REALTOR® & Founder
Announcing CJ Shaffer is now serving the Luxury Austin Real Estate market through KURB Real Estate Group with Compass Texas. CJ comes from executive sales and marketing background providing a competitive edge for buyers, sellers, and investors. Previously serving the Orange County, CA market, CJ delivers an unparalleled experience through unique branding and marketing of properties.
CJ started from the grassroots of growing an organic marketing and sales business in Las Vegas, NV growing from a small entrepreneur to an Enterprise level go-to business for the entertainment industry. Later he joined a fortune 500 company to take unsuccessful real-estate sales regions to positive cash flow. He did this by unique complex co-branding and partnerships with luxury brands. His experience took him through Las Vegas, Destin, Seattle, and Orange County consisting of taking areas from $25M sales to $100M+. While doing this CJ consulted his own company flipping properties and Luxury new construction consisting of properties avg. of $3-$10M value.
With two real estate licenses, one in Orange County, CA, and one in Austin, TX he set out to create a Luxury client pool heavily connected between the two cities. In just a short time of entering the Austin market, he has generated over $12.5M in buyers and sellers’ contracts for the 3rd and 4th quarters of 2020.
On a more personal note, CJ has a beautiful family. His wife Rebecca, 4yr Old Kayden, and two Stafford Shire bull terriers. “Real Estate is a professional business that deserves a heightened experience for clients.” Professional agents should create such an experience in that a property is not sold, it simply fits our clients.
Client TestimonialsView All
"We tried a couple REALTORS® over the years who did not listen to us and had their own agenda. CJ was different from the very beginning. He is extraordinarily competent and was able to anticipate anything that we considered or proposed. Within a short time, we had two offers at our asking price (in cash) and the final offer came in about a month later with no inspection requirement. CJ has a rare combination of skills and the type of personality that can keep all the pieces of a transaction together, moving towards a closing without fail. That is tough to pull off in a multi-million-dollar market with fickle buyers."
"If you are looking for a great agent, CJ is your man. We were referred to him by our long time agent in Newport Beach, CA. From the first point of contact to this day, CJ has been nothing short of amazing. He helped us navigate the bidding process to win out against an all-cash offer and guided us through a challenging escrow period to a successful close. We have already introduced friends to CJ and look forward to working with him again on our next purchase."
"CJ was completely responsive and professional. He let us know all of the positives and negatives of each decision without mandating the way we should move forward. He was constantly respectful and hardworking even in tough moments. CJ was instrumental in helping my wife and I find the home of our dreams. I would not hesitate to suggest him to anyone."
"I recently sold a business and was looking to relocate to Austin Texas. My wife had been following CJ on Instagram for a while and really loved his style and the properties that he listed. We gave CJ a list of must-haves in our new home. Within two weeks CJ had secured an off-market property for us to view. We flew in, we saw the property, we wrote the offer, and we were in our new house within 45 days of meeting CJ. We highly highly highly suggest using CJ for all of your modern home needs in the Austin Texas Area."
"CJ is a fantastic agent. I can't say enough good things about his professionalism and personal attention to my property. He gets the job done, is honest and forthright with his comments and suggestions. He is always available and reliable and makes a habit of weekly updates. I always knew what to expect and when I needed to make adjustments. He was able to negotiate what I consider the best offer for my property. CJ has a great sense of humor and can laugh about things that crop up unexpectedly and then deal with them with determination. I can't recommend him highly enough."
"I cannot say enough good things about CJ and his team, to say the least, they make life easy! Having been through many real estate transactions, CJ definitely sets the bar high. Being an out-of-state buyer, CJ came recommended by a local agent. Even before landing in Austin, CJ’s professional, easygoing personality and very apparent worth ethic made me feel at ease. CJ and his team are truly an all-in-house, white-glove experience. When I was not in town he was there to meet with anyone from contractors to interior decorators. Anything I needed he made happen!"
"We were having a lot of trouble selling a unique and expensive property in a difficult market. Then we met CJ. He is everything you want in a realtor, professional, responsive, incredibly hard-working, and full of fresh ideas. He knows this industry inside and out. Not only did he get us top dollar for our sale (in cash), but also turned around and got us a huge discount on a new purchase. Whether you are buying or selling CJ is the realtor you have been looking for."
"CJ is an extraordinary agent with a network of amazing contacts. When it came to selling our unique property in Westlake Hills not only did he bring massive value, but he went out of his way to deliver a Class A experience for us. We are extremely pleased and would recommend him to anyone in Austin!"
"CJ did an excellent job. He worked with us, was effective in communication, provided options to approaching the sell of our house, supported our decided approach, handled negotiations with poise and professionalism, had solutions to any obstacles, and got us the pricing we wanted. He is easy to work with and goes the extra mile for his clients. Many thanks and would recommend him for any real estate needs."
"I cannot recommend CJ highly enough. There are a lot of people in this business as a side gig or for their own self-interest. CJ truly cares about his clients and has the industry knowledge to guide them to do what’s best for their situation. No one will work harder for you! Because of his great work, we found a forever home in one of the toughest markets. I will probably not need to use his services again, but I would never use anyone else if I do!"
"My husband and I recently engaged CJ Shaffer to sell our Central Austin home and we were not disappointed! CJ and his team are professional, experienced and extremely responsive - they made the process of readying our home to sell as well as the whole selling experience very easy and stress-free. CJ guided us in our decisions on what to do (and what not to do) to freshen up the house, coordinated getting quotes as well as oversaw the work performed. He communicated with us proactively, always reaching out with updates from the listing through the closing process. And most importantly, CJ’s marketing of our property was top-notch! Beautiful photos, videos and staging all brought a lot of potential buyers. We highly recommend CJ and KURB Group to list and sell your home!"
