TESTIMONIALS


 

Katie Aspen was my real estate agent, who listed my house and helped me sell it. She was amazing during the whole process. She is very diligent, very knowledgeable of the area and target prices has great contacts in the industry (staging, professional home photos), etc. If I still lived in Dallas, and I needed to either buy or sell another house, I would definitely work with Katie again!

batra23 - Oak Lawn, Dallas, TX

Katie helped me buy my first house which was a beautiful townhouse in the Uptown area. Then after 16 months I got a job offer from the Bay Area and needed to relocate. So she helped me to sell the townhouse in a record-breaking price in only one week period. She is very responsive and communicates information in the best possible matter. Katie is very knowledgeable and would make your house hunting so easy and fun. If I move back to Dallas I would work with her again.

I don’t even know where to start with Katie… She is absolutely amazing at what she does. We spent a year looking for a house with our previous agent. After a short meeting with Katie explaining what we liked, she scheduled 5 visits for us on that next Saturday. In that day, we saw 5 houses that were legitimate candidates, and she showed us more actual possibilities in one DAY than our previous agent showed us in a YEAR. Me and my wife couldn’t even agree on what type of house we wanted before looking, but she amazingly found the perfect house for us within a month.

Regarding the process, she made it incredibly smooth. She looked out for us in the closing process. She suggested an awesome inspector who did an amazing job and found things we never would have found. It was a laundry list of items (most not that big of a deal), but she got the sellers to correct ALL of them.

On top of all that, she’s an absolute joy to be around. Incredibly nice, understanding, and totally gets people. And even though we didn’t know her whatsoever before working with her (we found her on yelp), my wife and I both honestly now call her our friend.

I cannot recommend Katie enough. She is absolutely incredible at what she does. If you use anyone else, especially in this crazy Dallas market, you’re crazy yourself. SHE IS THE BEST!!!!!

Mkelly80 - Northeast Dallas, TX

Working with Katie was great! She helped us find our dream home and get a good deal and also helped us sell our home for top dollar! I would highly recommend her as she knows really well the Dallas market and understands the needs/requests of her clients.

My First Home Purchase.

Michael was very knowledgeable and helped walk me through the process of buying my first home. He took the time to explain everything with me in length. Great experience.

Eric H. - Dallas, TX

I am an out-of-state investor interested in the Dallas area.

David Wyrick went above and beyond with every step of the entire process of helping me find a good investment property and leasing it. As I am out-of-state, I could not physically see the properties and had to have someone I could trust look into them for me. David’s attention to detail and responsiveness to emails were top, which was critical for my particular situation. Once we found a property, David did all the legwork to make sure the deal got finished between suggesting an insurance provider, working with my financing agent, dealing with the seller, handling the inspection, and even getting quotes to handle some of the findings from the inspection. David made the entire experience so much easier than I could’ve expected, and also picked me up at the airport the day of the closing! We closed on the deal less than a month ago. Since then he has personally met with the contractor to handle the findings from the inspection report, coordinated everything with the property management, and has already found tenants to move in for the rent amount he estimated in his accurate and thorough Comparative Market Analysis (CMA). One more example of David going above and beyond: He has even taken care of the garden work since the closing date to keep the property presentable and the neighbors happy of their beautiful neighborhood until the tenants move in. Talk about service and following through with everything! Thanks so much David Wyrick. Looking forward to continuing working with you.

Philip Moreira - Real Estate Investment LLC

Jeff really knows his stuff and is very easy to work with. He’s sold 4 modern homes for me and assisted in the negotiation and purchase of several other properties. He has an extensive network and his knowledge of the Dallas market is unmatched. I can’t recommend any local realtor more highly than Jeff, and that says a lot because I have worked with several over the years.

