Allison has worked with us off and on for several years after a couple of pump fakes on our side about what/when we wanted to become homeowners. From day one, she has been professional, prepared, understanding, flexible, and committed to making us happy at all costs. Allison brings a unique and incredibly advantageous experience and skills to the home buying (or selling) process. She’s a mom and homeowner, and she has been a residential real estate investor, she’s an award-winning Realtor, and her husband is a builder.

Allison’s approach to helping us was organized and thoughtful from start to finish. The beginning of our process was all about her getting to know us and our wants/needs. She listened and brought thoughtful, but not overbearing, perspective to finding a home we would love. After we had broad agreement on what we were looking for, Allison searched high and low exhausting all of her resources to find us every possible home to evaluate, including homes not yet on the market and in the process of being built. She stuck to our plan but also showed us options that were just a little different than we thought we wanted to make sure we had all the information.

We bid on multiple homes with Allison, and her approach to bidding was even more professional than her searching. She worked with us to make sure our offer was putting our absolute best foot forward, from lending and financing to thoughtful notes to the sellers, Allison left no possible positive left unturned. After the submittal of the offer, Allison worked tirelessly to make sure we had all the info from the seller rep and to stay on them to make sure we had every opportunity to make changes or express our interest in closing a deal.

We ultimately purchased a home that was 3/4 done when Allison showed it to us before it was listed. From the moment our offer was negotiated until well after we moved in, Allison was an incredible resource. She made sure we got to make some changes to the final build and helped us keep the builder accountable for giving us exactly what they promised. She’d done multiple deals on both the buy and sell-side with our builder, but we always knew whose side she was on during our process.

Post close; she’s stayed involved in the final touches, getting landscaping updates, fixing HVAC, etc. etc. how awesome she kept involved after she got paid! Allison was a model partner. We always felt like our best financial and living considerations were being accounted for. She protected us with her experience and guided us to an incredibly successful and satisfying experience. We couldn’t recommend her enough and will undoubtedly work with her again and push all our friends to do the same!

Allison is without question the most extraordinary Realtor. She's thoughtful, responsive, and cares for her clients. My wife and I can't stop raving about Allison. She is simply the best.

Allison Olson is fantastic. My husband and I were first-time home buyers relocating from California, and Allison came recommended to us by a friend from Austin. We could not be happier that we found her, because she made the experience of buying our first home so fun, exciting, and seamless. Allison is incredibly friendly, down to earth, and hard-working, showing us homes for hours on end some days to maximize our time when we were in town. We had never looked at homes seriously, and she was wonderful at asking us the right questions to help us zero in on what was most important to us, helping us to get clarity on our needs and wants. Allison also knows the city and all its neighborhoods inside and out, and she pointed us toward several areas that met our needs. And when we found our home, Allison was so helpful with every piece of the puzzle: making an offer, the inspection, the remote closing. Allison even had our home deep cleaned and the lawn cut before we moved in, and she is still always available to offer me referrals for painters or other professionals, or just to answer any questions that come up about the city. We could not feel more welcomed to Austin that we have by Allison, and we could not be happier that she helped us find and purchase our amazing home!

Our probate lawyer referred her Realtor, Allison Olson, to us when we wanted to sell my daughter's house. She had lots of good things to say about Allison, which all were true. Since we lived in Houston, she was very helpful in getting the needed documents signed over the internet. She is very friendly and enthusiastic. She is also very experienced and good at what she does. I would give her 12 stars out of 10. I would recommend Allison to anyone who wants to buy or sell a house in the Austin area.

Michael Taylor

We absolutely ADORE Allison. Allison is a top-notch Realtor. She has helped us purchase two homes in Austin, as well as sell one, and we wouldn’t want to work with anyone else. Allison goes above and beyond to help clients in any way she can. She made the entire process seamless. And while I know Allison has a ton of clients, she truly makes you feel like you are her only one. She really cares about her clients and helping them make the right decisions and get the best deal. Allison is a true advocate for her clients, and there were many nights she stayed up talking/working with us well past midnight! Not to mention, my children loved her. One time, Allison even drove our son to find a bathroom (and helped him!), while we were out of our house for a showing! Above and beyond. I truly missed Allison after we closed on our house. We highly recommend Allison Olson.

