Art, Jessi, Anastasia, and everyone we've interacted with at Realty Austin has been kind, professional, and informative and has helped make the complicated process of buying a home as smooth as possible. I would recommend them to anyone!

Honest, patient, and highly experienced, Art has guided us through the purchase process with the utmost integrity - we trust him implicitly.

Not only was Art with us in the beginning (at least 9 mos ago), helping us to find the right properties, but he's been fundamental to our ability to find the right lenders, inspectors, contractors, and more. With my partner traveling internationally frequently, I really depended on Art (still do) to help me understand the details and pitfalls I would otherwise miss on my own.

In short, Art is a one-stop-shop! :)

Jessi was entirely responsive and helpful, providing numerous options, and always found a way to accommodate our unpredictable schedules (as did Art). Her perspective was on-point, and we always felt like we were her only clients (we're not). ;)

Thanks, Team! It's a pleasure working with you, and I couldn't recommend you more.

Art and Jessi were a pleasure to work with. Considering that I was in and out of state to purchase and browse homes, they worked well with me and my schedule. They were super patient because I am a worry-wort. Also, I closed on a home and was not going to be there at closing, so it really helped that I could trust Art & Jessi to give me the real deal. The true low-down. I asked many questions and had to overcome a huge learning curve with buying my first home, and Art & Jessi were fantastic answering all of my questions and being available with a prompt response time.

We had a very positive experience with Art Fonseca. We have purchased three homes in our lifetime, and now two ranch properties. In all our experiences with Realtors, we found Art to be the best one. He was thoughtful and guided us when we asked for guidance. He was available and showed us all the properties we wished to see. He understood our needs and provided a broader inventory of those choices. We did not feel rushed or pushed in any specific direction. He and his staff found a Realtor to help us sell our property in Milam county. That Realtor was helpful, and Art also helped us understand terminology and conditions when selling our property. We found Art to be very knowledgeable of the properties in the Austin area as well as surrounding areas. This was a huge plus for us. He was also extremely helpful in guiding us through the purchase process and kept us informed every step of the way. We attribute our smooth purchasing process to Art and his shepherding of the process. We are very appreciative of his professionalism, kindness, and thoughtful consideration of our needs. We are very pleased with our purchase, and we feel we bought it for a fair price. We will happily recommend Art to anyone selling or buying property in Austin and the surrounding areas. Most important of all, we trusted Art, and that is huge for us.

Art Fonseca, of Realty Austin has been indispensable in regards to my recent property purchase. After meeting and providing Art with my criteria, Art hunted and found the perfect property. In addition, Art provided invaluable advice and support with all details surrounding buying a property, including explaining all of the industry jargon, confusing documents and closing process. I'm planning on renting the property out. Art once again has been a great support. His industry knowledge is second to none. I'd recommend Art to anyone wanting to purchase.

Art Fonseca did a great job on my condo sale. He knew just how to stage and photograph for maximum potential. His team is top-notch. I highly recommend Art to others.

Art and Jessi were there every step of the way, which was ridiculously helpful for a first time home buyer. I always felt they had my best interest in mind and that meant a lot.

I moved from Arizona to Round Rock, Texas. My real estate adventure was with Art Fonseca and his assistant, Jessi Timmons.  They were both excellent people to work with. We did a live chat before I came to Texas, and Art explained the buying process for Texas to me in detail. When I arrived in Texas Jessi spent the day showing me the houses I was most interested in. We narrowed the homes down and started the purchasing process. When the mortgage process bogged down, it was Art who got things back on track. When it came to the closing, I was surprised to see Art at the final signing. I have purchased homes in Arizona, Oregon, and now, Texas. I can honestly say this was the best real estate team I have ever worked with. Art truly cares about his clients and making sure that the job is done with the best interest of the client in mind.

Art and Jessi were a pleasure to work with. They were extremely detail-oriented even from the beginning and answered all of our questions as we had them! It was really an amazing first home buying experience!

Art and Jessi were there to help every step of the way. Super helpful but most importantly honest and caring about my experience in buying my first out of state property. I never felt like I was being pushed to just buy any property and they were always ready to help answer any questions or concerns I had

We will definitely recommend Art to our friends. Dave and I were pleased with his responsiveness, organization and work ethic. Art represents Realty Austin very well!

Art Fonseca has been an absolute joy to work with while purchasing our home here in Texas. We are California transplants. Art educated us regarding all the nuances of purchasing a home in Texas. He listened to our requests. He protected us from the possible pitfalls of the closing process. He never gave up on us while we sold our house in California. Art is a person of high integrity, moral values, and work ethic. We are truly grateful for our experience with Art Fonseca.

