Ratings & Reviews

I dropped into Austin a few times a month, commuting from the Northwest for my new position in Texas. Each time I visited, Tammy did a great job in helping me get to know the area and really listened to what our needs were. We started working together in late September with the understanding that we needed to have a buyer for our NW home before making a move in Austin. Our home sold relatively fast (70 days) and we were suddenly in a rush to buy in Austin. I flew my wife in for a day and a half of looking at homes. Tammy's prior work with me, and her preparation for our short visit was excellent. We only looked at a few homes the first day and really found the one we wanted. Only problem...a bit out of our top range in price. No problem ! With nothing to lose, Tammy approached the builder with an offer that would work for us and it was accepted right away. Our home appraised for almost 30K more than our purchase price at the time of closing ! That is rare these days ! Tammy even represented us for the final "walk through" and stayed in constant communication until she placed the house keys in our hands. The whole process could not have gone any better from start to finish. You can have complete confidence in Tammy if you are fortunate enough to be able to work with her. Especially if you are relocating from 2000 miles away !

Sold a Single Family home in 2011 in North Austin, Austin, TX.

Tammy has helped my family sell three houses and purchase another, and we have always been thrilled with her responsiveness and professionalism. And we can be tough customers! She won us over with her marketing skills - our properties all looked FABULOUS in the online pictures and flyers - far better than the competition. I'm sure this is why all of our homes sold quickly and for a great price. When it came to choosing a new home, she was very patient and helpful. She was a tough negotiator, and helped us get our dream house for much less than we were expecting. She's also full of great referrals for everything from home inspectors to schools to local restaurants - which comes in handy. I definitely recommmend her services above any other realtor I have worked with.

Sold a home in 2008.

Tammy knows Austin like the back of her hand--not only the geography, but the distinct character of each neighborhood. She was very observant and intuitive through our buying process, choosing properties that really appealed to us. We ended up having a pretty hard time with the seller of our home, but Tammy was there with us every step of the way, constantly mediating and negotiating on behalf of my husband and me. I can't even tell you how great of a job she did selling our old house. She was so great with helping us stage our home for photos and showings, and she made a personalized web site for our listing. Our home sold in nine days for OVER the asking price.

Sold a home in 2009.

Tammy helped us sell our home and purchase a new home. The first thing that distinguished her from other realtors was her extensive knowledge of the schools within each area which was one of our deciding factors since we have an elementary school age child. Tammy was extremely knowledgeable about the different areas that we were interested in and she made it her personal mission to find us the perfect home. She held countless open houses for us and was very honest about what she thought we could get for our house. She proactively acquired neighborhood comps so that we knew what we were up against and so we had a really good idea of what houses like ours were selling for. She would consistently send us houses to look at online when were weren't able to go see them in person but she was always ready and available to go look at houses. In fact, i know she loves to do that so it was always a super-fun to look at houses with her. She has impeccable taste as well. She was extremely buttoned up and professional with the closing of both of our houses and she's so knowledgeable about the neighborhoods and what things sell for that we felt extremely comfortable relying on her to help us figure out our bottom line and asking prices for both houses. Buying and selling a house can be extremely stressful but Tammy made the entire process fun and we had no doubt that she was doing everything she could for us and we trusted her every step of the way. We could not say enough great things about her. I would recommend her to ALL of my friends and we're still calling on her now that we may do some remodeling our current house because we know she'll give us her honest opinion about resale and other decisions.
