Brandon is a third generation, native Austinite and life-long Central Austin resident.  His roots in Texas and Austin run deep.  Brandon’s business philosophy and mission is very simple: “Treat people right and give them the best possible service in the industry.”

Giving people the best possible service comes naturally for Brandon.  He grew up in a small family owned business where he learned about customer service and hard work.  He carried those ethics with him to The University of Texas where he started his own business selling educational books and software directly to families while attending school.  

After graduating from the University of Texas going into the real estate business was a natural fit.  With extensive knowledge of the local real estate market, a love for Austin and a passion for sales and service Brandon brings a unique skill set to the business and his clients.

After six years at another Austin Real Estate firm Brandon joined Realty Austin in 2011 because of their unparalleled technology, market presence, and drive to serve their clients.   

When Brandon is not busy working to serve his clients you may find him enjoying the city he loves by paddle boarding or fishing on Town Lake with his two boys and wife of 15 years, Lynda. During football season you will find him on the football field where he volunteers as a head coach for the Austin Pop Warner Youth Football Organization and in the spring as coach for The Austin Striders Track Club. Brandon believes that investing in the youth of this City and building leaders at a young age will ensure Austin is a great place to live well into the future.

Brandon was excellent to work with, and I would definitely recommend him to friends or anyone in need of a realtor. That is not, of course, a true statement for everyone I have worked with over the years on various things. I had been in Austin for over 11 years and had contemplated buying a house off and on. Brandon was always ready to help and always followed up with me. It was always the right amount of following up; never in a pushy way. It was always clear that the goal was to help me find something I wanted to buy (if I decided I did want to buy as opposed to renting) not simply to get me to buy something. And that always struck me as genuine on his part. I felt comfortable with him handling all aspects of the home buying experience. When we were negotiating with the sellers, we talked about what we would ask for, but I felt comfortable with Brandon handling the negotiations and explaining our position to the sellers in whatever way he thought best. I felt that he knew better than me how to handle the situation and completely deferred to him. That is just one example of many. Brandon also would follow up with those involved on my behalf. For example, I had everything turned into the lender but still had not received final approval to close. Brandon reached out to them. I wanted a spare piece of the tile from the house so I could try to match it to other flooring I would be installing after closing but before the move. Brandon obtained the piece of tile from the seller and then met me so he could give it to me. Different things would pop up that Brandon would just take care of. I told my friends at work I would miss him! Things ran so smoothly with Brandon just taking care of things. He was always pleasant, punctual and those kind of things. But I also think that he has qualities that not everyone in the industry has. And based on my experience he has made the very short list of people that I would recommend to others.

We worked with Brandon Faught in buying our property. He is an amazing agent, definitely one of the best in town. He made our experience very stress free. We would highly recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell in the Austin and surrounding area. Brandon is very knowledgeable and professional realtor!

What we saw in Brandon was a caring person who was never too busy to talk with us and help us along the process of getting our home. We felt blessed to have him with us on this journey. Brandon displayed honesty and integrity, and those attributes are hard to come by in this day and age. He represented Realty Austin very well, and we would recommend him to anyone looking to buy a home. Brandon, we consider you a friend and may the Lord bless you always.

We met Brandon when we called his number on a for sale sign in our neighborhood. How God knew Brandon would be right person for us! From day one Brandon was professional, caring and knowledgeable. His sense of humor and honesty need to be added to his list of attributes. I am a first time home buyer and if Brandon hadn't taken us under his wing and assured us everything would be alright, I would have given up. What an asset he is to Realty Austin. He did so many favors for us and took the time to explain every aspect of buying our home. He was never too busy for us and far exceeded our expectations. He is now our friend and I will refer clients to him. It is such a comfort to know Brandon cares about his clients. Over a month ago he was a stranger and now he is someone special.

I have always had a great relationship with Brandon due to his ability to serve us so exceptionally well. This is the second home I purchased with Brandon, and he seems to always get us into the right home with no issues. Nothing is missed on his end from ensuring a smooth closing, and he has always been available to assist us with any questions we may have through the process. Brandon always goes the extra mile when serving as our agent. While I personally have close friends that are also real estate agents that I could have gone with, Brandon is my go-to agent, because I trust his experience and his ability to do what it takes to ensure we get in the home that meets our needs with our best interests in mind. I couldn't have had a better experience.

