Bramlett Residential Real Estate group was great! Our realtor, Simon Vand was super helpful and made our first home buying experience a lot of fun. We are thankful we had such a friendly agent and strongly recommend using him in the future!

We worked with April Moreaux of Bramlett Residential to purchase our first home and we were very pleased. As a first time home buyer, we were concerned that our lack of knowledge of the home buying process would be a disadvantage to us. This was not the case though. April was attentive, responsive, and clearly had our best interest in mind throughout the whole process. Our 4 year old ended up really taking a liking to her also as she kept him occupied during walkthroughs. We would highly recommend her as she exceeded all expectations.

It was pleasure working with Tammy Costello from Bramlett Residential Real Estate in finding our home. We could not have imagined the process to be as seamless and easy as it was! As first-time home buyers, Tammy walked us through the process and guided us through each step. She is meticulous, has great communication and negotiation skills. With her help and years of experience, we were able to find our dream home. Thanks for making it so easy, Tammy!

I recently closed on my first home and firmly believe it wouldn’t have happened without Sarah Spacek’s help and experience. She was patient with my many questions, provided a calming presence for me as a first-time home buyer, and always had my best interest in mind. Her communication was timely, clear, and concise as well. She also helped navigate a tricky situation regarding a pending repair and we were still able to close on the originally planned date. Ultimately, I got a great deal on a home I’m happy with thanks to her ability and effort. She even followed up with me a week after I moved in to see how my move went and if I needed anything. I absolutely would recommend her for anyone needing a realtor, and I won’t hesitate to go with her again to buy or sell a home.

We feel incredibly lucky to have found Lindsey Pearlstein as our realtor for our first home purchase, and she made the entire process seamless, even during the busy holiday season.

From the very beginning, Lindsey showed an in-depth knowledge of Austin and the surrounding markets, providing us with invaluable guidance. Despite the holiday season, Lindsey was always available, responding quickly to our texts/emails/calls.

When we sent her a whole bunch of houses that we were interested in, she reviewed them thoroughly and promptly. Her feedback was not only comprehensive but also included important insights, pointing out red flags and what to pay attention to during house tours.

We really loved Lindsey’s honesty as well. She candidly discussed the pros and cons of each property. At no point did we feel rushed or pressured into making decisions.

When we finally found the house we wanted, Lindsey’s negotiation skills truly shined. She helped us in preparing a strong offer and took the time to thoroughly explain each aspect of the offer during a call. Despite multiple competitive offers, our offer was accepted.

Lindsey’s ability to maintain close communication with all parties involved was crucial in expediting the closing process. Despite the holiday rush, we were able to close in just 20 days!

Even after the closing and our move-in, Lindsey has continued to stay in touch, offering assistance if needed. Her dedication to client satisfaction extends beyond the transaction, creating a lasting relationship that we truly appreciate.

We 100% recommend Lindsey to anyone in search of an exceptional realtor!

Abby’s the best! We were first time home buyers and super overwhelmed by the whole process at first, but Abby broke things down for us every step of the way and made everything so easy to understand. She even hustled to set up a showing for a house on the 4th of July for us – talk about dedication! Super impressed with her professionalism and would definitely recommend her to assist with your home-buying journey!

Julie Stoakley with Bramlett Residential was nothing short of personable and helpful from the first contact. Julie explained each step of the way which was nerve-settling for first-time home buyers. There was never any pressure, just kind guidance when we had questions. We would 100% utilize Bramlett and Julie in the future and refer to her as well. Amazing experience!

Working with Meaghan Marks was a great experience! As a first time home buyer, I was oblivious to the process and she helped every step of the way. I would definitely use her again!

First Time Home Buyer Meaghan Marks

We had a great experience working with Patrick Hallett from Bramlett Residential as first-time homebuyers! One of the standout qualities that set Patrick apart from our previous realtor was his complete absence of any pressure tactics. Throughout our home-buying journey, Patrick never once rushed us into making an offer, which greatly reduced the stress associated with this significant life decision.

Patrick’s patience was evident from day one. He took the time to address all of our questions and concerns, providing us with the guidance and information we needed to feel confident in our choices. As novices in the real estate world, we had numerous inquiries, and Patrick’s willingness to explain every detail was a tremendous asset.

Moreover, Patrick’s commitment to our home search was remarkable. He accompanied us to a multitude of open houses, ensuring we had the opportunity to explore a wide range of properties. His knowledge of the local market was evident, and he consistently shared valuable market comps with us. This information was instrumental in helping us make informed decisions when it came time to put forward offers.

