Jonathan and Yvette,

RA is a truly special place. Rockstars across the board. From other agents to ASMs, to support staff, every person I've met has been so willing to go above and beyond to help me. The people are so warm and welcoming, and I'm really impressed with the caliber of the other agents. There are a lot of people I can learn a lot from.

Jonathan and Yvette,

I wanted both of you to know how thankful I am for Realty Austin. I started last summer here at RA, and it has literally saved my real estate business. I feel like it’s a privilege to work here, and I just wanted both of you to know how thankful I am. I love everything about Realty Austin and everything you guys have created. The culture, systems, agents, just everything is amazing.

Jonathan and Yvette,

I am happy to be here at Realty Austin and am impressed with Jonathan and Yvette. Not just in the successes they have, but with the people that they are, both because of and despite those successes. It radiates in everything Jonathan and Yvette do.

Chad Proctor

Jonathan and Yvette,

The work culture at Realty Austin is so refreshing. I used to envision what it would be like to sell real estate in a company that was truly like a company instead of a reactive, poorly managed brokerage. I knew this type of company was possible, but I didn't believe it existed. But, it does, and I am so thankful to have finally landed here! I feel happy, motivated, inspired and determined. Realty Austin strives to develop and maintain solutions addressing industry challenges including lead generation (comprised of people who are searching for property in Austin)! The ENTIRE SALESFORCE PLATFORM is amazing, and I am enjoying the administration support and mentorship of other agents.

I pinch myself every day because I continue to be in awe of the support and available, ongoing training opportunities. I attended the November Ninja, which was AMAZING! Not at all what I expected but so much more. Such a life application program. Thank you for creating and caring for such an amazing company. I feel so blessed to be here.

Jonathan and Yvette,

Realty Austin has changed my view of "success." I spend more time with my babies than most moms I know. I've had my license three years and hope to hit my $8.5M goal by EOY, and I actually ran my first two marathons ever earlier this year, the 3M and the Austin. Jonathan and Yvette are a dynamic duo; Yvette's heart and Jonathan's mind are a partnership and force to be reckoned with! I want to thank them for the love and support they show all us agents. I am so grateful for Jonathan and Yvette!

Shannon Owen

Jonathan and Yvette,

Having access to seamlessly integrated technology across the customer journey is great. The technology that I have access to has really helped me focus on my business vs. having to figure out everything myself. Having specialized team resources available such as the coordination team or my sales manager has also enabled me to grow my business within just the past four months that I have been with Realty Austin.

Cindy Mace

Jonathan and Yvette,

Jonathan and Yvette are the most supportive, engaged, ethical, and progressive ​Brokers in Austin! They are outstanding leaders in business and philanthropy. They give Realty Austin agents the tools to succeed and provide a work environment that encourages and rewards success as evidenced by the over $2B in sales in 2017. They walk the talk; Work Hard, Play Hard, and Give Back!!!

Deborah Novelli

Jonathan and Yvette,

Every day I wake up thanking God for Y'All! What can I say? I am beyond blessed to be under your wings. Thank you for all you do for us and our clients! I am so happy to be with such a team, #forevergreatfulforyou!

Natalia Roush

Jonathan and Yvette,

In January 2014 I decided to change brokerages and join Realty Austin. As crazy as it sounds, the main enticement for me was the happiness the agents seemed to have working there. Coupled with the company's advanced technology and focus on giving back to the community, the decision was a no-brainer for me. Four years later I have yet to be disappointed! Yvette and Jonathan Boatwright walk the talk and work tirelessly to improve us and Realty Austin. I am so proud to be a part of Realty Austin and thank my lucky stars every day that I decided to join the company. The future holds great things for Realty Austin, and I am excited to be part of that movement and growth! Thank you, Yvette and Jonathan!

Victoria Wilson

Jonathan and Yvette,

I have been in the real estate business for over 26 years, and have had only had one other Broker that compared to the leadership that Jonathan and Yvette provide. They are quick to make changes as needed to stay ahead of our competitors. They offer education and encourage everyone to participate. Jonathan and Yvette have skills that soar far beyond the real estate market. However, their passion is to be in this profession assisting and encouraging top producers like myself to reach the next level in my career. I am very grateful for all you have done for David and I.

David and Kelly Thate

Jonathan and Yvette,

I cannot say enough good things about the excellent leadership of Jonathan and Yvette Boatwright. They have excellent brains and experience for the best ways to do real estate going forward into the future! I value their judgment and mentorship, professionalism and are philanthropical.

Caren Upshaw

Jonathan and Yvette,

Jonathan and Yvette are the real deal. Their interest in growing their agents and the community is by far the best I have ever seen. From technology to giving back they outdo themselves every year. The fast pace of our industry can get overwhelming at times, but Jonathan keeps us up to date and leading edge. Yvette reminds us that is about the relationships, people, and community. So as we are working hard, she reminds us to have fun, give back and have a balance between work and family. Without the tools they provide for us, we could not do this. I am so grateful for their amazing talent and leadership!

