Austin has the advantage of a big city, but is friendly like a small town. If you are new to Austin I know you will love it too. If you are already here – I know you feel the same way I do. This is home and it doesn’t get any better than this.
I was born and raised in Seattle, Washington, and have lived in Austin for the last 15 years. I moved to Austin to pursue a new career. I love to volunteer and help out in community projects, and recently adopted a Red Heeler, Jax, from the Austin Animal Shelter. My hobbies include International travel, Landscape design, working out and experience all Austin has to offer on the weekends.
My career has had a winding path; running two small businesses as an entrepreneur, supervised a grocery retail team for a food broker for several years and then worked for a local software company as a Director/Senior Account Executive.
I've always had an interest in Real Estate, which has come full circle in my career as a Realtor. I’m excited about the opportunity to continue providing service to the public and to help bring people’s lifestyle dreams and home ownership to reality. My goal is to provide my clients with professional, courteous and loyal service for all their Real Estate needs. I will always have your best interest in mind and I will work tirelessly to try and get you what you want.
As a Realtor and a member of the JBGoodwin Team, I look forward to assisting you with your Real Estate needs, including Buying, Selling and Residential and Apartment Leasing.
Scott is a gem! My husband and I by coincidence met Scott Wahl at a model home. 11 months and two houses later we still pinch ourselves. Any questions, minor or major, he always gets us the answer. Scott interfaced directly with contractors and inspectors, as we were out of state, and brought any issues to our attention. Scott's attention to detail is admirable. Buying a house can be an emotional affair, and having a level-headed Scott on your side is a blessing. Scott is a superb real estate agent. Do not hesitate if you get the chance to have Scott as your realtor. – Britt Pedersen
Beside just being the most genuinely nice realtor you'll meet, he's an endless fountain of knowledge of the Austin area. Extremely patient and I never felt like I was being "sold," at any point. It's hard to find a realtor that seems like they love what they do entirely. Scott is that. There's not a move that isn't calculated in the buying or selling process. He gives rock-solid info for you to make your best and most efficient decision. He found a gem and we acted quick enough to be purchasing WITH equity AT asking in an extremely volatile market. I'll never call another realtor besides him. – Travis O.
Scott is amazing! He was patient, thorough, and so knowledgeable. We moved from out of state and Scott was always happy to host a virtual showing and offer clear guidance on crafting strong offers. He absolutely went above and beyond throughout our entire process and we are thrilled to have found our dream home. I would recommend him to anyone and will absolutely work with him in the future. – Jenny S.
Scott is an amazing realtor. He was always very responsive and listened to what we were looking for. He quickly identified properties that matched what we were looking for. He was always straightforward with suggestions as well. When we need it we will definitely love to work with him again! – Jaclyn Ashby
Scott was a phenomenal help to me during the process of finding and purchasing my new home. His knowledge, guidance, and advocacy representing my interests in interacting with my builder saved me from making many missteps along the way. I'm extremely grateful that he was with me on this journey and would advise anyone who is looking to buy or sell a home to reach out to him! – Marcus O.
A year and a half ago, Scott started helping us look for a house after we were referred to him by friends. We changed our minds, we changed the areas, we changed the cost, we took this poor man up and down and all over the place. And finally, last month, we closed on our dream house. Scott never stopped working for us - all times of day and night, when we had questions that we probably could have just googled, when we wanted to look at houses all the way in Leander, San Marcos and Blanco. I could not imagine a more perfect person to have gone on this adventure with, and I'm genuinely almost a little sad it is over because we also truly enjoyed the time we spent with Scott. Even though we had a couple of hiccups throughout our home buying experience, Scott always kept so calm and positive. We are so glad that we had Scott along with us every step of the way, and are so happy to have also made such an amazing friend. – Rachel K.
Scott was awesome!! Very attentive. Very knowledgeable. Great to work with. – Susan Mallari
Scott was knowledgable and hardworking. He would often answer any questions and work after hours to make sure all questions were answered and to ensure that we got the home we wanted. Thanks Scott! – Michael Poirier
Scott was recommended by friends and turned out to be an awesome recommendation. My partner and I were looking for a new home and had several ideas, we wanted to look at and start narrowing down properties. Scott set it up viewings and got us in the door. We had lots of questions and Scott was always available to answer them. Even though the sale has closed, Scott no longer has a requirement to meet or follow through with our needs and questions, but he does! Scott was our Real Estate agent then but will be again in the future but he's also a friend now. Don't just look at my recommendation make him your agent! – Joe L.
