We highly recommend Courtney Unangst and the team at David Brodsky Properties. Courtney and her team assisted us in both buying and selling our Austin home. Courtney is knowledgeable, but what really sets her apart is her ability to relate to her clients. She gets to know you as a person/family/couple, and always remains down to earth and real with you throughout the process, so you can make the best decision for your situation. She will never steer you wrong. Plus she is just a great, genuine person, and lots of fun.

It’s rare to work with someone so exceptional in every single way, but that’s exactly what happened when I met Abbie last year at an open house. My family was from out of town and we needed a realtor we could trust to find our first Austin home. Her genuine, down-to-earth friendliness, intelligence and sweet, upbeat, energetic spirit immediately impressed me. I sensed somebody special and my gut instinct told me she was the one. During the whole time, Abbie handled every detail beautifully, start to finish, top to bottom. From balancing my family’s difficult, long distance schedules with tremendous patience, to always answering all our concerns, criteria and constantly touching base with us, to lining up her entire team for a super smooth closing, she stayed on top everything like a total professional. The moment of truth came when we entered into a multiple/bid offer situation. Abbie coached us through it like a champ, advising us on how to restructure our offer, giving us crucial steps so that we could stand out against the competition. She expertly negotiated on our behalf and her winning game plan paid off; we won the house against 10 other offers!! Abbie, thank you so much for dedicating all your heart into helping my family. We’re grateful you still keep in touch with us and always appreciate your warmest wishes. You truly are a born rockstar and better than the perfect dream.
I had the great pleasure of working with Abbie to buy my first home. We all know how competitive of a marketplace Austin, TX is, and we've heard all of the horror stories of buying a first home. I've told other friends this unprompted: my experience was about as smooth as it possibly gets. Nothing about it was a challenge and I came out of it perfectly happy. Abbie kept me organized throughout the process and was always there when I had a question. When we hit our first and only snag, Abbie jumped on it immediately and reconciled the problem within 24 hours. Beyond being professional, she is very personable and has a comforting personality. Abbie is simply easy to work with, and effective at what she does. I would highly recommend Abbie to anyone looking to buy a home!
Brittney helped us sell our home in the Austin area and relocate to East Texas. She was quick, responsive, and knowledgeable about all aspects of the transactions. She had our interests foremost in mind, but she was able to work with buyers, builders, mortgage, and title stakeholders in a collaborative, seamless manner. She negotiated favorable terms without upsetting the other parties. She used the latest software so that pen-and-ink signatures were kept to a minimum, and this let us do most of the "paperwork" at home in our pajamas. When the snow and ice storm hit Texas this winter, she pressed the process so that we would not miss a critical interest rate lock-in, despite the weather. Just like her native Austin, Brittney rocks!
Courtney is so organized and thorough. We feel confident in Courtney's knowledge and skills. Both selling and buying went smoothly. She was very accessible and responsive. We enjoyed working with Courtney so much the last time we bought a house that it was a no-brainer to call her when it was time to sell and buy another house. Her staging helped our house sell quickly.
Chris & Rachelle R.
We have so enjoyed working with Abbie. She manages to be both very professional and also a warm, fun person to be around. She has been so patient in our home search, applying no pressure, which we appreciate. For instance, due to her efforts and suggestions we prevailed in a multiple-offer situation; when we ultimately elected to pass on the house, she was easygoing and understanding about it, and made the "unbuying" process as easy as possible. She is easy to reach and quickly coordinates visits to listings. She has spent many hours with us and has more than earned our confidence in her.
Elizabeth and David B.
Abbie is delightful to deal with for both selling and purchasing. When she sold one of our rental properties we had a qualified buyer the first weekend. She made the whole process seamless and smooth, from setting up staging and photos, to reviewing/explaining offers, to negotiating inspections and getting us to closing. When we purchased a lot she was on top of everything-- checking comps, researching any information we asked for, lining up people in construction to talk to. The other agents she deals with during the process come to love her, as we have learned through our transactions. She works hard till the job is done and makes the whole process go so smooth that it makes you want to do more and more transactions with her. Abbie truly is great at her job and enjoys helping people find and sell their homes. I would give Abbie 10 stars for her skills and efforts.
Abbie was a great resource and partner throughout the buying process. In particular, during the "offer acceptance to closing" phase she was super helpful in identifying inspectors and contractors - even meeting some I wasn't able to. We then successfully used these bids to negotiate a better price. Abbie was creative both in presenting "differentiators" during a multiple offer situation and then in negotiating the ultimate closing terms.
