Craig McGuire was extremely knowledgeable and helpful with our selling process. He took his time to explain everything, and really went above and beyond to make sure we were well-advised. He had great attention to detail, and is very personable — he even sent us cake pops for our birthdays! Highly recommend Craig, and I would use him again.
Craig played a pivotal role in helping us get into our new home. He went above and beyond in communicating directly with our builder on ways to bridge the gap between the sale of our current home and the purchase of our new one. He attended each and every meeting with our builder, and made sure to point out areas we hadn’t even considered. We felt we were truly in great hands with Craig, and it couldn’t have been a more enjoyable or seamless experience. We would absolutely work with Craig again. He is extremely professional, trustworthy and looks out for your best interest.
High praises for Bramlett Residential Real Estate. We absolutely loved working with Craig McGuire and his team. He was great at explaining every step of the process. Champion at answering all our questions, not just about the house buying process, but also pretty much anything house related. It was very easy reaching Craig, he responded quickly and checked in with us regularly during the process. We had a great time visiting different properties with Stacy Zellner. She pointed out many details we would not even think about. Overall, great job for Bramlett Residential Real Estate, the whole team was professional, efficient, and knowledgeable.
Craig McGuire recently helped me with the purchase of my first home. As a first time homebuyer, I had many questions and concerns, all of which were addressed and answered by Craig. He’s extremely knowledgeable and response throughout the whole process. I would recommend him to friends and family and anybody else looking for an agent!
Working with Craig and the Eric Bramlett team has been an absolute pleasure. It is my second time buying a house thanks to Craig. He has been diligent and helpful in sharing his knowledge over the last months. Craig has guided me throughout the whole process from research to signing. I’m very grateful, and I highly recommend working with him!
Craig McGuire was an incredible asset to us as we sold our Austin home! Have had many real estate transactions, but Craig helped us navigate an “interesting” market, was always available, and truly a problem-solver with a great work ethic. 10/10 would recommend him to anyone buying or selling!
The experience of buying a home from out of state, in a competitive market felt overwhelming at first. Working with Craig McGuire and team helped us feel secure and heard at every step of the way. Stacy was able to video tour us through potential homes. When we did visit Pflugerville to tour in person we were well taken care of and found our new home the very first day!! Then Craig hustled to get our offer in fast and secured the deal. Very happy and appreciative of the team.
Craig McGuire and the Bramlett Real Estate team did a fantastic job in selling our Austin home. We were in California but Craig took care of beautifully staging the house and everything that was needed to get it ready for sale, including the installation of a new refrigerator. Craig moved fast and the house sold in a few days for $100k+ over the listing price. Craig made sure that the process went smoothly and he effectively collaborated with the buyers until we closed. Having Craig as a trusted realtor made us feel safe about selling our house remotely. I highly recommend Craig and the Bramlett Real Estate team — their methodology works and they delivered superbly above expectations!a
My husband and I highly recommend working with Craig McGuire at Bramlett Residential. We were lucky enough to find Craig to help with the purchase of our first home and he was fantastic to work with. The Austin market was really tough but Craig was there every step of the way. He made sure we were able to get in and see every house we liked at a time that worked well for our schedules. He had answers to every question and as first time home buyers, we had a lot! He was honest, encouraging and patient. Craig is great at building relationships which is key in various ways, but to name a few-you feel like you’re talking to a trusted friend when you’re evaluating a home or making decisions on an offer. He listens and respects what you want while providing great advice. He has so much knowledge of the market and houses in general and genuinly wants to make sure his clients are happy. Additionally, his relationship making provided us great contacts for other home necessities including options for lenders. As transplants in Austin, those contacts were enormously helpful. And finally, we had no qualms when he initiated contact with seller agents. We knew he would be professional, friendly and have our best interests at heart. We really can’t thank Craig enough for all his help and guidance. We are so excited to move into our home!
While selling any house is stressful, moving and selling a parents’ home provides a unique set of difficulties. Craig McGuire with Bramlett Residential Real Estate created an open space of communication, calm, and solutions. This fostered an environment for a smooth and very successful sell. I found Craig McGuire through word of mouth. After doing further research and meeting with Craig, I found his services would meet my needs. Craig uses data, analytics, and social media to best price and promote the sale as an investment property. I am very happy with Craig’s personal and professional approach and with the outcome of the sale of the house with as little stress as I could hope for during a difficult situation.
