What My Clients Say About Me
From the start we found Barbara to be approachable, knowledgeable, professional, and personal. She helped us with any questions we had. Barbara has a way of working well with people and stays engaged through the process. She has provided outstanding service from the very beginning to the final transaction of selling our home. She has also been extremely helpful with the home-buying process. We would be glad to work with Barbara again in the future. We couldn’t recommend her highly enough! ♥
- The Weston Family
Barbara Giglio was outstanding. I do not live in Texas and am a Real Estate Broker in Montana. She was my Realtor to sell my brother's house. She helped me with a contractor, painter, window washer, cleaner, carpeting, yard work, and she sold the house in less than one day! Thank You for all your assistance and guidance!
- The Stein Family
We could not have had a better experience. Barbra Giglio was amazing! From the moment we met her, we knew we made a great decision. Barbra was knowledgeable, friendly, and patient. She clearly explained the steps we would be taking to sell our home and communicated with us timely along the way. Barbara’s recommendations resulted in us selling our home in one day, and the offer was well over the listing price. We have already closed, and Barbra was there to ensure our interests were protected. And speaking of protection, there was a day when Barbra was visiting, and we accidentally let our little dog escape out the front door. Barbra drove her car around the neighborhood to help us find her! We got her back safe and sound. Barbra will also be assisting us with the purchase of our new home, which is currently under construction. We are confident that the second part of our experience will be as smooth as the first. We will definitely reach out to Barbra for future needs and will recommend her to others.
- The Bressette Family
We really can’t thank Barbara enough for her help and guidance during our recent move during COVID-19! She was so attentive and understanding about our concerns during a really difficult time. Her level of professionalism and attention to detail made things go quickly and easily for both families. Not only did she sell our house in several days but she spent many hours driving us around to find a rental while our new home is being built! She is honest and truly cares about her customers. We loved working with her and would highly recommend her to anyone!
- The Owen Family
Barbara has been outstanding throughout the entire process. She is very knowledgeable and addressed all of our questions at any point in the day, including evenings/weekends. With selling our home and going through a very stressful build, Barbara was always there to calm us down and to remind us that we were building our dream home. Barbara exceeded our exceptions, and we plan to use her and Realty Austin for all our future real estate needs. We plan to recommend Realty Austin and her to our friends and colleagues. Job well done! We got our dream home. Thank you.
- The Durham Family
Barb is more than a Realtor; she is a friend! She goes above and beyond to make your experience enjoyable and is available pretty much 24/7! She even performs duties outside of her job title. Like coming and unlocking our house with the lockbox when my one-year-old locked me out of the house! She is very knowledgeable and will go to bat for you! Cannot thank her enough for helping us find our forever home and sell our starter home in a weekend!
- The Fugate Family
Barbara was referred to us by a coworker, and as I soon as I read her treatise on Hobbit-holes, I knew we would be a great fit, and I was right. She was incredibly easy to work with. She knew the market incredibly well, was able to answer our questions very quickly if she did not already know what we needed, and gave great advice. I studied this area intensely for many years and was sure I would not be able to buy in a certain area and, therefore, did not mention it in my list of areas. She was able to read between the lines and pull a listing that ended up meeting all of our needs in our price range. She was prepared with referrals for every aspect of the process, and every one of them worked out great. Most of all, I appreciated how genuine she was. She never appeared over-eager for us to make a decision and therefore make her commission (though it turned out I did rather quickly); she was just there to assist us with our big decision. She obviously is in this business because she genuinely enjoys it, it is not a means to an end, and her clients are not a means to an end. I absolutely would use her again and recommend her to all my friends.
- The Wiggins Family
We were introduced to Barbara Giglio through our daughter after Barbara had shown them several properties and helped my son-in-law find a new business address. When it came time for us to look for our retirement home, I reached out to Barbara, and she got back to me immediately with possibilities alerting me to anything new that came up. When we could finally get to Austin for a three day weekend, Barbara spent the entire time driving us around to look at homes. Plus, she gave us tremendous advice on certain areas and builders that she knew. With her expertise and connections, Barbara was able to show us our new home and help out with all the details going into closing. I would recommend her to anyone who is looking in the Austin area because she is so knowledgeable and listens to concerns about what you may be looking for. We now consider Barbara one of our new friends and hope to continue to see and connect with her in the coming months and years! Thanks so much!
- The Bordovsky Family
What a wonderful experience working with Barbara! She was professional, well organized, and always available to answer our questions, day or night. There are two things that stand out to me that separate Barbara from other Realtors. After months of visiting multiple listings, Barbara showed us a home that checked all of the boxes.We were excited and put in an immediate offer. During the option period, my wife and I began to think; that maybe we should continue our search. We felt so bad for wasting Barbara's time. After I informed her of our decision, Barbara said, "At the end of the day, you guys need to be happy. We will find the right home for you!." This really showed us that she was focused on us, not the deal. Once we put our house on the market, Barbara's marketing efforts generated enormous interest, and her open house was packed. She was able to negotiate multiple offers that evening and eventually sold our house in one day. She told us her plan prior to listing our home, and she certainly executed that plan. Great experience working with Barbara! We will always turn to her for our real estate needs.
- The Dunham Family
Barbara Giglio was a fantastic buyer/seller. We contacted her after making a mistake with another brokerage (a huge mistake), and thanks to Barbara, we had an offer very fast. On the other side, she was very quick to help us find the perfect home. We had very specific requirements, but her patience prevailed. It was a breath of fresh air using her. She makes it seem as though we were her only customer. Fantastic!
- The Salik Family
My family is new to Texas and the Austin area so we were a bit intimidated by the housing market but we found a wonderful, patient, understanding, down-to-earth Realtor and friend in Barbara Giglio. She listened to our needs and found homes with the qualities we expressed. In the past couple of years, Barb has found a home for my daughter’s family and two for my family. The second home is our forever home and we could not be more grateful.
- The Herbert Family
My wife and I worked with Barbara for the better part of two years, trying to find a unicorn home that would accommodate the needs of our my wife and me, our two daughters, my wife's mother, and landing in a very particular school district. Through the entire process, Barbara was constantly on top of any new and interesting properties on the market, never lost sight of the big notes we were trying to hit, and somehow managed to remain unfailingly patient and professional through all the trials of house hunting and ultimately, making an offer and landing an amazing house exactly where we wanted to be.Barbara is a relentless, savvy Realtor who will doggedly hunt down the home you're looking for. On top of that, she is incredibly easy to talk to, friendly and good-natured to the core, and never once pushed us on anything we didn't want to pursue. In my view, having a strong, friendly working relationship with your Realtor is just as important as general knowledge of real estate. In my experience, Barbara became our partner as well as a friend and delivered on every front. I would recommend her to anyone hunting for a house in the city of Austin and have done so to several of my neighbors and coworkers.
- The Raymor Family
My husband and I were so fortunate to find Barbara Giglio when we were first thinking about selling our house in Circle C and moving out to Buda for its wide-open spaces. We wanted to move somewhere with a little more land and fewer neighbors, but we were not confident we could get our house up to par to be able to get a good price. Barbara helped us every step of the way, including staging our home to make it absolutely gorgeous, keeping us informed of everything from comps to pitfalls, lending solid sage advice, and even helping us paint and powerwash. She took care of details, large and small, and worked tirelessly for us and not only sold our home quickly, but we ended up with the highest price for our home in the neighborhood.Barbara was so patient with us as we were very picky in looking for our forever home. She understood right away what we wanted in a home and guided us through the process with grace and skill. In helping us buy our dream home she became a lifelong friend and we will be forever grateful. We would highly recommend her to my family and friends.
