It seems like since I can remember I have enjoyed living to serve others. As a native Texan with deep roots in the service industry and a well-traveled international drummer, I always strive to “give the people what they want.”  I am no stranger to hard work, long hours and doing what it takes to not only get the job done but get it done efficiently, effectively and with a happy customer in the end.

With exceptional service and a wealth of local knowledge and resources, I will help you every step of the way to achieve your short and long-term financial and housing goals. I help clients with real estate needs across the board including leasing, purchasing, selling and investing.

When not assisting clients, I’m an active performing artist, drum instructor, member of the PDGA, and, if I do say so myself, one heck of a chef.

“The whole way from showings to open houses to making an offer and closing were substantially easier than I ever would have thought they could be.”

Stewart Lane was just fantastic to work with. He was so knowledgeable, so patient, and so incredibly helpful at each step in the process. Any time I had a question or a request, he was always super responsive. I never felt like anything that I was looking for was too specific or that I was being too picky in the process. The whole way from showings to open houses to making an offer and closing were substantially easier than I ever would have thought they could be. I don’t think I could possibly say enough good things about working with Stewart!

“Stewart responded quickly to all my emails and phone calls and he was always on time to our meetings. We were able to sell my previous home the first day on the market.”

I would highly recommend Stewart Lane with Strüb Residential if you’re looking to buy or sell your home in the Austin, TX area. Stewart recently helped me sell my previous home and buy another home. He did an amazing job with both transactions. It was my first time to sell a home and he really helped guide me through the whole process. Stewart responded quickly to all my emails and phone calls and he was always on time to our meetings. We were able to sell my previous home the first day on the market. For the next home, Stewart drove me around to look at several houses, I found one that I really liked, and he was able to help me get under contract on the home that I wanted…really hard to do in this competitive Austin market. Stewart proved that he is one of the best real estate agents in the Austin area and his team at Strüb Residential is excellent.

– Devin S.

“ Very nice, knowledgeable, helpful…”

Excellent experience with Strüb realtors in general, and Stewart Lane in particular was great in selling our condo. Very nice, knowledgeable, helpful and know how to work with. Highly recommended.

“He helps with all aspects of preparing your property for the market including professional photographs and a make-ready designer consultation all paid up front by him.”

STRÜB Residential in Greater Austin are the best company and Stewart Lane is the best agent I have ever dealt with. He has sold four properties in my family and two of them had multiple bidders and sold significantly over asking price in the first week. STRÜB and Stewart also have successfully rented several of my income properties. Stewart is a consummate professional. He helps with all aspects of preparing your property for the market including professional photographs and a make-ready designer consultation all paid up front by him. He understands marketing and the best way to present a property and is willing to invest himself in that process. STRÜB is a full-service agency run by a savvy team. Stewart is my go-to guy and, believe me, I am a very demanding client having been an agent myself many years ago and spending most of my career in marketing. Also, I’m a perfectionist and very demanding which he is too so it’s a great fit. We work together very well and also enjoy each other’s business ethics and sense of humor. Stewart is also just a really fun guy to work with. Truly exemplifying the ethos, “Do good, have fun, make money.” Go with STRÜB and get Stewart Lane as your agent and you will achieve or exceed your goals while having fun doing it!

“This gentleman executed the deal with care, patience, transparency and precision.”

Stew Lane @ Strüb Residential. This man is savvy, intelligent, efficient, deeply caring and 100% invested when it came down to the biggest transaction my wife and I made in 2019. This gentleman executed the deal with care, patience, transparency and precision. I don’t recall how many rides we went on in search of our new home, but he was in and never wavered regardless of the weather. His determination was relentless and his expert advice throughout was smart. You want and need Stew Lane on your side when ready to buy or sell property. We love our new home and the relationship we built with Stew.

– Jesus B.

“Rain or shine, Stew was there for us.”

Stewart Lane was awesome! He patiently showed us house after house even before we knew we were truly ready to make the change. He did a great job with the sale of our home. We were lucky to go into multiple offers on the first weekend while we were out of town. He handled everything for us without any problems. He then continued to drive us all over Austin to find the perfect home for us. Rain or shine, Stew was there for us. We love our new home, and the great friendship we found in Stew.

– Cheri C.

“Got us 16% over asking…”

Got us 16% over asking…. can’t beat that! My extended family has used them multiple times and been happy every time.

– Dot S.

“…Stew took care of all of our needs and worries.”

Stew Lane did such a great job for my family! Selling a house from 1980 is a stressful event and Stew took care of all of our needs and worries. He gave achievable house repair advice and when we had an electrical issue, he had recommendations for service that we used. Thank you strüb residential :: überagents + realtors and Stew Lane!

– John B.

“…Stewart has been in contact consistently since we closed.His mindset was definitely aligned with ours to find a home, taking our wishes into consideration to curate listings to show us.”

Working with Stewart (and everyone) from Strüb Residential made purchasing my own home easy and informative. Stewart was our agent and guided us through every step. He was always available almost as soon as a new listing went up. His mindset was definitely aligned with ours to find a home, taking our wishes into consideration to curate listings to show us. I had concerns about health issues (air quality, etc.) so we discussed risks of mold in certain places and ruled out certain places we visited as having too high of risk. The home I ended up buying has been great, and I’ve had no health issues or concerns with air quality, since he recommended a great mold inspector to allay my concerns. Coincidentally, Stewart is also a musician, so he was super helpful in his recommendations for a place to enjoy living and enjoy playing loud instruments (i.e. drums). I’d definitely recommend Strüb Residential to anyone, no matter their home-buying experience. The process is stressful enough, so why not work with people who reduce that stress and make it enjoyable?

– Aaron S.

“We have worked together on 3 homes and each time he has been a delight..”

