Joe Cummings is an exceptional agent! My husband and I are so very, very lucky to have worked with him on buying/selling our home. He is from Austin so his knowledge is valuable and no question goes unanswered. I tend to be fairly intense, so I really appreciate Joe's friendly and courteous manner in all his dealings; really best described as the Texan way! He also helped my parents purchase a condo last year, and if I could teach them how to post a review they would give him five stars as well!

I would like to really say that Joe is truly an exceptional agent. Besides his knowledge and availability, what I appreciated most is his friendly and courteous manner in all his dealings. He's like a part of the family now. I don't think we would ever consider another agent as long as he is in Austin! He's the best.

Joe Cummings is the best realtor ever. He is compassionate and truly concerned with helping you find the right home for you. I could not have asked for a better experience. I moved from Houston to Austin; it was a HUGE move for me on multiple levels and Joe made sure I found the right place and basically held my hand through the whole process.

I can't say enough good things about Joe. Another client of his recommended him word of mouth, and he more than lived up to the endorsement. He was attentive, always responsive, answered all of our questions (even the silly ones), and made sure we had all the resources we needed to complete this journey. We both felt that throughout the process we gained a real friend. He was completely professional while also making us feel like we could call him anytime just to chat. He showed us houses on weekends and even got up early to meet us at 8 am for the final walkthrough since our flight was delayed yesterday, and we missed the appointment.

I could go on and on about how great he is, and I will if you want to hear more, but I will end this by saying I've already recommended him to two friends who are thinking of purchasing homes in the next year or so. We couldn't imagine going through this process with anyone else, and I'm glad we didn't have to.

Joe Cummings has been wonderful to deal with. Helpful, friendly, prompt, and knowledgable all apply to him. I feel his sincerity in trying to help us. We recommend him and would use him again if the occasion arises.

I don't think there are enough complimentary and thankful words to describe the service provided by Joe. Joe more than exceeded our expectations, he went out of his way to accommodate us in every aspect and patience he showed with potential buyers and how he kindly held our hand during this process. Joe is such a personable, kind, professional and informed Realtor. His knowledge on creative marketing, ideas on making our house more appealing to potential buyers and how the complete house selling process plays it is amazing. He is the best and we are so pleased with Joe - we now count him as a friend. We will recommend Joe to any others who may be placing their house on the market. We believe Realty Austin has an amazing, wonderful and well-informed employee on your staff. He's the best.

As first time home buyers, we did not know what to expect from the home buying process. Over the years, our friends have warned us about the challenges that we would face during the process, but that was not our experience with Joe. Joe was recommended to us by a colleague and we arranged to meet with him. From the very beginning Joe gave us a lot of great information about the different aspects of the process and how we could best prepare so that when the time came, we would be able to submit an offer and experience minimal hold ups. After speaking to Joe, we knew that we wanted him to be our Realtor, he really made us feel that our best interests would be his priority. When we decided to put an offer in on our home, Joe acted quickly to get everything turned around the same day. We were able to get our credit and mortgage approval through, get an offer in and Joe pushed for a response the same day. It all came together smoothly, with minimal effort from us. Joe kept us posted through the day so that we knew the status of everything. Following the home inspection, and all the way through closing, Joe kept us updated on the process and made sure we had all the information we needed. After closing, he made it clear to us that if we have any questions going forward that we are welcome to contact him. We are truly grateful to Joe for making what could have (and usually is for many people) a stressful experience, a smooth and easy process. We will definitely be recommending him to our friends.

Joe Cummings is the most professional, courteous and just plain super fantastic Realtor in Austin, Texas. He made every aspect of our experience pleasant even when he had to deliver less than happy news. I regularly recommend him to anyone looking for a Real Estate professional. Realty Austin is lucky to have someone of Joe's caliber representing their business!

