Marketing Agency Hired to Drive Strategy for New Austin Development

AUSTIN, TX, Sept. 27, 2016 — Catalyst, an Austin-based agency specializing in marketing for student and multifamily housing, announced today that Walton RRA Homes LLC has hired the agency to develop and execute a marketing strategy for its newest residential property development in Austin. Catalyst will engage in a full branding effort on behalf of Walton including naming, logo design, overall look and feel, website design and development, and marketing collateral.

The 12-unit, boutique community is being developed in the heart of East Austin and will have condos available for purchase as early as mid-October. All units are three bedroom, two-and-a-half bath with the same finishes, same layout, and same price. Catalyst was selected specifically for the agency’s ability to find unique ways to market the units to multiple target markets.

“We are thrilled that Walton RRA Homes LLC recognized our capability to drive prospective buyer interest before they ever step foot inside a property,” said Jamie Matusek, Vice President at Catalyst. “We have a proven track record of successful campaigns that reach target audiences, get prospective buyers through the door, and help them connect emotionally to a property. We are confident that our work will directly impact the Walton’s bottom line and get the new community’s units sold faster.”

“We are excited about this project and the opportunity to partner with Catalyst,” said Raymond Chow, Senior Managing Partner at Walton RRA Homes LLC. “The property is in a neighborhood that boasts a combination of established homes and new developments.  We know the market can be extremely competitive and reaching the right buyers is key to a successful venture, specifically those interested in a community atmosphere with quick access to downtown Austin and the surrounding areas.  We look forward to leveraging Catalyst’s expertise to reach individuals who enjoy a sense of community – and the amenities that go along with it.”

The development is located at 1104 Walton Lane and all 12 units will be completed by March 2017.
