Ross Ponder epitomizes integrity, creative energy, and diligence in your real estate transaction. He has lived and worked in every corner of greater Austin for 10+ years as a tenant, owner, and landlord.

He engages each client in a conversation as they buy, sell or lease a piece of Austin. He doesn’t focus on just closing a transaction, but rather on creating and executing a real estate strategy that will help his clients build and maintain long-term financial health and wealth.

For buyers or renters: he will work with you to develop a budget and detailed wish list, and will then present options tailored to your unique needs.

For sellers or landlords: he will analyze the market in your neighborhood and work with you to determine a marketing plan to get your home sold or leased quickly and at top dollar.

For investors: he will work with you to determine your wealth building strategy (e.g., cash on cash, internal rates of return, cap rates), identify real property to include in your portfolio, and then negotiate to get you the best deal.

Always calm in a crisis, Ross can get the deal done and move things along effectively. His background as a hospital chaplain allows him to stay calm and focused; his experience as a doctoral candidate and researcher keep him focused on the facts, ensuring his clients make data-driven decisions.

You can hear his booming laugh inside restaurants, coffee shops, and along the hiking trails. His good-natured demeanor helps make the buying and selling process enjoyable. Ross also spends his free time volunteering with St. David’s Episcopal Church and the Episcopal Diocese of Texas. He currently lives in South Austin (Sunset Valley) with his wife Sarah, daughter Lucy, and German Shepherds Bear and Molly.

Ross was a pleasure to work with. I enjoyed his ability to be patient as we looked at several homes. He is also a very good listener and did a great job of asking questions throughout the process. In addition, he has a stable of trustworthy, quality professionals (mortgage, flooring installers, painters, and more) who I was able to utilize. I would highly recommend Ross to anyone looking to purchase work with Ross.

As first-time homebuyers we needed an agent who could guide through each step of the process - from prioritizing our needs to closing. Ross’ consultative approach and excellent communication skills kept our spirits and confidence high along the way. We benefited from his local industry expertise in the form of recommendations for the various services we needed, though he never pressured us to use them.

Ross is highly organized. This was important to us as we were working on a short timeline and could not afford to miss a step. He kept us informed of where we stood in each stage of the process and how to be prepared for the next. Even weeks after closing, he made sure we filled out our homestead exemption paperwork on time.

By keeping our interests as his top priority, Ross has earned our trust and our highest recommendation.
