The Vista Vision
Jimmy Torres and Emilio Perales had a dream to open a real estate company with the most trustworthy REALTORS® in Central Texas, and that became their reality in 2013. Vista Real Estate started with the mission of being the most trusted, knowledgeable, experienced, and helpful resource for our community and we strive for that everyday! We are highly involved in giving back to our community because without the outpouring of support given to us, we would not be the successful real estate company that we are today!Vista Real Estate is family owned and operated. Our children & grandchildren go to school here; we are your friends and neighbors! Remember, we are not just a Real Estate Company; We’re Family!
We have been involved with the buying and selling of homes in the Fort Hood/Temple, TX area and adjacent areas for over 15 years. Since inception, we have been an important part of the local community and we will continue to serve all of the area’s real estate needs for years to come. With over 20 agents in the office working under an experienced licensed broker, all of our staff members are high-caliber professionals with extensive experience and knowledge about our local real estate market. Our agents come from diverse backgrounds, but all are dedicated to providing the highest quality service to our clients. Meet Our Agents!
Our office is fully equipped with an integrated network of computer and communication systems. We have instant access to the regional Multiple Listing Service, Public Record Searches, and many other tools and services that our agents use to better serve you. In addition to our agents and brokers, we also have three full-time administrative staff members that work tirelessly to accommodate any and all of your needs. They help coordinate meetings, set schedules, and ensure the timely processing and delivery of all your documents.

“Kelsey was awesome!! After having an experience with a different realtor who didn’t communicate with us, Kelsey came on board as a breath of fresh air! She had our house under contract in 2 weeks (after it sat on the market for 7 months with our previous realtor)!! She’s upbeat, communicative, and attentive. Highly recommend!!”
“You made buying a home so easy for my wife and I. We were grateful for how much patience you used in answering all of our questions and taking us to look at so many houses. You never pushed us into looking at something we were not interested in. We strongly recommend you to anyone looking at buying a new home.”
“Thank you so much for taking the extra effort to make our first home purchase successful. You were there guiding us through all the crucial and important steps! You really listened to what we wanted in our home and you found exactly what we were looking for – at an amazing price! If we ever outgrow this home, we’ll definitely be calling you!”
“Jimmy has been outstanding in the sale of my mother’s house. He is so professional and efficient. I cannot give him enough compliments. He was able to sell the house in less than six months. I would definitely recommend him. If you are wanting to buy or sell, Jimmy is the best!”
“We have used Jimmy Torres (Vista Real Estate) twice in the last year. Once to sell our home $250,000 and then a couple of months later to purchase our new home $150,000. Jimmy is well versed in the Bell County real estate market and in tune with his customers needs. I would truly recommend using Jimmy Torres for any of your real estate needs!!”
“Jimmy is the best! It is a well known fact that buying or selling a house can be a stressful event. However, having a knowledgeable and honest agent is key to limiting that stress. Jimmy is exactly that agent. We have used him for several real estate deals over the last 7 years and he has never fallen short of amazing. You can always trust what he says and believe that his is there 100% for you. That is why we would recommend Jimmy without any hesitation!”
“Jason Hancock helped us find our first home! He is a wonderful realtor! He promptly responded to any questions my husband and I had and helped make the whole home buying experience easy. He was very helpful throughout the entire process from beginning to end, starting with finding our dream to closing on it! We are completely pleased with his services and would highly recommend him.”
“In all our dealings with Realtors over the past ten years, we have never met anyone as helpful and energetic as you have been. Without hesitation, we would highly recommend your service to anyone who is looking for an experienced Realtor who cares about getting things done and doing them right! Thanks for taking such good care of us, we couldn’t have done it without you!”
“I work as an Escrow Officer with a local title company and have worked with Jimmy Torres for several years. I have found him to be an intelligent and honest real estate agent who always has the best interest of his clients first and foremost. You cannot find a more down to earth guy and his vest knowledge of the local area and market is outstanding. Jimmy showed myself and my husband a home last year that we ended up buying. He took his time and went over every detail with us as if he was buying it for himself.”
“You won’t find a friendlier agent than Jason. Jason was easy to work with from start to close and really worked to find the perfect home for us. He listened to what features we wanted and found a home with almost all of them. I would definitely use Jason again if we need another property or real estate deal. We just happened to stop in to Vista Realty the day Jason was at the front desk and he was happy to show us homes right away. Our search was over in a week and we are thrilled!”
“Jimmy was fantastic. He took such good care of us that I can honestly say he treated us like family. When I found a house that I thought I wanted and was talking about making an offer, he recommended that we hold off because he had some homes to show me that might be a better fit. That was amazing because it proved that he truly is about finding the best home for his client rather than making a sale as fast as possible. In the end, we did not buy the first house; and he was right, the one we did buy was a much better fit. Thanks Jimmy. You ROCK!”
“Jimmy was a delight to work with from the beginning to the end. Not only did he help in the sale of the house which we owned, he helped us with the process of listing our home as well as was able to answer any questions we had. Jimmy was great in helping us find a new home that met our wants and desires. He listened to what we wanted and needed and took us to homes which met our needs. He is very family oriented, knowledgeable, honest, and personable. I would recommend him to anyone in the Central Texas area who is looking to sale their house or buy a new one!”
“Mr. Torres was extremely helpful in guiding me through the experience of the real estate buying process. This process is stressful but Mr. Torres alleviated any and all issues that arise in the process of buying and or selling a home or piece of land. He thoroughly guided me through all of the prospective choices in my desired location in a timely manner to help me find the perfect choice for me. I strongly recommend any individual to give Jimmy Torres a call if they need any assistance in buying or selling real estate in the central Texas area. He will find what you are looking for. And for a good deal!”

“Lisa, You did an outstanding job in representing Vista Real Estate Agency. All updates on the status of my home were submitted to me weekly that allowed me to see who was interested in the home. In addition, your ability to be available to go over any details was instrumental in letting me know how many people were interested. In working the closing of my home and the hail damage that unfortunately happened to my home you ensured that I was constantly kept aware of the situation, while at the same time representing me from Kuwait and closing out the damage to my property. All your support was truly instrumental in selling my home. As you know my job is in Kuwait so the communication at times was very late at night. Your ability to adapt proved to me that you and Vista Real Estate agency were the right choice in selling my home. I personally want to thank you and Vista Real Estate Agency for an outstanding job. Hope to work with you again in the future.”