We worked with Allison Olson as our buyer’s agent. Right from the very beginning she was very prompt, up to date and professional. Allison was always available to chat and sometimes even as late as midnight. We enjoyed working with her, and it never felt dull and boring! We appreciate doing business with Allison and highly recommend her!

Allison is great. She is very attentive, responsive, and knowledgeable. This is the second purchase completed with Allison, and she was fantastic. I’ve used her previously in rental searches as well. Realty Austin is lucky to have her on its team. Thanks for all your help.

Carson Fisk

Allison has been an amazing Realtor, both in selling our current house and helping us find and close on a new one! I know she is super busy, but she always made us feel like we were her one and only client. She is incredibly responsive to both text and email and went above and beyond to meet inspectors, repair persons, and other folks at the house we purchased when we were unable to make those appointments. We cannot be happier with choosing Allison as our Realtor.

Allison couldn't have been more helpful throughout the entire process. She made herself available to answer questions at any time and we appreciated her honest opinions regarding the many tough choices we faced. She is obviously extremely knowledgeable. I really felt like we were working with a good friend. I will not hesitate to recommend her to any friends and family in the Austin area, and I am sure we will work with Allison again in the future.

Jack Turner

We have used Allison on our three last transactions. Allison is extremely professional and knowledgeable in her field. She was super helpful throughout the process and was always honest and upfront with us even when we dealt with tricky issues. She is a savvy negotiator and has always been able to achieve a result that we felt good about. One thing we love about Allison is her timeliness in response whether by text or phone. It always amazed us how fast she would get back to us even if we had a question come up during dinner time. She made us feel like we were her number ONE customers, 100% along the way of the process. We truly feel that Allison brings the best experience, knowledge, and professionalism to the real estate table and we look forward to using her again in the future!

Holly and Derek Brown

May 1 2018

We found Allison very attentive. She was up on every detail and was extremely helpful in inspections and walkthroughs. We felt very taken care of. Not being from Austin, we needed Allison's patient guidance to find the right area for us. She is very easy and enjoyable to be with and was very upbeat during our five-month journey to closing. We found Allison very knowledgeable about everything we needed to know. We never felt we had to speak with anyone else. Realty Austin is fortunate to have Allison on their team. We say this with this being our 11th house. We think she is the best agent we’ve had. While we don’t intend to buy another house, Allison would be our person to sell this one and find the next.

Mark and Pam Canales

March 1 2018

Allison is amazing. She not only helped us through every step of the process, but she also did it in an incredibly patient way (I ask a lot of questions), and she made recommendations that were always fabulous. For example, the lender Allison recommended was an incredible help to us, and the inspector was extremely thorough. We were referred to Allison by good friends of ours, and we knew that she was good at what she does, but we were impressed by her expertise and thankful to have her on our team. I would recommend Allison to anyone, and we would certainly work with her again in the future.

Josh Bailey

February 1 2018

We love Allison. This is our 5th house transaction with her, so obviously we think she is fabulous. Allison is on top of everything and always so easy to work with. I recommend her to anyone I know who is looking for a Realtor. I also have several friends that are Realtors and are good ones, but Allison is the person whose judgment I trust.

Becky Layne

We are beyond ecstatic with our new home! Allison was so amazing. She had to coordinate our schedule from Dallas. It was no easy task, and she accomplished everything with great ease and calmness! We saw so many different homes, and she allowed us the freedom and flexibility to adapt to what we thought our needs were. In other words, she never was frustrated or put out by our own indecision, etc. I really feel like she could be an expert in helping transfers Into the Austin area!! In a nutshell, we love Allison! She is professional, thorough and so very thoughtful!

Tibet Pollard

I cannot sufficiently express my admiration for Allison's services. Allison has been simply superb. She knows the business of buying and selling houses probably better than most other Realtors in Austin. She seems to know every detail and every potential pitfall. Allison knows how houses are built, from builders to materials. She is kind, thoughtful, prompt. Her clients are extraordinarily lucky to have her services. I have told my daughter several times that we are grateful that she referred us to Allison.

