David Zavaletta


David Zavaletta is a real estate agent in the Austin metro area and a former luxury hotelier with international experience. David is a musician and collaborator at heart; he grew up in South Texas and moved to Austin in 1999 where he graduated from UT and held positions in finance and operations with Omni Hotels for nearly a decade.

He went on to pursue graduate studies in tourism and business in Switzerland, where he excelled to the top of his graduating class and continued building his brand by playing a key development role in a Swiss-based tourism technology start-up, a luxury passenger transport company and consulted for the owner in the potential sale of one of the largest ski chalets in Switzerland. The chalet, a 25+ room masterpiece of Swiss engineering and one of the very rare chalets of its size approved for foreign ownership, remains a hidden gem and one of David's more unique pocket listings. Further proving his capacity for successfully managing a diverse client base across cultures, David was a key figure as buyer's agent and consultant in the development of a 300 acre tactical training and outdoor sports ranch in the nearby Bastrop area, also one of his more interesting pocket listings.

David spent almost 4 years living abroad with his wife and two children, and in 2014, he and his family moved back to Austin. He then began working as a real estate agent for a UT campus-area firm specializing in investments, leasing and property management, gaining valuable insight into the intricacies of the Austin investment market.

David believes in the power and importance of emotional intelligence and is an avid proponent of a holistic, full-service approach to real estate, using both market data and his interpersonal skills drive successful transactions. He is a relationship-builder and finds strength, energy, and stamina from the intensely satisfying art of bringing two parties together towards a common goal.

In his free time, David enjoys going on walks and playing games with his kids at their home in Cedar Park, playing in a local band and customizing vintage guitars, attending mystery shows with his wife, as well as swimming, skiing, and hiking.

This was the second time we worked with David Zavaletta. He was extremely knowledgeable of the Austin market, and he guided us through the numerous procedures with calm authority. He was always timely and courteous in his responses to our many questions. I highly recommend him to others.

My daughter moved in August 10, 2016 with the help of David Z., the agent who takes his job seriously and professionally. David located one of the best located large condo units in west campus. The unit was super clean upon arrival, the docs digitally signed, they added roommate easily, and communication always clear. I have leased many places and still always have questions to get clarity. This company was always patient with questions.

David helped me and my partner find a home in Clarksville. From the first meeting with him, I trusted him. He is very knowledgeable and willing to go the extra mile to help you find the ideal place. My partner and I were both very stressed as we had a very small amount of time to find somewhere before we left the country. Helpful advice and always being easily reachable meant this was somewhat alleviated. We ended up doing most of the paperwork remotely as we found out the day we were leaving, no fault of David's, the place we had crossed our fingers for was still on the market. No problem says, David! And it wasn't. He was in constant contact with us updating us as to what we needed to do and sending all the paperwork over. He worked with the owner explaining our situation and made it all run as smoothly as possible. I feel like we are in exactly the place we wanted to be in. My partner came back before me alone and David was on hand to help with all the final move in details. I can't recommend David enough. Moving is stressful and difficult in Texas. David guided us through it all making it so much easier!! Communication A+++++ Easy to get hold of A+++++ Trustworthy A+++++ Reliable A+++++

David was tireless in his efforts to find me the right house. I had a list of must haves and David kept working hard to find me what I was looking for and to explain the market and the quirks of Austin home hunting.

Thanks for all your efforts, David!

David helped me and two housemates find a place this year before we started school. We were completely unprepared for the Austin real estate market but he patiently led us through the process. On our first trip, he took us to several properties and we found one, but the deal fell through (for reasons out of his control)... so he worked with us over the following month, keeping us up to date on new properties as they became available.

On our following trip, he spent his whole Saturday taking us around multiple properties and filling out the necessary paperwork with us. He asked all the right questions at the properties and we really felt like we had an advocate on our team.

Thanks for all your help, Dave!
