The Underwood Team, Broker Owner/ REALTOR®
Michael has spent the past 18 years of his life dedicating his career to the real estate industry. With the last eight years as a full time REALTOR® in Austin, he previously worked at Arch Telecom (www.archagent.com) beginning in the year 2000. In 10 years at Arch Telecom, he consulted thousands of real estate agents and mortgage lenders and attended over 100 seminars across the country. This experience for Michael was quite valuable as he learned strategies from the top real estate trainers and agents across the country and has a large network of real estate and mortgage professionals.
Michael began his professional career at a company called FMC in the customer service department in 1994. He moved to Austin in 1998 to work for DELL and then, Apple. Afterward, he found his passion in the real estate. In 2007, he married Christina and they now have two boys. The time he’s lived in Austin, (notably, in every part of town—North, South, East and West) makes him well-suited to represent real estate clients and their interests. Michael is a dedicated husband and father who takes a lot of pride in his city, state, country and community. In his spare time, Michael jogs, plays golf, and entertains friends and family.

Rave Real Estate, REALTOR®, ABR, GRI
I was born and raised in Central Texas where I have lived most of my life. I received a Bachelor of Business Administration degree from Texas A&M University (Gig’Em!) in 2000, moved to Austin directly after that and was an accountant in various rolls for 14 years. I come from a family of builders and have been interested in construction, land development, and all types of real estate since childhood. I obtained my real estate license in 2014.
I enjoy spending time outdoors with my husband and our two kids on the lake and at local social and sporting events. We have lived in the Lake Travis area since 2005. As a life-long Texan with a keen knowledge of the area I am easily able to help my clients market their home for sale and find the perfect next home or property.

Born, raised and native to Northern California, Elisha graduated from Santa Clara University with a BS in Commerce/Accounting; she also played softball on scholarship. Elisha found her way into Property Management working for merchant builders and Real Estate Investment Trusts (REITS) such as JPI and AIMCO. Over a span of 10 years, she managed residential properties ranging from 130-900 units, achieving many sales awards. Her main focus in property management was customer service, creating magical experiences for her residents. One truth there that now applies directly to real estate—people will always remember how you make them feel.
Shortly after meeting her husband in 2009, she moved to Illinois and started a family; she focused on being a stay-at-home wife and mom to their daughter. After experiencing the brutally cold winters, her family explored the possibility of relocating to the great city of Austin. They made the move to Dripping Springs in April, 2014. She missed the excitement of helping people relocate and finding their perfect home, so she acquired her Texas Real Estate license and teamed up with The Underwood Team. Elisha’s #1 goal is to find out what is most important for you in a home and finding your perfect fit. She understands the stress and excitement of relocating and is ready and willing to make it a positive experience for you and your family.
In her free time, Elisha enjoys spending time with her family, 8 dogs and teaching at Pure Barre in Lakeway. She is also a certified Pilates Instructor.

I’m a native Texan and have lived in Central Texas for 15+ years. I went to school at Texas State University (Eat ‘em up cats!!) and the moment I stepped foot on the gorgeous campus with a lazy river running through it, I knew I would never leave this area. I have a degree in Finance. I worked for Charles Schwab Retirement Plan Services for 11 years and have had a great interest in real estate since high school.
I’m a proud mommy of 3 – a little girl named Parker, a little boy named Hayden and a fur baby (aka chocolate Labrador) named Shakes. Being a mom is truly the greatest experience of my life so far. It is a daily adventure and I love every second.
My husband and I are huge foodies and love sampling the many restaurants, breweries, wineries and distilleries around central Texas. We also love going to the lake and river with our family. Travel is also a huge part of our lives. We love experiencing new places, food and cultures.
I am still amazed daily by the eccentricities of this awesome city. From the brilliant art work on buildings, beautiful architecture, stunning skyline and lake views, to the amazingly diverse group of people living in the different neighborhoods that ‘keep Austin weird’. My husband and I love discovering new places within and around this beautiful place we call home. We feel so lucky to live in such a breathtaking city!
I am passionate about this city and would love to help you find your dream home. Not just the physical house but the area that makes you thrive and where you can be a part of the community. I will cater to your NEEDS and WANTS and make your buying or selling process simple and easy. Thanks for taking the time to learn about me. I hope to meet you and help turn your dreams into reality
