a sense of enrichment by helping young families buy their first homes, while simultaneously helping established residents find their next dream home!
She also enjoys the opportunities her job gives her to meet new people and make new friendships. While she has been heading 512 Vibe Real Estate Group, Leslie has formed lasting friendships in and out of the office.
Leslie finds that her gift for reading people helps her perform better as an effective agent. She’s able to help each client feel comfortable. Once they can open up to her in that trusting environment, Leslie learns what they’re really looking for in a real estate purchase. That process helps her meet her clients’ needs more accurately.
When she’s not working, Leslie enjoys spending time with her family. Activities they enjoy together include watching football, vacationing in Costa Rica, spending time on the water, and playing with their German shepherds.
Leslie’s friends and family will tell you she is kind and generous, but she’s also strong and fierce when the cards are down. She supports Habitat for Humanity, SAFE, and We Are Blood.
Megan Patel is an ATX agent with 512Vibe Real Estate Group, serving clients across the Austin metro. In her current role, she works in both residential and commercial real estate, servicing sellers, buyers, and investors within the local market.
In her previous role as a special education teacher, Megan developed the soft skills that she now uses to help her real estate clients. She’s very organized, has finely tuned time-management skills, and possesses the patience required to monitor the changes in the market. These skills help her find the best deals for each of her clients.
Megan finds her career to be incredibly rewarding, giving her the opportunity to help people find their dream home or perfect investment property. She also finds her work environment to be richly positive. With Leslie Kasen and JB Goodwin, Megan completes a team that works well together. The supportive nature of their collaboration is a positive force in her professional life.
Aside from a deep interest in real estate investing, Megan chose to pursue real estate as a career out of a love for people. Working in this industry provides her with daily opportunities to leave the office and meet new people. She has always been a people person, and she cherishes the frequent chances to make new and lasting friendships.
When she’s not working, Megan spends time with her sons, ages 11 and 18, and their family dog. She enjoys dining out, spending time outdoors, and attending live concerts where she can dance. Having grown up in the deaf community in Austin, TX, Megan is fluent in ASL.
Megan Patel also helps her mother run Divine Donations, a charitable organization that serves the local community. She hopes people will most recognize her compassion and kindness as her strongest traits.
Buyer's and Seller's Agent
I’m Danny Harper – sales agent, problem solver, and lifelong Austin resident. Before I got into real estate, I worked for many years in the service industry.
While the financial decisions my clients make today are a bit larger than the ones my clients did back then, I still see a connection between working in the two industries; you work to serve people and fill their needs. My years in the service industry taught me how to do exactly that.
There are many reasons why I decided to get into the real estate business. One of which was my lovely wife, Renee. After seeing how much satisfaction she got from helping her clients overcome challenges through creative problem-solving, I found it to be a great fit for my own skills in communication, negotiation and building relationships with clients.
I get a lot of joy from meeting new people, building relationships with them, and helping others. When I’m not working, I like to think I’m a pretty fun-loving person who’s a good time to be around. I love playing golf and attending Jeep events, but my greatest passion is my family.
I love to spend quality time with them at home, often with the BBQ pit going. Cooking up a great meal while enjoying the company of loved ones is my favorite way to pass the time. Another one of my biggest passions is doing charitable work. I’ve done a lot of volunteering in the past, and the type of work I connect with most is anything where I get the chance to work with my hands.
I would love to be a resource for your real estate journey. Reach out to me to start a conversation about your next home: firstname.lastname@example.org
Buyer's and Seller's Agent
I’m Renee Harper, realtor with 512 Vibe and JBGoodwin Realtors and owner of Harper Services, a boutique Transaction Management firm in Austin.
My passion for serving my community and my knack for numbers, negotiations, and creative problem-solving led me to begin work as a realtor over six years ago. Within just a few years on the job, I came to realize that my strengths lie in administration, so I decided to build a separate company that supports agents with paperwork and administration so they can focus on running their business.
While I love helping clients find their dream homes and walking them through one of the biggest financial decisions of their lives, I also love being able to serve real estate agents so that they can do their jobs more effectively.
Although being an entrepreneur in the real estate industry is a tremendous area of focus in my life, I do have many other interests. I love to dance, act, read, travel, and explore the outdoors, and I’m passionate about theater. When I’m not working, I am either at the park with my family or trying out a new Austin activity.
One of my other great passions — and another way in which I like to serve my community — is charity work. While there are many out there that do great work, the two non-profits that are closest to my heart are the Make-a-Wish Foundation and Habitat for Humanity. I also love to support the local mom community during Christmas time to make sure that no children go without presents beneath their tree on Christmas morning.
If buying or selling is something you’re considering, I’d love to help! Reach out to me to start the conversation: email@example.com
