Even though the city of Austin has changed dramatically since Tiffany moved here in 2002, her passion for people, love of real estate and commitment to her clients has not.
A native Iowan, Tiffany began the move south when attending college at Mizzou. While there, she worked in media relations for the athletic department and earned a bachelor of journalism degree, graduating magna cum laude, from the prestigious Missouri School of Journalism in 2000. The move south continued two years later with an opportunity to work as a graduate student assistant in the men’s basketball office at The University of Texas.
Tiffany offers expert advice in selling, buying new or resale homes and real estate investing. Her commitment to exceptional customer service is evident in her client relationships. Tiffany takes the time to fully understand her clients’ wants, needs and expectations, so they are on the same page throughout the process. Tiffany loves getting to know her clients on a personal level, building a life-long relationship. She will work diligently to earn your trust and your referrals.
“As a former journalist, I loved telling people’s stories,” Tiffany said. “As a realtor, I treasure being a small part of that story, by helping people find the place they call home.”
Prior to beginning her real estate career, Tiffany spent 12 years in sales, marketing and education. She also has a master’s degree in secondary education from Texas State University. Tiffany was the journalism adviser at Stephen F. Austin and Cedar Park High Schools. She continues to work at UT every summer as the Men’s Basketball Camp Queen, planning, coordinating and managing operations for the program’s camps for boys. Tiffany also volunteers with The Shade Project. In her spare time, you can find Tiffany watching or attending any sporting event or country or Texas Country concert.
Tiffany treated us like family. I was diligent about paperwork, but her expertise, experience, and understanding of the real estate market helped me to keep the process in perspective. I will always use a realtor to purchase a home now. My home is my sanctuary and I'm ecstatic about my experience because of wonderful Tiffany. Thanks so much!
Tiffany Ontiveros has great knowledge of the Austin Real Estate Market. She has a great deal of energy and enthusiasm for helping clients find the right home. She has given us great advice in the past. She places the needs of her customers ahead of her own.
I have been very impressed with Tiffany Ontiveros. She is professional and so helpful as I try to prepare myself for the home-buying process. I had some issues with my credit, and Tiffany helped me clear them up, and helped me through the decision-making process all along the way.
Tiffany Ontiveros helped immensely in my process of locating and securing an apartment to rent. She was always available for questions and advice and I am happy with the decision she helped me make.
With this being my first time purchasing a home I was very unsure what to expect. I couldn't have asked for a better representative than Tiffany Ontiveros. She explained everything to me as well as made sure I understood and had a grasp of the buying process at all times. Tiffany made sure that I was never overwhelmed and made the process very transparent. She negotiated a deal for my family that I was more than pleased with as she continually exceeded my expectations. I feel very comfortable in her abilities and would definitely recommend Tiffany to anyone who is in the market to purchase a home or property that may need guidance as I did.
I recently moved to Austin from Connecticut and could not have been luckier to have Tiffany as a realtor. She is wonderful and made the process a great experience. She is quick to respond, friendly, honest and professional. She is also exceptionally knowledgeable of Austin and helped us find the perfect apartment within a short couple of days. I highly, highly recommend Tiffany to anyone in the Austin area and would absolutely work with her again. Thanks, Tiffany!
Tiffany Ontiveros is amazing. My daughter needed to downsize her house and Tiffany was quite the expert. She was patient and kind, and really listened to our needs. She was able to talk to my daughter about expectations, budget, and was extremely knowledgeable about the Austin market and the best way to navigate the many resources available to us. Tiffany was able to show us a house that was perfect for my daughter. It was smaller, more manageable mortgage payments, and really helped my daughter to not only see what was available, and what was possible. I could not recommend anyone higher, Tiffany was truly a pleasure to work with.
Tiffany Ontiveros was extremely knowledgeable and helpful. My husband and I laid out very specific requirements in our search for a new home; Tiffany jumped right on it! We were looking for a home in a family friendly area and Tiffany was able to narrow our search down and keep us in our price range. She answered all of our questions really quickly and was able to negotiate a price that we were comfortable with. I would highly recommend Tiffany Ontiveros.
I worked with Tiffany Ontiveros and have nothing but good things to say. We had some last minute changes the day we went to look at houses/apartments and she handled it impeccably. Tiffany is easy to work with and makes you feel very comfortable. I would recommend her to all my friends!
