Sonia had helped us get into our previous Rental situation, and had a stellar review having worked with some close friends of ours. It was an easy decision at that point. Then, it was a breeze. We layed out the essential criteria we were looking for and Sonia found us a slew of candidate houses. She was able to adjust on the fly, with alternate properties at the ready when our Sq Ft. requirements increased, and as she became aware of just how important certain house characteristics were to us. Even once it seemed pretty clear which house we were planning to go for, she recommended that we see a few more, in order to either lock in our decision, or make us realize there was something else we wanted. Could not have asked for a better experience on showings. Then, once we engaged with the one we were interested in, Sonia brought ample knowledge to the bargaining table, and I feel like we saved a few thousand dollars that we wouldn't have without her. After getting locked in, Sonia walked us through the entire process leading up to, and through, closing. She really hit it out of the park if I'm being honest, and I fully intend to continue working with her whenever possible/needed."
Home buying can be stressful to say the least. Throughout the entire process Sonia was there to guide us. She's a warm, caring, and professional individual who made us feel like family. She was there for our benefit. No questions too small or hour too late, she was there when we needed her. Aside from the purchase there's the recommendations and referrals of nothing but the best professionals at what they do. Anybody reading this, do yourself a favor and let Sonia help put you in the home you've been looking for.
She had the answers I needed and a great idea for timeline on when to start looking for a place based on the move-in date we wanted. She didn't show us things that didn't fit our criteria and was a breeze to get a hold of when I wanted to look at a house! She really made the potentially stressful ordeal of finding a place a total breeze!
We couldn't have done it without her! Our experience with her was so great that we recommended her to our good friends, who have also since purchased a property with her. She continues to help us with our home months later with things like homestead exemptions, protesting assessed property values, and refinancing our mortgage. Look no further, you have found your realtor :)"
She is extremely personable, helpful without being overbearing, and refreshingly honest and straightforward - we really felt like she had our best interests at heart and wasn't just trying to push a property on us that didn't meet our needs. We were looking at rental properties, and I was super impressed by how organized and responsive she was in terms of finding listings, scheduling viewings, and following up with owners/property managers to get answers to our questions. Sharmin was a joy to work with - super competent and so likeable, I would recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell or rent a home in a heartbeat!
? If so, the person to call is Christina Reibman Haverty. I can't thank her enough for helping us purchase our home from 1300 miles away. She turned what could have been a much more stressful and scary situation into a pretty easy one. She went above and beyond by standing in for us at the inspection and FaceTiming with us when the inspector was finished, was there when work and repairs were being done, then FaceTimed with us again to make sure we were happy with the results. She also checked into the space in our absence when it was unoccupied for a few weeks. This women knows Austin like the back of her hand, was like a walking, talking, real estate Google. Have a question about plumbing or construction? She's on top of that too. She educated us every step of the way and steered us in the right direction 100% of the time. I recommend her with complete confidence!
She was readily available to show us neighborhoods and homes as well as taking our calls and answering questions. She helped us throughout the entire process and always had resources & statistics for us to review. My husband is a finance guy -- so he appreciated having numbers to analyze as well as home-price comparisons between neighborhoods. She was attentive to our preferences and made great efforts to satisfy each one. We were both new to Austin and to the process of buying a new home, after having rented for numerous years. Violet is very knowledgeable as to the process of buying a home and we didn't have any uncertainty about what to expect or what was next. Violet is also a great resource as to each neighborhood including details as to the schools, shopping & community. She is extremely thoughtful and caring! For instance once we closed & moved, she helped us find a table for our kitchen. We have recommended Violet to our family and friends. Now that we are settled into our new home & neighborhood, we sort of miss our weekend house-hunting adventures with Violet!
They went over and beyond our expectations at every step and turn of the entire process. If I had to pick something that really made me appreciate their efforts, it would be Tana going out of her way to ensure the paint used following some minor ceiling repair was an exact match and went as far as having it repainted a second time. I would absolutely recommend Mark and Tana. They are an awesome team that treated us like family and focused on top, prompt and quality customer service! Scott and Mary Ritch
She took us around and showed us a wealth of different properties that were well within our budget and ideal requirements. She set up multiple portals for various sections of Austin, so we could price compare based on neighborhood. She was excellent at offering us guidance as to that types of homes we would find in each area, pros and cons, etc. Overall, it was a very positive experience. Thanks Violet!
She is very detail oriented, honest, straight forward with a great sense of humor! Buying a property can sometimes be a very exhaustive process but Christina was always full of fresh energy and readily available. We are really pleased that she was a part of our journey into buying our first home.
I recommend Violet Leff , she is a first rate real estate agent. Violet worked with me to sell my home in South Austin. She had it sold the day it went active, but due to unforeseen circumstances we were not able to complete the sale and had to temporarily take the property off the market. During that time, Violet checked the property regularly, made sure the yard was taken care of and was in constant communication with me. Once we were able to put the property back on the market, Violet held a weekend of open houses and the property went under contract immediately as a result. I received a good offer very close to list price and a quick close of escrow. Call Violet, you will not find a more service oriented real estate agent.
She is thorough and professional, yet personable and understanding. We can always count on her to answer calls promptly and follow through with requests and questions. We recommend her to all our friends and family!"
Violet was easy going yet incredibly professional. It was apparent after one day of working with her that she was very experienced and knowledgeable. We are incredibly happy with the property we chose and the help she provided. Not only would we use Violet again in the future but would refer all our friends and family."
I found her to be friendly, knowledgeable and easy to talk with. When we began looking for a property to purchase I thought immediately of Violet. She made the entire process painless. She was available, returned phone calls and texts promptly and kept us informed at every turn. We would definitely use her again and can highly recommend her for any real estate needs.
