When I decided in late May to put my Austin-area house on the market, I wanted a top-notch agent who would know the market intimately and work 24/7 on my behalf. So I asked a friend if she knew anyone like that. Sherry Ellenbogen was the name she gave me. Her recommendation came with words like "fabulous," and "you'll love her." She was right. With Sherry, I had someone who knew more about the area I was living in than I did. She perfected meshed the market dynamics with my very specific requests. I ended up with a great offer and a great experience. I leave Austin with so many fond memories, but near the top of that list is Sherry. As an agent, she could not have served me better. But it is her friendship that I will take with me.

So many things come to mind when thinking about our journey with Sherry Ellenbogen. My husband and I were relocating from Houston and met Sherry at an open house in Lakeway. We must have seen 15 houses on our day trip, and we were exhausted. As we were headed back to Houston late that day, she was the only Realtor out of the 15 we met that followed up with us. She is such a shining star, and we totally believe if it weren’t for meeting Sherry, we wouldn’t be living in our dream house that we just closed on yesterday. She made the process seamless and extremely enjoyable. She was so knowledgeable and went above and beyond for us. Sherry isn’t just a Realtor, and she is now a forever friend! Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!

Sherry Ellenbogen is simply the best! She has been our agent for at least ten years! During that time we have bought and sold multiple properties. Sherry gets all the details right, while still being a joy to work with! I would heartily recommend Sherry to anyone seeking an agent.

I cannot say enough good things about Sherry Ellenbogen and her approach to real estate. Sherry is simply amazing, and I would never use anyone else as my Realtor. I highly recommend Sherry and Realty Austin.

Sherry was very knowledgeable about the market and our area and guided us the best way to prepare our house to sell. She and her stager did a great job transforming our house to look amazing for pictures, marketing, and showings. Sherry was very accommodating to our needs for conducting showings with our work and pet limitations. She was able to offer her opinions backed up by market data to guide us throughout the transaction of selling our house. Sherry made herself available and communicating with her was very easy. We appreciate Sherry not only selling our home but helping us to find a rental property in a timely fashion. We had a GREAT experience with Sherry and would HIGHLY recommend her to anyone needing to buy or sell their home in Austin!

Sherry came highly recommended to us as the go-to person to sell your waterfront property. I can confirm that recommendations were 100 % correct. Sherry works around the clock as she took calls and answered emails from early morning to late evenings. (She got the ball rolling when she was in Florida at her daughter’s wedding.) She is personable and listens to what you are trying to accomplish; whether it be a price you are trying to achieve or a timeframe in which you want to dispose of your property. She formulates a plan to help you make your goals and then implements that plan. Sherry is very practical and honest with you as a property owner as to price and timing to dispose of your property.

Sherry came out to meet my wife and I and view the property on or around the 1st of the month. She and her team helped us get the home ready for showing and pictures were taken for the MLS listing. The house went on MLS listing, and we had an offer the next day! Sherry’s team helped guide us through the listing and contract negotiations, inspections, appraisal, and surveying processes and made sure we were informed as to any potential issues and the progress of each stage of selling the property. We closed and funded next month. Bottom line is Sherry listed, closed, and funded on our property in one month. Besides being very competent, Sherry is a pleasure to work with, and I would highly recommend Sherry to anyone looking to sell or buy property in or around the Austin area.

Sherry Ellenbogen did a fantastic job selling our condo! We really can’t say enough great things about her. She was responsive, paid attention to detail, helped us prepare the condo so that it showed well, and seemed to genuinely care about the things we cared about. We would recommend Sherry any time to anyone!

Sherry is consummate professional! We were new to this market, and she educated us about Lakeway. We were very specific with our wish list, and she was respectful of our focus. In many instances, we were demanding and she never flinched. Sherry negotiated our deals with determination. I would highly recommend her services to any potential clients, and if we ever sell, we will list with her. Above all else, we feel she is a friend!

I would recommend Sherry to everyone - she is professional, detail oriented and willing to go the extra mile on everything to make sure we were satisfied with every aspect of the sales process. Sherry is wonderful.

Sherry is absolutely amazing. I am so thankful that she is my Realtor. I have purchased and sold a house with Sherry and she has made both experiences wonderful. During this past sale, the buyers were somewhat unreasonable and we had a couple of strange circumstances. She handled everything with high standards and a level of professionalism that cannot be matched. I will, and have, recommended Sherry and if I ever return to the Lake Travis or Austin area, I will contract with Sherry again. Sherry is not only my Realtor, she became a friend during the process.