John Dahmus

May 1 2017

We have been impressed with Allison’s work helping us buy a new home and preparing to sell our existing one. She has been knowledgeable, professional, thorough and effective. She helped us find a good new home and has done great work helping us in the process of selling our existing home.

Doug Neuse

February 1 2017

I really have to say that Allison exceeded our best hopes for a realtor. I've known Allison for years and worked with her previously before she got into real estate. I knew that when the time came for us to buy a house, Allison would be my only choice. What I didn't know is the level of expertise we would receive.

Allison is a consummate professional. Her attention to detail is astounding. We were never left wondering what to do next. I know we couldn't be her only client, but it never felt like we were competing to get her attention on any minor detail. I'm blown away by the level of customer service she provided.

I would absolutely recommend Allison Olson to anyone that is looking for a realtor. She may be in the Platinum Top 50 in real estate agents, but she's number one in our book.

Keith & Sheila Harris

January 1 2017

Allison represented us absolutely beautifully. She assisted us with both the sale or our home and the purchase of a new one. She managed details and so many showings, that I’m sure she doesn’t want to count, with tremendous ease and confidence. She was supremely reliable and always available. Truth be told, I don’t know how she could have done anything better. It was white glove treatment all the way. We couldn’t be happier.

Ryan Ford

December 1 2016

Allison Olson was an outstanding realtor. She has helped us buy two houses and sell one house, and I have been pleased with every experience. She is brilliant, prompt in her responses and has an excellent understanding of the Austin market. She was pleasant to work with and made a difficult process seem easy.

Julie Sprunt

December 1 2016

My husband, Richard, and I could not recommend Allison highly enough. As first time buyers, we had no idea what we were doing and she patiently held our hand throughout the process (without making us feel completely incompetent!). She's extremely diligent and always prioritized our best interest, from pointing out areas that could hurt resale value to noting any factors that may limit potential renovations. Not only is she incredibly thorough, she's also extremely kind and patient. We must have viewed 30+ houses together and she gave every viewing her full attention, even when she probably knew it wasn't a serious contender. Then once we went under contract, she fought many battles for us and we were especially grateful for her loyalty and expertise. Whenever I had the opportunity to meet anyone from the industry (whether a seller's agent or even our home inspector), it was always immediately clear how well regarded Allison is. With her friendly, positive nature and her unwavering sense of professionalism, she has definitely earned her wonderful reputation. She is truly skilled at her job and we're so thankful for the opportunity to work with her.

I've bought and sold many properties so unfortunately, I've experienced lots of horrible realtors. If you ask the people close to me what my opinion is of "realtors" they would quickly tell you and it's not good... I have complained for years! In Austin, I bought and sold property with a different broker in Spanish oaks and talked to them about buying in the Austonian... I've worked with 3 different realtors from there... they were all terrible and I'm being nice when I say that.

I have to say, Allison has by far been my BEST experience ever... she is in a class of her own. I really didn't think realtors like her existed... I'm not joking!! If she is not already super successful she will be soon! The comps she gave me were spot on and then she surprised me by wanting to list higher then what I would have done. Allison's communication was fantastic (ALWAYS available), her advice with which buyer to take was excellent and again spot on. In the next year or two, I plan on buying a second home in Austin and I've already told my wife who we are using.

Steve Guinn

Allison was professional, caring and looking out for my best interest! She was great at explaining the process throughout my home search, from the viewings, to making an offer and to the closing day. Years of experience have helped her know the market inside and out.

We used Realty Austin and Allison Olson. Allison was on top of all the details, gave great advice, and the perfect mix of sunshine and tough negotiator. She advocated well for us and got multiple offers in hours.

We have had a wonderful experience working with Allison. She is professional, knowledgeable and a pleasure to be around! We will definitely be recommending her to friends and family.

Lindsey Goss

March 1 2016

We loved working with Allison Olson! As first-time home buyers, we were excited and nervous about this next step in our lives. Allison excelled not only as a top-notch real estate agent but also as a guide through this daunting process. Each time we toured a house, Allison pointed out things we might not have noticed or known to look out for, as well as items we might want to consider in our new home. We would recommend Allison to all of our family and friends, among whom we now proudly count Allison.

