Testimonials


 

Larry & Patricia - Smithville, TX

It was a great experience. From the listing to the sale she was the consummate professional. She kept us informed on a regular basis and never left us guessing what was going on. She got a fair price for the property and was always willing to go the extra mile. I would highly recommend her to anyone that is buying or selling real estate.


Andrew - Smithville, TX

As someone who had never seen the property that needed to be sold, I felt very comfortable that Ann was my eyes and ears for what needed to be done and to get the property sold. Her guidance in listing at a fair price helped us close quickly.


Gary - Bastrop, TX

Beverly went above and beyond for me in helping me buy a $500K property. She is very detail oriented and stays on top of the deal and all of the details until it closes. There are a lot of agents out there that seem to want the client to do all the work - this isn't Beverly. She's a bulldog when it comes to getting things done on-time and stays in constant communication with all of the parties involved. She gets 5 stars from me on all points. GREAT AGENT!


Allen - Austin, TX

I had the privilege of working with Toni Dudley when I purchased my home and I can honestly say she is a true professional. Her tireless work ethic and determination helped me find the perfect home for my needs. I would highly recommend her for anyone in the marker for real estate.


Melissa - Lexington, TX

Laura was great to work with. She was always accommodating on show times and always very pleasant. She responds to questions quickly and if she doesn't have an answer, she will get one.


Alice - Leander, TX

I listed a property with Ms. Martinets, we had a buyer ask if I would consider owner financing. After discussing the advantages of this option for a period of two years as explained to me by Ms. Martinets, it turned out to be a win/win for both myself and the buyer. Thank you for your knowledgeable suggestions and guidance. Would highly recommend Ms. Martinets to assist in any real estate transactions and will be personally seeking her assistance again in the future.


Scott - Austin, TX

I had a great experience working with Toni Dudley - her knowledge of the market and keen eye were invaluable in getting us into a home we love!


Janessa & Curtis - Bastrop, TX

Laura is very professional, personable, & punctual - qualities that not all realtors have these days. Even in stressful situations that we faced (that were beyond her control), she stayed calm, cool, and collected, which was very helpful to us!


Chris - Smithville, TX

Beverly represented the seller on acreage that I purchased in Smithville. This was a seller financing situation, which required creative thinking and a great deal of communication. She did a great job of keeping the deal alive and ultimately negotiating a win-win scenario for everyone involved.   I would recommend her to anyone in this area.


Lianna - Austin, TX

Toni was the best REALTOR® I’ve ever had! Attentive. Listens to OUR needs and wants. Compiles that information into a vast variety of properties. She remembers little details about us. She’s like family!


Diane - Burton, TX

There is no real estate agent who will give you more time and energy to selling your property than Beverly. She is very knowledgeable and creative in her marketing skills and gives her very best as she represent her clients. Beverly Martinets was my agent when I purchased my property 12401 East Washington, Burton, Texas, in 2016. She was also my agent for the sale of this property in 2017-2018.


James & Karen - Bastrop, TX

Ann communicates very well with her clients to help keep them informed as to the processes involved in buying a house. She talks to you like a person and not just a number. Highly recommend!

Preston - Paige, TX

I felt that Ann had my best interests when items came up to be addressed. Ann was knowlegable about these items and helped me feel comfortable in making them.


Lila - Austin, TX

I had never bought property (i.e., land) before and it took a while to figure out exactly what I was looking for. Ann was endlessly patient and did a great job answering my many questions. My family and I are very happy with our new place in Bastrop County.


Sandra - Elgin, TX

I have not purchased or sold many houses and/or real estate, therefore not very knowledgeable of the process. Ann took time to understand and know the type of property and price range I needed. I put complete trust and confidence in Ann. She exceeded my expectations and found the perfect property for me!


Sherry - Smithville, TX

I believe that you are very trustworthy. You told me what should be done, what needed to be considered, and kept me informed; not an easy thing to do with a client like myself, who isn't too electronically savvy and who was out of state.


Gene - Bastrop, TX

Ann, thank you for your excellent advice and service. I highly recommend you because of your energy, proactive work, guidance, and ability to get the job done quickly. Thank you so much!


Trey - Paige TX

Ann is one of the best realtors we have worked with. She knows the markets and how to quickly overcome hurdles to get the deal done.


Joel & Pam - Bastrop, TX

Ann was so nice and helpful. Gave up several Sundays to help us find a home. She kept us in the loop when we were frustrated with the lending company. Thanks Ann!


Erin - Bastrop, TX

As a first time home-buyer Ann guided me through the process and I always felt she was looking after my best interests.

Heather & Blair - Smithville, TX

Donny - Cedar Creek, TX

Ann was attentive, conscientious, and patient, and was always striving for my wants. I found her to be personable, trustworthy and easy to communicate with. I recommend her wholeheartedly.


Alex - Bastrop, TX

From the moment I called you (Ann) with my “dilemma” you dropped everything to help, you reassured me every step of the way and took time out of you personal life to explain things for me. I so appreciate your helping me through this process!


Randy - Bastrop, TX

When Ann Van Zandt was chosen as our Realtor we had no idea who she was. Our experience with Mrs. Van Zandt was nothing but positive. I would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone looking for a competent professional Realtor.


Buddy & Vivian - Bastrop, TX

Ann Van Zandt is more than a 5 star agent! She listed our investment property that had to be completely renovated. She worked endlessly and tirelessly meeting contractors and getting quotes and overseeing the entire renovation. She did it all in 3 weeks! She watched over our vacant home and kept us informed of the market changes on a regular bases. When the wildfires took our home, she was still there for us, even though her own homes was under the same threat! Ann is still working with us, getting names of clean up companies to remove the debris- while our listing had to be withdrawn. I have worked with other agents for 25 years and have never met an agent that has worked so hard and endlessly with such care and concern for our best interest at all times. She is the one and only agent that I would ever recommend. Ann Van Zandt is the GREATEST!