Long overdue review for the outstanding Stewart Lane. We have worked together on 3 homes and each time he has been a delight. Stewart has always been professional and diligent throughout each transaction. And most of all, his transparency helped ease my mind and made the journey fun. Yes, FUN! As usual, I will give Stewart a jingle next time!

– Andrea C.

“He definitely made me feel confident about the home buying process…”

I worked with Stewart Lane of Strüb Residential to buy my new house in the North Austin/Pflugerville area and it was a great experience! Stewart was super easy to work with and very knowledgeable. He definitely made me feel confident about the home buying process and was always available to answer my questions. I would definitely recommend Strüb Residential (and especially Stewart Lane) for your real estate needs if you’re looking to buy in the Austin area.

– Katie S.

“…Stewart has been in contact consistently since we closed.”

Strüb has been awesome for us. We were first time home buyers three years ago and Stewart has been in contact consistently since we closed. Not only are they incredible in the house buying process, but they host special events to show their appreciation for working with them. A+ all around. 

– Josh D.

“…awesome, patient, flexible, accommodating and sharp.”

Stewart Lane is awesome, patient, flexible, accommodating and sharp. He takes care of my entire family in their real estate needs.

– Amy H.

“The buyer was the buyer from hell and Stewart navigated all the difficulties with great patience.”

Stewart was great with my house. The buyer was the buyer from hell and Stewart navigated all the difficulties with great patience. Happy with his work and would recommend him to anyone!

– Tracy M.

“He answered our questions clearly and thoroughly so that we were never in doubt…”

Last year we started looking into purchasing a home. We partnered with a real estate agent who was not with Strüb Residential and advised we had never looked into purchasing before and didn’t know anything about the process. He was not very informative or helpful. The answers he gave to our questions left us unclear but not wanting to seek clarification. He took us to a home that was open for renters, not purchasers. He spent much of our time together on his phone. It was not a great experience. Fast forward one year when we began looking again. Stewart of Strüb Residential helped us find and purchase our first home in Hutto, Texas. His guidance was superb. He answered our questions clearly and thoroughly so that we were never in doubt about what needed to happen next or where we stood. Even after we purchased the home, the papers were signed, and some weeks had passed, Stewart continued to be responsive and answered questions that came up long after he could have washed his hands of us. An excellent experience all around.

– Daniel B.

“He reminded us whenever we needed to hear it not to compromise for anything short of our dream house.”

I haven’t written a yelp review for years, but the service I received from Stew Lane and the team at Strüb residential has got me inspired to write. Stew was a great listener and advocate for us. He reminded us whenever we needed to hear it not to compromise for anything short of our dream house. He toured so, so many houses with us. Whenever we felt like we were wearing him down he would come back with the line “you will get tired before I do,” and he meant it. When we finally found the place that we wanted he helped us navigate dealing with a perfectly unpleasant seller and their agent. He also hooked us up with a great lender that got us a great rate and was full of helpful tips first homebuyers like us about which types of insurance, warranties, etc., we really needed. From tip to tail, a wonderful first home-buying experience thanks to Stew’s expertise!

– S. R.

“He had his own unique detailed plans on how to list and market my home to where it would get the best and most traffic and to have it ideally sold as quickly as possible.”

This was my first time selling a home, and I certainly couldn’t have gotten it done without the help from Stewart Lane and his team at STRÜB. From our initial meet with going over my goals, Stewart had it all laid out for me on what to expect and what was needed to be done to meet them. He had his own unique detailed plans on how to list and market my home to where it would get the best and most traffic and to have it ideally sold as quickly as possible. I knew early on I had made the right decision to go with Stewart, but to go into our first weekend of the home being listed, and by Monday morning having a contract; I couldn’t have asked for a better realtor to represent me and my home. Stewart took pride in taking on the sale of my home, regardless of the sales price. Stewart’s attention to detail and experience was certainly the reason for the outcome of my sale. If anyone is looking for a great person to act as their realtor, and to know that their own interest is met first; then Stewart and his team at STRÜB will provide that, and MORE. I look forward to working with Stewart again when I am ready to purchase of my new home. THANK YOU!

– Dany U.

“…again he went above and beyond and bent over backwards…”

Stewart Lane has done it again. We just rented out our condo for a second time, and of course once again called on the services of our trusty realtor Stewart. And yet again he went above and beyond and bent over backwards to get our place rented out. My wife and I can’t say enough great things about this guy and about Strüb Residential. Stewart is one of many reasons this is one of the top rated places on Yelp (and he’s by far the biggest reason we keep coming back to Strüb)! Thanks Stewart!!!

– Jay H.

“Stewart’s knowledge of the market and vast experience made his estimates very accurate…”

If we could give Stewart ten stars instead of five, we would! It was amazing working with him, and he was very conscientious and very knowledgeable about where we were in the selling process and where we needed to get to. The details: We were putting a huge, 30-year-old house in Georgetown up for sale, and honestly, we needed a lot of advice. Property values in the area had gone up and a lot of our neighbors had sold their houses, and done some renovations and etc. We had a very specific budget we wanted to meet, and it was important to us that we not overspend on renovating and not get results. Stewart was there right off to answer all of our questions. He gave us really solid advice on what to work on, and what to skip. He came out to check out our progress and handled everything so that all we needed to worry about was the remodel. When we needed a paint person, a tile person, a cleanup person and all that stuff, we checked out the people Stewart recommended, and they all worked out great. They did the work, at budget and on time and did really high-quality work. After open houses and when other realtors came by, Stewart gave us feedback and helped us really fine tune what we needed to change. Stewart’s knowledge of the market and vast experience made his estimates very accurate, so we spent what we wanted to spend and sold the house for what we wanted to get, and best of all it happened in the timeframe Stewart had given us. That kind of experience is really hard to come by and we’ve had experiences, both residential and commercial over the years, with other realtors and we’ve never had as good an experience as we did with Stewart. It’s been almost a year since then (I’m so late writing this review Stewart, I’m sorry!) but the time is sometimes good for reflection, and honestly, we’re still 110% pleased with how smoothly things went. 10/5 stars!

