Colleen grew up on a small family owned and operated farm near Cameron, Tx. After graduating from Texas Tech with a degree in Landscape Architecture she moved to Austin where she met her husband Derrek. In 2009, the couple moved back to Derrek’s hometown of Lampasas to open Eckermann Engineering and move closer to family. Colleen loves the small town with big city access that Lampasas offers.
Faith and family are her top priorities. In recent years, Colleen has be blessed to stay at home where she was needed. Being a mom is the most rewarding job in her life. She helps coach their daughter Cora’s travel softball team and loves sharing in those memories. She has treasured taking their son Layton and daughter Cora to golf tournaments, basketball games, softball practices and baseball tournaments.
Previous experience as a landscape designer, insurance agent, and loan officer all influenced Colleen’s decision to begin a career in real estate. Derrek and her have bought and sold within Lampasas County since 2009. Together, they have expanded their personal portfolio with rental property and continuously relocated their homestead to use equity acquired for the next step for their family. Her experience selling their own properties brings her clients a higher level of understanding and customer service. Colleen’s personal approach to design, staging and negotiations gives her clients the extra edge for their real estate transaction.
Now, the family enjoys the Texas sunsets from their back porch overlooking their stocked pond. They love fishing, exploring the creek or just driving the dogs around on the Polaris. She looks forward to helping her clients turn their house into a home, buy the land they have dreamed about and make memories with the ones they love.
