Excellent Experience! I have been fortunate enough to have bought, sold and leased multiple houses with Allan and the Austin Market Realty team over the years. They continue to provide top notch Real Estate services every time, with a knack for making the seemingly difficult deals smooth and painless. Five Stars!
"I've sold and purchased many homes in my lifetime, but Allan has been by far the best agent I've ever worked with. He's very knowledgeable about the market,and swiftly addressed any questions I had about our contract and customary practices in TX. He and Christina are extremely professional, yet still make you feel like family."
"This is your guy! Look no further! Sudan is the best realtor I’ve ever dealt with, and we have moved a lot! No question...this is your realtor."
"He has your best interest at heart!"
Amberly was very knowledgeable and patient during my home buying process! She expertly negotiated the entire transaction, making me feel at ease and comfortable. She was always available and easy to contact when needed. Although my lender threw a wrench in the process, Amberly was there to work it out so I didn't lose the home I really wanted. I would recommend this realtor to anyone who needs to purchase a home!
Angie is the most flexible, patient, responsive, and knowledgeable realtor I have worked with in Austin. Angie ensured I received full price for my house and helped me find a great new house. Best real estate experience I have had in Austin and this is the fourth house I have purchased here. Highly recommend her!!!
Jared Williams is an excellent realtor. He made the whole process very easy, from figuring out what I could afford, to finding the right place, and eventually closing. Jared really knows the ins and outs of Austin realty and I highly recommend him.
My husband and I have been working with Beth for about 4 years as she has helped us find beautiful rentals here in Austin. When we decided to purchase, it was a no brainer that we would be asking Beth for assistance. I can't imagine having a better experience. Beth was incredibly patient, always present in our interactions (though I know she runs a busy schedule), and readily available. She helped us narrow the exact neighborhood where we wanted to live, and once we found THE house, we were blown away by her expertise and negotiation skills. She was able to negotiate a way better price on the house than what we expected and settled many details in the closing procedure to our favor. Bottom line, I was left with the impression that Beth truly cared that we end up in a beautiful solid home than making a sale. I am sure purchasing a home can be stressful but Beth worked extremely hard to make the experience pleasant and smooth. On a side note, she was lovely to hang out with. I would highly recommend her to anyone needing a realtor.
Allan was crucial to selling our home! He made the whole process so easy! He was always available to answer questions and he ended up selling our home for far more than we ever dreamed! I could not have asked for a better realtor!
As a first time home buyer, I had no idea what to expect and really needed someone to hold my hand through the process. Jared put my mind at ease and provided a lot of guidance and insight that turned an initially stressful situation into an enjoyable one. He was always supportive and helpful, and it was apparent that my preferences and priorities were taken into consideration with each listing he sent my way. After a few offers on "dream homes" went unaccepted, he encouraged me to look at a home I never thought I'd be able to purchase. I had given up, but he didn't. I fell in love with it, and that home is now mine. It's a perfect match and I couldn't be happier. Thank you for listening to all my thoughts and concerns and making my dream a reality!
Beth has served as our agent for three transactions: two purchases and one sale. Every time we have been enthusiastically happy with her support and expertise. Most recently, she helped us put our house on the market and got an excellent price. We have two kids, a dog, and two full-time jobs, so we were getting a little overwhelmed by the logistics. But Beth helped us prioritize upgrades and repairs, referring us to her excellent network of contractors. She did an excellent job helping us stage and market our house, culminating in multiple bids after only being on the market for a few days. She has such a good sense of the market and she managed the sale perfectly.
She also was extremely helpful (and fun!) while we searched for our new home, ultimately driving a hard bargain for us in our purchase. She is a delight to work with. We can't recommend her enough!
It’s not always easy to find realtors with the experience and knowledge that Allan & Christina have. They are a perfectly curated mix of friendly and professional. Allan was always there to answer a quick question by phone, text, or email. He somehow muscled his way thru a showing when he twisted his ankle because he didn’t want us to miss an opportunity, the man is unstoppable. They were both honest & genuine, there at every turn to guide and counsel us. The process of buying a home can be complex and a bit turbulent at times. Allan was there with his calming demeanor to patiently and comprehensively explain every detail, while Christina was prompt with guidance on the backend procedures that come with every home buying process. Allan is an amazing human being and extraordinary realtor, you will not be disappointed working with him & his team.
