After graduating from Texas A&M University I spent ten years in corporate sales. In 2006 I had the opportunity to come to work for Lone Star Land Partners, and I have never regretted the decision for a minute. It is truly a joy to help people make their dreams of land ownership come true in one of our spectacular communities.

I am a native of Texas and have been practicing real estate for two years. I returned to my hometown of Burnet in October of 2015 to join the Lone Star Land Partners team. Working outdoors and helping customers find their perfect home in the Texas Hill Country is my favorite part of the job. Previously I worked in Houston as an energy broker, initially entering the oil business in 1998 as a financial journalist. I am a 1990 graduate of the University of Texas where my daughter, Brigit, is now a senior. I also have two canine boys, Gilligan and Skipper.

After growing up in Baytown, Justin studied Wildlife Ecology at Texas A&M University. His love for the Hill Country & property ownership started early, having spent summers at his Grandparents ranch outside of Mason. Although, Justin enjoyed the 8 years he spent as a Petroleum Landman, traveling across Texas examining Mineral Title. It was a dream come true for Justin, & his wife Misty, when in 2016 he joined Lone Star Land Partners. Misty, a RN at Baylor Scott & White in Marble Falls, often says that leaving the Houston Suburbs for the small town of Burnet, was the best thing they’ve ever done for their young children Wilson & Peyton.

With well over 100 years of collective experience in helping customers realize their dream of land ownership, National Land Partners, LLC (NLP) has finely tuned its model of transforming rural land into premium recreational and residential real estate, coupled with a high level of customer service. Thousands of acres are owned and managed by the company. The company has also completed nearly 1,000 projects encompassing hundreds of thousands of land parcels. The NLP land acquisition team researches and inspects hundreds of potential land deals every year, paying close attention to geographic regions, visual and historic interests, environmental studies, zoning reviews, permitting and most importantly, how the company can pass along savings and value to you, our customer. NLP sees itself primarily as a service company, with a strong conviction to the belief that one should not have to be rich to own land. It’s this simple core belief that has resulted in thousands of happy land owners who have also gone on to refer their own friends and family to do business with us.
Our company’s financial strength enables us to acquire large tracts of beautiful, highly desirable, undeveloped land, usually next to or near amenities such as golf courses, ocean, lakes, rivers or mountains. These properties are also within a reasonable driving distance of major metropolitan areas. NLP then improves the property’s infrastructure with utilities, roads and a variety of amenities. The land is then subdivided into scenic, recreational, ready-to-build homesites, otherwise unavailable to the general public. Our in-house team of sales professionals then assist prospective purchasers in selecting the piece of property ideally suited for their needs. Our customers’ needs are the focal point of each project we develop and every decision we make. In everything we do, our goal is to exceed our customer’s expectation for quality, value and service.
