My friends and family would best describe me as having an addiction to water (lakes and rivers). I was raised on Lake McQueeney, living in almost every neighborhood on the lake. I have also resided on Meadow Lake and currently live on Lake Dunlap with my wonderful wife Ashley and 2 boys. Having grown up on the lake, I naturally became a competitive water-skier and wakeboarder. I was the 2003 Collegiate Wakeboard National Champion. I also worked at various theme parks around the nation, including Sea World and Six Flags, performing in waterski/stunt shows. To this day you will still see me on all the area lakes training behind a Malibu (my favorite boat). A few of my real estate accomplishments include:
- I was featured on HGTV’s Lakefront Bargain Hunt: Renovation and Lakefront Bargain Hunt.
- Featured in the December 2015 edition of Top Agent Magazine
- I was the 2008 - 2016 top individual producer for Keller Williams New Braunfels (now the largest Real Estate office in Central Texas).
- For the past few years (2012-2018) I have been included in the San Antonio Business Journal’s Top 50 Residential Agents.
I graduated from Texas A&M University with a Bachelors in Business Administration in Marketing. I have combined my extensive knowledge of the area lakes (Lake McQueeney, Lake Dunlap, Lake Placid, Meadow Lake, and more) with my marketing background to bring you the most comprehensive real estate website in the area. I developed several of the area's top ranked Real Estate websites from the ground up, which are updated daily to give buyers and sellers the most accurate information about listings and area news (check out my blog). Please feel free to contact me anytime with any questions. I look forward to working with you.
“Hunter sold our riverfront home in less than 2 months and had a backup contract, to boot. All of that in what was considered a very tough buyer’s market! We believe his superior technology and use of internet marketing was critical in positioning and exposing our home to buyers looking for waterfront property. He is a true professional and we would not hesitate to utilize his services again.”
~ Mark Willis, CEO, Keller Williams Realty International
Hunter, we're by no means real estate experts. We were, however, "corporate nomads" for most of my 31 working years, so we've bought and sold our share of houses. And we've seen the good, bad and ugly, in realtors. Hands down, you are the best realtor we've ever worked with. You work hard to understand your clients' needs, and seek properties that meet those needs. You anticipate what might be needed on a target property, and do research to be better prepared to answer questions before they're even asked. And not once did we feel you were pushy, and putting your potential commission ahead of our needs. If we or any of our friends ever needs a realtor in the McQ area, rest assured we'll recommend you and provide the most glowing compliments possible.
~ Russell & Kim P
I have worked with the Lakefront Group twice and have nothing but positive comments about the company and specifically Hunter Croan who has been my realtor on both transactions. Hunter puts the customer first each and every time and works hard to understand the family situation in trying to find the right location. He is very responsive to all requests and never fails to take the time to help you out with questions during the transaction and up to years after. Basically you get both a realtor and a friend with Hunter Croan and I hope to use him and the Lakefront Group in the future.
~ Rick Caines
My wife came across Hunters web site about 4 years ago he has always answered any questions we've had, and met with us anytime that worked with us. So when we found this place for sale by owner, we knew Hunter was the one to call, to help us with this.
~ Steve & Cheryl
Hunter and his team did a fabulous job listing my property and maximizing the sales price we received on our property. Hunter helped me with all of the repairs I needed to make to fullfill obligations in the contract. Great job Hunter!!
~ Debbs & Wendy Nelson
Hunter was great, from start to finish. His advice was spot on from pricing the home for optimal value to great suggestions on staging the home. His knowledge of the market was invaluable. I would definitely use him again and recommend him to friends and family.. I have bought and sold several homes and this was the smoothest process I have experienced.
~ Steve & Tracy Macicek
Hunter’s experience and professional knowledge made our house hunting and final sale a easy and smooth experience. He found the perfect house for us which was off market and guided us through all transactions with the seller. I highly recommend Hunter Croan and his group for anyone who is looking for a home.
~ Robbin Rossbach
Excellent is the only word for Hunter Croan and his assistant Denise Dix... They are awesome!
~ Debbie R.
