Vinod and Bhupinder Adlakha
Wife and I would like to thank you an your staff for a job well done in advising us, listing our house in Lantana area of Austin and getting the house in contract within three weeks. Your staff has been very professional and flexible in the journey of listing to closure of sale of our house on Terravista Drive. We will highly recommend anyone who is buying or selling a house in the Lantana area as we found you and your team to be very effective in the neighborhood.

Brian did a great job helping us with the purchase of our new construction home. He knew all the right questions to ask the builder, things we never would have thought of on our own. He was particularly helpful in getting pricing information about the optional upgrades before we committed to buying the home. As a result, there were no surprises along the way and the home buying experience was much less stressful.
Throughout the process, Brian was very attentive and responsive, even when our questions were lengthy or numerous. He was always patient, offered valuable insight, and it really made us feel like we had a very knowledgeable, courteous, and friendly resource on our side.
Brian is a true professional. We were fortunate enough to get to know him and his family while living in the same neighborhood. When it came time to sell our house, we interviewed other agents, but he blew the competition away based on his attention to our needs and his skill in developing the right marketing strategy. He definitely did not disappoint. He’s extremely organized and uses some great technology to help manage the process. Best of all, we were impressed with his entire team. They were all great and worked together seamlessly to make our lives easier. We ended up with a contract in about two weeks, and Brian played an instrumental role in making sure all parties made it to the finish line. He was especially helpful to us as we ended up moving to another city before the closing. During that time, he went out of his way to make it easy for us. He’s not only very good at what he does, but he also cares. We highly recommend Brian and his team.

This is the second transaction I had with Brian. We had purchased a house over a year ago, and then needed to sell that home; and I needed to get something smaller. Brian was involved at every stage of the sale of the house. He made timely and excellent suggestions and pushed me when it was necessary that I be pushed. He recommended people to help stage the house as well as people who would be able to do work on the house…getting it ready for sale. The house went on the market and within 2 weeks, it had been seen by over 40 groups. Two tendered offers and I was able to get more for the house than I had asked. All within a three week period. Although the closing was a bit complex, Brian kept calm and steered me through the process. The house closed and I was able to move in to my new house without difficulty.
I have now used Brian twice. He is extremely professional and extremely competent. He’s easy to work with. I would not hesitate to use him again, nor hesitate to recommend him to anyone who may need an excellent realtor.
Cory and Betsy Macdonald
Our family was set on staying in our current neighborhood where the housing supply is fairly limited. We had to be ready to sell our home as soon as a new house we wanted became available. Brian provided thorough guidance on getting our house ready for sale, and then, as soon as a house we wanted went on the market, he and his team had our house under contract the day we listed it. This allowed us to put an offer on the new house immediately.
We had very specific requirements for timing and location, and the process of selling and buying at the same time seemed very challenging before we started. Brian helped us understand how the process would work, and then he made it happen. Brian was always available when we had questions or concerns, and he and his team enabled us to move into a great new home in the same neighborhood. We have already recommended Brian and we will continue to do so.
Larry and Carolyn
We wanted to let you know what a positive experience it was working with you on our home search in Austin. It was a difficult process for us to go through since we were very happy in our home in San Antonio. We had a number of features in that home which we anticipated would be very difficult to duplicate (at a price we could live with) in the Austin market.
We came across your website and began to research the market electronically. When you made direct contact with us we were impressed with your follow-up and professionalism. We began our face-to-face interaction over 1 ½ years ago and were concerned because we could not find anything that met our requirements. You were very patient with us and made us feel comfortable that we were not wasting your time. Your research of the homes we wanted to view was excellent and the appointments were well put together. We felt your insight of the market created a great deal of confidence in you and your knowledge of the market. We never felt any pressure to make a decision in order expedite the process. When we finally did decide on a home, you and the rest of your organization provided excellent support for the loan application and closing process.
Brian we want to thank you for your assistance and support throughout the entire move to our new home in the Austin area.
We wish you the greatest success and we are confident that you and your Regent organization will grow and flourish and be an asset to many more families in the future.
Josh and Taylor
Shortly after my wife and I moved to Austin, we decided to check out the housing market. We found Brian’s website and signed up to view the houses – shortly after Brian contacted us asking if we wanted to see a few houses. We told him to call back in one month. Exactly one month later we were checking out tons of different houses with Brian.
Being our first home, Brian and his team were very patient with us and answered any questions we had to make us feel comfortable with making a large purchase. After a few months of searching, we were able to find the perfect house! Brian guided us through the process and was very diligent to make sure we were protected and got the best deal possible.
Brian’s not just a great realtor, but a new friend. I would highly recommend him if you’re looking for a special place.
Mark and Linda Cain
After planning for many years to move back to Austin after retirement, my husband and I finally made it in June 2011. Brian Talley provided outstanding service to us as we searched for and bought our new home. Because it took over a year for us to sell our home in Ohio, we had lots of time to work with Brian, and to compare his service with that of our Ohio realtor. We were very impressed with Brian’s responsiveness, his availability to talk or meet with us, his timely and effective communications, and his use of technology to make our long distance purchase of a home as easy as possible. We would recommend him highly to anyone looking to sell or purchase a home.
