"Robin is the best realtor we have dealt with, she was impressive. We'd look forward to working with her again!" said Mike Heyl, principal at Heyl Homes from whom I bought a house in Barton Creek last December. We were relocating from New Jersey and it was our 7th corporate relocation in 30 years, so my wife and I have learned from each transaction and we've become very selective about the realtor we pick to buy a house in a new, unfamiliar location.  Robin was recommended to us by business colleagues who had done repeat transactions with her in the past and upon interviewing her it was clear that she would: (i) invest the time and energy to understand the lifestyle my wife and I were looking for, (ii) understand the trade-offs we were willing to make and be creative in optimizing them for us and (iii) hustle when it came time to do a transaction and advocate for us with the seller. We started our engagement with her in October and closed on a home purchase 2 months later, but our relationship with Robin will continue. We've already recommended her to friends and colleagues that are looking at moving to Austin.

My husband and I worked with Robin Banister on the sale of our home and purchase of our new home all while planning a wedding that was remote in a time frame of 45 days.  Robin quarterbacked both deals and helped us maneuver through very precarious times where jumbo loans products were scarce and complex.  She managed both transactions that included multiple stakeholders and meeting tight deadlines. Robin successfully helped us close both transactions and we were extremely pleased with the outcome and process along the way.  I would highly recommend Robin in the future and would entrust her with all my real estate needs

Thank you so much for making this go so smoothly. You're our favorite realtor!

Our family has worked with Robin for over 12 years, starting with our initial move from NJ to Austin. There's a good reason--actually, several good reasons--why we are devoted to Robin. She knows how to steer you in the right direction without ever being pushy; she'll tell you straight up if she doesn't think a property is worth looking at or pursuing, and points out the cons as well as the pros; she is always available to talk through an issue, or to even, occasionally, play therapist if that's what we need. She isn't afraid to work hard and will do whatever it takes to get the job done. She's honest and ethical. And she doesn't disappear when the deal is made--she is always there if anything comes up. We cannot recommend her highly enough and have referred her to as many friends as possible!