The Realty Austin team was absolutely outstanding! Art and his team went above and beyond to make our purchase fantastic. We had an issue with the previous resident and Art went out of his way to make everything right with our move. I would highly recommend Art and his team to anyone looking for a great home buying experience.

Art was helpful, informative, honest, and very dedicated to helping my wife, daughter, and I find the perfect home for our needs. He is always professional and yet still manages to feel like a friend every time you are around him. He is extremely patient during the home shopping process which truly removed a lot of the stress from that situation. My wife and I, both, loved our experience with Art Fonseca. I will use him when I'm ready to sell as well as when we're ready to grow into a bigger home. I can't recommend him enough.

Taylor Harris

Art was awesome. He was always there when we needed him to look at a house with us or for us. We were five hours away in West Texas. Art was always willing to meet us anytime. And his assistant, Jessi Timmons, is awesome also. I actually got to meet her before I met Art and that girl rocks! She was with me throughout the entire ordeal. I recommend Art and his assistant Jessi.

Donal Mitchell

Art and his assistant Jessi are a power team! They answered all of my questions, listened to my concerns, and were kind throughout the whole process! They showed up on move-in day to wish me well and make sure I was settling in. I appreciate Art and Jessi so much, and I am looking forward to working with them again!

We had the opportunity to work with Art Fonseca at Realty Austin. With his background and experience, he was incredibly knowledgeable, and he made himself available anytime we had a question or needed information. He went above and beyond to communicate with us about all the details every step of the way. Art and his team advocated for us and helped to connect us with other services that we needed as we made the purchase of our first home. Everyone that we came in contact with through Art was more than exceptional. We felt so taken care of throughout the entire process. We would recommend Art and his team over and over again. Again, we are so thankful for them.

We are first time home buyers in the crazy real estate market that is Austin, Texas! Our home buying experience with Art Fonseca was so wonderful! He explained everything in detail, gave us his genuine recommendations, and made sure we felt comfortable and understood everything before moving forward. Art has extensive knowledge of the market, great organization, and just a genuinely fun person to be around! I would recommend Realty Austin to anyone, but I would rave about Art to everybody!

I’d like to start off by saying that Art by far exceeded our expectations. He’s top notch and a class act. He was able to completely understand what we were looking for, took the time to understand what we were after, and went to locations to make many videos, from many locations, so that we could see them from here in California. Art has been on top of everything going on during the escrow/closing period. He answered all our questions and curiosities during the process. I’ve already recommended him to a fellow employee who is potentially looking to invest in property in the Austin area and I will continue to refer Art to anybody I know. We truly appreciate what he has done for us. Some might say “well that’s his job”, but he went well above in our opinion. Again, I can’t express how happy and beyond satisfied we are with Art’s performance. TOP NOTCH! Thank you, Art, for finding our home and sticking with us from such a far distance. We are truly appreciative.

We were VERY pleased with Art, and I am so glad that we chose him to represent us. He went way above and beyond our expectations. If we had to do this all over again, there would be nobody else that we would choose except for him. I will highly recommend him to anybody. Art is by far the BEST in our eyes. We came into this "buying a house" project blinded I shall say, and he was generous enough to walk us through the process. Art is a very helpful man who was always there when we had a question and very easy to get a hold of.

Being self-employed, we believe that repeat customers are the best testimony of all. Like Art’s world, ours is one that creates customers that may only need you every 10 or so years. When a customer calls you back after years and uses your services again, that means that they were not only comfortable with your services but often, after that long, it means they sought you out again. Even though Art moved from one broker to another, it was his services that made the difference with us. He goes above and beyond. In our most recent sale of my mom’s house, he had to make multiple trips to Wimberly, had to clean-up paperwork done incorrectly by the other agent, and even removed a dead deer from the backyard. I can’t promise he will do the road-kill removal from everyone’s property, but to keep me from having to make the 3-hour round trip, he took care of even that. When I changed my closing time without even consulting him, he rolled with it, rearranged his schedule and was gracious through it all. We are the test of any agent, and he handles it all with courtesy. I am happy to recommend Art to anyone looking to sell or buy a home.

We recently used Art Fonseca with Realty Austin to purchase a rental home. Art was exceptional and professional! Answered all of our questions and made himself available at our convenience to show houses to us. Art was on top of every step in the process and proactive in working with our lender, so there were no surprises.

