Born the eldest of six kids, nephew to twenty-eight aunts and uncles, and one of over 50 cousins, I learned early on the value of compassion, cooperation, and a good sense of humor. My inclination to entertain my siblings and cousins led to a pursuit of the theatre arts. After graduating from Northwestern University’s Theatre Program, I had the great fortune to work at some of Chicago’s best theatres and restaurants, and to perform in the Broadway and Las Vegas companies of Mamma Mia. This brought me to my “light bulb” moment: the skills I had developed through my work in the theatre and culinary arts- collaboration, communication, and customer service- were perfectly suited for a career in Real Estate.

I couldn’t be more thrilled to be part of Strüb Residential. I am no stranger to hard work and it is my goal to get everything done behind the scenes so that my clients have a seamless, efficient, and enjoyable home buying, selling, or leasing process. Meeting new people and helping them achieve their goals from start to finish is in my blood and one of my favorite things to do.

I couldn’t be more proud to call this city my home and I jump at any opportunity to share it. I love exploring Austin’s food scene, cooking for friends at home, taking trips to Texas wine country, hiking the green belt, painting in my spare time, and above all, being with my husband, Mike, and our dog, Stevie.

“These guys are the cure to the covid19 summertime blues.”

These guys are the cure to the covid19 summertime blues. I have gone through many homes, and now it isn’t fair for other real estate companies to share the same city of Austin. The generously high expectations I now have moving forward will unfortunately never be met unless these wonder groups of humans are involved, if any specific name should be asked for, please reach out to Patrick Sarb, dudes legit, and he has seen every avenger movie, so don’t waste your precious time or money on Neanderthals who will just goof up and leave you in limbo while also thinking Justice League was good, those people are lost and can not help you.

“We never felt pressured into anything that wasn’t exactly what we were looking for.”

We can’t say enough good things about Patrick Sarb! He helped us find our rental when we moved her over a year ago, and then recently took us smoothly through the process of buying our first home. He is professional but also down-to-earth. We never felt pressured into anything that wasn’t exactly what we were looking for. The market in Austin can be daunting, but Patrick always stayed positive and kept us encouraged. When we finally found the right house, he made the process simple and straight forward. He is a dream to work with and we can’t recommend him enough!

– Lindsey P.

“The communication, insight, and expertise with this team is top notch. So happy we chose Strüb to sell our home…”

It wasn’t an easy decision to sell our home during quarantine this year, but we are so happy that we did! Not only were Patrick and Mark able to act fast to get it done, they were always available, reassuring, and so helpful every step of the way. They gave great advice on what we needed to do to get our home ready to sell, priced our home competitively, got multiple offers, and sold our home in 2 days over asking price! The communication, insight, and expertise with this team is top notch. So happy we chose Strüb to sell our home and will definitely use them again!

– Michael M.

“I wouldn’t have found anything so perfect on my own.”

Amidst all this uncertainty and chaos of corona virus, I was also burdened with finding a new place to live. After countless video tours, fruitless in-person tours for properties I’d found online and a handful of application fees down the drain, I was shown a property by Patrick Sarb. After I was turned down yet again for a duplex, Patrick went out of his way to hunt down a list of places with exactly what I was looking for. We went and looked at my favorite unit from his list and it was amazing. Turns out he wasn’t even the listing agent for the property! He showed it because he knew I’d love it and had a shot at being approved for it. Patrick handled everything: all the communication with the agent over the property and coordinating payments for applications and deposits. He then refunded me my original deposit from the previous property I’d been denied for. Patrick is a genuinely amazing human! I wouldn’t have found anything so perfect on my own (not to mention the stress of searching and throwing money in the trash on application fees!!!!) Thank you, Patrick! Bert Dak and I LOVE our new place!!!!!

“…made sure we were well advised.”

We purchased our home February 2020 after a month of active search with the help of a wonderful person, Patrick SARB. I don’t know what we would have done without his support, patience, positive attitude and persistence when necessary. He helped us through the many stages of buying a home for the first time and made sure we were well advised. He also has an infectious smile and wonderful personality. We will highly recommend Strüb Residential to any home buyer and if you have the opportunity to work with Patrick, cherish it.