James Buchanan – Developer - East Dallas

Katie was awesome! I was a first time home buyer who knew absolutely NOTHING about the buying process or even really what I wanted. It would have been easy to become discouraged with how quickly houses get snapped up and the limited amount of houses available, but Katie was my cheerleader the entire time, keeping a positive outlook. She was right, in no time at all she found the house for me. She was always a text or phone call away. She is highly organized and not afraid to go to bat for you. When I had issues with my lender she personally made phone calls to help me get it cleared up just in time to close without a hitch. Highly recommend.

Andrea A. - Dallas, TX

I worked with Katie to sell my condo in Knox-Henderson, and she sold it in one day!! She was very knowledgeable about the area, how to price the property, and knows how to write a great contract. She was a pleasure to work with, and she is the only agent I will use going forward! I can not recommend her enough!

Marissa Berenson - Oak Lawn, Dallas, TX.

I cannot say enough wonderful things about David Wyrick.

Prior to meeting with David, I had a solid idea of the apartments I wanted based on my own research. David listened well and found places that I would never have thought to consider – one of which I just signed for and cannot be more happy about. He found me the perfect apartment with everything that I want, even coming in under budget! I would never have found this place if it was not for David. I cannot thank him enough for how easy and wonderful he made this process!

Steven E Richardson - Dallas, TX

Katie Aspen found my Uptown townhome off MLS. It’s difficult to be a Buyer in this market so I was happy to find an agent who is connected and dialed in! The transaction was easy and drama free. Overall, I had a great experience with Katie and would recommend her to all my friends and colleagues.

Le Paige - Oak Lawn, Dallas, TX

Katie brought professionalism and knowledge to our home selling process in 2015; she also sold us the same home in 2013. We were relocating for a job from Tennessee to Texas and unexpectedly had to move from Texas to Ohio. Katie is wonderful to work with! The moving process can be stressful but Katie makes it peaceful and easy! Thank you, Katie and associates!!!

Kate and Lodi - Cottonwood, Irving, TX

Sell of my property was seamless with Michael. He’s a true professional and easy to work with.

Michael is very knowledgeable of the current market and always provided honest feedback. He provided a superb market analysis report in order to determine a fair selling price. He’s a true professional and I appreciate his commitment to selling my property.

David S - Dallas, TX

Our experience with Katie was wonderful! Her expertise exceeded our expectations. Katie is by far the best real estate agent we have ever known. She has incredible attention to detail, excellent follow-through, and is extremely kind and personable. She helped us find our dream home. We would highly recommend her to anyone, and it was a real pleasure working with her.

Dallas Buyer - Dallas, TX

Jeff helped us with the recent purchase of a townhome in Dallas. He displayed superior knowledge of the market and product. Every step of the way he was there driving the process to a smooth closing. This level of service continues post-closing as well, as client satisfaction is a top priority. I highly recommend him whether you are buying or selling.

Sam Jones - Downtown Dallas

I met Katie when she represented the seller on the purchase of my first condo in 2009. Then in 2014, I chose Katie to represent me on the sale of that condo, which we were able to get top dollar for! She then helped me purchase my current condo – I’m pretty picky so we had to look at a LOT of properties before I selected my current home, and I couldn’t be happier. Katie’s knowledge of the local market, negotiation skills, and focus on making sure I ended up with a home that I was happy with are exceptional! I wouldn’t use anyone else!

rellim73 - Oak Lawn, Dallas, TX

David was a pleasure to work with and made the experience of finding my new home smooth and stress free.

I highly recommend!

Meghan Kino - Dallas, TX

Katie listened to us. And was patient with all our questions and EVERY time we reached out to her she responded immediately. Buying our new home was an amazingly positive experience. Thanks, Katie.

rhomihatru - Euless, TX

It was a pleasure working with Robyn throughout the process of looking for a new home to lease. She is very knowledgeable of the Dallas housing markets as well as the real estate industry. I was grateful for her thorough communication with us as we visited locations and amended our wish list for our new place. She spent the time to get to know my family, our lifestyles, our needs, and even the name of our pet. It is clear that she loves what she does and that will show in the way she will take care of you as a client.