We had a very good experience working with Craig McGuire for our house hunting needs! He was very prompt, professional, and made us feel very supported across the entire process. Craig’s well rounded and extensive background in real estate was a huge asset to have. He’s extremely knowledgeable about the Austin real estate market. Ultimately we got the house we wanted, quickly, at the price we desired, and with the contingencies we needed. Thanks Craig!!
Craig McGuire went above and beyond for us when we started looking for our first home last December. Craig was very flexible with our schedules and was able to meet up with us when we needed him. We signed our contract with KB homes in January. Even though our house didn’t break ground until June, Craig checked in with us to see if we had any questions. Communication was phenomenal. He answered all our questions and was there for us every step of the way. Craig was very knowledgeable, patient, and very honest during the whole process. Craig really cares about his clients and we would highly recommend working with him when it comes to buying a house in the Austin area.
Our experience as first time home buyers with Craig McGuire was excellent! Throughout the whole process he was quick to answer any questions we had. After the inspection was finished he made sure that we understood what each item on the report meant and about how much it would cost to address. He made sure that we had a competitive offer that we were confident in, which put us at ease. Overall would highly recommend!
Craig McGuire at Bramlett was the most professional, friendly and accommodating Real Estate Agent we had in Austin. Craig was always available to answer our questions and he went above his duties to recommend contractors to improve the home we purchased. Craig is passionate about his job and family. I would recommend Craig to anyone who is looking into purchasing a property in the Austin area.
Craig is truly great at what he does. We first worked with him as our buyer’s agent when moving to the Austin area. This time around, we chose him to be our listing agent when we we relocating away from the area and we are glad we did. Craig was always available for followup regarding processes and questions we had-from listing all the way to closing day. He always made sure to keep us up to date with any information we needed. Craig has a great understanding of the market and is straightforward & honest, which we valued. I couldn’t sing his praises more.
We worked with Craig McGuire and he was phenomenal from start to finish with regards to selling our home. He was detailed and very thorough in how he navigated us through the selling process. I would most certainly recommend him to anyone that is looking to buy or sell their home and in fact we are using his vast expertise as well to build new future home over the next year.
Worked with Craig McGuire of Bramlett Residential and had the best home buying experience. My wife, Diana, is a realtor in Pennsylvania, so we know something about the process and customer service. Relocating to Austin can be daunting, especially with not knowing the landscape and areas most in tune with our needs. Craig met with us virtually several weeks before our first trip to Austin. His efforts to get to know us and to define initial search criteria was a welcome experience. We were able to critique many homes before arrival, which allowed Craig to zero-in to our unique needs. Wow! Craig produced home showing plans that were outstanding. He spent at least three days showing homes and was extremely attentive. We decided on a home that is perfect for us and through Craig’s knowledge of the competitive market, guided us into an offer that was accepted first off. No horrow stories for us and a big thanks to Craig. A true gentleman and consumate professional. I highly recommend working with Craig!
We worked with Craig McGuire in our Austin house search, and he is awesome! Thanks to him, we closed successfully on our new home. Being first time home buyers, we did not understand the process and steps involved. And to make matters worse, the Austin housing market was absolutely crazy for buyers. Craig was very patient with us, guiding us through the home buying process, answering our questions and helping us understand the local real-estate trends. He would always double check if we are comfortable with the price we are bidding, to ensure we are thinking it through and not making an impulsive bid out of frustration. Very professional, always responsive and reliable. Will definitely recommend Craig to my friends.
Today’s real estate market has remarkably changed. You now have to compete against not only higher prices, limited inventory but also multiple bids. Craig McGuire was excellent in his approach to what is available, how to negotiate and offer the most attractive contract in a bidding war and also making sure that he is available to show when something does come on the market. I got out-bidded three times but in the end it was definitely worth it for finding the best home and more room for your buck.
I would definitely encourage anyone looking for a home, condo or lot to reach out to Craig for the best advice and strategy for buying that home.
