Brian and Marianne are incredible. Their professionalism was the only reason my move was a success. I had to switch lenders and Brian and Marianne were able to help coordinate resources at all times and days. They made themselves available to me and my family to answer and support all of our issues. I will be recommending their services to anyone looking for homes in the Austin area. A+ team fully recommended!

She is very good at what she does and is personable. She works hard to get you into the house you want. She will work day and night for you and if you have any questions, she knows them or will find out for you fast and get back to you. We loved working with her and will use her again if we go sale or buy another house or land.


October 1 2018

Marianne was delightful to work with when we purchased our house. She responded immediately to all of our questions and she was always available. She was an excellent liaison between us and the mortgage broker and I would highly recommend her.

Marianne and Brian are amazing! They went above and beyond and made our first home buying experience a breeze. Their passion for their work is evident. They are extremely attentive, sweet, and want the best for their clients. I feel so lucky to have had them for my first home buying experience. I highly recommend them.

We are so happy to have worked with Brian Schaffer on the purchase of our home. He was exceptionally knowledgeable on the area we wanted to move to, and once we settled on the home, we wanted to put an offer in on he worked to help us get a fair price and negotiated on our behalf. He responded to many texts and phone calls in a timely manner and was EXCEPTIONAL at helping keep me calm and sane during the crazy business of selling our home and buying this one. We found the home we bought in the end of May, listed the home we sold early June, and completed closing on both 7/31. Brian’s wife Marianne also worked on our transactions on the paperwork side of things and was just as fantastic as getting things done, answering all our questions and making sure everything was in place for closings. She is truly a gem to work with too.


July 1 2018

Extremely responsive, great local knowledge, connections with all the people you need to get the home sale/purchase done smoothly and even great connections with local contractors. Made the process of purchasing a home remotely and relocating from another city as easy as possible. Cannot recommend highly enough.


May 1 2018

Communication is crucial in the home buying process, especially when you're relocating from another state. Brian made it easy by listening to our needs and scheduling showings for only the most appropriate homes during our brief visits to the Georgetown area. His follow up was never pushy and he always returned our calls quickly. Brian’s patience and diligence ultimately lead to our purchase of a home in Georgetown. Brian's wife, Marianne, handles the paperwork in a very efficient and competent manner. It's obvious that both Brian and Marianne enjoy their work and their outgoing personalities really help reduce the stress of home buying. My wife and I highly recommend you use Brian and Marianne as your realtor team in Austin.


March 1 2018

Brian was great, easy to get ahold of, fast, and efficient. Him and his wife helped us every step of the way through the home buying process. Couldn't have asked for better Realtors.


March 1 2018

Both Marianne and Brian made seeing, selecting, and purchasing our new house as easy as possible. Definitely a pleasure to work with them and I would recommend them.

Cedar Park Buyer

January 1 2018

Purchasing our first home could have been a very stressful process, but Marianne and her team bore the brunt of the burden so that we could enjoy the excitement of being first-time home buyers. Marianne's quick, knowledgeable responses to our questions made buying our house a breeze. She and her family even assembled a lovely basket of snacks and champagne to give to us at our closing appointment! I will definitely be recommending Marianne and Brian to anyone I know who's looking to purchase a home in Austin.


January 1 2018

I worked with Marianne last year and she was super helpful as I bought my first home. She has been responsive even post purchase as first home buyer questions have arisen! Buying a home can be a little scary and having a responsive trustworthy agent is a must. I recommend Marianne to be the person who guides you through this arduous process!

Austin Buyer

She was very helpful and answered all our questions. This was our first time buying a home so we were nervous about, well everything. It all worked better than we imagined because of the people we worked with.


December 1 2017

Marianne was such a pleasure to work with! She is quick to answer questions and get answers. Her team is a great mix of wonderfully knowledgeable professionals. Marianne and Brian are super helpful, even after we've purchased the home!

Round Rock Buyer

December 1 2017

Thank you so much to Marianne (and Brian and team) for their amazing work. She made what could have been a long a very confusing process much less stressful. Very personable, attentive, and responsive. None of our beginner questions were too small. Always reachable for questions and able to meet us the day & time we were available. Very organized and detailed. Truly wanted to help us find the right house. Highly recommend her and this team. Thank you again!


