James was very professional and had our best interest in mind when buying a new home in a fluctuating market. He also helped facilitate the sale of two of our other homes. We were very happy with his services and knowledge of the real estate market in Austin.

I first contacted James about a year ago. I was currently living/working out of state and looking for the perfect retirement location. He escorted me around the Austin area - pointed out areas of interest, recommended local restaurants, events, and attractions while filling me in on the various neighborhoods and the real estate market in the area. And while I didn't need much of a "push", he was instrumental in selling me on the benefits of Austin life. He continued to send regular e-mails throughout the year showing me statistics on some listed properties that met my general requirements and updates on changes in the dynamic Austin real estate market in general. When I finally retired and made the move to Texas, he was on hand to assist me in getting trough the pre approval process. He maintained a constant search of listings as soon as they hit the market and basically held my hand throughout the entire process. I can't begin to express my gratitude. He made the process flow smoothly, kept me informed and on track ever step of the way.

James DeLoney was awesome. We really enjoyed working with him. He is more than a real estate agent to us; he is a friend. We will certainly recommend James!

Carl Mattoon

We are living in our dream house thanks to James DeLoney. When our banking fell through at the 11th hour, James really went out of his way to save the day for us. We would highly recommend him for any of your real estate needs.

I will happily recommend James to any friends or family that are thinking of purchasing a home. He was extremely knowledgeable, helpful, professional, prompt and working with him was a great pleasure.

Felisa Thibodeaux

We've used James to buy two houses and sell one over the last 8 years. His two best qualities: customer service and negotiation. James has become a good friend, but those two qualities are what will bring us back to him when it's time to buy or sell again.

Brandon Turner

James was extremely professional and dedicated to finding us a family home. He was more than willing to work around our schedule on evenings and weekends to go look at houses. We were impressed by his thoroughness and commitment to us as a client and ended up getting a great home.

Collin O'Shea

James is one the best realtors you can wish for. His honest opinion and knowledge helped us to make best possible decision regarding our purchase. His patient and his dedication brought us comfort and peace of mind to find the best possible house. He follows up throughout the process and responds to all questions in minimum possible time. We loved his straightforward answers and ethical standards. If you are looking for someone to find you your dream house he is the one.

I have had interactions with many real estate agents during my time as a real estate investor and I can honestly say that James is the most knowledgeable and professional real estate agent that I have worked with.  I actually met James when he was representing the buyer for a property I was selling.  I was very impressed with the way he handled the transaction and his knowledge of the local market so I decided to stay in touch with him and use him to represent me while buying a home.  We closed on my new home less than a month ago and James helped my get a great deal on a house in South Austin in exactly the location I was wanting for much less than I was expecting to pay.  I was very busy with work at the time so it was reassuring to know that James was in charge of every step of the process and kept up with all the important dates so that I didn't have to worry about anything.  I plan to do business with James again in the near future and I recommend him to anyone I know who is looking to buy or sell a property in Austin!!

Having known James DeLoney for twenty years, I can say that his strengths as a human being carry over well in his approach to real estate: diversely educated, high character, integrity, and honor, and a level of empathy that allows him to assess needs and preferences on an individual basis, creating a personable one on one approach that favors the client.

Josh Haefner

James was a fabulous help to me in my most recent home purchase. He screened all the houses and only sent those links that fit my criteria. Then when we found a great match, James advised a strategy to make my offer appealing to the seller with multiple offers pending. He recommended an experienced home inspector that was super reasonable and helped me to select those items for the seller to fix without alienating them. James sent a helpful timeline and list of numbers so I could complete all the necessary details before closing. It was a super easy close thanks to his guidance. I would recommend James to anyone buying in this "hot" market....you need a pro to compete and close the deal.

Clare Branson

James couldn't have been a bigger help than he was. Very knowledgeable about he entire process and walked us through each step. Made a very big step in our lives feel like it was the easiest thing we ever did. If you need a house in the greater Austin area James is the man you need to see.

Sean Briones

James DeLoney sold a house for us in December of 2009. The market had just hit rock bottom, we were stubborn about our asking price (yet needed a quick sale), and it was the dead of winter. Despite it all, James rose to the challenge, holding multiple open houses and marketing our sale at every opportunity. The house sold in a timely manner and at the price we wanted. 

James knows the Austin real estate market, he listens to his clients, and he rises to whatever the situation may be to satisfy his clients. He is my Realtor and I recommend him without hesitation.

