My husband and I are so grateful for the hard work Liz Newell and Katie Daniel put forth in finding us the right home so quickly. Liz was extremely helpful in explaining everything and really holding our hands through the whole process as we had just moved from Dallas. She was very knowledgeable and quick to respond every time. Katie did a great job keeping us all buttoned up with emails and scheduled with important dates to remember. We highly recommend Liz and although we hope to be in our new home a very long time, we will definitely use her again!

This was my first home buying experience, and Liz could not have been more helpful. Several months before I was going to be ready to move, I spoke with Liz and discussed with her what I was looking for in terms of location, price range, age, size, etc. She set me up on an automatic email for homes that met my criteria, and even though it would be a few months before I got serious, it was very helpful to be able to develop my knowledge of the market. Before I was ready to begin looking, Liz helped me identify several lenders that suited my needs. I was able to get pre-approved very quickly at multiple lenders that Liz had put me in touch with. When I was ready to begin looking, Liz set up appointments at four different homes; three that I had identified from the emails I had received and one that she had identified. We looked at all of the residences on a Monday when I was able to take the day off of work. The second residence we visited was exactly what I was looking for, and by the middle of the week I had decided to make an offer. Liz helped guide me through the process of making an offer, reviewing the counteroffer, and making my own counteroffer. She explained every step in a manner that was easy for me to understand and provided invaluable advice. By the Saturday after we had initially visited the four homes, I was under contract on the house that I would ultimately buy. Liz gave me great advice and guidance every step of the way, from our initial discussion to the closing of the transaction. Her knowledge of the Austin real estate market was very evident and contributed to my success in buying my first home. I will definitely recommend Liz to friends, family, and coworkers.

