"Lisa Harrell is a wonderful and dedicated real estate agent. Although we were building a new home as opposed to buying an existing one, she provided valuable and helpful information and assistance to us every step of the way. She was available to meet with us, often at the last minute, and her winning personality and knowledge of the market and the process was incredible. Lisa helped make everything easier and pleasant for us, from arranging meetings with our builder and mortgage company to ironing out details on the title. She thought of things we wouldn't have known otherwise, and I greatly enjoyed working with her. She is a consummate professional who handles communications and meetings with grace. I highly recommend her. Thank you, Lisa, for being with us through the process and especially on closing day by helping us celebrate our new home. We will definitely use you for all our future Austin real estate needs!" - The Starrs
"My husband and I were working with another agent and we did not feel like we were a priority for that agent. We live in the same neighborhood as Lisa and knew her reputation, so we reached out to her to see if it felt like a good fit. We immediately felt well taken care of and Lisa worked extremely hard for us in a very competitive market. She contacted owners of homes that we liked and she managed to get us into several homes before they even hit the market. Once we found the house that we wanted, everything moved very quickly and Lisa managed to get an offer ready and submitted before we found ourselves in a multiple offer situation. We have been extremely happy with Lisa and highly recommend her. We also used her to list our home and it before it even hit the market, well over asking!" - The Townsends
"Lisa helped me and my husband purchase our most recent house and it was a great experience working with her. She is smart, proactive, has a great deal of experience, and was really great to work with. The purchase of our home did not go smoothly, and there were many curve balls thrown our way. Lisa really thought through all the scenarios and kept our best interests at heart always. She really looked out for us and her wealth of experience helped us navigate through it. She also worked well with everyone involved, to make the purchase go as smooth as possible, and to get the best outcome for us. We couldn't recommend her highly enough!!!!" - The Seegmillers
"As newcomers to Austin, we were not familiar with the neighborhoods. This is the 4th home we have purchased and Lisa was an exceptional partner to work with. From the first conversation, Lisa did an outstanding job of listening to our requirements and immediately recommended areas where we should focus our . Right away she identified a home that was not yet listed on the main websites and worked with us to get in to see the house quickly. The market in this area of Austin was so hot that we had to make an offer right away. Lisa's expertise and ability to strategically navigate a multiple offer situation, resulted in us getting the perfect house for our needs. In addition, Lisa was diligent in her follow up with all partners involved (bank, inspectors, etc) and ensured that the closing, which occurred within 3 weeks, went smoothly. We feel very fortunate to have worked with Lisa, she is truly one of a kind." - The Barneys
"We can't say enough great things about Lisa. She did an amazing job of getting us our home. She is EVERYTHING you want in a real estate agent. She is patient, knowledgable and easy to talk to which made us feel like she was the best person to help us weed through the market to find what we really liked. As easy going and positive she was she went to bat for us with fervor! We truly believe her number one priority was to help us find the very best house for us. Thanks to Lisa we live in a sweet house in a dynamite neighborhood that we would have missed had she not been so excellent at her job and "getting us". Lisa is, and will forever be our real estate agent." - The Ruperts
Lisa’s real estate education began long before she knew the meaning of open houses and closing dates; her parents owned and operated a successful real estate brokerage in Denver, CO for most of her formative years. Shortly after moving to Austin over 17 years ago, she hit the ground running, working first at a smaller local firm, and later with a large national company where she was able to further establish herself as an award-winning Realtor® with consistent multi-million dollar annual production.
Lisa is deeply driven by helping people and investing in relationships. Her propensity to build strong relationships with clients based on mutual trust is a mainstay of her real estate business. She takes the time to tease out the details of your perfect home and has the expertise to negotiate the best value on your behalf. Lisa has invested in and remodeled several properties of her own over the years. This experience has taught her real-world lessons about selecting and managing contractors, controlling costs, and maximizing investments. With a natural eye for architecture & design, Lisa's expertise is instrumental when assessing Mid-century, modern-styled, and other luxury homes. This insight has proven invaluable in offering a higher level of service to her buyers and sellers.
Lisa currently resides with her husband and two daughters, ages two and four, in the Northwest Hills neighborhood. When she is not with clients, she can be found listening to live music at Stubb's with her husband, enjoying a tasty meal at ATX Cocina or Musashino with her friends, or going for walks in one of Austin’s many beautiful parks with her kids.
Now at Compass Real Estate, Lisa holds the Accredited Buyer's Representative (ABR), Certified Luxury Home Marketing (CLHMS) and Graduate Realtor® Institute (GRI) designations and currently serves on the Foundation Scholarship Committee of the Austin Board of Realtors® Foundation. Compass's client-first, tech-driven values mirror her own and make for a very successful partnership. Long after the closing, Lisa remains an advisor to her clients, whether they need referrals for contractors, help refinancing, or finding investment property or a vacation home.