Cindy and Mike Schwartz
My husband and I currently live in the Chicago area and our daughter has just completed her first year at UT in Austin. I first discovered Brian Talley and Regent Property Group by visiting their website. We wanted to purchase property in Texas to establish in-state residency for our daughter in order to save on UT tuition, as in-state tuition is significantly less than out-of-state tuition. Initially we considered purchasing lakefront property and spent a full weekend with Brian looking at several properties. Brian set us up with Regent’s very helpful personalized property search website and he provided us with all the information available about any property that we were inquiring about.
Several months into our search we discovered that our daughter was going to need a place to live for her remaining years at UT. This caused us to totally switch gears from looking at lakefront property to something on/near campus for our daughter and two roommates. Brian and Lionel were amazing when it came to this sudden change in our property search. In fact, when I inquired about several condos and before I could arrange another visit, they spent a day touring the condos and provided me with a narrated virtual tour of each one. This was so helpful and talk about ABOVE AND BEYOND!
Brian and Lionel truly showed a genuine concern about finding the right condo for our daughter and her roommates. As you can imagine, each of the girls had their own ideas as to the ideal condo they would like to live in (even though ultimately it was our decision). Brian and Lionel were always attentive to their needs yet very professional when addressing their concerns and ours. Location was our #1 concern and then, of course resale.
Brian and Lionel were always available for us from start to finish, they returned calls/e-mails in a timely manner, and made the “long distance” process so doable. We couldn’t be more pleased with our entire experience or with our purchase.
Brian and Lionel at Regent Property Group LLC were superb from start to finish in the home buying process. We were coming from Italy and unable to do much research or coordination in person, but that didn’t reduce the quality of their service. The MLS portal they set up was very informative and helped us narrow down our choices. Once we flew in to look at houses they were efficient and patient in explaining the market and pros and cons of each property. We even switched our buying criteria in terms of price and location in the middle of the process, causing them to build from scratch a new list of homes for viewing. They did this with professionalism and equanimity. Further, after closing and while we were still in Italy, they arranged with contractors for work to be done on the house, supervised and inspected the quality of the work, and even did the final walk through for us.
Time and again they went over and above the normal tasks required of a realtor. I recommend them without reservation.

Within a few month period, my wife and I both bought and sold a house, each time using Brian Talley of Regent Property Group LLC as our REALTOR®. Simply put…without Brian’s knowledge and efforts, neither transaction would have come to pass. And because they did, I want to give an unreserved recommendation to Brian and the Regent Property Group team for their tireless and expert efforts to get things done.
My wife and I were recently married and each of us had a separate residence; we had been looking for a house to purchase for both of us to share. Because of divorces, our lower credit scores made it difficult to obtain financing; but Brian managed to find us a source that enabled us to finance our house and purchase the house we wanted. He walked us through the process and explained everything, so that we never felt alone and uninformed. Brian helped us through negotiations, inspection, repairs, and moving.
After we finished our move, my wife put her residence up for sale. Brian’s suggestions about repairs, staging, etc were right on the money. Within 16 days, we received an acceptable offer. Again, Brian guided us through the process. The sale and the closing went off without a hitch.
We were extremely fortunate to have found Brian and to have had him on our side during both the purchase and the selling aspects of our recent transactions. His professionalism and unflagging concern for our best interests were exactly what we needed.
Thank you, Brian.
Nelson and Liza Berrios
My husband and I were extremely pleased with Brian’s perseverance and due diligence during our home buying experience. From the first time we spoke it was evident that he was ready to provide any information i needed and hehad so much information to offer! He had a notable interest in addressing our concerns and had a ton of information about the Austin area. His assistant Lionel Laday is extraordinary as well. A wonderfully efficient team which I would recommend to anyone moving to Austin.
Terry and Terra Tisdale
First of all let me say that your approach and method in working with us, was EXACTLY what we needed. After our initial contact with Brian Talley, he followed up with us… but did NOT PUSH US prior to being ready to really search for our home. I really appreciated not being RUSHED/PUSHED into something I didn’t have time to do or ready to do.
You guys have an AWESOME team and are EXTREMELY helpful with your wealth of knowledge. For us, we don’t want to be babysat 24/7 as we both have business priorities & personal priorities but we know we have to get through “the process”. Your help was AWESOME. Not overbearing, being available in timely fashions and having a wealth of knowledge that we as newcomers to the area didn’t have.
I think it’s awesome when someone asks for constructive feedback. Most people REALLY don’t want feedback especially once the service they provided has basically ended. That says a lot about you knowing you are asking for it.
1. I would say that you have DEFINITELY far exceeded our expectations, especially since we never expected most of this information to be provided to us via our realtor/or his office.
