Condo Buyer - March 2018
I first met Violet at an open house in my neighborhood. I found her to be friendly, knowledgeable and easy to talk with. When we began looking for a property to purchase I thought immediately of Violet. She made the entire process painless. She was available, returned phone calls and texts promptly and kept us informed at every turn. We would definitely use her again and can highly recommend her for any real estate needs.
My husband and I contacted Bill Austin to discuss a house on acreage that we had been watching for about a month. We met, discussed the bank owned property, and after experiencing his respectful, honest communication and obvious real estate knowledge and experience, we knew that he would help us to secure our dream property. Through many twists and turns, ups and downs, Bill remained diligent and optimistic yet realistic. When we finally got the bid, he was a successful and ardent liaison between us, the mortgage broker, and the title company. He gave us all the support we, as first time home buyers, needed and made the experience easy. We now call this property home. Bill is wonderful to work with and I fully recommend his services.

As first time sellers, my husband and I had a lot of questions, and a bit of trepidation when we decided to put our house on the market. Selling a home is complex and demands constant attention. With 2 kids under the age of two, a cat, a dog and both of us working full time the thought of selling our house was overwhelming. We've met with other agents in the past, but the first time we met with Matt we knew he was the one that we were going to work with. Not only is Matt a terrific guy, but he had a thorough knowledge of the marketplace, he was realistic in setting expectations, and he had a comprehensive understanding of buyer demographics in the area. He kept us informed throughout the entire process and was very professional. He helped guide and manage every step. My husband and I are still in disbelief at how smooth it all went. We won't buy/sell again without Matt! - Represented by Matt Friedlander
Thanks very much. I'll also say that it has been a pleasure doing business with you and Earl. We'd recommend you to our friends (and we still do have some in Austin) or come to you again if we move back. You all took good initiative and were really helpful and proactive about solving problems when they came up. We really appreciate it. - Adam and Angela F. - Represented by Earl Price
My mom moved here from California and thank God we had Jennifer to help her out. My mom had a difficult time with her realtor in California, but Jen was able to communicate with him to ensure he did his job correctly. Based on my mom's specifications she was able to find her the perfect house in Hutto.
My mom had some issues with the closing of her home in California; Jennifer was able to effectively communicate with seller in Hutto to extend the close. I don't know what we would have done without her. To say she is Awesome, does not do her justice. She is a great person and is always positive. - Drew Barsch
Jennifer is a wonderful person all around. She’s very kind, patient, and honest. Jennifer researches the neighborhoods, price ranges, and schools for you. I am incredibly fortunate to have met you, Jennifer. Keep up the great work and thank you for all of your help this past year! - Michelle Nguyen
Thank you, Violet, for the outstanding services you provided for selling my condo. I’ve worked with other realtors before for both buying and selling my homes and rental properties, and you’ve been by far the most knowledgeable and effective in helping me maximize my sales price. Your recommendations for prepping to sell were all very affordable and high impact. I valued your expertise for pricing, staging, marketing, and negotiating to a successful close. Other realtors seem to just want to “get the deal done” but you truly had my best interests at heart and the right plan of action to make it happen. I also appreciate that you are very capable with rentals, too, since you helped me lease out an empty unit in a duplex to some really great tenants at the same time. I feel very confident that you’ll be able to handle all of my realtor needs in the future. - Westberg
We can’t thank you all enough for making this happen for us!!!!! - Craig and Kelly G. - Represented by Earl Price
I would like to again thank you for your efforts on our behalf during this property search and subsequent negotiation. It has been our distinct pleasure and, perhaps more importantly, good fortune, to have made your acquaintance and been able to work with you on this, for us at this stage of our lives, very, very important decision. To be able to do it with someone as able, professional, and business-like as you have been throughout has been a great gift! Your diligence, attention to detail, and prudent counsel has proven invaluable throughout this exercise! Please, if, and or when, the need for any references surfaces, count upon us to provide a glowing account of the expectations potential clients should count upon should you become their realtor partner of choice!
Many, many thanks,