I honestly cannot say enough about how happy we are to have chosen Art Fonseca to be our Realtor. I had no idea how much time and effort goes into selling a home, and Art made the entire process seem almost effortless. We initially tried to sell our house ourselves and quickly realized we were in over our heads. Art even went above and beyond to help ensure the buying of our home in another state, went smoothly as well. I will undoubtedly recommend Art to any and all friends I come across needing to buy or sell their home in the Austin area. Simply said, Art is AWESOME!

Kristen Shurtz

Art Fonseca and his team at Realty Austin made selling our home from long distance a breeze! Art surrounds himself with an excellent supporting staff, always listens and is most diligent. He managed to make selling our home from 300 miles away seem effortless, he is truly a 'stand up, go the extra mile' kind of guy, many thanks!!

Art Fonseca was our Realtor, friend and"hand-holder" throughout our whole house hunting experience. He was always very professional and so prompt with texts and emails. He realized our criteria early on and ultimately found our house in Bastrop. All went well all through closing due to Art's coordination. Thank you, Art and Realty Austin.

Our time working with Art was nothing short of amazing. We ran into several roadblocks due to unavoidable circumstances during our home buying process, and Art was always there to help. I cannot say enough good things about our time working with Art. He will be our go-to for real estate in the area in the future, and we will be recommending him to others any time the opportunity arises. We had such a great experience working with Art that he is my first and only choice to handle my recently widowed mother's real estate needs. Art's hard work and dedication to his clients made us feel at every turn that we were his first and only priority, even though we were aware he had several other clients that we are sure he was treated just as well along the way.

We want to make sure that we show as much appreciation as we possibly can to our Realtor, Art Fonseca. He helped us every step of the way and even more when we were out doing our own thing thinking we were set. He made sure all the ducks were in a row for us and always put our wants and needs first. I couldn't think of any other individual we would have rather had in our corner than Art when it came down to the negotiations with the builder. He was superb, and we will encourage future sellers/buyers to consider him for their real estate needs.

Laura and I had a wonderful experience with Art. He was always available (literally, ALWAYS) and willing to talk. He spent a lot of time talking with Laura and helping her find exactly the type of house she wanted. Almost daily he was sending us new listings, and when she found the ones she liked, he spent the 30 minutes+ doing video walk-throughs of them for us, as I wasn't able to get away from work to see the house myself. He did a great job of walking us through and preparing us for the entire process of making an offer and actually getting the home. He reached many times with my mortgage lender as well, to ensure that everything went smoothly. In short, we were very happy with Art.

Paul M. Evans

Art is an awesome individual and agent. Always prompt, honest, patient and trustworthy. He made it possible for us to have a home instead of renting. I will recommend him to everyone I meet who is looking to buy a home. In fact, I have two friends who are looking for a home, and I will for sure give them Art's contact info!

David Sanchez

I am over the moon happy with my very first home and amazed at how smooth the whole process was. Art Fonseca was so patient and helped to guide me in the right direction every step of the way. Art and Realty Austin made the process of buying a home easier than renting. Art is truly a great agent and I recommended him and his team 100%!

Christel Key

I can't recommend Art enough. Art was excellent to work with, and his knowledge of the area really helped us in our home search.

Art was very patient with us, as we took a while to get our old home sold up in OKC. During that time he remained in contact and always kept working with us to help in our new home search. He was always accessible and quick in his returned communications.

Because of Art's attention to detail and thorough knowledge of the entire process, I felt at ease in my home buying decision, and never once felt like I was unsure of what was going on, or being pushed into a decision.

Chad Cluver

Art is the best Realtor I have ever worked with. He goes so far above and beyond other realtors, that I won't work with anyone else.

Jody Gibbs

Art goes above and beyond! Would not have trusted anyone else. As a remote buyer, he really made a very challenging process painless.

Janean Bowen

I was referred to Art Fonseca by a good friend of mine who used him to buy her own home. When I decided to embark on my own house search, she could not recommend him highly enough.

As a first time home buyer, he had to explain a lot of the process to me and guide me through it. I appreciated his help and feedback which gave me ability to buy with confidence. I really liked that Art was easy to contact and made everything go smoothly. To me, this is an important area because of all the stress involved in purchasing a new home.

Thank you, Art!

Matt Seigel

Art works hard to really understand his client and their needs and lifestyle. We spent a full day touring homes and he saved the best for last - he knew it was the perfect home for me. He knew the town and the house that I would want to live in. I look to Art for guidance in every aspect of my personal and investment properties in the Austin area.
