"I cannot recommend Tracey Guttes highly enough! She has a broad and deep understanding of the local real estate market. She used her relationship with other realtors and builders to share properties that were coming soon to market. She gave me honest and insightful critiques of each property we looked at - and we looked at a lot of houses! She led me through the process with kindness and patience, expertly answering every one of my questions. After over five months of searching she helped me find the perfect home for my family, and then negotiated a final sales price below asking price. I believe it would be impossible to find a better, more qualified agent!"
"I don't even know where to begin with this recommendation. Tracey is an absolute GEM of an agent. I found her through another listing she had in the Homestead area of Bee Cave. I was in the beginning stages of relocating from California to the Austin area and didn't even know what to do, where to begin and who to work with. Tracey not only has the extensive knowledge of the Austin area, but she knows what it takes to relocate from our of state. This was invaluable to my family. She generously took a weekend of her time to accommodate multiple showings in the Bee Cave area. We didn't find "the dream home" that visit but Tracey kept in touch with us the entire time of selling our home in California. And not in a "I want your business" type of way; she was genuinely a friend reaching out and keeping us in loop on the market in Bee Cave. When the stars finally aligned, our house sold in CA and the perfect home popped up on the market in Dripping Springs, she basically dropped everything to assist in a super quick inspection and close. Being in CA during this entire process, she totally stepped in to help with EVERYTHING on our behalf. I can't say enough about her and I hope that you choose Tracey to help with your real estate needs. I am thrilled that being new to the area I already have a friend in Tracey!"
"Ah, where to begin other than this is your gal if you are looking for a dependable, on the ball, superb with communication and very knowledgeable agent. My family and I just relocated to the Austin from, you guessed it, California, and started this process back in late February. Tracey had her work cut out for her because we had a pretty specific checklist and neighborhoods that we were interested in... Let me back up, when I first started I knew nothing about the Austin area and from the very start she took her time to show me around, and shared her extensive knowledge about all the different pockets surrounding Austin. In spite of being in another state during this process, she made it as painless as it could have been, and even skyped listings she previewed for us. She even saved us from buying a money pit which turned up all sorts of problems during the inspection and as per her advice, we backed out of the deal. At the time we were devastated, but as she kept reminding us, everything happens out for a reason. We know this was absolutely the right decision and we are so thankful for her willingness to give us her honest opinion which didn't make her job any easier. I should also mention that we knew nothing about propane and septic systems so she guided us through all of that fun stuff, too. Tracey Guttes is an A+++ agent."
"After we decided to move to Texas from California, we needed a realtor we could rely on to understand our family's needs and help us navigate a new area from a distance. We first met Tracey when visiting Austin and requested to see a home she was listing. She was immediately responsive and scheduled a showing around our schedule while we were in town. While the house was not for us, we were so impressed by Tracey's responsiveness, knowledge, and understanding of our circumstances that we asked her if she could be our realtor for our purchase. It was truly the best decision we ever could have made in this process, which took several months and had countless roadblocks along the way (such as our California home taking longer to sell than expected, inspection issues on the first house we made an offer on, etc.) She navigated each and every bump with poise and was instrumental in helping us keep our nerves and emotions in check through what turned out to be a much more challenging process than we ever imagined. At every step of the way, Tracey gave us her honest opinion, and never once tried to push us in any direction or try to "sell" us on a house. She truly understood our needs and made sure they were all met. We ended up in our dream home that we plan to live in for decades raising our three children. Without a doubt, we could not have done this without her, and she has made us into a forever client (and referral source). Seriously, if you are buying or selling a home, and you're reading this review, you can look no further. Tracey is the best, period."
"Tracey is the ultimate professional! She's easy to work with and is always knowledgable about rules, laws, and paperwork. She is a treasure - I highly recommend her for any real estate need you may have. "
"Tracey was excellent to work with. I was an out of state buyer and her experience and knowledge of the area I was looking in was instrumental in me finding the right home for us. She is very dedicated to her clients and spent lots of time showing me not only homes but the surrounding area of the neighborhoods. I would highly recommend Tracey to help you find your perfect home too."
"Tracey is incredible! She helped us acquire our property in 2017 and just recently assisted us in selling. We currently reside out of Texas and she made this process so smooth (and dare I say enjoyable), even out of state. She truly went above and beyond to get our property sold. If you need a realtor in the Austin area she will NOT disappoint! :)"
"We bought our house with Tracey and sold it with her a few years later. Both times we were impressed with her knowledge, her communication, and her kindness. She made a huge process feel as easy as possible! We met other agents along the way and none compared to her- Tracey is truly the best!"
"We worked with Tracey when buying our new home and selling our current home. She is an incredible person to have on your team! She is very knowledgeable, always available to answer questions, intelligent, and professional. We never once felt like we were being 'pressured' into a negotiation or situation where we were not comfortable. Tracey is the kind of real estate agent where you feel like she's got your best interests at heart and working for YOU, not just herself. I highly recommend her!"
