When we bought and sold with Brandi she helped make the transition from one home to the next very smooth. She was extremely understanding of the stresses associated with moving, and totally understood our needs, being that we had small children to consider. When it came to the sale of our home the marketing she did brought us 25 offers within days- WE WERE ECSTATIC and couldn't have been more pleased! She truly cares about her clients and goes out of her way to ensure they are taken care of during AND after the buying/selling process. A trustworthy realtor can be hard to find-they often disappear after they get paid-this is not the case with Brandi. She still checks in on us and its been over a year since our move! I would highly recommend her services. She has a great team that works together to make sure you are informed and comfortable every step of the way!
Brandi is the only agent I would trust and want in my corner when buying or selling a home in the Austin area. Her professionalism, knowledge, and negotiating skills are unmatched. She was our listing and buying a gent and she did a fantastic job. I will use her for life!
We bought our home 3 1/2 years ago with Brandi. We were first time homebuyers and Brandi made the process very easy for us. She is very knowledgeable and worked very hard to find the best fit for us. We are still in our home and very happy, we will definitely use Brandi for our next home purchase.
Brandi made the search process easier and held our hands through the home buying process. My husband and I were renters for years. At the end of our last rental, we were skeptical that a new home would be for us. Brandi helped us look at our financial situation, reviewed what we wanted in a home and the area that we would want that home in and around Austin. She knows the area better than anyone I talked to and she understands real estate and the mortgage/financial process so well that my husband, who is a CPA, was even impressed. I would recommend Brandi to anyone Nothing better than having a great resource who really cares about you and your family. Brandi is simply that and I feel fortunate to have her on my side.
Brandi is absolutely amazing. She was available anytime we needed her and got back quickly when we left messages. She found new homes on the market as soon as they became available and made herself available to get us in quickly. Because she understood what we were looking for and we would try to convince ourselves something would work that wasn't in our original specifications, she would remind us of what we had originally told her and help us make the decision to walk away. She has contacts for absolutely everything so regardless of what repair, paint, flooring, or landscaping we needed done to sell our home she was able to connect us with an expert who worked for a fair price. She knows the area better than anyone I talked to and she understands real estate and the mortgage/financial process so well that my husband, who is a CPA, was even impressed. I would recommend Brandi to anyone Nothing better than having a great resource who really cares about you and your family. Brandi is simply that and I feel fortunate to have her on my side.
