Until I met Cheryl, I was always under the assumption that real estate agents made some of the easiest money on earth. I was completely wrong. From the moment we first met her, she worked tenaciously, first to get our listing, then to sell it. She listened to our needs and helped us price our home accordingly. Given the price range for our home, we thought we'd be looking at a 6 month+ sales process. Instead, she put so much effort into the opening salvo that she had it sold within a couple of weeks of us signing the listing agreement. Given the complex marketing plan, which included films, brochures, advertisements and much else, she actually had the house sold before it was really fully on the market. Every time someone needed to see the house, be it for a showing, an inspector, appraiser, or surveyor, she was there to manage the process. She held our hand though the worrisome process between accepting the offer and closing. then, like a true professional, she took us out to lunch afterwards just to see if she could have done anything better.
She couldn't have improved on a thing.
I would recommend a family member to use Cheryl. I would send my best friend to her. And I recommend her to you.
Over the years I have purchased and sold 9 homes, utilizing a realtor on each end of the transactions. So I can say from experience that Chelsea Kumler is far and above all others in professionalism, responsiveness and efficiency. Chelsea smooths out any bumps in the road seamlessly. She is gracious, knowledgable and a delight to work with. I highly recommend Chelsea Kumler as one whom you can trust to handle your real estate needs.
I wanted to extend a complimentary message, regarding two agents at Turnquist Partners, to whomever it concerns.
My husband, Matt Johnson and I were referred to Eden from our real estate agent Joni James.
I'll start with Joni first. Joni reached out to us regarding a property listed that we had inquired about through email. This home was an amazing property but commanded so much structural repairs, we wanted to be sure of the asking price. Long story short, Joni assisted us with anything we needed throughout our buying process. From meeting us multiple times at the first home we viewed; connecting us with the right information to get approval for lending; to assisting us with the wording of an offer... EVERY step seemed seamless to us. While that home proved not to be the one for us, Joni met with us right away to search for other homes of interest, finally landing on the home we move into on Sunday! What I love the most about Joni is her level of knowledge as an agent, her eagerness to assist morning, noon, and night, her punctuality with promised forms, etc, and her personality. What an amazing agent! It is such a pleasure working with her!
Aside from finally purchasing our home, my husband and I had the daunting task of finding new tenants for the home we rented that still had us bound to 8 more months of our contract. Enter Eden Weiss. What a Godsend! Eden contacted me right away and explained the entire sub-letting process, which was so helpful as we really didn't understand our responsibilities by reading our contract. One thing Eden did remarkably well was to help us to be confident that she would get the home listed quickly and rented out. She definitely delivered on her promise! We were informed every time someone needed to come by the home to see it and were updated every time an application was submitted. As a side note, the landlord of whom we rent from can be a real turnoff to work with, often being unreasonable. Eden clearly had an ability to overcome this challenge. As a salesperson myself, I know that negotiating skills are hard to perfect without training and perseverance when it comes to difficult customers. Eden is a master! We love working with her. Efficient, honest, punctual, and very professional!
So... to whomever hired these two gems to work for Turnquist Partners... great job! We lucked out twice in a row from your agency... Or maybe it isn't luck at all. Maybe it is the sheer talent and professionalism you seek when adding agents. In any case, I would be most inclined to recommend both ladies.

As a managing partner for one of the largest commercial real estate brokerage companies in Austin I believe I have a unique perspective on quality service in the real estate industry; which is why I would like to recommend Jenny Tynes to anyone who might need residential brokerage services.
Jenny recently completed the sale of a residential property for my wife and me, and I can say that she expertly guided us through the entire process. As a seller in a down market, she gave us prudent advice on when to stand firm and when we should recognize the reality of the economy. She paid attention to every detail including readying the property for sale, marketing, and negotiations. In the end, Jenny delivered what I consider an above market price in a very adverse market. Also and I consider this equally important to her expertise, Jenny provided her service in a very polite, always positive frame of mind, many times when the situation did not warrant it.
I highly recommend Jenny and would be glad to serve as a reference to anyone who is interested.