Hunter and his assistant are easy going yet very professional in every way. They represent themselves and the KW brand very well.
~ Phil and Mary Dyer
We always recommend Hunter to friends and family when they are looking to buy or sell a home. We just sold a home with Hunters help and could not be happier with the professionalism of he and his staff. Thanks again Hunter!
~ Kirk and Andrea Kelly
Hunter was a pleasure to work with, always professional, and maintained excellent communication. He has extensive knowledge of the New Braunfels/Seguin area chain of lakes. If you are looking for lake property, I would recommend him without hesitation.
~ David and Robin B
Hunter's knowledge of the Lake McQueeney area was very helpful in the purchase of our home. He was professional, prompt with response, and made the entire process very easy.
~ Rebecca P
We lived and worked out of town when we bought our home in McQueeney. Hunter did a great job taking care of details and small problems. We never had to make a special trip for any reason.
~ John Rossbach
Highly impressed with Hunter. A true professional. Great communicator. He hustles. We listed our condo with him and eventually, he was the one who also found the buyers! He made it happen. Great realtor.
~ Ann P
I've never been to impressed with realtors...Hunter and his folks were the very notable exception. Terrific to work with...worth every penny. I'd recommend them without question!
~ Quest Couch
This is the second time we have used Hunter and we love him & recommend him always.
~ Dwight and Rita Parscale
Hunter was our realtor when we were looking for a lake property. He was extremely helpful throughout the entire process and replied promptly when we found one that we thought would work. We had to go back and forth with the seller a few times and Hunter was excellent with his advise and keeping us informed. I highly recommend Hunter if you are interested in buying or selling a lake property. His knowledge of the lake systems and values was second to none. Thanks Hunter!
~ Matt Mueller
Hunter is the best! Hunter was our realtor when we purchased our lake house. The buying experience was fabulous, so we naturally decided, without question, to use him as our selling agent. We had a contract on our house within 7 days of putting it on the market, and closed within 30 days. His state of the art marketing tools we a huge factor in how quickly we sold the house. Hunter and his team made the process so simple. I would definitely use him again!!!
~ Melinda Wolf
Hunter was great. He is the third agent I have worked with over the years and he was substantially more accessible and easy to work with than anyone else I have dealt with in the past. He recently help my family purchase a new home in the New Braunfels area and we will definitely use him for our next purchase. I always felt like he was extremely knowledgeable about the market we were interested in and he made making purchasing decisions easy because of the confidence I had in his recommendations.
~ Chris and Peggy Griffith
Fantastic job. Everything went smoothly
~ Jamie Hull
Hunter was a great agent to work with and also really fun to be around. He put in a lot of extra effort and even took us on a boat ride to view properties from the lake. We didn’t know much about the Guadalupe river lakes when we started and he was very helpful in trying to provide some education on the area.
~ Dayna Burnett
Hunter and his assistant Denise are easy going yet very professional in every way. They represent themselves and the KW brand very well.
~ Don P. Dyer
Hunter was excellent in all aspects of the process and made it hassle free.
~ VMS et al Interests LTD
Hunter is the very best of real estate agents
~ Robert Scott Pullin
Hunter Croan is not only the best real estate agent in Central Texas, but he is the best real estate agent I have ever met. He puts his superior knowledge to use while negotiating the initial contract, but also during the end of the option period too. We wished we would have been able to use Hunter for our out of market purchase transaction that followed. We have no doubt he would have saved us money. Anyone that thinks they are going to use a "friend” to sell their house or for sale by owner is naive.
~ James Racanelli
I have nothing but wonderful things to say about Hunter and my interactions with him. He is such an excellent agent. He will always be my "go to” agent for waterfront real estate. He is also a wonderful man. I'm so glad that I had the chance to work with him and hope that I have that opportunity again someday!
~ Kathy Steffan - Power Properties LLC
Our agent gave good, practical advice throughout the process, from listing through negotiations. He was a great help.
~ William Dolan
Hunter was very great to work with. Helped us out with many questions and concerns we had with a river property in a flood way.
~ Matthew Sellers
Hunter Croan is by far the best agent we have ever dealt with. His attention to every detail regarding our best interest was second to none. We would highly recommend anyone we know to use Hunter for their real estate needs.
