Being born and raised in Austin, Texas has allowed me to watch this great city grow and change tremendously. I spent 9 years working for the Westlake Fire Department while growing my home remodeling company, Modern Expressions LLC. Since 2000, I have bought, remodeled, invested in and sold numerous homes in Austin, Texas.
Prior to joining the team at JB Goodwin, my wife and I spent a year and a half in Costa Rica learning the culture, language and traveling parts of Central America.
Being a young entrepreneur, with a passion and great understanding for real estate, I am dedicated to providing past, present and future clients with the respect and service they deserve. I pride myself on building a company based on honesty, dependability, integrity, efficiency and most importantly hard work. Clients always come first!
I know a great deal about Austin and I look forward to sharing it with you. I look forward to assisting you with your real estate needs now and in the future whether it's buying, selling, investing or leasing property, I AM HERE FOR YOU!
I just want to say thank you for everything you've done for us! We couldn't have asked for a better realtor! You really listened to what we were looking for and knew how to help a couple of confused first time home buyers. :) I love that you are so knowledgeable and were willing to do what it took to find the perfect home for us (which we are soooo excited to move into!) You really were able to answer all of our questions, whether it be about the construction of the home or the financial aspects. You have been so trustworthy and dependable, by offering your honest opinion and always being available when we needed you. You truly were the best realtor for us and met all of our needs as first time home buyers. I have already been raving about you to everyone I know and will be recommending you to anyone who needs a realtor! Thanks again, Trent! – Shelly Braden
I rarely write reviews for services I receive, typically because you rarely find someone worth writing a good review for. Trent Koenings is an exception to that. Trent was the definition of professional from day one or our relationship. His knowledge of the local housing market would be hard if not impossible to match. Being from Austin his entire life, Trent knows the area�s of Austin better than most other realtors in the Austin market. Trent rarely will sugar coat things, he tells it like it is and you know exactly what to expect when you go into any situation with him at your side. He provided a great level of security and confidence to a client who is very unfamiliar with the real estate world. Trent made sure that I understood and was comfortable with every decision I had to make throughout the process. Many times in real estate you can feel that your agent is only in it for their piece of the pie, but with Trent, you genuinely get a feeling that he couldn't care less about making a dime if he thinks that your best interests are not being taken care of FIRST. I would HIGHLY recommend Trent Koenings to any of my family or friends who are looking to sell or buy a house in the Austin area. I know he is someone who can be trusted and will keep the best interest of his clients in mind from the first handshake to the last. – Tres
Trent is a first-rate, service minded, agent through and through. We contacted Trent through a referral when the idea of buying a home was "just an idea". Just the thought of going through the whole process of buying a home was overwhelming to us and kept us up at night. He assured us that as long as we get a plan together, everything would work out.
Well, it did. At every step of the process, Trent made himself available to explain the unknowns, address the unexpected, and guide us through what seemed like a never ending jungle of challenges and decisions into the perfect home for us. Being accessible and knowledgeable is what separates Trent from many so-called "professionals". Your needs are his priority. He educated, equipped, and empowered us to owning every single decision along the way. One final note to add, Trent was at our closing. It was a small touch but an important one. If you've ever purchased or sold real estate and your agent was not at the closing, you might ask yourself if you actually got the best service available or just someone to hold and wave the flag.
Thanks to Trent, we are in the home that we wanted to live, for the price that we wanted to pay, in the location we wanted to be! – Chris & Sammy
I just wanted to thank Trent Koenings so much for going above and way beyond to get my house sold. Before even putting the property on the market he helped me do some repairs to avoid any red flags from the home inspector when that time came. I truly believe there's not a realtor as knowledgeable and as passionate for his job in the Austin area as Trent.
I also really appreciated how well he communicated with me through out the entire process. He was very easy to get a hold of and answered all of my questions, addressed my concerns, and never kept me in the dark.
When it's time for me to buy or sell again there's no question I will be giving Trent a call! – Curtis Vacek
As I began my search for a home, I knew that I wanted to work with an agent that had experience with first time buyers as well as had worked with investors. Being a first time buyer in Austin, I was referred to Trent and J.B. Goodwin through a Dallas broker, and I must say it was a great recommendation!
During our first meeting, Trent, made a great impression on me. First, he was very knowledgeable of the different areas and neighborhoods both in Austin and the surrounding areas. He was able to understand what I was looking for, and tailor our search based on the criteria I provided. Having worked with investors, he was also able to educate, advise and highlight the features of different listings that would make it a possible investment property. He never took me to listings that were outside of my criteria, and I never got the "sales pitch" feeling you might find in other Realtors. Trent was very responsive to my requests, and always followed through on action items. Once we were in negotiations, Trent was able to leverage his knowledge and experience of the market to make it as painless as possible as well as make sure the seller met all of our requests. As we worked with the seller to get repairs completed, he was in constant communication with me to keep me informed and made sure we were on schedule to close. While working with the lender, Trent, kept the needle moving and continued to be an advocate for me.
After closing, Trent, continued to follow up with me to make sure the transition was seamless and any post sale needs were met. I would highly recommend Trent as a realtor and a real estate adviser! I look forward to working with Trent again on my next real estate investment! – Kyle Bryan
