When Carson finally arrived in Austin after graduating high school in Temple, TX he attended the University of Texas in pursuit of a Radio Television Film Degree. He then entered the hospitality and restaurant business, with the last stint in that industry at the Four Seasons Hotel here in Austin. There he learned the ultimate in customer service, impeccable client interface and tireless attention to detail. All of this translated seamlessly into a Real Estate career that began in 2001.

His commitment to clients years after they have done business is something he takes a lot of pride in.

Carson Gallagher was our realtor and he made our home purchase flawless! My husband and I have never purchased an existing home before and thanks to Carson everything went more smooth than I ever imagined! Carson has been communicating with us for 2yrs. as we weren't ready to buy until recently... He has always been courteous and never put any pressure to do anything before we were ready. He and his team were on top of every detail and I would recommend him for anyone wanting to purchase or sell their home!

Carson Gallagher was an amazing buyer's agent through an incredibly difficult purchase. He encountered issues during our purchase that he may never encounter again: but he handled them all with amazing diligence and aplomb. I will continue to seek is his professional expertise as my personal agent for life for all of my residential and investment property needs.

We are very happy with Carson's service, he definitely exceeded our expectations, he made this process very easy and enjoyable for us. We will definitely work again with him and refer him to our friends. He is a great realtor and a great person!

We really liked Carson and would recommend him to anyone buying or selling in Austin. First, we did months and months of looking on the Internet and Carson was there to help direct our searches when needed. He kept in respectable contact with us even before we were actively looking. Then, when we did start to look at houses he was available sometimes in less than 24 hours notice and was professional, relaxed and attentive. We never thought we were being pushed to buy something and instead was given good concrete information about the pros and cons of the house and the area. Once we did have a signed contract and were headed into closing, your office was very organized and detailed about all the steps that needed to occur. It was good support in a very stressful time. We are VERY happy with our new home in Austin and wish Carson was available to help us sell our house in Katy!

When looking for a Realtor I called Carson first, since at the time he lived Grand Oaks. He also puts out monthly marketing updates on GO's facebook pages about what has sold, on the market, etc, etc... When I called him, I said I am not sure that I am going to sell this house but would like your opinion on my house and what you think about the market. He took the time to come out and we went over the house. I also explained to him where I wanted to live and the kind of house I was looking for. He setup a daily search with my criteria and I started to like the houses I was seeing out in Buda.

When I decided that I was going to sell my house we came up with a plan on how and when we were going to list it. I did not want to list too soon, as after what I was seeing, I knew my house would not last long. One thing I expect is very good communication this is what I do for my job and only work well with others of the same mindset. I could always get a hold of Carson and if he did not answer, I would get a text immediately letting me know that he was busy and would call me back as soon as he could.

We found a house and Carson and I put the offer out and got about 8K off with free wood blinds and their top-tier appliances. We came up with a date to list and an amount of what we would ask for the place. Not sure if we would get it as it would be the highest listing for GO. My house was worth it because is spent over a lot over there years making it right. We got an offer within 24 hours or so for over asking. At that point Carson and I only worry was is it going to appraise. It would be and was the highest selling price in GO.

I would recommend Carson to anyone who is selling a house. I have a friend already thinking about it and I gave him Carson's information and told him just to call and see what he thinks and not to worry if you decide not to sell. At least he would have an idea.

Had a great selling experience with Carson Gallagher. Would highly recommend. Easy to work with, fast, prompt, and communicative.

Our experience with Carson can be summed up in one word, AMAZING!!! From start to finish. Listed, sold, and closed in about two weeks. We could not be happier with his expertise. He is also a classic (and classy) gentleman. If we have any other realty business in the Austin area, it will be with him.

This was the first time that I have sold a house and it was great to have Carson lead us through this process. Selling a house can be a very emotional and stressful experience, especially for a first-time seller. Carson made sure that we were informed on every decision and walked us through every step of the way -- from prepping the house before putting it on the market to the final day of closing. Carson's experience and knowledge of our neighborhood, Grand Oaks in south Austin, was a huge asset when pricing and ultimately selling our house. His experience as a realtor was extremely useful for catching contract mistakes and negotiating on our behalf. While his calm, professional demeanor made the entire process an exciting venture, rather than a stressful one. I know that I was not his only client at the time, but it felt like we were the priority. Any time I had a question or concern, he was available and helped to find a resolution.

It was a pleasure working with Carson. He also referred me to the realtor I used when I bought my first home in California. That guy was really nice, too.

Carson is a great guy who helped me find a great home -- what more can I say? He's a pleasure to spend time with while house-hunting, in tune with your needs, and fights to get the best from the seller. We got more than what I expected for repairs, avoided unwelcome contract stipulations and saved a few percent off the total price as a result. I'm a happy client.

Carson is also the source of two referrals which made me happy as well, my realtor in California and the lending company here in Austin. They handled everything with perfect professionalism.

