Testimonials


 

Andres, Smithville, TX

Ann was always available to provide guidance in maximizing our investment, her expertise in the market proved to be very valuable.


Ed, Bastrop, TX

Super Professional. We wanted to buy a piece of property near our grandkids, son and daughter in law. Whenever we take the 1,200 mile trip from Florida to Texas, we do what the kids and grandkids want to do. We visit a variety of places but not with an intent to buy anything. So when we started looking to buy, we realized that we didn't know the area.We were so glad we picked Ann.

She helped us assess our needs and was very responsive to meeting with us, returning calls and emails and most of all, helping to negotiate the purchase of a building lot.

Ann set up meetings, referred builders, helped arrange settlement, even gave us the name of a company to keep the grass cut. We couldn't have done it without her.

She is very good at being there to help and is passionate about being the best Real Estate Professional we've ever worked with.

Thank you, Ann

I bought a historic home in downtown Bastrop and Ann Van Zandt was my Realtor. She was very knowledgeable of the real estate market and of historic homes.

She went above and beyond in everything! Ann will be my Realtor for life!

Jarrett & Rebecca - Austin, TX

Toni was great! She was prompt, always responsive, and a huge help to us while we bought our first house. She was refreshingly forthright about the risks of many of the properties we looked at and it always felt like she was in our corner. I'd recommend her to anyone looking for honesty and reliability in their realtor.


Ryan & Bethany - Smithville, TX

Ann Van Zandt was exceptional with services provided to us in finding our home! She reaches out right away once we were established with our lender and always made herself available whenever we had any questions or concerns along the way. She also made sure everything was going efficiently and in a way that was easy to understand. We appreciated Ann’s support and time throughout finding a home and getting reading for closing. I highly recommend Ann Van Zandt as a top Realtor to use for your new home!


Sandra - Caldwell, TX

I have bought and sold a number of homes around the country, and all with the assistance of capable realtors. None, however, has come anywhere close to Ann Van Zandt.

Since Ann has been my realtor with two purchases and two sales in Bastrop and Travis Counties, I have clearly seen her skills in all aspects of these experiences.

Ann is experienced and skillful. She is knowledgeable of the market; proficient in all areas of the sales and purchase process, and meticulous in carrying through with all details. She is always prompt and responsive to questions you may have about anything: You can trust her with every aspect of your negotiation.

I have also appreciated her manner: She is straightforward but also always considerate; unintrusive but responsive to suggesting options about offers and other considerations; direct but always warm—plus her sense of humor makes her a delight to work with.

In short, Ann is a consummate realtor. Choose her for your realtor and you will be much more than satisfied in every way.


Alain & Sandy - Bastrop, TX

It took us a little while to sell our two properties in Bastrop and Ann Van Zandt from Van Zandt Properties has been so kind to us and attentive to our needs. Living in Hawaii she was always here by email or text messaging to help us, and she made our transaction easy and pleasant. I would highly recommend her to those of you ready to purchase or sell their Real Estate.


Dallas, Bastrop, TX

My wife and I live in the D/FW area and were interested in purchasing property in the Bastrop area. Ann was a great help in organizing our wish list and providing property listings from which to choose. After completing our purchase, she continues to be a valuable resource as we move forward with building our dream home.


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.


Allen - Austin, TX

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!

Heather & Blair - Smithville, TX

Ann was great! We moved into the area and did not know anyone. She made us feel comfortable and at home. She is very knowledgeable and professional. She was willing to help us with anything we asked for. She helped us close early too!


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!


 

Jason. Bastrop, TX

I used Ann because she had great reviews and now I know why. She was professional and took care of so many details to make the selling of my home very easy. I would 100% do business with her again.


Alan, Bastrop, TX

Ann has helped me over the last 13 years buying and selling properties in Central Texas. Always going the extra mile to make sure that my purchases and sales go smooth, Ann has always alerted me every step of the process from time of contract to closing a purchase or a sale regarding offers, inspections and lenders. As I'm always out of town when this happens, keeping me up to date on these matters has given me peace of mind in what would otherwise be a stressful process. Worth every 5 out of 5 stars.


Adam, Bastrop, TX

Less stressful experience than I thought. Answered all questions, was on point with the title company and was even able to speed up the closing process so we could be moved in before Christmas. Thank you so much.


Ola, Bastrop, TX

If you are looking for a hard working, honest/sincere realtor that will look out for your best interest, look no further. Ann Is who you need. She will stand by you to the very end. I will use her over and over again for my real estate needs anything, any day. She is not only the best., she is so sweet and very caring. A TRUE PROFESSIONAL, indeed!


Hans, Bastrop, TX

I live in California and my property was in Texas, Ann took care of everything and always answered her phone which is very important. She got the job done and closed in time. I highly recommend her to have her on your team!


Bishop Dan & Vernell - Bastrop, TX

My wife and I wish to express sincere thanks to and deep appreciation of Ann Van Zandt of Van Zandt Properties.

We were introduced to Ann as someone who could help us find a property as we relocate from Minnesota to Texas.. Help is an understatement.

Ann worked with us by phone, e-mail and text messaging in preparation for multi-day site visits.  During our first face-to-face encounter we established a great relationship.  Ann took the time to get to know us and exactly what we liked and disliked.

