Four years ago my wife and I decided to move from Round Rock to Dripping Springs. We asked the Keller Williams Realtor who was selling our Round Rock home, if she knew of any Realtors in the Dripping Springs area. She did not, did some research, and advised one name kept coming up, Gary Steele. When we met with Gary, we sat down and discussed what we were wanting in a home, as well as our maximum budget. Gary showed us several properties in our price range. However, we did not see anything that we wanted to buy. We began to discuss increasing our budget and told Gary. He reminded us why we set our maximum budget where we did, and assured us something would become available in our price range. He never once showed us a property above the maximum budget, and there were several available; and he was right. Within a week or two, a property became available that met all our criteria. Gary was with us at the walk through and at closing, but it hasn’t stopped there. He keeps in touch, sending information that he feels we should be aware of. We have contacted him regarding local service providers and he is always responsive. I would highly recommend Gary.

My husband and I first met Gary Steele in 1997 when were were purchasing our second home in Southwest Austin. He was at that time, the seller’s agent on the other side of the table. During the course of that transaction, we were continuously amazed at how much he was doing for his client. He was efficient, punctual and always true to his client’s needs and specifications. His manner was calm and steadfast, coupled with a level of knowledge and honesty which were lacking in our own agent. We found ourselves constantly comparing our rather ineffective realtor to Gary. There was no comparison! My husband and I agreed that if we ever needed a realtor again, Gary Steele was our man.
As it turned out, we did need a realtor again, actually many times! Here in 2016, we find ourselves some eleven transactions down the road, all handled by Gary Steele. He has been through all sorts of situations with us, many of them more than just a bit complicated. Regardless of hurdles or stones in his path, Gary always handles things with a seemingly effortless grace. He rises to every challenge, ever our advocate. Words can never express our gratitude. He has adapted to our wants and needs without question, never ceasing until he finds our latest concept of the perfect home.
Gary has created an amazing team over the years. The Steele Action Team has been personally handpicked to implement and uphold his own extremely high standards. Nearly twenty years after initially coming into contact with him, it is comforting to know that despite his success, he is still the same reliable, extremely driven agent to his vast array of clientele. We ALWAYS recommend him to family and friends if they lament over a house they just can’t sell or a property they can’t seem to locate. Our advice is always the same. It’s very simple. Gary Steele can do it. He is the very BEST. If you haven’t been using Gary Steele, you’ve been using the wrong agent!

We appreciated Gary Steele’s professionalism and expediency…his marketing strategy sold the house in 9 days!!
The Cox Family
My husband and I recently had the pleasure of working with Gary Steele in the sale of our home in Dripping Springs. This is the second time that we had contacted Gary regarding a move. The first time, we made the decision not to move but it was then that we knew that if we ever decided to sell, Gary would be our realtor. Throughout the entire process, Gary and his assistant, Carol Brown, made the hectic pace of the move more manageable. From the beautiful video that so effectively marketed our property to the day we closed, we knew that we were working with professionals who knew their trade well. Their personalized approach should be the kind of experience anyone who is considering selling their some seeks.
The Armstrong Family
Gary is the master of real estate! We needed to sell our property in The Preserve after my husband took a job out of state. It was during the housing down-turn, and proved quite challenging — that is, to make it happen without taking a loss. So, we decided to lease our home, which dragged on for a number of years. Then, when the market came back to a healthier state — a truly thriving state — we called Gary again and started the process of sprucing up our property so that it would attract the sort of buyer we needed. That wasn’t easy! Gary knows what it takes to show a home at its very best, and after several tenants in our house, lots of work was needed to get sparkling again. But, he didn’t mince words when working through the extensive punch list with us, and we addressed all the renovations he recommended. In the end, we received a very amenable offer, and the property sold! I’m sure he was glad to finally complete our sale, as were we to finally be freed up to completely relocate to our new state.
We are grateful to Gary for his persistence in working with us, and for not letting us lose our potential buyer when we finally had them on the hook! Many thanks to you, Gary, for all your diligence and patience! May you have 25 more years of fruitful real estate marketing! Merry Christmas!
The Kaman Family
Gary made finding a place easy! When we got to town he had refined our original list of ranches, scratched the ones he knew wouldn’t work, and added a few more options we hadn’t come across. Of course the perfect place was the last one that was shown to us that day!
