Michael Said

Broker Associate

Michael is a native Texan who is proud to call Austin his home for the last 18 years. Originally from Dallas, Michael moved to Austin in 1994 and graduated in 1998 from The University of Texas with a degree in Economics and a minor in Business. He obtained his real estate license in 1996 during his sophomore year at UT Austin. Michael began working right away as a part time agent until he finished college. After graduating, Michael chose a full-time real estate career instead of following the trend of working with Dell. This was the best decision he ever made.

While at Ely Properties, Michael was a top producer and achieved a very high level of success by closing over 200 transactions totaling $30+ million in real estate over 7 years. He also became an avid investor buying and selling multiple investment properties.

By this time Michael was ready to branch out on his own and opened his own brokerage in May of 2006. Michael’s business has grown to focus on working with Buyers, Sellers, and Investors in the general Austin market. He has a vast knowledge of many Austin neighborhoods such as Tarrytown, Clarksville, South Austin, Downtown, Westlake, Travis Heights, Hyde Park, Allandale, Bee Caves, Lake Austin, and Lake Travis.

With 16 years of experience under his belt, Michael has become one of Austin’s most successful real estate agents. He stays continually educated with current real estate knowledge while having taken over 500 hours of real estate classes. Michael is a licensed Real Estate Broker in the State of Texas. Less than 1% of Realtors ever achieve their broker's license due to the education, training and experience required.

In his free time he enjoys spending time on Lake Austin with his friends and family. Michael's other hobbies include snowboarding, scuba diving, coaching his daughter’s soccer team, golfing, tennis, and running on Lady Bird Lake.

I just closed on my condo with Michael Said from Realty Austin in downtown Austin and couldn't be happier. He was easy to work with and knew exactly what I wanted. When the perfect place came up, he notified me immediately and we got it. Only an expert is this precise and efficient. I'll be using Michael again for my next purchase without a doubt!

Michael was great every step of the way! I've already referred him to friends of mine looking to buy and/or sell. I will continue to do so.

A friend of mine had previously used Michael Said to purchase his first home in Austin. On his recommendation, my wife and I met Michael and were very impressed. His knowledge of the Austin real estate market was extensive. He was able to help us choose a neighborhood based on school districts and potential growth. He made us very comfortable in making our move from Los Angeles. Michael was very generous with his time and assisted us every step of the way. We will surely be working with him again in the future!

I used Michael Said when I bought a new house several months ago so when I decided to sell my investment property, there was no question of whom I would use. Again, Michael made the whole process super easy, and even enjoyable if that's possible! Michael also made himself available to help me after hours when I had questions, and even gave me the contact info of several contractors to help me out with house projects. An all round great guy who knows the Austin estate market inside and out!

Michael Said worked very hard to help me with the paper work that made this sale possible. I will recommend him to all my friends.

March 2015

I was so lucky to work with Michael Said in searching for a new home! Not only is he just a really great guy but also his knowledge of the Austin real estate market is immense. And after our first day house hunting, he understood exactly the kind of property I was searching for and in about only 3 weeks found me my new house! To be honest I wouldn't have looked twice at it, based on the exterior, but Micheal knew there was something special about it, and he was right. I fell in love and knew I was home. If you're looking for an expert in the Austin market and want some good company along the way, Michael is the broker for you.

Michael Said was excellent! He was very helpful and very responsive all the way through the process. He is clearly very knowledgable and was a huge help to me in finding a place, and making the transaction a quick and easy process.

Michael was outstanding. I would certainly recommend him to our friends.

He did not leave any stone unturned. All requests were handled with speed and he was full of very useful information.

Jim McGinity

I had the consolation of knowing that I was represented by the best agent, and that the property was marketed with great skill, resulting in a sale at a price that I know was fair. I realized that Mike had to work extra hard to get me that price, and I appreciate it very much.

