Welcome - if you're looking for apartments, condos, or houses near UT Austin to rent, buy, or sell then you’ve come to the right place. My name is Alex Ray and I am a licensed Broker and REALTOR® in the state of Texas with Austin Residence. I started my real estate career in 2010 with West Campus Living and Apartment Lovers before forming my own brokerage. I work with both students and professionals and have helped more than 1,200 clients find a home. I also work with a number of owners to help lease their properties in the UT campus area.

As a graduate of UT Austin (B.S. ‘08), I know this city and its neighborhoods well and understand the unique needs of the UT community. I specialize as an apartment locator in off campus housing near UT and apartments located within easy walking distance of a UT bus route (see apartment map), especially those in Austin's North Campus, Hyde Park, West Campus, Far West, Riverside, Cameron Road, and Mueller neighborhoods.


The apartment locating service I provide is 100% free, because I’m compensated by the property owners regardless of where my clients lease. It’s my job to find you the best rental based on your search criteria, not to steer you toward any particular property. I have access to all apartments, condos, and houses in Austin, as well as current specials, so I’ll help you find the best deal available.


Take some time to explore the free search tools and resources on this site, and if you’d like some assistance finding your next home, just let me know - I would be happy to help you!



Just wanted to say thank you. You made this easier than I thought it would be. I'll definitely refer friends/family who are in the market for anything to you. And I suppose if I need help in the future with anything I know who to contact! Thanks.                                                               - Stephanie


My 2 roommates and I had an absolutely wonderful experience working with Alex. We were slightly nervous as it was our first time house shopping (goodbye, apartments!), but after just one meeting with Alex, we knew we were in good hands. In addition to several properties we had picked out, Alex took the time to thoroughly research other houses in our price range and preferred area - and voila, we found the perfect new home and couldn't be more pleased. Alex was very accommodating to our schedules and definitely made us feel like we were his priority. If you ever have the chance to work with Alex, you won't regret it!                        - Katie


I'm very grateful for Alex's help in finding me an apartment. Having never used a free apartment locator service before, I was skeptical of the results, but I soon realized how beneficial it could be. I was only in Austin for a short window of time, so I gave Alex a call. He was quick to respond and showed me several options the next day based on my preferences. The whole procedure went smoothly and I'm just glad I don't have to worry about finding a place to live anymore.                                                              - Andrew


Alex is very friendly, professional, and thoughtful. He listened closely to my search criteria and used excellent judgment in selecting places he believed would be a good fit for me. He was diligent, patient, and kept up excellent communication with me throughout my search. I would highly recommened Alex as an apartment locator!

I really love my new apartment, it's very nice and super close to my building (on the UT campus). Exactly what I want. Thanks a lot for your help. If any of my friends need help finding a place close to campus, I'll definitely refer them to you.                                                                                        - Minxi


Alex kept a constant watch for properties that matched what I was looking for. I received daily emails that updated me both on properties I was interested in and new properties I hadn't even heard of. Alex keeps a sharp eye on properties for his clients - you never have to worry that you've missed something.
