Michelle Jones recently helped us buy our first home, and we had a great experience with her. As first-time home buyers, we did not know much about the process. She was very helpful in educating us on the different details and patiently answered all of our questions. Michelle was meticulous in pointing out the pros and cons of buying new versus old houses. Her expertise around home buying and timeliness were very impressive, and we would definitely recommend her to our friends.

Michelle helped with our first purchase, our near impossible sale, and now our new purchase. She is truly a joy to work with and such a professional. We could not have made this happen without Michelle. Thaddeus helped us as well; his comments and suggestions also gave us great peace of mind with this purchase.

We can't say enough wonderful things about Michelle and Thaddeus Jones. They are a great team and terrific at what they do. They are professional, responsive, patient, and very knowledgeable. They went above and beyond for us each step of the way and kept in constant communication throughout the process. My husband and I highly recommend them and will definitely reach out to them with any of our own home buying needs in the future.

Michelle is great to work with. She is very professional, competent and responsive. I will definitely recommend her to anyone I know who might be in the market for buying or selling in the Austin area. Michelle definitely exceeds expectations.

I've worked with Michelle twice now. Once to buy a home and once to sell a home. Both times have been great experiences. Why did I chose Michelle? It was simple. I wanted someone that was honest, that I could trust and someone that took my calls/emails/texts. That is Michelle Jones! She never once left me hanging on a question or a concern. To me that was priceless. Even though, we lived in the Austin area for 25 years (and more), Michelle knew this area and the market incredibly well. If I were to sell my home or buy another in the Austin area, there's only one person I'd ever chose, that's how great our experience was with Michelle and Thaddeus Jones. Thank you!

What am I going to say that everyone hasn't said. Michelle and Thaddeus, two competent, energetic, very competent, good looking realtors....they were so patient with my wife and I. We took 2 years to pick a house and they kept sending us more listings, showing us more houses until finally we made the move from the bay area of CA to Austin. I am forever grateful and if I can remember I will be sending them Christmas cards. Thanks!

With the help of Thaddeus and Michelle Jones, I was able to select and purchase a beautiful home with ease. They took time for me and anticipated each need or question. As a business person myself I was tremendously impressed with the professionalism, competency and overall likability of Michelle specifically. Her attention to detail, her quick response to all correspondence and her friendly but never pushy style made the difference for Realty Austin in my simply looking at houses to actually committing and buying a beautiful home in Westlake.

At every juncture she was there, steps ahead, ensuring that the process was smooth and worry free. They both took time to listen to my thoughts on locations and neighborhoods, offering valuable insight into the areas and guiding me in my search. I have heard so many horror stories about the home buying process but Michelle made it all feel easy and clear. I would work with her again in an instant and recommend her to anyone.

From one supervisor to another I feel like Realty Austin should know what a valuable colleague/employee that you have in Michelle Jones. In my field I work with highly skilled and educated professionals on a daily basis but only a handful out of hundreds over the past 10 years have proven as exceptional as Mrs. Jones.

Thank you Realty Austin for employing the Jones family team. Through Realty Austin I was able to become acquainted with them and ultimately purchase my new home and for that I am grateful.

Michelle and Thaddeus were exceptional. Michelle was always prompt and thinking ahead of all the questions we would have. She responded immediately to each email and there were many!!! Thaddeus was wonderful taking care of us at the closing. They are a wonderful team and we felt very fortunate to have them as our realtors. We expect to continue to stay in touch with them and should the opportunity arise to utilize their services in the future we would definitely jump at that chance.

Michele and Thaddeus Jones are the best. Michele helped us with the selling of our current home, as well as the purchase of our new one. She was so helpful on both sides of that. They were so on top of every detail, helping us all the way through. I would highly recommend them to anyone looking to buy or sell. These guys really know what they're doing, and really make going through a realtor worth it in every sense.

Michelle and Thaddeus Jones were a joy to work with and I would highly recommend both of them to a friend. Realty Austin is lucky to have them on your team.