~ Caleb & Rachel Cloud
Hunter did an outstanding job as a real estate agent and did an excellent job providing information on which I could make accurate and informed decisions. He is a strong advocate for his clients and is a solid individual both personally and professionally.
~ Carlo Sechi
Hunter was incredible! A great agent!
~ Juliana Hill
Hunter has gone out of how way to be of great service. His knowledge of the area and lakes was a tremendous help. He made us feel like we were dealing with a friend not a realtor on commission. A very nice experience. Thank you
~ Billy Avary
We had the best home buying experience with Hunter! He was so knowledgeable about every aspect of lake living and that made finding the right property much easier. He was professional and friendly, always greeting us with a big smile. He was able to still take care of our purchase even when he was away on family vacation. The icing on the cake was the closing gift he brought to us when we signed all the papers! We look forward to seeing Hunter on the water!
~ Lauren Mueller
We had both a wonderful buying and selling experience with Hunter! He is very knowledgeable about the lakes in the area and lakefront property in general. He has a very good sense of value and is a great negotiator. He and his team pay attention to all the details so we didn’t have to! We strongly recommend him!
~ Julie Hill
We sold a house on Lake Placid through Hunter. He was friendly, very professional and his attention to detail throughout the process was great. Highly recommended!!
~ Clark Weldon
When my wife, my boys, and I decided we wanted a second house on one of the lakes, why not go to Hunter Croan. He’s grown up on the lakes in the NB/Seguin area! We knew he would know every property available and after getting to know us, helped us choose the perfect home! Thanks Hunter for helping us find our perfect home!
~ James Dorsett
We've known Hunter for almost eight years. He was instrumental when we were buying our lake house, and he was excellent when we just sold it. Hunter knows the area very well and especially anything on the water! Hunter goes well beyond traditional realty services. Everything from his staging/photos of the property (especially the amazing drone videos) to his list of every contact you would every need in the area, all add to an excellent experience. It was an easy choice on who we picked for our recent sale -- we didn't even consider anyone else. If/When we are ready to buy something in the area again, Hunter would be our first call.
~ Steve & Mary Logan
Hunter is highly professional and this is why we called on him for a second time. He and his assistant Ashley were awesome.
~ Mike Valerio
We were referred to Hunter by one of our friends. We have bought several houses before and Hunter and his team are absolutely top notch. In addition to being able to secure us a great deal on a water front home, Hunter and Ashley supported us every step of the way. When the unexpected came up Hunter knew someone we could call to get expert advice. I can't wait to work with Hunter again.
~ Jeremy and Emily Hopkins
Our family members have used Hunter for many transactions including both buying and selling properties on the surrounding lakes. Hunter is extremely knowledgeable and informative in all things about reality and waterfront properties. He has always been superbly helpful in our transactions. This time in particular he saved us thousands of dollars over what we thought we would spend! He and his wonderful assistant Ashley kept us informed every step of the way and found the inspectors we needed to assure us of our waterfront purchase.He sent us comps, flood maps, surveys, lists of surrounding merchants etc., all so very helpful! Thanks again Hunter and Ashley for all the details you so readily took care of, you made this purchase a real pleasure!
~ Elizabeth Valerio
Hunter Croan recently did an excellent job in short order of finding me a buyer for a nice piece of property along Meadow Lake. He was very easy to work with and had resources that helped. It could not have been a more easy, fast and efficient sale of property that I can imagine. You found the buyer very soon, has excellent photography including drone images that are fantastic, And a small efficient staff that enable things to proceed. He sold it for a price well above what I was imagining! Closing was on time, efficient, and very smooth. He deserves a lot of credit for this sale, With both seller and buyer very pleased with the sale/purchase of this property. So, if you want the best in the business I thoroughly endorse Hunter Croan to sell your property. You'll be very pleased with his service!
~ Robert Fleming
We had a fantastic experience buying our home with Hunter! He knows every facet of lake. His understanding of the market was spot on. Hunter is also extremely patient and will work diligently to find the exact place of your dreams. I highly recommend him!