2. Knowing that you guys have thought all this out and figured out what to tell us to make sure we have completed & what we need to get completed & by what timeframe… INVALUABLE!
3. The follow ups… GREAT!
4. Answering questions in a timely manner… GREAT!
5. Providing information… GREAT!
6. Relationship skills…GREAT!
7. Interaction skills… GREAT!
We will definitely be referring you guys to anyone we meet/find out they are looking for a REALTOR who is knowledgeable of the area & listens to what their needs happen to be.
We really enjoyed our home buying process and are grateful for your help! THANK YOU AGAIN … GREAT JOB!
Jeff & Diana Stegner
My husband and I decided about one year ago to begin our internet search for a condo in the downtown Austin area. We are expatriates and want to return to Texas in the near future. We began a broad search using several realtor’s websites and spent many hours to understand the current status of the downtown Austin condo market. Over the course of several months, we began to rely on Brian’s “property search” feature which brought new and changed listings to us via e-mail. As the time approached that I planned my Austin trip, my husband and I decided that we would be comfortable working with Brian. Brian had shown us that he was knowledgable, up to date and accurate about the downtown Austin market. Our decision to work with Brian proved to be an excellent decision. By the time I left Austin, my husband and I were well on our way to signing a contract for a condo in the downtown area. Buying a condo long distance can be a challenge, but Brian exceeded our expectations. With the support of his staff, particularly Lionel Laday, the process flowed smoothly. Brian was thorough, accurate and timely; he understood the entire process of buying a condo and brought us through the closing without any difficulties. Today we are happy owners of our downtown Austin condo; we highly recommend the use of Brian’s services, and we will use him again.

Andrew and Jennifer Valencia
We would like to take a few minutes and write about our experience with Brian Talley and the Regent Property team. We contacted Brian when we began a home search in the Austin area. Brian and his team were not only very prompt in contacting us. They were very responsive to our needs, accommodating to our schedule, and always very professional from the day we met all the way through closing on our new house. We would recommend Brian and his team to anyone looking for a top notch agent in the Austin area.
Brannan and Monica Johnson
We met with Brian Talley of Regent Property Group LLC about selling our home in the Ridge at Lantana subdivision in southwest Austin. To save some on commission, we decided to sell our home using a discount REALTOR® rather than working with Brian. We are very detail oriented people so we took the time to create very detailed and professional marketing materials and had our home in tip-top shape for the sale. However, our home did not sell over the next several months and eventually we contacted Brian Talley to list our home for sale because we knew he has an aggressive sales strategy and is very knowledgeable of the market and pricing. Despite the depressed real estate market and extreme challenges in selling homes in our neighborhood, Brian was able to secure a buyer for our home. Since we had already moved out of state when Brian was selling our home, Brian went above-and-beyond by spending considerable time helping us with items needing attention at our house. He worked diligently on his sales strategy for us and did a lot of leg work that proved he was attentive to detail and cared about his work. Brian gave us sound advice and recommendations throughout the sale process and proved to be trustworthy, experienced and knowledgeable. Based on our experience, we recommend Brian as the REALTOR® of choice for those buying or selling a home in the Austin area.
Ana Bela Silva and Family
My family recently moved to Austin from another country and Brian, as well as his assistant helped us so much. We got in touch with him when we were still back home and he gave us all the information we needed to start our search. When we got here, we already had a great selection of homes to visit. He was extremely patient with us and understanded exactly what we wanted and needed. He assisted us throughout the whole process, visiting the homes, closing, gave us plenty of information about the neighborhood. Really a great job! Another employee of my company will probably have to move to Austin and I already recommended Brian’s assistance. Thank you so much for your help.
Chris and Jill Rutland
When we decided to sell our home in the Mesa Park subdivision near the Arboretum in north/northwest Austin, we contacted Brian Talley of Regent Property Group because we knew he was trustworthy, professional, and good at selling homes. Our home was built in the 70’s with 1 story and a 3 bedroom 2 bathroom floor plan. While we were fortunate to have purchased the home in 2001 before the real estate boom and subsequent recession, we had done little to update the house since that time.
After first conducting a comparable market analysis, Brian noticed that there was a huge disparity between the sale prices of homes selling in the neighborhood without updates compared to those homes that features updates such as granite countertops and stainless steel appliances in the kitchen along with fresh paint. He concluded that our home was likely to sell for about $40K more if we invested around $10K in updates to our home.
The first thing that Brian did was bring in a stager (www.austinsimplestaging.com) to put together a list of recommendations and action plan to make updates to the house. We took immediate action to have the carpet cleaned, applied fresh paint, added a new front door, made improvements to the landscaping such as fresh mulch and flowers, and even installed new granite countertops and stainless steal applianes in the kitchen. All told, the cost of the work did not exceed our $10K budget. After Brian had professional photos taken of the house, we put the house on the market and despite the recession, had a full price offer 3 days later. Ultimately, Brian’s guidance along with our 10K investment and efforts in preparing the home for sale earned us around 15% in additional value.
