Selling my mom's estate seemed daunting, but meeting with Dena alleviated my concerns. She was very knowledgeable and eager to help, and I developed immediate trust in her. With five siblings trying to dispose of my mom's estate consensus was non-existent and agreement between us siblings came with much difficulty. But through it, all Dena was kind, supportive and most gracious always. I cannot thank her enough for that. Would I recommend Realty Austin and Dena Hinds? Would I use them again? Unequivocally yes, without hesitation and reservation.

Before choosing a real estate agent, I researched to see who the best fit would be to guide me to find and help me purchase my first home. Realty Austin stood out as the best Austin has to offer. At that point, Dena Hinds was highly recommended by friends and family that have used her prior.

Dena went above and beyond the scope of her “job” by spending countless hours answering any question that I may have (being a first-time home buyer, I had a lot of questions). Additionally, she provided plenty of options and more importantly her professional opinion. She was timely in every manner. Dena made this experience effortless and truly went the extra mile! Moving forward I will recommend Dena to everyone that I know. She’s a true professional and a genuinely great person! I realize it isn’t always easy to find/buy the house, but it would be hard pressed to find a better Realtor.

I had the pleasure to work with Dena the last month and a half and I'm completely satisfied with the service she provided us. Dena was extraordinarily punctual and knowledgeable. She was patient, professional and friendly. I’m incredibly blessed to have had the opportunity to work with her. I highly recommend Dena and definitely will work with her again when needed.

I transferred to the Austin area and was referred to Dena Hinds as my agent. It always is a little nerve racking not knowing your Realtor or what to expect, but Dena is so personable and friendly and so knowledgeable about the Austin area, that she helped me enjoy my experience in trying to find a home. In just a matter of weeks, she helped me find a home that I just absolutely loved! The whole process was seamless, and I truly believe it is because she knows so much about the area and has so many contacts to make this as easy as possible on anyone. I thank Dena for her wonderful help and making my transfer to Austin so easy! I highly recommend her to anyone needing a Realtor!

My wife and I had a wonderful experience working with Dena Hinds. We were referred to her by our hometown agent as we relocated to the Austin area from our lifelong home in Northwest Indiana. She is very knowledgeable and a great person to have on your side when purchasing a new home. We were very thankful to have received this referral.

Dena is a life saver. I’ve known her for quite a while, and she sold me my house eight years ago. I love her dearly, and Realty Austin is very blessed to have her! I highly recommend Dena!

Dena is excellent! There was no doubt who we would be calling when we decided to purchase another rental property. We always recommend Dena to friends and family who want to purchase a home or rental property.

It was great working with Dena. I was out of state but was aware of all the updates through regular emails, texts, and calls, etc., which was really helpful. It was a great experience. I would recommend Dena to family and friends.

Our experience with Dena was wonderful! Dena helped us purchase our first Round Rock home back in 2012, and we knew exactly who to go back to when we were ready to move into a bigger home this year. We chose to work with Dena again because we knew that she cared about us and helped us find the right home for our family. Dena's knowledge of the market (especially here in Round Rock), experience, professionalism, caring-heart and overall dedication to us made this process go smoothly and happily! One day we just decided it was time to buy a bigger house and put ours on the market and then Dena helped us set that ball in motion. I'm happy that we got it all done quickly with no hiccups. Dena and her team were in constant contact with us and only a phone call or text message away to answer any questions; even on evenings and weekends! We love Dena! She's much like family to us and in fact, in the first few moments after we walked into our new house after becoming the new owners, our three-year-old little boy asked us, "Where's Ms. Dena?" He had gotten very used to seeing her smiling face here. We will continue to recommend Dena to all of our family and friends! She's the best!

I very much enjoyed working with Dena. She is very knowledgeable and was able to point out the good and bad details of all the homes we viewed. She was very helpful throughout the entire process. Without a doubt, I would recommend her to family and friends.

Dena Hinds is an amazing realtor! She was recommended to us by a friend, and we are delighted we chose her to help us sell our home. She helped to make the experience almost seamless. Since we hadn't sold a house for 18 years, many things had changed since our last move. She answered our many questions promptly and helped us feel at ease. I have recommended her to my friends. She's one of the best!

