Client Testimonials

"Simply the Best!! I met Jason in 2002 and he has helped me with various Real Estate needs over the years. He was very knowledgeable in my earlier years when it came to leasing and helped me with my first  apartment. Over the years I have had the pleasure of being part of several transactions with Jason. He is very easy to work and I can always count on him to stay on top of things. I recently did a transaction with Jason and it could not have gone any more smoothly. We closed on time and everyone was happy. I have recommended Jason to many family and friends over the years and he has been a great asset."

"I was looking for a home when I was relocated to Austin. Jason listened to my needs and helped to find the perfect home. He is very knowledgeable about the area and knew where to look for homes in my price range. I appreciated his "no pressure" approach. Since I was new to the area, Jason also helped me get in touch with someone to help with the financing end. 

I highly recommend him to anyone looking to purchase a home. I will use him again when I am ready to sell this property and purchase another one."

"Jason helped me to buy my first house in Austin. I had to move to Austin because of my job. Buying a house while relocating was a very stressful process. He is very knowlegable with the area and answered our questions about the neighborhood and schools. He explained in detail what the inspection list was about. He also climbed to the attic with me to explain where the issue was and made sure I understand. Jason also has a great humor, he is very cool to work with. Since we were relocating while buying the house, we really needed an agent who can respond quickly and move things fast. Jason responded very quickly and we really appreciate that! He also has great connections! Jason really represented us very well and I definitely recommend him as a realtor!"

"Mr. Bernknopf is exactly what I was looking for in a realtor - friendly, fun to work with, professional, and knowledgeable.  Jason has helped me multiple times.  As others on here have stated, he is easy to work with and never pressures you into making a quick decision or seeing houses that you are not interested in.  In working with Jason over several months, I found that I could call him anytime - day or night - and he would make himself available (even once while he was in a wedding in NY City).  

Additionally, Jason knows the Austin market better than any other agent I have worked with.  My wife and I had a large set of criteria in buying our new house and Jason was able to quickly pinpoint the areas that would meet our needs.  He knew the pros and cons of each area and helped us navigate the Austin market.  I would highly recommend Jason to anyone looking to buy or sell a home."

"Jason helped me locate and buy my first home. After taking time to show me many that were available in my area and price range we found the perfect one. Many of my friends and family warned me of the nightmares involved with buying a home, but Jason went out of his way to make sure my buying experience was great! I plan to use his services again when the need comes around. Thank you very much Jason!"

"Jason helped us purchase our first home last year. He was extremely knowledgeable about the various neighborhoods we were interested in, and was very patient as we looked at 20 or 30 houses to help narrow down the features we were seeking in a first home. He was also very knowledgeable about the construction process and gave us lots of great insights into which homes were well made, and how easy or difficult it would be for us to change specific features within various homes. Best of all, he was very honest with us, giving us great feedback on whether he thought a particular house was well priced or met our needs. He never tried to sell us on any house, but also seemed to know when we had found "the one." I would highly recommend Jason for anyone's real estate needs."

"Jason is AMAZING. 

He was great about asking the right questions to find out what we wanted. He was very communicative and available whenever we needed him. He also made sure to show up great houses. He has a lot of insights on areas, prices, neighborhoods, etc that came in handy. 

One of the biggest assets he could provide though was insight into the costs associated with new homes. He was in the process of building a house himself, and as we looked through homes and pointed out things that we would want to update, he could tell us approximately how much each update would be. As we planned our offers and our budget, that insight was invaluable, and helped us walk away from several houses that would be more than we could manage. 

He knows his stuff when it comes to post-search things as well. We had a few minor issues come up during closing because either the bank or the other person's Realtor was wrong. Jason found it, and coordinated any issues so that we had one of the smoothest closings I've ever heard of. 

