I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for all of your help and expertise in helping me to find my home.
I have never had such a smooth transaction from finding the perfect house to closing on that house. You made everything seem so simple and effortless but I know you worked very hard to make it stress free for me.
I will recommend you to everyone I know who is looking to buy a home.
Once again, thank you for all of your help.
I would like to take a moment to thank you for assisting my husband and I with the Short Sale of our home. As you know the process can be extremely stressful. You made sure every step of the way went smooth with little or no hassle on our part.
I had always thought it took several months to do a Short Sale but it went faster than I thought. It was a pleasure to work with you. You were always nice, professional and knowledgeable.
If I know anyone that needs help with their homes, I will forward you information to them,
Just a few lines to let you know that we are still thinking about you, we would like to thank you for everything you have done for me and Betty on helping us get the house. We are still trying to get settled in.
1st) Would like to thank you on your persistence on working with us on the different problems of understanding what a Realtor and Mortgager has to go through to get financing.
2nd) Would like to thank you on your patience of understanding of why we wanted that particular house.
3rd) If we had to do over again we would pick you as our Realtor again to help us, even though at this time we are not planning on selling or buying another home.
4th) I cannot say enough how considerate you are of your customers, in making sure they are happy with you and the firm.
5th) May God blesses you and keeps you and your family safe.
God Bless and God speed on your journeys,
Gary and Betty LeBlanc

I would like to share my experience of selling my house. Due to being in financial trouble I had to do a Short Sale.
I feel like I was blessed because the first Realtor I contacted referred me to Laura Austin. I was told she is the one to do a Short Sale.
During this process I know that I was guilty of procrastinating and not getting things done as quickly as Laura wanted me to. I am sure she was upset with me at times. Even saying this she was always understanding, kind and positive.
I had a federal tax lien on the property. Laura spoke with and got things worked out with the IRS. The tax lien was dismissed on the property. That had to happen to get approval for the Short Sale.
I was going through some trying times and dealing with depression due to the situation I got myself into. When I spoke with Laura about the sale she always had words that seemed to lift my spirits and get me into a positive mood.
When it came time to close on the property Laura somehow got me a check for a sizable amount for relocation. That really was needed and appreciated.
I can’t say enough about her professional and caring ways.
I do highly recommend her to anyone, not only for Short Sales but for any Real Estate needs.
Once again, I would like to thank you for showing me half of Lake Conroe yesterday. Most importantly by far was the fact that you also saw that the highest priced house on the list was not necessarily the one for me. I know that I’m getting cynical in my older days, but I still believe that integrity like that is rare. I told Kevin about that. He is looking for a small condo around April Sound, as I said yesterday.
Talk to you later,
We want you to know how grateful we are for the excellent job you have done for us with our short sale. The house was a burden we had for full two years. We changed three real estate agents; we spent all our savings trying to avoid foreclosure on the property and paying for two houses at same time. Real Estate market degraded dramatically and we lost hope to sell the house.
We are impressed with both your personality and your professional skills. You were very tolerant and patient explaining complicated and not easy to understand legal procedures. You kept us informed about every change in our case and steered us through each step with professionalism. I want to emphasize your informal way of communications when you answered all the questions we have had, expressing your opinion, suggestions and giving us really valuable advice.
We will be happy to recommend you as a Real Estate Agent to our friends that need highly professional help. All the Realtors we worked with said they do their best working hard for their clients; you did not say this, instead you just did your job. Also make sure that if we need ever a good Real Estate Agent, the first person in our list is to call you.
Once again from our heart, we appreciate all you support, understanding, professionalism and dedication.