When we decided to look for our first family home in the U.S., we were so very fortunate to have found Tana Hunt. With the patience of a saint, a realistic and acute business sense, over two decades of experience in the title business as background and a fantastic sense of humor, she helped us find THE perfect home for our small family. She was a good and fair negotiator on our behalf and demonstrated honesty and integrity throughout the whole process. We highly recommend Tana! - A & P Voss - Represented by Tana Hunt
As the executor of my father’s estate, I was responsible for selling my father’s house. My son recommended Violet Leff, who had helped him purchase his house. After working with her, I understand why he spoke so highly of her. She is an amazing realtor who more than earns her commission. After viewing the house, she suggested what work could be done to help the house sell quickly. She met me at Home Depot and Lowes to help me choose fixtures, flooring, and paint. She sent me alerts about sales as well as a list of contractors. My emails and questions were answered quickly and I regularly received alerts when other homes in the neighborhood were put on the market. Whenever I was overwhelmed, she calmed me down. She spent hours staging the house. I had an offer in less than a week after placing the house on the market. Violet continued to work tirelessly to ensure that the closing went smoothly. After the closing she took me out for coffee, well aware of the bittersweet feelings I would have after selling a home that my parents had lived in for well over 20 years. She is an incredible realtor and I highly recommend her to anyone looking to buy and/or sell a house. - Deborah Brailas
"Violet was amazing to work with when I recently sold my home. She is extremely knowledgeable and helpful. More than once she saved me from myself -- thinking I knew the best way to proceed on something -- and she would explain her reasoning, I would then take her advice and she was always right! She went above and beyond!" - cherie rachel 4816 Chadbury Cv, Austin, TX 78727
Jenn was a pleasure to work with. She helped my fiancee and I find our dream home, despite a complicated move out schedule and problems with our bank. She was professional, flexible and will put your needs above all. We love our new home and neighborhood. I would highly recommend Jenn! Thank you Jenn for your help! Couldn't have done this without you! - Mike and Kyara Salkin
I'm not sure there is much I can add now that we've closed on our home. Except perhaps to add, it's been wonderful to have "navigated" through this home acquisition "voyage", if you will, with you at the helm! We could not have been luckier than to have made your acquaintance which enabled this realization of a dream for us.
So on top of a "BIG THANK YOU", We wish you and the family a safe and pleasant Holiday Season - Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!! - TS - Represented by Bill Austin
“Bill is an superb real estate agent! He not only excels in his field, his work is incredibly valuable due to being able to receive his quality work and its benefits. He knew when to dissuade us from a poor choice and when to encourage us to get just what we want. When we were on the right track, Bill could get each step done quickly. You will be glad you chose Bill, and so will your pocketbook!” January 10, 2012

Brandon was our agent in a sale and purchase. Both transactions turned out to be rather complex and took a lot of his time to finalize the deal, but throughout it all we never felt pressured to complete the deal and his first concern was that we had all the information to make the best decision for what was best for us. - Robert Cole
Maybe I'm biased for lack of comparison but this whole experience was everything you'd want in your home purchase. Home buying can be stressful to say the least. Throughout the entire process Sonia was there to guide us. She's a warm, caring, and professional individual who made us feel like family. She was there for our benefit. No questions too small or hour too late, she was there when we needed her. Aside from the purchase there's the recommendations and referrals of nothing but the best professionals at what they do. Anybody reading this, do yourself a favor and let Sonia help put you in the home you've been looking for. - Mayra Rodriguez
In our recent home buying experience Violet wasn't just helpful, she was indispensable. We spent 2 years looking for the right home for our family and Violet made it her personal mission to find exactly what we wanted. The market in Austin is challenging. We needed someone with deep experience and market knowledge. In the end we found exactly what we wanted for our family. We are so very grateful to have had Violet throughout it all. And after we settled in our new home, we leased our previous home and had Violet list it and find us our new tenants. Both my wife and I would highly recommend Violet if you are looking to buy, sell or lease property. - Kyle & Ronna Geisler
I have to brag on my friend/real estate agent. If not for her, we'd be one roof-less. She pushed for extra closing, pool cleaning, survey to be paid by seller, and a few other small touches we'd probably have over-looked. If you are in the market and need a realtor, I've got your woman! - Aimee T - Represented by Crystal Hampton
It was truly a pleasure working with Violet! She was very knowledgeable, thorough and professional. She led us through every step of the process and kept things moving along smoothly. She made sure we were informed of all the interest in our property and helped us select the best tenants. Thanks to her efforts we were able to rent our property very quickly. Violet stayed in touch even after the new tenants had moved in to make sure everything was going well. We would definitely recommend Violet to anyone who needs assistance leasing their property. - Marvin and Alma Brown
I met Anuj during an Open House. I was very impressed by his knowledge about Austin area, schools and housing market, so decided to work with him. He helped me to narrow down my search and to find the house within a week time. Even after finding the house, he did an excellent negotiation to bring down the selling price and get some of the repairs done on the house. He also helped me to negotiate the lease back with the sellers. I have worked with other agents before, when I bought my first house. I find Anuj's expertise is lot better and very helpful for the buyers. If you are buying a house, I strongly recommend Anuj as your agent. - Archipelago Trail : Represented by Anuj Jaiswal
Searching for a new place to live where you plan to spend many years is an important decision and big financial investment. It can be extremely confusing and stressful. There are so many things to look for in a new home and so many decisions to make. You need someone whose judgement you can trust and someone you know is putting your wants and needs above everything else. Marcela Alfonsin was highly recommended to me as a real estate agent when I began my search. She was everything I wanted in an agent and much more. She really cares for her clients and gives you her full devotion. She is extremely knowledgeable in the market and honest in her opinions I have bought and sold homes in the past but have never had anyone stand by me and help me as much as Marcela. I will always be grateful. C. Gates. Buyer - C. Gates. - Represented by Marcela Alfonsin
I am a recent new home buyer and I had the good fortune to meet Tana Hunt. I have purchased several homes over the years and she is by far the most knowledgeable and helpful realtor I have had. She was very positive and easy to get along with. She made sure that I understood all of the process and was very patient with a nervous home buyer. She asked all the right questions and had all the right answers. Her extra knowledge of the finance end of the buy was very helpful also. I can honestly say that she is a great Realtor and happily, a new FRIEND! - L Milner - Represented by Tana Hunt
This comes far later than it should, but I've been wanting to write you for some time. I'm not sure we ever properly thanked you for leading us to the on Danwood, and for you and Dan helping us make it our home. We LOVE this house, neighborhood, and school, and never would have come here if it weren't for you. The sellers took such care of this home, clearly not cutting corners and obviously intended to stay here forever - I think of them often, too, and hope they are both doing well.
Please give your family our regards. You are really good people, and good at what you do. Take care,