Hiring a real estate agent can be a daunting task for us because it is difficult to know who to trust and who will do the best job. However, we are fortunate to know Brian Talley who exceeded our expectations. We do not hesitate to recommend Brian to anyone looking to buy or sell a home here in Austin.
Marat and Ophelia Chafigoulline
We had the privilege of working with Brian in the Spring of 2010. My husband and I were moving back to Austin from Moscow, Russia, starting a new job, and having a baby all within the span of a few months! Additionally, we were eager to take advantage of the first-time home buyer credit that was expiring within 8 weeks of our relocation. It was tall order with many complicating factors, but Brian delivered with flying colors!
He was proactive to set up our MLS link while we were still overseas, and as soon as we arrived in the US, we were able to hit the ground running. Brian bent over backwards to make sure we could see as many houses as we could in a limited amount of time.
While we had several disappointments along the way, Brian was always encouraging and we never felt rushed in our decision. First and foremost, we felt like he was on our side and that, ultimately, he wanted the best house for us, as a family.
An additional noteworthy advantage is how Brian excels in providing unbiased, factual market-based data, and his analytical understanding of the Austin market is unparalleled.
We unequivocally recommend RPG and we hope work with Brian again. We love our new home and we want to thank Regent Property Group for all their hard work!
The entire home searching experience with Brian and his team was exceptional. Brian is very professional, experienced, and above all patient.Even after the sale the follow-up was really an unexpected plus!
Charles and Jan Ryan
We connected with Brian in December of 2008 when we first considered relocating to the Austin area from Massachusetts. While searching the internet for homes we found the Regent Property Group website and registered to view properties. Brian Talley quickly followed-up and began helping us by first getting our search setup directly in the MLS rather than our continuing to use the helpful but less robust public websites. At this stage we were only beginning to look at homes and didn’t know for sure whether we would make the move.
Over the course of the next year, 353 days to be exact, Brian showed us a handful of homes at a time when we visited over weekends. We were looking for a horse property on the outskirts of Austin, but left the door open to finding a property with easy access to an equine facility. Over time, our search parameters evolved and we began to focus on finding a home close to some family members already located here in Austin. In the end, we found a wonderful neighborhood in southeast Austin that suits our needs perfectly. We are just minutes away from stables and family.
From beginning to end, Brian Talley was there for us. He always found a way to make himself available to show us homes when we visited Austin on numerous occasions over the course of our year long search. Brian provided us useful information about homes of interest, offered his market knowledge when appropriate, and most importantly, he never made us feel pressured about buying a home. He did an excellent job with the negotiation and closing process and we were able to purchase the home on time without a hitch!
Coming from someone who is cautious and protective about my business relationships, I’m pleased to say that Brian Talley exceeded expectations and I would therefore recommend him to anyone else that is looking to buy or sell a home in the greater Austin area.
As a first-time home buyer in Austin, starting the process of looking for a home was scary to say the least. I wanted to work with a REALTOR® who was both professional and deeply knowledgeable of Texas real estate. Soon after beginning my venture into the home search, I met Brian Talley. I had filled in my contact information on his website, and he responded quickly.
From the beginning, he listened to exactly what I wanted and made a continuous effort to show me what I requested. Brian helped me narrow down my search through his wonderful and interactive website which allowed me to view homes in specific areas, saving precious time.
Once I found the home I wanted, Brian handled everything. His vast contact list covered everything from lenders to termite inspectors. Of course Brian gave me the flexibility to use my own providers, but his were fantastic. He stayed in contact with me through the entire process and kept me updated on all progress. I was amazed to have him answer the phone in the middle of dinner to answer my questions! Also, Brian’s schedule provided the flexibility that I needed and I am sure he would provide the same for any of his clients.
Because of Brian’s diligence, knowledge and perseverance, I recently moved into my new home and could not be happier. Working with Brian made the home buying experience enjoyable, stress-free and satisfying. I’m confident that your experience with Brian, even when there is a setback, will be satisfying. I personally attest to this. He became a friend through the experience. Thanks for everything, Brian!
Brian was recommended to me by a previous client. It takes great patience to be a realtor and even more if you are successful at it. No doubt, I pushed Brian’s patience more than once, but he hung in there with me, was always gracious and kept me on the path to finding the right house. On, what I suspect is a typical world wind, let’s get to know a city in 3 days or less and find the home of your dreams, we almost succeeded. I found a home I loved, he drafted the contract, we met at the house and I realized I just hated the traffic noise. I never felt pressure to close the deal, he truly wants you to buy the right house. He also kept me from buying an absolute money pit, unique as it was, it would always be a serious work in progress. I finally put a house under contract and just 2 weeks before closing, I found out my insurance company would not insure it. Brian quickly referred a company to me and within a few short days, I was able to secure the homeowners insurance at a very good rate and closed on time. He has also directed me to some terrific people along the way for my mortgage, inspection & insurance. No doubt, I will want to move again in another few years and will reconnect with Brian when I want to start this process all over again.