This is my first Yelp review but after our experience with Sherry Ellenbogen I felt I needed to add our review. Sherry is our go to Real Estate agent as her knowledge and expertise is beyond anything we could have expected. Sherry held our hand through the whole process and helped us find contractors to help us with some of our fix it upper plans. Call Sherry ASAP if you are looking to buy or sell in Austin- you will be so happy you did!

We were referred to Sherry Ellenbogen at Realty Austin and she exceeded all of our expectations for competent and quality Real Estate services. She was extremely welcoming to out of state folks searching for a retirement home. Her real estate experience is a tremendous asset to learn about different areas, target specific neighborhoods and marry requirements to available properties. She leveraged her informal network to find us a home that was pre-MLS and checked off all of our boxes! That happens with a professional who understands their client's needs and can be creative in the overall process. Sherry was a pleasure to work with and we look forward to working with her again in the future.

Thank you to Sherry for selling our house and finding us our dream place!!! She is the best Realtor in the business, and we would never consider anyone but her. Thanks for working with us through a few moves since 1999.


January 1 2016

We have used Sherry Ellenbogen to help us a few times now and must say after each experience we have found that we should be telling everyone we know about Sherry! Sherry is very knowledgable and helped us through each step of the buying/selling process and even went above and beyond to help us find a few contractors for our fixer upper project. If we find ourself with another need to buy or sell we already know who we should call. Thank you Sherry!

Sherry Ellenbogen is the best! This is the fourth house purchase we have made with Sherry since 1999, we obviously love her and believe she is the best. She also has a house listed for us now. She is there anytime we need her day or night, and she helped from finding the home all the way to close and move-in.

I would never consider using anyone but Sherry.

Sherry was very professional and easy to work with and I would certainly recommend her to all who want to sell or buy a home.

She made sure everything was done correctly and that nothing was left to question.

I was certainly glad I picked Sherry for the sale of my mothers home.

I met Sherry through a mutual friend and she ended up being the buyer's agent for a home I sold last year in the Homestead. I found that she was very experienced during that sale.

I am an investor and recently Googled homes for sale in Apache Shores. I ended up hitting on Sherry's website. I got notice from Sherry's automated search of a price reduction for 2 lots and a house. We quickly saw the house and made a rather low but not offensive offer under the circumstances. The seller countered and Sherry negotiated a good deal for the asking price, terms and repairs. I believe that part of that success was Sherry's reputation as a good realtor and her relationships with her peers, including that with the Seller's agent.

I felt like I was not just a quick sale to Sherry. I believe she has an understanding of my goals and had both my current and future needs in mind while evaluating this transaction. Sherry is like a walking Rolodex for good contacts and referrals. She has willingly shared many with me. During this transaction, Sherry took a trip to Japan. She made sure she had good coverage and her team, including Nicole, Phyllis and Linda were very helpful when needed in her absence. It was a stress free transaction for me and I am so excited about this new business acquisition.

And finally, I would be remiss if I did not say something about Sherry's compassionate side. During this purchase, I had an emotional upheaval in my personal life. Sherry sensed my emotions, and rather than just plowing through the business end of things, she took some time to listen and allow me time to regroup before making important decisions. I have always heard that being a realtor requires being part psychologist. I sensed Sherry's concern was genuine and I felt comforted by her concern and not pressured by the details of the deal.

Sherry knows that I have an allegiance with another realtor in the area with whom I have done several deals. At the end of the day however, my business interests remain my priority. I have told Sherry and the other realtor that I will honor the opportunity with whomever brings me the deal first.

So, all in all, I think Sherry is a wonderful person and a wonderful, experienced realtor who operates with integrity and an interest in long term business and personal relationships. I would recommend her to anyone in need of a good, experienced realtor.

Realty Austin Rocks! Thanks Sherry Ellenbogen for working hard for us to make our dreams come true. Not only did you keep your eye open and find our dream home, you sorted out all the little problems along the way - keeping our stress low, and you tenaciously worked the deal to completion (including selling our old home). Congrats to Realty Austin and Sherry for a job well done.

