Stephanie Douglass, Agent, Agent

Steph’s natural state is genuinely connecting with humans on a personal level. She is tenacious and passionate about home design and renovation to improve quality of life. Steph started investing in real estate in 2013 when she bought her first house. Since then, she has become the epitome of what is possible through home purchase. 


Steph is a former elementary school teacher, which explains her knack for guiding and educating homebuyers through their first home purchase. Her caring and understanding nature allows buyers to safely navigate the sometimes murky and emotional waters of real estate. She has an eye for POTENTIAL and can often see past outdated design to save her clients thousands of dollars. She has a genuine interest in getting the best price for the best property to help clients find a house they can be proud to call home. 


After attending UT, Steph stayed in Austin and has lived here for 10 years. She has an incredible knowledge of Austin areas, vibes and people! With the help of her Realtor, Kate Mach, she invested in a 1950s home on the east side and renovated it to fit her aesthetic. After working with Kate, she realized that real estate could be honest, fair and exciting. Kate inspired Steph to become a realtor and they have since merged to form Vardo Partners, a collaboration between real estate, design and renovation. 


Steph and Kate are thrilled to showcase their design aesthetic and their passion for feeling strong and centered: Vardo Yoga & Bazaar combines exercise, the senses and shiny old things. Now open in downtown Lockhart, TX.
