REALTOR®

GRI

Amy is a GRI-certified professional REALTOR® with over a decade of experience in sales, marketing and project management, and a passion for modern, sustainable design.

Prior to joining Realty Austin, Amy directed sales and marketing for SOL Austin, a community of modern, 4-5 Star Austin Energy Green and net-zero capable homes in East Austin and Celadon New Town, a New Urban community of 100 residential and 50 commercial spaces in West Michigan.

Amy’s experience selling development projects inspired her to co-open Austin Modern Homes, a full-service design + build firm focused on architecturally significant, green built residences in trendsetting and up-and-coming areas of Austin. She specializes in helping clients with the entire process of finding land, designing/choosing a home plan and building a home.

Though her main focus in recent years has been on new construction, she has never stopped listing and selling existing homes. Amy is recognized for "no surprise closes," meaning all aspects of the real estate selling/purchasing process are thoroughly completed prior to close. Her main strengths are relationship building, negotiations and a proactive vs. reactive approach to helping people buy or sell homes.

My husband and I worked with Amy Bernhard to purchase our first home, and we couldn't have been more pleased! She guided us through the process in a fun easygoing yet professional manner. She was quick to respond to our many questions/concerns and was a great resource for remodeling ideas. We looked forward to meeting with her to check out listed properties. When we finally found "the one," Amy worked at lighting speed to contact the seller and begin negotiations. We would definitely recommend Amy to anyone looking to buy a home in Austin!

I'm sure the other Amy's are good, but none compare to Amy Bernhard. She was an absolute pleasure to work with. I got in touch with Amy a few years back exploring some investment property and unfortunately, couldn't link up on anything. Then about 6 months ago my wife and I decided to look for our first primary residence purchase. Amy Bernhard made the process so incredibly simple, I couldn't possibly do her justice in this review. Long story short, we had lots of poor communication with the seller and Amy handled it like a true pro keeping my wife's nerves at ease and getting the process moving along nicely. Can't wait to work with again, on any type of purchase - primary residence or investment properties. No one knows the market better.

Amy Bernhard of Realty Austin is THE epitome of the perfect realtor. You will literally have nothing to worry about. Amy is timely, diligent, resourceful, a stickler for every detail, and the ultimate communicator. This recent purchase is the third time I've used Amy as my realtor (2x buying and 1x selling) and she somehow keeps exceeding my expectations. Thank you for being awesome and making everything easy, Amy!

Amy Bernhard was an absolute pleasure to work with. She was flexible, knowledgeable, worked faster than we could have possibly expected, and was also a lot of fun (our favorite part). She walked us through every step of buying our first home and really advocated for us. I highly recommend Amy and hope to work with her again some day!

We were very happy with Amy. She was patient with us and helpful and prompt when we had issues or questions. I'd recommend her to any of my friends, she's a good person to have on your team!

My experience with Amy was amazing! Without a doubt, my expectations were exceeded. Amy made sure I felt listened to, protected, and gave me a voice in the crazy world of Austin real estate. Her service went above and beyond, and I wouldn't hesitate referring her to everyone I know. In fact, I will likely be purchasing more real estate in the future, and I will certainly look to Amy to represent me again.

Amy was excellent in every way. Very pleased.

To say that we were overwhelmed by the buying experience would be an understatement. While our situation was probably not unique, it did present Amy with a number of challenges. Amy took the time to understand what was really important to us and tailored her activity to those needs. Once we could clearly articulate what we wanted, it took Amy no time to narrow down our choices and find the right property for us.

Probably our best tribute to Amy is trusting her to proceed with the purchase of our home without being in town to look at the property. We can’t wait to to see the place when we return at the end of the month. Amy handled all the paperwork associated with the transaction remotely with ease. The hardest thing we had to do - aside from reading everything, was drive to a FedEx drop box to return the closing documents and stop by a branch to arrange a money transfer.

We will unabashedly sing Amy’s praises to everyone we know looking to buy or sell a home.

Realty Austin has a great employee.

Our thanks to Amy and Realty Austin for a truly great experience.

Our experience working with Amy was phenomenal. We were referred to Amy through one of my wife's friends. She began with a very detailed overview of Realty Austin, the process that she would proceed with, and some initial research that she had done. She was always prompt in replying to messages and readily available to show us properties. She helped to make both transactions go very smoothly and on time. She was especially helpful in negotiating the sale of our home and through some dynamics that occurred with the buyer. I was also very impressed with the mortgage broker recommendation that she made. We will and have already recommended Amy to future prospective clients.