Back in February or March of last year (2016), we were still living in Canada and surfing home listings in the Austin area. We happened upon a listing by Realty Austin. After we requested additional information Brandon reached out very quickly and initiated a dialog about what we were up to, what our timeline was, and what we were looking for. From the beginning, Brandon was very personable and we felt very comfortable communicating with him. We had other agents reach out to us within the following days/weeks, but felt that Brandon was still the one that we felt most comfortable working with.

Initially, Brandon provided his insights on areas around Austin for us to look at without ever actually pushing to represent us -- though I am sure he was hoping it would turn out that way :). His interest in simply helping seemed quite genuine. We had also read reviews on Brandon and were further comforted by the positivity that was expressed.

When it came time for my wife and I to make a house-hunting trip, we provided Brandon with our schedule, guidelines to what we were interested, and the general location (by this time we had a good idea of what school district we wanted our daughter to be in). Brandon made sure to allocate a significant amount of time to show us around as we had limited time in Austin. Since our move was still several months out, and since offer-to-close timelines are evidently much shorter in Austin than in Toronto, Brandon steered us toward new home construction feeling that if we didn't find anything we liked, we would look into resales at a later time when the timeline made more sense.

The last home we owned was a new home construction at the time of purchase, so we were warm to the idea. Still, being from Canada, we felt that having Brandon working with us would help us to better navigate the differences between Canada/Ontario and US/Texas real estate transactions. Little did we know at the time just how important it would be to have Brandon in our corner.

When we finally found a builder with a product that we truly liked (Brandon found us two excellent options that we had to wrestle with to decide out path), Brandon lent his eyes to all of the documentation and agreements that we exchanged with the builder. We are very grateful for that assistance. After some initial angst about acquiring financing (have no US credit history/score), our build process got underway while we were still in Canada waiting to relocate to the Austin area. Brandon graciously agreed to look in on the home for us while we were waiting to relocate. Through the summer and early fall, things seemed to be going swimmingly. Brandon checked in regularly, but it was not until mid-fall when all hell broke loose. First, the management at our builder had a changeover, and the house appraisal that was returned to our lender was so low, it rendered our purchase unworkable -- despite Brandon attempting to work with the appraiser, on our behalf, to provide information needed by the appraiser for their assessment.

Whilst we were in the midst of freaking out at this turn of events (which Brandon had foreshadowed), Brandon was working on a game-plan and talking us through options and strategies. He readily volunteered to speak to lenders (we began pursuing multiple paths) as well as our builder, acting as a liaison and keeping the communication flowing as well as possible under the circumstances. Despite the increasingly ornery and threatening attitude being displayed by our builder, Brandon continued to help us work the strategies, played a huge part in keeping communication flowing, and pushing back on the builder on our behalf.

In the end, we managed to cross the finish line and close on our beautiful new home. Without Brandon's assistance, I am not certain that we would have gotten to that point. Our particular situation was certainly not run-of-the-mill, but Brandon stepped up to the challenge of holding his hand on the rudder of the ship we had set sailing. The amount of stress that Brandon lifted off of our shoulders was incredible.

We will be ever thankful to have met Brandon, and for our making the decision to work with him. Even though ours was a new-build, having Brandon in our court allowed us to keep our sanity when our situation took a rapid turn (further) south.

Had a great experience with Brandon Faught in selling my home. Brandon is a solid professional and made the experience easy and pleasant. He was recommended to me by a friend years ago and at that time I wasn't ready to sell. I made initial contact with him and he took the time to explain what the procedures would be when I was ready to sell. Was impressed by his professional attitude and knowledge, so years later when I was ready, I contacted Brandon again to be my agent. Was not disappointed! He is very knowledgeable and responded to my questions quickly and took care of problems as they came up. Would highly recommend him. Thanks so much!

I worked with Brandon Faught to both sell my old home, and purchase my new one. Throughout both processes Brandon provided great insight, and helped make the decision process easier when it came to negotiation tactics, and pricing. Thanks to Brandon we closed yesterday on our old house and were close to our asking price.

This is the third time that I have worked with Brandon Faught, once in buying and twice in selling a home. All of these experiences were exceptionally positive. He is exceedingly knowledgeable about all aspects of real estate and the ever-changing Austin market. Because I trusted his deep understanding of the volatility of the Austin market, I made a different set of decisions about the home that I just recently sold than I would have made on my own. I did less work on the house than I had intended and then listed it for more money than I thought it could possibly be worth. I ended up with multiple offers that were even higher than the asking price on the day it went on the market. He helped me to understand the various offers in a way that made a confusing set of trade-offs very clear. Moreover, Brandon is very attuned to trying to determine his clients needs and helping them achieve their goals, rather than trying to move them in the direction that seems easiest or most obvious. In my experience, that is a rare quality. I would recommend him to a friend as a realtor anytime, with complete confidence.

