Manny met our expectations and more! He was truly a great guy to work with, and I would absolutely recommend Manny to our friends and family. I loved that he was knowledgeable about the local area, always responsive, professional and he always made us feel comfortable with our requests. I'm very thankful that we got to work with him. Thanks, Manny!

Manny is an amazing human being. He made sure I felt comfortable every step of the way when buying my first home. We came in under asking price on top of the "new build/end of year" discount and even received an incentive for the remainder of my current lease at the time. He took the time to break down all the closing costs math for me to ensure I went with the best loan... I really didn't know what I was looking at and he taught me so much a long the way. He is so patient and happily explained the same thing over and over until I semi-understood. It's overwhelming buying a home - especially my first home and I was very lucky to have Manny on my side. I was also happy to hear that I was his 3rd independent female to close just that month. He told me this with the biggest smile, he truly has a heart of gold. 100% recommend Manny and will use his services again when needed.

I’m a 73-year-old retired businessman/rancher. I’ve bought and sold many houses, ranches, and businesses plus handling many real estate transactions for my non-profit health system, where I have been a trustee for 27 years. Manny Arce is one of the best Realtors I have worked with. He’s knowledgeable and very conscientious. Being an out of state owner, Manny stepped up in a most professional way to handle many tasks for me so that we could get the house ready to sell. He was responsive and returned calls and emails in a timely and professional manner. When we began the negotiating process, unlike many listing agents, there was never a question about who he was working for as my interests were always placed first, before simply getting a deal done. In summary, Manny made what could have been a difficult and frustrating long-distance listing and sale a pleasure; he has my highest recommendation and will be my agent if I need to acquire another Austin property.

We have lived in the same Austin home for the past twenty years. From time to time we had looked into moving, but no realtor had ever found us an advantageous new home nor stuck with us long enough to continue the search. Similarly, we never felt comfortable that any agent was capable of marketing our old home to its best potential. In Manny, we found a person who could do both. For almost a year and a half he carefully searched for options and mapped out possibilities. In every instance he had our interests as his first priority. He would not so much sell the features of the home we were looking at because he felt we would see them without his help. Rather, his job, he felt, was to point out the deficits that we might not readily recognize. And because he took such care and exercised such a meticulous and critical eye, we learned to accept whatever he said as the absolute truth. And he has never let us down. Manny finally found us what we were looking for and with his help, we closed last week. As to our old home, Manny dug deep and put a close read on the market and priced the home fairly but profitably. He recognized a very late-breaking upward trend in the prices in our neighborhood whereas every other broker was peddling the same price per square foot calculus regardless of some of the specialty items we had in our home. And just as the house was ready to go live on the MLS, Manny showed it on preview and we had our first offer. Manny then saw some difficult negotiations through to its final strike price. We close on this sale next week and with a gap between the two homes of only 18 days. Manny is the most talented and conscientious agent we have ever worked with and we were lucky to have found him. He is a true gem.

Manny was able to find a buyer for my home and in a timely manner, in an area that was deemed challenging and had homes listed for many months. He was always available to answer any questions, he was prompt with return calls. He always looked out after my best interest. I look forward to calling him when I'm ready to buy again.

S. Herrera

Manny was awesome to work with! I gave him my price range, area I wanted to live in, and a list of requirements for a condo and he found the perfect place for me! He was great at responding to my texts/calls and always had good advice. He was very professional and patient (especially with my sometimes impatient mom). He worked his hardest to get me the best deal possible on my condo!! I highly recommend using him as your realtor!!

R. Limon

Manny did an excellent job all through the stressful process of selling our home. He found great prospects and our home was sold above our asking price and in THREE DAYS. Manny delivered on every aspect of our sale and had the best in every category including professional stagers, cleaners, and the title company we used through Manny was outstanding. Can't say enough about Manny and his dedication and professionalism. He's a closer!

P. Murphy

Manny was extremely helpful throughout the process. As a first time home buyer, it was nice to have someone so knowledgeable and thorough. He was always available when we had questions and was a great negotiator, making sure we got the best deal possible.