Laura came to our house one rainy day after several unsuccessful attempts to present a contract on our home to our agent. Due to a series of unfortunate events, we were in the process of losing our home. To avoid foreclosure we were attempting a Short Sale through a “Short Sale Specialist”. Laura had viewed our home many years ago and remembered how much she liked it when she noticed it had been terminated from the MLS listing page, she decided to stop by. I initially told her that she would need to contact the agent that was handling it and thanked her for her interest in the property. I wasn’t long after our first meeting that our “Short Sale Specialist” abandoned us and left us high and dry. The bank was calling us daily wanting their money and we were starting to receive calls from law firms about foreclosure proceedings. My husband and I were panicking and didn’t know what to do when I remembered Laura’s visit and her business card. I promptly called her and from that day forward, things started to change for the better in our lives. Not only did Laura quickly put the house back on the market, she worked diligently with our mortgage company, their lawyers and the Veterans Administration to stop any negative proceedings that had started against us when our previous Realtor abandoned us. She has been our guardian angel through all of this. She as reassured us when we wanted to give up and has worked tirelessly and doggedly to sell our house. She has been committed to us through every step of this journey, never giving up and ALWAYS having a positive “can do” attitude. I can honestly say that if it wasn’t for Laura’s persistence, determination and rock solid work ethics, our house would have been foreclosed upon and returned to the bank many months ago and our credit would have been ruined. There are so many times that we just wanted to give up. She always found a way to reassure us and turn our negative energy around. She is someone that I trust- completely and unequivocally. Our best interest has always been paramount to Laura. She took the time to explain every step of our short sale to us and let us know up front the repercussions of our actions and inactions. I have never had anyone in my life that has been as much as an advocate for me as Laura has been, I am going to miss her.
Laura, Thank you again for EVERYTHING you have done for us. I don’t even want to imagine where would be if you had not come into our lives. I mean every word that I wrote. I have never had anyone in my life that stuck by me like you have. You’ve made me want to have faith in people again and I really am going to miss you.
Good luck in your life and I wish you every happiness.
Lisa and Jason Rifenbark
I am so glad I referred my friends to you. I just don’t have any experience working on short sales and from what they have told me, you are amazing. Good luck on the offer on their property and thanks for being a true professional.

Laura Austin was a great help in our purchase of our first home. She was experienced in explaining the process. Laura was informative and helpful with purchasing our house. We would recommend her to anyone who is a first time homebuyer.

“Laura has been very communicative with us throughout our difficult ordeal. She helped us on both of our rental properties both with different lenders and with very different requirements. We truly believe we could not have done this without her help. We highly recommend Laura for her honesty, professionalism, and determination to get your home sold."
Laura really went out of her way to make sure I was able to get the short sale on my home. Even after the bank said we had past their deadline for sale, she pulled a rabbit out of the hat and sold the home. The bank reopened the short sale on the offer she received and she even negotiated to assist me with other road bumps that came up along that way that I couldn’t afford to take care of myself. She did an outstanding job as a liaison to the bank when I was unable to get any response from them, and managed to still get HUD funds for me at the final close of the deal. She was patient with all my frustration and special needs. If you need to short sell your home, you won’t find someone with more experience and skill than Laura Austin!
“A CHAPTER IN MY LIFE” 2015
I would like to tell a testimony about a small parcel of land and a dear lady. It all started back in the year of 2014, while I was still working I bought a piece of land back in the state of Texas. I was making my monthly payments on schedule; but during my last working days of working for a company I had a series of accidents, then 5 surgeries, then I was out of my job and then I went through 2 years of recovery (healing) and today I am considered permanently disabled by the doctors and living off one monthly check from social security, Thanks be to God.
And now after going through the process of dealing with the healing process; this dear lady was placed in my path to help me sell the parcel of land. Laura B. Austin from the inception to the last closing document went to work to help me sell the piece of land. Which she did. Along the way she explained thoroughly to me everything that she was going to do and what I needed to do; but most important she told me to have patience because of the way the economy is at this present time. After a year of telephone calls back and forth and all the signing of paperwork and dating all the paperwork, the transaction was finalized. Thanks be to God.
After a year of communicating with this dear lady, I also was starting to realize that this dear lady was all about helping me and not about the gain she was going to make from the transaction. That thought was in the bottom of the ladder. Her primary thinking is to help the client first and to the best of her ability; whether it be buying or selling. Her numero uno concern is for the people that she is helping to be happy and satisfied in whatever deal that she is working out for them.
If there is anyone out there in the world who may be interested in buying or selling a home or a vacant piece of land, I highly and strongly recommend Laura B. Austin to help you with her savvy-n-expertise. She is there to help you with all of your needs.
With Gratitude, In “Christ Jesus”, J. H.
