Wesley was born on a thunderous night in Frankfurt, Germany many moons ago. As a military brat, he had the opportunity to travel to a wide range of places, which allowed him to develop an appreciation for different cultures (and an insatiable craving for bratwurst). Wes became increasingly involved in the performing arts, hosting the International Film Channel Trivia game show, performing alongside the Chinese acrobats at the California State Fair, and writing and producing several plays. After receiving his bachelor's degree, his band signed a recording deal with Warner Brothers and he returned to Europe to record, tour, and practice his not-very-convincing English accent.
Wes eventually settled in Sacramento, CA where he opened a performance art venue and was commissioned to write several musicals for public theaters and private art schools, in addition to directing an after-school arts program. After a fateful visit to Austin, the cultural richness and spirit of the city captured him and he decided it was time for a new chapter. (Realizing he could magically get a house 5x bigger for the same price didn’t hurt much, either.)
Since arriving in Austin, Wes has composed music for film, video games, and commercials for various corporations such as Scrabble, Walmart, and Sandisk. In order to explore the city more, he joined a popular cover band which performs at corporate events, Spurs halftime shows, clubs, and weddings around Texas.
When Wes began to research the purchase of a second home, a passion in real estate was born. What better way to satiate his need to learn something new every day, see beautiful places, talk with inspired people, and be part of a powerful time in others’ lives? Few things compare with the rewards and fun of being able to help others "set the stage" for the next phase of their life.
Bringing together his multitude of diverse experiences, Wesley believes finding a home is one of the most crucial and defining moments in an individual or growing family's life and is honored to help others find the perfect nest to start the next phase of their life.

I worked with Wesley Steck for the past few years, he's a phenomenal agent! I stumbled upon him when I was desperately seeking an apartment back in 2015 and I only had 2 weeks left to move. Within 3 days of searching, I had an apartment. He's been my go-to all these years and I don't know what I would have done without his help. This guy is highly efficient, friendly, compassionate, personable, and resourceful!!! Customer service is through the roof! I won't go to anyone else. Highly recommend seeking Wesley Steck out, especially in the current housing climate. Happy hunting, and don't forget to take Wesley along for the help...you'll need him right now. – Claya P.

Wes is absolutely amazing. The best realtor I've ever worked with by far. I've already recommended him to about 6 or 7 people.

If I ever move back to Austin, I will 100% use Wes again. – William Labanowski

We worked with Wesley Steck when moving from AZ to TX. We had a tough situation because we have a beloved pit bull and struggled to find anyone willing to rent to us. Wes did all of the leg work and lined up showings for us on the weekend we flew out. He worked really hard to get us into a great rental. 2 years later, we were ready to purchase a home, and once again, Wes was incredible. He was instrumental in helping us to navigate some issues with the home that needed to be fixed prior to closing and helped us to negotiate repairs with the sellers. Wes is extremely responsive and thorough. He isn't going to just drive you around and open a lockbox. He's going to advise through every step of the process and make sure you get a great deal on a quality home. I would absolutely work with him again! – Emily LaRusch

We have rented all of our units in Austin through JB Goodwin's stellar agent, Wesley Steck, for several years now.
