<b>Message to the renters of Austin</b><br> It's kinda crazy how this service is free. We bring you value by sharing our knowledge of the leasing process and the ever-changing market. Since prices are controlled by software algorithms at most communities, they rise and fall daily. Same goes for rent specials. We crowd-source these deals internally and are able to offer them to you so you don't lose any sleep wondering if you got the absolute best deal or not. Then, we advocate for your best interests at the community of your choice to ensure you're locked in to the BEST unit they have...not the unit they want to get off the books.

Because I got out of my truck and walked to where the police were and I had called myself in, I ended up getting away with it!)

<b>Message to the renters of Austin</b><br> I understand that many people may not have the time or resources to find an apartment in the Austin area. Don't let Jeff Goldblum fool you, the major apartment websites aren't always accurate and up to date. Pricing, availability and rent specials change daily for most apartment communities, so we obtain information directly from each complex to provide you with accurate information on the newest move-in specials along with pricing and availability. The best part about my job is providing this service for FREE and being able to help someone find the best deal on an apartment.

The culmination of his skill has lead to a simple goal: Sal wants his name to be synonymous with “sold” in ATX, by listening to YOUR needs and finding YOUR future home. 

An Austinite for the past 10 years, Sal has seen the rise of a thriving new community and welcomes it with excitement. He has his ear to the ground on all of Austins sexiest restaurants, hippest clubs, and has decided to share his stomping grounds in guiding newcomers and old souls alike.

A Fort Worth native, Sal is a boxing and olympic weightlifting enthusiast. Receiving numerous state/college medals in powerlifting and weightlifting alike, he tackles the Austin real estate juggernaut with just as much vigor.
