Jaymes Willoughby
Keller Williams Realty
About Jaymes

Jaymes came to Austin in 1984 after earning his BBA in Marketing from Eastern Michigan University. He began his real estate career as a new home sales agent. In fact, Jaymes sold his first home on his very first day of work! He continued to have repeated success selling new construction for David Weekley and Newmark Homes. After spending seven years with builders, Jaymes turned to brokerage sales. He went on to pilot his own residential brokerage, Providence Realty Group. Building his business from the ground up, Jaymes learned the importance of technology in real estate marketing, and has utilized and stressed its importance throughout his career. To stay on the cutting edge of technology and growth, Jaymes moved his company underneath the Keller Williams Realty umbrella. The Jaymes Willoughby Team continues to be named as a top 5 agent in the Austin Metro Area by the Austin Business Journal. Jaymes and his team started a dog rescue effort years ago, and since then has affiliated themselves with Addicous Dog Rescue. Their focus is helping find foster parents for dogs that are days away from death in Texas' dog kill shelters. The JW Team has annual fundraising events to raise money for dogs transitioning from death row to a happy "furever home."

What should you look for when interviewing a real estate agent in Hays County?
When you sell a house, your real estate agent becomes your business partner, financial advisor, and emotional support system. It’s crucial to partner with someone you trust, so make sure you’re looking for an agent who can answer all of your questions with confidence during the interview. During this process, you want to get to know the agent’s business and find out how well they know the area. You’re listening for things that signal experience, expertise in your community, and workload. Selling a home takes an enormous amount of work, so you need an agent who’s got a plan for prep, pricing, and marketing and who is ready to roll up their sleeves to get the job done.

Read more
When is the right time to hire a real estate agent in Hays County?
The best window to contact an agent to sell your home is anywhere from three to six months in advance of your list date. When you start the search for an agent several months before hitting the market, there’s plenty of time to find the best agent, make key renovations, and market your home effectively, all of which are essential steps in selling your home for a great price. You can also hire an agent based on the best time to sell to take advantage of seasonal and cyclical trends in the market. The right time to hire a real estate agent depends on the temperature of the housing market. For example, the best time to sell is in May. And since it takes around 3 months to close on a home, you should list in February. We recommend that you hire a real estate agent as soon as you're thinking of selling your home. Generally speaking, that's anywhere from 3 to 6 months prior to your desired move date.
