Amber Moran was born and raised right here in Texas. She is dedicated to helping her clients understand the Real Estate process from start to finish. Buying or selling a home can be a very daunting task, Amber is here to provide guidance, education, and expertise to her clients. She believes in straight talk, honesty, and good communication. Amber’s work ethic and family values speak for themselves. “Every transaction is personal to me, I treat everyone like family.” Her passion for her clients’ interests comes not only from her servant’s heart, but from her own first-home buying experience that was “a disaster.” She decided then, that she would make sure that people had a much better experience than she did.
She aims to help her clients make the best decisions for themselves and their families. She truly embraces her clients’ real estate experience and strives to ensure a painless and smooth transaction.
One of her greatest rewards is watching people start new chapters in their lives and being able to play a role in helping them accomplish their goals. “I am buckled in on the emotional roller coaster right there with them. We celebrate, cry, and laugh together. My clients become friends and feel like family. That’s why I do this.”
As you may or may not know, my husband Nathanael and I are brand new to Texas. When we decided to relocate, we knew we would need a realtor. Unfortunately for us, we didn’t have any contacts in the Austin area so we weren’t sure where to start. Fortunately, Nathanael’s father used to live in Austin several years ago and reached out to a lender he had worked with in the past to get a recommendation.That lender referred us to Amber Moran.
From the first moment of contact, I instantly liked Amber and had a really good feeling that she was going to be great. She was knowledgable, professional and a great listener. We came down in January of this year to look at neighborhoods. By this time, we had been speaking on the phone back and forth often about different areas, school districts and housing wants/needs. We had a VERY successful trip. Our goals as buyers for that particular trip were to narrow down to a “Top Three Neighborhoods to Live in List” and if we decided to build, we wanted to also narrow down the list of builders based on viewing homes they’ve built. It was a tall order, but we did it. Amber was SO awesome! She helped us navigate which neighborhoods to look at based on our wants/needs and schools. She set up appointments so there wasn’t a lot of waiting around. She made sure there were breaks so the kids wouldn’t get overwhelmed. She pointed out many things to think about as we were touring homes that helped us determine the quality, convenience, look and feel we were looking for as buyers. And when we left Austin that first time, we had reached our goal. We left to go back to Portland to ready our house there for sale so we could get the ball rolling in Texas.
Amber continued to send us listings and kept track of our progress in Portland. During that time, we started to realize we did indeed want to build rather than buy an older home. So that list of builders came in really handy!!
By the time I flew back to Austin at the beginning of March to buy, Amber and I had determined what builder and what neighborhood. I landed on Saturday, we went straight to the model and met with the builder and I put in an offer that evening. When I left Austin 2 days later, I had not only bought a house, but I was also able to tour both the high school and middle school because Amber had called them and set up appointments for me ahead of time.
Amber Moran is ALL that and a bag of chips. A big bag from Costco! 🙂
Amber is not only an exceptional real estate broker. She is an AMAZING human being. You are so fortunate to have her on your team. She went WAY beyond what I would consider the standard duties of a realtor. Just a few examples are:
• Stopping by our home as it was being built to check progress and take photographs to send to us back in Oregon
• Communicating with the builder on our behalf if something didn’t look right or wasn’t on schedule
• Setting up aforementioned school tours
• Bringing us food/drinks/paper plates on move in day because she knew we wouldn’t think about it.
• Attending every walk through we had with the builder and assisting us in making our punch list
• Advocating for us when she felt like we were being taken advantage of based on her breadth of knowledge of the industry
I’m sure there are so many more examples I could come up with. The list above is just off the top of my head. You can get the idea here. Simply put, Amber is worth her weight in gold and I would recommend her to anyone who will listen.
– Nathanael and Jacquelyn M.
Amber Moran was absolutely wonderful and worked with us for months to get us closed on our dream home! We will be referring her to all our friends and family! Thanks!
– Scarlett B.
From the second I met Amber, I know I was going to like her. Her exuberance and excitement about life is contagious. She always operates at 10,000 mph with a huge smile on her face.
My husband and I were desperate to sell our starter home and move on to a larger home in a better neighborhood. We just had a baby, and we both worked full time, so spare time was in short supply. Amber made it work. She had no problem driving to the other ends of the earth when I thought I wanted to live in the country wink emoticon
The process was a lot smoother than I thought it would be. We found a house but they would not accept our offer until our house was sold. We had not even listed it yet because we were not sure if we would even find anything in our budget and get an offer accepted since the market was so competitive at the time. Amber took care of it immediately and within one weekend we had 7 offers to choose from! Of course there were still stressful moments. Buying and selling at home at the same time and making sure the timing works out can be crazy. But Amber had it under control the whole time. Even when I was freaking out (lack of sleep and trying to move with a newborn will do that). I knew that if I called or texted that she would get me the info I needed ASAP or calm me down wink emoticon
I really can’t say enough good things about Amber. She makes me want to buy a house again even though I don’t need one right now.
