Jon made the process of finding a rental home much easier than I expected it to be. He is helpful knowledgeable and easy to contact. I will contact him again in the near future when a move is necessary.
Thanks for everything Jon!
I worked with Jonathan from December 2010 - April 2011. We built a house in southwest Austin and he was great from start to finish. He helped us to pick a neighborhood, builder and even to help negotiate the price with the builder's sales office. We love our new home and think we got a great deal thanks to Jonathan's advice. I have recommended him to several friends who are buying houses in the near future.
Bought a Single Family home in 2011 in Holly, Austin, TX.
My business partner and I met with various realtors and decided to use Jon to help us find a lot to build a spec home. We discussed with Jon some of our basic items we wanted in a lot. A few months later, Jon called me on a Saturday saying there was a new listing which was a great deal and in a great area, but we needed to act that day. Even though I was out of town, I decided to end my trip early and come back that afternoon. We went and looked at the property and submitted an offer by 9 pm Saturday night. The offer was accepted by Sunday morning.
Highly recommend him and will use him going forward.
Never returns phone calls or emails. Don't know how he stays in business.
Response from Jonathan on 03/20/2012
I am sorry we were never able to get in contact with each other. It does get very tough to provide mutilple people with CMA's and opinions of value based on an online listing. Again, thanks for contacting me and sorry I was unable to help you.
Jon Rue is the consummate professional! We were living in Nashville and relocating to Austin but did not have a realtor or much knowledge of the area where we needed to live. Jon came to our rescue! He was always quick to respond to my questions, prepared when I was in town to view homes and found different types of houses in our price range. Ultimately, he located the house we now live in and was able to secure a very reasonable price and get all the necessary paper work completed via email and phone (we were not able to fly into Austin prior to choosing our home). With a multitude of choices in real estate professionals in the greater Austin area, my choice will always be Jon Rue!
Bought a Single Family home in 2010 in Austin, TX.
Jon helped me with the purchase of my 1st investment property. I had been looking at houses on the MLS for several months and I was about to give up on my search as every house I liked seemed to be a little out of my price range. I then hired Jon and within a month he found the perfect home for me. Even better, it was in the very low range of my price. I also used Jon to list the house for me and it was rented within 5 days!! Overall, I couldn’t have asked for a better experience.
Sold a Single Family home in 2011 in East Cesar Chavez, Austin, TX.
Jon listed and sold my home in 3 days and we received 2 offers for full asking price. He made the process very easy. He told us when we interviewed him that photos are the most important item in listing a home since most home searches are done via the internet. He didn't go cheap as with many realtors. He hired a professional photographer to take and edit the pictures. We had over 10 showings that first weekend and 2 full offers!
