I worked with Brian and Marianne Schaffer. Brian and Marianne were both kind and helpful. They were there for me every step of the way. I highly recommend working with Brian and Marianne and Realty Austin.

Brian Schaffer is personable, professional and reliable. He came out on short notice to show us a house (that we didn't end up buying) when other Realtors just couldn't or wouldn't. With Brian's help, we did end up finding the one that was right for us. We would absolutely recommend Brian to others.


December 1 2018

Brian and Marianne are incredible. Their professionalism was the only reason my move was a success. I had to switch lenders and Brian and Marianne were able to help coordinate resources at all times and days. They made themselves available to me and my family to answer and support all of our issues. I will be recommending their services to anyone looking for homes in the Austin area. A+ team fully recommended!


October 1 2018

Very responsive and helpful finding solutions. Worked with listing broker to find a way for us to purchase when owner was very attached to their home.


September 1 2018

Brian helped us find and purchase our first house! As first-time home buyers, we were clueless about the process and asked a million remedial questions. Brian answered every one of them with patience, humor, and expertise. He never made us feel as clueless as we surely were. He was very generous with his time and wealth of knowledge to help us every step of the way. When our first offer didn't work out, he was quick to share his resilience and came back with even more options to help us find the right house in the right place for the right price. He was our ally and advocate, coordinating the replacement of the roof prior to the sale and offering advice and resources to help us navigate our new adventure in home ownership. We don't plan on selling our new home anytime soon, but if we did, we would call Brian!

Brian was showing us homes for my elderly mother for over a year. He was so patient and understanding about her situation. She had recently lost an adult child and the move was to get her closer to all of her children & grandkids. The house had to have a list of things for her to consider. Brian found the house we just closed on in the right neighborhood, within the right price range, and it had all the things she had on her list. He was cheerful, attentive and very persistent with us. I'm so thankful he stuck it out. The final outcome was worth the wait!


August 1 2018

Marianne and Brian are amazing! They went above and beyond and made our first home buying experience a breeze. Their passion for their work is evident. They are extremely attentive, sweet, and want the best for their clients. I feel so lucky to have had them for my first home buying experience. I highly recommend them.


August 1 2018

We are so happy to have worked with Brian Schaffer on the purchase of our home. He was exceptionally knowledgeable on the area we wanted to move to, and once we settled on the home, we wanted to put an offer in on he worked to help us get a fair price and negotiated on our behalf. He responded to many texts and phone calls in a timely manner and was EXCEPTIONAL at helping keep me calm and sane during the crazy business of selling our home and buying this one. We found the home we bought in the end of May, listed the home we sold early June, and completed closing on both 7/31. Brian’s wife Marianne also worked on our transactions on the paperwork side of things and was just as fantastic as getting things done, answering all our questions and making sure everything was in place for closings. She is truly a gem to work with too.


July 1 2018

We highly recommend Brian. He helped us through a difficult process of buying a home in a city we knew little about and in a short period of time. His responsiveness, flexibility, honesty, knowledge about homes/ building, and positivity made him a true asset for us in our process. He proved to be a person who is willing to do what it takes and put his clients first


June 1 2018

Brian was so wonderful and patient, he showed us so many houses till we found the perfect one! We would highly recommend him! Brian is so friendly, and knowledgeable of the area.


June 1 2018

Brian is the real deal. Your best interest is what He looks out for. I will recommend Brian to everyone moving here I can find. His attention to details, meticulous and thorough knowledge of all facets of all processes was greatly appreciated. This is YOUR GUY. We would not have our new home without Brian. Thank you!


May 1 2018

Communication is crucial in the home buying process, especially when you're relocating from another state. Brian made it easy by listening to our needs and scheduling showings for only the most appropriate homes during our brief visits to the Georgetown area. His follow up was never pushy and he always returned our calls quickly. Brian’s patience and diligence ultimately lead to our purchase of a home in Georgetown. Brian's wife, Marianne, handles the paperwork in a very efficient and competent manner. It's obvious that both Brian and Marianne enjoy their work and their outgoing personalities really help reduce the stress of home buying. My wife and I highly recommend you use Brian and Marianne as your realtor team in Austin.


April 1 2018

Brian was great! He guided me through the whole looking, qualifying, and buying process. He is very knowledgeable and willing to go above and beyond to make sure the client is satisfied and happy. I definitely recommend Brian to be your Realtor.


March 1 2018

Near the end of January, my husband and I found out that we needed to move to Texas. We found Brian on and he quickly responded to our request for a realtor. Brian helped us find our dream home in one weekend. The home buying process can be frustrating, but Brian helped us through each stage. We highly recommend Brian to anyone looking for a realtor that they can trust. You can't go wrong with Brian!! He goes above and beyond to help his clients.

Brian made the process very easy - even when I could not make it to the final walk-through Brian went for me and checked everything out! Being new to the area and very busy with a new position in my company, Brian even came to me when preparing the paperwork - great time saver.


March 1 2018

Brian was great, easy to get ahold of, fast, and efficient. Him and his wife helped us every step of the way through the home buying process. Couldn't have asked for better Realtors.


March 1 2018

Both Marianne and Brian made seeing, selecting, and purchasing our new house as easy as possible. Definitely a pleasure to work with them and I would recommend them.

