Are You Considering Relocating to Austin, Texas? An Open Letter

Dear Potential Austin Home Buyer,

Austin is a beautiful and eclectic town with an optimistic and youthful spirit.  I can understand why you would like to live here with us.  I was born and raised in Dallas, but I have lived here for over 22 years now.

If you are considering relocating to the Austin, Texas area, I would love the opportunity to help you find the right home.  I don't normally write "look at me" articles in my blog, but I realized that not doing so might actually be a disservice to relocating buyers who are unfamiliar with Austin.

I have been selling real estate full-time in the Austin area and the surrounding towns since early 1997, and I have sold homes in almost every single MLS area that we have in our system (there are a LOT of them).  My agents and I are able to assist you with ANY type of home or multifamily property that you are interested in purchasing.

Over the past couple of years, I have personally represented home buyers from $62,500 to $3.4 million.  I handle homes, condos, townhomes, downtown lofts, ranches, duplexes, fourplexes, and more. 

I have never had a complaint with the Texas Real Estate Commission against me or any of the agents who work for me.  I have never been involved in a mediation or a lawsuit in well over a decade of high-volume real estate practice, which is saying a lot in this day and age. 

I am known among my peers and past clients as an honest broker/agent.  There are certainly others who have sold more homes than I have, but you would be hard-pressed to find an agent with more integrity than me.  I would rather talk you out of a home purchase or an offer on your home than to assist you in making a bad decision.

I haven't yet had a client that I couldn't get along with (please don't feel the need to test this, however).  The same goes for other agents, although I have certainly had my share of challenges. 

I am a devoted husband of seventeen years and a doting father of four terrific kids (one son, three daughters).  If you're nice to me, I might even show you some pictures or let you meet them while you're here in town. :-)  I'll even take you to lunch if you like.

I have heard many potential Austin buyers say to me, "I haven't really had a good experience with agents before."  Truly, I've had plenty of bad experiences with agents, too, and I am in the business!

When you get right down to it, I want your business and I am not afraid to ask for it.  Why not give me a call and let me earn it?  I hope to hear from you sometime soon!  I can assure you that you will not be disappointed.  In fact, you might just make a new friend.

You can call me at 512-796-7653 (cell) or email me at jason@austintexashomes.com.  Thanks for taking a minute to read this post!

A nice warm Texas welcome to a great city, Jason.  Austin would be at the top of my list, if I consider Texas in my future.  I have a good friend who owns a real estate company in Austin (Jackie Clark), but you're winning me over.

You, and I, are one of the few agents in the country with buyers.  Austin, ranked as one of the top markets followed by my market.  As I mentioned earlier - my client - Amelia and her parents will be relocating to the Triangle and they need a little push.

I hope you knocked on some wood with that "never" you wrote in front of the words mediation and lawsuit...   Just kidding, well, sort of. 

Austin looks like a beautiful city, hopefully I'll see it sometime.

Jason, this is an excellent letter to people considering relocating to Austin.  Posting it on your blog is a much more efficient way of spreading the word than randomly stuffing envelopes and mailing this letter to everyone who lives outside of Austin, TX.

Austin is a great city. The music scene is vibrant and the capital area very picturesque. I went to a convention there once and I hope to go again.
