I love Austin, I love real estate and I love serving others.
I was born and raised here in this incredible city and I have first hand knowledge of Austin’s history, community, nightlife and like to consider myself an expert on public and private schools in the area.
My past experience includes teaching, research, marketing and management. And since I am from here, it is only natural that I enjoy listening to and playing music!

“She listened carefully to all of my requirements for a home… and developed an intuitive database outlining homes that met this criteria.”
Rosie was an absolute joy to work with. She was incredibly in-touch with the Austin-metro market and kept me well informed on a daily basis about the intensive processes that go into purchasing a home in this hot market. She listened carefully to all of my requirements for a home (design, neighborhoods, budget, etc.) and developed an intuitive database outlining homes that met this criteria. Highly recommend her if you are overwhelmed [like I was] to purchase a home in this market and are looking for someone to make the process as smooth as possible.

“…she helped us create a winning offer.”
We had a short, yet amazing experience with our realtor Rosie Ochoa from STRÜB Residential. Being first time homebuyers we we’re completely clueless on how this process can go – on top of that being in Austin, TX where the housing market is crazy right now! Rosie was able to show us any property that we were interested in quickly. When we found a property that we wanted to make an offer on, she helped us create a winning offer. Thank you, Rosie, for such a pleasant experience as first-time homebuyers!

“Super nice and she never pressured me.”
Rosie was an awesome REALTOR! Super nice and she never pressured me. She is very knowledgeable. I would definitely use her services again in the future and recommend her to anyone who is looking for a REALTOR.
– Devon F.
“I always trusted Rosie to be a trusted advisor while staying neutral and objective.”
Rosie was an awesome realtor to work with. I was a first time home buyer moving from CA and just didn’t know the area too well. I always trusted Rosie to be a trusted advisor while staying neutral and objective. I never felt like I was pressured into making any decisions. She has a very calm demeanor about her. Would recommend her without question.
– Tony P.
“Throughout the process, Rosie thoroughly communicated with us, made recommendations and, best of all, made us feel super comfortable.”
Rosie Ochoa was extremely helpful and knowledgeable guiding us in the process of buying a home. The greatest obstacle was being out of state, but Rosie ensured that we were able to virtually tour every house we were interested in. There were times where she would go to multiple homes in just one day which was amazing. Throughout the process, Rosie thoroughly communicated with us, made recommendations and, best of all, made us feel super comfortable. The housing market in Austin is very competitive right now and Rosie was able to find us a house in under a month. To top it off, Rosie met us the day we moved in and made sure we were satisfied with our home. She even brought us a cute gift basket. We will be recommending STRUB to our friends and family or anyone looking for a home in the Austin area.
“She knew exactly how to handle this multiple offer market and I strongly doubt we would have gotten it without her.”
Rosie was our REALTOR at Strüb Residential and we were so lucky to have her. As first-time home buyers, she made the experience an absolute breeze for us. We ended up getting our second offer on a home accepted after just three weeks of searching. She knew exactly how to handle this multiple offer market and I strongly doubt we would have gotten it without her. She was a joy to communicate with and be around during our home search journey. We would highly recommend her!
– Sarah N.
“She also continually provided us with recommendations for adjacent services like electricians and landscapers.”
Strüb Residential made our first-time homebuying experience very easy. We relocated to Austin about a year ago and were looking to set down roots now that we had a better feel for the area. Strüb was our first choice, and we are glad that we chose them. It should be no surprise buying a house in 2020/2021 that the market was extremely competitive with some houses receiving an incredible amount of offers. Our Agent, Rosie, helped us navigate making a competitive offer and we were done with our home search in record time! Rosie was polite, accommodating and truly helped us from start to finish in this process, including checking in on us after the purchase was complete. She also continually provided us with recommendations for adjacent services like electricians and landscapers. She truly made us feel like we were part of her family. If you are in doubt, ask for Rosie, she will take care of you. Rosie, if you read this, you’re the best! We’d never want to buy another house without you!
– Devin L.
“Rosie helped me to make a very strong offer using all different techniques…”
I decided it was time to purchase my first house this past Fall and so I was referred to Strüb Residential by my friend. The team made me even more excited about the idea of buying a house so I couldn’t wait to make it happen! Rosie worked with me diligently, taking me to dozens of houses so I could find the perfect one. I really had no idea what exactly I wanted in the beginning so by looking at many different types, we really got to figure out exactly what I was looking for. Anytime that I would get down about the search during this competitive market, Rosie would reassure me that we would find the perfect one, and we did! Rosie helped me to make a very strong offer using all different techniques that really helped strengthen the offer package. I could not be happier with my new home and I am so grateful for all the time and effort that Rosie put into making this happen for me!
– Deborah M.
“She knew what we were looking for and didn’t go above our budget. Very thankful to have had her as our realtor…”
If you have the slightest doubt about what you can or can’t do, get with Rosie Ochoa!! Me and my fiancé were looking to buy a house and just wanted to kick the can around on what was possible. Rosie made it very easy to understand and was patient with us throughout the whole process. She knew what we were looking for and didn’t go above our budget. Very thankful to have had her as our realtor in this year we wish we could forget!
– Abel Z.
“She sent me daily updates and I told her when I saw it, I’d know it was the one. The day this house was listed, Rosie pounced and in a multiple offer situation, my offer was accepted.”
I have bought and sold with Strüb before, so it was a no brainer to call them up again when I decided to purchase a new home. I had the pleasure of working with Rosie Ochoa on my search for a perfect home as I looked to move out of Austin to Taylor. I was picky and was determined to find what I considered my perfect house. She sent me daily updates and I told her when I saw it, I’d know it was the one. The day this house was listed, Rosie pounced and in a multiple offer situation, my offer was accepted. She helped me every step of the way and made the process a breeze. I have been in my new-to-me home for just about 3 weeks and it feels like a dream. I am so thankful for all of the time and effort Rosie put into helping it come true.

