I've always been equal parts left brained and right brained - logical & passionate, with degrees in Finance and English, and love building the houses I've helped design (including our own.) As a Realtor (R) I realize a buying decision is both a practical & an emotional one. I am patient (with my clients) but proactive (with the market) - often a financial planner...more often a psychiatrist. I am all about market statistics but also love the intangibles that really make a house a home.I began my real estate career in Austin 10 years ago by investing and building mostly in South Austin's 78704 zip code and earned the distinction as an Austin Energy Green Builder after completing a number of highly rated green homes. Today, I prefer helping my clients buy, sell, and sometimes renovate their own slice of Austin. Though not an Austin native, I arrived many years ago to join Austin's live music scene. And after 6 bands, 10 albums, and hundreds upon hundreds of shows, I now enjoy spending most of my time with my wife Catherine, son Eliot, & dog Belle at our green home in South Austin. I still, however, remain an active (albeit, part-time) member of the live music scene and also enjoy playing golf at Lion's, running at Town Lake, and good wine with friends & family.

Bought a Single Family home in 2012 in Austin, TX.

We had the best home buying experience one could wish for, all thanks to Rob Albertson. He was not only consistently dependable, thorough, honest, and timely, but went above and beyond the typical job duties of a realtor. His background in contractor work offered an invaluable array of knowledge and resources. He listened to our wants and needs, took the time to explain and guide us through the entire process from start to finish, and was always on our side to ensure we were satisfied with our investment. Rob is not only a great realtor, but a genuine person that truly cares about what he does.  More Less

Sold a home in 2012.

My experience with Rob as my real estate agent has been outstanding. I have worked with him on both sides of the real estate transaction - as seller and buyer. I trust Rob's guidance and have found his advice to be spot on. He has a great sense of the Austin market city wide and has a keen eye for detail both in the preparation for and marketing of property and the search for potential purchase. He also has a way of zeroing in on the style of home and buyer’s eye of interest. I have appreciated his patience and focus and have both used and been satisfied with his referrals for services and transactions related to real estate.

Rob is great at his job and made selling my home fairly painless. My house sold before I was able to complete 'my perfect home' purchase, but he found a transitional rental condo for me relieving the stress and pressure of jumping into a purchase that would not be right for me.

When it came to finding the right home at the right price in the right location, Rob was there to see the transaction all the way through to completion. There are many real estate agents, companies, and markets in Austin. I am an older person of retirement age. I met Rob through a mutual friend. My experience with Rob as my agent for both selling and buying homes - and changing residential locations in Austin Tx has far and away exceeded any other. I highly recommend him.

Bought a home in 2012.

Rob recently aided my fiance and I in purchasing our first home. We were skeptical of realtors when we first began the whole process, but came out reborn! Rob is a consummate professional who will follow through on all his promises. He will give you honest, unbiased feedback and appreciates picky buyers. He understood all of our needs and was extremely patient, combing the market for 3 months until finding the perfect home for us. He understands the buying process inside and out and guided us masterfully through negotiations and financing. Most importantly, he is ultra-responsive via email and cell and nearly always accessible. Since buying our new place Rob has been instrumental in helping us find sub-contractors for all our needed fixes. His references have all been proven to be honest, top-notch craftsmen. Simply put, Rob's the man! We're still skeptical of all the other realtors out there...  More Less