Amber Downing, Google+ Review

March 1 2016

Allison was great to work with! We loved her expertise in the area where we purchased our home which was super helpful. She responded to our texts, emails and requests very quickly which is needed in the Austin housing market; Allison helped us buy our home and sell our current home which all occurred in the matter of 1 week - crazy I know, but she made it happen! I would highly recommend Allison to our friends and family.

Katie Kaufman

January 1 2016

There are a lot of people moonlighting as real estate agents out there, trying to cash in on Austin's hot real estate market but if you're looking for a professional, Allison Olson is the real deal! She helped me sell a house in record time and was there every step of the way, answering my questions and keeping me updated day and night. The perfect marriage of a sharp business sense and an impeccable bedside manner. She truly understands the psychology between buyers and sellers and has a knack for putting everybody at ease by doing her job with integrity and I'm looking forward to working with her again in the future.

Allison is one of the most wonderful, honest, sincere person we have ever met. I can't find the right words to express my appreciation for Allison. She is the best, a great asset to Realty Austin.

Adrien Georgakopoulos

October 1 2015

First of all, Allison is by far one of the most patient people I know!

We started our home buying process almost exactly 1 year ago, and from the beginning to the end, I can not tell you how many homes we saw.

She met me to see houses at all times during the day to accommodate my schedule, on the weekends, and even last minute requests where she met me within 20 minutes to show me houses that I wanted to see.

She was always incredibly responsive in answering my emails, text messages, and phone calls, and she made me feel like I was her only client, as she dedicated so much time and energy to our search for the perfect home for us.

Allison is of course not only exceptionally professional, but she is also amazingly knowledgeable of the real estate industry. She walked us through the contract line item by line item when we bought our home, as well as when we sold our home. She explained everything to us in detail, and made an intimidating document understandable for us.

Lastly, Allison genuinely cares about her clients, and it definitely shows. She never once made us feel like we were taking too long in finding “the perfect house” for us. She was tremendously compassionate and considerate, which put us at ease with the entire process. In fact, there were countless times that I thought we would never find the right house, and she told me not to settle on a house that I didn’t like, because the right one would come along. (Again, she is patient beyond belief.)

She was there for us at both of our closings, and even presented us with gifts at each one. Her kindness and generosity, thoughtfulness, and continuous effort she put forth made our experience extremely pleasant.

Allison absolutely exceeded our expectations, I would highly recommend her, and Realty Austin is very fortunate to have her represent the company.

Shannon Cannon

We couldn't be happier with the service received from Allison Olson. She exceeded all of our expectations with her outstanding service and deep knowledge of the Austin market. We can not emphasize this enough, Allison was simply amazing - conscientious, thorough, mathematically sound, and highly responsive. We couldn't have chosen a better realtor to help us find our first home. Friends referred her to us and now we are referring her to our friends because she is the best.

Mariana Seif

Our agent, Allison Olson, stuck with us for nearly 3 years with unwavering patience, expertise, and professionalism. She understood our unique needs and thoughtfully suggested various options. It took longer to find the right property than we anticipated but the process could not have been better. Great customer experiences are hard to come by these days -- but that is exactly what we received with Allison.

Mark P., Yelp Review

June 1 2015

Our agent, Allison Olson, is hands down the BEST realtor in Austin-maybe in the entire country! Honestly though, we had the pleasure of working with her when we were buying our first home in 2012. She was kind and patient, and made the entire process a ton of fun. After we bought our first home we were able to contact her every so often (let's be honest-it was quite often....) for advice on home owning topics and even suggestions on renovations. She put us into contact with our fabulous contractor and has really been a most positive part of our lives while living here in Austin. When we decided to move to Seattle this year, we knew who we had to have to help us sell our condo: Allison. Of course she was more than willing to work with us again! She was detail orientated and really helped us get the best offer for our place. She is a delight to work with-she makes everything seem seamless and simple. She is always available for questions or concerns and she is VERY responsive. We have LOVED working with Allison and would recommend her and Realty Austin to anyone!

