Bought a home in 2013.
We live overseas in China and Natasha helped us to identify and shortlist potential properties and then host me while I visited Austin taking time and care to explain to me key aspects of the local area and real estate market and the various additional costs involved. Having selected two properties to buy with her help, Natasha (again, mainly remotely as we were back in China) handled the entire buying process very efficiently and smoothly and then also found us tenants. My wife and I were really impressed and would have no hesitation in recommending her to others.

Bought a Condo home in 2013 in Austin, TX.
I can’t say enough good things about Natasha!

Short version: She is extremely patient, very knowledgeable about the area and the home buying process, and incredibly easy to reach (day or night). As a first time home buyer, I would recommend her without hesitation!!

Long version: We moved to Austin from New England, and stayed in a sub-optimal 6 month rental. Eager to move and unsure whether we wanted to rent elsewhere or buy we started exploring our options. After trying out a couple Realtors, we called Natasha after reading reviews of her on Zillow. I sent her an email on the weekend. Ten minutes later she called my back, asking about our preferences. She set up an MLS webpage for us same day. The next weekend we started looking at properties. We went out every weekend for the next month and a half. She didn’t rush us at all! She helped us consider and rank the different properties we saw. Since we weren’t that familiar with Austin, she patiently took us to see places all over the city as we narrowed down what was right for us. Where she really surpassed my expectations was in the purchasing process. Once we found a place, and had the offer accepted, she explained what to expect at each step. When I had questions she ALWAYS got back to me same day! I never went to bed worrying about where things were headed. During the renegotiation process at the end of the option period, we were not pleased with the seller’s offer, and before deciding on our counter offer, we talked to Natasha. She agreed the offer was not in our best interest. To my amazement, she said, “You have three options: 1. Accept the offer. 2. Counter offer. 3. Walk away.” After the two months of work she had put in at that point I was amazed she actually suggested an option that would leave her without getting anything for her work. She also expertly coordinated with the title company, seller’s agent, and bank. We ran into an unlikely hiccup with the bank when our loan officer left his position without any notice. This could have easily push back closing by a week or more (leaving us to renegotiate with the current apartment, the movers, utility company, etc.). Natasha jumped in – explained the most likely outcomes to us, and coordinated with all the involved parties to help ensure the closing would go off without a hitch. As a first time home buyer, Natasha made this experience not only as painless as possible, but also fun and educational. She is really one of the best in her field!

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 in Austin, TX.
Due to a job relocation we had to move from Ohio to Texas within 2 months time. Natasha was so fabulous throughout every step of the process. All of the preliminary groundwork that she did before our visit helped us to narrow down parts of town, and specific neighborhoods and to have a focused list of homes to tour during our 3 day house hunting marathon! We toured approximately 30 homes during those days and made our selection. She was instrumental during the negotiation process and helped us to get a great deal on the house. Since we were back in Ohio during inspections and the closing process, she went out of her way to be our eyes and voice in Texas until we arrived. She was tremendously responsive, patient and helpful from start to finish. I would certainly recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell a home. You won't regret it!

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 in Cedar Park, TX.
We are so happy we had Natasha by our side during the buying process! She had personal knowledge of the neighborhoods we were looking at and helped us hone in on the right area for our family. She was really quick to respond to any questions and requests for showings--even during the busy holiday season. She even showed us a property on Christmas Eve and worked with us on our offer that night, recognizing that time is of the essence in this hot market. When we found our home, she was a whiz during the offer, negotiation, and closing process. She walked us through each phase, step by step, so we didn't feel overwhelmed and got it all done on time.

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 in Leander, TX.
Natasha helped my wife and I find our first home. We had been looking on and off for a few months at resales in the area trying to figure out what we were looking for. When we contacted Natasha, she responded immediately and was able to quickly hone in on potentials.

We went out on our first day of real house hunting with Natasha, just expecting to get a feel for what was out there, but she was so quick and knowledgeable about the market that she was able to guide us to new construction, and we ended up buying a house that we saw on that first day!

The whole process went so smoothly and Natasha was awesome at advising and guiding us through the home-buying process. As first-time buyers, we were worried that we would get lost in all of the details and miss something we needed to understand, but we definitely feel that that is not the case, thanks to Natasha's help. We would highly recommend her to anyone looking to buy in the Austin and surrounding areas!

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 in Austin, TX.
Natasha helped my wife and I through the very difficult Austin market after we'd already tried two other agents. She was very responsive, keep closely in communication, actually LISTENED when we described what we wanted. More importantly, she helped us to translate our dreams (especially as we were first time buyers) into discrete objectives and then found us a good house. Would definitely use her again in the future and would recommend her to others as well.

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 in East Cesar Chavez, Austin, TX.
Natasha is in a class of her own. Her communication, process expertise, and high level of negotiation capability helped us beat out 7 bids on a house that had gone on the market that same day.

My dad and I are in the process of closing another deal with her and we could not be more confident and comfortable with Natasha as our agent.

Bought a home in 2013.
Natasha provided my husband and I with the best home buying experience that I could ever imagine. She was by our side through finding a rent house while we found the perfect place to raise our family. Honest, reliable, patient, knowledgeable and just an all around good person. We could not be happier with our choice in a realtor!
