Like Shakira, Rihanna and Madonna, Kumara is a rock star. Not just in Austin but in the International Real Estate industry too! She is a classic beauty inside and out and we think you should get to know her.
For five consecutive years I have been the number one producer company-wide at Kuper Sotheby’s International Realty, selling over $550M throughout my career. I feel privileged and grateful to have access to the best properties, many of which are never listed in the highly competitive Austin market. In my free time I play tennis, do yoga and enjoy spending time with my family.
Describe your personal style:
My style is classic but with a fresh and feminine twist. I like to be put together but don’t take it too seriously, because getting dressed is fun. When I’m not in work attire, jeans and a cute t-shirt is my go-to outfit. And I love to dress up for special occasions.
Do you have a favorite RB piece or outfit that stands out or is you feel good go-to?
My favorite RedBird piece is a belted black dress with yellow suns on it. It may sound off but it’s such a fun, great dress. I’ve worn it to several events and have even had a lifestyle photoshoot in it. It’s the perfect fit and also stands out as a unique piece that will be in my closet a long time to come!
Why do you shop at RedBird Boutique?
I love that RedBird is a one-stop shop. I can go in last-minute before an event and leave completely styled from head to toe looking perfect for the occasion. They have it all!
What is something people would be surprised to know about you?
I had two successful natural home births with my boys. I chose this because I believe women have the strength and power to do anything we put our minds to such as giving birth, free of drugs and unwanted results. I feel too often hospital births result in changes or an unwanted turn of events with our birthing plans. I had the most amazing midwife and I would highly recommend it to anyone interested in exploring natural births. I guess I’m a hippie at heart.
I never show up to a party empty-handed. I love to bring the host a little gift of my favorite tequila Casa Azul Reposado for everyone to enjoy.
What is your daily mantra?
I wake up every morning and choose joy. It is so healthy for us to constantly remind ourselves that happiness is a choice.
What is your biggest pet peeve?
Negative energy. I really try to keep positive spirits at all times.
Who has been your greatest mentor in business? In life?
My mom is my rock. Everyone who knows her loves her and looks up to her for her positive spirit and selfless loving energy.
What is the best advice you’ve been given?
The mind is incredibly powerful. You have the power to at any moment to change your state with a mindset and choose the life that you want to create.
I once was persuaded to jump off a mountain with a parachute The scariest part was signing your life away before you did it but once I was gliding through the sky like a bird, I felt amazing and free. Gotta love that adrenaline rush.
How would you like to be remembered?
As much as I love my career, it is not my career goals that I truly strive to be remembered by. I hope to be remembered by uplifting those around me, being a positive light and making a difference in the world.