This is my third house to buy through Brandon. It has been a pleasure working with him again. My sister and I have recently started our new house flipping business. Brandon has been a great asset and teacher through the this experience.

Looking forward to working with him in the near future selling and helping us find are new investments.

Brandon was great! He doesn't pressure you but gives you time and space. That is his style, to let his clients (and prospective buyers) come to him when ready. He will touch base but he lets us move at the pace we need to move at. He communicated very well by phone, email and text. He is thorough and honest. Brandon has integrity and conducts his self professionally.

I would highly recommend Brandon.

I found Brandon to be very professional and generally great. He showed great knowledge with the business and help significantly to make this sale happen. I would definitely recommend him to others and I will probably use him again in the future.

My husband, William, and I have had a great experience with Brandon. We initially contacted him because he came highly recommended by our broker. We told him that we wanted to work with an agent that is very active, engaged, communicative, and that really understands the market and can offer sound advice. He didn't hesitate to recommend Brandon, and he was right. Brandon spent time helping us think through the decisions we needed to make and he offered his advice in a way that was really helpful and based on all of the knowledge and evidence that was available to him. At the same time we always felt like he respected our decisions, because he knows that many of the decisions in buying a house are emotional rather than data-driven. We also appreciated how technology-savvy Brandon is because it makes the whole experience feel more efficient.

We have nothing but good things to say about Brandon, and we will definitely recommend him to any friends/family that need a real estate agent.

What can I say about Brandon? A super fabulous guy who is a uber-expert at real estate and many other related stuff! I have known him for 8 yrs now - we bought our first home through him, we sold our house with his help, and bought a new home with him!

He is just fantastic, as a professional and as a friend as well! He has the highest level of integrity, is hardworking, and is always looking out for his clients.

My entire family loves him!

Brandon was great. He was exactly what I wanted. He knows the market and he communicated well with both me and the buyers. I am recommending him to anyone that will listen.

I recently partnered with Brandon Faught to purchase my first home and had an exceptional experience. We first started looking at resale homes and Brandon was great about walking me through the pros/cons of each home and helping me temper my excitement and pushed me to be thorough when evaluating potential homes. We ended up deciding to build a brand new home instead (after Brandon helped me realize I was very particular and would be happiest in a home I could design). Brandon's help and expertise were invaluable throughout the building and financing process, down to last few minutes before closing. I'd highly recommend Brandon!

I worked with Brandon Faught to sell my house and buy a condo. He was superb at all aspect of the process. I wasn't sure what I wanted to do about my house and he helped me think through and evaluate all of the options. The sale was easy and efficient. I kept changing my mind about what I wanted in a new place, and he patiently worked with my on the implications of all of the plans until I really knew what I wanted to do. He gave me excellent advice on making an offer on the condo that I ultimately fell in love with so that I was able to buy it in this very competitive market. He is also a charming person, with whom it is always a pleasure to idea. I would recommend him highly to anyone.

Brandon was excellent. He answered many emails with detailed replies and even when a couple of offers didn't win, he stayed professional and helped us find the right investment property. We would definitely use him again and refer him to friends.

Brandon Faught is the best and only realtor I will ever call in Austin to buy or sell a house for me. He helped us buy the perfect house for our needs when we first moved here from California, then he helped us sell that house for a profit a few years later. He is dedicated, efficient, detail-oriented and easy to work with. He answered my calls, answered my questions and was always on top of our very difficult sale. I cannot say enough good things about him. Just hire him, you will be happy you did.

Brandon helped us buy the house that he helped us sell 7 years later. He has always proved himself to be dedicated, reliable and efficient. He is also just an good person and easy to work with. I know the next time I need a realtor, he will be my first and only call.

Working with Brandon was a very great experience indeed! He is a very approachable and knowledgable agent. He made the home buying process a breeze! We have bought and sold a home before but in another state. Coming into a market we knew nothing about Brandon made this purchase as seamless as possible- with his history in Austin and expertise in Real Estate he geared us for what the expect and taught us a lot about our new city along the way. We ended up working with a builder on a new construction and they were less than informative the past 9 months- Brandon made sure they provided the answers we needed and got communications going when there were none on the builders part. Some nights when our of state on business I would play catch up and send emails at sometimes after 10 and 11 PM, guess who would always respond promptly- Brandon! I was never expecting a response until later in the week...he's just that great at what he does.

