Congratulations to our top-selling Realtor of 2017, Kiersty Lombar!
As the 2017 top-selling Realtor, Kiersty won the trip of a lifetime to Italy!
All compliments of Santa Rita Ranch, Best of WILCO’s Kiersty Lombar will get a chance to visit where it all began for The Ranch. Italy is where Rita, the Patron Saint of the Impossible, whom our community is named after, was born. Kiersty sold 4 homes in Santa Rita Ranch during the 2017 year and is very passionate about everything Santa Rita stands for. We are excited to be able to award this grand prize to a truly deserving Realtor.
To celebrate Kiersty’s success this past year, we threw a cocktail party and invited all our valued Realtors. We would like to thank everyone for an incredible year. We are looking forward to see what 2018 has in store for Santa Rita Ranch!

Keller Williams 24th Annual Food Drive
Keller Williams Realty and the Central Texas Food Bank partnered together for the 24th Annual Food Drive.

With 23 years supporting the Austin community under our belt, Keller Williams has proudly raised 93,175 meals for families here in the central Texas area!
With the massive storms that have impacted the central Texas area, the Capital Area Food Bank is in greater need than ever to restore its supply. In 2016, Keller Williams raised 14,300 meals and the goal for 2017 was to raise 16,000 meals. Keller Williams and the Austin community pulled together to donate to those in need….

The Santa Rita Ranch Story
Known as the Patron Saint of the Impossible, Santa Rita’s blessings found their way from Cascia, Italy to the New York Stock Exchange, where stock salesmen convinced a group of Catholic nuns to invest in drilling for oil in Texas. Two of the nuns handed Mr. Frank Pickrell an envelope with a red rose blessed by the priest in the name of St. Rita. He took the rose back to Texas, climbed to the top of the derrick, scattered the rose petals over the rig and said, “I hereby christen thee Santa Rita” on May 28, 1923.
Oil blew over the top of the derrick and sprayed the countryside. The income from the Santa Rita No. 1 oil well began the foundation for the Permanent University Fund, which provides financial support in the development of University of Texas at Austin and Texas A&M University systems. The first oil royalty payment to the Permanent University Fund was made on August 24, 1923.
Celebrating our history…
Every year, Ed and Elizabeth Horne present a check to the Liberty Hill ISD and Georgetown Education Fund. Additionally, Santa Rita Ranch residents enjoy the Santa Rita parade, grand opening of pool and 2-story water slides, food, drinks, live music, and activities.
It’s a great time to bring your clients out to the Ranch! We are celebrating Santa Rita all month!
