This review is beyond overdue! Cory Laurel is THE BEST. Hands down! Cory is sharp, honest, detailed oriented, and quick. Literally, everything you'd want in a realtor and probably more. Cory spent the entire day helping us find a property (we were out of town and had a few days). Her level of service mimics that of a concierge agency. Not kidding. Good realtors are hard to find. There's no doubt that Cory would have found us the perfect property. Unfortunately, we decided that Austin, TX simply wasn't for us quite yet.
Save yourself a headache, call and snag Cory! - Tonia O.
"...responsive and attentive throughout the process."
I'm a thorough researcher before committing to something. I interviewed a few agencies and settled down on Strub Residential. They're a full service agency that uses a professional photographer and stager as part of the package. It means exposure to many sites of not just photos but a virtual tour as well. The stager was great, providing a lot of suggestions to allows us to stand out in the market and compete with new model homes as well.
Unfortunately we did not get to use these extra perks as Alex Tapp, the agent they teamed us up with, sold our house before we could even list it :-)
Apparently all he needs is a "Coming soon" sign to work with. He's been responsive and attentive throughout the process.
We are using them to help with the house we're building now.
"...made something that can be difficult, very easy."
My family just moved to Austin TX. from Los Angeles Ca. Ashley was so helpful. We are very happy to be here, and Ashley made something that can be difficult, very easy.
"...he always gave us sound advice."
Alex Tapp is the best. We've lived in Austin less than six months and bought two homes with his help -- an investment property and our dream home. The Austin housing market is crazy and he always gave us sound advice. He won't steer you wrong. Plus he's a pleasure to work with.
"He went above and beyond..."
Had a wonderful experience with Alex. He went above and beyond to make sure we got the house we wanted. He stayed on top of things the entire time and made the home buying experience wonderful. Definitely would recommend! - Sunflower D.
"We're so happy with the home and deal he got us..."
"We worked with Alex Tapp at Strüb Residential to find our new home. We could not be more pleased with his work. He's way more than a pretty face and great accent. He's thoroughly knowledgeable, *always* available (seriously, we were a little worried for him - he can't be getting much sleep), and stayed on top of every single tiny little detail to make sure things went as smoothly as possible for us. We're so happy with the home and deal he got us that we're not really expecting to use him again, but if it comes up, Alex & Strüb Residential are our #1 choice."
"Mark made sure that all deadlines were met, and tirelessly stayed on top of the process..."
Mark is a very competent real estate broker and relocation specialist.
I am a recent transplant from California. After much individual searching for homes online, my husband and I met Mark at his office in Austin. We spent a good deal of time talking about what we were looking for both in property characteristics and neighborhood amenities, Mark read us like a book and gave a list of neighborhoods that fit our narrative. As a native to the area, Mark is very familiar to the Austin area that we were interested in. He showed us around, and pointed us to areas that would be good fits for our needs and wants. We quickly (our first day looking) found a home that fit the bill. He researched comps, and we made an offer which was eventually accepted.
From the beginning and throughout the closing process, Mark was always on top of it, and he was quickly available when I had questions. He patiently and knowledgeably walked us through any questions we had, no matter how big or small. During the closing period he was even helpful with recommendations of vendors for upgrades and maintenance.
Mark made sure that all deadlines were met, and tirelessly stayed on top of the process, even while we were traveling back and forth from California.
I appreciated his market knowledge, intuitive read of our wants, and dedication to get the job done from start to finish.
I would highly recommend Mark Strüb to anyone looking for a new home in the Austin area and beyond!
Thanks again!!! - Jessica D.
"Mark works with all of our friends and family."
Mark is great! We were first time homebuyers, but he made the process fun. The Austin market was crazy, but Mark partnered with us to find the right area. He was patient, never pressured us, and in the end, Mark's network and knowledge of Austin landed us in our perfect home.
We're almost a year in and we still keep in touch. Mark's customer service doesn't end after closing. He's our go-to for any and all recommendations.
Mark works with all of our friends and family. He sold my mom's house in one day!
In short, Mark is the best.