Jay Jones

James is the best agent we could have wished for! He does care about his clients. He will not only get you the best deal but he will work with you in everything you need. Thanks to him we got the best rate in the market for our mortgage, a smoking house for a smoking price, he saved us from bad investments and guided us throughout the whole process. While other agents did not even seemed interested in hearing our needs, James took the challenge and worked with us, he went out of his way many times. He understands any real estate process is stressful and eases it with hi awesome communication skills, he will keep you informed about anything you need. He will not let you down. He's friendly,knowledgeable and knows how to keep a good fight with the other party. I will keep him in my contacts for any real estate needs for myself, family and friends. Thank you James for helping us find the house of our dreams!


Honestly I don’t know where to start. This guy is AWESOME! The first time I met him to list my house, when I left from that meeting I was sure he was the right person. I was right! James was outstanding. He was knowledgeable. He went above and beyond what I expected. To those of you reading this review I cannot express enough how you will not be disappointed in his service. My house sold in record timing. We came across a little hiccup but with his expertise he was able and knowledgeable of what to do. I was at ease during the entire process. This is your guy pick up the phone and call him now… trust me you will be writing a similar review when it’s all said and done! One last thing. I even cried at closing because as we all know selling a house is a major event in one’s life, and I could not have done this without having someone that truly knows the industry. Once again thank you Mr. DeLoney.

I recently sold my home in Austin, TX - we had our first offer in 4 hours and eventually had five offers, all of them above list price. James DeLoney was my realtor - I'd hire James any day and twice on Sunday. James was very professional, diligent and conscientious. He explained the sales  process very clearly and patiently and guided me thru the updates that my house needed, to be competitive in the marketplace and to get the most sale price. He is very easy to work with - very important for me was the communications - James is very easy to get ahold of (I prefer text and emails - and James was always easy to get ahold of) and his answers were very clear. James and Kim make a great realtor/interior decorator team. Kim helped me pick out the granite countertops, the backsplash, the paint colors and the chandeliers. Both James and Kim were very aware of my budget limits and worked to stay within the limits. Both of them went above and beyond the call of duty (and when I ended up in the hospital due to an injury they even drove me back home from the hospital - bless them for such help). Eventually, we ended up as family friends - that is hard to find these days. James is very detail oriented and will not leave any stone unturned to get the most value. I would wholeheartedly recommend James for any real estate needs, and I'd definitely work with James for my own real estate needs as well

We are moving to Austin Texas from Baltimore Maryland. I had visited Havenpath Realty online. Very quickly I had received a return call from James R DeLoney. I informed him of our plans. HE IS AMAZING. We soon had a trip planned to Austin. He helped us with our hotel and spent a lot of time with us that week. We decided to build a house in Austin while we are still in Baltimore. The only reason that was possible for us to do was because James is helping to oversee the construction project. He guided us to a wonderful builder and has continued to communicate with the builder and my husband and I. We feel as though we are there. This has been such a positive experience for us. Thanks James!!

As a buyers representative James negotiation skills helped tremendously when we were faced with multiple challenges during the contract process. He helped the seller understand the true market value of their property and worked hard to make certain we didn't overpay.

My husband and I had a wonderful experience with James Deloney for our very first home purchase. James met with us in person to walk us through the home buying process, helped narrow down exactly what we were looking for and the best neighborhood for us, toured 20+ homes for over a month and looked at 5+ homes over the course of one weekend with us, resulting in our finding the right one! James was always honest with us on affordability, the neighborhood, schools,
and personal recommendations. We never felt like he was trying to pressure us or steer us in one direction, and we are 100% happy with our house, neighborhood, and final sale price for our Windsor Park home.  James was also exceptionally helpful during the closing process - he walked through our final house selection multiple times with us to insure inspections
had gone well and we were 100% happy with the house and any repairs needed, and he answered any all concerns that came up along the way. My husband and I would highly recommend Realty Austin and James Deloney to anyone with real estate

I had a wonderful experience with James Deloney. He was very professional but very personable. I am a brand new home buyer and considering the time constraint James I were working under, he kept his cool about everything and never stressed about not being able to find a home for me. We searched for homes for a little over a months time, and finally found the perfect one that I closed on recently. James paid close attention to my style, details, and price range. He never showed me anything that was over my budget. He was very honest about the properties and I felt very comfortable asking every possible question I had, even dumb questions! When the lenders would send me paper work to sign, James would run through it first and then explain all the information to me. Whenever we looked at a property together, he was very patient in allowing me to take my time walking around the home, and was very knowledgable and prepared for questions about the property. He was NEVER aggressive or pushed me to like a particular home. He also worked with my parents and was very patient with their demands as well. During our last walk through with the builder, James carefully inspected the home for every little detail and used up more tape than I did! It was so helpful to have an extra set of keen eyes. As a first time home buyer, James really came through for me. I don't think I would have had such an amazing first experience if it had not been for James. I feel as though I have developed a friendship with James and hope to continue to work with him in the future. I would definitely,
absolutely, positively recommend James to any of my friends or colleagues. He is patient, kind, honest, organized, detailed oriented, and fun!

