Romeo grew up in Los Angeles, California enjoying all of the area's attractions, events, and fast-paced lifestyle. But after a successful military career as a U.S. Navy Officer, Romeo decided to call Austin home because of its booming economy, scenic beauty and quality of life. While working as an Operations Manager for Dell, he became involved with Habitat for Humanity, donating his time in assisting with the construction of low-income family housing and working alongside others who freely gave of themselves to improve the lives of those around them. It was this positive experience of giving back to the community that would later mold his decision to become a real estate professional.

Romeo's unique life experiences while serving in the military and working in both private and corporate organizations has made him a well-rounded person that easily connects with his clients on different levels. His focus on family life with his wife and son has helped him gain a deeper appreciation of spending quality time at home. It is this same passion of assisting others in finding their perfect home that motivates Romeo to provide his clients with a level of personal service that is rare today. Romeo was also named CitySearch's #1 Rated Realtor in Austin in 2007.

Romeo has been an active member of the Austin Board of Realtors since 2006 and has served on various committees including Grievance, Installation, Professional Development, MLS and Strategic Planning. Romeo also served as a Director for ABoR from 2015-2017 and is the 2019 ABoR President-Elect. On the state level, Romeo is a Professional Standards member and Mediator for the Texas Association of Realtors.

Romeo holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration from the University of Southern California and a Masters of Business Administration degree from Regis University.

When not working or volunteering, Romeo admits he’s a motorsports enthusiast and actively participates in organized track events in the Central Texas area.


Romeo has been more than a Realtor; we have developed a friendship with Romeo and his family. For several years we have remained in contact throughout this process and even when we changed our minds several times, Romeo remained patient. He helped us buy our first home in 2008, he's helped us sell a home and had an intricate role in finding our new home at Bella Montana.

I can't say enough about how much he has gone above and beyond the service of a "Realtor".

Romeo was great. He was very professional, very helpful, and did a great job selling our home! I’d recommend him to anyone!

Richard Glass

I'd like to start by saying that it was a great pleasure having Romeo as our realtor during this home purchase. We would gladly refer him to anyone we know who may be looking to buy a home.

Romeo's services to help us find our new home greatly exceeded all of our expectations. We've been through the home purchase process twice before in previous years and this time was by far the BEST experience of them all. He made us feel like we were more than just clients. His effortless dedication, from start to finish, in finding our home went beyond anything we could have imagined.

We thank you for having people like Romeo on your team, who care and are committed to helping families like ours, make their dream of home ownership a reality.

We had the very good fortune to work with Romeo Manzanilla both in purchasing (2008) and selling (late 2011/early 2012) our home in Texas. In both cases, and throughout our time in Texas, Romeo not only met, but exceeded all of our expectations - even those we didn't know we had. In both cases, we were conducting the bulk of the real estate transaction from out-of-state, and Romeo went out of his way to ensure that we were well-informed every step of the way, without requiring any difficult effort on our parts.

With our 2008 home purchase, we had very very limited time to househunt in person. Romeo went out of his way to help us narrow down our needs and preferences, ensured that we had a fantastic, but manageable, list of options to visit in person, and helped us pick a home that we absolutely loved. During the three years we lived in the home, Romeo kept in touch with us, welcomed us to the area, provided recommendations for home services when needed, and definitely made our transition to Texas much MUCH easier. As a military family, we knew we'd be leaving the area in a relatively short time period, and Romeo helped us prepare for selling our home in 2011. He went out of his way to regularly check on the house, which we had to leave vacant even before we were ready to put it on the market, and gave us helpful, intelligent advice but made sure we were in control of (and very comfortable with) all major decisions as we navigated the still-challenging real estate market. We were very very happy with the offer we received, and Romeo could not possibly have made the sale of the home go more smoothly for us!

It was a pleasure to work with and get to know Romeo over the past few years, and we would strongly recommend him to anyone looking for a real estate agent in the Austin area!!

Romeo was awesome to work with.  He took care of us and got us extra things that were in the listing but the builder was not going to include.  If I was going to buy another house, I would definitely use Romeo again.  He also stayed at closing and made sure I had the keys in my hand and this was very beneficial.  It turns out there was one paper missing in the documents to sign and he helped resolve the situation.  Thanks a bunch Romeo.

Romeo provided my husband and I with A+ service!!! He was available for us 24/7 and answered all our questions day or night. He would point out things we would had missed and gave us pointers on so many things! He has made our move to Austin a wonderful experience and we would recommend him to anyone who is out shopping for a new home! Thanks Romeo!!!

I found Romeo on internet through many good reviews. Romeo has good knowledge and is very patient. He is also very friendly that is easy to work with. I worked with him only 2 months and we are in the new house now. Thanks Romeo. I would highly recommend him to anyone who is looking for buying a new home.

by Rosadao at Citysearch

I want to take the time to give Romeo the highest praise for the way he handled my listing and sale. He did a wonderful job, very professional and courteous. The escrow went quickly and without a hitch. I would highly recommend Romeo to anybody.

