Growing up near Stuttgart, Arkansas, the Duck Hunting Capital of the World, Dusty developed his love for fishing and hunting at an early age. His father, and iron worker, introduced him to the construction trade which led to his interest in engineering. Dusty earned his Bachelors degree in Mechanical Engineering at the University of Arkansas. He quickly began his career as a project manager and mechanical contractor, building multi-million dollar municipal, industrial, and commercial sites such as paper mills, chemical plants, shopping malls, airports, and universities.
While helping to raise their three children, Dusty's wife was a successful full-time Realtor®. Soon, Dusty became interested in real estate from an investment standpoint. He bought and sold many single-family residences and developed a wide variety of commercial and office properties, including a convenience store/restaurant complex and mobile home park, which he personally operated as second business. "What sets me apart from other Realtors® is the depth and breadth of my experience," Dusty says. "I've been an entrepreneur and developed my own projects, as well as worked for Fortune 500 companies, engineers, development groups, and architects."
After his long and successful career, Dusty relocated to Austin to be closer to his daughters and grandchildren. His eldest, Paula Greenfield, was juggling a young family with her flourishing real estate business, The Greenfield Group. So in 2009, she invited Dusty to join her business as a partner. Ever since, they have been serving Austin's homebuyers and sellers as a dynamic duo. They work with a diverse range of clients including families, professionals, entrepreneurs, seniors, and buyers relocating from out of town. He and Paula also specialize in helping sophisticated clients buy and sell higher-end luxury homes in exclusive neighborhoods.