Rachel M., Yelp Review

We really enjoyed working with Allison while searching for a home in Austin. She was very easy to work with, informative, and shared honest and professional advice with us through out the process. She is dedicated, diligent, and thorough. We appreciate the time she carved out of her schedule to work with us, sometimes at a moment's notice when a new home came on the market. We would definitely recommend her in the future to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.

Ryan and Anna Vassar

I can't say enough about how wonderful Allison is to work with. She is so smart, sweet, thoughtful and professional. She went above and beyond to my needs. I actually did refer her to a friend and they are meeting today.

Sharon Crisp

March 1 2015

Allison brilliantly navigated my wife and I through multiple bids during our buying process to get exactly the golf course home we envisioned for significantly less than the seller's list price. Additionally, she was able to sell our existing home in less than 10 days on the market for more than our listing price.

We couldn't be happier with Allison's attention to the details throughout the entire process. She kept us informed via, phone, email, text and in person at hours well beyond standard office business hours on a daily basis.

We have already recommended her to friends and would not hesitate for Allison to lead us in our future real estate needs.

Cameron & Julie Freeman

December 1 2014

If you're reading this, it's probably because you haven't decided on a realtor yet. It's a very important decision, especially in Austin, so I will highly recommend Allison Olson.

This is my second review for Allison Olson, MY realtor.

Allison helped me buy my first home in 2008, and in late 2014, she helped me sell the exact same property! There was no way I was using anyone else except Allison to help me sell my condo, I trust her too much.

Me and my wife were paying two mortgages a month, one for our new home, and one for my condo, which was a huge strain on our finances, so I needed to sell the condo fast. Allison knew this full well, so when it was ready to sell, she had a buyer BEFORE IT WENT TO MARKET!!!!!! That's right, before it even went to MLS, she tapper her network and had me an offer, at full asking price, in a day or two. It doesn't get better than that.

I hired Allison (again) because I knew that she would take care of everything with minimal effort on my part, which is exactly what I needed. Selling a house is complicated, there's bushels of forms to fill out, papers to file, and tons of steps most of us never even know about. All I want to know, is that business is being taken care of and my best interest is being looked after while I live my life, and that's exactly what I got with Allison: a care free experience. Everything was easy, really easy.

Allison and her team have the best client communication of anyone I've worked with in a long time, which is incredibly important when you're selling a home. If I had a question about some paperwork, or just a random inquiry, she was always very responsive. I know wasn't her only client during this period, but somehow, she managed to make me feel like I was her only one. That's huge.

One of the biggest things I appreciated was her honest assessment of my condo and what I needed to do to get it ready to sell. It needed a couple of minor touch ups and repairs, and she helped me prioritize what needed to get done and what wasn't really a big deal, and in the end, I got exactly the amount that I wanted for it.

I couldn't be happier with Allison and how she helped me sell my condo. It was easy, profitable and easy.

Did I mention easy?

woody h., Yelp Review

This is the second home I have bought with Allison and the entire process went great. The last place was a new construction, free standing condo and this place is an older, smaller attached condo. Allison was great in looking for this different type of home. As we looked at places, she pointed out items that were unique, such as efficiency improvements or things that could be an issue such as poor exterior drainage.

She was very responsive when I found the right place. It was on the market Saturday morning, we visited it on Sunday and the offer was in on Monday morning. She also helped draft an offer that the sellers found so amenable that they accepted my offer even though it was not the highest offer. She was very helpful throughout the entire option period and through closing.

I will definitely recommended Allison and plan on using her again for my next home purchase!


November 1 2014

My husband and I were referred to Allison by my husband's co-worker. We started our search while we still lived in Chicago and from the very start of our search, Allison exceeded our expectations. We felt that she was always friendly, honest and knowledgeable. Her statistical data and knowledge that she gathered and provided for us of the areas we were interested in was helpful in guiding us to our decision. On many occasions she went over and beyond what we expected. Honestly, I could go on and on about her! Allison was a pleasure to work with and I will not hesitate to share her name!

Holly and Joel Hinkhouse

Allison was such an amazing asset in what could have been a very difficult experience. In early October we relocated to Austin with our then 2 month old child. We really wanted to buy a house in just two days. This obviously could have been a very stressful time.

