Our History

Llano Office 2Hill Country Office – The real estate business has always been a part of Mark and Sherrie Virdell’s life, in fact, they both grew up in the business. They opened their first office in 1985, Lone Star Land Company, in a historic building in Llano. With emphasis on marketing area ranches, acreage tracts, and homes, the office soon became a leader throughout the Texas Hill Country. In 1994, they acquired Landmasters Real Estate in Sunrise Beach. In 1995, the Llano office was renamed Landmasters Real Estate – Hill Country office and now offers an expanded service area including Llano, Burnet, Mason, and San Saba Counties.

Highland Lakes Office – Since its beginning in Sunrise Beach in 1975, Landmasters has been a leader in the real estate market, specializing in homes on Lake LBJ. In 1994, Landmasters Real Estate was purchased by Mark and Sherrie Virdell. In 2005, they purchased Thelma Miller Real Estate in Kingsland, and renamed that office as Landmasters Real Estate – Highland Lakes. In 2013, the Sunrise Beach and Kingsland offices were merged and now offers an expanded service area that includes not only Lake LBJ, but Lake Buchanan, Inks Lake, Lake Marble Falls, and both Llano and Burnet Counties. In 2020, Andy and Natalie Virdell purchased the Highland Lakes office. Andy is now the third generation broker and owner of the company, and he and Natalie look forward to upholding the Landmasters tradition for many years to come.
