Escalation clauses are technically allowed in Texas if drafted by an attorney (but TREC advises against them.) That said, we almost always advise against using an escalation clause. Here’s our company policy regarding escalation clauses. Problem 1 – contractually worthless “Buyer to pay $1000 above highest received offer up to…

The first step in converting a lead into a client is to make meaningful contact with that person. Meaningful contact is generally a phone conversation or an in-person meeting. (It’s possible to do so by text or email, but rare.) At this point, you need to demonstrate value to your…

There is a lot of bad advice & misinformation in our industry with regards to working leads. Facebook discussion groups are the worst. You will find Facebook real estate groups filled with inexperienced and/or unproductive agents discussing how they “deal with clients”. The funny thing is that most of these…

My Realtor, Tyson Hombroek, was incredibly knowledgeable and professional. He helped me find the perfect new construction home for me, and he made sure to follow up with the builder consistently to keep them on track and get the job done right. Tyson helped me get through my first homebuying experience seamlessly and stress free. Tyson went above and beyond and I would 10/10 recommend him to anybody looking for the best homebuying experience.

Matthew H.

It was a pleasure working with Alex Ellis during our search for a lot in the Austin area. Alex was very knowledgeable of the Austin market and surrounding areas, and always quick to respond whenever we had any questions or concerns. Alex always kept our best interests in mind and helped the entire process go as smoothly as possible. I look forward to working with him for many years to come!

I’ve worked with Jeremy Vandermause twice in the past 4 years and have had an excellent experience. Thoughtful, thorough, and truly takes your best interests to heart as he works FOR YOU. Strong recommendation for any type of buyer trying to wrap their head around the Austin market.

Customer S.

My experience with Jeremy Vandermause as my realtor has been a phenomenal experience. I’m extremely thankful that I got setup with someone who is passionate and truly cares about what you want in a home. He took a lot of the stress off of finding a new home, especially in an area that I am brand new to as I moved to the Austin area less than 6 months before purchasing this home. If you are looking for a new home or are a first time home buyer like myself, I definitely recommend Jeremy as he is knowledgeable in homes and in the areas he services while also being as particular as you are in finding the best deals on the market. He doesn’t waste your time with houses he knows you won’t like and digs until he finds something matching your criteria. He also helped me sell a home 6 months later, which was as smooth as purchasing. Thanks for everything Jeremy! It’s been a real pleasure working with you.

Linda Baddour continues to amaze- I could not recommend her enough. I’ve worked with her twice now, and she never fails to deliver. Whether you’re a first-time homebuyer or looking for your next home, she is an incredible resource and always puts your best interests first. You’re in great hands if you work with Linda!

Yuthika Agarwalla

We had a very good experience working with Craig McGuire for our house hunting needs! He was very prompt, professional, and made us feel very supported across the entire process. Craig’s well rounded and extensive background in real estate was a huge asset to have. He’s extremely knowledgeable about the Austin real estate market. Ultimately we got the house we wanted, quickly, at the price we desired, and with the contingencies we needed. Thanks Craig!!

Jeremy K

I worked with Jeremy Vandermause to buy my first home. Jeremy was so patient throughout the process (which I definitely dragged out as I gathered all the facts). He consistently sent me homes I was interested in and was eager to show them off, and on the odd occasions where I found one he hadn’t already seen he always made himself available to walk through with me. He was very helpful in those walkthroughs pointing out home features I would have missed, or providing context on neighborhood. As a native Austinite, he definitely knows the history and cultural fabric of the city and each neighborhood. I started with close to zero knowledge of the home-buying process and Jeremy walked me through every step with clarity and patience. So excited about the home I now own! Plus, he’s just a legit cool dude. I always really enjoyed our conversations and could tell from the start he was someone worth knowing in Austin

I highly recommend working with Alex Ellis and am so thankful he helped us last year to close on a lot for our future dream home. Alex is thoughtful, takes time to explain the process, and goes the extra mile to communicate. He was an especially valuable thought partner during the negotiation to close the deal. I look forward to partnering again on future transactions!

Buying a house in today’s Austin market is a daunting proposition, but Kasey Gilliam made it as easy as possible. I was buying my first home and had lots of questions (not to mention the questions I wouldn’t even think to ask) – Kasey was great with all of it! Patient, diligent, and always there to guide me through it. She worked tirelessly to make sure I found the right house that met my needs and fell within my budget. Kasey was invaluable when it came time for closing. I didn’t know the first thing about how the process worked, and she guided me through every step. I can’t recommend working with Kasey enough!!

Sam Reicks

I worked with Jeremy Vandermause. He was great! He was very available and flexible. Over a couple months we ended up submitting 20+ offers and viewing tons of properties, often with last-minute notice. In the end he found a FSBO property that he connect me with. I never could have found it without all his help and work.

Natalie Blanco

Have been working with Alex for the past 2 years and it’s been amazing! I’ve bought 3 homes and sold 2. Alex E. is so communicative, friendly, has my best interest in mind and is just a joy to work with. Highly recommend