Dena Hinds is the best realtor I have ever worked with. Besides getting my house sold in record time, she really cares about her clients and always answered every text or phone call quickly. Selling a house is stressful, but with her advice and looking out for my best interests, the whole process was a breeze.

Let me start by saying I've sold five houses in the past, and none of my previous real estate agents have provided the quality of service Dena has. Dena was my agent when I initially purchased this property over five years ago and based on that experience, I knew she was who I wanted to sell it for me. From our initial meeting regarding this sale, she spent a lot of time talking and getting reacquainted with me and asking questions as to what I was hoping to get from the deal. Once that was established, she worked quickly and diligently to list my property, and get all the paperwork in order.

During the initial phase, there were a few hiccups on my part regarding documentation on the property, but through it all, Dena was patient, understanding and professional. Together we got everything in order, and had an offer within 24 of listing!! The prospective buyers submitted a contract that Dena felt was not entirely fair to me, so she advised me on how she thought I should proceed, but also made it clear that she would support any decision I made. I especially appreciated that, because I've had previous agents who would have wanted me to settle and go for a quick sale. Dena was completely confident in her ability to sell my property at a deal that was beneficial to me. I had faith and confidence in her experience and judgment, and never doubted she had my best interest in mind.

I could go on and on about the level of support she provided to me during this period, but this would be even lengthier then it already is!! Suffice it to say, Dena was able to list my property, negotiate a deal in which I received over asking price, and close all within two weeks!

As I previously mentioned, I knew I wanted Dena to sell my property based on our previous deal, and when I start looking to purchase another property, she will definitely be my agent again. I would highly recommend her to anyone who asked me. Her professionalism, support, and very positive attitude are unmatched as far as I'm concerned!

Dena Hinds HAS to be the "cream of the crop" for Realty Austin. Let me break it down:

Friendliness - She always has a smile on her face....even when dealing with challenging realtors from other companies. Her disarming smile immediately puts a client at ease which endears them to her and promotes trust.

Work ethic - She works tirelessly around the clock to get the best deal for her clients....whether they're a seller or a buyer. She was always available to answer my questions....even the stupid sounding ones and never once did she make me feel dumb.

A teacher's heart - as a teacher one must know the subject matter inside and out and be able to instruct others to the level of understanding they possess. Dena's real estate knowledge, in my observation (we've used her on three home transactions), could be compared to someone with a doctorate degree. She not only KNOWS the material but has a firm grasp on the pulse of the real estate market and is able to TEACH her clients on the nuances of the market.

Commitment - once a client has agreed to working with Dena, her commitment is etched in stone. She h

Dena has been a Godsend to us and bent over backward to make sure we were fairly treated and received the deal/funds that we were looking to get from the sale of our house. She went to bat for us and secured the deal we wanted on our new house. I would not think of ever using anyone else but Dena for any future sales or purchases. She is a true professional, while also making you feel like family. I don't know that we would have endured the entire process without her.

I have worked with other realtors before and none compared with Dena. I really could not see myself using a differ realtor again.

We worked on both a buy and a sell and I was impressed by each step. The sell was difficult; it was a duplex with two sets of very uncooperative tenants. I wanted a quick and painless sale but the tenants wanted to fight with me every step of the way. Where I could not get cooperation Dena did just that. By the end of the sale, Dena was the one working directly with the tenants making things much easier for me. Dena even had closing moved too so it would be closer to me!

The buy was with a seller who had very little interest in closing on the agreed date. Behind the scenes, Dena worked and we closed on time. Along the way she kept me calm and rational and brought a positive attitude. Being a realtor is part therapist and selling and buying property is already stressful. It's nice to have a realtor who listens and responds.

What I am most impressed with are her efficiency and professionalism. It's nice to have a realtor understand that I too am working and time can be very scarce. Dena respected my time from the beginning until the final closing. I sold and bought property and only took one day away from work because Dena took the lead and handled everything. Dena is organized and professional. Never once was I asked for the same document twice or for my signature twice. I had to do very little during the entire process.

After working with Dena on two closings and for six months I will never use a different realtor again!

We have nothing but great things so say about Dena and her team!!! Words can't express how smooth they made the process for us.

We had a great experience with Dena. She was awesome. She was always available. She always returned our calls and emails. She really made us feel confident that she would find us the perfect home. She did!