Instead, Allison's great communication and organizational skills made the process essentially stress-free. She is professional and friendly. She understands the positive and negatives of all the Austin neighborhoods. She has a ton of amazing contacts. Need someone who specializes in floors? Mortar? Inspections? Locksmith? She has awesome references for everyone. Every time we used someone she recommended, we have loved the service.

I think one of Allison's best qualities as a realtor is her ability to anticipate issues and requests before you can even ask for her assistance. Every time we received an update from the seller's realtor, home inspector, roof inspector, etc. she responded within the hour with her analysis and recommendations. We never had to ask her for anything - she was already on top of it. She came to every single appointment we had with inspectors at the house and went alone to ones we couldn't attend. She helped us even after closing with different little issues that came up.

We really felt she put our interests first. She never rushed us into any decisions. We never felt any pressure from her. She is very honest and thorough when explaining the positives and negatives in every situation. I would definitely recommend working with Allison, and we would definitely use her again. We love Allison and our new home! Thank you!

We have now bought and sold homes three times with Allison Olson, Realty Austin. She is THE BEST in town and Realty Austin made it very easy and fun to search for new homes in our area. Realty Austin has THE go-to site for searching properties throughout Austin, and the service level they provide is second to none. Personally, Allison is the only realtor we will ever work with - she is trustworthy, thoughtful and diligent in her work and dedication to helping her clients both sell their current home and find the perfect new home!

Wow, where do I begin? Allison Olson helped us find our first house here in Texas back in 2006. Allison and I clicked immediately and were able with just a look between us know our thoughts on the many properties we looked at. When it came to our next move to a smaller house this year, Allison, was of course by my side. She is great at understanding what her clients are looking for. Allison is always there for any concerns, questions or just plain support. My family and I would follow Allison anywhere. She is irreplaceable.

Allison Olson was top notch. Smart, creative and does her homework. She knows the market as well as her clients needs. Amazingly quick to respond. She is the best realtor I have ever worked with, and there have been quite a few. Not to mention, she is delightful company.

Kenny Baldwin, Facebook Review

July 1 2014

I was recently faced with a very difficult situation - both emotionally and logistically, but Allison Olson made the sale of my deceased brother's house painless. Quick background - I live in Baltimore, MD and my brother's house is in Austin. He died without a will or power of attorney, leaving me with a mess. Not understanding the housing market in Austin, I was ready to give the house to the bank. Then one of my brother's friends recommended Allison Olson. Allison took ownership, worked closely with my lawyer and went above and beyond during the last month of her pregnancy!!! She helped with arranging to have locks changed, maid service, junk removal, furniture consignment. Within two months from meeting Allison, we had the house sold (for higher than listed) and the contract signed. Although the baby was born a week before settlement, Allison stayed on track and never missed a beat. She is extremely responsive and efficient, and knows how to get things done. I would highly recommend her and really could not have done this without her. She served as a guide, educator, and most importantly, a partner. She actually should be rated 10 stars!!!

We were extremely delighted with Allison as our buyer¹s representative.  She was extremely knowledgeable, made herself available, was quick to respond, was very resourceful and was overall a perfect fit for our needs.  We would without a doubt refer Allison to anyone we know looking for an agent and look forward to maintaining a relationship with for many years to come.

Allison Olson has helped me in real estate matters for almost 8 years. She was instrumental in helping me buy my first house in 2006. She also helped us last year, as a favor, find a rental home, spending significant time with us tracking down the right house in a ridiculously crazy rental market. We definitely felt for her when the house we ended up finding was off of MLS – as we believed she went above and beyond for us in the process. We were excited to start the house search process with Allison this year, and she was wonderful once again. She spent time previewing homes we might be interested in to make sure they met our needs. She provided honest opinions when she believed homes were overpriced, or perhaps needed more work than we were likely wanting to put in. She also let us know when we were looking at a house that would move quickly so that we wouldn’t miss an opportunity should we want to take it. Her predictions on how long a house would be available were very accurate.

