Phil Hutson

Phil Hutson

Broker Associate

Experience. Expertise. Knowledge. Professionalism. Honesty. Integrity.

Idle promises from some – guarantees from me. Began my career as an Austin Realtor in 1984, then obtained my Broker license and opened my first real estate firm, Southwest Prime Investments, in 1986, selling mostly commercial properties, and started my second company, Showcase of Homes, in 1989, for residential sales, in Barton Creek Square mall – something that had never before been done in Austin, but quite a success - attracting hundreds of potential home buyers and sellers every day - doing “virtual tours” years before they became a mainstay on all Real Estate web sites.

Having sold millions of dollars’ worth of property (both residential and commercial), and having received numerous award achievements during thirty-plus years of representing both Buyers and Sellers, these achievements were gained solely by adhering to these principles:

  • …to treat you with the respect of a valued client making a very important decision, not just another sale for a commission.
  • …to treat your purchase as if it was my purchase - if I wouldn't "do the deal", I won't let you.
  • …to work for you in a Christian manner and attitude – "..the truth and nothing but the truth.."
  • …to give you my full attention, and guide you to a wise decision based on solid information.
  • …to be as competitive in dealing with someone trying to sell you a home as I have been with the baseball teams I've coached for the last 25 years - you see- I don't like to lose! And I promise, you won't....!

Past clients include U.S. Olympic athletes, professional athletes, movie stars, corporate presidents, and executives from some of Austin’s and the Nation’s most prestigious corporations, as well as first-time home buyers!

If you decide to purchase a home in the Austin metro area and require Realtor assistance, I would appreciate your consideration.

Phil was an absolute pleasure to work with. My wife and kids were a huge part of finding our lake house, and Phil was great with the whole family. We had a wonderful lunch, and by the end of the house shopping process, Phil felt like one of the family. He answered all of our questions to the fullest. We could not have been happier. We will definitely use Phil again if we ever take on another venture. We would also like to thank Realty Austin for a smooth and fast transaction. They were extremely professional and great to work with.

Phil Hutson was the perfect agent for two elderly out of state home buyers. He guided us through every step, from learning to use the Realty Austin database to sitting in on, and even driving us to and from, the closing of escrow. The Realty Austin database is an excellent tool for narrowing the home search. Phil regularly reviewed my searches and periodically called me in California to review my selections and provide insights into neighborhoods, tax rates, association fees and other factors regarding each home. In the several months of my sorting and Phil advising, we narrowed our selection down to a few floor plans, several neighborhoods, and a price range. When we flew to Austin to make our first physical search, Phil guided us to a great selection of houses. We were able to open an escrow in less than two days. While we were ready to buy a home, Phil insisted that we see others. When we were willing to pay full price, Phil correctly asserted that he could negotiate a better deal for us. We finally purchased what we think was the best house at a great price. During the escrow period, when we were in California, Phil kept us up to date by email and telephone. When we arrived in Austin, he kept us up to date and personally reviewed all documents. At closing, Phil drove us to the title company through dreaded downtown Austin traffic and sat in on the closing.

Working with Phil Huston at Realty Austin was one of the greatest partnerships and learning experiences of all time! As first time home buyers, we were not sure where to start. I stumbled upon Phil while I was searching for homes and he called me, introduced himself, was not pushy. He earned our trust right away, and he treated us like family throughout the entire process. Phil has an abundance of experience and knowledge, helps teach you what to look for, etc. By the time he helped us land in the ideal neighborhood and home, it was actually bittersweet because we will miss talking to Phil all the time. I hope he still wants to hear from us, and he will have to if we send more referrals his way. Thank you, Phil, for everything!

Phil has extensive knowledge of Austin and the surrounding area. He did a great job of asking questions and listening and then recommending areas for me to look at. He was able to show me some areas that I had not previously considered and turns out was exactly what I was looking for. Phil is very comfortable with the whole process; you can tell he has been doing this for a long time. Everything went according to schedule, and he was always there to answer my questions. I guess the best thing I can say is that if I had to sell or buy another home, I wouldn't hesitate to call him up again.

We had a great experience with Phil. He worked with us patiently and always ready to help. We will highly recommend Phil and Realty Austin to anyone looking to buy or sell their home.

This was my first time buying a house, and Phil really helped us at every turn. I really appreciated all of his expertise and advise. We are very happy.

Phil was exceptional. He knows every sales associate at every builder’s name by heart. Every area by heart. Every school district with fact.

We went out one day to look at a neighborhood called Parkside at Mayfield, and walked into the one house that was $30,000 over our budget. Well, guess what, my wife was in love. Game over, I was doomed. My wife and I went to dinner after and we called Phil after. "Phil if we can get the cost down by $25k, we are in." 30 minutes later we get a call from Phil. "Albert, I talked to the President of the builder, the house is yours at the price you want." Unbelievable. Phil is our hero. We are in a dream house, dream backyard and we are absolutely in love. Our family will grow quite nicely in our home.

If it was not for Phil's patience, expertise, ethic and care I am positive that we would not be as happy in another home as we are in our home now. Thank you, Realty Austin, and especially Phil Hutson!

