Polly Clarke was my Realtor, and she went above and beyond my expectations. I couldn't have asked for a more knowledgeable Realtor. I had very specific needs regarding the sale of my lot. Polly was able to look at what was available in the market and did a great job marketing my lot. In the end, she found me the perfect neighbors. She is warm and friendly, and we highly recommend her!

A friend recommended Polly Clarke when we were looking for a home almost two years ago. She worked her tail off to make us priority even though I'm sure she had many other clients she was working with. This summer we called on Polly again to help sell our condo. I was so impressed with how fast it sold and loved the website with all the professional pics for buyers to see. Polly is so personable and really knows her stuff!! She is definitely a top notch realtor who enjoys what she does and makes things happen for her clients. Thanks again Polly!! Sheri and Shan

My wife and I were new to Austin, and Polly took the time to show us a variety of both areas and neighborhoods as we were unsure of where to buy a home. She took the time to really get to know me and my wife and our lifestyle/personality/family to ensure that the area's she showed not only met our home criteria, but also our personality/family style. Polly is also very responsive during the entire process and made the process as easy as possible. We could not have had a better realtor and definitely recommend Polly (we will also be using Polly again).

My husband and I were 1st time homebuyers when we were working with Polly. With her help we found our home within a matter of days. She really listened to what we wanted, made sure to give us lots of choices that still fit in with out wants/needs list and respected our price range. A month later we were moving in. She made the entire process easy and very enjoyable (something I never thought possible). We love our home and are thrilled with Polly's work! Could not have been happier with our experience.

Polly is a consummate professional. I used Polly to buy and sell a home she knows Austin hands down and is excellent to provide advice and counsel. I would recommend her without reservation to anyone.

Polly was able to work thru a multitude of issues to market, obtain a qualified buyer and get a home sold for me. Her ability to communicate with other agents effectively generated a qualified contract that was professionally negotiated and met my needs.

I would highly recommend Polly as a knowledgeable and professional real estate agent with your best interest being her priority.

Thanks again Polly.

I have known Polly Clarke for 10 + years would (and have) highly recommended as a realtor. If you are an investor, she will keep you up to date with new ideas and opportunities to maximize your return. If you are looking for a home for your family, Polly will find the perfect house at the perfect price.

No one will work harder than Polly!

Polly didn't know us personally but she knew what a woman/wife/mother would want and had a good idea of what Shan and I needed for our family. She always made us feel like we were the only clients she had and seemed to know her stuff. We love our house and appreciate all her help.

Polly is a pleasure to work with. Home selling is always stressful, but Polly was thorough in her work, and gave sound advice. I would recommend her.

I would like to compliment and express my extreme gratitude for having a wonderful Realtor as in Polly Clarke. She was extremely knowledgeable and patient with me in selling my home as well as helping me find my new home. It is always most comforting to know that you can trust someone to do their best for you and to really feel like they are honest and looking out for your best interest. This can be a very stressful time and Polly helped make things stress-free. I will definitely use her again in the future and will always recommend her to anyone that I hear is looking to buy or sell a home. Thanks so much Polly!

I have worked with numerous different Real Estate Agents in my life through our rentals, purchases, and sales. I had always found them to be temporary but necessary. Then my wife and I found Polly Clarke. While her knowledge of her business and area was top notch, it was her genuine and dedicated interest in our family that blew us away. It was as if we were part of her own family. We continue to go to Polly for all of our Real Estate advice, and we recommend her without hesitation to everyone we care about. I don’t normally write testimonials about anything, but I would feel guilty if I kept this gem hidden!

Thank you Polly, for everything you have done, and continue to do for us!

Having been a real estate investor for nearly 30 years, I can tell you it’s not easy for me to find a real estate agent who I feel is capable of handling the minutia of the real estate transaction and who also “gets it” from an investment point of view.

When we decided to sell our waterfront property on Lake Travis, we knew we would need a special person to bring it to market. Because of its uniqueness and the underlying dynamics of the deal, we knew we needed someone that was not only a skilled real estate professional but one that could also think outside the box in regards to a property that was quite different than most.

I knew the lake market very well and had a pretty good idea of where the property needed to be priced but did not share my opinion with Polly. I simply asked her to do her homework and come up with her best estimate. Mine was $1,175,000, hers came in at $1,185,000. The home went on the market and within a month, we had a full priced offer and closed. The property was well within the flood plain and had several challenges to overcome that would have easily shaken a seasoned realtor. Polly handled them all with a cool professionalism that facilitated the deal and was instrumental in the successful closing of a complex transaction.

This degree of service and competence has instilled in my wife and I such a level of trust, satisfaction and high regard for Polly that we have already referred multiple friends to her, one of which is closing on a deal next week! Simply put, we cannot recommend Polly Clarke more highly.
