Alex was always ready to show me new places that he thought would fit my new home criteria. I'm an incredibly detailed oriented person who wanted a very specific type of place and finding a place that was the right fit for me and my budget was no small task! Alex took it all in stride and helped guide me the entire way.
It took 6 months for me to find the right place and Alex was very patient and understanding throughout the process. Alex never pressured me into any sales, showed me safe and new areas I should be looking as well as areas I should avoid based on my needs. Each time we saw a place I took notes on what worked and what didn't work and Alex was very accommodating to my future home desires!
Alex was very timely in responding as properties came on the market because he knows how fast good properties get purchased! Thankfully, when the right one came along, and I knew exactly what worked for me, he helped me figure out the right offer and I ended up getting a wonderful place. He even helped me with finding other reliable contacts for along the way.
I ended up in the PERFECT property and am one extremely happy customer.
Stop browsing Yelp and call these guys!! I'd bet you will be just as satisfied as I am :)
"... provides nothing but outstanding services! "
Stewart Lane provides nothing but outstanding services! I recently put my home up for sale and was more concerned about selling the house in a quick time frame. When I found Stewart online via Yelp, we met the next day and he went over every aspect that comes with selling a home. He explained everything to me in a manner that was very easy to understand, which was very helpful since this was my first time selling a home. We got the home ready to show and it was put on the market sooner than I expected. Stewart was able to market very well and found more than one buyer within a couple of days. The buyers went head to head and we had a price war very soon. Long story short, we were able to sell the house in about a month and a half, which was a lot sooner than I planned, AND it was sold way above the value we were asking for it. I was and still am very excited and grateful that we were able to find and work with Stewart. I would highly recommend using him whenever the time comes that you need a realtor, it will be a decision that you will not regret.

"Strub Residential is fantastic. When I moved to Austin last year I was dreading going through the process of purchasing a home. However, Strub Residential took care of everything for me. They found me a house in a great neighborhood and in my price range. They took care of ALL of the communication and paperwork which allowed me to focus on my move.
I recommend Strub Residential to anyone who is looking to buy a home! Thank you!!"

“Mark was a joy to work with. Our list of criteria for a home purchase was quite extensive. Mark was incredibly patient throughout the entire process, listening to our needs and helping us explore alternatives to meet our interests. In the end, he helped us find the perfect house in a fantastic location, all at a price below market value! We will definitely be using Mark for any future real estate transactions."
"...thoroughly familiar with every area of the city..."
As a long-time resident of Kansas, I am considering the purchase of a home in Austin. During a recent trip there, I had the good fortune to meet with a very dynamic and knowledgeable Realtor, Cory Laurel. I would urge anyone interested in purchasing real estate in Austin to consider contacting Cory. She is thoroughly familiar with every area of the city and was therefore able to take me to available properties that matched exactly what I told her. She even suggested the best times of day to travel to different locations based on how heavy the traffic was, thus using my time and her own to best advantage.
Particularly important to me was the fact that Cory stayed focused on the business at hand--finding what I wanted, setting up showings quickly, and either answering my questions immediately or doing the requisite research in order to produce factual answers within hours. And, that she has a personality that indicates her love of the work she is doing. This is first rate, first class service that gets the job done. Not incidentally, she is able to accomplish all of this in a way that leaves you convinced that she is as interested in finding what you want as you are yourself! This is not an experience you'll get with too many other professionals you encounter in the world today. I look forward to working with Cory many more times in the future!
"Cory was up for the challenge..."
This review is for our realtor - Cory Laurel within the StrÜb Residential team.
Working with Strüb has been a great experience. All I did was enter the word "realtor" on the Yelp keyword search in Austin and the Strüb company name popped up. I typically go with the most positively reviewed team so I sent an email to Strüb and another Yelp recommended team on March 14.
Strüb responded immediately on March 15 recommending 2 of their great agents that might fit our personality / needs. We were buyers relocating from San Francisco, CA to Austin, TX. Out of the two profiles, we chose Cory Laurel.
Right from the get go, a curveball was already thrown into the mix; I only had a few hours each day between March 20-24 to view homes while I visited Austin for work. Cory was up for the challenge and very positive. We viewed 15-20 homes during my limited time period in Austin, that's a lot of homes to look at in a short timeline. The other little wrench thrown in the pile was that we needed to find a place before we moved on May 23rd. Cory got right on it and recommend the lender for us to work with. She led the entire process and managed our expectations.
The third wrench was that we had a vacation planned for 2 weeks out of the country immediately after my visit to Austin. This meant that all correspondence and negotiations needed to happen immediately. Cory managed it all with such grace that we didn't have too many back and forth exchanges with the seller. It was a very pleasant buying experience for us. The negotiations, inspections, and closing were handled remotely. Our concerns / questions were answered almost immediately during the process. Our lender representative was even present on a Google Hangout during our closing in California. Overall, this was an A+.
Since we were located remotely, she even offered her time to get the locks changed on our new home prior to our move-in date.
We would do this again in the future with Cory.
"...he never hesitated to meet our expectations and beyond."
"We really put our realtor, Alex Tapp, to the test, and he never hesitated to meet our expectations and beyond. Alex was professional, yet approachable, guiding us through the entire process and even still after we owned the property. He went above and beyond, even though we changed our search criteria several times.
My favorite things about this real estate company were their involvement in our entire purchasing process, their ability to respond quickly to even the smallest of questions/concerns, and how personable yet professional they were. We will not hesitate with whom to choose when it's time for our next property purchase!" - Nicky + Ryan B.
"It was so easy..."
We just sold our home using Strub Residential. It was such an easy process thanks specifically to Stewart Lane. We live out of town, and did not have to visit our property once during the selling process. We even had a rental lease out on the property at the time of sale. Stewart kept us in the loop every step of the way. He negotiated with the Rental property company, our tenant, the buyers and their realtor like such a professional. He sent us photos of all of the work that was being done to get the home ready for selling. It was so easy, everything was able to be completed by email up until closing day! I would recommend Strub Residential to anyone looking to buy or sell a home. If we ever find our way back to the Austin area I will be contacting them for our residential needs! Thank you so much Stewart, and the Strub team!
