Silvia helped us through our first home purchase. She had our best interest at heart, was patient and professional, and was determined to help us over every hurdle! She was responsive to all our questions throughout the process, offered her advice, and helped us reach a deal. We are so grateful for all her hard work!

I bought a house from Silvia in 2015 and then sold one in 2017. She is very professional and is on top of everything all the time. Silvia and Taryn were always there when we had questions and always very professional. I was so impressed with Silvia, Taryn, the website, Realty Austin and how our sale was handled. I know I was a difficult client, I had too many sources telling me to price my property too high, but in the end, it all worked out and it’s all over with. I’m excited to move on.

Whether people are buying or selling, I’ll recommend the Realty Austin Team, Silvia, and Taryn. I appreciate all of their help, patience, and understanding with everything. They are not only great realtors, but they are great people. Very honest, understanding and caring.

I completed the move in January and all went smoothly. Silvia is a fount of information and kept me appraised sometimes 2-3 times/day depending on the rapidity of changes. She was also helpful in suggesting a course of action when I needed to make a decision. I will strongly recommend Realty Austin and Silvia to anyone I meet who is in the market to sell/buy a home.

Silvia Vandenberg did an outstanding job in helping us find a home in Sun City. We were from out-of-town, and we had to view as many resale homes as possible in a very short time. On three occasions Silvia was always upbeat, knowledgeable and organized and she showed us as many homes as possible in this short time frame. We enjoyed every minute of our home buying experience because of Silvia. When we decided to purchase a new build Silvia helped us with the walk through and closing and offered advice when needed because of her expertise in these areas. We strongly recommend Silvia Vandenberg as a knowledgeable, upbeat and great realtor to work with.

What a wonderful experience we had working with Silvia Vandenberg! She was very knowledgeable and easy to work with during the whole process. We were kept well informed and she followed through to completion all of the issues that arose. We would highly recommend using Silvia for any real estate transactions!

I want to thank Silvia Vandenberg for all she had done to find an investment property for me in such a short time frame. Being from Europe means I am not familiar with processes and procedures in this business section, so Silvia had to be patient and go extra lengths to make this work for me. Her job not only included finding the right property and all the steps from arranging inspections, negotiating with the seller to the final closure arrangements. Silvia continued working with me - and still does help me - finding a property management company, recommending service people, and finally finding the right tenants. Thanks again for your very professional help, Silvia!

We have known Silvia for more than three years now. We contacted her first when we moved from California to Texas and it is an extremely difficult job to find a good home since we did not have much knowledge of the market and the neighborhoods in Austin.

Silvia helped us find our first home here and we were quite impressed by her knowledge of real estate market, neighborhoods, and the home buying process. She also helped us close on our second home couple of months back and the whole process went through quite smoothly. In addition, she helped us find a renter for the home within no time.

We could not be happier with her professionalism, trustworthiness, quick responsiveness and the relationship which we have built with her. I would absolutely recommend Silvia to anyone who is looking to find a nice home in Austin.

It was definitely a pleasure having Silvia as our Realtor. This would be the 2nd time having Silvia guide us through the home buying/selling process. Silvia provided us with invaluable knowledge and guidance to navigate us through this process. There was never an instance in which my wife and I were not able to get a hold of her, whether it be a phone call, text or e-mail. We would definitely not hesitate to refer Silvia to anybody we know who is considering buying or selling a home. If we were ever to need a Realtor, there is no question as to who we would use.

I was very pleased with the service Silvia gave me. She answered all my questions and took care of any matters that came up. I felt I was in very capable hands with a very professional and knowledgeable agent. Taryn also went above and beyond. She went out to the house many times to check on matters and take pictures for me. She should be commended as well for a job well done.

We finally moved into our first home. Thank goodness for our Realtor Silvia Vandenburg. She was so helpful from start to finish. Silvia went above and beyond to get us the perfect home for our family. I would recommend Silvia to anyone and everyone looking to buy their perfect home. She exceeded our expectations and even went as far as meeting us late in the evening to view homes. We couldn't have found our house without her and we greatly appreciate her hard work and determination.