– Banu A.

“…you can trust that he’s going to do the right thing for you and connect you with reputable resources.”

Patrick Sarb is an incredible realtor and not just because he helped us find a wonderful house that checked all our boxes (and then some!) and was way under budget. We would have been completely lost during the process without someone we could trust guiding us through it. That’s why we recommend Patrick to anyone: you can trust that he’s going to do the right thing for you and connect you with reputable resources.

– John R.

“Patrick put together a plan for some minimal “make ready” work that made a drastic difference and got our house sold for asking price the very first weekend.”

We had the pleasure of working with Strüb Residential for the second time this past fall and my love for this crew has only grown. This time we worked with Patrick Sarb who provided another A++ experience. Patrick put together a plan for some minimal “make ready” work that made a drastic difference and got our house sold for asking price the very first weekend. Once again, Patrick and Kristina took the reins and handled every little detail to keep it as hands off as possible for us, a true concierge experience. Such an incredible group of professionals that take customer service to the next level! Thank you so much, Patrick!!

– Jessica A.

“When we were unsure or feeling a little stressed about something, he made sure to jump in and find out how to help and provided us with the information we needed to know to feel at ease.”

Patrick was such a joy to work with! My husband and I were looking for a house as first-time homeowners and we didn’t know what to expect, once we started working with Patrick everything went so smoothly and we felt very comfortable through the entire process. Patrick made sure all of our questions were answered and communicated with us both through every update. When we were unsure or feeling a little stressed about something, he made sure to jump in and find out how to help and provided us with the information we needed to know to feel at ease. We found the most beautiful home with Patrick’s help and we couldn’t be more thankful!

– Karla B.

“No exaggeration–Patrick Sarb may be our favorite person in Austin. He is knowledgeable and empathetic, and he advocated for us during every step of the home-buying process.”

My husband and I found our way to Strüb Residential after meeting Mark at an open house, where we were impressed with his honesty and forthright style of communication. Mark invited us to the office, listened as we shared our preferences, and learned about us as people. He insightfully identified that we would work well with Patrick Sarb. No exaggeration–Patrick Sarb may be our favorite person in Austin. He is knowledgeable and empathetic, and he advocated for us during every step of the home-buying process. He ensured we found a house that met our criteria, though the search lasted two months. Patrick was more than patient; he understood what we wanted and actively helped us find it. After going under contract, we encountered significant, unexpected builder delays. Patrick proactively communicated with the listing agent and checked in with us frequently. When the builder was unresponsive or resistant to our feedback, Patrick defended our interests and persisted until the situation was resolved to our satisfaction. Ultimately, the house was completed, the purchase was finalized, and we are thrilled to be living in our new home. We worked with Patrick for nearly five months and in that time, we got to know him well. Patrick is an excellent realtor and a stellar human being. We are grateful to have discovered Strüb Residential and to have been paired with Patrick Sarb. Patrick will be our first call for any realty needs, and we wholeheartedly recommend him to anyone buying or selling a home in Austin.

– Kristi S.

“Patrick was tremendous throughout the entire process. He advocated for us and made sure we didn’t settle for an “almost right” place when he knew the perfect place was out there.”

Finding the perfect house in Austin can be daunting. We had been looking off and on using another realty firm when we met Mark Strüb at an open house. We were so impressed with his professionalism and forthrightness that he seemed like a perfect fit. After meeting with Mark and his team, he identified Patrick Sarb as the ideal realtor at his firm with which we should work. Was he right! Patrick was tremendous throughout the entire process. He advocated for us and made sure we didn’t settle for an “almost right” place when he knew the perfect place was out there. He was generous with his time and never pushed us to commit to something that didn’t feel right despite how aggressive the Austin housing market can be. Ultimately, Patrick’s dedication led to us finding our perfect home. While we were under contract, Patrick continued to stay in constant touch and worked tirelessly with the selling agent and builder to ensure they delivered us the home we wanted. Patrick was an absolutely joy to work with and became a friend through the process. Hopefully it will be many years before we are in the market to sell our new home, but when the time comes, we will entrust Strüb Residential and Patrick Sarb to represent our interests.

