I have been involved in many residential real estate transactions and Tracey is by far the most experienced, knowledgeable, and personable realtors my wife and I have ever worked with. Tracey knows the local area, provides tips on how to present your home when selling, and is a very skilled negotiator. I have recommended Tracey to several other people and won’t go to anyone else now that we have found the best realtor in the area!
My personal opnion is that Tracey Guttess is intelligent, professional, motivated, punctional, an excellent problem solver, creative thinker and ethical. She is someone who can put out a fire and turn it into a Win Win situation for all individuals. Yes, I highly recommend her.
Tracey, is an excellent real estate professional. She communicates very well and has tremedous amount of knowledge for the central texas area she services. She listens to your needs and advices well as you search for a home. She is a great agent to work with whether you are purchasing or selling!
Tracey helped me find and buy my first home and I am very happy with the result! Tracey is incredibly knowledgeable–she was helpful during walk-throughs, pointing out things that I would have missed. She is incredibly responsive and was quick to get me into houses I was interested in looking at. She is very dedicated and always followed up for more information about a house after we had looked at it. The negotiation and closing process was incredibly easy thanks to Tracey. She is a good communicator and can explain in plain english all of the long, confusing, boring forms that you have to sign. The negotiation was very easy and we were able to get below what the house was appraised for. Throughout the entire process, Tracey always had a positive, helpful attitude and professional demeanor. I am very happy with the result and would recommend Tracey to anyone looking for help finding a home.
We felt very lucky to have found Tracey to help us relocate from Tyler to Austin. Tracey is extremely knowledgeable about the Austin area and was professional in all interactions. We really didn’t know which community was best for us and Tracey was always willing to go the extra mile and show us homes from Dripping Springs to Georgetown! Not many REALTORS would be willing to cover that much territory. Tracey was always patient and reassured us that the most important thing was to find a place we truly loved. Her patience paid off for we did find the home of our dreams! Tracey followed up on everything we asked and made sure we were informed about our new location. She again went the extra mile after closing to be sure we were comfortable in our home. We no longer feel she is just our REALTOR but rather our friend!
My experience with Tracey was great! I needed an agent that would put my needs ahead of her own, and that is what I got with Tracey. The process was long and arduous (twelve months), with a significant and unwelcome hiccup involving a septic system. Through it all, Tracey never lost the faith, and never pressured me to lower the price for a faster sale. She gave me good advice, but was never overbearing or patronizing, though I have very little experience with real estate and surely tried her patience at times. She always listened to my ideas and provided honest feedback in her pleasant but no-nonsense manner. I would highly recommend her.
I had another realtor, a friend, who over a year showed my home 4 or 5 times, two of which she sent another realtor to preside over. When her contract was up, I decided to go another direction. Tracey Guttes lives in my neighborhood and, in the first month, had approximately 10 showings, hosted a neighborhood party there (which generated substantial interest), and was able to bring to the decision-making process so much more information about sales in the area, enabling us to place a “sellable” figure on my home, not a “give-away” figure. I’m happy to say I closed on my house last week. Tracey is bright, resourceful, and incredibly responsive, a very nice person, and a wonderful realtor. I don’t think you can do better.
I don’t even know where to begin with this recommendation. Tracey is an absolute GEM of an agent. I found her through another listing she had in the Homestead area of Bee Cave. I was in the beginning stages of relocating from California to the Austin area and didn’t even know what to do, where to begin and who to work with. Tracey not only has the extensive knowledge of the Austin area, but she knows what it takes to relocate from our of state. This was invaluable to my family. She generously took a weekend of her time to accommodate multiple showings in the Bee Cave area. We didn’t find “the dream home” that visit but Tracey kept in touch with us the entire time of selling our home in California. And not in a “I want your business” type of way; she was genuinely a friend reaching out and keeping us in loop on the market in Bee Cave. When the stars finally aligned, our house sold in CA and the perfect home popped up on the market in Dripping Springs, she basically dropped everything to assist in a super quick inspection and close. Being in CA during this entire process, she totally stepped in to help with EVERYTHING on our behalf. I can’t say enough about her and I hope that you choose Tracey to help with your real estate needs. I am thrilled that being new to the area I already have a friend in Tracey!
Ah, where to begin other than this is your gal if you are looking for a dependable, on the ball, superb with communication and very knowledgeable agent. My family and I just relocated to the Austin from, you guessed it, California, and started this process back in late February. Tracey had her work cut out for her because we had a pretty specific checklist and neighborhoods that we were interested in… Let me back up, when I first started I knew nothing about the Austin area and from the very start she took her time to show me around, and shared her extensive knowledge about all the different pockets surrounding Austin. In spite of being in another state during this process, she made it as painless as it could have been, and even skyped listings she previewed for us. She even saved us from buying a money pit which turned up all sorts of problems during the inspection and as per her advice, we backed out of the deal. At the time we were devastated, but as she kept reminding us, everything happens out for a reason. We know this was absolutely the right decision and we are so thankful for her willingness to give us her honest opinion which didn’t make her job any easier. I should also mention that we knew nothing about propane and septic systems so she guided us through all of that fun stuff, too. Tracey Guttes is an A+++ agent.