Aaron P - Irving, Texas

I would feel very comfortable referring someone to Jeff. He does a quick job at narrowing the search to homes you actually may be interested in. he is low pressure and forthright. When it came to making an offer, he did a good job of estimating a fair starting price. Once the contract was made, he took care of most of the coordination and details, freeing up substantial portions of my time that would have otherwise been dedicated to closing. Throughout the process he works diligently and aggressively by your side.

Zach Eccleston – Oil & Gas Attorney - Uptown, Dallas

Jeff did a fantastic job with the sale of my home and purchase of my new one! Great Service each and every day.  A great experience the entire way through the process and then some.

Todd Fiscus – Owner Todd Events, Tillmans, Avant Garden - Kessler Park, Dallas

With Katie, it’s not real estate, it’s LIFE. Her keen sense of the market, strategic staging, broad network, and around the clock accessibility is unparalleled. I felt like I was on HGTV. My condo, which at one point expired on the market, sold in one day with Katie. She also gave me personal contacts in my new location, which made the transition seamless and fun! All around, she’s just fierce.

Ashley R. - San Francisco, CA

Best. Agent. Ever…… Katie thank you so much for going so above and beyond to get me into my first choice house. From diagnosing areas needing repairs to talking to my parents halfway across the globe, you’ve done everything so far besides making the down payment!! Me and Sarah really appreciate it. We can’t wai…t till you are the guest of honor at our housewarming party!! If anybody is house shopping I know where to send them!!

Kourosh R. - Irvine, CA

Katie is awesome! I was relocating to Dallas during peak buying season and she helped me find the perfect house within my timeframe. Great to work with and patient!

Donna R. - Addison, TX

Katie was amazing. She met my daughter and me on a Saturday afternoon on short notice, was extremely professional and friendly, already had her marketing plan with her, and had our condo listed before the official listing date, so that we had 18 showings on the first day — and it sold that day for far more than we expected. Then she kept us fully informed of everything we needed to close. Superior service!

Bill Berenson - Oak Lawn, Dallas, TX

Katie is very professional and helpful. Her suggestions and insight were exactly what we needed to sell our home quickly and at the right price. We are very pleased with Katie’s hard work. We highly recommend her for buying or selling your home. Thank you Katie for all your hard work.

Sarah A. - Aliso Viejo, CA

Satisfied on every level. I was very comfortable with you and felt you always had my best interest in mind.

Sean Crowley - Uptown/Oak Lawn, Dallas

Jeff’s professionalism is exceeded only by his attention to detail. He guided our family through the property purchase experience from start to finish with superb results. He is the perfect person to work with on any endeavor because you can trust that he will provide excellent results with minimal oversight.

Glen Hill – Attorney at Vinson Elkins - East Dallas

I had a great experience with Jeff! He showed me options around what I originally stated I was looking for, and then when none of them really ticked all my most important boxes, he showed me some things outside my original search criteria that really helped me refine my own thinking on what I wanted. He was patient, but also ready to move as fast as I wanted to. He understands the process, the market, what to look for, and how to read people and understand what they’re looking for. He’s a strong negotiator, and he got me what I wanted – quickly and efficiently. On top of it all, he’s a great guy and a pleasure to work with.

Mark H. - East Dallas

David Wyrick recently helped us with our current rental.

He was very professional and readily accessible to meet with us and answer questions. He went out of his way to facilitate the process and was a pleasure to work with.

Jennifer Thorsen - Dallas, TX

Katie Aspen represented me for my most recent home purchase in Dallas. Katie was extremely well versed in the available properties and efficient in aligning my needs and desires with potential properties. In an expedited fashion, Katie was able to help me zero in on the perfect residence, negotiate a very favorable bid, and close the deal. Throughout the process, she was very responsive to my needs.

