Rachel Hoffman


Rachel grew up in New Orleans but has been a happy Austin resident for over 20 years. She started her professional career in retail sales and management and became quite good at it. Real estate offered the attraction to work for herself and develop her entrepreneurial skills while leveraging her retail sales and management experience. Rachel began her real estate career over 10 years ago and has specialized in residential sales, investment properties and leasing in both the UT campus area and all over Austin. Rachel's expertise and professionalism has shown through in every transaction resulting in a long list of loyal clients that trust in her ability to help them find the right property or get their properties sold in a timely manner. Leasing is where she got her start, which was crucial to her ability to analyze potential future returns on investment properties. Over the years Rachel has closed many investment property transactions for many satisfied client investors.

“I believe that the key to being a great Realtor is simple. Be available and prompt. Treat each transaction as if it were your own.”

This was my first experience buying a home and Rachel Hoffman was wonderful! She was very informative and very professional. She definitely made my first time home buying experience great and easy. I would definitely recommend her as well as Realty Austin to anyone trying to buy a home. I'm so happy with my new home!

This was my wife and I's very 1st experience here in Austin buying a home. With my wife being a Foreign National from Tokyo Japan, we knew real estate terminology and the understanding of the real estate process could be an issue for us.

I'm an easy going guy and usually just go with the flow of things, but my wife is not that way at all, she's very meticulous and detailed when it comes to assessing a product in regards to making any purchase. At times she can be very difficult, but almost all of the time her meticulous assessment of things always ensures we are getting the product or the services deserved for the money spent.

Rachel Hoffman was an instrumental part in ensuring my wife was very comfortable with the process! Rachel ensured my wife had a complete understanding of the entire real estate process and took as much time as necessary to ensure special consideration to my wife's needs, no matter how long it took.

In addition, Rachel had an extensive amount of resources associated with the home buying process which could have easily made our real estate experience a one stop shop with external needs we asked about for our new home, i.e. Tree Trimmers, Home Inspector, 360 Home Connect, Loan Company, Wood Floor Companies, Roofers, Pest inspectors, painters, and the list goes on!

Of course, my wife did not use all of the resources Rachel provided but it gave my wife a great template to gauge off of which was a tremendous help in my wife's ability to compare analysis. All of the suggested resources Rachel provided were above standard, and my wife was very impressed and pleased with Rachel's professionalism and understanding of external needs a home buyer may want in addition to the Real Estate process.

We both were very pleased with Rachel's work ethic and availability to us during the entire process! There were times late at night my wife had questions and Rachel was open to me texting her anytime no matter what time it was. I always got an immediate response from Rachel or a phone call to further discuss. Great Customer Service!

We will be suggesting Rachel to anyone we meet in the future that's in the market for buying a home! Rachel was able to do what many other real estate agents could not do! And that was to get us into a Home in East Oak Hill within our price range!

We submitted 7 offers for homes in this neighborhood with No JOY! Rachel gave us our JOY on her 1st try and we really appreciate it!

In our opinion, Rachel deserves a Formal Appreciation, a Bonus, a Promotion, if any of those things are available :) She literally made my wife and family DREAMS COME TRUE by putting us in a home in an area we thought was an impossible accomplishment.

Thank You Realty Austin! And Thank you so much Rachel Hoffman!

I had the BEST experience working with Rachel Hoffman. Our file wasn't an easy one, but I would have never known because Rachel handled everything! She made buying our first home an easy and enjoyable experience. Thank you so much, Rachel, for everything you do!! It means the world to us! We LOVE our new house.

I have worked with Rachel on seven transactions over the past five or six years. She is organized, proactive and I always feel she has my best interest in mind throughout the entire process. Above all, she is personable and communicates in a clear and concise manner. I would have no problem referring her to anyone who is looking at property in Texas. I look forward to the next deal she puts together for me.

I had a great experience working with Rachel Hoffman. As a first time home buyer, I had tons of questions about the entire process and Rachel patiently walked me through every step. After visiting about 40 properties in only a month Rachel helped me negotiate pricing on a home that I love and successfully navigated a two-week close.