Tracey is THE ONE you want to be your agent. She is patient, positive, honest and sharp. As first time home buyers she encouraged us to look at as many houses as we could to get a feel for areas and what we liked/disliked. We saw a lot, and I never felt pressure from her to hurry up. She genuinely cared that we took our time and really got out there to see the market. She is so poised and gracious, we trusted her insight on all the properties. She guided us through the process and paperwork taking all of the anxiety and stress out of it. If you are looking for an organized, responsive, smart agent- Tracey is it!
After we decided to move to Texas from California, we needed a realtor we could rely on to understand our family’s needs and help us navigate a new area from a distance. We first met Tracey when visiting Austin and requested to see a home she was listing. She was immediately responsive and scheduled a showing around our scheduled while we were in town. While the house was not for us, we were so impressed by Tracey’s responsiveness, knowledge, and understanding of our circumstances that we asked her if she could be our realtor for our purchase. It was truly the best decision we ever could have made in this process, which took several months and had countless roadblocks along the way (such as our California home taking longer to sell than expected, inspection issues on the first house we made an offer on, etc.) She navigated each and every bump with poise and was instrumental in helping us keep our nerves and emotions in check through what turned out to be a much more challenging process than we ever imagined. At every step of the way, Tracey gave us her honest opinion, and never once tried to push us in any direction or try to “sell” us on a house. She truly understood our needs and made sure they were all met. We ended up in our dream home that we plan to live in for decades raising our three children. Without a doubt, we could not have done this without her, and she has made us into a forever client (and referral source). Seriously, if you are buying or selling a home, and you’re reading this review, you can look no further. Tracey is the best, period.
We were completely pleased with the service that Tracey provided. Tracey did everything she could think of to successfully market our property, even staging it a couple of different ways to get the right traffic. She helped every step of the way with any question we threw at her (and there were plenty!). She even repaired a leaky outside faucet while we were gone that she noticed on a showing, above and beyond the call of duty.
We bought our house with Tracey and sold it with her a few years later. Both times we were impressed with her knowledge, her communication, and her kindness. She made a huge process feel as easy as possible! We met other agents along the way and none compared to her- Tracey is truly the best!
Tracey is incredible! She helped us acquire our property in 2017 and just recently assisted us in selling. We currently reside out of Texas and she made this process so smooth (and dare I say enjoyable), even out of state. She truly went above and beyond to get our property sold. If you need a realtor in the Austin area she will NOT disappoint! 🙂
I cannot recommend Tracey Guttes highly enough! She has a broad and deep understanding of the local real estate market. She used her relationship with other realtors and builders to share properties that were coming soon to market. She gave me honest and insightful critiques of each property we looked at – and we looked at a lot of houses! She led me through the process with kindness and patience, expertly answering every one of my questions. After over five months of searching she helped me find the perfect home for my family, and then negotiated a final sales price below asking price. I believe it would be impossible to find a better, more qualified agent!
April was great, she made herself on a Sunday for a viewing and anytime of the day when we had any questions. As first time homeowners, she really helped make the buying process easier than expected. We felt she really wanted to help us get the home we really wanted and we did! She made sure we did everything we needed to get done on our end.
We jumped into the home buying process faster than we expected when the interest rates started to climb and the housing market shifted. April quickly setup viewings and coordinated with us. In the negotiation for the new home, April contacted the seller’s agent and any inspector services needed along the way. She also coordinated with our lender. We closed just 4 weeks after we started looking, and with April the process was simple and efficient. We will absolutely go with April in the future, and we recommend her to anyone looking for an agent.
April was the best!!! When we first spoke I told her that I had a few houses I wanted to look at in the Austin area and she built out a schedule for the day for us to see them all. I then ended up falling in love with one of the homes which would end up being my first house! Being from NC the process to buy a home is very different and April walked me through the process in detail and was there to answer any questions that I had… which were a lot! I was very thankful to have April as my realtor and able to find me my first home which I’m in love with! If you’re looking and want to be taking care of you need to work with April!
I recently had the pleasure of working with Patrick Hallett as my real estate agent, and I couldn’t be happier with the experience. From start to finish, Patrick demonstrated a level of professionalism and expertise that truly sets him apart in the industry.
