    About Me

    As an agent who's an expert in his areas, Herb brings a wealth of knowledge and expertise about buying and selling real estate here. It's not the same everywhere, so you need someone you can trust for up-to-date information. I am eager to serve you. Here are some of the things I can do for you:
    Find Your Next Home
    You need someone who knows this market inside and out! and has a plan. I can work with you to find the right home at the right price for you, including all the neighborhood amenities that matter.
    Sell a Home
    When it's time to move, you need someone who will advertise your home, show to prospective buyers, negotiate the purchase contract, oversee the inspections, handle all necessary paperwork and supervise the closing. I can take care of everything you need, from start to close.
    Oftentimes buyers don't visualize living in your home the way you do. I can make your home attractive to its ideal audience - which can help you get top dollar. Things like staging the home, making repairs or minor improvements, or even simply painting the walls can be the difference between a home resting on the market and one that's sold fast.

    Herb is incredibly knowledgeable about the home buying process. We are first time home buyers and he made us feel much more comfortable through each stage. He was patient and accommodating, as well as being highly responsive. We would absolutely use his services again or recommend him to anyone looking to buy a home.

    Herb was extremely knowledgeable about the Austin real estate market and we could not have chosen a better agent. He listened to our needs/wants and helped us find the ideal home. Relocating from the Midwest, we also were educated by Herb about real estate transactions and regulations in Texas. We really appreciated Herb's responsiveness when we had questions about next steps from 1,000 miles away. Working with Herb was a terrific experience.

    Herb went above and beyond for us in our efforts to not only purchase a new house, but to also sell the house and land where we were living. Herb made the transition for us much more comfortable than it could have been. We were downsizing and the task, too often, seemed formidable. Herb was very patient. He offered sound suggestions whenever we seemed to be floundering. Herb provided a tremendous amount of support, reassurance and understanding. He is a great problem solver and is able to diplomatically redirect irrational thinking. Herb went the extra mile(s) for us on so many different levels. I am not sure that we could have this positive outcome without his involvement. Herb is an all round "can do" sort of fellow that is honest, positIve, and hard working. We enjoyed being in his company as well as all of the proffessionalism he had to offer. Herb appears to never experience a bad day. He always seemed to be very happy. It is very clear that Herb enjoys his work very much, which may explain the reason for Herb to be exceptionally good at what he does. Herb is the person that people always hope to have on their team. Through his loyalty, dedication and hard work, Herb makes the company shine.

    Herb is by far the best agent I have ever worked with. I have bought and sold more than 20 properties what he did for me went far above my expectation. He is very knowledgeable and professional, He helped me get my property ready for sale. He did an excellent job in getting property closed when it looked like the buyer will opt out. The closing was easy and with out any issues. I was more than satisfied. He definitely earned his commission on my deal. I really think he deserved much more. He will be the only agent I will work with in Austin area.

    Wow, were we lucky! We relocated from Maui to Austin and began looking at ranch properties before arriving here. Talked with many disappointing agents along the way and then we contacted Herb. Immediately recognized his HIGH level of expertise and professionalism. He did not disappoint! He was relentless in helping us find just the right property. He went above and beyond '”- plus he's a really nice guy. Herb is definitely the agent you've been hoping to find!!!!

    Simply put, our experience with Herb was great! He really listens to embrace our wants and needs and then goes to work to make sure those wants and needs are met. He made himself available whenever we needed him and worked tirelessly to make sure we got just the house we wanted. Herb takes a lot of pride in his work and is truly a professional dedicated to his craft and it shows. We would highly recommend him to anyone and you will not be disappointed, I promise you that.

    I had many anxieties and knowledge deficits as a first time buyer and Herb was able to patiently answer every question I had. He made himself available whenever needed and worked tirelessly to get me a in a home I was happy with. Herb was my friend before he was my agent, but transitioned to the perfect mix of guide and consultant during the real estate process and ultimately we closed on a great home and investment property. I am proud to call him my friend and would work with Team Agapetus again anytime!

    We have worked with Herb for about 1 year. What we were looking for was very unique, both in style and options to develop the land. He was the most professional, patient, determined, delightful, knowledgable, kind, and funny agent I have ever worked with. His understanding and perseverance paid off when he had to help the title company as well as our lender through this unique process. I thought we might have driven him crazy throughout the year when different options came up and then didn't work out. But he never got frustrated or irritated (at least he never let us know if he was). I can say it was hard on all of us but Herb guided and patiently directed us as the year drug on. I would recommend him to anyone. I say give the man a raise! He deserves it.

    Herb is a great guy. His experience was very helpful. Being a first time seller I had tendencies to get a little nervous/excitable at times. He handled that well. He went way out of his way once while during the moving process I locked myself out. I saw his lockbox and contacted him to inquire about access to the key in the lockbox. That wasn't possible but he volunteered and drove 45 minutes from his home to let me in. Talk about exceed expectations! I would highly recommend. Thanks!

