"My husband and I have completed numerous transactions with Wendi Slaton Anderson over the years, including for buying and for selling lots and houses. There has been a wide range of prices for those transactions and Wendi has approached every single one with great deep knowledge of the market(s), the histories of each lot or house and of the area in which they were located. She did thorough research every time and provided sound and valuable advice. She is always responsive, via text, phone or in person and has attended all of our closings personally. She has earned great respect in her field and I have recommended her numerous times. There have even been 3 occasions where she negotiated a better deal for me than I had suggested. We cannot recommend her enough!" - Jean

"Wendi is an astute, highly effective representative. We recently sold our home and bought a new one with her assistance. She is always responsive, always knowledgeable, and always a smiling reliable partner. Wendi took pains to help us keep the house looking attractive during the time it was up for sale. She always had literature and refreshments out for potential buyers and she or her assistants checked with us frequently to make sure everything was going well. Wendi always called us to make sure that a showing was convenient for our schedule first and we were treated with consummate respect. We always got feedback about how our house was received. When we were buyers Wendi sent almost daily emails of houses in our desired area and price range and provided us with information whenever we wanted to go take a look. We really felt like she was looking after our interests firmly and believe me, it's a secure feeling having a knowledgeable realtor really on your side! When we purchased a home Wendi made sure we had a good inspector and the right title company at closing. Everything went smoothly and predictably. Call her with confidence...she's absolutely tops." -Marco and Diane

"My wife and I recently purchased land in Dripping Springs for our future dream home with Wendi. With her profound knowledge of the market and our personal situation in mind, Wendi helped define what we wanted and made sure that the execution of the purchase went smoothly. She was there with us walking the properties even when our search landed us way out in the country. When we had questions or concerns Wendi was always available and gave us great advice. With her help we found a beautiful 5 acre plot a stone’s throw from Hamilton pool and Reimer’s Ranch. When the seller ran into problems with the county and the sale was repeatedly postponed we were extremely glad to have Wendi making sure that the contract was always in our favor. Another challenge was that my wife and I were living in Switzerland at the time of the purchase. For this reason we were extremely glad for Wendi’s expertise and commitment. We couldn’t have imagined someone more suitable than her" - Max and Michele

"My wife and I have been looking for our dream home in Austin. Wendi nailed it for us. She is the most professional, detailed oriented, confident realtor I have dealt with ever. I have bought and sold over 25 homes and Wendi far outdid every realtor I have dealt with from Atlanta to LA. Wendi’s negotiating skills are the sharpest when it comes to getting the best price for your home you are selling as well as the dream home you are buying. If you are buying your starter home or a multi-million dollar home, Wendi will treat you the same: with extra attention to inspection details, negotiating price, and a smooth closing. We would be delighted to have her on our team!!!" - Amy

"Wendi has been our realtor/ for over 10 years and has led us through many real-estate transactions. She makes the buying/selling process fun, exciting! managing the process so well, she lets us focus on the enjoyable parts of buying and selling properties instead of getting bogged down in all the nuances. We would never work with anyone else." - Wendy W.

"My fiance and I just closed on a home with Wendi and her team as first time home buyers, and I rarely if ever review anything, but feel that if I can guide one other purchaser doing this for the first time her way, then perhaps someone else will get the Cadillac experience we did. Wendi is one of the most soulful, caring and fun people you will ever meet. She is also razor sharp, knowledgeable about every aspect of her business and wise in negotiating. She took a large, intimidating decision and purchase, and made it make sense and the process simple and reasonable. We are beyond thrilled, and wish we could just keep buying houses so we could continue spending time with her. Simply put I cannot recommend Wendi and her team enough. Top to bottom they are awesome and there are none better. Stop searching and meet them!" - Andrew A.

"Working with Wendi & Katie was a pleasure in a process that we were very nervous and unsure about. Their kindness, patience and expertise helped us locate a great house in a very quick period of time. Wendi worked her negotiations magic and we are very pleased with the overall experience and love our new home!" - Stephanie M.

