Alyse & Heart of Austin Homes Team is #1!! She helped me get my first home in Austin while I was still living in Florida. She looked at homes and made videos of the homes so I can see them from out of state, and was very thorough and helpful in her feedback… - I do believe my home purchase couldn't have been as smooth as it was without Alyse!”
"John was super knowledgeable about the Austin area and really listened to my want and needs when finding houses for me. He helped me find the perfect little rental home in a timely manner and at a great price in a cute neighborhood - I'd recommend John to anyone looking to buy a house in Austin!"
"Kate Rogers is the absolute best at Heart of Austin! We stumbled into an open house and met Kate and I am so glad we did. As first-time home buyers, my husband and I didn't know what to expect out of the process but Kate took the time to educate and coach us through each step of the way. From the moment we met Kate she made us feel taken care of and heard. We could trust Kate to listen to us and to fight for us to get what we wanted in this crazy market. The best part about Kate, aside from her sense of humor, is that she cares about you, listens to what you want, and makes that her priority. Kate is responsive, detail-oriented, and organized - she made the process as stress-free as possible. Thanks to Kate we got exactly what we were looking for - on the first offer because she is such a pro - I would recommend any first-time home buyer working with Kate."
"My wife and I were first-time home buyers and can't recommend Kate and the Heart of Austin Homes Team enough. Kate is friendly, knowledgeable, and very organized. She always took time to walk us through the details of all our options at every step of the process. When we wanted advice, she gave it (and it was good!), but we always felt like we were in the driver's seat and not being pressured to make any decision. I don't think buying a house can be stress-free, but Kate made it as fun and low stress as possible! We love our new house and gladly recommend Kate to anyone looking to buy."
"Alyse is literally the best agent you can have. She goes above and beyond on all aspects of selling a house. She recommended an excellent handyman for some simple upgrades, used an amazing photographer that made our house look fantastic, and held my hand every step of the way. The amount of money she got for our house was unthinkable. I still don't know how she did it (especially with the COVID craziness going on)! She is superwoman. You will not be disappointed if you hire Alyse!"
"John and Alyse were so extraordinarily helpful and went well beyond what would normally be expected of a real estate agent. They offer so much more.
I had to move out of town to change jobs with less than a months’ notice, and between finishing my job, starting a new one, finding a new place to live in another city, and actually moving, I was truly overwhelmed. John and Alyse came in and provided me multiple options. I chose to hand my keys over to them and let them do what they felt was best to get the top dollar for my house.
They worked as contractor, designer, real estate agent, and hand-holder (for me). They had the house cleaned out, put new flooring in, new counter tops, painted, etc. they had the place cleaned, staged, and professionally photographed. Most importantly, they kept me well informed throughout the entire process and made sure to get my approval at each step. They even put up with my overly stressed temperament with such ease and poise. As with all things there were unexpected occurrences along the way, and they easily adapted and made things right.
When it came time to sell, John suggested listing below what I was thinking, but I trusted his judgement and it paid off in spades. The house sold for well above what my expected high-end was. I couldn’t have been more pleased.
From start to finish, John and Alyse were professional, organized, thoughtful, friendly, knowledgeable, and effective. The communication between us was remarkable despite being located in two different cities.
I have never written a review for anyone, but I felt compelled to rave about them for all of their hard work. If you need a realtor in the Austin area, you can’t do better to than John and Alyse."
“Alyse is phenomenal. She alone made us feel confident in approaching the big life event of owning our first home. She knows the areas, the breakdown of what makes a house cost what it does, and how best to represent your needs and fight for them in the buying process. Above and beyond that, she is such an encouraging and lovely person. (She still emails us to see how we're doing and invites us to gatherings and holiday events). There are so many choices when buying or selling a home, Alyse is the best first choice to make.”
“I had a hard time finding a house in my budget, in a hot market, but Alyse really came through. She's very knowledgeable in her field as well as an experienced homeowner. She's also very warm and personable, with an enormous amount of patience. I'd highly recommend her.”
“John and the Heart of Austin Homes Team are extremely knowledgeable about the industry and are very helpful and accommodating. John has been great to work with and is accessible by phone or email seemingly 24/7. I can’t recommend this group enough.”
“Buying your first home can be a difficult and confusing experience, and Alyse with Heart of Austin Homes is exactly the kind of person you want by your side when taking this big step forward in your life. She has a genuinely kind and helpful spirit, and she looks out for your best interests every step of the way. She cares deeply about her clients and her community and uses this passion and her considerable skill and experience with real estate to make the difficult process of becoming a homeowner as painless as possible for you. I am very happy I was able to work with her when buying my first house, and even after I have completed my purchase she is still helping me with getting the necessary work done to my house and ensuring that my move in is going well. I am so grateful for everything she has done for me and hope to work with her again in the future.”
