About Me:

Have been living and working in the Austin area for the past 44 years. In 2010 I retired from a fulfilling teaching career. I taught grades 4 – 8 and really enjoyed helping students learn. Now that I work in real estate I get to help people buy and sell their homes. Teaching is really about learning skills or information and sharing that knowledge with others. My teaching experience coupled with my passion to learn more about the evolving Austin real estate market can be real helpful to you as my client. 

I have been married to a wonderful woman for 54 years and we have three children and six grandchildren. Love to sail on Lake Travis, cycle with my riding buddies around Lady Bird Lake and enjoy playing golf and volleyball. I am active in my church, St. Thomas More, I am a U.S. Army Veteran and love to travel. I have traveled to Europe, the Med., including Turkey, and to Central America and Australia.  I have also had fun exploring our great nation from Alaska to Florida.

"Even though Real Estate commissions are high, when you have Jack Shanley as your Realtor, you will get the greatest return for your property. Jack Shanley is knowledgeable, intensely attentive to details, such as real estate law and sensitivity and support to the needs and preferences of his client. Jack will not let you down and he will provide his excellent experience, advice, and recommendations, even when the client thinks they are right. We have used Jack Shanley twice--first as our buying agent and 5 years later, as our selling agent. Each time Jack was our agent, we were thankful that he is so knowledgeable, professional, assertive, experienced, and always representing his client 100%."

"Jack Shanley is the best realtor I have ever worked with. I used him to help me find a rental property while I was moving to Texas. He asked for our specific needs and showed us rental homes that met our criteria. We had only one weekend to finalize our decision, and he worked with us to quickly get it done under our timeline. Then, he stayed in touch with us and showed us several homes for purchase or build as we moved out of renting and into ownership. After finding the area we wanted to live in (North Austin Area) he showed us some potential new home builds that met all our needs and wants. I did not think I was going to need Jack much after that because we decided on a new home build but I was wrong. Jack ran interference on any issues we had with the salesperson and helped review some of the builder's paperwork to make sure we understood the entire process. We ended up living in the home of our dreams. I do not think we would have found this home without Jack's realtor expertise in the market, Austin area, and Texas regulations. Since then, we referred him to our parents to use and he worked hard to make sure their dream list for the home was met. They moved into their new home last December. Jack did a stand-up job for them as well. So, both my parents and I referred him to my brother. He is just starting to work with him, but we are confident he will do a great job again. The market is tough right now and knowing you have a realtor that will go above and beyond is so important to find the home of your dreams. I would use Jack again if we ever decided to move and give him five stars as a realtor."

"My wife and I had the pleasure of working with Jack Shanley when searching for a new home to rent when our lease expired in our condo in downtown Austin. We were looking to find a home with more space as well as a yard for our two small dogs. From the moment we reached out to Jack regarding a property we found on Zillow, he was incredibly easy to work with. We had a pretty tight timeline and Jack worked hard to help us move through the process quickly. He was responsive to all of our (many) questions and made sure we were comfortable every step of the way. He genuinely cared that we were taken care of.  We are extremely happy we were able to work with Jack and hope we have an opportunity to do so again in the future! Thanks again Jack!"

"Worked with Jack Shanley to purchase my house and then lease it. Jack is an excellent realtor. He takes time to research, spend time with clients, and understands the needs of the customer very well. He has a lot patience. He is thorough in his work and an excellent person to work with. I would recommend him to anyone looking for a sincere, hardworking realtor who knows his area very well."

"Jack was outstanding! We looked at 20 homes in two days and we found one we love. We were new to Austin and Jack's advice and expertise, as well as his help getting us across the finish line, was invaluable, its a beauty!"

"Jack Shanley guided me to find the perfect house. There were many homes that Jack could have easily sold to me, but he pointed out why they weren't a great value. He steered me to a well-constructed home in a safe area, that would be a wise investment. We bid on many houses. He worked all hours to give me a shot at each one. He worked gracefully with all kinds of flakey agents and sellers. He always remembered to have my earnest money returned to me promptly. He is committed to the long-term happiness of his clients."
Angela Smiley
"We moved here from Illinois and the home buying process is a little different here. Jack was always there when we needed him and made us comfortable with the process. He worked late several nights without us even scheduling prior to that weekend.  He helped even after the closing.I have some family planning on moving here over the next year and I will refer them to Jack to help them with their home buying needs. Jack and JBGoodwin help make our first home buying experience in Texas great.  "
