Brenda Underwood was our Realtor and let me tell you this woman is awesome! She went above and beyond to help us, guide us, worked with our busy schedule to look for homes. Not only does this woman have a fantastic work ethic, but she's also personable, easy to talk to, extremely knowledgeable, and worthy experience! She knows the ins and outs of what it takes to make a competitive deal in this Austin housing market (houses usually can go off the market as soon as it comes on to list)! She made the process so easy from hooking us up with a great lender (who also gave us a great experience)! Brenda was always available for us to ask questions and not once did we feel like we were just her clients, but more like her family! She looked out for us in every way possible, and I'm so lucky we found her! I will forever be grateful for getting us our dream home!

Simply put, Brenda is the gold, no, the platinum standard. She raises the bar for all other Realtors. We’ve bought and sold many homes in several states through the years, and I was a licensed agent as well. With our experiences, we have seen much in the real estate industry. And Without question, Brenda is at the top of the list. For the first time, we met someone who was actually enthusiastic about our listing. Others took listings it in stride, basically “ phoning it in,” knowing that in a hot market the homes practically sell themselves. But not Brenda. She brought the top photographer to shoot the house, she researched the market and confidently listed at an amount that was even higher than we were thinking. Her research paid off, cause we got multiple offers in less than three weeks, setting a neighborhood record! And if that wasn’t enough, she made the negotiation process, home inspection, appraisal and closing run as smoothly as possible. It was seamless from beginning to end.

Brenda was patient with us, very informed, professional, etc., etc. If I seem to be laying it in thick, it’ because it’s really important to us that you understand what a real star Realty Austin has, and everything Brenda does to sell a home. I’m sure that she’s equally excellent on the home purchase side too. The entire time we felt as if we were Brenda's only client. I don’t know how she does it. She always responded promptly and with a wealth of knowledge and information. Even with my background I learned a lot.

Brenda was awesome! I have made several trips to Georgetown to look at homes. Brenda clearly understood my likes and dislikes in looking for our new home. She was very patient with me and found the perfect home! Brenda communicated with my husband and I on a daily basis during the loan and closing and even recommended Will Moore to do our financing. It was a painless and enjoyable process. I have already recommended her to my niece who is moving from California to Austin. Brenda definitely exceeded our expectations!

Simply put, Brenda is SUPERB! We first began working with Brenda in 2013, so she has demonstrated great patience as we have gone through multiple military moves during this time frame and she has always been there for us. Gwen and I are both people that enjoy building relationships, and from the time we first met Brenda, the three us clicked like we were well-acquainted friends and family. Brenda went above and beyond from the time we first contacted her and during our entire purchase process. We love her and think the world of her and know that she will continue to do wonderful things with her clients and on behalf of Realty Austin.

Brenda nailed it again! This was the second time we used Brenda's expertise. My wife and I got the itch to move and found a house we loved, so the first thing we did was call Brenda. She came over and gave the right advice on how to prep the house, the right price point using the market data and we sold within two weeks for asking price. She also wanted to make sure we explored all of our options before making an offer in the house we loved, considering we only looked at that one. Was Brenda right, we fell in love with not only the home we bought but the community too. Brenda not only nailed the price negotiation but got us some additional upgrades all under the selling price. She made sure every detail from start to finish in this whole process was perfect. I can't say enough about Brenda's professionalism and knowledge, Brenda is our Realtor, and we wouldn't trust or consider anyone else in the future. She is a Rockstar!

Brenda is an exceptional person to work with and knows how to get the job done with minimal fuss. We always appreciate, and more importantly, enjoy working with her. I just can’t imagine there could be a better agent out there.

This the third transaction we have worked with Brenda Underwood. She is wonderful, knowledgeable, very professional and a great person. She knows her business, tells you the truth and does what she says she will do. We will use her again.

I hope that I can adequately convey my appreciation for the hard work and dedication of Brenda Underwood. Looking for and buying a house long distance is a daunting task - Brenda made a really tough job look easy. She was extremely knowledgeable and professional yet very caring and compassionate. Brenda made me feel like I was much more than a potential buyer and her ability to make this process go as smooth as possible is a real testament to the love of her job. I would highly recommend Brenda!!

