Zoe Wafelbakker


I'm a New Zealander that has called Austin home since 2014. My husband and young daughter at the time relocated from London, UK due to my husband's tech job. Having grown up on a farm in New Zealand I have always wanted space, I didn't want to be a farmer, but I wanted more space than what the UK could offer. So when Mark was offered the job here, we jumped at it, I can confidently say it's one of the best decisions we have made.

My career over the last 25 odd years has spanned from logistics and project management to tourism, it has enabled me to live in some amazing countries like Greece, The Netherlands, Australia and the UK. When we moved I knew that I didn't want to go back to being a Project Analyst so I took a hard look at what I wanted my new career to be. I absolutely loved that we were represented when purchasing a home here (not available in other parts of the world) and that our REALTOR operated as his own business. So I got licensed and have been assisting buyers and sellers in the Austin market since 2016.

I would categorize my business as relationship based. My clients are going through one of the biggest decisions of their lives and it's crucial who they have on their team, so I take the job of helping my clients very seriously to ensure that they have the best possible experience and are expertly guided through the process of buying or selling a home. For me it's not just the one one transaction, the relationship continues for years beyond as their trusted adviser and often friend!

My strength has always been to keep a cool head in challenging situations and to find a solution. There is always a solution. My client's love that as well as my energy, knowledge and professionalism. My work and life ethic is to be the best I can be, for my family, clients, community and myself!

I live in South Austin with my husband, Mark, three children and a frug (frenchie/pug dog). Outside of work and often in the very early hours of the day you'll find me training for triathlons or hitting the awesome trails in and around Austin with my wee crew.

Zoe recently helped us sell our home in Bear Creek Crossing. Our sale was tricky due to having already relocated out of state but Zoe was incredible through the process. She was by our side from start to finish. Zoe is knowledgeable, responsive, and honest. She was able to set up realistic expectations and kept in consistent contact to keep us up to date. Zoe was truly a champion for us. We couldn’t be more grateful for having had her in our corner.

Working with Zoe was a delight. She was professional, experienced, communicative, and prompt. Would recommend her and her brokerage to anyone!

I bought my first home on the East side of Austin while working with Zoe Wafelbakker a few months ago, and I had an excellent, seamless experience. Zoe was always available to answer questions (and I had many) and her Austin real estate expertise and interpersonal skills are top-notch. She handled the few minor issues and hurdles we faced with ease and grace which meant the buying process was fairly stress-free for me, and we never had to deal with full-on problems.

I highly recommend Bramlett and Zoe if you are looking to buy a home in Austin and would like to work with someone who really understands the market and its players and maintains excellent relationships with the other agents in town.

Zoe Wafelbakker was a great choice to sell my home. Excellent advice on preparing the property for sale (including helpful referrals to contractors), setting the price, and all the steps after the house was listed. The very appealing online presentation of the house led to a rapid sale. Most helpful was Zoe’s very detailed and concise comparison of the many offers received. Zoe is highly recommended.

We LOVE working with Zoe, and so much that we have done it 3 times! Most recently, Zoe has helped us sell our house in Austin as we were relocating to another state in the middle of a pandemic. We had so many things to worry about with regard to our move and she made sure selling our house wasn’t one of them. Her upbeat, patient and caring personality was extremely helpful and motivating as we were getting the house ready to put on the market. She was by our side throughout the entire process and her expertise and guidance are the reason our house went under contract in 3 days above the asking price. In the middle of a pandemic! I mention that twice because her deep knowledge of the real estate market was everything in such uncertain times.

Working with Zoe Wafelbakker was an absolute pleasure. From start to finish, she made herself available for all aspects of the home-buying process. I could not have asked for a better realtor to get us through buying our first home.

Zoe Wafelbakker was the absolute best realtor! As a first-time home buyer, she was able to walk me through the entire home-buying experience from start to finish, and always made herself available to answer any and all of my questions. Not only is she an experienced realtor, but she is also incredibly nice and extremely helpful. I would 1000% recommend Zoe to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.
