John Teinert became a licensed Real Estate agent while studying at the University of Texas McCombs School of Business, where he earned his degree in Finance. Throughout college, he worked with various commercial real estate brokers.
Teinert then headed east to Washington, D.C. after graduation, where he worked as a financial market analyst at Shannon and Luchs Real Estate and then at the Federal National Mortgage Association (FNMA/Fannie Mae) as a residential loan packaging/servicing analyst. Eventually, John ended up back in Real Estate, taking a position at Pardoe Real Estate Sotheby’s in the Washington, D.C./Georgetown area selling luxury homes and estates.
When John returned to Austin, he began investing in real estate and brokering commercial and residential properties. Four years later, John teamed up with Chris Pellegrino to start Austin Fine Properties in Old West Austin.