Thank you Patrick and Bramlett Residential!

Throughout my entire home first home-buying process Ms. Lisa Sterling was patient enough for me to come to a conclusion on what the right choice for my wife and I.

Not only did I walk away with my dream home she went above and beyond to ensure I got a great deal and took care of many tough talks between the contractor and me.

Robin was an absolute pleasure to work with. As first time home buyers, she provided invaluable guidance on how to best navigate the Austin real estate market and helped curate a great selection of houses for us to look at it. She was also extremely responsive whenever we had any questions and, although we were buying the house remotely, she keep us in the loop each step along the way. Can’t recommend her highly enough!

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.

Buyers First Time Home Buyer Zoe Wafelbakker

Yolanda Johnson from Bramlett Real Estate was amazing from start to finish and stayed in contact with us. Since we were a first time home buyer she helped educate and guide us through the process and made us feel comfortable. She was able to answers all of our questions that we had. I would highly recommended her and she exceeded all expectations. If you’re looking for a realtor that cares and is just as invested as you I would contact Yolanda and her team.

Shaun was awesome! He was super resourceful, knowledgeable and always willing to help. As first time buyers, we didn’t know a lot of things but with Shaun the whole process was way less stressful. Shaun is someone that we could trust knowing that he had our backs and our best interest at heart.

Buyers First Time Home Buyer

It was a pleasure working with Shaun! He helped us close on our first home! From the beginning it felt like a great match, he answered all of our questions with patience and you could tell he knows the market and real estate. We never felt pressured or rushed to jump into anything that wasn’t the right fit and he was very responsive. With his help we found a beautiful home that checked our boxes. For my next property, I‘ll be calling Shaun again.

We had an absolutely great experience working with Jeremy purchasing our very first home. We were recommended to Jeremy by our friends, and we couldn’t be happier that Jeremy was our realtor. As a first time home buyer we had a lot of information to process and always raised plenty of questions to which Jeremy took the time to explain in detail and why it was necessary. Jeremy is very insightful and knowledgable and it shows in his work! Jeremy’s attention to detail has been super helpful in the process of elimination while looking through some resale homes. He was always available and on top of things every step of the way which became very crucial given the market conditions. Jeremy was recognized by some open house agents we came across as someone we are in great hands with, which spoke highly about the quality that Jeremy brings to the process. Jeremy genuinely cared to get to know us and his approachable nature made us feel comfortable within no time. It was super easy talking to him honestly about our likes, dislikes and sometimes even as a sounding board to think through some of the things like a friend. Jeremy’s knowledge and experience, combined with his patient approach, made this otherwise stressful event a smooth and successful process. I highly recommend Jeremy to anyone looking for top-notch realtor services!

Working with Elizabeth Michael on the purchase of my first home was awesome. She was there to answer my questions every step of the way, and made me feel at ease during the process. After searching for a bit and getting clarity on what I was looking for, I found a great home that I knew was for me. Elizabeth helped me put together a strong offer that the sellers accepted the very next day. That’s a hard thing to accomplish in the Austin housing market. I will absolutely be giving her a call when I’m ready to buy my next home!

Buyers Elizabeth Michael First Time Home Buyer

Elizabeth Michael was awesome to work with! As a first time home buyer, she was able to explain the process clearly and professionally, from our first meeting, all the way through closing.

She was very communicative and we never felt we were left in the dark. She fought for us when we needed her to fight for us, and her advice was invaluable. She absolutely excels at navigating the Austin real estate market.

She was also able to recommend a great lender, insurance agent, etc., which made it feel like we had a whole team working for us. I’d recommend working with Elizabeth to everyone I know.

Bramlett Residential made buying our first home easy, seamless, and stress-free! Our realtor, Jeremy Vandermause, was incredibly attentive, detail-oriented, and receptive to what we wanted in a home. He routinely went out of his way to provide us with the most current listings and happily did several walk-throughs for us. He was very informative through the whole home-buying experience and made a complex process feel very simple. We highly recommend Jeremy and Bramlett Residential to anyone looking for a realtor!

Julie is very knowledgeable and she went out of her way to ensure that we, as first time home buyers, understood every part of the process. She took time out to patiently explain every section of the contract and sale deed to us so we know what we are getting into!

