We just finished the house buying process with Ashley Jamieson and could not be happier with her support, communication, and expertise. On a quick trip to Austin, Ashley showed us all around town and got a good feel for the type of home and neighborhood we were looking for and really gave us a wonderful introduction to all that Austin has to offer. Armed with that info, she consistently sent us listings of interest. We had heard nightmarish stories about the competitiveness of the Austin market. Ashley's knowledge and familiarity with the area and the market here put those fears to rest. When we found our house, Ashley was with us every step of the way and we are so thankful for her help. From our first contact with Ashley to closing on our home took almost 7 months, of which 3 months were long-distance. Importantly, we did all of our house hunting with our son along for the ride, who was only 6 months old when we started. Ashley was great at working with his schedule and including him in the process. It never felt like a hinderance to have him along. We highly recommend Ashley. We really could not have done this without her! - Sara C.
"...went above and beyond my expectations."
I was fortunate to have selected Cory as my Realtor to buy my first home. Cory went above and beyond my expectations. She worked very hard for me until I found just the right place that I truly love. She was always on top of things and kept me informed every step of the way. Above all, I appreciated Cory because she always showed integrity and patience, qualities I find most commendable in a Realtor.
"I would not work with anyone else..."
Mark and his team are beyond professional. He is a long term established agent in the Austin area. He will go above and beyond for his clients. I would not work with anyone else for my buying and selling needs!
"...Ashley is a rock star..."
My wife and I recently relocated to Austin. I received a referral to call Strub and Mark set us up with Ashley. I was super impressed with how Ashley took time to answer all of our questions (we had many as things are different in Austin compared to what we are used to). She went WAY above and beyond our expectations. For example, we weren't ready to start seriously looking until March for an April or May closing and Ashley started showing us around town the November prior. Our experience was great, Ashley is a rock star and her team is amazing. The. Best. USE THEM. - Ryan R.
"...takes the time and effort to go the extra mile..."
Mark assisted me with the sale and purchase of my home and his commitment to his client's satisfaction and success is unparalleled. He takes the time and effort to go the extra mile and ensure that your personal and financial objectives related to the purchase or sale of a property are met. Mark exceeded my expectations every step of the way.
"...put forth an amazing amount of effort."
I highly recommend Cory as a Realtor. I am a currently licensed Real Estate Agent in the state of Texas, but recently moved to Philadelphia to start a business. I decided, rather than try to sell my house from out of state, to save a few bucks on commission, that I would give the listing to a local Realtor. After speaking with her about it, I couldn't think of a better person than Cory.
After she viewed the property, she sent me a list of items I may want to address, in order to maximize my house's sale value and even helped coordinate with my contractors, all while keeping me constantly informed of the progress. She suggest a list price, that I was a little afraid was on the high side, compared to the comps in the area, but she was confident that my house was worth it, considering the size and improvements. We listed it on a Thursday and within 48 hours we had multiple offers and went into contract for $21,000 over asking price with very qualified buyers that had been pre-approved for financing and had a large amount of cash to put down as well. I was amazed.
I couldn't recommend Cory enough. She was critical in getting my house presentable, marketing, and negotiations. She was professional, attentive, always easy to get a hold of, and she put forth an amazing amount of effort. She certainly earned her commission on this one!
"He went above and beyond..."
Had a wonderful experience with Alex. He went above and beyond to make sure we got the house we wanted. He stayed on top of things the entire time and made the home buying experience wonderful. Definitely would recommend! - Sunflower D.
"Cory was up for the challenge..."
This review is for our realtor - Cory Laurel within the StrÜb Residential team.
Working with Strüb has been a great experience. All I did was enter the word "realtor" on the Yelp keyword search in Austin and the Strüb company name popped up. I typically go with the most positively reviewed team so I sent an email to Strüb and another Yelp recommended team on March 14.
Strüb responded immediately on March 15 recommending 2 of their great agents that might fit our personality / needs. We were buyers relocating from San Francisco, CA to Austin, TX. Out of the two profiles, we chose Cory Laurel.
Right from the get go, a curveball was already thrown into the mix; I only had a few hours each day between March 20-24 to view homes while I visited Austin for work. Cory was up for the challenge and very positive. We viewed 15-20 homes during my limited time period in Austin, that's a lot of homes to look at in a short timeline. The other little wrench thrown in the pile was that we needed to find a place before we moved on May 23rd. Cory got right on it and recommend the lender for us to work with. She led the entire process and managed our expectations.
The third wrench was that we had a vacation planned for 2 weeks out of the country immediately after my visit to Austin. This meant that all correspondence and negotiations needed to happen immediately. Cory managed it all with such grace that we didn't have too many back and forth exchanges with the seller. It was a very pleasant buying experience for us. The negotiations, inspections, and closing were handled remotely. Our concerns / questions were answered almost immediately during the process. Our lender representative was even present on a Google Hangout during our closing in California. Overall, this was an A+.
Since we were located remotely, she even offered her time to get the locks changed on our new home prior to our move-in date.
We would do this again in the future with Cory.