Sherry Ellenbogen has a reputation as one of the best realtors in Austin. Actually I found her to be THE BEST. I have owned houses in numerous regions of the country and she is the best agent I have worked with. She is professional, knows the area, and works very hard, but her most outstanding attribute is that she really cares and wants you to find what will make you happy and not settle for something less.

Sherry is a wonderful Realtor and an even more wonderful person.  She was a pleasure to work with and far exceeded all of our expectations.  Sherry treated us like friends from the beginning and we are very thankful for all of her assistance and will definitely recommend her to our friends and family.  Sherry was kind and patient, yet determined to find us a home.  It was a long process, but well worth the investment.

Ann and I want to thank Sherry for the wine, chocolate and Outback gift cards. We appreciate her thoughtfulness. We also thank Sherry for her help in selling our house in Liberty Hill. Whenever we would get discouraged over a false start, her positive attitude would get us past it. We consider her a true professional and a cut above the several buyer’s agents we spoke with during the time our house was on the market. We would not hesitate to recommend Sherry and Realty Austin to anyone needing sale or purchase assistance in the Austin area. Thanks again for all Sherry did to bring the sale of our property to a successful conclusion.

Sherry has been amazing and extremely thorough - we loved her and the service she provided - would be happy to recommend her to anyone needing a realtor.


We have known Sherry Ellenbogen for 15 years. The relationship started when she helped us buy the house in 1998 that she just sold for us on Eck Lane. So we had not experienced her work on the “sell” side of a house. We remained friends for 14 years in between.  

Sherry, in our opinion, is the consummate professional and one of the best realtors in Lakeway, if not Austin. She told us what to expect throughout the process, guided us through it, and incorporated the best professionals from staging, to photography, to the title company. Every one of these individuals also told us how much they respect Sherry. Her reputation in the business is impeccable.

She was able to sell a home for us in a matter of weeks, when the average days on market of our price point is measured in many months. And she had to “save” the sale twice from the dead, as the buyer’s agent was pretty passive in the transaction. She is also currently representing us on the buy side of a home, with yet another difficult party (the seller is his own broker) yet she got it resolved on the issues and we signed a contract on the house in Lakeway!

When Sherry comes to meetings or to showings, she is always immaculately dressed, polished, and poised. She makes you proud to have her as your agent, and as a friend. If Julie and I ever buy or sell another property, I can tell you, she will always be the one who does it for us, until she retires successfully from the business. Hopefully, for Realty Austin’s sake, that won’t be any time soon.

Bill & Julie Strong

Larry and I enjoyed working with Sherry and found that she was very knowledgeable of the market. We were more than satisfied with her work and would use her again if the need arose and recommend her to family and friends.

Larry and Nancy McVay

I’ve worked with Sherry on multiple occasions for both the purchase and sale of my home, as well as my friends’ homes. Sherry’s enthusiasm, professionalism, knowledge of the Austin real estate market and, most importantly, her ability to fully understand my needs as a buyer/seller makes Sherry an absolute pleasure to work with for all of my real estate endeavors. I highly recommend Sherry and her dedicated team of professionals!

Michael P. Schmit

I want to share with you a very exceptional experience with you about one of your Realtors, Sherry Ellenbogen. The story actually begins over three years ago when it was necessary for me to move out of my home and into an apartment. My daughter suggested that I call Sherry. She didn’t work for you at that time and was not in the apartment hunting business but as a favor to my daughter, she took her time to help me. A week later she found a good apartment for me. The place was furnished, which I didn’t want. The owners didn’t want to store the furniture so Sherry managed to get a lower rent for me since I was being inconvenienced by having to use their furniture. That was the beginning of my journey with Sherry.

Fast forward to 2011. My next door neighbor wanted to buy my house on Hazeltine in Lakeway. I immediately thought of Sherry and called her to see if she could just do the paperwork for me. The new owners were happy with the price, the process and also with working with Sherry. Sherry managed to keep everyone happy through out the entire process. With kindness and professionalism, she managed this to its happy ending. I can’t say enough good things about Sherry. You are fortunate to have her working with you.

I am now remarried and still living in Lakeway. If I should ever need a Realtor or need to recommend one, you know whose name I will use.

Sue Heilig Cornett

I can't say enough good about Sherry Ellenbogen.She was there for me all the way through the process and made me feel like family. All the praise in the world for her
