2020 PT50 Semi-Finalists

Platinum Top 50 Austin is excited to announce the 180 agents who have qualified as PT50 semi-finalists in 2020. These semi-finalists were selected based on their professional and personal achievements which make them valuable assets to the industry, the community, and their clients.