Doug Arney

My wife and I could not be more pleased with regards to the professionalism, courtesy, and patience Michelle and Thad have shown toward us. I know that we are the type that need direction in matters such as selling/buying a home, and we were very well taken care of. If and when we ever are again involved in any real estate transaction, Michelle and Thad will be the first call. I would not hesitate to refer them to others.

Jack Hyatt

We have been very pleased to work with Thaddeus and Michelle Jones. They are a great team with a lot of experience in both Real Estate and Construction.

Michelle is quick to respond to calls or emails and very professional. Realty Austin has great tools and training for their agents. We highly recommend Realty Austin, and particularly, the Jones Team.

Marcia Kasson

I had a great experience working with Michelle Jones.  She was recommended to me by Lisa Muñoz, who has been my realtor in Austin for eight or nine years. Michelle did a great job of resetting my expectations and calculating an accurate listing price. I was also blown away by the professionalism of the marketing aspect provided by Realty Austin.

I will definitely be recommending Michelle to anyone I know buying or selling in the hill country near Austin. I also feel very good recommending Realty Austin, in general.

Ross Henderson

We consider ourselves to be very fortunate that we made the decision to have Realty Austin, specifically Michelle Jones represent us as both a seller's & buyer's agent. We originally selected another company/agent to sell our house in Driftwood, TX in 2011 when the market was saturated with listings and selling a home at appraised value was very challenging. After racking ups days on market due to being overpriced & from a lack of online marketing support, we had to make a change. We ran hundreds of online searches for listings in Austin and the surrounding hill country area to find the best company and agent to re-list our home. Realty Austin's listing agents consistently led the competition in our searches. Michelle's properties were photographed/marketed superior to any we came across. With the majority of buyers finding properties online, we believed online marketing and photographic representation were vital to selling our home. In the end, our buyers fell in love with our home while viewing the online virtual tour & we sold close to asking price shortly afterwards. During the closing process, the buyer's agent made numerous comments about Michelle's professionalism and follow through- recognition and praise from another experienced competing agent is a huge compliment.

We decided to buy a condo directly from a National builder in North Lakeway. Just before closing they informed us that the plat had a last minute revision and the property line was shifted which eliminated our lake view. We realized we made a mistake not to have Michelle represent us, we decided to walk away from this condo, & called Michelle immediately. We asked for her help finding us our new home in Lakeway. Although our budget made it a challenge to find a home in Rough Hollow, Michelle worked with our builder to find a great floor plan and ideal lot to maximize views- and stay within budget. Michelle's knowledge and negotiation skills a huge asset from start to finish! It’s not uncommon for builders to experience turnover in the sales departments, and within weeks before closing, our builder made several changes and Michelle stepped in quickly to take the lead with the builder's management, the Title Co, mortgage broker, etc. Michelle's tenacity insured all parties handled their business in order to close on time. Michelle even handled our final walk through with our builder on our behalf, made sure all repairs were completed, and took hundreds of photos, and posted the photos online in a virtual tour for our review. Even more impressive, Michelle helped set up a remote closing so our family could continue to enjoy our Florida vacation (in a vacation rental found on a website Michelle recommended).

If you are planning to buy, sell, or rent don't show up without Michelle representation, expertise, & counsel.

Anonymous, Yahoo! Review

We have had a wonderful experience with Michelle Jones and Realty Austin and would recommend you all in a heartbeat to all our friends and family! I have already gone ahead and posted a review on all of the links you listed in your email except for google since your link didn't seem to work. However, I wanted to send you an email too to let you know how lucky we felt to have Michelle as our realtor. She was always there to answer the many questions we had as first time home buyers. She walked us through all of the steps and helped us to find an amazing home with ease. We cannot thank her enough for all her help, hard work, kindness, and dedication. She was even answering our calls and emails the day after she had a baby! As I said above, we cannot say enough good things about Michelle and Realty Austin to others.

