Lauren was superlative as always. There’s a reason I’ve worked with her on a dozen transactions or so and will continue to do so.
The transaction was easy as could be. Lauren is amazing and makes transactions so easy. She goes above and beyond to make sure everything runs smoothly and even helps to coordinate inspections, repairs ect. We have now bought two homes and sold one with Lauren and all three transactions have been a breeze. Not to mention that both purchases were highly competitive and she was great at strategizing and we got them both. Since working with Lauren we have also bought and sold homes in other states and both times we had to do so much more and it was a much bigger hassle. We often talk about how we need a Lauren in the other states we own in. We actually had a conversation recently about how we may as well keep investing in Austin because Lauren makes it so easy.
We were in Austin in December 2020 for home leave from my assignment overseas, and had been planning to buy our retirement home in the summer of 2021 and just look around in the week before Christmas. I reached out to Bramlett – having had a very good experience working with them in the summer of 2016 (Tara McGuire was out agent then) to buy our first house (also in Austin). Our agent, Craig McGuire, did thorough research that he shared with us, and advised us – without pressuring us – to consider buying then, given that what we wanted would be well beyond our price point by the summer because of the conditions in the Austin market for the foreseeable future. Observing all the correct COVID-19 protocols, he showed us houses that fit what we were looking for, and once we saw one that we really wanted, gave us the advice needed to help us to win a bidding contest without breaking the bank. This was really important, as after putting in our bid we had to leave Austin and do everything at a distance. Craig was key to making that possible. He found us a good mortgage company that qualified us quickly and, thanks to all his efforts and consistent support, we were able to close in a little over a month – in the time of COVID, doing everything very long-distance, and in a crazy Austin housing market. We’re very happy with our home purchase, and with Craig!
This is my second time working with Vicki and she’s an absolute star. We loved working with her and she is one of the best in the business.10/10! Vicki is an incredible advocate for the buyer, potentially to her own detriment- which gives me a deep level of trust and confidence. She was ready to negotiate hard even when we were not, and she talked us down from overpaying for a house (when she could have gone along with it and enjoyed a better commission). She truly had our best interests from start to finish, and thanks to that she has a client for life.
I selected Katie Evans as our realtor after speaking to several others as she was the most polite, attentive and patient realtor.
She was very responsive and worked very hard to get us the home we had in mind.
She is the best! I would totally recommend her in a heartbeat!!
We recently had the pleasure of working with Will Mackintosh and his team from Bramlett Residential. Will and his team made us feel comfortable to ask any and all questions that come with selling a home. What we loved most about working with them was the quick response time, whether it was through email, text or phone call, we were never disappointed. We also like the attention to detail that was provided to us throughout the process. We knew exactly when & what needed to be done on our end and it made working with them a breeze! If you are in the Austin area and looking to buy or sell your home, we highly recommend Will, Felix, and Brianna at Bramlett Residential.
I am extremely happy working with Ashley . Anytime I asked or needed anything she would have it done before I could hang up the phone I will recommend her and your firm to anyone looking for real estate. She knew the market and helped me win the bid which I found out later that there was 6 other prospects bidding on this property. Ashley even set up my loan at a fabulous rate I am a fan of her and her team
I worked with Vicki Duran to pickup a lovely new build in Georgetown. I was moving from CA, so the logistics were a bit challenging, but Vicki worked with me closely to accommodate my house house search when I would come to town to view homes. She was patient, knowledgeable, professional and all around great to get to know over the course of my home search! P.S. Despite Vicki being very busy, she will always make you feel like you’re her only client. Somehow, she manages to be quite responsive despite the high volume of work she comes across in today’s insane Austin-area market.I would highly recommend Vicki for any real estate needs and I’ll be working with her again very soon!
To whom it may concern;
Ahem… Vicki Duran was an absolute rock star!
Abridged Version: We closed on time at a lower price than expected and could not be happier!
Unabridged Version: As a first time home buyer, she repeatedly handed me answers to questions I hadn’t even come up with yet. Then for those few questions that did manage to remain unanswered long enough to leave my mouth, she quickly produced either answers or resources where I could find said answers.
Our home viewing tour that ranged all over the greater North Austin area was exceedingly well organized (everything moved quick, but nothing felt rushed). Then, after we pounced on a new construction, Vicki made herself available to help us review the builder’s contract and walked through the property with us for the pre-closing inspection. I’m pretty sure she had some magical surgeon in a far-off land swap her human eyes out for those of a falcon, but I didn’t get a good enough look to confirm this.
We recently closed on a house where Vicki Duran represented us and we had a wonderful experience throughout the process – right from putting in an offer all the way to the closing. We reached out to Vicki a few years ago when we were in the market for a house but then our plans changed and we put the home buying on hold. When we were ready again we contacted Vicki and I was happy to see that she still remembered us and was very responsive to us even though she was busy with a lot of other clients. She also educated us very well during the process with Dos and Donts. I would highly recommend Vicki or anyone else on her team.
I recently worked with Linda and successfully on closed a property that was a bit of a long shot. We cold called and she was immediately helpful in getting us information about the place, finding out where we could get answers to some complicated zoning questions, and communicating with the seller’s agent. We eventually had our offer accepted after several prior ones fell through – this was definitely a case where a good agent keeping us on the seller’s radar was a necessity in making this happen. We were also able to complete the deal from out of town, which can often be difficult but Linda made it simple and straightforward. She also has a good network – we’ve been satisfied with the professionals that she has referred us to for inspections, etc.
Craig McGuire saved us a lot of time and money. His knowledge of market trends and figures provided us with enough confidence to make quick, sound decisions in a very competitive area.
