Anne Edwards Johnson's Blog Posts
Rarely does a week go by without Austin being listed at or near the top of a "best of" list.
With so much positive PR for this city flying around, I thought it would be helpful to wrangle it all together. So here goes.
• The biggie people still like to talk about came from Kiplinger’s Personal Finance in May 2010, which tagged Austin as the No. 1 best city to live in for the next 10 years.
• Just last week, Austin placed third in a "Youngest Cities" ranking, which was based on how youthful residents feel, not their actual age.
• When it comes to social networking, few cities beat Austin's prowess, Men's Health magazine says.
• Austin is the second-best place to find a job right now, according to number crunchers at Ajilon Professional Staffing.
• In November, Austin was deemed to have the second-strongest job market in the country by the Milken Institute (behind only Killeen, Texas).
• That backs up another list in July 2010 that put Austin among the top job-generating cities.
• In May 2010, Austin was listed among the country’s healthiest cities on two other lists.
• A CNN/Money study last year labeled Austin as recession-proof.
• Austin was chosen as one of the eight best places to live and work in the U.S. by Business Review USA.
• Austinites have the ninth-best “quality of life,” according to Portfolio.com study in May 2010.
• Austin (again) ranked No. 4 on a list of the biggest tax procrastinating cities. I'll go out on a limb and put this one in the "positive" category because it illustrates how laid back and cool this city is. We're much too busy this time of year with rodeos, music festivals and perfect weather to be bogged down by tax forms.
I am a unique mix of real estate savvy and streetwise sassy. I am a results-oriented Realtor with the heart of an educator. I strive for an on-going partnership that helps my client’s yield the best results in their search for a home or investment property or selling a property.

Testimonials for Anne Edwards Johnson
Thank you Anne for all your help with selling my house!
Selling a house is a very stressful experience, especially when you don’t know what to expect. Anne really made it a less stressful experience for me. She showed me commitment dedication and ongoing confidence that the house would sell in a quick time and it did and for more than I had originally expected. She also kept me up to date almost daily the activity of who viewed my house online and ongoing feedback with what was happening, who was coming through and the comments that were being made about the house. Anne knows exactly what to do to market the house well and what not to do. She was patient, understanding, knowledgeable, always available and always there to answer my questions and above all wanted what was only the best for me. She knows the dynamic Austin market like no other and she knows all of what’s going on with each individual neighborhood. She didn’t push me into making any changes but gave me valuable advice regarding improving the way we could sell, what would help and what to do and how to stage and what to expect. Thank you again for your perseverance, Anne. You were amazing. I would definitely highly recommend Anne to anyone looking for a great realtor!

What can we say….you have been with us from the start and you have never wavered. You have been patient, straight forward and SO MUCH more than a real estate agent. You have been a true lifelong friend. We love you!

We are so happy to have found our perfect home in Austin AND so happy that the madness of our closing has now come to an end. We are sad, however, that we won’t be seeing you every few days to look at a home and that we won’t be hearing your voice on the phone quite as frequently. You have been wonderful to work with and it has been so much fun getting to know you over these months. We will always remember your patience as we looked at so many homes. And Anne, your chocolate cakes! They will go down in history as the BEST chocolate cakes ever made. Boys are they tasty! Please keep in touch and we will do the same. Take care and we hope to see you soon.

Whew! This marathon is coming to a wonderful end! We closed yesterday and moved in today. The move went very smoothly and we and our children are sitting here watching the Auburn and Alabama games! We are elated with the house, and hope you come see us someday. Thank you SO much for everything you have done for us, recently and in the past. You have been a wonderful friend, and your giving attitude and untiring effort made a huge difference in our coming and going from TX. Your cakes have punctuated the events of our lives! Thank you dear Anne for being such a steadfast friend.
We hope the very, very best for you and your beautiful family.
Blessings to you all!

"Thank you Anne for the extraordinarily professional and friendly service. You are as experienced as anyone we have encountered in our many real estate transactions from London, Washington DC to Austin, and we feel lucky to have met you. Your fair estimate on our home's value and pricing was far more accurate than others we received. As a consequence, our expectations, objectives and sales strategy were properly aligned. Because you went that extra mile for us, as out of town clients with very limited time, is a mark of your dedication to fully servicing your client's needs, however unusal they may be. We cannot thank you enough for bringing the home's landscaping up to condition, having the home cleaned and decorated, and even handling the sale and charitable collection of remaining personal items! All of this, on top of efficiently, timely and succinctly managing and communicating the transaction's evolution and closing for us, thousands of miles away. Due to your unique marketing efforts and preparation, we were able to sell in the opening days and choose amongst a rush of various buyers. We recommend you without reservation and look forward to keeping in touch and using you again when we pursue Texas real estate. Thank you for everything!"