"I can't say enough about Wendi and her team. Wendi made the process so incredibly easy to understand and was so very patient and available to us. We found a house we never dreamed could be ours and it somehow seemed so simple and smooth. She was with us every step of the way and once we closed, added so many social touches to the celebration and house warming. She also provided us with the best contacts in the business to act quickly and save money. " - Beth B.

"PERFECT DECISION: As a Realtor in the Metro Atlanta area, I sometimes have the task of referring my clients to other Real Estate Professionals. I had the opportunity to refer my client/friend (Alice) to another professional in Austin TX. I thought not having a personal relationship with anyone, I would have a difficult time choosing someone who I could feel confident about helping Alice. This was not going to be an easy transaction since it involved an estate and my client would need a lot of help. This turned out to be NOT THE CASE at all. I use a website (NAGLREP) which has a list of Gay or Gay Friendly professionals and Wendi was . After reading all of the bio’s on the site, I chose to call her first and was immediately impressed. She was knowledgeable, personable, easy to talk to, she knew exactly what we were going to need to have done, and was willing to facilitate any need Alice would have. Needless to say job well done." - Scott M.

"Wendi and her team (especially Katie) kept us from loosing our minds during the building process. One minute she was talking us off the ledge and the next she was laying down the law with the builder. She is knowledgable about the market and is willing to go the extra mile for her clients. Both her and her team seem to care more about you as a person as opposed to making a sale. Truly grateful. We will definitely work with the team again!" - Harlan

"After just about every conversation with Wendi, we felt like our words didn’t quite allow us to thank her properly for all she had done. It is the same with this review, we don’t think we can adequately convey what a gift she is, but we can share a little about our experience. Wendi is at the top of her game. We found out about her through an impassioned referral, and when we visited her website and read her bio we were blown away who she is as a professional and what she stands for as a person. After our first conversation with her, we rested assured that we’d found the person we wanted, and trusted, to represent us. She is as highly-skilled a professional as you will find, and she is a kind-hearted person who genuinely cares about her clients. Communication with Wendi is a joy. She is accessible, friendly, knowledgeable, articulate, and honest. We were so grateful to have her at our side as we navigated the complexities of the market. She is very personable, easy to talk" - Will F.

"From the moment we met Wendi she guided us through the housing buying process with care and valuable insight to navigating the fast moving Austin market. It was July 4th when we spotted our potential home on the MLS and thinking it was a long shot we sent her a text. She was in the process of driving back from California and still agreed to meet that same afternoon to walk through the home. We put an offer in on the same day and happily closed a month later. She also provided excellent suggestions for a title and home warranty company. It's this type of dedication and thoughtfulness that you can expect when working with Wendi and her team." - Beth J.

"Wendi and her team are hands down the best real estate experience there is. Their level of care, expertise and responsiveness all combine to make navigating the crazy Austin housing market much easier. This is our third time working with Roots and we’ve felt like family every time; we wouldn’t work with anyone else!" - Tim

"Wendi has worked with us in the buying and selling of TWO homes! We are return customers and will continue to be with any future properties. While some Realtors take off Sundays or stop working after 5pm, Wendi works nonstop, putting forth as much effort as it takes to find/sell your home. She is vigilant in getting you what you are looking for in a home or out of one. Most importantly, her personality and energy is what you will fall in love with (also comes in handy when negotiating)." - Stephen N.

"I could not have been happier with my experience with Roots. Wendi Slaton Anderson helped my girlfriend and I find our perfect west Austin home together. She is the epitome of professionalism, and worked so hard to make sure we were happy every step of the way. There were a few places that we liked, but didn't feel like any of them were "the one," so Wendi continued with us until we found exactly what we were looking for. She was patient, flexible, and extremely knowledgeable about every aspect of the process. Whether you are looking for a first home on a budget, or are looking to buy your third vacation home, Wendi will work endlessly for you to find that perfect place." - Eleanor S.

