We used the services of Clive to buy a condo unit in Austin. The seller did not have an agent and Clive had to do the work of both the agents.
He was very impressive and professional and had to do a lot of work on educating the seller, while acting as a buyers agent for me. I would highly recommend Clive and wound definitely use him for our future real estate needs in Austin, as well as highly recommend home to my friends and family.
He was very prompt in returning my call as well as very professional in all our transactions.
Clive is by far the best realtor I’ve ever worked with and proved it again by helping us sell our rental property recently. My husband and I had been tossing around selling the property, and Clive did a ton of research to help us decide if the numbers made sense and to also weigh the pros and cons of listing the house while our tenants were still occupying the home. He jumped through hoops to pull off a perfect open house the only weekend our tenants were out of town and we had multiple offers within days of the listing. All of his recommendations were spot on! We accepted a cash offer and were closed within record time. We did have many curve balls thrown along the way from someone writing profanity in black marker by the front door hours before the open house (yes, this really happened!) to the buyer’s inexperienced agent making a costly mistake on the offer letter that could have jeopardized the entire transaction. Clive definitely went above and beyond throughout the whole process, and I know we wouldn’t have sold the house so quickly and for the price we got without his expertise. This is the 3rd transaction in which Clive has been our realtor, and he is 3 for 3! We have complete trust in Clive, and he is truly a pleasure to work with – just a great person all around. Without question if we buy or sell a home in Austin, Clive will be our man.

Clive's skill in negotiating the purchase of our wooded property was unprecedented. Through it all, he was positive yet realistic in navigating an uncommonly challenging appraisal debacle. Without his expertise, we probably would not be sitting here on our new back porch in the country, enjoying the stars and crickets.
As for listing our property, he took such pains to ensure that our home was staged to perfection, even going so far as providing many of the props. And to our surprise, within days of closing on our new home, we got our first and only offer. We so appreciated Clive's expertise in managing even the tiniest details, to secure the deal, and we are on our way to closing this chapter.
We just moved into our new home, and Clive helped us get here! We had a great experience along the way. Clive gave great advice, and was very responsive any time I had a question or concern. I never felt pressured, and immediately trusted his opinions. I would absolutely recommend Clive to a friend! We are very happy with our new home, and will reach out to Clive again in the future for any other real estate needs.
Clive is the best service professional I've worked with. His proactive communication was superb, reaching out during quiet periods and busy periods. Clive was happy to tackle tough negotiations with the builder; he was also happy to hold our baby so we could finalize decisions. We relocated from Sacramento to Austin in a very tight time frame. He kept us on track before our house hunting trip. During the trip, we felt like his only client, and found our house after three long days of searching. The house was being built and had two months to completion. During those two months, Clive was very active negotiating with the builder, closing issues with the bank, and helping us in any way - since we were still in Sacramento. He was always a joy to talk to, and we felt like our needs were always put first. We've used other brokers and felt like we chased them for everything. I wish all my interactions were with a professional on par with Clive. We cannot say enough nice things about him. He is a wonderful realtor and now a great friend that we are grateful to have in our corner.

I guess I didn't quite know what I was getting myself into with purchasing my first home, but Clive made the whole experience enjoyable and manageable. His recommendations, knowledge, and availability were all spot on. He made me feel welcome to ask any questions at anytime, and was always readily available. We thought it would be harder to find a home with the limited amount of inventory in Austin, but Clive's prompt actions helped me find the perfect home quickly. I would highly recommend Clive to anyone in the Austin area looking for a home, as he recently just helped my parents purchase a home, and is in the process of selling theirs.
Helped me rent a Single Family home in Austin, TX.
Actually 5 stars are not enough to express how much our family is satisfied with Clive's service. During his busiest time, Clive allocated enough time for us to find a house for rent where our two huge bullmastiffs are actually welcome. Not only that! Clive took in account our 4 cars (commercial type including) and prereferences of location, type of rent and size of desired house. Clive was very responsive, uses all available types of communications (phone calls, texting, emails). We had always felt connected, informed and taken care of. Clive took active role in negotiation process. As result, we are paying reasonable rent during the booming rental market. Also, Clive made sure that everything was working out for us after we had moved in and stayed in the house for first couple of weeks. We are very happy with Clive's help. Clive is officially our family real estate agent now. Thank you, Clive! You are AMAZING!
Bought a Single Family home in 2013 in Cedar Park, TX.
As a first time home buyer, I was very nervous about the whole process and had little to no knowledge about how everything worked. I had a lot of questions and Clive was always able to provide an answer in a timely manner. With the insight and expertise he brought, I couldn't have asked for a smoother buying experience. Would recommend to anyone.
Clive helped my wife and I find the perfect house in a very fast moving market. He was very knowledgeable and able to guide us when we needed it and actually listened out our requests. We ended up finding an amazing home, getting an amazing deal, and I would work with Clive again in a heart beat if I ever needed a real estate expert in the future.
Clive was a delight to work with. He was very responsive and helpful in getting my condo sold in a timely manner. This was my first time selling a property and Clive made the process very easy for me. He explained the process well and made sure my expectations were set properly.
We put my condo on the market on a Friday and closed on it two weeks later. Very easy process.