Brenda is amazing! She was referred to us by a friend who had bought and sold a house with her in the past. She is unbelievably efficient and prompt in answering calls. She goes above and beyond in making sure we understand the processes and smoothing the transition of a move. We are eager to recommend her to potential home buyers and sellers. We count her as a friend.

I will say that I was very blessed to have Brenda as my realtor. She was recommended by a close friend of mine. As a first time buyer, I was very nervous about this whole process. I had no idea what price range I should be going for and honestly felt that I would only be able to buy a small lot with a shack in the middle based on my pre-qualified letter. Brenda was able to find some great options and was always open to my findings as well. She was extremely patient with me, worked with me since about March of this year. I never felt pressured at any point to buy a house and she never told me “You shouldn’t buy this!”. She gave me very good pointers of the goods and bads and allowed me to make the decision myself. As my taste changed while I was looking at several options, she always adapted to it as well. I knew she was always in my corner when we went to place bids. Always reassuring me of what I deserved from the seller/property. I would recommend Brenda in a heartbeat to anyone that needed a realtor. She definitely exceeded my expectations. I can go on and on but I think those are the very important things that make Brenda a great realtor. If I ever win the lottery, which I am trying very hard to do, I will definitely go back to Brenda to help me with new property.

I've worked with Brenda Underwood on multiple sales and purchases and she is outstanding! She knows the market, she keeps me grounded and realistic in expectations, and I know she has my best interests at heart. I'll keep using Brenda with new purchases in the future!

Brenda was absolutely amazing. She made this process so easy and always had our best interest at heart. Her knowledge and honesty really goes a long way. As with any relationship, communication is key, and she was always prompt to reply to our emails, phone calls and texts at all hours of the day and night (even when she was out of town). My wife and I have nothing but amazing things to say about her and wouldn't not use anyone else for our future home purchases. I have no hesitation in recommending her to family and friends.

Brenda Underwood was everything we wanted in our realtor. We had no timeline when we started our house hunt and she didn't mind that. One day we just set out to explore "Austin" as we were out of towners and that was super cool ! We would highly recommend Brenda !

Brenda was beyond wonderful to us. She was always available to us and helped us through this process every step of the way. We would definitely recommend her to anyone we know who might be in need of a realtor. In fact, we would probably be very insistent that they call Brenda! Considering my first contact with Brenda was over 2 years ago, the fact that she was still even interested in helping us was much appreciated. We’re actually a little sad that we won’t be talking to her on a somewhat regular basis after this is all wrapped up!

Thank you Brenda!

Brenda Underwood has helped us purchase and sell several properties and is the best Realtor in the Austin area . Brenda listens to your needs and wants and delivers. Brenda is quick to respond to phone calls and emails making the process easier.

I have worked with Brenda Underwood as my seller's realtor on two homes in the past and my current home which I just sold. Brenda has been great to work with! She's professional and personable and has always been there for me when I had a crazy question. She always gives me her honest opinion whether it's what I want to hear or not. I really appreciate that! She helped me sell my last home which closed last week! It was on the market for 22 days. Brenda was able to get me over $10k more than I expected on the house. I will continue to use Brenda and highly recommend her!

My wife and I just closed on our new home today and couldn't have better things to say about our experience. We met Brenda from Realty Austin by accident during an open house she was hosting. Quick exchange of business cards and information and Brenda got back to us immediately. Brenda is on top of her game and helped us find just the right house for our family. Very responsive communications both phone and email and the occasional text as well. Brenda helped us through every aspect of home buying and made it as smooth and pleasant as could be. She went above and beyond to make sure to point out things that may have been "gotchas" in homes we were looking for and was really looking out for her customers needs vs just trying to make a sale. Needless to say my wife and I are very happy with our experience and would recommend her to anyone looking to purchase a new home.

