David Ivy

David Ivy

REALTOR®

David’s earliest real estate memory is from the 5th grade when he would repeatedly call the 800 number of a local broker to listen to recorded messages describing the latest listings. Fast forward to 2012, when David began his real estate career as an investor while in graduate school at The University of Texas at Austin. After teaching at UT Austin and UT San Antonio, he decided to remain rooted in the city and state he loves and make real estate his full-time career. His extensive investment experience and unique educational background are a tremendous asset to his clients, whether they are sophisticated investors or first-time home buyers. David is a skilled educator, negotiator, and client advocate who ensures his buyers and sellers thoroughly understand the market, avoid major surprises, and protect their interests in one of life’s most consequential financial transactions. At the same time, he strives to keep the process as fun and stress-free as possible.

David’s fundamental client service philosophy comes down to one thing—integrity. It’s easy to do the right thing when the right thing happens to be the easy thing to do. But what about when doing the right thing is difficult or unpleasant? What about when nobody is looking or nobody will find out? David is intensely mindful of this distinction—what is right vs. what is easy/convenient—in both his professional and personal life and takes very seriously the trust his clients place in him.

David is a 5th generation Texan living in Austin since 2006. He and his wife, Erin, have three children, including twin boys. He loves playing guitar and drums, reading, exploring new restaurants & bars, and taking advantage of Austin’s live music scene.

David was an absolute pleasure to work with. He attended every single meeting with the sales team, builder, and inspector even when it wasn’t entirely necessary for him to be there. David was very educational when needed. He advocated on my behalf when needed and kept in constant communicated with me. If I were buying another house, I’d call him immediately for representation. No complaints.

David Ivy went above and beyond in helping us become first-time homeowners. We decided we wanted to purchase our first house to kick start our real estate adventure, and David was very level headed in sharing multiple perspectives. Having a person walk through all the options made us feel extremely at ease at making the biggest purchase of our lives. He is very thorough with his processes and has a vast network of people to work with. He very deservedly so got recognized as the top 500 Realtors! Congrats and thank you, David.

I want to immediately say David went above and beyond what we could have expected. We started looking for an investment property in Austin about a year ago, beginning with condos near downtown. At the time, none of us were local, and David went above and beyond to help us understand the Austin market. He gave us great insight into different options and locations. He provided great service by doing video tours for us, as well. We had an accepted offer on a condo, but in the end, we had to withdrawal due to lack of rental permits in that condo association. David showed understanding and support in those decisions, which was very appreciated.

Over the next year, David continued communication with us and his system provided daily updates, and he also personally reached out to us when something particular would suit us. He was extremely patient with us as we changed strategies. We were trying to find a plan that would work in this competitive market, and he showed a lot of understanding. We appreciate his sticking with us through this entire time.

The most impressive part of our experience with David was over the past couple of months. We were up against over a dozen offers, some cash. David was able to use his feel and expertise to craft the right offer, approach the seller in the right way, and convince the seller of how smooth the process would be with his team. I thought we had no chance when I heard how many offers there were and that we weren't the highest. Acquiring this property was a surprise, and we owe many our good fortunes to David's approach and network. We have been in business since 2012 and are confident in saying that he has been the best agent we have had. We are excited to work with him again as soon as possible.

David Ivy is an excellent agent and a great guy. We first spoke online, where he was very helpful with a few of my initial questions for moving to Texas. OVER A YEAR LATER...when we finally started making some phone calls on properties in Austin, David saw my name pop up and reached out to me with a full accounting of our past conversations, as well as a very detailed synopsis of the current Austin market. We spent about 2 months making weekly round trips down from Dallas, and David always went out of his way to be a resource for us. The level of information, support, and guidance was like nothing I've ever seen before. We landed a dream investment property among 7 different offers the day after the property was listed. Couldn't be happier to know and work with David Ivy

Working with David Ivy was a pleasure, and we greatly appreciated his patience and understanding as we looked at dozens of homes across central Austin over six months. We never felt pressured to make a decision, and he was always readily available when houses came to market (nights, weekends, mornings). David was especially great at explaining the process, and as first-time homebuyers, this was extremely helpful to us. I would highly recommend to anyone looking for an honest agent who’s going to help you achieve your goals, whatever those might be within the real estate market.

