You will always be working directly with one of us below, benefitting from our local knowledge and years of Austin Real Estate experience.

Joe Gage, Realtor®, GRI® joined the Crossland Team as a Buyer Specialist in 2013. Joe was born and raised in Montana. He owns a pickup truck, wears cowboy boots, and lives on more than an acre, so he is now an honorary Texan.

Joe always works hard to build trust through reliability, honesty and integrity. He enjoys helping home buyers and investors find the right home in Austin TX and surrounding areas.
