"I can't say enough wonderful things about our experience with Heather! She helped us navigate the intricacies of a new build and pushed where needed to get us the exact home we wanted. She advocated for us where needed and served as a constructive and objective sounding board in the decision making process. We always thought of her as a true partner, helping us navigate each step. She was our velvet hammer during the process and has become a wonderful friend after! " - AKH, Austin /Dripping Springs

"Heather was great throughout the process of looking for a home. As a first time homebuyer I did not know a lot about real estate, but Heather walked me through each and every step. She was clearly knowledgeable about the business, and had connections with other agents, suggestions of cleaners, plumbers, etc., pretty much anything I could have asked for! She also handled the tougher parts of the process extremely well - including when my mortgage lender messed up the day before signing. She was always very quick to respond and very helpful. I cannot recommend her enough!" - Ranya/ Austin Buyer

"Heather, THANK YOU for all of the skill, kindness, care, and attention you gave in our journey to sell my little house. When you talk about being an Austin native, I see your character and connection as a community member, I see your good nature and your good humor, I see your resourcefulness, and I see your ability to advocate for me when I wasn't sure what the heck was happening. You have warmth, creativity, and a can-do attitude that allowed me to totally trust that you were going to act in my best interest, even if it wasn't the most convenient thing to do in the moment. You have a deep understanding of Austin markets, connections all over town to triangulate ideas, hunches, and trends, and know people. When offers started coming in, you were adept at spotting serious offers and entertaining those. You are connected to contractors, trade- and craftspeople who can make a house sale-ready on a deadline. The quality of the work on my house is great, and it was repaired and rehabbed by folks from your Rolodex. I don't think I could have made a better choice in a realtor to represent me when I decided to sell. Thank you for all of your skill, hard work, and kindness." - Stacia (or SB)

"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
