Happy Clients

We received 3 quality references from your team, however after completing our research, one stood “head and shoulders” above the others and was the right fit for our Mom. We selected The Friend Team, Janette Friend-Harrington and Doug Harrington of eXp Realty, LLC in Austin, TX. Our Mom is elderly with some recent health problems and my wife and I are helping her relocate to our home in Virginia, so that we can help take better care of her. Janette has been fantastic thus far, with the preliminary visit to review Mom’s home and the following visit to sign the listing agreement. She has been an excellent communicator and coordinator, while keeping our Mom, my wife and I thoroughly informed throughout the process thus far. Our Mom was overwhelmed with the prospect of selling her home before we found Janette. She is now feeling much better with it all and actually having fun in the process. Thanks to this fantastic ELP. Janette has proven to be a compassionate and consummate professional thus far.”

“Truly the best experience! I would recommend Janette and Doug to any first time home buyer in Austin. They are prompt, knowledgeable and not at all pushy when it comes to finding the right home for you. My fiancé and I truly knew nothing about the home search and buying process, but they led us through it seamlessly and answered all questions. We looked at many homes and Doug/Janette were both quick to voice concerns if they saw anything worrisome. If you are buying a home – you can count on Janette and Doug!!”
