Jeffrey Schnabel

Jeffrey Schnabel

Broker Associate

As an experienced Broker, Jeffrey’s learned that it's much more important to focus on the individual and not the property. His mantra - "Representing People, Not Properties" - is real estate the way it should be. He never forgets that you're the one buying and/or selling real estate. He’s not here to "sell" you, he’s here to represent your best interests in the process of you buying and/or selling a home, land, or investment property. Jeffrey is 100% transparent, ensuring that you have access to all available information, helping you make the right decisions.

If you’re a buyer, Jeffrey is the one giving you the right perspective about a property you have interest in. In fact, much more often than not, Jeffrey happens to be the one telling you why a property is not a good buy, instead of trying to convince you why you should buy it. That way you can focus on the few properties that really matter to you, the ones that will meet your needs, and be a good investment. Face it, this will be one of your largest investments you will ever make, and you want someone telling you both the good and the bad of any property you’re interested in.

If you’re a seller, Jeffrey will develop a make-ready and marketing plan designed to get your home, land, or investment property sold for the highest possible price, in the shortest amount of time possible. Just as important, Jeffrey will execute to that plan with his own expertise, and his time tested vendor resources, to help prepare your home for sale (regardless of condition), stage it well, create a best-in-class photo and video tour, develop quality floor plans, get it advertised both in print, and online, not only in the local Multiple Listing Service, but also syndicated in nearly all of the available internet search sites, including a social online presence second to none. You’ll see professional ad quality flyers and other hardcopy and online promotional material to get your home noticed, regardless of market conditions.

All of this effort requires the ability to plan, and to execute to that plan. Jeffrey has more than 2 decades in a very successful technology career that included systems & product development, product management & product marketing, customer sales & service, and executive leadership in large corporate & small startup environments. During his technology career Jeffrey was also involved in buying and selling real estate, focused on renovating and resale for profit.  His second career as a real estate broker was a natural next step and he’s achieved similar success and continues to deliver best-in-class planning and execution to all his clients, past, present, and future.

Finally, Jeffrey never allows a conflict of interest to exist in his job of representing your best interests. He will NEVER represent another party in the same transaction as the one he is representing you in.  He does not represent builders, developers, nor large investors who often control a large block of properties in a given area. He does NOT accept bonuses, nor incentives from another party. His referral network of contractors is selected based on a balance of high quality and affordable prices, and he does NOT accept kickbacks from any of his vendors, nor do they pay him any advertising fees. Again, nothing gets in the way of his job, always representing your best interests.

Nothing says all this better than testimonials from his clients. Please check out his testimonials page, and if you want to talk to ANY past client (not just a few glowing ones), Jeffrey will provide you with his entire list of past clients and let you decide whom to talk to.

Contact Jeffrey for any questions about the greater Austin metropolitan area, including specific neighborhoods, or surrounding cities, like Bee Cave, Buda, Driftwood, Dripping Springs, Cedar Park, Georgetown, Kyle, Lakeway, Leander, Manor, Pflugerville, Rollingwood, Round Rock, WestLake Hills, Wimberley, and many other areas.

As always, Jeff has been fantastic. A complete professional that we trust with our house buying and selling needs.

I worked with Jeffrey Schnabel after being referred to by realtor I had previously used when I purchase my home. I could not have been happier with the recommendation. His approach to marketing my house was definitely outside of the box and I really think that is what pushed me ahead of the competition. My home was under contract with an offer over asking within four days. Moreover, from the option period until closing Jeffrey was intimately involved and communicated updates continuously. All in all, I was extremely happy and will use Jeffrey again on future occasions.

Jeffrey is an exceptional real estate professional. His knowledge and expertise provided us with a tremendous amount of comfort during a lot of uncertainty in the home selling process. I particularly liked how he takes time to evaluate and research issues. It was clear his methodology and market analysis helped us get top dollar for our home. His attention to detail in document review ensured a smooth selling process at closing. We are recommending Jeffrey to all our family and friends.