"Wendi helped us find and purchase our first house. Just as some of these other reviewers say, she treats a smaller budget first time home with the same attention as a seven figure purchase, which I hear is very rare to find in a real estate agent. She's extremely helpful with realistic expectations, honest about negatives, positives and potential resale value. My favorite quote from her is "I want you to get a great house at a good price because I'm the one that has to help you sell it 5 years from now." It really makes you feel like she cares and is in it for the long haul. Her response time is amazing as well as her dedication and negotiating skills. She helped us get an amazing starter house for under market value, which is a difficult challenge in a real estate environment like we have in Austin right now. I plan on highly recommending her to friends and family as well as working with her for any future real estate needs." - Aleasha B.

"We would give Wendi Slaton Anderson and her team more than a 5 star rating if we could. From the very beginning Wendi made us feel comfortable and right at home in Texas. She took time to understand what we were looking for and why we had some 'special needs' to look for in a home. These needs did not deter her and she found homes that would work for us. Since we were moving to Texas from another state, we appreciated Wendi educating us with the way things are done and what we should do. She has an easy going yet professional style. We planned to spend 3 days house hunting. We did it in one. If you want a killer negotiator, then you need to let Wendi go to work for you. In addition, her staff was right on top of anything we needed and we never had to wait long for responses. It is refreshing to work with service oriented, professional people. Thanks Wendi and Team!" - Julie H.

"When it came time to sell our house I went through the process of interviewing 3 different . I asked question after question and posed hoop after hoop to jump through. Wendi ran circles around her competition, and she was the only one who actually made me feel like our house was going to sell...despite being in a slower-moving area. She blew those other out of the water. And as if that weren't enough, the best part is that she got us $5,000 above the sales price we'd agreed to take! It was strategic negotiating and years of experience at its best! We have since referred Wendi out numerous times to equally happy and impressed friends. " - Joel R.

"Wendi helped my husband and I buy our first home! Buying in Austin is no easy task, and being a first time home buyer can be confusing and nerve-racking. Wendi was kind, knowledgeable, and patient with all of our questions. She was willing to fight for the things that we thought were important, and we truly appreciated that. She was available and flexible when we were dealing with a tricky seller, and she made sure that we were well taken care of. Thank you Wendi (and Krystal too!) for all of your help. We keep saying that we never want to again, but if we do, we'll be sure to give you a call! " - Taylor T.

"I am new to Austin and had several friends recommend their realtors to me, but with Austin being one of the hottest real estate markets in the US, I knew I needed a champion realtor to find the right home. Fortunately, I met Wendi chance and instantly asked her to be my realtor. Her personality was warm, professional and confident- no hard sell or pressure. I have bought and sold over 15 homes in the last 25 years all over the US and have NEVER had this type of 5 star service or experience than what I had with Wendi Slaton Anderson. Wendi brings professionalism, creativity, sharp negotiating skills, and experience with proven results. Her communication was frequent and totally on the mark in finding solutions for my needs. She completely heard my needs, gave me what I wanted and then more. She surrounds herself with incredible teammates (Krystal Shaw, Roots Team) so no ball is EVER dropped. Her large network of business associates made the purchase and closing a complete breeze with absolute NO bumps in the road. Never have I experienced such a Ritz Carlton experience of buying a house from the search to the closing. I have bragged on her service and company to everyone I know. Buying a home in Austin is a real challenge these days, so if you need the sharpest and brightest tack in the business, I would highly recommend Wendi with Roots Residential Group. " - Amy L.

"From the moment Wendi started working with us, she was very pleasant, professional and attentive to all our questions and needs. She knows the market well and stays on top of everything associated with a transaction We will definitely use her in our future business needs and will recommend her to all our friends and family." - Dan
