As a realtor in this competitive Austin market, my intention is to ease a process that, even when it's fairly straightforward, can still be stressful.My goal is to get you what you want.To that end, the tools I use most areresearch, communication, anddrive.
Selling and buying homes, while emotional, is a business transaction - a large one. My top priority is for you to make the best business decision you can, whether it's in determining a listing price or negotiating an offer. I look at comparable properties - consider lots of variables and details - to give you a smart range of choices. I keep abreast of research tools and listen to my industry mentors. As a former high school English teacher, I have an eye for detail, combing through contracts and communications with my most critical gaze to be sure I don't get cocky and start assuming that each transaction is like the one before it. I do the research so that you start ahead of the pack.
Additionally, I want the other participants in my transactions to enjoy working with me and to find my communications clear, so that when I present your offer, they think, "I've worked with Kate Ward before - not only does she produce immaculate contracts, but she also has a genuine, pleasant demeanor and her emails make sense." The last thing I want getting in the way ofyourdream-home ismypersonality. A doctor promises to first, do no harm. I vow not to harm your opportunities by being an unpleasant or an unprofessional person.
The first two tools are really there to back up the third - drive. I don't make your goals my own just to pay the bills. I absolutely love being a champion for you. I'm meditating with your thoughts and dreams floating through my head. When a home comes on the market, I'm on the phone to get us in the doorfirst- why wait for that open house? When we're waiting to hear about an offer, I'm watching the phone more than is socially appropriate. When wedoget the contract that several other people were bidding for, I am definitely dancing enough to embarrass my grown children. I truly enjoy the entire real estate process and I would love to make it as enjoyable as possible for you.

Very Helpful - Relocation Buyer June 2016
Violet was very helpful and knowledgeable about each of the neighborhoods I looked into and was able to guide me relative to schools, shopping, commutes, and community. We looked at a lot of homes in a variety of areas in Austin. We made offers on a couple and almost closed on one until the seller backed out last minute. Violet guided me through that and worked with the listing agent to ensure I received my earnest and option money back from the seller.
Ultimately she showed me a house she knew I would like, even though I was not sure I wanted to see it. It turned out to be the house I bought! Ultimately she knew better than I did at that point exactly what I was looking for in a house.
I would highly recommend her services to those that are looking to sell and or buy a home."
