This is my second transaction working with Tara McGuire of Bramlett Realty, and she has been a consistent pillar of guidance for us during a crazy market in the Austin area. Our first was moving from out of state pre-Covid and then once we settled in and we decided to make a second move, in an even more challenging market during the pandemic, Tara was there as our community expert with whatever we needed. It is often so much more than buying a house, (which she is an expert at) but is able to refer any number of resources to help get things fixed and/or serviced- even has the best local jaunts to recommend as newbies to area. Tara has become our go-to for a lot. She demonstrates the patience, diligence, thoroughness, and the leadership we appreciate in a real estate professional and would not use anyone else!
Linda Baddour of Bramlett Residential is the best realtor we have worked with! Linda is super helpful, knowledgeable, and willing to help in any way she can to get us to the closing point.
As investors, it was essential for us to have someone we could trust and help us navigate through the process. Because we do not live in the area, Linda did the walk-ins, took photos, videos, talked to the builder, and kept us posted up until the close of our home. Even after we closed, she helped us find a property management company and get some measurements we needed from the house.
Her service goes beyond buying and selling. Linda kept us informed about pricing, important news about the area, and statistics she shared monthly through email that helped us understand the market we were investing.
Thank you, Linda! I hope we can meet and do more business soon!
My husband and I have been really pleased with our realtor Katie Evans. Most recently we purchased a home with Katie in Hutto and she goes above and beyond the norm for a realtor: she goes the extra step by providing us with comparables (sale and rent prices for comparable lots in the areas we are interested in), land surveys, sends us lists of homes to help us narrow down our tours. She doesn’t pressure or rush us to make decisions but rather she’s there as a wealth of information to help us make a well informed decision. When it comes to the offer process, Katie is highly responsive, she gives us opportunities to increase our offers if needed and also when to step away based on our priorities and needs. We can’t recommend Katie enough, if you’re looking for a talented, well educated on the market, and no “sales-y” tactics, she’s truly incredible. And after the sale closes, she still helps with any/all details we have questions on, example: When should we start paying the HOA fee? or are the appliances gas or electric? She takes care of her clients 150% of the way not just until the money transfer happens– Integrity all the way! We highly recommend Katie and the Bramlett Residential Real Estate team. “Integrity” should really be in their slogan because it’s a class act.
I have known Tara McGuire for years and just recently had the opportunity to work with her on the listing/sale of an investment property. From early conversations discussing strategy and long term goals (well before she was formally my realtor), right down to closing, she and her team were all in. I was grateful for their expertise and calm approach in the current chaos of the Austin real estate market.

Ann Nye came highly recommended to us by a good friend who also used her to purchase a house in Austin and stuck with us for over a year during our transition from CA to TX. There are not enough good things to say about Ann without writing a novel. She is responsive, honest, proactive, has a great pulse on the market, has contacts high and low and is more of a friend helping you buy a house than one of “those” realtors. While looking at houses, she always encouraged us to share our thoughts on what we liked and didn’t like and made a lot of great outside of the box ideas to give us all the fair perspectives on the houses we looked at. When we finally chose the house we wanted to purchase, she patiently walked us extremely green home buyers through the entire process down to the documentation minutiae from start to finish at all times of day any day of the week. We cannot recommend her enough and we ended up recommending her to our parents and she also helped them find a house close to ours! She brought our whole family together in one fell swoop and we could not thank her enough for all she has done for us.
I had a great experience with Bramlett Residential. This is my second remote purchase with them. I worked with Vicki Duran again and she was exceptional as always. Incredibly on top of her email and crucial follows ups during the home buying process.
She goes above and beyond when it comes to time sensitive communications during the initial stages of closing. Also, as a remote buyer, she was helpful in touring places and showing them to me via video calling. Overall I highly recommend working with Vicki and Bramlett residential if you’re purchasing in Austin.
We cannot say enough good things about our experience with Bramlett Residential, and our realtor Ann Nye. Ann helped us purchase a house in the very competitive South Austin market remotely (from across the country). We could not have done it without Ann. Ann listened to what we were looking for and was willing to put in the time to help us find the “right home”. She provided us multiple videos and FaceTime walk-through of properties, and helped us navigate unique Austin issues like impervious cover restrictions. She provided invaluable suggestions, acted quickly, and always made us feel like finding our house was a priority. She worked tirelessly to find us the perfect home, and was instrumental in ensuring a smooth closing (as well as helping us inspect the property before closing, get cleaning people in the house…) Ann is the best realtor we have ever worked with, and we highly recommend her services if you are looking to buy in Austin.
When my husband and I were ready to sell our home in the Cat Mountain area of Austin, we were fortunate that Kasey Gilliam of Bramlett Residential came highly recommended to us. She not only handled the sale of our house, she oversaw all of the preparations before our house went on the market, even after we had left Austin. She is competent, confident, and friendly, and she helped us beyond the call of duty. Given the seller’s market in Austin when we sold, we ended up with several competing bids, and Kasey guided us through to process of accepting the best one, and securing a backup offer should it be needed. Without hesitation I can recommend her to anyone in need of a real estate agent.
Linda Baddour goes above and beyond in representing my wife and I during our home building process. She came to every walk through and inspection that I asked to her to go to and was even available while I myself was not able to attend.
What I loved most about Linda’s professionalism was the type of questions she would ask our builder in person and via email. Questions I didn’t even think to ask myself. It felt like I had an attorney on my side fighting for me while she was there haha.
Thank you so much Linda for the great assistance during the past 11 months of the home building process. Shyah and I love our new home!
I’ve just bought my second property with Bailey in 3 years and hope for more to come! She has great local knowledge, deep expertise and is very detailed and thorough. I’d highly recommend her!
This review is about Joe Gage, their real estate agent. I’m based in Sam Francisco and was looking for investment property in Austin. I tried out three different agents based on recommendations from different sources, including Yelp. Joe clearly stands out. He’s very patient and responsive. I’m not familiar with the area at all thus had a lot of questions. His email reply contains detailed information of the neighborhood, including shops nearby, schools and so on. He regularly screen houses and give recommendations once he sees a good fit for investment house offered at reasonable price. He’s very knowledgeable about the area. All his recommendations comes with details around why he thinks it’s a good investment and sales/rental data in the neighborhood to justify the price he thinks it’s worth as well as the expected rental income. I found him to be very methodical and organized. He’s not a typical sales person. Maybe this is because he used to be an accountant. Needless to say he earned our trust and we went with him to make the purchase. I was very impressed through the whole process. He’s very calm and never pushy. His recommendation on the bid price was right on and he was very good at following up with various parties to push things through. The process went through very smoothly. If anyone is looking for a good real estate agent in Austin, I’d recommend Joe whole-heartedly. His professionalism and calm personality make him a real pleasure to work with.
