Betsy Smith

REALTOR®

Betsy brings many years of experience and explicit knowledge to the residential real estate market in Austin.

What sets Betsy Smith apart is her passion and dedication to helping her clients find the best home and at the best price possible. She treats every single client as if they were in her immediate family and she loves nothing more than to help people find the most perfect place to call home. With a strong technology and marketing background, coupled with her love for organization, and being a planner by nature, Betsy knows what it takes to be successful in a real estate transaction from beginning to end. She is savvy in negotiating, shows attentiveness to her buyers and sellers and brings a sense of humor to the table.

Your home is one of your biggest financial investments, and buying and selling real estate should be a fun and rewarding experience. She is dedicated to providing you, and those you refer to her, with superior customer service. Her listings have consistently sold for over 98% of their list price and can provide an extensive list of any kind of local resource you may need in the Austin area. She wants to keep her clients satisfied and will always put her clients first. Betsy has closed transactions on a variety of properties located in different parts of Austin and its suburbs; from condos in central Austin to single family homes in Dripping Springs, South Austin, North Austin, Georgetown, and Round Rock.

She couldn’t be happier to now be living and working in perfect Austin, especially as a former UT graduate and an avid Longhorn fan. She lives in Belterra and couldn’t enjoy the lifestyle of her community any more.

Betsy did a very professional job helping me to sell my home including dealing with me, as I am an engineer and have a very high strung personality, and I know I can be a demanding client. She did a good job at keeping the process on track once a contract was signed and getting us to the closing on schedule. She has my thanks and appreciation.

Betsy Smith is simply AWESOME! This is my second time working with her and I am so thankful for everything she has done. There is no one else I would trust to sell my house or help me find my perfect house.

We were very pleased with the quality of service we received from Betsy, as well as her professionalism. We intend to engage her further to sell the house that we're about to move from.

When I arrived in Austin considering relocating to be closer to my family, Betsy Smith provided very professional help in locating potential homes for my consideration and scheduling viewings in a timely manner. She was extremely attentive to my wishes and kept in constant contact with me as we searched for my "new" home, offering valued comments and insight. Betsy skillfully negotiated the arrangement with all parties and kept me fully informed throughout the process. From the first contact, through closing, she was a super help in understanding what was happening in the process and what to expect as we proceeded. I could not have been more pleased with her support, attentiveness, advice and knowledge. Betsy was a joy to work with and I highly recommend her for anyone's real estate needs.

Betsy is a terrific realtor! I have worked with her on several occasions (buying and selling) and I would always recommend her.

In a word, Betsy was great! We had a very tight schedule (only two days to look at houses), and Betsy helped us do the proper research ahead of time, as well as cleared her schedule for us so that we could look at a bunch of houses in one day. She gave good advice and superb suggestions, and did a good job of understanding our priorities and price range. She got our offer in quickly, helped us adjust it to the right level (our bid was quickly accepted), and then made sure everything went smoothly on through closing. I'll be looking to work with her again next time we're making a move.

Betsy was truly great to work with. She was very attentive and responsive. I never felt like once that she was blowing me off for another client. I have bought and sold homes before but never in a market like this, Betsy's advice was always consistent with what would end up happening. She truly knows and understands this market.

It was a pleasure working with her to sell my home. And I look forward to working with her when I buy something in a few months. Many kudos to Betsy.

Betsy made the entire process of searching and finding our house the best experience ever. Betsy was very diligent, determined, patient, and professional. Betsy went out of her way to make the house searching experience a pleasant as possible for both my wife and I.

We attribute her determination and ability to contact the resources she has to even being able to get the house of our dreams. Betsy assisted us with everything from finding the temporary apartment to finding a home and never wavered from her responsibility to us which was far more than we could have ever asked for. She made us a part of her everyday life and at times even put her own family aside to assist us on weekends and late days.

We would highly recommend Betsy to anyone looking to purchase a home and have in fact already spoken to some family members about that. Thank you Betsy and the entire staff at Realty Austin for making our dreams come true.

Betsy Smith is my new favorite Realtor! I highly recommend her to those buyers and sellers seeking quality real estate representation. Betsy's attitude, experience and project management skills are top notch. She is professional, well organized and focused on the win for her clients. I especially appreciated her tenacity in the face of adversity and sharp negotiating skills. I am very happy with the outcome and will be using her and Realty Austin's services again.

