"I couldn't have found a better realtor. I looked for a house for more than 6 months and after having a handful of houses swept out from under me within hours, when she found this house she contacted me within minutes, had all the paper work filled out and the phone number ready to call the minute we looked at the house. The market in Austin is vicious and frustrating and Tammy did everything in her power to lighten the load on my shoulders and fight for the house I really wanted. My house was on the market for less than 3 hours!! I would highly recommend Tammy Spracklen to anyone looking in the Austin area!! In fact I think you would be disappointed with anyone else!"
