David Lessenberry

I joined JB Goodwin REALTORS® because I firmly believe in their mission statement, which is simply “Help People.”  Let me HELP YOU with your real estate needs!  I understand that buying, selling, or leasing can be daunting, but it doesn’t have to be.  I will walk you through the process with honesty, integrity, and in a way that is easy to understand. 

I am a native Texan who was raised in a real estate family devoted to the real estate profession and a Navy veteran with 26 years of military service.  I was very fortunate to have great experiences throughout my naval career and my last assignment was to the Embassy of the United States in Paris, France.  Two experiences stand out: participation in the 65th anniversary ceremonies for D-Day in Normandy and being chosen as the wreath-layer for the presidents of France and the United States at the G-20 Summit in Cannes.  After retiring from the Navy, I attended The University of Texas at Austin and earned a B.A. in International Relations and Global Studies and a certificate in Security Studies and I am a member of the elite Dean's Dozen awardees for my mentorship and volunteerism at U.T. 

I love to travel and learn about different places and cultures.  Currently, I have visited 36 of our great states and 35 countries.  I enjoy hanging out with my dog, Roqie (pronounced Rocky), working in my yard, fixing things around the house, and visiting unique places around Austin and throughout Texas.

Very helpful and made the process very easy!

I used David Lessenberry as an agent to help find a rental unit. I needed a place near UT’s campus a month before school started, which is unheard of (leases are normally signed a year or more in advance). David did the impossible and found me multiple excellent options within my price range, arranged tours around my odd and difficult schedule, and walked me through the entire process. I was beyond stressed after trying to do it all myself, but thanks to David, I ended up with a beautiful place right off campus.

5 stars isn't enough, absolute rockstar here. I moved back to Austin from out of state so touring apartments was a non-option. I worked with David Lessenberry and from the moment I texted him until after moving into my apartment he was in full contact. He provided a comprehensive breakdown of apartments in key areas, with a bevy of information including price, and specific pet policies. Having a large dog it was difficult on my own to find an apartment but David made it easy. He went to look at places and was never bothered or inconvenienced whenever I would call or text him. Any housing needs I have going forward I will be using him and this team.

"If you are looking for a knowledgeable, friendly, and hardworking realtor then David Lessenberry is the realtor for you! David's persistence and expertise are the reasons we are in our dream home. It took about a year for our home to be built, and David was with us every step of the way. He made the home building/purchasing process stress-free. Highly recommend!"
Shauna Hogberg
"Using the VA Loan, my wife and I thought that homeownership would never be possible in Austin. Previous relators either failed to understand the loan or failed to give us the time of day for using it. However, David Lessenberry went above and beyond to find us our dream home. Being a veteran himself and experienced in real estate, he turned the VA loan from a burden to an advantage. I worked with multiple realtors before I found David, so I strongly believe that if you want someone that is incredibly knowledgeable in all things real estate and genuinely cares about you and your family, give him a call."
Axton Vorpahl
"Big shoutout to David L.!  He helped my boyfriend and me find a beautiful and decently priced apartment that never even showed up on apartments.com or any of those sites.  We love our new home."
Miah Gunderson
"My wife and I have had a few experiences with other realtors and our experience with David Lessenberry was by far the best. He listened and took into consideration our wants and needs when showing us listings. David walked us through the basics of home buying and made us feel comfortable and confident with our final decision. Even after choosing the house, David stayed in contact with us and continuously made trips to the place while it was getting constructed. Throughout the whole home-building process and a few disagreements with the builder, David served almost like a personal consigliere guiding us through and having us ask the right questions. David Lessenberry had our back. He has all the knowledge, patience, and confidence you can ask for from a real estate agent. In a competitive market like in the Austin area, you want someone on your side with the years of experience David has. He made our first home buying experience as smooth as one can ask for. David is timely and sincere and will work for you and your best interest. We highly recommend him to anybody looking to get the most out of their home buying experience. Thank you, David!"

David Lessenberry helped my fiance and I move from New Mexico to Austin recently. It was a very big move for us but with David's help, our move was much much easier. He was with us every step of the way and went above and beyond our expectations. We couldn't have made the move without him! We highly recommend him!

Shann Staggs

My Fiance and I just recently relocated to the Austin area from New Mexico. This felt like a difficult task at first because we could not spend much time in Austin looking for a home to rent before we moved, especially having pets and a budget. David made this process an easy as it could possibly be. He was in contact with us daily about new listings, worked with us to make our application stronger, helped us schedule viewings of the homes on a tight schedule, and got us into the perfect place by our deadline. He has been extremely friendly, professional and even though we knew he was busy, we always felt like a top priority. I cannot say enough good things about him! Highly recommend him for dining your next home!

I had the pleasure of working with Mr. David Lessenberry. Moving halfway across the world comes with a lot of stress and variables. I am happy to say that Mr. Lessenberry was referred to me through a veterans page and I am so grateful for his help. He is veteran friendly and understands the rigor of the life and all the challenges we as service members / veterans face. So if you are unsure where to go then go to him. He worked tirelessly while I was located in another country to get me everything I needed and wanted. I now have a great place for my family. He searched and searched and upon arrival to the states had places ready to go. It wasn’t even a half a day before I selected the place best suited for my family. He was knowledgeable, courteous, and very informative. I will forever be grateful to the work he has done and the stress he relieved when making a move to a different country.

"Working with David has been great! David has provided an enormous amount of guidance in my first-time home buying experience. He's very personable and attentive to my wishes. His wealth of knowledge in Texas real estate and his ability to elucidate the entire process has made this enjoyable. Always responsive and timely. I highly recommend David."
