Mark is an amazing asset for selling your home and a great advocate when purchasing. He has great advice and insight and we couldn't have done it without him. He helped to get our house ready to sell and hired a photographer and designer that I am certain made all the difference. He also did a great job pricing the house, it sold quickly but without leaving any money on the table. He then was a huge help purchasing our new house and has continued to be a resource throughout the building process. It is a great feeling to know we have someone so proactive and knowledgeable in our corner.
"...I met Bee. Game changer."
I'm a first time home buyer and new to Austin. I had one month to purchase a home and relocate! I worked with a big real estate agency and lost 3 bids! Up at 12am, frantically looking online, I met Bee. Game changer. He emailed me immediately and asked if it was ok to call. We talked that nite for 45min so he could understand my needs. I woke up the next morning to endless listings and him asking which ones and when I wanted to look. I cried! He was so lovely when we met; he's fun to talk to, asked all the right questions to the buyer to protect my interest, and always made me think about aspects of the property. We found my home in days. He stood by my side through the entire process. Since I did not know the area Bee helped me with my financial team, insurance, and inspector. He also helped me research where in Austin I wanted to live and what that would look like. It was less than one month from meeting Bee to being handed the keys of my new home. Not only is he a God send, with the most incredible work ethic I've ever seen, but he is a friend and My realtor for life. He still checks up on me, sends holiday cards and gifts. ....this all coming from a New Yorker with 2 best friends that are realtors...Bee Nguyen is the best! -Pepper P.
"...'round the clock support."
Working with Cory was excellent! As a first time homebuyer, Cory not only gave me the guidance and confidence I needed to make an educated decision, but also round the clock support. She was patient and willing to look at every option with me, attentive to the specifications I had made for my perspective home, and very assertive in trying to go after the best deal. When the market got competitive and I found the place I most desired she helped execute the buying process with speed and ease. Most of all I loved her firsthand knowledge of home owning experience and her ability and willingness to prioritize my needs. I can’t wait to work with Cory again!
"...could not be happier with her support..."
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.
"...continued to show us other homes on the market, even though we were under contract...."
Mark helped us purchase our first home earlier this year. He met with us immediately after I reached out so we could talk neighborhoods. He's super knowledgeable about neighborhoods in central Austin- I.e. style, pricing trends, walkability, overall vibe. You can tell he's passionate about his job.
It didn't take long to find a house we loved, but sadly there were multiple offers on the table. Mark helped us take all the necessary steps to get an offer in quickly and feel good about it. And we got the house! Mark then helped us coordinate various inspectors (it is an older home, so we were very thorough about the inspections) and negotiated with the seller to meet ALL of our requests. He continued to show us other homes on the market, even though we were under contract, so we could feel confident about our choice. How's that for due diligence!
Overall I appreciated how responsive Mark was. We bombarded him with texts and emails on a daily basis and always received a prompt response. Thank you for making the process so easy despite all the horror stories we've heard about buying a home in Austin :) - Ashely D.
"...it's like talking to James Bond every phone call..."
I recently worked with Alex on the purchase of our home. Alex was great from the get go. I was relocating from California to Texas and Alex was super responsive, even with the time difference and weekends.
Alex really made the process super easy and stress free. He even went to showings with friends in Texas when my wife and I could not fly out there and did a video tour with us.
He knows the Round Rock, Pflugerville and surrounding areas very well and made great recommendations on top neighborhoods with great schools, which was very important for my wife and I.
Alex is British so it's like talking to James Bond every phone call and you got to admit that is pretty damn cool. I cannot recommend enough that you should use Alex as your Real Estate Agent!!!
"Mark works with all of our friends and family."
Mark is great! We were first time homebuyers, but he made the process fun. The Austin market was crazy, but Mark partnered with us to find the right area. He was patient, never pressured us, and in the end, Mark's network and knowledge of Austin landed us in our perfect home.
We're almost a year in and we still keep in touch. Mark's customer service doesn't end after closing. He's our go-to for any and all recommendations.
Mark works with all of our friends and family. He sold my mom's house in one day!
In short, Mark is the best.
"...thoroughly familiar with every area of the city..."
As a long-time resident of Kansas, I am considering the purchase of a home in Austin. During a recent trip there, I had the good fortune to meet with a very dynamic and knowledgeable Realtor, Cory Laurel. I would urge anyone interested in purchasing real estate in Austin to consider contacting Cory. She is thoroughly familiar with every area of the city and was therefore able to take me to available properties that matched exactly what I told her. She even suggested the best times of day to travel to different locations based on how heavy the traffic was, thus using my time and her own to best advantage.
Particularly important to me was the fact that Cory stayed focused on the business at hand--finding what I wanted, setting up showings quickly, and either answering my questions immediately or doing the requisite research in order to produce factual answers within hours. And, that she has a personality that indicates her love of the work she is doing. This is first rate, first class service that gets the job done. Not incidentally, she is able to accomplish all of this in a way that leaves you convinced that she is as interested in finding what you want as you are yourself! This is not an experience you'll get with too many other professionals you encounter in the world today. I look forward to working with Cory many more times in the future!
