Douglas Stewart, MA, literally began his real estate career with hammer in hand so that in the year 2000 after devoting over 25 years to residential construction and remodeling, and 3 years as a business Broker, he became a licensed Texas Realtor® and a Broker in 2005. His passion for education and educating as well as attaining the highest levels of achievement possible in all his endeavors led him to attain the Real Estate Broker license which requires over 900 hours of education in real estate ethics, law, and marketing. Continuing his education, due to his passion for the Spanish language he achieved a Master’s degree in Spanish, which allows him to serve the growing Hispanic population of Texas. Possessing a critical eye for detail and having served hundreds of buyers and sellers during his career, Douglas offers exceptional expertise so that his clients can feel confident about their property investment and of his commitment to help them successfully achieve their ultimate goals. He is a firm and confident negotiator having studied the Harvard Negotiating Projects negotiation skills course work, and is always kind and respectful in his desire to reach a true “win-win” outcome for all parties in a transaction.

Douglas has devoted his career and private life to service and volunteerism and has given countless hours as an ESOL teacher and as a Board member at the Austin Waldorf School where he helped develop the High School initiative and negotiated many of the building acquisitions, relocations, and remodeling needs. He has lived in the hill country west of Austin for approximately 38 years and has developed a deep love of the land and a complete understanding of the systems and infrastructure that are required when purchasing a home or ranch in Dripping Springs, Wimberley, Blanco or Johnson City. He has also worked extensively in the Lakeway and Austin markets throughout his business career.

Douglas is equally at home in the city as in the country and has often been called a true “renaissance man” due to his many avocations which include a once active life as a performing musician, bird watcher and nature lover, hiking in the mountains of Colorado with his wife and daughters, reading and studying Spanish literature, or traveling to Latin American countries to immerse in the culture, food, and language. Practicing the piano and mandolin help him maintain a healthy balance between work and relaxation.

By reading Douglas’ client testimonials one quickly sees how much value his clients place on his service and commitment to them and at the end of the day; this is what matters most in his business!

We enjoyed working with Doug and his assistant Rachel for the acquisition of our home in Wimberley. Doug and Rachel both provided excellent service from the start and even now post-acquisition.

Doug Stewart sold two properties in 3 months for me. Every part of the sale was flawless. I definitely will use Doug and Realty Austin again.

We worked with Douglas Stewart from Realty Austin. Douglas set us up with some listings from the Realty Austin website and my wife, and I choose several homes we wanted to see. Douglas picked us up and drove us to all of the houses on our list before we found the one we wanted to purchase. Douglas was great in handling everything from that point on.

We enjoyed working with Doug. We found the listing online, called requesting to see the property, and Doug was very helpful. He knew a lot about the details of building on the property, wildlife, plants, the neighbors and HOA where we bought. He seemed genuinely happy for our future plans on the property. Doug did a great job for us.

Doug's services were recommended by my son Jason, and he certainly exceeded my expectations. Doug is knowledgeable, communicative and just an all around good guy. I faced this transaction with much trepidation, but he leads me in the right direction. I would certainly recommend Doug's expertise to all!

My experiences in dealing with Douglas Stewart were all very positive. I initially contacted him based on an extremely well-written solicitation letter, and he replied almost instantly, even though he was visiting family out of state. We had a good back and forth over the next several weeks, and I asked that he represent me in selling my property. His expertise in the Wimberley & Burnett Ranch areas was a key factor. He gave me great advice through the sales process and arranged for local service providers to perform any needed work. The property sold for 96.3% of the asking price within a couple of weeks. I could not be happier. At no point did I ever feel like Douglas was taking me for granted or ‘going through the motions.' I would recommend him without reservation to anyone interested in real estate, especially in the Wimberley area.

He was very responsive and efficient - my property was listed for two years by another agent, who was unable to get a buyer. Douglas was able to find a buyer and close the deal after only two months. He was very responsive – he returned calls quickly, gave good advice, and made good recommendations on how to market the property. I would recommend him to my friends and business partners and would ask for him again if the occasion arose.

