Several real estate agents we contacted would politely hint us to tone down our expectation. This all changed when I talked to Ryanne – not only that she saw the true value our house had to offer, but she also convinced us that it would sell within one month after we put it on the market. The same night, she emailed me an informative Pre-Listing Packet, a comparative market analysis and a proposal with three scenarios. Her confident and can-do attitude quickly won our trust. Since we were not in a hurry, we decided to renovate the house for a higher ROI. The renovation took about a month. We were very impressed by Ryanne and her team at Austin Properties Group. They were very organized and managed the entire project meticulously, always made sure it stayed reasonably within budget and schedule, and they constantly updated us with the progress. Our property was transformed from an average to a very attractive house with many quality improvements. The house was sold within less than two weeks at a price that made us very happy, and in a condition that we hope the buyer would enjoy for many years to come.
Ryanne is very passionate about her work, very knowledgeable and understands the real estate strategy extremely well. She really cares about her clients – we knew it because she always makes us felt that we got 100% of her attention. From the first phone call, she never fails to patiently explain so many things to us, always logical, from the first proposal, repairs and renovation, launching to the market, negotiation, and finally closing. Ryanne and the staff at APG are truly amazing, very responsive, absolutely professional, and uphold a high ethic standard. Thank you so much!
Ryanne Vaughan and her team are fantastic and a pleasure to work with! Our home was unique for the area it was in, a brand new, custom-designed, custom-built house with design cues taken from the last century that sat in the middle of a beautifully wooded acreage lot. Most realtors we interviewed didn’t know how to value the home besides plugging in the square footage, acreage, and number of bedrooms/bathrooms into a pre-programmed calculator that in no way took into account the intrinsic value of the home. Several realtors scoffed at us when we told them what we thought our home was worth and thought it should be listed for, telling us it would never sell for that amount. However, as soon as Ryanne saw our home, she not only saw the value, but also laid out a plan to effectively market it to the right audience. We ended up selling our house within a few months for a price within a few thousand dollars of what we thought it was worth.
Ryanne made the whole process as painless as selling a house can be. She listened, her response time was always quick, and she had answers to questions we didn’t even realize we should be asking.
If we were to buy or sell a house in the Austin area again, we would not waste our time interviewing any other realtors. Ryanne and her team would be our hands down first and only choice.
We listed and bought our new home with Ryanne and her team at APG. Everything the team does is top notch. Selling and buying a house is a stressful process, however the team did everything they could to make it a seamless transition for us, and we couldn't be happier with the results! There is definetly no one better than Ryanne, Anthony, Dillar and the rest of the APG team. We are telling everyone we know to call APG!
Sold a Single Family home in 2014 in St. Edwards, Austin, TX.
Thank you for the professional service of rehab work and sales effort in making this experience one to Remember.. Your Team brought their A game and it showed with the elevated net sale of the property.
My husband and I were relocating to Austin from Mexico and started working with Amanda, she took everything we told her we wanted into account and found an amazing apartment that we loved but we encounter some problems with the apartment owner, he wouldn't rent us the apartment and we even offer to pay the year in advance, but she was very helpful, honest and cared for our benefit and found us a better apartment than the one before, she helped us every step of the way to make the move as easy and fast as we needed. We would definitely recommend Amanda and the Austin Properties.
I don't typically write reviews, but I'm compelled to share my good fortune in finding Ryanne and her team. Ryanne has been a godsend. She's smart and creative and goes above and beyond. Her expertise and knowledge are exemplary. I recommend her and her team for all your real estate needs. They are awesome!!
We I recently sold an income property, a single family home, in the Austin area. Initially we had my property manager attempt to sell the home but after a series of missteps, we decided to interview a number of selling real estate agents and see if we could find someone to better handle the sale.
After a series of interviews it became clear that Ryanne Vaughan and her Austin Property Group had quite an edge over the other agents. Not only was their analysis of the competitive market more thorough than any other agent’s, her understanding of the market and how to market my house was more thorough than any other agent’s. Additionally Ryanne advised me specifically on what things in the house could/should be upgraded, and what kind of return we would expect for the various upgrades. Her approach was knowledge based and logical, and her confidence instilled confidence in us as well. She orchestrated all the upgrades on which we decided and made the whole process effortless on our part.
When all was said and done, we received not only the full price at which the house was listed, but triple the return on the upgrades/investments we decided to make. She handled the negotiations in our best interest and we couldn’t have been happier with the whole process, and the professionalism and confidence with which Ryanne and her Austin Property Group handled the entire process.
So, I very much wanted to the opportunity to highly recommend Ryanne and her team as a selling agent and would not hesitate to do business with them again. They are pros all the way through the process, and their results prove it.
Ryanne is highly professional, very friendly and just the kind of a person you would need to take you through the stress full process of selling the home in a very STRESS FREE manner. Ryanne was spot on, on the price of the home. She was very upfront with the list of things that need to be up-graded/ fixed and best of all, Ryanne helped me find the service providers. She has a very good network of service providers who are very committed and have always quoted lesser than the other service providers I contacted. Ryanne and her team staged my home to show it at its best, and sold my house for more than any other home in my neighborhood. I could not have asked for a better realtor for selling my house. I will absolutely recommend Ryanne to all my friends who want to sell their home in a timely and stress free manner.
Bought a Single Family home in 2013 in Pflugerville, TX.
WOW - is all i can say about this team ! Dillar and Ryanne did an awesome job on helping us out with the purchase of a new home. WE had a bad experience with the first realtor we dealt with and he left us mortified in realtors. Now i can honestly say, she has definately got our back and will fight for us anyway she can. The entire team made it as painless as possible and wanted us to be happy in our new home. I definately recommend to work with Ryanne and the Austin Property Group team. If you are looking for someone who will make sure you get the best deal and make sure you are not being taken advantage of, definately count on Ryanne and her team.
Being a selling virgin, I interviewed three real estate agents before selecting Ryanne Vaughan. It was the best decision I could have made. Ryanne is professional, caring, helpful, and considerate of the stress related to selling my family home. Ryanne not only staged my home to show it at its best, but sold my house for more than any other home in my neighborhood. Ryanne held my hand every step of the way, relieved any stress I had, and was my best friend during the entire process. I very highly recommend anyone buying or selling a home in Austin to consider this superb agent!