I can tell you that Joe went above and beyond in providing Exemplary Customer Service. We've never experienced the level of service and attention to detail that Joe provided during the whole buying process. We've dealt with multiple real estate agents in our lifetime and never had the level of service that Joe provided to us. Thanks Joe for all your hard work on behalf of us and for taking good care of us!

To say Joe is an exemplary agent doesn't fully describe his service. Joe's service and guidance has been invaluable. He has provided advice and information which has assisted us in making informed decisions. Joe's personality is golden. He immediately put us at ease and made us feel as though we were his only client. We would definitely recommend Joe to others. Realty Austin has a top-notch, diamond of an employee in Joe. He is an amazing person.

Joe Cummings of Central Realty Austin has been a dream to work with. He has helped us buy a home, rent a home, and sell a home. When we were on the fence and thinking about selling our old place, he encouraged us to take advantage of Austin's booming rental market, even though he could have made more money if we had sold. The next year we sold the same place for much more than we would have previously.

He is a great communicator, making sure everybody is on the same page, and returns phone calls and emails promptly (which is what lead us to work with him). When showing homes, he is super friendly, not pushy at all, and if you'd like, will give an honest critique of how he thinks a property would work or not work for your needs. During the buying process, he gave us great advice and really advocated for us, pushing for discounts that we would not have gotten without him. Highly recommended!

Realty Austin is great, but we will follow Joe wherever he goes!

We have bought and sold 7 homes and utilized agents every time. Never have we experienced the level of customer service that Joe provided to us during the sell of our home. Joe highly exceeded our expectations in every aspect (start to finish) of the process during our interactions with him. I can tell you and have shared with Joe that he has and will get referrals from us as the real estate agent that our family and friends should use for their transactions. Thanks again Joe for taking good care of us!

Joe was awesome to work with. It was my first time buying and he helped me with every step along the way and took lots of time out of his day to answer and help explain anything that I needed. He was first class in everything from returning calls, emails, documents, etc. If I buy a place in Austin again, it will be through Joe.

Joe is absolutely amazing, no other way to put it.


December 2014

Two years ago we decided to buy a house in Austin for investment and eventual retirement. Intrigued by Realty Austin's website, we called and spoke with Joe Cummings explaining to him what we were looking for at the time - knowing very little about Austin, especially the real estate market. Joe was so very helpful in our search, giving us insight into both Austin real estate-wise and as a city.

Throughout the two years we talked to him about several properties we were interested in, however they were not quite what we were looking for which Joe helped us realize. Finally we found the house in Lakeway, which Joe made happen for us. From picking us up at the airport to the final signing, Joe was there for us. He was always available to answer questions and offer recommendations any time of day.

Joe worked closely with the other parties involved making sure that everyone was in communication and that the escrow process ran smoothly - adding in Joe's patience, charm and professionalism. He's the kind of realtor everyone should want.

We're so looking forward to our eventual move to Austin!

Joe has many qualities as a Realtor that we found to be invaluable. The ones most important to us were his honesty, reliability, availability, responsiveness, and his willingness to build a relationship, and Joe has them all. He continuously impressed us with his impeccable memory. He would recall things we said and used those to help find properties he thought we'd like. And he was right more often than not.. He always paid attention, made himself available to us at all times via phone, email, or text, and understood what was important to our family.

He was also one of the few Realtors we've used who actually suggested properties that he thought would be a good fit. Previous Realtors would rely on us to tell them which houses we wanted to see. Joe was active in our search. He made us feel like he wanted us to find a home, the right home. When we were with Joe, he made us feel like we were his only client and that he was just fine spending as much time looking at houses as we needed.

There isn't one thing I would change about Joe. Not one thing I wish he would've done differently. We still think and laugh at some of our time together because, as mentioned before, he turned out to be a good friend and in our opinion, a friend is someone you spend your time laughing with.

Not only would we call on Joe to help us sell/buy another house, we tell everyone who'll listen that they have to make him their Realtor and that he would be the easiest decision they will make throughout their home buying process.

I am happy we found him as our Realtor and grateful that he became our friend.