We worked with Tiffany Ontiveros and she is fantastic! So friendly and attentive, and she made the process quick and easy for us. We recommend her to all our friends and coworkers and look forward to working with her again in the future.
Excellent, friendly, very approachable and trustworthy realtor. Tiffany always responded to our emails and phone calls or texts. We really enjoyed her help.
Tiffany Ontiveros is amazing. She is easy to get in touch with, emails and phone calls returned very quickly. When working with her in person, she never looked at her phone; her total focus was on helping to find my new home. Tiffany treated me like I was buying a million dollar home, and I was her only client; I really appreciate the personalized service. Tiffany was able to find me my perfect home. I had some specific needs that were tough to find. Tiffany would send me options daily, and was of great reassurance the perfect home for me was out there. Tiffany kept my specific needs in mind when sending me listings, I did not waste time looking at options that were not good, solid options. After looking at several options, I found my dream home. Tiffany assisted me in navigating the bidding process, finding a mortgage company I can truly trust; she was with me for every step in the process. Tiffany is extraordinarily well rounded. She is mindful of what the house looks like, and the home it will become; memories that will be created there. I felt comfortable every step of the process. Tiffany is highly skilled in the art of all your realtor needs.
Tiffany Ontiveros was extremely personable and only showed me places that had everything I wanted. She didn't waste my time showing me things out of my price range, the area I was looking, or was missing one of the key features on my list. She followed up promptly and helped me find the perfect place for me. The day my house hit the market, she called me immediately knowing it was perfect. We went and looked at it that afternoon. She called the property manager, drove me straight to get the money order for the deposit and delivered it that day. It's tough when things go so fast in Austin right now, but she was all over it! Awesome job and I will be using her in the future when I am ready to purchase a home.
Recently my husband took a job in Austin and relocated our family. When I moved here I was given only a few weeks to find us rental housing. Tiffany Ontiveros was recommended to me by our good friends. She has been nothing short of amazing even with my special circumstances. Right before moving to Austin, I contracted to buy a puppy. Adding this to my cats made my pet count three. My friends told me I was crazy and would never find a good rental. Tiffany found several places that matched our special needs including a brand new home. While we are still waiting on approval, I have no doubt that we will be happy in our new home. Thank you, Tiffany.
Tiffany is fantastic! It doesn't always feel good when someone comes in to tell you how to stage your home - especially if you love it exactly the way it is - but they definitely know what they are doing! We had three offers the first day and sold above list - how can you argue with those results? We are also having Tiffany assist us in negotiations in building our new home. I'm sure we will be just as pleased with those results. Use Tiffany Ontiveros - you can trust that she knows what she is doing.
We want to thank Tiffany for her knowledge and patience in finding a house for us. She put in many hours in researching, showing, and then helping us with closing procedures. We had not purchased a home in 35 years so much of this process was "new again" to us. She answered all of our many, many questions with tireless effort. She was quick to find out any information that she might not have had available to her. She had several contacts who were able to be helpful. Tiffany has shown herself to be very knowledgeable in the real estate field and was willing to make calls, emails, etc. - whatever it took for us to be satisfied customers. We would recommend Tiffany to anyone and everyone wanting to buy or sell a home in the Austin area.
We were looking for a home to rent after we moved to Austin and Tiffany was exceptional in her service to us. She made sure we got exactly what we were looking for in the price range we needed. She is very professional and I would (and have) recommended her to my friends!
Tiffany was amazing. She helped with every little step in this process. My house was sold quickly and a new house was found quickly as well. I would highly recommend her to anyone buying or selling a home.
Tiffany was a godsend for us. We have an "aggressive breed" dog, (she will lick you to death) and Tiffany was able to help us find a rental home. She is attentive and aggressive in finding what you need. She is professional and is always ready to take on any challenge thrown at her. I have referred her to others already, and she has always come through for them with flying colors. If you don't use her, you have no idea what you missed with her. Thanks again Tiff; you are the greatest!!!!!!
Tiffany helped us move into our "empty nester" home. She was so professional, helpful and caring. It was the best experience I've had buying a home. She took the time to show us homes, all the while taking notes of our likes and dislikes until she found the perfect match for us. Thank you so much, Tiffany!
Tiffany has been a pleasure to work with. Ms. Ontiveros is very knowledgeable about the market in the Austin area. In working with her I truly believe she has what is in the best interest for her client. I'll recommend her to a friend of mine that will be moving her over the summer and I'm glad I have someone to send my friend.
