Overall, John is an amazing Realtor. He is organized, professional and helpful in all details of selling a home. I enjoyed working with John and thank Realty Austin for their help with selling my home.

We have worked with John Coake twice in the past year and have been very happy with the excellent service provided and final results. We were linked up with John through the Realty Austin website as we were looking for a Realtor who handled both home rental and sales transactions. John has handled both transaction types for us. He was always professional in demeanor and helped us get the best value. John provided good suggestions tailored to our tastes on improvements that helped visualize a property’s potential. John displayed a strong knowledge of the Austin real estate market including neighborhood demographics. We would work with John again in the future should the need arise and recommend his services to others.

John Coake was an incredible person to work with and the best real estate agent I could have asked for. He ensured an easy process start to finish with great recommendations for lenders and other necessary professionals along the way. John was responsive, sincere and demonstrated a true interest in helping me meet my objectives.

John Coake was exactly the kind of Realtor I was looking for. He has excellent communication skills, is professional every step of the way, and helpful throughout the entire process. I highly recommend John to anyone who is looking for excellent customer service in real estate!

Working with John Coake from Realty Austin was the best decision we made when selling our house. He was professional, engaged, and responsive to our needs and concerns from the very beginning to the completion of the process. The greatest part of the experience was his communication and guidance to help maximize the value of our home sale. John was the best person we could have chosen to serve as our agent, and I would enthusiastically choose to work with him again.

Everything about my experience with John and Realty Austin was excellent! John was always available for showings, phone calls, answering questions, etc. I could not have been happier with John and the service he provided. John was a wealth of knowledge for us. He worked hard to ensure all of our questions were answered, to give recommendations when requested, and to overall ensure our desires in a property were met. We would certainly call on John in the future and will definitely recommend him to friends. Thanks for everything!

John Coake came highly recommended as a helpful, knowledgeable and most importantly, honest Realtor. We are from out of town, and this is our first investment property, so everything about this transaction from beginning to end has been a new experience for us. John could not have been more helpful. From the beginning to the end John answered every question, took care of everything we needed as we are out of town, and even found us a renter. We hope to do this again with John.

I could not have asked for any more than what John provided along the way. He was very attentive, gave great suggestions, and once I decided on a new home, he constantly kept me informed. We will always recommend him to any friends or family members!

John has been a Godsend for me. My house was too large for me and 15 years old, repairs and maintenance consumed my time, so I decided to move near my son in Round Rock. I started searching online for homes near him, and John picked up on my search, contacted me via e-mail and eventually showed me homes in Sun City. John met me at the sales office because when I looked at the models, I told him I would rather buy a new home. John has communicated with me through the entire process; I could not have done it without John. He had many helpful suggestions, answered all my questions, is very professional and knowledgeable. He was with me viewing models, during the sales meeting, during the closing escrow meeting and when I requested. I made sure the Sun City Sales rep knew that the sale was due to John's intervention in my home search. Selling my home in CA and buying in Sun City has been very stressful as I had to do it all myself in CA. I will recommend John to anyone I know.

As a Texas Real Estate Broker for over thirty years; I was very pleased with John Coake IV of Realty Austin and his level of professionalism in the sale of my mom’s home in Northwest Austin. John did a great job on marketing and the seller end of the transaction, and it was a delight to work with him. I do highly recommend John with his professional residential real estate knowledge and skills to both sellers and buyers. I know that they will be ethically and well represented by both John and Realty Austin.

John was an awesome Realtor to work with - super patient and never pushy. He made his way all over the Austin area for us, despite our tiny budget. He also made sure everything went smoothly during the home buying process and always followed up. John is a stand-up guy, and we will definitely recommend him to our friends - as well as to hopefully work with him again in the future. Thanks again, John!!

John was awesome.  Very reliable, courteous, and professional.  He was extremely patient with my bombardment of questions and was not pushy in any way. I can’t stand dealing with salespeople that are aggressively pushing for money in their pocket vs. truly helping a customer out.   

I would highly recommend John to anyone looking for a home.

I cannot tell you how amazing John was! We were relocated to Austin for my husband's job. We came to this city without knowing much and were completely overwhelmed by the housing market. With so many new neighborhoods popping up all across the city, the idea of selecting one home, in one neighborhood was absolutely daunting. John listened to us and quickly understood our needs and wants. He was able to break through the clutter and chaos of the housing market and select a focused area for us to look in. We were thrilled with all the neighborhoods he selected for us. After we had determined the neighborhoods we wanted to be in, came the task of actually finding a house in one of those top neighborhoods. John was relentless. He took us to house after house after house - meeting with builders and exploring all of our options. We were out with him for ten hours straight on day 1 and the next day he met us again for another 5 hours. I was so grateful that he pushed us to keep looking so that we could find our perfect home in our dream neighborhood. While we do not know what the future has in store for us, I can guarantee that when we eventually sell and buy a new home, John will be our agent of choice. He went above and beyond - far superior to any other realtor we have worked with previously. He is truly Fantastic!

