"He will work tirelessly to ensure you are 100%, and more, satisfied..."
There are not sufficient stars allowed by Yelp to truly capture how great Mark's services have been for us. The guy is the best Realtor in Austin, hands down!
Our relationship with Mark began when he helped us sell a condo that another realtor had listed for over 12 months. Mark listed it and sold it within 30 days. Amazing! Mark knows exactly how to stage and list houses. He has connections with Realtors with buyers always looking for investments. Mark's amazing work was the key to us selling a place that had become stagnate in what is Austin's seller's market.
That sale opened up the opportunity for us to move forward with a house purchase, a purchase Mark undertook and navigated for us. His skills in this difficult market was the key to ensuring we had the "jump" on other buyers. We moved quickly, he worked the other realtor, and we had a signed contract within days of seeing the property. Our house has been a magnificent purchase! It gave us a great place, in a great area, and at a great price. Forward two years later, we are actively investing in real estate around Austin. All thanks to Mark! Mark came to us with an investment idea three months ago and now we are under contract on another GREAT property!
Mark has moved way beyond just being our realtor, he truly is a friend and confidant. Whether you are having trouble selling your home, just want to list your place, looking to purchase your forever home, or looking for investment opportunities... Mark is your guy! He will work tirelessly to ensure you are 100%, and more, satisfied with his services.
"...appreciated his mix of casual, friendly professionalism..."
Mark and his team provided a very supportive and professional service in the purchase of our new home. He was always there with the answers to our many questions and along with the honesty and experience that he brought he was able to guide us through the difficult process of buying the home we had chosen. We really appreciated his mix of casual, friendly professionalism which made for easy communication and a very pleasant experience overall.
"...above and beyond to fulfill all of our needs..."
This year my wife and I had the pleasure of working with Eddie Hart to purchase our very first home. Eddie was and still is amazing! He was able to go above and beyond to fulfill all of our needs during the home buying process. Eddie was patient. He helped us develop a game plan together, and he gave wise counsel along the way (he still continues to do so months after the home purchase).
During the process, Eddie helped us narrow our thinking and really settle down on what we wanted in a new home. He was so good we only looked at 6 homes before we knew we found the one. He was available on weekends and same day to view homes. Eddie even worked on his vacation!!!!
My wife and I certainly recommend Eddie for any home purchase needs. We plan to continue working with Eddie on selling and buying any future home purchases. If you want a trusted partner, you want Eddie and Marc.
"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!
"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.
"Alex has the knowledge and experience we were lacking..."
My husband and I were first-time home buyers and wanted to do our research prior to picking a realtor, especially in a market like Austin. We decided to go with Strub Residential based on their stellar reviews, and they definitely lived up to them. We contacted Strub and received a response from Mark that same day. He was very informative and made sure he knew what our situation and needs were before assigning us an agent. We were paired with Alex Tapp and could not be more thankful! Alex has the knowledge and experience we were lacking and on top of that is so nice and professional. My husband and I were not the easiest clients. We have completely different tastes and couldn't even agree on an area of Austin for a while. Through all of it, Alex was nothing but patient and always there to offer his advice. We finally ended up agreeing on a home and putting an offer in ...this is where Alex's experience and knowledge becomes invaluable. There was a little hiccup on our lender's end that almost put us in jeopardy of losing the house. He worked tirelessly to ensure all parties had everything completed in time for closing and was able to keep me semi-calm through it all...lol. We now are getting settled into our first home and could not be happier. My husband and I would recommend Strub Residential (and Alex particularly) to anyone looking to buy or sell a home!
"Cory provided us a steady hand..."
We found Cory Laurel and Strub Residential agency through our friend, another RE agent.
We wanted to sell our property in the prime summer months but couldn't do it.
We finally listed in September and in four days had an offer. We wanted to sell quickly before the uncertainty of the elections. We crossed our "t's," and dotted our "i's," to clear the way to a hopeful closing.
Unfortunately, our buyers and their agent were unusually uncooperative and unresponsive; we didn't know where we stood. Our frustration grew with each buyer delay; we got ready to walk away. Cory provided us a steady hand with her patience and gave us alternatives to consider that even included re-listing in the spring as markets dry up during the holidays.
The property closed a week after the original closing date.
When you're in the trenches you find out found who you can rely on. Cory cared about us. She was thorough, responsive, and worked to circumvent obstacles.
In our books Cory Laurel is a class act. We would both recommend her to sell or buy your property.
"...helped us find the perfect home."
Mark helped us find the perfect home. He not only listened to what we wanted but convinced us to keep an open mind and look at a some neighborhoods we would have not considered. Sure enough, we ended up in the neighborhood we would have never looked at on our own, absolutely love everything about the house/neighborhood and are more central than we thought was possible. Thanks Mark!!!