Jenn helped my wife and I find a great rental in Central Austin! She is really hard working and provides great insights and stats about the Austin housing market and recommendations for new neighborhoods in development. - Uzair Munis
I want to thank both of you again for everything you have done... You all were so great through the whole process, and I keep telling family and friends about it. It would be great to be able to show the level of appreciation I have for your hard work! - Steve L. - Represented by Dan Price
Jenn was very helpful when we went to Austin to check the properties there. We were very impressed by her knowledge about the area and properties we were looking for. Highly recommended if you are looking for houses in Austin. - Yuxi Hu
Jenn is a fantastic Realtor. I first met her at an open house in 2017. She remembered things I was looking for in a property and even though I wasn't ready to do anything, she contacted me when things I liked came on the market. Recently she helped my daughter and I find a new rental house when our current landlord put our current place on the market. She looks at all the details and really helped us find a place that was right for us. I highly recommend Jenn for any of your RE needs. Thank you, Jenn! xo - Jennifer Gress
I just wanted to thank you both for all your hard-work in helping me find my condo. I am really appreciative of your attention to detail, friendliness, and excellent service. Please know, I truly look forward to passing your name along and recommend you. - Stacy W - Represented by Dan Price
**Tana – I can’t even begin to put into words my gratitude for all that you did for me and even more for becoming a friend I hope to keep the rest of my life. People like you are a rarity in this world and you give 180% of yourself to taking care of your client. Even more you put up with my anxiety attacks, encouraged me when I thought things would never work out and made me laugh when I was down. You are the BEST!!!! - L. Pope - Represented by Tana Hunt
Thanks for help with all of this Earl. I appreciate your professionalism and your casual manner so much! I will be calling you when it comes time to sell my other house.

Shortly after moving to Texas via a corporate transfer we decided to buy a home and make our home here in the Austin area. This turned out to be the best buying experience (and investment). Tana showed us our future home on our day off and from there completely led us through the buying process with the knowledge, communication and honesty that we wish every home buyer could experience. We HAD to write this so a potential home buyer will read it and have the opportunity to choose a real estate agent that will give them the advantage over all other buyers and land the perfect home at the perfect price.”Thank you Tana for everything - P Gonzalez & P Meyer - Represented by Tana Hunt
Oliver helped me buy and sell homes . His driven work ethics are superb! ...HIGHLY recommend him !!!!! - Dianne - Represented by Oliver Hall
Purchasing a house in a seller’s market proved to be difficult. We were very lucky to have Crystal as our Realtor. She not only went to view dozens of homes with my family (we had three young children in tow), she was kind, understanding, and extremely knowledgeable about the current market and the area I was wanting to purchase a house. Each offer we made was against multiple offers. We finally were able to get our dream home with her assistance. Not only was she instrumental in our family being chosen by the sellers, she was essential through closing. Helping us negotiate a lease-back that was in our best interest, ensuring all of the issues found during inspection were fixed to answering my million questions, she made this process as easy as it could be. We are so thankful for her assistance and would recommend her to everyone! ~Melinda B - Melinda B - represented by Crystal Hampton
Jennifer is fantastic to work with! I highly recommend her to anyone looking for a realtor that will go the extra mile and keep your best interests at heart. Jenn helped us navigate the south Austin / Kyle area when looking for a new home and we are very happy with our new house! - Fred and Alissa Savage
