Debbie Fontenette was very helpful in our process of purchasing a home, and I would refer anyone to her!

Debbie was great. I was a little more financially astute the most buyers, so the main thing was needing her help on repair inspections in the negotiations of those things. I would not have spotted issues if she wasn't on the ball with financial matters. She went out of her way to visit us when we needed immediate help and was always aware of all the processes taken place. I would highly recommend working with Debbie.

Our experience with Debbie Fontenette was probably the best I have ever had with a real estate agent. She talked us through what we truly wanted and needed, moved quickly, had a thorough knowledge of the market, and gave us excellent guidance on where to look and which property would be the best investment long-term. Her judgment on negotiating with the seller was spot-on, getting us the best deal as well as on time.

Charlotte was absolutely amazing to work with. I will be recommending her to anyone who is beginning the house hunting process. She was very responsive to both my wife and myself and went above and beyond to not only get us into houses we wanted to see but to also get us the right deal on the house we bought. She worked within the guidelines that we pre-set and never pushed us into anything that was outside of it.

It was evident that Charlotte knew her stuff and knew exactly how to push forward strategically. Charlotte aligned us with great people to help us with our loan and inspections and knew how to work the process when negotiating the deal. Her trained and experienced eye didn't miss a thing. That, coupled with her straight forward and honest approach, was precisely what we were looking for in an agent. Both Katie and I are very excited about our new house, and with Charlotte's guidance and expertise, we felt all the more confident about the decisions we made. As first time home buyers, I don't think that we could have hoped for a better agent than Charlotte!

I met Charlotte Hair in the checkout line at TJ MAXX when I was pregnant with our firstborn. I remembered her a year later when we were ready to buy a house and gave her a call. The most important things to me in a real estate agent are communication, expertise, and patience. She was always so quick to respond to any questions and concerns. She was an expert on every house we saw, and as first-time home-buyers, we saw PLENTY. She was also very patient and never rushed us into making an offer or any decision we weren't ready for. Through the years since that time, she has become a family (a friend like family), and when it came time to sell our home five years later, we called her right away. She worked quickly and diligently, and we received two full-priced offers within two days of listing. If you're looking for a Realtor who is trustworthy, extremely knowledgeable, a great communicator and VERY good at her job, please call Charlotte Hair!

Lucy and I would like to express our sincere gratitude to Charlotte for her professional service in our recent purchase of the property in Austin. She is the best agent we’ve come across in real estate business in terms of caring for client’s interest, knowledge, and passion. We are very lucky to have her with us in an otherwise complicated and almost frustrating remote transaction. We will recommend her to our friends.

Charlotte Hair was recommended to represent me in a purchase and was immediately available to see the process through. I was paying cash and wanted to close asap, so it was necessary to expedite the process, and Charlotte ensured it was. Her experience, knowledge, and expertise ensured my requirements were met. She asked pertinent questions, kept me informed of the progress, took care of all aspects of the process, met me several times at the property. Charlotte performed her job with the highest degree of professionalism, was tremendously attentive to my needs, and maintained an upbeat and friendly attitude. I highly recommend her, and no doubt will ask her to represent me in future real estate transactions in the future. By the way, she ensured that all this took less than an unheard of three weeks. There may be many great Realtors in Austin, but NONE are better than Charlotte Hair!

Debbie has worked with me on about ten or so real estate transactions over the past six years. I consider her not only my real estate agent, but a friend as well. I would recommend Debbie to anyone.

Charlotte is the absolute best!! Charlotte goes above and beyond, and she definitely exceeded our expectations throughout the entire home buying process. We would never use anyone else!

I couldn’t thank Charlotte enough for the wonderful job she had done for us. She stood by us all way through the closing day and explained the hole process patiently. I would recommend Charlotte to everyone I know who is thinking about embarking on the home buying experience. Charlotte made the process as smooth as possible given all the obstacles we faced along the way.

Saying Charlotte was AMAZING is not enough. She was the ultimate mama bear when it came to my husband and I. So many times during this process we totally felt protected and “looked after.” Not only did we learn a wealth of information, but we would not have wanted to be with any other Realtor. The attention to detail, the keep pushing forward attitude and the determination to right any wrong left both my husband and I speechless. Many, many, many thanks to Charlotte for making our home buying experience a memorable one. We would and will recommend Charlotte to anyone looking to buy a home in the Austin area.

Charlotte was an amazing asset before, during and after the selling process. She was extremely generous with her time, providing guidance and insights and how to best prepare our home for sale, what we should do and what we shouldn't bother doing. Our relationship with Charlotte goes back to when we were seeking rental property to move into so that we could prepare our home for sale, where she was extremely patient in helping us find a suitable home to rent. Charlotte is very friendly and easy to work with. What struck me most is that we went through a process of evaluating several Realtors before we chose Charlotte. Even during this time she was always helpful, offering her advice on how to prepare our home, keeping us appraised of comps, etc.. It was an easy choice to select Charlotte as she had a warm personality, offered honest opinions and was very believable with her marketing plan. When we selected her, she was ready to go with comps and analysis that allowed us to price our home properly for quick sale. I would wholeheartedly endorse and recommend Charlotte to anybody without any fear of her not performing just as well for them. I look forward to working with her when we decide to buy again in the future.