We just feel so lucky we landed with Brandon after moving here! We will definitely use him for all future real estate transactions.

Brandon Faught did an amazing job helping my husband and I purchase our home; we are so happy we had the chance to work with him. My family and I moved from Houston to Austin, and he really eased the stress of our relocation. We were coming into an area that we knew nothing about, and Brandon helped us find a great house in a neighborhood that met all our needs. I feel like he really has expert knowledge of the market, and I trusted him to guide us through the entire process of buying our new home. Brandon is so professional and easy to talk to that I even called him to get advice a few times while we were selling our home in Houston just because I felt more comfortable talking to him than I did talking to my selling agent. I appreciated that he was always prompt with his communications with me, and I felt like he went out of his way to accommodate my schedule for appointments. Overall, my husband and I had a great experience. We would definitely use Brandon again and recommend him to our family or friends.

Brandon Faught wildly exceeded my expectations, and I have already referred him to a friend! He is responsive and quick, and really knows his stuff. He's especially knowledgeable about Central Austin - a love that we both share. Another great thing about working with Brandon is his extensive network of referrals.

Brandon Faught was absolutely everything that we needed in a buyer's agent. He had great local knowledge, helped us find the exact right home for us, and was very supportive through all of the other steps in the process (negotiating, dealing with lenders, inspection reports, etc.) He was extremely responsive and followed through on every commitment he made to us.

Brian

I was lucky enough to meet Brandon Faught through our first home buying experience. He made everything simple, had a TON of insight into the housing market, and was available morning noon and night for anything that came up. I have to admit I am a little baffled by the horror stories I hear from others on their home buying experience because he made everything so easy. I highly recommend getting in touch with him if you are looking to buy and will definitely be urging my friends to call him when they are in the market.

James Barnett, Facebook Review

Overall, Brandon Faught met my needs as a first time buyer. I didn't feel pressure from him. He communicated his thoughts and opinions very clearly and this is what I wanted most in an agent because I'm new to this. I valued his opinion more and more as our relationship continued.

He also encouraged me to keep patiently waiting and to not lose hope when I didn't get the first house I wanted. He was open to my idea of expanding my search to other areas of Austin even though he knew I wouldn't be satisfied with what I would find. It really helped that Brandon was very familiar with the areas that I wanted to purchase in.

Brandon responded to my communications very quickly. Brandon is very laid back and patient. Something I appreciate. I would definitely recommend him to others, especially those who are looking in the same area of Austin.

As an investor I have dealt with many agents, but Brandon is unique. Brandon is great. I know it is not easy to deal with 4 different units and a seller in California. His professionalism and knowledge of the market were huge assets to me in my search. I would highly recommend Brandon and the Realty Austin team.

Ravel

Brandon is the only Realtor I've met that is completely worth his fee! He is great in negotiation and always gets us a good deal. I've used him for several home purchase transactions! Highly recommended!

Patricia

Brandon did a great job and was on top of both transactions from day one. We are very pleased.

Aaron Deckler

Brandon Faught was exceptional in his understanding of the West Campus and NW Campus Area of Austin, Texas. We were on a mission in finding an apartment/house/condominum that would be used for my son while attending University of Texas. Brandon took us around to several places so we could view and compare different properties. Brandon was very knowledgeable and I trusted his judgment. He followed up on all items and provided his feedback on what is best and next steps in the bidding process to purchase a condominium.

I was very happy to work with Brandon Faught and I will be calling on him again for his services to help me with a Dripping Springs Property.

James P. Doyle

Brandon Faught is the best of the best, you are lucky to have such a person working for you. Thank you Brandon for your assistance in getting us such a great house.

by Iam Abel at Facebook

What we have experienced in the past from agents is a casual evaluation of our situation and the home we are going to sell. Instead, Brandon went through all the different steps in the process, like showing us all the comps in the neighborhood and educating us with a thorough analysis of the market. He was so prepared, whereas I think alot of other real estate agents really don't have that structure. The system in general was key to us getting the most money for our home. Brandon set our expectations well, and we listed our home at a price that we thought we would get. Instead, because of everything that he put into the situation, we got 4 offers in 3 days and sold our home for over our list price. It all happened very quickly. Brandon blew away our expectations!