I was greatly pleased with the results Brian had achieved with my property. Before working with Brian, I had previously placed my property on the market for a year. Buyers had come and gone with signed contracts but no sale. Within 2 months in a soft market Brian was able to tirelessly work through many difficulties to hold on to a buyer that was slowly falling away. Due entirely to his dedication to selling our property he was able to keep contract negotiations going and eventually closed the sale of the property. I would highly recommend his services to anyone purchasing or selling a home.
Aaron and Monica Martin
In late 2008, with the recession times getting worse, I attempted to sell my home. It was the first time selling a home, and I had no real experience, so I hired a REALTOR® . I quickly learned that a house doesn’t sell itself—but it requires effort, which that REALTOR® wasn’t putting in, so I took the house off the market.
Later, after interviewing several REALTORS® , I quickly realized that none of them really had much interest in actually working to sell my property, but life was still good, I was still employed, so there was no urgency.
In early 2009, right smack in the middle of the recession, I transitioned jobs from Texas to Florida and was forced back into the position of having to sell my home, and I was deathly afraid I would be making double payments for at least 6-9 months.
My wife and I had met Brian Talley of Regent Property Group LLC at our local HOA meeting, and had spoken several times after that about the various services he provided that were unique. Being a ‘techie’ myself, I was particularly interested in the computer generated reports and tracking—real time feedback about my property.
Brian Talley’s computer generated information allowed me to really see how my property was doing in respect to those properties around my area, and allowed me to make highly informed decisions in my selling process, and achieve realistic expectation from potential buyers.
My home sold in less than 60 days, partly because of the technology that allowed me to make the right decisions at the right time, but also because of the hard effort Brian Talley put into advertising, marketing, and consistent open-houses.
I cannot stress enough how impressed I was with the services Brian provided. I personally would use Brian Talley again in the future, and highly recommend him.
Marc and Sarah Nathan
After an extensive search of the internet, we took our mortgage broker’s recommendation and choose Brian Talley as our REALTOR®. We are so grateful that we did. As first-time homebuyers, we had some ideas about what we wanted, but were completely in the dark about how to actually purchase a home. Brian did an excellent job of managing the negotiations and sales process, guiding us towards the perfect outcome. Throughout the entire process, Brian was prompt, detail-oriented, professional, and trustworthy.
In our initial search, we immediately found a house that we fell in love with. Taking a sober view of the local market data, Brian showed us that the house was substantially overprice, and, despite the initial appeal, lacked many of the qualities we were looking for. Brian encouraged us to look at more homes to get a feel for the market, we ultimately found a home just a few days later that was not only more reasonably priced, but had all of the features we wanted. We are thrilled with our home, and thankful every day that we waited to find the perfect house.
The house that we purchased was a unique sale, being both a registered Historic Landmark by the City of Austin, and a Five-Star energy efficiency rated house by the Austin Energy Green Building Council. Brian helped us to come up with an offer that we felt reflected the entire value of the home. He negotiated a price well below the asking price and within our budget.
Brian Talley and Regent Property Group made the home-buying process an absolute pleasure, and we readily recommend Brian to anyone looking to purchase a home in Austin, Texas.
Song and Sarah Han
Brian Talley took care of us during our house buying process from the time we initiated the search while in China to the closing of our house in Austin even when the seller’s realtor dropped the ball on their end.
We started our house buying process when we were living in China. Being on the other side of the world was tricky, but Brian made it easy. He was prompt in answering questions and helped us to narrow down our list of potential houses. When we arrived in Austin, we had a goal of finding a house and closing on it within 30 days. Brian set aside time for us to view 20+ houses within 2 days until we found the house that we wanted to purchase. He was always available to to answer questions and he was good about reminding us of things we had to do in order for us to close. During the closing was when we needed Brian the most and he came through. The seller’s agent dropped the ball in many areas that day, but Brian was able to do what was necessary utilizing his contacts so that we could close on the house. In the end, we were able to get our keys right as the movers arrived. Goal accomplished.
Throughout this process, he became more than an agent, he also became our friend. If you need someone that is customer friendly, dependable and goes that extra mile, we would recommend Brian.
Debby and Greg Verheyden
Dear Brian Talley,
Thank you so much for all the hard work and time you put into finding us our perfect home. We love our new home in Georgetown!
You understood how important it was to find the right home for us. Every time we called with a list of homes to see, you made yourself available to us. We took you on a search everywhere west and north of Austin, and still, you showed up willing to cater to our needs in finding that perfect home.
Your skills for closing the deal were just as important to us. As realtors from another state, we appreciated the professionalism you showed throughout this process. You were so prompt leading us to the proper professionals such as area inspectors for the home and our pool, surveyors, etc.
Very important to us was the one year home warranty policy to give us peace of mind…and, it paid off! One month after moving in, we picked up the phone and called the number for the insurance company for our home warranty program and they immediately took care of a faulty hot water heater…and, the same day!!!
