About Our Team

David Johnson – Owner/Broker, Property Manager

David Johnson has more than 18 years of experience in real estate, a lifetime of experience in Austin's constantly evolving physical and corporate landscape, and, to date, 10 years of experience as a proud father. He has successfully developed a versatile practice including residential sales, residential and commercial property management/leasing and investment property sales.

A native Austinite, David grew up in Westlake Hills, attended Westlake High school, and received his degree in Psychology from Texas State University. David feels every Realtor should be held to the highest standards and ethical practices. He is serving his 9th year on the Professional Standards Committee for the Austin Board of Realtors.

Despite his professional success, David is most proud of his family. His daughter Madisen, 10 years old, and son Jake, 6, are the crowning achievements for him and wife, Ronda. David never misses a chance to hangout with Jake and attempt to teach him to swing a golf club, or an opportunity to hear about the exciting happenings of the classroom from Madisen. Watching his children grow and learn new things every day is an absolute joy for this proud father.

Kathy Walton-Shankle

Kathy is a Texan, born and raised. Her husband, Glenn’s career as a professional musician has taken them from her home town, El Paso, to Longview and now to Central Texas. She began her career in property management in 2002 after meeting David Johnson while shopping for a home in the Austin area. The meeting turned out to be fortuitous on two fronts – she and Glenn found a home in Kyle and she found a wonderful place to work with David in what has become Westbank Management Group. Her ability to manage the day-to-day running of the office has allowed the company to continue to grow in the investment property management field. Hers is the voice you’ll most likely hear answering your call and the face greeting you when you visit our office.