It's rare these days to work with someone that is as genuine as Dena. She really cares and obviously loves what she does. She was also very informative. We learned a lot from her and Prime Lending. I will definitely want her as my realtor again and will always recommend her. Dena Hinds ROCKS!

Dena was AWESOME! This was my first time ever selling a home. My dad passed and I inherited it. Dena was so compassionate in understanding my feelings selling my childhood home. She held my hand basically through the whole process and didn't make me feel stupid with the questions I had. I would definitely recommend Dena to anyone I know buying or selling a house.

We just sold a house and bought a new home with the help of our amazing Realtor, Dena Hinds. Dena was always available and quick to respond to our many questions. Dena gave us valuable insight and advice on how to make the process go as smooth as possible, finding the perfect home for our family. She also stayed on top of a fast paced closing process and made sure everything fell right into place. I will highly recommend her to everyone I know entering the home selling/buying process.

Dena Hinds is delightful! She is knowledgeable, energetic, and super responsive. Dena immediately put me at ease and told me just what I needed to do to sell my home quickly. I followed her instructions and my home was under contract the first day on the market. She's a pro!

We CANNOT SAY ENOUGH about Dena Hinds. She is not only our Realtor, we also consider her one of our closest friends!

We first met Dena back in 2011 when we moved from Buffalo, New York to Round Rock, Texas. She helped us build our first home.

Job loss was a life event that happened and we had to sell our home after three years. Regrettably, we were working with another Realtor (our only excuse is brain loss) and we ended up in another home that totally did NOT meet our needs or suit us well in any way. Even the home builder was a complete nightmare. In that instant, we knew we needed Dena's expert assistance to help sell after only six months. We are happy to say that we sold that home in a matter of weeks. We couldn't have done it without Dena!

We decided to take our time with our next decision and held off any plans for a year. Renting was an experience and we found out it isn't our thing. But it did teach us many lessons for growth.

Dena helped us again find the right builder, floor plan, and area to build a second time. She is ALWAYS nothing but professional, joy-filled, encouraging, patient, and authentic. She ALWAYS looks forward and ALWAYS has our best interest throughout any process. We feel comfortable trusting and knowing that she has our backs.

In short, we will NEVER look for another Realtor and we will ALWAYS refer her and Realty Austin. We are FOREVER grateful to have met special, one of a kind Dena Hinds.

We met Dena Hinds back in 2008 as first time home buyers. From the beginning she was very patient and understood the kind of buyers we wanted to be ( i.e. We will call you when we need you.). She was still present with her occasional updates and offer of her time to go out and look at some homes. She took us to look at a home we had seen previously online and decided we couldn't look past the paint on the walls! Wouldn't you know, we saw the potential and bought our first home. Fast forward 7 years, and again due to her occasional emails-we still had her contact information. She was excited to help us and navigated us through the first time seller experience. The people you work with make all the difference, and Dena made the whole process a great experience.

We are very pleased with Dena's service and would definitely refer her to family and friends. It has been a pleasure working with her through the whole process of selling and buying a house. She has exceeded our expectations.

Working with Dena Hinds of Realty Austin was one of the best decisions my wife and I made when we decided to sell our house in Round Rock and find a larger one in the area. Dena came through for us time and time again throughout the process. First, she brought a buyer for our house before it even officially hit the market, saving us both time and money. Then when we ran into a couple of issues in our inspection, her advice and contacts saved us thousands in potential expenditures. She was also invaluable in helping us find a new house and make a smooth transition. Always responsive and ready to go to bat for us, Dena is a gem. We would highly recommend her.

Cam S., Yelp Review

As a first time buyer, I was very apprehensive and anxious about the home buying process. Dena was referred to me, and I am so glad she was! She is so knowledgeable about the market, and she made me feel very comfortable throughout everything. She let me take my time looking and never made me feel pressured to make a decision. Working with her was a great experience, and I would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone!

M. Mokry

I have had the pleasure of working with Dena Hinds on more than one occasion. If and when I need a realtor, I would certainly consider her as my first option! Dena is more than a realtor. She has a unique ability to connect with her clients and match them with their perfect property. Dena makes herself available to her clients and tirelessly works to make sure her job is done well. I believe she considers her clients life-long connections. After closing on my properties, I considered her job done as my realtor. I was completely satisfied with her exemplary service; however, she was not done. Dena provided an unexpected follow-up connection. With no expectation of future business, she displayed a genuine concern for my satisfaction with my home and well-being. I strongly believe I was not a “special” client, but that she considers each of her clients to be special! It has been an honor to work with Dena. I cannot thank her enough!

