Welcome to my Residential Real Estate About Me page. My name is Rick Orr and I am a real estate agent serving Austin and Port Aransas area. I became a real estate agent because I love helping buyers and sellers, particularly local tech entrepreneurs, with their real estate needs. I take pride in providing a unique approach to real estate and stand out from other real estate agents by focusing on luxury properties and utilizing my international network of entrepreneurs, entertainers, and athletes to market and represent my clients. I am particularly proud of selling a $23M home on Lake Austin in 2021. This transaction was memorable and reaffirmed my commitment to providing exceptional service to my clients. My approach to working with clients is to have fun during the process and negotiate hard when the time comes! I specialize in all things luxury and I am well-versed in the unique features and benefits of each neighborhood in the area. Whether you are looking to sell or buy a property, I am confident that I can assist you in making the process a success. Contact me today to discuss your real estate needs!
