Our search for a realtor in the Austin area began and ended with Linda Baddour. She is the epitome of professionalism, helping us at every step of the process and she went above and beyond to make our homebuying experience a possibility in spite of the unbelievably competitive market. We were hoping to move within a specific timeframe and she worked extremely hard to facilitate several home viewings (virtual and in-person while we visited for a single weekend) ultimately enabling us to close on a brand new home resale within 45 days of beginning our search with an offer that was under asking + while coordinating 95% of the details out-of-state. I would recommend Linda to anyone in search of a fantastic, experienced and efficient realtor in the Austin area and I look forward to working with her again.
After a great first experience with Vicki Duran, we decided to reach out to her to help us find a home for our parents. And just like the first time it went great, Vicki continues to be extremely kind, patient and responsive, she helped us find a home to our needs and within our budget that our parents love. Thank you very much Vicki!
We moved the whole family to Austin for a career change and jumped right into a hectic seller’s market, looking to buy a home. A friend had recommended Bramlett Residential and introduced us to Tyson via email. Tyson got a list from us detailing the specific things we needed in our new home. He used this to generate possibilities in a list which he emailed to us frequently while we settled affairs out of state. After a few weeks, we had a great collection of homes that were the right size, within our budget, and in the area we wanted to live. We moved into a temporary rental and started viewing homes with Tyson. Over the course of several evenings, Tyson led us all over the north Austin area looking at different homes. He fine-tuned what he showed us next based on things we liked or did not. He even recognized a listing that was tantamount to a scam and steered us clear of it. Eventually, we found a home that checked all the boxes and then some. Tyson went to bat for us and even had to wrangle the listing agent a bit over some things she had missed. We were glad for his advocacy and despite an almost hostile market for buyers, purchased our new home within a month of moving to Austin. Tyson was a consummate professional. He was patient, and worked hard to find my family a home that suited all our needs. During our move I had a friend tell me he wanted to relocate his family out to the Austin area. I connected him to Bramlett without hesitation and they are closing on a home as I write this
Austin Pitts is my realtor for life! We were taking a walk one Friday evening, and saw a for sale sign in front of our favorite house in the neighborhood. I immediately texted Austin, who set a showing for 10:00am the next day. We had an offer in on Saturday afternoon, under contract by Monday, and he even referred us to a lender that closed us in 3 weeks! He was also able to create a relationship with the seller’s agent so we knew where we had to be in order to come in with the most attractive bid – all without feeling like we overpaid because we knew what the next highest offer was. I cannot recommend Austin enough, if you are looking for an agent that knows the Austin market, who better than someone that was named after the town!
Finding the right home for an out of state move with 2 kids through Covid within a small window was what we were looking at. We were not even sure if we could pull this off but decided to get the ball rolling. We found Kasey Gilliam and Eric Bramlett Residential Real Estate via a review based search (and we now know why she and her company feature at the top). Kasey patiently reviewed our requirements and helped narrow down the search areas to what we now know were perfect for us. Daily search results started coming in and we got to the “virtual tour+bidding” stage. Kasey and Mackenzie (Kasey’s assistant) patiently walked through properties for us to view remotely and would always add comments on specifics which made our filtering much easier. With a fair idea of what to expect, thanks to the virtual tours and a couple of bids we had placed remotely, we came down to Austin for 3 weeks to continue the home search. Kasey and Mackenzie had already lined up 3 tours on the first day and the properties they chose matched almost our entire checklist. While bidding for the home we liked, Kasey was actually at the airport and about to get on a plane. She handled the paperwork from the gate and made sure that a clear and complete bid was put in place. That was the winning bid. The home we ended up with was the very first home we toured after landing in Austin. The floorplan, the neighborhood, the area…..everything was just what we wanted. We are glad we found this team and can say for sure that you will not go wrong with Kasey and Mackenzie. Thank you guys!
My experience with Tyson was awesome! With the way the market has been, this was the second attempt to find a home in the Austin area. Tyson stepped in after the first failed experience and made it happen. Closed on my home in a month and now I can relax and enjoy. Huge thanks to Tyson and Bramlett Residential.
Phenomenal service!!! Tyson’s knowledge and experience was on point. He was honest and straight forward throughout the entire process and made himself available as much as possible. Tyson offered all of his feedback and knowledge to make the process as easy a possible. He even helped find a new lender when mine was not able to meet the scheduled deadlines! This first time home buyer is one happy camper!!! Will definitely be referring Tyson and Bramlett Residential to others.
Today’s real estate market has remarkably changed. You now have to compete against not only higher prices, limited inventory but also multiple bids. Craig McGuire was excellent in his approach to what is available, how to negotiate and offer the most attractive contract in a bidding war and also making sure that he is available to show when something does come on the market. I got out-bidded three times but in the end it was definitely worth it for finding the best home and more room for your buck.
I would definitely encourage anyone looking for a home, condo or lot to reach out to Craig for the best advice and strategy for buying that home.
If you are in the market for a trusted and experienced agent, I would recommend Philip Myers with Bramlett Realty. We just closed on our second property with him. Choosing a realtor to represent you is a daunting, and often frustrating endeavor. We worked with two or three agents before we were lucky enough to be put in touch with Philip. He is very professional, knowledgeable, and has excellent contacts in all the areas of real estate from contractors, to lenders, to inspectors, to appraisers. There are always a few bumps along the way when buying or selling a property and it’s always good to have an experienced professional in your corner. When we had to push back our closing date two times, Philip handled it immediately. When the seller wasn’t getting us the appropriate documents, he made sure he followed up until we had them. He even recommended an amazing lender – this was a life saver. The two previous lenders we had spoken with had said we could only get our property with 20% down, but Philip’s contact was able to get it to us for 5% down and lower interest rates than the other two. I don’t think we would have been able to close at all on our first property if we hadn’t worked with Philip and Charlie from Austin Capital Mortgage. Philip knows the ins and outs of how real estate transactions work. When something inevitably goes wrong, he knows the next best move. I’ve recommended him to several friends and unreservedly recommend him to anyone who is serious about buying a property.
