First impressions matter
What is the first thing you look at when shopping for a new house? The photos? Yep, everyone does! Real Estate Photography isn’t about documenting every detail of a property. It is about capturing the buyer’s interest and making them want to dig a little deeper. Equal parts art & science, great photographers use twilight shots, the rule of thirds, the Fibonacci series, and a lot of photoshop to transform your home into someone’s aspirational lifestyle.
let them obsess
They’ve looked through the photos dozens of times. The video has been looping on their desktop. There is only one thing left to. Let them obsess! Give them a chance to imagine their furniture in your house and they’ll come with the offer of your dreams.

It All Starts Here
Aaron and Julianna made our home search a very seamless and worry-free process. They are very empathetic to our needs and work incredibly hard to find properties that meet all of our criteria. We can’t recommend the Scruggs enough, we'd be quite lost without their guidance!
Aaron and Julianna are great to work with. Not only are they really friendly, but they are clear and communicative and I felt like I got the best deal possible. Thank you!
Aaron and Julianna shepherded us through our experience as first-time homebuyers with extraordinary thoughtfulness, thoroughness, and care. In the Austin market, you need realtors who are almost super-humanly responsive - who will spot a listing that matches your requirements, get you out there to see it, run a market analysis, and put together a competitive offer...all within 24 hours. Aaron and Julianna provided this for us, all while being supportive, funny, and chill. We ended up in the home of our dreams, and we absolutely could not have done it without them. I've already sent one of my friends their way, and I'd recommend them to anyone. They are really special.
Aaron and Julianna Scruggs are consummate professionals who bring their considerable individual expertise to everything they do. I have bought and sold several residences in the last 10 years or so but never experienced the total knowledge and dedication they show in dealing with their client. They are the total package, from their vast knowledge of the real estate picture in Austin to their warmth and honesty. Aaron doesn’t just sell real estate. He analyzes his clients’ wants and needs and guides them thru their journey. I am impressed with them not only as professionals but as fine human beings whom anyone would be fortunate in going thru this process with.
I can't possibly say enough good things about my experience with Scruggs Group. Aaron & Julianna are super organized, thoroughly knowledgeable about the market, responsive, personable, and overall wonderful to work with. They've proactively anticipated my needs at every step, and as a first-time solo home buyer, I couldn't have done it without their patient guidance and expertise on every topic imaginable. They're worth their weight in gold!
I have to say, Aaron who was the buyers agent, as I was the seller. I can see how diligent he was to make sure his buyer was taken care of. profession and really on his game. Anyone who needs an agent these 2 top notch!!!!
Aaron and Julianna were amazing to work with. As first time homebuyers, we leaned on their depth of knowledge to guide us through one of the most challenging times to purchase a home here in Austin, TX. Their honesty at every phase of the process gave us confidence we were making well informed choices. I would absolutely welcome the opportunity to work with them again in the future.
Aaron and Julianna went above and beyond as our real estate agents. They were professional, detail oriented, organized and amazingly helpful in every aspect of helping us sell our home in Austin. They are a great team. Whether you are buying or selling a home, we highly recommend Scruggs Group.

Been eyeing a move to Texas for a while, like most Californians :) They provided me lots of insight, advice and research into areas I was interested in while knowing full well I wouldn't be in a buying position for months. Professional, accommodating and very sharp. First people I will call once I'm ready.
My daughter & I bought her first home in downtown Austin and we engaged the services of Aaron & his wife Julianna. I have bought or sold 21 residential properties over the years, and quite simply, they were the most professional agents I have ever used. From the outset, I asked them to deal with my daughter because it would be her home. They let me stay in the background because I wanted her to fully learn and understand each step of the real estate acquisition process, from initially engaging their services, to narrowing the market focus based on unique market prices, to engaging a banker, and then drafting the terms of an offer, hiring a home inspector and then negotiating with the seller to reach a final sales price. At each stage they educated my daughter, explaining the reason behind each step and carefully explaining her options at each stage. Not only did my daughter learn a lifetime skill set that will pay dividends for years to come when she purchases future homes, but through their efforts she secured a great home in the hot Austin housing market. Even after the closing when there was no financial gain from doing so, they both have been extremely helpful in suggesting skilled tradesman of quality to come in for repairs and improvement my daughter is making. Their dedicated after-the-sale efforts speaks volumes about their level of professionalism. If you are seeking to buy or sell in the Austin MSA market, I would highly recommend you engage this team, obtain one of their custom analytical market analysis, and work with this team. I firmly believe they are, quite simply, the best agents in the Austin market and the best I have ever come across in my decades of buying and selling real estate.
We've experienced the most uplifting experience working with Julianna and Aaron. Not only our questions were answered immediately but the personal and caring tone added a reassuring touch. Their depth of knowledge, ability to research swiftly and precisely and analytical capabilities are unparalleled.
Aaron was very professional, thoughtful and helpful. He answered all of our questions promptly, followed up and certainly had the sellers back during negotiations - as he should! Pretty smooth all around.
Julianna and Aaron have amazed me with the success in their listings. Ranging from education to strategy and most importantly results. Seeing the speed at which properties go under contract, and move from pending to sold gives me confidence! They are also a delight to work with even under the most stressful situations.
Aaron and Julianna absolutely love what they do, and their passion drives a truly superior service. They went above and beyond my expectations throughout the process of finding, buying, and moving into a home. They work hard, listen carefully, drive the process, and are constantly a step ahead, guiding things along smoothly. They make a great team and complement each other well. I would have been lost without them! Some details on my personal experience that demonstrate their incredible professional and personal service: - As a first-time home buyer, I had a lot of questions, uncertainties, and blind spots. Aaron and Julianna enthusiastically showed me a lot of homes in a short time, answered tons of questions, kept me informed of all sorts of things I didn't know to look for, and helped me feel comfortable making a big decision. - Although I started with few ideas about what I wanted, they provided guidance and helped refine my search as I toured homes and discussed my preferences. - Each time I found a promising option and did an initial walkthrough, they dug in to find additional info on the home that same day. They went through several of these deep dives so that I could carefully consider each option from all angles. - They proved very knowledgeable about the market conditions in Austin during COVID, and helped me understand the full financial picture of owning a home, even providing feedback on a crazy spreadsheet I made. They continue to watch the local trends closely and share their knowledge regularly online and in person. - They advised me on negotiation tactics when putting in an offer and evaluating the inspection report. - When stuck with a very unresponsive seller's agent, they filled in the gap, willing to dive into any avenue of research. They learned about unique building materials and taught me about them, and they dove into public records to verify the status of permits and dig up the property blueprints. - They took some really kind measures to help me settle in, like sending a food delivery gift card on my moving day. - Most importantly, they helped me find a first home I absolutely love!