Patrick’s excellent communication skills stood out immediately. He was not only responsive to my questions but also proactive in keeping me informed every step of the way. Whether it was a quick question or a detailed update on the progress of our purchase, Patrick was always just a call or message away. This level of responsiveness made me feel like a valued client.
His knowledge of the local real estate market was impressive, and he was able to provide valuable insights and guidance throughout the process. I felt like I was in the hands of a true expert.
Patrick’s dedication to his clients doesn’t stop when the deal is done. He’s the kind of real estate agent who genuinely cares about the well-being and satisfaction of his clients. His follow-up after the sale was not only professional but also heartfelt, reinforcing my belief that I made the right choice in working with him.
In conclusion, I would 100% use Patrick Hallett again for any future real estate needs, and I cannot recommend him more. If you’re looking for a real estate agent who is highly knowledgeable, incredibly helpful, and a pleasure to work with, Patrick is the one to call. Thank you, Patrick, for making my real estate journey a smooth and enjoyable one!
This was our first time selling a home and Tyson was incredibly patient with every single question we had about how things were done. Trust me, we had A LOT of questions. He gave us sound input and information to make educated decisions, but at the end of the day it was just that: OUR DECISION. Tyson let us make the calls on pricing, price-cuts, staging, etc. I can’t speak highly enough about Tyson. As friendly as he is, he lived up to his promise of being “a bulldog in negotiations”! He did not accept anything less than what he would’ve accepted for his own home. I truly believe that. There were several times he told agents and unrepresented buyers alike “no” and that their offers were unrealistic or “no, my clients will not entertain that”. Loved it!
Kasey Gilliam did a fantastic job of showing us around Austin and helping us select the right apartment to call home. We were only in town for the weekend and she showed us multiple apartments on the same day to accommodate us, each with their own character. She was extremely responsive and answered all of the questions we asked. We would most definitely recommend working with her if you’re looking to call the Austin area home!
I had the good fortune of meeting Ruth twenty-one years ago when she was my agent and I bought my first house. Her knowledge of Austin communities and surrounding areas was so helpful. Since then, she has been our realtor as we have bought and sold 4 houses. She has also helped us lease one of these houses for over 15 years. She’s very personable, professional, smart and her previous 14 year background in corporate finance and MBA is an asset to her clients. She’s very hard working and meticulous both in buying and selling. Her connections with trustworthy contractors, landscapers, stagers, , handymen, you name it, proved to be a great resource. She provides outstanding service and expertise throughout the entire process. Now that we’ve moved out of state and are looking for a house, we miss her tremendously.
Kasey Gilliam was a delight to work with! Our friends recommended her years after their home purchase and we will be doing the same with any friends or family that move to the Austin area. Kasey was prompt, professional, and direct throughout the whole process. We were working on a tight timeframe to find and close on a house, and Kasey was extremely responsive and helped us rapidly run thru many showings. Kasey helped us greatly filter down our preferences on neighborhoods and home types which was crucial to us quickly finding a home we loved. She helped keep us on schedule for our rapid closing by quickly preparing the various offers/documents/responses to the sellers. Overall we had an amazing experience and would highly recommend Kasey!
We had a fantastic experience working with Kasey Gilliam to buy our home in Austin and regularly recommend her to our friends and coworkers. Kasey has a great eye for details/neighborhoods and a very polite but direct manner of speaking which proved invaluable during our search for houses. She was very direct and honest about the pros and cons of homes we went to see, often finding issues of concern that we may have personally missed without her (like a nearby train that infrequently ran thru the area but she caught on video because she arrived early, or pointing out the possibility of traffic noise when we visited a house in off-peak hours). She was efficient and direct in negotiating and coordinating our closing process, and always promptly responded to our calls and texts when we needed her. Highly recommend Kasey Gilliam for any home purchase or sale in the Austin area!
I am a first time home buyer in Austin. After reaching out to Bramlett about my situation, they took care of me immediately with collateral to educate myself not only on the market in Austin, but the milestones and steps it takes at a high level to purchase a home. Zero pressure, simply informative.
Danny De Luna was my realtor (ask for him if possible) and I started working with him in August with a proposed timeline of February/March to find something. I would send him Zillow links daily via email on houses of interest, and he gave me immediate feedback on what to look for and red/green flags. We eventually started looking at houses in October together, and he will tell it to you straight in these home walkthroughs. Trust is everything, and I felt like Danny treated each house from an unbiased perspective.
We closed on the home yesterday! There was never an ounce of pressure, doubt, or insecurity working with Bramlett. I will recommend anyone go to them for the Austin market. After this process, I will go no where else in future transactions. Thank you!
Had a great experience with Kasey and Kim at Bramlett Residential Real Estate. They listed, marketed, and sold my home in a difficult market, while maintaining consistent communication with me the whole time. They also solved the normal bumps in the road that come up in any big transaction like that.
