Why We're Different

What Makes Uptown Realty The Best Choice?


Developing Expertise

As you may know by now, not all Austin realty companies are created equal. Some focus solely on buying and selling real estate, while others help renters find a home for the year. Our agent’s diverse backgrounds allow us to operate as a one-stop realty shop. Many of our agents have been with us since we opened our doors in 2006, giving us the experience we need to help you buy or sell a home, pre-lease an apartment, or ethically and professionally manage your property. We’re able to do it all because we have done it all, over and over again. And still, every new situation, every contact, is treated as though it’s the most important business interaction we’ve ever been part of – because it is. As an Austin real estate agency, we are always in the process of honing our craft, adding to our expertise. Once you’re in contact with us you have access to years and years of experience and some of the most tenured agents in Austin, Texas realty.


Buying and Selling Your Austin Home

Whether you want to explore Austin real estate for sale or to list your existing property, we have a single goal: to provide you with a seamless experience while employing honest, loyal and ethical business practices. We are aware of just how many Austin Realtors there are and how many people are vying for your business. What we do that other Austin real estate brokers may not do is listen – really listen to what it is you need and want. Whether you’re a first time homebuyer,  hope to purchase a property for your UT student that will provide housing while building equity, sell a home you have lived in for decades, or simply want to know what your property is worth, our focus is on hearing you. We know that each real estate transaction is as unique as the client we’re working with and it’s for that reason that our plan for working with you will be unique to your specific needs.


Rentals in Austin, TX

If you’re an apartment hunter looking for an Austin Realtor, you’re sure to find dozens of links to companies promising to help. One of the things we are known for is our ability to connect home searchers with the apartment or house that will best serve their needs. It’s not enough for us to simply go through our list of available rentals and rush you through in hopes that you will sign a contract. We make every attempt to find the “right” rental. That includes knowing how far you want to be from work or school. If you’re a student at The University of Texas, it means learning whether a north or west campus rental is best for you. Not all Austin realty companies do that, making it a point of pride for us. If you’re not a student we dig to find accommodations that will fit your lifestyle, homes near the places you most want to be when you’re not at work. We know that one of the intangible benefits of living in a particular neighborhood is the ability to stop into your favorite watering hole or café after an evening stroll or walking your dog in a peaceful park that you’ve come to love. Home isn’t just about the structure in which you live, but also the people and places you see when you walk out your front door. Again, there are many Austin Realtors, but few work as hard as we do to match a place with a person.  


Investment Management

As an investor, you know that the first step involves finding the perfect property. When it’s time for you to buy a house in Austin, we’re able to leverage our long-standing relationships to locate both on and off-market properties most likely to provide a healthy return on investment. Further, we’re ready to introduce you to local lenders, inspectors, contractors, and others who will help streamline the process. Of course, buying property may be the easiest step. Once the paperwork is signed, we work to attract the right tenants, make sure your property is professionally featured and represented, draft lease contracts, and take all other property management concerns off your plate including utilizing our in house maintenance team.

The Search Begins

Whether you’re looking to buy, sell, lease, or want us to manage your investment property, our primary focus will always be on you – of that you can be certain. Register or sign-in to view our properties. Make a list to share with one of our agents and together, we are confident that we can find you the perfect place to call home.

I worked with Russell Cavin, and he was fantastic! We had some drama with roommates at the last minute and ended up going from looking for a 3 bedroom to a 2 bedroom. He is very professional and very easy to talk to. He found places that fit all of our requirements and didn't rush us into doing anything we didn't want to do. He promptly responded to all my emails and was willing to stay late to work with us. I would HIGHLY recommend using Russell!

Joe was super helpful and imparted his knowledge to help me make the best decision.  He was a trooper & understood that I was a novice, showing me tons of properties.  Months later we finally put an offer in. Joe was confident this would yield a strong return.  Both units of the duplex were vacant, after some light remodeling from a contractor Joe recommended, he had the units rented within a week. I will use Joe and Uptown when it comes to future investments and would encourage anyone to do the same!
by Cole Adams
Max is really good at what he does. He knows the minute-by-minute of the market here in Austin and really goes out of his way to offer a lot of options. While other real estate agents referred us to the properties we already knew about through advertisements, Max personally contacted small condo owners. This gave us the opportunity to find a perfect place at a good location for a good price. We went back to him this year to find a place for next year.

There just aren't enough kind things to say to justify how awesome my experience was with Uptown Realty and Russell Cavin.  I was moving due to an emergency, and Russell's kindness made a huge difference in making my whole situation better. I highly recommend Russell to anyone searching for a place to live. He is communicative, respectful, and works tirelessly in finding exactly the right place for you.

I would recommend giving Marcus Federman at Uptown Realty a call if you are in need of housing in the Austin area. After living in the West Campus area for the last 5 years, you deal with some pretty sketchy real estate agents. Marcus was able to find my friends and I an awesome house, in a great area, for a great price. The owner of the house tried to jack the price up on us, but Marcus was able to talk him down. Overall, a quick, and painless experience.

I had a really good experience with Laura Cochrane. I was looking for apartments on a tight deadline, and she was able to show me some excellent choices. I appreciated her professionalism and especially that she made copies of all the documents for me without me having to ask. The whole process was painless and everyone was highly responsive. I'd recommend Laura and Uptown Realty if you're looking for an apartment in central Austin!

Russell Cavin was simply great. He was tireless in his effort to provide us the best service possible when purchasing a condo in Austin. I cannot recommend him enough! He will be the first person I call to service my future real estate needs.

Russell Cavin helped me find the perfect spot here in Austin when the market was crazy high for rentals. He was always easy to get in contact with and was very knowledgable about the area. Couldn't have been better!
by Mike Watson
My experience with Uptown Realty has been top notch. Max Smirnoff is always on point. He has helped me sign two leases in the past two years and my loyalty remains with him. He showed us several places that I loved and he abided to my schedule. I am already looking forward to meeting with him again. Uptown Realty definitely gets the job done.
