Wafiq was great and incredibly knowledgeable about the local Austin market. He seamlessly helped us navigate a very complicated and drawn-out closing process and was always available for questions and guidance. We can’t say enough great things about Wafiq and highly recommend his expertise.

Our experience with Wafiq Alalawi has been extremely satisfactory. He makes the process of buying a house something enjoyable rather than a difficult, incomprehensible, and opaque process. We are from Spain, and we knew nothing about the Real Estate market in Austin. He guided us throughout the entire purchase, giving us the best possible advice on where and how to make our offers, with excellent negotiation skills to get the best deal and being there to help us make the right decision. We definitely recommend Wafiq as your Realtor for your next house

Recently, I was told I would need to relocate to Austin for my job. Like any responsible human being, I began to search online for apartments and houses. I looked at a few websites, many of which required me to submit my information to view the real estate. This was where I first encountered Wafiq. He sent me a very personal email offering his help and expertise, which I initially disregarded since I knew my company would be setting me up with an agency. Fast forward a few months (and a few more check-in emails from Wafiq), and my company emailed over the company they selected to help with the relocation. I was assigned to someone standard and received his generic email with his picture. As I looked at the picture in the top right-hand corner, something looked familiar, but I couldn't put my finger on it. Eventually, I went back into my email and opened an email from Wafiq and realized what looked so familiar; they worked at the same company. I reached out to the agency asked if I could have Wafiq, as he was persistent, professional, honest, and I would feel more comfortable working with him. They obliged. This was the best decision I could have made.

I took two trips to Austin to look at places; first were mainly houses to buy, second were apartments to rent. Wafiq picked me up at the hotel right on time and where he had our schedule laid out, and we began our journey around the city and surrounding suburbs. He had a vast knowledge of each of his houses, some of which weren't his primary listings. As an outsider who had never been to Austin before, he also gave me the skinny on the city, traffic, best food spots - you name it. He was very upfront and honest, which I was absolutely not expecting when looking for a house. At no point did I feel pressured or told how many people want this house, it was good-hearted information and feedback. Unfortunately, I did not find anything that wowed me, so I left empty-handed.

The second trip was similar, Wafiq picking me up at my hotel to chauffeur me around the city to different apartment complexes. In between locations, we would chat, and he would educate me on Austin facts and hot spots, many of which I have visited since my 4 months here. When we would arrive to the complexes, he would take the initiative, ask the questions I wasn't aware of, and acted as if it were him that was looking to rent that spot, which I found very genuine. After a few duds, we came to our last spot of the day, which I ended up renting. All and all, I couldn't have found a better person to show me houses, apartments, and the city than Wafiq. He understood what I was looking for, did the research, then found great spots to show me in my price range.

If you are looking for a professional, well versed, honest, and laid back Realtor, there are none better than Wafiq. He still checks in on me from time to time, and if I ever do decide to buy in Austin, it will 100% be from Wafiq. PS - He will even go to a house and FaceTime you the lot if you are not able to get in the area, which goes above and beyond any standards that I expected.

Mr. Alalawi is very professional, attentive to detail, and very easy to work with. Working with him was great. I will definitely recommend Mr. Alalawi because he works VERY hard for his clients.

Again I would highly recommend Wafiq Alalawi to anyone. Thank you so much for the fantastic service we received from Wafiq.

The experience we had with Wafiq could not have been better. From the start of the process to finish the process, it went so smooth. My whole experience with Wafiq was great. I will continue to use Wafiq and his assistant Katie for everything related to real estate. I will be spreading Realty Austin’s name to my friends and clients. Thanks for everything.

We would highly recommend Wafiq. He is that agent that goes above and beyond to help find your dream home. He showed us around for a year and helped us every step of the way with our transition from moving from CA to Austin! He really puts the work in and truly cares. And it helps that he's cool to hang out with throughout the process too! We are looking forward to our next transaction with Wafiq. Wafiq rocks!!!

Ed and Jenny

Wafiq is great to work with. He is a good listener and always polite. He followed up with us consistently to let us know what was going on. He is very impressive with his knowledge of how his company gets the job done. And they sure did!! His suggestions helped us to sell the place and sell it fast. He and his company have impressed folks in this area and hopefully, others will call him.

Larry Herzog, Seller

Wafiq was so very professional even from the first time we met with him. He had the answers to most all our questions and gave us good sound advice. We had an old house that was in need to repair and he saw the potential and worked to find us a buyer with the same clear goals as we had. We all thank him for his time, efforts and being available whenever we called.

Linda Rychlik, Seller

Wafiq was a one of a kind realtor from start to finish for me. I first met him over a year ago and then had to take an abrupt break for 6 months, but he didn't pressure me over that time at all so I went right back to him after the break. He is very professional but also down to earth and was helpful at every step of the way. If there was something that needed to be questioned or researched he would tell me about it and would be prepared with price sheets, property information, and everything in between for every property showing. It would definitely recommend for anyone that is interested in looking for property, from the novice first timers like me to the seasoned investor. Wafiq has a great personality, the confidence to tell you if something isn't right, the persistence to get every detail worked to accommodate your needs, and the knowledge to understand the competitive market.