Alex and Abe

Manny was brave enough to assist me in buying my first home recently. I know I can be very particular but Manny stuck with me and was persistent in helping me find my home. He kept in constant communication with me and helped me through the process. Manny went out of his way time after time to show me homes only to find that it wasn't what I was looking for. We finally came across a home that I felt satisfied all my needs and we even placed an offer immediately after an in-depth review. The purchase of the home went easy enough considering it was my first home. I felt like I was in control as Manny assisted me through the process. He has kept communication since and checks in on me time to time to make sure I'm not having any issues. I would recommend Manny because he is persistent at getting his buyer into the home they want no matter how long it takes or how much work he has to do.

Manny has provided exceptional service for me on both the selling end and buying end of real estate negotiations. He knows the market in Austin and is extremely attentive to his clients. Whenever I text or email, he sends an answer right away. I am high maintenance and high anxiety and he was always super professional and accommodating. He deserves your trust and will get you the highest price if you are selling and the lowest price if you are buying. He remains extremely objective during the process, even if you become emotionally invested in a property. He saved me from paying more than I should have for my new house several times because he was able to remain objective while I was emotionally invested. I highly recommend him for buying and selling a home in the volatile Austin area.

L. Snyder

From the very beginning of our experience with Manny selling our condo in Austin, we were impressed. He conducted a complete review of properties for sale in the area and together we determined the right price. From that point on, until closing, Manny kept us informed every step of the way. It was the easiest and best experience I have ever had selling real estate. Manny's the best and I would recommend him for all your real estate needs.

J. Snyder

My house was on the market the previous year with a different realtor and we had a difficult time getting any attention, much less an offer. After meeting with Manny, it became clear that he was passionate about his work. I immediately felt safe and in good hands. He not only took the time to hear all of the history and personal events that lead to my need to sell, but he took them seriously. After I signed with him, I made a last minute decision to rent for a year, and Manny graciously helped me through that process as well. He cared about my situation and waited until it was finally time to put my house on the market. He walked me through every step and answered all of my questions immediately. I never once had to wait on him for a response. He was very keen to the area where I was selling and it was obvious that he knew all of the tricks and things to look for to keep up with the competition. I never imagined myself sitting at a table with multiple offers to choose from, but Manny made that happen. He's very friendly and very personable. All in all, you will find that he is a true professional. I highly recommend Manuel Arce as your next realtor.

S. Olsen

Manny did a superb job with the sale of my condo! I was very satisfied with his knowledge of the local market, and strategies to get top dollar for my property. Whenever I needed anything, I would contact him and he would get back to me within the hour, without fail. This was my first time selling, so I had lots of questions. He was very patient with me and gave me great advice when I needed it. I highly recommend Manny Arce for his competent and knowledgeable service, and I will definitely be using him for the purchase of my next property.

L. Snyder

Manny was great! He was very easy to work with, and I would highly recommend him to anyone in the Austin area looking for a Realtor. I am a business owner living out of state in Colorado and Manny made selling my rental property in Austin very easy, my condo was sold in just one week! He was very knowledgeable about the area and made the process extremely easy for me. He returned all of my phone calls immediately, was always very friendly and professional, and answered all of my questions throughout the process. I would definitely recommend him!

S. Snyder

I am a former real estate agent (no longer licensed) so of course I thought I could handle the sale of my home without listing; however, after speaking with Manny I realized just because I knew the process didn't mean I knew the market and how to get the most dollars for my home. I was shocked (and am still recovering) from just how much more Manny got for my home than I ever dreamed possible. He is very knowledgeable, calm, assured and emphatic. I wouldn't let my children use anyone else if they lived in his area - or anyone else I care about if I could help it. I wish I had another house for him to sell for me.

G. Granado

When it came time to decide on a realtor for our first home, there was no hesitation to go with Manuel. We had friends who were using and had used him. We got to see how professional and genuine of a realtor he is, and that was important to us. Throughout the buying process, he listened to what was important to us in a home and was always very mindful of our budget (never showing us anything we'd absolutely love, but couldn't afford). After he showed us a new neighborhood to build a home in, we quickly signed and began that process. During the 8 months it took to build our dream home, Manny was at all the appointments, would return phone calls in a timely manner, and was always very quick to respond to emails/texts we would send with questions we had. Manuel's strong communication with the Lender and Builder really allowed for us to fully enjoy the process. When it came time to close, Manny made sure we were well informed on all the documents and steps we would go through at the closing table. After signing, and after taking a photo with my husband, we needed one with OUR Relator! I would highly recommend Manuel to anyone buying/building/selling! You will get the best service out there.

