Helping and counseling people in all walks of life has always been my passion! My grandma is a REALTOR, so I guess you could say it’s in my blood. I have memories of watching her work with clients and listening to her address a vast array of situations, which I continue to draw from to this day.
Having been born and raised in Austin, I have an intimate knowledge of the hundreds of different neighborhoods and areas that comprise this city. I have a background in Technology Sales, Account Management and Marketing which allows me to bring a wide array of skills to the Real Estate Industry.
I love getting to know my clients and working collaboratively with them to figure out exactly what is important to them in their new home! I understand how nerve-wracking it can be to uproot and move to a new home, whether it’s just down the street or across the country. My job is to bear the load of that stress and anxiety so that you can sit back, relax and enjoy the process! When working with Sellers, constructing a marketing plan tailored to their specific home is something I take a lot of pride and pleasure in doing.
My husband, Dave, and I have a blended family of FIVE precious children. My family and I enjoy biking around Crestview to our favorite spot, Little Deli, traveling and absorbing new cultures, gardening in our backyard, and of course, seeing live music! We also have a dog, Sofie, who we absolutely adore!
“Abbey was super sweet…”
I want to give a shout out to Abbey Ward for helping us at the beginning of our search. Abbey was super sweet and showed us a few homes while we were in town. We will be recommending STRUB to our friends and family or anyone looking for a home in the Austin area.
“I don’t know if we could have pulled off this move without Abbey. We didn’t feel like a number, a transaction, a commission check, or just another client with her; she truly cared about us…”
Abbey W. with Strüb Residential is, hands down, the most spectacular Real Estate Agent we have ever had the pleasure of working with, and I used to work at a real estate office with hundreds of agents. We decided in November 2020 to relocate to Austin, TX from Southern California. Anyone who’s been paying attention to Real Estate in Austin right now knows the market is absolutely insane right now, with some homes receiving 30-40 offers without any showings, but we decided to dive in head-first into house hunting on “hard mode”. I don’t know if we could have pulled off this move without Abbey. We didn’t feel like a number, a transaction, a commission check, or just another client with her; she truly cared about us to make sure we got the exact home and neighborhood we wanted without compromise. She told us on a few occasions not to bid on certain homes that we thought we would like, because she knew they would be a nightmare later and just weren’t the right spaces for us. That is the sign of a true professional in this field to really protect your clients rather than just ‘close a deal’. It took a lot of offers (I believe we hold the current record at Strüb Residential for offers submitted) but it was absolutely worth it! Abbey knew the right strategies and tactics to make our offers stand out. With homes being snatched up to all cash offers, we were still holding strong as runner-up on multiple fantastic properties, until the perfect one came along. Abbey has kept my sanity throughout this cross-country relocation and has gone above and beyond her role, taking late night conversations and adjusting strategies over and over. She’s got the dream team behind her as well with Finance, Escrow and Title all working together as a 5-star, first-in-class team. We found Abbey by searching Yelp for “Best Real Estate Agents in Austin” and she lives up to the title. I don’t want to ever buy a house again, only because we landed the PERFECT home, but if I do, it’ll be a requirement to work with Abbey again!

“…attention to detail, great communication skills, and ready smile made the experience even better than I expected.”
Words can’t express how impressive Realtor Abbey Ward has been. I am a new homeowner that was recommended to Strüb Residential, more specifically to Abbey Ward. Since the beginning, she has guided me through the right path until closing date. Abbey’s experience in real state is very impressive as she breaks down every detail to make it easier for the new homebuyer. Abbey, I want you to know how much I appreciate the excellent service you provided on helping me buy my first home. Your attention to detail, great communication skills, and ready smile made the experience even better than I expected. I am 100% sure we will be working together in the near future.

“She was so fast, kind, and responsive to all my many, MANY questions, gave excellent recommendations for a lender, home inspector, utilities service, and contractors that I’ve been very happy with…”
Abbey Ward is PHENOMENAL! As a first-time homebuyer in the middle of a global pandemic and competing in the crazy, fast-paced, and overwhelming Austin real estate market, I am so incredibly grateful Abbey was there to expertly guide me through every step of the process. She was so fast, kind, and responsive to all my many, MANY questions, gave excellent recommendations for a lender, home inspector, utilities service, and contractors that I’ve been very happy with, helped me navigate all the paperwork and made sure everything happened on time to meet quick deadlines, and I’m so appreciative she was encouraging and positive exactly when I needed it most. Not only was she amazingly proactive in finding exactly what I was looking for before it was even on the market, she actually managed to get me a tour of the home the evening before it was listed and then collaborated with Mark Strüb and Eric Pugatch to make sure my offer was exactly what it needed to be in order to be competitive and WIN me the bid on my dream home in my dream location! I wouldn’t be where I am now without Abbey and Strüb Residential, I just can’t thank and recommend them highly enough! Genuinely amazing work, people, and customer service, I can’t imagine how this experience could have possibly gone any better, I’m just blown away!

Strüb Residential is a wonderful group to work with. They are incredibly friendly, eager to help in any way that they can, and knowledgeable about the Austin market. Abbey Ward provided me with the guidance and information that quickly led me to my dream home in one of the most challenging areas to find a place in Austin. I can’t wait to work with them again in the future, and I strongly recommend them for all realty needs!
