Client Testimonials

"I am writing this letter to express my absolute satisfaction with, and much gratitude to, our Realtor; Lauri McNevin. From the first day I met her she immediately made me feel comfortable. We had recently moved to Austin from out of state and she proved to be a wealth of knowledge, especially when inventory was moving quickly. Lauri was with us every step of the way throughout our entire home buying process. She was professional, courteous, always available to show us homes (even on the shortest of notice), answered any questions we had and was always on top of things. Lauri was extremely patient with me, despite my (extreme) indecisiveness. She was easy to talk to and we always felt we could be completely honest with her. We had an issue arise shortly after signing a contract, Lauri and her entire team went well above and beyond what any agent would do to ensure we incurred no penalties as a result. They were all incredibly supportive. With Lauri’s help, we ended up finding a beautiful home that was a perfect fit for our family. She was always there to explain every step to us along the way, and to keep us on track! We can not thank her enough for everything she did for us before, during and even after the sale. I would, without question, recommend her as a Realtor to ANYONE! "

Elizabeth and Colby Ward

"Lauri is fabulous to work with on both the buying and selling side of any real estate transaction! She always goes above and beyond in countless ways - she’s smart and gets any deal done. On our most recent purchase, she had our offer in and was communicating with the other realtor immediately, which ultimately led to the purchase of our new home in a multiple-offer situation! We have been so impressed with Lauri that we have used her for three transactions in less than four years (including an out-of-town transaction because we trust her so much)! We highly recommend Lauri for any real estate deal! "

Mike & Tamara Woods
