The maximum, not just the minimum: Exceeding Expectations and Qualifications.
Did you know that a Real Estate Agent and a Realtor® are not the same thing? A Texas Real Estate Agent is anyone licensed by the Texas Real Estate Commission (TREC) to sell or lease a house or property on behalf of another. A Texas Realtor® is a member of the Texas Association of Realtors® (TAR) and has a higher level of education.
In addition, Realtors® subscribe to the Code of Ethics and Standards of Practice of the National Association of Realtors®, so you know they will operate under the highest ethical standards. We suggest you read Summary of the Realtors® Code of Ethics, if you have any questions about them, let us know!
When deciding on a Realtor® keep in mind that ALL Habitat Hunters Agents are Realtors®. No matter what service you’re in need of you will receive only the highest level of knowledge, care, and customer service to meet all your real estate needs.
What you need, not just what is easiest, honesty is integral.
When buying a home, you want to make sure you are in honest hands. At Habitat Hunters, customers love us because we find them what they need, not what is the easiest to close. Honesty and integrity are at the heart of what we do. It’s our commitment and the personal attention you’ll receive with Habitat Hunters that makes all the difference.
There is nothing like old-fashioned knowledge.
Our 40+ years of experience with sellers, buyers, and renters in Austin gives working with us a distinct advantage over other real estate companies. We have been in Austin since 1972. In those years we’ve seen it all, and it’s our experience that can make the process of selling your home, or conducting an Austin home search a better, smoother one for you.
Legal support makes all the difference.
Navigating the paperwork and legalities in buying or selling a property is hard at best. It helps to have someone with experience in the field on your side. At Habitat Hunters, Jeff Plotkin, one of the only local REALTORS® who is also an Attorney and CPA, joined the firm in 1992. Usually, Realtors® are prohibited from providing legal advice, but working with Habitat Hunters means that you can get a full range of advice from Jeff. Additionally, Jeff graduated with honors from the prestigious UT School of Law.
Don’t wait for days to hear back.
At Habitat Hunters our constant availability and immediate responsiveness help us stand apart to help you get real answers and real results about real estate, real fast! We could say more, but Habitat Hunters customer, Kalpana S. said it best!
“Highly responsive: There have been several times we have needed statistics on recently sold comparable properties in the neighborhood broken down by several various factors. The response is always within half an hour.”