I was very pleased with the job Brenda did. We had to handle multiple obstacles and she didn't miss a step. I would recommend her to anyone looking for a home, and she did a far better job than the Realtor I used in the past. I was glad to get to know her. I give her an A+

Brenda definitely EXCEEDS ANY CLIENT'S EXPECTATIONS! Brenda's service was IMPECCABLE! She was extremely knowledgeable in EVERY WAY. She was also a pleasure to deal with and extremely NURTURING, as well, very intuitive about getting a feel for the properties and neighborhoods that we would like. For example, Brenda had a FULL DAY OF LOOKING AT PROPERTIES ALL OVER THE AUSTIN AREA, and realized early in the day that we did not want a gated community, needed to be by a lake, with rolling hills, as my husband David is an avid hiker (hiking Muir Woods, Big Sur, etc). She was also a lot of fun to work with as well! Being a native New Yorker/Jersey I have high energy, as well as Brenda! This gal was so dedicated, and just made things happen. Realty Austin is lucky to have someone like Brenda representing their company! I have never seen such DEDICATION! In a HEARTBEAT, I would recommend Brenda Underwood. I also was impressed with the team she worked with. She referred us to Marie Funston at Capstar Lending that worked as hard and dedicated as Brenda. On a personal note, when my dad passed away, Brenda made it possible for my husband to fly back to my dad's funeral, as she retrieved my car. So Brenda Underwood, DEFINITELY WENT ABOVE AND BEYOND! I thank you for giving me this opportunity to express my wonderful experience with Brenda..

I cannot say enough about how wonderful my experience was working with Brenda. I bought a house with her help 9 years ago when I moved to Austin. When it was time to look for a house for my Mom I immediately thought of Brenda and wanted to work with her again. She was always available to me, including evenings and Sundays and sending emails after 9pm at night. She gave me great suggestions and let me bounce ideas off of her. She really worked hard to help me find a property that worked for us immediately, and helped us get the property even though there were other bids. She was always looking out for our best interest and really worked hard to get our requests and needs conveyed to the seller’s agent. She was available to meet at the property at any time that we needed her to. She went way above and beyond in meeting our expectations. For closing, the seller’s agent set us up far south and I live in Cedar Park. The keys were shipped from Cedar Park to the South Mopac location, but not until after we left. Brenda volunteered to wait for the keys to arrive so that she could drive them back up to me that afternoon so we could enter the house right away as planned. She is very kind, courteous, professional, and goes above and beyond to help her clients. I would recommend friends and family to work with her if they have the need. I have not met a more hardworking agent, and I truly am grateful for everything that Brenda did for us. She deserves to be recognized for her outstanding support and her dedication to her client.


As first time home buyers we were not sure what to expect going into this process and were tentative to start. It was our plan to sit down and meet a number of different real estate agents and see who we felt the most comfortable with. The first agent we met with was Brenda Underwood; our search started and ended there.  Right from the first time we met Brenda we knew that we were comfortable and that we were going to be supported properly. Brenda made this entire experience so easy for us from start to finish. We could tell right from the outset that Brenda was not in this to make a quick sale, she was in it to make sure that we got everything we wanted and more, in our budget and in our timeline. Brenda bent over backwards to show us every property we wanted to see. After seeing a few properties there were certain things that Brenda could tell we wanted and did not want based on our reactions, which goes to show how knowledgeable Brenda is in her field. Throughout the entire process we felt comfortable and knew that we would get what we wanted because we had Brenda on our side. When we finally found the home for us, Brenda went to work on the difficult process we laid in front of her (a home that was FSBO and that was continuously getting appraised for less than the listing price). During the home inspection I was able to meet the homeowners (seller's). The sellers made it very clear to me that they had had a horrible experience so far trying to sell their home and every agent that walked through their door was tough to work with. In the sellers own words he said, "We have had a GREAT experience working with Brenda. I have to be honest with you, my wife and I had made an agreement that if the buying agent on this deal was as bad as the others, we would back out, take the home off the market and rent it out. But, this seems meant to be because Brenda is fantastic, she has been a pleasure to work with." Every day throughout this entire process Brenda has answered every question I have had and bent over backwards to walk us through the process step by steps as it was our first time. Brenda even went to the trouble to move the closing location to a location that was easier access for both us and the sellers. We closed on Thursday. OnFriday, I texted Brenda with a favor and a question; she answered immediately and followed through on the favor and answer. Saturday, I texted Brenda with another question asking her to get in touch with the selling party to figure out how something at the home worked; she responded with an answer within 10 minutes. That is service! I would recommend Brenda to anyone in the market to buy or sell a home and would not even think twice about it. She is the utmost professional agent I have had the pleasure to come in contact with. There is not enough time in the day for me to explain how wonderful Brenda has been to my wife and I since the day we met her. I commend Realty Austin for having an agent as good as Brenda on their team. I would like to end by thanking Realty Austin and Brenda Underwood for representing my wife and I in this process. It is a tough market in Austin, and without Brenda on our side I strongly believe our home buying experience would not have been as close to perfect as it was.

