I crossed path with Brad Pauly a few weeks ago, and I’m pretty sure he set the record for quickest someone has gone from stranger to someone I wanted to be a part of our Spotlight Series.
Spend a few minutes to learn about Brad, his life, and his potentially scandalous views on fried chicken sandwiches
EAA: How did you get into real estate?
Brad: I received my real estate license in 1999 at 24 years old. At the time, I was day trading stocks and wanted to find a career that I could grow.
EAA: Who are your ideal clients?
Brad: My ideal clients are people with like-minded goals in real estate investing. The people who have the same thoughts on short term and long term real residential real estate investing.
EAA: What makes you different from other agents/agencies?
Brad: My company is unique in the marketplace. We are a full service residential real estate firm that combined a traditional real estate brokerage with an apartment locating concept. We created a true one stop shop for all residential real estate needs.
EAA: When did you get to Austin?
Brad: I came to Austin from Houston in 1993 to attend the University of Texas.
EAA: What would you recommend to people moving here?
Brad: For people moving here, I recommend my favorite restaurants. Places like Odd Duck, Kome, Hyde Park Bar and Grill, Casa Colombia, Mothers Cafe, Juiceland, La Traviata, and El Chilito. I also tell them the best ways to avoid traffic, and I always recommend that people buy local.
EAA: Wait. Tell me more about how to avoid traffic.
Brad: I find the best way to avoid traffic is to take side streets. Traversing the city on the east side is one way you’ll find me avoiding I35.
EAA: What is your favorite Austin thing that most people don’t know about?
Brad: My favorite Austin thing that most people don’t know is that Thai Fresh has the best fried chicken sandwich in town.
EAA: Any charities or non-profits you are interested in/work with/otherwise want to give a shout out to?
Brad: We do our part to be charitable. We help the homeless find housing and donate 100% of our commission back to Austin ECHO.
EAA: Would you happen to have any new services or new office openings on the horizon?
Brad: We plan to open a new office in San Antonio, once COVID-19 calms down.
