There are a lot of options for Austin realty companies, but reading through the positive reviews of Eric Bramlett Residential is what lead me to cold call their office. The same day, Kasey Gilliam called me and the rest is history. Being a first time homebuyer is filled with anxiety. You can do all the research beforehand, but there is nothing compared to working with Kasey and her extensive knowledge of the market and homebuying process. She listened to what was important to us. She walked us through every step of the way and never made us feel guilty of our endless questions. She pointed out what to look out for. She never pressured us into anything (and actually talked through why certain properties weren’t good buys). She has a contact for everything. She always made herself available to show properties either the same day or the next – which can make all the difference when properties sell the same weekend. She sent us comparative analysis of neighborhoods so we could make decisions based on hard facts. And the cherry on top was I genuinely feel she wanted us to find the perfect house. Kasey was so incredible I wish I had her for all aspects of my life. And when we eventually decide to sell the house, she’ll be the one we call. I could not recommend her highly enough. If you’re currently reading through reviews searching for a realtor, Kasey Gilliam is the one you’ve been looking for.
Katie Evans is amazing for all of your real estate needs! The level of professionalism and care was off the charts. I was treated like family rather than as another client. She took the time to answer all of my questions, provided me with all of the necessary statistics and video to assist with the decision making process, and then went and continues to go above and beyond the call of duty. There simply is no better choice to represent you than Katie when buying for yourself, investing, or just getting acquainted with the market. Thank you sincerely for the top notch service!
I found this realtor group though Yelp and after a quick survey through their site asking what areas I was looking in, Ashley Vavasour called me. She was super professional, realistic in telling me what my budget could allow, and showed up to our first property in a mask, which I appreciated (we both wore masks during every meet). Ashley asked me my thoughts about places we saw, and also gave me her honest opinion on places that weren’t up to par, whether there was no guest parking (we looked at condos first) or a maze of tight spaces. I valued her feedback and validation of what I was thinking, but couldn’t quite articulate, being a first time home buyer. After talking, I decided a house would be a better option for the same amount of money (a backyard for the dog, no neighbors sharing walls). I wanted certain things : an already established neighborhood with trees, nature nearby, and a place that didn’t need a lot of work. She adjusted the properties I was seeing in the email listings as we went along, and on our second meet, looking at houses, I found my home! Ashley made the process super smooth and easy, was always professional and to-the-point, and advocated for me along the way. I’ll be moving into my new home soon and am so excited about its backyard full of trees and the 2 blocks walking distance to a nearby park. Great experience with Ashley, highly recommend!

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.
During our house hunting journey, we were absolutely BLESSED to have Tara guiding us. From day one, Tara has been awesome. Tara has consistently been professional, prompt in her communication, attentive to our needs, and very caring. She also is extremely understanding of the stress of home buying and has been so understanding of mine and my husband’s quirks. Tara always did her best to make sure we felt supported and was always honest with us. We completely trust Tara because she consistently proved she knew what she was talking about. Furthermore, the fact that she is so familiar with remodeling processes and costs, helped us better assess the many homes we saw. As to your question about what Tara did especially well; there were so many things. She absolutely always made the time to show us a house we expressed interest in….she never said “oh no, I can’t show you that house”–she never let us down. She is just a very kind, compassionate, and generous person. She always made us feel that she had our back and our best interest at heart. This is such a vulnerable process and she always supported us. There is nothing she could have done better.
Overall, the sales transaction of our home was very good. The only stress I felt was from the title company which was absolutely not Tara’s fault in any way. The title company agent was really not great and that was just our luck as that company was selected by the seller. Tara really made the buying process great.
My family is very grateful to Tara. We are living in our dream home and we are so happy!
A friend recommended Bailey Moran to me, and now I’ve worked with her for more than 2 years on various real estate transactions. She has always been quick & responsive, and when time is of the essence in real estate – this is essential! Her knowledge of the market has helped guide me in decision making every step of the way. I’ve purchased a couple of places with her help, and the level of communication & guidance is always great! One purchase was completely done REMOTELY and she went above and beyond to thoroughly check out places for me & video chat/give me virtual tours. She was able to negotiate below asking price on the second house which is not easy to do in Austin! Everyone at Bramlett Real Estate has been professional, friendly, and an absolute pleasure to work with. Highly, highly recommend!!
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!
My husband and I contacted Eric Bramlett Residential Real Estate trough Yelp, Eric responded super quickly and assigned us to realtor Shaun Duffenbach. I must say, hands down, Shaun is THE BEST! We couldn’t have asked for a better person to guide us with our home buying process. Moving from CA to TX can be very challenging, but Shaun was very patient and was available for us since day one, making this process a lot easier. He is an expert in the industry and very proactive, he will get things done quickly for you, I promise! Thank you Shaun! We’ll definitely reach out again for our next home purchase. Until then 😊
We used Kasey Gilliam as our realtor, and I can’t say enough good things about her. This was our first experience buying a home, so we were nervous to say the least. But Kasey’s wisdom, experience, and kindness made the whole experience easy and, surprisingly, a lot of fun! She kept us informed every step of the way. She went to bat for us on homes with multiple offers. And we ultimately purchased a home that we are thrilled about it in the neighbor we were wanting. If you use Kasey as your realtor, you won’t regret it!

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!
Tara McGuire has been an amazing Realtor for me! I really can’t say enough good things. She worked with me to sell my house and buy another one. First of all – selling. I could tell from our initial meeting that she has all of her ducks in a row and thinks of everything. She has a ton of experience and she has a great team who help to support her success. She also is in the loop with contacts for other vendors (home improvement, financial related, etc.) that ended up being important with getting the house ready and actually crucial during the option period for the buyers (an impartial foundation assessment company). I was really impressed with the stager I had access to, and the professional photos of my house were fantastic (both no additional cost for me). Now, buying. I’ve had some twists and turns on my wish list and buying process but Tara has been patient with me and seems to have endless energy with marathon house tour days. I toured some open houses on my own as well, and one of the agents hosting an open house knows Tara and couldn’t say enough good things about her, which reassured me even more than I already knew I made a great choice. One thing that struck me is that she said Tara has a lot of great systems and processes in place and I totally see that. Now we are under contact for our new house, which we are really excited about, and will close this week! I loved that she is taking care of everything for me – she even scheduled the inspection and told me to show up at the end. One thing that I really noticed is that she knows what to say and when. For example, she recommended we go out of town the weekend we listed the house for sale. She gave me a couple interim updates and told me when I got my first offer (plus I had access to the system that records the visits) but basically didn’t worry me about anything until we got all the offers in (7!) and presented which one was best and why it was best. On the other hand, when I was buying, she kept me in the loop with every action – she submitted the offer, the other agent acknowledged, how any negotiations were going, etc. There’s no doubt Tara is a great choice!
We loved having Kasey Gilliam as our realtor! As first time homebuyers, we had a lot to learn about the process and Kacey was informative and helpful the whole way through. She was easy to communicate with and always available to answer questions or go see houses. She was patient as we looked at house after house until she helped us find our perfect home! I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a home in the Austin area!
