Austin, Texas Metro Area HILL COUNTRY of TEXAS REALTOR®
My name is Betty Saenz and I am a licensed Texas REALTOR®, member of Williamson County Association of REALTORS®, the Austin Board of REALTORS® Multiple Listing Service and the National Association of REALTORS®.
I specialize in Residential, Farm & Ranch & Investment Real Estate sales. I have had special marketing training such as from the nationally known firm of Hobbs Herder as well as being a graduate of Floyd Wickman's "Sweat Hog" & "Starmakers" programs. My degree in Psychology (presented "with HONORS"), Master's level training in Counseling as well as my years of experience make me a skillful negotiator, stager, and marketer. I also hold the GRI- Graduate, REALTOR® Institute as well as a Senior Residential Specialist, SRES®, designations. I have experience in & truly believe in/am passionate about GREEN homes along with my EcoBrokers® designation- to work in GREEN Real Estate.
All this special training has made it possible for me to specialize in getting my clients the most money for their property, with the least hassle in the least amount of time. My sales statistics show that. An above average portion of my residential properties sell in much less than average marketing time and for more than list price. I just closed on one in Pflugerville which sold above list price. We had received multiple offers for it. I work for a small "Boutique" agency that provides superior, personalized service. I have the time and expertise to get results in SELLING your property! Please call me if that's what you need!
BUYING: For buyers- no matter what your level of sophistication- I can help. Whether a skilled and experienced multi-property owner or a first timer needing "baby" steps I will help at your level. I love helping first time buyers, educating them in making the decisions that are right for them. If you currently suffer from Bad Credit- don't give up. Many times you can go through steps to repair your credit at least enough to qualify- I can recommend lenders to help do that and I will stick with you until you are able to buy. Whether you need a house, condo or duplex for yourself or family, a Ranch or acreage to enjoy- call or e-mail me today!
Areas of Expertise
Hi! Thanks for looking!
I like it here in Austin- the rolling terrain, creeks, lakes and culture. No matter what you're into- you can find it in Austin. There is truly something (actually several) things to do here every day! Real Estate here seems unaffected by the National economy. We are still strong in Central Texas while the nation's Real Estate market suffers. Amazing!
My family has been here now for 4 generations- since the 1870's. My Grandfather, OW Sandstrom & father, Carl W. Raetzsch were both UT graduates; Mom graduated from Austin High School- the OLD Austin High on 12th that is ACC now. Grandfather was a partner & Attorney at Gracy Title in the old Gracy Building. Lots of family history in the historic Oakwood Cemetary. I remember the 60's and 70's Austin. I saw & heard the shots of Charles Whitman on UT Tower from Grandma's house near UT at 608 Texas Avenue. What an event!
Areas Served by me: I work all in and around the entire Austin metroplex area- Leander, Liberty Hill, Bertram, Oatmeal, Cedar Park, Round Rock, Pflugerville, Georgetown, incl. Sun City; Jarrell, Andice, Florence, Jonestown, Lago Vista, Kingsland, Lake LBJ, Marble Falls; Buda, Driftwood, Wimberley; Manor, Elgin, Taylor, Lund, New Sweden, Bastrop, Sunset Valley, Westlake.
After thoroughly guiding my daughter through the intricacies of buying a house, Betty then sold my house. Her energy was amazing as she went way above and beyond the call of duty, even rolling up her sleeves and grooming the out-of-doors. Her professional model presentation of my house made me want to buy it! She kept herself available to me at all times, and I had the peace of mind of being able to trust her integrity, knowledge and instincts. I recommend Betty with the utmost enthusiasm! ~ Thanks again!!!