My husband and I recently moved into OUR FIRST HOME thanks to Realtor Silvia Vandenberg. For over two years she was EXTREMELY patient with our ridiculously narrow geographic search area. She was always respective of our budget and did an amazing job of finding options that we could afford, which in Austin's housing market is not an easy undertaking. We were SO picky, but she never gave up on us. I lost count of how many homes she showed us, but she did not let us down.

Silvia would consistently email or text us new home options as soon as they went on the market. She would recommend different areas of town and different builders that we would have never found on our own. We could always rely on her to give us an honest opinion regarding the home value and she saved us on a few occasions from purchasing "money pit" homes or homes that in the long run would not have met our needs. Silvia is extremely passionate and always very professional. She went out of her way to answer all our questions. As first time home buyers we appreciate that she was always available to help us every step of the way.

Without a doubt Silvia is a lifesaver. We highly recommend her...you need her as you Realtor!

Silvia Vandenberg of Realty Austin far exceeds any Realtor we have ever worked with. She has been amazing every step of the way, making our move from California to Texas as seamless as possible. Silvia's knowledge, promptness, and friendliness made the whole process so much less stressful. We literally feel like Silvia is almost family at this point and can not recommend her enough to anyone looking to buy, sell or rent a home. We will be referring everyone we can to Silvia.

We had a fantastic experience with Silvia when recently selling our home. We had actually worked with her previously when buying the same home. She handled everything beautifully and in such a manner that we were able to stay stress free. We were under a bit of a time crunch trying to avoid having to pay for the old house while paying for our new place and everything was done in about a month. I would highly recommend her for her personal service and demeanor.

Silvia is the absolute best. Even though selling is stressful, especially since we were under a time crunch (as we didn't want to be paying for new places and the old place at the same time), I never felt like I had anything to worry about. She took care of everything in such a way that it was easy for us to be at ease.

October 2015

My wife and I were so lucky to have Silvia Vandenberg represent us when selling our home. Silvia's knowledge of the Austin Real Estate Market, plus her personal care in making sure we felt comfortable throughout every step of the process exceeded all our expectations. As first-time home sellers, we were nervous about what we should list the house at and how quickly it would sell, given we had to move across the country very quickly. Silvia was spot on with pricing our home, and her ability to help steer us in the right direction with each decision made it a smooth process. Her calm, thoughtful, and educated approach make her the absolute best. We could not recommend her any more highly!

I am more than happy to provide feedback on Silvia's excellent representation of Odette and I through this home selling/purchasing process. Silvia assisted greatly in selling my home, and in finding our current one. We will also be relying on her when it's time to list Odette's house for sale once we're into our recently-purchased home.

Silvia was always available to assist, and was extremely responsive. That was our number one priority from the start, and Silvia and her team knocked it out of the park. She also did a great job in guiding us through this entire process, as there were several areas where we were outside of our knowledge base. She was always very proactive and clear in her communication, and we trusted her very much.

We could have not asked for anything more from her. We are both extremely satisfied, and I will always recommend her if there's ever anyone I know that is looking for a home.

There really aren’t words to express my gratitude and describe my pleasure of working with Sylvia. She was always on top of any and all situations that were encountered. When any obstacles appeared that caused us concern or anxiety, she kept us calm and reassured and found ways to make things happen. She went above and beyond what I have ever experienced with any previous relator I’ve used, and should the need arise, she is the only realtor I will ever work with. Realty Austin has a true treasure in Sylvia. She was an 11 on a scale of 1–10.

Silvia was the best. It was our first home but with a person like her, we wouldn't mind going through the process again. She made it seem very easy through the whole process and she cared and followed up with every single detail about our new home. One of the things that we love the most was that she kept us updated with everything and she never was scared to ask the builder any question that we might of had. We have recommended Silvia to a few friends. Thanks to Silvia we are homeowners and we can't thank her enough for showing us the community and most of all having the time no matter what to show us property all the time. She is great.