    My husband and I started our search for a retirement home over a year ago. We had ranch property we needed to sell before buying another property. Herb would send me updates on properties for sell in the central Texas region where we were interested in retiring. We sold our ranch Sept 15th of this year and were now ready to buy. We ask Herb to send us sellers disclosure statements, septic and well inspection reports on properties we had found online. He was very prompt in getting this information which saved us time on our decision on some properties not to physically go and see because of the information in the sellers statements We narrowed it down to 4 properties from San Marcos, Dripping Springs, Wimberley and Spicewood. We were able to see all in one day. Herb was very knowledgeable about things to do in the area and provided us a folder with this info. When we decided on one of the properties he took us to see he helped us negotiate an acceptable price along with some of the sellers personal property to convey. Herb helped negotiate and option period to take the house off the market so we could get inspections done on the house. Herb lined up vendors for Home Inspection, septic inspection and well inspections in the time frame needed. Herb advised us what the state rules were for homestead exemption and that what we paid for the property was private. I would highly recommend Herb to anyone looking for a real estate agent.

    It was truly an honor working with Herb and can’t thank him enough for his expertise and assistance during our 1st time home buying experience. Herb was very resourceful, informative and accommodating. He consistently communicated with us of any updates and always took the time to inform us of all of the options that we could explore before making any final decision. This truly was an essential part of the process. I know there were times my husband and I felt like we were being either difficult or indecisive during the decision making process, but Herb was there for us, NO MATTER WHAT. He was super patient (which I am grateful for) an expert in the area and always gave us the best advice. With that being said,…. If anyone needs help with finding the right realtor to work with - PLEASE work with Herb. You can thank us for the recommendation later. ;)

    Robert gave Herb 5 stars out of 5
    6 stars! We couldn't recommend Herb highly enough. My wife and I had only 6-days in the U.S. to find our next home before we had to return overseas and with Herb's help we found it in two. Because we had made contact ahead of time and utilized the online features of Zip Realty to indicate our home preferences, Herb crafted and flexibly executed a well designed plan to maximize our limited time. We saw 11 homes in 2 days and Herb narrowed the focus of our search with each home, as he better learned our tastes and desires. We found the perfect home for our family in that 11th home. Herb then smoothly switched gears from helping us locate our home to championing the negotiation and closing processes, which went smoothly even though we conducted everything from over 5,000 miles away. Herb is a true professional who goes above and beyond to help out his clients making you feel like he is giving you all of his time, energy and focus...even after the sale. It is obvious he enjoys his job and takes genuine pleasure in helping people find their next home. I would gladly and strongly recommend Herb to anyone contemplating a move to the greater Austin and surrounding area.

    Herb is awesome! He was very professional and always available to talk with us no matter when we needed him. Herb was able to make us feel like we were his only client which was really great. He was also great with our kids. We have a 5 year old and a 2 year old, and looking at houses with little ones is not easy, but Herb kept them occupied while my husband and I looked around while somehow still being able to answer any questions we had! We will definitely be using Herb for any of our future real estate needs.

    Herb is a great guy. Very professional. He helped us buy our new house and sell the old one. He's always available and knowledgeable on both sides. He helped negotiate savings on the buy side and got us more money on the sale side. We already referred him to some friends who are buying and then selling their house as well. Very happy with Herb.

    I can't say enough good things about Herb. I first spoke with him back in 2013 when I was putting my house up for sale in California. I explained that as soon as my home sold I would be moving to the Austin area, and I would be looking for a home to buy. It took longer to sell my home in California than expected, but Herb kept in touch with me the whole time. He always kept me updated on available homes in the area. I moved to Texas in October of 2014 and Herb and I began looking at homes in January. I finally decided to buy land and build. Herb helped every step of the way. I closed on a piece of property earlier this month and hopefully the building of my home will commence within the next month or two. Herb's dedication and professionalism are top notch. I would recommend him to anyone looking for a home or property.

    Herb was the perfect realtor for my husband and I as we went through the steps to buy our first home! He is professional and his extensive knowledge of the processes and procedures was extremely helpful. Despite all of my research on home buying there were several terms that were a little fuzzy. Herb was able to break everything down and explain it to us in layman terms. He was also more than willing to accompany us to multiple homes for visitation and his eye for detail is quite impressive. Herb was great about keeping in contact with us to let us know what stage we were at and what to expect next. Overall the entire home buying process went very smooth up until the day we signed. It was around the holidays and we were trying to sign early so we could move in before Christmas. There was a last minute issue with the bank and we thought we were going to have to delay the closing. It was an extremely stressful but Herb was cool, calm and collected throughout the day. He kept us informed and did everything in his power to assist us through the process. By the end of that day we were one happy couple signing for our first home thanks to Herb!