~ Holly Ross
Hunter Croan is an awesome agent. He is extremely knowledgeable about the area as well as professional, personable, courteous and patient. We wound up getting exactly what we wanted, and Hunter helped us every step of the way. I highly recommend him!
~ Michael McCray
Best real estate experience I’ve ever had, and I’ve bought a lot of houses! Hunter and his team are very knowledgeable of this area and will work tirelessly for you. I would highly recommend him and will definitely use him again in the future!!
~ Lauren Wuertz
Hunter and his team were fantastic. He was friendly, professional and timely. It's never easy buying a home and you really need someone knowledgeable of the area and the process. Hunter is both. Most of the time when I've worked with realtors in the past they seem to not listen very well but Hunter heard everything I was concerned about and everything we were looking for. I highly recommend Hunter Croan and his team at The LakeFront Group. If you ask, they also will put you on an email that sends you an email when new properties come up for sale. Thanks Hunter and Ashley!
~ Aaron Scott
We couldn't have asked for a better agent in both the buying and selling of our house. Hunter and his assistant Ashley are professionals who go the extra mile, smoothing the path for the buyer or seller in every possible way. Hunter's expertise, intelligence, resourcefulness, and energy made our experience a pleasure. As a stickler for details, he immediately recognizes problems and omissions in offers and contracts, while his native kindness and good cheer win him friends among all he deals with, from other agents to inspectors. No matter how busy he is, he always makes himself available and takes care of concerns right away. Ashley, too, is both extremely personable and responsible, ready and eager to do whatever needs doing. Great team!
~ Richard & Patty Felder
I used Hunter and and his team to buy a lakehouse on McQueeney, then again to sell 9 years later. He has a list of contractors and stagers to prepare your home for sale. His lists of agents / buyers and contacts in several MLS services got my house sold FAST - before even hitting the MLS - Contract price above asking - cash - 16 day close - Could NOT be happier!
~ Jason Atkins
Hunter made this an easy and smooth sale and closing. We always felt well informed through the process, all the way til the end. Highly recommend!!!
~ Robbin Goslin
Hunter and Ashley were extremely easy to work with. Their professionalism and hard work resulted in a high bid on July 19th and we closed on August 1st. Would definitely recommend Hunter, easy going, knowledgeable and the only realtor I know that has his drone license. He knows the lake system, Canyon, Dunlap, McQueeney, Lake Placid and Meadow Lake. He has lived there and skied on those lakes. I would definitely recommend Hunter as a realtor.
~ Kurt Goslin
Hunter Croan and his team are the only realtors I will use for waterfront sales or purchases. From the time our house was listed, it was #1 on Zillow and most of the time it was #1 by double the next closest house as well as 60 + showings in 6 months. We highly recommend Hunter and his team!
~ Kirk Kelly
WHAT A SEAMLESS EXPERIENCE!! Being a realtor myself... I just knew I needed the expertise of a long time and experienced lake local. I knew nothing about the lake area and Hunter had all of the knowledge my husband and I needed to make the right decision for us!! The follow up has been amazing. THANKS HUNTER AND YOUR GREAT TEAM!!
~ Kristi Lindahl
Amazing sums it up! Hunter Croan and Ashley were amazing in helping me sell my lake property on McQueeney. Using his years of experience Hunter knew right away the best way to sell this property was to draw up house plans and show people what a house would look like on this empty lot. He helped set up an architect and Septic Design firm so that this property was listed as a turnkey sale. Additionally, he knew the right way to market the property to include a drone video showing the property and the help the prospective buyer envision what it would be like living on the lake. When I am in the market to purchase a home in McQueeney or anywhere in San Antonio, my first call will be to Hunter. He was in constant contact throughout the entire cycle and took the time to call and answer any question I had, to include evenings and a holiday weekend. Look no further than The LakeFront Group for an experienced, caring and fully engaged realtor.
~ Tim Chester
Working with Hunter Croan and Ashley has been amazing!! The communication with them is beyond amazing. They are very honest and professional. It was a pleasure doing business with them and I would recommend this office to anybody.
