Jolene is a gifted manager, a wealth of information, and a joy to work with. She is unflappable in all situations that I have observed her in whether those situations pertained to me or my clients, or not. Her professionalism and calm demeanor exudes confidence, and you just know that Jolene is going to solve the crisis of the day. These are the traits you would hope for in a manager, and definitely, Jolene possesses many great qualities. But there is something else about Jolene that may be more important, and that is, she is a great friend with a very big heart.
She is genuine through and through! I experienced this on a first-hand basis when we lost our son Jack in a tragic car accident this past summer. Jolene was there for me. She was at the funeral home and she attended the service. She sent flowers. She inquired about my well-being. She shed tears. She contributed to the scholarship fund established in my son's memory. Jolene cares deeply about my family and me as we try to maneuver the unchartered path of finding ourselves again. Her quiet presence has given me peace, and for this, I am most grateful.
It truly says a lot about someone, especially a busy manager, when they allow themselves to interact with you on a personal level -- it can't just be about business sometimes. Jolene's caring concern and kindness and her actions have shown me repeatedly the kind of person she really is. And that is what I appreciate about her the most -- knowing that she is a loving, kind, understanding, and thoughtful person.
Thank you, Jolene, for all that you do everyday. You are a great manager, but you are also a treasured friend. I think the world of you!
I spent over 15 years as a sales manager for some of the largest production homebuilders in the country.
I know what makes a manager stand out in the real estate industry. Jolene Weinstein has all the effective management qualities I have observed among my peers over the years. She is a tremendous motivator and her training is without parallel. Jolene always makes time for one on one counseling to assure the success of her sales team.
As a former manager being managed I know that Jolene gets it and works tirelessly to make me better at what I do.
I am blessed to have her push me to reach my goals.
My husband and I moved to Realty Austin a little over a year ago because we were looking for an office environment that was more professional. We definitely chose the right place. The systems that Realty Austin operates help to organize your business and keep you on track. Jolene expects her agents to set goals and gives them the tools to accomplish those goals. She also makes herself available to assist in all areas of your business. She earned manager of the year a few years ago and I have come to appreciate and understand why.
For us, the move to Realty Austin and the Lake Travis office was a perfect fit. Our business is on track and we are much more organized and efficient.

Jolene has been our market manager ever since the opening of the Lake Travis office in Lakeway.
In addition to being friendly and approachable, she is hardworking and tirelessly looks for ways to help us succeed. Jolene is always there when we have a question or need something and goes above and beyond to check in on us - offering assistance with business planning, strategy sessions, and goal setting. We enjoy her company as a friend and really appreciate her skill and knowledge in helping us with our business. She is an asset to our company and we highly recommend her!

Jolene is truly amazing in the support, care, and guidance of all her agents. In my business alone, I almost doubled my production from 2015 to 2016 going from just over 4 million to 8.5 million with her help and the confidence she has in my ability. She's always responsive to questions whether regarding technology, contract details, or how to handle especially difficult clients and is extremely resourceful in her approach to resolutions. If you're looking for a great ally and guide in your business, you will love working with Jolene and will be thrilled with what Realty Austin has to offer.
Jolene is the most innovative, intelligent, creative, and business minded market manager there is out there! Her solutions are practical, applicable, and ahead of the curve and also simple to implement. My business has nearly double since I have joined Realty Austin and it's honestly because of Jolene's effective ideas to take my business to the next level using Realty Austin's seamless and easy systems. She is also personable and friendly as well as approachable! Highly recommend!
Working with Jolene as my manager is a great pleasure. She is not just a "deal doctor" (troubleshooter), she is a mentor looking towards the future for her Agents. She highly encourages her Agents to business plan...not just at the beginning of the year, but throughout the year; and she will sit down with any Agent who wants to fine-tune their business plan. Jolene is also very technology savvy. I know I am a better Realtor and have a stronger business working with Jolene.
After being on my own for the last several years, I was apprehensive about joining a real estate company. I met with Jolene and instantly felt Realty Austin was the right place for me. Jolene is very knowledgeable, accessible and professional. She truly wants to help her agents grow their business and is constantly providing information to help us achieve our goals. She is a Rock Star!
I feel so incredibly fortunate to have Jolene as my market manager. Through her extensive experience and expertise, she has provided insightful advice, guidance, and coaching that has been priceless to me and my real estate business. She truly cares about the success of her agents and it shows with each meeting, training, or conversation. Thanks for everything Jolene!
Jolene is an ultimate professional and an outstanding market manager. She has been instrumental in helping me re-establish my career in the Austin market after being a real estate broker for 15 years in Seattle. Jolene helped me make this transition possible with outstanding support, business planning, and goal setting; all while keeping me accountable for it all. Having a market manager like Jolene who truly cares about you, your business, and is always readily available has helped me double my sales in just one year. Jolene is a true expert in her field and I am grateful to be on her team.
Jolene has been a wonderful asset to us as we have made the transition to Realty Austin. She is very helpful and always answers our questions quickly. Jolene also provides a great deal of value, is very knowledgeable and caring.

Jolene is a wonderful manager! Easy to talk to, always open to help and she is always looking for ways to help us grow and expand our business. Highly recommend.
I moved my business to Realty Austin earlier this year because of its reputation and business practices. I immediately learned that Jolene epitomizes those business practices. Jolene is one those rare managers who naturally serves as an inspiring mentor for the entire team. I am working on a project with a few fellow agents. Jolene took the initiative to help us with this project, provided us with the information and guidance we needed to organize and launch our project. Jolene really cares about her agents success and it shows. My business is forecast to triple this year thanks in large part to Jolene Weinstein.
Jolene has managed our team at Realty Austin. She is able to direct us, assist us, and help us grow our business with technology and much more.
Kelly and David Thate
Jolene has treated everyone in my office equally and fairly - allowing each sales agent to grow at their own speed but quick to point out if getting strayed. She has been proactive in setting up bi-annual one-to-one appointments to review performance and to brainstorm together how I can improve, while asking me what she can do to help. Because of her guidance along with Realty Austin's fantastic support staff, my year to year production improved almost 500% this first year with the company. Now, that's success!
