My sister and I both had a great experience with Ted and will definitely be recommending him to our friends and family. We chose Ted to be our real estate agent because he wasn't aggressive and harassive like the other agents who were trying to solicit our business. Once we started looking at homes, Ted did a great job of finding properties based on our feedback. He was very intuitive when selecting houses to show us. He also did a great job of answering questions and providing information throughout (and even after) the buying process. I would absolutely use him again should I ever need an agent again.

We thought Ted was very professional, easy to work with, and kept reminding us to make progress toward our goal. He was willing to go out of his way to help the sale. Ted is very knowledgeable about the area and market. We would definitely recommend him.

We were extremely happy with Ted. We had been to several open houses before meeting him and each time felt that the realtors were too pushy. Ted never put pressure on us to sign with him at the early stages and as a result of that and of how personable and easy going he is we just felt comfortable working with him and a result felt naturally happy to commit to working with him. Even when we were putting in our offer and at the closing phase, Ted never put any pressure on us and he was always so relaxed he helped us relax a too. He was exactly the type of person we needed in those stressful situations.

My husband and I really enjoyed working with Ted to find our first home! He was responsive, professional, and knew exactly what questions to ask to try to help us in our search. Ted has a friendly demeanor that makes him easy and fun to work with, especially for nervous first-time home buyers. He helped represent us in important meetings and emails and was available to take our calls and emails at all times.

Ted Esquibel was fantastic to work with. I strongly recommend him. We are moving into our new home next week!

Ted Esquibel just helped me close on my first house and he was very helpful through the entire process. He's much more easy going than some of the other realtors I talked to and he wasn't pushy at all. Anytime I had a question or wanted to see a house, he was right there to help. Others I spoke to just wanted to jam me in the first house they could find regardless of whether or not it was what I was looking for. I also really liked the Realty Austin website when I was searching for the right house.

Ted was very helpful and oh so patient with me. We literally looked at almost 40 homes. As I become discouraged, Ted remained upbeat and positive. He promised to find me a home I would be happy with. He was a tough negotiator when I needed him to be.

When all was said and done and I approached my closing, his last question to me was "are you happy?" That meant so much to me after the stress and emotional roller coaster I had been on looking for my first home. I will use Ted for my next home purchase and I have already recommended him to others.

Ted was great! Incredibly responsive and helpful without ever being pushy - he always had our goals and best interests in mind. He went the extra mile several times to make sure the deal happened and that we were happy. I can't imagine a better experience and I'd be happy to work with him again or recommend him without reservation to anyone looking for a home.

Working with Ted Esquibel was exactly the experience I was looking for, and he gave me the best opportunity to be successful in purchasing a home. He understood my goals, what I wanted in a home purchase, gave me the best information, and kept me on that course. He knew the market, property value, and latest programs to help me achieve my goals. He turned every stone to make sure I knew every issue with the house, and exactly what I was buying. That was huge for me, and not all realtors are willing to do that. It’s easy to believe that all Realtors know what they are doing and that they have your best interests in mind, but it's not the case. I had one shot to get it right, and thankful that I had the counsel of Ted. I would recommend Ted Esquibel to anyone looking to purchase a home.

I've known Ted for over a year. He helped me purchased a home in 2015 in Hutto. We stayed in touch after I bought throughout the year. When I decided to move closer to my family in the Houston area. I called Ted to see if he would list my home in Hutto. He helped me with the selling of my home but he also helped the purchasing my home in Magnolia as well. Things got frustrating and stressful from selling and buying a home at the same time but Ted was always there to answer questions. He kept up with both properties and kept me informed of all going on. I would highly recommend Ted. He's my guy for the job.

Working with Ted Esquibel was an exceptional experience! Our relocation from Hawaii to the Austin area was a bit more complex than most, and Ted guided us every step of the way! From the very first email to the closing table, he was always courteous, knowledgeable and made himself available for any and all concerns or questions. His background in finance allows him to give market analysis and insight that is so very beneficial to his clients. Having worked with other realtors in the past, we can say, without hesitation, that Ted is, by far, the most involved, dedicated real estate professional we have ever done business with, and we will wholeheartedly recommend him to anyone needing an agent in the Austin area.