Searching for a home is definitely not a process many enjoy going through (myself included). It's extremely important to have the right people working with you in order to help ease the suffering. This is exactly that type of company

My wife and I were recently in the market for a new home and came across Realty Austin. Our agent, Rachel Hoffman, was absolutely fantastic. We could not have asked for a more hard working and thorough agent to handle this. Between answering phones calls and emails within mere minutes, scouting out potentials and crunching numbers prior to presenting them to us, and visiting places for us (as we were unable to do so from afar) without hesitation, she was amazing.

The painful process ended up being anything but that. If you're in Austin (or planning on making a move) look no further than here. We'll absolutely use them again in the future!

My husband and I had a wonderful experience dealing with Realty Austin because of Rachel. We were looking for our first investment property in Austin remotely (from NY). Due to this fact, this could have easily been a very stressful and exhaustive experience, however, due to Rachel's expertise and excellent communication skills, this experience seemed easy and smooth.

We were also impressed at how knowledgeable Rachel is with investment properties which benefited us greatly. She always seemed one step ahead of us and was quick to check houses for us within a few hours. There were times when I felt like we were her only clients even though I know this was not the case; she always made us feel like a priority.

I would use Realty Austin and Rachel Hoffman in a heartbeat!

Rachel was absolutely great. Not only was she proactive and as aggressive as I needed her to be, but she was also patient and understanding. I felt that she had my best interests at heart when it came to properties, location and value. She gave me some invaluable advice that I will continue to use. I would recommend her to friends, family, and coworkers. I look forward to working with her in the future!

It was a pleasure to work wth her for sure. The first time she took us out we had no idea if we were actually going to move to Texas. It was basically a fact-finding tour to see if we would like it and even wanted to move at all. Even knowing that, she took us all over the area from Bastrop to Liberty Hill and everywhere inbetween. She did an excellent job trying to understand what we might be looking for, even when we weren't sure ourselves.

After returnning to Connecticut, she continued to send us listings that she felt met our needs and remained in contact with us. Again, during the second visit Rachel had multiple houses set up for us to view, including new builds. All the while she remained patient and professional, never really knowing whether we would or wouldn't eventually buy a house. She always had a smile and a friendly face to greet us. Thoughout, her feedback and advice were invaluable.

After we made an offer, Rachel remained involved to provide support and guidance. We truly appreciate all she did for us and will definitely recommend her and Realty Austin to anyone who may be in need of a realtor.

This review is for Rachel Hoffman. It is my pleasure to recommend Rachel Hoffman as a real estate agent. When my wife and I decided to move back to Texas, we knew little about Austin. I had signed up for one of the Austin community magazines and I receives a few inquires from agents. Rachel was one of them. She was friendly and professional in her emails and on the phone. After meeting her in person, we both felt we could trust and rely on her experience and expertise. Our faith was well placed as she assisted us in finding and negotiating the perfect house for us. We can not express enough our thanks to Rachel for her assistance.

We chose to go with Rachel with our move from New York City because she consistently and respectfully stayed in touch with us over many months, checking in regarding our moving plans and needs and letting us know that we could contact her with any questions. We liked that she did that and was not intrusive about it. When we finally spoke on the phone, we also really liked that she sounded genuine and down to earth. When we decided we were definitely moving, Rachel was always super responsive at any hour of the day. She went and viewed houses for us and Face Timed us to give us virtual tours, picked us up at the airport when we flew in to see places we were interested in and maintained an open and consistent line of communication regarding our changing needs and wishes.

Rachel worked very hard on our behalf and we are very grateful for that and for helping us find our new home.

Rachel exceeded her responsibilities as our realtor. She was easy to reach when needed, easy to talk to. If she didn't know the answer, she would find out. She knew the right thing to do in every circumstance. I would recommend Rachel to anyone looking for a realtor.

Rachel Hoffman is the best Realtor in the business. She has sold me two properties so far and one to my best friend. She will work with you to find the property you want. Once she told me "I want to see that "Wow" expression in your face when you find the right one, I haven't seen it yet, so let's keep looking."

She really works diligently to make sure that her clients are happy and her network of lenders, inspectors, etc is amazing... If you have the opportunity to work with her, do so.. You will be happy you did!!

