I got to know about Spyglass through a flier that I received from them. I kept it in my file because no realtors I worked, or talked with in Austin were willing to oversee serious renovations let alone provide free staging, and I thought what Spyglass was doing was very very unique. About a year later I was in the middle of a disastrously over budget and behind schedule rehab project I was conducting from out of state (I chose to work with a realtor friend's family member--which was a big mistake) So I cold called Ryan in desperation and that was how we met. Spyglass took over the project with amazing efficiency and ease. Ryan's wife Angel made all the design decisions and handled the staging, which I believe made all the difference for the final sale price. When it hit the market my du-plex looked simply amazing--it received 6 offers within a few days and we sold it to the highest bidder for $12500 over already aggressively priced asking. It was one of the most exciting and rewarding real estate moments for me. Spyglass team made sure everything went very smoothly during escrow and we closed on schedule--it was a pleasure working with them!!
I interviewed several realtors when I decided to sell an investment property that I had owned for more than 10 years, and am so glad I chose Spyglass. Ryan, Angel, and Sunny worked closely with me from start to finish, and helped me make the best upgrades to the property that would bring the highest rate of return. I believe wholeheartedly that their combination of market knowledge, professional staging, pricing strategies, and marketing techniques are what allowed me to sell my property for significantly more than what I expected. This was the fourth project like this I have completed, but the first one with Spyglass on my side. I will not be considering any other realtors for my future projects!

From start to finish, Spyglass Realty was amazing! We have lived in several cities prior to living in Barton Hills and have yet to experience a service like theirs. Angel and Sunny were stellar at getting the house prepped and checked before going to market, so good that we almost didn't want to leave the house because they made it look so good. Ryan was on top of things from the start keeping us informed of buyers interested, feedback, etc. It was as though they treated us like family and took a vested interest in helping us get the best deal for house in what can be a stressful situation. We had multiple offers within the first day on market and I give all the credit to Spyglass and their process for making this happen!! If this wasn't enough, Ryan even helped us coordinate a lender for our new home out of state which was able to get us the best rate. He didn't have to do that but really spoke volumes to us and the quality of person he is. Thank you Ryan, Angel and Sunny!! We truly appreciate all that you did and for making us feel like part of your family during this process!!

We had a great experience working with Ryan and everyone on their team at Spyglass. The team really went out of their way to help us sell an investment property. From the start Ryan & his team provided us with all of the information we request in a timely manner. They helped us understand how making a few improvements to the property would increase our profits and decrease the amount of time the home would sit on the market. They worked with our property management company to make the switch as seamless as possible. They secured work bids for us for making the improvements, arranged for the entry of utilities personnel, and even include the staging of our property with their furniture. The professional photos they arranged were excellent. Since we lived out of town this kind of service was way more than we were expecting to receive. The initiative they took saved my wife and I several trips to Austin just to make sure that things were going as planned. The house was listed on a Thursday evening and we had an offer on the home the following Saturday.

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. 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.
