Sydney Schuster

REALTOR®

Sydney works on the Ciccarelli Team with Donna Ciccarelli and Richard Fowler.

Sydney Schuster is a native Texan. After getting married in 2016, she and her husband decided to make Austin their forever home. Sydney prides herself on her integrity, resourcefulness, fun-loving nature, and more than anything, her dedication to her family, friends, and clients.

While obtaining a degree in Accounting from Texas State University, she recognized that she has always had a passion for Real Estate. When the opportunity presented itself to work for a brokerage starting from the ground up, she couldn’t pass it up. Sydney was proud to be the very first agent hired in this "start-up" brokerage after the two founders, and went on to build a successful career there before transferring her business over to Realty Austin. Sydney utilizes her Accounting background to help identify and convey a property’s financial potential to buyers. This background also gives her the ability to problem solve with great attention to detail. With an additional five years in the country club industry, she thrives in providing excellent customer service to her clients.

She understands that a client's experience is more than a sale, it is a decision that affects a family deeply. Whether it is a first home, upsizing to accommodate a growing family, or an investment purchase to supplement retirement, Sydney recognizes that each client and each transaction is unique and she works diligently to deliver first-rate, individualized service to each one through attention to detail, creative problem solving, and skilled negotiation.

Her love of living in Austin spreads to trying new restaurants, happy hours, hiking, and exploring this beautiful city. You can catch her relaxing at Zilker Park and Auditorium Shores with her two dogs or playing golf around the city. She has also spent countless hours serving those in need as a volunteer for the Hays County Food Bank.

With a competitive and sharp, yet empathetic and compassionate mindset, she makes sure she puts her clients' needs first. Sydney understands the joy of finding the perfect home or selling for maximum return, and she strives to make the buying and selling process an enjoyable experience from start to finish.

The definition of a Realtor should just be defined with the words, "Sydney Schuster." In the very long 17 months, I searched for a house with Sydney she didn't waver in her commitment to me. She is way beyond her years, and I'm confident I will see her name in lights someday. Do not hesitate, a matter of fact run to find her. She will be in such demand soon that you will wish she knew your name. I'm an attorney that has had multiple real estate purchases in my life. I'm particular, detailed, a perfectionist, and was looking for the right house for our family moving to Austin from out-of-state. I needed someone to help not just match my extensive criteria, but I needed someone that led with their heart too and was committed to finding the right match for my family. Sydney didn't disappoint at all. I'm emotional just thinking of how much she gave my family during a very difficult purchase to find the right home after seeing at least a 100 houses. She is professional, compassionate, exceptional with stats and numbers, savvy, assertive when needed, detailed, and just overall badass. No one compares to her. And, I mean no one. Here's to you Sydney in your very bright and big future in the Austin real estate market! Keep kicking a**! Thank you for all you have done for me.

A relative recommended Richard Fowler after I decided to relocate to the Round Rock area. I could not be happier with my entire experience with Richard. He is very knowledgeable, professional, kind, and willing to go the extra mile to help out. He made the whole process so much easier than I had expected, and was there every step of the way to purchase my new home. I am relocating from another city, and Richard also worked very hard to find the right Realtor in my area to sell my current home. I could not be more pleased with the job Richard has done and would highly recommend him to anyone purchasing and selling a home. He has made this whole process so much less stressful that I could possibly hope for. Thank you so much, Richard!

When I left Austin ten years ago, I decided to rent out my condo. This year property management became an issue, so I decided to sell and needed an agent. I got a few names from a real estate agent friend where I live now. Donna Ciccarelli had helped my friend’s nephew when his family moved to Austin, and they recommended her highly.

I knew I would work with Donna the first time I talked to her. She got to work immediately and told me how things would work. This was my first property sale, so I didn’t know very much. She was great to work with and was able to answer all my questions off the top of her head. It’s clear she’s done this for a while. One thing that impressed me from the beginning was that Donna wanted to be thorough and fair; to understand the state of the property and what disclosures had to be made. Donna’s valuation estimate was based on solid analysis. When the buyer’s agent attempted to lowball, Donna’s detailed work stood up. The final price was very close to her estimate. She also accurately estimated closing costs and gave me a complete breakdown.