December 1 2017

If you are looking to purchase your home, especially when you are an out of towner and the first-time home buyer in Austin. We highly recommend Brian Schaffer. Brian has great knowledge of our entire home buying process. His team was also lovely to work with. His wife, Marianne, is a sweetheart. All throughout the negotiations and closing, they went above and beyond to make our real estate transactions flow smoothly through each step of the process. They remain dedicated and involved after the contract is signed, all the way to closing. Most of them walk away as soon as the ink is dry on the contract. They are very friendly and always willing to help in all ways possible. We couldn't have asked for a better realtor. A++!!

Marianne is wonderful! She is very quick to answer, or quickly get an answer, to any question you may have. I worked with her husband Brian as my Realtor. Marianne wrote my contract in such a way that benefited me in my purchase, acquired all appliances, even had the seller pay for my first year's home warranty! She is extremely knowledgeable, and her tenure in the real estate business really shows in the results. I wonder if these two ever sleep?! We are super happy, and this has been the most pleasant experience ever! I recommend Marianne and her team of experienced professionals to anyone that would like a smooth, enjoyable home buying process. They are there every step of the way, and then some!


November 1 2017

Marianne is such a pleasant and enthusiastic person to work with! I went through home search twice with her and had very specific criteria, but she patiently helped me find and see many properties. I hadn't done much research about all the steps that are involved in a home purchase but felt very comfortable because she's very knowledgeable shared all the information I could need. I would recommend her and work with her again!


October 1 2017

Loved working with this team! They were very knowledgeable, and helped us get into a home we love, negotiating with the seller and pushing to get us all the items on our punch list.


October 1 2017

Marianne was so helpful and informative! She was instrumental in our getting into our dream home. She works so well with others and was able to help out when we ran into a few obstacles. Definitely would recommend her.


September 1 2017

Brian was exceptional! This was my first house purchase but he helped me every step of the way and answered my insane amount of questions/e-mails. Brian and Marianne work very hard and are available around the clock. If I had a question, I could call or e-mail and I would get a response within minutes! I would highly recommend Brian if you are looking for another home and even more so if this is your first home ever and you know little (like I was).


June 1 2017

Marianne is a realtor who makes buying a home a much less stressful experience than it could be! We live in a time zone 5 hours earlier than Texas and she never woke us up, plus she worked late into her night, quickly answering emails after hours! She is extremely knowledgeable about the process and gave us answers very quickly and thoroughly. She worked well with the seller's broker and the title company. She was enthusiastic every step of the way, giving us directions of how to proceed and explanations. I highly recommend Marianne and I plan to engage her in any future real estate transactions!


May 1 2017

Marianne is the greatest. I have a busy schedule and she coordinated a time that was convenient for me. We looked at many homes in several weeks. She emailed me and kept me updated on new homes that were coming on the market. Very organized and meticulous. She was there from start to closing and always willing to help. I would recommend Marianne for all your real estate needs. You won't be disappointed.


April 1 2017

I am a first-time home buyer and she made this as easy as possible. I have relatives that had bought homes and were so stressed out with their Realtor. I am so happy that we went with Marianne and I would definitely recommend her to anyone.


March 1 2017

Marianne is helping us purchase a home from overseas. As stressful as purchasing a home can be, we are doing it from afar and have not seen the home in person! Marianne has been amazing and put us at ease with her responsiveness. She has sent us lots of photos of updates (we are purchasing a new home that's still being finished) and has been available to answer the million questions we have had throughout the process. Since we are in drastically different time zones, she has even been so kind to stay up late at night working and answering our calls and emails. She has also been professional and very patient with us and has worked with us to find the perfect home that we can live in for a few years then use as an investment property. I would not hesitate to recommend Marianne to anyone looking to purchase a home!


January 1 2016

Marianne was an absolute pleasure to work with!! Took time with us to show us several comps in our neighborhood. Explained how prices are based on price per square foot and how our home compares. She responded very quickly whenever my wife or I had a question via text, phone call or email even if it was after hours. We agreed on a list price and was met with a lot of showings within the week. Marianne helped us sell our home within the time frame that we wanted. We would highly recommend working with Marianne and wish her luck and many more successes with her R.E career!!


June 1 2015

Marianne is incredibly responsive, whether its a call at 8:30am or an email at 10pm she is always available and very helpful. I have nothing but positive experiences from working with her.


May 1 2015

We were very impressed with Marianne! We found her to be reliable, hard-working informative and fun to work with. Throughout the process, she always had our best interest in mind and we look forward to working with her again in the future. she was the best!!!

Cedar Park Buyer

Marianne helped us buy our first house. She walked us through every step of the process, and even now almost a year later, whenever I have the occasional question pop up, she is still there for us. She is all about making the customer comfortable and happy. Thank you Marianne! We look forward to working with you in the future!
