Harry is friendly and knowledgeable. He kept us up to date on everything as it happened and was always there to answer our questions. He offered great advice and guidance through the process. With his help, we sold our house for a great price and it was a painless process. We did the whole process remotely as well, with no hitches.
We would happily work with Harry again.

Great clients. I was happy to be of service and as always appreciate the opportunity to work with really nice people.
My wife and I were first time home buyers. We knew nothing about the process and felt a bit overwhelmed. One weekend, early on, we happened upon one of Harry's open houses. He treated us so well, and talked to us like peers. We told him our situation, exchanged business cards and went on our way. He didn't pressure us, he just talked intelligently about the areas we were interested in and how to proceed. We decided shortly after that to work with Harry officially. Throughout our house hunt, Harry was incredibly helpful, open, and available. We ran into a couple tough situations and Harry was there to iron things out and reassure us when it seemed frustrating. In the end, we found a perfect house for us. We got a great price, and a quick and easy closing. All is well, and Harry was a big part of that. The best thing I can say about Harry is that he became a good friend, and continues to be even after we were handed the keys.
I loved Harry's energy, and the biggest plus for me is that he's ridden his bike in every area of Austin, so he knows the feel of every area a d community. His experience within the city helped me gauge the best locations, and eventually landed me a little gem in an amazing location. And! I can afford it :)
I found Harry to be honest and very knowledgable with the Austin area in which my house was listed. I moved out of the Austin when my house was listed and Harry kept me informed as to the number of people that was viewing my property and when offers were received, he emailed them immediately and would call me to discuss. For the closing Harry worked with my schedule to find a date and time that was convenient and the closing was very smooth. I would recommend Harry to anyone selling property.
I would definitely recommend Harry to anyone interesting in buying a home in the Austin area. He helped me and my wife to find our first home, and he is also helping us to look for an investment property as well. Harry is very quick to respond, and always available to help with the whole process. He is very knowledge about the market, and very open to share any information. We will definitely work with him again for our future buying and selling need.
One more things, when we go to him for an investment property, one thing he asks us is “what happens if the worst thing were to happen? If I suddenly lost my job, and need to move out of the city?” Even though he knows I am pre-approved for a loan. This shows me that he is not the type of guys just want to sell us a house so he can make a profit. He cares the long term financial well-being of his clients. I think if there were more guys like him during the housing boom, perhaps there wouldn’t have been be a financial meltdown.
represented me on the sale of a home, and purchase of another home. was able to market very effectively, and get a buyer quickly on the sale, as well as, negotiate with the builder on my new home to get added incentives thrown in.
Harry helped our local congregation sell a parcel of land that was left to us by a generous donor. He was able to show us what parcels of that size had successfully sold in that area for the last five years and the challenges that we faced. He devised a plan to identify buyers and successfully executed that plan in a matter of weeks. The sale had many moving parts and Harry kept track of them all. We sold the land and both the congregation and the buyers were delighted with the outcome. I am very grateful to Harry for his honesty and hard work.
My experience with Harry Deitz was extremely positive, and I would absolutely recommend him. I found him to be honest, caring, and professional. After deciding to sell my mother's home, he did a good job of researching the neighborhood, and made sensible suggestions regarding work on the property. Most impressive was his compassion for myself and my brothers as we cleared out the home and dealt with the emotions attached to that endevour. Even though there was a delay of a couple of weeks due to problems locating the previous property owner (not Harry's fault), he kept me informed of the progress and any news that developed. I never felt confused about what to do or what would happen next, because he kept in regular contact with me. If/when I sell my home, I will definitely want Harry Deitz as my realtor.

My wife ended up finding Harry somehow when we began our search for a house, he was very open to letting her pick out some houses she was interested in along with showing her houses within our requirements. He also was very willing to work with us at our mixed schedules with my wife at-home and my longer work hours. Since we were relatively new to the area, new parents, and first-time home buyers he was very helpful in giving us the run-down on each neighborhood and area, along with bringing up items that we would not have thought of including resale and surrounding environment.
I was very pleased that he was respectful of my budget and did not try to convince us to buy more house than we needed and I was very happy with how smoothly the sale process went once we chose. I would definitely recommend him and I expect to use him again in the future when it is finally time for an upgrade.

Harry negotiated a deal that saved us$12,000 off what we were prepared to offer. He continually held the deal together with his attentiveness and "we'll work this out" attitude as we wound our way through the inevitable snafu's that come with every real estate deal. Extremely likable and honest guy. Highly recommended.