– Jennifer F.
I think we were a realtor’s worst nightmare. We didn’t really know what we were looking for, or how much we were comfortable spending, we just knew renting was not getting us anywhere. Amber really helped us figure out what was a priority and she was so patient with all our “first time buyers” questions. I never felt rushed or pressured and always felt she had our best interest in mind. We will definitely work with her again in the future!
Cedar Park, TX
Amber is an amazing agent. She was able to work around my crazy schedule, and helped me find a home. She was always in a great mood, very professional and always on time.
I enjoyed working with her and recommend her 100%.
Amber made buying & selling my house one of the easiest processes ever! She was with me every step along the way & made both experiences seamless & stress free. Amber truly cares about who she is working with & you can always count on her to be on your side & have your best interests at heart. I would highly recommend Amber to anyone that is considering buying or selling a home!!!
Amber was everything we needed for this moment in our life. She listened to what we wanted, she was a educated voice of reason during the process, and most of all she was the calm for us throughout the process. It was apparent that our needs were her biggest concern. We cannot thank her enough for her guidance and help to make our dream come true!/p>
– Monica E.
Amber was very thorough in explaining the process of selling and building a home before we began our adventure. She helped us know how to prep our property before putting it on the market. We had our offer after the 2nd viewing. Amber helped us find a new property rental that accommodated for our family and pet. She is currently representing us as we build with CalAtlantic.
Amber is readily available and knowledgeable about real estate dealings. I highly recommend that you work with Amber.
– Amy R.
Cedar Park, TX
As a first time homebuyer in my early 20’s, I was very unsure of the house buying process since we were talking about spending my entire life savings. The first time I met with Amber, she immediately put me at ease about everything. As we began to look at houses, her incredible knowledge about everything from real estate values to knowing what would fit my criteria really shined. She was very patient with explaining all of the details and answering all of the questions that I had. I ended up finding the perfect home for me and, even a year later, couldn’t be happier. Whenever I meet another realtor, I am reminded how lucky I was to work with Amber. I recommend her and UFCU to anyone I can.
– Ally H.
We love Amber Moran! She is not only the best agent with Realty Austin but easily the best in Austin. She far exceeded our expectations. When we first made contact until the time we closed it was almost a year. She never made us feel that she was frustrated or tried to rush us. She helped us get a great loan and find a great house for a great price. She sold our old house in less than 24 hours for above what we expected. There is no doubt in our minds that when we or anyone we know has any real estate questions Amber will be highly recommended!
– Matt R.
Dripping Springs, TX
She was responsive, professional, & efficient. I truly believe I would still be wasting too much money on a rental property if Amber had not come into our lives just a few short months ago. She reached out to us during our search for a rental property and was the FIRST person to ever ask us “why don’t you just buy?”. My husband and I are young, never owned a home, and lacked information or guidance on how to navigate the process. Amber got us started on the right track and honestly, we are now sitting in our new home and it is largely because of Amber. She was responsive, professional, efficient and knew all the “trick of the trade” to get these first time home buyers through a very stressful first time home buying experience. Would recommend her to anyone in the market to buy–she’s very good at what she does. Realty Austin is lucky to have her.
– Bryan & Haley
Amber is awesome! She is very knowledgeable about the market and was very helpful in selling our home. I highly recommend her.
– Susan & Ben
Amber was a huge help when buying my home in 2012. She added the listing to the schedule first thing because the house had just gone on the market. I was able to get in quickly
and close. She even helped answer some questions I had about the market a few years later. Love her informative mailers, too.
Amber helped us buy our first home and sell one as well! She’s attentive and very knowledgeable about every step of the process. We highly recommend Amber to all our friends and family!
– Brian and Haley
Amber was wonderful, completely dedicated to helping me through the selling and purchasing processes. She’s extremely knowledgeable and very sharp.

– Amanda M.
Round Rock, TX
Amber was our realtor back in 2012 when we moved from NY to Pflugerville, Texas. Amber was awesome! We told her that we would only have a week to find our home, so she cleared out 6 hours a day for us to ensure that we were able to find our dream home. She arranged for us to see 28 homes over the course of the time that we had. We also had our inspections and a pending g contract by the time we headed back up to NY. She helped us to negotiate a better price too. She is timely, knowledgeable and considerate. We love Amber! She was pregnant with her son at the time too, but that didn’t slow her down. We will always recommend Amber for Austin area realty & we will use her again when we sell!
