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

I don't usually write up recommendations, but when somebody does an exceptional job for me, I want to thank them by making it known to others how much I appreciate the work they did for me and how they might benefit from that person's help as well. That is the case with Susan Avant, our realtor. Susan Avant handled the selling of our beloved 804 condo and did a superior job handling all aspects of it. There wasn't a single question that we could come up with that Susan didn't know the answer to immediately. All of her feedback turned out to be spot on. Her experience is 10 miles deep. To us, that is key to making sure the transaction goes smoothly. In our mind, knowing how to handle situations that pop up in realtime quickly and correctly is what separates the pros from the others. She was highly responsive - even at night, weekends, and whenever the situation called for it. Susan also aggressively marketed our condo - without us even asking her to. For example, imagine our surprise when we found our condo on the back cover of the Compass full-color magazine! In addition, she marketed our property to contacts in other geographies such as Houston. Many buyers in Austin come from other geographies. That "getting the word out" maximized our exposure and ultimately helped find interested buyers. Sandy and I strongly recommend Susan for any residential real estate effort you may have. You can reach her at (512) 917-9936 or susan.avant@compass.com.

The Bellucci's

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.
