Jeff and I grew up in an era when talking about your accomplishments was considered bragging and it was a trait that was frowned upon. In this age of surfing, googling, tweeting, face booking, blogging & linking in, consumers want to know who they are trusting with their business. So the uncomfortable becomes the necessary, here goes...
I am a native Texan who moved to Austin over 43 years ago. I enjoy reminiscing with Austinites about what Austin used to be like in the 70's but am passionate about what Austin has become and will continue to evolve into. My background is in education, and after teaching for 14 years it was time for a new chapter in my life. I went back to school and got my real estate license and joined JB Goodwin in 2000. Jeff is originally from Brighton, England. Well, Hove Actually. He transferred here in 2007 with Applied Materials as a mechanical engineer and I was part of his relocation package. In 2008 we married and joined forces to become one of the most successful husband and wife teams in the city. We have made a conscious decision to keep our team as just the 2 of us in an effort to provide the best possible, personal customer service to our clients. We personally walk through the entire real estate transaction with our clients never handing them off to another party after they sign on to work with us. We have helped over 723 families buy, sell and lease homes with over $218 million in production. We specialize in relocation and have sold homes from Georgetown to San Marcos, Dripping Springs to Lakeway and absolutely everywhere in between. It doesn't matter if you are looking for a cottage or a castle we will do everything in our power to help you.
Outside of the office, we find the most joy experiencing Austin with our English Setters, Rosie & Duke. We are dog park junkies, nature trail adventurers and dog friendly patio people. Golf is another one of our favorite hobbies we enjoy with family and friends, but we don't play enough to excel. We love Austin and try to experience all that it has to offer, which our clients have found to be an invaluable resource when they relocate here.
Please let us know if there is anything we can do to help you as you consider your next move or investment.

Jeff and Tish were highly professional, knowledgeable and effective agents. They helped get our home sold in a single day and worked with us on finding help with the necessary repairs. I highly recommend them as agents.” ~ Rick Martin
We had a really wonderful experience working with Tish. We were moving from Minneapolis. She spent the time to show us many interesting Austin neighborhoods that matched our needs. She is extremely knowledgeable and observant. She even pointed out flaws that we needed to be aware of but were not noticing at first. She was also extremely patient as we tinkered with our requirements as we tried to adapt from our Minneapolis home to Austin. We finally did end up finding a house that exceeded our expectations. I would strongly recommend Tish for your home buying.” ~ Jayapal Parakkuth
Tish Darey was AMAZING during our relocation. She provided us with a binder with tons of tips, and so I could take notes. She was so kind and pleasant. She is top-notch and would work with her again!” ~ Icel Cueva
Tish is the best! She was thorough and professional and great to work with. She kept us apprised about available properties and always let us know as soon as a new one came on the market. As first-time home buyers, we enjoyed working with Tish because she took the time to explain everything to us and answered all of our questions. In a difficult housing market, she helped us find the perfect home and we feel lucky to have found her.” ~ Jim Craig
“We've worked with Tish and Jeff Darey for several years and just purchased our 3rd home with them. We can't say enough about how great they are to work with - attentive, professional, fun, and extremely experienced with the market. They are truly a Dream Team and we've been so fortunate to have them on OUR team!” ~ Holly Bowen
“We have engaged the Darey team several times for both buying and selling our homes and the experiences have been outstanding. The team combines their deep knowledge of the market and extensive experience with a caring and thoughtful approach. Our desires and concerns were addressed in an expertly executed marketing campaign that they managed from start to finish resulting in a timely, efficient, and outstanding result. We could not be happier with the process and results. ” ~ Woody & Robin Endsley
“Tish and Jeff Darey could not have been a better team to work with. Their top-notch knowledge and responsiveness paled in comparison to their patience and kindness. We couldn't have chosen a better team to handle this sale.” ~ Acaire Holdings
“Tish was fantastic and helped a complicated process go smoothly for first time home owners.” ~ David Hill
“Tish Darey did a fabulous job of working with us to list and sell our house!! We’ve worked with her before and will look to her in the future if we need to buy or sell another property in the area!!” ~ Karen Delle
“Tish has been the best realtor we have worked with. She was attentive and detail oriented. She gave us good information about the areas we were looking for houses. Tish took her time with us and we never felt rushed when looking at houses. She was present at closing and helpful. She even brought us a gift and some things for our boys. Then she came back after closing to look at Floor samples we will have installed. I have already recommended her several times and on our neighborhood Facebook page. I hope we don't move for a long time but if we do, I will absolutely call Tish to sell our home.” ~ Erin Bendlin
“Tish and Jeff were wonderful to work with. Great marketing strategy, our house sold quickly!” ~ Jacqueline Clinton
“Tish and Jeff Darey are amazing! Tish is the only agent I've used in almost ten years. She's helped me find at least three rental properties and she sold my home for me.” ~ Jody Koehler
“Tish and I hit it off right away. I could tell she was an experienced, professional, and motivated agent who LISTENED and wouldn’t waste time with non-starters. I was determined to be the ideal client – always doing my homework, being reasonable, and providing continuous feedback so she could hone in on the right property.
