Rick Rabon



Buying Real Estate is like putting together an intricate puzzle, and sometimes it's hard to see the whole picture. Rick loves to help his clients put together the pieces of the Real Estate puzzle to complete that picture and make their Real Estate dreams come true. His goal is to make this as seamless, as problem-free, and as enjoyable as possible for his clients. He prepares them for the bumps ahead and gets them through with a few laughs along the way. For him it is important to get to know his clients in order to understand their Real Estate wants and needs, and he always keeps those wants and needs first and foremost.

His goal as your Real Estate agent is to help you make a real estate choice that will benefit you for many years to come. Rick considers himself fortunate to be able to translate his passions to a career.

Rick Rabon went beyond the task of being the "listing agent", he was most helpful in the remodeling process to selling the house to someone that we could be proud and would be a great fit for the neighborhood. Thanks on behalf of the Freytag family!

Loved working with Rick. He was very honest in letting me know about the market and timing of the sale of my house. I took all the feedback and recommendations he made to prep for the sale and we had an offer in less than two weeks.

Rick has helped us research the MLS and provided turnkey rental lease services for us. He's great to be around, works very hard and gets results quickly. We recommend Rick for all kinds of real estate services, especially in the south Austin area.

Rick is a patient and super helpful Realtor; he helped guide us through the process (we were first-time homebuyers) and did not get exhausted by our wanting to see scores of homes. He is honest and trustworthy and sincere, qualities we really appreciated during the stressful process of buying a house.

Rick Rabon is very professional, knowledgeable, and fun to work with! If you are planning to buy or sell - give him a call!

Rick is amazing! I have known him for quite some time prior to him being a real estate agent. I recently have been in the market to purchase a new home, and he has been such a big help. He is always prompt in his responses, listens to detail on the things that we want, and never ceases to amaze me with the properties that he has shown. I would highly recommend anyone in the market for a new home to work with him!!

Rick helped us sell our home and buy our new home. He was consistently kind, clear and knowledgeable. He was a joy to work with and he had wonderful advice. We sold our house for more than we hoped and got our dream home in return. I couldn't recommend him more highly!

We really enjoyed working with Rick. From the viewpoint of both buyer and seller, he has been on point. His team has been very communicative and helpful; I especially appreciated the help from the stager; she was great. Our house sold quickly, and at asking price, so we could not have asked for more. We are still working with him as buyers, and although we are very picky, and have seen many houses, he is still very involved and enthusiastic about helping us. Will highly recommend him to our friends and colleagues.

Both my wife and I were extremely satisfied with Rick. He made everything very easy for us and made the whole process of buying a house seem like a walk in the park. He was always available no matter the time of day and always made time for us. He was honest with us and helped us understand when something was or wasn't for our benefit. I felt secure in putting all my trust in him. He is also a very kind and generous person, and we're are proud to call him a friend. We could not be any happier with the way things turned out. We will definitely refer him to anyone thinking about buying a house in the future.

In a seller's market, it is important to find a Realtor who is reliable, experienced, and understanding. Rick Rabon embodied all of those qualities and much more! We found a home that we absolutely adored. Rick helped us put in the winning offer on a multiple-bid home. He knew the market inside and out; he made sure our offer was aggressive based on the comps and what the listing agent disclosed with him. He had great contacts for lender and inspection. Rick made this process easy and painless. I would recommend Rick Rabon to all buyers!

Rick Rabon will be the best realtor you ever work with. If you disagree with me, you are wrong. Hands down, super professional, friendly, and all around great person.

I worked with Reisha Lacey and Rick Rabon from Realty Austin to both sell my home and buy a new one. They both exceeded my expectations! They are fast and effective communicators with years of experience. They gave us very useful advice and steered us in the right direction. We sold our home for more than expected and faster than expected. We found our new home faster than expected and it's everything we could ever want. Throughout the whole process, Reisha and Rick were kind, patient and strategic. They answered all of my emails, texts and calls within moments and they made the whole process so much more manageable. It's very stressful to sell your home and buy a new one and I couldn't have asked for a more supportive team. I would highly, highly recommend working with them!

Rick Rabon was great. As a long time former employee and friend, it was great to work together again. As a first time rental home buyer, he held my hand the whole way, gave me contacts and educated me about the ins and outs of owning rental property. Icing on the cake is the leasing agreement Realty Austin has to help find the tenant. Thank you Rick!!!

Rick was incredible, so helpful, professional and responsive. He helped my fiancé and I find exactly what we needed when searching for an apartment when we moved from another state. It was an incredible feeling to have a place set up when we moved with a trustworthy company. Definitely recommend!

Rick exceeded our expectations! Rick was very very attentive to details and exceptional in getting answers for me that had to come from the buyers so yes, on a scale of 1-10, he's an absolute 10!

