"Heather Powell is everyone’s dream of a residential real estate agent. She guided us through a seamless home buying process – from start to finish. Always timely in her response to our questions while keeping us informed and up to date of tasks that needed to be completed. Her after sale recommendations of different trades people has been terrific. This is a woman who goes above and beyond to help you buy your new home!" - Jane and Steve

"Heather truly goes above and beyond what any other realtor would do. And, she does it with grace and a wonderful sense of humor. To top it off, the house sold in two days over asking price with a very favorable deal to me and closed within the month. It was seamless. She is a joy to work with and my realtor for life!" - Trish

"Heather will go out of her way to make you feel comfortable with the home buying/selling process and has the experience to answer any question you may have. Heather is an amazing advocate and will fight for you every step of the way. She took care of us at every stage of the home buying process and as a first time home buyer, I couldn’t have asked for anyone better" - Samira

"When I decided to sell my house in east/central Austin I wanted an agent who knew Austin, knew the market and was dedicated to provide the service and needed to make the process as easy as possible and maximize the price. I absolutely made the right decision when contracting with Heather Powell. Heather was so easy to work with; anticipating my questions and concerns, keeping me informed every step of the way and being an excellent advocate for me and the house. Not only did she put in amazing effort to market, position and sell my house, she did it with a tenacity and enthusiasm that continually impressed me. While my house was on the market, I moved out of Texas. I had no worries that being far away would be an issue. Heather stepped in and took care of the things that were difficult for me to do remotely. Heather’s knowledge, professionalism, good humor and good old fashioned tenacity resulted in outcomes that exceeded my expectations in every way. I got a great price on the house and closing was totally stress free. If you are looking for an excellent agent who will take the time to understand your needs and work tirelessly to exceed your expectations – look no further than Heather!" - Mary

"Heather is just all around fabulous!!! " - Edith

Programs to Help Build Your Wealth


Compass Concierge is the hassle-free way to sell your home faster and for a higher price with services like staging, flooring, painting and more.

How it Works
  • We work together to decide which services can increase your home’s value the most and set an estimated budget for the work. 

  • When you're ready to start, we will be by your side as you engage vendors and commission work.

  • Once the transformation is complete, your home will go on the market.

  • You'll pay for the services when one of the following happens: your home sells, you terminate your agreement with Compass, or 12 months pass from your Concierge start date. Ask me for more details.

Bridge Loan Program

A bridge loan is a short-term loan that uses the equity from your current home to help you make an offer on a new one, without rushing to sell. A simple solution to bridge the gap between the home you have and the home you want. It is the exclusive option to get up to six months of your loan payments fronted when you sell your home with us. Get special access to competitive bridge loan rates and industry leading lenders. 

Compass places high value on giving back, in both volunteer time and financial donations to local organizations and charities. If you have one in mind, please let me know!

"With Compass Cares, our people will give their time and donations locally in ways that are personally meaningful to them — because no one knows a community better than the agents and employees who serve it."