Scott was very on top of the entire process and everything ran very smoothly. – Karen Clary
I cannot say enough good things about Scott. My wife and I closed on our house a little over a week ago and we love it. We were referred to Scott by one of my wife's coworkers and a local broker, and he truly made the process of buying our first house fun and exciting instead of stressful and overwhelming.
He knows a ton about houses (both old houses and new construction), loans and escrow accounts, and everything in between. I'm pretty sure he knows someone who can do literally anything you could ever want done to your house, and is known for pulling out a business card for a local business at the drop of a hat (my last request was a custom shutter for a bathroom window).
He was patient when we were indecisive, patient when the closing took forever because we had never done one, and always willing to go to bat for us with our builder, inspectors, and mortgage company. We would definitely recommend him for anyone looking to buy property, and we'll definitely use him if we ever buy more in the future. – Ginger Y.
Scott helped us find a beautiful home during the holidays. It is not an easy time to search for a new home but Scott's dedication to finding us the perfect place persevered. He is an excellent communicator and kept us updated through every step of our process. He's friendly, caring and his integrity and professionalism shine through! Working with Scott made leasing our new home a joy. – Tracy C.
I am a real estate investor and Scott has helped me with not only finding the right property but also meeting my appraisers, contractors, inspection guy, etc.. I don't have the time to be at the properties so Scott does it all; he goes beyond his realtor's duties. I have also started using him to find tenants for all my rentals and again he is always present at my properties whenever I need him. I love his patience, his commitment and his prompt responses via email and phone calls. I am very satisfied with his services. – JD
My wife and I were looking to buy our first home in May 2016. We initially wanted to buy a home in Cedar Park/Round Rock area and Scott showed us all of the possibilities that fit within our budget. Due to work, I had to move to the Lakeway/Bee Cave area and we ended up purchasing a new construction home. At this point in time, any other real estate agent would cash in and you would probably never see them again, or even get a return phone call. This is where Scott differs from the rest! He knew that we were first time home buyers and worked with us through the design center process, construction, mortgage application, inspection the whole nine yards! He was very responsive to our calls/texts/emails, and always took the extra time to explain things we didn't understand. We just closed on our house a couple days ago (9 months after we put down our deposit on the house), and he was there with us at closing! Bottom line, Scott will always look out for your best interest and stand up for you when home builders start to get pushy to meet deadlines. My only realtor from here on out! Allen M. – Allen M.
My fiancé and I first met Scott when we found a townhouse on Zillow that he was showing. Although that particular townhouse wasn't right for us, Scott spent so much time working with us to find just the right house to rent in such a great location. We were SO grateful to have him on our side especially when the leasing company (different from JB Goodwin ) we had to work with to rent the house was so difficult. Scott made it effortless for us. He took our price range and specific requirements into account when showing us homes so it was done efficiently. Scott was such a personable, honest realtor and genuinely kind person. We hope we will be in a position to buy a home in Austin soon and when we do we will make sure to contact Scott Wahl at JB Goodwin Realtor! Thank you Scott for everything! – Mari
I worked with Scott for both the sale of my house and the purchase of my new house. He was extremely helpful with the entire process for both homes. He worked quickly to get my house listed and sold. He worked with the builder of my new house to negotiate additional incentives I was originally told I wasn't getting, Provided contacts for inspections, attended all the walk-throughs, and answered all the questions I had along the way. Scott is honest and really good at his job! He responds quickly to emails, calls and texts and advocates on your behalf whenever necessary. I highly recommend Scott! – Carrie S.
My husband, daughter and I moved to Texas almost two years ago, and moved into an apartment as soon as we got here. As we settled in we realized that we needed more space. We were not ready to buy a house, so we planned on renting. We were very nervous about navigating the rental market. Our neighbors who moved out just before we did mentioned using a realtor to find them a house to lease, they could not say enough nice things about Scott. I got Scott’s card and called him to see if he was able to help us. We immediately clicked with Scott and he got right to work showing us homes in our area. He really understood our particular wants and needs in a home. There were some up and downs, but Scott stayed optimistic and never gave up looking for the perfect house for us. We finally found our house and it was even better than we hoped for. Scott is a terrific person, he loves what he does, and is not afraid to go the extra mile or put in extra work or time. We were so happy to work with him and would recommend him to anyone looking to buy or lease a house. Scott thank you for all your hard work, we love our house.
– Julie and Steve
Scott Wahl was extremely helpful and knowledgeable in assisting us with our home search. He was kind and professional. He was able to find the right house for us and was with us every step of the way. We will definitely refer him to our friends and family.