I loved working with Beth Barlow on the sale of my home. She saw more potential in my house than other realtors I interviewed. We made some minimal improvements that she suggested and the house sold in 2 days w multiple offers above asking price! You can't do better than that. Beth has a great personality, great communication skills and is a total professional. I highly recommend her!!
Allan is patient in order to truely grasp his clients needs... he helped my with renting 2 apartments back in 2010, and did such a great job, I hired him to help me buy a house in 2012 ... amazing guy all around.
We recently sold our Central Austin home through Beth Barlow, and from start to finish she was fantastic - she was spot on with pricing and suggested repairs/upgrades, had a wealth of contacts to help find contractors (carpet, fencing, plumbing, etc), and even was there to manage contractor appointments when we had to be out of town. She kept us well informed throughout the process and was quick to respond to our questions. We expected a competitive market and she went the extra mile, staging our house beautifully and holding 4 open houses - ultimately getting us a sale above our asking price!
We cannot recommend Beth highly enough - she displays amazing professionalism, is in tune with the Austin market, and truly made the process easy and enjoyable!
Allan was helpful and we enjoyed working with him when we needed to rent a house in Northwest Austin in 2018. I would not hesitate to call Allan again when I need to rent.
We purchased our house in Austin with Beth Barlow as our Real Estate Agent and we would like to express our heartfelt appreciation to Beth for her professionalism, efficiency, support and thoughtful guidelines she provided during the entire process.
Beth has an in-depth knowledge of Austin’s real estate market. Beth stayed in close touch with us all the time, efficiently resolving all popping-up questions and issues, was always available for consultations.
We were buying a house in Austin remotely and that introduced some additional problems in the whole process. However, Beth has always been on the top of all proceedings and resolved all questions and issues in a timely and her typical pleasant and stressfree manner.
In addition to being highly skillful professional, Beth Barlow has always been a cheerful, gentle and no-pressure partner who was a pleasure to work with. We wholeheartedly recommend Beth Barlow to anyone who is looking for a realtor in Austin, TX area.
We have used Allan twice to find a home to lease in the Steiner Ranch Community. He worked just as hard to help us secure a lease as he would have to find us a house to purchase. We will definitely use him when we are ready to purchase a home!
I've worked with Beth to buy several houses and properties (and used referrals from her for out of region purchases). Our latest house is the best! Feels like we are on vacation everyday.
Thanks Beth! Tight market made it critical to move quickly and we viewed the property, submitted a competitive bid and got the house in a weekend.
Beth's services didnt end with the house being secured. She has a tremendous network from the finance person, to the highly ethical plumbers, carpet installation, painters...even the yard guys...they have all been almost as amazing as Beth.
Where do I go to give you 6 stars??
Our story with Allan began when we were living out of state, soon to relocate to the area, and wanted to travel in to town a weekend to look at single family home rentals. Found Allan in an internet search and contacted him out of the blue a few days before. He managed to find a couple rentals to show us, and made time out of a realtor's busy Saturday to meet with us unknowns who were only looking to land a rental. He was very gracious. As we assessed the market area more and decided that even if our move to the Austin area might be temporary, it would still be smarter to buy a home than rent, so we reached back out to Allan. We gave him our specs and soon/often we had listings popping in our inbox. Still out of state, he was our guy here. A listing we liked, he went there for a FaceTime session at the house, he helped us put in an offer which was rejected because we were out of state. He helped us land on a new construction. With the house locked in, he would constantly visit and email us pictures during construction so we could see the progress. He did the walk-thru's with the builder, grabbed the keys on closing and got them to us when we made our move to town a few days later. 6mos later when it became clear we weren't leaving the Austin area, we reached back out to him, now in pursuit of an investment/rental home. Again, specs to him, then listings to us. Again we found new construction in a hot upcoming neighborhood. This time I was actually accompanying Allan during sales negotiations, walk thrus, and closing and got to see him work first hand. Very happy with the deal he got us on that house as well, it was instantly profitable for us with a renter in it. And with us throwing 2 sales his way that year, he was gracious enough to help us with the listing, vetting, and paperwork with the first tenant for the investment rental. He also has a great network of people around him. Bottom line is we can't give higher praises or recommend him enough!