We ended up with an absolutely gorgeous house even closer to our ideal neighborhood than we'd hoped (with a pool!) for $20,000 less than every other house on the market in our specs. We couldn't be luckier, and a huge part of that was Jason being at the right place, at the right time, knowing his stuff, and moving quickly. 

Jason is the best Realtor I've heard of, and I'd recommend him to anyone."

"Jason provided great personal service in helping my son and me come in from out of state to find a condominium for my son to buy and live in during his graduate school years in Austin.  We told Jason what my son needed and he developed a list of properties to see in several Austin neighborhoods.  Jason drove us to several of the properties on a Friday morning and we found a condo on which we made an offer, there was a little back-and-forth, and an offer was accepted that weekend.  Jason knew the market, listened to what we said we needed, and found a place that met our needs, with which my son has been happy."

"My husband and I have used Jason for four real estate sales and purchases over the last ten years in Austin, personal as well as investment properties. He's super easy going, but can do some serious negotiation when necessary. He has a great vision for renovations; someone you'd want to have on your side if you plan to make changes that have impact. I'd highly recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell a home."

- Maggie A.

"Jason helped us purchase our Austin home in 2011, and spent a week with us showing homes from all parts of town. We had a small window (one week) to find a home and Jason went above our expectations by seeing homes before we arrived so he knew if they would meet our needs. He was able to narrow down our search and helped us find our dream home! I would definitely recommend Jason if you're looking for a realtor in Austin. He's patient, but helps negotiate a great deal and will give you his honest opinion on your choices."

- Jen M.

"Jason was awesome.  I'd consider us to be on the picky side and he never got frustrated with us and continued to send us listing after listing until we found a house we liked.  He kept us away from the bad houses but didn't try to keep us from seeing anything we wanted or pressure us in to anything.

In addition, Jason has been great since purchasing our home.  I still email him a few times a year with random questions and I always get a response or even a phone call almost right away.

I've recommended Jason to many of our friends and would definitely use him again."

- Pete S.

"My wife and I decided to buy a house in February of 2013 and we selected Jason Bernknopf as our realtor because he was highly recommended.  

First off, Jason is always available which is very important when you are trying to purchase a home.  He is also very personable, professional and he made us feel at ease through the whole home buying process.   Every question we had he was confidently able to answer or get the answer, explain it in detail, and then follow up to make sure we were satisfied.

Jason has a lot of experience, knows the city very well and is always on top of the latest trends in real estate.  When we decided to look for a home he was able to determine exactly what we were looking for and showed us a variety of different properties that matched our desires.  

When we found a home we really liked he wasted no time in getting a contracted presented to the seller giving us the best opportunity in a strong sellers market. He was very detailed in every aspect of the process and his guidance was outstanding.

I will never use another realtor again and would not hesitate one second to recommend him to all of my friends and family."

- Bill H.

"Jason was amazing during our first home buying experience. The market was very competitive at the time so as soon as a house was listed, we'd call up Jason (if he didn't   beat us to it) and we'd rush over to take a look. In my naïveté and excitement, I wanted to buy every dilapidated house on every corner. Fortunately, Jason has been around the block a few times and would point out the cracks in the walls or the unruly neighbors and gently bring me to my senses. It was immediately clear that he was not looking for a quick sell, but truly wanted to see my husband and I get the right house for us. When we found the perfect house, there was no hesitation. Jason worked as quickly as humanly possible to get the sellers our best offer and paperwork. He even managed to persuade them to immediately take our offer rather than waiting for the end of the day. We absolutely love our new house and we couldn't have been in better hands."

- Chelsea W.

"Jason was an amazing realtor.  We bought our house through him in August 2012.  We were very indecisive about what we wanted and where we wanted to live.  Jason took the time to show us over 40 houses.  He would give us his honest opinion.  We did not know the area very well, so we really counted on his expertise.  We bought a great house for a great price with his help.  Since then we have expanded our family and will be looking for some more space.  We'll be turning to Jason to help sell our house and find us a new one!"