    herb agapetus is the best! he has been friendly, efficient, knowledgeable, helpful, wise, and smart. i drew two aces on this deal. i started with his wife harmony. she had a baby and quite properly, in my view, handed me off to herb. i think of her in this case as the rain maker. herb more than tolerated my difficult personality, he actually seemed to enjoy being with me as much as i enjoyed being with him. he knows austin and he knows the real estate business. i couldln't have ended up with a more compatible or effective guide than herb. we did this deal partly long distance--i have not moved to austin yet--and partly in person--i visited several times in search of The House. i know it was not easy for him, yet he made it all seem easy. the last time i bought a house was in 1982, so i was much like a first time buyer. herb patiently and competently dealt with all my concerns, both long distance and real time. i clearly lucked out in getting to work with both harmony and herb. so, yes, he gets five stars. he is the best! you didn't ask, but harmony gets five stars too! john h. irsfeld

    Herb came across to me as a dedicated professional. He treated us like it was a million dollar sale. It was far from it. Herb and wife recently had a child and while wife was in the hospital herb still kept in touch whenever we had a problem. I can not tell you enough how glad we were during this buying experience, We would not hesitate to use herb again or to refer him to our friends. The home buying experience is more complicated now a days and without Herbs advice it would have been a nightmare. It makes me proud to know there are still agents out therethat truly care about their clients as Herb does. Sincerely, Capt.Wallace Hogan

All the while, Herb has greeted us with a warm, welcoming smile and steady, thoughtful coaching. We can't wait for our new house and for this man to get his well earned commission!

    This is the second home that we have purchased with Herb and that should say it all! He is very responsive to our input and is always there when we call on him. We never question that he puts our needs first and follows through when we have needed him to 'go the extra mile'.

    We asked Herb to help us find a new home and sell our old one. We were very impressed with his knowledge of the houses and neighborhoods in and around Austin. He handled the entire buying and selling process in a skillful, professional and timely manner. We feel confident in recommending him to others, because we doubt they will find a better real-estate agent than Herb.

    This was my first time to buy a house, and Herb not only made it simple enough for me to understand, but worked very successfully as my advocate during the bidding. He was very patient with all my many questions, and was always very quick to return my call if he was not immediately available. I would have no qualms whatsoever in recommending him to anybody else, and would use him again as my own agent. Unfortunately of course this latter is never going to happen since I'm absolutely delighted with my new home! Thanks, Herb!

    I would highly reccomend Herb Agapetus as an agent. He has so much experience. He is very prefessional and gets back to you in a timely manner. He explained every thing to me that I did not understand. He was always putting me at ease. And most important we got the property that I wanted!

    we worked with Herb for the bette part of a year, trying to find a condo that suited our needs for a second home. I have to praise him for his dedication, patience and flexibity in working with us. We worked him pretty hard, as we really weren't totally certain what nor where we wanted to buy and he showed us homes and codos all over the Austin area. I'm sure he thought we would never settle on one. He was very valuable to us during the entire process which was especially important to us because we had to do all of this from a long distance. Herb was literally our eyes and ears on the ground in Austin. He has been there every step of the way...and continues to help us out as we prepare to move in. You would be lucky to get Herb as your representative when looking for or selling a home. His wife Harmony also assisted extesively in the process which gave us the two for one punch we needed whenever we came to town to look. We owe a lot to them both.

    Herb brought personal and professional skills to our efforts to sell our home and purchase another. He was very understanding of our time-lines and difficulty in moving and, when were absolutely ready, he put the house on the market and had it under contract (with back ups) within two days at a very good price. As different dramas were unfolding in the process of selling/financing/buying Herb was always well informed, a powerful advocate for our interests, and made sure we were always informed about activities. In buying a house Herb, afer only two outings, really came to know us in choosing houses to view - the right look, feel, community, price and all around lifestyle.

    Herb has been very patient and dedicated to me as a customer. The web based tools were perfect for me as someone who was just keeping a pulse on opportunities but not immediately ready to buy. Herb would follow up periodically to ensure that my needs were being met. In the end, we got a phenomenal deal on a lake front lot in Point Venture, exactly what we were searching for. We are a bit disappointed with the way the final negotiations played out as we had a verbal agreement from the seller for a $5K lower amount (due to survey results) but the seller changed his mind before he signed the amendment. I was also frustrated with the fact that the survey came back with much lower square footage than what was advertised, and this was only discovered due to my due diligence. Lot was advertised at 1.6 acres but came in at 1.2 acres. I recognize that the majority of this acreage is below the floodplain but it still represents a significant difference.

    He did everything from making sure the house was received as I expected it to explaining every step of the process and negotiating on my behalf; he even helped me hook up my washer and dryer!

    We are grateful to Herb for guiding us through the system. He was patient with us and taught us a lot which helped dissipate our considerable stress. He made sure we were aware of each step and any changes to proposals/agreements, and explained his reasonings really well. Allayed all our fears.

    Herb is a wonderful Realtor and was awesome at bringing homes to our attention that were in our price range. He was very patient, diligent, and fast acting. As first time home buyers he made us feel comfortable and always kept us informed. He was available according to our schedule and stayed persistent in meeting our demands. I will recommend Herb in the future to anyone I know who may be in the market for a home!