Beth went above and beyond to sell my house. She was very detail oriented and always available. Her knowledge and expertise made the whole process simple for me.
Allan and Co. have a pretty deep knowledge of the local market and go out of the way to make sure that their clients' needs are met. I had a pretty awesome experience with them when leasing our property and they made sure we ultimately got the tenant that we were most comfortable with.
Beth is a great realtor, she helped navigate me through the process of selling and buying a house in one month. The process of buying/selling can be very stressful, she was fantastic at helping me stay on track and not freak out. Beth was always available for any question (big or small or the same question for the 10th time). I never had to wait for her to get back to me, which is much appreciated as one goes through this process. Communication is key and Beth knocks it out of the park on that aspect.
This was the first home I've sold, and I couldn't have asked for more positive experience. I highly recommend Beth as a realtor.
When we first moved to Steiner in 2015, Allan helped us rent a home and then later purchase one in 2018. He is incredibly knowledgeable of the Austin market and his process is second to none. Finding your dream home in a competitive market like Austin can be a long and stressful ordeal, but Allan's team made it go as smoothly as possible. We can't recommend Allan enough!
Beth is a great realtor. She has a frank and honest way of communicating and was able to simplify the entire home-selling process. She has a thorough knowledge of the Austin market, is always available for questions, and has both the analytical knowledge and savvy to maximize the sale price of a home. n nThis was the first home I've sold, and I couldn't have asked for more positive experience. Highly recommended.
Exceptional! Austin Market Realty goes above and beyond. I highly recommend their services often to anyone I meet that is in need of Real Estate services.
Beth has been an amazing asset to my partner and me. She has now been both a buyers agent and sellers agent for us. She is a delight to work with and a shrewd negotiator. She helped us navigate a purchase on a home with multiple offers. Her knowledge in presenting an offer secured us the home below asking price which is amazing given the market and the multiple offers. When we recently sold an investment property she was again helpful beyond our expectations. We were able to sell the property without disturbing our tenant nor interrupting our revenue stream before closing. We got our asking price but saved greatly because she brought a buyer to the table. I cannot recommend her more.
Alan not only helped us with our latest home purchase but he also set up a rental for us. He an his team take care of every aspect from start to finish. If you need a realtor for any reason, use Allan!
Beth is not only a wonderful friend, but also an exceptional realtor. If she isn't already your friend before the home buying/selling process she will be after. That's the type of person you want helping make such a big decision. nI turned to Beth when we decided to sell my house and move closer into the city. She knows the market, neighborhoods & schools like the back of her hand. When we finally settled on a neighborhood and house we loved, Beth helped me get my house staged, photographed and on the market within 48 hours! Thanks to Beth's great strategic & negotiating skills we had six showings the first day and multiple offers. We accepted an offer and were under contract to sell my house and buy the new house we love so much! All during this time, Beth had multiple houses and clients she was working with yet we felt like all the attention was on us. She is great at multitasking and is extremely responsive at all times. She kept us informed every step of the process to ensure we knew exactly what was going on. Her professional yet friendly demeanor made the whole sell/ buying process painless and stress-free. She is hands down the most knowledgeable, responsive and has the highest integrity of any realtor out there. I would highly recommend Beth for any real estate ventures and wouldn't think of using anyone else.
We worked with Allan to lease and then to sell our house while living out of the country. Both experiences have been smooth and Allan definitely went the extra mile in order to accommodate extra needs due to us being away. Thank you again for your assistance. If we ever come back to the ATX region, using your services again will be a no-brainer!
As first time home buyers there was a lot of uncertainty going into the process- thank goodness we had Beth on our side! She took the time to explain every step and answer all of our questions, was timely and professional in her response, and never pressured us into anything. She even pointed out some issues with some of the houses we went to look at to warn us of potential problems- Beth was always looking out for us! We love our new home and have Beth to thank for introducing us to a neighborhood we never even considered. Great experience, highly recommend!
