We really can’t say enough good things about Ari. We purchased our first home in the Austin area from out of state, and he went above and beyond to make the process as smooth as possible. He got back with us so quickly and was so fast to move on homes we were interested in. He is also extremely knowledgeable about the market and the area, which is a huge bonus for us, especially coming from out of state with kids that will be entering the school district. He was always available to text, call, and Facetime us through homes and discuss offers we were considering. We’ve worked with several realtors in other areas of the country, and there really is no comparison. We cannot recommend him highly enough

Ari is an outstanding agent. He got us a full price offer and negotiated a contract within four days of listing our home. Ari worked to close the deal in less than 30 days from the initial offer, all without actually listing the home on MLS. He’s a high energy, totally honest guy who knows his stuff. Ari works harder and smarter than anyone I know.

Ari is the ultimate seller’s Realtor. In a market flooded with agents, we were fortunate to be referred to Ari. After having our home unsuccessfully listed for close to a year with another more senior, “connected” agent, devoid of offers, we had to scramble. Our previous agent cost us tens of thousands by having our home on the market far longer than we anticipated.
We were in dire straits and desperate to sell. Ari immediately soothed our frayed nerves when he laid out his marketing strategy. He performed an exhaustive market analysis, priced our home perfectly, and brought us written offers within days of listing. When the first buyer fell out of contract, Ari almost immediately had it under contract again — and for more money than the first contract!
Ari is a shrewd negotiator and is flush with technical knowledge of the process. In a world of smooth talkers, Ari was a breath of fresh air. He has a commanding knowledge of the business and he didn’t sugar coat a thing. Ari is tenacious and meticulous, whether it was dealing with other Realtors, writing contracts or helping us by tending to the house after we moved. He easily saved us tens of thousands throughout the process.
Our only regret is that we did not sign with him sooner. His knowledge of the market in the Austin area is staggering and only surpassed by his command of the technical component of the business. I feel fortunate to have had him in our corner. He was always available to patiently and thoroughly answer questions and assuage our concerns. Ari made us feel like owners of a multi-million dollar property.
We cannot recommend Ari strongly enough if you want to sell your home quickly and for top dollar. He surpassed all expectations I had in regards to what a Realtor’s job is. He was brilliant every time we spoke, educating us throughout the process. I wish he was in Virginia for when I buy my next house, he would be my permanent go-to Realtor.

I was fortunate to meet Ari by chance at an open house he hosted when I was helping a friend with her home search. While I hadn’t planned on moving from my Central Austin home, I fell in love with a home in Lakeway. Recalling Ari’s attitude, knowledge and demeanor when we met initially, I knew that I wanted his assistance with my offer and potential purchase. With Ari’s support and guidance, I was able to purchase my dream home for the exact price I was comfortable offering and he arranged a closing date that worked out beautifully with the sale of my current home.
Based upon his enthusiasm, diligence and counsel in helping me purchase my new home, I had 100% confidence that he was the best REALTOR® to sell my existing home. I was right. Within less than two weeks of listing my home, we went under contract at 99.8% of Ari’s recommended list price. The contract was negotiated and the closing done and timed perfectly with the purchase of my new home and subsequent move. Considering the work and stress involved in purchasing and selling homes and moving, I could not have asked for an easier or more efficient transition. Ari supported me every step of the way through each transaction and remained (and remains) accessible to me for any questions or recommendations for service providers and the like. He is truly one-of-a-kind and working with him was a delightful experience that I hadn’t had in several home sales and purchases before.
I give Ari my highest recommendation. His integrity, energy and availability are top-notch and he knows this business inside and out, both from the buyer and seller perspectives. Ari can be relied upon to provide thoughtful recommendations, extensive knowledge, and support through the entire home purchase or sales process.

My family was relocating to Austin from out of state in July 2014, and we were pressed for time to find a home in the Lakeway area before the school year began and my son was to start kindergarten in August. I had met Ari at an open house my first weekend in Austin, and I reached out to him the following week when I could not get the time I needed with another agent with whom I had started working. Ari’s response and engagement were instantaneous. He quickly assessed our needs and our timeline and made himself available within 24 hours of my outreach to him.
As I was here in Austin and leading the ‘on the ground’ search for a home for my family while my husband and son were still out of state, Ari assumed a level of commitment, responsibility and support beyond what I’ve experienced from any other Realtor I’ve dealt with in past transactions. Ari expertly guided me through the entire transaction, educated me on nuances in the process unique to the Texas market, and offered personal recommendations on any number of service providers that we would need to help us transition our day-to-day lives to Lakeway.
Ari’s boundless availability, expertise and professionalism are second to none, and we undoubtedly would have had a much different outcome and not landed in our first-choice house had he not been at the helm. We are so grateful to Ari for his friendship and guidance that led us to a successful closing!
– Jeanine & Chris, Lakeway, TX
I used Ari to represent me in my home purchase. Ari found me the perfect home and kept it well within my budget. Ari managed to negotiate a below market price on a home less than two week s on the market. Ari’s market knowledge and negotiating skills were instrumental in getting the only home that met my very specific needs. Ari was in constant communication with me throughout the process and, after the transaction closed, he helped me locate various professionals to remodel my newly purchased home. I’ve purchased several homes in my life and Ari’s knowledge, service, and commitment were second to none. I would not hesitate to use Ari on another purchase and I offer my strongest recommendation that my friends and family do the same when buying or selling a home.
