We worked with Ashley Brinkman, and she was wonderful! As first-time homebuyers, Ashley was very responsive to all of our questions and very professional. I would highly recommend her and Realty Austin.

My husband and I REALLY enjoyed working with Ashley Brinkman and her assistant, Hannah Papermaster, from Realty Austin. They both are very responsive, timely, hands-on, and professional. They were always on the ball, so we did not have to worry that something would fall through the cracks of the stressful home buying process. They are also very genuine and down to earth people which made it easy to work with them. Ashley helped to ease our concerns, got us the information we needed quickly, and even responded to late night texts and emails. She knows her stuff when it comes to real estate and the housing market, and she was able to explain it in a way that made sense to us as first time home buyers. Ashley even strongly suggested writing a letter to the sellers to accompany our offer which is ultimately what won us the bid. She even went to bat for us with the mortgage company when interest rates were spiking, and they were able to lower it to a very reasonable amount. We are grateful for all of the help, support, and comfort that we had working with Ashley, Hannah, and Realty Austin, and for the fact that they have committed to keeping in touch and making sure we are aware of post-moving ‘things to know’ that we would otherwise have no idea about. We highly recommend working with this group!

Ashley Brinkman is an excellent Realtor. My home was under contract in a very short amount of time, and the closing was seamless. I highly recommend Ashley as an agent. She knows her stuff!

Ashley was a pleasure to work with during our first-time home buying experience. Always responsive, she has an apparent dedication to excellence along with plenty of passion for her work, and her wealth of knowledge about the Austin market and nuances of the buying process was invaluable. Ashley is a friendly, genuine, and straightforward person who also has plenty of patience for people like myself who like to be thorough and fully informed. While we were looking at the “entry-level” home market, she made us feel just as important as a high-end buyer, and she clearly has a solid clientele list (for a good reason!). Her preparedness was instrumental in our closing, which went as planned and without surprises. After the sale, Ashley made it a point to check in and remain in touch as a resource for our questions. She provided several options for recommended contractors and agents to ease the transition into the new home, sent out tips and reminders throughout the year (such as tax time items), and even sent us delicious holiday treats. As long as we remain in the Austin market, Ashley will be our Realtor without question.

You are IN LUCK if you have Ashley Brinkman as your real estate agent! This girl gets things done! I remember meeting her for my first day of house hunting; she had printed out the listings of each property we were visiting and had planned what order we would see them in. By the last listing, I was disappointed that the houses I had been excited to see, were not what I expected in person. By casual conversation with another Realtor, we were directed down the street to an open house that I had not seen yet. Ashley was polite and professional as we entered my (now) future home! I can’t explain how personable Ashley is, and how easy to talk to. She understands the concerns and common questions of her buyers, as she has been through the same process herself. Ashley was honest about the pros and cons of the deal, what needed work, potential downsides, etc., and gave her honest opinion in every situation. She has your best interest in mind and wants to find you the perfect home! And now that I’ve closed, I feel like part of the Ashley Buyers Club, with rewards like her client appreciation parties, email reminders about tax benefits, and recommendations on local house cleaners, pest control, and locksmiths! Thanks for your continuing hard work Ashley!

Ashley is an amazing Realtor and a delightful person. We had the pleasure of having her work for us. Ashley did an incredible job representing both Katie and I; both in giving us information and in going to bat for us when it really counted. We cannot recommend Ashley enough. We will surely give as many referrals as we can.

I have only positive things to say about Ashley. She was on the ball with everything, especially when things got messy with the customer. Having bought two homes using two different agents, we now know how a good agent operates. If we ever purchase another home, we will definitely use Ashley again.

Ashley was very helpful and quick to get back with us on all items sent to her. I’m actually an on-site Sales Consultant with a builder and I already refer business to her. I will continue to send her folks.

First-time homebuyer + relocation from out-of-state = potential to be an absolutely terrifying process. Luckily, I had Ashley as my Realtor. She made buying a home easier than my last car purchase! Her deep knowledge of Austin was incredibly helpful to someone coming in without any (meaningful/relevant) experience of the city. And her guidance throughout the offer process was so amazing that by the time we got to closing, that panicky “oh my gosh why am I doing this?” feeling was completely gone. With her help, we were in the, “yeah, let’s do this!” mindset (even after the daunting task of signing literally thousands of pages of legalese). And beyond the fact that she is really spectacular at her job, her dedication to her clients goes beyond just making the sale. I was (sad and) alone, in a hotel room, on my birthday, in a new city, for a whole five minutes before a delightful box of cookies arrived from Ashley. I mentioned I really liked the flooring in part of the house we wanted, and a day later we had the exact flooring type & purchase location that Ashley had tracked down from the seller. We wanted to get some work done on the house and – you guessed it – we had a list of recommendations for contractors, roofers, painters, etc. from Ashley all ready to go. And I can name even more of those “above and beyond” type moments, but I think you get the picture. She’s amazing.

Ashley is amazing! While we had done a lot of research before moving here, she was the one that suggested the neighborhood we settled on, and her help throughout the process, in general, was priceless. She even covered small post-purchase details like contractor and pest control referrals, which we desperately needed since we were relocating from out of state and had no prior knowledge of local buyers would. My parents are planning to move to Austin in the next year, and I will definitely be referring them to her!