Within about 24 hours found us the perfect house for us that was within our budget, was in an amazing neighborhood and on a street with the best name (btw I love my home address, it's easy to remember). Was there at every step through of the purchase and still keeps in touch. He's gone from our sales agent to friend and we get to see and talk to him all the time. Take a chance on this guy, it's a bet you'll win on.
Beth was an excellent and proactive buyers agent for us. We had worked with another agent for a few months with no luck. After switching to Beth, we had a house under contract in a few weeks. She drove the area looking for coming soon signs, got us in to a few pre market showings and provided constructive feedback in helping us make decisions on offers. We wanted to buy in a hot area with almost no inventory and Beth made it happen.
The thought of buying our first home seemed really quite daunting, where do we even begin?! However, from our first meeting with Allan, I knew that we could trust him to provide us with the guidance we would need from start to finish. Our “perfect home” search criteria was very very narrow, including having the perfect pool and a small location radius. Because of Allan’s careful research and knowledge of the market, we were able to make a decision we were confident in a pretty short amount of time and he secured a great purchase price! He was there for us every single step of the way and was available and prompt whenever we needed him. His experience in the industry is vast and his personality and genuineness will put you at ease. I would recommend him to anyone and would most definitely use his services again down the road!
Beth is amazing, she helped us to find our dream house, after a couple of weeks of offers and rejections, she pushed to get the right one. I loved worked with her, I'll recommend her 100%, she is the right person to help you find your Home
I've sold and purchased many homes in my lifetime, but Allan has been by far the best agent I've ever worked with. He's very knowledgeable about the market,and swiftly addressed any questions I had about our contract and customary practices in TX. He and Christina are extremely professional, yet still make you feel like family. For this reason, I've used Allan for all my transactions over the last few years, and I'd recommend him to others in a heart beat. If you're looking for an agent that's a nice guy but isn't afraid to go toe to toe with a builder, you should call Allan. He'll get the job done and done well.
I loved working with Beth Barlow on the sale of my home. She saw more potential in my house than other realtors I interviewed. We made some minimal improvements that she suggested and the house sold in 2 days with multiple offers above asking price! You can't do better than that. Beth has a great personality, great communication skills and is a total professional. I highly recommend her!!
Allan and Christina are incredibly helpful. After my daughter had a bad experience with another broker, Allan and Christina helped her find a great condo in the UT area at a reasonable price and on very short notice. Allan showed us many of places on a Saturday and promptly responded to our questions, even on a Saturday night and Sunday. They also helped usher through the paperwork in a very quick and efficient process. We would highly recommend Allan and Christina for any residential real estate need in Austin!
Allan has helped my family purchase various homes in the Austin area and we keep coming back and sending people his way. Allan understands the market and has our best interest in mind. He cares about his clients and goes above and beyond to make sure they are comfortable in their decisions when purchasing homes. He also goes out of his way to assist with any issues that may arise throughout the process of purchasing a primary or investment property. He is able to send over an expert on a moment's notice when an emergency arises even long after the home has been purchased (plumber, exterminator, handyman, gardener etc). His expertise and client appreciation makes him a realtor and very quickly a part of the family. I highly recommend Allan's services to anyone living in Texas or those relocating here like my family has. Last but not least, Allan has also helped us finding tenant for our properties.
We found Allan through a local community charitable event he was sponsoring; the event was raising money for an Austin based canine shelter which we also support. Allan explained how he could help us lease our Steiner Ranch home to the right tenant. We have worked with him now on several occasions and have no hesitation in recommending him to our friends and family.
Allan helped us settle in and find a rental when we relocated to Austin/Steiner Ranch. Will most certainly use his support if we decide to buy, and Would recommend them for Anyone looking to rent or Buy in steiner ranch.
Allan is an exceptional realtor to have on your side. He will search high and low to find you the house you want, the detail you want, the price you want and leaves no stone unturned. He works with you and the sellers to find the best possible agreement. I have worked with Allan and recommended Allan. I can't put into words how instrumental he was in relocating us and finding us our perfect home.
Alan and Christina could not have been more helpful. We were new to Austin and did not know much about the different neighborhoods and values. Allan provided us valuable information to help us in our search for our home. He made himself available to show us multiple homes on weekends and evenings. Christina made all the appointments to make sure it all went smoothly. They were both in constant contact to keep us informed. Allan was also very knowledgeable of the new laws governing real estate closings, which helped our closing to go smoothly. I would highly recommend Allan and Christina for all your Austin area real estate needs.
