About Realtor Fonz
The now: I'm a licensed Realtor with eXp Realty & currently studying to get my mortgage loan originators license. My thoughts are that if I can gain a deeper understanding of ALL financing options I can provide a better service to my real estate clients. This also works the other way around. I can provide a better service to my clients seeking a mortgage with my knowledge of the real estate market. I'm also a small business owner in Austin with a cell phone repair shop called The Austin Cell Phone.
The past: After high school I attended Austin Community College for a few semesters before I realized that my passion was to be an entrepreneur. I'm much more of a hands on person when it comes to learning & learned much better by doing rather than being in a class room.
I started my first business in the mall at one of those small kiosks selling small ornaments & home furnishings. That didn't last long & I had to close up shop. I worked various jobs until I gave it another shot. Same mall kiosk but a different product & some experience under my belt. The business concept was to sell high quality body jewelry & designs not found anywhere else. This business worked much better & I quickly expanded the business to a second location. After experiencing success I became complacent & started to mismanage the business which resulted in having to close both kiosks. This was a devastating blow which was accompanied by the birth of my daughter & first child. I started to work @ Samsung to be a provider for my family then switched to Lowes Home Improvement when I couldn't tolerate working overnights anymore. At Lowes I got the much needed training & experience on how to run a profitable business while delivering an amazing service. I worked my way up to managing several departments. During that time I created a small online business selling used & refurbished cell phones. When my income with my online business exceeded my income from Lowes I planned my transition to a physical store front which became The Austin Cell Phone. After managing the cell phone business successfully I turned towards a business that was both demanding & outside my comfort zone, real estate. This brings us to where I'm at now in my professional life.
The future: The path is not yet 100% clear. I currently service clients in central Texas with goals to create a real estate team that services all of Texas. I also want to build a mortgage business that enhance the experience with every client I serve. Questions or comments? Call me directly @ 512-809-0091.

For us he went above and beyond to make our first time home searching and buying experience very smooth and taught us many things in process. Thank you Alfonso! "
Bought A Home In Pflugerville Texas
" Mr. Alfonso Rodriguez is very knowledgeable, responsible and most importantly, he was always on our side. As first time home buyers we had lots of questions, he always answered them patiently. He constantly sent us new listings that would match our requirements and criteria. He was not disheartened if we did not like any of the houses we saw. He did not try to push us into accepting out of the houses we visited. He has a very positive attitude. When it came to closing the deal, Alfonso helped us with all the paper work explaining all the details. He is the kind of person that you can trust. We highly recommend Mr. Alfonso Rodriguez for all your real estate needs. "
You'll find that I'm very easy to talk to without all that slick sales talk. When you want to sell & buy a home, having the right Realtor by your side makes a huge difference.
