We worked with Moxie when looking for our home in the Austin area. Justine took us to many neighborhoods we didn’t even know existed and always showed us lots of great stuff. She was very patient with our questions about contracts and inspections, and in the end she helped us negotiate a great deal on a house we really, really love. We wholeheartedly recommend Justine and Mishell of Moxie: they’re no-nonsense, straightforward, hard-working agents who take their clients’ interests and concerns to heart!
As first-time homebuyers buying a house seemed like a scary process. Mishell and Justine, with their endless patience and low-pressure approach, made the whole experience pain-free. Their hard work and energetic responses to our daily questions exceeded our expectations. We probably wouldn’t have bought a house if it wasn’t for Justine and Mishell carefully guiding us through some stressful last-minute moments. These are not your average realtors. They’re down-to-earth people who work hard to understand their clients’ needs. We love our home and our neighborhood but if we ever decide to upgrade we will definitely be calling Moxie.
I lived in a declining neighborhood, and the final straw was when the cops shot an aggressive pit bull in my front yard in front of my kid. I’ve gotta go! Justine to the rescue! “OK. I want an awesome vintage house in a hip neighborhood for under $200k. NO granite or travertine!” What most realtors would say is “Yeah. Rub a Lamp.” She has her finger on the pulse of what’s cool out there. I would not trust such a big thing with anyone else, ever. Not only did she hook me up with an awesome mortgage company, she spent an entire year helping me find the perfect place. I saw so many houses and put in so many offers, changed my mind a couple of times, and she did not lose patience with me. When houses had multiple offers, she fought valiantly for me, sometimes spending an entire day submitting offers and countering. She worked so hard for me, and I am forever in her debt. I love my house! It is exactly what I wanted. Justine rules the Austin real estate world. I can’t wait to see what she can do on the seller’s side!
I own a house now that I LOVE! Even though I own a business, I was a first time home buyer, so everything was new and confusing. But my agent, Mishell Kneeland, was able to make everything clear — she went above and beyond in working with my schedule (I have a small child and I own a restaurant, so I work hours that are not the same as the bank/mortgage people, title companies, etc.), understanding my taste, and dealing with every aspect of the negotiations, so I didn’t have to. Sometimes I would change my mind about what I wanted — some days I felt like I wanted modern and new, and sometimes more traditional. Mishell happily showed me both kinds of houses, was patient when I wasn’t sure, and never made me feel like she just wanted to sell me something to be finished. I felt confident knowing that Mishell would work hard to get me the best house for my family and always protect my interests through every step. And even though I had to be the one to ultimately make the decisions about what houses to make offers on, Mishell offered opinions when I needed them that were based on her experience and how well she learned me and my needs. She also looked at the long term for each property we looked at and I know she’ll be there for me if I need her in the future. My financial situation was probably difficult, as I own a new business, so didn’t even have two years tax returns. Mishell found me a lender that was willing to work with my unusual situation, and made it work. I absolutely would recommend Moxie Realty to all my friends (and HAVE to my mother, a former real eastate agent herself, who is now using them). And you should use them, too!
