Rick White

REALTOR®

As a longtime resident of the greater Austin area for 30+ years, Rick has seen the area grow to become one of the most sought after areas of the entire United States to call home, going from “small town” to “boom town”. If you have an interest in real estate in the Greater-Austin area, you probably already know how strong the market is.

Growing up in the Austin area initially led Rick to the music industry. After graduating from the University of Texas with a degree in music, he spent several years touring the world with the Legends of Los Vegas, entertaining United States armed forces, as well as playing on numerous albums, including the Grammy nominated “Celebration of Life”. While music continued to be a vital component of his life, eventually touring got in the way of starting a family. Rick is married and has a wonderful wife, Amy, and two beautiful, intelligent children, Blake and Barbara. In his spare time he can be seen performing with the legendary Dale Watson as member of the Three Wise Guys horn section, most Thursdays at the Highball in Austin.

Rick realizes that there are many factors involved in making the decision to buy or sell your home, and that the best tool in his toolbox are his ears. Listening to his client’s needs to find out where they are trying to go in the world of real estate is among the best skills that he has. These big ears, coupled with the knowledge necessary to provide the information, skill and expertise needed to thrive in the dynamic Greater Austin real estate market, make a Rick a standout among agents in the area.

Purchasing his first home created in Rick a desire to learn more about real estate, and led to him eventually making it a livelihood. The feeling of ownership and community engagement is a feeling he hopes more and more people will get to experience with his help. After buying your first piece of real estate, one becomes acutely aware that they aren’t making any more of it, and that’s why it continues to be one of the few investments you can make in this life that holds its value. Whether purchasing a first home or selling an existing home, Rick enjoys making it his business to help his clients get the job done in the best, most financially rewarding way possible.

Stick with Rick!

Rick exceeded my expectations and felt comfortable with Rick immediately. He is very professional, patient, interesting and kind. We had great conversations while driving and looking at houses in Buda, Kyle, Dripping Springs, Bastrop and one other area that was far from Austin. What a beautiful drive that was. Rick was helpful in telling me things he thought was wrong with the house and let me walk around the homes by myself to check the house and the grounds out. We have even gone to see him play with Dale Watson at the Highball. Hope to see him play again, and will invite him when we are all put together and have our first party. I would definitely recommend Rick to family and friends.

Rick has been patient with us for the last 18 months while we considered whether to make a local move from Cedar Park to Austin. He always provided a frank perspective on the market and whether something seemed like a sound move for us. We appreciated his low-key but persistent approach in helping us find what suits us. Now he is working with us on the sale of our house and has been so responsive and "on it" in all aspects of the sale. We have truly felt like he's our representative in both of these transactions. And all of this is done with a sense of humor that has been much appreciated. I would recommend him to anyone looking for a Realtor in the area.

Rick White did an amazing job with our recent home purchase. After telling him what we were looking for, he found it on the first try. He was there at every step of the process and really went above and beyond for us. We are very happy. Thank you!

Rick helped us with our first home purchase. The process was a bit scary for us as we really didn't know what we were getting into but he tried to make sure we had information up front to understand the process before we even got started. Once we were ready to start looking he made every attempt to be available for us without making us feel as if we were under too much pressure to purchase anything, the housing market being what it is in Austin we kind of put that on ourselves.

Once we found something he tried to make sure we felt we were given a good deal and felt comfortable with everything which was much appreciated. Besides the fact that he was a cool guy in general, he made the house hunting effort not as big of a chore. In the end we are more than happy, we love our new home and are glad we chose Rick to help us along the way.

Rick White was my Realtor who helped me and he went out of his way to show me many properties and educate me on the Round Rock real estate market. He was patient and even helped with family that was involved with the search. He is very knowledgeable about the market in Texas and showed himself to be honest about what he was showing. He never tried to make a quick sale and run. I will use Rick again in the future and highly recommend him to those in search of their dream home.