Sean Harvey

Our experience with Brenda Underwood was fantastic. She was referred to us by a family member and once again she delivered big time. She was available to reach at all times and was always very quick to respond to any questions. She made buying a home very stress free and with her extensive knowledge in the market and area she was able to make recommendations that we had not thought about and leaves no stone unturned. I would highly recommend using Brenda’s services to anyone, you will feel confident and secure when buying a home when Brenda is representing you.

Rob Pulley

Brenda Underwood is amazing and we feel truly fortunate to have worked with her to sell our old home and buy a new one over the last few months.  After a negative experience with another realtor from another company, working with Brenda was a breeze.  She truly got us and what we were looking for.   Please let me know if there's anything else I can do to help out Brenda or Realty Austin in the future.  You guys are fantastic!

Josh Sokol

I would like to thank our Realty Austin agent, Brenda Underwood, for a hassle free closing on a property I recently purchased. The transaction was handled professionally and in a timely manner with few of the usual closing snags. Thanks again Brenda!

KenB, Yahoo! Review

I just think she listened to what we needed and found properties that matched that.. We did not go to any properties that were not what we were looking for.. She also gave us as much info as she could before walking into a property.

Cory Johnson

Hey Brenda,

It just can't go without saying...YOU ROCK!! And, to be even more specific, your professional, reliable, smart, honest, straight forward, trustworthy, you do what you say you are going to do, does what you don't ask her to do, anticipates needs, reads minds, kind, thoughtful, very skilled at your profession, a pleasure to work with, prompt, an amazing Realtor. Thank you for everything & being you. We really enjoyed the gift basket, you know we needed some celebration tools - aka wine. In fact we are still celebrating! All the best to you.

Laura Stewart

Brenda was always kind, courteous, and prompt. She always followed through on everything we had planned earlier in the week. She explained many of the rules for determining the value of property. She also warned me about certain negative factors that could possibly keep the value of a property lower than comparables in the area. She also showed me ways to protect myself in negotiating with a seller. Overall, she was willing to take the time necessary to find a house that satisfied her client and assist in the negotiations leading up to closing.

Mr. Stephen Coley

Brenda Underwood is one of the best Real Estate agents we’ve ever worked with, she is knowledgeable, professional, trustworthy and always goes the extra mile. We enjoy her so much she is considered family to us. 2nd transaction: We are back! Brenda knows what we want, she knows the market and we move every three years, we will be back.

Brent & Tasha

Brenda was such a pleasure to work with, she is very knowledgeable, conscientious and has excellent listening skills.

David & Laura S.

Brenda Underwood did an outstanding job in getting our house ready to go on the market and getting it sold quickly! Since we live out of state, a smooth experience was important to us, we could not have done this without her help.

Wayne & Lana R.

Brenda Underwood was FABULOUS in representing us as both seller and buyer! Brenda represented superior professionalism, good spirit, dedication and service. You’ve got a GEM and we will continue to use Brenda for all of our real estate transactions.

Justin & Annette H.

Brenda works hard and was always on top of everything, I will keep referring friends to Brenda.

Vernon J.

Brenda went above and beyond her call of duty she has an outstanding commitment to her clients. Brenda continued to work and negotiate with my builder even after the sale was closed to make sure a wood mantel was adjusted to avoid fire hazard, in order to accomplish this she had to go to their corporate office. I could not have done this by myself.