We are very grateful to the high quality of service provided to us by Amy Bernhard. She was very professional, personable, and was with us every step of the process, from beginning to looking for a house to the final closing. Amy guided us with accurate analysis of the real estate values of the various parts of Austin, advised us on offers, and her advises were always correct. She persistently showed us many homes until we found one that we really liked, and helped us to get that house. Thank you Amy for your wonderful service to us!

My husband Mark and I actually met Amy over 2 years ago. She graciously showed us some properties in East Austin even while knowing that we were in the process of trying to place a contract of our own on another property. We ended up buying our own property in East Austin and spending months renovating it as a rental house and all the while Amy was quietly and kindly present in the background, continuing to send us regular emails about properties that fit our criteria. So a few months ago when we unexpectedly received some funds with which to purchase a second property, I immediately turned to Amy’s most recent email. Two days later Amy showed us one of those properties, and within hours we decided to place a contract. We closed earlier this week, and we’re using Amy to help us find a tenant.

In our view (and especially given our rather outside-the-norm extended situation), Amy has been terrific in every way. She’s been helpful, professional, patient, knowledgeable, accessible. In short, everything we could have asked for in a real estate agent. We can (and will) highly recommend her.

Amy truly did exceed my expectations! This was my first home buying experience and it could not have gone better. She was always very quick to respond to my emails and requests to visit properties, and she provided me with lots of useful information about the houses we were looking at and comparable ones in the area. She even correctly called what the outcome of some of the houses we looked at would be - she definitely has a great feel for the Austin real estate market.

I am a very independent person that likes to do all the research/decisions myself, and so I had a pretty strong idea of what I wanted going into it all. However, what I wanted wasn't very realistic in the Austin market, and I feel Amy did a great job of steering me towards a more realistic path without being condescending or impatient. If she hadn't done that I would probably still be spinning my wheels trying to find that "perfect" house.

Her help was invaluable, and I can tell she really enjoys her job - I never once felt like I was being treated as commission, and instead she seemed genuinely interested in helping me find the right house. I will definitely recommend her in the future to any of my friends looking to purchase.

Working with Amy Bernhard has been a real pleasure on all aspects from small to big projects! She is extremely professional, knowledgeable, smart and hard working! as well as a very enjoyable person to spend time with. Happy, healthy and successful new year Amy and all the team!

After calling Realty Austin in preparation of selling our house, Amy contacted us and we made an appointment. After speaking with her on the phone, (we lived out of town) I had a good feeling about working with her. Amy was prompt and went out of her way to accommodate our needs. We would tell anyone buying or selling to contact Amy as she was a pleasure to work with.

Having worked with Amy Bernhard from Realty Austin, the experience as a first time home buyer was simple, not pushy and less stressful than I had thought it might be. We looked for over 2 months for the perfect home and Amy was quick with setting appointments, responding to questions I had no clue to what the answer was and recommending excellent lenders and guiding us through the process with virtually no hiccups. These guys know their territory and how to be respectful of the clients time or sense of urgency. I highly recommend AMY BERNHARD and her team! Lastly to top it off she knew we were looking for a fixer upper and something we can dream up to be our own home with a budget. Amy's eye for design, aesthetic, buildouts within the Austin scene is what made the experience the greatest one I could have hoped for. She is highly resourceful and knows her market!!

I’ve known Amy Bernhard professionally for quite some time and have found her to be nothing short of a consummate professional in all of my dealings with her. I have and will continue to recommend her to all of my business associates and I look forward to working with her again myself in the future. Realty Austin is very lucky to have her as a member of the team.

I really can't recommend Amy Bernhard highly enough. As first-time buyers, it was important to us to work with a Realtor we could trust to be vigilant about all of the little details. Amy made sure the entire process went smoothly. She was very smart, extremely responsive, and a true pleasure to work with.

Amy Bernhard made my home-selling experience absolutely amazing. She is attentive, on-time/timely, thorough, listens to details, and is just very pleasant to work with. Do yourself a favor and contact her TODAY! Thank you Amy!

Amy and I have known each other for quite sometime, first meeting in Michigan when we both lived in Grand Rapids. I contacted her after I learned she moved to Austin and began doing real estate here. Amy has done an amazing job and I really couldn't have asked for a more smooth, problem free home purchasing process. She's been very responsive and very helpful throughout the process.

Amy was and is fantastic. I gave her a very difficult brief, and she worked hard and creatively to find me exactly the right house. She gave me good guidance on the bidding process, and great support through closing.  A++.

Amy was stellar. I couldn't have had a better experience working with an agent. She is a great communicator, a hard worker, and was a pleasure to work with. And this is almost all from buying a house without ever setting foot in it as I relocated from Massachusetts. I would recommend her to anyone.

