Home Improvement, Interior Design,


Shay Millheiser is a successful Austin designer, investor, home renovator, and realtor with Sotheby’s International Realty. She’s bought, renovated, designed and sold hundreds of properties since beginning her real estate business seven years ago. Since the age of twenty-two, Shay has helped hundreds of families buy, re-design and furnish their dream homes. A top-notch agent, Shay has sold $35 million in real estate since January 2020.

She understands the nuances of buying, selling and renting… from tips and tricks on maximizing real estate investments for wealth and equity, to creating high quality design on a budget. She even guides her clients through full gut jobs, fixer upper renovations and neglected rundown properties.

Her ability to also pick up a hammer and chainsaw scored her a pilot on HGTV as the host of Flipping Austin. The show documented Shay’s house flipping and design talents through the renovation of a rundown 1950s ranch home. She and her team transformed the property into a gorgeous urban bungalow equipped with a backyard pool and a separate guest casita. After beautifully staging the interior, Shay listed the home and sold it for double it’s buying price.


Shay has extensive TV experience and has appeared several times on Inside Edition, Fox & Friends and Good Day Philadelphia sharing DIY tips on easy and inexpensive home upgrades.


Shay renovated her first property when she was a full-time college student. She was immediately hooked and continued flipping homes for sweat equity until she had enough money to invest in her own deals.

She works with people from all walks of life including investors, luxury clients, first time home buyers and professional athletes. Shay’s guided them through the process of buying, designing, renovating and selling real estate. While she’s been wildly successful flipping homes over the years, her true passion is working with clients to achieve their own real estate success. This means developing real estate for profit, renovating forever homes or taking outdated homes and turning them into show-stoppers.

Shay was recently featured on  where she was interviewed on what it’s like to work in a field dominated by men.