I worked with Ted Esquibel with Realty Austin to purchase my first home, and it was a great experience. He was friendly, professional, and flexible - he did not hesitate to meet me late in the day or on weekends. He walked me through the entire process. He knew how to put together an offer with competitive aspects other than the offer price itself and it helped me win the house I wanted (I was not the highest bidder). I highly recommend him!

Our Realtor, Ted Esquibel, was a pleasure to work with and is excellent at his job. He goes above and beyond for his clients and works, it seems, all hours of the day. He was diligent in finding us our ideal property at a great price in a VERY competitive market. He guided us through every step of the process, which was such a relief for first time home buyers. We will continue to work with Ted in any future real estate ventures and he is highly recommended.

Ted was a pleasure to work with. He was very attentive to our needs and went out of his way to make sure they were met. He explained all our options clearly and professionally throughout the home buying process. We really appreciate the exceptional service he provided to us. We will definitely refer him to any of our family and friends that plan on purchasing or selling a home in the near future.

We relocated to Austin from Denver for our jobs. I inquired about a home on the website and Ted called us back within 5 minutes; we were very impressed with his initial responsiveness and this continued through our entire home buying experience. Ted understood our needs and wants. Best of all, when our ‘wants’ were not in line with our budget, he was very honest and straight forward with us about that as well, which we appreciated very much! He kept us on task and realistic. Since we were traveling from Denver to Austin to look for homes, he made himself available for marathon weekend house hunting trips; telling us that we are his priority and he would be available. He even went to a home and recorded a video tour, because we could not get down to see the house. Ted was great throughout the whole process, we closed on our house one week ago and could not be happier! We recommend Ted for any home buyer or seller with confidence and enthusiasm! You will not be disappointed.

Just closed on my home in Hyde Park, and my agent Ted Esquibel was as good as it gets. When I sell or buy again in the future, I know who I will be calling - thanks!

Ted Esquibel is a great realtor. He knows his markets and provided me great advice for a first time home buyer. Also he was very patient with all the questions I had about condos or in buying a house in general. He also hooked me up with a really good lender that's local and just as friendly and approachable as Ted. I hope to continue to work with him down the road!

Ted Esquibel helped me immensely, going above and beyond. His "no pressure" approach made my first home purchases a very enjoyable one. Not once was he too busy to answer a call, text or question that I had. Even in my days of second guessing myself , he helped out by even putting together a list of lease property's just in case I needed to go that route. Ted's knowledge of what to look for in a home, and the overall knowledge of the financials. Allowed me to make what i consider the perfect home for my son and myself. I will be referring anyone that asks to Ted in the future for sure.

Ted made selling our house so simple and to the point each step of the process. He executed our house buy with such agility and preciseness through the negotiations and was on the spot ready with all the right things at all the right times. He made sure we got what we wanted out of the whole experience. The result -- one of the fastest house buy and sell and worth talking about the relator who made it happen.

Karen Cannon

September 2015

When we first started searching for a place to call home, we were looking for a condo and Ted's name/company popped up so I was quickly contacted by him. Through a quick intro conversation, we learned that maybe a condo wasn't the best decision and that a house was more in line with our needs. Ted did a very good job at thinking outside of the box and knew what to introduce to me and my wife so he wasn't wasting his time and, more importantly, our time. The house we ended up buying was listed substantially outside of our budget but with Ted's quick thinking that the house may be over-valued and very good negotiating skills. we were able to purchase the house with no exception and the seller agreed to more credits than I ever imagined.

Patience is the word that would best describe Ted & I think that should be the top quality you should be looking for in your realtor. Ted showed us so many properties, I lost count after 10, but every time he had the same enthusiasm & interest in showing those properties. He never made us feel in a (hurry) or (c'mon guys buy something now) feeling. He always said, we'll keep looking, until we find the right now. So overall he is very knowledgeable, professional, on-time & deserves 5 STARS. We'll definitely go to him for any of our future real estate needs.