– Matthew D.

“You’re not going to find more helpful and resourceful REALTORS.”

Patrick Sarb is literally my hero. I needed to sell my house quickly, and he was so helpful during the entire process. During the initial walkthrough, he helped identify and prioritize issues to fix. Then he was available (even on weekends!) to answer all of my questions during the process of finding a buyer and closing the sale. I definitely recommend Strüb Residential. You’re not going to find more helpful and resourceful REALTORS.

– Benjamin H.

“He was the most patient, knowledgeable, honest, accessible, and genuine person we’ve ever dealt with.”

If you need a realtor this is your last stop! We worked with Patrick Sarb (HIGHLY recommend him) on both selling our home and buying a new one. He was the most patient, knowledgeable, honest, accessible, and genuine person we’ve ever dealt with. Any question we had he was a phone call or text away (he responds very fast). He gave us advice on what would be the smart thing to do; not just the “I want to make a sale here” advice some realtors give. He understood our wants and needs and hit the mark every single time. Selling/Buying can be very stressful with a busy schedule and he made the process a delight. We’re excited to be in our new home, and we can’t thank Patrick enough!

– Cameron J.

“Patrick Sarb was amazing to work with!”

Patrick Sarb was amazing to work with! We didn’t know Austin well and were a little nervous about buying a house right away. We found a great house in a great neighborhood.

– Benjamin A.

“He would even entertain our 2-month-old while my husband and I walked around and discussing the house.”

Patrick helped us find our first home and it’s safe to say he is part of the family now. I seriously cannot write enough positive things to say about Patrick Sarb, he was my rock through this whole process. My husband and I really didn’t know too much of the process since this was our first home, but it didn’t matter since we had Patrick guiding us the entire way. He would even entertain our 2-month-old while my husband and I walked around and discussing the house. He was always prompt to answer our phone calls or text us back right away, he was patient when we would ask to go back out to the same house 3 – 4 times with different family members and he was detailed orientated when we went through our walk through and caught items that the seller still hadn’t fixed. I 100% recommend Strüb if you are looking to buy or sell a home, and I even more so recommend working with Patrick!

– Tiffney S.

“The biggest thing that I think Patrick helped me on is saving me from myself. I thought I was going to have to move out to the boonies for what I wanted, and Patrick did an excellent job of keeping an eye out for what I wanted, but closer in. Not only that, we found something cheaper than what I was expecting to pay.”

As a first-time homebuyer, having a good ally and advocate in a realtor was critical to succeed. I had been looking casually on my own for a year, and finally decided to connect with Mark and Patrick. We had a good connection and he had a good knowledge of the market and things to look for. He was not a pressuring person, and had a good eye for the things you want checked in buying a home (AC unit, drainage, roof, etc.) After a year of searching on my own, it was about 2 months from first meeting to handing over keys to my perfect home. They were responsive, responsible, and prepared for all steps in the process. Also received a good referral from realtor for some contractors on housework. Contractors did solid work, but you will need to negotiate your own prices with them. The biggest thing that I think Patrick helped me on is saving me from myself. I thought I was going to have to move out to the boonies for what I wanted, and Patrick did an excellent job of keeping an eye out for what I wanted, but closer in. Not only that, we found something cheaper than what I was expecting to pay. Without his excellent guidance and eye for the market I wouldn’t be as happy as I am. My only concern about the process was that I might have overpaid on the home in question, and could have had better guidance on a lower counter offer. It was a multiple offer situation within 24 hours which is a very hard thing to judge, and ultimately, I got the home I wanted so that’s the ultimate win. As a counterpoint, when the inspection came back, he was able to knock off thousands from the offer, so it worked out well. No problem recommending them and will likely use their services when it’s time to upgrade in a decade or so.

– Jeff C.