We inherited Doug from an agent who moved out of state. This was about April or May of 2015. We had determined that we were going to relocate to Sun City, and didn't know anything about the area, demographics, or economics.

One of the most important tools Doug provided was a link to the Realty Austin MLS search engine. We were able to establish various filters to look for properties that met our criteria. As time went by, if we found something that was interesting, we would call Doug and he would meet us in Sun City (which we later learned is a long way from his home) and show us properties.

I can't recall how many properties Doug showed us over the past year, but it was probably more than ten. He gave us a lot of useful information and sent us the Realty Austin newsletter to help learn about Austin area real estate.

Doug was always available by email and by phone when we needed him. He showed us properties on days that he probably would have liked to be doing something with his family. We are so appreciative of his efforts on our behalf.

When we finally found the right property, he got right on the contract. We submitted our offer the same day we viewed the property, and got an acceptance within two days. He (and Rachel) were very helpful in keeping the deal on track, especially when we had some inspection issues. We are very happy about the results of his efforts there.

Doug was with us all the way to closing. We depended on him for a lot... and he came through every time. I will recommend him to everyone I know.

Doug was very helpful when we were trying to sell our house in Lakeway. He was very responsive when we had questions and gave us good advice about what was important to market our house. Doug helped with last minute items that needed to taken care of before settlement and got things accomplished for us, so we could keep working in our business during the busy house selling process.

When we were looking for a new home, Doug quickly made room in his schedule to get us into houses we were interested in and provided information about the area and the neighborhood which was very helpful. We appreciate everything Doug did to make our transition to our new home possible.

My husband and I had the good fortune to work with Doug Stewart in our Austin house search. Doug throughly knows the territory, is deeply knowledgeable, and was a great ally in negotiations - truly professional. His calm demeanor and generosity with his time is really appreciated. He helped us find our retirement home in Driftwood, got us through the purchase process, and provided us with much information about and many recommendations for living in the area. Plus, he is in general an interesting person. We consider Doug the consummate agent. Many thanks, Doug!

My family and I have known Doug a long time. His wife and he live just down the road from the property and knew my parents. He did a very good job and kept my siblings and me informed throughout the process.

Doug Stewart was the realtor who worked with us. This was our first time buying land. He took us through the process, giving us research to back up everything he told us. He is very knowledgable on the process and on land, especially. He is a realtor that we will definitely work with again, soon. He is a very personable person; easy to be around. He is a great asset to this wonderful company. Thank you for all your hard work on our behalf, Doug. God bless you.

My husband and I had a great experience with Doug. He did a great job of handling the sale of our land in Wimberley. We would absolutely recommend and use him again.

We have lived in Wimberley for 25 years plus and through our equipment rental business have the opportunity to know most all of the Realtors in this area... when it was time to ready my mother's home for sale, the choice was a no-brainer. Doug has always stood out as an honest, enthusiastic person with an excellent attitude... Anyway, he was there for us every step of the way, the paperwork was seemless, we could not be more pleased!

I wanted to let you know that Doug did a great job. We came to the area and looked at houses many weekends over a several month period with different members of my family tagging along each time. He understood what I was looking for and was pleasant and helpful to work with. My buying experience could not have been better.

Doug Stewart was a tremendous help in getting our house sold. His knowledge of real estate and the market was very supportive to our accomplishing he objectives set out for this move. We would recommend Doug to anyone selling or buying a home.

I just sold my house and Doug Stewart was totally indispensable. The house needed a lot or work and Doug knew just who to call for answers or repairs. Work that could have taken months was taken care of in weeks. His fluency in Spanish was also helpful in this process. Doug has a great sense of humor and a warm personality that makes working with him a pleasure. I have enjoyed his skills in both buying and selling and would not think of using anyone else.

Selling a house in a good economy takes time and effort; selling a house when the economy turns down takes expertise and dedication. Doug Stewart has what it takes to be successful in all economies. Even as recession loomed and with consumer confidence eroding quickly, Doug managed to get not just one, but two offers on our house, and see the contract through to closing.

