The right house for you

How many bedrooms? New construction or an existing home?
Is it a deal-breaker if there’s no dining room?

Everyone’s ideal home is different. That’s why we take the time to listen and understand your needs and wants before we look at even one house together. During your search, we help you stay focused on what matters most and not rush into any purchase.

We’re with you for the long term, not to turn around a quick deal. We’ve found that taking this extra care helps our clients have a more efficient search and buy homes that they’re happy with for years to come.

An easier way home

Preparing to buy a home might have you feeling anxious. Maybe you’ve had a stressful real-estate experience in the past, heard “horror stories” from friends or family, or you’re nervous about entering a hot real-estate market like Austin.

We’re here to help you relax. From search to closing, our knowledge, experience and personalized approach take the stress and hassles out of home buying:

Advice on financing. We can connect you with the best financial folks in the industry to help you nail down attractive financing.

Strong reputation. Because we’re recognized for excellence in the Austin market, we’ll help you compete well in multiple offer situations.

Austin expertise. In business in Austin since 1999, we have deep knowledge of the market, the neighborhoods and local builders.

Pain-free negotiation. We love negotiating, so you always get the best deal.

Careful prep. We’ll guide you through inspections and due diligence before you buy.

Smooth closing. With a dedicated contract to closing specialist, we’ll expertly coordinate and manage the hundreds of steps in a successful closing.

After you buy

Your relationship with us doesn’t end after closing. Here are some of the ways we’ll
continue to take care of you.

Client events and perks. We know how to throw a party! And you’ll be on the guest list as a thank-you for your business and referrals.

Annual property review. Together, we’ll review maintenance items and will look at upgrade opportunities and value. (And please know you can contact us year-round to talk about these concerns as well!)

Vetted referrals. Looking for a service
provider? We’ll connect you to a professional we trust who’s a fit for what you need.

Homestead Exemption reminder. We’ll help you remember to take advantage of Homestead Exemption to reduce the taxable value of your new home.

Local tips. Tap into our Austin knowledge any time you have a question.

Tax protest help. We’ll remind you annually to protest your property tax valuation. (By the way, this is essential to do in the first year after you buy to set a cap on the value early.) We also offer resources such as a video, spreadsheet and data to help you file your protest, as well as referrals to professionals who can file it for you.

January 2022

Lisa and her team were perfect from start to finish. She was referred to us by a friend who also had nothing but good things to say. Lisa provided us a strategic home improvement plan, which we followed and likely resulted in a quick sale for our house at a price we were happy with. If I end up searching for a home in the Austin area, I definitely plan to reach out to her. Likewise, if any friends of mine are searching for a realtor, I'll most definitely be referring Lisa to them.

Wow Wow Wow!

Wow wow wow! We cannot say enough great things about Lisa! We started looking for a new home back in December of 2020 and watched home prices skyrocket. To make matters worse, we were house shopping remotely due to childcare responsibilities and fear of traveling to Austin during the pandemic before vaccines were available. At that time, we were with a different realtor that wasn’t a good fit for us. We put in a few offers and lost out on everyone. We were anxious, scared, and hopeless, so we decided to switch gears, which led us to Lisa. She took us under her wing and provided us firm guidance, confidence, and support. Lisa really took the time to understand our wishes. It felt good to be challenged when we brought up a house that she knew wasn’t right for us, and it gave us a lot more confidence when we found the right house. When that day came, Lisa and her team sprung into action, and we ended up getting our dream home with the first offer Lisa’s team helped us with! We loved Lisa and her whole team! We are so so so grateful for every one of them!

Lisa and her team were there to support us the whole time.

Lisa rocks! Lisa's team rocks! We have been clients of Lisa's since 2005. We have referred our friends and family to her as well. This year was a challenging time to purchase a home, especially for investment. We have been looking since January and had put up a total of 3 offers before finally successfully getting a contract. Lisa and her team were there to support us the whole time. It was an extended engagement. There were times when we were more active, and there were times when we slowed down some, wondering if this was all in vain. A couple of the homes we bid on we had located, but Lisa's vigilant eye and a good understanding of what our limits and needs were led us to one we now own. She helped us modify our strategy in September, and that approach proved to be successful. I couldn't think of a better realtor (and I know a few). I always am the first to recommend Lisa to anyone, friend, family, or other who is looking to purchase a home.

I’ve just completed my 3rd real estate transaction with Lisa Munoz and her amazing team at Realty Austin-Central.  My 3rd transaction was as wonderful as the 1st and 2nd, and these have occurred over a 16 year period of time, both buying and selling. One of the many things I find amazing over these years is the consistency of Lisa’s team. Not just the fact that some of the same, critical people have been a part of her team for so long, but also the consistent quality of execution each member of the team provides. To say they go above and beyond doesn’t seem adequate. They supported me at such a high level of customer service that I never felt like “just a customer” or one of X-number of deals they are handling. You truly have a team there for you, helping you navigate and make great decisions at every step. Additionally, this team listens! That, coupled with their deep knowledge of the Austin market, gave me the confidence to know I was making well-informed decisions aligned with my goals. You will not go wrong by choosing Team Munoz, so go for it!

Best buying process ever!

Can’t say enough positive things about this process. 

Lisa and her team at Realty Austin were nothing short of spectacular.  My wife and I approached this process (and the crazy Austin market) with concern in that we weren't sure we could pull off the purchase of a home that worked for our situation and budget.  That said, Lisa's team was extraordinary (shout out to Teel Warren!) and we were provided excellent advice every step of the way.  Even when we were sure about a place they professionally guided us away by commenting on specific pitfalls that we would've never had caught ourselves.  While my wife and I are engineers and we loved to look at data and challenge some of the notions around why a home may be worth it or not, we ultimately just got to a point through the constant communication with Lisa's team where we completely trusted their opinion.  Having that trust was truly a blessing, especially with our busy lives (two kids and demanding jobs).  Can't say enough positive things about this process.  We'll be using Lisa and her team again in the future without a doubt!
