Ratings & Reviews

My wife and I recently moved to Austin and had a decent idea of where we wanted to live but knew we couldn't do it on our own. Having purchased previous homes we knew how important it was to have a good realtor. I did my research and Dwell Realty came up. I called and Don answered my call promptly. We met so that I could 'interview' him...at least that is what I like to call it...after all he will be helping my family find our future home. We were thoroughly impressed with his knowledge of the area and with the questions he asked us in regards to what we were looking for in a home. Long story short he helped us get our new home and did a great job helping us negotiate with the seller to get the best deal we could. We KNOW we saved money having him in our corner. Needless to say we are VERY happy with his service and help. When given the situation now when people ask us if we can suggest a realtor here in Austin...we won't just say "Here's a realtor we use"...but we honestly feel we can say "Here's a realtor friend of ours we use." Thanks Don...we guarantee you someday down the line that we'll be sending you more business to thank you for the great job you did for us.

Showed home in 2010 in Brentwood, Austin, TX 78757.

Don is an awesome realtor! Gave me a breakdown of what my house was worth in comparison to others in the area in order to help me make an informed decision for asking price. Great guy, very trustworthy and knowledgeable - I will definitely work with him again in the future for any of my real estate needs

Sold a home in 2011 in West University, Austin, TX 78705.

Don was phenomal through the sale of our Home. He negotiated a great deal through one of the worst sellers market in history and went above and beyond throughout the process. We'll be back in the Austin market and we'll be back with Don.

Showed home in 2013 in Kyle, TX 78640.

Don has a background in engineering that he brings to the table in which we considered that certainly as added value. Don always had us in his best interest and made sure my wife and I were getting sound advice. I will certainly recommend Don to friends and family.

Don represented us as our "Buyer" realtor.

Don has been very patient and accommodating to us. Don also was able to answer all of our questions as a first time home buyer and he does not have the "salesman" attitude like you might find with a typical realtor. The market is really hot in the Austin area and because of this Don always had quick response times to emails, completing documents for offers to the seller, and showings for my wife and I.

If you are looking for an intelligent, patient, professional and personable realtor Don Powers will serve you well.

Showed home in 2013 in Garrison Park, Sunset Valley, TX 78745.

As a first-time homebuyer (to be) I'm very glad that I've found realtor Don Powers. Although I haven't found the house just yet, it certainly isn't due to a lack of knowledge, insight, or helpfulness on his part. I've had many questions throughout the process and Don has always been very understanding and thorough with the answers, even contacting others if the question may be a bit out of his wheel-house (mortgage specifics, for instance).

Don is great to work with for showings; quick to respond, easy to schedule, and has your best interests in mind during and after the showing. When it comes to making an offer, he has provided the information needed and the support for my decisions.

The home search process is definitely not stress-free, but Don has helped make mine fun and informative. I have no doubt that when I do make it to the next steps in the process I will continue to be thankful to have chosen Don as my realtor.

I recommend Don Powers, he’s a great realtor. Don has been my realtor for 2 years now and he’s been very patient with me on finding a house (very patient since I’m still searching). What’s really cool is that Don just doesn’t show you the house, he will also tell you what he thinks the potential problems could be e.g. roof, AC, foundation, floorplan, sewer lines, uneven floors, etc. He will also send you comparisons of similar houses that were sold in the last 90 days to see if it’s within market value.

Did I mention Don was patient? :) He won’t push you into buying a house, he knows it’s a big step and is all about helping you. A tip worth mentioning Don can also segregate your property search into areas e.g. North of 183, East of Lamar, by zipcodes, etc. Have fun and good luck!

Bought a home in 2008 in Barton Hills, Austin, TX 78704.

Don was my realtor a few years ago when searching for my first condo. I was not set on purchasing anything, and Don was very patient being my realtor for a long time until I finally settled on something I really wanted. He walked me through the whole process and always was very responsive and addressed my (numerous) questions about everything from negotiating to inspections and loans. Highly recommend!

Bought a Single Family home in 2012 in Austin, TX.

Don and I worked together for quite some time before finally finding the house that worked for me. He is extremely friendly, knowledgeable, straightforward, and honest. He will get to know what you are looking for, what you care about, and make sure to steer you clear of properties that may seem nice but would disappoint.

Showed home in 2013 in Windsor Road, Austin, TX 78703.

Don was extremely helpful when I was looking for a place to live in the Clarksville area. He not only understood my requirements but provided constructive feedback on each place that we looked at. He went above and beyond to find listings that fit my needs and when I couldn't make it to see a place, he would always go and and follow up with me afterwards. He found me a great a place just off of Enfield and I couldn't be happier. I will definitely be using Don again!

Showed home in 2013 in Brushy Creek, Round Rock, TX 78681.

I needed help locating properties in my area and Don showed me several properties in my price range and went above and beyond to make sure my wish list was met in the properties he showed me. He was very professional, and knowledgeable and made many helpful suggestions to help me make a rational offer in the bidding war that is Austin real estate with so many people moving to the area. He was very patient and helpful when things would get crazy with my schedule to make sure I was able to see as many properties with the time I had.