Anyone who watches 'Sell this House' knows the amount of effort needed to prepare a house for sale. To prepare the house well requires lots of effort, which for us, was a major hurdle because while our house was on the market in Dripping Springs, we were living in England. Even little fixes represent a major obstacle when you are thousands of miles away. Doug's commitment to selling our property was overwhelmingly evident in his active engagement in setting up agreements with local vendors, validating the quality of work done, and finding opportunities for us to stage our house more effectively.

My husband and I were not new to real estate, and with past successes under our belt, we didn't place as much importance on what realtor we chose. Nine months later, with our house still on the market and no offers in hand, we had to rethink our strategy. We needed local insight with real estate expertise. Doug came recommended by a local contact and with good reason. Under Doug's guidance, we had a strong go to market strategy, regular updates and feedback on the economic situation in Dripping Springs, and the most desirable outcome -- a completed sale on our house!

If you want the best results on the sale of your house, Doug Stewart has the knowledge, expertise and dedication to get them for you.

Susan Zabel

Doug was an incredibly helpful and patient realtor to work with. I flew in from out of town on three separate occasions over the course of two years to first look at property and then at houses. Each time Doug took the time out of his day to drive me around the Hill Country until I found just what I was looking for. His knowledge of the area, the topography, oak wilt, the school systems, and the benefits/challenges of each area we looked is immense. He kept us in our price range and got us just what we wanted, including a smooth and expedient close. I would highly recommend Doug as your realtor of choice!

Jason Surdy

Approximately 2 years ago I was looking for a ranch to create a retreat. Doug was representing the seller on a 40-acre property, which was a diamond in the rough. Doug went out of his way to provide development feasibility information and invaluable contacts for construction. As a result of his enormous knowledge of the area and making improvements, we purchased the land and are now opening our retreat in Wimberley. We looked at about 75 properties with other agents, but nobody provided assistance near the level of his help. Thank you Doug!!!

Mike Turner

I first met Doug Stewart about 4 years ago when I wanted to move to the Hill Country. I found Doug's name online and called him. He met me the following afternoon with listings of the area to show me. Doug was informed, knew the area, and was motivated to show me what I was interested in. Doug was always looking to take care of me and make sure all details were taken care of. I have recommended Doug to my friends and they all were happy with the service that he provides. Doug is a solid professional and cares about his clients. I want to thank Doug for doing his homework and focusing on what I was looking for.

Peter Calamari

Doug made our real estate purchase more enjoyable by his extensive knowledge of the area in which we wanted to purchase and his high level of professionalism.

Susan and Joe Black

The attention Doug gave to my property search was above and beyond. His knowledge of Real Estate made a difficult (HUD) negotiation very easy. Not only was my real estate transaction successful, but Doug helped me learn a lot as well. I would refer Doug any day to anyone. His professionalism and knowledge of real estate enabled me to make my first time home purchase. Doug's patience and love for his job made the home that I bought exactly what I was looking for.

Brad Loggins

Doug helped us sell two investment properties. He gave great advice on pricing, presentation, and the market. Doug is totally trustworthy and works hard for the sale!

Jimmy and Annabel Harwell

Doug Stewart has been my realtor for both buying and selling real estate in the hill country and I highly recommend him to anyone needing help buying or selling. His knowledge and love of the area really show in his efforts which were impressive, no matter what the size of the transaction. Doug will be my first choice for any future help with buying or selling real estate.

Noel Bell

We were so thankful we are to have had Doug Stewart handle the sale of our property in Dripping Springs TX. As we look back, it was a great day we met in his office to introduce ourselves. It was a great day when he came to our place and signed a contract to have his company sell our house. His professional advice on price comps for similar homes in the area was right on, and the advice on how to clean up the property acreage for sale made a big difference. Best of all, to sell our property in twenty one days is unbelievable. We assumed that it would take several months for such a large home. Even though we felt that our house was in great shape, twenty one days is still unbelievable. The intricacies of the purchase of our condo required fortitude and expertise. I cannot thank Doug enough for the hard work on the above referenced sale and purchase. We can tell you for sure that recommending Doug to anyone would be a pleasure.