Thumbs up.

Carson was extremely helpful in getting the contract on our home in SW Austin. After months of searching for the perfect house we finally found the right one. Carson made the process very smooth and concise. Thanks Carson!

Carson was professional throughout the entire process. He is a former investor in Austin and that's why I asked him to represent us. Carson shared some stories with us about his experience with being a landlord and was upfront enough to give us "the real picture" instead of just trying to sell us a multi-unit building. Carson had us setup on the listings site to get emails on SFRs; but, he still kept us in mind when a 2/3/4-plex that looked good popped up. Carson was extremely available and responsive to our questions. I never once doubted his knowledge of the market and he even surprised me with his knowledge of foundations and trees in Austin. Carson has been available even after the closing and I would absolutely work with him again. Thank you, Carson!

I am happy to sing my praises regarding Carson Gallagher. He is an outstanding agent and held our hands through the entire process of purchasing a house for our son. He is a man of his word and highly professional. When Carson said that "he would look into" something for us, regardless of how silly it sounded, he did. Carson keeps a great network of various professionals on his Rolodex. Since we are not from Austin his recommendations were valuable starting with the mortgage banker, inspectors, repairmen, etc. The speed of the entire process was remarkable and due primarily because of Carsons's ability to manage the appointments and choose responsible people to do their job in a timely manner. We were definitely on a very tight schedule for closing. I was especially impressed that Carson attended all of the inspections and helped us sort out the different possibilities. The house was not in a "move-in ready" condition and there were expensive issues that needed immediate consideration. We always felt that Carson was watching out for us and doing everything he could to make our purchase as painless as possible. His phone calls and emails of support were appreciated since we felt like we were not in control of some of the situations. My stress levels were at an all time high mainly due to the paperwork required for the loan application. I never wondered during the process what was happening because Carson kept me up to date on everything. Carson's experience, guidance and real estate knowledge was evidence that this definitely was not his first rodeo! He impressed us many times over the course of this transaction but his final good deed to us was making sure that our son and his family were able to move into the house over the weekend. We had submitted our check at the closing earlier that day, but because it was a weekend it meant that the sellers who were in Nevada, would not be returning their signed paperwork until Tuesday. We were all overjoyed when Carson pulled a rabbit out of his hat and came up with a "Seller's Temporary Lease Agreement". Realty Austin can be proud to have Carson Gallagher represent their agency.

My wife and I could not be more pleased with the amount--and most importantly, quality--of professionalism, knowledge, and personalized service that Carson Gallagher displayed throughout the process of selling our home in Austin. We walked away from our first meeting with him with complete confidence that he would have our best interest in mind and that confidence only increased over time. We both tend to be worriers by nature, and Carson's calm, informed, and rational approach to every step of the transaction worked absolute wonders in quashing our stress levels. Simply put, if he said "don't worry about X, Y and Z," we didn't worry. In hindsight, he was correct in his assessment every single time. It was truly a pleasure to work with Carson, and without question, he's the first person we're going to recommend to anyone either looking to sell or purchase a home in the Austin area.  

Mark and Trish Iversen

Carson was great to work with. He was always there when we needed him. He knew what he was talking about and was always honest with us. We are so glad we were able to buy and sell with him.  We've had a bad experience with a Realtor in the past, and now we know we'll never have to deal with that again. If we were ever to move again, Carson would be the first person we'd call.

The Winburns 

Like most people with a growing family setting out to purchase a 'forever' home, we had pretty high expectations and our wish list was about a mile long. Carson Gallagher was very patient with us during the whole journey. He honestly and objectively listened to our ever-evolving list of 'demands,' and helped us hone in on our dream house in a great school district. The entire process was seamless because Carson was so available and knowledgeable throughout. This was actually my second home to buy with Carson. He got me into my first home, then he oversaw the very speedy sale of our starter and made the transition into our new house easy and painless. Thank you Carson! If we ever need a realtor again, he's our guy!

Dr. Erin Smith & Chris Sphar

As first time home buyers, we chose to work with Carson Gallagher based on his broad knowledge of Austin real estate and laid-back personality. Ultimately we felt like Carson was someone who could really partner with us as we searched for the perfect home. It really turns out that we made a great decision! We can't say enough how constantly impressed we were with Carson's patience and professionalism during our housing search. He helped us find a beautiful home for our family, advised us during a successful negotiation, and flawlessly led us through closing. Overall, we love our home and we loved working with Carson!

Blake & Allison Brundidge

Carson helped us to sell a home and purchase a new home during the same summer. He counseled us with the utmost professionalism, organization, focus, reliability, and dedication.  He was a pleasure to work with; fun to spend time with, and made himself available to us around the clock. Carson made a tricky and logistically challenging process more enjoyable. If you are looking at this recommendation to help decide whether Carson is a good agent, look no further, as you've found the right guy.

