Rita Little

Rita Little


Austin native Rita Little has lived, worked, and played all over the great city of Austin. Having purchased and sold multiple properties of her own, in addition to those for numerous clients, she can personally relate to both the novice and seasoned investor. Her previous career in corporate accounting gives her a keen eye for detail when preparing offers and reviewing listings.

Rita became a Realtor to help make dreams come true. Always accessible and highly communicative, her goal is to provide exceptional and authentic service throughout your experience. She won’t rest until she sees you smile with satisfaction when the transaction is complete.

In her down time, Rita loves to spend time with loved ones, take walks and bike rides, and catch a yoga class when she can. Raised by parents who frequented Austin’s famous Armadillo World Headquarters, getting her live music fix is also a must.

Rita has been assisting me in a home search for quite some time. She stuck with me during my early "browsing" phase, she tirelessly worked to accommodate my schedule and show me everything I wanted to see, she did extensive research on the market for me to ensure I was getting a fair read on all prospects, she was a great communicator and negotiator, and she was a joy to work with. The value she added for me during my home search is immeasurable. I would give Rita 11 out of 10 stars, and I would recommend her to anyone looking for an agent to assist with a home purchase in the Austin area. I will definitely use her for all real estate transactions in Austin moving forward.

Rita Little and Realty Austin were very helpful when I was buying a house in Austin. Rita guided me throughout the entire process with patience, diligence, and knowledge. I highly recommend Rita and Realty Austin to anyone buying or selling a house.

I became frustrated after trying to look for a house on my own after about six months. I later found Rita Little and was so glad that she listened to what I had to say, where I wanted to live and how much money I want to spend on a home. Rita also gave me great ideas, showed me multiple homes and was very polite. She knew me very well and knew exactly what I wanted in a house in the desired location I wanted. Eleven months later, Rita found me the new home that I am currently living in now. Even though the home is 32 years old, it still feels new now that I'm having to bring it up to date. I'm very very happy I recommend Rita little to anybody, and I will tell everybody how good she is to take care of her customers.

There aren't enough words to describe how AWESOME Rita has been. She was there for us through the whole thing. Rita was very professional and provided great personalized service. I have dealt with many Realtors in my time but none have been as great as Rita. I highly recommend her.

I am a French woman from Paris whose lived in Southern California for three years. I wanted to buy a small property in Austin and not knowing the area, I contacted various real estate agencies on the web explaining my situation and my requests. Very quickly Rita Little stood out from the other agencies because of her kindness and her total involvement in search of the house. I want to say that I had a minimal budget compared to what is normal today in this area and Rita gave me the same attention as if I had a budget ten times higher. I went to Austin for a few days, and Rita adjusted her schedule and was available weekdays and weekends. She gave me plenty of time for visits, gave great advice and expertise. I found the property I was looking for, and Rita continued to accompany me at every step. I am a total stranger to real estate in Austin and America because real estate is entirely different than in France. It is with gratitude that I write this review for those who are looking for a condo or a house in Austin. Rita is an Austin native, a person with immense confidence, very pleasant and understands the needs of others without ever pushing for the purchase. What Rita wants more than anything is to provide quality to clients, and for us to be happy with our purchase.

We are extremely impressed with Rita's expertise and commitment in representing us in this real estate transaction. She was very professional and informative every step of the way as we went through the sale of our home. Rita represented Realty Austin and herself in an exemplary manner and is a great Realtor. I will highly recommend Rita to anyone in search of a real estate agent.

Rita Little helped us with the purchase of our first home. I couldn't have asked for a better Realtor! Rita answered all of our questions in a timely and professional manner. Rita was also so thoughtful and gave us many helpful tips. I am so grateful to Rita that she helped make our buying process so easy. I recommend Rita Little to anyone looking for a Realtor.

Rita was wonderful. She made the first-time home buying experience easy, straightforward, low pressure; all the things I could have hoped for. I am completely thrilled with the outcome and with the process.

I have nothing but praise to sing for Rita. She was diligent, informative, and patient. My wife and I are first time buyers, and regardless of the question we had, or the time we had it, Rita was always quick to respond and thorough in her explanations. She stayed on top of the paperwork as we moved forward with our purchased and kept us informed of any detail that required our attention. While I am sure she was handling other clients during her time with us, I felt like we were her ONLY clients. I will be recommending her as often as I am able.

