Martha and her dog PhaebysHaving lived in Austin all her life, Martha has seen the city grow and change from a small town to a thriving urban metro. She is in love with Austin’s unique culture, and loves to share her passion with the Austin area home buyers and sellers she serves. Before becoming a REALTOR®, Martha shared her joyous personality with Austinites over the airwaves as a DJ for local radio stations like KASE, KVET and SPIRIT 105.9. She began her real estate career in leasing and apartment locating, where she discovered her enthusiasm for helping people find the perfect home. Martha became a licensed REALTOR® in 2007 and helped create and manage Greenlight Realty, a successful apartment locating firm in 78704. She decided to pursue residential real estate full time in 2012, and now serves working dual careers as a REALTOR® and owner/founder of HomeStretch Staging. Her passion for staging goes hand-in-hand with her work as an agent, and she is able to see the potential in homes and what they can become. By staying up to date on both the latest staging and real estate trends, Martha has made herself a true double threat and invaluable asset to her clients. Her goal is to help guide her clients toward their dream of homeownership and show them the home buying or selling process can not only be stress-free, but even a little fun!

Favorite Places in Austin
Martha has been sailing since age seven, and enjoys taking a sailboat out on Lake Travis on beautiful, sunny days. Every summer, you’ll find Martha and her family at Pflugerville’s Deutschen Pfest for games, a carnival, and “pfun”. Some of her favorite activities are Austin traditions, like visiting the Zilker Christmas Tree and the Trail of Lights in December, or visiting Sandy’s for a chocolate shake. Martha worked as a “scooper” at Amy’s Ice Cream during her college years, and still enjoys mixing her favorite flavors there. Whether it’s a special occasion or daily lunch, Martha loves getting her Tex-Mex fix at Chuy’s.
Thanks to Martha and Scott, our first home buying experience was absolutely wonderful! When we first met them, they came prepared with a list of properties just in case we wanted to dive right in; but they were more interested in getting to know us and what we were looking for. I always felt like no matter what, Martha and Scott did whatever they could to take care of us; between taking calls/texts as much as they did, all the hours they spent looking for new properties to visit, and always taking consideration for the things we were looking for in a home, I was so relieved to know that I had such on point people on my side. Even after finding the right home, they took us step by step through all of the phases of the home purchase making sure that we were happy at each point. If you have a brain in your head, you want to hire them.Christel Schlager
Let me start by saying Martha is amazing!! The level of customer service, professionalism, fun and hard work she did for me was top notch. She would be point out the nice things about a house,as I was looking but was also pointing out what might be perceived as a negative. I loved that! She wasn't trying to blow smoke. When things got stressful (I really wanted a house and was going in with a bidding war, I won by the way) she was a calming voice and helped me every step of the way. If you need someone professional, hugely customer service oriented, and plain fun to be around call Martha!!Molly S.
In Austin, the only realtor for me and my family is Martha Bowles. We have worked with her several times and always found her to be an amazing listener, knowledgeable, patient and generous with her time. She always exceeds our expectations and seems to always do whatever is necessary to find the property we need. I would recommend her to anyone with no reservations whatsoever.Barbara B.
Martha and Scott are some of the most awesome people I have ever met or worked with. They made our home buying experience so fun and easy! From the beginning to the end of the process, we knew that we had some of the best people in the industry behind us. Being first time homebuyers, things could sometimes be overwhelming and stressful. But they were there for us at any time we needed them, and were constantly updating and educating us on the entire process. I would highly recommend using this dynamic duo next time you are looking for a new home!AJ Simon
Awesome! Martha and Scott help you get your "ducks in a row" to make it happen. Energetic, organized, and efficient.Nick Eads
Martha has the heart of a lion and the tenacity of a honey badger! I have rarely felt so able to leave my stress at someone's feet and know with great confidence that everything will be taken care of. She never seems to be NOT going and making things happen, which is the type of engagement I want from my Realtor. Highly recommend her!Susan and John Thayer