– Lori D.
Amber has been great in helping us with all of our real estate needs. She is connected to the local community and knows the ins and outs of the area. Wimberley is a far different market than Austin. Use someone who knows this area.
True professional, I’ve worked with Amber on several occasions she always takes excellent care of her clients, anticipates their needs and works diligently to make sure they have a great buying experience. We’re lucky to have her in our market!
– Chris B.
Amber helped my husband and I buy and sell our first home in Austin, She was incredibly knowledgeable and helpful throughout both processes. She was an absolute joy to work with, from her professionalism to her incredibly open and thoughtful personality. I cannot recommend Amber enough.

Amber is a responsible, honest, and motivated individual. I was a first time home buyer with a lot of questions. She walked me through every step of the process and taught me a lot. I wouldn’t hesitate in using her real estate expertise again or recommending her to my family and friends.
– Patricia G.
As a first-time home buyer, I had a lot of questions and uncertainty about what I needed to do. Amber was great at answering all my questions and being patient with everything I needed. She knows the market well, can provide great advice, and I felt like I could contact her about anything.
– Jonathan G.
I would strongly recommend Amber to anyone interested in purchasing a home. I worked with Amber to purchase my current home. Amber was extremely well prepared, professional, punctual and very easy to work with. Buying a home is inherently stressful, but Amber’s patience, deliberate planning and attention to detail made the process feel quite manageable. I would strongly recommend Amber to anyone interested in purchasing a home.
– Jonathan Z.

We are very grateful for her help.

– Lori D.
I would highly recommend Amber Moran as your Realtor.
– Katie M.
I would and have recommended Amber Moran to anyone of my friends and family. Amber Moran was an incredible advocate during the many months that she worked with me. She not only took the time to listen and consider all of my requirements but also asked intelligent questions in order to help me distill my individual needs. Amber took the time to show me appropriate homes, sometimes more than twice as I began to finalize my decision. She also educated me on the process of buying a home as a single professional woman. I would and have recommended Amber Moran to anyone of my friends and family in search of a holistic representative.
– Eryn S.
Amber is absolutely amazing!!! We are first time home buyers & she made this process so much easier than I anticipated!!! We couldn’t have done it without her & I highly recommend Amber!!! We will ALWAYS use her in the future as well!!!
– Julie M.
I always felt like I was in good hands. Amber helped me find my first house. Then she helped me sell that house. She put me at ease throughout the buying process and did a great job in both the negotiation and in navigating me through the paperwork process. I always felt like I was in good hands.
When I sold my house, it was a particularly complicated situation, both with the personalities involved and with technical stuff related to the house. Amber was often put in tough positions–every day was a new curve ball–and she handled all of them with equal grace.
Amber is down-to-earth, friendly, and straightforward. She´s more than competent at managing (and juggling) all the details of house transactions. She´s always available to talk or answer questions. And when it´s time to negotiate, you want her in your corner.
– Sarah S.
She was patient and good-humored. Amber made the exhausting, often nail-biting, process of house hunting fun. Without ever having met me before, she agreed to meet on short notice on a Saturday at a house I just knew was going to sell quickly. Once there, she gave me her honest opinion on its condition and market value, and then supported my partner and I through the emotional experience of making our first offer. Later, after that offer was rejected, she encouraged us along. She was patient and good-humored throughout and brought a lot of knowledge and insight to the process. In the end, she celebrated with us as we finally sealed the deal on the perfect house!
– Carrie E.
Amber was a great help to us. Did a terrific job of reading the market and finding the sweet-spot for our house. She had us under contract, with multiple backups, in under 48 hours.
Could not ask for better service or a nicer agent.
– Meghan & Karl
We enjoyed working with Amber Moran so much. She was fun, sweet & professional. I would HIGHLY recommend her! She made this whole crazy experience as smooth as possible & she was never shaken. We appreciated her forethought, research & preparedness.
– Rachel & Matt
Amber is a positive and thorough person who will look out for the people she works for by being very honest with them throughout the home buying or selling process.
– Schelina T.
Working with Amber was a joy! As a mortgage loan originator, if I had members with no REALTOR when starting the home buying process, I could always rest assured knowing my members were well taken care of and educated throughout the homebuying process when referring them to Amber. She is dedicated, helpful, and honest when setting expectations and explaining.
– Leah B.
Amber is extremely knowledgeable about all things in Real Estate. She is absolutely somebody I would rely on and recommend if I had any clients in need of a Realtor for selling or buying Real Estate.