We worked with Silvia Vandenberg for our house purchase. We found her online through Realty Austin.

In summary, Silvia is outstanding, sincere, very hard working, and looks out for her clients. We were not living in Austin area when we were trying to buy a property here. It was a difficult task since all communication would happen over email, phone or video chat. Silvia was always available and open to communicate, provided her best guidance and most of all she turned out to be very trust worthy. She went above and beyond her role to help us buy and move into our new home. When I signed up with her, I could not have imagined that I would have such wonderful experience buying our first home. I would certainly recommend her and Realty Austin for home purchase, and I would do it for my own future needs.

I just can tell that Silvia is amazing. She inspires people to go ahead. And she looked for the very best people to help you in all ways. I will definitely recommend Silvia. Thank you very much Silvia and all your team.

I just bought a small farm in Leander, TX with the help of Silvia Vandenberg of Realty Austin. Our first contact was March 30th, and the papers were signed May 9th. See how quick this went through? First phase was to identify the right property. Silvia had to find out what I was looking for (how should I know what I want???). Then we spent a lot of time together visiting a number of places, and I am very grateful that Silvia pointed out positive as well as negative issues which I would most likely not have noticed. I am from Europe, so I am not at all familiar with the whole process. Silvia had helped me with making offers, arranging a number of inspections, and negotiating with the seller (a tough job, I can tell you!), all the way through the process until we met at the title company to sign the contract. Her knowledge and experience together with her professionalism and patience made it work. Thanks, Silvia! We stay in touch!

We thoroughly enjoyed working with Silvia Vandenberg. She was very helpful throughout the entire process of finding and buying a condo for our daughter near the UT campus. She took a personal interest in getting to know us. Silvia worked diligently to find a condo that fit our needs, and that came in well within the budget we set. She is genuine and really cares about her clients. We will definitely use her again for any real estate needs we have in the Austin area.

It was truly a pleasure to work with Silvia Vandenberg of Realty Austin. Silvia was a critical part in our transfer from Birmingham, AL to Austin, TX. She went beyond the call of duty to be available to show us properties each time we could get to Austin and we truly appreciate her. You're in good hands with Realty Austin.

I cannot articulate how amazing it was working with Silvia Vandenberg. Our family originally intended to purchase a home last April, when we decided to move to Round Rock from Anchorage, Alaska. Due to our ownership of other properties we were forced to either sell one or wait a year, we chose the latter.

During that year Silvia consistently kept us up to date on the market, called to make sure we were acclimating well and always made sure we felt comfortable asking for tips regarding the local business climate in Round Rock.

When the time finally came to make our purchase she not only made sure to get us into many homes but also made sure once we made a decision, that we as much information regarding the area, comps, etc.

My sister will be moving to Round Rock in a few months time and will be requesting that she work with Silvia.

As a former Realtor myself for Re/Max, I can attest to Silvia's value to your organization. We will be looking to pad our real estate portfolio and will absolutely be working with Silvia for each of those transactions.

Silvia was amazing and made the moving process from California to Texas much less stressful than it already was (and it was!). She was a true advocate for us as, the customers!

With Silvia's help I just closed on a condo, and she also sold my home in June 2013. Silvia has really been there for me. She was always quick to return phone calls/emails with all my numerous questions as I have not moved in 30 years! This has truly been a much easier experience than I ever imagined. I don't know how she remains so cheerful with how busy she is!

Karen K. Hale

Silvia was delightful to work with. She was patient with us during this process, provided invaluable insight, and was there for us whenever we needed her. I would definitely recommend her to any friends and family that are in the market for a home.

Aaron Salgado

My husband and I were impressed with Sylvia Vandenberg. She went above and beyond her duties as our agent. She even helped with the delivery of our car that was shipped at 10:30 PM. Thank you, Sylvia!!