“He gave me helpful suggestions on vendors that ended up helping me save quite a bit.”

I am a first-time home buyer and I could not be more pleased with Strüb Residential, especially Patrick Sarb, our REALTOR. From the first call, they were receptive, helpful and communicated in a timely fashion. I was worried and would ask questions in which Patrick was always transparent and made me feel comfortable with my decisions. He gave me helpful suggestions on vendors that ended up helping me save quite a bit. The closing process was very smooth, dare I say too smooth? I am so happy with my house and all the help Patrick and the team has provided. 100% recommend and I hope to use Strüb on future reality needs.

– Elysia C.

“Very professional and get things done fast.”

Patrick and the whole team are awesome! Very professional and get things done fast. We have purchased and rented houses with Alex and Patrick and I would definitely recommend them.

– Patricia A.

“I have heard horror stories about the home buying process and Patrick put my fears to rest within the first two interactions.”

We contacted Strüb and advised we were looking for a place in South Austin, and they hooked us up with Patrick, who they advised was familiar with the area. He was amazing. This was my first time buying a house and my girlfriend’s second time, and both of us agreed that this was a fantastic experience. Patrick was knowledgeable, on point with his recommendations, timely in his communications, and since he knew it was my first time buying a house, he took the time to explain several things to me when I didn’t understand – he is very patient. I have heard horror stories about the home buying process and Patrick put my fears to rest within the first two interactions. I really can’t recommend this place enough. If you are looking to buy or sell a house in Austin – do yourself a favor and call Strüb. They were excellent

– Jesse M.

“Early on, Patrick also welcomed a few of our family and friends into the search. We are so thankful for Patrick, our new Austin home, and the entire experience.”

Patrick Sarb of Strüb Residential is truly remarkable! We cannot rave enough about Patrick and our recent home search and buying experience with him. He is knowledgable, responsive, collaborative, supportive, and FUN! {and he was uber-patient with me and all my questions ~ no small feat} Early on, Patrick also welcomed a few of our family and friends into the search. We are so thankful for Patrick, our new Austin home, and the entire experience. We will continue to rave about him to everyone, and if we do happen to embark on another Austin-area move, we’ll definitely be doing so with Patrick!

– Robyn S.

“He calmed me down when I got nervous and celebrated with me when I was excited.”

As a first-time home buyer, I was thrilled to have chosen Patrick Sarb with Strüb Residential as a partner to go through this process with me. He was there every step of the way and provided me guidance in ways I did not even know I would need. He showed up to every appointment, all walk-throughs, the closing, and even helped me move at the end. Throughout all of our time together, I never felt rushed or pressured. He worked around my crazy work schedule and even attended appointments for me when I could not be there, as well as keeping things extremely organized along the way. He answered all my questions, emails, and phone calls in the most prompt manner. He calmed me down when I got nervous and celebrated with me when I was excited. He also gave me excellent recommendations for individuals in other businesses along the way as well. His professionalism was superb and positive energy was just what I needed. I recommend him whole-heartedly! You will not be disappointed with Patrick Sarb as your realtor! Many thanks to Patrick and Strüb Residential for their excellent customer service! Job well done!

– Kori C.

“Any time our kiddos came with us to look at homes, you could find Patrick entertaining them so we could take the time to look around the home without the distraction.”

My wife and I highly recommend Strüb Residential. We have used them two times now to close on homes in Austin and have had great experiences each time. We recently used Patrick when moving from East Austin to North Austin and couldn’t have been more pleased. After months of searching and lots of changes on our end, he stuck with us and helped us find the home that we were looking for. He was also quick to respond, knowledgeable and very friendly. Any time our kiddos came with us to look at homes, you could find Patrick entertaining them so we could take the time to look around the home without the distraction. My older son especially loved seeing him and asks about him now. Don’t hesitate to reach out to Strüb for your real estate needs and ask for Patrick!

– Joe P.

“The work he put in before even meeting with us was impressive.”

