Silicon Hills: Is Austin the next Silicon Valley?
"I've bought multiple homes under various market dynamics... Howard & Stanek is by far the best realtors I've worked with. First we met to discuss my vision, my priorities, and my budget. Then she showed me a few homes to gauge my interest. After that, they were able to zero-in on perfect matches. When it was buying time, they knew exactly how much to offer, how to handle counters, and when to stop bargaining. All the lenders I got bids from agreed that they are the best negotiators in Austin and have the highest close rate. Andrew and Karin are the smartest, most straight-talking, and low-stress real estate professionals I've had the pleasure of working with."
"We received several recommendations for the Howard & Stanek Group. We were not disappointed. The team is very organized, familiar with the local market, and responsive. They were able to adjust ad-hoc to my changing demands. Being new to the area, I didn't know what to expect and Karin, Andrew and Renee helped me by adjusting our search criteria. They were completely dedicated to me for the weekend I visited. I have no experience with the local market, so I was glad they also helped me understand what to avoid. They did not try to push me into buying something that didn't match my needs, which I appreciate. I ended up finding a home and the team helped me negotiate pricing. Aside from the house hunting itself, everything was done remotely, and was quick and easy."
"As a new-comer to the home buying world, Andrew and Karin went well out the way to help me understand the process, connecting me with everyone I needed along the way and taking the time to bring me up to speed. He even took tax considerations into account, given my particular circumstances, to make sure I was making the best financial decision as possible. Great experience, will be selling / buying through them next time!"

"Andrew and Karin were great to work with. Caring, respectful, professional and knowledgeable of the current market. They always responded in a timely manner to my emails and phone calls and went the extra mile. I would highly recommend Howard Stanek if you are looking for an honest and savvy team. They will put your interests first."

"I was impressed by Andrew and Karins enthusiasm from the first time I met them. They are an energetic breath of fresh air. We had a very unusual circumstance that threw a curve ball every few days. They were in constant contact with all of us throughout this process and handled my barrage of texts promptly and courteously. At one point, when we had expected to have already closed, we were both out of the country and they were still in communication with me. Yes, working while on vacation. I could not recommend Howard & Stanek more. It was a pleasure working with you both. "

"Andrew and Karin were great to work with. Very professional and smart. We followed his advice and it worked out very well. We will definitely be calling him when we are looking to move again."

"Karin Howard and Andrew Stanek – the amazing Realtors! I would like to express my deep thanks and gratitude to you, for helping me buy my house in Texas! You are an amazing team! Within 3 months since I contacted you, I own a house in the Austin area, and it’s all thanks to your wonderful, dedicated, professional and personal service. You are truly an “A team”. The process was smooth thanks to your availability and responsiveness. More than once you promptly arranged for a video call to discuss and make decisions quickly. Your knowledge of the local market is invaluable. You helped me understand the market conditions and putting a winning offer in a very competitive market. Being away from the area was a challenge that you helped overcome by multiple channels of communication, even a final video for the walkthrough after the terrible storm in Texas. So again – thank you for everything, and I am looking forward to meeting you in Texas!"
