Dave Chastain



Buying or selling real estate is the most important financial decision an individual can make. Dave Chastain is passionate, hard-working, and dedicated to helping his clients navigate through either process, whether it is finding his clients their perfect home or selling the property they own. His ultimate goal is to make his clients happy! Dave is not only extremely patient in fulfilling his clients’ wants and needs, but he is also committed to helping them in an efficient and effective manner. In the five years that Dave has been a realtor, he has helped his clients find their dream homes in the ever growing and challenging real estate market we live in.

Though not originally from Austin, Dave arrived in 2001 and has since made the appealing city his permanent home. Before getting his real estate license, Dave attended Texas State University and moved to Austin after graduation. Dave then worked for Homeland Security, helping victims of catastrophic natural disasters and performing fraud investigations committed under FEMA. Subsequently, for seven years, he helped students apply for college loans to further their education and assist them in scheduling loan payments to the Department of Education. This diverse experience has provided Dave with a unique set of skills, such as effective communication, the ability to negotiate, a broad understanding of financing, and most importantly, a strong sense of compassion.

Dave and his wife have two beautiful children. The oldest attends Texas A&M University, and the youngest just finished kindergarten. Dave’s hobbies include playing sand volleyball, skiing, and most of all, spending time with his family. Dave especially enjoys traveling with them whenever he can.

Dave becomes forever connected to every single client he helps. He treats them like family, giving them honest and effective advice, ultimately leading them to find their perfect home.

We had lived in the same house for 13 years in Austin. I met Dave Chastain when he was selling my neighbor’s house five years before him becoming our agent. I had verbally told him four years ago that he would be our agent when the timing was right. I am positive that he did not think that it would take as long as it did for us to decide that it was time to sell our home, but he patiently stayed with us over the years by checking in and updating us on the neighborhood market.

The moment that we started to talk about my new job in a different city (we had four Realtors immediately ask if they could list our home) before I even had a chance to tell Dave what was happening. They all had compelling pitches, but, in the end, we chose Dave Chastain to be our Realtor. We chose him because we had seen him at work in our neighborhood, his strong work ethic and reputation amongst neighbors and agents alike. I had personally witnessed Dave Chastain sell houses in our neighborhood successfully and quickly many times over, sometimes before the sign was in the front yard.

In many instances, Dave was selling houses when other Realtors were not nearly as successful. There was a house for sale built the same time as ours, but with more sqft and was on the greenbelt. The home has been listed off and on for over a year because it was listed with a different Realtor. Ours listed on May 31, we had three competing offers by June 2 and were under contract over the asking price on June 3. It closed three weeks later. The house down the street still has not gone under contract as of this writing.

What Dave will do is research and realistically assess the situation and tell you his tactful opinion, identify potential areas for instant improvement, learn to work around the personalities around the table and help you get to the result; a completed transaction. He will work hard to get your home ready for it to show its best, even if it means that he needs to push you (or your spouse) to clean or de-clutter more. My wife and I wholeheartedly recommend Dave Chastain. When we move back to Austin, he will be our Realtor. He gets results.

Dave is the best. He sold my house last winter during a nasty divorce and was so helpful and kind, and tried to help me find a rental. So when it was time to buy my new home, I knew I could count on Dave to help me through the process. I recommend him to all my friends, and I wouldn’t think of using anyone else. He really cares about his clients. Realty Austin is lucky to have him!

Dave was fantastic throughout the process of us buying our second home. His knowledge and understanding of the Austin real estate market, and how to best take advantage of its weird conditions, is unparalleled. Beyond that, he's a first-class guy you can trust without hesitation to help you navigate one of life's more nerve-wracking processes. Dave will be our life-long realtor. There's no doubt about that.

Dave is very patient, is easy to spend time with and puts his client first. He was so kind to me when I needed to find a home from Houston really quickly. I made 3 trips from there, and he made time for my crazy schedule. With his persistence, I was able to move into the place I wanted, which was closest to my daughter’s school. We’re very happy, and I’d happily recommend him.

