We started working with Wendy Sutherland after we had already selected a home to make an offer on. While we thought things would go smoothly, a lot of problems cropped up that Wendy helped us get through: the pricing negotiation, including surprise multiple offers and a surprise (temporary) reneging on the seller's part; surprise difficulties with the mortgage; surprise zoning challenges; and surprise problems with fire insurance. Through it all, Wendy provided great perspective and hustle along with many important introductions. We are now thrilled to live in a beautiful, unique property that we might not otherwise be in.

I highly recommend Wendy Sutherland! She is both professional and experienced and at the same time friendly and fun to work with. When the house we were purchasing had multiple offers, we relied on Wendy’s experience & skill, and we got our house! We were grateful we had Wendy on our side to walk us through the tricky negotiation process. She was also ready and able to answer our multiple questions that came up during the inspection and closing. Wendy was very easy to communicate with and made an often stressful & overwhelming process so much more manageable. Thanks Wendy for helping us buy our dream house! We couldn’t be happier!

We used Realty Austin for our very first home purchase and will definitely be using them for our next house! Wendy Sutherland is the woman to ask for! She helped us through every step, educated us on the small details of picking the right house and was determined to find a home we love and could afford. She is ever professional and quick to get back to you when you have questions. We are already telling our friends who are looking to buy a house about her and what a wonderful job she did for us!

Wendy Sutherland did an exceptional job helping us with our home search. She navigated us through difficult contract negotiations and insisted that we not settle for something that didn't fit our needs perfectly. She was patient with us and made us her first priority. We would recommend Wendy to anyone looking to buy a home in the Austin area.

Wendy Sutherland didn't just help us buy our first home in Austin, she guided us through the ins and outs of the unique, fast paced environment that is the Austin real estate market at this time. Her knowledge of the area, the market, and overall buying strategy was invaluable, meaning I can't even begin to tell you what a great value it was to us. No matter what day of the week or where she was, she was responsive and made sure we were taken care of. Above all of this, she stayed calm and reassuring when things got a little dicey. I recommend her without reservation and will work with her for all future real estate transactions.

My experience with Wendy Sutherland was great. She helped me both on the purchase and sale of a condominium in West Campus. Wendy is friendly, diligent, and professional. In addition to being very knowledgeable about the sales process, she was also helpful in referring me to qualified inspectors and contractors. I would highly recommend Wendy to anyone who is looking for a real estate agent.

I worked with Wendy Wheeler Sutherland to acquire two rental houses. The deals started to go south over the appraisals, which dragged down the financing. Wendy really saved the day. She brought in professionals to sort out the appraisal problems and financing process and got the deals closed in record time. Without Wendy the deals would not have closed, I would have potentially been sued by one or more sellers, and they would have been within their rights to do so. Thanks Wendy!

Our family relocated to Austin in June of this year, Wendy Sutherland was absolutely key in helping us buy our dream home. We were fortunate to find Wendy and Realty Austin through her previous reviews online. Wendy had patience, knowledge and was readily available anytime we needed her. She worked with us for over a year, always open on short notice to make sure we were able to view homes on our time. We were so happy working with Wendy Sutherland. She loves Austin, the community and had nothing but our best interest in mind to make sure we were happy.

It was a pleasure working with Wendy! She made this mess of moving go so smoothly for our family. She has a very positive and professional attitude, and we have already been putting her name in ears of our friends, family and co-workers for their upcoming or next move. I can't say enough on her attentiveness towards our needs, questions and concerns on any aspect of they move. Always on time, does an outstanding job, and would definitely be my first choice on my next move if that was to ever come up! Our family can't thank her enough, for finding our dream home. She knew what we wanted, from the location to the school district and took that into consideration when looking for us. We didn't always have time to look, so in a way, we depended on her to keep her eyes open for anything that fits our needs and she did just that!.. The house she found us, IS my wife's dream home, and without her, none of this would be happening.. Thank you, and Thank her the most for making our dreams come true.

Wendy was absolutely wonderful to work with, as evidenced by this being the 3rd time I've worked with her (2 home purchases, 1 sale). She worked tirelessly for me with a particularly challenging listing agent and an extremely nitpicky, mean, thorough, client. :) She always answered my questions promptly and completely and went to bat for me several times with the listing agent and seller to make sure the house was just to my liking. She's even followed up since the move to make sure I'm happy in my new home, which I very much am. I would highly recommend Wendy to others!