My husband and I recently decided to sell our home. I asked my friend who works for a title company who she would recommend for a realtor. Her answer was " James DeLoney!" My friend was spot on. Mr. DeLony was wonderful. Very professional and knowledgeable! Sold our house in record time for  over asking price. We highly recommend working with James DeLoney!

Rosie McKean

James is running a top notch operation at HavenPath Realty. He helped me get my first house and is helping me find the next one. Mr. DeLoney has driven my family across the city searching for our current property as well as coaching me on the key points to prep a home for sale. His market newsletter is always informative and definitely let me know the market was right for a change of address. Like a true professional James makes realty look easy and I'll never look further than HavenPath for my next home.

Bryan Fontenot

The most wonderful thing...I was provided with a spreadsheet of how and when things would happen. Why doesn't every agent have this....excellent for a very busy person like me that doesn't want to know all the details just what, when and where. Kept me informed in a timely manner. Listened to my complaining when the closing was delayed by the seller, etc..
And then there was that fab wine & chocolates at closing :)!

Rosemary Buchanan

James did a great job! Buying a house and selling my home at the same time wasn't easy, but James was very organized and always protecting me. Everything went great! I am very happy in my new home as well as the family that bought my house. 

Reina Morris

I just want to say, "Thank you very much to James! He did an incredible, impeccable, and awesome job"! Sold my property after a very bad experience with another agent. Buying my new home, after a very long search! Also helping me with the mortgage process. But, I also discover a beautiful human being who does a lot for the community, like helping people to build homes for very poor families, and foster kids. Thanks, James! You are and angel!

Reina Morris

James was a great asset in getting our house sold. He guided us through the process and was very honest with us of what it would take to sell our home. He was very knowledgeable in regards to what was going on with the market in our area and the current shifts that were taking place. Before the initial meeting, he had already done his homework! He had looked at comps, contacted our builder, looked at tax info, and had an idea of what we should list for. I highly recommend James. He was easy to work with and kept in contact through the entire process, providing us weekly (if not more often) updates

Callie Moore

James helped us find our new home, and working with James was an excellent experience. James was very patient and walked us through every step of the home buying process. He set our expectations clearly and even explained steps of the mortgage process. James spent time getting to know us enough that he had a great sense of what we were looking for. Every time we went to look at houses (and there were several times), he was patient and provided great insight to how the space could work or not for us. When we finally made a choice on a house and put in an offer, James offered counsel on how much to offer, what to expect, and negotiated us a great price. He even went above and beyond and negotiated the sellers pay for a one year home warranty. James held our hands throughout this entire process and was a wonderful realtor. I would recommend him to friends, family, and you. If we ever move again (we are still unpacking so at this point that seems unlikely) we will use him again, FOR SURE!

Kim Perego

I couldn't have asked for a better home selling experience than the one I had with James. He was extremely knowledgeable, professional and definitely went above and beyond! From start to finish James made the process smooth and as stress-free as possible!

Loved working with James. Always professional and very clear at time of delivering important information. We found our house in just two trips!

Paola Guerrero

I cannot say how awesome of an experience it was to have James as our realtor. He was professional, courteous, and above all honest. He provided insight like no other which made hard decisions easy ones. I would highly recommend you try him out. You will not be disappointed. Thanks James!!! 


I was introduced to James about 4 to 5 years ago when he helped me buy a condo. Recently, he also helped me buy a home. He's very knowledgable of the Austin Market and knows where to look. James is always willing to help me with any questions I may have. Even though the purchase of the home has been completed, James still keeps in touch and is willing to answer any questions I may have since I am leasing the home to a couple tenants myself without management (something very new to me). James goes above and beyond being a great realtor. I consider him a friend. If I'm ever in the market for another property, I know who to ask. Go with James. You won't be disappointed.

Joseph V

I have dealt with several Realtors in my past for buying and selling real estate and James is the best by far! He has and continues to go to great lengths to make sure my wife and I are updated throughout the process of buying and building when we are 2000 miles away and we trust no one else but him. We look forward to a continued relationship with James even when me move to Austin in our new home sometime in May of this year.

Jim Eyler

Working with James was an end-to-end fantastic experience. incredibly helpful with knowledge of the location considerations, our selected builder of choice, and the build/loan/close process. he was encouraging of our sections and did a fantastic job of providing objective feedback to help us in our decision making without hesitation. I recommend James to anyone in the home buying market!

Casey Poston

James has a firm grasp of the Austin realty market. He does a great job of explaining all the different scenarios involved with purchasing or selling a home. He makes the process seem easy. James was able to sale my home quickly at the best possible price for the market. I was extremely pleased with the outcome of my sale.