We worked with Craig McGuire at Bramlett, we have all praise for him. During these hostile months for buyers, the housing market was heavily tilted towards sellers. Craig was very patient and kind. At times when we were very much down emotionally because of losing a bid or two very narrowly, he would say all the right things to keep us on the look out for another home that would be even better fit. We ended up with a home that we like a lot, and a lot of the credit goes to Craig helping us and having timely discussions with seller’s agent(s) all the time. If anything, Craig was only more cautious to not let his clients unnecessarily bid too high without being comfortable. We definitely recommend Craig’s services with Bramlett.
I was initially quite leery of entering the crazy Austin Real Estate market. I’d heard horror stories about bidding wars with over 30 offers, having to pay $100,000 over asking price, and houses not appraising for the contract price. When I first spoke with Craig McGuire of Bramlett Residential Real Estate, he was realistic about the current market, but optimistic that he would find me a place that I would love and would feel comfortable with the purchasing process. Early on, I found a couple of homes that I was tempted to submit an offer for. Craig was thorough in his research of the homes and comps and was able to steer me away from a house that was not going to appraise and another that had potential to be a messy situation all around. When I finally found “the one” Craig went above and beyond to help me put together a strong offer that I could feel comfortable with. He made himself available whenever I need to talk out the situation and alleviate any of my concerns. Ultimately, I was able to have a quick closing on a house that I love with a purchasing situation that was definitely not the nightmare that I had feared. For someone who is considering wading into the Austin Real Estate market, I wholeheartedly recommend working with Craig McGuire!
The transaction went very smooth. Craig was very knowledgable and helpful every step of the way. This was our first time buying new construction and Craig was very helpful in navigating the ways it differs from buying an existing home. Honestly, Craig went above and beyond. We were out of state buyers so Craig was literally our eyes and ears on the ground. He especially went above and beyond after the ice storm. On the day he got back in town (after being strand out of town himself due to the storm), he went over to our house to inspect it for any damage related to the storm that would have delayed our closing which was 2 weeks away.
Craig McGuire has been exceptional throughout our home buying journey. The whole process was such a mystery to us initially but everything seemed to effortlessly fall into place with the help and guidance that Craig provided. I was particularly impressed with how informed Craig is and that he was able to communicate his knowledge to us so that we could make calculated decisions. To top it off, Craig is cordial and has a great sense of awareness. We would not hesitate to work with Craig or anyone at Bramlett Residential in the future.
My wife and I, somewhat on a whim, decided to start looking into options of building a home out of state, and the Austin area is where we ended up honing our search.
A Yelp search for Austin realtors brought up highly rated Bramlett Residential, and a handful of other highly rated real estate firms that I ended up reaching out to so that we could recruit a realtor to teach us a bit more about the Austin area, and to help us figure out where around Austin we wanted to narrow our search.
Craig McGuire from Bramlett was the first to reach out to me – within 30 mins of submitting my online inquiry, Craig reached out to me via phone to introduce himself and to gather some information about what it was my wife and I were looking for. From there, the rest is history.
The most nerve wracking aspect of this process was the fact that we were out of state buyers looking to build a home in an area that my wife and I were not familiar with. On top of that, once we settled on a location, my wife & I would rarely be present during the build process.
We cannot thank Craig enough for the all of his help and insight he provided us throughout the nearly 9 months of working with us. Craig made the entire process easy, and left us with much less stress than we had anticipated we’d be faced with.
Craig was always willing to text, talk via phone, conduct FaceTime sessions, etc. so that we had the information we needed, to answer our questions, to walk us through the home as the build progressed, and to act as someone that gave us general guidance at any point in the process.
Another thing I appreciated about Craig was his non-real estate background and what that brought to the table. Craig’s personal background in both construction and lending were also extremely valuable and insightful throughout the process, and helps to shape Craig’s overall value as a realtor.
We were never pressured with Craig – he always wanted to make sure we were as informed as possible before making any decision.
We couldn’t be more pleased with Craig and what he offered us during our 9 month build process. Whether an in-state buyer, or an out-of-state buyer, I’d recommend Craig McGuire & Bramlett Residential to anyone, without question.
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!