I have already referred him to 3 people looking to sell East Austin property. So thank y'all very very much!

I will say that we could not have had a better experience with a Realtor. From the initial meeting to closing day, Rick had our best interests in mind. When we first sat down with Rick to explain what we were looking for, I don't think Kelly and I really knew what kind of house or where we wanted to live. Rick took our temperature in what we really wanted and needed in a home and set up a very good search on the Realty Austin website.

We had some obstacles in getting pre-approved, but Rick pointed us in the right direction. As we worked on pre-approval Rick took a step back but still checked in every now and then to see how it was coming along. After about 3 to 4 months we were all set to start shopping for a new home. Rick made sure every house we looked at were homes that we favored and he included some that he felt fit what we were looking for.

We didn't expect to buy a home as fast as we did. But with Rick's help we found a perfect place for us and we felt comfortable with the whole process to move forward. As much help that Rick provided in the search of a new home, I felt Rick was most valuable in the steps leading to close. He was in constant communication with the builder and our lender. He made recommendations on inspectors and what we should be looking for, and he was there to help point out any issues that should be addressed by the builder before close.

At the end of the day it was the personal touch that Rick provided that made this process easy for us. This was a new experience for our family and there was some apprehension, but with Rick by our side it really helped put our mind at ease.

I would recommend Rick to anyone we know that is in need of a Realtor, and actually have already passed his information along.

Rick Rabon is my hero!!

Rick helped my wife and I buy our first home with ease. He was beyond patient, knowledgable, kind, helpful, punctual, responsive, and awesome. He literally helped us every step of the way from showing us properties, recommending contractors and lenders, as well as always following up with everyone. He is also a phenomenal negotiator and is just generally exceptional to work with. He is hands down THE BEST Realtor in town, and if you are a first time home buyer Rick will go above and beyond in helping you every step of the way. If my wife and I ever buy again we will most definitely call Rick - he is the perfect 10!

It was a pleasure working with Rick to find our new home. He was informative, friendly and was constantly available for any questions I had about the process. I'm very happy with the property that I purchased with his help and I couldn't have done it without his expertise and patience.

Thanks again for all of your hard work at Realty Austin.

Rick is AWESOME!!! If you were thinking about someone else slap yourself across the face and just pick Rick. You won't regret it. He is knowledgeable, gets everything done quickly, is always available to answer questions, works with great lenders, and is all around excellent. He also is super personable and really makes you feel like you are his only client. Thanks, Rick.

Having a friend by your side helps, especially when it gets tough. I think we had that in Rick as we bought our first home. I am not sure we would have survived it without Rick on our side.

I understand being a good Realtor is a tightrope walk. Often, you work with people who are total novices making their life's biggest investment. Rick perfected this tightrope walk. Starting from our initial contact till the closing date he was very attentive to what we wanted from the house. He never tried to push us into making decisions we didn't want to. At the same time, he was very clear letting us know our pros and cons of all the options.

Give Rick a chance... and he will fight for you and make your home buying experience as good as it can be.

Rick Rabon is the best--smart advice, savvy negotiation, assertive with the selling agent on my behalf, tenacious on addressing every detail throughout, trustworthy, quick response times AND fun to work with. I consider myself very lucky to have found Rick. I've bought and sold lots of property over the years. Rick is the best agent I've ever had the pleasure to work with. Thank you, Rick!

Not only was Rick of great professional assistance in our home search, he was someone we grew to trust and respect as a friend as well. We kept in contact with Rick during the time we were in Texas and, as a result, when it came time for us to sell our home and return to Arizona, the first number we called was Rick's. There was no need to research other options as we already trusted him completely. Rick was a consummate professional at all times, providing us with all the time we requested, answering our endless (and probably naive) questions with interest and accuracy. He never made us feel that his needs or agenda were a priority over our time and energy. In essence, we were always right (even when we were wrong). He was just so patient with us that it helped relieve the stress of trying to pack up our belongings, live in a pristine house and leaving at the whim of potential buyers, and prepare for a cross-country move that we dreaded. That was probably his most valuable skill for us - he made us comfortable with every decision we made.

Rick Rabon has made a friend for life with the Mannings. We felt he went above and beyond, with the whole house purchasing process. We have and will continue to recommend Rick as the agent to have.

November 2015

It was a joy working with Rick Rabon. I selected Rick because he had earned my trust in his previous line of work. I also liked the fact that he lives in my neighborhood. I never considered anyone else when I began my search for a modest house to rent to my daughter and son-in-law.

