Southaven, MS: Crye-Leike Real Estate Services announces that Dena Austill is now affiliated with its Southaven branch office as a licensed REALTOR, after transferring from another firm. Austill will serve the residential real estate needs of buyers and sellers throughout Shelby and surrounding counties throughout Tennessee, and she soon will obtain her Mississippi real estate license to begin serving DeSoto and surrounding counties.

Austill, who is relatively new to the real estate industry, has worked in the cosmetology profession for 30 years and is currently a salon owner. Wanting to continue to provide service to the community, she decided to earn her real estate license. Her ability to interact with others and manage important projects with her eye on the end result will make her an asset to her future clients and the Crye-Leike team.

In a way, real estate reminds me of the beauty industry," said Austill. "Our appearance can and often does affect the way we feel."

Quick story:

In the beauty industry, I work with a few clients who suffer from alopecia, mild to complete hair loss, which often results in embarrassment and low self-esteem. However, once a person receives a hair restoration/replacement procedure, their confidence soars! The look and smile on their face when they look in the mirror is priceless.

Similarly, purchasing a home is a journey. For some, it can be arduous one. Selling a home can sometimes be very emotional process. However, once a person reaches the goal of buying or selling a home, and then moving on to the next chapter of their life, they often feel happy, satisfied, and accomplished.

My goal is to give it my best, and be the best, even in the worst situation. Just like that satisfied hair replacement client who looks at themselves in the mirror for the first time, I want my real estate clients to feel happy, secure, and confident through the entire buying/selling process.

Austill is a member of the National Association of REALTORS, the Tennessee Association of REALTORS and the Memphis Area Association of REALTORS.