Amanda Davis

We can’t say enough superlatives about Michelle Jones. We had been trying to sell our home for well over a year. Michelle got it sold in like 11 days! And, a backup contract a few days later. And it wasn’t just about getting it sold. Michelle was on top of every aspect from listing, to marketing, to selling, closing and even verifying the funding. We didn’t have to worry about anything, Michelle proactively took care of it.

I used to conduct $5,000,000 to $10,000,000 real estate acquisitions for large publically traded companies and dealt with exceptionally competent real estate professionals. Michelle runs with the best of them!

Frank Oberlin

It has been a real pleasure working with Michelle.

I am very particular when it comes to this kind of investment. Michelle worked with me over a few months to find a great fit.

Michelle was a great consultant throughout the process.

It was a pleasure working with Michelle and I have no reservation recommending her in the future.

Regards, Paul Smith

She did a great job. She knew the area, what I was looking for and knew her stuff.

Dawn Gagnon

Michelle was outstanding and wonderful. Always available to answer any questions I might have. She guided me through the whole process of selling my home and purchasing the new one. She went above and beyond always looking out for my best interests. I consider Michelle a wonderful friend and she will definitely be my Agent for life!

Debbie Mitchell

Michelle was a very patient, competent and helpful agent at every turn of our transaction. She not only worked the sale details, but also assisted us with the collateral issues, such as HOA contacts, referrals to contractors, and getting move-in arrangements made. Throughout the time we worked with her, she was very proactive in finding listings for us to view and doing market analysis of the properties we were interest in viewing. We have bought and sold various properties and have dealt with many agents. I can confidently say she is the best we have ever dealt with and would heartily recommend her to any seller or buyer for their real estate needs.

Martha Camacho

Michelle was there every step of the way for me to guide me through the process and answer all my questions.

Debbie Mitchell

Four words to describe Michelle: On Top Of It! Michelle was extremely responsive throughout the entire home searching and closing process. Whenever we needed her help or expertise, she was available. I'm sure Michelle had other clients while she was working with us, but it did not seem that way. We felt like we were her only clients. We would definitely work with Michelle again and highly recommend her to anyone looking to purchase a home.

Joah & Helena Gonzalez

Michelle Jones was very patient, informative and knowledgeable throughout the process. Being a first-time homebuyer, I appreciated her input and advice even more.

Chris Sims

Michelle Jones is a consummate professional. As a first-time home-buyer who was new to Austin, I found Michelle impressively knowledgeable, patient and supportive over the 4+ month process it took me to find a neighborhood and home that suited me. I'd enthusiastically recommend Michelle as my agent of choice to my friends in favorite here in Austin and back in San Francisco, and look forward to working with her again in the future.

Billy Bicket

Michelle always gives personalized attention and makes us feel as though we are her only clients. She's handles things without us even having to ask!

John and Denise McRae

Michelle is a terrific, sincere and delightful person to work with. She made the entire first time home buyer experience smooth and trouble-free. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a good realtor.

First-Time Homebuyer

Michelle was great and more than met our expectations. Thank you!

Homebuyer

Michelle was an excellent agent who patiently supported our decision to sell and helped us accomplish our sale much more quickly than we had anticipated. Thank you, Michelle!

John Robinson

Michelle was an outstanding source of information and guidance throughout my entire home-buying process. I searched for a home in the central Texas area for over 18 months. During that time, I looked at homes in Austin, Round Rock, Pflugerville, Leander, and Buda. Michelle was able to arrange tours of selected homes in short periods of time and provide me with valuable insight on each home. Once I found the home I wanted to purchase, Michelle was an invaluable asset and great source of information for me. This was my first home purchase, and Michelle took the time to explain everything to me and answer any questions I had to ensure I understood exactly what was going on. She responded to my questions in a very timely manner, even during the days surrounding Christmas. Michelle also excelled in coordinating everything between the selling agent, the mortgage company, and everyone else involved in the home-buying process. Throughout the process, I knew Michelle had everything under control, which allowed me to focus on other things. I feel fortunate to have had Michelle as my realtor. She is very knowledgeable and I will definitely refer to any friends or family that are looking for a realtor.

