About Austin TX Realtor® Jim Gilbert
My Family and Faith
Claire (my wife, partner and assistant) and I will have been happily married for 50 years on August 30, 2018. We now live in the Buda & Kyle area, where we bought a new construction home in Buda's StoneRidge subdivision about 2 years ago. Previously, we lived almost 14 years in SW Austin's Sendera community.
Family is important to us! We have three daughters, seven grandsons, a great grandson and three sons-in-law! We have been blessed with many blessings!
Our work in Buda, Kyle and Austin-area real estate is an extension or expression of who we are and where we have come from in our lives. We both grew up in small Texas towns, and have been believers in the Lord Jesus Christ since our childhoods. Our faith in Him has not only shaped who we are, but also how we relate to others.
My Experience and Work History
I have been a REALTOR® in the Austin, Texas area since mid-2005. I specialize in homes and subdivisions in the Buda and Kyle, Texas areas, but have helped my clients sell and purchase new and resale homes all over the Greater Austin area. My buyer clients have purchased new construction homes from builders like David Weekley, D.R. Horton, Lennar, Highland, Grand Haven and Buffington Homes.
Two prior careers as an engineer and pastor helped to shape me as a REALTOR®. In a dozen years as a chemical engineer and process manager with Shell Chemical Co. and Ethyl Corp., I developed skills in solving problems and taking care of the details of projects.
From my almost 23 years as a pastor, I bring a servant’s heart and a genuine love for people ("Serve one another in love.” Galatians 5:13). The principles of God’s Word guide me in my relationships and in my work with my clients. I major on communicating well with my clients, educating them so they can make informed decisions, and helping them through the many steps of the process of buying or selling homes.
Our Work, Motto and Business Aim
Information is important! We maintain an inventory of over 100 featured neighborhood information web pages. Each has an interactive map displaying the current MLS listings of homes for sale, a 7-year table of market values in that neighborhood and more. We seek to update the details year-by-year, and add new pages for additional neighborhoods. This increases what info is available to you, and helps our knowledge of Buda, Kyle & Austin real estate.
Our motto expresses who we are and how we serve our clients: “Experience and Heart ... working together in Austin Real Estate for You!"
Our aim is “to help our clients to achieve their real estate goals with service that is excellent.”
Looking for Partners and Our Promise
Claire and I would count it a privilege to partner with you in your next real estate transaction. We promise to go “the second mile” in serving you.
When you are ready to buy or sell a home in the Austin area, or if you just have a question, please call me at 512.913.1557, or drop me an email at . I would like the opportunity to earn your trust and your business!
