Jody personifies so much of what I love about this city — she is worldly, honest, personable, ever-so-competent and generous. But onto the real estate. Even though my bottom-barrel market demographic cannot possibly provide a return on investment, Jody is always available for a showing. but first checking to make sure shady agents aren’t trying to stick unwitting buyers with multiple bid offers, Jody also provides some thoughtful research on market values, bid negotiations and when the time or the place isn’t right, she makes sure to say so. This distinct lack of profit mongering is why I recommend Jody to any friend who asks, and even my dad (who very briefly thought he could be a landlord.) Within three years of living in Austin I’ve had four different real estate ventures, two of which have resulted in really sweet-deal homes. For those new to Austin, Jody can set you up with a few great mortgage brokers, repairmen and possibly a restaurant recommendation. I cannot say enough good things about Jody and the team that she works with. If you are looking for a rental, a purchase, or a buyer you really can’t do much better than this.
Jody Lockshin has listed and sold two of our properties in the last few years. She is a dedicated and effective professional who brings expert knowledge and enthusiasm to the task, as well as being a pleasure to work with. Both properties were sold quickly and with minimal effort on our part. Jody guided us through the process and handled everything. I recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell real estate.
I have worked with Jeff over the last 16 years. Transactions included rental of a house, the sale of a house, and the purchase of two condominiums. Jeff is efficient, gets it right the first time, and never wastes my time. I recommend him without reservation.
We bought & sold a house through Habitat Hunters. Jody did an excellent job selling our house! When she went out of town, she made certain her partner, Jeff, was available & helped us through the buying process. Both of them are very knowledgeable about real estate transactions and the market. They had great tips of what needed to be done to the house to get it ready for market. I was amazed how quickly our house sold & for more than the asking price. I would definitely recommend them & use them the next time I need to buy or sell a home.
I recently purchased two homes as investment properties in Round Rock, TX. Jeffrey is very timely and responsive. He negotiated all aspects of the transaction on my behalf, the fact that Jeff is an attorney sets him apart from any other agent I have used. After the homes closed, Jeff marketed and rented both properties promptly. I would recommend him to any of my friends and family.
Habitat Hunters did a great job selling my house! Jody had a lot of advice and tips to get the house ready for sale. She was able to get a buyer within 48 hours of my listing! We were also able to get the price we had asked for. Throughout the whole process, she communicated well and when we were ready to go, she was right there at our doorstep. She always had our best interest in mind and was great at negotiating on our behalf to get what we wanted. She made everything easy to understand and convenient especially since a majority of the time I was out of town. She kept me in the loop step by step as we proceeded. I would recommend Jody as my real estate agent to anyone. She definitely knows what she is doing and does it well.
Jeff represented me for multiple house purchases (and rentals) as well as for local office space for my company. I’ve also worked with others in the past, but Jeff’s unique combination of legal and real estate expertise has really set him above the rest, not to mention his attention to detail and professionalism which are truly exceptional.
I had a wonderful experience working with Jody to sell my condo. She was always very professional and responded to all of my concerns and questions promptly. My mother is a Realtor in another state, and knowing how much time and effort really goes into this work made me appreciate everything Jody did even more. She knows the market, the area, and what people are looking for. I was very pleased with the end result- a very good selling price and perfect timing for my move. She was very helpful with all the little details that come up with negotiations and sales. I couldn’t ask for anything more. Thank you Habitat Hunters- I will recommend you to everyone in Austin!
Jeff Plotkin is an exceptional Realtor. He listed and sold my home in less than 30 days. In addition, helped me negotiate an offer above my asking price. When I went to buy a home, it was the most efficient process I have encounter looking for a home. The houses were pre-screened, he knew the details of each home and listened carefully for our likes and dislikes. Needless to say, we purchased a home at a great value that we loved. I would highly recommend Jeff as a Realtor.
Nice combination of legal expertise and broker knowledge. Very reasonable to do business with and good resources to back him up. Took the time to address my sales contract concerns and was very open to my input.
Jeff Plotkin and Habitat Hunters are amazing! My family has known Jeff for several years. A former colleague of mine recommended Jeff and Habitat Hunters for real estate services. Even before we were ready to move to Austin and purchase a home, Jeff was willing to show us around to various neighborhoods and show us houses for sale while we were visiting the area. Years later, I received a job offer in Austin and contacted Jeff and Habitat Hunters for real estate services. Our family had specific housing desires (what family doesn’t), and Jeff and Habitat Hunters exceeded our expectations. We lived in our Austin home for over three years. Recently, when it came time to sell our Austin home, we contacted Jeff and Habitat Hunters to put it on the market. Within a few days, we went under contract! Jeff and Habitat Hunters are top notch. My family highly recommends their real estate services for any family looking to make the Austin area their home.
I had a fixer-upper that I needed to sell. Yes, we have a super-hot real estate market in Austin right now. But I soon found out that people looking for this old house are not that numerous. Jody’s crew worked tirelessly vetting the potential buyers. It was not an easy sell. But we SOLD it and they earned every bit of their commission. I have rental properties too. Habitat has delivered to me excellent renters and I plan to use them again should I have a vacancy.
We recently sold our house and we’re very happy with the experience and the result. Our Realtor’s (Jody) knowledge of the Austin market as well as her office’s in-house legal advisor helped us stay one step ahead of the process. We highly recommend Habitat Hunters’ services!