Over the last several months my wife and I have had the good fortune to work with Realty Austin's Betsy Smith with regard to the sale of our current home and the purchase of a new home. Betsy is a very knowledgeable and professional Realtor and, from the very beginning we have benefited from her hard work and diligence on our behalf.

After our initial contact, Betsy Smith started to send listings of homes that met our criteria. She did a good job lining up the showings and gave us enough time to consider each home. She mentioned things about some homes that assisted us in considering which homes would make our “top three." A return visit to those top homes the next day gave us a chance to further narrow the field. We did not feel hurried during the process. When we did make an offer, our rep was very helpful in the initial offer and then in the bargaining that followed. At the closing, we felt we could depend on our agent to explain areas that were unclear to us. The Title Company she recommended was very professional in all aspects before and during the closing. We were very satisfied with her knowledgeable, professional and friendly service.

Betsy Smith most assuredly exceeded my expectations throughout the process of selling my property. Realty Austin has a real jewel of a person working for them, in her. I don’t think I was an ideal customer in any way, and regardless of this fact, she remained patient, understanding, pleasant, informative, candid, and supportive. I relied on her heavily throughout the process, and she came through for me again and again. I will most definitely refer any friends and family that are in the market, her way.

Betsy is really great. Throughout the process, I was totally confident that she had a handle on the situation, giving me one less set of things to worry about. I would recommend her to others.

My experience with Betsy was the best. First, I was scared to death to be buying a house all by myself and also at the same time trying to sell my property in McCulloch County. Though my husband was a non-practicing attorney, he did all the paperwork on the two houses we bought in our 46 year marriage. Betsy had unlimited patience with my constant barrage of questions that had to do with the real estate transaction of buying a house while selling another. She zoned in right away on what I wanted, needed, and could afford. Plus she had to listen to the input of my children (I wanted them to have input also). She was always gracious and courteous not only to me but the other people we were dealing with. She explained every action, financial step, and the overall process in detail. She did not get upset when the closing had to be postponed due to dealing with a VA loan from my buyer that delayed the sale of my property. She acted as if it was no inconvience to her. I appreciated her calmness as I was not calm. Betsy presented me with two beautiful house warming gifts after the closing. Both personalized for my new home. A cookie jar with the name my grandchildren call me--an unusual nickname. She had to do some research to find that information. What an heartwarming gift. I hope she will come by and visit me when I get things in place in my lovely new "forever" home. I hope Realty Austin appreciates the quality employee that they have in Betsy.

Betsy was great. I have worked with Betsy on several occasions. She is competent, pleasant, and knowledgeable. I would strongly recommend her. She got my daughter top dollar with the sale of her home as well. She also uses a very sophisticated, but user friendly Web site.

Betsy Smith and Realty Austin get 5 stars! (I would give more stars if the scale allowed it). We have purchased many homes in the past, but never before was it this easy and this much fun. Betsy is an impeccable representative. Her attention to detail, availability, resourcefulness and knowledge make her an expert in her field. I am grateful for her hard work and passion. And, I love love love my new house!

Buying a home for the first time can be overwhelming. Fortunately, Betsy Smith expertly guided me and my husband through a seamless and stress-free transaction. From the start, Betsy was responsive and attentive to our situation. We immediately found a home that we loved, and Betsy used her experience to negotiate a purchase price within our budget. Betsy always stayed one step ahead of the process, and kept us informed on any updates along the way. Her diligence helped our lender and title company finalize our closing documents one full week before our contract date! Overall, we were very satisfied with our experience, and we would highly recommend Betsy to anyone who is looking to purchase a home for the first time.

I've worked with a lot of realtors, in several states, and I can say with certainty I have never had a better experience than with Betsy Smith. Most realtors I have found to be extremely lazy, especially in LA. So, I was very pleased to find out that Betsy is a workhorse. It seems she's on call 24/7, and she will never take no as the first answer. It was a real pleasure working with someone with such a strong work ethic. Not to mention she is a very nice person, and a pleasure to be around. In short she is the Terminator!

My deal was cumbersome due to mold issues that popped up in the house at the last minute, combined with a rate lock issue, and a very tight calendar. Without Betsy's leadership this deal would have NEVER happened at all, let alone before our holiday mortgage deadline.