Loved!! Allan he is very Knowledge in the Market and help guide through out. He was very patient with us and gave us his undivided attention. He was truly there for us . We could have not asked for a better Real Estate Agent! He is Truly a Gem those are hard to come by in this market!
Loved Allan's professional help! Allan helped us to quickly find tenants to fit our very specific needs. We didn't want to move our furniture into storage and we didn't want any pets in our house while we were out of the country. Allan found us a fantastic family with no pets who leased our house fully furnished. Exactly what we wanted! Allan always responded quickly to my questions and he is happy to help with my housing needs.
I met Allan while I was trying to rent my house on my own and was having difficulties generating interest and couldn't spend the time needed to do an adequate job. I immediately felt comfortable after meeting him and decided to use his service instead. It paid off as he was able to rent my house and all along was very responsive and overall just very professional.
Allan helped us find the most perfect house to rent! We couldn't be happier with his service and all that he did to help us find the perfect home for us! We would recommend his real estate knowledge to anyone looking to rent, buy or sell! We look forward to working with Allan on our first home purchase in the future! Thanks again Allan!
Allan Griego is an exceptional professional in the real estate field. Our experience with Allan has been 100% satisfactory based on his knowledge of the Austin market, attention to detail with handling our specific needs, excellent communication skills and accessibility. Allan's enthusiasm and diligence was present from our first meeting to the successful completion of securing our home.
Allan helped us secure a lease in the Steiner Ranch area. This task would have been impossible without him. We tried for several weeks on our own. He was extremely knowledgable and always willing to go the extra mile. He is extremely responsive and helpful. We will definitely use Allan when we are ready to purchase a home here in the Steiner Ranch Community!
I have bought and sold (and rented) real estate through Allan and his wife. He is an outstanding realtor. He is hardworking, detail oriented, experienced, and a great negotiator. I highly recommend Allan to anyone wanting a great real estate services.
Allan helped us to find the perfect rental house in Steiner Ranch! Allan was very knowledgeable about the area and incredibly diligent about responding to emails and phone calls. I highly recommend Allan to anyone looking to buy, sell or rent a home in Austin!
Allan was nothing short of a godsend for our family during an unexpected (and quick) relocation to Austin. He was excellent at finding exactly what we needed and was able to get us in the perfect place right on time. I would highly recommend Allan to anyone I know looking for an honest, down to earth guy who isn't trying to pull anything over on you. (No hidden fees etc) He worked incredibly hard for us so all that was left to do was sign on the dotted line! Thanks again Allan!!! Update- Allan has since helped us find our perfect home to purchase! He has been a huge part of what made our move to Austin a success and I can't say enough good words about him. He's an upfront, honest, and hard working realtor. I feel like we genuinely made a friend through our transactions. Thanks again Allan & Christina!!!
We contacted Allan to rent a house he was managing the lease for. Unfortunately, this house (although it was great) would not work out due to the timeframe for our move-in date. However, Allan took the time to learn what we were looking for and had another rental house in Steiner which worked out perfectly for our move-in and leasing timeframe. Allan is professional, courteous, fair and helpful. He answered all of our questions, no matter how odd they were.
We were moving to Austin from out of state and had the good fortune to meet up with Allan. We had identifed a property in Steiner Ranch that would be ideal for our situation, but were coming in during a booming rental market. Allan took the time to get to know us and worked hard to present our offer to the owners as the top choice. He represented us well and we are thrilled to be a part of the community now. Allan is very personable and passionate about his work as a real estate professional. Based on our rental experience, we referred our good friends looking to purchase a house to Allan, and he was able to find them a beautiful home at a great price. Whether you are looking to rent or to purchase in the area, I would highly recommend Allan Griego.
