FLASHBACK Founding Chair and STRÜB Residential Founder Mark Strüb created this charity event in an effort to engage Austin’s next generation of philanthropists. Along with his wife and business partner, Christy Strüb, plus help from a dedicated crew of talented volunteers, they’ve managed to sustain a wild annual party that gives back to our community and encourages Austinites to live by the STRÜB motto: “Doing Well by Doing Good.”

“Man, do we look forward to this event every year,” says Christy Strüb, Chief Operating Officer (COO) of Strüb Residential. “It’s truly a remarkable sensation when we realize at 1 a.m. as we’re packing everything up and loading out and realize that, whoa, a room full of outrageous costumes and wicked-cool people basically just danced to throwback jams for five hours while managing to raise ten of thousands of dollars for a local charity! Every year on this night, the results make me pretty dang proud to be an Austinite.”

“This ‘80s and ‘90s dance party is a charity ‘FUNdraiser’ targeting our vibrant young professional community at the heart of what makes Austin the number one place to live and work,” said Mark Strüb. “The event is for anyone who loves the music, fashion and fads of days gone by.”

In addition to announcing FLASHBACK, STRÜB Residential is so excited to kick off their second decade in business by purchasing a beautiful new office space in the heart of Old West Austin located at 1210 Parkway, Austin, Texas 78703. STRÜB will be moving into the space at the end of January. There will be an invite only grand opening happy hour event on Thursday, March 1.

“Putting down some roots is an important part of our next phase,” says Mark Strüb. “Owning our own office with more space is important to us, our agents, and our growth as a company. High visibility in a historic Austin neighborhood like Clarksville is important in setting the tone for our clients and our agents. The same concepts that drive our clients into homeownership have compelled STRÜB to seek a permanent address, or what we like to call ‘STRÜB World Headquarters.’”

About Mark Strüb:

In 2000, Mark moved from Phoenix to Austin, and in 2004, he purchased his first home. That experience was an epiphany: he connected to the process in a profound way. It’s no exaggeration to say the experience changed his life. Mark realized he could enjoy a truly fulfilled life helping others buy and sell little pieces of this beautiful city.

STRÜB Residential was founded in Austin, Texas by Mark Strüb after working as an independent REALTOR in three different companies. His experience with each brand was vastly different from the other presenting a well-rounded view of the business and the various ways it can be modeled. Taking the best of each plus something new from every transaction, STRÜB Residential strives to establish a firm yet evolving foundation for success supporting clients and sponsored REALTORS alike. Since 2004, Mark has helped hundreds of clients buy and sell properties – from five-figure investments to seven-figure dream homes – throughout the Austin Metro Area. Mark is personally invested in rental properties and he’s renovated and remodeled many homes.  A firsthand knowledge of the various intricacies of real estate has given him a deep level of empathy for every type of client, resulting in a rare level of concierge-style service.

He’s consequently held’s #1 rating and has been consistently recognized by the Austin Business Journal as one of the most successful REALTORS in Austin. But real estate isn’t Mark’s only passion. He sincerely believes that loving your community means giving back to it, not just with money, but more importantly with time and talent. In 2017, Mark was recognized as a community leader with an Austin Under 40 Award for both his business accomplishments and charitable impact. He supports many Austin charities and is the founding chair of an annual event called FLASHBACK that exists to engage Austin’s next generation of philanthropists. Of all his accomplishments, nothing gives Mark more pride than the starring role he plays in the lives of his family: his stüpendous sons, Jack and Maxim, his precious daughter, Rhône, and his überWIFE and business partner, Christy. Truly, every day is better than the last at chezSTRÜB on Balcones Drive in beautiful West Austin.


About Christy Strüb:

After completing a bachelor’s degree in communications from Colorado State University, Christy moved to Austin in search of the “right” job. She wasn’t interested in typical employment – she sought unique opportunities, eventually touring with the country music band Sugarland as a Fan Relations Coordinator. When Christy met and married Mark, she found that she shared his vision for helping others find their own unique piece of Austin. In 2012, she obtained her real estate license and joined him in making that dream a reality, spending over two joyful and successful years selling real estate in the Capital City. In the summer of 2014, though, things changed. Their son, Maxim James, was born, and it became clear that her role would shift. Between the immediacy of the market and the growth of the STRÜB team of überAGENTS, a more internally focused role became her new passion. Instead of primarily concentrating on clients, she was über-focused on the STRÜB Residential team. These days she finds no shortage of unique opportunities, moving quickly from management to accounting, marketing to business development and recruiting to event planning. She even jumps in as personal assistant when duty calls! Life gets richer and richer, and in Feb. 2016, Mark and Christy welcomed their little girl, Rhône EmilyAnn, to their family. Christy now spends her weeks balancing her dual roles as COO of STRÜB Residential and COO at home and, on the weekends, she enjoys squeezing in every possible moment of fun in the Austin sun. …in between naps.