We just relocated from New York, and John Coake helped our move go very smoothly. We planned to come down for two house hunting trips, but John helped us with research ahead of time, and then planned two full days of neighborhood tours... and we found the perfect home on our first trip. He continued to help us coordinate every last detail right up through the closing, which was especially appreciated as we were not here for most of the process. He definitely went beyond the service that most realtors provide, and I would strongly recommend him as a realtor!

Dan Brown, Facebook Review

From the beginning, John has provided us with excellent communication. Throughout the entire process, we had no hesitation in contacting him to ask regarding anything with the house buying process, neighborhoods, and more. He provided outstanding service from beginning to the final transaction of purchasing our home. We couldn't be happier with him and would highly recommend him. We would give him the highest rating!

Thank you so much, John!

Murray and I feel so relieved and fortunate that we had John Coake as our support, guide and advocate during the potentially stressful process of buying a house. John quickly adjusted to our preferences and needs with seamless precision and always responded to our emails and phone calls within 30 minutes or less. Whether setting up appointments, calling us back and or investigating a question, John always did everything he said he would do and did it immediately.

But what I think I appreciated most about John was his calm, ever-pleasant demeanor from beginning to end. At every encounter, he was cheerful and warm and always every conversation, written or verbal, with an upbeat, personal question that tended to make us feel relaxed and connected.

John is simply a wonderful, sweet person and a professional, who's exceptional at what he does. I will send anyone needing a real estate agent his way any chance I get.

I have worked with many Realtors throughout my life, and John Coake has been the best experience thus far. He is professional, gives his honest opinion when asked, was incredibly patient with us, always had a smile on his face and was willing to go out of his way to accommodate all our needs. He also went the extra mile giving us numbers and comparisons on all the different properties we were interested in, and made sure we got the best out of our investment. I would work with John again in a heartbeat! Highly, highly recommend him.

John is a truly awesome Realtor and person. He presented us with many options and with each one we knew we were getting closer and closer to the option that felt right. Once we found our new home, John was with us every step of the way. We've now been living in our new home for close to two months and we couldn't be happier.

John helped us find our house and was simply amazing from start to finish. We were lucky to have him by our side, and I would recommend him a million times!

April 1 2016

I was contacted by John after viewing listings on the company's website. I was very impressed by how detailed and professional the site was. There were even videos of the neighborhoods. Being new to Austin - this was very helpful. John is a consummate professional in every way. He was always upbeat and ready to show me properties and prepared detailed analysis of properties. I ultimately decided to return to New Mexico where I can afford the type of home that is out of my price range in Austin. I have no reservations about referring John Coake to anyone who is looking for a responsive, knowledgeable and client service oriented Realtor.

I worked with John Coake. John is extremely diligent, I was very impressed with his ability to get me everything I needed. There were many delays and issues with the build of my new place and John was there every step of the way. I will be recommending John to everyone that needs a realtor.

Seth L., Yelp Review

As a recent married couple relocating from the Midwest, we needed help getting familiar with the area as well as finding a home. John was extremely patient with us in the house hunting process and helped us get comfortable with each of the areas that we explored. He listened to the things that we liked about homes and responded with great ideas about options for us to consider. He was very helpful in negotiating our final offer and we are very pleased with our new home. We truly enjoyed our experience of working with John and highly recommend him to a prospective home buyer.

Brian & Kristin Madden

John is hands down the BEST broker I have ever worked with. Not only did he help me buy this unit, but sell it as well. He also helped my partner and I sell our other house, and negotiated an executive rental. His ability to juggle multiple personalities, business issues, legal issues, and still have a good sense of humor and work ethic are a 12 of out 10! If you get the chance to work with John do it. I have used brokers in New York City, Cold Spring, New York, San Francisco, and Portland Oregon, and I wish John had been my broker on all those transactions.

M. Ellis

John Coake helps his clients through the home buying/selling experience gracefully by listening, offering suggestions and acting in the best interest for his clients. He reads the fine print and makes his clients his first priority. I've recommended him several times and my friends and family agree, John Coake knows Real Estate.

K. Hills

John did a splendid job of selling my home for me. I deeply appreciated his excellent advice and all his help in preparing the house for market. Everything was handled with great professionalism and skill. The property was sold within a week for more than my asking price and the entire transaction closed in less than 30 days. Seller and Buyer were both very happy. It doesn't get any better than that!

Eleanor Bode

I have never experienced a real estate professional with so much data and insight into the market, you certainly blew me away with all your research...

B. Schultz

I was exceptionally picky in what I was after, and John stayed with me every step of the way. I was also a first-time home buyer, and John was a perfect mentor, coach and sounding board. I can’t say enough great things about John, and I wouldn’t think twice about recommending his services to anyone, anytime.

Steve K.

John is very helpful and professional. He is patient and makes the entire process of buying or selling a home successful based on what the client’s desires are. I would (and have) recommend John to anyone.

T. Campbell

John helped me sell 2 properties and buy 2 properties to date. What I like about him is that he is very patient with our questions, is super responsive during the whole process, including those unexpected crisis times when one has to get funds in the bank within an hour. He has a lot of experience with the whole buying and selling process and I have certainly benefitted from this over the years.