We were very glad to work with Amy on the purchase of our home. She, in fact, did exceed our expectations. She was professional, offered great wisdom on the buying process and the market, and was also friendly, kind, and personal. We have already recommended her to several friends. She is a wonderful representative for Realty Austin.

I couldn't resist posting a rave review for Amy Bernhard! We had the pleasure of working with Amy in our search for our first house and we couldn't be happier with our experience. Amy was professional, caring, always available to answer our questions, and walked us through the process every step of the way. Her genuine, honest personality won us over right away and we were happy to feel like we could not only count on her as a trustworthy agent, but go to her at any time with questions and concerns. Because it was our first home, we had no idea what we were getting into! The emotional roller coaster was intense. But it was comforting to know that we were not alone. With the market the way it is in Austin, Amy gave us expert suggestions when we were interested in making an offer that made the difference in our offer being accepted. If she wouldn't have been so involved and on the ball, I have no doubt that we would not have the beautiful home we have today. I would recommend Amy to absolutely anyone looking for an agent. You will be pleased to find so much more. Thank you Amy! We are very grateful for you!

We have had a great experience with Amy. She has been very available to all of our needs and questions. I would recommend Amy to any of my friends or family because we feel she has made the process as easy and painless for us as possible.

Amy was absolutely delightful to work with. I've previously worked in real estate in Houston, and Amy is hands down the best agent I've had the opportunity to work with, as a coworker or client. She was really able to help me out with all of my needs and was able to fill in a lot of the gaps I had in knowledge about the Austin market.

Amy was incredibly attentive and was really good at picking out houses based on preferences of mine she noticed when we did our first few showings. She helped me put a finger on a lot of things I did and didn't like, but hadn't thought about. She even got me the perfect congratulatory present based off an offhand comment I had made once during a showing probably 2 months ago.

She was a great saleswoman in the sense that she helped me find exactly what I wanted without trying to up sell. When I told her my budget, she stuck to it, and even helped me get $10,000 off the original list price on the place where I eventually closed. All of this in a seller's market on a property with multiple offers!

I have no doubt that I will continue to work with Amy in the future and that I will recommend her to my friends as they start to search for a home. I have already recommended her to my parents, who will be closing on a property with her in the next week or so. They have also been happy with her work, and especially happy of how well she handled the fact that they were in Houston during their entire buying process.

In short, Amy is awesome!

We closed on our house in Wooten Park on Monday and could not be happier with the service we received from your agent Amy Bernhard! We came across Amy when she showed us a home that we requested a viewing of through your website. The house wasn't right for us but she kept in touch sending us MLS reports and anything she found she thought we might like. She was so good that even though one of my really good friends is a realtor, we decided to stick with her. When were finally ready to buy she was great! She kept in contact constantly via text, phone & email, even when she was on vacation. We had some very difficult sellers and Amy dealt with them very well. She was professional and at the same time personable so it felt like I was working with a friend instead of a person I'd just met. All in all she was a great realtor & I'd recommend her to anyone who was looking to buy or sell!

Rena McElroy, Facebook Review

Amy Bernhard has worked patiently and tirelessly with me throughout the home buying process. She continues to keep me informed of even the smallest details, and explains the significance and options of each step along the way. Additionally, Ms. Bernhard communicates with professionalism, charm, and grace, and is a joy to work with. I trust that someday, she will be working on large design or construction projects that redefine the way people interact with their home or work environment. Ms. Bernhard is a must-have for your real estate efforts, be it your first home or a large-scale commercial development.

Jake Wengroff

Amy has the perfect blend of technical knowledge, project management capability and intuitive appreciation for the factors that make the search for a sustainable modern home design work for clients. She worked hard to meet my needs and her creative solutions were both practical and true to the essence of the home ownership experience that I wanted to create. She is everything you would want in a consultant: knowledgeable, creative, and responsive. Plus, she had the patience of a saint through the many late night “brainwaves” that I wanted to add to the project, and made the experience very enjoyable. I highly recommend her services.

Alistair Deakin

After research and careful consideration of who would be the best Realtor to sell my downtown condo, Amy proved to be the best candidate. Amy is invested in relationships that revolve around downtown, including multiple networking groups, the entertainment sector and as a downtown dweller. In addition, Amy continues to stay involved in the many dynamics around the city. This has proved that she is bringing homeowner and buyers information from several different lifestyle domains.

Anita Prins

I would not be living in a beautiful, new modern home without Amy Bernhard. She was right there guiding me every step of the way including financing/closing, design choices, and moving in. I highly recommend her if you want someone to relate to you and others on the job.