There are some Realtors who do pretty much nothing and collect their commish for a few forms and opening a lockbox. Rita Little goes so beyond the scope and duty. I just spent the last several months working with her and literally memorizing the MLS. Rita not only had the patience of every Saint (I would name one but I don’t really know any) she never once pressured me to do anything, ever. In tough choice situations, she would matter of factly walk me through the pros and cons and in doing so every time she impressed me with how well she listened and understood my needs and what I was shopping for every single time. When it came time to negotiate she never responded with what would benefit her and her commish only what was within my best interest. 

I have purchased a bit of real estate and Rita is amazing! She was knowledgeable about the money, 1030 tax exchange, appraisals, all of it! Every single area of town she knew...I know because I looked EVERYWHERE! If there was something she didn’t know and needed to research I knew the answer as soon as she was on a desktop or heck she did it right there on her phone or iPad. Getting me the information I needed to make a smart choice was first and foremost and she always made me feel like a priority. 

This is the Realtor you want and need. I will not buy real estate without her, she is my go to and I can’t recommend her services enough.

Rita has been a pleasure to work with in both of our property purchases. Always available, answers questions promptly, drove a long distance to hike the property with my husband. She walks us through every step of the process. I have known Rita for years, and she has always been very professional.

Rita Little was fantastic. She went above and beyond in our home-buying process and dealt with a number of unexpected issues with great care. Would recommend her and use her again in the future!

Extraordinary best describes my recent experience in purchasing a house with the assistance of Rita Little. Rita, who grew up in Austin, has a wealth of information about all of the various neighborhoods and subdivisions of the Austin Metropolitan area. This is not my first rodeo!! I bought my first home here in 1970 and moved several times over the past 47 years. But even with my previous buying experience, Austin has changed so much and continues to do so almost daily, which required a great Realtor. Moving back to Austin from San Antonio after four years, I needed a knowledgeable, personable, patient, understanding, dedicated, supportive, and, well, easy to work with individual. In Rita Little, I found that person!! We drove from Kyle to Bastrop to Lockhart to Elgin to South Austin to East Austin to Cedar Creek and to Tucumcari. Rita was always ready to meet me on short notice for the next day’s adventure. Her communications were precise, understandable and prompt. Rita’s eye for assisting in evaluating the pluses and minuses of a particular property was invaluable. I can’t say enough about how incredibly and smoothly Rita and the staff, especially Leah Schimberg, at Realty Austin ushered me through the process of this home purchase from my offer to closing.

I really enjoyed working with Rita on this deal. She was active in my house hunt without being too pushy, and there was no point in the process where I didn't feel that she had my best interests in mind. Her knowledge of a variety of subjects; from house construction to contracts to price negotiations far exceeded my expectations. She's obviously taking the education part of the process seriously and seems genuinely interested in many different aspects of the trade. She's also super detailed oriented. My communications with her never felt scattered, in fact, it was the opposite. I felt like she was conscientiously referring to a checklist and making sure to do everything in the right order. Somehow in all of this, she made me feel like my house was the only thing she was working on or that mattered. Rita really listened to what I had to say during our first conversation, which is what ultimately helped me stay focused on my original intent. She found a home that I thought was perfect without even going to a showing. Naturally, my first thought was "I can't put an offer on a house sight unseen." Rita not only showed me how we could make it work by only risking an option fee, but she made me feel ok about the decision too. No pressure, just a "not a problem, we do this all the time." Rita somehow got a lot knocked off my original offer post inspections. I did not feel comfortable at all coming up with a new number to submit, and Rita totally handled the whole thing; once again far exceeding my expectations. I realize reducing the price reduces her commission, but apparently, a happy customer is far more important than a few extra bucks. I don't have a whole lot of experience in these kinds of deals, but I have a lot of experience with people. Not everyone would have had my back like that. I would not hesitate for one second to refer Rita Little to my friends and colleagues, and I would absolutely seek her services in the future should the need arise again.

Rita could not have done better work with us. She's been incredibly patient and helpful throughout the process, willing to answer all of our questions anytime we had them, and a fantastic advocate all the way. We are absolutely pleased and will happily pass her name along to anyone else looking to buy a house!