~ Matthew & Chrissy Furman
Thank you so much Hunter, you and your team are amazing. We know everyone went beyond the call of duty. Your marketing techniques were amazing which sold our house in less than a week. All of this would not have been accomplished without you and Ashley. Thank you!
~ James & Sylvia Harrison
My wife and I owned a unique property we knew would be difficult to sell; requiring the right person admiring of the style of our particular property. Having seen and heard the results Hunter Croan and his Lakefront Group had been having in our area, we contracted with him and his broker to market and sell our house. Overall, I couldn’t be more pleased with the experience. To begin, the pictures, drone video and aerial video he made of our property were most impressive. How he utilizes his website and the extensive marketing he does with it is well beyond my understanding but obviously quite effective. Throughout the process I was impressed with his ability to find potential qualified buyers for showings. His advice was always timely and appropriate, and his quiet demeanor was a perfect counterbalance to my impatience and bravado. Most importantly, he and his assistant kept us informed throughout the process with calls, text and emails updating us on his actions to market the property and then throughout the sale of our home once under contract. I couldn’t be a more ardent supporter of Hunter and his team. His performance in all areas of the transaction, from our early discussions to the final closing were always professional and courteous. I strongly recommend Hunter and his Lakefront Group for any sale of high-value properties. Sincerely, John Ewald, President, Ewald Kubota, Inc.
~ John & Katherine Ewald
We worked with Hunter to close on a waterfront home on Lake McQueeney in January 2019. His knowledge of the lakes in the area is extremely helpful. He also understands the special issues that go along with buying lakefront property. He was able to help us sort through the prospects, weigh the pros and cons of each property, and find a house that was a great fit for our family. He skillfully helped us through the contracting process. His assistant Ashley Buchanan did a fantastic job as our transaction coordinator as we prepared to close. She kept track of all of the deadlines and made sure that everything was lined up to close smoothly. I highly recommend Hunter Croan if you are considering a lake house in the San Antonio area!
~ Steve & Allison Elder
Hunter was great to work with and helped us find a great lake lot! He was very helpful with questions and easy to contact.
~ Hannah & Darrell Hedgpeth
Hunter Croan is AMAZING! I can’t believe how fast and easy it was to sell our lake house!!! He really knows what he is doing!!! He and his staff are phenomenal
~ Holly Spring
We have known Hunter for a long time and he did an amazing job throughout the entire process!
~ Blake Hess
Hunter and Ashley, Thank you so much for the countless hours you put in to both find us the perfect house to buy and also to sell ours for top dollar. It is a gross understatement to say that you two make a terrific team and that we couldn’t be happier that we chose you to work with us! You far surpassed all of our expectations! Your familiarity with the area, your research in comps, your attention to detail, your knowledge about contracts and the entire buying and selling processes in general, your ability to multi-task, your recommendations for getting the house show-ready, the listing you created (AMAZING!), your negotiation skills (also AMAZING), your ability to execute and get others to do the same, your patience and the millions of our questions that you answered, your ability to handle difficult situations all while being compassionate and understanding and dealing with me (I can be difficult or so I’m told by Scott ;) ...it truly is remarkable. You guys are the total package - the dream team! We will gladly tell all of our friends about you guys and how happy we are that we had the opportunity to work with you. And I sure hope you’re still doing real estate when we are ready to move because we will definitely be calling you again (although I can’t think about that right now haha!). Thank you, thank you, thank you again!!
~ Megan & Scott Lehnhoff
Hunter sold our home very quickly at full price. Was very responsive and super easy to work with.
~ Judy Joseph
Hunter is your man for lakeside property!! He is very professional and definitely knows his way around the lakes. He operates on a highly ethical standard, listens to you and, most importantly, keeps your best interest in mind. Hunter helped us find a lot on Lake McQueeney to build our retirement home and we are beyond thrilled with our purchase. We deeply appreciate his patience, understanding and never ending smile and humor. We highly recommend Hunter for any and all your real estate business.
~ Rose Williams
Hunter and his team are highly efficient, and very knowledgeable. They are attentive to detail and very responsive, and will keep you informed throughout the process. They go above and beyond for their customers! Couldn't be more happy with their service.
