Barrett hails from Conroe, TX, a land of tall pines and warm hospitality. He moved to Austin to attend the University of Texas, where he earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in economics with a minor in sociology. Barrett began his post-grad career as an educator specializing in teaching math to middle school students with dyslexia.

Barrett met his beautiful wife, Kristen, at a coffee shop where they both worked during college. If you keep an eye out, you will spot the active couple hauling their three kids all over town in their trusty bike trailer. As a long-time bike commuter and sixth-generation Austinite, Barrett has an extensive knowledge of the city and a passion for helping people enjoy it.

While teaching at a local private school, Barrett’s middle son suffered heart failure as a newborn and required major heart surgery (He’s OK now!). Saddled with crippling medical debt, the Ravens had to figure something out. So, Barrett acquired his real estate license intending to pursue home sales as a side job to help give some much-needed financial relief to his family. However, he had no idea that he would LOVE helping his clients so much. After a year and a half of working two jobs - teaching and real estate sales - Barrett decided to quit his teaching job and jump into the deep end of the real estate pool! Whether purchasing or selling a home, he pursues nothing but excellence while shepherding his clients through every transaction.

In addition to various fitness activities, Barrett has a huge passion for music. He played guitar and sang in a couple of rock/punk bands growing up and loves helping others feast on the musical catalogs of his favorite artists and bands. These days - apart from filling in on guitar or drums at his church - Barrett’s primary musical audience is his children.

Barrett’s background in customer service and education directly contributes to his ability to provide his clients with a five-star experience. He believes that knowledge and patience, as well as integrity, are a must in this industry. Therefore, Barrett is a valuable and trustworthy asset to have during your next real estate adventure!

I cannot say enough good about Barrett Raven of Realty Austin! We engaged him to represent us spur of the moment when we stumbled upon our dream home. Since then Barrett has gone above and beyond in helping us get to closing, and the team at Realty Austin made the experience as smooth and streamlined as possible. They were on top of everything, ensuring that nothing slipped through the cracks. Now Barrett is helping us get our first home ready to sell. His presentation for listing our first home was comprehensive and professional. The way he broke down how he determined our listing price gave us complete confidence in it and him. He takes the time to walk you through every step of buying and selling a home, he's accessible, personable, and he makes the whole experience as fun as possible. If you are buying and/or selling a home, you MUST go with Barrett Raven and Realty Austin.

Barrett has been a long time friend of Sarah and me so deciding to use him was a no brainer. We knew he always looks out for others so we trusted he would do the same in the home buying process. He did not disappoint! From our first meeting just talking about the possibility of buying to viewing homes to signing, he was beyond helpful and made us feel incredibly comfortable.

My favorite thing that Barrett did was explain to us the next 1 or 2 steps we needed to take care of and then once we had finished those he would walk us through the next few. Buying a home requires a lot of work/anxiety, and this helped keep us calm and on top of each piece.

We would absolutely recommend him to any of our friends/family - no questions asked!

Barrett was AMAZING!! We knew Barrett personally prior to hiring him as our realtor and knowing how ethical and thorough he is made our decision to hire him a no-brainer. He takes his job very seriously and does such a great job of staying up-to-date on everything realty-related. I would absolutely recommend him to anyone! He was so knowledgeable and able to answer our million questions about buying a home without ever once making us feel like we were asking too many questions or being too demanding. I hate having to ask questions, but Barrett made us feel so at ease that I felt comfortable telling him when I had no idea what different realty terms meant or when I needed more clarification. We felt very informed about the entire home buying process and have even been able to help some of our friends through the process with the knowledge we gained from Barrett.

Great service! I strongly recommend for your realty needs. They offer professional advice and have a proven process to get your home ready to sell that caters to the sellers current situation. Once the process gets rolling Barrett holds your hand throughout and is prompt in answering any questions or addressing concerns you may have. Strongly recommend!

We can't recommend Barrett Raven highly enough! 5 stars? Try 10! Barrett helped us find our rental property a year and a half ago and then just helped us buy our first home. He made the process of home buying fun and encouraging. Anytime we felt stressed or nervous Barrett and his team were there to answer questions or to simply reassure us. We would use them again in a heartbeat.

Barrett really stayed on top of things for us during the sale of our Austin house! He was very good at communicating with us before each step of the process. We would recommend him to anyone buying or selling in the Austin area!

James Timmons

Barrett Raven went above and beyond in exhibiting outstanding, honest and helpful service. I would recommend him to anyone needing real estate services in Austin.

We had a great experience buying our first home with Barrett Raven. He made sure we knew what to expect and did a great job making us feel comfortable throughout the whole process. He's a laid back guy, yet really went the extra mile for us so many times by calling the listing agents for homes and crunching serious numbers on market data. Even though we didn't know him beforehand, he felt like a long time friend by the time we closed on the house. I couldn't recommend him enough!
