About Casoro

In the Fall of 2006,

Casoro Group moved its offices from Seattle, Washington to the beautiful Hill Country that is Austin, Texas. Despite the changes in the financial markets, the company managed to grow its portfolio of clients. Casoro Group ranked 11th in INC. Magazine’s annual ranking of the Fastest Growing Real Estate Companies in the country in 2010, climbing up from 47th place in 2009. The worldwide pandemic did not deter the team as they were recognized in 2021 for multiple awards, including Best Places to Work.