B. Burdorf - Oak Lawn, Dallas, TX

David Wyrick was the best!

He helped my wife and I find a beautiful rent home in Dallas on short notice and with a long list of requirements. We looked over the course of two days and due to his persistence in searching found us the right place.

Luke Cunningham - Dallas, TX

Katie was great, she showed us properties in multiple areas as we searched for the right place. She is responsive and was a huge help to us as we navigated the Dallas market!

Sarah H. - Oak Lawn, Dallas, TX

Knowledgeable and efficient. A+ professionalism & customer service. I would feel very comfortable referring Jeff to any of my friends or family.

Rob Dailey – Interior Designer - Kessler Park & Uptown, Dallas

Katie works hard and knows the business from every angle. She showed me homes that fit my criteria rather than just a sending me all over. She listens and follows up. Great resource! I would definitely recommend her for a sale or purchase.

Chad G. - Oak Lawn, Dallas, TX

Fast and Professional!

I highly recommend Michael. I had Michael to help sell one of my rental properties in Richardson, TX while I was living in MI. He was always on top of things and responded with questions in a timely manner. If you want to make a deal happen and like to work with an energetic and experienced agent, Michael is the one you should work with.

Molly W. - Richardson, TX

I had a great experience with Jeff! He showed me options around what I originally stated I was looking for, and then when none of them really ticked all my most important boxes, he showed me some things outside my original search criteria that really helped me refine my own thinking on what I wanted. He was patient, but also ready to move as fast as I wanted to. He understands the process, the market, what to look for, and how to read people and understand what they’re looking for.

Lia Urioste - Downtown Dallas

I love my new home! You made the whole process very easy, were extremely professional and very knowledgeable. Thank you!

Kim Lemmons – V.P. Sales at Broadlane - Preston Hollow

I have worked with Katie on several real estate transactions both as a buyer and a seller. She has been excellent, both marketing advice and in resolving problems that inevitably come up. I highly recommend her as a real estate agent.

James O. - Oak Lawn, Dallas, TX

Katie recently helped us purchase our first home and her partnership helped make it a great experience. As a first time home buyer, there were so many complexities that we could not have imagined, but she helped us see around every corner and made sure that we were well informed and prepared. Here are a few reasons why Katie is truly exceptional:

1. Does whatever it takes to get things done the right way.
When we were looking at the particular house we purchased, the seller was extremely difficult to reach but it was the only house we were interested in the area. When it seemed like we would just give up, Katie actually personally contacted the sellers to let them know we were interested in and got the process started. I don’t think many other agents would have gone to that extent.

2. Extremely knowledgeable.
Katie knows all the ins and outs of the purchasing process. Finding and putting in an offer was the easy part. All the additional paperwork, inspections, and post-offer negotiations seemed so complex, but Katie made it super easy.

3. Has an extensive network of high-quality partners.
When it comes to inspections or repairs, Katie had a number of partners (electricians, painters, etc) who could mobilize quickly to provide fair quotes and very high-quality work. Katie has a very high bar for quality which made us feel at ease that we weren’t going to receive sloppy work

4. Very practical and focused on value.
Katie also knew exactly that we cared a lot about paying a reasonable price and getting the most value. She helped us navigate negotiating a price that we felt comfortable with while also keeping an eye out for resale. She would not lead us astray into buying anything that she didn’t think she could sell at a reasonable price later on.

We are super glad that we met her and gave as an introduction from a friend. We now consider a friend and look forward to continuing to working with her in the future!

Jay S. - Dallas, TX

I came across Katie Aspen from a friend that she had sold a house to. I wasn’t in the market for a house but a rental property in Lakewood. I was impressed with her promptness and her knowledge, she was incredibly professional with a nice friendly demeanor. Even though it was a lease she treated me like I was buying. She got us a duplex in Lakewood that as soon as we saw it, we knew it was exactly what we wanted. Can’t wait to use her when we’re ready to buy!!