Strüb residential treats everyone as if they are their only customer. Our agent Patrick Sarb came to our first meeting with a preliminary write up on our home and the homes in our area along with information about all the services Strüb offers their customers. The work he put in before even meeting with us was impressive. We found out that included with signing with Strüb, is a meeting with a stager who will help advise you on how best to showcase your home and when you are finally ready an amazing photographer will provide the photos. Patrick walked us through several comps in the area and showed us what other houses around us look like when they go up for sale. Patrick helped us create a to do list based on what we hoped to accomplish, he helped us shop for a few pieces for staging, and he met with us regularly to talk us through where we were and how best to get where we were going. When we put our house on the market, we had three offers over asking price by the end of the first weekend and that was undoubtedly all due to Patrick’s advice, encouragement, and support. We could not have sold our home without him and we definitely made more money than we would have with a less invested agent. Stub creates a professional portfolio for your home that cannot be beat. I highly recommend this company and Patrick Sarb as an agent.

– Mary M.

“There was no pressure placed on us. It was all about finding the right home that fit our budget…”

The team at Strüb Residential were supportive and professional from day one. As a first time homebuyer, I and my fiancé had no clue what we were doing, what we wanted or how extensive of a process buying a home would be. Our realtor, Patrick Sarb, was so friendly and made us feel like all our needs were met. Even needs we didn’t even know! There was no pressure placed on us. It was all about finding the right home that fit our budget and had all the things we were looking for. Everyone who we told that we were buying a house kept telling us “Ugh that process is a roller coaster with highs and lows”. But, with Patrick and everyone at Strüb behind us, the process went incredibly smooth. I kept waiting for something to go wrong, but it never came. And when closing day came, I couldn’t believe it because not one thing went wrong or made us second guess our decision. We are incredibly thankful to Patrick and everyone at Strüb for making our home buying dreams come true. I know how sappy that sounds, but it’s the truth!

– Tyler M.

“…he answered every email I sent…”

Patrick was great and so helpful in my search for finding a place in Austin. Without Patrick, I wouldn’t have been able to find such a great place that I love in such a small time window. And he answered every email I sent him which must have been 2-3 a day. Really cannot say enough great things about my experience with Patrick. I even recommended him to my brother to help him with his house search.

– Mary L.

“He handles all obstacles with genuine care and professionalism.”

Patrick was exactly what we hoped for during our search. When looking for a new home, things can easily become stressful and overwhelming. Patrick is friendly, informative and always made us feel comfortable and relaxed throughout the process. He handles all obstacles with genuine care and professionalism. Patrick answered all of our questions and even helped present us with some we had overlooked. Not once did we feel rushed or ignored. He was thorough and flexible to accommodate our needs and schedules. In the end, Patrick left us feeling like family. We couldn’t be happier with our new place and our decision to go with STRÜB! Hope you can make it to the housewarming party, Patrick! We miss you already!

– Kathryn R.

“He said on way more than one occasion “I got you” and he MEANT IT.”

I 100% recommend Strüb Residential and Patrick Sarb! From the moment I first visited their website I was given excellent services. I first spoke with Kristina who asked what we were in need of and actually paid attention. I know this seems simple enough, but her ability to know to pair us with Patrick as our realtor, tells me that she was dedicated to providing personal service from the beginning. Once I was introduced to Patrick, it was very clear I didn’t need to look any further. He was the perfect combination of professional and friendly and did an incredible job of paying attention to detail at all times. Not only did he provide us with a strong wealth of information we needed, he was considerate of how we were feeling, flexible, always available and even talked me off the ledge several times when the prospect of selling our home and moving to another state became almost too much to handle. He said on way more than one occasion “I got you” and he MEANT IT. He is genuine and confident and ultimately got us a great deal on a great home. I believe that he told me on more than one occasion that Strüb Residential prides itself on providing first class service, and this was not an overstatement. I am not sure that we would have made it through this process with our heads intact if it wasn’t for Patrick. If you are wondering how this company can have so many awesome reviews, I am here to tell you, it is because they are dedicated, professional, and there every step of the way. Pick them, you will not be disappointed!