Randy & Lisa - Rosanky, TX

Ann is very professional, has an excellent marketing system set up. If you want your home to sell, hire Ann!


Jim & Cate - Bastrop, TX

If you are looking for a Realtor in the Bastrop-Austin area, you want the best. And the best is Ann Van Zandt. Ann worked with us tirelessly for a long time as we looked for a house that is just the right one for us, and we are now in a home that we love. We cannot say enough about her devotion and professionalism in serving her clients, in every way. For Ann, her work is not a job but a vocation, and we feel very grateful for having her serve as our Realtor!


Jerry & Jane - Georgetown, TX

Once upon a time my fiancé’ and I embarked on the adventure of purchasing a home. We lived in Florida and made our decision to move to Texas, but we did not want to spend any more money on rentals. Browsing through real estate listings we came across Ann Van Zandt. We “hooked up” through the marvels of cyberspace and for the months that followed, Ann became our eyes, ears, and quite frankly our sounding board. She visited homes two and three times. Took additional pictures (to reveal what the listing itself did not show), and basically became a surrogate buyer for us. Once the perfect home was identified (after a couple of “almost-maybes”), she continued to run interference for us with documentation, bank annoyances, and other minutia that would have driven a less dedicated individual completely nuts!! When we closed, where one would assume the “deal was done” and she could go merrily on her way to pursue other clients, she again followed up on our behalf on a clerical error made by the title company allocating our home warranty insurance to a different carrier than the one we had chosen. During the entire process, we became disheartened with the banking process several times, and were seriously considering, canceling the entire process and just waiting until we got to Texas. It was Ann’s tenacity and follow-through that got us beyond those days of total frustration. I would recommend her to ANYONE who attempts to purchase a home, whether you live in Texas or not, she is true to her word, committed to excellence, and simply pure gold! Thank you Ann Van Zandt!


 

Trudy - Paige, TX

In our 2 years of looking for the perfect place I spoke to many realtors, it was difficult to get phone calls returned, information we needed to make an informed decision, just an overall lack of professionalism. From the first phone call with Beverly we were impressed. We waived having a realtor of our own, Beverly was the listing agent, but we felt she would help us get our forever place. Beverly was professional, knowledgeable on what we would need to have to make our dream a reality. She kept all parties up to date on paperwork and time frames, she went to bat for us with the lender, a ball of energy that didn't stop working until we signed the paperwork. I would highly recommend Beverly to represent you in selling your home or property or if your looking to buy she'll get you in with the least amount of frustration possible! Good luck and God Bless as you endeavor to make your dreams come true!


Elisa - Cedar Creek, TX

I was very interested in a property with multiple offers. Laura showed me the property and kept me informed of all things going on with it's status after another buyer was selected originally for sale. They didn't go through with purchase and I DID end up buying my dream property! It was meant to be, as Laura put it and I'm so grateful she stuck with us through the process and the wait!"


John - Austin, TX

Outstanding service! When my wife and I decided to sell our house, Toni Dudley was there to make it happen. She did all the legwork, research, marketing, she made suggestions on what we could do to increase our selling price... and she's as honest as they come. You know that when she tells you something, it's how it is... no blowing smoke or fake personality... she's the real deal. I can't recommend her enough!


Linda - Galveston, TX

When you are purchasing a home and have little knowledge of the process. I can truly say that Beverly helped me with every single detail. She was on top of the entire process. If I had questions she was right on it anytime of the day or evening. I seriously will never use another real estate agent.  Beverly was professional and personable and that was very important to me. I appreciate all Beverly did for me in this home buying adventure. She literally make it so easy. I truly was never stressed over the entire process. Thanks so much Beverly.


Marcie - Paige, TX

Working with Laura was extremely easy. This was our first home purchase and we had a lot of questions. Laura always had the answers or she found them for us. She absolutely went above and beyond. There was something that needed to be done on the property before we could close, and we were out of state so couldn't take care of it ourselves. Laura took care of it herself over the weekend when she couldn't get a response from the seller. We left her many messages and sent her many emails and she responded quickly to each one. I'm sure we drove her crazy, but she never let us feel that way. We highly, highly recommend you call Laura. You won't be sorry!


Emily - Austin, TX

A friend referred me to Toni, and she was a pleasure to work with! I was looking for a duplex in South Austin with a few specifications. After a friendly phone consultation, she began finding homes that met my criteria and frequently shared links to so I could review them. She was very flexible and responsive to my questions and preferences. Once I narrowed down my top few rentals to check out, she drove me around so we could check out the places. She offered helpful insights about the neighborhoods and the spatial layouts of the different duplexes, which helped me make a decision. Once I found the home I wanted, she advised me on the application process and was there to make sure things went smoothly. I was so glad to have Toni in my corner throughout the entire process. Will definitely work with her again when it is time to find a new place


Charles & Darcy - Bastrop, TX

Beverly helped us find and purchase a neat home in the desirable historic district of Bastrop, TX. She alerted us when new properties came on the market and even found a property that had been listed improperly. She was relentless. With her help, we found a place, made an offer, and got it was accepted on the first day it was listed. We were pleased to have her on our team. You would be, too!

This is our 2nd transaction with Ann Van Zandt. She was great the 1st time and better the 2nd time.

At the closing she asked questions to ensure we understood what we were signing.


Mary & RV - Cedar Creek, TX

We just felt she was always “there” to answer or ask questions, to educate us about real estate procedures, and to positively represent us, the sellers, in the transaction. If a similar opportunity to buy or sell comes up we will definitely seek the services of Ann Van Zandt.
