Dave Powers

I love Austin!

Hi, I'm Dave Powers, and I would love to help guide you through selling and buying your dream home. Are you aware of all the considerations when buying or selling? Do you know the many possible contingencies in the sales contract? Reach out to me, seven days a week, for real estate help.

I'd like to be the person that helps you. I can help with:
  • Buying
  • Selling 
  • Investment property
  • Leasing your rental property
  • Finding you a home to rent
  • Finding you an apartment
  • Helping with your relocation needs to anywhere in the world 

I was in the tech sector for over ten years, and an entrepreneur in China for over five years. This helped me understand the importance of hard work and systems in real estate deals. I want you to have a guide on your side with good processes, communication, and problem-solving techniques. Clear and responsive communication is key to today's real estate market, which is one of the biggest reasons why I have quality relationships with my clients.

I am a family man with an amazing wife and two beautiful twins. We are often practicing our Chinese (Mandarin) at home (跟我练习?), and hiking or playing crossminton when outside. Don't know crossminton? Ask me about it! We absolutely love Austin, its parks, schools, vibe, local businesses, and culture. We know you will too!

I had a really good experience working with Dave Powers.  Dave is very responsible, professional and caring.  Every time I found some houses I was interested in, Dave would make actions (send house information, summary of house quality, set up tour, etc) very quickly (within couple of hours), which makes me work with him very easy and transparent. And he was able to follow up with me about each house after we finished the tour, therefore the whole process went very smoothly.  Since this was my first time buying a house, Dave gave me very instructive guidance and explaniation whenever I had questions or things he think I should know or notice during the house tour, house closing, etc. And he also taught me some useful tips for maintaining the house/ house equipment in good quality, which I did not expect I could learn for the past these 3 months.  Working with Dave is very easy for me, when we scheduled the tour, he was able to consider my comfortable timing. Also, he told me to not rush, and give myself enough time to make any decisions. So I can follow my own timeline to buy the house that I like.  I would love to work with Dave in the future, and highly recommend people to work with him!

Dave was super helpful in our search and even did virtual tours for us since our schedule was tight. I would totally reach out to him again for our next move.

My family and I needed a larger residence and we needed it on short notice.  On a whim, I called JBGoodwin and luck blessed me with Dave Powers.  He did far more than his job.  One night he was texting with me about houses until almost 10pm.  He was able to fit us in for showing on short notice and helped us present ourselves better to prospective landlords.  It was an emotional ride.  The market is so tight and moves so quickly.  We missed out on one place because of a parking ticket.  It was pretty demoralizing to be rejected for something so inconsequential, but David talked us through it, gave us a shot of confidence and we got the next place.  This is the guy!

Dave took amazing care of us!  We relocated to Austin and he helped us find the perfect home.  He considered our needs and wants, and truly delivered on that.  He was creative and tactical, and that gave us an advantage in this competitive market.  I recommend Dave to anyone.  Can't wait to work with him again!

Buying a home sure is stressful, we had many concerns.  We are glad we ran into Dave.  He helped us find the right home, walked us through the whole process.  There was a lot we didn't know.  He is approachable and responsive.

I had the pleasure of meeting and working with Dave recently in looking for a home for my parents.  Dave was so helpful in guiding my parents through the process of putting an offer and going through the contracts line by line and answering any questions we had.  He was extremely patient and accommodating in meeting us at every property and if we wanted to see it twice,  he was there.  Dave really went the extra mile and it shows in how much he cares for his client's needs.  I would definitely recommend Dave Powers to anyone looking to sell or buy a house and would love to work with him again!