“We had tons of questions, and every time my husband sent an email, he answered each question thoughtfully and thoroughly, providing the data we needed.”

Being new to the area we needed an agent that could help inform us about neighborhoods. We needed detailed data, not only about the neighborhoods but upcoming development and expansion of highways. We also needed an agent that was patient with our questions and would answer them in-depth. And we wanted an agent that could really narrow down the list of homes to what aligned to our criteria. We had been working with another broker at another firm and were extremely frustrated with our experience. So, we took our time interviewing several firms before picking Strüb Residential and Stewart as our agent. Stewart was great for so many reasons. We spent a lot of time upfront going over our list of criteria, and instead of sending us a flood of homes that didn’t meet our criteria, he tailored the homes sent to us, personally filtering them first to ensure we were not overloaded and wasting our time reviewing homes that were not relevant. We had tons of questions, and every time my husband sent an email, he answered each question thoughtfully and thoroughly, providing the data we needed. Throughout the process he was patient and informative. He never pushed us to make an offer on a home, but once we were ready and found the home we wanted, he moved quickly with our offer and ensured everything went smoothly. He kept close contact with the seller’s agent and informed us every step of the way. He’s been a great resource even after we’ve moved in. We are very happy in our dream home, which wouldn’t have happened without Stewart.

– Kat K.

“Great experience!”

Great experience! Stewart was a great guide during the buying/selling process!!!!

– Rob T.

“…he blew me away by his ability to accurately predict within $1-2k the houses true value (which was WAY under asking price)…”

Mark and his team, most notably Stewart, are amazing at what they do. I was lucky enough to get a recommendation from a coworker based off the fact that Stewart worked with them for two years before they found a house that was perfect for them. Patience was a key thing for us as we were in no rush, and after a long break in looking, Stewart jumped at the chance to help continue our search. Once we found the perfect house, he blew me away by his ability to accurately predict within $1-2k the houses true value (which was WAY under asking price), then have countless meetings and phone calls to get the deal done. Overall it was a fun, efficient, smart, and successful experience working with Strub and specifically Stewart.

– Alex J.

“I received a personal touch, with the company and Stewart truly invested in my purchase.”

First time home buyer that couldn’t be more pleased with my experience with STRÜB Residential and my agent, Stewart Lane. I received a personal touch, with the company and Stewart truly invested in my purchase. Stewart walked me through the process start to finish. There was never a shortage of homes or recommendations. Within a few weeks, I walked away as a new home buyer and a strong supporter of this organization. If you are looking for a home in the greater Austin area, look no further and trust the people who have been here for a while.

– Cy S.

“…Stewart put in the extra work to make sure I was happy…”

Stewart Lane and STRÜB Residential are the real deal. Their customer service is second to none and they proved time and again they are willing to go the extra mile for their customers. Having gone through most of the home buying process in the middle of my move, Stewart put in the extra work to make sure I was happy and involved in the entire home-buying process. I’d highly recommend Stewart for your home purchasing. You can’t find better folks to do the nitty gritty work in buying a home locally than STRÜB.

– Wayne S.

“I could never had sold my home without him.”

Stewart was very knowledgeable on all aspects for the industry. Very tentative and responsive to my text and emails. I could never had sold my home without him. I would recommend to anyone selling or buyer a home. Thanks Stewart, you Rock!

– Gordon J.

“…we avoided thousands of dollars in repairs…”

Stewart Lane and Strub Residential helped us navigate through the challenges of selling our old house and finding a great new one. Thanks to Stewart’s tenacity and due diligence, we avoided thousands of dollars in repairs that we would have been on the hook for. Can’t recommend Stewart highly enough!

– Trey R.

“His integrity and transparency are present at all times…”

It is such a pleasure to write this review. My husband, Kevin, and I are competing to find the best words to capture our experience with Strüb Residential, and specifically with Stewart Lane, since every aspect of service exceeded our expectations. Kevin has used “phenomenal,” “extraordinary,” and “awesome.” I find myself saying “stellar,” “spectacular,” and “truly remarkable.” Needless to say, we are over-the-moon about our new house/home and how the entire search and purchasing process went. Given Stewart’s expertise and genuine commitment to us, we found ourselves on a smooth and clear path to first-time home ownership, despite the challenge of moving from California and needing to conduct at least 90% of this business remotely. It all started with my internet search, looking for a real estate company that aligned with our values. We prefer working with and supporting local businesses, and it’s even better when we learn of their investment in the community. Strub hit the mark. Once I spoke to Kristina over the phone, and she connected us to Stewart, the bond was cinched. Stewart took the time to learn who we are — our interests, hobbies, values, needs, etc. — so that he could help us find the best home through remote search options. He was (and still is, almost 2 months after closing) extremely accessible by phone, text, and email, for all of our questions, concerns, apprehensions, crazy ideas & requests, and more. We had been renting a tiny house in the Silicon Valley for 23 years (not able to afford the insane housing prices there) and we needed someone with knowledge and patience to help us understand the ins and outs of not only buying a house, but buying a house ~1800 miles away. Stewart’s knowledge and patience are incredibly impressive. He explained every step with an appropriate level of detail (satisfying my highly inquisitive and skeptical software engineer husband isn’t easy). His integrity and transparency are present at all times, and his successful negotiations on our behalf served us well. Stewart consistently gives us great recommendations and helped us make informed decisions for all sorts of things related to the purchase, as well as work that we needed or wanted to do once we bought the house. In a nutshell, we cannot praise Stewart enough. He goes above and beyond with each and every communication and transaction. We remark to one another and to our friends & family that we have been blessed by Stewart’s attention and dedication to our happiness. We honestly have nothing short of new awesome friend in Austin. We are so grateful!

