WHAT MY CLIENTS SAY
Bettina was recommended to me by another trusted agent in Austin for her expertise in horse properties and her general expertise as a REALTOR® in the Austin area for many many years. I was flying in to find a horse property that would suit my horse's needs and my family's. Bettina started with a long phone call where she asked a lot of questions about what I wanted. She then gave me an overview of the di...

WHAT MY CLIENTS SAY
I just sold a duplex with Bettina as my REALTOR®. She gave me spot-on advice on what I needed to do to get the best price. The was really well done, beautifully photographed, perfectly priced, and carefully timed. It sold quickly. Bettina paid real attention to detail.

Bettina is the best real estate agent we have ever worked with. She was a terrific partner in our search for a home in Austin. We came to Austin from a very different market.

She advocates hard for her clients and did a great ...

WHAT MY CLIENTS SAY
Bettina is endlessly patient when asked to show multiple houses and always tries her hardest to get appointments set up on very little notice from me. She is quick to respond to emails and texts and will bend over backward to get information from the sellers if I have a question. She works hard and sets realistic expectations. She knows her stuff and is personable to boot! I am pleased to call her both m...

WHAT MY CLIENTS SAY
Bettina Babbitt is an awesome REALTOR®! I had to sell my house quickly and she was a neighbor of mine. She listed my house and it was on MLS for one day when we received an extremely decent offer that was very close to our asking price. Bettina even helped me out cleaning out the house something very rare in this day and age. High-five, Bettina!

— Drew W.