Although Brittney Heffernan and DBP represented the buyer (I was the seller), I was impressed with how engaged Brittney was and how well she communicated. Brittney is a real professional and was always focused on her client’s best interest.
I had an excellent experience working with David Brodsky! Throughout the process of listing and selling my home and buying a new one, David made sure I was taken care of. In fact, David exceeded my expectations in every way. He got me through 3 house choices before I finally found my perfect home. David was even able to get a backup buyer for my home when the original buyers looked like they might not be able to close the deal. The only additional thing that he could have possibly done is unpack for me!
Brittney went above and beyond expectations. She was professional, personable, and such a huge help. Home buying is an overwhelming and intimidating process. Her knowledge and patience were such a gift. She was an advocate and guide to us as we were constantly making big and important decisions. She made a stressful decision easy and pain free. We could not have found such a dreamy first home without her!
Courtney was amazing and I would recommend her to any first time home buyer. She takes away a lot of the stress during the whole process.
We were very impressed with David and his staff. The whole selling process was easy and we were in communication the entire time about our process. Even though this was our first time working with David, it seemed like we had known him for years. I would recommend David and his team to anyone looking to buy or sell.
Brittney is the best...high energy...solid knowledge of real estate...and the price we got for the house we were selling was well above our expectations! From the moment we went live with the listing, we had our best offer in 48 hours and others fighting to be next in line if the deal fell through...it didn't...despite a pretty demanding buyer from out of state, Brittney smoothed over any rough edges and we walked to our bank with a big, fat check dripping with ink! She definitely rocks Austin real estate!
From day 1, Courtney was an invaluable asset to me in my search for my first home. Her knowledge of the Austin market was deep and she quietly learned my quirks and my taste. Her guidance through the househunt, construction process, and mortgage process was hands-on and comprehensive. Courtney kept me on track and advocated on my behalf to countless people. She's a phenomenal person to have in your corner and I absolutely cannot recommend and thank her enough!
David was amazingly patient with my husband and me while we tried to figure out what home buying strategy worked best for us. His knowledge of the marketplace is invaluable. And, he bent over backwards to provide us with resources and other help while we transitioned from Santa Cruz, CA to ATX.
Working with Lauren at DBP far exceeded my expectations! I was purchasing a small property and ran into a number of hurdles (on my end) in getting to a successful closing. At each and every turn, Lauren was cheerful, helpful, and positive. I highly recommend DBP and will definitely use their services again in the future!
June assisted me in the sale of my condo and I just wanted you to know what an incredible experience this was. She handled every interaction with total professionalism, knowledge, kindness and insight. When I had ideas that were different from hers, she gently steered me in the correct direction and was able to show me her reasoning with research she had pulled regarding my market.
I have bought and sold property before, and have never experienced this type of service with a realtor before. June is kind, charismatic and truly cares about helping people during one of the biggest transactions in their life.
David was easy to work with from the start. He helped make the entire experience positive all the way through to the end. Being a first time home buyer, the process could have felt intimidating, but David's knowledge and character made it enjoyable. David helped us find our dream home in a tough market. Thank you, David!
Courtney ensured everything went extremely smooth. She was so organized. She went above and beyond.
Courtney explained everything thoroughly so we never felt lost in the process.
From initial contact to final closing, DBP was prompt, professional and offered expert advice. Things happened when they said they would happen, there were no surprises and no last minute scrambles. I am so pleased with DBP, I will definitely use them again and would highly recommend this team for any real estate needs.
I had an awesome experience with David Brodsky Properties. Lauren McCoy was right on it for me. If she didn't have the answer, she checked on it for me. Everything was handled with professionalism and I appreciate the quality of service that I received.
Friendly, competent, insightful and professional in all dealings in showing, dealing with potential buyers and dealing with problems as they arose. I will use them again.
As new homebuyers, Courtney was extremely hands on, walking us through the entire process and educating us along the way. Never did I feel like I was annoying her with questions, she was always available as a resource. Honestly, I wouldn't have changed one thing. The issues that were more or less out of our control, Courtney still attempted to make better or less of an issue. She had the ability to look ahead and foresee issues before they became too big of an impact.
Courtney was absolutely the best experience with a Realtor that I have had. She made the whole transition so smooth with her know-how and expertise. Courtney will have my business in any real estate transactions I do in the future. She is a true asset to the business and I will refer business to David Brodsky Properties because of her.