Donna made the initial calls to the tenants who are renting the condo. She called me back with a very pleasant message; the tenants wanted to buy. So the process was easier than it might’ve been. Even so, Donna did a great job of keeping me informed and keeping the buyers informed. It seemed like they turned to her for a lot of advice. Of course, problems came up. Donna found a solution to each quickly and efficiently, explaining the issue, alternative solutions, and implications of each choice. There was no attitude: accept the problem, decide on alternative, present to buyers ASAP.

While my sale was pending, Donna and her team did whatever was needed, whenever it was needed. Whatever medium was appropriate. Email, phone, text, DocuSign. Several or all when she needed to get my attention. She gracefully accommodated my unavailability the week before closing (unavoidable but I won’t do it again!). She had tradesmen in her network that were able to advise or fix as needed at the few repairs that came up and do it quickly. My real estate agent friend kept an eye on what was going on and even came to closing with me. She’s not an easy person to please, but she was impressed with Donna. I believe her agency will recommend Donna when their customers need a representative in Austin. If I ever have a real estate transaction in Austin, I know I’ll call Donna.

Richard Fowler was our Realty Austin agent, and he was with us every step of the way. Richard helped us buy and sell and through the triumphs we overcame both. Richard is very thorough, informed and involved in the process. My husband and I would definitely recommend him to anyone who's in the process of buying and selling a home, especially if you desire a personalized and committed agent who represents your best interest every step along the way. Many thanks to Richard and his team for all they did to help us obtain our forever home!

Richard Fowler was a great Realtor. He priced my house higher than I thought it would be worth and it sold quickly. I highly recommend him as a Realtor, and I highly recommend working with Realty Austin.

It has only been a few months since the last closing on our house purchase with Sydney, so it would be a bit repetitive to list all the same accolades again, but let me say that there was no sophomore slump. Sydney is 2 for 2 with us, and now that we will be Austinites again, she will be the Realtor that we recommend to anyone who asks. Not only do I plan on staying in touch with Sydney, but my architect friends (and my family members alike) who met Sydney during our two transactions, now consider Sydney a friend and "go-to Realtor source," such is her open and engaging personality. Jennifer, it is abundantly clear, and I must emphasize that I have worked with Realtors in so many capacities through my own practice for 40 years, Sydney Shuster is going to be an absolute standout performer among your group.

Donna is Fabulous. She went over and beyond our expectations. Donna is extremely knowledgeable and just a super fantastic nice person. Angela and I both feel extremely lucky to have found her and are extremely thankful for all she did for us in bringing the purchase of our first home to a close.

I had run across Sydney Schuster one time before on a single listed piece of property, and I was so impressed way back then that I jotted her name down saying, "now here is someone I might use in the future." When it came time for my wife and me to finally return to Austin and build/buy our own home, I went back to that note and tracked Sydney down. She was no longer with her previous firm, but I found her with Realty Austin, and we took off from there. I am an architect and have met so many agents over my career. Sydney Schuster stands out. Sydney forms a comfortable and personal communication bond immediately. But then Sydney goes on to continually amaze me: her high energy, her tremendous organization skills, her professionalism and her attention to every detail. Her knowledge about the industry is solid, she knows the process, and has the savvy negotiating skills to make a contract work in a competitive market. We could not be more pleased. In the Austin real estate world, I think Sydney Schuster will be a Rock Star.

Donna changed my life. I didn’t know anything about the selling process, and the paperwork seemed overwhelming, but Donna was with me every step of the way. I needed a lot of help and was on a time crunch. She took over and made everything happen. The day she held my open house, we received several bids. Not only did I get my asking price, but I also got much more. Donna helped me get through one of my lowest points and turned it into a positive, empowering experience. For that, I am forever grateful. She genuinely cares and wants the best for everyone. She is hands-on and helps with everything from start to finish.

Donna was a pleasure to work with, and she really considered my families needs. She was professional and took what was a stressful situation and made it seem effortless. Donna was a hard worker and really knows her stuff. My kids grew very fond of Donna, and she even became a part of the family. Buying our home became a family affair. Donna will be the person we will go to our next house.