Gary was a great help in getting settled and was at the ranch to receive our car that was shipped ahead of us. It was clean and waiting in the garage for us upon arrival. He was a big help as well for all the other details related to closing and move in that always seem to slide by you when you have 100 things on your mind.
Gary, thanks again and congratulations.
The Graham Family
Congratulations Gary, in 25 years you have practically built the real estate market in Dripping Springs! Thanks for helping us to sell our house and find our new home!
You are a real pro!
The Weston Family
We haven’t known Gary for as long as most of his clients have, we started a relationship with him 2 years ago while we were living 6 hours away. We wanted to find a community to raise our young children in, where they would be in a good public school district as well as a community with strong Christian values. Since we met Gary, we have completed three real estate closings with him and we are currently working on our fourth. We have plans for more in the future. Gary is honest and knowledgeable about the real estate market. He knows when to make an offer and when to wait. When we saw our marketing package on a house we were selling, I was blown away. Very professional, and precise attention to detail. Our house was not predicted to sell for at least 90 days due to the price range, but instead it sold in three weeks with a full price offer, which I attribute to marketing package Gary created. In addition, Gary has a great team of associates whom know how to take care of business, and they do it very quickly. In real estate time is of the essence. Thanks Gary for all you have done for our family, we love our home and most importantly we love watching our girls enjoy their new home.
The Stoneff Family
In the past 2 years I have done 3 transactions with Gary Steele and I think I have benefited greatly from his 25 years of experience. Life and experience have taught me to respect talent and integrity. Buying or selling, every move I need to make is anticipated and the process is seemingly effortless. I have recommended Gary Steele to people I know only because negotiating a sales price or purchase price I believe he
has always represented my interest. Thank you!
The Woodgate Family
I have known Gary Steele since 2001, my wife and I have made use of his services to sell and buy two properties. As a person, he is a responsible, courteous, and we consider him a good friend. Professionally, Gary and the Steele Action Team work well, especially in the difficult home market we have seen over the past few years. He has given us good advice in good and in difficult times, and we are entirely satisfied with his services. We recommend Gary and the Steele Action Team without reservations.
The Fretwell Family
Three years ago, my wife and I discovered an abandoned and poorly maintained home in Meadow Oaks. Gary had his sign in the yard, so we called and got the story. Gary was not only quick to respond, but he also looked at our existing home in West Cave Estates to help us determine what needed to be done to make it “sale ready”, as we had no intention of moving until we saw the possibilities the Meadow Oaks home had to offer.
In short, Gary worked hard for us…finding repair people and get ready people to make our West Cave home in shape for selling, while at the same time working closely with us and the owner of the Meadow Oaks home to make the transition as quick and easy as possible.
Gary and his group are the folks to call when you need a coordinated buy/sell transaction conducted with openness, fairness and honesty.
Congrats Gary, on 25 years of giving to your community!
The Cunningham Family
Thank you for doing such an excellent job selling our house. We appreciated your diligence and expert effort to get us a fair price. You did all the “extra” things that an agent does to officially call a SELLERS agent. You never compromised that client/agent trust. We would be glad to refer you to any of our friends.
The Moe Family
Thank you for the fine help you gave us in selecting our home in Austin. We are appreciative of the time and effort you spent with us in searching for homes and for taking us on the many real estate appointments and tours. We have great confidence in you and your abilities. Your advice has been valuable in the various aspects of the transaction and in solving some of the immediate issues we faced.
The Cohen Family
After several unsuccessful attempts to sell our home, we decided to switch real estate agents. We decided to go with Gary Steele for various reasons, one being his long experience as an agent in the greater Austin area. Our experience with Gary was extremely positive throughout the entire process of marketing our home, start-to-finish.
He was able to quickly assess the profile of our property, our specific needs from a financial perspective and design a marketing plan that was in sync with the extremely challenging market conditions of the day. Gary’s use of all the sales techniques and tools available combined with pure “hustle” to bring our family a deal that made good business sense was what clearly made the difference in our experience. We are very pleased with the results we got from the transaction of our old home and would enthusiastically recommend Gary Steele to others as well as use him again should future needs to buy or sell other real estate arise.