Cresencio Hernandez - Northeast Dallas, TX

Knowledgeable REALTOR®

Michael is hands-down the hardest REALTOR® I know. He is very knowledgeable of the current market and provided honest feedback. He was always very willing to go above-and-beyond and provided excellent customer service. Without a doubt, I would recommend Michael as your next REALTOR®.

David S. - Dallas, TX

We have had a chance to work with a number of realtors – Jeff Mitchell takes the top spot in every area of delivery. A veteran realtor, modern design enthusiast, an amazing collaborator and connector of people, a modern meet up host, a DJ, Jeff is an amazing blend of different talents, skills sets that he so well leverages in his real estate work. We switched agents and gave our home listing to Jeff. Jeff hit the ground running. From staging the house in less than 48 hours to getting photographs taken to virtual walkthroughs videos, and to locking in a sales price – we were on MLS in record time and saw Zillow views skyrocket. We saw the biggest spike in showings. His strong agent network got us immediate attention from interested buyers and within two weeks of going on MLS, Jeff was able to get us a great offer from a beautiful family who wanted to close in record time. He negotiated hard but fairly, his principled and by the book (do it the right way) execution earned him our confidence and trust. His response time, his follow-ups and his overall end to end leadership resulted in a flawless execution. My wife and I would highly recommend Jeff Mitchell to take on your home listing. He will deliver results over and above expectations. His warm/personal character, can do/winning attitude is a great asset. We wish him a prosperous balance of 2017 and tons of success beyond.

Farhan Hasam – President of Big Blue Door - Dallas, TX

My wife and I worked with Jeff last summer when we were relocating from CT and essentially conducting our home search from 2000 miles away. During our first house hunting trip, Jeff took the time to listen to exactly what we wanted, liked, and disliked. Using this information, he was able to preview homes and narrow the list down to a very specific grouping that fit our needs. Additionally, he went the extra mile by previewing the properties and taking video which he sent to us to use to further narrow the list we would visit so we could make the best use of our time when we came down for our house hunting trips. We ended up finding our dream home in a great neighborhood relying solely on Jeff’s direct and honest feedback.

Atit Shah & Dr. Lina Shah - Lakewood

Tailored, personable help. Jeff is willing to take whatever time needed to find the right home and make the client happy. I will definitely continue using him.

Evan Eurich – Trader / Investment Advisor - Uptown, Dallas

Katie is a real estate pro that gets the job done. We’ve sold one home and have purchased two with her. She does a great job of staging and photographing and gets homes sold quickly.

Raya G. - Lewisville, TX

I moved to Dallas and was SUPER overwhelmed. Thank God I met Katie because she helped me catch my breath and helped me not only get the perfect house in the perfect neighborhood, but she negotiated a really good deal. The process went smoothly and there were no surprises.

When you work with Katie you are working with a professional who really knows their stuff. Thank you, Katie, for the awesome experience. I love Dallas, I love my new house and I love that my new mortgage payment is lower than it would have been had I worked with anyone else!

Jen J. - Omaha, NE

Jeff is responsive, professional and super driven to find you what you asked for no matter how long the wish list (which in my case was really longggg). He is very knowledgeable and well connected in Dallas. He is always on the job making sure you are the first one in the door.

Tabrez and Seema Rajani - Uptown, Dallas

Jeff is honest, hard working, keeps his clients best interest in the forefront of what he does and is helpful throughout the process and beyond! I cannot recommend anyone more highly!!

Kay Harris - Uptown I Bluff View

We worked with Katie to buy our first home in 2012. She helped us navigate the Dallas area real estate market and helped us narrow down the area we wanted to live in and ultimately purchase a home. I would definitely recommend working with Katie Aspen when selecting or selling a home.