My boyfriend and I worked with David Ivy. We spoke to many real estate agents before deciding to go with David and ended up choosing him because he understood our vision and what we wanted. He is a real estate investor himself so if you are looking for someone who also understands the investing side of the business I definitely recommend David!

He is a very knowledgeable agent and knows a lot about the Austin housing market. We looked at several places before deciding on our condo, and he always had very insightful information on all the places that we looked at that we weren't aware of (i.e., foundation issues, HOAs, etc.) He was always quick to point out faults in properties that we weren't able to catch which was great because he did everything in our best interest rather than trying to make a sale quickly. We will definitely be using David Ivy again once we start investing in more properties!

My boyfriend and I used David Ivy to buy our first home in Austin. He was great! He answered all of our questions, would find additional information if we requested it and stuck with us as we shifted our location search. We were very happy with David's help along the way. We would definitely recommend him to our friends and family!

David Ivy was excellent and a real professional. We connected via BiggerPockets because my wife and I were trying to sell a home long distance. After speaking with a couple of Realtors, David was friendly and able to help find service professionals to get the home ready for sale long distance. If I ever get back in the rental market in Austin I will definitely use David again.

David Ivy was tremendously helpful to us throughout this entire home buying process. We were first time buyers and purchased a new construction home, which comes with its own unique set of challenges. David made sure we were fully informed every step of the way and also helped us navigate the hurdles that we encountered. He was responsive and accommodating. He helped us go over all the paperwork involved and recommended some great inspectors and lenders that we were happy to give our business too. I would highly recommend David, he was an absolute pleasure to work with.

I worked with David Ivy to purchase a home in Austin and had a great experience! He was very patient and worked hard to get a tough transaction done. My buying process took a long time, and we had a few deals fall apart, but David did not give up!

My wife and I just closed on our first Austin home with the help of David Ivy. David is exactly what you are looking for in a real estate professional. He is extremely knowledgeable, very responsive, and super easy to work with. Whether you are new to Austin or just moving to a new location, David is your guy.

Phillip Battaglia III

Looking to buy a home in Austin is not an easy task, and David Ivy made what is normally a stressful situation much easier than I imagined. He is proactive, hardworking, and knows the industry. In addition, David is fair, honest, and professional. He was willing to go up to bat for his clients, and he helped me save money by using certain negotiation tactics. He was on just as much of a mission as I was on finding my perfect first home. I would encourage anyone to trust him!

Courtney Zentner

David was an absolute pleasure to work with! As first-time homebuyers, we needed guidance through every step of the searching and buying process. David was patient, responsive, and professional, and had thorough knowledge of markets throughout the Austin area. Even when our original plan of purchasing a centrally-located condo changed to searching for a single-family house located north or south, David didn't miss a beat. We've been in our new-to-us home in Wells Branch for a month now, and truly couldn't be happier. We can't recommend David highly enough!

Erin Cutchen

David was a great help in getting my deal closed at the right price. It was a bit complicated but David went the extra mile utilizing the resources at his disposal expertly. I will definitely work with David again on future real estate opportunities.

Jon Biggs

I worked with David to sell my investment property near downtown Austin. He was able to recommend a good stager as well as a photographer, which made the place look great both in person and online. We got multiple offers in just the first couple of days and ended up accepting a cash offer that weekend for above asking price. We had a relatively tight deadline for closing, but David worked to make sure everything went smoothly in getting there. I feel fortunate to have worked with David, as I was initially unsure about whether to stage and exactly what price to ask. David's recommendations were spot on, and he played a key role in getting the property sold quickly and for above asking.