“We had met with a few other realtors, but Rosie stood out. She listened to our needs and made sure we weren’t wasting our time.”
This review is for Rosie. She. Is. Awesome. Rosie was incredibly helpful in helping us buy our first home. She was super thorough in explaining the process, which we loved. She’s also extremely patient, efficient, and knowledgeable. She helped us find our dream home in about a month! We had met with a few other realtors, but Rosie stood out. She listened to our needs and made sure we weren’t wasting our time. I highly recommend her for your home buying/rental needs!
– Elony B.
“Rosie showed me around Austin (virtually through FaceTime) and was able to answer all of my many, many questions about the buying process and about the Austin area. She has so much love for the city…”
Thank you so much to the Strüb team for making my move happen. This was my first home purchase. I was moving from out of state and I had never even been to the Austin area — all of that combined with the pandemic making travel impossible made this a tough case to solve! Rosie Ochoa definitely rose to the occasion, and she was so helpful and kind throughout the entire process. Rosie showed me around Austin (virtually through FaceTime) and was able to answer all of my many, many questions about the buying process and about the Austin area. She has so much love for the city — she made me so excited to move to the area and I am so, so glad I did! Our buying process was definitely not the easiest and we had many challenges, but Rosie was able to navigate us through it all with poise and we ended up with my dream first home! I love my home so much and could not have had a better experience with the buying process — thank you so much Rosie and the Strüb team!

“…Rosie was able to help me find a house that had everything I was looking for (and more!)”
Rosie Ochoa was phenomenal! As a first-time buyer in a very competitive Austin market (and during a global pandemic), Rosie was able to help me find a house that had everything I was looking for (and more!). Her communication was always spot on and she was always willing to find an answer to my thousands of questions if she didn’t already know it.
– Devyn T.
“Based on my comments she knew exactly which direction we were going and ultimately found us the perfect property with a great location…”
Rosie Ochoa did an excellent job helping us with our recent condo purchase despite us being from out of state! She contacted me a few weeks before we were to arrive in Austin and sent several properties for us to review in the portal, as well as taking video tours with her phone to send to us. Based on my comments she knew exactly which direction we were going and ultimately found us the perfect property with a great location for our son to rent while attending UT. She was punctual, prepared and has a very quick response time to questions and/or concerns. After the sale she helped connect us to contractors to make sure the place was ready for move in day. She goes above and beyond and we highly recommend her as she gets the job done!