“John and his team have been of the utmost professionalism and delightful to work with. John makes the process so easy to understand and worked with us to ensure we achieve our goals and objectives. His knowledge of the market and experience is second to none and always on the lookout to help his clients going above and beyond. I have been working with John on multiple projects over the last couple of years and rely on him solely for all my real estate projects. I encourage everyone who is in need of an honest knowledgeable and effective real estate agent to give John a call.”
“I wouldn't dare go anywhere else. Alyse handled our move from West Texas to Hutto. She helped us get into a comfortable leased home on short notice then stuck around through the entire process and got us into our dream home in Hutto. She was always on top of things, gave open ideas and was the EXPERT in handling our purchase from beginning to end. Being a first time home buyer, she put to rest any myths of troubles when buying a home. Love being a new home owner, definitely made better by Alyse and Heart of Austin Homes.”
“John and Alyse have amazing attention to detail, coupled with passion and armed with data, they pack a powerful punch as a team. Our experience required them to be patient and attentive. Our needs changed a couple of times and required a great deal of patience on their part, we never saw them flinch or sweat and at every pivot, they held on and went above and beyond the average expectations. I'd recommend them to anyone looking to purchase a home.”
“Thank you John and Kate for helping us find our home in Austin. The process was very smooth and even when John was out of town on a conference Kate stepped right in to help us. Again Thank You.”
"I reached out knowing we would be relocating to Austin, even though we wouldn't be able to look in person yet. Not only was the organization and follow through unlike I had EVER experienced...but their commitment to finding YOUR HOME was so clear."
"They did an outstanding job the whole time. My husband and I have bought and sold several homes in Austin and this is the first time I would use the same agents again in the future… If you are looking for an agent, this is the team you want!"
We came to John and Alyse with a home that had been on the market for several months.
They took over our sales listing and they not only had our home under contract the first weekend but it closed in two weeks!!
The final sales price was over our asking price and the transaction was smooth as silk.
I would not hesitate to use them again. They were incredibly attentive and I fully trusted their ability to sell our home for us.
I have never worked with a real estate team that was as on top of their game as they are. Give them a call, you will be so pleased!!!
"I was expecting the experience of looking for a house to be quite stressful. In reality, this ended up being quite a fun and unique experience. Alyse has always been very responsive and always willing to answer questions through any means possible. She was able to accommodate my specific work schedule and communication preferences, even showing us properties late in the evenings. I was impressed with her flexibility and knowledge, and I would definitely recommend her to anyone looking for an AWESOME realtor."
"Alyse and her team did an amazing job through the whole process! I actually had a lot of fun working with her and her team plus she made the house buying process quite painless..."
"Heart of Austin Homes did an outstanding job all throughout our first-time home buying experience!! Alyse was very attentive to our home-buying needs. As first-timers, we had a LOT of questions. Not only did we find an amazing company to buy a house from, we also found great friends. We still keep in touch, and it warms my heart to know they are all authentic people that care about our experience
long after we signed the contract."
"John and Alyse helped me find a home in Austin's red-hot market where being able to react quickly can be important. In a matter of days, they helped me narrow down my list of favorites and make an offer that was accepted. They even traveled to one property I was interested in and made a video of it to save me having to go there if it wasn't for me. They guided me expertly through all the local procedures and answered all my questions cheerfully. John and Alyse are two of the warmest and most friendly people I've ever met, in addition to being at the top of their game in real estate. Highly recommend!"
"She invited us into a home she was doing an open house for and, while that home wasn't for us, we definitely knew we had found our realtor. We also had no idea what we wanted and changed our wants on her constantly, and she always came through with a smile and amazing energy. Without Alyse, we would not have found the home we're in love with today!"
"Alyse is the best! I found the experience of looking for a house quite stressful, but she actually made it feel fun and exciting. Her enthusiasm and eagerness to help you find exactly what's right for you is unparalleled in my experience with other realtors."
"...Alyse made everything easy. Everybody won."
"After contacting Alyse - we're much more comfortable and confident with the entire selling process. Alyse has been very responsive and always willing to answer questions. Alyse brings extensive knowledge and experience of the Real Estate market. We are thoroughly impressed by her market analysis and her preliminary assessment of our home."

"Alyse was always on our side helping us to understand the process and find the best deal. The best part about working with Alyse was that she was always focused on answering our questions, giving us good advice, and finding homes that met our needs, all of that with a big smile. We recommend Alyse 100%"
"What I appreciate about Alyse is her hustle. She doesn't let the grass grow under her feet. We had keys in hand of our new home 11 days after we hired her. That is no small feat in Austin"
“Alyse is FABULOUS! She really knows her stuff, and not only helped me to understand the process but helped me get through it as well. Selling a home can be a stressful experience, and Alyse was always there for me, every step of the way.“