Words cannot express how thankful we are to have found you, not only as a professional Real Estate Broker, but as a friend in the Austin area. God bless you and may your business thrive! We will pass the word.
In the meantime, retirement never looked so good!
Tod Meinke and Jill Holup
Our family recently moved to Austin and we are very pleased with our new home and the experience we had working with Brian Talley.
Before our initial meeting, we discussed with Brian our needs and what the Austin real estate market had to offer. He then previewed numerous homes for us so that when we visited Austin for a housing search, we already had a very good selection of homes to see.
Like many others purchasing a home during the aftermath of the Wall Street and banking crises, our purchase involved significant and novel challenges. Brian’s attentiveness and professionalism greatly helped us close on our dream home.
For anyone considering a real estate transaction in or around Austin, I would definitely recommend that they get in touch with Brian.
Ed and Pat Ortman
We live in Maryland, work for the government, and are just a few years from retirement. We had been speaking with our daughters – one lives in Memphis, TN and the other in Mechanicsburg, PA – about all of us moving to the Austin area so that the family can be close together. My son-in-law connected with Brian Talley of Regent Property Group while searching for homes on the web. We scheduled a time for the entire family to visit Austin and tour homes, which was our first opportunity to meet Brian Talley. At that time we had no idea where or when we would purchase a home in the Austin area.
Several months later our daughter, husband and grandson, from PA, decided to speed up their move to Austin, so we decided to do the same. We contacted Brian Talley to help us find a home, but we decided to focus on purchasing a home in Kyle, Texas near Plum Creek where our kids plan to live. After touring homes with Brian it didn’t take long for us to find the house of our dreams and with Brian’s help we soon had the house under contract.
All was well until just a few days prior to the scheduled closing on the purchase of our new home in Kyle, TX. Due to our lender questioning the 2nd home status of our new home, the lender rejected our loan just two days before closing! Fortunately, Brian Talley had referred us to a mortgage broker that he trusts who not only got us a great rate on the initial quote but who was able to secure a new loan for us at the same rate and get us closed within 7 days!
While we were cautious before choosing to work with Brian Talley of Regent Property Group, we quickly learned that he is a highly credible, experienced, and trustworthy real estate professional. Brian proved to be helpful during the entire home search process and informative when we were having problems with our loan. We greatly appreciated Brian’s responsiveness and diligence in meeting all of our needs while searching for a home. Brian is now helping our kids find the home of their dreams bringing us one step closing to bringing our family together.
Communications Director, Dell
“I was living in San Francisco, CA and landed a new job with Dell in Round Rock, Texas. I immediately began searching for homes in the greater Austin area via the web and ran across the Regent Property Group website, which was very user friendly and helpful in my search. Once I registered on the Regent Property Group website Brian Talley contacted me directly to offer a helping hand in my Austin home search. He quickly got me setup with a custom property search directly in the MLS and I was invariably on my way to finding the perfect home in Austin.”
I was initially apprehensive about working with Brian since I met him over the internet, but his background and qualifications were solid so I decided to give him a shot. Fortunately, Brian proved himself to be highly experienced, professional, and helpful throughout every aspect of my search. We were able to find an amazing home in the hill country with an incredible view at a fair price. Brian was integral to a smooth purchase process from the initial property search to the negotiations, and all the way to closing. He was also helpful in connecting me with reliable contractors and vendors that were vital to the inspection and lending process, which was critical to getting the deal done. Due to my positive experience working with Brian Talley as my REALTOR®, I’m pleased to recommend him without hesitation to anyone needing help buying or selling a home in the greater Austin area.”

“I found Brian Talley of Regent Property Group while conducting an Austin home search on the internet. The Regent Property Group website came up on the search engines and I was able to use his property search tool to help find homes that met my search criteria. When I inquired about homes that I found on his website, Brian was very responsive and we were able to tour homes immediately. After conducting an exhaustive property search over the course of a few months, I contracted to have a home built. Brian made himself readily available throughout the home search process and during the construction process to answer any of my questions and to provide professional recommendations when needed. At the onset of my relationship with Brian I was reluctant to trust the quality of his services since we met over the internet. However, I’m pleased to say that my experience with Brian was very positive. Brian was responsive and professional and therefore I’m pleased to recommend him to anyone looking for help buying or selling a home in the greater Austin Texas region.”

When my husband and I decided to move into a larger home to provide our family with more space, we knew that we would have a very short time frame to get our home sold and get into a new home that would meet our needs. Our circumstances were unique in that I had been recently diagnosed with Classical Type Ehlers Danlos Syndrome and Chiari I Malformation, a condition that results in a long list of debilitating symptoms requiring major brain surgery. With only a few months before I would need to go under the knife, it was now or never in making a move. Under the circumstances we needed to find a REALTOR® who is highly professional, experienced, and reliable in order to meet our short time frame while getting us the best deal possible on the sale of our old home and purchase of a new home. While there are an abundance of good REALTORS® in Austin, we immediately thought of Brian Talley because of his high level of professionalism and experience having worked on major real estate transactions for a number of Fortune 100 firms prior to starting Regent Property Group.
