About Carla Black

Carla Black is a rock star REALTOR – quite literally. She discovered a passion for real estate following a storied, 30-year career in the music industry: first as a musician, then a magazine publisher/journalist and finally as a conference organizer. Carla’s entrepreneurial spirit and enthusiasm for working with creative (some might even say high maintenance) people gives her an edge with the edgy. If you are particular or have very specific real estate needs, “Bring it on!” Although she works throughout the greater Austin area, selling homes from Jarrell to Manchaca, she is especially knowledgeable on Dripping Springs, Lakeway, Bee Cave, and the Texas Hill Country. ​Carla is proud to be a member of the National Association of REALTORS, The Texas Association of REALTORS, The Austin Board of REALTORS and the Dripping Springs Chamber of Commerce. As an agent she has earned the prestigious career designations of GRI (Graduate, REALTOR Institute) and RENE (Real Estate Negotiation Expert).