Michael Said did an amazing job in representing me as I searched for a new home in Austin. He is extremely detailed and knows the city very well. He showed me many options to consider before I ultimately decided on a place. You can also definitely tell that Michael knows a ton of people in the real estate industry all throughout Austin. He helped me out with so many suggestions on who to work with for different services I required, which I was extremely grateful for. I couldn't have asked for a better representative in my new home purchase!

Realty Austin has a wonderful talent in Michael and I would definitely recommend him to anyone searching for a real estate professional in the Austin area. He was truly a pleasure to work with!

Thanks Michael. You made buying a condo from Australia seamless. Great service! I hope to shake your hand and thank you personally when we finally meet later this year.

John Noble, Facebook Review

Thanks to Michael Said for a quick and painless transaction. He listed the condo for more than I was expecting and got a full price cash offer within 4 days. I couldn't ask for anything else. I will use him again and refer others to him.

Brian Truby

I have always had fantastic dealings with Michael Said. He provides superior service, always exhibits the highest level of integrity, and is a pleasure to work with on both ends of the deal.

Ryan Windsor, Facebook Review

We just bought a property through Michael Said. The experience was pleasant and painless. Michael was professional, always available and extremely helpful. Thank you, Michael!

Ajam Kamal, Facebook Review

Michael Said is the best I have ever dealt with.

Joe Brennan

A special word of thanks to Michael Said for his guidance and hard work during this whole listing and sale process. I appreciate the advice, suggestions, and all of the little things he did to help out like running by the condo to meet service people, cutting checks for us, phone calls on our behalf, etc. I'll be sure to pass his name on to anyone looking for a home or condo in Austin; especially around the campus area. It has been a pleasure working with him.

Dave Brucker

I have purchased several properties from primary residence, rental properties and flips and without a doubt feel that Michael Said is the best Realtor I have ever worked with!

I also manage a downtown rental highrise and work with Realtors every day and would recomend Michael to my clients before any other Realtor.

Stan N. Smith

The last time I bought a house was in 2003 and the process was simple. Fast forward to 2012 and the lending market for rental properties is TOUGH. Thankfully, I had Realty Austin on my side to get me through the process. Michael was great, handled all of my issues and answered all of my questions and I had a lot of them. The massive amount of forms and documents to review can be overwhelming. Michael has many years experience and together we were able to close.

Logan, Yahoo! Review

Michael did an outstanding job with our condo sale. His attention to detail Michael Said has been an incalculable asset to my families search for a house. He was knowledgeable with the area and took time out of his week/weekends to show us around. We must have looked at 30 houses and each time we walked through a prospective house, Michael was informed and able to answer all my questions. But above that, he was open and honest with each step of the process. My wife and I couldn't have asked for a better realtor which is why we are proud to refer him. Through this whole process, Michael Said has not only become a trusted source for information about realty in the Austin area, but a trusted friend.   

Michael Covey

Michael Said has helped me buy 2 homes and sell one, with ease and professionalism from start to finish. I would recommend him to my friends and family without hesitation. He is honest, trustworthy and courteous--and most importantly, really knows the business well. The latest home purchase we made exceeded any of our expectations and we were thrilled when we closed. Thank you Michael!

Ryan Denby

Michael did an outstanding job with our condo sale. His attention to detail was amazing and his negotiating skills got us exactly what we wanted. We had some challenges with the buyers at closing but Michael got the issues resolved without us having to come out of pocket. He was able to get the HOA to pay for the needed repairs where I don’t think another agent would have been able to. He is easy to work with and made this stressful situation a breeze.  His experience really paid off!

Diana Potter

I really enjoyed working with Michael. His knowledge of the market is unbelievable. We were looking for a family home and needed to be in a good school district. Michael showed us all our options and helped us pick out the perfect place for my wife and three boys. He was very patient with us and our difficult schedules.  Michael was there every step of the way!

Michael Gonzalez

I am a first time buyer and used Michael to buy my house in South Austin. He found me an amazing deal on my place and even helped me find a great loan. My sister is moving to Austin and she will definitely be working with him. I would recommend Michael to anybody that is looking to buy or sell.