Cathy West

I was blessed when a friend referred me to Dena – to sell my rental home in Austin – it had tenants for the past 10 yrs and the home was not in great shape – but Dena went to work and we sold it in 48 hours- I was SO hesitant to put it up for sale but the process was seamless! Even though there were tenant issues/ appraisal issues due to the home condition - Dena kept the process moving toward closing keeping a positive/professional demeanor throughout the process - I thank God for the new friend I have made and will always refer family and friends to Dena – Thanks Dena!

M. Guerra

Working with Dena has been fantastic! She went above and beyond in helping me purchase my first condo. I am single and self-employed and was worried that I'd never be approved for a new home. However, Dena wasn't afraid to take me on as a client. She connected me with an amazing mortgage lender who worked all the puzzle pieces together to get me approved. Dena worked directly with me and the lender to ensure all the necessary steps were being taken to get my perfect home. Her experience shines in the way she effortlessly manages each part of the home buying process! She does what she says she's going to do, when she says she's going to do it. She knows the community well and cares about each and every person she works with. I felt that Dena had my best interests in mind throughout the process and I highly recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell a home. Dena isn't just my realtor, she's now my friend. Thanks Dena!

Sunni Petty

Dena sold our house very quickly in a depressed market – She really got all the repairs done in record time so that we could put the house on the market. She has a lot of energy and dedication – I highly recommend her.

G. Staff

Always on the job! Quick response to any questions we had and always thinking about how to sell our house. Made us feel like we were her only clients!

M. Tope

Dena is an outstanding agent! We moved from Virginia after retiring from the Army and she went to great lengths to ensure we found the right house and at an excellent price ! Could not ask for anything else. She has also stayed in touch with local information. We highly recommend Dena.

User 7539031, Zillow Review

Dena is the best!! We LOVE everything she has done for us. We moved from Vail, AZ to Round Rock and she made this move so easy even from 900 miles away. She is so very personable and helpful, not pushy which we are thankful. You will not go wrong with her and can trust her to look out for your best interest.

W. Downs

Dena Hinds is such a wonderful real estate professional! When we had to relocate to RR from Dallas, Dena took us under her wing as she knew the area inside and out! She is such a kind, genuine, and hard-working individual. We truly felt like her ONLY clients as she worked tirelessly to help us find the perfect house that we now call HOME! I would certainly recommend her if you are looking for an honest real estate professional that has your best interest at heart and really knows the Central Texas area!

User: 4297201, Zillow Review

There are so many words to describe Dena Hinds. Dena is knowledgeable, respectful, dependable, focused, thorough and most of all professional. But if I had only one word to describe her, that word would be authentic. Dena gives so much of her time and shares so much of herself. She exudes the love and passion that she has for her clients and completely understands the real estate process from start to finish. While our family was building the dream of owning a new home in Texas (and moving from Buffalo NY) , we built a real friendship along the way. Dena is not only our realtor, she has become part of our family!


Dena is GREAT! She helped us with everything from finding a contractor to get our home ready to sell – up to the process of listing it ! She is very educated and knows central Texas area very well.

J. Calmer

Dena is an excellent real estate agent! Not only is she a very hard worker that will go to great lengths to make sure you find the home you are looking for, but she is also extremely knowledgeable, connected and professional while still being so much fun to work with. She genuinely cares and looks out for your best interest. She is completely trustworthy and someone that my husband and I will go back to when it’s time to sell the home she found for us.

M. Collins

Knowing myself, I knew finding the right Realtor would be key. I’m very attentive to detail, and OCD with transactions such as buying a home. Dena fell right into place and was able to go above and beyond my expectations. Being from the area she has an advantage in the market and can truly get the best deals possible. She kept the transaction moving at all times, if there was an issue she was MY agent/proxy and would contact whomever go keep things moving. Last but not least, my experience with other agents was that they wanted an agent contract before even discussing anything about my Real Estate interests. Dena consulted/worked with me before we every discussed an agent contract. This was very impressive and shows her passion for helping people.