Richardson Home Buyer - Canyon Creek, Richardson, TX

I have worked with Robyn for a long time. She is always very knowledgeable and very kind. She is a go getter and goes above and beyond. I highly recommend her! She will give the best walkthroughs, be supportive of your decisions, and has an incredible work ethic.

Shane C. - Plano, Texas

Katie is a fantastic realtor and broker! She is very knowledgeable about the market and the various neighborhoods in Dallas, which makes the entire home buying experience so easy and pleasant. She is also an excellent negotiator and gets the deal closed without compromising her client’s needs. I would use her again in a heartbeat and I highly recommend her to anyone considering buying or selling a home!

Mahsa S. - Oak Lawn, Dallas, TX

Excellent!!! Could not be happier!

Michael is extremely knowledgeable and took great care throughout my transaction. He has a true passion for real estate and a work ethic that is unmatched from any I’ve seen in the industry. I would utilize him again in a heartbeat!

Craig M. - Dallas, TX

You were extremely easy to work with, highly competent and knowledgeable! You made great and at same time realistic suggestions of ways to improve the appeal of my house. Sold in 15 days! Very Satisfied.

Dr. Lucy B. Wallace, MD - N Oak Cliff, Dallas

Katie Aspen has been a great Realtor! She has guided us through buying two houses and selling one house within the last few years. She made sure that the process was stress-free by keeping us informed each step of the way. She was always just a phone call or text away when we had questions. I would without a doubt recommend her to anyone that is looking to buy or sell a house. Thanks Katie for all your hard work and dedication!

Sammy M. - Dallas, TX

Jeff is a fantastic agent. He helped us with a recent home purchase that was not even listed on the market, which enabled us to act fast in the buying process. We will definitely be using Jeff for all of our future real estate needs. Not only has he been a great agent, but has turned into a good friend that has included us in many Dallas events.

Cyrus & Lauren LoLoi - Highland Park

We bought our first home with Katie and couldn’t be happier. She is so easy to work with, caring and available to answer even the smallest question. We had just moved to Dallas and needed a lot of guidance which Katie provided. Great experience!

martaandmotaz - Northeast Dallas, TX

Matt K. - Dallas, TX

Katie is an experienced, thoughtful and organized professional. We came to town to interview for a job and had 3 hours max. She showed us 8 houses in three parts of town. We gave her a day’s notice to pull this off and she did. Each seller gave us a window of an hour to see their house. We were dead on track the entire time without feeling rushed or bored. The houses she had selected for us were a wide variety of places in order to give us a perspective of the market. Her choices were outstanding.

She treated us with the same respect as the owners’ properties. I own 7 homes and have dealt with a multitude of real estate agents over the years. Katie was the most responsible and organized of them all.

Greg S. - San Jose, CA

Very Smooth Transition on selling my rental property!

Michael helped me sell my rental property in Richardson. I was no longer living in Texas at the time of selling. Michael met my handyman and helped to inspect the house when it was done. He always responded to my calls, texts and emails fast and kept me updated if potential buyers visited the house with feedback. It was a worry-free process, and I would highly recommend Michael to be your agent.

PJ C. - Richardson, TX

Robyn was not only extremely helpful and patient with us but she is also extremely attentive and knowledgeable. I would recommend Robyn to any of my family and friends.

Ashley R. - Preston Hollow, Texas

I would feel very comfortable referring a friend or family member to Jeff. He is very accessible, friendly and very trustworthy. A+ Service!

J.J. Barea – Dallas Mavericks NBA Champion & current Minnesota Timberwolves Player - Uptown, Dallas

We had the pleasure of using Katie to buy our first home. She worked tirelessly to find the right house (I don’t know if she sleeps). And once we found our house, she helped us find a reasonable and knowledgeable inspector and suggested experts when necessary which saved us some money. Katie was spot on as far as valuation and if we didn’t listen to her, we would have lost the house. As we continue to look for future homes, we will absolutely use Katie again.

Jason B. - Oak Lawn, Dallas, TX
