Realtor Spotlight Richard Schley

Richard Schley (pronounced “Sly”) says:

Richard Schley

“Call me when your house absolutely, positively has to be sold!”

Meet Austin Broker and Realtor Richard Schley. He grew up in Dallas’ University Park and, when in high school, got a summer job at Friendly Chevrolet sweeping floors for $1.10 an hour. Well, you never know where that first job may lead you. Richard spent 40 years with General Motors opening and running dealerships in Texas, Arkansas, and Mississippi.

He made it back to Austin 19 years ago (UT grad 1970) and decided to retire 8 years ago. But after 2 months of going stir-crazy he became an Austin Realtor. What does running car dealerships have in common with being a highly-successful Realtor? Richard says, “It taught me how to match people with the right product and how to negotiate a fair deal for both parties.”

Your first car was? A 1962 Impala: 6-clylinder, 3-speed column shift and a hang-on air conditioner that froze the knee caps. 

Favorite Austin restaurant? Azul Tequila by my house. Great food!

Are you a dog or cat person? Actually, both. But I have 3 cats. I call myself a certified cat socializer for the Humane Society.

What do you do for fun? Race sports cars.

What celebrity would you like to have living next door? Well, years ago I got to hang out with Paul Newman and his car at the race track. What a great, down-to-earth guy. As long as you didn’t talk about his films or his career…he was ready to be your friend. But today, I guess it would be retired race car driver Dan Gurney.

The secret of your success? That’s easy. Personal service. I personally scout out to find my clients their ideal home AND I personally handle the sale of their homes. Even during the recession, the houses I listed were sold within 2 weeks. The car business taught me it’s all about turning inventory. I want my client’s property to be on the market for as little time as possible.

Just like our Austin movers, Richard is very knowledgable about the city of Austin! If you need a local and professional mover you can trust, call 3 Men Movers for a Free Quote today!

Edna Stalik Realtor Spotlight

Married for 20 years to a military man who was transferred many times, Edna knows first-hand the stress that comes with moving. She also knows the stress of being divorced and having to do things on her own. That’s why she has a heart for the elderly who are facing downsizing and those moving out of their “big house” into something smaller.

“I bring the total package to my clients. Not only will I sell their house, but I have professional associates who will help them decide what to keep and what to get rid of…plus a wonderful team of careful, caring movers.” Edna brings a strong customer service philosophy to the real estate business and strives to be a good listener and a good communicator.
“I look for growth opportunities in everything I do. Helping people buy or sell a home is one of life’s greatest opportunities to grow and achieve the lifestyle you desire. It inspires me to give my all every day.”

Your first job? Behind the soda fountain at Thompson’s Drug Store. I absolutely LOVED it!

Your first car? A white 1957 Chevy.

Favorite movies? It’s a Wonderful Life and Steel Magnolias

Best restaurant?Galaxy Café, because they have a fantastic glutton-free menu.

Reading any good books? Yes. Grain Brain. It’s all about glutton. I saw Dr. David Perlmutter.

Favorite singer of all time? I guess I’m old school. It’s Elvis. What a voice!

Proudest accomplishment? Raising my 3 wonderful sons. Two live in Pflugerville and one in Denton.

Dog or Cat? Absolutely cat. Her name is Allie and is a rescue cat. Does that make her an Allie Cat?

The secret of your success? I connect with and share compassion with my clients.

To be a successful realtor in Austin, you have to know the city well! Like our Austin movers, Edna is very informative when it comes to our state’s capital!
