Kat Applebaum recommends Ann Banos

We love working with Ann! My husband worked with her when he bought a townhome several years ago and had a great experience at that time already. Ann most recently helped us close on a new family home. She was such a key partner with us in our house-hunting journey. She was supportive, responsive, patient, and educated us along the way. By the end, it almost felt like having a close friend or family member in the process with us. We really appreciated that she wouldn't just tell us what we wanted to hear, but gave us very helpful advice along the way. She never projected her own personal home style preferences either, but allowed us to develop our own opinions of what we liked best. She's incredibly knowledgeable due to her wealth of experience in the real estate industry. You're working with The Best, when you're working with Ann! View More Info at Reach150.com

Josh recommends Ann Banos

Ann is FANTASTIC! This was my 2nd time Ann has helped me buy a home and the experience was A++++ just like the 1st time. Ann truly cares about her clients and has our best interests in mind. Unlike most realtors who look for the quickest sale, Ann is focused on finding you the right home, even if that means pointing out things you might not have thought of and had thought you found the perfect home. Ann has been in this business for a long time and knows Austin and our real estate history better than most -- she truly is an expert at Austin real estate! Ann is someone I greatly trust and would use her services again and again! Don't hesitate to give Ann a call when you need a professional and friendly real estate agent!

New to Austin

Ann is an incredibly experienced, knowledgeable, and effective Realtor. Balancing our tight schedule with a limited housing inventory (where homes are selling within days) is no easy feat, but her guidance and expertise got us an amazing home. We couldn't be happier with our experience with Ann and highly recommend her to anyone needing a true real estate concierge experience. View More Info at Reach150.com

Michelle was just what we needed. She was able to tackle the challenge to find us the perfect home during a pandemic and with us being out of state. She was available at our requests and made sure to take care of every detail from : negotiating, live videos of homes , setting us up with a notary while on the road, inspections, referrals , and we arrived to such a sweet surprise in our home . We highly recommend her and you will feel like you’re in good hands ! View More Info at Reach150.com

Erin DeWitt recommends Ann Banos

Ann is absolutely fantastic! We had a really specific set of criteria that made it very , very difficult for us to find a home, and for months Ann just kept digging, looking around and asking questions until we finally found the perfect home! Ann also is so attuned to her clients that we were comfortable having Ann go ahead and look at homes to tell us whether she thought we should make a several hours trek to see a home or not - after just a few meetings she not only knew our criteria, but she also got what our aesthetic was enough that we trusted her opinion implicitly. Further, she is a delight to spend time with. Some days we would see house after house, and Ann made what could have seemed like an arduous task into one that was fun. I absolutely recommend Ann, and I know we will be working with her again in the future! View More Info at Reach150.com

Deborah Solis recommends Sharon Fagan

Calibration Technician

We first met Sharon when trying to purchase a home for my son who attended college in San Marcos. We found the competition staggering. We needed someone that was familiar with the area and who could act quickly. In no time we were able to close on a condo. We found her to be very professional and extremely friendly and a joy to work with. Fast forward four years later, we were ready to sell that condo. Did not hesitate to contact Sharon. Within days we had multiple offers. With this being at the start of the pandemic we feared there would be delays, but Sharon was able to keep things on track and we closed in a timely manner with no setbacks. We highly recommend her for your real estate needs. View More Info at Reach150.com

Jarrod C. & Tiffany J. recommends Sharon Fagan

My wife and I were first-time homebuyers, so we had no idea what to expect when we started our search. We very quickly learned that the real estate market in and around Austin, Texas moves so fast, that it's easy to get discouraged or frustrated (especially working with a tight budget).
Thank goodness that we had Sharon Fagan on our side! Her warm personality and smiling face made it a pleasure to buy our first home. Though there were ups and downs through the process, none of the "downs" involved a lack of professionalism or care from Sharon. Each and every issue was met with a smile and a solution!
Her enthusiasm is infectious and her professionalism gave us confidence in putting everything in her hands. From the search, to the first (but not last) offer that we made, all the way through to closing, Sharon was absolutely great!

If you're buying or selling a home, I can not recommend Sharon Fagan highly enough. View More Info at Reach150.com

Will Cude recommends Michelle Hagens

Global Account Manager

Michelle is an outstanding Real Estate Professional, she's responsive to any requests you may have and makes sure that you're able to achieve the outcome you're looking for.

Michelle was with us every step of the way, from selling our house to closing on our new home. She took the time to attend our various build meetings with the field manager and helped us identify areas of our new home that needed touch up prior to closing. We felt supported throughout our home selling and home buying journey.

My wife and I were both impressed by her data driven approach to pricing, she took it a step further than just providing comps by customizing her suggestions to fit our home size, lot size, and add-ons. Michelle also came by to help clean and make sure that our home was 100% ready to sell.

I have zero hesitation recommending Michelle to anyone that's in the market to buy or sell residential property. She prioritizes her clients to make their needs are met from start to finish.

Toby and Kimberly Brodie recommends Sharon Fagan

Homebuyers

Ms. Sharon became our realtor in 2015 after we moved to Austin, TX from North Carolina. She was warm, personable, and caring from the first time we met! She took the time to learn about our family while teaching us about the market and helping us understand the process to home ownership. Even after we decided to hold off on the buying process for a couple of years, we still maintained contact and she worked with us to prepare and plan along the way. When we re-entered the buying process in 2019, she was right there with us providing the highest level of insight, care, and professionalism. We closed on our home in Sep 2019 and we know her experience helped make the process seamless! We highly recommend Ms. Sharon and we are grateful for the time she invested into our home buying process! View More Info at Reach150.com

Business owner

Patty has a lot of experience as a realtor. She helped me to sell my house and buy a smaller one. Before I put my house up for sale she gave me suggestions for a quicker sale.The second day she held and open house with good attendance. And since I was not living in the house she kept watch to be sure it was neat and tidy. After about 19 days there was a contract and an inspection.She helped me get contractors and see that we were "fixing" what the new buyers wanted and kept the process moving.The closing took place as scheduled and both the buyer and seller were pleased.The house I bought was from Open Door.They were not as easy to deal with, but Patty was persistant; 69 Emails weRE exchanged one day.Patty was always awaRE of my time and looked for what I wanted.I think I have a house I will be happy at and gained a better friendship with Patty.

