"Gene and Susan and the whole Arant team were awesome and I would recommend them to anyone looking to buy a home in the Austin area! We could not be more happy our home and we wouldn't have succeeded in finding one without their experience, knowledge and professionalism. A++++"
Christopher Ghormley

"Our experience with The Gene Arant team exceeded all expectations. The team provided excellent consultation helping us set a sell price that resulted in a quick sale and maximum return on investment. The team followed-through on every commitment and represented our interests through every step in the process: listing, staging, marketing and closing. I’ll refer The Gene Arant Team to friends and family because they offer professional, courteous and friendly service, plus a truck with dollies and blankets."
The Chamberlin Family

"We used the Gene Arant Team and were very pleased with the service and the results we received. Susan was extremely responsive and made sure everything was handled just right. She found a "sweet spot" in which to price and market our home. The stager provided specific (and at times painful :-) ) direction in what to do to make our house show even better than we thought it would. We had 2 over list offers within hours (yes hours) and closed in just under 30 days. The rest of the Arant Team were also responsive and took care of all the details. A great service oriented team that produced results that made us extremely pleased! Thanks Gene Arant Team!!!"
Jim McCabe

"Having never sold a home, I was more than nervous about the process. Before hiring Jennifer Shahry to represent me I reached out to several other agents. Many seemed good, however Jennifer answered my questions in detail, even providing some advice that I hadn’t asked for. Not only that, she helped alleviate stress and worked with me on some big concerns before I had even signed a contract. The entire Gene Arant team was great. This was a bit of a concern for me at first, I was thinking I wanted an agent who worked on their own. I am glad I decided not to go that route. Jennifer was in frequent contact with me, however, so were others. Cody Wickham checked in with me often. He actually left a message once just asking how I was feeling about the entire process. A few times I asked a question and Jennifer or Cody would answer, but then say, let me also ask so and so, just to get more info. That was the power of working with them. Something else I appreciated, they were direct. I don’t do well with reading between the lines, I find real estate confusing. Thankfully I didn’t have to. Jennifer was always supportive, she was good about pointing out other options, but never pushy. A few times I didn’t take her advice, she was 100% supportive of each decision I made. Both Cody and Jennifer were relentlessly helpful throughout the process. Selling a home was still stressful, but thankfully I had awesome people to guide me every step of the way."

"These folks are great. They know their business and kept us informed every step of the way. Will use them again and will recommend to friends."
Rick and Linda Dielman

"I'd like to thank the Gene Arant Team for finding a buyer for our house and making the whole process easy. Gene's Team were all on the same page. They were very helpful with suggestions and when there was a bottleneck, they quickly worked to efficiently solve the problem. I will only use Gene and his team in the future. Lastly, I was happy that Gene monitored the sale and called me directly to make sure everything was up to my expectations."
Rob and Joanne Sala

"Gene was extremely patient, he worked with us for two years to find the right home. We will definitely buy our next home from Gene and will continue to recommend him to our friends. He is very professional and we enjoyed working with him!"
Satisfied Lakeway Residents

"Gene Arant and his team far exceeded my expectations as a Realtor.  Their knowledge of the market was great & their ability to assess accurately our "wants & needs" and discern between the two were phenomenal.  They really took the stress out of the situation and made the whole experience fun & exciting."
Bart & Kellye Patzer

"The Arant Team went to bat for us and helped us find our dream home.  From start to finish, their excellent customer service and "can-do" attitudes set them apart from the rest.  Thanks for all that you do!"
Zack & Julie Shields in Steiner Ranch

"Purchasing a home in Austin while living out-of-state presents unique challenges. Gene gets an A+ for doing everything necessary to get to closing--then providing logistical help in the months before we actually moved into our new home!"
Spicewood Resident

"Gene came through with everything he promised. I would feel comfortable recommending him and his top drawer, extremely personal service to anyone."
Austin resident

"Gene and his team far exceeded our expectations for selling our home. Due to his proactive and aggressive marketing, he had two offers on our home before we were even offically on the market. I can not think of anything more a seller could want! Gene's team is outstanding!"
Happy Steiner Ranch Seller

"Gene & Jennifer, Thanks so much for all you did to help us sell our home. Your team is a well-oiled machine! We knew we early on we were in great hands. Many thanks."
Mike & LeighAnne Sledge

"Gene is without a doubt, the specialist of Lakefront properties. After searching several months we contacted Gene with our requirements and within a month he found us our dream home."
Happy Clients

"We have to admit, we were initially skeptical of going with a large team because were concerned there would not be the personal attention.  However, we can now say THE TEAM is how we would advertise Gene over other realtors.  From Arnie putting up the initial "Coming Soon" sign the moment we decided to use Gene, to meeting Eve to determine a fair price for our house and also helping us through the rest of the selling process, to our discussion with Gene about his company, to the staging coordinator, it was all so handled so smoothly and we couldn't imagine how a realtor by himself could have provided us with that same level of service - he just wouldn't have the time or energy!  Thank you for making our first home selling experience a positive one and if we ever return to Steiner Ranch (fingers crossed), we will definitely give Gene Arant a call."
Alex & Nancy Chaung - Steiner Ranch

"I had my house on the market with a different agent for over 45 days with mostly negative comments from buyers and I was getting almost no suggestions or recomendations from him!  I pulled it off the market & contacted Gene!  Ever since day one, though I spent a few grand (at Gene's suggestion) to get the house into shape to sell, the level of professionalism, care and detail oriented attetion was exceptional

Once the house went on the market, I got an offer in less than 24 hours!  Gene's team was proactive and hardworking... I had not seen anything like this anywhere.  Who doesn't want to have such exceptional service? In one word I can describe the entire team process: AMAZING JOB!"
Steve Rasoul - Steiner Ranch

"The Gene Arant Team was fantastic!  Gene's team took an otherwise stressful situation and made me feel comfortable and at ease.  His team works well together and kept me informed at all times.  I highly recommend the Gene Arant Team for their professionalism but still making you feel like a person and not just a "house to sell"!