– Heidi K.

“Stewart helped us find what is, honestly, our dream home…”

I can’t recommend Strüb Residential and our Strüb agent – Stewart Lane – highly enough. Stewart happily and patiently guided us through weeks of simultaneously prepping our old home for sale and searching for the perfect new home, never once pushing us towards a property that wasn’t everything we were looking for. Finding a home that would meet the needs of everyone in our household would be a challenge for any realtor (I’m in a wheelchair; my husband’s a mountain climber; our daughter’s a persnickety 4 year old; my father is a persnickety 67 year old) but Stewart helped us find what is, honestly, our dream home – perfect for us and more beautiful than I’d ever hoped for, and for LESS than we were willing to spend! AND he helped us sell our old home for asking price! Strüb and our Strüb agent, Stewart, made the exquisitely stressful ordeal of selling an old house and buying a new house SO much less horrible than it could have been, and helped us find the home of our dreams! If you’re buying or selling (or both) in Austin, THIS is who you need to be working with!

– Martha S.

“He handled all the legwork…”

I worked with Strüb Residential when I bought my Manor, TX home and again when it was time to sell. Stewart Lane was my realtor in both cases. Let me tell you – don’t let Stewart’s young, good looks fool you – he has real estate knowledge in spades! He knows and understands the market, it’s fluctuations, price evaluations, comps, trends and all points in between. He’s advisory when he needs to be and let’s the client make the ultimate decisions. Stewart was always there to answer questions and if he didn’t know something, he’d research it and get an answer back promptly. No guesswork and no confusion. When it was time to find a rental property, not only was he open to suggestion, but open to property finds outside the MLS. He handled all the legwork of speaking with landlord and/or management companies to ensure the homes I reviewed met my needs; especially since I have large dogs. In the end, I found a place very quickly. 10/10 would work with again.

– Brent M.

“…helped through the bumps.”

My agent was wonderful! Was very responsive, answered all of my questions, helped through the bumps. I would highly recommend Strüb Residential especially Stewart!

– Mary S.

“…over the moon helpful with my house purchase.”

Mark & Stewart were over the moon helpful with my house purchase. The patience over 8 months they showed really let me know they cared about me finding the right house and not just closing the first one we came across. Couldn’t recommend more!

– Brent F.

“He was knowledgeable in what to look for…”

When we started looking for a house we figured it would end up being just like the first time, difficult. Five years later, we decided it was time for an upgrade. We were nervous about all the work it was going to take, but we really wanted to move. I looked around and saw all the great reviews for Mark Strüb and his team, I decided to take the chance with them and it was an awesome decision. Mark came out very quickly and looked over our house since we were looking at buying a new house and then selling our old house once we had moved. He gave us some pointers on what we should update or do to the house to help it sell faster. We got a couple lender recommendations and he answered all our questions. We started looking for new houses right away, Mark recommended one of his agents that specializes in North Austin. Here is where our journey with Stewart begins. From the get-go Stewart was responsive to any questions or viewings we want to see. He was interested in knowing what we wanted in a house and probably knew what we wanted more than we did! He was knowledgeable in what to look for that may be “issues” with a house later and what would end up being a money sink or a quick fix. We found an amazing house which ended up getting multiple offers. I highly believe that we were about to get the house due to Stewart and his advice to us when putting the offer in. Then we moved in and started the process to sell our house. This went extremely smooth. We posted our house, sold it, and had the money in our bank in 11 days. I believe that a lot of the improvements (we talked with them about) helped us sell our house that quickly. I can’t imagine having done either the buy or the sell without Stewart and as long as he is still a realtor, I never will!

– Jennifer D.

“…continued to answer our plethora of first-time homeowner questions…”

My wife and I bought our first home 3 years ago with the help of Stewart Lane at Strüb Residential, and despite being the largest purchase we’ve ever made, it was by far one of the easiest transactions we’ve ever made because Stewart was holding our hands through the entire process. More importantly, after the closing (and the lovely bottle of champagne that Stewart presented us with), Stewart has continued to answer our plethora of first-time homeowner questions for the past three years without fail, and always with a positive and reassuring attitude. Most notably, we had to make a last-minute move out of state last year, and we of course turned to Strüb Residential and Stewart to help us lease out our condo, and within a week Stewart had found us (wonderful) tenants and had the lease signed and sorted out at lightning speed. If you are looking to buy, sell, rent, or lease any sort of property in the Austin area, you would be very hard pressed to find a better group of people to guide you through the process than Strüb Residential!

“…Stewart was always on top of everything.”

Mark and his team are absolutely wonderful! Stewart was our realtor and his dedication, expertise and super friendly personality made our first home buying experience in Austin wonderful. The whole process was so smooth. We kept waiting for the hiccup, but Stewart was always on top of everything. He constantly communicated with us, explaining and answering any and all questions we had. On home tours, he didn’t just show us the house, he examined it. Making sure to point out anything that might need repair or replacement. He also has a ton of contacts to help you with home warranties, inspections, HVAC and anything else you might need for your home buying journey. We feel we didn’t just get a wonderful realtor but a great friend in Stewart.

– Lisa J.

“He showed me the key things to look for in a home…”

Stewart Lane did an awesome job at helping me find the right house.  Being a first-time home buyer, I had no idea what I was doing.  Stew was always available for questions, had same day answers, and worked around my hectic schedule.  He showed me the key things to look for in a home, and was extremely patient.  When it came time to make an offer, he made sure that mine was competitive enough to be selected among 25 other offers!  He was even present for closing.  Thank you Stew.