Craig McGuire has been phenomenal to work with. We were moving from out of state and needed an agent that would show up, work hard, and be our eyes and ears. Throughout our entire buying process, Craig was exactly what we needed. He is super thorough and super knowledgeable about Austin and the surrounding area. We look forward to working with him again in the future and HIGHLY recommend him to anyone looking to buy in this incredibly hot (and sometimes difficult) market!
My family relocated from out of state and worked with Craig to purchase our home in Austin. He is extremely knowledgeable of the local areas and how each of those fit our unique needs to make sure we land in the right spot. He conveyed all negotiations and deadlines in a very professional manner for us to feel comfortable. Extremely responsive. The process was smooth from start to finish. We are so happy with our home and can’t say enough good things about Craig. Highly recommend!
Worked with Craig McGuire this year before and after Covid started popping up.
Incredibly helpful, polite, patient, and professional. As a first time home buyer, he took me all across Austin and North Austin, and helped me in a million ways I couldn’t have imagined. I ended up getting a house I am very happy with in Leander, Tx at a good price.
He was very responsive, and discussed exactly what I was looking for in a house and investment property. He recommended a house inspector I was very happy with, and was willing to visit properties on fairly short notice, and staying out fairly late after work.
He was able to point out a lot of flaws in a house that I would never have noticed, and was very down to earth. He didn’t push a sale, and didn’t question if I was wasting him time. (I had him look at a very large range of cheaper and more expensive houses.) I can be a bit of a nervous person, so I hate the idea of wasting others time, but he was very respectful and open to every house that I brought up. Some of these houses were very important learning experiences as I started to better understand the area, which made me feel confident when I finally found the right one at the right price.
Craig helped me through the entire process, keeping me posted on email, and setting me up to look at houses in a very large area. When he didn’t know something (San Antonio Market) he recommended someone else to work with.
I was incredibly happy with Craig’s assistance. I’ll be using him again if I need to buy another house in the area and have already recommended him to some of my friends. Please consider calling him and look at a few houses together. I believe that he will impress.
Everything with our home buying process went astonishingly smoothly, from the first call with Craig for him to get a sense of what we were looking for all the way through closing. My husband and I kept joking that something was bound to go wrong since 2020 has been rough in so many ways, but we were both incredibly pleased when everything went perfectly. Craig went above and beyond to help us through this process. Being first-time, out-of-state home buyers, we started out intimidated by the process and a bit overwhelmed by all of the moving pieces. But Craig was there from start to finish, taking as much time as we needed to answer all of our questions, big and small, in a knowledgeable and friendly way. We put a lot of trust in Craig since we were still out of town for the final walkthrough and closing and he exceeded our expectations with his attention to detail, his responsiveness, his standing up for our needs with the builders, and how well he kept us in the loop each step of the way. I know he balances a bunch of clients at once, but we always felt like his top priority and we simply couldn’t be any happier with his work. Everything was just that perfect. This was an incredible experience and we’re so happy in our new home!
Recently, my husband and I decided to take a life changing step and move to the Austin area for a job opportunity. We had never been here before and had no idea what to expect. We also decided to set up a more permanent situation and buy our first house. We had no idea where to start or what to do. Thankfully, we reached out to a friend of ours that had relocated to the Austin area a few years ago and she referred us to Craig McGuire with Bramlett Real Estate. All I can say is WOW! Craig knows what he’s doing and took our fears/worries/anxieties and put them all to rest. He walked us through each and every step, always made us feel in control of our choices, educated us on how selling the property or renting it out in the future would look like, and even gave us decorating/home maintenance advice if we saw a challenging area of a home we weren’t sure what to do with. The passion Craig shows in what he does stood out to me over everything. Each and every house we looked at, he seemed just as excited as we were to open the door and see what was inside. Every time we saw a new property, having Craig with us made us feel like we were looking at a house with an expert friend. He never left us hanging, always answered our questions, (we had thousands of course), and made us feel like we were his best and only clients! If you are still reading this, then grab the phone, call Craig, get the keys to your dream house and start living!
