Eric worked with my girlfriend and I to purchase our first home in Austin, TX in March 2014. We found Eric based on his outstanding online reviews and after being less than satisfied with our first realtor. After speaking with Eric via phone and seeing the quality and detail of follow-up he provided, we knew he was the Realtor for us. We were first time homebuyers, trying to find the perfect home in a terrible buyer’s market (very high demand and very low inventory). From day 1, Eric listened to what we wanted, explained to us what we could reasonably expect and why, was very patient as we narrowed down what we wanted and went out of his way to help us find the perfect home.

Eric or his assistant Bailey were always available to show us homes within 1 day of us requesting to see a home (often same-day!) which was necessary due to the current Austin market where most of the homes we were interested in were being listed and sold within 1-3 days. Because this was our first home and represented such a huge purchase for us, we were very picky and Eric and Bailey showed us a lot of homes before we found the perfect one. Eric helped us successfully navigate through (and avoid) a number of over-priced homes and other bad situations that we would have likely fallen victim to without Eric’s guidance. Eric was all that we could have asked for in a Realtor and a whole lot more. He was always eager and able to educate us on topics from expected home appraisal values to financing options/lenders to quality contractors and advice on structuring our offers to be competitive in multiple-offer situations and through the entire process, never once made us feel rushed or pressured us to make a decision. He constantly reminded us that despite all of the metrics, we ultimately had to buy a home that ‘felt right’ to us.

We will definitely be using Eric and Bramlett Realty to prepare and sell our town-home and while we have already successfully referred some of our friends to Eric, we will certainly refer additional friends to Eric over the coming months and years. Thank you Eric and Bailey!!!
