Williamson County is a hub for companies such as Dell Computers, the Round Rock Express and the Texas Stars. Plus, we’ve got Sun City, Round Rock Donuts, and even the Two Step Inn Festival and Samsung Electronics.
Despite the market shift that happened last year, Central Texas (especially Williamson County) has continued to show steady growth. Businesses and new ventures are still flocking to this bustling county, which means more residents and ultimately more homebuyers.
This year, Williamson County REALTORS® is celebrating 50 years of Unlocking the World of Real Estate for Williamson County. We started out in May 1973 with only 15 REALTORS® and nine brokers, but now we’ve grown to over 2,400 members and we’re not slowing down anytime soon.
Our mission is simple: to help our members meet present and future real estate challenges in Williamson County and Central Texas, to enhance and promote REALTOR® members’ professionalism, to encourage member involvement in the various communities of Williamson County, and to provide quality services for our members. We take our mission seriously and work hard to ensure our goals and activities are in line with it.
With all the new businesses, homebuyers, and growth in our area, it’s more important than ever to get involved in your communities and your Association to be the voice of real estate in our county. Clients love working with knowledgeable agents who keep up with current happenings in the areas they’re looking to buy or sell. Being the local area expert is a surefire way to stand out from the competition, and WCREALTORS is here to help! We’ve been partnering with local leaders, officials, and communities to open up a wealth of information and make our voice heard.
We have implemented two distinct approaches to provide our members with valuable insights into the communities where they work, reside and conduct business. Firstly, we have reintroduced our City Update Series, which offers firsthand knowledge through educational sessions. These sessions provide an opportunity to interact with local mayors, city council members, school officials and police in a relaxed setting over breakfast.
The City Update schedule is as follows: [insert schedule here]. We believe that these sessions will enable our members to gain a deeper understanding of the issues and challenges facing their communities, and to develop meaningful relationships with local leaders. Our goal is to empower our members with the knowledge and resources they need to make informed decisions and contribute positively to their communities.

The second is the reinstatement of our highly acclaimed Selling the Suburbs: Selling Real Estate in Williamson County (WCSpecialist) Certification course. This award-winning course was initially launched in 2015 by a team of experienced REALTORS® who aimed to equip our members with the necessary skills to better serve the community.
The WCSpecialist course is designed to provide comprehensive knowledge on various aspects of Williamson County Real Estate, including taxing entities, water issues, local governmental jurisdictions, new homes, septic systems, and much more. Upon completion of the course, attendees earn the prestigious Specialist of Williamson County Real Estate designation, which is highly sought after by clients in the home buying or selling process.
The course is structured to promote geographic competency and is divided into eight sessions spanning across four full days of class. Our mission is to ensure that our members are well-versed in all aspects of Williamson County Real Estate, enabling them to provide exceptional service to their clients.
We understand the importance of staying up-to-date with the latest industry trends and regulations, and our WCSpecialist course is an excellent opportunity for our members to enhance their knowledge and skills. We encourage all our members to take advantage of this opportunity and enroll in the WCSpecialist course.
We look forward to welcoming you to our upcoming course, and we are confident that you will find it both informative and engaging.
Cedar Park/Leander: August 9; Georgetown/Round Rock: September 13; Hutto/Taylor: October 10; Liberty Hill/Jarrell: November 8