Courtney made listing and selling our home as streamlined of a process as possible - from her staging tips to the open house to her presentation of the NINE offers we recieved in 48 hours- the whole thing was seamless. On the other side - the home search - she acted both as a sounding board and a guide. She always led us in the right direction when it came to putting forward a strong offer - teaching us little things we could do to tweak our numbers to make them more appealing. And she never let us get discouraged if we lost one. She was patient with us as we searched for our 'perfect' home, and was our advocate throughout. She was great at talking us off the ledge, or helping us see the potential in a space. The few times when Courtney wasn't available or was double booked, Michael and Erin stepped in and went to bat for us. The team dynamic at DBP is great!
Courtney killed it. Over and over, she took a difficult contingent selling situation, with a buyer that backed out at one point, and got the job done. Her advice was instrumental during the process, also.
Chip and Shelley R.
Lauren is a knowledgeable young professional in real estate. I'd recommend her for anyone moving here to Austin as she is an Austin native herself and knows the area. That being said, she knew exactly what type of place/neighborhood I was looking for. Thanks Lauren, keep up the good work!
We had a good experience working with Lauren McCoy. We started off looking at a house we were interested in purchasing that we had seen on the internet. Lauren was the sellers agent. That house was no longer available. Lauren became our agent and showed us several houses in the Buda- Kyle area. She sent us a list of houses that were available and we checked out some of them. We found one we really liked and with Lauren's help, we were able to purchase it. We feel as though we got a good deal. Lauren was quite beneficial in getting everything we needed from the seller. Lauren was always prompt to respond to anything we needed and was very pleasant to work with.
David and his team did an excellent job marketing our home. The pictures were beautiful due to the advice given by David. He was extremely accessible and did a wonderful job negotiating on our behalf. He priced the home perfectly so we had a full price offer within 24 hours of listing our home. We highly recommend David and his team.
David was very patient with us throughout our home buying process which took longer than we expected. He was also extremely knowledgeable which made buying our first home easier for us. We could trust him to help us make a good decision that was in our best interest. We are so happy with our new home. I will definitely use him in the future if I need a realtor and would recommend him for anyone buying or selling! He truly goes above and beyond. Thanks for everything!
Courtney was a great help from beginning to end of having our home built. She was a life saver at the design center with her knowledge and help with design.
We recently partnered with the Brodsky team to purchase a home in the Austin market. Trust us, it's tricky. The values are complex right down to street level within a neighborhood. Our realtor did her homework and reviewed each property with us in significant detail. While that might be expected, we truly believe the Brodsky team was as concerned about maximizing value and upside potential with our purchase, as we were. This honestly stood out.
While realtors hustle to get clients, this never felt like a relationship which was headed toward a transaction. It really felt like a team of us searching for the right home with great value.
I used to be skeptical about realtors and the services they provide, but Courtney has proven me wrong. She was great from day 1. I couldn't have asked for a better experience. Her sub referrals were excellent, particularly the roofer.
Courtney anticipated every possible obstacle that could arise, was extremely thorough, and kept us informed throughout the entire process.
Courtney was amazing to work with. She's everything I'd ever ask for in an agent.
It's only a matter of time before my friends are ready to buy a place. When they do, I'll be certain to send them to Courtney.
I began corresponding with David a couple of months before we moved to Austin. Before we even knew for sure that we would be moving, he showed a genuine interest in helping my family in any way that he could to find the right house for us.
David became a trusted advisor to my husband and myself, and even went above and beyond by counseling us through the sale of our previous home, which was listed with another agent out of state.
After a short time looking, we found the perfect home for our family, and David was able to negotiate the price to make it work within our budget.
We are so grateful to David and his team for their help along the way. They were very professional, but also extremely personable and enjoyable to work with.
I would highly recommend David Brodsky to anyone who is looking for a real estate agent.
Both Courtney and David are very responsive and helpful. They gave great guidance while preparing for the sale, during the sale, and after when an issue popped up.
Once our house search started in earnest, David was available within an hour's notice to go look at properties. He was very patient with us, remembered what we wanted, and helped us obtain the property despite a better cash deal being offered the seller.
Absolutely amazing experience all the way around.
Courtney was fantastic to work with! She explained everything that I needed to know very clearly and made excellent suggestions on how to best market my property. I have bought and sold multiple properties in the past and this was absolutely the best experience I have had with a realtor.
Within the last year Michael helped us find a short lease as well as a home to buy. He was very patient with our two small children that were with us for ALL showings. Michael was always willing to take us out for showings, sometimes on short notice. We appreciate all his time and effort to help us find a home to meet our needs/wants!