Liz has got to be, hands down, the best realtor in the country. We have bought and sold a number of houses and never have we had such amazing service as we have with Liz. Buying a home, especially from a distance, is never easy but Liz made it painless. She spent an entire day with us just to help us get to know the neighborhoods. She was always available and responsive. And she got us... it didn’t take her long to understand what we wanted (even when we didn't know what we wanted!). And once we were under contract her and Katie were an amazing support helping us get done everything we needed from a long way away. Liz sets a new standard for realtors and now that she has spoiled us we wouldn't work with anyone else.
Lisa & Elwyn — Jan 30, 2019
We have been friends with Liz for years and she has represented us in several real estate transactions. We continue to go back to Liz when we are selling or buying a house due to the fact that her ethics are strong and her depth of knowledge is broad in the Austin residential market. Liz was most helpful yet again in the recent sale of our house, discussing the price range that we should consider for listing our house in light of the local market at the time. We came to an agreement on the list price which, given the market, we all agreed would bring an offer relatively quickly. Liz was there at every step of the dealings. What a support. So glad that we were with such a competent realtor, always making us comfortable that we were in good hands. Thank you, Liz, for a job well done!
Philip & Auddie — Jan 30, 2019
Liz Newell made the first-time home buying process a breeze! No question or concern was left unanswered, and her professional opinion (which was coveted!) always landed perfectly. I felt comfortable the entire way through, and her genuine willingness to show me any property was greatly appreciated. My schedule can be a little crazy, but Liz always had time when I had time, and I am extremely grateful for her gracious attitude when I had questions and was uncertain about how to proceed. Buying a home can be stressful and emotional but Liz walked me through every step of it with joy and ease and I am so grateful!
Rita M. — Jan 30, 2019
Liz and her team were very hands-on during my house staging and showing processes, and all of their hard work paid off! in addition to their hard work, I am grateful for their professionalism and flexibility and I would welcome the opportunity to work with them again.
Mark C. — Jan 30, 2019
Without Liz there is no way we would have found our dream home. Liz's knowledge of the area and connections put us in a place to move fast and beat all the competition. She really listened to our needs as a family and what we were looking for. Thanks to Liz we were able to see a variety of properties before they even hit the market. We were always aware of new houses becoming available, and the process from initial need finding to closing on our dream home was stress-free with help and experience we needed at every stage. We really can't thank Liz and her team enough!
Rick & Brenna — Jan 30, 2019
My husband and I just finished the process of purchasing our first home. How lucky we were to have Liz Newell on our team and as our agent. Liz is extremely knowledgeable about Austin neighborhoods and the real estate market here- so much so that after our last day of looking, and after finding a few houses we liked but did not love, she reached back out and said there was a house we had to see. A few hours before we went to the airport and ONLY because of Liz's guidance, this final home turned out to be our dream home and we made an offer on the spot. The home was not yet listed, so without Liz's keen eye and active searching, we would have never found it. We are deeply grateful to her and thrilled we had her help to find our home. Her warmth, savvy, patience, and knowledge of the Austin real estate market proved to be tremendous assets to us as we navigated this whole process together. Thank you, Liz!
Noah & Caroline — Jan 30, 2019
Liz Newell exceeded our expectations on selling our townhouse. She was professional from the first time we met at the property until our closing. She told us she wanted to make it as easy as she could for us and she did just that. Liz walked us through the whole process and answered our questions along the way. Liz was excellent and we both enjoyed working with her.
Everett & Elaine — Jan 30, 2019
My husband and I have been investing in real estate in the Austin area since the 1990s. We have worked with many different real estate agents buying, selling, and leasing an array of properties. Never, in all these years, have we encountered the level of professionalism that we experienced from Liz and her team. They were extremely organized, communicated everything clearly and in a timely manner, and above all they took care of our property as if it were their own. We had all of our needs not only met, but anticipated down to the last detail. We will use Liz for all of our real estate needs from now on and will most definitely recommend her to all family and friends.
Jeff & Cecilia A. — Jan 30, 2019
Selling Process was explained and closely monitored start to finish. Any issues/concerns were promptly and completely dealt with. Initial assessment of property was thorough and professionally done. The assigning of value was explained and agreed @ the start. Any interface required was dealt with promptly and explained when necessary. Totally professional from end to end. Great experience.
Don & Sandra G. — Jan 30, 2019
My wife and I wanted to thank you for making the home buying experience a positive one. You communicated with us effectively and always thoroughly answered all of our questions in a timely manner. We appreciate you making the journey out to the Leander and Cedar Park area as we know this isn't an easy trip, especially during rush hour. Your network of people not only helped us get our loan, but also helped with small details relating to purchasing the home. We felt like you were always on our side, and always put our best interests first. Thank you for everything, and we will be sure to provide your information to any future home buyers.
Jeff & Halimo — Jan 30, 2019
When we started looking for a place in Austin in 2010 - two different friends suggested we use Liz Newell and told us how happy they were with her services. Liz helped us find our condo in West Lake Hills. She told us it would be quiet, practical and well located. It was! when it came time for us to sell and move this year - we didn't even think about talking to any one but Liz. The sale was fast, smooth and profitable. We highly recommend Liz Newell.
David and Cheryl P. — Jan 30, 2019
Liz represented us as both a buyer and a seller’s agent. Liz not only listened to what we wanted/needed in a new house but also helped us think about what would be important to our family as our children our children grew up and went from elementary school to high school. Liz did an excellent job of only showing us houses that met most if not all of our wants and needs. As we looked at houses and she got more feedback, Liz continued to refine what was most important for us in a new home. In the end Liz found a wonderful house that has been perfect for our family. Liz continued to give us excellent guidance from making an offer through closing. We were very worried about having to pay two mortgages waiting for our old house to sell. Liz gave us excellent advice on what we would need to do to sell our old house quickly. Liz’s advice was practical and cost effective. We acted on Liz’s recommendations with the result that the old house got lots of attention and sold fast. Following her guidance meant we never had to make two mortgage payments! We have recommended Liz to family, friends and business associates. Everyone who has used Liz, has thanked us for recommending her.

It is hard to believe that Liz Newell has been in the real estate business for almost 25 years because she has the energy and commitment of a newbie going after her first sale... that is, until she handles the transaction with the skill and aplomb that only comes with being a seasoned veteran. Liz was our agent on two home purchases and she made them enjoyable and easy to navigate. Liz knows the right people to call for every service and expects and therefore gets the best from each plumber, contractor, inspector, etc. Liz is always accessible, tuned-in, and patient with her clients. Even months and years after the sale, she is always ready to offer her time and advice. I can't imagine going through the real estate process with a better agent.
Lisa W. — Mar 02, 2016
My wife and I spent close to two years looking for a home in Austin prior to hiring Liz Newell as our agent. With the help of Liz’s commanding market knowledge, we were able to quickly narrow our search and ultimately found a home prior to its MLS at a price that we knew was below market. It was after execution of the contract, however, that Liz truly shined. Liz’s long standing relationships with pool, home, and septic system inspectors familiar with the neighborhood resulted in identification and quantification of every potential issue, and her negotiating skills ultimately resulted in a generous concession by the seller. Liz is an incredible person and a true professional, and I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a home in the Austin area.

