Amber Montanio believes that when people are making the biggest financial moves of their lives, they deserve relationship-based representation at the highest level. Since obtaining her license in 2002, she has dedicated her real estate career to providing customized, concierge-style care to her clients. In 2019, she founded Black Label Real Estate Advisors, with a mission of providing clients representation by only the most highly trained, educated, and ethical professionals.
A voracious learner with hundreds of hours of training and many certifications, Amber is well-known for being extra on all fronts — extra-communicative, extra-knowledgeable, and extra-driven. She’s an industry leader with intricate and accurate market knowledge who understands motivating factors, negotiates creative or unexpected wins, and resolves conflicts to fulfill all parties. Amber does it all with a dry sense of humor that puts her clients at ease and direct, decisive guidance that keeps them coming back.
Engaging prospective buyers is Amber’s specialty, and her strong record of increasing price points has earned her exclusive partnerships with several well-known luxury builders and large-scale developers. Amber’s services extend well beyond just a sign in the yard — when listing a property, she coordinates necessary repairs, ensures that staging is impeccable, and orchestrates the best listing photos and videos possible. Then, she uses out-of-the-box marketing techniques to reach the widest audience.
Buyers and sellers alike benefit from Amber’s native knowledge of the region. She grew up in Fair Oaks Ranch and the Boerne area, and she has witnessed explosive growth and market changes along the I-10 corridor. Now a decades-long resident of New Braunfels, Amber has unparalleled knowledge of the housing market across the Texas Hill Country, with a particular focus on the luxury market. The luxury and custom home market is where Amber’s passion — and expertise — becomes obvious. Ever the student, she prides herself on keeping up with the latest building and housing trends, shifts in demographics, marketing techniques, and anything else that can give her clients an edge in an increasingly competitive space.
Another passion for Amber is helping others. She’s passionate about organizations that help children directly or increase awareness of causes such as childhood cancer research. Among the organizations she routinely supports are New Braunfels Angels, Ronald McDonald House, and Boysville. As the 2021 president of the Women’s Council of REALTORS® Hill Country Network, she has made it part of the mission to give back to the community. By pairing events with charitable organizations, the council is able to support a myriad of community-based organizations.
Outside of real estate, Amber can typically be found enjoying the rare day off at home or on the lake with her family. Forever by her side is her husband, Clint, who provides endless support to her business, clients, and Black Label agents, and whom she credits for her ability to follow her passion and drive to her goals. Credited with keeping her feet on the ground are Amber’s two pre-teen daughters, Brooklyn and Delaney, who are always there to remind her that she is really not that cool. A huge animal lover, she is also always surrounded by her five dogs, who always remain happy to see her, even on the roughest of days.