– Jenn H.

“…working with Patrick made it painless…”

My Husband and I worked with Patrick to purchase our first home and really can’t say enough good things about him. Patrick is extremely knowledgeable, approachable, personable, endlessly patient, and incredibly generous with his time (including mornings, evenings, and weekends over the course of several months). Patrick answered every question and explained every form and every part of the process clearly and thoroughly. Buying a home in this market is challenging, but working with Patrick made it as painless and straightforward as possible. We highly recommend Patrick and the team at Strüb Residential.

– Patrick J.

“It was very easy.”

We recently used Patrick Sarb as a leasing agent for a rental property. We couldn’t be more pleased as Patrick found a well qualified tenant within 2 weeks, and then handled all the leasing details. It was very easy. Thanks so much Patrick and Strub Residential!

– Jeff R.

“…one of the friendliest, funniest people I’ve met…”

Patrick is not only my new go to real estate agent, he is my new go to best friend (which he will know once he reads this post.) But honestly, working with him was a joy. Patrick Sarb is one of the friendliest, funniest people I’ve met and extremely knowledgable about the Austin market. You would be a fool to work with anyone in Austin besides him!

– Kameron H.

“We always felt like a priority…”

We worked with Patrick who was such an amazing, efficient, and dedicated realtor. He helped us get our dream home quickly, and for the price we wanted. Patrick took care of looking into a huge variety of paperwork, questions, last minute needs from our lender, and was always kind spirited and motivated to get us our best deal. House hunting/buying can be so very stressful, but Patrick was so understanding and patient with us as that it was a very painless experience! We always felt like a priority. Already recommended him to a few people because we trust and like him. Great company as well who always helped each other, and were knowledgeable and got us to the closing table. Thank you all!

– Cait B.

“He went out of his way to help…”

Patrick Sarb is the best! He went out of his way to help us after the fact with the landlord. He has always been there for any questions or comments.

– Don W.

“…he made the entire transition a lot smoother…”

Patrick was a huge help. He answered my questions same day as I’d email them and was very personable over the phone. I had never even been to Austin before moving there and he made the entire transition a lot smoother. He even went so far as to go to the properties for me and take pictures himself so I could get a better view of what it looked like. All without my even asking to do so although it turned out to be highly helpful.

– Joe S.

“…he worked tirelessly…”

Patrick my Strub agent was engaging and more important knowledgeable and responsive to all of my wants and questions.  I was moving from out of state so depended on Patrick to identify the homes that met my criteria and he worked tirelessly in getting me the information I needed to get the home I wanted.

– Thomas R.

“You can’t go wrong with Patrick…”

Patrick Sarb is an excellent agent. You can’t go wrong with Patrick… give him a call!

– Jil B.

If you are looking to buy or sell a house in Austin – do yourself a favor and call Strüb. They were excellent  – Jesse M.

“Early on, Patrick also welcomed a few of our family and friends into the search. We are so thankful for Patrick, our new Austin home, and the entire experience.”

Patrick Sarb of Strüb Residential is truly remarkable! We cannot rave enough about Patrick and our recent home search and buying experience with him. He is knowledgable, responsive, collaborative, supportive, and FUN! {and he was uber-patient with me and all my questions ~ no small feat} Early on, Patrick also welcomed a few of our family and friends into the search. We are so thankful for Patrick, our new Austin home, and the entire experience. We will continue to rave about him to everyone, and if we do happen to embark on another Austin-area move, we’ll definitely be doing so with Patrick!  – Robyn S.

“He calmed me down when I got nervous and celebrated with me when I was excited.”

