Barbara DeBow


Barbara DeBow is an experienced agent with a background in residential real estate, commercial real estate, investment properties, and property management. Her skills include clear and concise communication, strong negotiation skills, excellent spatial/design vision, as well as a familiarity with construction and project management. Her love of architecture and design allows her to help her clients envision the potential a property may have and she brings energy and knowledge when working with clients to reach their goals. Whether it is first-time buyers purchasing their dream home, empty nesters looking to downsize, an investor purchasing an investment property, or folks lucky enough to be relocating to Austin, Barbara can offer a full range of services to assist her clients. 

Barbara began her career in real estate in 2006. Prior to that, she was a licensed cosmetologist and enjoyed 23 years of providing service to her clients. She learned early in her career the value of customer service and listening carefully to what the client’s wants and needs are and those skills translate to assisting her clients with their real estate transactions today.

Being a resident of Austin since 1980, Barbara is very familiar with Austin and the unique personalities of neighborhoods, having lived throughout the city over the years. Now a resident in Deep Eddy, you can find her on her daily walks around Town Lake (aka Lady Bird Lake for the newcomers!) with her dog Roxanne. She also enjoys the amazing restaurants Austin has to offer, the live music scene, the arts, or simply hanging out on the great lawn at Zilker Park.

Austin is a charitable and giving city and Barbara enjoys being a part of such a generous community. Some of her favorite charities to be involved with are SAFE (formerly Safe Place and Austin Children’s Shelter), Habitat for Humanity and Austin Parks Foundation.

My wife and I recently worked with Barbara DeBow to find a new home and had an excellent experience with her and Realty Austin. Firstly, Barbara is a smart, funny, outgoing person. I believe that having a good relationship with your agent is a big plus, and I'm sure we will remain friends with Barbara long after our transaction. Barbara worked very well with the other agents and is very straightforward with negotiations, and her communication with all parties is exemplary. She will go above and beyond for her clients; I highly recommend her.

Barbara’s attention to detail and knowledge of the Austin market helped us find our forever home. Now it’s time to talk lake house! Do yourself a favor and call Barbara.

I just bought my first house ever (it's in south Austin) and Barbara was great! We came along a few bumps in the road (some situations that even she hadn't experienced despite her many years in the business), and she helped me navigate them in a patient, professional manner. I recommend her 100%

Barbara came highly recommended from a close friend, and we couldn't be happier with the professionalism, attentiveness, and experience she provided us. We were moving from out-of-state and Barbara spent a weekend showing us houses. We didn't find the right house for us on that trip, but she got a good sense of what we were looking for and helped us find the perfect house after we left Austin.

When my wife and I decided to buy our first house, Barbara DeBow was recommended to us by a friend. Barbara was patient, extremely knowledgeable, easy to reach, prompt to reply, and unbelievably cheerful and pleasant to work with. She made a very scary process seem manageable and survivable, and we were lucky to have her help every step of the way. We cannot recommend her highly enough!

Barb has been my realtor for two homes (and helped me find a rental home in between homes). She is super professional and thorough. She does excellent research when you are selling and buying, and provides smart guidance and decision-making. Her closings have been nothing but smooth and easy; she makes sure that there are no surprises. She also recommends respected and reliable lenders and contractors.

Barbara made our house hunting process fun by taking the time to understand what we were looking for in a home. She is professional and extremely knowledgeable about the competitive Austin market. Her communication skills are excellent with a quick response time to our questions and requests to view homes. I highly recommend Barbara whether you are purchasing your first home or an investment property. She's the BEST!
