Being a great realtor in any market requires a very special skillset. Being a great realtor in Austin, Texas requires an even more heightened level of competence, experience, and finesse. But being the Austin’s best realtor? That’s just heroic. And it’s not something that can be accomplished through training or technique… it’s something, well… that is hardwired into a very select few people. Tarek Morshed is one such Austin realtor that was gifted with the ability to lead people home.
“Tarek’s knowledge and experience is so far beyond anyone I have ever used, it’s amazing. I recommend him because I know they’ll get the best honest advice, even if it’s not to buy right now. He unequivocally will not steer someone wrong, and I want people to have the best realtor in Austin. I’m picky and choosy, and if he can help me get what I want, he can help anyone do the same.” – Jason Crawford, of Austin, Texas.
Austin’s best realtor must be willing to be honest. “Honesty saves everybody time,” says Tarek Morshed, “Telling the truth not only brings freedom on all levels, but it keeps you in good company. It sets a strong foundation in all my relationships. As far as I’m concerned, the word ‘client’ is interchangeable with ‘friend.’ It’s just the way I operate.” The bottom line is this: when it comes to buying a home, a person will never forget who led them to their dream house – or to a house of horrors. To establish trust in any relationship, honesty must be a touchstone.
“I refer Tarek because of his incredible follow up, 10 years out from his initial help! He goes above and beyond in sharing expertise and contacts (handyman, arborist, landscapers, etc.) and he’s kind, good, ethical, and trustworthy.” – Amina Haji, MD, FAAFM, ABIHM – Founder and CEO, Karisha Community
To be Austin’s best realtor you must be a local thought leader and understand the Austin lifestyle. In other words, one must be an Austin expert. Besides being deeply involved in the local builder & architecture community, (insert link: http://tarekmorshed.com/about/ ) Tarek purchased his first investment property while attaining an Accounting Degree at The University of Texas. Living in Texas for over 30 years and in Austin for over 20, much of this time was devoted to studying real estate and completing courses in real estate investing, investment analysis, financial tools, appraisal, law, and ethics at the Austin Institute of Real Estate and Robert Allen Real Estate School. As a result of being involved in the Austin real estate market since 1993, Tarek is often described as a “teacher,” and “market clairvoyant.” Tarek’s greatest concern is bringing all he has to the table, so his clients can rest in the fact that the real estate part of their lives is in good hands. Knowledge is power.
Just like an artist can’t help but make art, great realtors can’t help but share their knowledge with anyone who will listen. “Tarek knows more about residential, commercial & development in Central Austin, than anyone I have ever met.” Says Steve Vinklarek, Austin State Farm Insurance Agent. “Two things separate Tarek from everyone else; his business acumen, and he cares.” And that’s truly how it works – realty is creative, exciting, and serves as a perfect stage for an individual with a problem-solving mindset.
“Tarek really educates his clients about real estate, with respect to many things, including individual houses, the Austin real estate market, and thinking about housing supply/demand cycles.” – Jason Baldridge, Austin
Early on in his real estate career Tarek committed to being an agent who would offer outstanding market and economic foresight, ensure clients were extremely well- prepared through the process, created custom strategies to each client’s unique situation, and an after-closing value-add program second to none – all resulting in trusted long–term friendships and relationships. These strong values laid the foundation that drives Tarek to serve his clients the same way today.
“I love Austin, I love living in Austin, I love architecture, and I love bringing new friends into the fold here. I look forward to getting even more involved in helping people plug into Austin and all it has to offer.” – Tarek Morshed