“My effort was minimal, and the process was stress free.”
Rosie was on point and helped me get my rental unit filled in no time! She helped me understand the market in my neighborhood and keep the showings safe while we go through this awful pandemic. My effort was minimal, and the process was stress free. I will definitely use Rosie @ Strüb again.
– Rhianna S.
“She even got me a deal, even after I had given up and walked away. She never gave up.”
Rosia Ochoa is the bestest. As a non-“investor” I had a hard time getting my offers taken seriously, but Rosie kept at it. We submitted 5 offers until we got a contract. While she was just as frustrated as I was, she kept a good attitude about it. When we were finally under contract and the appraisal came in way under the asking price, Rosie played HARD BALL like a pro. She even got me a deal, even after I had given up and walked away. She never gave up. Austin (metro) is a tough market for us normal people. So, you want someone who is on your side. Done and dusted.
– J. D.
“She not only was able to negotiate a good deal for me but provided me with emotional support when the lender fell through. She even recommended a new lender and we were able to close in 2 weeks.”
Strüb Residential was recommended to me by a lender I was working with and I can’t say enough good things about them. Rosie Ochoa did an amazing job representing me with purchasing my new Austin home. She not only was able to negotiate a good deal for me but provided me with emotional support when the lender fell through. She even recommended a new lender and we were able to close in 2 weeks. I cannot recommend Strüb and Rosie Ochoa enough!
– Stephanie R.
“Always calm, attentive, and still easy going.”
Rosie was phenomenal! If it wasn’t for her diligence and kindness, this already stressful task would have seemed impossible. Always calm, attentive, and still easy going. My wife and I cannot recommend Rosie enough! Thanks for rolling with the punches on the fly and helping us find our first family home. You always got friends in Buda!!!
– Matthew A.
“We were based in NYC and had to do absolutely everything remotely, including seeing the house, and Rosie still managed to help us find the perfect place!”
Rosie was absolutely phenomenal in helping us rent a house in Austin. She had a really good sense of exactly the style of home we were looking for and sent us so many amazing options from the get-go. Did I mention that she helped us navigate this whole situation in the midst of a full-on pandemic? We were based in NYC and had to do absolutely everything remotely, including seeing the house, and Rosie still managed to help us find the perfect place! She was incredibly quick on getting our application through to the owner, and we had everything taken care of in less than 48 hours of seeing the home. I can’t recommend Strüb highly enough, and we will definitely be going with Rosie when we’re ready to buy!
– Zoe T.
“…there were a lot of potential issues, she helped me avoid and advocated on my behalf on numerous occasions throughout the process.”
We worked with Rosie from Strüb to find our new home. I was moving from Sacramento and needed to close ASAP. I gave her the budget and priorities and she did all the legwork and set up a series of appointments for me when I got in town, but we ended up buying the first one we toured. As a first-time home buyer there were a lot of potential issues, she helped me avoid and advocated on my behalf on numerous occasions throughout the process. At no point did I feel pressured or uninformed which was nice. My family and I are very grateful to Rosie and Strüb for going above and beyond to help us find our perfect home. I recommend using a realtor if you’re not a professional home buyer as there is a lot more to the process than you might think and having Rosie really took a lot of the burden off of me.

“She kept calm and cool when I was overreacting and took care of all details no matter how small.”
Rosie Ochoa was my real estate concierge. She kept calm and cool when I was overreacting and took care of all details no matter how small. I appreciated that she was there to assist me, not the other agent and her clients. She helped me sell a house I loved, and simultaneously buy another that I loved. I closed on both houses on consecutive days. Good planning on her part. I highly recommend Rosie.
– Niki G.
“Rosie is very, very helpful during all stages – before, during and after the time of signing. She had quite a bit of a challenge too!”
I reached out to Mark Strüb on 1/13. It is 2/5 now and am going through the motions of closing on my first home! Rosie is very, very helpful during all stages – before, during and after the time of signing. She had quite a bit of a challenge too! – Home within my budget, for my mom who is not in Austin to physically tour homes with us AND within 30 days! I’m sure Strüb has plenty of different types of clients but they are very understanding and took the extra time to make me, a first-time home buyer, not just feel but ensure that I was, in fact, well-educated throughout the process. For those that feel that they can possibly purchase a home without a REALTOR, there are intricacies throughout each stage that they can protect you from. Over time and within the Austin market, things change. Depending on whether you’re purchasing a new construction home or a pre-owned home, there are mandatory AND optional things that one has to be well educated on in order to make the right decisions for such a significant purchase. There are some businesses around town that I support at 100% and will also refer my friends to and this would be one of them.

“…we found the perfect place for me, and $10k under budget. I’m so happy with the house and can’t believe I’m a homeowner.”
This review is for Rosie Ochoa at Strüb. I started out looking for a house to rent in Austin that would accommodate my large dog. I found Rosie as a leasing agent and she guided me through finding a house to rent in Austin. However, I had so much trouble finding a place to rent (I think having a large dog was a deterrent to getting places), that Rosie gently recommended that I might consider buying a place. I had great credit and some money saved, and she explained how there were places in my budget where I’d be paying the same amount for my mortgage and insurance every month as I’d be paying for the same houses I was looking to rent. It made sense to me and wasn’t even an option I had considered. I’m so glad that she recommended it, even though I know it was in her best interest as well. She was always available to show houses and had a lot of patience with my pickiness. Our determination paid off, and after a month of looking, we found the perfect place for me, and $10k under budget. I’m so happy with the house and can’t believe I’m a homeowner. Thanks Rosie and Strüb!