Ted is very friendly and easy to talk to. He knows Austin and the surrounding areas. He will go wherever the client will go and stick with you. He understands the market and how frustrating it could be finding the right home for the right price to fit your budget. He will give advise. He checks out the home to make sure no major problems (foundation, roof leaks and air conditioner).There were times I wanted to give up,he helped me get through it and eventually help finding me my forever home.

Going into our first home purchase ever, we were very nervous. We knew that we had a tight budget and a very particular taste. Finding a home was going to be a tough process in itself, and understanding the mortgage application process behind it was going to be even tougher. Ted was incredibly patient with us. We had a million questions and we regularly texted him and called him with any and every concern or question that we had. Regardless of the time of day or day of the week, he would respond with detailed answers . He quickly came to understand what we were looking for and helped us find the perfect first home. He helped us navigate the entire mortgage application process and when we hit a couple of speed bumps with the lender, he kept us calm and immediately jumped into action with multiple backup plans. In the end, we got the home (below asking price!). After move-in, we had some small maintenance issues that required information from the seller. Our first thought was to email Ted. We were not expecting a reply, since we had closed on the house already. But like always, Ted immediately replied with helpful information about what could be done and even offered to help us. We were very pleasantly surprised by his eagerness to make sure that we were happy in our new home. We recommend Ted to anyone who is looking to buy a property, and we assure that he is an excellent resource.

Ted was extremely attentive and knowledgable about the process of buying a home. He showed me any property I wanted to see without injecting his opinion, only if I asked would he provide me with his insightful take. He made buying a home a smooth and mostly stress free process. What's stressful is certainly the market, and Ted was very flexible and able to see homes based on my availability, which is important because homes in Austin move very quickly. I never felt judged for the oddball properties I wanted to see, just because, and I think that's what made me really comfortable throughout the process. Ted was a fabulous realtor; I will certainly seek him out when I buy my next home.

Christina Dunigan

We were first time home buyers and Ted walked up through every step and had so many connections with people in town along the way from recommendations for inspection to people to help us with a loan. Was always available to talk to us about any questions we had.

Joseph Thies

September 2015

Ted was great in helping us purchase our home in Hyde Park. We found a great house that we had to jump on immediately, and I was super impressed with Ted's ability to meet with very little notice to make sure we got an awesome place. We had originally reached out to another realtor who supposedly 'specialized' in the Hyde Park area, and in the amount of time it took her to schedule an appointment to actually meet us, Ted had taken us to at least ten houses and was much more accommodating to our needs.

Tracy Owens

September 2015

We found Ted through Zillow, I can say we got lucky, as first time homebuyers we were a little unaware of the process. Ted helped us understand the process and was there to show us as many houses as we wanted to see. No matter at what time we e mailed with a question he had an answer for us right away. If your looking to purchase a home Ted is the man to go to. ;)

Judith Fernandez

September 2015

We interviewed multiple realtors including Ted and made a mistake to go with another sweet talking realtor but we were quick to get back to Ted. Everything went well because he LISTENED to what we wanted. He was very focused on our priorities, flexible, made sure we are taken care off. We would recommend him to anyone who want to make home buying less stressful.

Mehari Atsede

September 2015

Ted helped us buy our home in July 2015. The stress associated with home buying is a given, but he made the experience simple. He is everything I was looking in a realtor; no jargon, not a sales person (simply presented the facts),very accessible and most of all honest. What you see is what you get no gimmicks.

Sileshi Assemu

September 2015

Ted was great all around, we must have looked at least 30-40 different homes before we where able to find our perfect dream home just outside the Austin city limits, that ladies and gentleman takes patience and dedication on his behalf. Other realtors would have called it quits after the first 6 months. Before every showing Ted would send us the comps near and around the home and ensured that we were well educated before hand. He was also very honest and shared his personal opinions about prices which probably saved us from making a bad investment. I would totally recommend him to family and friends.