Justin and Jenny H.
I had not worked with either Courtney Unangst or David Brodsky in the past. But one has to be impressed with the professionalism and the results. They know the market and they understand all the nuances of complex contracts, contingent offers, etc.
We received what we considered to be full market value, and the process was a very smooth one. Just as important, there was consistent communication and dialogue, and full engagement in overcoming the few issues that arose.
It is natural to call into question the commission structure. But I can safely say that Courtney provided great value in the marketing of the property, the negotiations, as well as a network of vendors to help with staging and repairs. The commission paid is worth every dollar. We couldn't have done it without them.
Bar none, the best Corporate relocation experience my wife and I have ever had and we've done this seven times over my 30-year medical career. David brings a unique perspective to real estate by leveraging his years of C-suite experience as a Chief Financial Officer. Highly personable, well in-tuned to 'your' needs and the local market. Highly recommended if relocating.
David's recommendations to stage the house and price it fairly proved to be spot on and resulted in accepting an offer in just 5 days.
Attention to deadlines & details helped execute the 2 1/2 weeks to close go flawlessly.
David's staff are professionals in every sense of the word and bring a personal aspect to the table of being genuinely involved in the process through the entire listing & selling experience.
You'll feel like a "part of the family" while being treated with the greatest respect and the epitome of real estate expertise with DBP!
Michael Meyer with David Brodsky Properties did an incredible job of helping me to locate a rental property in the Austin Area. I had very specific requirements with regard to the neighborhood as it related to the schools my children would attend. He went with me to several properties, contacted multiple agents representing potential homes, and he spent an entire day with me trying to find the right place for our family. Mike even met me at a place where I had a business meeting scheduled in order for me to sign the final application for the house and he hand delivered it to the rental company. We plan to purchase a home in 12 months and we will absolutely call on Michael and David Brodsky Properties to help make that happen.
Courtney is AMAZING! She is an incredible combination of an analytical mind, high emotional intelligence, and incredible drive all while never losing focus of her clients. I have been truly inspired in my own business as a financial planner by working with her and David Brodsky Properties and will steal some of your practices to incorporate in my own! Hope you don't mind. 🙂
David Brodsky Properties helped us purchase our Austin home and, after several years, helped us to sell the home. The purchase price was below our expectations, the selling price was above our expectations. The degree of professionalism is outstanding. We would be more than comfortable using David Brodsky properties to help us find and purchase another home, if the occasion arises in the future.
We were able to find a rental virtually, which saved us time and money because we trusted our agent. We also beat an existing offer because our agent, Courtney, informed us about what was important to the sellers. We are excited to work with Courtney again when we are ready to purchase in a year!
We live outside the US and wanted to make a property investment in Austin, despite not knowing the area. After months with no luck of contacting realtors who could really understand the long distance situation and be able to explain to us more about the city, surroundings and give us expertise advice, we finally came across Courtney through a very trusted recommendation, and it could have not been better!
Courtney went above and beyond our expectations, was very professional in her advice and maintained flawless communication with us the whole time, which was key.
We found the property we were looking for and move very fast on the buying process thanks to the proactivity and expertise of Courtney. All this long distance.
We are very thankful and would recommend her services to anyone interested on real state investment in Austin!
Thanks to you Courtney, we can also express our satisfaction for the support we have received for this transaction.
Initially, we were a bit concerned about making this work from so far but you really made it so smooth for us with all your emails, calls and even proactive solutions all along the process.
Plus, the fact that you always took it further than required just to make sure we were getting the right property on the right terms!
Thanks for the patience! (Including a last minute strategy change, i.e. single to duplex property search, few days before we met in December)
So grateful to have worked with you and for sure you always will get our referral for any friend searching for Austin area!
Working with Courtney at DBP was the best choice we could have made for selling our house. She not only knows the market backwards and forwards, she's a force of nature when she goes to bat for her clients. She made the entire experience of selling our first home both easy and enjoyable. Her staging tips were brilliant, and our open house brought in 9 offers! We will be using Courtney and the DBP team for all of our future real estate transactions and recommending them to all of our friends!
There were really no hiccups - the open house was awesome, and Courtney knew it'd be crazy so she brought Michael along, which I know was helpful in fielding questions/talking to prospective buyers. The process of narrowing down the offers was emotionally tough but because of Courtney's spreadsheet and organizational skills, it wasn't too hard for us to make the right call.
Chance and Claire P.
