In 2004, Yvette became a licensed Real Estate Broker and joined forces with her husband Jonathan Boatwright, who had 16 years of experience in technology, to build a different kind of real estate company.

Broker/Owner's Jonathan and Yvette Boatwright have built an impressive real estate company. Realty Austin approaches the real estate experience in a way that the consumer client, industry partner AND the realtor appreciate. They have recruited an amazing team of support staff and realtors to add a refreshing collective to the Austin area. It is a company that prides themselves on education, technology, community involvement, and professionalism but wouldn't know how to do all of that without making sure to have a little fun along the way. It is a joy to do business with them and any of their agents!

Lacey W., Yelp Review

Thanks to both Yvette and Jonathan for doing your usual great job in getting our house sold quickly, and at full asking price!  The insight, guidance, and attention provided were invaluable.

We've bought and sold many homes over the years. The Boatwright team is the best!!

When I decided to relocate my company from San Francisco to Austin, the rapidly approaching start of the school year meant we had about 30 days to find temporary housing in the right school district, find a local realtor who new the Austin area, and figure out how to navigate an unknown town and real estate market. We were up for the adventure, though, and so we began what we were sure would be the very, very difficult job of trying to get the lay of the land from 1200 miles away!

Fortunately for us, one of our first calls was to Yvette Boatwright of Realty Austin, and with that, half the work was done, and we knew we'd found the best possible Realtor. Yvette and her team even helped us find short-term corporate housing in our target school district, set us up with a personal web site to view available listings and to share our thoughts on each home as it came available, and supplied invaluable information about everything from climate and taxes to the best places to eat and best playgrounds. Yvette even found us a preschool opening for our three year old, and all this before we'd even left California! In all our experience buying and selling homes, we'd never experienced such kindness, or such above-and-beyond consideration.

When we finally got to Austin and met Yvette and her team, we quickly learned that all their help thus far had been just the tip of the iceberg. Yvette's real forte is finding the perfect house for your particular needs, and making the buying process as smooth as anything we'd ever experienced. Thanks to the web site she'd set up and the comments we'd been sharing, we were all on the same page the very first time we went out to look at homes. But we still looked at literally every home in the area which met our criteria, and the whole time Yvette listened, honestly advised us, and kept careful track of our likes and dislikes. We were never rushed, and we could tell that Realty Austin was working to find not just a sale, but the perfect home for our family.

As luck would have it, THE perfect home did come up on the MLS listings one day, and Yvette spotted it, called, and arranged to meet us there within 90 minutes of its listing. The home met literally every criteria we'd hope for, and a few we didn't think we'd find. We decided to write an offer on the spot, and we'd have never been in such a perfect position if Yvette hadn't known our tastes so well and moved so fast to make it happen.

From our first phone conversation through inspections and lending, regardless of the challenges and with amazing knowledge, professionalism, and kindness, Yvette Boatwright and everyone at Realty Austin made our cross-country relocation as smooth as possible. We love Austin, we love our new home, and we'd recommend that anyone looking for real estate help of any kind should call Yvette first.

The level of professionalism, commitment and knowledge Yvette has shown is the highest we have ever seen in a realtor. From day one it felt like a partnership between us as Yvette listened to our needs and goals and translated them into finding the perfect home and now managing the leasing of our property. She always puts our best interests first and gives very sound, objective advice.

Not only was I impressed by Realty Austin's wonderful care but by the high standards of excellence of your affiliated vendors.

Laurie Steffano

Mrs. Boatwright's excellent knowledge of Realtor matters was most helpful leading to the successful acquisition of a nice home, which of course was the objective. She kept me fully advised during the crucial period leading up to the closing, she was always available by phone and always cheerful and understanding when listening to my concerns. Yvette is an excellent listener and her advice is always sound.

Yvette is honest, attentive and personable. She bends over backwards to respond quickly and accurately. We would recommend Yvette to our friends- She's just fabulous!

Mr. & Mrs. Russ Brennan, CFO, Silicon Labs

Even though I was a first time home buyer, Yvette's expertise in real estate made me feel at ease with the home-buying process.

Adam Bleakley, Teacher, AISD

I remember how excited and scared I was when I was in the process of buying my first house. Yvette was there to cheer me on and walk me through the process. I cannot tell you how much it means to feel complete trust in your agent's skills.

Andrea Botan, R.N.

We highly recommend Yvette Boatwright and Realty Austin. She and her team had helped us with the purchase of our home in the past and we were glad to call her again to handle its recent sale. We were thrilled with her efforts to sell our home in a timely manner and at our asking price even during a skittish market. We were really impressed with the variety of media Realty Austin used to list our home. The Realty Austin website was a valuable tool that aided us in our new home search. Looking for a new home was so simple with potential homes meeting our search criteria being e-mailed to us everyday. Yvette was always available to us and just a phone call away with answers to our questions. She has great insight into market trends and offered exceptional advice to help us make the right decisions.

Yvette advised us to fall in love with our house. She helped us seek out our next home not just a piece of property. I feel that Yvette truly cared about our needs. Yvette helped us to realize our dream of home ownership on a small budget.

Yvette was always trying to accommodate our difficult schedules, easy to work with, very knowledgeable with the market and a trusted resource we depended on when considering a home. I would recommend Realty Austin to my friends and family.