Gigi McClaskey

Jonathan and Yvette,

When I arrived at Realty Austin a little less than a year ago, I'd not ever used a contract to close or compliance assistant. I was strongly encouraged to do so when I joined. I'll have to admit I was a bit skeptical at first and a little apprehensive compensating someone to do what I'd done on my own for years. Fortunately I took the leap of faith and used a contract to close assistant on my first deal here. I've used one ever since and wouldn't think about not using one going forward. Anastasia Duarte is the absolute "BOMB!". She is there for me every step of the way. My clients love her and love her organizational skills. She holds their hand through the entire process, is what some may consider over communicative (which you can never be) and always available. Along with our market, office, lead team managers, awesome marketing department generating our Facebook ads within 24 hours of any changes in our listings, sales or open houses. The back end, infrastructure, behind the scenes staff are absolutely Second To NONE!! I've been in the corporate world in the past and can say without a doubt this is the best team I've ever had the pleasure and opportunity to work with.

Jonathan and Yvette,

Jonathan and Yvette have been instrumental in taking my business to the next level. By providing cutting-edge technology, weekly education and training opportunities, implementing processes that help me remain compliant as well as save time and finally by staffing our offices with the BEST support professionals and management, they have strengthened my business more than I knew how to do on my own or with other brokerages. I am forever grateful for Jonathan and Yvette!

Marci Revelle

Jonathan and Yvette,

Yvette and Jonathan are amazing, and I smile every time I think about the choice I made to hang my license under them. Their leadership is over and beyond anything I have ever thought possible in this industry. They really do truly care about every one of their agents and show us they care, which goes a long way in my book. Yvette and Jonathan, you are very much appreciated and thank you for allowing me to have you as my broker.

Gail Huebel

Jonathan and Yvette,

Wow! I am thrilled to have joined the Realty Austin family! The leadership of Jonathan and Yvette Boatwright is outstanding in example, inspiration, enthusiasm, and agent support. I so appreciate the importance they give to providing resources for agents so that we can excel in our businesses and promote a life balance. Their vision is a step ahead, and they consistently reevaluate to improve or refine systems and processes. Thank you, Jonathan and Yvette!!!

Laurie Kriegel

Jonathan and Yvette,

Jonathan and Yvette are involved and caring people. They have integrity, intelligence and do it while bringing joy and happiness to the people around them; they're contagious! They make a great team, they're a force to be reckoned with, and they lift and inspire us agents, their team, and family to do as they do. They also give so much support to us agents, by way of technology and tools, encouraging personal growth and as a whole, in the community, in philanthropy. I can't be any prouder or happier with this company and being led by these two people. Hats off and thank you, Yvette and Jonathan Boatwright.

Salma Manzur

Jonathan and Yvette,

I have longed for the opportunity to be a part of a real estate company like Realty Austin for quite some time. Realty Austin is a company that is so dynamic, are always on the leading edge of the latest technology, and is truly engaged in the success of their agents. When I say this I mean it; they are always looking for ways to make Realty Austin a place where those who are serious about their business can thrive. Realty Austin is a company that really cares about the community and home we call Austin. Jonathan and Yvette Boatwright have gotten it right and have created a tribe of agent professionals that really work together to "DO" the business a Realtor is meant to do. They have also gathered one of the finest assemblies of high powered go-getters in their corporate team to re-define what success means in the field of Real Estate. My wife and I are incredibly proud to serve this great company, our clients, and the Boatwright family and hope to do so for many years to come. Thank you, Yvette and Jonathan, for your service to our industry as it is people like you that inspire me to always do my best work!

Steve Siegwalt

Jonathan and Yvette,

Jonathan and Yvette are amazing, caring leaders who run an organization where we can thrive as Realtors and as citizens of Austin too! Their care for each of us, for our work and our community, are inspiring and amazing! We all love their mission to serve our city and to do our best work for our clients, and with the tools offered, we can easily do this while having a (fun) life! They are genuine people who run the best brokerage in the US!

Holly McCormick

Jonathan and Yvette,

Jonathan and Yvette are industry leaders and innovators. To put it frankly, they simply get it! Jonathan and Yvette clearly recognize that if they invest in their agents that their agents and Realty Austin as a whole will be more successful. They have implemented cutting-edge systems which give me the opportunity to leave the mundane business tasks to others and allow me to truly concentrate on my clients. As an agent and Broker Associate, I am proud and thankful to be a part of Realty Austin. If you are looking to take your real estate business to the next level, Realty Austin is where you will have the resources and fabulous support staff to make that happen.

Allison Olson

Jonathan and Yvette,

Yvette and Jonathan are fantastic Brokers, and they genuinely care about the agents and staff at Realty Austin. It feels like you work with them, not for them. They run a tight ship, but for all the right reasons. Their desire for success is contagious among the agents, and I'm happy to be a part of it.

Nicole Herrera

Jonathan and Yvette,

While my tenure at Realty Awesome has only been nine months, it has been plenty long enough to know that it is the right place for me- both personally and professionally. Thank you for your vision, your passion, your support and your confidence. You inspire me.

Doug Vogelsass

Jonathan and Yvette,

I wanted to thank you for bringing Ninja to Austin and making this possible for me to attend. I wasn't sure what I had signed up for but was confident enough to know that if so many great people thought it was awesome, that I would too. Within the first hour, I knew it was right where I needed to be! My thanks to you for having such wonderful vision and forming such an amazing company. I am blessed to be a part of it and I can't wait to go do amazing things. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Christie Guess

Jonathan and Yvette,

As I was listening to your presentation, I was thinking that I was sorry I had not "made the move" when you first reached out 13 years ago when you started the company. Thank you for your forward thinking leadership and keeping our motto, "work hard, play hard, give back", an important part of who we are as a community.
