Whether you're looking for a house on Lake Austin or a one bedroom apartment on West Campus, Carvajal Group's comprehensive, advanced search capabilities can help you narrow down a list of leasing properties that meet your needs. Think you've already found the place you want to live? Let us negotiate for you. Seeking commercial property for lease? That's a slightly different process, so give us a call at 512.419.7770 and we'll help you find what you're looking for. If you're an investor seeking tenants, please visit our Asset Management section.

Why do you need a real estate agent if you can find a deal on Craigslist or walk into the leasing office of an apartment complex? Because we're on your side every step of the way, and finding your ideal place to live is only step one. We make sure you get the best deal, you sign the right paperwork and that you're set up to get that hefty deposit back. Read more about the entire leasing process - from search to contract - in Six Steps to Leasing.

Our commitment is to be your advocate through every step of the process. Here are all the things we'll help you with:

  • Determining your key criteria
  • Narrowing down your list of ideal properties
  • Scheduling showings
  • Providing our opinions (only when requested, of course) on the advantages and deficiencies of your short-list
  • Completing any necessary offer or application paperwork
  • Negotiating lease terms
  • Reviewing final documentation before signing
  • Completing the necessary walk-through paperwork to get your deposit back when it's time to move out
  • Supplying the requisite bottle of wine or another beverage of choice to celebrate your close!
  • Recommending a mover and any other service provider you need to get you settled into your new place.