– Alfred & Monica Ibarra
We had the pleasure of working with Scott for both the sale of our condo and the purchase of our house. Scott was understanding of and attentive to our needs, and was genuinely concerned with what we wanted. He was eager to explain the processes of selling and buying a home, and guided us expertly the whole way; every question we had was answered promptly, every concern was addressed quickly. Several times Scott advocated on our behalf, getting us the deal we wanted or the extra service we needed. He drives a hard bargain and we were very glad he was on our team. We would recommend him in a heartbeat. – Kayla F.
In every way, Scott went above and beyond in order to help us navigate the process of buying our first home. Always easy to reach with any and all questions, knowledge of the areas, and willing to put in the work to make buying a home happen. Excellent in every way! – Brian
This is the first review I have ever written and I feel Scott is definitely worth writing about. I was looking for a new house to lease and he gave me several options to look at online with daily updates and would check in with me regularly to see possible interests. After looking for about 2 weeks I decided I wanted to buy instead. He immediately pulled up new listings based off of my new checklist. Its my first house and didn't realize how exhausting the process could be.
Scott was there every step of the way with recommendations for inspectors, giving me great advice on the value and background of the houses, keeping me updated as changes happened and was very patient with all my questions. After a few weeks of searching and 2nd and 3rd visits, I signed for my first house and Scott was there with me. He even provided a binder of the inspections, paperwork and referral directory for all the odds and ends the house may need. Scott is a great guy and has a passion for helping others. He is your best choice in Realtors!

Scott was truly exceptional. I was moving for work and only had 5 days to find a place to stay once I got down into town. Scott met me my second day in town and showed me a wide variety of places. He helped me with everything I was looking for and even things I didn't know they offered down in Austin. He was very helpful and knowledgeable in the area it made moving a lot less stressful for someone who was moving from across the country. Scott was great he even took the time out of his day to show me around and recommended some great places so I could start to enjoy everything Austin has to offer. I would definitely recommend him to anyone who was looking to live down in Austin. – Jonathan Yen
Me and my family want to thank you for all you did for us, since day 1 until I got my family’s home you were on top of each detail. I remember the first day I contacted you and trust me I won’t forget it because you were able to help me out and guide me step by step to fill out the paper work, showed me the house, my wife and kids are happy and this is because what you did. Thank you so much Scott. – David Rivera Lone
Many thanks to you for all the help you have provided us with finding our new home. Ours is a complex move, involving a transition from both across the country and from overseas. You have coordinated our requests professionally and efficiently, even making effort to go beyond what was required. You have provided us with information on the local community, schools, facilities, and services.
The advice you have given to us, throughout the process, is very much appreciated. We are quite satisfied with your professional standards and look forward to working with you again in the future. We will gladly recommend you to others as well.

When my son-in-law got a new job in Austin, he and my daughter realized they would have three weeks to make the move before he started work. There was no way that my daughter could make the trip from Alabama with a one year old and a four year old to look for an apartment. I contacted an apartment locator who helps out my company and she put me in contact with Scott Wahl. He was a life saver! I emailed him on Tuesday and we planned for my husband, daughter-in-law and me to go to Austin the following Saturday. During those five days, Scott tirelessly looked for places for us to look at on Saturday. One of his challenges was a 55 pound dog my daughter and son-in-law own. He called each place to see if they would allow a dog that large and he checked to see if there was an outdoor area close by for the dog. On Saturday we started at 8:00 and while we were out looking a new listing came in. He suggested we go and look at it even though it wasn't in the area where we thought our kids should live. It turned out to be the perfect size, in a quiet area, with an outdoor space, allowed large dogs, had a garage, appliances, and was just seven miles from where our son-in-law would be working! We never would have found this place on our own! The very next Saturday, the kids arrived from Alabama and were able to move right into their new place. Our son-in -law had a week to get his family settled before starting his new job. We can not say how much we appreciate Scott and his great attitude! He is very easy to work with, extremely diligent and patient. My daughter-in law wanted him to help her and our son find a place in Houston! Scott agreed to find an agent for her but she wants one just like him! – Pam
Moving is difficult, but relocating to an area you don't know from three states away is exceptionally challenging. Thankfully, Scott at JBGoodwin was there to help us every step of the way! We had a list of particulars we needed - at the top, a rental that would accept our 60lb dog. Scott worked diligently to find us the perfect place and kept us in the loop for everything we needed to know about our new home and new community. I highly recommend Scott Wahl for any of your real estate needs! I know we will be contacting him when we are ready to purchase our own home. – Stacy
Our realtor, Scott, was awesome in assisting me and my roommate to find our duplex. He answered any questions we had and was great communicating with the realtors of the properties we looked at. I would not hesitate to recommend Scott to any friends, family, or coworkers looking for a new place in Austin. – Tyler