Joe did an extraordinary job helping us over the last year (or more). For every hurtle that we had to pass, he was there for us. Always understanding and informative and always around when we needed him. We would recommend him to any of our family and friends. We are very thankful that the process is over but sad that we don't get to spend more time with Joe!

As first time homebuyers the learning curve has been steep! Our Realtor, Joe Cummings, who is a native Austinite like myself was awesome at helping us with the process. Joe made himself available around our schedules when possible. He was very helpful with setting up searches on the Realty Austin website, which seemed more comprehensive than many other realty websites that I looked at. I never felt rushed or pushed into any decisions with buying a house. Joe is incredibly patient and he went above and beyond in terms of offering ideas and recommending folks that could inspect the house, do renovations in the future, etc. (In hindsight, I'm not sure I would go with an inspector recommended by any Realtor just to be on the safe side.) I don't think we were the easiest couple to deal with in terms of not being pleased with several options given that we have champagne tastes on a beer budget. I would use him again and happily recommend Joe to friends and family.

Joe Cummings was such a joy to work with! He fought for us every step of the way and because of him we are now in our dream home.

Words truly cannot express what an amazing experience it was working with Joe! He helped us find our dream home and we are forever grateful! His expertise in the real estate field is second to none. He is personable and funny. We always looked forward to seeing him. He made us feel like we were his top priority and was available for whatever we needed. He was recommended to us by a friend and we would HIGHLY recommend him to anyone needing a Realtor. Joe Cummings ROCKS!

Joe Cummings was referred to me by a good friend last year. When I contacted Joe he was very friendly, returned my phone calls and emails quickly, and was there to show me houses when asked. I would and do recommend Joe to my family and friends.

Joe went above and beyond our expectations and we are very pleased with the sell of our old house and the purchase of the brand new home. Joe is a great asset to your company. He is very compassionate , knowledgeable and knows what he is doing.  Very pleased and blessed to know a person as genuine as him.

I had the pleasure of working with Joe Cummings during my two and half long search for a home in a crazy housing market. He was a recommendation from my sister and I couldn't have been happier with my experience. Joe went out of his way to accommodate my me and my fiancé's crazy schedules and always made himself conveniently available. This was my first time purchasing a home and Joe went out of his way to explain every part of the process. He even answered my late night calls when something wasn't entirely clear, and if he didn't have an answer he knew where to get it and got back to me quickly. In short. Joe is amazing and I will be working with him again on my next home!

Joe's preparedness, organization and professionalism I would consider unmatched as compared to other Realty professionals that I have dealt with in the past. He was a pure joy to work with and constantly provided me support and recommendations on the overall sales process, timelines and opportunities.

It felt like we were a team and worked together very well which made the experience a good one. I believe that the preparation work that we did made the difference in the very quick sale of my property. You can be assured that I will always recommend Joe to anyone at any time that needs help with the Austin real estate market.

Rhonda Ringness Greene

We were very pleased with Joe Cummings as our real estate agent. He was always courteous and helpful. When things did not go exactly right with the sellers, Joe was on our side and worked to make things right. He stayed on top of our concerns with a calm attitude and made sure that we were completely satisfied. Thanks, Joe!

Richard M. Gilman, Facebook Review

Joe Cummings did an outstanding job with selling our home. He was able to sell our house in 12 days. He's the best realtor we've ever worked with. Thank you so much!

Jason & Leslie Manilla

Joe Cummings did a great job for me and I highly recommend him to anyone looking for a place to live. Coming from a long way away he helped me get to know the area, find a rental and finally find a great place for me to buy. He not only was patient with me and very helpful to me but he also helped the seller's agent get many things done. That agent was from outside the city and without Joe's facilitation of several items I'm sure the final details of the purchase would have gone much, much slower. Joe is very knowledgable, prompt and courteous. All wonderful attributes in an agent.

Overall, I am very satisfied with his work for me. I will highly recommend him to others.

