Jéan Bruns

REALTOR®

Growing up in Austin, Jean has seen Austin’s market growth first hand and gained many valuable ties to the community. After graduating from Texas Tech University with a degree in Finance & Marketing, he held several leadership roles in the hospitality industry across the country. It is through these years of experience he mastered the art of serving the individual needs of all types of clients. He truly loves to serve others. Jean’s personal success in real estate investments drove his move to the industry full time.

Jean is a resident of the historic Clarksville neighborhood in Central Austin. It's not just Clarksville's prime downtown location that attracted him, but its rich American history. Clarksville was the first freedom town west of the Mississippi, and the oldest one still standing. It was founded by freedman Charles Clark in 1871. Jean maintains a garden plot behind The Haskell House on Waterston Avenue, which is on the National Historic Registry.

One of his favorite things to do on his day off is explore the market while on a long run. He feels he gains a unique perspective of the area by getting up close and personal. He lives by the credo: “Fortune favors the brave.”

Wow, where to begin? Jéan Bruns is a gem of a human. My husband and I felt like we were working with a friend. We've just moved to Austin from abroad, and we knew we wanted to buy a house quickly. Our friends highly recommended Jéan, so we didn't even waste time shopping around. From the first contact, Jéan was warm, friendly, professional, direct, and deeply knowledgeable about the Austin market. My husband and I knew we wanted to live centrally but in a family-friendly neighborhood with great schools, and Jéan listened and gave feedback when asked. He set up some searches for us months before we relocated, and set us up with a couple of great loan providers so we could secure pre-approval for financing.

When we were finally in Austin and ready to get serious about our search, Jéan was on hand and accommodating when we wanted to arrange viewings. I think we looked at about ten houses in total and put down two offers. We got outbid on the first one, and Jéan called to deliver the bad news. He was positive and encouraging, which helped us to keep going and not get too down about it.

We found our house after maybe six weeks of seriously searching, and Jéan moved quickly for us. The house had been listed for a few hours when he got us in for a viewing, and we put an offer in that evening. He let us determine the proper bid and option fee but advised us when asked. Everything after that moved quickly, from the inspection to the appraisal to closing, and Jéan was always on hand for a quick call or advice. I'm sure Jéan has multiple clients at once, but he makes you feel like you're his only one. He was a pleasure to work with from beginning to end. Highly recommended!

Jéan Bruns is the best Realtor I've worked with. He was very honest and straight to point, which I really appreciate. I hired him for my first home sale, and it could not have gone better. He made sure the place was show-ready and referred his contractors to me, which was super helpful since I didn't have time to research, and I live in Houston. We had an offer the first day it was on the market, and the transaction went very smoothly. I'm glad I listened to Jean's advice and would recommend anyone in the Austin area to use him. He even helped me out by returning my cable box for me! What a guy! Great personality too!

I couldn't imagine a better Realtor than Jéan Bruns. He is Realty Austin's biggest advocate, and it's truly amazing what he is able to provide for you as a Realtor. He will get you the best deal on the right house for you, and his knowledge and opinions are invaluable. Furthermore, he genuinely cares about you, and it's extremely evident how much he loves what he does. I'll be recommending Jéan to anyone I know looking for a house in Austin. Nicole Herrera is also wonderful, she streamlines all communication and is so quick to respond!

My husband and I had a wonderful experience with Jéan at the helm of our search for the perfect ATX home. He was consistently on top of new and “coming soon” listings that met our criteria 100% of the time. We highly recommend him for anyone’s real estate matters, and he most definitely helped us find our DREAM HOME! We are very pleased!

I had the pleasure of working with Jéan Bruns from Realty Austin as my Realtor. This was my first experience purchasing a home, and I can't imagine it would have gone as well as it did without Jéan's help. From the email introduction to closing and beyond, Jéan was there with me every step of the way taking the time to explain everything in terms that a first time home buyer could easily digest. He is very knowledgeable about the different areas and points of interest scattered around Austin, so when you go to look at homes with him you also get the benefit of knowing a bit about the surrounding community. The process starts by giving him an idea of which areas or type of areas you're interested in as well as a price range. From there he helps pull up a list of homes that are available and you're able to choose which ones interest you so you can tour them. The info is used not only to narrow down your options but also to be able to use that information to look at homes in locations you may not have previously heard about. When touring the homes he is also very candid and gives honest advice about each place. I am without a doubt happy that Jéan was there to help me find a home and play such a huge part in an important life decision. When I next start looking into homes in Austin, I know who I'll be contacting.

This is the second time I have used Jéan Bruns in 6 months. Once to sell my home, and now to buy a new home. Jéan went above and beyond to make sure we were happy with our decision. He walks the properties and looks for potential issues and investigates what he can. He truly cares about his clients. When the time comes again in a few years when I hopefully have the funds to get my little place in the country Jéan will be my go-to guy again.

After having sold and bought several properties through Jéan Bruns I can give an honest five-star rating. Jéan was able to obtain the maximum price on the sale of my property through very strategic marketing and outreach. He is adept at negotiating and presentation. I have also purchased a couple of rental properties with Jéan. He is very knowledgeable about prime rental areas. Additionally, he is organized and has a great team to make the process of selling or buying seamless.

Jéan was great as usual. He did a fantastic job selling a tough property and helped me get the best price possible on the property. Jéan was outstanding, and I highly recommend him and Realty Austin.