~ Derrick Bacon
Hunter knows what he is doing when it comes to buying and selling houses! My husband and I trusted in his advise when we purchased our second house. Loved how he handled the purchasing so much we turned around and used him again to sell our first house! He priced it right where it needed to be and we closed on our house in a month!Ashley is super friendly and helpful and stays on top of what needs to happen behind the scenes!!
~ Dusty & Jamie Jahns
What Hunter, Frank and the team have done can only be described as superhero kind of stuff. Went under contract Wednesday and closed on Thursday. I suppose it was on the market 25 days or so and a lightning quick close. As you said when we started the process, we only needed one buyer, and one buyer is exactly what we found. Your marketing materials were first class and the market targeting was spot on. Your pictures and video of the property were nothing short of magnificent. Ashley, in particular, was instrumental in keeping things organized and everyone on track from start to finish. I could not have asked for a more professional and capable marketing team. You are the realtors of choice for the area and that reputation is well deserved. Thank you for a job well done!
~ Hugh Menown
Hunter Croan and the rest of his crew are beyond professional. I was so impressed with how everyone was involved and how active everyone’s roles were in playing apart and getting my home sold quickly. I watched other homes sit on the market for months in my neighborhood.From the time my house was listed and from the time it sold was approximately one month. If you want to get the most for your home and get it sold quickly, Hunter Croan is who you should call. I would absolutely recommend him to any of my family and friends
~ Rhonda Teboe
Hunter and his team are beyond awesome. They are extremely professional and incredibly efficient. Their home buying system is top notch and their attention to detail is second to none. Thank you so much to Hunter and the rest of his team at the Lake Houses for Sale in Texas group for making everything go seamlessly. If you are here looking for an agent to either help you buy or sell, look no further. The Lake Houses for Sale in Texas is the best.
~ Matthew Spalten
My husband and I had been looking for a house on Lake McQueeney for years before calling Hunter, and we found our perfect home during our first day of showings. We were a little nervous about purchasing a home during a pandemic (as were the sellers), but Hunter went above and beyond to ensure that we all were safe and comfortable; even adding specific COVID-19 precautions and amendments at our request. We were also thoroughly impressed with his knowledge of all the lakes in the area, and appreciative of his willingness and insistence in being completely transparent, from dam current events to home building codes and flood history, etc. Coming from a family of lawyers, I was so impressed by and thankful for Hunter's knowledge of real estate law and strict code of ethics. It was completely refreshing and reassuring. Both Hunter and his assistant, Ashley, were fantastic about organizing all of the necessary steps that usually make home buying and selling so tedious, from inspection and closing procedures to local advice and a very useful vendors list. We were (pleasantly) shocked out how smooth everything went from day one, with Hunter present and available at every step. We have been in our lake home for two weeks now and are so thankful to Hunter and Ashley for their hard work and diligence."
~ Aaron & Sarah Wade
Hunter has helped us thru very difficult transactions. I believe he is the sole reason we closed on the house we did. His team is very professional and handles hurdles in the real estate process with the precision of a surgeon. You will not disappointed with his service!
~ Jeff Coultas
Three years ago my brother bought a gorgeous home on Lake Dunlap. Hunter Croan was his Realter and my brother had nothing but great comments about the process of buying a home with Hunter's help. My brother, unfortunately, passed away. And so I reached out to Hunter for assistance on selling James's home. Hunter accepted the opportunity not only to sell this home but extended his help in preparing the property for the sale. Hunter was there to help 24 hrs a day, 7 days a week if we needed him....
~ David Dorsett
Hunter and his team did a remarkable job marketing and selling our home. I highly recommend them and I will use them every time I buy or sell lake front property!
~ Jeanine Schoenert
Hunter was easy to work with and made the transition very easy! I would highly recommend them!!
~ Rachel Townsend
The Lakefront Group was excellent to work with. Hunter and Ashley stayed in constant contact with me to let me know EXACTLY where we were at in the process. I would recommend them to anyone looking to sell their home!!
~ Patti Harrington
