All I can say is Jeff was great. We were looking for a condo in the UT campus area.We had received several mailers from area realtors/brokers who target out of state students about the benefits and requirements for obtaining in state tuition. I set them aside and thought about all the advantages of, one, getting out of the UT dorms in COVID environment, and two, in state tuition. Our daughter absolutely loves Austin and knew that is where she wanted to attend. Her program is a 5 year program so we knew she’d be in for the long haul. I found Jeff, and your brokerage firm through a Google search and Jeff promptly returned my call. I had already identified a few properties that were of interest and Jeff was great at giving me feedback since I was out of state. He was readily available to show the properties to my daughter. Jeff knew my concerns with the dense population of west campus and the “party-Greek life”, security concerns, re-sale, and our desire to have a more “quite older neighborhood/community”. Since we were cash buyers and the property we purchased was fairly active with showings, he wrote the contract fast and negotiated it for us over the weekend, even on a UT game day! I understand his love and loyalty to UT eventhough we are Sooners. When it came to closing and inspection, Jeff made several recommendations of service providers and I couldn’t be happier with any of them.He was extremely patient with us since we were out of state buyers and I feel he genuinely looked out for our best interest. He was quick to respond and research concerns I had about a recent demolition next to the property and what could potentially be developed in the space. Although it is too early to tell, he took the effort to research the issue. Additionally, he was able to make contact for me with the HOA which was difficult for me to get a call back. I feel like I could always call on Jeff with any questions. I’m in the banking business and understand the importance of customer relationship and quick responses. I would highly recommend him and your company to any out of state buyers.
Will was timely in his responses, professional, and extremely helpful. It’s clear he has a lot of knowledge and I relied on his professional opinion throughout the process. Everyone on the team had exceptional communication with me and they were patient, kind, and thorough. I have already recommended you to a few people and will continue to do so. Thank you so much for everything!
I’ve heard from many people, buying your first house is a nightmare and stressful, anxiety inducing grueling process. Those people have clearly not had the pleasure of working with Craig McGuire with Bramlett Real Estate! My spouse and I were lucky enough to be put in touch with Craig from a referral from a friend, and from our first conversation, we knew he was looking out for our best interests and wanted to make as much of our dreams a reality within our budget. Craig was excited and upbeat and positive throughout the whole process. The Austin market is crazy right now and almost disheartening for newbie buyers, but Craig assured us all would work out fine and squashed any doubt or fear we felt creeping in. He answered every single question we had and gave us a timeline on how things would progress along the way. From the get go when we said what our plans and dreams were, he was onboard and ready to jump on and help us on our quest. WHO just hears some stranger’s dreams and plans and springs into action like that?? There are some good real estate agents out there. But in this market, especially if your are a newbie buyer, good isn’t good enough. Forget the rest, get with the best, call Craig, tell him your plans and dreams and let his best work for you! I did and I’m writing this post from my dream kitchen island in my new dream house!
I worked with Patrick Hallett to purchase a rental home, and the process was excellent, he was professional, courteous, punctual and knowledgeable, everything you need in an agent to help navigate the crazy Austin real estate market. I would definitely recommend him to anyone.

I had a great experience with Craig McGuire. He took the time to understand what I was looking for and helped me to find the perfect new home to buy. He was very responsive and guided me through the whole process without being pushy. I highly recommend Craig and would be glad to work with him again.
We chose Eric Bramlett Residential Real Estate for our first house based on their online reviews, and they absolutely did not disappoint. Within a couple of hours of sending our callback request via their website (on a Sunday), our agent Craig McGuire called us to answer our questions and determine our new home needs. He immediately sent us information on existing homes as well as builders for the area we were looking at, and made himself available for all of our first-time buyer inquiries. We chose to purchase a new construction home in Buda, and Craig was there every single step of the way. He was proactive in addressing our needs, and made sure we were comfortable with the build process. He made us very much feel that we were a priority, and are relieved to know that we now have an excellent realtor when we are ready to make our next move. Would absolutely recommend to anyone looking to buy (or sell) a home.
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!!
