Finding a house with Brenda and Derek was a wonderful experience. They were able to make magic happen with our situation and we couldn't be happier! I would recommend them to anyone in Central Texas!

The Young Team (Brenda and Derek) were both very easy to work with and knowledgeable, and were able to assist/guide me in viewing and getting an apartment in the area within a very short timeframe! It was a smooth and stress-free process :)

Brenda and Derek were absolutely fantastic in helping me find my dream home! Coming from out of state, I wasn't too familiar with the area and they were upfront and honest about each area I was interested in. They were very patient and ensured all the features I wanted in a home were included in the search criteria, in addition to what they knew was best for a Texas home. They were darling to be around and very easy to talk to, making this whole process very exciting from beginning to end. I would 100% recommend their guidance through realty, especially if buying a new home makes you nervous!

"Derek and Brenda Young were fantastic as we searched for a rental home. We were relocating from out of state and had a short amount of time for finding a place. Derek was on point and responsive with email and text. Brenda had some great suggestions and localized market knowledge that helped us to get our place. We will definitely use Derek and Brenda when we are ready to buy!"

"My family and I were relocating to the Austin area and were in need of a home to lease. We were fortunate to work with Brenda and Derek Young. They were extremely helpful during the entire process. They were knowledgeable in all areas, easy to work with, and genuine. I would highly recommend working with Brenda and Derek if you are looking for your next home."

"My friends and I worked with Brenda and Derek Young to locate student housing to attend university. As first-time renters unfamiliar with the area and leasing process, they really made us feel informed and at ease. They were always available to help us and very knowledgeable. Thanks to them we were able to find housing quickly and confidently even through COVID restrictions! I would highly recommend their services."
Allyson Castillo
"We worked with Brenda and Derek Young and they are an amazing team! We were moving to Austin sight unseen and on top of the current COVID restrictions, we were unable to travel and physically see the places but they were so helpful in providing frequent phone calls and videos of the places we were considering. They even went above and beyond by texting us photos of the city. They stuck to our budget and we’re always so helpful even as we were navigating all the unknowns. Not to mention their friendliness made it so easy and comfortable to work with them!"