He respected my modest budget and I felt that he was very supportive and transparent during the entire process. I complicated the process for him with my financing (using a home equity loan to purchase the new house) choice. Once I contacted him there was what seemed like a very long waiting period before my loan was finalized. He patiently checked with me and UFCU on a regular (but not obnoxious) basis . While we waited to be in a position to begin our search and make offers, I went to as many open houses as I could just to get a feel for what was out there in my price range. As it turned out I discovered the "perfect" property just as the loan approval was being finalized. At that point Rick set everything in motion. I made an offer and the sellers countered with a slightly higher amount. I declined their counter offer and Rick respected my choice to hold firm to my upper limit. To my surprise, the sellers did accept my offer and the rest of the process went smoothly. Rick did an excellent job of explaining every step of the process to me and calming my anxiety at taking this huge step.

I feel very satisfied that Rick did all he could to represent my best interests. In addition he is just a nice pleasant person and he is very easy work with. (I came across a couple of very weird realtors in my open house visits!).

It was a pleasure working with Rick and I would definitely recommend him to others.

My husband and I just recently purchased our first house in August. We really didn't know where to start, but Rick was there. He was always available either by phone or email to answer our numerous questions. He showed great patience throughout the whole buying process. I regularly work weekends and nights, and Rick was always available on weekend evenings to accommodate us. He has even been available after we moved in to assist with questions. We felt that Rick always had our best interest and never pushed us to simply make a sell.


November 2015

Rick Rabon is one "Amazing " Realtor. He gets a rating of 101%. He goes beyond to make sure we understand. And explains everything. He is a Great Investment for your Company. Hold on to him.

Thank you kindly Rick. Your the best!

Rick came strongly recommended by a friend and she was right. Rick you were a real help in our search for a new house in Austin. We know we're not the easiest clients: limited budget, not knowing Austin and the different neighborhoods, close to daycare and work downtown, big garden, far from the train noise, hesitating between an apartment in Soco or a house in a calm neighborhood.

Rick kept patient and informed us with several options. He also was always in time at our multiple appointments. When we could not make it in person he even filmed the property for us and sent us the links. What we really appreciated as well was that Rick really let us decide and gave his advice when we asked for it but without influencing us to push the deal through. Another great thing was that Rick was always available for us even late in the evening and in the weekends. Rick is very personable and a good listener.

We would definitely recommend Rick and his services to someone looking for a professional realtor in Austin.

Thanks again, our house is awesome!

I am so pleased with Rick. He was so knowledgable, gave me advice and suggestions when needed, and made closing a really smooth and great experience. I would definitely refer my family and friends to Realty Austin and Rick in particular. Great investment, I am grateful to have Rick as my Realtor. Thanks so much!

I have used Rick Rabon, one of Reality Austin's agent, to buy my house recently. He had been very professional all along, i.e. never tired of my request for checking houses at any day of the week, or anytime of the day. He carried himself in a gentle manner through out the whole buying process. If anybody is looking to buy a house in Austin, TX area, I would definitely recommend talking to Rick and Reality Austin. Satisfaction guaranteed!

We enjoyed working with Rick Rabon. Thanks to his advise and hands on style, we were able to sell our property before it went to market and for the asking price! We were out of state sellers so Rick helped us with diverse tasks to get the property ready to market. Because of him, we were able to sell the property without having to be on site. Rick is profession, responsive, kind, and bakes the best christmas cookies. I highly recommend him. Thank you Rick for all you did for us!

Are you looking for an honest, responsive, knowledgeable and friendly realtor who will meet and exceed your expectations? Well, your search stops here. My wife and I were first time homebuyers and had no clue what we were getting into. We were like lost puppies searching, sniffing and getting lost in unknown territory; until we wandered into a model home, met Rick and instantly knew he was going to help us find our way. Now I am in sales, so I am very good at telling when someone is putting on an act and trying to make a quick buck. But Rick, greeted us with a huge smile a firm handshake and took the time to listen to us and build a relationship before even talking about business. Throughout the entire process, he was thorough and responsive. If I had a question I got the answer with an explanation that I could easily understand and fast! Last thing I would like to note is that Rick is very passionate about what he does. You can just see in his eyes that he prides himself in truly looking out for his clients. We plan on buying an investment property within the next 3-4 years and can’t wait to work with him again.

Rick if you are reading this, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts and are so happy with our new home!

We are so glad we used Rick as our agent when we bought our new “forever” home. In addition to being very knowledgeable about Austin and the home buying process in general, Rick made both the home search and home buying experience less stressful with his positive attitude, professionalism and attention to detail. Rick is very reliable and dependable; he responded to all our calls and emails promptly, answered all of our questions (and we had a lot of them,) and was always willing and available to take us to houses we wanted to see when it fit into our schedule. Rick is also skilled people person, which came in handy often, particularly with helping us figure out our must-have items, and also with making a house hunting weekend with our extended family fun and enjoyable! Because Rick did such a great job finding us our forever home, we probably won’t need his services again. However, we can highly recommend him to anyone else buying or selling a home and should we ever be lucky enough to be in the market for a vacation home, he will be the first person we call!

