It is hard to believe that Liz Newell has been in the real estate business for almost 25 years because she has the energy and commitment of a newbie going after her first sale... that is, until she handles the transaction with the skill and aplomb that only comes with being a seasoned veteran. Liz was our agent on two home purchases and she made them enjoyable and easy to navigate. Liz knows the right people to call for every service and expects and therefore gets the best from each plumber, contractor, inspector, etc. Liz is always accessible, tuned-in, and patient with her clients. Even months and years after the sale, she is always ready to offer her time and advice. I can't imagine going through the real estate process with a better agent.Lisa W.
Richard and I wanted to formally thank you for your excellent work as went through the home purchasing process. I know we were not the easiest clients, especially given the fact that we bought our home while we were in Europe. I also know that we would not have been comfortable making this kind of purchase overseas with any other agent. Your work ethic, attention to detail, meticulous follow through and persistence put my mind at ease as we worked through the close.
Your knowledge of the greater Austin area and your ability to help us sort through what makes each area unique was crucial for helping us make the right decision. We never felt any pressure to move in one direction or another, but we certainly appreciated your honest opinions about the benefits and drawbacks of each area and home.
My wife and I spent close to two years looking for a home in Austin prior to hiring Liz Newell as our agent. With the help of Liz’s commanding market knowledge, we were able to quickly narrow our search and ultimately found a home prior to its MLS at a price that we knew was below market. It was after execution of the contract, however, that Liz truly shined. Liz’s long standing relationships with pool, home, and septic system inspectors familiar with the neighborhood resulted in identification and quantification of every potential issue, and her negotiating skills ultimately resulted in a generous concession by the seller. Liz is an incredible person and a true professional, and I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a home in the Austin area. We also appreciated how you listened carefully and patiently as we were trying to decide what we wanted and where we wanted to live.
Overall we are extremely pleased with our home, our choice of location and how smoothly you made the stressful process of purchasing a home feel. We will definitely be recommending you to friends, colleagues and family going forward – so look for some business from us!Caroline & Richard R.
Liz has got to be, hands down, the best Realtor in the country. We have bought and sold a number of houses and never have we had such amazing service as we have with Liz. Buying a home, especially from a distance, is never easy, but Liz made it painless. She spent an entire day with us just to help us get to know the neighborhoods. She was always available and responsive. And she got us...it didn't take her long to understand what we wanted (even when we didn't know what we wanted!). And once we were under contract her and Katie were an amazing support helping us get done everything we needed from a long way away. Liz sets a new standard for Realtors and now that she has spoiled us, we wouldn't work with anyone else.Lisa & Elwyn H. (moved from NY to Austin in Summer 2016)
My husband and I have been investing in real estate in the Austin area since the 1990s. We have worked with many different real estate agents buying, selling, and leasing an array of properties. Never, in all these years, have we encountered the level of professionalism that we experienced from Liz and her team. They were extremely organized, communicated everything clearly and in a timely manner, and above all they took care of our property as if it were their own. We had all of our needs not only met, but anticipated down to the last detail. We will use Liz for all of our real estate needs from now on and will most definitely recommend her to all all family and friends.Jeff & Cecilia A.
Liz represented us as both a buyer and a seller’s agent. Liz not only listened to what we wanted/needed in a new house but also helped us think about what would be important to our family as our children our children grew up and went from elementary school to high school. Liz did an excellent job of only showing us houses that met most if not all of our wants and needs. As we looked at houses and she got more feedback, Liz continued to refine what was most important for us in a new home. In the end Liz found a wonderful house that has been perfect for our family. Liz continued to give us excellent guidance from making an offer through closing.
We were very worried about having to pay two mortgages waiting for our old house to sell. Liz gave us excellent advice on what we would need to do to sell our old house quickly. Liz’s advice was practical and cost effective. We acted on Liz’s recommendations with the result that the old house got lots of attention and sold fast. Following her guidance meant we never had to make two mortgage payments!
We have recommended Liz to family, friends and business associates. Everyone who has used Liz, has thanked us for recommending her.Michael S.