As a native Austinite, Lauren is very knowledgeable about the market. She was attentive and resourceful. Her attention to detail resulted in a smooth closing process. I would absolutely recommend her to anyone looking for assistance in today’s Real Estate market!
Leigh Ann M.
Lauren and the David Brodsky team took the time to listen and understand my needs as a seller and buyer. Lauren’s attention to details resulted in timely closings with no surprises. I would absolutely recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell a home!
We were extremely fortunate to have been referred to Courtney by friends.
From our first meeting with Courtney we know she was the agent we wanted to work with and represent us in selling our home and purchasing a new one. Courtney provided detailed information and numbers and spent time educating us on the current real estate market.
Because of Courtney’s superior eye for detail in preparing our home for the market, and listing the house right on the money, we sold within days!
The experience at each phase of the sales effort was smooth. Each task, was handled quickly and professionally. She always let us know what to expect or what the status was with the current negotiation.
Our desire to stay in the same subdivision with a limited amount of homes on the market could have been a challenge given our closing timeframe on the sale of our home. But, we knew we were in the right hands and went for it.
While we have bought and sold a few homes, we have never experienced such a high level of excellence. We know from our past experience with other agents, had we not worked with Courtney, the end result could have been completely different.
Today we are in our dream home and cannot thank Courtney enough for her efforts in making that possible.
John and Kelly G.
Courtney was a true pleasure to work with during our relocation to the Austin area. Having not been familiar with the different neighborhoods and real estate opportunities, Courtney took the time to understand exactly what it was my wife and I were looking for in our next home. She made sure we had an opportunity to tour the surrounding area and find the perfect fit for us. She was professional, open, and completely transparent throughout the entire process. She provided the calming demeanor needed to help us navigate the home buying process. We are thrilled to be in our new home and to count Courtney as one of our first friends in Austin.
Tim and Lindsey G.
My fiancee and I interviewed four realtors, explained our less-than-helpful timeline and unrealistic expectations, and ultimately decided on David. David blew every expectation out of the water. We felt like his only clients. Other people involved with the transaction said, "David is working harder on this while on vacation than most realtors do while they are in town." That's David.
He earned our deal, our trust, and he absolutely earned our repeat business for our next home purchase. From start to finish he had the personality to joyfully keep us engaged in the home buying process, had the knowledge we needed to make an intelligent decision, and absolutely went above and beyond for us.
We would wholeheartedly recommend David to everyone and would not buy or sell another property in Austin without him. He was definitely part of our team and will remain to be in the future. THANK YOU DAVID!!!!"
Nick Z. and Megan W.
David Brodsky is an excellent realtor who listens to your needs. He is able to customize your home search based on location, price, and what is most important to you. He will not pressure you and will not push you into anything you don't want to do. He is an excellent resource for financing questions. I would recommend all of my family and friends to use David for their new home purchases.
Heather and Craig C.
David was fun to work with and very knowledgeable. Especially being first time homeowners, we felt like he was there to help through the entire process. Everything went smoothly with the transaction, and David knew how to make our offer stand out in such a competitive market.
Parviz and Aly R.
Who says buying a house has to be difficult? David Brodsky made the entire process easy and enjoyable for us (he did all the hard work, so we didn't have to)! We knew right away that he had our best interest at heart and would work hard to find the best home for us - and he succeeded in record time! David kept us well informed from beginning to end, and since this was our first home, that meant a lot to us. He took time to get to know exactly what we were looking for, and he was honest and thorough regarding what we should expect and consider. If you're looking to buy any kind of property, we HIGHLY RECOMMEND David Brodsky!
WHAT WE LOVED ABOUT DAVID:
- He was consistently easy to get a hold of.
- Our questions were answered throughly and in a timely manner.
- He took time to explain details to us in a way we could comprehend.
- He was respectful to us, as well as others.
- It was obvious he had our best interest in mind.
- The houses he showed us were in our price range and square footage requirements.
- He was incredibly helpful with the closing process, and kept us well informed along the way.
- Nothing was difficult! David made everything easy for us.
- We loved the portal for house hunting that we could access on our phones as well, so we could look anywhere anytime.
- He was both personable and professional.
Larry and Emily L.
"Being a first time home buyer, I was confused and terrified. Courtney addressed my likely silly concerns with no issues and always made her self available. I loved being able to call or text her directly. It made the process much easier and comfortable for me. The sellers agent was less than communicative and on point but it didn't stop Courtney from making sure the transaction closed smoothly. She's also been a tremendous help with connecting me to excellent contractors. I seriously can't thank her enough for all of her help. We met for breakfast after I emailed her about a property she was selling and I knew right then that I was in the right hands."