We proceeded to hire Brian Talley to sell our home and to also help us search for a new home. From the start Brian Talley proved to be constantly available, reliable, and knowledgeable. He helped us decide how to prepare the condition of our home for sale and how best to set the price for a quick sale. Once we were ready to place the house on the market, Brian did everything possible to provide maximum exposure for our home to give us the best chance possible to find a buyer quickly. He also took the time to personally show us homes even though our house had no buyers yet, which we appreciated given our circumstances. Brian was able to help us find a home to purchase and we were able to place a contingent contract on the home predicated on the sale of our existing home. However, the true test for Brian and my family came soon enough. My condition worsened and we were forced to schedule my surgery sooner than anticipated. Just as I was leaving for surgery in New York City, Brian found a buyer for our home! We knew we could trust Brian to negotiate the contract on our behalf so we cut him loose to do so with my husband communicating with Brian on important decisions over text messages and the occasional phone call. Our home went under contract on the day I was in surgery and we closed on the sale of our home and the purchase of our new home just 6 short days after my return to Austin from the surgery.
While this experience was challenging for me and my family, I am truly blessed to be in my new home while recovering from my surgery. We are thankful and relieved that we had a trustworthy and reliable REALTOR® in Brian Talley working with us through this process. We recommend Brian Talley and Regent Property Group without hesitation to anyone in need of an Austin real estate professional for buying or selling a home or for those in need of Austin commercial real estate. I have to admit that I had extremely high expectations for Brian when he began working with me, and I’m pleased to confirm that Brian has proved his worth without a doubt.
I found Brian Talley of Regent Property Group just at the right time. I had been searching online for homes in the downtown and surrounding central area for months and had seemingly exhausted my search. Needless to say, I was having a very difficult time finding a spacious condo in close proximity to downtown at a good price. After finding Regent Property Group’s website and conducting a property search, I was contacted by Brian Talley asking how he could be of assistance to me with my search. Brian proceeded to re-run my search parameters to be sure I was not missing any properties available that would fit my needs. Although he came up with many of the same properties I had already seen, he did find a few additional properties for my consideration.
Over the next several days Brian and I toured these properties and even sat at a local Starbucks to review the comparables in the area. To my delight we were able to find a “fixer upper” that was in a great location with a price tag that was achievable, and in a condition that needed only about $10K worth of work that I could take care of on my own before moving in. We quickly put the condo under contract and were on our way to closing when I found out that I couldn’t get financing through traditional means due to factors related to the condo conversion status of the property. However, we were able to find a good lender who could make it happen and we were able to close quickly.
The entire process from my first contact with Brian Talley until the date of purchase of the condo was 48 days, quite a short timeframe given the work that had to be done to make it all happen and given the fact that this all happened over the holidays. As a matter of fact, our closing date turned out to be on Christmas Eve! As I reflect on all of this, I’m very thankful to have connected with Brian Talley of Regent Property Group because it led to my finding the home I was looking for on the timeframe that I required. Brian was very knowledgeable about the purchase process, was always accessible, and was a true professional. It is my pleasure to recommend Brian Talley and Regent Property Group to anyone looking for a solid and trustworthy real estate agent in Austin, Texas.
I found Regent Property Group online when searching for a home in Austin. After registering on the Regent website to conduct an Austin home search, I was quickly contacted by Brian Talley who was kind enough to tour me through some homes within a few short days. It didn’t take long to find what I was looking for and with Brian’s help, I was able to place a condo under contract within 2 weeks of my initial contact with Regent. The contract process was smooth sailing and we were able to close on the purchase of the condo in just under three weeks. Throughout this entire process Brian was always accessible, informative, and was excellent with follow-up. I don’t recall having any issues that were not dealt with immediately to my satisfaction. I’m happy to recommend Brian Talley of Regent Property Group to anyone conducting an Austin home search.

“When searching for properties online, we ran across a home for sale on Brian Talley’s website (www.searchaustinhomes.com). We inquired about the home and Brian diligently responded with the offer to not only show us the home we inquired about, but to show us other homes that worked for us. Furthermore, Brian offered to get us setup directly in the MLS where he entered our detailed search criteria into the system and emailed us a link to our own web portal where we were able to view homes that fit our search criteria. Within this portal we were able to organize our listings according to our preferences with the ability to delete listings that didn’t work for us and enabling us to tag the listings we liked as “Possibilities” or “Favorites” in the system. Although we met Brian online, we were in a hurry to find a home so we decided to take a risk by working with a real estate agent that we did not already know. Fortunately for us, Brian turned out to be extremely professional, experienced, and trustworthy. We were able to find a home that we liked and with Brian’s help, we were able to negotiate a good deal on the home. During the entire process Brian Talley was constantly available, patient with our needs and requests, quick to respond, and helpful in getting us through the entire purchase process. As a result, we are happy to give Brian Talley our full endorsement as an excellent real estate agent for those buying or selling a home in Austin.”