She will be my first recommendation to anyone I know that is entering the very competitive Austin real estate market. Realty Austin is very lucky to have such a gifted realtor as Betsy on the team. I look forward to working with her again in the future.

My family and I recently moved into the wonderful community of Belterra and had the pleasure to work with Betsy Smith.

At the end of September, my husband excepted a roll with a new company, which required us to move our family in a short period of time. Betsy was always there to help, guide and support us all the way through.

As with any move, there are lot of questions, uncertainties, paperwork and emotions. Betsy's knowledge and compassionate spirit helped our family find our dream home. There needs to be more Betsy's in the world. As she was always going over and beyond to help make this life changing transition smooth and stress free.

We were so fortunate to have Betsy as our Realtor, because her knowledge and support allowed for us to have a smooth transition. My family and I had an amazing home buying experience and felt lucky to have Betsy stand by our side. We would recommend Betsy to anyone as we know they would be in good hands.

Thank you, Betsy!

Alison Slaton, Yelp Review

Working with Betsy was the best possible home buying experience. She is the consummate professional, yet also made us feel like we were working with a trusted family friend.

As first time homebuyers, my husband and I had many questions. Betsy made herself available to us in person, by phone, and by email at all times. She seemed genuinely pleased to be working with us. She answered all of our questions with patience and never seemed too busy to help.

When we made our initial offer, she met with us in person to go over the contract step by step. When we had our home inspected before purchase, Betsy was there and took detailed notes alongside us, then wrote a summary for us to help us prioritize our counter offer. We got everything we asked for.

We were moving into our dream home, in our ideal neighborhood, at our ideal purchase price one month from the time we first walked through the home. Never once during the process did we feel pressured or uncomfortable. After we moved in, Betsy followed up with us to make sure we were happy and all of the repairs had been completed properly.

Jillian & Michael Britton

We can't say enough nice things about Betsy Smith! We moved to Texas from out of state and finding a new home seemed so overwhelming! Betsy was with us every step of the way. She listened to what we were looking for and led us to the perfect house--one that we truly would have never found without her! The house wasn't even listed for sale yet, but it was through her persistence and great digging she found us the perfect home. And she negotiated it at the perfect price too! Betsy goes above the call of duty --always responsive and a joy to work with!

Sean & Melissa Tracey

Betsy is the most passionate, focused Realtor in the business. She is driven, ambitious and puts her client’s needs as a top priority!

Keri Emery

Betsy was extremely helpful and accommodating. She was knowledgeable, thorough, and detailed- only showing us the homes and neighborhoods that fit our needs and requested wants. I would highly recommend Betsy to anyone seeking to sell or purchase a home. We will use her for many years to come!

Reed Carlstone

Betsy was our real estate agent for our first home. She was extremely knowledgeable and worked very closely with the home builder to get all of our questions answered. She is extremely reliable and friendly. I would recommend Betsy to anyone looking for a new home.

Cheryl & Ross Parker

As a home inspector, I have the opportunity to observe many realtors at work. Betsy impressed me from the beginning. She works very hard for her clients, but seems at ease doing it, and makes all those around her comfortable. She is an excellent representative for her clients, attending inspections with or for them. Helping them wade through the paperwork, negotiating repairs. She spends time getting to know what her clients hold important, and never pressures them to stray from that in order to make a sale. If someone were to ask me to recommend a Realtor, I would give them Betsy’s number.

Randy Hooser

I have been a licensed Realtor in Austin Texas for over a decade. I refer all of my residential clients moving to Dallas to Betsy. I have the highest praise for Betsy both professionally and personally. She is of the highest moral character and substance. She is highly intelligent, very knowledgeable in her field and service oriented to her clients. It's too bad everybody in Dallas can't use Betsy for all their residential real estate needs.

Chris Hightower

Amber and I would like to share our appreciation for working with us to sell our house and purchase a new home in Allen. The customer service provided by Betsy cannot be matched. We cannot even begin to fathom all the work your team did behind the scene to get us the best deal. We know the team is busy and supporting many clients, but we always felt like we were your only clients! The entire process was easy and stress-free. We are looking forward to working with your team again in the future.
