With 40 years of real estate brokerage experience while personally handling more than $300,000,000 million in sales of over 600,000 acres throughout Texas, New Mexico, Oklahoma and beyond, W. K. “Skip” Shumpes has earned a reputation for integrity driven results. He and his wife, Liz, relocated to Boerne in 1983 from Liz’s native El Paso. They identified Boerne with its stellar school system and rural charm as the ideal place to raise a family.
The Shumpes have endeavored to help maintain Boerne’s position of leadership in the region through continued major civic contributions of time and service. Skip spent many a night at Boerne ISD meetings where he served as a trustee for 9 years, plus another 5 years on the first elected board of the Cow Creek Groundwater Conservation District of Kendall County. His board involvement is currently limited to serving as a director for the Trust Company of San Antonio. The Shumpes’ evenings are now often passed following the progress of their 6’ 6” sophomore son, Will, and his basketball teammates at TMI – The Episcopal School of Texas near Leon Springs. Additionally, the extended Shumpes family has been blessed with grandchildren thanks to older daughters Laura Landrum of Washington State and Alexis Weigand of San Antonio. It was at Alexis’ urging that Skip and Liz decided to join the powerhouse Keller Williams team by merging their two and one half decades old W.K. Shumpes Co. into the Keller Williams Luxury/Farm & Ranch office in their Dominion Road office.
Liz has garnered a reputation as a top flight gourmet chef, as well as first class luxury residential agent with over 20 years experience in the business. Her food blog, www.lizskitchen.wordpress.com, is followed by foodies around the globe as a source for recipes and tips for tasty and healthy good eats. She has also earned a well deserved reputation as a skilled culinary hostess at the frequent dinner parties held at their Highlands Ranch home. Skip’s primary responsibility is to provide the chef and guests with appropriately paired wine to keep all in good spirits.
Skip’s business passion is truly two-fold: people and photography. Respect for all parties to a transaction is the key to success in real estate. He strives to make sure both sides have a positive experience – literally Win/Win, or no deal. His collection of high end camera equipment is legendary, but it is the application of all of these photographic tools that helps him to showcase his clients’ real estate in its best possible light. While Skip and Liz sell a variety of property types, Skip is recognized as the area’s leading expert on luxury estates that feature a significant land component.
Say Skip and Liz of their real estate careers “We have been truly blessed to have experienced lives full of joy and meaning, while making many enduring friends along the way. The best part, there are still more people to help and friends to be made.”
W. K. “Skip” Shumpes is one of the most experienced land salesmen in Texas with 40 years & several 100 Million $ in Farm & Ranch + Commercial sales.

The Texas Hill Country has served as inspiration for his passion as a landscape photographer, much as his wife, Liz, has kindled his interest in travel & food adventures complemented with a keen appreciation of the talents of vintners around the world.
