I have known Wendy since she began working in the real estate world. Because she takes such an interest in the people she works with, twice she has found me the house of my dreams before it even went on the market, which gave me an enormous advantage in being able to buy the house. And even after the sale, she is there to shepherd you through the whole process (not to mention actually helping me move some stuff). Wendy can take care of the whole process from stem to stern, arranging for financing, getting all the documents together, and arranging to have people to help spruce up the place if needed before you move in. If you are looking for perfection, you shouldn’t look any further than Wendy. I wouldn’t use anybody else.
Just wanted to send you a note thanking you for all your help in getting our home sold. Found the whole process smooth and painless - will definitely recommend you to anyone I know looking to sell a home in Austin.
I've known Emily for years and I have to say that she is one of the most knowledgeable Realtors in Austin. I often get the chance to network with Emily and she is a wealth of knowledge about the Austin market and is a superb networker. I'd recommend her to anyone who needed a great real estate agent.
Emily is the consummate professional. She’s a great negotiator, very fair and honest and one of the most personable agents I have had the pleasure of working with. If you are looking to buy or sell, Emily is the agent with the level of expertise you are looking for.
Emily was simply a pleasure to work with. She worked with me to figure out my needs, she supplied me with on target information and never once wasted my time. She knows her stuff. She was able to make things happen when they needed to, and she knows how finesse a situation when it's called for. I would call her for every transaction. Thanks for making it happen. I love my house.
I listed my Austin, TX condo with Emily and she did an excellent job of working with the tenants and negotiating the sale. As an out-of state owner, I greatly appreciated her expertise in helping me select the right offer and her communication throughout the listing and sale process. I recommend her highly! Thank you Emily!
Emily is smart, professional, energetic, and a top notch project manager. Her marketing expertise guided us through the sale of our home and she was instrumental in helping us make the right choice of a new home. I recommend her completely! Emily is the best!
If you want a modern, active, central lifestyle, Urbanspace are the experts hands down. Many of my friends are not just happy customers, but customers with great investments on their hands. Austin’s urban core will soon be one of the most vibrant in the nation. How exciting!
Not only is Shelli extremely knowledgeable about Austin real estate, but she is so friendly and fun to work with! When our friend spotted a house being prepared for listing, Shelli worked her magic to get us in before anyone else, and helped us every step of they way from inspection to closing. The market was on fire, so things moved really fast, but Shelli was completely on top of everything. I would absolutely recommend Shelli to anyone looking to buy or sell a home in Austin!
With over thirty years experience working with realtors both on my behalf as well as representing various clients; Shelli Pauly is one of the best realtors I have ever worked with. Shelli is talented, knowledgeable, and carries herself in a very professional manner. I have found her to be diligent, resourceful, and an amazing person to work with. She is very caring, takes the time to fully understand her client’s needs, and is passionate about her craft. Shelli Pauly is truly outstanding and I highly recommend her for all of your real estate needs.
Looking for condos for our two boys was a very pleasurable experience with Shelli. We told her our requirements and she showed us the right places, sometimes over and over again, and was patient with us, gave us good advice, responded quickly to our questions, and was with us all the way through the process.
Shelli and I have worked together on transactions and she's a good as it gets! Thanks Shelli!
"My husband and I were locating to Austin from Michigan. We had asked around regarding a realtor who was knowledgeable about the downtown area. The name Grant Eriksen was mentioned a few times. We flew in for a long weekend and Grant had everything lined up. The smooth and seamless negotiation and purchase of our condo was the result of his professionalism, knowledge of properties, and listening to us as clients. We loved the fact he communicated with us throughout the process. He not only knows real estate, but knows Austin. His personality was relaxed and easygoing, something we appreciated. Grant was outstanding to work with."
"Grant is extremely knowledgeable about the downtown Austin condo market. He was easy to work with and didn't rush us through the process. After closing, he has been helpful with some follow up items, and seems to really care that we're happy in our new home."
"Grant represented us on the sale of our place at the W, and provided a level of personal service not often seen these days. He really cared about getting us a deal we felt good about. Would we let him represent us again? Absolutely."
My husband and I had done several renovations and remodeling to our home and finally decided there was nothing else we could do to change the layout. As much as we loved our neighbors and central Austin neighborhood, we decided to look for a new home. We turned to Austin native, Wendy Griessen to represent us as buyers and sellers. Wendy has such extensive knowledge of Austin and the market that it made our experience seamless. We knew we wanted to stay central but were being very picky about the location and homes potential while there was not a lot of inventory on the market. She took the time to understand exactly what we were looking for (I think she knew what we were looking for before we did) and was incredibly patient with us as we looked at several homes. She would always voice her opinions and concerns about properties that may or may not have been right for us. She saw things that we overlooked or hadn’t thought about. When we finally found the perfect older home, she worked with us to negotiate the best deal and patiently dealt with the inspectors and sellers representative to finalize the purchase. She even supplied us with recommendations for inspectors, plumbers, electricians etc. Once we found our home, she began the process of marketing our current home. She was extremely helpful in helping us prepare the house for the market. Wendy had great, realistic advice on pricing and ideas to make the home more presentable. She designed an amazing brochure and set up a realtor tour for local agents and scheduled an Open House right away. We were concerned the house may not sell quickly because of the current housing market, but much to our delight it sold within a week. We would (and have) highly recommend Wendy as a buyer and/or seller representative. She is a true professional.
I've had the pleasure of working with Emily and have always been met with the same vibrant attitude and expert knowledge. She is extremely personable and knows Austin Real Estate inside and out. She is fabulous to work with and to be around. If you're not using Emily to buy or sell then you're doing yourself a great disservice.
