What Our Clients Are Saying


Austin, Amanda & the rest of the team were great to work with. I would recommend them to any friend or colleague, as I'm confident that they would be in great hands. Thanks for all the help!


Austin is respectful, professional, and knowledgeable about the current state of the market. He helped me sell my home for top dollar within 2 days of listing. Additionally, he guided us in making a strong offer to secure our new home. He negotiates calmly and fairly for his clients. His associate, Amanda, went out of her way to accommodate my schedule when searching for a home. She is upbeat, professional, and a prompt communicator. I highly recommend this team to all looking to sell/l and/or buy a home.


Austin Castro and his team were absolutely wonderful. I was connected to them via an urgent text from a friend's, but the team immediately got to work and felt like they worked very hard for me. My one complaint is that I never saw Austin in person, but it shows how seamless this team made it to work with and how easy it is for the customer. Amanda did a fantastic job being available via text or to show a house, as well as, being super friendly and helpful. Constant contact with Taria and the team made it very easy to keep everyone in the loop. Thank you for making this a simple process and for all the work/help you have provided me.