Ted Esquibel made buying our daughter's Austin condominium a simple and snag-free process. He was extremely professional and responsive to our needs. I live an hour away and he always made accommodations for my travel time. I appreciated his professionalism in a time when it is hard to find someone who knows what professionalism is. Thank you Ted for your hard work.

Don & Karen Holmes

Ted is an excellent Realtor! He helped me sell my house in a week at a great price. He had helpful suggestions for small improvements that made a big difference in my home, which I'm sure led to the quick sale. Ted also helped me find my new home, and when my financing needed some help, he hooked me up with a great Lender who made it happen. He was easy to work with, answered his phone or returned my call very quickly, and helped me any way he could. I highly recommend him!

Jennifer Silverman

September 2015

Ted was very helpful in the process of buying our home. He understood at the first sight our necessities and provided us with variety of homes to visit. During the buying process always was available and clearly explained us the procedure always defending our interest. His professionalism was key for the success of the operation.

Leandro Ray

September 2015

We talked with several realtors before we met Ted and I can't even begin to explain the difference. Although Ted is very highly in demand, he manages to focus completely on YOU and is always 100% attentive to finding the right property. Ted has an ear to the ground and was committed to helping us hunt for a deal and would often send us opportunities even before they even hit the market. One of the things that really sticks out about Ted is that he will tell it as it is. A few times he advised us to walk away from deals and I am so glad we took his advice! When we finally did find a fixer-upper that we could make our dream home, Ted went above and beyond to help us coordinate inspectors, plumbers, etc. and we are very happy with the deal we got. Ted has lived and worked in Austin for many years and is extremely knowledgable about the real estate market. Additionally, Ted is a great guy to talk with and we really enjoyed getting to know him. We plan to use him for all our real estate needs in the future and can't recommend him highly enough!

Marie Garrison

Being a first time homebuyer is more than overwhelming, especially in a market like Austin. Ted was super nice and informative in getting us through the process. Answered is phone from 7 am until midnight never leaving us hanging. He helped us win a bidding war, get all my request for fixes and touch ups done, and also has a great connection with Supreme Lending that got us approved day one and was able to meet the deadline of closing in 3 weeks. I have only heard horror stories of how it has gone for other people, I can honestly say while home buying can be nerve racking working with Ted was a breeze.

Justin Raiford

September 2015

Ted is a great realtor with plenty of knowledge. He helped my wife and I through the entire process. We were in the market for our first home, and had no idea what we were doing. Ted was a huge asset and helped us negotiate everything.

Blaine & Ginie Milner

September 2015

Ted worked hard for us and was a great consultative professional as we went through both the sale and purchase process with him. We are particular and demanding, and Ted was able to take feedback well, incorporate what was appropriate, and also provide his expertise to keep us on track with the process. Ted is a standup guy, is honest and transparent, and always there through the whole process to make it as smooth as possible.

John Floyd

September 2015

I was not an easy client. I was looking for specific locations and a fixer-upper that was actually worth fixing up. Ted understood my wants, narrowed down what he thought would be the closest to what I was wanting and would also be practical. We went through a few houses but in general we had not a whole lot of options because i was being picky about location. Ted helped steer me away from the houses that had no potential or would just be too much work and finally we found exactly what I was wanting. It's a fixer upper so finding the house wasn't the only hard part for Ted. The financing, inspection, and pretty much whole process is a bit tougher on these types of property unless you pay cash, which I was not. With Ted and a little luck everything worked out great. I have the house i wanted in an amazing location. I would say I got more than what i hoped for and way more than what I expected.

Jon Martin

August 2015

I highly recommend working with Ted in purchasing a home. He was very patient in finding us the perfect home. When we ran into some trouble before closing he was an expert negotiator in getting g us what we needed to close. We are very happy with the whole experience and will definitely recommend him to friends and family!

Gordon and Courtney Bagley

Ted was a great agent in all aspects .He was so helpful and he did all what he could to make our first Dream home become true. He took us to properties that met our expectations and he was a strong negotiator and he fiend us our dream house in less than a week . He always answer my call though I was calling him late very responsible and knowable. I don't thing I would of got my house if it wasn't for him.