Thank you to all your staff!"
Teresa Martinez - Steiner Ranch

" Deciding and actually engaging to sell your real estate property is batches of legal matter bundled with marketing hoops to jump through plus your emotional baggage all associated with a typically very large decision in your life. Not to fear! We found Gene Arant and the entire team comfortable and comforting in their knowledge of the market place and the process, realistic and competent in the critical details, and ethical in their practice.  It is an enthusiastic, cheerful group, fun to work with from beginning to end.  Thanks to you all, Gene, Shelley, Eve, Mandi, Jennifer, Arnie, others? and even Linda )who helped at the front desk during your conference.) Overall…it cannot be overstated that the team’s cross-knowledge, courtesy, cheerfulness and enthusiasm are imminently important. Indeed, this is what separates out successful companies. "
Dr. Richard Maastricht, DDS, USA, COL, (Ret.) & Carolina Diaz

Tom & Cheryl Hill

" Excellent service from start to finish!  A wonderful team of professionals! "
Ruben & Janene Velasquez

" We were overcome with gratitude to the Gene Arant Team with the sale of our home in Santaluz. The service was outstanding and Eve was one of the best, most timely communicators that I have ever worked with. Gene is unparalleled in his knowledge of the Steiner/Lakeway market and his marketing strategy delivered excellent results for us. Eve went the extra mile by coming to our house to pick up documents and made herself available to assist us throughout the process.  Abby made sure that we had all of the documentation prepared which resulted in a smooth closing under somewhat challenging circumstances. "
John & Andie Stafford - Steiner Ranch

" Loved everything about our home buying process in Texas. The Gene Arant Team did all of the work for us. We will definitely use them for our selling and buying again. "
Dan & Angela Hess

" It was a great experience working with the Gene Arant Team. Chris Gradt was our buying agent. He was always so professional and responsive and you can see his honesty in making us know were are in good hands finding the perfect house.  On top of Chris’ exceptional service, the rest of the Gene Arant Team was always there to fill in and support Chris and my husband and I to make the process go smoothly. We would strongly recommend the Gene Arant Team to help you buy or sell your home. "
Kevin & Thu Karpenske

" The proactive communication meant a great deal. It reassured us that the team was on top of things and brought up action items we wouldn’t have known about. Thanks for the great communication! "
Ryan & Amy Rounkle

"We sold our home in Steiner Ranch through the Gene Arant Team. Everyone we worked with was positive, professional, hardworking, and very knowledgeable of the Steiner Ranch area and of the whole process of selling a home. The communication was outstanding. It started with the pricing of our home and continued through the staging, feedback from showings, contract negotiation, closing, and getting ready to move. Gene was very helpful in mediation with the loan officer to provide comps to price our home correctly in the ever changing market. He provided us with contacts to help get our home ready for sale and even provided his own truck for us to use for items we did not want the movers to move. I would highly recommend the Gene Arant Team if you are considering selling your home. They took a lot of the anxiety out of the expericence. This was our fifth home to sell, and it was the smoothest experience of all."
Steve and Vicki Holt

"We enjoyed working with both Mandy and Heidi as they were both friendly and professional."
Alex and Ranetta Clarke

"The Gene Arant Team was always friendly, helpful, and professional. From the start I recieved excellent service.

Their professional knowledge sold my home. Thanks, you really work great as a team!"
Dick Kitchens

"It was an absolute pleasure working with the Gene Arant team when we purchased our home in Dripping Springs. Heidi was very knowledgeable about the area and really zoned in on the right area of Austin for our family! We loved having Heidi as our realator! Abigail also made the closing process easier to navigate. Great communication from everyone!!"

"Gene and his team recently soled a house for us in Falcon Head. The experience was exceptional from start to finish! From the Drone-driven video shoot, staging assistance, tireless marketing efforts and constant communication, I'm not sure we could have asked for a better experience. Oh yeah - the house sold in just over 30 days too. I recommend the Arant Team with no reservations."
James and Toni Brewer

"We had a great experience with Gene and all his team selling our house in Steiner Ranch.  It sold quickly and the follow through was great.  The ladies in the office made sure that we were informed up to and including the closing. Nothing but good things to say about our experience with Gene Arant-Keller Williams Realty!!  5 stars!"
Rosemary B

"Working with Gene and his team was an absolute pleasure. Our South Austin home was sold immediately and without any complaints or problems. We worked with Mandin Fulton on finding a home in Round Rock. This young lady was not only helpful, professional, and provided us excellent service. She was one of the most nicest and patient person we have ever been around. Gene Arant made us feel important to his business. They continue to assist us after buying a new home with any questions we have had. We are 100% happy with Gene, Mandi and all team members. Thank you!!!"
Joe and Norma Moran

"Great team to work with. They were extremely responsive, knowledgeable and have excellent service. Highly recommend this team!"
