    "Beth is an amazing agent and I cannot recommend her enough!"

    Beth is an amazing agent and I cannot recommend her enough. Beth helped me with the purchase of my first home last year. She was incredibly patient with all of my questions (and boy were there a lot!). I can’t say enough about her professionalism and knowledge of the industry, and of Austin real estate market in particular.Beth was energetic, knowledgeable, attentive, listened carefully, and seemed to always be available, as if I were her only client, even though I definitely was not! In addition to my home purchase transaction, Beth was incredibly helpful with recommendations for amazing contractors when I wanted to have some work done. Many months after closing Beth was still thinking of me, and reached out to make sure I had filed Homestead paperwork, etc. With Beth it’s not about the individual transaction but about building relationships. I was lucky to have worked with her and highly recommend her to everyone!

    Beth is the epitome of professionalism. I've used her three times and can't imagine working with anyone else. This last purchase was the lot for our forever home. No pressure. No games. Beth waited for us to tell her we were 100% comfortable with buying this property before we moved forward.Thanks for everything Beth. You're awesome!!!

    "I cannot say enough good things about the whole experience with her."

    We used Beth to sell and buy our home in the spring of 2018 and I cannot say enough good things about the whole experience with her. She helped us with every step of preparing our home for sale and connected us with the best resources (painters, cleaners, etc). After much research,she priced our house about 40k over what we thought we could get – and we got full asking price! We hit a few unavoidable hiccups along the way that we could not have navigated on our without Beth’s extensive experience. She really took so much of the stress off our plate. Thanks to her smart staging and pricing, we sold our home significantly faster than other comparable homes in the neighborhood. And when it came to buying a home, Beth really listened to what we wanted and did not waste our time looking at houses that did not meet our criteria. When we did find our dream home, it was Beth’s strategy (which we would have done the opposite on our own) that won us the house in a very competitive market with multiple bids. She is an excellent negotiator and saved us thousands when it came down to navigating our final deal. Beth continues to be a resource to us even after closing! Not only is she such a savvy realtor but also a really fun and enjoyable person to lead you through the whole home buying/selling experience.

    "We can't recommend her enough!"

    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!

    "Beth Barlow did a wonderful job!"

    Beth Barlow did a wonderful job selling the town house owned by my mother’s estate. I was dreading the whole process but Beth took care of just about everything. She immediately went to work, looking through the whole house and making suggestions about small improvements that would increase its value.With a prioritized list, a plan of attack, and boundless energy, and her many helpful connections, the vacant house, once again looked like a home. Since the house was empty, she arranged staging that was both economical and effective. In less than a week I had an offer that was a good bit more than I was expecting and I happily accepted it. If I ever have to sell another property, I would not hesitate to choose Beth to handle the sale. Beth made, what could have been an ordeal, a pleasure. She’s great.

    "She was positive, encouraging, and most of all professional. She was always there when needed!"

    Beth sold the house that was in very poor condition. She managed to make the photos amazingly good. She was positive, encouraging, and most of all professional. She was always there when needed. She gave wonderful recommendations for services to come in and clear out the house, clean it to perfection,and clean the carpet. I could never have done all that without her! Her efforts and contacts gave us a very quick sale, over the asking price! And THEN she was a miracle worker in completing the sale to closing. I have sold several houses over the years; but I can honestly say that Beth did the best, most efficient, successful job of any previous realtor. If I ever have to sell a house again I will definitely use Beth! And I am wholeheartedly recommending her to my family and friends.

    Bought and sold a Single Family home in 2020 in Austin, TX.
    "We couldn’t have asked for a better experience!"

    My daughter and I relocated to Austin from California. We found the Austin real estate market to be daunting with little inventory, lots of competition, and quickly rising prices. We were lucky to happen upon Beth at one of her listings. She was genuinely happy to meet us, full of energy,and sincere in her follow-up and desire to find us a home. Beth is a hard-working, knowledgeable, and scrappy real estate agent. She is tapped into standard tools, like the MLS, but also word of mouth and networking. Beth took a pro-active approach to our search and listened to our needs so we were able to narrow down our search area quickly. When it came time to look at homes, I was always happy with the number of homes and variety of options provided. Each day of touring, Beth was professional, well-prepared and organized. She would map out a route to make the trip as efficient as possible and even offered drinks and snacks! Once we found the right home, Beth became a trusted advisor and provided concierge level service. She helped strategize an offer, compiled key dates for closing, helped navigate inspections, set up and met with contractors for estimates, showed us the home repeatedly - with family in town or just because, and even attended the closing. We couldn’t have asked for a better experience, and we owe that in large part to Beth’s great attitude, knowledge, guidance, hard-work, and willingness to help us find the perfect home. We are all moved in now and couldn’t be happier.

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!

    "Jared put my mind at ease and provided a lot of guidance!"