Debra Allen, Facebook Review

I would highly recommend Silvia Vandenburg of Realty Austin. She worked with me for 4 months and was extremely patient, considerate and understanding of my needs. She was always professional yet personable and kept me abreast of what was going on. If it was not for her encouragement and diligence, I don't believe I would have made it to the end.

Michelle Pruneda, Facebook Review

I really enjoyed working with Silvia. She was very knowledgeable, helpful, and friendly. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell a house.

Janet Pyle

My wife Helen & I had the opportunity to meet Silvia Vandenberg. We had seen a house on the MLS that we liked. We lived in Harlingen, TX and had been looking for a house on the East side of I35 in Buda. The house that we settled for was much what we had been looking for and Silvia helped us negotiate and get the house for a price very close to our offer. Silvia went out of her way on many occasions when dealing with our loan broker. Needless to say it wasn't easy dealing long distance with the loan broker. We couldn't have put up with all the hassle had it not been for Silvia.

James Barbee, Facebook Review

We wholeheartedly recommend Silvia Vandenberg to anyone as a real estate agent.  She has been the best real estate by far that we have had over the years.  From the beginning of the search to after we moved in, she was very attentive and professional.  She responded promptly to all communications and was willing to show us houses on our schedule. She provided excellent input (very helpful) throughout the entire process. Our past experiences have been that we receive little support ad slow response time from after the offer has been put in. Silvia was a welcome change; she stayed in touch, making us aware of any steps we had to take, answered all the questions we had, and made sure we were taken care all the way through moving in (and willing to answer questions even after moving in!). Silvia showed us what a real estate agent could and should be.  We are thankful for such a positive experience.

Blair & Jochen Drewell

My Experience working with Silvia, was very professional.  I am new to the Austin area, and was living in an apartment on the southwest side.  Toward the end of my lease, I received an lease renewal stating what my new lease would go to if I decided to stay.  I quickly realized it would be more cost effective to be an home owner verses an tenant.  I contacted Silvia and she went to work right away in providing my home search needs.  She remained diligent throughout the whole process.  Within an month or two she had helped me find the home that I now have lived in for three months.  Silvia, remained by my side from the home search all way up to signing the paperwork at the closing table.  When I decide to sell and upgrade I will use Silvia Vandenberg as my listing agent, as well as her services in finding a new home.  Thank you.

Silvia Vandenberg helped us out with the purchase of our new home, she has become the realtor of our choice since she has worked with our family before and there is nothing to complain about. She was really helpful with any questions or suggestions related to real state. Everything went smoothly and I must say she truly loves her job, she is really dedicated to what she does. She always does whatever is best for the client and will confirm the best choices. I would recommend her work to anyone.

The Barron Family

Silvia was a great help, she was very patient with us, looking for a house can be very stressful, she was very professional on everything that we needed to know about the house we were looking at, even with the busy schedule she had, she always responded right away when we had any kind of questions, we will recommend her to anyone looking for a home, thank you again Silvia.

Richard Magallanez

My experience was 100% good. My realtor, Silvia Vandenberg, not only did an outstanding job on finding me my dream home at my dream price, she also convinced the GM to double my deco store incentive to $10,000. That was huge.

She went above and beyond what most Realtors would have done. She had a genuine interest in getting me into the right home, and not just any home that she could just get her commission on and walk away. Silvia really and truly, looked out for me as an individual, not just a client. Even after I closed on the home, Silva still calls and checks on me.
I highly recommend Silvia to my circle of friends that might looking to purchase or sell a home.

Heike Jennings

Due to Silvia's passion, knowledge, and genuine care for her client's interest, she was able to sell my duplex within a couple weeks, get a better price than I expected, and lower my anticipated stress level.

Michael Larson, Seller

Silvia was our representative when we bought our home in Highpointe three years ago. She was successful in getting the right price and was with us throughout the whole process. We would recommend her to anyone looking for their perfect home. She is the "true buyer's advocate".
