"I recently sold a house with the Pettitt group. These guys are the essence of go Local. Husband and wife team helping soon to be or current Austinite's sell or buy the home of their dreams. It was nothing less than a world class experience. Amanda and Alex had everything worked out in a seamless process. They were very much on my side from the beginning. Making sure the contracts were in order and all of the requirements were taken care of for closing. Alex seemed more upset than even myself if something wasn't absolutely perfect! I would use them over and over again. Please give them a shot for any of your realtor needs. They will not disappoint." - Darik W.

"Amanda and Alex combine the talents of building and renovation expertise with canny knowledge of markets and financing. They get our vote for a versatile, intelligent, savvy team for anyone looking for a home or investment real estate in Austin. Their customer service won us over." - Claudia S.

"Loved working with the Pettitt Group! They really know the Austin Real Estate market and went above and beyond to help us sell our house in a short amount of time." - Stacy C.

"I gave Alex & Amanda an unreasonable challenge-find me a condo on the lake in a specific complex with a specific floor plan. The request was unreasonable because I had already checked everything on the market and it wasn't an option. They started working their connections and reaching out to people in the area. Ultimately, they found someone with the exact floor plan I wanted in the exact complex. Then, they convinced them to sell at a reasonable price. Wow!" - Kevin H.

"We absolutely loved working with Amanda and Alex! They found us the perfect house and made the whole process feel like a breeze. They really understands the market and will dig deep to find you exactly what you want." - Caleb N.

"The Pettits are professional, personal and friendly and do an outstanding job in their transactions! I highly recommend them for full service real estate needs." - Terri M.

"As people looking for a home in the Mopac/360 loop of Westlake know, finding the right place is incredibly hard. Amanda's knowledge as well as insider "on the pulse" information within this market is second to none, and the vision, helpfulness, detail orientation, and excellent communication that she and Alex bring to the process made our experience a 10/10.
They are also amazing, grounded people who are skilled listeners, which is becoming more and more a lost art. My wife and I both highly recommend the Pettitt Group and would work with them again for our future real estate needs."
- Keifer M.

"Alright here's the thing, I haven't bought or sold a home with the Pettitt Group yet. I am a real estate investor and have been impressed with how well Alex and Amanda know the central Austin real estate market. Their extensive network of real estate professionals and active involvement in the communities they serve is a huge plus which clearly benefits their clients. They have access to many properties before they are officially listed on the market which is beneficial to prospective buyers.
I am actively searching for an opportunity to partner with Alex and Amanda. Why? Simply put, because I trust them.
The Amanda and Alex dynamic duo are the real thing - deep expertise, uncompromising integrity, refreshing humility and a special ability to form authentic connections with people. They do the right thing no matter what. In my book, that's what matters most and what I look for in prospective partners."
- Jesse S.

"Could not possibly have been happier with our experience working with Amanda and Alex to purchase our first home. They were both so gracious and flexible with their time throughout the entire process. Because of their combined experience in this field, they had incredible knowledge and insight on things we never would have thought of, from the contracts to the inspection and even gave us tips for adding things and updating the home after we bought it. The entire process was incredibly smooth and quick. I've recommended Amanda and Alex to friends and colleagues and will continue to recommend the Pettitt Group to anyone who asks me for a real estate agent in the Austin area!" - Christina M.

"Amanda and Alex were amazing to work with. They are extremely knowledgeable about Austin and the Austin housing market. They helped us sell the Austin home that we had grown out of and then helped us find the perfect home in the perfect neighborhood for our family! We had a ton of questions and they were always very accessible and helpful. The whole process of selling and buying was very smooth and they took wonderful care of us every step of the way! If you are looking for a fantastic realtor and a great experience contact The Pettitt Group!" - Jen T.

"Amanda and Alex are amazing people and spectacular at what they do. I initially called Amanda because I saw her name on a sign in a neighborhood I wanted to live in, and the rest is history. She was so knowledgeable, patient, and reassuring. She helped us sell our house in a very short period of time and also helped us to find our dream house. Her professionalism made us feel very safe and in control throughout the whole process." - Susie F.

"I would not be living in this amazing house if it wasn't for Amanda & Alex. There are so many reasons I'd highly recommend them. When I first met them I wasn't ready to commit to a realtor in our home search. When they called us with an opportunity to be the first to walk through a house (because they knew it had a lot of potential to meet our needs) I realized they were the ones who would lead us to our dream house (though that wasn't the one we chose). They are straight-up when discussing houses, it's helpful to get opinions and ideas from an expert! Also, Alex's background in building was a huge asset in evaluating homes and their potential. He was able to maintain professional integrity while giving valuable input. Amanda has just the right amount of aggressiveness to get you the best deal. We wouldn't have gotten the amazing house we live in know if it wasn't for the fight she put up to get us in the door first. Her knowledge of contracts and setting realistic goals and expectations for the negotiation process made us very comfortable and incredibly happy with our end results. We bought our new house then sold our old house with Pettitt Group and thank the stars above for the team we chose!" - Christi D.

"Amanda helped us find and buy our house in Central Austin and it was a great experience. She has so much knowledge about the market and housing, but also she is great at staying on top of the process and making sure nothing went wrong. It's been 8 years since we bought our house and we aren't considering moving, but she's still the first person on my list should things change!" - Suzy B.

"Amanda is so upbeat and easy to work with. She is knowledgeable in her field and could always offer meaningful guidance and a deep trove of patience when things were stressful. Highly recommended." - Cara Beth M.

"My husband and I were fortunate enough to have met Amanda Pettitt in 2004 when looking to buy our first home. Amanda is incredibly knowledgeable, honest, and on top of her game. We always know we can count on her! She is patient, levelheaded and calm, which is such an asset for clients who get emotional during the house buying/selling process. But, most of all, we could tell that Amanda was truly committed to us finding our dream home. And, she delivers on her promise. We lived in our wonderful first home for 9 years before deciding to move to a larger place. Amanda was of course the only person we contacted when ready to sell and buy again. I also recommended Amanda to my mother when she was relocating from out-of-state. My mother is thrilled with the home that Amanda helped her find. It's such a relief knowing that our realtor is someone on whom we can trust completely and she has our best interests in mind. I whole-heartedly and enthusiastically endorse Amanda Pettitt to be your realtor!" - Saira J.
