Connie Spelce

Associate Broker

Connie had the pleasure of becoming an “Austinite” and a “UT Longhorn” in the mid-70s. Then, like now, students lived four to a house near campus. And, most ex-students worked multiple jobs to be able to continue living here after graduation. Keith Richards of the Rolling Stones was once quoted as saying “I like it here in Texas. Anybody got a room?”

Much has changed in 40+ years. Austin’s job market is now one to the strongest in the nation. But population growth has led to stiff housing competition, where “finding a room,” means “finding a Realtor®.” A good realtor.

Though modern technology offers wonderful tools, buying and selling real estate remains a complex undertaking, and home ownership is a significant financial investment. So, having an experienced agent dedicated solely to client interest remains as valuable today as years past.


Background

Connie began her real estate career in Austin during the market crash of the mid-1980s, serving as an asset manager for banking institutions, developers and private investors. In 2005, she obtained her real estate salesperson’s license, and in 2012 her broker’s license.

Her husband, Neal Spelce, is a well-known Austin businessman and former TV news anchor, who, with Connie’s assistance, published The Neal Spelce Austin Letter weekly for 40 years. The newsletter chronicled Austin’s economic, political, high tech, and real estate transformation from a sleepy college town to the vibrant city it is today.

This in-depth market knowledge added to years of real estate experience and education, assures her clients the skill, dedication, and knowledge needed to assure smooth real estate transactions.

Favorite Places in Austin

While Connie enjoys spending time at her Lake Austin home, she also has her favorite spots around the city. You might spot her at University of Texas Longhorn football games during the fall, or rowing along Lady Bird Lake on a beautiful day. She also enjoys swimming at Barton Springs and Hamilton Pool in the hill country. There are so many things to do in Austin year round, but Connie’s favorites are hosted at the Headliners Club and the Austin City Limits Music Festival. If it’s date night, Connie and her husband enjoy dining out at Fonda San Miguel or Hudson’s on the Bend.

David and I are glad to share our experience and thoughts about Connie’s serving as our Realtor. Our only hesitation is in feeling inadequate to have words to cover every aspect of how magnificently she represented us in EVERY circumstance.

Let’s begin with that she found this listing for us in the first place. Connie took our pricing criteria and presented us with a manageable range of available options with her thoughts about each one. When we called her to say we were interested in this property, she made arrangements and met us at the house within hours. From that time on, she was always available. Is there anyone else you know who works harder than Connie? We are not novices in the world of real estate transactions, so it is with deep and broad experience that David and I can say we could not have been better represented. Connie addresses every detail that could possibly be considered.

From the moment we decided to make an offer through the closing and subsequent follow-through, Connie unfailingly stayed ahead of what needed to be done. In the process, she gave us lots of options for vendors to do inspections, problem solve, provide surveys, etc. without being tied to any of them herself. She helped guide us in making the best choices.

Connie was not afraid to negotiate in our interest. Even when the other Realtor was ‘unpleasant’ to the point of being uncivil, i.e., vicious, Connie maintained her gracious, professional, unwavering manner in responding in our best interest. Could we just say she “walks on water”? We have seen the miracle act!

Connie Spelce did a phenomenal job listing and selling our Austin home. We do not live locally, and so Connie managed to take care of so many of the various details in clearing out our furnishings, preparing the house for showing, and finally, the actual sale. She kept us well apprised of status all along the way. Recommend very highly based on our experience working with Connie and Realty Austin.

Connie did a great job. I was pleased to have her as a Realtor. Especially when I was not there, it was nice to know that I could trust her. And she was familiar with the area. She put in extra work, getting it ready to sell. I recommend Connie.
