"Ms. Tracy Picone has helped us buy two homes and sell two homes over the last 15 years. She has been the perfect person to help in this process. She is very hard-working, extremely honest and always available. She has great intuition on what a family would enjoy, and unparalleled expertise in the local Austin market. She has tremendous experience and a large network of subcontractors. Tracy gets the job done!! We have also appreciated Tracy‘s guidance that has helped us financially come out ahead in these transactions. Our family owes a whole lot to Tracy and her company." - Anbu M & Juhana K
"While selling my house in a tricky Austin market, Beth, Tracy and their team were exceptional. They went above and beyond anything I have ever experienced or could have expected. My only regret is that I moved out of Austin because I would never want to work with anyone but them in the future!" - Natalie M
"My experience working with Tracy Picone was wonderful! She is a true professional. Tracy really listened to me and selected several great options for me to choose from. Her experience as a relator and her foresight in covering all the bases showed when she was able to create an opportunity for me to purchase a home that I might not have been able to get without her. The entire process was seamless. I am very pleased with Tracy and have already recommended her to several friends." - Sarah H
"Tracy was an amazing find. She helped us quickly and efficiently navigate the Austin market when we moved in from out of town." - Ryan T
"We recently used Tracy Picone as our Realtor for our home purchase in Austin, and simply put, Tracy is outstanding. To say she exceeded our expectations is an understatement. Tracy went and continued to go above and beyond for us. Our home search experience was top notch from the first moment we met with her. At our first meeting, she was prepared with a sizable focused list of homes for us to see and they were all specified to what we told her our wants and needs were. We spent days together, including searching with our kids. We were from out of state, so we had a somewhat limited time frame from which to find a home, and Tracy hit it out of the park. She is not only personable and a pleasure to work with, but extremely thorough. Tracy took care of every aspect of every detail and thought of things we would never have thought of. If we ever need a Realtor again in the future, there is no question we will be using Tracy. If friends or family need a Realtor in the Austin area, we will most certainly refer them to Tracy with our strongest endorsement. Tracy found us our dream home, and we made a new friend in the process!" - David & Beth R
"I had the good fortune of having both Tracy Picone represent me on the sale of the home. It was so helpful to have both Tracy (with whom we've worked before) and Shannon, who lives in the neighborhood and could pop in at the house whenever needed. Both did an outstanding job from start to finish. From the initial contracts, the pricing to preparing the house to go on the market, the advising on service professionals for cleaning and repairs, managing the offers and all the way to the final closing they did a great job. They are professional, diplomatic, savvy about the market, on top of every detail, very responsive, and fun to work with. I also had great support from the Realty Austin staff. The process went quickly, smoothly, and we got a fair price and a satisfied buyer." - Becky A
"I would highly recommend Tracy to everyone. She is the best realtor I've ever worked with - hands down. She made sure I was fully educated on the market, the residential areas and the listings so that when the right house came on the market we were able to jump on it and secure it for the best price. She went the extra mile to also educate me on the schools - even arranging a lunch with her own daughter who attends Westlake High School so my daughter could meet her and ask her questions. She has taken care of everything that related to the closing and post-closing process. She sent me important reminders along the way when there was something I had to do and she seemed to do the rest, even helping me find and meet with various contractors who could do some renovation work.
Tracy is not only smart, professional and highly competent, but she is also extremely honest, kind and fun. I value those qualities so much and she has them in spades. Thank you for allowing me to express my opinions regarding Tracy. As you can see from the above, I am extremely satisfied." - Anne F
"We can't be happier to recommend Tracy Picone, Broker! She went above and beyond to help us ready our property for sale, and then brought us a buyer before we even officially hit the market! And when it sold fast, she even called to schedule the movers for us! She knows the market and the real estate community. You can't go wrong with Tracy on your team" - Elizabeth F
"We worked with Tracy Picone of Realty Austin to both sell our house in Westlake and purchase a condo downtown and would not hesitate to recommend her - and have already done so several times. She is always prepared, professional and thorough; she does her research, asks the right questions, listens and follows up. The fact that she is always positive and fun is a bonus!" - Tracey N
"Tracy proved to be exactly the agent we needed to help us make the challenging "downsize" move. She expertly staged our home for sale, and had us do a pre-inspection to eliminate any concerns of would-be buyers. She marketed the home in a way to maximize the initial impact of the home hitting the market. And she was there every step of the way through the sale. She also worked to understand what we were looking for in our next home. She was never tired of showing us potential homes, and she encouraged us to look beyond the current condition of the home and see the home as it could be. We would highly recommend Tracy to be your real estate agent." - Michael & Ann W
"Tracy Picone is an excellent Realtor. She guided us through the entire process effortlessly. She was always available to us and provided great advice and help. She even had great referrals for work needed on our house. I would highly recommend Tracy to anyone. Tracy went above and beyond to help us sell our house in an extremely short time. Very little pain and great results." - Vsholt
"Tracy was the BEST. We really appreciated her proactive involvement in helping us present the home and handling so many matters related to the sale and closing. She was a godsend and pleasure to work with." - Mark M
Tracy’s parents owned a retail furniture store adjacent to their home near Rochester, New York, so she grew up surrounded by lovely furnishings; learning the magic of arrangement and décor at a young age. Naturally when helping to sell a home, Tracy embraces the process of moving furniture and accessories to present the best possible first impression to her listings.
Attending the University of Michigan, Tracy received her Bachelors of Business Administration with a major in Marketing. After graduating, Tracy worked with small businesses, helping them to market themselves through customized radio campaigns and later, as an account executive and sales manager for local radio stations. During these years, she and her family moved from Detroit to Madison to Syracuse before landing in Austin in 2002. Soon after, she began selling real estate.
Sellers appreciate Tracy’s true marketing professionalism as she thoroughly analyzes all of the variables, (external and internal) affecting the marketing of her client’s home, over and above the traditional Comparative Market Analysis (CMA). When representing buyers, Tracy is tireless in searching for the “needle in the haystack”. She understands the importance of her job and that many clients want to see absolutely every option before making this momentous decision. The reward is seeing her buyers settle happily into their new space.
Tracy’s client base loves the fact that she combines her 25 years of marketing experience with her passion for design and use of space. This rare blend has earned Tracy both her real estate and her brokers license, made her a Certified Luxury Home Marketing Specialist, as well as a member of the Million Dollar Guild.
In her free time, she plays soccer in the Austin Women’s Soccer League, coaches girls soccer, and water-skis and surfs on Lake Austin with the women in Ignite. She volunteers at Westlake School, and with the Eanes Education Foundation. She enjoys travel and special times with her husband and three daughters.
