Testimonials

My business is real estate investing. I have used John Pickens to buy and sell for over 10 years and he has always been a great agent. In any kind of transaction, whether purchasing a home or an investment, he brings a lot to the table. Advice on financing, negotiations, 1031 exchanges, he does it all. I will use him until I retire.

If you want to list your home, or buy a home, or any real estate property, any licensed agent can and really wants to do that, because that’s how they make money! I almost got my license so I could pickup some extra income by listing friends property. However, if you want to sell that property in a timely manner by using a real estate broker that has the resources to reach potential buyers from places you can’t even imagine, then John Pickens coupled with Sky Reality is who I would recommend using. John is a caring man with strong Christian values, constantly brain storming for ways to sell your property. Even though I have moved far away from the Austin area, I would depend on John to help me sell my property, if and when I need a real estate broker. My wife and I highly recommend John and his brokerage company!

“John was attentive to our company’s needs. His ability to move in and out of our corporate world and the world of the local land owners made a complex transaction much easier and led to a transaction where all parties were happy.”

-Kristopher M.


John, my wife and I hit the ground running and looked at a few properties, then found the perfect one and put in an offer slightly over the asking price.

First day found the house of our dreams. Beat that!

-Owen C.


It is without hesitation that i would recommend John Pickens for anyone’s real estate needs. it is not just the experience that makes John sought after when buying or selling a property. It is how much he cares for the people he serves. Buying or selling real estate is not just a transaction. It becomes a deeply personal experience. If it is your personal home you need someone who will educate you and help you through the process. Preparing you for what is to come. John Pickens has the knowledge and ability to help his clients be successful.

-Joe M.


John Pickens has been a great help for me personally and for our ministry. When we have been looking for a property he found unique parcels that in some cases were not found on our searches on the internet. He is an honest and hard-working Realtor and we will use him again.