We were so incredibly lucky to work with Jéan Bruns. In a hot and very competitive market, Jéan found us our incredible dream cottage in an off-market deal, a charming three-two that was everything we could have hoped for. Jéan was patient, helpful and so fun to work with. He completely "got" what we wanted, always sending us homes with built-in character and top-notch locations before they ever came to market. With Jéan, I never felt pressured, only confident that he had our best interests in mind every step of the way. Not only did we get a great Realtor, but we also got a great friend. I would highly recommend working with Jéan.

My husband and I were very happy with Jéan as our Realtor. It was our first time buying a house together, although my husband had previously owned a house. Jéan told us at our initial meeting that his style is typically more hands-off, and I asked him to be a little more hands-on for us because as a first-time home buyer, I needed more guidance. And he did! Jéan responded to our requests for information very quickly and really helped us narrow down our options. He was not at all pushy or aggressive. And best of all, he shared his opinions about the houses we looked at, which improved my trust in him! Finally, when it came down to the nitty-gritty details of negotiations and preparation for closing, Jéan was there for us every step of the way and effectively fought for our interests. I hear buying a house can be a harrowing experience, but with Jéan, it was easy and fun. He really is the best!

I can't say enough positive things about Realty Austin and in particular Jéan Bruns! As a first time home-buyer in an aggressive Austin market, I was stunned to have such a seamless and positive experience from start to finish. I never felt pressured but instead felt like Jéan was 100% looking out for my best interest and clearly understood my buying goals. He exceeded my expectations and made those “crazy buying” stories about how hard the process becomes nothing more than a tall tale. I highly recommend Jéan for any future RE transactions.

Jéan Bruns recently helped us sell our home. Jéan was a knowledgeable and professional agent. He priced our house just right and helped with recommendations on what would help us sell it faster. We had an offer on our house 7 hours and over asking price after it went on the market! We couldn't believe it! He helped us the entire way through the selling process and dealing with very particular buyers. He also helped my mother find the PERFECT condo! She couldn't be happier. I would recommend Jéan and Realty Austin to any of my friends and family. I trust his opinion and knowledge about the market and value of a home. I will definitely hire Jéan for my next home purchase endeavor.

I cannot say enough about how happy we are to have had him represent us in what can be a very stressful time. Jean was courteous, professional, and a pleasure to work with. He knew the market and location perfectly. Our house was priced right, and the sale was quick and prompt. Hopefully Jean will be our Realtor for life as well as a Realtor for many of our friends and colleagues.

Jéan was an absolute pleasure to work with and was very professional. I will be using him again as well as referring him to all my friends and family!!! Kudos to Realty Austin and Jéan!

Jéan was very helpful during my home buying experience. He had a wealth of knowledge when looking at homes, what to look out for, red flags, etc. He was also very helpful during closing when the builder had not done the work they said they would. Jéan made all the difficult phone calls to the builder and their sales agent in an effort to reach an agreement. I would definitely recommend Jéan to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.

My family and I are so grateful for the support and guidance we received during the home buying process. Jean Bruns is nothing short of amazing! Last year, my husband and I decided to move to Austin from Virginia. My husband received a job here in November. In the fall, I asked a good friend who lived here if she could recommend a Realtor since she had recently moved from the east coast and purchased a home. She recommended Jean! Jean and I communicated a lot via email and phone before actually meeting (since I was still in VA). By the time we met in person, we felt like we had known him for years. Jean is very knowledgeable about the Austin area; he is approachable, he takes the time to listen and get to know your list of needs and wants, he is punctual, he responds to messages promptly, is an amazing advocate, is patient and caring. While I have heard horror stories from other people about the buying process, we cannot relate in any way! Jean helped to make the process so smooth. We found our forever home, and it suits all of our needs and wants! And we are so thankful that Jean was a part of that process from beginning to end. Jean is a highly talented, experienced and savvy Realtor! We will definitely recommend Jean to others because we are confident that he will help them to find their dream home!

It's with 100% honesty that I can say Jéan exceeded our expectations at every point along the journey from looking at houses, to making an offer, helping us find a mortgage company, requesting repairs, closing and answering my 10 million questions. And on top of it all, his gifts at closing were so unexpected and greatly appreciated. We've already recommended Jéan to a co-worker who is going to be looking for a new place in the coming months.

Jéan Bruns helped me find an amazing home and really went to bat for me when it came time to negotiate. I can't emphasize enough how helpful it was to have someone there every step of the way - and I mean every inspection, every email, every interaction. I learned that when you're buying a home, it's very valuable to use a real estate agent who is hyper-focused on taking as much of the burden off of your shoulders. I would absolutely recommend Jéan to anyone looking for a home or even an apartment.

Jean was great throughout the whole process and very patient with us as we changed up our house strategy a few times. He is very knowledgeable about the market and had our best interests in mind the whole time. We would definitely recommend him to others and hope he has an even better 2017.

Jean Bruns went above and beyond to make sure we got the house of our dreams. He's an exceptional communicator, a heck of a negotiator and an all-around spectacular person. We couldn't be more thankful to have had such exemplary professionalism on our side. Here's to a lifelong partnership!

After I saw Jean Bruns on HGTV's Tiny House Hunters I selected him as my agent, best decision ever. Jean was a delight to work with on the purchase of my first home. His knowledge of the city and attention to detail made my home search a breeze. Growing up in Austin certainly gives him an edge in our hectic real estate market. I definitely recommend Jean for all of your real estate needs, you won't regret your decision.
