Drew Johnson

Owner + Broker


Originally from Ft. Worth, Texas, Drew fell in love with the city of Austin as a kid when he was captivated by its eclectically progressive lifestyle and music scene. Drew spent four years at Trinity University earning his degree in Business Marketing, during which time he spent a semester abroad in Sevilla, Spain.

Upon landing in Austin in 2010, Drew hit the ground running by becoming a top apartment locator in Austin before leveling-up to be a Realtor to help folks with buying homes. But being just a Realtor wasn't enough, and Drew had a vision for a brokerage that did both sales and apartment locating at a high level. With this dual expertise, Drew founded Austin Craft Realty in early 2016.

In late 2019, Drew decided to pivot his company towards the fast-paced, fun, and opportunity-friendly apartment locating industry. Already experts in the field, ACR was re-branded to Craft Apartment Locators in October and is no longer be associated with the Austin Board of Realtors. Drew is very excited for the opportunities that come with focusing on what his company does best: helping Austinites find fantastic deals on Austin apartments.

While Drew is no longer a Realtor himself, he has excellent connections in real estate and is happy to recommend a great Realtor to you.

When Drew isn’t working hard to constantly improve Craft Apartment Locators, you might find him bicycling around town, serving on the board of the Young Men’s Business League, playing saxophone at some of Austin's best venues, and enjoying the latest craft brews. He is a proud homeowner in the exciting and vibrant East Austin 78702.