I referred Emily to a friend who was dissatisfied with her previous listing agent. I was confident that Emily would provide the right amount of energy, aggressive marketing, and real estate experience into the relationship and I was more than right. Not only did my friend hire her after interviewing several agents, Emily was able to get the property sold almost as soon as it was listed.
Wendy is the perfect combination of perceptive and knowledgeable...she takes such good care of her clients, and she knows the market better than anyone. Over a period of a few years, she helped us buy and sell three homes, during a time of uncertain transition for us. Her delightful, kind, caring and fun presence lightened our load during each transition. She is the whole package -- savvy, sensitive to your personal needs, and she expertly navigates the business side. As we spent so much fun time with her, we saw clearly that she is incredibly well-liked and respected in the Austin real estate community, and as she navigates the process on your behalf, you will know that you are in good hands. In our uncertainty, she stayed beside us as we traveled both country roads and narrow urban streets...so patient with our indecision, and by our side as we gathered information. It was an absolute blast, and we love, love the home that she so deftly guided us towards. Even though we are firmly planted in our home, we are sad that we won't be spending weekends driving the tri-county area with Wendy -- laughing, learning, and enjoying the process...a process that can rub you raw...but not when you're with Wendy!
Having bought and/or sold four houses in various parts of Austin with Wendy’s help, I can say with confidence that she is an outstanding realtor! Great knowledge of the Austin market, sage advisor, excellent follow-up, and lots of fun to drive around with, I’d highly recommend anyone to work with Wendy on their next real estate purchase or sale
We were visiting our daughter in Austin over a long weekend. Her lease was coming up so we explored the option of purchasing a condo. We visited Urbanspace and fortunately for us, we met Sean Skellenger. He seamlessly scheduled multiple showings for the next day. Long story short, we purchased a condo! He was able to pull everything together in a short period of time. His experience and professionalism is outstanding. He returns phone calls quickly, something we truly appreciated. Sean provided us with a wealth of related information for buyers new to the area. We highly recommend Sean to anyone looking for a real estate agent. He is a pleasure to work with.
Sean Skellenger did a fantastic and professional job with our home purchase. His strength lay in making a perfect match between the homeowners needs and desires in a house, matched with pricing. Sean made sure we were comfortable every step of the way through the buying process. His constant communication with all parties made for a very smooth and seamless transaction.
We had the good fortune of having Sean represent us in selling our Austin home recently. He was very professional and helpful at every step in the process. His market analysis was compelling and he guided us to a great pricing strategy. If you want the perfect combination of professionalism and personality, I can highly recommend Sean.
I have known Matt for a year and have volunteered with him at Downtown Austin Neighborhood Association. He is very professional and honest. Any project he works on is fun and successful due to his commitment and positive attitude. I look forward to working with him in the future!
We leased a condo in Austin through Matt and the process went very smoothly and was essentially stress-free. Matt went above and beyond in accommodating our needs and also in helping out the condo owner. Matt is very knowledgeable about the local real estate market and he will be our realtor when we lease or buy in the future.
Maria is wonderful! Very personable, professional, and attentive. I appreciated how sincerely happy she seemed when I was happy--a truly rare trait in the world of real estate!
I cannot say enough good things about how helpful, friendly, professional, and above all, how patient my Urbanspace agent was with me throughout the process. Thank you, Urbanspace, for sticking by me while I was indecisive, picky, and always changing my wants and desires. I am so happy in my new home. For this being my first property purchase, you made it easy and fun. I look forward to working with you again in the future
Kevin understands why people buy the homes they buy. His sales approach is targeted to find a unique buyer for unique homes. He's able to secure a buyer with an emotional connection to a space. Kevin also has his finger on the pulse of the market. Even in difficult market environments, he's managed to sell my properties because the buyer wanted the home and both sides were able to agree on a fair market price. He loves the art of the deal, the science of finding a bargain, and the joy uncovering a diamond in the rough. Kevin is not afraid to ask a seller for the little things that help seal a deal. On the buy side, I've received autographed T-shirts from a celebrity seller and on the sales side, I've been asked to add my bar-b-que into a sale to help close a deal. What can I say - those little things help and Kevin understands that sort of thing.
We recently utilized the services of Simon Cawley for the sale of our condo in Alicante Townhomes and the purchase of a home in Steiner Ranch. On both transactions, we were extremely pleased with his services. Simon has extensive knowledge of the Austin real estate market. In a tough market, he was able to find a buyer for our condo at a fair price, and also able to quickly help us find our dream home in Steiner Ranch. We highly recommend Simon for all your real estate needs.
Kevin, I really appreciate the outstanding service you and your staff provided me in managing and selling my Shore condominium. As an out of state owner, I needed someone who I could trust to provide the very best advice and service. Your knowledge, honesty and astute professionalism are very greatly appreciated. I will not hesitate to call on Urbanspace in the future for any of my real estate needs and will certainly recommend you to anyone who needs first class support.
Simon Cawley was recommended to me by several friends who have worked with him previously. His helpfulness, professionalism and dedication to finding me my perfect home more than lived up to the reputation that preceded him. Almost immediately after our first few meetings my apprehension and nervousness about buying a home evaporated. I became more and more excited every time we met to discuss the process or view spaces on the market. The first time I stepped into the place that I eventually purchased, I knew I was home. Simon made sure the buying process that followed was as uncomplicated and seamless as possible. I could not have asked for a better person to work with during my experience buying my first home. I highly recommend Simon Cawley and the entire Urbanspace team for anyone looking to purchase a home in Austin.
In a challenging market, Simon was diligent and perserverant in helping sell my condo. He made sure to try several different tactics to get in front of as many potential buyers as possible, and gave my condo (and me and my questions) a surplus of attention throughout the process, from the initial listing through closing.