We lined up approximately 18 properties in multiple cities to see during our two-day stay.  Ann put together a reasonable schedule.  We were able to hit the ground running.

By the end of the first day Ann had an even better idea of what we wanted including a community that would be suitable. Ann asked if she could add 4 additional proprieties to our list for the second day.  We agreed.  When we walked into the 3rd of the additional properties my wife said "I love this house".

Ann worked with in writing the purchase agreement and walked with us as we prepared to close within a 30-day window.  Ann remained our eyes and ears during the entire process.  We closed on time without a hitch.

Ann Van Zandt is the ultimate professional.  Her knowledge and expertise of the industry and the area have been a huge benefit to us!  If you are considering buying or selling I encourage you to contact Ann Van Zandt!

I'm a Navy veteran, My wife and I have been in the ministry for more than forty years.  We're both retired.  Ann took the time to get to know us in our various capacities and worked with us perfectly.


Geoffrey - Cedar Park, TX

Toni is by far the most tenacious and gracious person I have ever worked with. She helped me beyond expectations, despite multiple headaches with my lender and appraiser. I cannot recommend Toni's talents enough to anyone looking for a home, specifically first home buyers. In my case (first time home buyer), Toni explained every course of action throughout the entire process, as well as made sure THINGS GOT DONE! Whether it was staying on hold with my lender for hours on end, or simply breaking down a contract and helping me understand every minute detail, Toni took time to help me on a personal level. Very professional when she needs to be, and extremely helpful always. Thank you Toni.


Angela & Randy - Paige, TX

We highly Recommend Ann as your agent. She was there for us throughout our entire buying experience. She answered every question we had. Thank you Ann for helping us buying our dream home.


Ray - Bastrop, TX

Best choice for remote sale of your property. I needed to sell family property and only wanted to travel to Texas once. Ann and her close ties with the title company made it possible for me to spend about an hour in her office to make it all happen. Our property sold in less than a month, for more than we expected and minimal effort on our part. We could not be happier.


Brian - Cedar Creek, TX

I give Ann five stars for helping me sell my house. For me selling my house was stressful but Ann always kept things positive and kept me level headed. Even late in the process when I was willing to give up more money to get the deal done she kept me from making a mistake and saved me thousands of dollars. In the beginning she was the only person that showed up on time and with all the comps ready to go. While others were basically winging it. Preparation is everything. One thing I loved is she always answers her phone and if not calls back in minutes. In this world this was priceless. Thanks for everything Ann!!!


Callie - Paige, TX

Great experience working with Ann. She was very patient and helpful with our long search for the right property and helped us navigate all the closing steps with ease.


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!


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


Amanda & Ben - Bastrop, TX

Ann did a wonderful job taking care of us and explaining things, as we were first time home buyers. We called her many times for explanations, and help with the finance company. We found her by chance, but are sure glad we did!


Mary & Chris - Bastrop, TX

Ann Van Zandt is the real estate agent you want! She is organized, efficient, knowledgable, and capable! We could not more highly recommend Ann for your real estate needs. Throughout the processs, Ann was on top of things, getting us the best deal on our house to be found. She is the woman for the job, and I would use her again in a heartbeat!


Beth - Bastrop, TX

Ann was professional and answered all my questions throughout the entire process. I always knew my calls would be answered or returned promptly. She was a pleasure to do business with.

Laurie & John - Cedar Creek, TX

Thanks Ann for your help in selling our house. It was a smooth experience and you are wonderful to work with. I don’t think we have ever had a sale go so quickly or so well.


Bryan & Beth - Bastrop, TX

Ann treated this house like it were her own. Managing it for us for over 4 years. She went far beyond what we ever expected from her and took care of every problem that arose without one complaint. Top Notch!!!


Debbie & Jeff - Cistern, TX

She did everything and more to show the houses that I chose. A lot of the time it was at the last minute and it was no problem. She works on your schedule as much as she can. She is helpful and will research for you so you feel comfortable in your purchase.


Rick & Melissa - Wimberley, TX

This is our 2nd transaction with Ann Van Zandt. She was great the 1st time and better the 2nd time. We really appreciated the computer updates when something in our criteria became available (homes search). We appreciated her keeping us on track of deadlines. At the closing she asked questions to ensure we understood what we were signing.


Mary & RV - Cedar Creek, TX

If you want a Realtor who will work tirelessly on your behalf to positively represent the home you are selling, Ann Van Zandt is the Realtor to call. From the first meeting, she was thorough and honest about the state of our home, and fully explained her services. After our first meeting, she kept in constant touch updating us with progress and her discussions with potential buyers. 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.


Stephanie & Chuck - Bastrop, TX

Diane & Robert - Bastrop, TX

Ann was quick to respond to emails, messages, etc. Was prepared to show homes at our convenience!

Ann was great to work with. She kept me informed every step of the way. I never needed to call her; she was always proactive and clear in her communication. And, she sold our home for a premium in a very difficult market!


Chris & Lisa - Buda, TX

Ann was extremely helpful to us with the purchase of our new home in Buda. Ann has excellent attention to detail when reading contracts and was always available to answer our questions, even if it was late in the evening. This is the second time we have used Ann’s services and we would personally recommend her to our friends and family if they ever needed a real estate agent.
