Awesome Apartment Locating

Austin, Houston, Dallas

Now in Apocalypse Mode!

Where are you moving To?

How We Work With You

1

Let's Talk!

The fun part.

We’ll hop on a call where we’ll chat about what you’re looking for in a new home. Your budget, desired location, lifestyle goals, move in date, and anything else important to you!

2

Research

The super fun part.

We’ll custom create a fully comprehensive fancy research spreadsheet with all of our target apartments, prices, SQFT, and whatever else you’d like to know.

This will dramatically reduce the time you spend clicking through out-dated listings & touring incompatible apartments. We will condense all of your research in one place.

3

Apartment Tours!

Woah! Even funner than before!


Armed with your new fancy apartment research spreadsheet, you’ll have what you need to tour! We’ll team up in person or remotely to tour the apartment complexes together and become best friends. It will be awesome.

Apocalypse Mode! Instead of touring together, we will send you any video tours of apartments you’re interested in seeing! Social Distancing for the win!

4

Application

Less Fun, but very important!​

When we find an apartment you love, you’ll submit a simple application to the building. All you’ll have to do is list us as your referral. The apartment takes care of contributing to our funds of overpriced cocktails and breakfast tacos. That’s why we’re free for you to work with!

5

Fiesta (Optional)

Maybe too much fun.

You will host an epic fiesta in your cool new apartment. It will be attended by famous Instagramers with lots of followers, stars from that Netflix show you just binged, and foreign dignitaries from exotic countries. It will be awesome. Hopefully we will be invited.

Meet the Squad

Alex Concepcion

Alpacalypse Survivor - Taco Enthusiast

I’m Alex Concepcion, Apartment Hunter Extraordinaire, Sommelier of Square Feet, Connoisseur of Condos, Lord of Leasing & (alleged) heir to the Seven Kingdoms.

I grew up in Miami, Florida in a wacky Cuban-American household. In 2015 I decided to trade in salsa music & beaches for breakfast tacos & brisket here in Austin where I now call home.

When I don’t have my apartment locating hat on, you can expect me traveling the world like some knock-off Anthony Bourdain, lifting weights at the Austin Bouldering Project, or expanding my giant library of local taco expertise, and slurping ramen at Ramen Tatsuya.

My goal is to help you fall in love with Austin the way I have.

Amanda Virgin

Strength - Freedom - Tacos

Amanda Virgin likes a good challenge. Pre-law? Easy. Pre-med? Next please. Combat medic? Check. Deployed to Kuwait and Iraq – Amanda discovered her strongest traits. 

Independence. Reliability. Strength. 

This is the same Amanda deployed in real estate. She will go to the ends of the earth to get you what you need. 

But that’s just the beginning, Amanda is the perfect ambassador to all things Austin.  She can track down the best hidden tacos joints in Austin (she swears by the breakfast tacos at Shoppers Food Mart). 

Nor is she a stranger to the finer things. Ask her about dining experiences at Uchi, special country club access, and secret bar memberships. She’s a member of the Young Women’s Alliance and works with various charity galas. I can think of few people better to show you around Austin. 

And let’s be honest here, if you can trust her in the field, you can trust her to find you your next home.

She loves biking around town finding the best ramen spots (Wabi House being her favorite) and enjoying a Bloody Mary bar from favorite local pubs. Growing up in Dallas has given her a true love that she’s always excited to share.

When she’s not apartment locating she enjoys taking trips to the mountains, traveling to beaches around the world, eating exotic foods and rock climbing!

He’s an entrepreneurial and cultural force of nature and he’s super excited to help you fall in love with Houston as much as he has.

FAQ

Frequently Admired Queso

Yes! Free like that HBO account your friend doesn’t know you still use when Game of Thrones is on. Apartment buildings pay us to bring people there. Working with us has absolutely no effect on your lease or the specials you get.

Mostly every apartment complex only has unfurnished units available. In some cases, they will have furnished apartments set aside as “corporate housing”, but those have jacked up rates. Usually it’s better to just rent furniture.

The shortest lease terms we can work with is 6 months. Shorter term leases usually have much higher prices than traditional leases (12 month+).

Yes! Our other superpower is being cool tour guides that know all the cool local stuff.

The Austin parts! So….all of it!