As a first-time home buyer, I was thrilled to have chosen Patrick Sarb with Strüb Residential as a partner to go through this process with me. He was there every step of the way and provided me guidance in ways I did not even know I would need. He showed up to every appointment, all walk-throughs, the closing, and even helped me move at the end. Throughout all of our time together, I never felt rushed or pressured. He worked around my crazy work schedule and even attended appointments for me when I could not be there, as well as keeping things extremely organized along the way. He answered all my questions, emails, and phone calls in the most prompt manner. He calmed me down when I got nervous and celebrated with me when I was excited. He also gave me excellent recommendations for individuals in other businesses along the way as well. His professionalism was superb and positive energy was just what I needed. I recommend him whole-heartedly! You will not be disappointed with Patrick Sarb as your realtor! Many thanks to Patrick and Strüb Residential for their excellent customer service! Job well done!  – Kori C.

“Any time our kiddos came with us to look at homes, you could find Patrick entertaining them so we could take the time to look around the home without the distraction.”

My wife and I highly recommend Strüb Residential. We have used them two times now to close on homes in Austin and have had great experiences each time. We recently used Patrick when moving from East Austin to North Austin and couldn’t have been more pleased. After months of searching and lots of changes on our end, he stuck with us and helped us find the home that we were looking for. He was also quick to respond, knowledgeable and very friendly. Any time our kiddos came with us to look at homes, you could find Patrick entertaining them so we could take the time to look around the home without the distraction. My older son especially loved seeing him and asks about him now. Don’t hesitate to reach out to Strüb for your real estate needs and ask for Patrick!  – Joe P.

“The work he put in before even meeting with us was impressive.”

Strüb residential treats everyone as if they are their only customer. Our agent Patrick Sarb came to our first meeting with a preliminary write up on our home and the homes in our area along with information about all the services Strüb offers their customers. The work he put in before even meeting with us was impressive. We found out that included with signing with Strüb, is a meeting with a stager who will help advise you on how best to showcase your home and when you are finally ready an amazing photographer will provide the photos. Patrick walked us through several comps in the area and showed us what other houses around us look like when they go up for sale. Patrick helped us create a to do list based on what we hoped to accomplish, he helped us shop for a few pieces for staging, and he met with us regularly to talk us through where we were and how best to get where we were going. When we put our house on the market, we had three offers over asking price by the end of the first weekend and that was undoubtedly all due to Patrick’s advice, encouragement, and support. We could not have sold our home without him and we definitely made more money than we would have with a less invested agent. Stub creates a professional portfolio for your home that cannot be beat. I highly recommend this company and Patrick Sarb as an agent.  – Mary M.

“There was no pressure placed on us. It was all about finding the right home that fit our budget…”

The team at Strüb Residential were supportive and professional from day one. As a first time homebuyer, I and my fiancé had no clue what we were doing, what we wanted or how extensive of a process buying a home would be. Our realtor, Patrick Sarb, was so friendly and made us feel like all our needs were met. Even needs we didn’t even know! There was no pressure placed on us. It was all about finding the right home that fit our budget and had all the things we were looking for. Everyone who we told that we were buying a house kept telling us “Ugh that process is a roller coaster with highs and lows”. But, with Patrick and everyone at Strüb behind us, the process went incredibly smooth. I kept waiting for something to go wrong, but it never came. And when closing day came, I couldn’t believe it because not one thing went wrong or made us second guess our decision. We are incredibly thankful to Patrick and everyone at Strüb for making our home buying dreams come true. I know how sappy that sounds, but it’s the truth!  – Tyler M.

“…he answered every email I sent…”

Patrick was great and so helpful in my search for finding a place in Austin. Without Patrick, I wouldn’t have been able to find such a great place that I love in such a small time window. And he answered every email I sent him which must have been 2-3 a day. Really cannot say enough great things about my experience with Patrick. I even recommended him to my brother to help him with his house search.  – Mary L.

“He handles all obstacles with genuine care and professionalism.”

Patrick was exactly what we hoped for during our search. When looking for a new home, things can easily become stressful and overwhelming. Patrick is friendly, informative and always made us feel comfortable and relaxed throughout the process. He handles all obstacles with genuine care and professionalism. Patrick answered all of our questions and even helped present us with some we had overlooked. Not once did we feel rushed or ignored. He was thorough and flexible to accommodate our needs and schedules. In the end, Patrick left us feeling like family. We couldn’t be happier with our new place and our decision to go with STRÜB! Hope you can make it to the housewarming party, Patrick! We miss you already!  – Kathryn R.