"David is an awesome realtor who does everything to make sure his clients are seeing the houses they are truly interested in, and does everything to help them throughout the entire buying process."
Ryan and Shawn S.
From the moment we met Courtney we knew we were being guided by a professional and dedicated realtor. Her knowledge of the Austin real estate market was impressive but more impressive was her human relations skills that were demonstrated through her interactions with our live in elderly mother, her suggestions for staging our home, and her feedback from conducting our open house. She is funny, knowledgeable, realistic and caring - all traits that helped us navigate the perilous journey of selling our home. The end result was a home that received 4 bids in the first two days on the market and a final closing price that was higher than our asking price. If you want a realtor that you can trust, look no farther than Courtney Unangst.
Greg and Elyn M.
"Courtney was amazing. I truly enjoyed my experience. She had so much patience with me... The buying experience was a little scary for me. She walked me through every step. I would suggest Courtney to anyone and already have!"
I would recommend DBP to anyone who asked. David is very knowledgeable and patient for a first time home buyer. We never felt pressured or alone in the process. Overall it was a great experience and we love our new house!
I've had the pleasure of working closely with Courtney many times, and am continually impressed with her unmistakable professionalism! I have worked with many other agents but she definitely makes a distinction with her enthusiasm, competency, and dedicated client relations. I would recommend her without reservation, with the confidence that anyone who works with her will be elated with their decision to do so. She's undoubtedly the "My Realtor for life" sort!
I highly recommend Courtney to anyone looking to buy a home. She secured a contract quickly in a multiple bid scenario and kept the deal together on a challenging property with re-negotiations after the inspection. Courtney went above and beyond from the very beginning and I am grateful for all of her effort until the deal was done. It is no surprise to me, after working with her first hand, why Courtney is such a huge success as a real estate professional.
When I first started looking for houses, David was representing someone selling a home I viewed. I was so impressed with his professionalism, honesty and straight forward approach I later contracted with him to help me find my "right" house. I say "right" house because he would never let me buy a house that wasn't right for me and my lifestyle. He guided me through each step, making sure every base was covered --it was so easy. It has been three months since I closed on my house and he is still in touch making sure everything is going well. I could not have had a better real estate agent.
It was a true pleasure to work with Courtney. She is not only professional, but is willing to go above and beyond to ensure our satisfaction. We would recommend Courtney in a heartbeat to anyone needing real estate assistance.
Over the past 20 years, I have purchased 6 homes and rarely have I recognized the value that a real estate agent provides, until I worked with David and Courtney at David Brodsky Properties. Their sincere interest in remaining consistently engaged throughout the home building and buying process gave my wife and I the confidence that the always unexpected situations that arise during a home purchase were being managed by a professional and accountable team, which is invaluable in my eyes as a consumer. I will surely use them again, and would widely recommend them to anyone buying or selling a home.
It was an absolute pleasure working with David when we sold our previous home and bought our new one. He’s incredibly knowledgeable about the real estate market and is pro-active and responsive, always available to answer questions and provide guidance. He has also assembled an amazing network of talented and reliable professionals from financial advisers to home inspection experts who he was able to connect us with when we needed help. Above everything, David has impeccable integrity and is not just looking to make a quick buck like so many other realtors. He worked incredibly hard to make sure we were careful to choose the right investment for our family and, as a result, has built a relationship with us that will last for years. I trust him and he’s the only realtor I’ll ever use in Austin.
It was great to work with David. He made many excellent suggestions and we sold the property at a price we were happy with.
I feel so lucky to have met Courtney and to be represented by her. I know she had many clients in addition to me, but I always felt like I had her full attention and help. She knows what she's doing and because of it I now own my first home. Thank you Courtney!
Working with Courtney has been a fantastic experience on both the buying and selling side of the equation. Courtney recently assisted my wife and I with listing an investment property in an up and coming part of East Austin. Courtney's attention to detail and thoroughness are top notch, but her real value comes in developing a strategy around your real estate situation. By understanding the property, potential buyers, and the specific local market, Courtney was able to save us both time and money by advising us on an appropriate strategy. The property was quickly under contract, and even though issues occurred with the buyer's lender, Courtney handled the situation with ease, and ensured that all necessary steps in the process were documented and completed.
On the buying side, Courtney is patient, understanding, and extremely knowledgeable. She continues to guide and educate us through the process of finding our next purchase. We will be very confident in listing our current property and buying our next through Courtney and David, and are excited about the prospect of our ongoing relationship. We highly recommend Courtney's services and David Brodsky Properties!
