Kirk Lewis was born to be an entrepreneur. He grew up in a tight-knit community in the small town of Clyde, TX. Although Kirk credits his father for teaching him how to be an effective businessman and demonstrating the benefits of having an entrepreneurial spirit, he was a natural from the start. At 16, he began his first business. He bought portable “flashing arrow signs” to rent to businesses, mainly in Abilene. His company took off quickly, and he began earning some real money while still attending high school. Later while attending college, Kirk was also busy courting the love of his life, Jill. The two got married before graduation and completed their time at Angelo State University together. After obtaining his BA in Marketing, he wasn’t sure what direction he wanted to take his future career. He ultimately took a job with the same company as part of a start-up in Sunnyvale, CA, during the height of the tech boom in the ‘90s. He loved the time he spent in California, but once the tech company sold, the couple could not wait to head back to Austin. This move would begin Kirk’s career in real estate. Upon his return to Austin, Kirk became an investor for Better Homes and Gardens Homecity. Once he became entrenched in real estate, he felt he was made to dominate the industry. He opened up The Lewis Residential Group and has been on top of the industry since. He is consistently rated as one of the top Agents in Austin by the Austin Business Journal out of 10,000 Agents. He has also been a member of the Elite 25 Of Austin 12 times, and a Luxury League member in 2017, a past Platinum Top 50 REALTORS, a Top Producing Agent at HomeCity from 2003 to the present, and a member of both the Austin Board of Realtors and the National Association of Realtors. In his free time, Kirk loves spending time with his friends and family, and is an avid artist and pool player. Kirk and Jill have now been happily married for 31 years, and he credits much of his success to his wife and her endless support. “I am very, very lucky to have her,” Kirk says with a smile, as he discusses the numerous ways that Jill has helped build their business. Kirk is also blessed with having a big family, full of nieces and nephews, and great friends that are his best advocates and supporters.