Rita was an absolute pleasure to work with. She came highly recommended by dear friends, and she did not disappoint. While our process of choosing a home was pretty quick, I felt really confident that Rita would handle all the details. She is polished, professional, yet warm and friendly. I felt at ease with her and felt that I could trust her. We were so pleased with every step of the process, including everyone that she recommended--we have really received stellar service from everyone, and that speaks highly to Rita's skills. We wouldn't hesitate to use her again, and will wholeheartedly recommend her to anyone we know who is looking for a realtor.

Rita helped us with the purchase of our new ranch land. She was a pleasure to work with. She was very professional and kept us informed every step of the way. Thank you Rita for all your hard work! Happy 2017!

I bought my home through Rita Little and had a fantastic experience. As a first-time home-buyer, I had no idea what to expect. She made the entire process effortless and a great experience. I have recommended Rita to friends and family.

We couldn't have been happier with Rita. She is very professional but laid back and easy to be with. She's very knowledgeable about the area, and I always felt very comfortable trusting her advice. She was always available to answer any questions and got back to our emails and texts almost instantly. We had some difficulties with our mortgage company, and she went above and beyond her job to stay on top of them and make sure they had everything done in time. My parents are moving to town, and we've already gotten them set up with Rita, and they will be looking at properties here next week! Thanks for everything!

My experience of buying a new home in Austin with Rita Little was as pleasant as it could possibly have been. Even though she was recommended by a highly reliable source, previous experiences with buying and selling homes in San Francisco, Fairfield County, Connecticut and Carson City, Nevada were so stressful I was reluctant to enter into the home buying experience again.

Her authentic concern to find the exact right house for me infused every step of this journey. My family and I agree that the service she provided was exceptional. She promptly returned all communication. Because this process can be stressful her natural low-key demeanor facilitated a purchase that was stress-free. She arranged absolutely everything with great attention to detail, professionalism, kindness and awareness of my price range.

Rita Little: Authentic. Professional. Low key.  Detail oriented.  Extraordinarily home buyer friendly!

Rita and Leah are THE BEST TEAM you could have on your side. My S.O. and I sold a duplex and bought two new houses all at once. No doubt stressful, right? Nope! Not with those two on your side!! I was given all the info I needed exactly before I needed it. And Rita was available every time I had a question.

Rita and Leah made my first home purchase as easy as it could be. They dealt with me as I panicked and stressed and worried, and kept the process going smoothly every step of the way. I am so glad to have had them as my partner in this transaction and would use them again in a heartbeat.

Just wanted to share my experience I had with my Realtor Rita Little. I wasn't sure how to go about selling my home, or that when I met Rita that she was going to be the one that could do it for me. Sure enough with her experience and professionalism that she showed me, my house was on the market one day and it went under contract. Keep up the good work - I would recommend her to anybody needing a good Realtor.

Rita was such a joy to work with! She made my first-time home buying experience a breeze. If you're in the market, reach out to Rita and the rest of the team -- they're the best!

Rita Little is the best realtor I've ever had! Even in an extreme time crunch, she made moving a seamless process that left me more than satisfied. She is a great choice for anyone looking to find their next dream home! Thanks, Rita!

As a first time home buyer, Rita Little and the team were amazing and invaluable in guiding me through the process! What normally would have been a stressful experience for anyone turned out to be surprisingly easy with their expertise.

Any concerns or questions I had through finding a home, making an offer, option periods, inspections, loan application, and closing were always addressed asap. Rita and the team really helped make this a comfortable experience and I will definitely recommend them to anyone in the market!

Rita was so patient during our whirlwind 2 days of house hunting. She dedicated the full 2 days we had in town to us and worked with us step by step as we completed our purchase remotely. We had 2 disappointing realtors in Louisiana and were pleased to have such a good experience here in Texas, we look forward to buying our next investment property with Rita!

Rita might be the best realtor we've ever had! Strongly recommend her services to anybody looking for a new home - my girlfriend and I have purchased/sold 3 homes over the past 4 years and we have never had such level of communication, follow and commitment to deadlines. I could spend 2 hours writing about Rita. Anyway, we have already referred somebody and we will be purchasing investment homes from these guys hopefully very soon.