– Jeremy C.

“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!

-Casey C.

“Stewart was on top of EVERYTHING!”

What can I say about the Strub Team that hasn’t been said already?  The reviews speak for themselves.  I live in California and recently sold an investment property in Round Rock using the Strub Team, specifically Stewart Lane.  At no time during the process did I feel I needed to come out to Texas and oversee the listing.  Stewart was on top of EVERYTHING!  Whether it was greasing the wheels with the current tenant, organizing repairs and upgrades, or responding to the unexpected “the alarm is going off and it won’t stop” call, Stewart had it covered.  Without hesitation, I would recommend these guys for your next listing…keep up the great work!

-Brian A.

“He provided great input and looked out for our best interests…”

Let me start with the results of working with Stewart Lane of the StrÜb Residential team. He helped us locate and secure the home of our dreams in a relatively short timeframe. What else could we ask for? The house fits our lifestyle and is in an area of Austin that has the amenities we want. Stewart is extremely knowledgeable about the market. He was highly engaged during the process of finding and buying the home. He provided great input and looked out for our best interests during each phase of the home purchase.  We recommend Stewart highly.  We will most certainly engage him again in any real estate transaction…great work  Stewart!!!   …..Your efforts and skills secured the home we wanted….

– Bernie O.

…professional and knew exactly what he was doing.”

To put it simply, Stewart is a scholar and a gentleman! Of all the apartment locators I contacted, Stew was the only one who responded the same day and really listened to our preferences and requirements (one of us had a broken lease on their record, and we have a bully breed pup). I felt totally taken care of while we discussed things over the phone and email. After hearing all our specifications fully, he built us a list of potential places for us to browse through and pick our favorites. I have had other locators do this same task using the same program, but all other lists I received were full of apartments that were clearly the OPPOSITE of what we required. Not so with the Stewart-crafted lists. So many of them were spot on, we had trouble narrowing down to just a few that we were going to visit. He met us promptly at each specified location, introduced us to the office people, and walked with us on the tours. He was so gracious with his time, and listened to us blabber about what we liked and didn’t like about each place. He knew each apartment’s prices and restrictions and helped us deliberate. It was like he was as invested in finding us the perfect apartment as we were! Eventually we found it. It was (and is) perfect: Stew found a place that was lenient with rental history (there were NO extra fees because of the old broken lease) and allowed ALL dog breeds, so we didn’t have to attempt to pass off the little guy as a “mix.” A few months later, we received a rebate check from him! Overall the experience was better than I could have hoped for. Not only is he excellent at his job, but he is one of the coolest people, and we totally clicked. It was like having a really good friend help us hunt for apartments, and it was just a bonus that he was a professional and knew exactly what he was doing. To top all of the amazingness off, we didn’t have to pay for a thing! He gets payed by the complex when we sign the lease. Needless to say, I would be happy to pay for his services if the situation was as such. Even though our apartment is perfect in pretty much every way, we are dreaming of a bigger place (and hopefully a little yard!), so the next time we are ready to move, Stew is the first person I’ll be calling!

“…went out of his way to be available…”

My wife and I recently purchased our first home, and had an amazing experience with Stewart Lane at Strub Residential. I talked to Mark Strub first and told him we were looking for an inexpensive condo. Mark immediately connected us with Stewart, and we had our own MLS search page set up within the hour. A few days later we went out to look at our first condos together with Stewart, and our car died on us along the way. Stewart was kind enough to drive us around in his car, and did a fantastic job of showing us the places we were interested in. Afterwards he offered to drive us all the way home to Leander. We could already tell at that point we were in good hands. As first time homebuyers, we had a LOT of questions. About EVERYTHING. And Stewart patiently and thoroughly answered every single one of our questions. On the rare occasions he didn’t have an answer for us immediately, he would always follow up later that day, and with lots of details. He was extremely proactive with all of his communication. Stewart also went out of his way to be available anytime we wanted to look at places, weekday or weekend, day or night. And he was always able to accommodate my busy schedule. Once we narrowed down our search to a particular community, he scheduled for us to see all available units in the complex, and we spent most of an afternoon looking at six different units and walking around the community. He gave us all the details on each unit, and never rushed us through any of them. He took careful notes of any problems with each one, just in case we decided to make an offer on one of them. Once we selected our unit, Stewart was incredibly helpful in bargaining with the seller and getting us to a price we were comfortable with. And once our offer was accepted, he took care of EVERYTHING, from setting up the inspection to running checks to title to helping us push up our closing date. At our closing he presented us with a professionally made folder with a copy of our contract, our settlement statement, other relevant documents, and even a form to apply for a homestead exemption. He also gave us a really nice bottle of champagne to celebrate our new home. Two months after moving, my wife and I are loving our new home. But we still have lots of questions about being new homeowners, and Stewart has continued to answer our questions just as quick and thoroughly as before our purchase. He even sends reminder emails, like the one I got from him last week reminding me to file for my homestead exemption. Stewart is always on the ball and very proactive, and that alone makes him an ideal realtor. But beyond the fact that he went above and beyond for us as a realtor, it’s Stewart’s great qualities as a person that really make him stand out. He is honestly one of the nicest guys my wife and I have ever met, the kind of guy you’d want not just as a realtor, but also as a friend.

“…pointed things out I would never have noticed…”

Stew is a professional who made me feel comfortable every step of the way in the process of buying my own home. His patience, knowledge of the city and it’s surroundings were top notch. Every house we looked at he pointed things out I would never have noticed which turned out to be very helpful in the end. To boot, he caught a stipulation in the contract that ended up saving me an extra $3,100 at time of closing! If you’re looking for a personable, knowledgeable & aggressive realtor to have your back I highly recommend Stewart Lane.