Rick's ability to navigate the selling and purchasing process made Denise and I a lifelong cheerleader for Rick White. From offer consideration to closing on the sale, to offer and purchase closing, Rick's advocating for our best interest make a statement of your organization and it's ideals. His marketing technique created a frenzy effect that allowed us to have a motivated buyer all the way to negotiations with the seller on our new home. I have been through this life change event with the sale of five homes and find Rick to be the best.

Rick built this sale from scratch. He planted the seed and saw it through to fruition. I was not considering a home purchase when Rick first mentioned he was a Realtor. My experience as an account manager for national company affords me the ability to recognize Rick's skill. I didn't ONCE feel like I was in a sales experience throughout the whole process.

Rick instantly became a resource for me. Was completely patient with me yet helped drive me in the right direction so I could more efficiently visualize what I wanted - what really made sense for me. There was a creative process to seeking real estate I was able to realize thanks to Rick.

The fun part of working with Rick is recommending him to friends and colleagues. Rick has a deserved reputation as a resource for people. I've seen him plant the seed in others. As a sales guy myself I consider a big part of our deal and opportunities to see him working with others - as a mentor situation. I absolutely respect his ability to transparently present himself as a professional resource. This exceptional ability draws clients to him. I've seen it!! Great opportunity for me to learn some serious networking chops.

Rick, I feel, went totally above and beyond on this deal. It was an enjoyable experience and BECAUSE OF RICK I am saving a ton of money by finally investing in property - this has made quite a difference in the quality of my life/work balance. Can't wait to finish this house and get to work with him on the next property.

I'm a super critical sales guy always looking to call BS. I don't think I've ever written anything like this! You guys are lucky to have him, but I'm sure you all know that and I'm sure he mentors people over there, Realty Austin seems to be successful.

Grateful for the opportunity to work with Rick, my quality of life is better because of it.

Rick White did an exceptional job as our Realtor, and he will be our Realtor from here on out if we ever need one again. I feel like he moved Heaven and Earth to keep us happy at every point of this process, both selling our house and finding our new one. He was very accessible at all times, prompt for appointments and highly skilled at advocating for his clients (us). This was my third experience shopping for houses with a realtor and, by far, our best experience. I think Rick is doing what he loves, and you all are lucky to have him at Realty Austin. I would most certainly recommend him to anyone else looking to buy or sell real estate. Moreover, I would recommend him in the highest and without reservation.

My wife and I purchased our first home with another Realtor and everything was fine, but Rick White was my Realtor when it came time to sell. He made the selling process very easy and fast; we had multiple great offers within 24 hours of listing! When it was time to buy a new home, it was a no-brainer to "Stick with Rick" and we couldn't have been happier with the job he did. Even though we were buying in San Antonio, Rick made it happen!Throughout the entire process he was professional, knowledgeable, and trustworthy. He answered any question we could come up with. He was supportive of our opinions and pointed out specific problems and explained potential points of concern; at no point did we feel any pressure to make an offer on a home that wasn't perfect. He was always available when we would send him messages. Once we were ready to make an offer, Rick was invaluable in helping us prepare and schedule inspections and put us in touch with a reputable loan officer. He kept in constant communication with the selling agent and provided critical advice that ended up winning the deal. Without his help we would not be currently living in our beautiful home. "Stick with Rick" and you won't be sorry!

My husband and I have worked with Rick White to sell and buy. Both home experiences have been professional, smooth, quick and fun. Austin Realty and Rick White have my highest recommendation. Stick with Rick!

Amanda Stevenson, Google+ Review

My wife and I decided to sell our house on a Friday night, Rick had it listed on MLS by Monday, and it sold by Wednesday. He used an excellent photographer and had great ideas on how to showcase our home. He even helped us move! Rick is charismatic, confident, and very cool under pressure. We love our new home and neighborhood and we encourage everyone to "Stick With Rick”.