“I accepted a new job in Austin at the beginning of the summer. We needed to relocate from Dallas to Austin in a very short amount of time in order to get our youngest child into a good school by the end of the summer while my family remained in Dallas and I traveled over seas. This was not going to be fun or easy. Our desire was to get a home in the “hill country” that was close to downtown and in a great school district. A good friend suggested we call Brian Talley at Regent Property Group.
Brian knows everything you would want to know about Austin. His attention to detail is nothing short of amazing. Brian sent us homes to review via email prior to my arrival in Austin. He had scouted out 4 areas for us to look at homes that matched our criteria. We were able to pare down the list before I arrived in town. When I looked at the homes selected on line, Brian showed them in the context of value, commute, schools and the ambiance of the general area where they were located. Having everything lined up like that was invaluable given the time we had to make a decision.
My wife came down to Austin the next weekend to review the homes I had selected from the ones Brian had shown me; from that list my wife and I selected our favorite three homes. We selected a target home and two back up choices. Brian’s knowledge of real estate values in the different areas we were looking put everything into a context that was quite helpful in making a decision on a home that matched our desires and that would likely continue to appreciate in value.
Brian’s attention to detail creates a sense of ease with the process. He has a network of inspectors and contractors for getting a critical evaluation of the property, what improvements needed to be done to move in and who was the best choice to do the work. He has mortgage brokers to work with if there is a need. So we had our first choice under contract at a very fair price and both my wife and I were out of town. No reason to panic as our closing day quickly approached.
To make a long story short, I returned to Austin to close. Brian had the entire schedule of contractors laid out for me and work started the following day so everything was done by the time my family joined me in Austin. Our son is in the school we had targeted and the house is mid way between my office and my wife’s office. Most importantly, we have our home in the “hill country”. That was quite a change from the view we had in Dallas of our neighbors’ fences.
I am looking forward to recommending Brian Talley and the Regent Property Group to my friends and colleagues who may be relocating to Austin or within Austin. He made what seemed to be a very difficult and stressful experience a very smooth transition.”
Brian Talley of Regent Property Group is a knowledgeable professional who considers your situations his own. I had the pleasure of working with Brian to help find Austin office space. He took the daunting market that is Austin and made it make sense. Throughout the process, Brian brought us option after option but always looked at them through our eyes – what was best for our business, future growth, location, value and what the property could do for our business and our employees. It was a great experience.
I’ll admit it – I hate Austin real estate shopping, but Brian Talley made it as painless as possible. You know what else was great? Integrity. Brian Talley is a man you can trust. I’ve worked with snakes before. Brian ain’t one of ’em. While helping us find Austin office space, Brian also helped my wife and I settle an issue we had with the purchase of our private residence – something he offered up his time to help with because he is a nice guy who uses his resources to help his clients and friends. Bottom line, if you’re looking for Austin office space or for someone to help you buy or sell a home, let Brian take care of you

My wife and I are so grateful for Brian Talley and his many hours of patience in our Austin home search. Brian was endlessly patient as we toured dozens of houses over a 5 month period. He played the role of a student who truly learned our likes, dislikes, needs, and wants. We never felt like he was pushing us to jump into a house that didn’t fit our desires. We truly felt like he understood who we are and what we wanted in a house. When appropriate, in order to clear any of our confusion or questions, he gave his expert opinion, but it never felt like he was trying to just close a deal.
Once we found the right house Brian acted fast to negotiate a below market deal while managing a major time crunch on our hands. Our house in Waco was selling in 7 days and we were without housing after that point in time. Furthermore, our kids were to start school the same week of our move from Waco to Austin so we were faced with having to find temporary housing in Austin while our kids attended their first day of school in a new city without certainty that they would even stay at that school once we found a home.
Fortunately, Brian was able to negotiate a contract that put us in a new house right in time at a price that was well under the current market value. He was able to get us in the house in a short 7 days and we closed 7 days later. The move-in date was after inspections, before school, and on the same day we moved from Waco! To make all of this happen we were able to leverage Brian’s negotiating experience and his reliable contacts (mortgage lender, home inspectors, other home contractors, etc.) enabling us to experience a seamless purchase process without a glitch. I’m not sure the outcome would have been the same with a less experienced real estate agent.
We would highly and without hesitation recommend Brian Talley of Regent Property Group to any of our friends. We can confidently say that they will be pleased with his services.

When my wife and I decided to sell our home in Austin we used Brian Talley to represent us as our listing agent. I have known Brian for 17 years, and that combined with his excellent reputation and many years experience in real estate made him the obvious choice for us.
We needed to sell our home quickly and for a price that was in a specific range and Brian helped make it happen for us. Within less than ten days of listing our home on the market we received multiple offers. Brian negotiated expertly and as a result all of our home selling wishes were met. His knowledge skills helped the process to go as smoothly as I could have ever imagined. We were so pleased with his work that we would recommend Brian Talley and Regent Property Group to anyone with a home buying or selling need.