It happened just as I hoped. After showing me roughly 30 properties in 2 days, we went back and revisited the 6 wonderful properties I liked best. In fact, we discovered the ideal one by accident, on the way to make an offer on another property I liked. While one could say luck played a factor, Tish and I MADE OUR LUCK using diligence and best practices. Tish recommended I “sleep” on the other property the day before (but I was still interested the next day). Thank heaven she did that!
On the way to my chosen place, she passed a sign for Wilde Wood. You couldn’t even see the house from the street. Tish commented that she liked the builder and asked if I wanted to stop. Though greatly fatigued I figured why not. It turned out to be the best of the bunch. I didn’t need to sleep on that one, though we did go to the previous best candidate to make sure. I have had not one second of buyer’s remorse. No property is perfect, but this place is a dream come true. Tish and I never exchanged a discouraging word the whole time we worked together. We were on the same wavelength from the beginning. She did everything she could to assist me but never imposed her own view unless she felt I was overlooking something important.
I give Tish my HIGHEST RECOMMENDATION.” ~ Larry Cohen
“Tish and Jeff, are very knowledgeable in the Austin area. We are relocating to Austin, Tish worked with us patiently for almost a year until we sold our house in Dallas and found the perfect home in Austin. She didn't mind working with us over the Christmas holiday to complete the offer and the inspection phase. She was instrumental in introducing us to Austin in general and to educating us on how to assess our options. She guided us through this process all the way to a successful and a quick closing. She has unwavering integrity, very responsive and very patient. We highly recommend her as the best real estate we met!” ~ Nancy & Hany Fares
“We recently moved here from Colorado and Tish helped us find the perfect home for our family. She was extremely knowledgeable and very informative about the area and the complicated process of relocating. She is very professional. We would highly recommend Tish and Jeff and will definitely use them in the future. They are wonderful!!” ~ Shannon & Randy Miskol
“While I met both Tish and Jeff, I worked more closely with Tish and I was beyond pleased. She was extremely knowledgeable about the market in our area and gave solid recommendations that turned out to be perfect. She was energetic, professional and a delight to be around. I would recommend Tish and Jeff for anyone who needs to sell or buy a home. You won't be disappointed!” ~ Karla Johns
“Tish and Jeff helped us sell our home and buy a new one in a very hot market. She began preparing us as we got the old home ready to sell and gave excellent advice about where to invest our dollars for the best return. It sold in less than 24 hours! Then she helped us navigate the process of finding a new home, negotiating on both contracts, and finally settling the deals at closing. I would not do this again without them.” ~ Kimberly Brooks
“I just don't even know where to start! I knew that I had found the perfect agent when we first spoke on the phone. Your interest in our family, our lifestyle, our friends and our desires were only the beginning. Your enthusiasm and excitement about Austin and your fine sense of direction made our relocation trip UNFORGETTABLE! Your determination in finding our perfect dream home, whether it meant going to EVERY NEIGHBORHOOD in Williamson County, doing endless searches on the Internet, negotiating contracts in our absence and spending time away from your family is just unbelievable! We are sincerely grateful for everything that you did and continue to do for us. You are the REAL ESTATE QUEEN with PHENOMENAL CUSTOMER SERVICE! We have already told all of our friends who are threatening to move to Austin that they can not even attempt the home search without YOU!” ~ Lisa Begnaud
“We recently sold our home at 1604 Remuda Circle and purchased a new home in Round Rock. Tish Darey was our realtor and I want you to know that she is an outstanding agent. Tish worked long hours well into the night on advertising and flyers to promote our previous home. She was always available to take my calls and offer suggestions to increase traffic. After getting a contract on our house Tish spent several days driving us around neighborhoods and showing us homes. She was always cheerful and very professional each time. Our closing on our new home went very smoothly and she even hand-delivered a check to the mortgage company so we could close on Friday instead of waiting until Monday. We will highly recommend her to our friends for all of their real estate transactions. She is a true asset to the JB Goodwin Company.” ~ Tim and Annamaria Houston
“We arrived on Thursday night and spent all day Friday and Saturday with Tish. I can't say enough good things about Tish. She was fantastic. Our priority was finding a good school for our children. Housing was secondary. Tish did a wonderful job in both areas and by the end of Friday we had our minds made up.” ~ Vincent Villamizar
“Considerate, hardworking, and trustworthy are the three words that come to my mind when I think of Tish. I can't list the many times that she went beyond way beyond what I expected from our realtor. When it came time to close on our new house, I knew that one of the reasons I was so excited to make this move was because of the personal attention I received from Tish Fenley. I would highly recommend her services to anyone moving to the area and would consider them lucky to work with such a consummate professional.” ~ Amy Smith