James and Courtney C.
Courtney Unangst was AMAZING! She really went above and beyond to ensure my customer experience was a positive one. I am a developer in Chicago and work with many real estate agents but I have yet to work with one as committed to exceeding their client's expectations the way Courtney did. She is a personable and polished professional and I will absolutely refer her to friends and family in the future.
Courtney is a stellar real estate agent. Even before having our business, she spent three hours with us getting to know us, our needs, and the house we were selling. She was always extremely accessible and guided us through the sale of our first home. She anticipated our questions before we even knew what they were. I could not recommend her more!
Purchasing my home with David Brodsky was one of the best and easiest home purchases I've ever done!
David handled both the sale of our existing home and the purchase of our new home professionally. He was invaluable during negotiations. His business experience helped guide us through the negotiations to a positive outcome.
Courtney Unangst was by far the best and most professional realtor I have ever dealt with having dealt with at least a dozen. I can't say enough about David Brodsky Properties and how well Courtney Unangst handled the job. Courtney was wonderful to deal with and the whole transaction was positive from the beginning until closing which she attended with us. I will tell all of my friends and colleagues about DBP and its outstanding realtors!
We met Courtney just over a year ago when our next-door neighbors put their house on the market. At that time, we mentioned to Courtney that we were planning to sell our home in the next year or so. She was proactive in reaching out to us, but never in a pressuring manner. Once it was time to sell, we contacted her, and both she and David were available to meet at our convenience. At our first meeting, it was obvious they had done their homework about the market, specifically our area. They walked us through the selling process and were very honest with us about how to price and stage our home. With Courtney’s advice, we made small decorating investments and the house looked incredible! The professional photographer’s pictures and video of our home were amazing. Our home sold in the first week of being on the market and we were moved out in less than a month. We are very appreciative of David and Courtney’s professional advice and service; we would definitely work with them again and recommend them to anyone wanting to buy or sell a home.

I've been licensed realtor in Texas since 1985 and I chose David Brodsky as our realtor. David told me exactly what to do and not do to sell my existing house in a down market. It sold in three days within one percent of the asking price. We had to move quickly. David found us a great rental property, and then found us our current customer home which was far beyond our expectation in quality and at a price that I still have trouble believing. He was with us each step of the way and always ready to help. When we were moving in he even brought in a special cleaning crew to ensure the house met our expectations. We value David and recommend him continually. We've bought and sold many houses all over Texas in our 38 years of marriage. David is the best realtor with whom we've ever worked.

David Brodsky was an absolute pleasure to work with in both the sale of our house and the purchase our dream home. Despite how stressful the whole process of buying and selling a home can be David made us feel very comfortable through his unmistakable experience and professionalism. He was by far the most honest, hard-working and knowledgeable real estate agents we have ever worked with and we would not hesitate to work with him again and share him with all of our friends. He even put his lucky sign in front the house we sold and boy did it work! However, I really do not think it had anything to do with luck…he is just that amazing as your agent!
Our first home buying experience could not have gone smoother. Courtney was fabulous and everyone she brought into the process or referred us to was as professional, courteous and helpful as Courtney.

The attention to detail, the level of representation and the personal attention was incredible. My Realtor, Courtney Unangst, was prompt, readily accessible and always open to ensuring my needs were met. I'd highly recommend Courtney & David Brodsky Properties to anyone looking for personal, conscientious and courteous representation. I will be working with them again!
I never imagined finding a place would be so easy and fast but Courtney made it happen! Courtney was really in tune to my needs. She was organized, thorough and personable. She offered an objective viewpoint and was extremely knowledgeable. She guided me through the whole process and was willing to go the extra mile on weekends and evenings. I couldn't have done it without her!
We were in a tricky situation where we needed to sell two houses, in two different neighborhoods and then buy a new house in a specific area within a specific period of time. David and Courtney were able to put a plan together, price each house appropriately, give us cost efficient recommendations on staging and sell both houses within the time frame we hoped for. Then, we were able to find a new house that fit all of our needs within our budget. David’s “personal CFO” approach helps give perspective to both the short term and long term considerations when buying a house, and his straightforward and realistic approach to selling a house allows for a pricing strategy that will move the house quickly while getting the profit you desire. We couldn't be happier with the outcome.

It was a pleasure working with David. He was very professional and extremely knowledgeable in his approach to the sale of our home and subsequent purchase of a new home. His patience and sense of humor was a blessing while we looked at numerous homes. I would not hesitate to recommend David to anyone I know.