Jonathan Pennington, Buyer

Buying a home is not an easy task, and for most, can be very challenging. Wafiq taught me a lot on what to look for in a home. Sometimes you want to go with the first few houses you see, Wafiq's interests, however, aligns purely on what is best for his clients. He was nothing but patient with me every time I called him for questions at any given time. From the beginning, Wafiq showed nothing but professionalism. He made what most people see as a very tough process, a very smooth one. He showed me every different type of market and homes Austin, TX has to offer and at the end, with Wafiq's wisdom, I found a home that I can now call mine. His service was superb and if anyone is looking for a genuine realtor whose interests lies purely on what is best for their client-Wafiq is your go-to realtor. Anyone in the market for a new home, give Wafiq a call, he's one of the most knowledgeable people I have met that knows the ins and outs when it comes to real estate! Very grateful to have met him and have him make my dreams come true!

Jerry Ayala, Buyer

Wafiq Alalawi handled our account in a most courteous and professional manner. We were wanting a quick sell and he helped make that happen as promised. He was very reliable and prompt in letting us know day to day situations. We highly recommend him.

Markus Contreras, Seller

I was completely new to this home-hunting game, and Wafiq taught me the ropes and the laws step by step, with patience and detail. He was prompt, attune to our specific lifestyle demands in a new home, and always catered to our schedule when it came to viewings and paperwork. Wafiq is thorough, professional, quick, knowledgeable, and all around just a warm, bright, beautiful human being to talk to.

I wanted to list my home as I was moving to Las Vegas and did not know where to start, so I called back the people that sold me the home because they were so nice. I was very impressed with the presentation and preparedness that they came and walked me through the process. The best part is that there was a team of people, not just one, so whenever I had questions someone was there to help.

Wafiq was always available and constantly updated me with new houses to look at. Wafiq also negotiated a 5000.00 discount for me, which was fantastic!!

Daniel Kearley, Buyer

Great help in finding all the financing I needed to buy. Wafiq always kept me updated, was always available and always sent me properties available. He helped with all my questions.

David Martinez, Investor / Buyer

This is the fourth major purchase I've made with a Real estate agent and by far the best agent I've worked with. Wafiq was always on task. I never felt like I was waiting for him to get to us. He also kept me on task with what I was needing to do and how to do it in the correct order. We bought some land in the country and it was by far the most difficult purchase to date and I'm glad to have had Wafiq there to help us.

Dennis Willis, Buyer

As a first time home buyer, the whole process seems daunting and intimidating. Wafiq was very helpful and supportive throughout the entire process. He would make himself available for last minute viewings and went the extra mile to be a reliable source for status updates and negotiator when the closing got chaotic.

Juliana Garcia, Buyer

Wafiq was an awesome agent for buying a home. He went above and beyond to meet with us, find info for us, and basically walked us thru the home buying process. Highly recommend Wafiq.

Tamara Guerin, Buyer

Wafiq was amazing! He was incredibly knowledgeable, communicative and always available to chat or answer a question. If he couldn't answer it right away, he was dedicated to getting me the info I needed, and always in a timely manner. As a first-time homebuyer, I really felt I had a partner in the process. On a personal level, Wafiq is warm and friendly. Overall, a great and seamless experience working with him!

Katie Plocheck, Buyer

As first-time home buyers, Wafiq was incredibly helpful! He explained every step of the process and repeated it often, so we always knew what was coming next. He recommended and coached us on how to write a personal letter to the seller, which ultimately led to our offer being chosen. He helped us negotiate the price down on our home purchase when everyone else in the market was offering over asking price. He always picked up the phone when we called and was quick to respond to any emails or texts, regardless of the time of day, or whether he was in the middle of a workout at Camp Gladiator. He made us feel important to him, not just because of making a sale, but because he was also looking out for our best interest in the largest investment of our lives to-date. He calls it like he sees it and will let you know if certain homes are not a good purchase. Any questions we had, he would either answer on the spot or find the answer immediately. Despite his busy schedule, he always made time for us and even attended inspections on our behalf, when we were unable to make it. The list goes on, but the best part about home buying with Wafiq was that he made it fun and became a great friend along the way. Thank you Wafiq!

Beau and Sarah Brittenham

Wafiq is a true professional and a joy to work with. He is on top of all of the details and can handle multiple things at once with ease. He helped us navigate the buying process while looking at homes in multiple areas of greater Austin. He was always responsive, attentive, and proactive. I would highly recommend Wafiq personally and Watters International Realty as a company. It is no wonder such a great agent works for such a great company!

Travis and Natalie Deming, Buyers

Wafiq is an excellent sales representative. He was always attentive to our needs and extremely helpful. He always found the information we requested. My husband and I were extremely grateful for Wafiq's services. We highly recommend him for your realty needs.