I have known Jeffrey since early 2013 when I first moved to Austin. I have had the unique pleasure of engaging Jeffrey first as a buyer's agent and second as a seller's agent. Jeffrey has surpassed all my expectations and then some in both these roles. I have only terrific things to say about Jeffrey's capabilities, knowledge, integrity, execution, and professionalism. In each of these disciplines, I would give Jeffrey a score of 18 on a scale of 1 to 10. Right from my first phone call Jeffrey has always taken the time to understand my realty needs, paying great attention to details, never once being pushy or dismissive, has always been extremely friendly and a thorough professional. During the buying process, Jeffrey has been very patient throughout the stressful process. His advice, tips, and valuable insights about the pros and cons of each property, property location etc. were priceless and went a long way in helping me decide about the property I bought. Jeffrey always took the time to show me properties that I showed interest in. Jeffrey went out of his way to make himself available for the endless questions I had for him. Similarly, during the selling process, Jeffrey has been spectacular. First, when we decided to list my property for sale, Jeffrey took extra trouble to add staging furniture and made my unit look pristine. Secondly, Jeffrey went above and beyond in putting together the MLS marketing pictures, description, and videos for my unit and made my unit even more appealing to buyers. Jeffrey's hard work paid off big time when I received an offer from a buyer on the FIFTH day since we listed. Ever since I accepted that buyers offer, Jeffrey was instrumental in guiding me through the closing process and kept me informed during the various stages of the option period, inspection, lender approval, and appraisal etc. Again, Jeffrey made himself available and answered all my questions well beyond his office hours and over weekends. I tip my hat off to Jeffrey for his effort, drive, integrity, and dedication. I owe my realty success to Jeffrey's diligence and commitment. I would recommend Jeffrey's services to all my friends and family in a heartbeat. One should consider themselves fortunate if they get an opportunity to work with Jeffrey Schnabel - the super Realtor agent. I wish him the very best in all future endeavors.

Hmmm...what to say about Jeffery Schnabel. Just let me start by saying that my girlfriend and I were first time home buyers. We really didn't know much about it or what to expect. When we started looking for houses in January we did the proverbial "my friends LOVED their realtor, you should really use them". And so we did. Big mistake. Then we decided to go with a family friend! Yea that was a terrible idea too. Sorry guys, never use friends or family as a realtor. Then we found Jeffrey. After reading his great reviews I decided to give him a call. I couldn't have ended up more thrilled with that choice. From day one, we sat down in his office and he asked what we wanted out of a house. Of course we underestimated what we could really spend and had a giant list of specifics. Jeff sat there patiently and listened and would chime in here and there with a question that we hadn't thought of yet. Then he told us, "Look, sometimes people may have an issue with the way I help as a realtor because I'm going to tell you like it is. You're going to come to me and I'm going to tell you what you DONT want more than what you think you want." And that was exactly what we were looking for. From then on Jeff visited, literally, dozens of homes with us from new builds to resales. Always asking what we liked or didn't like, and trying to hone in on the exact perfect fit for us. He was always patient and always helpful. That's the thing about Jeffrey, he is easily one the most knowledgeable realtors in the business. Whether its construction, pricing of the work, or even plant life! He seems to know it all. And when it came to the buying process, look no further. He had all the answers we needed and even the answers we didn't know we needed! There's no way we could've done this with out him. He's a tough negotiator with the seller and he was with us every step of the way. And it doesn't matter if you're buying a million dollar home or a $250k home like us. He's the best of the best with both! If you're reading this, you'll have hundreds of people telling you which realtor you should get. But please, trust this stranger when I say, don't listen to your friends. Don't listen to your family. Do what's best for you and the beginning of a new life. Use Jeffrey Schnabel. You won't regret it. I guarantee it.

Jeffrey Schnabel was a tremendous help in my home search. Throughout the whole process, he was always available when I needed something, and he was always ready to answer all my questions in details.

It took a long time for me to find a place I like, since I had some very specific area of town in mind. Jeffrey was very patient, he never pressured me and gave me all the tools I needed to search. He even explained how I can best look for places that are for sale by owner. He went beyond the usual responsibilities and as a result I managed to find and purchase a home that was not even on the market yet. By the time we found a home I liked, the market was really on the sellers' side, so we had to do some tough negotiating. Jeffrey handled this very skillfully, and still without pressuring me.

Just when we found this place, I had to go out of town for part of the negotiating/closing process. Jeffrey's assistance was really valuable to help me through every step of it, including advice on inspections and HOA issues and explaining to me in detail how to arrange mobile signing, so that I did not have to fly back to town for the closing.

Given all the difficulties of my search and then being out of town just when we finally found a place I like, I certainly could not have managed all this without Jeffrey's help.

Indeed Jeffrey was a very good agent, very knowledgable, practical, helpful and caring and dedicated. I can only say good things about him. Have already recommended him to friends, and intend to continue doing that as home buying/selling issues come up among our acquaintances.

Jeffrey has really come through for us on yet another real estate transaction, and because of his knowledge, follow through, and professionalism, we will continue to be loyal customers. We will, as always, recommend him highly as he is the best of the best.

We were very fortunate having Jeffrey as our Realtor. He is a real pro, very knowledgeable, and a great communicator. We always felt like Jeffrey was enjoying our search as much as we were. We almost made a big mistake on one property, and it was mainly Jeffrey's hard work during the inspections that brought to light major repairs, which led us to exercise our option and look elsewhere. After looking at lots of properties, we eventually found a wonderful place. Jeffrey helped us negotiate a great price, and we are very pleased with the home.