Drew Reedman recommends Sharon Fagan

Executive Director, Biometrics

Where do I start?
About 8 years ago now we connected with Sharon and met for the first time over at a beautiful house in Ruby Ranch, Buda where she showed us around.

It was love at first sight, both with Sharon and the house. Unfortunately our budget couldn’t stretch to buying that house at the time so we just went with Sharon as our amazing realtor up through until just a few weeks ago.

During that time she has stuck with us in our almost endless pursuit of a new property along with selling our old house.

She was always so light hearted and fun to work with while always being professional and patient and looking after us with all the complicated realty “stuff”.

We must have had her show us 20+ houses and countless pieces of land in that timeframe but everything just didn’t quite work out until we found and successfully purchased our very own beautiful lot to build the exact house we wanted.

It took 12 months, again with Sharon’s help and guidance, to find the perfect home builder based on a custom model home we fell in love with and a budget that finally worked for us.

Turned out the builder sucked on a lot of levels but I kept being told by anyone having gone through it that they all do 😏I still argue ours was way below average. But I digress as their performance shouldn’t and doesn’t reflect on Sharons’ services.

Pleased to report after 13 months of building hell we finally got the home of our dreams and despite a few poor finish items, the quality and finished project came out exactly had we had hoped.

Sharon was then able to return and get to work on with the selling of our old home. Didn’t really get the buzz and level of showings we all expected and the buyer ended up being a complete jackass, making the whole experience a nightmare, with several delays to the closing.

Sharon helped us through our options and got us over the line during a pretty emotional time (I.e. moving and getting settled into one home while selling another.

I am not sure what the usually time commitment with one client is on two transactions but I’m pretty sure this was above average. You don’t work together for that long without building up a strong relationship and Sharon is now a good friend to us.

If you’re looking for a genuinely kind and caring person to work with, lookout for you and know her stuff, you can’t go wrong with Sharon.

Cheers

The entire Reedman clan.

Guillaume Uys recommends Ann Banos

After helping us to stage, price and show our home, Ann helped us to understand and navigate the offer consideration process and get our home under contract after only a single weekend of showings.
While at first we decided to rent, we realized halfway through the process that we wanted to buy a new home instead. Ann took our decision in stride and exhibited her calm, friendly and professional demeanour throughout even though we were very anxious at times.
In the end, we found a wonderful home that met all our criteria and more, in a beautiful area and closed the deal on time and within budget!
Ann is a top caliber individual, both personally and professionally, and we are very grateful that she was the one who shepherded us through this daunting process that concluded in a happy ending. View More Info at Reach150.com

Nikki Estabrook recommends Patty Overfelt

Community Relations Director

Patty was amazing! This was our 3rd house that we've purchased and she by far exceeded our other agents. Not only did she help us find what we were looking for in our price range, but she went above and beyond and helped us with many other things that we had no clue about such as LCRA restrictions and requirements. Patty has a way in working with the sellers too, so in addition to getting them to pay the closing costs, she worked with them diligently to get our home in our budget frame and have them pick up the cost of things that we wanted to see done. Patty is very knowledgeable on all aspects of purchasing a home and I highly recommend her. I know now that it is extremely important to have an agent that is very seasoned and tenured in their field. Thank you so much for all you do Patty! View More Info at Reach150.com

Arnold Winer recommends Ann Banos

Austin home owner

I first met Ann Banos in 2005 when I and three other partners (who were planning a rental investment in Austin) called upon Ann to assist us. Her friendliness, graciousness, and easy manner immediately appealed to each of us.

As she drove us through areas of Austin, she suggested properties in communities that had potential as foreseeable home rentals and that fit the limits of our price range. Since we lived out-of-state, she knew we had a small window of time to view properties; and thus, made every effort to end our searching in a timely manner and to quickly settle any necessary paperwork after we had made a decision to purchase.

During our time with her, it was obvious she had a vast knowledgeable concerning all areas of Austin-- especially those that had excellent school systems (a demand we requested of her), and those whose neighborhoods would attract serious buyers. We finally settled on a home in Leander; and with her expertise and invaluable experience, we were able to procure a home that both she and each of us fit the criteria that we had discussed.

After ten years of owning the home in Leander, we decided to sell. We again called upon Ann to assist us, and we found that she was as accommodating and helpful as she had been years before. When we requested that she handle the sell of the home, she set about mailing any (and all) necessary paperwork (disclosures, documents, etc.); evaluated any necessary repairs or improvements needed for the home; and hired whatever personnel would be needed to do those improvements. She was always available to answer questions—day or night--and give advice or provide clarification . She often kept long vigils at the Leander home as she patiently waited for deliveries, potential buyers, or workmen.

Indeed, she proved invaluable to not only purchasing this rental home, but a valuable asset to the often tedious tasks of selling. We will always be grateful to her ethical standards, expertise, and dedication to her work. View More Info at Reach150.com

Patty was extremely helpful through the entire process of finding and purchasing my home!

She spent time visiting and ranking the properties I was interested in, so that we could prioritize our walkthroughs and find the best fit faster.

Patty had several great recommendations for loan officers and third-party inspectors, which made it easy for me to focus on the next steps I needed to take while navigating the home purchasing process! View More Info at Reach150.com
