Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $225K in Austin, TX.
My husband and I highly recommend Sean! He found us a house that we absolutely love!!! And if that's not enough, we had a great time in the process! Sean has a fantastic sense of humor and is so laid-back. He's a straight shooter and does not try to sell you anything you don't want. The experience felt more like going to look at houses with a very knowledgeable friend, which was great (especially because I do not respond well to pushy, unscrupulous people).
I'm so happy we picked Sean, not only because we now have a fantastic home, but because he made the whole experience so wonderful!

Sean was a great relator to work with. As a first time home buyer, he thoroughly explained every step of the process and was always receptive to questions and comments. Sean kept the process fun and stress free.
Sean is extremely honest and helpful. Sean is not pushy and will help you find a house you will proudly call home! I really appreciated the fact that Sean would point out all of the good things as well as the not so good things regarding houses and neighborhoods. Sean is a breath of fresh air in the Austin real estate market.

My family and I have been searching for a home in the Austin area for nearly 2 years when we came across Sean. He was easy going while my family was frantic!! Buying just the right home, school districts, price range, and commute to work for my husband were ALL huge factors....he found the perfect place for us!! Thank you so much for helping us through this stressful process with such patience and ease. We truly appreciate you!

Working with Sean took the anxiety out of what can be a very stressful process. Sean is knowledgeable, direct, and flexible. He showed us several homes that fit what we described to him as what we were looking for, and was spot on. He read our reactions to places extremely well and took this into account with the subsequent viewings. Working with him was enjoyable as well. Sean Is a great guy and made viewings fun. He also knows a great deal about what a home would need in terms of updating or repairs and can advise you on how these things can affect your decision. We definitely trusted Sean with the negotiations and he did very well for us. We have been in this home for over 4 years now and still have a great feeling about how the buying process went. We are in the right home and Sean is to thank for this. We would use him in the future and recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell a home in the Austin area.

I decided to hire Sean based on his yelp reviews, despite interviewing several other recommended agents and I'm so glad I did! We wanted to buy a vacation home in Austin and he helped me narrow down the search to a very specific, highly desirable area. When a home came up he was on top of it. We ended up bidding on it sight unseen and having to sign all the papers while out of Austin. This could have been such a difficult process, but it was so simple and smooth. There were actually multiple bids on the house, but we made one offer and it was accepted! And we closed 3 weeks later, so quick and easy. Finally recently we got it all set up and had our first family vacation there and it's so perfect I had to give Sean a big hug. Some notes about Sean, he has a totally Austin vibe. He might look like he just rolled out of bed, but he is with it. Often I would ask for information and he had it to me within hours. If he was 10 minutes late he would let me know. If I was late he was totally relaxed about it though.his communication and contacts are top notch. I was in Austin by myself to set the house up, he met me straight off the plane at the house. When I said the yard needed to be taken care of he had someone there within a couple hours. I can't imagine having gone through this with anyone but Sean. Most people tell me finding and buying a house is not usually this easy. I know some people have mentioned they're sad not to see him again, but I like to think we're friends now.
I originally ran into Sean as a landlord and leased his property. He was awesome, took care of house issues we ran into and was prompt about everything. He's very laid back and even dropped by with a 12 pack to welcome us into the house when we were moving in. When my lease was close to being up I decided to looking into owning a house. I ended up using Sean as my realtor as well since he ended up being such an awesome landlord and very professional. He has been in Austin forever and even though I was on a smaller budget than he's used to, he gave me the same time and knowledge about the market that he would anyone. We went hunting for close to 6 months in East Austin and he was incredibly patient and informative. He let me know when a house was worth it and could be remodeled reasonably. He let me know when they were overpriced or underpriced and when we just needed to move on to the next one because they were too much of a dump. He even recommended a good lender that worked to get me some state and local funding/grants. He was supportive and very chill to hang out with. Even though he was a landlord turned realtor, really I think of him as a friend. Definintely get Sean to help you find a home to fit your needs, he knows how to find just what you're looking for at a good price.
Sean helped us buy our first house, and was perfect for it. He didn't try to sell us the first one we saw; he was very honest about each house, and as he learned more about what we wanted, knew whether we'd like a house before we even saw it. If you're going to spend several afternoons with someone, Sean is great. Funny, not awkward at all, would be great to get a beer with between houses.

The other reviews here pretty much mirror my experience buying property in Austin and using Sean as my realtor. He took the time to meet with me and created searches for houses in areas that I wanted and then he went and did the same for areas that he thought I would like. He was pro active, knowledgeable, professional, and sometimes funny. He has opinions on Austin real estate and where people are going with it. Overall, it was a smooth deal and I got money from him afterwards.
