Relocation Clients

We've helped hundreds of clients relocate to Austin from around the United States (and some from around the world!) While the buying process is generally the same, we understand the unique challenges you face when both relocating & purchasing. Everyone's search is unique, but we generally recommend the following:

Plan at Least Two Trips

While we've successfully helped clients purchase a home on a single trip, we've found that an initial "scouting trip" helps you identify which neighborhood(s) you really want to focus on. A follow-up trip where the focus is to find your new home is much less stressful & more beneficial because you've already picked out where you want to live, so you just have to pick out your house.

Close Remotely on Your New Home Before You Move

Moving is stressful enough. Arriving in town w/ a full truck, closing, funding, collecting your keys, and then directing your movers in one day is even more stressful. We can set up a remote closing for you wherever you would like (a notary comes to you to close the day before funding.) We'll perform your final walk through for you & are happy to video chat or send a video walk through so that you're confident the property is in good shape.

Consider Making an Offer Site Unseen

If you've made a couple of trips to Austin & haven't found "the one" then we can preview homes & upload walk-through videos on properties you're interested in. If the property looks great, you can make an offer & put it under contract prior to flying to Austin to confirm it's "the one." Bear in mind that you will have a 7-10 day option period during which your earnest money is protected, so the risk is a $200-$500 option fee + a plane ticket. If you don't like the house, you can terminate the contract.

Have a Backup Plan

It reduces a lot of stress on your trip if you have a Plan B. If you don't find your home on your trip, this could mean another trip, or considering making an offer site unseen. A last resort is always a short term rental, which isn't ideal, but does allow you plenty of time to search & make your decision after the move. Regardless of what your backup plan is, simply having one will reduce your stress levels enormously.

We would love to help you with your relocation.

My wife and I relocated to Austin from the east coast and didn't know a realtor in town, so looked online. We called a few different people and really seemed to click with Eric. He knows Austin very well, which is what we really cared about, since we knew little about the various Austin neighborhoods.…

Eric is such a fantastic realtor! I had a distressed home to sell and Eric gave me the advice I needed to list it at a price that would sell. His suggested price was right on, and the house sold in a week! Eric was always available and replied quickly to all of our questions.…

My wife and I found Eric online in 2011 when we were considering moving to Austin. Eric was very helpful showing around various neighborhoods during my business trips that made my decision to move to Austin easier. Unlike most agents, Eric also helped us find an apartment for around 6 months so that we could…
