    "Thank you for being such a great partner in our search!"

    A wise man once said "If it doesn't feel right, then we wait... We'll find the perfect one for you." We talked to countless realtors over a number of years and none of them ever was the right one... Until we met John McCarthy. When I told him that I was hesitant to work with a realtor because theywanted me to do all the work and then send them what I wanted to see - he asked that we give him a try and said he'd love to have the opportunity to prove he's different. And - he proved this right away! He is proactive, thorough, thoughtful and patient. Over the course of several months we saw numerous properties and made several offers. When I was anxious, John would tell me, "If it doesn't feel right, then we wait... We'll find the perfect one for you." If you're looking to buy or sell, you can trust John. He's a business savvy partner and will work with you to do the right thing for you.

    "He was fantastic."

    My wife and I had been looking for a house for months and not getting a lot of help. A friend connected us to John McCarthy and immediately he went to work. After a week we found a house that we liked. John gave up his Sunday afternoon to show us the house and we put an offer on it that night.Two days later we were soon-to-be homeowners. Having never bought a house before my wife and I were not sure what to expect. John was very knowledgeable and explained every detail of the buying process. He was fantastic. I will recommend him to anyone searching for a home. 5 Stars

    "John McCarthy is the BEST!"

    John McCarthy is the BEST. We recently purchased a home in Dripping Springs and John was a huge help and a calming influence. The closing happened very quickly and smoothly. We were actually out of town, and John was able to direct us in the process, and reassurance that it could easily be done.And it was, couldn’t have gone any better. I would highly recommend and would gladly work with him again.

    "John went above and beyond!"

    John went above and beyond to make buying a new house as stress-free as possible. We found the perfect house for my family and closed quickly. He took care of all the details. I couldn't have asked for a more professional and thorough person for the job.

    "Excellent Support System!"

    Buying and finding a house at the top of the market was not an easy task as a transplanted professional like me, being new to Texas. Mary was very professional as well as personal. Mary is not only a fantastic realtor, she is an excellent support system.Anytime there was a house I wanted to see Mary moved fast as houses were flying off the market. She negotiated and helped me to obtain the house of my dreams, worked hard to make sure things like repairs were fair. Mary is amazing and I would highly recommend her to anyone looking to purchase a home in Austin/Texas.

    "Bryan is as good as it gets!"

    Bryan is as good as it gets. He’s very knowledgeable about the process and the area. He is the realtor that is clearly on YOUR side - as it should be. So many other realtors are just trying to get the deal to close to get paid. Bryan would be the first one to tell you to pass if something wasn’t right.And that’s what you want in a realtor - someone to help you make sure you don’t end up paying too much, getting a lemon, or somehow getting screwed in the process. If I buy another house - I’ll be contacting Bryan. And you should too.

    "Tamlyn is my favorite by far!"

    I typically only offer reviews for either very disappointing services or those that excel my expectations, and Tamlyns assistance as my realtor definitely fits into the latter. I’ve purchased over ten homes over the years and have worked with a variety of realtors, and Tamlyn is my favorite by far.Not only does she have a friendly and low-pressure personality, she responded quickly whenever I found a property I wanted to see, and she walked me through multiple offers as it took a while for me to find a home in this market. When we finally found the right home, I experienced several episodes of anxiety: “Oh no, I made a mistake!” After having rented for the past four years, purchasing felt formidable. Each time Tamlyn knew exactly how to respond, remaining calm, which helped me to calm down as well. I most definitely give Tamlyn Steele five stars ***** for her service, and recommend her to anyone purchasing a home in this market.

    "Helped me immensely!"

    I work a job that requires a lot of travel, but I always knew I wanted Austin to be my “home base”. The Austin housing market moves so quick, I was worried I wouldn’t be able to find a place while balancing my professional and personal calendars. John worked with my schedule and helped me immensely along the way.I was able to see all of the homes I had picked as well as many others that fit my criteria but weren’t even on my radar! Because of John’s expertise I was able to find and close on my dream home! I don’t believe I would have been able to complete this process if I hadn’t had him in my corner guiding me through each and every step.

    "We are buyers from out-of-town so their local knowledge was SO helpful!"

    I connected with Dar & Bryan through a mutual friend of ours. After an initial consult with their team, it became incredibly clear that they knew the area so in-depth it was scary!! They were also just as committed to understand our priorities, values & communication style. As we worked through different showings & houses,they took the lead on scouting because they just knew exactly what we were looking for; at that point the process became simpler & the prospective houses really fit our family's needs. We are buyers from out-of-town so their local knowledge was SO helpful, Dar would Facetime us while at a weekend showing (she's ALWAYS working) or send us detailed videos of a walk-through ahead of a showing. We did multiple after-hours tours & I knew their commitment matched ours in finding the right house, in the right neighborhood, at the right price. I would absolutely recommend Dar McLane to anyone in our situation!!

    " I would choose Mary because of her expertise and character!"

    Mary is as intelligent as she is fun to work with. It’s not easy to find a realtor who genuinely looks out for your interests as if they were her own. As a first time homeowner, if I had to do it all over, I would choose Mary because of her expertise and character.

    You will not find a more committed or patient REALTOR® than Caroline. She worked with us diligently right from the start to find the perfect house for our family. She was incredibly patient as my wife changed her mind 47 times. Caroline’s response time to phone calls and texts was unfailingly fast.She submitted contracts immediately upon our request, and with remarkable speed and accuracy. She has a joyful, vivacious attitude and a commitment to quality that shows in every aspect of the job, from the initial meeting to post-closure follow-up. Five stars; would recommend to family, closest friends, or a supervisor at work without hesitation.

    "I was fortunate to have found her!"

    Having moved to Austin in early 2021 - in the midst of the pandemic and extremely tight housing market - Susan was an amazing resource, and I was fortunate to have found her. Her knowledge of the greater Austin metro, different communities and area resources (shopping, parks, freeway access, etc)were on point and exactly what I needed to help guide me in choosing a location and finding a home. I highly recommend Susan

    "Very professional!"

    I just want to say how much I really appreciated working with John in the selling of my dad's home. During a very difficult time in my life with the sudden passing of my dad, John was able to step in and guide me through the selling of my dad's house and filtering through the offers so that we (the family)weren't taken advantage of. He was very helpful throughout the process, even when I was feeling overwhelmed with the estate process. Very professional and willing to step in and help get things done.

    "We are very happy with the work!"

    We are very happy with the work John did to sell our Apache Shores lot. The entire process took less than 30 days! John knew of a Buyer interested in the area and approached him before listing the property in MLS. The Buyer made us an excellent cash offer and we accepted.We used a local Title Company and the transaction was very quick and easy. We will definitely continue to work with John on future Real Estate projects.

    " Bryan helped every step of the way!"

    Bryan was recommended to us through a friend in the area. He helped us move from the Pacific Northwest to Texas for a work relocation. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic we couldn't get on planes to go walk homes with him like we thought we would be doing. Bryan was able to use Facetime and walk us through the homes in the area we wanted to see.When we requested multiple showing of the same house due our fears and distances, he was there with his camera ready to help. Once we found the house we thought was for us, Bryan helped every step of the way. The inspector found some problems and Bryan helped negotiate those fixes into the deal and had contractors ready to go. My better half now sits on her new front porch watching the deer stroll across our property and just loves it. Thank you Bryan for all your help.