Rachel has been helping me with real estate leasing for the past 7 years. She is one of the best and finest realtors I have come across in this industry. Rachel has excellent knowledge of the Austin market and has been supporting us every step of the way in our leasing, all the way from the market analysis to closing the lease. To describe her in few words is going to be a challenge. But, here are the few that I liked the most about her - very proactive, attentive to details, incredibly responsive, can tackle any obstacle with ease and has impeccable negotiation skills. She goes above and beyond the call of duty and even helps us out with the final walkthroughs, when the tenant moves out. I will definitely recommend her and Realty Austin for any real estate leasing Services.

Rachel was an absolute pleasure to work with and I would highly recommend her without reservation to anyone looking to buy or sell real estate. I couldn’t have selected a better agent to help me with the process of finding a home in Austin while still living in New Orleans.

Rachel is knowledgeable, enthusiastic, professional, and always responsive and available if I had questions or concerns. She provided me with a great set of knowledgeable and friendly contacts that easily allowed me to apply for a loan, have an appraisal and inspection done, and all other aspect of the house purchase while still living out of town.

Thank you again Rachel for helping me to find my dream home!

My family was relocated to the Austin area from Connecticut, and had no idea where to start. I found the Realty Austin website and was contacted by Rachel through the site. I told her about an upcoming house hunting trip and she said we could meet up and tour some properties. I was very nervous about working with an agent I met online, but I knew as soon as we met in the Round Rock office that she would be the perfect person to help us find our house. We only had two days to find a house or we'd have to rent, so Rachel and I met to discuss options - both ones I had "liked" on the site, and ones she recommended. We saw nearly 10 properties the first day and put in an offer on a great home. Since the Austin market is super competitive we didn't get that house, but Rachel used her networking skills to get a showing at a pocket listing the next day. After a very tiring and frustrating home search, the last house we saw was Rachel's pocket listing. When I walked in the door I cried. It was my dream house. I can't express enough to you how thankful I am for Rachel being able to find us a diamond in the rough, in our price range, that appraised for more than we paid. We have a beautiful home, and are all here in Round Rock together thanks to Rachel's hard work.

My parents are considering following us to the Austin area, and I have already recommended Rachel to them.

I worked with Rachel Hoffman for over a year on finding my first home. She has been not only patient and always accessible to my needs, but also a great ball of energy! Rachel was always there to answer any questions I had on home ownership or act on any request that came her way. She was great to work with and I would recommend her to anyone looking for someone who is has a true "go-getter" attitude. Her hard work really shows with her connections in the business and with her current and past clients.

We are in the process of purchasing a fourplex in Austin, and Rachel Hoffman is our agent. Rachel has been amazing to work with. She has made this process seamless considering the distance between us. Rachel continues to stay on top of all aspects of the transaction, even thinking many steps ahead and bringing topics up for discussion so that there are no last minute catastrophes. Perhaps, you are looking to buy or sell, or if you know of anyone who is, Rachel is the contact to make it happen.

Mark Durkin, Facebook Review

My initial contact with Rachel was regarding a property that she had listed in the UT area. It was evident in the initial moments that Rachel possessed an understanding of the Austin market and my expectations regarding rental properties. She is very honest in her assessments and statements which I value as I do not live in Texas, therefore I am not able to to look at every property that is a possible option.

Once I knew that Rachel would be my "go to" person for income properties, my focus shifted to that of a leasing / property management company. My primary requirement for my properties was that they be fully occupied. Rachel contacted me regarding a property that she felt we should pursue. After reviewing the details, she promptly stated that the property was half occupied and understood this was a major concern of mine. She very matter of factly stated that the she would have it leased in less than city average of 45 days. She leased the vacant units in 28 days.

As I write this letter of recommendation, Rachel and I are in the process of purchasing another property. Once again, she has outlined what she feels are the best options relative to value and that of rental income.

In closing, I whole heartedly recommend Rachel for your purchase and leasing needs. She is honest, thoughtful, caring and tenacious.

This is to appreciate Rachel Hoffman who listed and closed my house in no time. I was so happy with her speed and excellent updates. I wish I had more words to express my happiness. She is the best in her work. I am going to use her for life in whatever Real Estate transactions I do.