My husband and I hired Liz to be our Realtor to help us find our very first home. But she was way more than a "realtor." She was a friend, a support system, our advocate, a cheerleader. She went above and beyond for us. We ended up deciding to build a house. Once we selected the builder and lot, she could have been done. Afterall, she had done plenty by then. But she wasnt.. She went to our design appointments to help us select our upgrades, she saved all the emails from the builder and loan agent to make sure we didn't miss anything, she went to every single appointment we had with the loan officer and with the builder. Day or night she was always available to answer our questions. She made what could be a very confusing process for a first-time buyer, a smooth and almost easy process. She always gave 150%. She is amazing!Jackie P.
If you're considering selling or buying a home...then please look no further than Liz Newell. Liz has the knowledge and experience to effectively make things happen. The professional photographer that Liz uses really made a difference in marketing our home too. There is no other realtor to consider when buying or selling your home. We sold our Lakeway home in two days. Thanks again!!!Douglas H.
I just wanted to say thank you again for making the home buying process so smooth. I don't think it's possible for anyone to be more on top of it than you are - I knew that if I got the automated email and there was something worthwhile on it, I would have a text from you seconds later asking when I was free to see it! I think the best part of working with you was the relationships you built both with us and with the other realtors, who clearly wanted to work with you and put us on the inside track as a result. With your high level of personal touch and instant response time, you really made us feel like we were the only clients you had, when I know you are in high demand! As a first time home buyer, I also very much appreciate the time you took to thoroughly explain every part of the process and make sure that I understood what was happening.Erin R.

There’s a special talent in giving the perfect gift and you have it! This must also be part of the reason you’re the perfect person to whom one can entrust something as important as finding a home (especially a first home!).
Your upbeat outlook, sharp smarts, and kindness made this an adventure rather than a chore and we will always be grateful.Elynn R.
My wife and I wanted to thank you for making the home buying experience a positive one. You communicated with us effectively and always thoroughly answered all of our questions in a timely manner. We appreciate you making the journey out to the Leander and Cedar Park area as we know this isn't an easy trip, especially during rush hour. Your network of people not only helped us get our loan, but also helped with small details relating to purchasing the home. We felt like you were always on our side, and always put our best interests first. Thank you for everything, and we will be sure to provide your information to any future home buyers.Halimo & Jeff R.
Ronny and I placed our home on the market in Davenport Ranch and moved to Dallas. We were not able to attend to the home, but once a month. After six months on the market, we re-listed with Liz Newell. We were pleasantly surprised at how she took command from the start. She treated our home as if it were her own. Liz and her assistant, Katie, spent time in our house rearranging and making the house more inviting. They took accessories from Liz's home such as lamps and silver trays and placed them in strategic spots. She even bought plants for our screen porch and entry. When there was a freeze warning, she bought covers for the outside faucets and made sure the thermostat was adjusted. She constantly kept in contact with us, and relieved us from the anxiety of being in another city. Her knowledge of Davenport rivals no one and professionalism is impeccable. Liz went beyond just being our realtor, she also became our friend. I would highly recommend Liz to anyone.Debbie & Ronny L.
My husband and I are so grateful for the hard work Liz Newell and Katie Daniel put forth in finding us the right home so quickly. Liz was extremely helpful in explaining everything and really holding our hands through the whole process as we had just moved from Dallas. She was very knowledgeable and quick to respond every time. Katie did a great job keeping us all buttoned up with emails and scheduled with important dates to remember. We highly recommend Liz and although we hope to be in our new home a very long time, we will definitely use her again!Molly & Blair W.
We would like to thank you, Liz, for your excellent work with the sale of our house. Not only was your advice spot on regarding the home staging but you went above and beyond with our meetings prior to putting it on the market as well as your depth of knowledge helped us every step of the way. It was obvious that you are very experienced, which was exactly what we needed. Our house sold within a day and the whole process was stress free. We also enjoyed working with Katie and it's obvious that you run a very good operation in your office. Thank you again.Russell & Elaine D.
