“Thank you Jody and the Habitat Hunter team. In today’s market finding the right home to lease can be a very difficult process. Thanks to Jody and her staff we are living in a beautiful town home in northwest Hills.  We had been looking for a couple of months and when this home came available, multiple appointments were made as well as offers.  Jody and our agent worked together to make this a wonderful experience for me and my family. I know that Jody and her team will do the same for you when leasing or buying your next home! Mark and Kirsten”

“I had Jody of Habitat Hunters as a landlord for three years.  Very reasonable, great house too.  We decided we wanted to purchase and called her.  I enjoyed the HH website that allowed us to sort through potential houses that she recommended, classify and notate them.  She read the feedback promptly and adjusted the recommendations.  She was responsive, available and pleasant to work with.  I am writing this from my bed in my new house I love.  Thanks Jody!”

“Jody at Habitat Hunters took on a big project with me and my store. My lease was almost up at my old location and we had specific things we were looking for in a store for our new location. This Lady came through with flying colors!!!! It took quite a while to find the right place for us, but she never gave up. Her company is top notch in my book! Whenever I need to move in the future….she definitely has my return business. If you want a job done right…This is the company to go with! Highly recommended!!!”

He also promptly answered any questions I had. He was also very helpful especially since it was during the stay-at-home order.”

“Bryan…You have made this journey such a remarkable experience! I can’t say enough good things about you. You’ve been there for us every step of the way throughput this process, even before we actually moved to Texas! You helped in finding our rental place when we finally arrived in Austin, helped us find our new home build site, and were there for us throughout the building of our new home. You answered all our questions and didn’t mind going through things until we REALLY understood everything. I always told you, ‘you’re stuck with us’ and here it goes again…Bryan, you’re stuck with us!”

“We couldn’t have chosen a better realtor in the greater Austin area! Moving from out of state has its own stresses, and buying a home sight unseen increases those. However, Melissa went above and beyond! She not only provided the most detailed showing I’ve ever been a part of, but she went above and beyond in getting us the Texas home of our dreams! She was always available, but was also extremely knowledgeable and was there for our family every single step of the way. She helped us tremendously, and took the stresses of an out of state move and purchase away. If you are searching for an agent, please stop and give Melissa a call!”

“We would highly recommend Travis, he went above and beyond. Travis was informed and very well educated on the different areas in and around Austin. He was always open and honest about every single property we viewed and made sure to arm us with all the relevant information from value, area, potential future home repairs, etc. He helped us buy our new home and was instrumental in selling our previous home, even during the Covid-19 pandemic. He was very professional and made sure to immediately create a virtual tour and set up precautions when we were not able to have an open house. Travis is always quick to fix a problem, for example, the movers damaged our drywall and he immediately helped get it fixed. He was always available for a call and help.”

“We have just sold our house in Austin and would like to recommend our Realtor, Pete Philips, of Habitat Hunters. Pete took care of everything for us; after checking the house, he advised us on last-minute repairs and even recommended reliable workmen who could do the work. We received an offer at our asking price on the first day the house was on the market and a couple of weeks later we had our closing. Throughout this time Pete kept in touch and was careful to observe all the Corona rules, so that we had no worries about getting ill. It was a great pleasure to work with Pete both for his pleasant manner and his expertise.”

“We were first time home buyers and Melissa Wile helped us every step of the way! She did a great job finding the home we closed on and was very responsive in answering all our questions and holding our hand through the entire process. We are now very happy and settled in our new home. Would highly recommend Melissa for your real estate needs! :)”

“We had a short time window to get into our new home and throughout the entire process Melissa Wile was so responsive, super caring and reliable. We wanted a new build but we needed to get in within 2 months and she helped us find our dream home within a couple days and get under contract. We were living in a different city then the house we built and she stood in the gap for us when we couldn’t be there and stayed in constant communication with the construction manager and everyone who was involved with our build. When things happened that were out of our control I was able to call Melissa and she was able to be a sounding board for us. She is now a part of our family and we would recommend her to anyone that we know, love and care about! Thank you Melissa!! You are awesome!”

“We used Jeff Plotkin and Habitat Hunters to find an apartment a few years ago and then used them again when we decided to buy in late 2020. Jeff is always very fast at replying to any question or request for help in any way. He understands and helped manage the closing process in a very professional manner.”

Gabriel not only listened to our needs and made sure they were met, but he was incredibly communicative and worked with our crazy schedule—he made sure we felt confident we would find something we loved even in the most maniacal of housing markets Austin has ever seen. We are now moving into a house in a nicer area than we planned And it’s under our budget! Use Gabriel.”

“My Realtor was Katherine Debski and I cannot recommend her highly enough. Katherine is the epitome of a professional, knowledgeable, customer oriented, champion for her client, more than any Realtor I have ever had the pleasure with whom to conduct business. Katherine was there for me through the entire process and if I ever decide to buy or sell another property, it will be Katherine and Habitat Hunters I turn to. If I could rate her 10-stars, I would!”

“Katherine was absolutely amazing! It took about 4 months from beginning our search to closing and Katherine helped us every step of the way. This included walkthroughs, putting out offers, getting passed up on our offers because of people putting out crazy offers, and even had our back with a pushy sales agent! She also helped us through some issues around our previous living arrangement and managed to find us an apartment on short notice a few months before we closed on our house. She really went above and beyond, I really can’t say enough nice things about Katherine and Habitat Hunters!”

“My wife and I are both Realtors, but we live out of town and listed our home with Jeff Plotkin. He is very knowledgeable about the market and recommended a higher list price than we thought possible, but we took his advice and the home sold for much higher than we expected and extremely quickly with no problems. Jeff was on top of things and very easy to reach. We highly recommend him.”

“Gabriel at Habitat Hunters made the home hunting experience so much less stressful than going it alone. I felt like my needs were taken into consideration greatly and knowing I had someone working for me to be an advocate when communicating with the leasing staff at potential residences, so I could focus on day-to-day life, made all the difference. Thanks!”
