Salt Homes, LLC is a full-service, boutique real estate brokerage specializing in residential properties in Austin. We welcome everyone from the first-time home buyer to the seasoned homeowner.
Jane Amschwand, owner and broker of Salt Homes, LLC, has lived in Austin for twenty years. Born in Toronto, Canada, she moved with her family to Texas at the age of nine. After graduating from U.T. with a Bachelor of Journalism, she headed to the Big Apple where she worked in publishing for Interview and Art In America magazines. Afterwards, Jane worked for many years in a variety of social work positions. This experience has contributed to one of real estate’s most important roles – advocating for her clients.
In honor of her brother, Tom, and her mother, Kathryn, who both passed away from sarcoma cancer, Jane helped found the Amschwand Sarcoma Cancer Foundation (www.sarcomacancer.org), a non-profit organization dedicated to assisting persons affected by this rare disease. Jane has served as an Executive Board member since its inception in 2001.
Two of her favorite hobbies are photography and jewelry design. She’s worked with editorial, fashion, wedding, portrait and commercial photographers on shoots ranging from the Austin American-Statesman, Texas Monthly, Tribeza, and the Austin Chronicle to CD covers and promotional materials for musical artists such as Patti Griffin, Mary Chapin Carpenter and 38 Special. Jane's jewelry has been featured in several Austin boutiques: Westlake Jewelers, Gossip, Parts & Labor, and Luxe and worn by the actress Winona Ryder.
The purchase of Jane’s first investment home inspired her love for real estate. Jane lives in a 60s contemporary house in Delwood with her husband and two cats. Armed with a strong set of ethics and fierce negotiating skills, Jane would love to show you what sets her apart from other agents.