Best Walkable Neighborhoods in Austin

Probably the most common request from my clients when moving to Austin is to live in a walkable neighborhood.  Because of course, walking outside of your home to go to that local coffee shop or taco stand or dive bar is critical for having a quality life.   But then

Two years ago, my husband and I relocated to Austin from Michigan and didn’t have the opportunity to fly out ahead of... time to look at apartments. We serendipitously found Alex and asked for his recommendations in the north part of the city. He hooked us up with a great place and we signed the lease, sight unseen, and lived there for the past two years. We recently decided it was time for a change and wanted to live closer to downtown, so we reached out to Alex, who, within a day, sent us a comprehensive list of every option available in our budget. He also spent an entire Saturday afternoon looking at places with us. When we settled on a place in the East part of the city, he even took us to his favorite taco truck, one that I’m sure we will be frequenting many times in our new home.I highly recommend Alex for his knowledge of the area, commitment to his clients, and genuine love for Austin and helping everyone find their perfect place in this city!read more

Alex takes a concerned approach searching for one’s unique and individual rental needs. I sense his sincerity and... care for ensuring his clients are happy moving to a city he seems to cherish.He helped me on a holiday despite getting bit by 3 dogs earlier in the day, which speaks volumes to his concern and commitment (just kidding about the dogs). I was working with another agent as well in another area of Austin, but Alex was available and willing.I would recommend him to anyone who would is looking to move without any red tape or gimmicks involved. He will try to analyze and cater to your needs whether it be living close to work, being near an up-and-coming area, being near “adult entertainment”, living in the hood, or wanting privacy, etc. He is the real MVP.read more

I'm relocating to Austin for work, I went on a website and found an apartment I was interest in.. Alex responded to my... inquiry and I am so happy he did. He asked me a few questions and within a short period of time he sent me a list of places to look at. I didn't care for what I saw and I asked Alex to widen the area which he did with no problem. Alex sent me another list with lots of apartments that I could go through to see which ones I was interested in. Alex was not able to take me to look at apartments the next day so he sent Renee and my goodness I am so glad that he did. Renee was super intuitive, she listened to my ideas, my thought, etc patiently. Both Alex and Renee were very professional.if I ever have the need to look for an apartment again, I will just contact Alex and send him my requirements. Also I will gladly refer Alex and Renee to anyone I care about who is looking for a nice, safe place to live in Austin.read more

Alex was great to work with! I moved here from Alabama and he has worked with me for over a month to find the right... place for me. Alex is thorough, professional, knows Austin really well and most importantly is unbiased. He gave me his opinions on each apartment complex and the overall value for the price, the good and the bad. Plus his reviews of what to do in Austin, where to eat and what to see are fantastic. I was referred to Alex through a friend and I will refer Alex to anyone else that moves to Austin! His services are free to use!read more

Alex is delightful to work with. He found us many great complexes to check out that were exactly specced to what we... wanted. He was brutally honest about the pros and cons of each complex and even warned us against a couple that we had heard of that weren't on his list. He offered us a tour of his own complex too. We ended up at an apartment we LOVE and would happily recommend him to friends every time! Thanks Alex!!read more

Working is Alex is the bomb! For starters, he found me the best apartment deal in Austin when I moved back to town... (thanks dude!). He knows Austin better than anyone else I've met. He's super organized and efficient. He knows all the neighborhoods and areas to find what you want (East side rules). He's an awesome dude (makes the search easy). And his food and restaurant recommendations are the best I've ever got (he gave me best ramen rec ever). I've since recommended friends to Alex and they have also had a fantastic and efficient apartment finding experience. Plus... his apartment locating service is FREE. I don't know what more I could ask for. Call Alex. He's your guy. You'll be so happy you did.read more

Alex was extremely helpful in helping me find an apartment. I was moving across the country on short notice for work.... Due to the short notice I was unable to physically tour any of the places. Alex went to the apartment we had discussed (based off of a pretty awesome spreadsheet he put together) and took a full video of the entire place for me. I am very thankful for his help. He made the process of finding a great apartment seamless! I would highly reccomend his services to anyone moving to Austin.read more

Alex is LEGIT. He personally picked me up in his vehicle and gave me a tour of apartments that met my needs and also... provided an educated tour of Austin. He is an excellent resource for apartments, food, drink, and more. My wife and I enjoyed a perfect dinner on 4th street based on Alex's recommendation. The guy knows what he's talking about! And he is very accessible - his response time was impressive. He returns texts quicker than some of my family/friends. THANK YOU ALEX!read more