Richard and I wanted to formally thank you for your excellent work as went through the home purchasing process. I know we were not the easiest clients, especially given the fact that we bought our home while we were in Europe. I also know that we would not have been comfortable making this kind of purchase overseas with any other agent. Your work ethic, attention to detail, meticulous follow through and persistence put my mind at ease as we worked through the close. Your knowledge of the greater Austin area and your ability to help us sort through what makes each area unique was crucial for helping us make the right decision. We never felt any pressure to move in one direction or another, but we certainly appreciated your honest opinions about the benefits and drawbacks of each area and home.

We will definitely be recommending you to friends, colleagues and family going forward – so look for some business from us!

Ronny and I placed our home on the market in Davenport Ranch and moved to Dallas. We were not able to attend to the home, but once a month. After six months on the market, we re-listed with Liz Newell. We were pleasantly surprised at how she took command from the start. She treated our home as if it were her own. Liz and her assistant, Katie, spent time in our house rearranging and making the house more inviting. They took accessories from Liz's home such as lamps and silver trays and placed them in strategic spots. She even bought plants for our screen porch and entry. When there was a freeze warning, she bought covers for the outside faucets and made sure the thermostat was adjusted. She constantly kept in contact with us, and relieved us from the anxiety of being in another city. Her knowledge of Davenport rivals no one and professionalism is impeccable. Liz went beyond just being our realtor, she also became our friend. I would highly recommend Liz to anyone.
Debbie & Ronny L. — Mar 02, 2016
Dear Liz, There’s a special talent in giving the perfect gift and you have it! This must also be part of the reason you’re the perfect person to whom one can entrust something as important as finding a home (especially a first home!). Your upbeat outlook, sharp smarts, and kindness made this an adventure rather than a chore and we will always be grateful.
Elynn R. — Mar 02, 2016
I just wanted to say thank you again for making the home buying process so smooth. I don't think it's possible for anyone to be more on top of it than you are - I knew that if I got the automated email and there was something worthwhile on it, I would have a text from you seconds later asking when I was free to see it! I think the best part of working with you was the relationships you built both with us and with the other realtors, who clearly wanted to work with you and put us on the inside track as a result. With your high level of personal touch and instant response time, you really made us feel like we were the only clients you had, when I know you are in high demand! As a first time home buyer, I also very much appreciate the time you took to thoroughly explain every part of the process and make sure that I understood what was happening.
Erin R. — Mar 02, 2016
If you're considering selling or buying a home...then please look no further than Liz Newell. Liz has the knowledge and experience to effectively make things happen. The professional photographer that Liz uses really made a difference in marketing our home too. There is no other realtor to consider when buying or selling your home. We sold our Lakeway home in two days. Thanks again!!!
Douglas H. — Mar 02, 2016
We would like to thank you, Liz, for your excellent work with the sale of our house. Not only was your advice spot on regarding the home staging but you went above and beyond with our meetings prior to putting it on the market as well as your depth of knowledge helped us every step of the way. It was obvious that you are very experienced, which was exactly what we needed. Our house sold within a day and the whole process was stress free. We also enjoyed working with Katie and it's obvious that you run a very good operation in your office. Thank you again.

My husband and I hired Liz to be our realtor to help us find our very first home. But she was way more than a "realtor." She was a friend, a support system, our advocate, a cheerleader. She went above and beyond for us. We ended up deciding to build a house. Once we selected the builder and lot, she could have been done. Afterall, she had done plenty by then. But she wasnt.. She went to our design appointments to help us select our upgrades, she saved all the emails from the builder and loan agent to make sure we didn't miss anything, she went to every single appointment we had with the loan officer and with the builder. Day or night she was always available to answer our questions. She made what could be a very confusing process for a first-time buyer, a smooth and almost easy process. She always gave 150%. She is amazing!