Debbie did a fabulous job of helping us sell our rental property in Round Rock. She is very professional and kept us informed of everything along the way. Debbie is very knowledgeable about the area and the market and did a great job of marketing to investors, so our tenant could continue the term of her lease. I would highly recommend Debbie to anyone who is looking for a knowledgeable realtor who is efficient at getting things done. We love her!

Debbie Fontenette was a joy to work with, and honestly has earned saint status in my book. The sale of my house was challenging, due to feuding family members, yet Debbie handled it with impeccable professionalism and tact and was instrumental in helping us sell the house at our asking price and very quickly. She was also stellar with assisting with finding a rental home and steered us in the right direction to a place that we love. I don't honestly think anyone else could have tackled this task better than Debbie. She is hands down the best Realtor in Austin, if not the state of Texas!

I had worked with Debbie when my family bought my home, which was sold recently, in late 1992. Since then Debbie has been in touch with my family, and after my husband passed away and my daughter moved on, she has maintained the contact with me. We liked Debbie so much that I insisted that she be the Realtor to work with at the time my daughter and I decided to sell the house. As before, she was very efficient, friendly, and very caring. It was worthy to keep Debbie as my Realtor for such a long time (25 years). I will certainly recommend her to my friends, colleagues at work, and acquaintances.

Working with Debbie Fontenette, we had the sense that she has a sincere respect for her all customer's financial and practical needs regardless of their income, which is a wonderful quality in a real estate agent. We found a great house in a great neighborhood, and we felt safe and well informed as we made our decision. Debbie did a fabulous job of explaining the housing market and the paperwork clearly and effectively so that we understood every step of the process. We really appreciated her help, and feel happy to recommend her to anyone looking for a house in Austin.

Debbie took care of my co-worker Cheryl, and now I am taking her to dinner to celebrate her "New Home." She is very happy with her new home and her experience with Debbie as her REALTOR. I'm very happy that I could help her in the process by referring Cheryl to Debbie.

As per usual, Debbie's professionalism shines again. I received the homestead exemption in the mail last week, and it is in the mail. I very much appreciate all the hard work that Debbie did for me.

Debbie is a Godsend to our family. She sat down and talked with us and found out exactly what we needed and what we were looking for in our search for our new home. She not only found exactly what we needed but at the perfect price. I was a first time home buyer and Debbie was there every step and answered every question and concern. If we ever decide to relocate, I definitely would call Debbie, to sell my current house and search for a new home. She not only went the extra mile but cared about finding the perfect home for all involved. We were never treated as a client, but like family. I would definitely recommend Debbie to anyone looking for a new home. She is professional, dedicated, knowledgeable, and caring.

Debbie is amazing!!!! She has assisted me on four occasions, buying a home twice and selling a home twice. Debbie is professional and takes pride in her work and never ceases to amaze me. She is also knowledgeable, and I was recently amazed at how she took me through a house under construction with mainly just walls and a roof, and she knew what each room/space was going to be which was confirmed when we went to the sales office, and I saw the floor plan. Also when Debbie showed me homes, she was able to recognize homes that had potential foundation issues and was able to distinguish those from houses that just had to settle. She even knew that a home had recently had the foundation repaired. Also at closing, she was even more knowledgeable than the woman at the title company who assisted me with getting my closing forms signed. Working with her has truly been a pleasure and sets my mind at ease especially since buying and selling a home can be stressful. I know I'm in good hands with her on my team. She is my Realtor for life! Charlotte also assisted me as well and was very knowledgeable.

Debbie got the request to offer her assistance to us from one of her fellow Realtors who is a friend of my son's and his wife's family. She was not available, so she asked Debbie to assist. Debbie Fontenette contacted me as we were driving from Illinois to Texas. We discussed what we wanted in a new home. I told her about a house that we had identified online that was of interest. Debbie went to the builder's office the next day and had already spoken with them before our arrival. While she knew that we were extremely interested in this house, she showed us other homes which solidified our decision to purchase the home. Debbie has been with us all of the way. She is very detail oriented and pointed out a number of items in the home that needed attention. It was very helpful having her assist us as all we were thinking is that we didn't want to move twice. If we were to build from the beginning, we would have to rent for about 5-6 months. We just did not want to do that. The house that we bought checked off most of our boxes. Debbie helped us realize that this was a good decision for us by showing us other similar homes in our price range. We knew that we had made the best decision. She also helped as we prepared to negotiate. I would highly recommend Debbie Fontenette to any future individuals in the Austin area who are in the market for a home. She is great and will truly be there for you when you need her.

Debbie is amazing! She helped my partner, and I sell our home and buy two new homes. One for her and one for me. Debbie was amazing at keeping us both on track with the sale of our home and the purchases of our new homes. She was always just an email, text or phone call away. Anytime I had a question she was quick to call and explain everything to me. I highly recommend her and her years of experience. She is always very friendly, kind and thoughtful. She is definitely my forever Realtor.
