p.s. a % of ALL my commissions goes to charity/help organizations if that makes a difference to you. Joe
Obviously, you will have a lot of good agents to choose from for your trip. I am a ten year top producing agent with Keller Williams and I am very experienced with clients from out of town/state. I have a good feel for the most important neighborhood issues which concern buyers, such as rates of appreciation, typical days on the market, ease of resale, school systems, etc. I am on the Austin MLS Board of Directors (chairman, 2009) and the Austin Board of Realtors Board of Directors. I have references available if you would like to speak with my clients. Please feel free to call, text, or email if you have any questions. Good luck and....WELCOME!!!! Take care.

My advice is make sure to work with a Buyers Agent and not the Listing Agent of any property you are interested in. The Listing Agents primary goal/responsibility is to get the best/highest price for their client, the seller. Trulia is a great place to find an agent to help you with the search and purchase. Please let me know if I can help. Feel free to check out my website and previous answers on Trulia to determine if we might be a good match. i wish you the best in your home search!

You've got plenty of choices to pick from however if you're interested in the lake areas I can help you most with my knowledge and expertise around Lake area properties. I can also send you my buyers guide that will walk you through the transaction process used in the State of Texas. Each state is a little different and my guide will make it very straight forward and understandable.
All the best on your visit.

You are doing the right thing by seeking a buyer's agent. As you can see, there are many of us in Austin who would take care of you and do our best to help you find the right place. My advice to you is to call several of us and get a feel for our style and personalities. Then choose the realtor with whom you feel the most comfortable. I would love to be that realtor. Thanks and good luck!
ps. If you don't choose me consider Kevin Scanlan. He's a good guy whom I've known for a very long time.

1. Why should I choose you as my Buyer's agent?
2. What services do you offer? (Do you have a team to assist me? Lenders? Service Providers? Movers?) These services may help you before and after the sale to minimize your expenses.
3. Do you have a strategic plan which will increase the odds of getting the best deal in the best possible market area? What is your research to back up this plan? How will you execute the plan? What proof do you have of your plan's success?
4. How will you communicate with me?
5. What are the top 3 things that differentiate you from other agents?
6. Will you provide me a list of past clients I may contact?
Patrick, I along with all my team are Certified Negotiation Experts and have a wealth of knowlege in the condo and downtown markets.
Here is a testimonial from just one of our many relocation clients :
â€œThe team at Goldwasser Real Estate is spectacular! This was my very first home purchase, and the people at Goldwasser made the experience so pleasant. From my agent to the transaction manager, everyone I dealt with here was attentive, prompt, professional, and very client-oriented. I work in a service-related industry, and it is refreshing to find a company representing itself as a service-minded organization, rather than just a medium between the seller and myself. Many thanks from a very satisfied customer. You all went above and beyond."

Of course I'd love to help...however, if your company is relocating you, have you checked with them first? Companies have often negotiated a "deal" with a real estate company and/or REALTOR, and if you want help with closing costs, moving expenses, etc, you may have to use that agent. If your company has not contracted with a relo office, please let me know what your parameters are (size, price, priorities) and I'm sure I can help you find the perfect home!
BTW, Austin is the ideal place for a twenty-thrity something single!

The area you are looking to relocate to is littered with amazing places, eateries and so forth. It would be beneficial to have an agent that is extremely familiar with the area since there are so many hidden treasures.
Please call or email at any time. It is my hope that you will find your trip to Austin a memorable one!

You'll have a number of agents to choose from! I am a certified relocation specialist, an Austin native, and I have a great deal of experience giving a great tour of Austin to a buyer who is not familiar with the city. I can do all the research for you based on your interests, price range and housing preferences.
I had out of town buyers in last week in a similar situation to yours and we had a great day. We toured properties ranging from out on Lake Travis to Central Austin bungalows to downtown condos. We were able to eliminate several parts of town in order to focus more specifically on the areas that captured their interest. I can help you zero in a areas where you'll feel happy and can help you locate a home you'll be excited to come home to after a busy day at work.
I'd love to touch base by phone or email - Heather: 512-789-1871 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