Cedar Park buyer

Brian was spot on right from the get-go. Every house he showed us he was absolutely correct in guessing how *hot* it is and how quickly it might go. I am confident that he was being completely honest when he shared his insights on prices and home values with us. In other words, he was advising us no different from what he would a relative or a friend. He has excellent knowledge of the subject and was able to be in our corner and guide us through any of the obstructions that came in our way. He always showed up when we needed him, which was many, many times. And he never made it sound like it was a chore or anything like that (and our property is not a high value one either). Would wholeheartedly recommend him and take him up for any future home transactions.


February 1 2018

Brian was amazing!! Helped us find and buy our dream home. Brian is a very patient and hardworking person. He was there every step of the way. Has awesome contacts to help with everything you need to finance and purchase a home. I couldn't have asked for a better Realtor!! We are so grateful and appreciative that Brian helped us move here from across the country. We think the world of you Brian and feel blessed that you were there for us!! We love our house!!!


January 1 2018

I think that Brian initially called me within about two minutes of me indicating my interest in a home on Zillow, and that level of responsiveness set the tone for the rest of the process of buying our new home. At every step along the way, Brian was always readily available, knowledgeable, and willing to go what I would definitely consider above and beyond in helping to make sure we got the best deal we could, ultimately getting us about 2% off of the asking price of the home (which was a lot of money!). We had a hard freeze while we were in the process of buying the home, and Brian checked to make sure that the heat was on so that the pipes wouldn't freeze. Even after the purchase, he has been great about responding to any lingering questions we have had. It was our first home purchase, and so it was great to have someone who was so quick to respond and willing to answer even what I am sure were totally ignorant questions. I really feel like we got lucky having Brian as our realtor, and I won't hesitate to recommend him to anyone else buying a home in Austin.

Thank you so much to Marianne (and Brian and team) for their amazing work. She made what could have been a long a very confusing process much less stressful. Very personable, attentive, and responsive. None of our beginner questions were too small. Always reachable for questions and able to meet us the day & time we were available. Very organized and detailed. Truly wanted to help us find the right house. Highly recommend her and this team. Thank you again!


December 1 2017

If you are looking to purchase your home, especially when you are an out of towner and the first-time home buyer in Austin. We highly recommend Brian Schaffer. Brian has great knowledge of our entire home buying process. His team was also lovely to work with. His wife, Marianne, is a sweetheart. All throughout the negotiations and closing, they went above and beyond to make our real estate transactions flow smoothly through each step of the process. They remain dedicated and involved after the contract is signed, all the way to closing. Most of them walk away as soon as the ink is dry on the contract. They are very friendly and always willing to help in all ways possible. We couldn't have asked for a better realtor. A++!!

Brian and his team made my first home purchase the most incredible experience I've ever had! He goes above and beyond every second of every day; super responsive, and always makes time for you. He is extremely knowledge and helpful. Brian even met contractors to get repair estimates, made sure the fence was secure for our pups until the repairmen come, he just never stops! Everything went so smoothly that we closed in under 30 days! The lender went above and beyond as well. There may be some fresh baked cookies in it for you as well. I highly recommend letting Brian and his team lead you down the path to your new home!!!


October 1 2017

We had just an idea to buy a home when we looked at this house. Brian made it a reality. He was always available and offered great advice. Brian was positive, patient, and friendly. I would suggest to anyone who asks, to work with him and his wife.

Cedar Park Buyer

October 1 2017

Loved working with this team! They were very knowledeable, and helped us get into a home we love, negotiating with the seller and pushing to get us all the items on our punch list.


September 1 2017

Brian was exceptional! This was my first house purchase but he helped me every step of the way and answered my insane amount of questions/e-mails. Brian and Marianne work very hard and are available around the clock. If I had a question, I could call or e-mail and I would get a response within minutes! I would highly recommend Brian if you are looking for another home and even more so if this is your first home ever and you know little (like I was).


August 1 2017

Brian is very professional and so helpful. He was with our family every step of the real estate journey. When times became stressful, we always put our minds at ease and had options for solutions. He answered all of our questions whenever they came up. Even after closing he stayed in touch to make sure our home and family were doing well. I highly recommend Brian as your experienced realtor.


August 1 2017

We would give Brian 10 stars if we could. His is the epitome of professionalism and superb customer service. He was excellent in his negotiations for the property we wanted to purchase. After the terms were settled, Brian, then met with contractors in the new home for future projects. He helped us to understand the process of renovations and gave sound advice to make this home ours. We are a busy working couple and Brian was there to help navigate us through every aspect of making our dream come true, including helping us get our current home market ready. He let the contractors in, checked their work, locked up after he even let our dogs out to go potty and water the flowers. I don't think we could have gotten through this without Brian, we have had great Realtor's before but Brian was exceptional. we thank you Brian from the bottom of our hearts, and we want to thank your amazing wife and partner Marianne as well. She was so helpful with all the paperwork and had such patience in allowing you to help us so much! Thank you both so so much!

We just closed our home with Brian's help. Having relocated from Europe we were completely unfamiliar with the purchasing process in the States - Brian was super helpful and patient with us throughout the process. He was super responsive and available, even at short notice and his partnership with his wife was very effective. Brian negotiated on items that were important for us and I believe his relationship building skills were key in securing on our asks and to top it all off, he was just a super nice, down to earth guy who was extremely easy to deal with. I would recommend him highly to anyone looking for an agent. He will definitely be the first person I reach out to if I am looking to purchase again.


June 1 2017

First time ever doing anything like this and Brian was extremely helpful throughout the entire process. He gave me tips from home decor to proper maintenance and said I could reach out to him anytime with any other questions.