In order to properly summarize our experience with Courtney in one word: Amazing. Everything that she has done for us was above and beyond our expectations. She was always more than happy to answer any questions and address any concerns that came along with purchasing our first home.
Initially we were intimidated with the whole process of purchasing our first home together. But all of our worries went away when Courtney came around. From Day 1 she got right down to business with what we were looking for and where. We had different views on what we thought was to be our “dream home”. She took all of our lofty ideas in stride and narrowed them down within a couple of days. Within that same week we were touring houses. We came across a beautifully perfect home and began the purchasing process.
Throughout the time from when we put the offer in until we closed, Courtney still continued to be there for us. Anytime, day or night, she was there for us. Every step, big and small, was clearly explained to us as many times as we needed to understand and I am still amazed on how easy she made the process for us. When it came time to sign the documents, we already knew the terms and conditions because she was so helpful in explaining them upfront.
We will always remember this as a positive learning experience. We 100% recommend Courtney Unangst of David Brodsky Properties, and when the time comes for us to sell and purchase our next place, she is going to be the first person we call. We cannot be more thankful for everything that she has done.

From my first meeting with David, when I was nowhere near being in the market to sell and buy, I was blown away. David is a Finance Executive gone Realtor, which provides a unique perspective on real estate. He approaches real estate with a highly analytic, process-driven methodology. He uses data and numbers to prove his perspective. The data never lies. He also has a personality, not always true of those with a finance background, and was able to build solid relationships with my wife and me. We trusted David to do the right thing. He made us feel as if we were his only clients. The results were impeccable - we had 6 offers on our home opening weekend and subsequently sold the home above our listing price (disclaimer: David probably can't make this miracle happen all of the time). He found us a new home quickly, negotiated with our best interests in mind, and got us into our new home in just the right amount of time. I'd highly recommend giving David a shot, even if you are not on the market today. At the very least, you'll build a life-long relationship like I have with him.
I have sold three houses in Austin over the past 15 years. I can truly say that David Brodsky Properties is the best team of realtors I have ever worked with. Firm principals David Brodsky and Courtney Unangst are outstanding.
I made the decision in August, 2009 to sell an estate property that was appraised at $1.5 million before the significant decline in the real estate market. With more than 1,000 homes that were valued at $1 million or more on the market in the midst of one of the most severe real estate downturns in this nation’s history, David Brodsky Properties assisted me in selling my home at 90% of the appraised value from when the real estate market and the economy were booming.
The process began with Courtney staging my house to highlight its beauty and unique features. That was followed by nationwide marketing of my property in a professional and effective manner. David Brodsky did a great job in screening persons who expressed an interest in the property and was able to accurately tell me who was serious and who was not.
I was concerned that the best offer that I would get for my home would be around 75% of its appraised value (during the boom time). I am convinced that the professionalism of David Brodsky Properties made all the difference in me selling my home.
These results convinced me that David Brodsky and Courtney Unangst are the best!
Our experience with Courtney Unangst of David Brodsky Properties has been nothing short of amazing. She handled the sale of our current home and the purchase of our new home; on the sale side, she did a brilliant job of providing advice on the staging of our home. It looked like a million bucks! She also navigated the intricacies of the contract vetting process with an attention to detail and strategy that was very impressive. On the purchase side, she helped us find a home that is a perfect fit. Her knowledge of the local market and her perspective on negotiating was a tremendous help. We couldn't be happier with our experience!
I had the trifecta of real estate needs in 2014. An investment property to earn a better rate of return than a bank account, the sale of a residence and the purchase of new residence. Courtney Unangst is my realtor of choice. I had been working with her on an HOA board and came to value her knowledge and expertise in the real estate world. We worked throughout the year, discussing options, going through listings, plodding through properties. In the space of less than five months, the investment property and both the sale and purchase of the residence were completed. None of this would have happened had I been dealing with a real estate agent with limited experience. She is, as they say, wicked smart! And great fun to work with. I heartily recommend her to friends.
“I was looking for a diamond in the rough…a nice place near downtown at a reasonable price. David helped me find a foreclosed town home which was perfect for me and discounted 20% relative to the rest of the market. I was concerned because foreclosures are typically very difficult deals to work through, but David made the entire process effortless for me through his behind-the-scenes work and incredible knowledge of the process. I’ve never worked with another real estate agent as capable, insightful, and most importantly, concerned about his client’s needs. I will continue to use David as my real estate agent as long as I remain in Austin.”