Matt Russell

Rick is a fantastic agent, very pleasant to work with. My family and I were looking for a house with a great school district and within our budget and thanks to Rick, that’s exactly what we got.

Rick really understands the market and will do what it to make sure you have the best advantages to buying your house. There were numerous times when my husband and I would write to Rick about a property (to see) in the morning and Rick would make the arrangements for us to see it that afternoon/evening. When we wanted to make an offer, he efficiently walked us through the process and answered all of our questions, which was great as we were first time homebuyers.

Another thing I really appreciated was that helping people buy a great house is his number one priority – it’s not just about making the sale for Rick. My family and I were on a tight timeframe for buying a house and instead of pushing every house we looked at, Rick made a list of pros and cons for each house! He noticed things we didn’t see, both good and bad.

As I said, Rick is a fantastic agent and genuinely wants to help people find their home. He found my family a house we love in a lovely neighborhood. His number is saved in my phone because I will always “Stick with Rick”.

When our last landlord asked us kindly to move so the house could be sold, we discovered that after being in the same home for over 4 years, our rent was to increase about 40%. It was time to take a serious look at buying our first home in Austin. My husband works with Rick as a musician, and we decided to work with Rick to find a home in South Austin. We were on a deadline and needed to be in our new place within a couple of months, so Rick made time for us right away.

While my husband was out of town visiting family, Rick and I started the search in South Austin. Well, long story short- the first home we viewed was the one. We submitted an offer that same day. We did view several other properties, and Rick really listened to our needs/wants and also pointed out things that we never would have noticed, good and bad.

In a multiple offer situation, Rick encouraged us to present the best offer we could, and did a great job at setting our expectations. We were very happy we listened to his advice, because we felt really smart when our offer was accepted! What could have been stressful process became very easy, and everything went smoothly from there. Rick and all of his recommended vendors were always very prompt and responsive, and we closed in less than 30 days. Now we have a wonderful home, and I spend a lot less time in traffic (and complaining about it).

My son and I met Rick at a open house in a community and he offered to help me find a home in Austin. He gave us his card and spent a few minutes finding out about me and my needs. In the meantime, I had been working with another realtor who I was quickly getting disappointed with due to her lack of service. A few weeks later, on my next visit to Austin from the East coast over the holidays last year, I gave Rick a call and we scheduled a meeting at my son's home in Austin to discuss my needs. Rick cleared his schedule for me, researched several homes after determining an area to focus on and we spent several days visiting the homes. Within a week, I had found a home that I liked and made an offer. Rick researched the homes in the area and prepared a comparative report and reviewed it with me. We discussed an initial offer and he presented it to the seller/builder; the seller responded and we countered with an offer that was accepted. Rick observed the inspection with my son and the inspector. He attended the settlement, as I had signed the paperwork via internet services and delivered the keys to my son in Austin, since I was on the East coast selling my home there. When I finally moved to Austin about 6 weeks later, Rick welcomed me to Austin! I would highly recommend Rick White as a full service realtor. He provided me with a high level of customer care and he has the knowledge for the details involved in purchasing a property. Most of all, he is dependable and follows through with all of your requests as he aims to please his clients certainly indicative of someone who loves his work!

As first time home buyers we were not sure of the process of home buying. We were very happy that we found. He took the time to explain in details the step by step process involved. He was very patient with all our questions and guided us along the way. I will truly recommend Rick. He is very punctual and very easy to work with. He was there to answer my late night questions on properties.

I appreciate all the help and work he did to find us an excellent home.

Kadami Family

Rick White gave us a professional and smooth experience during the selling of our home. He provided important and detailed information in a manageable style. Very welcoming and fun to work with. Our home sold in hours and we had multiple offers to choose from. Stick with Rick!!

Stevenson Family

Rick gives you the customer service, knowledge, understanding and that "grand feeling of being cared about" when purchasing a home! Rick listens to all your needs, scopes neighbors and delivers. You will be completely satisfied with everything that Rick offers when buying your home.
