Johnnie Rosenauer grew up in the country south of San Antonio. He started his outdoor experiences at an early age on the family farm in eastern Frio County, purchased by his dad’s parents in the late 1930’s. A fourth generation landowner, he still has that property and plans to leave it to his children. Johnnie excelled as a student and athlete in Pearsall and later attended Southwest Texas State University, now called Texas State University, earning a BBA in Marketing and Real Estate. He went on to obtain a Master of Arts in Management and Higher Education from the University of Texas at San Antonio, graduating in their first class in 1974. He received a Doctorate in Adult Education from Texas A&M University in 1984.
Dr. Rosenauer joined the faculty at San Antonio College in 1974 and has served in various capacities for well over 40 years there. He has received many honors as a teacher and mentor and his passion continues for helping students, faculty, and staff. The author or co-author of multiple texts within his discipline of real estate, he has been a frequent speaker with many articles published on topics related to real estate and effective teaching.
Since 1980 Johnnie’s real estate brokerage and consulting practice have centered on sound land stewardship, to include wildlife management. He has worked for a wide variety of property owners, ranging from large trusts with tens of thousands of acres to small family place, often using his own places as a “laboratory” to try innovative practices.
An avid outdoorsman, he considers time in the great outdoors a wonderful therapy for the stressed lifestyle many of us experience. He enjoys introducing his little pieces of La Brasada to others and has found satisfaction in sharing his stories. Johnnie rode and raised American Quarter horses for over 40 years and his horse stories come from these personal interactions.
Johnnie is married to Danell Mackey Rosenauer whose family has farmed and ranched in western Oklahoma since the famous Land Rush days. They have two children and two granddaughters and Johnnie is dedicated to instilling in them a love of the land in whatever path that love may take.