When we were finally ready to write a contract, Allison walked us through all of our available options, as it was definitely going to be a multi-offer situation. I believe that her guidance helped us write the perfect offer to get the house we wanted. During the closing process, Allison was on point in getting all of the repair negotiations and other requests quickly attended to. She assisted in the inspection process, helping us understand what issues might be of greater concern. Her negotiation manner with sellers’ agent was strong, but non-confrontational, allowing us to smoothly work through any matters with the sellers throughout the process. We are excited about our new home, and couldn’t have gotten it without Allison. We definitely would recommend her to friends, and in the event we ever decide to move again, would hope she’d be available again.

I can't say enough wonderful things about Allison Olson. She absolutely went above and beyond for my husband and I. Since we had been working with her for almost a year, it would be a short novel explaining everything she did did help us.

We will definitely recommend Realty Austin and Allison for real estate needs.

Allison Olson did an amazing job helping to sell our house. As first time sellers that are also going through a marriage separation she did a great job of communicating with both of us fairly and individually.

She was always responsive to questions and seemed very pro active. Maybe most importantly we sold for over 5k our asking price! I would definitely recommend her to others.

Allison was such a pleasure to work with.  She made the entire process of selling a home seem easy.  She was always available to answer questions and would go by the house to make sure everything was in order before showings.  Her technology (pictures and online marketing) was exceptional.

Our experience with Realty Austin and Allison Olson was fantastic. Allison was very efficient in giving us information on selling our home and being realistic with price. When we had questions she answered in a timely manner and in a way we could understand. She sold our home in less than two weeks! She then immediately helped us find the perfect piece of land for our family. We highly recommend using Allison Olson and Realty Austin because of their professionalism and sense of great customer service. We recommend y'all to all our friends and family.  Thanks Allison for helping our family find the perfect home.

Allison Olsen was the best professional Realtor we have ever worked with. Her personal attention and her follow through on every detail made our move to Austin a pleasure. She is extremely knowledgable about the real estate market and process of buying a home in Austin, and worked tirelessly to ensure that we found a home to match our desires and then complete the deal successfully. Even when our home buying interfered with her family vacation, she continued to share her time and expertise. We have participated in numerous home buying experiences and worked with experienced Realtors over our careers. None have been as competent and personalized the experience as much as Allison. We would recommend her highly to anyone. It is a pleasure to recognize her excellence.

Allison was wonderful in helping my family relocate and find our house. We highly recommend her; she had been the best and most personable agent we have worked with!

Stacy Ruse

Allison Olson was so wonderful. I recommend her to all. She made every detail of selling and buying seem easy! She worked so hard for us and we really appreciate her!

Allison Burden Johnson, Facebook Review

Two words -- Allison Olson. My husband and I had the best realtor experience of our lives with Allison (through five crazy months while we sold our house in Dallas and moved here). She is a consummate professional, patient, considerate, always willing/ready to help and a seriously fun chick to be around. It was our first experience with the Austin market and she helped us navigate its perilous waters like an old pro. Would we recommend her? Try and stop us.

Suzanne Skidgel Eisenhauer, Facebook Review

I am a real estate lawyer and investor, so I have dealt with a lot of Realtors in my time, and Allison Olson is the best real estate agent I have ever seen.  From the moment my wife and I asked her to help us buy our new home, Allison handled every single facet of the search, contract, inspection, financing, and closing process with a kind of inspired efficiency and grace that we found truly remarkable. It is increasingly rare these days for anyone to exceed your expectations, but that is exactly what Allison did. My wife and I still can't believe how amazing she was and how much she helped us. We will always call on Allison whenever we need a Realtor, and we will always recommend Allison to anyone else looking to buy or sell a house. We're sure that there are a lot of good real estate agents in Austin, but we also know that none of them as good as Allison Olson.

Drew & Jennifer Shirley

Allison put a lot of time and effort into helping me find the right place. First she listened to my wants and needs, then she found a place that met them and was within my budget. She's smart, nice, honest and hard-working. What else could you ask for? I recommended her to my best friend when he moved to Austin, and as expected, she helped his family find a great home. I wouldn't dream of using anyone else.

Kurt Liptak

Allison helped turn our dream of owning a home into a reality, and she made it an enjoyable process! Thanks to her dedication and expertise, we bought the house that was our first choice. She was there for us every step of the way... even coming over to review paperwork late at night so that we could get the offer in as quickly as possible. Having known Allison personally for years, we can attest to her honesty and integrity as a friend. She is no different as a professional. We knew that we could trust Allison to take care of us and she did not disappoint!

