Ann Nye came highly recommended to us by a good friend who also used her to purchase a house in Austin and stuck with us for over a year during our transition from CA to TX. There are not enough good things to say about Ann without writing a novel. She is responsive, honest, proactive, has a great pulse on the market, has contacts high and low and is more of a friend helping you buy a house than one of “those” realtors. While looking at houses, she always encouraged us to share our thoughts on what we liked and didn’t like and made a lot of great outside of the box ideas to give us all the fair perspectives on the houses we looked at. When we finally chose the house we wanted to purchase, she patiently walked us extremely green home buyers through the entire process down to the documentation minutiae from start to finish at all times of day any day of the week. We cannot recommend her enough and we ended up recommending her to our parents and she also helped them find a house close to ours! She brought our whole family together in one fell swoop and we could not thank her enough for all she has done for us.
My family’s realtor, Linda Baddour of Bramlett Residential, helped us navigate through the notoriously tricky world of Austin real estate when we bought our first house. Linda took the time to understand what we value in a house when we were exploring the market, and showed us how to evaluate important maintenance considerations between older homes and newer homes. She was also knowledgeable about how to negotiate a great deal with the sellers when it came time to purchase (our offer won thanks to better terms that Linda suggested). I highly recommend her services to anyone who is interested in buying real estate in Austin – you are in great hands!
I had a great experience with Bramlett Residential. This is my second remote purchase with them. I worked with Vicki Duran again and she was exceptional as always. Incredibly on top of her email and crucial follows ups during the home buying process.
She goes above and beyond when it comes to time sensitive communications during the initial stages of closing. Also, as a remote buyer, she was helpful in touring places and showing them to me via video calling. Overall I highly recommend working with Vicki and Bramlett residential if you’re purchasing in Austin.
We cannot say enough good things about our experience with Bramlett Residential, and our realtor Ann Nye. Ann helped us purchase a house in the very competitive South Austin market remotely (from across the country). We could not have done it without Ann. Ann listened to what we were looking for and was willing to put in the time to help us find the “right home”. She provided us multiple videos and FaceTime walk-through of properties, and helped us navigate unique Austin issues like impervious cover restrictions. She provided invaluable suggestions, acted quickly, and always made us feel like finding our house was a priority. She worked tirelessly to find us the perfect home, and was instrumental in ensuring a smooth closing (as well as helping us inspect the property before closing, get cleaning people in the house…) Ann is the best realtor we have ever worked with, and we highly recommend her services if you are looking to buy in Austin.
When my husband and I were ready to sell our home in the Cat Mountain area of Austin, we were fortunate that Kasey Gilliam of Bramlett Residential came highly recommended to us. She not only handled the sale of our house, she oversaw all of the preparations before our house went on the market, even after we had left Austin. She is competent, confident, and friendly, and she helped us beyond the call of duty. Given the seller’s market in Austin when we sold, we ended up with several competing bids, and Kasey guided us through to process of accepting the best one, and securing a backup offer should it be needed. Without hesitation I can recommend her to anyone in need of a real estate agent.
Linda Baddour goes above and beyond in representing my wife and I during our home building process. She came to every walk through and inspection that I asked to her to go to and was even available while I myself was not able to attend.
What I loved most about Linda’s professionalism was the type of questions she would ask our builder in person and via email. Questions I didn’t even think to ask myself. It felt like I had an attorney on my side fighting for me while she was there haha.
Thank you so much Linda for the great assistance during the past 11 months of the home building process. Shyah and I love our new home!
I’ve just bought my second property with Bailey in 3 years and hope for more to come! She has great local knowledge, deep expertise and is very detailed and thorough. I’d highly recommend her!
This review is about Joe Gage, their real estate agent. I’m based in Sam Francisco and was looking for investment property in Austin. I tried out three different agents based on recommendations from different sources, including Yelp. Joe clearly stands out. He’s very patient and responsive. I’m not familiar with the area at all thus had a lot of questions. His email reply contains detailed information of the neighborhood, including shops nearby, schools and so on. He regularly screen houses and give recommendations once he sees a good fit for investment house offered at reasonable price. He’s very knowledgeable about the area. All his recommendations comes with details around why he thinks it’s a good investment and sales/rental data in the neighborhood to justify the price he thinks it’s worth as well as the expected rental income. I found him to be very methodical and organized. He’s not a typical sales person. Maybe this is because he used to be an accountant. Needless to say he earned our trust and we went with him to make the purchase. I was very impressed through the whole process. He’s very calm and never pushy. His recommendation on the bid price was right on and he was very good at following up with various parties to push things through. The process went through very smoothly. If anyone is looking for a good real estate agent in Austin, I’d recommend Joe whole-heartedly. His professionalism and calm personality make him a real pleasure to work with.
I wrote a review of Joe Gage back in 2015 when he helped me acquire two properties in Austin area. Recently I hired Joe again to sell one of these properties. I just have to give him another 5-star reviews. Joe is very thorough and methodical when it comes to real estate transactions. The first time I met him, he struck me more as a college professor or an accountant rather than a real estate agent. He knows the local market inside out and the price he recommended was spot on. The house was put on market for less than a week and we received 4 offers. We decided to go with the cash offer at the offer price. It can’t get any better than this! The whole transaction was super smooth and Joe provided valuable guidance along the way. If you want to buy or sell a house in Austin area, give Joe a call and you won’t be disappointed. This is someone that you can trust and will work hard on your behalf. You can’t go wrong with him.
I am from out of town and it’s really important to find someone who has extensive knowledge in rental properties in the Austin area. I am really glad to have Joe Gage as my agent. He was very thorough in finding the type of properties that I was looking for. He was very professional and helpful in the whole process. I bought the single family home in 2014 which turned out to be a great investment. I would highly recommend Joe if you are looking for a realtor.
I worked with Joe Gage of Crossland Properties to buy an investment property in Austin. The circumstances were extra challenging because I live in the UK and I was buying the property in my self directed IRA. Joe was patient, reliable and communicative in walking through all the specific requirements and constraints. I would highly recommend Joe for any real estate needs you may have. He is honest and straightforward and always keeps his clients needs as his priority.
He also found a reliable property manager to manage the property!
I have lived in Austin most of my life, and finally scraped together the pennies to purchase my first home. Being very frugal with my money, I spoke with a handful of real estate agents, many who were noticeably eager to “earn my business.” Joe Gage stood out from the crowd with his calm demeanor and absolute priority on understanding my goals.
My second concern once moving forward, was having a either a “salesman realtor”, one who is more interested in making the sale or alternatively the “lethargic realtor”, one that doesn’t follow through after you take the initial steps with them. These are the things you can only learn about your realtor as you spend time searching for a home and visiting them. I can say without a doubt, Joe was neither of these things.
Joe helped bring my dreams into a reality. He was with me every step of the way, and made sure that we were looking at properties that matched my long list of criteria. If you are looking for a home in the Austin Area, give Joe Gage a ring and at least consider him along with the other agents you have talked to. If nothing else, talk to him so you can set a good benchmark for the “gold standard” in real estate purchasing. But I will say that I would be surprised if you can find a better agent that has his level of experience and expertise in the Austin market.
