My husband and I had lived in Austin for over 20 years. We had decided to relocate to the Dallas area due to work and family considerations. We had initially decided to list our house with a previous realtor, but recently I had attended a lovely ladies luncheon hosted by Freda in our neighborhood, and was quite impressed with her. We contacted her about our house. She arrived promptly with a wonderful market analysis, with information on herself and agency. Based on her presentation and what we learned, we decided to list with Freda instead.
The Austin real estate market was quite hot at the time, so we priced our house aggressively. Freda said she knew someone who might be interested, so we agreed to show them the property, and they were! After some negotiation, and flexibility and creativity on Freda's part, we came to an agreement. We ended up selling our house before it went on MLS, and at full price! Obviously we were very pleased with our experience with Freda and her agency, and would definitely recommend her to anyone interested in selling their house.

When we decided to downsize, I immediately thought of Freda, a neighbor and friend I had known her for years.
She was a joy to work with, and knew the area and market well.
Despite lots of hiccups in our sale due to the buyers, she persevered and never wavered and worked diligently to get our house sold at a great price. After looking at many areas and numerous houses, Freda was always cheerful, positive and we finally found a great home. We would definitely recommend Freda to others because she was trustworthy, hardworking and knowledgeable.
What led to your decision to buy or sell your home?
We have lived in the Austin area for 15 years and of those, were our home in Round Rock for 10 years. The decision to buy a new home was primarily driven by the need for a bigger home and good schools for our kids.
Why did you hire me to represent your home sale or purchase?
Freda, you were an ultimate professional. What we loved about you was - even before we hired you to represent us, you spent significant amount of time with us getting to know us as a family, understanding our needs - helping us declutter wants v/s needs of buying a home. Plus, from the day we met you in Nov '15 until we finally bought our new home in April '16, you helped us with a lot by providing relevant information about schools, neighborhoods, etc.
Most of all, you were extremely patient through out the process.
What did I do best to help you with your home sale or purchase?
You helped us with two of the most critical things any home buyer would absolutely needs:
1) Buying a new home is extremely emotional and sensitive, you were extremely patient through out the 6 month process - we didn't feel rushed in to making any decisions.
2) Help us navigate the complicated maze of regulations, processes - from mortgage to closing - you kept us straight and on track.
What could I have done better to help you buy or sell?
We could not have asked for a better representative! You are the best - exactly what we needed to help us find our new home.
Would you ultimately recommend me to others?
Absolutely! In a heartbeat!