Blake & Valentina Pollard

By now, Allison Olson could be considered an honorary member of my family! She helped my sister purchase her first home in Crestview, she helped my parents find their house up North, and she helped me find my first home in South Austin. We even still keep in touch!  Allison made me feel like buying my first home truly was my decision (and an easy one at that). On top of being a Realtor, she also comes across as an invaluable resource. She will point out potential issues you may not have thought about. She takes all of your interests into consideration and is upfront in telling you what she thinks, and leads you through the home-buying process so smoothly… you wonder at closing why it was so easy.  Anytime I know someone looking to buy or sell, I recommend Allison. She's professional, does not waste your time, and always puts your interests first. I will definitely consider using her for my next home purchase!

Kristin Bender

Allison helped us with our first home purchase. I couldn't have asked for more. She educated us on the Austin neighborhoods and helped us find the perfect starter location.  As a first time home buyer, there were of course fears throughout the process. Allison did a fantastic job answering all of my questions and eliminating those fears. Allison actually made the process fun for us. Closing was a breeze. I do not hesitate referring Allison to my friends and look forward to my next home search with her in the future.

Scott & Kathleen Parks

After buying and selling homes for decades, I'm the expert to tell you that Allison is superior as a Realtor. Her genuine care for clients and attention to detail makes the entire process so much easier. Allison provides help that you don't even know you need. I've never had a Realtor handle so many details for me. Plus you can always count on Allison to be that perfect combination of great negotiator and adviser plus maintain a great attitude and sense of humor at all times. She was very patient with us as we wavered between buying a loft downtown or finding a house in the suburbs. She showed us many terrific listings in both categories. When we finally decided on the right place, Allison was very thorough in making sure all contracts, inspections, etc. were handled correctly. We will definitely contact Allison the next time we decide to buy or sell. I would recommend her to anyone.

Victoria and Kevin Schaffer, Southwest Austin

Thanks to Allison's expertise and guidance, I was able to purchase a great home in an ideal location within my price range. Allison was generous, perceptive, and patient in showing me potential properties and in leading me through the complexities of purchasing a first home. She brought warmth, reassurance, and goodwill to an otherwise daunting task and was a joy to work with every step of the way.

Margaret Bigger, Tarrytown

Allison Olson is honest, highly intelligent and extremely effective. I've worked with her four times; buying twice and selling twice. She always put my family's best interest first. When we were buying, Allison never wasted our time. She has a very efficient search system so we knew everything that was out there based on the parameters we set. She can walk in a house and spot trouble long before you pay an inspector. Details you'd never notice, Allison will point out and make sure you consider. We paid just about what she predicted both times. When we were selling, she gave detailed information about the neighboring homes and recommended a price point. Once we went with her number, once we didn't. She treated both sales exactly the same; a true professional. We sold both homes at a price we were very happy with. Since Allison found us our dream home, I'm not sure we'll ever move. But I know if we start looking, Allison Olson is the only Realtor we would consider.

The Harper Family. Repeat clients: first in Central Austin and now in Great Hills

Allison worked diligently to help us find the perfect house. It was our first home purchase, and even though we were in unfamiliar territory, Allison helped us feel comfortable and knowledgeable every step of the way. She was always there to negotiate on our behalf, and to present us with all of our options. Her tireless efforts made finding a home really enjoyable.

Susan and Danny Nold, Repeat clients: first in Central Austin and now Westlake

Allison Olson is a wonderful agent! My husband and I have had the pleasure of working with her twice in the buying and selling of our home, and both times she made the transactions seamless with her patient diligence and professional guidance. Allison translates the process in a way that her clients completely understand the answers to whatever questions--however small--they have, and is great about keeping everything on track with reminders about next steps to work towards a smooth finish. Her warm and personable demeanor connects well with other agents, making the business part of the sale less cold, while also keeping her clients' best interests her number one priority. Allison is professional in every sense of the word, and her clients are in excellent, capable hands with her. Highly recommend!