I’ve heard from many people, buying your first house is a nightmare and stressful, anxiety inducing grueling process. Those people have clearly not had the pleasure of working with Craig McGuire with Bramlett Real Estate! My spouse and I were lucky enough to be put in touch with Craig from a referral from a friend, and from our first conversation, we knew he was looking out for our best interests and wanted to make as much of our dreams a reality within our budget. Craig was excited and upbeat and positive throughout the whole process. The Austin market is crazy right now and almost disheartening for newbie buyers, but Craig assured us all would work out fine and squashed any doubt or fear we felt creeping in. He answered every single question we had and gave us a timeline on how things would progress along the way. From the get go when we said what our plans and dreams were, he was onboard and ready to jump on and help us on our quest. WHO just hears some stranger’s dreams and plans and springs into action like that?? There are some good real estate agents out there. But in this market, especially if your are a newbie buyer, good isn’t good enough. Forget the rest, get with the best, call Craig, tell him your plans and dreams and let his best work for you! I did and I’m writing this post from my dream kitchen island in my new dream house!
I had a great experience with Craig McGuire. He took the time to understand what I was looking for and helped me to find the perfect new home to buy. He was very responsive and guided me through the whole process without being pushy. I highly recommend Craig and would be glad to work with him again.
We chose Eric Bramlett Residential Real Estate for our first house based on their online reviews, and they absolutely did not disappoint. Within a couple of hours of sending our callback request via their website (on a Sunday), our agent Craig McGuire called us to answer our questions and determine our new home needs. He immediately sent us information on existing homes as well as builders for the area we were looking at, and made himself available for all of our first-time buyer inquiries. We chose to purchase a new construction home in Buda, and Craig was there every single step of the way. He was proactive in addressing our needs, and made sure we were comfortable with the build process. He made us very much feel that we were a priority, and are relieved to know that we now have an excellent realtor when we are ready to make our next move. Would absolutely recommend to anyone looking to buy (or sell) a home.
Craig McGuire was awesome!!! This was my very first home purchase, and he helped me every step of the way. I had only spent a few months in Austin before moving here from California, and Craig showed me homes all over the city until we found the best neighborhood – and ultimately, the best home – for me. I truly appreciate Craig’s close attention to detail, full transparency, and patience. Never in this process did I feel pressured or rushed, and he answered any questions or concerns thoroughly. And as a first time buyer and new Austin resident, I had SO MANY questions! Even after closing, I’ve texted Craig for recommendations on painters, lawn service, security, etc. and he has been extremely helpful while I get acquainted to Texas living. During an otherwise stressful year, Craig made my first home-buying experience smooth and exciting.
As a first time homebuyer, I couldn’t have gone through the whole process without the help of Craig McGuire. Craig was attentive and patient. He showed me older homes, new builds and was with me every step of the way all the way to closing. He also came with a slew of recommendations for various services like gutter installers, movers, pest control etc. I really appreciated his help and look forward to working with him in the future!
Craig McGuire was more than amazing. he’s the complete package. quick, responsive and gets the job done. responds at all times of the day and weekends as well , we were really impressed with him. will definitely use him again in the future if buying additional homes. referred him to family members and he found their dream home as well within days and they were also equally impressed. looking for a realtor, look no further!
My fiance and I worked with Craig McGuire from Bramlett Residential and are so happy in our new home! As first time home buyers, we both had tons of questions and Craig really helped guide us through the process and answer any questions we came up with. Craig was always quick to respond to all my texts and emails and was able to schedule home viewings on short notice when a new listing popped up. He has so much knowledge of the Austin market and home construction that I felt very confident throughout the whole process. He is very easy to talk to and I never felt like I was not his top priority. If you are looking for an agent, I highly recommend Craig McGuire!
My experience working with Bramlett Residential could not have been any better. Our realtor, Craig McGuire, was fantastic to work with. As first time home buyers, we had a million questions, and Craig was able to answer every one of them. He has a vast knowledge of the industry, and brought up so many good points that we wouldn’t have thought of on our own. I could not speak any higher Bramlett or Craig. Highly recommend.
Craig McGuire was great! I couldn’t have asked for a better representative. He was friendly, patient, responsive, and took the time to get to know me and what I was looking for, even early on when I was looking second hand with a friend.
While I was looking from out of town, he was my eyes and ears on the ground and took the time to send me high quality, commentated videos of what he saw. It really helped me make an informed decision from many miles away. His monthly emails kept me informed when I was unsure of what the market was going to look like while the community was dealing with the coronavirus and his connections kept us rolling through our aggressive closing timeline.
