About Us

Rocket Science’s Broker, Cynthia Riley Loera

“You don’t seem like a Realtor.” I get that a lot. It is meant as a compliment because I am not pushy or “sales-y.” My job is to help clients make smart real estate choices. My background in law makes me comfortable negotiating, handling conflict, listening, and staying organized. Cynthia’s resume

The other corporate policy that sets us apart centers on our use of resources. Our own resources. We don’t invest in advertising to draw in new clients. We are a referral business, meaning our clients keep coming back to us and they send their friends to us. We don’t do monthly mailers, newsletters about our business, etc. We put our resources into learning, keeping up with the market and technology that sells property. And a professional photographer to take listing photos. And a great stager.

Buying a home requires time, effort, and includes some stress, especially if you are on a deadline. Even investment purchases can carry some stress in our fast-moving market. In the central areas of Austin especially, it is not uncommon for properties to get multiple
offers their first day on market. It can be a challenge. We love the challenge and we look forward to helping you find the property that fits your needs.

What Clients Say About Us

*To say that I recommend Cynthia is a real understatement. Some of the key issues when you are buying a house is having someone you can trust, who can quickly zero in on what you want in a house and is organized to get the job done. She figured out our taste and needs immediately and selected the homes carefully. She was extremely well-organized and responsive. She helped us to make an informed decision in 2 days flat. And if that wasn’t enough, she helped us in a host of other tasks-networking for a job, finding a gym, you name it, she did it. I don’t know what we would have done without her.

*’Cynthia Riley was beyond wonderful to work with. She is, and I am not exaggerating, the only realtor I ever want to work with again. Wonderful direction, advice, went out of her way to help us find exactly what we needed, which was not easy. In addition, she’s truly enjoyable to spend time with.

*”The buying/selling process went off without a hitch – in fact it was fun! Now I’m on a quiet street with wonderful neighbors. Cynthia’s ethical approach, determination, and strong negotiating skills set her apart from most people I know. Not at all pushy. Not a self-promoter. No hidden agenda. Just a hardworking, civic-minded, genuinely kind person who knows her business.
