"Lilly was truly amazing to work with. I've worked with Lilly to buy a house, then right afterwards, to sell my previous house. She is highly responsive, knows the Austin market very well, and follows through on all the endless details of a real estate transaction. By the time I was selling, COVID had set-in and there was more tepid behavior from homebuyers. Lilly helped us navigate the uncertainty, manage the buyer requests following inspection, and was really diligent in keeping us up to date on everything. She even loaned us some of her own furniture to help stage our backyard area! I highly, highly recommend working with Lilly."
"Lilly is very organized, efficient, and communicative. She has strong skills such as, being empathetic to her client's needs, attentive to the details that matter in the home-buying process, and provides support and advice beyond most common Realtor® standards. I would highly recommend Lilly in your home-buying endeavors."
"Lilly has a sparkling personality, is SUPER conscientious, and is totally professional, a Realtor® dedicated to achieving her client's goal. She achieved mine in record time! I'm certainly looking forward to working with Lilly again in another real estate venture."
"I am so glad I worked with Lilly as my Realtor®. She helped guide me toward the Mueller Affordable Homes program, which I didn't even know I qualified for, and worked with me extensively during the entire new construction process. It was invaluable having her assistance. Without her I would have felt completely overwhelmed - she helped make sure the home builder met our deadlines, made sure I understood all of the different phases of the process and played an important role in making sure we closed on time. I am so happy in my new home and so grateful for everything Lilly did to get me into it!"
"I was in a time crunch in May and needed to find a place to live in Austin quickly before my new job started. I was referred to Lilly through a friend and am so thankful I was. She was so patient with me, listened to what I liked and disliked, and after carting me to so many complexes and houses and condos and duplexes, helped me find a new home in this great town! I'm so happy to have worked with her!"