Megan Bell

Rick was a really wonderful RE agent. As a new home buyer in the Austin area, he was very informative of options based upon goals, and always had answers to questions. He listened well, was readily available, extremely knowledgeable, and a professional in all respects. He truly wants to make his clients happy, and is well networked with reputable services affiliated to buying a home (ie: mortgage lenders, home inspectors, contractors, etc.). Bottom line, Rick is there for you!

Connie Howard

I would recommend Rick to anyone going through the process of buying, renting, or selling a home. He took care of me in a very tough transition with his knowledge, kindness and efficiency. I don't know what I would have done without him and I am very grateful.

Cecille Arnold

Rick Rabon recently helped my husband and I purchase our first home together! Rick was extremely helpful and attentive throughout the entire home buying process. He worked with the two of us to come up with a search that met our criteria and was readily available if there was a home that we were interested in viewing. Additionally, when it came time to make an offer, Rick was very knowledgeable and helped us to present an offer that was reasonable and more importantly, an offer that we felt comfortable with. He continued to check on us and be prompt and diligent through our closing date. I would highly recommend Rick and would happily use him as our realtor again!

Meredith Carlton

When I thought about selling my house it was an overwhelming idea and I didn't know how long the process would take. I was nervous because I was moving out of town an hour away, so my house would have to be shown and sold while I wasn't there. Rick was the best realtor I could have wished or dreamed for. He reassured me that everything would be taken care of and went the extra mile to call, text, and email to keep me in the loop through the whole process. When I called Rick to be my realtor, I told him that we would have to list the house as soon as possible. He went to work immediately and had the house listed in less than a week and had the first open house that Saturday. It was unbelievable how quickly my house started showing and how great he was at marketing it. The house had a full-price offer after being on the market for less than a week and everything went smoothly through closing. Rick was on top of everything and sent me documents through email for me to sign and made me feel secure that he was taking care of everything needed. The process of selling my house could not have gone any smoother. I highly recommend Rick as a realtor, not only for his skills and knowledge in the business but also for his care and customer service. Though I am no longer living in the Austin area, I have recommended him and will continue to send friends his way. He is hard working, knowledgeable, personable, and overall great at what he does.

Laura Garcia

Rick was extremely easy to work with. I have trouble taking phone calls during the day, so he was accommodating by communicating via text/email. Rick went out of his way to help me with additional errands in the area, such as offering to find a short term extend-a-stay and helping us with a lock changing solution. Very easy to work with and made the experience enjoyable.

Devin Gates

I would like to take this opportunity to talk about our real estate agent, Rick Rabon, who recently helped my wife and I find a home in the Austin, Texas area. Rick was tireless in his efforts to help us in our search and was always available when I needed to talk through issues. My wife and I were very happy with Rick's services. Moreover, we now count him as one of our first friends in the Austin area. My wife and I highly recommend you give Rick a try if you are looking to enter the Austin area market.

Ken Murray

Rick Rabon was absolutely vital in helping me sell my home quickly and ensuring that it sold for its true value. Up until the day of closing Rick was always available, day or night, rain or shine, to answer questions via e-mail, phone, or text. I have never met a more caring, hardworking, or dedicated realtor, and would not hesitate to recommend Rick for any home sale. Rick's pleasant demeanor and low-pressure approach meant that I never felt uncomfortable when making an offer on a home. I knew that Rick was always advocating for me during the purchase process and his boundless energy kept me going until the end. Even after the closing process was complete Rick made sure that I was 100% satisfied with the purchase of my new home. Words simply cannot express the amount of respect and gratitude I have for Rick and all he did for me throughout this time.

Sammy Alvanipour

Rick was such a help to myself and three roommates. We were looking to rent a house, and had no idea what to do. Rick was able to narrow what we wanted, make viewings, and he always responded quickly to any questions I had. He even took time from the Easter holiday to show us homes and help us with the process of applying.

He was friendly, and very professional. I highly recommend him.

Megan Moxley

Rick is awesome!!! He is honest, professional yet funny and fun to be around. He always acted in our best interest. We highly recommend him as an agent!!

Valeria DeLuna

We needed to find a house to rent in South Austin so we could move from North Carolina. Once we had our closing date for our NC home, we immediately began our search in Austin and one of the properties we were interested in online was listed by Rick. As is often the case in Austin, that property was no longer available but Rick quickly put together a search report for us based on all of our criteria, contacted the other realtors to set up appointments for our daughter, who already lived in Austin, to check out the properties, and helped us complete and submit all the appropriate paperwork in time to secure a good landing spot for us.

While other realtors could have offered to do the same for us, they didn't. And while Rick received a finders fee from the realtor we rented from for his efforts, it was extremely valuable to us to have a knowledgeable representative on site. We certainly appreciate Rick's commitment to creating long term relationships and will no doubt contact Rick when we begin our search to purchase a home.
