Ok, rather than go on and on about “How we’re different”, we’ll let our clients tell you 🙂

 My fiance and I used Ray while looking to purchase our first home. I really can’t say enough good things about him and the Shapley Realty Team! Ray is extremely knowledgeable, approachable, endlessly patient, and incredibly generous with his time (including evenings and weekends). His grasp on both the buying and selling process was very helpful. He answered every question and could help explain every part of the process thoroughly. Buying a home in Austin is competitive, but Ray was extremely responsive to our sense of urgency. I was grateful for Ray’s attention to detail on so many things that most first-time home buyers neglect to notice. His guidance from start to finish was invaluable, and it was affirming that he was more focused on answering our questions andgiving us solid advice, rather closing a deal.

 I purchased my first home last summer, unsure of what to expect and confused by nearly every aspect of the process. The idea of buying a home was completely foreign to me and I felt overwhelmed and ready give it up and sign another lease on an apartment.

I found Ray Shapley serendipitously and I honestly don’t think I would have gone through with a home purchase if it hadn’t been for him. He was super easy to set up a call with – he responded to my inquiry while on vacation and we spoke several times in the coming days/weeks. I always felt like he was listening to me, that he had my best interest in mind, and that together we could confidentiality make a good decision on what to purchase.

I can’t recommend Ray highly enough. He is an outstanding guy whom I feel lucky to have met.

I am very grateful to Ray Shapley and his team for not only finding our dream home, but getting us into a perfect neighborhood community.

Ray was super professional and walked us through the entire process. It was nice having someone you can trust on your side. It took all the anxiety out of making such a life changing purchase.

Ray also helped us sell our house for much more than our asking price in less than a week. I would highly recommend Ray and his team!

 Ray is a 5 star agent. Nobody knows Austin and it’s crazy market better than this guy. He has a helpful network of contractors and inspectors that really come in handy. I have bought and sold two houses with him guiding the way and have done really well!

OUTSTANDING individual! That’s how I would rate Ray. He is the most honest, intelligent, professional, courteous, and quite personable individual.
I have been working with Ray over the last 5 years and have had very successful investments in real estate either in rental homes or just finding the best deal buying lands as a long-term investment. He certainly knows (and has proven to me) the ins and outs of the real estate market in Austin. I have read and heard many other professionals and well-respected realtors in town quoting Ray and his comments on the analysis and the understanding of Austin market. He is a very detailed person, logical, objective and quite straight-shooter!

I have used Shapley real estate to buy and sell houses as well as raw land and even rent an apartment while waiting in my new home to be finished.

They are down to earth people that are smart and hard working. They helped me set prices when I was selling and helped me come up with successful offers when I was buying; all while watching out for me of potential pitfalls that comes in negotiating & buying structures and land.