-Brent F.

“… provides nothing but outstanding services! “

Stewart Lane provides nothing but outstanding services! I recently put my home up for sale and was more concerned about selling the house in a quick time frame. When I found Stewart online via Yelp, we met the next day and he went over every aspect that comes with selling a home. He explained everything to me in a manner that was very easy to understand, which was very helpful since this was my first time selling a home. We got the home ready to show and it was put on the market sooner than I expected. Stewart was able to market very well and found more than one buyer within a couple of days. The buyers went head to head and we had a price war very soon. Long story short, we were able to sell the house in about a month and a half, which was a lot sooner than I planned, AND it was sold way above the value we were asking for it. I was and still am very excited and grateful that we were able to find and work with Stewart. I would highly recommend using him whenever the time comes that you need a realtor, it will be a decision that you will not regret.

-Robert G.

“He became a friend throughout the process…”

Stewart Lane is THE best! My husband and I were first time home-buyers trying to find something in our price range and with a decent commute. We found Strub Residential thanks to Yelp and we are so happy we listened to reviews. Stewart was with us every step of the way, giving us tons of information, answering all of MY many, many, many questions and encouraging us when our first house deal fell through. He became a friend throughout the process and even came to our housewarming party. He is top-notch, super knowledgeable and willing to go the extra mile to help you find the home of your dreams! We are so thankful for Stewart!

-Brittany K.

“Stewart’s knowledge of the market and vast experience made his estimates very accurate…”

If we could give Stewart ten stars instead of five, we would! It was amazing working with him, and he was very conscientious and very knowledgeable about where we were in the selling process and where we needed to get to. The details: We were putting a huge, 30-year-old house in Georgetown up for sale, and honestly, we needed a lot of advice. Property values in the area had gone up and a lot of our neighbors had sold their houses, and done some renovations and etc. We had a very specific budget we wanted to meet, and it was important to us that we not overspend on renovating and not get results. Stewart was there right off to answer all of our questions. He gave us really solid advice on what to work on, and what to skip. He came out to check out our progress and handled everything so that all we needed to worry about was the remodel. When we needed a paint person, a tile person, a cleanup person and all that stuff, we checked out the people Stewart recommended, and they all worked out great. They did the work, at budget and on time and did really high-quality work. After open houses and when other realtors came by, Stewart gave us feedback and helped us really fine tune what we needed to change. Stewart’s knowledge of the market and vast experience made his estimates very accurate, so we spent what we wanted to spend and sold the house for what we wanted to get, and best of all it happened in the timeframe Stewart had given us. That kind of experience is really hard to come by and we’ve had experiences, both residential and commercial over the years, with other realtors and we’ve never had as good an experience as we did with Stewart. It’s been almost a year since then (I’m so late writing this review Stewart, I’m sorry!) but the time is sometimes good for reflection, and honestly, we’re still 110% pleased with how smoothly things went. 10/5 stars! – Charles L.

“We had tons of questions, and every time my husband sent an email, he answered each question thoughtfully and thoroughly, providing the data we needed.”

Being new to the area we needed an agent that could help inform us about neighborhoods. We needed detailed data, not only about the neighborhoods but upcoming development and expansion of highways. We also needed an agent that was patient with our questions and would answer them in-depth. And we wanted an agent that could really narrow down the list of homes to what aligned to our criteria. We had been working with another broker at another firm and were extremely frustrated with our experience. So, we took our time interviewing several firms before picking Strüb Residential and Stewart as our agent. Stewart was great for so many reasons. We spent a lot of time upfront going over our list of criteria, and instead of sending us a flood of homes that didn’t meet our criteria, he tailored the homes sent to us, personally filtering them first to ensure we were not overloaded and wasting our time reviewing homes that were not relevant. We had tons of questions, and every time my husband sent an email, he answered each question thoughtfully and thoroughly, providing the data we needed. Throughout the process he was patient and informative. He never pushed us to make an offer on a home, but once we were ready and found the home we wanted, he moved quickly with our offer and ensured everything went smoothly. He kept close contact with the seller’s agent and informed us every step of the way. He’s been a great resource even after we’ve moved in. We are very happy in our dream home, which wouldn’t have happened without Stewart. – Kat K.

“Great experience!”

Great experience! Stewart was a great guide during the buying/selling process!!!!  – Rob T.

“…he blew me away by his ability to accurately predict within $1-2k the houses true value (which was WAY under asking price)…”

Mark and his team, most notably Stewart, are amazing at what they do. I was lucky enough to get a recommendation from a coworker based off the fact that Stewart worked with them for two years before they found a house that was perfect for them. Patience was a key thing for us as we were in no rush, and after a long break in looking, Stewart jumped at the chance to help continue our search. Once we found the perfect house, he blew me away by his ability to accurately predict within $1-2k the houses true value (which was WAY under asking price), then have countless meetings and phone calls to get the deal done. Overall it was a fun, efficient, smart, and successful experience working with Strub and specifically Stewart.  – Alex J.

“I received a personal touch, with the company and Stewart truly invested in my purchase.”

First time home buyer that couldn’t be more pleased with my experience with STRÜB Residential and my agent, Stewart Lane. I received a personal touch, with the company and Stewart truly invested in my purchase. Stewart walked me through the process start to finish. There was never a shortage of homes or recommendations. Within a few weeks, I walked away as a new home buyer and a strong supporter of this organization. If you are looking for a home in the greater Austin area, look no further and trust the people who have been here for a while.  – Cy S.