Michael Kars

Manuel is a quality realtor and is always next to his phone to answer questions 24/7. I never had to wait for a response when I saw a listing I wanted to check out. In the Austin market if you're not quick on the draw then you've already lost, and Manuel helps you compete. He's also aware of past listings so that you know what the average price is of your house's area. He has good connections with inspectors and loan officers to make the closing process easy. I highly recommend his services for the entire Austin area.

T. Riffel

My experience with Manny was stellar. His professionalism along with his knowledge of the market was impeccable. Manny gave me a list of items and deadlines in which needed to be done to sell my home. After completing these tasks, my home was not only sold within 11 days but raised the property value of homes in the neighborhood. I would highly recommend Manny to ANYONE! While selling my home, Manny was able to find a new place for me and my son. I appreciate his efforts, his workmanship, and honesty throughout the entire process.

G. Gold

Manny made the sale of my home a breeze. Everyone talks about the horrors of buying and selling a home, but he made it so easy. He had a wonderful photographer that took their time to make sure the house looked perfect. He knows how to price the home accurately and then was able to get more than list price! He works around the clock and will always be there if you need him. I highly recommend won't be disappointed!

J. Jenson

Manuel Arce was exceptionally knowledgeable and was extremely professional throughout the entire process. Our house sold extremely fast because of his guidance for getting the house sell ready. Our house the market and in less than 3 hours and was presented with 2 offers. We will definitely be using him for our next house sale.

Kevin and Ashley

Manuel was amazing! He adjusted to my crazy night schedule to see homes at times that were good for me. Helped me see things that I was over looking. And when I thinking there seemed to not be a house for me after all the bids getting out bid and OMG this battle I had with this one house(he did all the talking, made me see the bigger picture, and really helped with my decision making). But in the end, he found me the perfect house well within my budget. It was one rough journey but I got my pot of gold at the end. Thanks, Manny it has been a long journey but we did it! WHO DAT! Go Saints!

C. Domingue

I was in a bind when I decided to bring Manuel Arce on as my realtor. My tenant skipped out from rent and left me with the entire mortgage of a house, which sadly, I wasn't prepared for. I was going to lose my house if I didn't act fast.

Not only did Mr. Arce get right into action with the listing and showings of my home but his phone calls and general concern about my situation made me feel like he was treating my situation almost like it was his.

100% professional from day 1 until the end, and sold my house faster than I ever thought possible. I recommend him very highly for anyone looking for an A+ realtor.

Danny Hernandez

Had a very good and pleasant experience. It was made very easy. Would highly recommend him to friends and family. He walked me through every step of the process. I looking forward to working with Manuel in the future.

J. Sedillo

My fiancé and I knew Manuel initially through Austin Sports and Social League but worked with him professionally for the first time this past spring when we were looking to buy our first home. Manuel was always available to discuss and show houses at our convenience and was always prompt to answer or return our phone calls and emails. He helped us find the perfect home, and we would strongly recommend Manuel Arce as a realtor!

A. Akuretiya

Manuel was great to work with. The Austin rental market is stressful, to say the least, but Manuel's help, guidance and expertise throughout the whole process really helped us find a beautiful rental home in our price range and area of choice by the time we needed it. He was kind and very professional both with us and the landlords he dealt with. He was very knowledgeable about the area, and let us know of good areas nearby that had the shopping, dining and lifestyle activities we would be interested in. He was very instructive on how we should handle each situation, timely in dealing with our questions and concerns and I would highly recommend his services to anyone looking to buy or lease in this fast growing city.