Wendy did a great job.

My husband and I wanted to take this opportunity to say how wonderful of a home buying experience we had with our Realtor, Wendy Wheeler Sutherland. Wendy was simply amazing during the entire process! As first time home buyers, we did not know what to expect and were extremely impressed with Wendy's counsel, candor, professionalism, hustle (at even late hours), exuberance, and patience with us. We knew we were in very competent hands in what is typically a very stressful time, and we always felt like we were her only clients and that she would go the extra mile to ensure we were comfortable every step of the way. Wendy went above and beyond to ensure we received the highest level of customer service possible - even going so far as personally writing a letter to the sellers telling them our story. We feel that her advice on the offer amount, in combination with her thoughtful letter, resulted in our offer being selected among 8 other offers on our house. We asked many questions and always felt that they were welcome and were answered in a thorough, competent, and prompt manner. We are convinced that we would not be in our home today had it not been for Wendy’s guidance and efforts. We would, without question, recommend Wendy to our friends and families.

My partner and I recently purchased a home with the help of the astoundingly competent Wendy Sutherland. Wendy helped us navigate and complete a home search in Austin while we were living in California. She made herself available at times that were convenient for us, and she was always responsive to questions. She was good company during a hectic day of visiting properties. We had one weekend in Austin to view prospective homes, and Wendy helped us line up excellent options chosen to meet our expectations. Prior to the trip she helped us understand the diverse neighborhoods, and made us confident in our search location criteria. An interactive mapping program she used during a Sunday night conference call was a great assistance with helping us understand the many neighborhoods in Austin. Wendy was persistent with moving the process along with the property owner, the home owner's association, and coordinating with the current tenant. We have worked with a number of other realtors in the past. Working with Wendy was refreshing in her professionalism, dedication, and friendliness.

Two thumbs way up for Wendy Sutherland. She is truly professional and a good friend!

Dennis Karbach, Facebook Review

Wendy Sutherland was terrific. She listened to my preferences and gave me very accurate information about the different areas of Austin with regards to commuting and livability. She gave me very good information about the comps for the house I found, and although I went a little above the average comp value, she assured me I was getting a good house for the price.

And, she wasn’t gone after the sale. She gave me contact information for people I may need to help with the yardwork and house stuff. She still checks in now and then just to see how I’m doing. I would recommend Wendy to my friends, and I would use her again for my real estate needs.

Carla Pealer

We love Wendy Sutherland! We live out of state and Wendy is our eyes and ears for the Austin market and has been for three real estate transactions!

Wendy is professional, delivers, is a great communicator, extremely responsive and a generally nice person! It is always a joy and pleasure to work with her and we would never use anyone else unless she got out of the business!

I would recommend working with Wendy. She worked extremely hard helping us find the perfect home. She had great market knowledge and, in fact, helped us find a home that ended up selling below appraised value in a great location. She was in constant contact with us from viewing homes to ultimately closing on what we consider a great deal. We enjoyed the process from start to finish.

Wendy successfully sold our condo at a price we were happy with (in a down market) and helped us find a home that fits us perfectly. We were very pleased with her professionalism, knowledge, and persistence.

Two years ago my husband and I decided to move from Maryland to Austin, Texas. As you can imagine, relocating half way across the country is a daunting task. Wendy had come highly recommended by our relatives in Austin and so on a visit 2 years ago we met. Though we weren't ready to move at that point, Wendy generously spent a lot of time with us, and with her expert knowledge of neighborhoods, locations, and house value, we found a house we loved. She was very patient and thorough in helping us understand the difference between real estate laws in Maryland and Texas. In addition, Wendy was extremely helpful in negotiating the bid on this house since there were 2 other interested parties. Once we had the contract on the house, Wendy became instrumental is assisting us to do a rent-back contract with the (now previous) owners, and looked out for our best interests throughout that process. Settlement was long distance, and again we couldn't have done it without her. I can't recommend Wendy Sutherland highly enough.

Wendy is the consummate professional with a high level of knowledge in the Austin real estate market. I interviewed several agents before choosing her. The reason I did choose her is she came to our initial meeting completely prepared. She had comps in the area, knew everything about surrounding properties, and she asked about my priorities. She understood who the right buyer for the property would be and found potential buyers who met that profile. Not surprisingly, that's the type of person that purchased the property. She was so adept at guiding me through the process that it was the most painless real estate transaction I've ever been through!
