I've purchased 2 homes and land with Spyglass and have sold 1 home with them as well.
On the house we sold. We set the high comp for the area we sold in. We had multiple offers and the one that ended up winning was because of a follow-up call since they expressed they really liked the house, but didn't make an offer. That follow-up call based on feedback from the buyers realtor got us the best offer.
Ryan, Angel, Sunny and the rest of the team at Spyglass Realty and Investments are nothing short of top notch. Their brilliance in everything from staging, to marketing, to negotiating really shine compared to anyone in the industry. My husband and I were diligent in interviewing many real estate professionals in the Austin area prior to listing our home. We were immediately impressed with Ryan and his knowledge about the market, specific online marketing strategies and analytics, as well as his overall plan to most optimally present our home. Upon deciding to partner with him, he and his team immediately got to work.
Our house was on the market for six months with another realtor, without any serious offers. We changed to Spyglass Realty, and Ryan and Sunny had us four offers within a few weeks. Their knowledge of the market and the staging was phenomenal. They kept us informed of every interaction that took place in the house. The closing was easy, even though we had moved out of state. We are convinced that having a professional realtor is essential. Thank you, Ryan and Sunny!
We have been working with Jennifer at Spyglass Realty for about a month now and are about to close on our first home. We are so happy with our decision to work with Jennifer! She has been patient, communicative, and on top of everything throughout the home buying process. She has been available any time we have needed her, answered every question we've had in detail, and has even followed up to make sure we understand fully. I appreciate this because I am the kind of person who needs to know every little detail before making a decision. She and Ryan were tactical and gave great suggestions with the offering process. They respected our budget, and helped us make a compelling offer that ultimately got us our dream home despite not having the highest offer. TL;DR - great communication + easy to work with + experience, Spyglass Realty and Jennifer were a dream!
I had my property listed before and it did not get the results I wanted so I talked to Spyglass. I was really impressed with how they took everything from the beginning to the end, they helped stage the place, they helped contractors lined up, it was sort of a self contained holistic approach, and I was very pleased with the results. I think one of the things that spyglass did that helped a great deal was that they have such internet presence, that they’re able to come in, have a vision of what they wanted the house to look like make the adjustments and then they were able to present that in a way where people can get to it through different websites, or their own website and also we can see on their website and have tours of the house, it was very effective, I thought. I highly recommend Spyglass.
Ryan, Angel, Sunny, and team were fantastic! I knew right when I met them that they were the right team to help us sell our home quickly for a competitive price. They staged the home beautifully (no extra fee), marketed the home online, created demand, and the house was bombarded with people visiting the first weekend it was on the market. They were in constant contact with us. The house sold at almost exactly what they said it would sell for.....in three days. They do what they say they will do and you can trust their guidance. They were all incredibly friendly and professional. These folks set the standard for all realtors to aspire to. You won’t be disappointed.
Working with John McCarthy from a seller's perspective has been amazing. He is sharp, ambitious and professional. The technical tools he made available gave us to have peace of mind including an app with the ability to give us showing times and feedback instantly so we didn't have to wait for feedback after each showing. Another tool he used allowed us to see the project and any update to it. Complete accountability at every step; we joked that he was setting the bar very high! He handled issues if they arose with a calm and professional demeanor. I highly recommend John and can only imagine the wonders he can do to represent a buyer! We are already discussing the next project with John!
Our experience with Spyglass Realty is really good Ryan was very helpful and he was always there when we pick up the phone or send an email and very responsive with the things that we needed as sellers it was always, you know we had questions or we were nervous about something that you know Ryan was very helpful during the entire process. He also helped a lot with our asking price he fought for that and we greatly appreciate it. Ryan’s wife came by and she helped us staged the house and it was a lot of work but it was worth every second we spent on that she told us exactly what to do, what to leave, what to take out, went to buy to decorate. She was very helpful. Well the outcome of our sales price was asking and that we’re really thrilled to get the asking price for the house. We had two offers, full price on the same day. That’s the best part. Great job guys. We’re very likely to recommend Spyglass to our friends and family, and me too.
They were well organized, professional and very focused on a successful outcome. Although he had numerous projects working at once, we always felt like we were his most important client. The team excels at communication. Day or night, they were extremely responsive . The photos and video, inclusive of aerial views, were incredible and in correlation with the rest of the marketing package, resulted in a full price offer only 1 day after listing. The team was able to secure a record deal for our neighborhood in record time. What more can I say? They are the very best out there. You will not regret partnering with this team.
Here's where I feel they accel over any other real estate firm in Austin: (1) In depth internet marketing strategies combined with beautiful videos and photos to get more targeted eyeballs to your house (2) knowledge of the market (seriously, subscribe to their newsletter just for the information) and (3) they do what they say they're going to do with transparency.
They care and it shows when you work with the Spyglass team. We've referred a few friends and they have the same feedback