Heather & Durel Bernard

Last year our family realized that after 10 years, we had outgrown our first house. We had put a lot of work and love into that place, making it really tough to think about moving. Carson Gallagher, our Realtor, not only helped us negotiate a great sale and helped us find a wonderful new home at the perfect price, but he made the entire process comfortable and fun. In what could have been a nightmare of bad timing and unworkable deadlines, Carson anticipated potential problems and had us completely prepared for each step in the selling and buying processes. We closed on our old house one week and closed on the new home the next, and we didn’t spend a single night without sleeping in our own beds. Thanks to Carson’s attention to detail, his great attitude and his constant availability, we actually enjoyed our home-selling and home-buying experience.

Jonathan and Cynthia Nelson

We contacted Carson while we were staying in an apartment in North Austin. It was our first time to buy a home and we were nervous and very green in the world of real estate. Once we established our needs and budget, we were off. Carson was really fun to work with and never seemed bothered by taking us to homes all over the Austin area. Never at any time did we feel like he was pressuring us in our decisions. Carson was a great asset to us not only in the buying process of our home, but also in the selling process. When it came time to sell our home, he gave us great advice and we had a buyer within a month. We were extremely pleased with his efforts on our behalf and would highly recommend him to friends and family.

Kevin and Kendra Fox

It started out as any regular day back in October of 2006. Carson and I had a brief conversation about how the market was doing and what interest rates were available at that time for homebuyers. Within half an hour, a plan was formulated into looking at the possibility of selling my home. At the time, I had a 3 + 2.5 1300+ sq. ft. home in South Austin that was about 12 years old. I was locked into a deal that had me paying a ridiculous interest rate...which is what piqued Carson's attention in the first place. I felt that Carson was genuinely concerned about my current disposition. Instantly, Carson's confidence took over the driver's seat and made me feel comfortable about this seemingly intimidating process. Long story short, Carson had my house under contract in 9 days and closed out in less than a month. He also found a beautiful 5 + 2.5 brand new house in South Austin for me and my family to reside. At the time we found this house, it was already 47% into the building phase. He was able to build a relationship with the contractors and the sales people of this builder, which ended up saving me some money and even managed to squeeze a few upgrades due to some time constraints. All in all, the whole process took minimal effort. I felt like someone had my best interest at heart and really took the time to educate and keep me informed from start to finish. I now take comfort knowing that I have my own "real estate guy" to turn to for my next home-selling/buying venture. Thanks Carson!..Mi Casa es Su Casa!

John C. Torres

When I bought my first house, I had no experience with the process of buying a home. I needed a Real Estate Professional who could not only help me find the right house, but also guide me through the process of purchasing the home. Carson provided both of these services. He listened to my needs and found a home for me that perfectly suited those needs. He also assembled a powerful team to guide me through the process of buying the home so as to make my transition into home ownership as easy and painless as possible. I look forward to working with him in the future and will send friends and colleagues his way.

Renee Hughes

Carson facilitated the sale and purchase of my homes. Thanks to him, it was a smooth and painless process. Carson is easy to work with, extremely knowledgeable, and cool under pressure. I highly recommend him!

Stacey Joyner

Carson provided invaluable assistance to me in both the selection and purchase of my home. He understood my objectives, and he helped me meet those objectives without exceeding my budget. Carson's expertise and knowledge of the market added great value to my purchase, and I'd certainly work with him again.

Seth Meisel

My wife and I selected Carson to help sell our home right as the Housing Market was heading south. Carson was a neighbor of ours so his knowledge of our home and our neighborhood was priceless. Carson was excellent at recommending when we should put our home on the market, what we needed to do to stage our home and the marketing flyer he had created for our home. His efforts in preparation, research and marketing paid off as our home sold in 40 days. Carson was prepared throughout the entire process, even when we got nervous at the 30 day mark and wanted to lower our price. With Carson leading the way, we had great success at two Open Houses and eventually those led to several offers being received within days of each other. Carson was the epitome of Professionalism and I would highly recommend Carson to purchase or sell a home. It was an absolute joy to work with Carson!

Mario M. Esteves Jr.

Carson helped me find my first home in S. Austin. He really made our first home buying experience a positive one. He has extensive knowledge of the Austin real estate market and truly helped to guide my wife and I into the right home...at the right price! I would highly recommend him to anybody looking into buying property in Austin!

Jared Bahner

Carson is pretty much a miracle worker. I’d never worked with a Realtor before and didn’t think I’d need one to sell my home. After a couple of months trying to do it myself, I met with him and he gave me a concise description of what he could do to sell the house and things I needed to do to prepare. My wife and I did a lot to personalize the place, so I thought it might take a while, even working with a Realtor. Carson sold my house in three days and for almost full price. We don’t live in Austin anymore or Texas for that matter, but if we ever move back we’re calling Carson!
