Born and raised in Austin and the Lake Travis area, Travis Lairsen has been a local Real Estate Agent since 2015. Travis possesses a profound knowledge of the city of Austin and its many surrounding communities and neighborhoods. As a native Austinite, he has extensive connections and terrific access to off-market properties and pocket listings. With wide-ranging experience in residential, multi-family, and lease properties, Travis is a trustworthy and loyal agent who exceeds his client’s expectations.
Travis Lairsen is a current member of the Austin Board of REALTORS®, Texas Association of REALTORS®, and National Association of REALTORS® and a graduate of Texas State University with a bachelor’s degree in advertising. Outside of real estate, Travis enjoys hiking, hunting, traveling, and painting.
Travis Lairsen, of Travis Realty, is not only the best Realtor® in Austin, he is one of the best in the country. We engaged Travis to purchase a home in Austin, while living outside of Texas. Travis not only sent us a listing of available homes that met our criteria, and took us to look for a home each time when we were in Austin, but he also taught us about the neighborhoods in Austin. By the time we purchased a home, we understood the differences in the many areas of Austin and had a great feel for which neighborhoods would suit us best. Travis never pressured us to buy any home and often gave us sensible advice as to why a home that we were interested in might not be a good fit. Lastly, because we were out of town, Travis set us up with contractors to update the home and checked on their progress for us, all at no charge. If you are looking for a Realtor®, you will not find a more honest, hardworking Realtor® in Austin than Travis.— Brian M.
My husband and I recently had the pleasure of working with John to sell our beloved home, and we couldn't be happier with the entire experience. From start to finish, the TRE team was exceptional, making the process stress-free and ultimately rewarding. Right from the first meeting with John, we knew we were in good hands. He arrived fully prepared with a comprehensive market analysis, providing us with a clear understanding of the current real estate landscape, and the best approach to pricing our home competitively. Throughout the entire process, John demonstrated his expertise, professionalism, and genuine passion for helping his clients succeed.— Seller
Working with Travis Lairsen of Travis Real Estate made for an exceptional, low-stress home-buying experience! He is extremely knowledgeable about the Austin market; was reliable at each stage of our home search (from showings on the weekend to signing day); and provided objective information throughout the process. He really listens to his clients, distills information, then shows you homes that fit your needs. He was incredibly prompt in his responses to all of our queries, day or night, throughout the house-hunting process. We are so grateful to have had the opportunity to work with him and recommend him highly.— Jeri S.
Travis’ market knowledge is unsurpassed. He listened to all my requirements I had for my future home and was very patient through the process. He was very hands-on throughout the entire process and made several suggestions I didn’t even think of. He was ultimately able to find me what I wanted in the price range I needed to be in. His attention to detail and follow-up was extremely welcome in what was sometimes an overwhelming process. If you are looking for professionalism, market knowledge, and attention to detail, Travis is your agent.— Chris F.
When it came time to negotiate offers, John proved his skills flawlessly. He expertly navigated the negotiation process, securing a deal that not only met our financial goals but also ensured a smooth and timely closing. We felt confident in his abilities and were thrilled with the outcome. The closing process was seamless, thanks to the efficiency of the Travis Real Estate team. They guided us through each step, ensuring that all necessary documents were in order, and kept us informed throughout the final stages of the transaction.— Buyer
Selling a home can be an emotional journey, but with John’s support and expertise, it turned into a gratifying and unforgettable experience. We can't thank John and the entire team enough for their hard work, dedication, and professionalism.

They made all the difference in the world, and we are incredibly grateful for their exceptional service.— Seller

I moved out of Austin and left Travis Lairsen with two homes to sell. Neither of them were very straightforward conventional deals and I was certain that both were going to fall apart at points.
