Our History

Hill Country Office

Mark and Sherrie Virdell hold a long tradition of real estate service in their families – both have parents who were in the business. In 1985, they restored a historic building at 504 Bessemer in Llano and opened their first real estate office, Lone Star Land Company.  In 1994, they acquired Landmasters Real Estate in Sunrise Beach, a longtime leader in Lake LBJ properties, from Sherrie’s father, Herb Stehling.  In 1995, the Llano office was renamed Landmasters Real Estate, and the 100 year old building at 801 Bessemer Avenue became the new home of the Hill Country office.  In 2010, needing more room for a growing business, an addition to the original building brought the current office up to modern standards.

Highland Lakes Office

Since its beginning in Sunrise Beach in 1975, Landmasters has been a leader in the area, specializing in homes on Lake LBJ. In 1994, Mark and Sherrie Virdell, who owned Lone Star Land Company in Llano, purchased Landmasters Real Estate in Sunrise Beach.  In 2005, the Virdell’s purchased Thelma Miller Real Estate in Kingsland, at 1305 W Ranch Road 1431 - a location that had been a real estate office since the 1950’s.  In 2013, the Sunrise Beach and Kingsland offices were merged at the Ranch Road 1431 location, offering an expanded service area that includes not only Lake LBJ, but Lake Buchanan, Inks Lake, Lake Marble Falls, and all of Llano and Burnet Counties.

In 2020, Andy and Natalie Virdell purchased the Kingsland location. Andy is now the third generation broker and co-owner of Landmasters Real Estate Highland Lakes. Their young family is very much a part of the community and contributes their time and effort to making Kingsland a thriving, successful place.  Most of their growing business comes from referrals from past clients, and they continue to uphold the Landmasters tradition of integrity, knowledge, and hard work.