We would definitely recommend Jeffrey to other buyers.

My wife and I worked with Jeffrey Schnabel as our realtor. The word realtor is not really an accurate description, as if I had to rate him on a scale of 1 to 10, I'd rate him as 15. He exceeded our expectations by a huge margin. As we were completely new to the U.S. real estate market, he took a tremendous amount of time to educate us on the entire process, and help us get comfortable with the quirks of a transaction. He always made himself available whenever we had anything going on, and was always timely to respond to our inquiries and proactively handle the matters regarding our case.

He showed great knowledge of the local market down to the subdivision level, and amazed me with his skills which could make him a house inspector 2-in-1. He paid attention to our needs and preferences, but never tried to influence our decision. We always felt in control, and he presented the facts in such a professional manner, that made me rethink my past experiences with the service industry.

The agonizing process of homebuying in a high-demand market was turned to pleasure when we were able to close on our dream house with his help - we couldn't recommend him enough to colleagues and friends. He earned our highest respect and appreciation, and in some way spoiled us in a good way by providing this outstanding experience to us, newbies.

My parents and I recently had the great pleasure of working with Jeffrey Schnabel. From my very first phone call to him and even now (months after closing), Jeffrey has been nothing but patient, knowledgeable and attentive to our millions and billions of questions. He took the time to understand feng shui- a very important aspect in our home search- and was extremely patient and understanding about the whole thing. He provided us with invaluable input about the location/upkeep of the home/price/resell aspects every time we went to look at homes. Jeffrey is just a hard working, honest man and went above and beyond for us. Quite honestly, everything about this whole experience with Jeffrey was simply amazing. Highly recommend!!!

Jeffrey was great. Both my wife and I were very happy with him as our realtor. Even several months before we hired Jeffrey to help us sell our home, he was more than willing to share his advice and expertise and get us ready to sell our home. He is extremely knowledgeable and really helped us stage and prepare our home for sale. We got so many complements about our home, it was amazing. Jeffrey was there every step of the way and was able to recommend people when we needed to make repairs and/or do some things around the home to help us sell it. Jeffrey also helped us make decisions on the offers we received and how to handle various situations that came up during the sale of our home. He is a very good realtor and I would definitely recommend Jeffrey to anyone looking for a realtor to help sell their home. Thanks Jeffrey very much for all your help.

I have historically bought and sold homes without agents, as technology and a little pro-activity have narrowed the information gap between agents and savvy home buyers/sellers. Working with Jeffrey has completely changed my perception of the value an agent can add to a real estate transaction. He is outstanding.

His knowledge of the market and trends - down to the neighborhood - was incredibly useful, especially when we had to move quickly with offers. When we arrived at different homes it was like having a built-in home inspection with every showing. He spotted issues I would have never picked up that significantly affected the proper valuation of a property. During negotiations, he was pragmatic and relentless on our behalf to make sure we got the best deal possible. Most of all though, he showed a level of professionalism that is not commonly found, and he has become a friend in the process.

The best part of this is that we were previously working with another agent when Jeffrey was trying to earn my business. When he learned this, he still continued to provide relevant information and offer his advice with no expectation in return. When our agent left the area for a couple months for family reasons, we had him take over and, after competing for six homes, are thrilled with the one we landed.

My partner and I moved from Chicago to Austin, and after some research, decided to go with Jeffrey Schnabel from Realty Austin to help us with our home search. Even before leaving Chicago, he had impressed us with his detailed knowledge of the area. It is with his help that we were able to target an area for our search, even when we had never set foot here before. Jeffrey had also helped us by checking out our temporary apartment that we rented on a month-to-month basis during our home search. He took pictures and video that made us feel more comfortable about it being a suitable place for us prior to our arrival. It was something he had offered to do without our asking, and that gave us an idea of how thorough he was throughout the process.

Not only that, he's extremely tech savvy, which we really liked and appreciated, because he could easily do research at showings and when we were ready to place an offer, we could do it quickly with online forms and signature, rather than having to go back and forth with physical documents. It was not only more convenient, but when time is of the essence in a quick-draw housing market, efficiency was essential.

In addition, as a father himself, he offered invaluable advice on the school system, which was our main criteria for our home's location. During the showings, he was frank with the details, and he was helpful in educating us in features of the home and the home-buying process itself, which was new to us. In the end, we went with a FSBO property, and his input had swayed the sellers in leaving us many high-end appliances that we otherwise would have had to purchase ourselves.