“…Stewart put in the extra work to make sure I was happy…”

Stewart Lane and STRÜB Residential are the real deal. Their customer service is second to none and they proved time and again they are willing to go the extra mile for their customers. Having gone through most of the home buying process in the middle of my move, Stewart put in the extra work to make sure I was happy and involved in the entire home-buying process. I’d highly recommend Stewart for your home purchasing. You can’t find better folks to do the nitty gritty work in buying a home locally than STRÜB.  – Wayne S.

“I could never had sold my home without him.”

Stewart was very knowledgeable on all aspects for the industry. Very tentative and responsive to my text and emails. I could never had sold my home without him. I would recommend to anyone selling or buyer a home. Thanks Stewart, you Rock!  – Gordon J.

“…we avoided thousands of dollars in repairs…”

Stewart Lane and Strub Residential helped us navigate through the challenges of selling our old house and finding a great new one. Thanks to Stewart’s tenacity and due diligence, we avoided thousands of dollars in repairs that we would have been on the hook for. Can’t recommend Stewart highly enough!  – Trey R.

“His integrity and transparency are present at all times…”

It is such a pleasure to write this review. My husband, Kevin, and I are competing to find the best words to capture our experience with Strüb Residential, and specifically with Stewart Lane, since every aspect of service exceeded our expectations. Kevin has used “phenomenal,” “extraordinary,” and “awesome.” I find myself saying “stellar,” “spectacular,” and “truly remarkable.” Needless to say, we are over-the-moon about our new house/home and how the entire search and purchasing process went. Given Stewart’s expertise and genuine commitment to us, we found ourselves on a smooth and clear path to first-time home ownership, despite the challenge of moving from California and needing to conduct at least 90% of this business remotely. It all started with my internet search, looking for a real estate company that aligned with our values. We prefer working with and supporting local businesses, and it’s even better when we learn of their investment in the community. Strub hit the mark. Once I spoke to Kristina over the phone, and she connected us to Stewart, the bond was cinched. Stewart took the time to learn who we are — our interests, hobbies, values, needs, etc. — so that he could help us find the best home through remote search options. He was (and still is, almost 2 months after closing) extremely accessible by phone, text, and email, for all of our questions, concerns, apprehensions, crazy ideas & requests, and more. We had been renting a tiny house in the Silicon Valley for 23 years (not able to afford the insane housing prices there) and we needed someone with knowledge and patience to help us understand the ins and outs of not only buying a house, but buying a house ~1800 miles away. Stewart’s knowledge and patience are incredibly impressive. He explained every step with an appropriate level of detail (satisfying my highly inquisitive and skeptical software engineer husband isn’t easy). His integrity and transparency are present at all times, and his successful negotiations on our behalf served us well. Stewart consistently gives us great recommendations and helped us make informed decisions for all sorts of things related to the purchase, as well as work that we needed or wanted to do once we bought the house. In a nutshell, we cannot praise Stewart enough. He goes above and beyond with each and every communication and transaction. We remark to one another and to our friends & family that we have been blessed by Stewart’s attention and dedication to our happiness. We honestly have nothing short of new awesome friend in Austin. We are so grateful!  – Heidi K.

“Stewart helped us find what is, honestly, our dream home…”

I can’t recommend Strüb Residential and our Strüb agent – Stewart Lane – highly enough. Stewart happily and patiently guided us through weeks of simultaneously prepping our old home for sale and searching for the perfect new home, never once pushing us towards a property that wasn’t everything we were looking for. Finding a home that would meet the needs of everyone in our household would be a challenge for any realtor (I’m in a wheelchair; my husband’s a mountain climber; our daughter’s a persnickety 4 year old; my father is a persnickety 67 year old) but Stewart helped us find what is, honestly, our dream home – perfect for us and more beautiful than I’d ever hoped for, and for LESS than we were willing to spend! AND he helped us sell our old home for asking price! Strüb and our Strüb agent, Stewart, made the exquisitely stressful ordeal of selling an old house and buying a new house SO much less horrible than it could have been, and helped us find the home of our dreams! If you’re buying or selling (or both) in Austin, THIS is who you need to be working with!  – Martha S.

“He handled all the legwork…”

I worked with Strüb Residential when I bought my Manor, TX home and again when it was time to sell. Stewart Lane was my realtor in both cases. Let me tell you – don’t let Stewart’s young, good looks fool you – he has real estate knowledge in spades! He knows and understands the market, it’s fluctuations, price evaluations, comps, trends and all points in between. He’s advisory when he needs to be and let’s the client make the ultimate decisions. Stewart was always there to answer questions and if he didn’t know something, he’d research it and get an answer back promptly. No guesswork and no confusion. When it was time to find a rental property, not only was he open to suggestion, but open to property finds outside the MLS. He handled all the legwork of speaking with landlord and/or management companies to ensure the homes I reviewed met my needs; especially since I have large dogs. In the end, I found a place very quickly. 10/10 would work with again. – Brent M.

“…helped through the bumps.”

My agent was wonderful! Was very responsive, answered all of my questions, helped through the bumps. I would highly recommend Strüb Residential especially Stewart! – Mary S.

“…over the moon helpful with my house purchase.”

Mark & Stewart were over the moon helpful with my house purchase. The patience over 8 months they showed really let me know they cared about me finding the right house and not just closing the first one we came across. Couldn’t recommend more! – Brent F.