M. Wagner

I met Manny through the agent who sold my house in Reno, Nevada. After a series of long distance phone calls, during which Manny asked a lot of questions and listened to and remembered my answers, he met me at the airport, took me to a great local's favorite restaurant, then showed me several houses that fit my requirements over the next few days. After narrowing our search, I decided on a house that really suits me, then I had to return to Reno. Over the next several days, Manny negotiated effectively, supplied lists of title companies, inspectors, etc., and generally shepherded the process to my best advantage. I would recommend Manny to anyone moving to Austin and will use his services again if I move within Austin.

D. McCaffrey

When I first started thinking about buying my first home, I was a little scared about the whole process. I had heard all kinds of stories from peers and friends that made me a little nervous about doing this on my own, and for the first time. However, Manuel made it so easy for me to understand the terms and paperwork. He always followed up with me and stuck to the requirements I initially gave him for my dream home. I was really lucky to have found him, and will surely refer him to anyone I hear is looking to buy a house. He has extensive knowledge of all scenarios and of the greater Austin area, which really helped! After a couple of months, searching for my dream home, I can now call my perfect house a home. I can honestly say that I have Manuel to thank for it. He helped me tremendously in making that happen.

M. Lima

Manny is a top notch realtor in my book. I have been looking to relocate from New York and retire in the Leander area. An economic way to make this happen was to purchase a HUD property. However, the HUD process has extra hoops. Manny was able to guide me through those all the way through closing! He kept me informed about what was happening and what to expect. I have not bought a house in 35 years and he made the process relatively facile.

W. Richardson

Manuel was very knowledgeable of the real estate process. I used him to rent out one of my houses in Austin. I have used several different agents throughout the years and I have never found one as reliable and quick to respond to inquiries as fast as Manuel. I do not know when I will sell or lease again, but I do know that I plan on using Manuel for my all of renting, selling, and buying needs. As a matter of fact, I was so pleased with his organization that as soon as we were done with this contract, I asked him if he was interested in selling some land nearby. I am sure it will be handled with the same level of professionalism as he did with my rental house.

G. Guererro

MThis was our first time with Manuel as our realtor. My husband is a small homebuilder and we were very impressed with the professionalism, kindness, and work habits he has. It didn't matter what time you needed him he was there. Frankly, without Manuel we would not have sold this last house. I would HIGHLY recommend him to represent you.

J&J Custom Homes

Manuel Arce treated me like family...and that's not a cliche! Due to a family crisis, I was forced to handle the selling of my home and the buying of a new one for my family of 4 by myself. From the very beginning, Manny was a rock that I could depend on to help me navigate the unfamiliar landscape. He was always available for my questions (no matter how stupid) and he tirelessly worked for me. I know I wasn't his only client during this process, but he sure made me feel like it. I would highly recommend Manny for his professionalism, knowledge, and especially his personal touch. He cares about his clients and it shows. THANK YOU, Manny!

Holly and Mike Jarman

Manuel Arce is an absolute pleasure to work with and a professional. He is very attentive to his clients' needs and has a dedicated work ethic. When leasing and later selling my home, he was instrumental in obtaining the best results.

Ann Marie B.

We had a great home buying experience with Manny. We were accepted on the 2nd house we put an offer on and I credit that to how quickly Manny got our offer in and responded to the seller's agent. He was really great at handling all of the inspection negotiations and in helping us get our lender required repairs done in order to close escrow on time. I don't think there would have been anything else Manny could have done to make the purchase of our home any better!


I was really impressed by the speed at which Manuel brought offers to me. I had two offers within 48 hours of signing the listing contract. More offers followed. We closed on one of the offers and the deal was signed in short order. Manuel has fully embraced the tools of technology to make it easy for clients to complete necessary paperwork. It was a pleasure to work with Manuel. I highly recommend him.


We purchased our house outside of Austin and Manuel Arce was our agent. His knowledge of the Austin market and surrounding communities is second to none. He never showed us a property that was out of our budget. We were moving from another state so we needed an agent that made us comfortable. We felt he listened to our needs and showed us the properties within our budget never exceeding our financial concerns. Manuel is not pushy or aggressive; rather he is very patient, easy to work with and very courteous. We developed a great relationship with him. For example, we did not attend the closing but we trusted Manuel to represent us and everything went smoothly. My wife and I would certainly recommend Manuel if you are moving from another state or just moving locally. He treats his customers respectfully.
