Better Broker, Texas Realty was founded in 2020 with two goals in mind: 1) To provide extraordinary Home-buying and Home-selling results for our clients through the innovative use of online technology, tools and proven systems. Our website makes it easy to research neighborhoods, narrow and save your search criteria, view all the Central Texas-area MLS listings and save your Favorite properties; and 2) To offer a discount sponsorship model to real estate agents who see the value in keeping more of their commission income.
Matt Prewett, the Broker/Owner, is a native Austinite and has been in the Real Estate business in Central Texas for over 15 years. Matt has built his business and database of clientele with a referral-based business philosophy that emphasizes his core philosophies of continuous personal growth; setting, meeting, and exceeding expectations; and the desire to establish long-term relationships with his clients in order to be their resource for life, not just one transaction. With an undergraduate degree in Business Administration and a Masters degree in Accounting, both from prestigious Rhodes College, Matt’s educational background, and specifically his financial analysis skills, allows him to excel with investors in addition to owner-occupants. Matt's professional accomplishments include the attainment of a Texas Real Estate Broker's license, a license held by less than 1% of Realtors because of the education, training and experience required.
After spending the first eight years of his career with Hindsite 20/20 Real Estate Investments in Austin, where he learned the referral-based business philosophy, Matt was recruited to Realty Austin at the beginning of 2012. He started the Prewett Team in February 2012 by hiring his first full-time team member, Melissa Osborne, to assist with Client Relations and Contract to Closing. Matt departed Realty Austin in December 2015 to open his own brokerage, Breakaway Real Estate. After 4 successful years under the Breakaway brand, Prewett decided to re-brand as Better Broker, Texas Realty in 2020.
A licensed Realtor, Melissa still practices as an agent as well, doing business primarily in her home territory of deep South Austin, Kyle, Buda, San Marcos, and Wimberley. She has worked in the Real Estate business since 2001, including positions as a Transaction Coordinator at brokerages, an Escrow Assistant at Independence Title Company, and as a licensed agent with Hindsite, Realty Austin, and Breakaway Real Estate. Matt and Melissa share a combined 40+ years of experience in the Real Estate industry in the Austin and Central Texas areas. Melissa is our "NASA Control", and now functions as Operations Manager of Better Broker.