“He was knowledgeable in what to look for…”

When we started looking for a house we figured it would end up being just like the first time, difficult. Five years later, we decided it was time for an upgrade. We were nervous about all the work it was going to take, but we really wanted to move. I looked around and saw all the great reviews for Mark Strüb and his team, I decided to take the chance with them and it was an awesome decision. Mark came out very quickly and looked over our house since we were looking at buying a new house and then selling our old house once we had moved. He gave us some pointers on what we should update or do to the house to help it sell faster. We got a couple lender recommendations and he answered all our questions. We started looking for new houses right away, Mark recommended one of his agents that specializes in North Austin. Here is where our journey with Stewart begins. From the get-go Stewart was responsive to any questions or viewings we want to see. He was interested in knowing what we wanted in a house and probably knew what we wanted more than we did! He was knowledgeable in what to look for that may be “issues” with a house later and what would end up being a money sink or a quick fix. We found an amazing house which ended up getting multiple offers. I highly believe that we were about to get the house due to Stewart and his advice to us when putting the offer in. Then we moved in and started the process to sell our house. This went extremely smooth. We posted our house, sold it, and had the money in our bank in 11 days. I believe that a lot of the improvements (we talked with them about) helped us sell our house that quickly. I can’t imagine having done either the buy or the sell without Stewart and as long as he is still a realtor, I never will! – Jennifer D.

“…continued to answer our plethora of first-time homeowner questions…”

My wife and I bought our first home 3 years ago with the help of Stewart Lane at Strüb Residential, and despite being the largest purchase we’ve ever made, it was by far one of the easiest transactions we’ve ever made because Stewart was holding our hands through the entire process. More importantly, after the closing (and the lovely bottle of champagne that Stewart presented us with), Stewart has continued to answer our plethora of first-time homeowner questions for the past three years without fail, and always with a positive and reassuring attitude. Most notably, we had to make a last-minute move out of state last year, and we of course turned to Strüb Residential and Stewart to help us lease out our condo, and within a week Stewart had found us (wonderful) tenants and had the lease signed and sorted out at lightning speed. If you are looking to buy, sell, rent, or lease any sort of property in the Austin area, you would be very hard pressed to find a better group of people to guide you through the process than Strüb Residential! – Jay H.

“…Stewart was always on top of everything.”

Mark and his team are absolutely wonderful! Stewart was our realtor and his dedication, expertise and super friendly personality made our first home buying experience in Austin wonderful. The whole process was so smooth. We kept waiting for the hiccup, but Stewart was always on top of everything. He constantly communicated with us, explaining and answering any and all questions we had. On home tours, he didn’t just show us the house, he examined it. Making sure to point out anything that might need repair or replacement. He also has a ton of contacts to help you with home warranties, inspections, HVAC and anything else you might need for your home buying journey. We feel we didn’t just get a wonderful realtor but a great friend in Stewart. – Lisa J.

“He showed me the key things to look for in a home…”

Stewart Lane did an awesome job at helping me find the right house.  Being a first-time home buyer, I had no idea what I was doing.  Stew was always available for questions, had same day answers, and worked around my hectic schedule.  He showed me the key things to look for in a home, and was extremely patient.  When it came time to make an offer, he made sure that mine was competitive enough to be selected among 25 other offers!  He was even present for closing.  Thank you Stew.  – Jeremy C.

“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!   -Casey C.

“Stewart was on top of EVERYTHING!”

What can I say about the Strub Team that hasn’t been said already?  The reviews speak for themselves.  I live in California and recently sold an investment property in Round Rock using the Strub Team, specifically Stewart Lane.  At no time during the process did I feel I needed to come out to Texas and oversee the listing.  Stewart was on top of EVERYTHING!  Whether it was greasing the wheels with the current tenant, organizing repairs and upgrades, or responding to the unexpected “the alarm is going off and it won’t stop” call, Stewart had it covered.  Without hesitation, I would recommend these guys for your next listing…keep up the great work! -Brian A.

“He provided great input and looked out for our best interests…”

Let me start with the results of working with Stewart Lane of the StrÜb Residential team. He helped us locate and secure the home of our dreams in a relatively short timeframe. What else could we ask for? The house fits our lifestyle and is in an area of Austin that has the amenities we want. Stewart is extremely knowledgeable about the market. He was highly engaged during the process of finding and buying the home. He provided great input and looked out for our best interests during each phase of the home purchase.  We recommend Stewart highly.  We will most certainly engage him again in any real estate transaction…great work  Stewart!!!   …..Your efforts and skills secured the home we wanted….  – Bernie O.

…professional and knew exactly what he was doing.”

To put it simply, Stewart is a scholar and a gentleman! Of all the apartment locators I contacted, Stew was the only one who responded the same day and really listened to our preferences and requirements (one of us had a broken lease on their record, and we have a bully breed pup). I felt totally taken care of while we discussed things over the phone and email. After hearing all our specifications fully, he built us a list of potential places for us to browse through and pick our favorites. I have had other locators do this same task using the same program, but all other lists I received were full of apartments that were clearly the OPPOSITE of what we required. Not so with the Stewart-crafted lists. So many of them were spot on, we had trouble narrowing down to just a few that we were going to visit. He met us promptly at each specified location, introduced us to the office people, and walked with us on the tours. He was so gracious with his time, and listened to us blabber about what we liked and didn’t like about each place. He knew each apartment’s prices and restrictions and helped us deliberate. It was like he was as invested in finding us the perfect apartment as we were! Eventually we found it. It was (and is) perfect: Stew found a place that was lenient with rental history (there were NO extra fees because of the old broken lease) and allowed ALL dog breeds, so we didn’t have to attempt to pass off the little guy as a “mix.” A few months later, we received a rebate check from him! Overall the experience was better than I could have hoped for. Not only is he excellent at his job, but he is one of the coolest people, and we totally clicked. It was like having a really good friend help us hunt for apartments, and it was just a bonus that he was a professional and knew exactly what he was doing. To top all of the amazingness off, we didn’t have to pay for a thing! He gets payed by the complex when we sign the lease. Needless to say, I would be happy to pay for his services if the situation was as such. Even though our apartment is perfect in pretty much every way, we are dreaming of a bigger place (and hopefully a little yard!), so the next time we are ready to move, Stew is the first person I’ll be calling! -Lorian E.
