Get To Know Me

Lyon Gegenheimer graduated from the University of Texas at Austin Architecture School in 1996. Having a background in Architecture has been essential to his success. Lyon often works with developers and investors that are design-building new construction products, or who plan to remodel existing structures. Lyon has personally renovated or rehabilitated over 50 properties. And formed over 30 condominium regimes. Like many of his developers, Lyon is an essential part of the team beginning from site selection and acquisition, through new construction building programming, and architectural redrafts, ending with property disposition.

Lyon began his career in commercial real estate in the Rio Grande Valley working in the Maquiladora industry established through NAFTA. Companies within his client roster included: LG, Bissell, Converse, Victoria’s Secret, Jansport & Nokia. Moving permanently to Austin in 1996 Lyon turned his focus to the residential real estate market, still helping some clients with commercial and investment real estate needs. In 2021 Lyon Gegenheimer celebrated 25 years in the real estate industry. He is the lead broker of the Lyon Real Estate Group at Compass based in Austin, Texas. Lyon Real Estate Group’s goals are to provide the highest level of real estate services available. Honesty, Experience, and Integrity are principles and qualities the brokers and agents demonstrate daily with enthusiasm and solid market knowledge. The reputation of the group is dependent on these values.

Lyon is passionate about design and hospitality. In 2010 Lyon began leasing 3 investment properties just East of downtown Austin as guesthouses through Airbnb, VRBO & HomeAway. “I love entertaining friends and family and hosting guests. I have a degree in Architecture but do not get the opportunity in my professional life to use it. Through property investments and renovations, I get to utilize my design skills and attention to detail. I love remodeling properties and seeing spaces change. When traveling I like to splurge on luxury or historically interesting spaces. My hotel or residence, while out of town, must be relaxing and pampering. Traveling for me is all about exploring the local culture and flavor, especially regional cafes & bars. The design and decor of my guest houses are implemented with the thought, "where would I want to stay?” They are an extension of my love of hospitality and I gain so much pride when my guests have a great stay.” Since 2010 his vacation homes have received over 200 five-star guest reviews.