First Time Home Buyer Julie Stoakley

Tyson Hombroek was the BEST realtor I could have ever asked for. As a first time home purchaser, he stuck with me for over 2 years as my financial and Austin housing market situation fluctuated and was constantly and consistently communicative with me regarding what I was looking for and what I needed. He spent way more time with me and my family than was required, providing us his own opinions as well as what he thought was best for me. There aren’t enough words to describe the incredible job Tyson did and would 100% recommend him to anyone interested in buying a home in the Austin area. By the end of it Tyson felt as if he became one of the family and a genuine friend. Thank you so much Tyson for everything you did for me, cannot thank you enough.

We just moved to Austin and purchased our first home. Lynn Wise was very helpful throughout the process. She helped us start our search before we even moved, and she was ready to start showing us houses as soon as we arrived in Austin. She made the process go smoothly and was always on top of things and available even during an ice storm when she lost power for a few days! Thanks Lynn and Bramlett Residential!

Buyers First Time Home Buyer Lynn Wise

Tyson was great! He’s been so knowledgeable and helpful throughout the whole process, especially since it’s my first time buying a home. He was very quick to respond and easily worked around our schedules to see different houses! Whenever we had questions for potential houses he always followed up and found the information out for us! Highly recommend him!!

Buyers First Time Home Buyer Tyson Hombroek

It was wonderful to work with Molly Parks in purchasing my first home and an investment property. She made the process smooth and easy (or at least as smooth and easy as home purchasing can be). She was very responsive and accommodating of my schedule and was able to arrange showings at all times of the day.

With Molly’s help and guidance, I was able to see a home, make an offer, and have it accepted all in the same day. Additionally, she was even able to negotiate the price down a little bit on both properties to get them below asking, which is no easy task in the competitive Austin real-estate market. Additionally, she helped me get my leases set up for the investment property and provided valuable advice related to management of the property after the completion of the purchase.

I can’t say enough good things about working with Molly. She is clearly a knowledgeable and responsive professional who has the best interests of her clients in mind. While being professional, she is also relaxed and upbeat and creates a no pressure environment with her clients.

I will absolutely be working with Molly for any of my future home or investment property purchases!


Buyers First Time Home Buyer Molly Parks

Molly is an outstanding real estate agent. I was extremely fortunate to be connected to her through a mutual personal trainer. I had been renting for years, and was interested in finally investing in my own home. Knowing I was a first-time home buyer, she went above and beyond in providing me with a binder and sitting down with me and explaining everything to me. I could take the binder home, make notes, contact her with questions, and she was so happy to share her wealth of knowledge on all the details of searching for homes, putting in offers, and the process of closing. Even when I decided not to buy for an entire year, she not only understood my decision, but kept the perfect distance. She provided me with monthly info about the market and houses within my budget/criteria, but didn’t bug me or harass me at all.
During the shopping process, she was SO patient with me as I thought I knew what I wanted but backed out. I finally got my sweet little starter home at a fantastic price, even though I had to bid against other buyers. Molly was encouraging, always providing helpful insight into each house we looked at, and I would recommend her to absolutely everyone. She’s professional, very intelligent and knowledgeable in her field, and extremely kind and patient.


Buyers First Time Home Buyer Molly Parks

Lynn Wise helped us with our recent home purchase and we were really happy to work with her. She was responsive and knowledgeable about house features and neighborhoods, which helped a lot as we searched. It was my first home purchase and she was fantastic at answering questions and walking us through the process so that we felt confident about our decisions. She was a huge asset during negotiations with the seller and throughout closing. Highly recommend her for any real estate needs!

Bramlett Residential, and more importantly Joe Gage were amazing at helping my wife and I buy our very first home. Bramlett & Joe made the whole process stress free, and really helped expedite the process for us. We had no idea we would find exactly what we were looking for so quickly! Joe was very knowledgable on numerous things such as market strategy, what things to look for while touring homes, and he quickly understood exactly what type of home my wife and I were looking for. He was also in constant communication with us throughout the whole process which helped us feel very comfortable in a situation that could have been stressful. I will confidently recommend Bramlett & Joe Gage to anyone in the Austin area going forward!


Buyers First Time Home Buyer Joe Gage

We worked with Crystal Hirst and she did an amazing job. She went above and beyond to make sure that we found the right property for us. Our search initially was all over the place and we didn’t even know what kind of property we wanted. Nonetheless, Crystal was incredibly helpful and patient while working with us to find our home. Crystal would point out all the pros and cons for any place that we would consider and we felt we could trust her. As first-time homebuyers we felt this was important because we did not know what red flags to look for in a property. Additionally, she was communicative and extremely responsive throughout the entire process. We were very satisfied with Crystal and would recommend her to anyone with no reservations whatsoever.