Kitty McMahon

I've known Joe Cummings for several years now, and I am very happy to call him both my real estate agent and my friend. A few years back, Joe helped me juggle selling a house in Round Rock while our new house was being built in East Austin. Trying to sell a house in the suburbs at that time during the recession was very stressful, but Joe was relentless in doing whatever it took to get the old house sold in time to close on the new one being built. He is very determined, action-oriented, and gets results!  He recently came through for us yet again, as we had to move to East Texas and needed to lease our house.  He not only got it leased, but he found us the perfect tenants as well! Joe is gifted with a rare combination of determination and kindness, and his personality & professionalism will impress even the most discerning of clients.

Donnie Lane

When we were looking for a house to rent for our family of five, Joe Cummings responded the same day to our request for a showing. That ended up being the only house we needed to see. A few weeks later, we moved in. Joe's responsiveness to all our inquiries was matched by his willingness to facilitate our lease agreement any way he could, meet with us at times and locations that were convenient to us, and showed generosity with his time in addressing our concerns.

Reem & Ibrahim Elghonimi

I am not sure how I can properly describe Joe in just a few sentences. I would consider him to be a great guy to have on your side when purchasing a home. He is always looking out for his buyers making sure they are getting the best deal and the best service. As a lender I work with many Realtors but Joe is one I would HIGHLY recommend.

Misty Lynch

I am writing to express my complete satisfaction with Joe Cummings as a realtor. Throughout the entire process Joe was professional, conscientious, and motivated. His real estate knowledge and attention to detail was invaluable from the home selection, offer, inspection, and closing processes.  I always felt as though I was his only client and would highly recommend him for anyone.

Lisa Birkeland

My husband and I wanted an honest, well informed, non-pushy and educated Realtor with experience. Joe really listened to our needs and delivered the results we were looking for. I recommend him as your agent for life. Thanks Joe!

AL Rogers

Joe Cummings has been a dream to work with.  Not only did he help my husband and I purchase our new home, he also assisted with finding a renter for our previous condo.  When we were on the fence and thinking about selling our old place, he encouraged us to take advantage of Austin's booming rental market, even though he could have made more money if we had sold.

He is a great communicator, making sure everybody is on the same page, and returns phone calls and emails promptly (which is what lead us to work with him). When showing homes, he is super friendly, not pushy at all, and if you'd like, will give an honest critique of how he thinks a property would work or not work for your needs.

Mercedes DooLittle-Kovar

Joe Cummings is one of the most dedicated realtors I know. He worked hard to find us our dream home. Whenever we hear of someone looking to buy or sell a home we always recommend Joe.

Anna & Domingo Garcia

Joe Cummings assisted me when I was about to buy my current house. My situation was critical because I lost a lot of time with one of those "nightmare realtors."  When I contacted Joe, I was really frustrated with the home-buying process. We had our first interview over the phone and agreed to meet the following day. It amazes me that Joe was able to get the idea of exactly what I wanted right away. He nailed the size of the house, the type of neighborhood I wanted and my price range instantly. The first day we met in person, we visited about 6 houses in a couple of hours and I made an offer THE SAME DAY. Working with Joe was really fast and painless. He was also really good about giving me his input when I requested it. He even gave me great ideas to implement once I bought the house. Really good tips.

It was the first time that Joe worked with my lending agent and they created a great team. He turned my home-buying experience 360 degrees and I am very thankful for that. When I decide to sell or buy another house, he will be the first person that I will call. Very professional.

Larissa Y. Perez

Joe Cummings helped us buy a house in the summer of 2011. He was incredibly helpful, friendly, and stayed current on any properties that became available in the area where we were interested in. He was very patient, willing to show us many properties and then helped us overcome some difficulties regarding the property we chose. Much later, after we closed on the house, and my son was living in it, we asked Joe for some information on house prices in the area to help us with our appeal to the tax appraisal office. Joe helped us without hesitation. If I were to purchase another house, I would certainly look for Joe again.