Sharon Thornton

He treated us like family and was very supportive and knowledgeable. HIS EXPERIENCE REALLY GUIDED US IN THE DIRECTION OF OUR NEW HOME

Tiffany Wilkes

Romeo was very engaging and committed from our first contact. He listened carefully to our needs and helped us through the process of finding the right home. He remained in contact up to and through closing to ensure that any questions were addressed. He helped make a long distance purchase decision relatively easy and stress-free.

Chuck Goerg

Romeo went out of his way to help us find the type of construction that we wanted. Met us late at night one time at a property that had a floor plan we were dying to see. He was also very knowledgeable during the closing process which I appreciated. His recommendation for a painter worked out very well, too.

He was very responsive when we did call or have questions. He is knows his stuff and is using the latest in technology to stay on top of his business, so I think he's an excellent realtor.

Amy Byrd

Romeo helped us find the right house within our budget. He was very nice, not pushy, and helped us get financing as well. We met several times and he was very patient with us and explained everything in detail. We will recommend him 100% :)

Gina Sena

Romeo is awesome! He is helpful without being pushy. He listened to my goals/needs and found options that fit. I will strongly recommend him to others.

Daphne Coplin

Romeo did a outstanding job showing us homes and being patient and understanding.He was willing to do anything for us even though he knew we were not ready at this time. He will be the first person I willcall when ready to buy.

Won't Find A Better Realtor In The City of Austin ;) Doug and I wanted to move from Phoenix, AZ to Austin and met with Romeo in Austin. He took us to all the places he thought fit our desires. He didn't pressure us nor did he try to convince us into buying a home that didn't fit into our budget or our desires. Romeo took us to the wonderful Oasis restaurant on Lake Travis for lunch so we could really enjoy the beauty that Austin has to offer. I can't say enough how caring, professional, thoughtful and considerate he is. If you are thinking about moving to or away from Austin and need to purchase or sell your home, DO NOT HIRE ANY OTHER REALTOR. Romeo will see you through from beginning to end. Thanks so much Romeo for everything!

Barbara and Doug from Phoenix

A different kind of Realtor ;) My husband and I had started looking for a new home when I was pregnant with my second child and spoke to many realtors about selling our home and buying a new one. Most seemed knowledgeable enough, but I kept getting the feeling like I was talking to a used car salesman. When a friend of mine recommended Romeo, I decided to give him a call. I got a completely different feeling from Romeo. I felt that he really listened and understood exactly what we were looking for and that he was genuinely concerned with helping us find the right home for us. 3 months later, we were living in our new home and Romeo was able to sell our existing home for more than we expected. I would definitely recommend Romeo to anyone who looking to buy or sell a home.

Things could not have gone smoother.! I was moving my medical practice from California to Texas and I wanted to purchase a home for myself and my family prior to making the move. Based on the recommendation from an associate that lived in the Austin area, I contacted Romeo to assist me in finding the best home suited for our needs. I flew out to meet Romeo about 2 months prior to the move and found him to be very professional, courteous and organized. Based on a brief description of what we were looking for, Romeo had researched several homes and I was able to narrow down my search and eventually purchased the perfect home for us. Romeo even assisted us with the move. My family and I truly thank you for all of your assistance.

Dr. Petrowski

Doesn't overlook the small things.! I work as a staging consultant with many realtors, but when it came to selling my own home, I didn't want to work with anyone else but Romeo. His attention to detail and thoroughness in marketing really does put him head and shoulders above most other Realtors. He really does care about getting his clients the most for their money and needless to say, I was more than happy with the sales price of my home and absolutely love my new home. I can't say enough about Romeo's professionalism and caring attitude. I would highly recommend him to anyone who is looking to buy or sell a home.

Debbie R.

Romeo has been informative without being pushy. He showed us a variety of homes and price ranges to suit our needs. Romeo listened to what we were interested in and made sure to show us homes that satisfied those interests. We weren't expecting to find a house in one day!

Brian & Teresa

My fiancé and I just started our search for our new home. So far we have been very impressed with Romeo. From the moment we first inquired, Romeo has been following up with us diligently. We are excited to see where this process takes us---hopefully to a new home!

Joe & Aida

Romeo showed us several homes at only a moment's notice, and was always willing to help. We are so appreciative!

Elizabeth Magdaleno

Romeo Manzanilla delivered. He was available, attentive, hard working and knowledgeable. He listened to our goals and helped us achieve them. After our quick sale, we asked him to represent us in our house-hunting endeavor. Thus far, we are very pleased and we would not hesitate to recommend him to family and friends.”

Joshua & Deborah Siegel

Romeo Manzanilla, Realty Austin, recently assisted us in finding a house in Sun City Texas. He was extremely courteous and helpful and he went above the normal service we have experienced previously in other relocations.