Dave provided great service and helped my family of 5 get into a great home. We wanted to move into a bigger home with more land and didn't have the easiest search. We wanted to stay close to Austin, TX. After a season of house hunting, we managed to find one and here we are. That's what is expected of a real estate agent. Here is why he went above and beyond.

During the staging of our home to sell, he was aware that my wife and I were going to stage it. He decided to come to help me move. How many agents take time out of their day to help move and move the big stuff (like a 6 drawer wooden hutch)? I don't know of many that would. He had a sore back for days but helped a great deal.

Even after we closed on both houses he wanted to make sure we were taken care of. There are always little hiccups that occur in any process. Dave went out of his way to make sure that all were resolved, even after money changed hands. I have heard many stories of agents' service decreasing significantly once commissions were received. He still checks on us currently.

Finally, he has a wealth of connections that he can use to help make the buying and/or selling process easy and efficient. From make ready services, to handyman work, to lawn care, etc. We tried some of them and they too provide above and beyond service.

We were very pleased with Dave and would recommend him to anyone looking to move or purchase property. If he is still doing real estate when Kyan and Naomi are ready to buy I know who they will be reaching out to.

Thank you, Dave!

We have purchased homes in the past and I thought working with Dave would be more of the same. He would set up the search and send us contracts to sign. Our experience with Dave was totally different. He went above and beyond what any other realtor has done in the past. He made himself available whenever we wanted to look at properties. Once we made the offer, he continuously advocated for us. We always felt like he was on our side, even with a difficult closing. I would highly recommend Dave Chastain. He is passionate about helping his clients buy and sell.

Working with Dave was great. I have bought a few houses over the years but no one was as willing and almost seemed as excited as me to look at a lot of different properties until we found the right one. He also did this with a friend of mine who previously worked with him. Due to the other agent being MIA and title company not getting all the documents in time the closing was a little frustrating for me but Dave was there the whole day to work on a solution. At one point he even said that if I did not feel comfortable he would find me another place. (He actually did as a backup but I decided to stay with the original one). I absolutely recommend Dave to use as your agent.

When my husband and I decided to sell our home, we knew Dave would be the best agent for the job! Our sales price was ranked as the 4th highest EVER in the community which is a big deal! He was always available to answer our questions and, when we were at our wits end, he kept us calm and focused. Dave is definitely one of our favorite realtors and we look forward to working with him again in the future!

Dave was a life saver for my roommates and I when we recently decided to move. We changed our minds multiple times about what we were looking for and he was always so flexible, and worked hard to find us exactly what we were looking for. He’s very responsive and makes you feel like his #1 priority. We just finished moving into our new apartment and it’s perfect!! I’m so grateful to have had Dave to help make moving such a great experience!

I met Dave through the volleyball community, where I knew him as a good player, captain, and family guy (he likes to bring his son out, and his son loves my puppy). We all know multiple realtors, and it's difficult to choose one - I chose Dave because he seemed like a sincere and kind person, and I knew I'd need some extra help as a first time home buyer. My decision definitely paid off! Dave was always flexible with my schedule, highly communicative/available, and very resourceful (he'd always point me to the correct person if he didn't have the answer to one of my outlandish questions). My happiness was his #1 priority throughout the entire process, and he was constantly checking in on my progress/mental status. He gave me very helpful advice, but made sure that I was making my own decisions. Dave constantly reminded me to ensure I was making decisions based on what I truly wanted in a home, and not just the feedback I was getting from everyone around me.

All in all, Dave was patient, selfless, and professional, but most importantly, very supportive. I highly recommend him, both as a realtor and a friend :)

Dave just sold our home in Travis Country West and did a great job. It was a super easy process for us and he was on top of it all the way. He is very professional, easy to deal with and simply just a good guy! I would highly recommend him.
