Josh is originally from Massachusetts.  In 2005, looking for warmer weather, he and his family relocated to Austin.  With its diverse music scene, abundance of outdoor activities and beautiful lakes, it was a great decision.

Josh graduated from Green Mountain College with a BS degree in Hospitality Management.   After graduating he headed for the Colorado Rockies where he started a successful, 12 year, career in the hotel industry, starting in Vail, CO and finishing back in Boston, MA.

After moving to Austin, Josh decided to take his passion for helping people to start a new career in real estate.  He believes in providing over the top customer service to make the home buying or selling process an enjoyable one.  He takes his market knowledge and provides his clients with the tools to help them make the right decisions during their real estate purchase.  Josh understands that his client’s home is one of the largest financial commitments they will make and he will make sure that their transaction goes smoothly.   

Josh has spent a majority of his real estate career helping his clients sell and purchase homes in Austin, Round Rock, Cedar Park, Leander, Pflugerville, Georgetown and surrounding areas.

Outside of his professional life, Josh enjoys spending time with wife, Kristin and their two boys, Ethan and Colin.   He also enjoys mountain biking, snowboarding, traveling and boating.

I have worked in retail management for over 25 years. In that time my family and I have been relocated seven times to 4 different states. Josh Schenck is by far the best realtor we've ever had the pleasure to work with. Over the last four years, my wife and I have purchased two homes and sold 1 with Josh's help. Not sure how he does it but he made us feel as if we were his only customer. When we had questions, he was available. When we wanted to see him about a viewing, again he was available. If he couldn't answer the phone when we called, we'd get a call back very shortly. When looking at homes, he would be as cautious with our investment as we were. If we expressed concerns about serious things like foundation issues, indications of possible water damage, etc. he would agree and move on. He never minimized our thoughts or fears when looking at property. But he never "pulled punches" either. If we were overly critical, he would politely let us know that as well, resulting in a great deal of trust in him. Leading me to the most important part of buying & selling, the negotiations! If we were unreasonable, he says so. If we were unrealistic, he says so. I highly recommend Josh to my friends as well as my family and will continue to work with him as long as I have the option. In summary, you don't feel like his customer, rather like a friend doing you a HUGE favor. Thank you for your time, and a thank you to Josh, AGAIN!

I've had the opportunity to work with Josh since 2011/2012, which is when I first moved back to Austin. At that time, I knew I wanted to make Austin my permanent home and the first step was to see what the real estate market looked like. I was young and had aspirations of owning my own property in order to ensure I would stay in the city long-term. After searching the website, Josh reached out to me seeing if he could assist in any way. Sure enough, we started looking at properties, but nerves/life got the best of me and eventually I missed out on what would have been a great time to purchase. Although the effort wasn't initially successful, Josh maintained professionalism throughout the process and always offered continuous help over the years. Since that time, I've dragged him through multiple searches and house visits, yet he always had a positive and jovial spirit and offered good knowledge/advice along the way. Life got in the way multiple times, which prevented me from going full throttle on executing anything - something I can only imagine becomes a very frustrating item for any real estate agent. Again though, Josh was always understanding and always willing to stand back on the ready until I was in a better position to move forward. Life finally balanced out, my partner finally settled back in Austin and we began searching again with Josh as our agent. Having an additional person in the mix is helpful on a financial front, but not as easy on the decision-making front - something Josh was patient with. He always showed flexibility and a willingness to match our schedules as we went all throughout Austin trying to find our perfect first home. Up until finding what is now our current home, we went through tons of house visits, long conversations, etc and Josh was always excellent in his service. Once we were ready to move forward with our current home, Josh handled the grunt work with documentation in addition to setting us up with mortgage contacts, structural engineers, a title company, insurance, etc. The amount of thorough information was really helpful and made the first time purchasing process smoother than what it would have been without him. Post-close, Josh has additionally been willing to provide market data is in order to assist in our property tax appraisal contest. All in all, Josh is an excellent Realtor and Realty Austin should be proud to have him on your staff.

Working with Josh was a wonderful experience. He was available for us when we needed him and worked extremely hard for us. We had a problem with an appraisal towards end of process and he was instrumental in getting solution to problem accomplished, along with loan agent.

Would work with him again and refer him most definitely.

We couldn't have had a better experience. Josh Schecnk helped us with both the sale of our former home and the purchase of our new home. He is personable, attentive, and detailed. We were out of town while our home was listed. He took care of every detail while we were away and gave us the peace of mind to enjoy our vacation. He assisted us before closing explaining details about the HUD report and he was with us at closing. Josh knew we were interested in purchasing a home in a specific area. When a home came on the market that fit our needs, he was quick to call and arranged a viewing for us. Josh helped in so many ways during the purchasing process and closing on our new home. He kept us constantly informed of every detail and even showed up on moving day! Josh Schenck is professional, detailed, courteous and attentive, everything one wants in a professional Realtor. I highly recommend him and will use him for any future real estate needs.

Our realtor, Josh Schenck, was incredibly helpful during our home purchase in Avery Ranch. Not only was he an expert on the area but he continually went above and beyond - whether it was assisting in negotiations, recommending reputable service providers in the area or working with the seller's agent to keep our deal on track. I'd highly recommend Josh to anyone looking for an experienced realtor, especially in the Avery Ranch area.