Near closing, our lender almost fell through with the closing date and it was Jeffrey's phone calls and letters to the right people that landed us at exactly where we needed to be. In essence, he saved the day! We're very fortunate to have had Jeffrey guide us through this often painful process and in securing us our beautiful new home. It was truly a pleasure to work with him, and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him to anyone else looking for a home in Austin.

My husband and I recently worked with Jeff Schnabel to buy a new home in Austin. I cannot say enough great things about Jeff. He is extremely knowledgeable about the market, neighborhoods, and all the funky Austin housing laws. We are so happy to have had him in our corner and look forward to working with him on all future real estate purchases in Austin. If you are looking for an amazing Realtor...Jeff is your guy!

Laura and Robert Blaser, Facebook Review

Jeffrey, thank you for your endless devotion in helping us find our home. You were more than patient with us as we made this huge decision. We appreciate your time and efforts, and are grateful for all of your expertise.

Maria, Val, Austin, Mia, & Steven V.

Words alone can’t express how thankful we are to have had Jeffrey as our agent during our relocation to Austin! We were first-time home buyers relocating from New England, so making an effective purchase decision in a metro area that were were completely unfamiliar with was extremely daunting! We can safely say that without Jeffrey's guidance, logic, and experience, we would not have found such a wonderful neighborhood or such a fabulously perfect home for our family. Your knowledge and understanding of technology’s ability to assist in your work also gave us such incredible advantages! You would receive new listings in real-time, even as you were escorting us around the neighborhoods of Austin! With three great options in-hand, the real value of having you as our agent became apparent as you leveraged your previous knowledge as an appraiser and led us through a number of strategies that would maximize our buyer value as well as each properties potential for eventual resale. Even when we were faced with a unique investment property that held extremes in both potential value as well as risk, you didn’t hesitate to bring in additional advisors to conduct critical evaluation. So not only did we feel connected to you as our agent, but we felt we also had the support of your extended team. And the outcome could not have been scripted more perfectly, as we ended up with our favorite of the three at our original offer price. Your professionalism is unmatched, and your sense of client service is unparalleled. We truly enjoyed working with you and cannot thank you enough for all that you did to make our first home buying experience a success.

Pete K

Dear Jeffrey, allow me to thank you for the expert job you did for me on my recent home purchase. You truly represent a “buyer’s” interest. Your knowledge of the real estate market and ability to assess the quality of construction made me very comfortable with my successful purchase. Your patience with me, and showing me so many properties and gently guiding me through the locating, negotiating and closing process is very much appreciated. Your attention to detail guaranteed I made a wise decision in purchasing my home. I recommend you to anyone.

Sheila G.

Jeffrey, you will never know how much we appreciate the hard work you have done for us. You went above and beyond what we could ever have hoped for. Know that our days will be better because of you! We love the house and thank you for getting us in it. Thank you.

Emmett & Karla C.

Jeffrey, thank you so much for all of your guidance and help in buying my house. You go above and beyond - you really are like Santa Claus. Especially for a first-time buyer doing it alone, your expertise and kindness made the whole process a lot less terrifying. And I dare say even exciting! I’m thrilled with my purchase. Of course I’m keeping your contact info to give to any friends who might be in the market. But also because I’ll probably call you for help when something breaks! Thank you!

Allison G.

We recently were considering purchasing a home in the Austin area and used the services of Jeffrey Schnabel as our buyer’s agent. Jeffrey spent two days showing us properties in and around Austin. His in depth knowledge of real estate in the area and other pertinent facts was outstanding. Not only was he familiar with the communities in the area, he provided us insight on projected future development and growth, which was important in our decision-making. This was our first and best experience with a buyer’s agent. We were extremely please with the service and information Jeffrey provided us. He did an excellent job and we would highly recommend him to anyone needing the services of a real estate agent.

Frank & Margaret R.

Words can’t express how thankful we are for all the time (and blood and sweat and tears!) and energy that you gave us - it means the world to us and we couldn’t be happier in our new home. Thanks to you for making it all happen.

Brooke K.

I want to commend Jeffrey for the outstanding job he did, and continues to do for us in the purchase of a condo in downtown Austin. Jeffrey continues to follow up with us, four months after the purchase, to check on punch list items and our satisfaction with the progress. When we decided to purchase a condominium for our daughter's time in graduate school, we felt an agent would be in our best interest. We contacted Jeffrey and arranged a two-day visit to look at properties. I must say, his itinerary and preparation were as professional as anything I have experienced.

He has superb knowledge of the Austin real estate market. We tried to evaluate prices in Austin by comparing to North Carolina. Jeffrey was sensitive to our thought process and showed us exactly what we asked for. He had warned us that our expectations were not in line with the reality of Austin pricing. He helped us sort through the process of setting a realistic goal, securing financing, and plans to improve the property for eventual resale. I give the highest possible recommendation to Jeffrey Schnabel.