Our family was in between buying homes and looking for a short term rental, which is very hard to find in our neighborhood, Steiner Ranch. I reached out to Allan just to "check" and see if he knew of anything available. He didn't at the time, but always kept looking for our family, even when we weren't aware! On the day we were out looking at apartments, which would be hard based on the size of our family, Allan called and found a potential place that actually ended up working out for us! He had kept us on his mind and looking for opportunities for over two months and came through! When other Realtors never followed up after the first contact and basically said, "you are out of luck," Allan came through. Plus, every step was easy, facilitated quickly and was extremely helpful.
Allan and I met a couple of years ago through a mutual friend when I was looking to rent. He was very helpful, but I decided to stay where I was. When I was ready to rent this year I went back to Allan because he had been so helpful previously. Allan provide me with good advice going into the rental process and was there for me to answer any questions. He was a great advocate and very knowledgeable about the area and rental market. He worked with us daily to find a home and helped us to negotiate the terms. Unfortunately my experience with the landlord was taxing, but Allan stepped in and went above and beyond to help where he could. We are now in our home thanks to Allan. Not only is he a great real estate broker, but he is just an all around great person. If you are looking to rent or buy, Allan is definitely the right person for you. I know when we're ready to purchase we'll be giving him a call.
I can't thank Allan enough for the help with our last residential transaction. His knowledge of the area and persistence in securing a place for us to live was above and beyond what we could have asked for. He negotiated us a great deal and we are very grateful for his hard work. He is a highly competent real estate agent and would recommend him to anyone.
I worked with Allan for several years on various transactions. For nearly a year he worked to find me a specific type of property, only for me to find my situation changed and I had to wait. Nearly 1 year later, not only was he able to pick up where we left off and adjust to fit my new requirements, he did so without being upset about the wasted time in between (due to my fault). His goal was simply to ensure I found the right place and to be happy. We eventually found a wonderful home that was not yet on market. Allan worked hard to find out where to submit an offer and to have something ready as soon as the home was officially listed. We were able to be the very first offer and secure a foreclosed home below market value. I was very happy! Several years later I needed Allan to help me find tenants, go through the lease signing, and also later assist with some property management aspects. His local market knowledge, negotiation skills, and contract experience allowed me to both easily purchase and rent my home. Since then, he has been able to help me add a lease extension addendum for current tenants as well as advise me on the market for a potential sale in the future. Additionally, I have been seeking investment property (land), and he's assisted with this. Allan is responsive, honest, hard working, and one of the most knowledgeable realtors I've worked with in 4 states- Texas, Washington, Pennsylvania, & New York. I only wish he were licensed everywhere so I could continue to use his services outside of TX.
We came to Austin during the week of thanksgiving to find housing for our relocation in December. We were only in town for a few days and due to the holiday we did not secure a home before we needed to go home. That said, allan understand what we needed and promised to keep looking. True to his word, he found a home for us a few days later and we signed a lease on a home we had not seen. However, Allan went to the home personally to make sure it didn't have issues that could not been seen by a photo. Relocating across the country to a home sight unseen was way out of our comfort zone. When we arrived to Austin and moved into our home it exceeded our expectations. We greatly appreciated Allan's honesty and diligence to secure a home for us that would be a great fit for our family.
Allan did a great job during our home buying experience. He gave us important information about different areas in Austin, as well as public school ratings and neighborhood data. He also did a great job negotiating our contract and made sure every small detail was addressed.
We started our search for a home with another agent. When we became extremely unhappy with her ability to represent our best interests, we switched to Allan. He understood what we wanted and showed homes that matched our wants and needs. He was professional and knowledgeable, yet treated us like family. I would recommend Allan and his wife. They are truly a dynamic duo.
Allan was helpful, attentive, professional and made the home search process enjoyable! He knew the neighborhood and found us exactly what we were looking for! I would definitely recommend him and use his services again! -Dan W
Allan was very professional when we were looking for a home in the area. He knew the neighborhood and market and helped us negotiate a great price. He always made himself available and helped us navigate all the paperwork.
"Allan Griego was exceptional in helping me locate and buy the perfect house. From our 1st meeting all the way to close he was always ready to help. Not only did he negotiate one of the best prices ever in the neighborhood, he also had the builder furnish it with tons of furniture. I highly recommend Allan!”
"Amazing" Allan helped us get through a few things which the Builder tried to overlook. Like replacing a broken countertop, which they tried to repair only. Plus he is friendly and easy to communicate with.