Josh Schenck is the best Realtor. This is the 3rd time I have used him. He makes a stressful process very easy. He knows his stuff. I have been through both selling and buying with him. My husband and I cant say enough about him. Also he is such a great guy and a lot of fun. I am proud to have him as my Realtor and he has become a good friend.

Just a note that we were super happy with Josh's help in our purchasing process. He communicated early and often, and having lived outside of TX he knew what we meant when we told him we were looking for something that wasn't a typical new Texas house. He spent more than a fair share of time physically looking with us on our two home buying trips, and it resulted in a house my wife is super happy with. He did a great job and when it comes time to sell this house we would definitely use Josh to do it.

Josh was very accommodating and a true professional when assisting us with our home sale and purchase. I appreciated his flexibility on working hours and knowledge of the market. He assisted us by giving some very good insight into locations and school districts. I would definitely recommend Josh to my friends and family when purchasing a new home or looking to sell theirs. I not only got a beautiful home, but someone I call a friend. Thank you to Josh and Realty Austin for the wonderful experience.

Josh did a great job.

My husband and I are currently using Josh Schenck as our Realtor for both selling our home and buying our next family home. He has been amazing, going above and beyond our expectations. He actually found the house we are moving into! He is just friendly and calm when I get anxious, almost like a therapist for the home buying experience. He makes himself available, offers advice when needed, and is humorous, which makes the stress of buying and selling your home easier. We are lucky to have picked Josh and will be sure to have our friends and co-workers use him when that time comes in their lives.

Melanie Smith McCann, Facebook Review

Josh has been a great realtor for me. His best quality was that he was always responsive and always on time for the most part. I would definitely recommend him to all my friends and relatives looking to buy a house. He is pretty knowledgeable and helped me solve multiple questions with the seller.

Cris Salazar, Facebook Review

Josh was very knowledgeable, responsive, timely & helpful.  It was great having him as a rep, he did excellent communicating with all involved parties & was nearly a single point of contact for me.

Jeff Bilinski

Josh Schenck and Realty Austin did an amazing job selling my home. Marketing and presentation of my home was perfect, and resulted in my home selling in less than 3 weeks....even though the house next door has been on the market for 8 months. I will use Josh again in the future and highly recommend Realty Austin for your home selling or buying needs.

Sign Guy Joe Sign-Tracker, Facebook Review

Josh Schenck, real estate agent with Realty Austin, certainly knows how to manage both the buy and sell side simultaneously - and with infinite patience and a sense of humor along the way.

I listed my home in Round Rock, Texas at the same time my then fiance and now husband and I contracted with Josh via Austin Realty as our Buyers' Agent. Needless to say trying to buy and sell a house concurrently can be quite stressful. Josh juggled all my calls including the , "Omg, x, y, z just broke on the current house, what do I do now? to "Omg, we're never going to find a house before we close on the old house (which not so incidentally had a contract on it within 3 weeks of listing!)."

Josh is extremely knowledgeable about the Austin market, too. He tempers realism with an understanding of the buyer/seller needs and he hits the nail on the head consistently. What's nice about working with Josh is that he's very intuitive about his clients and can tell when they will come around on a relevant issue and when he needs to gently (or not, depending on the client :)) steer you in the right direction.

As my agent on the sell side, Josh did a great job early in the process of getting my house publicized quickly. he had great color flyers with pictures and scheduled an open house the first weekend after the house hit MLS. When we received on offer on the house, Josh was on a family vacation; yet, he took time out from that to make sure my interests were best represented rather than leaving one of his colleagues to handle the matter in his absence.

On the buy side - all I can say is that he has more patience than me. My husband and I looked hard for over 4 months - I can't even count how many homes we viewed. Even we he knew a home wouldn't work for us, but we insisted (in desperate hope that it would), he still showed us the listing.

The end of the story is I sold my house, Josh found us a house, and we closed on the old house and the new house with perfect timing!

If you are looking for an agent who knows the market, is fun to work with, and listens to your needs to find the perfect fit, whether buying or selling, the Josh Schenck with Austin Realty is the agent for you.

I'd like to express my sincere gratitude toward Josh Schenck for his effort and dedication in finding the perfect home/business location for my husband and I when we decided to move to Austin, Texas. Our situation was somewhat unique, not only due to the fact that we were looking to move to Austin from Massachusetts, but in that our check-list was so specific. We were looking for a separate building on the property for my husband's business and a studio in the house for myself. I wanted a view of Lake Travis, an in-ground pool, ample room for my daughters to visit and a private setting where we could enjoy peace and serenity. My house hunting time was limited and our budget somewhat modest for our criteria, but Josh most definitely rose to the challenge. He listened to my needs, showed only properties he knew would interest me and concentrated on neighborhoods I found desirable. Within my time constraints, he was able to find a property, in the Hudson's Bend/Lakeway area, that completely hit the mark.

Having had experience with other realtors, I have to say that Josh has a unique gift. His ability to connect with a client and his resourcefulness are impressive. Thank you, Josh. You did a great job and I would highly recommend your services to anyone moving or selling in the area.

Josh was great - very informed, very helpful! We are first time home buyers and he held our hands through the entire process.

Mrs. Rebecca Hornbach

Josh helped us find the perfect home. We had been looking for 2 years. He helped us with all of our questions and also helped us obtain flood insurance for our property. He always sent papers that I requested very promptly and communicated with the sellers realtor on our behalf.