Mark Staedtler

Michelle was great! We worked with Michelle for approximately one year trying to find a home. Even when I thought it would never happen, Michelle remained positive and supportive and just keep working toward our goal. We eventually found the perfect home.

Nick Young

Michelle was absolutely awesome! She couldn't have prvided a better service. She was very professional yet she allowed her wonderful personality to shine through! Michelle was a joy to work with. She was very supportive and willing to go that extra mile.

Bill and Tammi Putnam

I apprecaited Michelle's help so much. We had never sold a home before and we did not anything about the processes. She helped me through email even when I was out of the country.

Carla Acord

Michelle Jones was always availalble and had all the answers and service when we needed something. She made a potentially stressful process actually enjoyable. We will definitely continue to use her in the future and will recommend her to others without reservation. A+ service all the way!

Jason and Melissa Hinderer

Michelle worked with us both online and in person to make our home search and relocation as simple as possible.

Jennifer Murphy

We have never had such wonderful service from a Realtor or realty office! Everything was taken care of for us!

Denise McRae

We met Michelle Jones via the internet in Dec 2005. We were looking at moving from Phoenix to Texas. From the moment we met Michelle in person, we felt she listened to exactly what we said, she asked lots of questions that would help her in locating and sorting out items we did or did not want, and was just a pleasure to be around. I don?t think Michelles forte is Texas ranch property, but that is what we were looking for and she was perfect. She made calls on fencing, barns and anything we might need some information on, (and on items we had not even thought of). She was an expert from the viewing to the closing, and was involved in every step thru the way. I would highly recommend Michelle Jones to anyone that is looking to buy or sell a home.

Ron and Debbie Parmely

Thanks for being so great. This is a first time experience for both my husband and I and we both have agreed on how awesome you have been. Thanks for everything.

B.G., Austin, Texas

What I look for in a real estate agent is the ability to really listen to what I say and understand what I am looking for, and to show me only those properties that fall into my criteria. Michelle certainly fit the bill. Unlike other agents whom I have dealt with in the past, Michelle never tried to sell me a property. Additionally, she was always well prepared, organized and on time, and was always very pleasant to deal with, in spite of the fact that scheduling our meetings was sometimes challenging since I live in Houston and was looking for property around Austin. Michelle was also very responsive, always available and really on the ball during the negotiation and closing process. I would definitely recommend her to my friends and family.

D.U., Houston, TX

Dear Michelle, Jesse and I would like to thank you for your tireless efforts in our search for a home in Austin. There were so many things to worry about since we were moving from out of state, but we knew that we could count on you and that made buying a house much less stressful. We both appreciated that you were patient and didn't mind showing us all over Austin before we decided where we wanted to settle. We feel like we found the best neighborhood for us and are excited to move in to our new home.

I thought Michelle was very helpful. She contacted me quickly and has not been pushy. I appreciate that. My wife and I have been looking for over two years, probably the most ever for a client of Michelle's, but she never gave up on us. She was always there when we were ready to look at a house, and was just awesome!! When we are ready to move again, we will definitely be calling Michelle, and will recommend her to anyone we know that is looking.

I miss Michelle! She was like a good friend helping us through a big life decision. She would immediately respond to any concerns or questions that we had. From our first meeting regarding our listing she was very attentive. She had preliminary flyers in our yard within a couple of hours. She always promptly answered her phone or returned our calls and emails. She carried herself in a manner that I would consider to be highly ethical while still being a loyal advocate for us. Michelle is very knowledgeable and educated in her field, she never waivered when explaining legal terminology or situations to us. She was always approachable and professional and had a great sense of humor. I know that we had to be annoying at those high-stress times, but she never let us feel that way. We felt like we were very high on her list of priorities. She was wonderful with our 2 young girls and my 3 year old still asks about 'Miss Michelle'. We have and will recommend Michelle Jones to any of our friends and family without hesitation.

Mari Andrade

Of the agents I have been with in New Braunfels, Canyon Lake and now Wimberley. Michelle is by far the best!!!!!!!!