It was a pleasure working with Phil Hutson. He was very helpful throughout my whole home buying process, start to finish. Phil always would go the extra mile to make sure I am getting the best deal on my new home. Phil did not stop there, he frequently went over to my home as it was being built and made sure the home builder was building an excellent home. My wife and I really value and appreciate Phil's knowledge and expertise during this while life changing process.

Phil Hutson did an outstanding job as our realtor. His insight and experience proved to be such a tremendous asset in managing the sale of my Mom’s home. We simply cannot thank him enough for the great job he did. We were so fortunate to have such a professional and personable realtor who worked so diligently for us.

Phil Hutson was (and is) terrific.

I find that many aspects of moving really suck canal water. The stress of moving to another state compounds things.

Phil was a pleasure to meet and to work with. The man is loaded with local knowledge of climate, building and construction practices, and neighborhoods, all the things you would want a realtor to have.

My wife and I were very happy. Phil says "I'll be there at a particular time”. He'll be there early. If he feels that a particular area is just not right for the home buyer he will say so.

Direct, honest and reliable. Chris and I feel very fortunate to have made this connection. Phil helped us a great deal with the purchase of our new home and we feel that he was really focused on having us be happy.

I had never met Phil prior to listing our house for sale. He proved to be knowledgeable, very well informed about current real estate trends, and he worked tirelessly for us. His patience throughout the sales process was exemplary. Would we recommend him, and Realty Austin, to others? In a heartbeat.

Phil was wonderful to work with. He recognized what we were looking for immediately and steered us away from areas that he knew didn't fit our criteria. He was also very knowledgeable of the various builders, both custom and production. We really enjoyed working with him. We found a wonderful new house and friend!

We had a great experience with our old realtor in another state, but Phil Hutson was better than anything we had even expected! From start to finish, we felt that we were priority #1 for him, even taking an entire weekend of his time to look at a couple dozen homes.

Not only did Phil take us through the houses, but he gave constructive opinions on aspects of each house--not to scare us, but rather to clarify things that we didn't understand or didn't see. On top of everything, he was able to get us a better price on the house than we would have gone for, and was a pro at negotiating the specifics.

We will definitely recommend Phil to anyone and everyone looking for a realtor in the Austin area.

Phil Hutson is an honest and hardworking Realtor! I am a commercial Realtor in Ohio and was probably not the easiest client to work with as I am picky and expect a lot. It was a pleasure working with him. Phil is competent, honest and hard working. I could not ask for much more.

As a former mortgage banker I've seen every end of the real-estate spectrum, and Phil Hutson is at the very top.

From the first phone call when we, as Californian neophytes to the Austin market, began to learn the big picture, to the very end with a very kind and generous gift-basket personally chosen by Phil, we had a top-notch experience.

I might add that having gone through a succession of mortgage funders for our challenging loan (as flaky artists, our tax returns are eccentric), Phil not only found a private money lender who made it happen but stayed on top of each lender we worked with, the builder, the title process - we truly rested secure knowing we were in good hands. There was little doubt that the house we wanted would be ours, and that if it didn't happen another good one would come down the pike soon.

Realty Austin has a real asset in Phil, and any further Texas deals we do will have him at their center if at all possible. He adds luster to the organization - thanks for connecting us with him.

We were new to Round Rock and new to Texas. As first time home buyers we had a lot of questions and concerns. Phil Hutson was very knowledgeable and walked us through every step of the process. We couldn't have asked for a better experience!

When the Builder's on-site agent told me “..that's the most knowledgeable Realtor I have dealt with in my twelve years with this Builder – you're lucky you found him!” - it's something we already knew! Your expertise and knowledge of the areas, schools, and negotiating skills to get us this house at $20,000 less than the builders "best deal" was unbelievable! We love the community, and the schools are incredible! Thank you sooo much!!

Bo and Amanda H.

Phil was our 'selling agent' on one home, and our 'buyer agent' on 2 homes, and just recently sold our son his first home. We would not think of using anyone else in our family's real estate transactions.

George and C. D.

We have moved 5 times in the last 8 years and have never had as good an experience with a REALTOR as we did with Phil Hutson! All Realtors should have the same “mindset” as Phil – service BEFORE commission. Unfortunately, that had NOT been the case in some of our other purchases! Thank you for your Professionalism!

Chris and Pam C.

Our new home building experience had some pretty rough edges, but with Phil's expertise of new home construction and his help as liaison with the construction manager, the process was made a whole lot smoother, and we got a home built the way WE wanted it!

Larry and C. C.

I actually prayed about our move to Austin because we felt this was going to be a traumatic experience to uproot our 4 boys. I truly believe Phil was an answer to this prayer as he found us the perfect home, in the perfect neighborhood, for a good price, and the boys LOVE the schools!

Paul and D.U.

Being from back East we knew nothing about Austin and had no idea the type homes being built in Texas. Phil showed us several new home subdivisions and the different type homes of various builders, then not only explained the construction process, but as ours was being built, actually went on site on numerous occasions and did visual inspections with the construction superintendent! We were amazed!
