What do Clients Say?

3 years (after buying our home) later...This woman has celebrated the birth of our child, has been there to offer non-real estate professional advice, has given recommendations on a variety of topics, has sat down for casual tea and coffee with me and genuinely celebrates our personal successes. She's not JUST a real estate agent, people. Although she IS a pretty big deal in that regard, too. See for yourself. She also put up with a very pregnant, sleepy, jolly rancher eaten ME for some long days of home hunting once upon a time smile emoticon What's not to appreciate about that?! Thank you, Susan Avant, Austin Real Estate Broker

The Morgans

We sold our home in NY at the end of Feb 2010 and flew to Austin a few days later to aggressively house hunt. We were able to make an offer, go into contract, get the inspection done and set up home insurance – all within a week with the help of Susan. We could not have asked for a better realtor to help us with this long transition process.

The Chau's

When it came time to sell, Susan’s fantastic marketing and negotiating skillshelped sell our home in 8 days with an easy close. She just helped us find our dream home and got us a fantastic price. Her communication is fantastic. She’s quick to respond to emails and phone calls and is always available. I’m so thankful we found Susan. She’ll be our realtor for life!

The Skinners

Susan does a great job. I have bought and sold at least four houses in the past 10 years through Susan. She is very knowledgeable and a great person to work with. I wholeheartedly recommend her for anyone buying or selling a house in Austin.

Mr. Turner

We used Susan as our realtor in our recent move from Birmingham. She was terrific, very easy to get along with, incredible attention to detail and very accessible as we were living out of state. We house hunted in Austin twice, and she made great use of our time with tours of the area and appropriate houses to scout. She was helpful with the negotiations and determining fair market value for the home. As we were out of town, Susan was at our new home during the inspection; she recommended contractors for the repairs and coordinated the majority of them. She even provided helpful referrals for doctors, hairdressers, etc. and left us a goody bag at our new house filled with Austin goodies. It was a great experience working with her, and I highly recommend her services.
