OUR FOCUS IS YOU
We know that buying or selling of any kind requires providing enough information and guidance so our clients can make the best decision for their needs. Our goal is to always earn your referrals, and that keeps us focused on providing the best service you have ever had from a real estate professional.
We strive to create generational relationships with our clients by earning their trust at every step—through a real estate transaction or by providing support long after the sale.
For over 70 years, our team has worked with buyers and sellers in the residential, commercial, luxury and farm & ranch space to providing excellent service on a consistent basis.
We serve our clients by maintaining up-to-date knowledge of the market and our communities by supporting non-profits and engaging with city governments.

Ariel Brooks-Stevens is a REALTOR and partner at Hill Country Home and Land. After spending much of her life moving from State to State and to Europe and back a few times, Ariel found Boerne and has been living in the Hill Country since 2003. Ariel’s background in Finance and Project Management and her love of people have made real estate a perfect profession for her.
Ariel has built her business around servant leadership and trust. She has the honor of working by referral because clients know that she works hard and are excited to pass her name along to family and friends. Real Estate suits her love of people, problem solving and her love of a good challenge. This career has allowed her to meet people who have enriched her life and that of her family. Ariel and her husband, Mark, are raising 3 boys who keep life pretty busy but terribly fun.
Growing up in Corpus Christi gave me a strong love of the beach, but when I moved to the Texas Hill country, I fell in love!
Before my real estate career, I graduated from the University of Texas at Austin, owned an Interior Design Business in Houston, and experienced exciting and different cultures living in Azerbaijan and Angola. I am a proud native Texan, a member of the National Society Daughters of the American Revolution, a Director with the Texas Alliance of Land Brokers and an associate of the National Realtors Land Institute.
I am recently married and along with my husband, we are exploring Texas, working near canyons, state and national parks, rivers, farms and ranches.
I am looking forward to successful and rewarding relationships with my new Brokerage, Hill Country Home & Land in Boerne, Texas.