    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!

    "Allan is an amazing human being!"

    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.

    Bought a Single Family home in 2020 in Leander, TX.
    "My happiness was clearly her first priority!"

    Since moving to Austin in 1987 I have worked with three different real estate agents as a buyer prior to working with Beth. The service they provided was similar in all cases. I told them what house I wanted to look at and they chauffered me to see it. This was a very arduous process that I did not enjoy.My experience with Beth was completely different. Beth listened carefully as I described what I was looking for until she precisely understood my requirements. She then found the perfect house for me - within the neighborhood I wanted to reside - and negotiated a price with the seller that was within my budget. After an offer was made, she followed up at every stage to ensure the deal completed. She made the process seemless. Beth was a pleasure to work with. She impresssed me with her knowledge and resourcefulness. She remained diligent and optimistic throughout the entire process while maintaining a level of professionalism rarely seen today. My happiness was clearly her first priority. Beth would rather forgo a commission than have a dissatisfied customer.

    I highly recommend Beth Barlow to anyone looking for a realtor in Austin. She is extremely knowledgeable, gives excellent advice, and definitely exceeded my expectations. With Beth on board, this nerve wracking experience was actually pleasant. Give her a call and you won’t be sorry.

    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.

    Helped me rent a Single Family home in Austin, TX.
    "She is TRULY an asset when it comes to buying or selling a home!"

    I've known Beth for years, so when I needed a Realtor to help me purchase a piece of land in the wine country, she was my very first thought. Her ALWAYS positive, go-getter attitude was key in getting our deal done quickly and painlessly. She also helped me find a rental house when I moved back to Austin.AND, when it came time to sell my condo downtown, she helped me determine what improvements to make, how best to list it, and how best to stage it. We received multiple offers within the first few days it was on the market and I got more than asking for the property. I can't recommend Beth highly enough. She does whatever it takes to get things done, but she doesn't stress you out with all the little details...she just takes care of them. She is TRULY an asset when it comes to buying or selling a home!

    "He worked just as hard to help us!"

    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 used Beth to sell my house and she made some great recommendations on what to do with the house to get it ready and it sold the first day on the market! She also helped me to buy my next house quickly since mine had sold so quickly. She is very professional and has great knowledge about theAustin area and what worked for me.

    "He also has a great network!"

    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!

    "I would definitely recommend her for your real estate needs!"

    Beth assisted me with buying a home remotely this spring/summer when I wasn't exactly sure what part of town I wanted to be in or what I would fine. She answered my myriad questions, took me on several home/area tours when I was out visiting and was there every step of the way through my closing.Beth knows her stuff and is very professional, supportive and easy to work with. I would definitely recommend her for your real estate needs.

    "Allan and Co. have a pretty deep knowledge of the local market!"

    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.

    "I have used other realtors in the past, and none even come close!"

    I was moving out of state, and needed to sell my Rosedale home. I knew a few people who had used her, and knew that she knew and understood the white-hot close-in market well. She developed a complete strategy for selling home - designed to maximize my returns and minimize my time - and my stress (I was buying a co-op in NYC). She achieved far more than I had expected - and did so in a fair and efficient way (the process to me was as important as the outcome). Once the cold weather hit NYC, I decided I wanted something small in Austin - which would be a good rental property as well as a potential second home for me. I told Beth what I was looking for. Through her network, she found something which matched my needs - before it even hit the market. Once again, the process was important - especially since i no longer lived there. The price was excellent, and the process even better (if only I could say that about buying in NYC!). Beth is the ultimate combination of integrity, market savvy, organization, congeniality, and keen negotiator....the total package. I have used other realtors in the past, and none even come close. I highly recommend her

    "He is incredibly knowledgeable!"

    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!

    Bought a Single Family home in 2018 in Austin, TX.
    "I would never consider using another real estate professional other than Beth Barlow!"

    Before Beth listed our condo, she walked us through some of the improvements that would bring the best return on investment. She was honest, friendly, and very easy to work with. She helped us price our condo at a competitive, aggressive price point, and we were under contract in 7 days. At that time,Austin was at the height of its real estate heyday, and the market was insane. Beth used our wish-list criteria to help us narrow down what part of the city we wanted to live in. She was full of information, tidbits, advice--but never once did I feel pressured or overwhelmed; just helped in the right direction. Beth was a reassuring voice throughout the process. When we found a home we loved, she made sure that we got our bid in at the right time, and it was accepted 48 hours after we first viewed the home (and chosen over five other competing bids). She made sure we had all our paperwork ready when it was necessary, recommended competent and trustworthy associates, and made the process extremely easy. There was almost nothing stressful about buying our home; it amazes me to look back and say that, but it's true. We have no plans to move anytime soon, but I would never consider using another real estate professional other than Beth Barlow.