Would highly recommend their team to anyone!
Our agent Trey was great from day one and checked all the boxes for what we were looking for. He provided us with all the insights we needed to understand the local housing market, he gave us a detailed tour of all the areas we were considering in Austin, and in the end he helped us get the best deal possible with the seller. Absolutely amazing!
Lynn Wise is your go to! –
My family and I recently moved across multiple states over to Austin. Being that it was going to be a big move, we wanted someone we could trust and look out for our best interest, especially since most of the viewings would be virtually. After interviewing multiple people, we decided to work with Lynn Wise because she made us feel comfortable and she had the experience we were looking for. She was super responsive and made the process of looking for a home as easy as possible. She also walked us through the whole process and was by our side when we were dealing with multiple different builders.
Lynn is very well connected with the community. She even has her own Facebook page which as a result helped us find a home for our growing family. We can honestly say that without Lynn, we would not have found the perfect house. She also helped us get situated with an Airbnb while our house was finished and made sure to provide us with multiple resources we could use. I highly recommend Lynn to anyone looking for quality services.
My husband and I were making the move from Ottawa, ON to Austin, TX and had a million questions about the city, state, and country. We worked with Elizabeth Michael, who was able to give us the lay of the land and answer all of our questions (and then some!). Elizabeth worked with us to help find us a rental home that met our specific needs (e.g. 3+ bedrooms, fenced yard, dog friendly, 20-minutes from downtown, and within our price range). We couldn’t be happier with where we ended up!
She’s fantastic. The Buyer was even impressed and wished she was his agent. She was always offering a helping hand and wasn’t afraid
to get her hands dirty to make sure the house was in tiptop shape before the buyers saw the property. She goes the extra mile, above
Sally Pierce was more than helpful in getting our dream property in Bertram, Texas. She was extremely honest, upfront, and
professional, and kept us informed throughout the entire process! She is extremely communicative and easy to reach to
answer any questions and address any concerns. Sally made the sometimes difficult process of buying a house, my husband
and I wanted desperately, a breeze! Getting our new home was no easy process… our current home was involved in a trust
and there were so many obstacles Sally had to guide us through so we were able to get it. Sally spent endless hours
communicating between the seller’s realtor and us. Since my husband and I are younger and do not have much experience in
buying and selling houses, Sally made sure to walk us through everything we were doing and explained everything we signed
which my husband and I really appreciated. Not only is Sally an amazing realtor, she is a great advocate for her clients. My
husband and I love our new home and highly recommend Sally Pierce to buy or sell your home.
Sally is amazing….a true miracle worker. She is an incredible negotiator. She sold our home for $40,000 over asking after 1
weekend of open houses. She then was able to help us buy a new build with only 1% down and with a VA loan in todays
competitive market. However, the best part about meeting Sally is that she is a very caring and honest person. We are lucky to
have not only a talented realtor but a great new friend too. She is the best.
My wife and I met Sally at an open house where she was the listing agent. We had recently moved to Austin and did not know much
about the real estate in Austin. We really enjoyed talking to her and set up a follow-up meeting in which she described the market,
explained the process, and discussed all the relevant and important details that we should take into account. We asked her to represent
us and we are really happy with that decision.
Throughout the process, Sally was always responsive and helped us with any questions. She was knowledgeable, professional, and had
a lot of useful information about the local market in Austin. But what really makes Sally stand out among other agents in my opinion is that
we could truly 100% trust her to be working in our best interests. Sally was always honest with us about the facts and I really appreciate
We were able to find a great house in less than 3 weeks working with Sally. We also recommended her to another couple. With Sally’s
help, they found their house in less than two weeks. We are really happy to have found her and will definitely work with her in the future.
We got a referral to Sally Pierce of Realty Austin through family. We wanted to move to the Austin area to be
closer to our daughter. We contacted Sally, set up a phone appointment, and had a great talk with her about
what type of home we wanted and where, and what the buying process in Texas would entail. A few weeks
later, we made an initial trip to look at houses in person. Sally was helpful and kind, and she provided
information on the communities we were interested in, in addition to showing us quite a few houses. At this
point, we had not yet put our California home on the market, but Sally was great about keeping in touch with
us and being patient, as we had to sell our California house before we could purchase in Texas. We finally
sold our house and flew out to Texas again, this time to buy. Sally was there (and still is!) with us every step of
the way, providing her great expertise and knowledge, along with kindness, laughter, and friendship. She is a
top-notch real estate agent who truly cares about her clients and what their needs are. We highly recommend
her and will definitely call her when the time comes to buy and/or sell again. In fact, we have introduced her to
our daughter to use as her pending real estate agent in the coming months.