“He said on way more than one occasion “I got you” and he MEANT IT.”

I 100% recommend Strüb Residential and Patrick Sarb! From the moment I first visited their website I was given excellent services. I first spoke with Kristina who asked what we were in need of and actually paid attention. I know this seems simple enough, but her ability to know to pair us with Patrick as our realtor, tells me that she was dedicated to providing personal service from the beginning. Once I was introduced to Patrick, it was very clear I didn’t need to look any further. He was the perfect combination of professional and friendly and did an incredible job of paying attention to detail at all times. Not only did he provide us with a strong wealth of information we needed, he was considerate of how we were feeling, flexible, always available and even talked me off the ledge several times when the prospect of selling our home and moving to another state became almost too much to handle. He said on way more than one occasion “I got you” and he MEANT IT. He is genuine and confident and ultimately got us a great deal on a great home. I believe that he told me on more than one occasion that Strüb Residential prides itself on providing first class service, and this was not an overstatement. I am not sure that we would have made it through this process with our heads intact if it wasn’t for Patrick. If you are wondering how this company can have so many awesome reviews, I am here to tell you, it is because they are dedicated, professional, and there every step of the way. Pick them, you will not be disappointed! – Jenn H.

“…working with Patrick made it painless…”

My Husband and I worked with Patrick to purchase our first home and really can’t say enough good things about him. Patrick is extremely knowledgeable, approachable, personable, endlessly patient, and incredibly generous with his time (including mornings, evenings, and weekends over the course of several months). Patrick answered every question and explained every form and every part of the process clearly and thoroughly. Buying a home in this market is challenging, but working with Patrick made it as painless and straightforward as possible. We highly recommend Patrick and the team at Strüb Residential. – Patrick J.

“It was very easy.”

We recently used Patrick Sarb as a leasing agent for a rental property. We couldn’t be more pleased as Patrick found a well qualified tenant within 2 weeks, and then handled all the leasing details. It was very easy. Thanks so much Patrick and Strub Residential! – Jeff R.

“…one of the friendliest, funniest people I’ve met…”

Patrick is not only my new go to real estate agent, he is my new go to best friend (which he will know once he reads this post.) But honestly, working with him was a joy. Patrick Sarb is one of the friendliest, funniest people I’ve met and extremely knowledgable about the Austin market. You would be a fool to work with anyone in Austin besides him! – Kameron H.

“We always felt like a priority…”

We worked with Patrick who was such an amazing, efficient, and dedicated realtor. He helped us get our dream home quickly, and for the price we wanted. Patrick took care of looking into a huge variety of paperwork, questions, last minute needs from our lender, and was always kind spirited and motivated to get us our best deal. House hunting/buying can be so very stressful, but Patrick was so understanding and patient with us as that it was a very painless experience! We always felt like a priority. Already recommended him to a few people because we trust and like him. Great company as well who always helped each other, and were knowledgeable and got us to the closing table. Thank you all! – Cait B.

“He went out of his way to help…”

Patrick Sarb is the best! He went out of his way to help us after the fact with the landlord. He has always been there for any questions or comments. – Don W.

“…he made the entire transition a lot smoother…”

Patrick was a huge help. He answered my questions same day as I’d email them and was very personable over the phone. I had never even been to Austin before moving there and he made the entire transition a lot smoother. He even went so far as to go to the properties for me and take pictures himself so I could get a better view of what it looked like. All without my even asking to do so although it turned out to be highly helpful. – Joe S.

“…he worked tirelessly…”

Patrick my Strub agent was engaging and more important knowledgeable and responsive to all of my wants and questions.  I was moving from out of state so depended on Patrick to identify the homes that met my criteria and he worked tirelessly in getting me the information I needed to get the home I wanted. – Thomas R.

“You can’t go wrong with Patrick…”

Patrick Sarb is an excellent agent. You can’t go wrong with Patrick… give him a call! – Jil B.
