Daphne was responsive on nights and weekends, and she always felt like she was on my side and had my best interests in mind. I had to trust her experience and expertise for much of the process of buying my first place, and I'm glad I did because it worked out great.Paul Neusch
Daphne is an incredible hardworking individual who really gave it her all while helping my wife and I find our first home. If you can't already tell by the decal on her car, she is very passionate about her work. She definitely took the time to get to know us and through house shopping she quickly picked up on our likes, dislikes, and wants for a home. She was never pushy, and was always straightforward and honest when she thought a home was marked too high, wouldn't meet appraisal, or was just not a right fit for us. She was extremely easy to get ahold of for questions through texts or calls, and was very descriptive of the whole process and always gave us a heads up on what the next steps would be. She also came in clutch during negotiations! We felt very secure and relaxed throughout the whole home buying process with her by our side. We have already recommended her to friends and will continue to do soNoah Lozada
Daphne was a great Realtor® for our first home! She was professional and friendly. She worked endlessly to show us the right home and once we did she helped us with the buying process the whole wayNick Pereira
Daphne was an excellent resource in our journey of buying our first home. We really had no idea where to start, but Daphne walked us through all the steps in the process and put us into contact with the right people and provided us with all the information we needed to make an informed decision. She was always available for questions and was awesome about keeping us in the loop on where we were in the process. She's also a very fun person to be around and has a great sense of humor. I will be contacting Daphne for all our future real estate needs. I can't recommend her enoughJeremy Hicks
Ms. Quay assisted us in locating and purchasing a townhouse. She provided exceptional guidance on exactly what to bid on our final choice. She was always immediately responsive throughout the entire process.Michele Bitters
Daphne was very helpful and knowledgeable. She was very responsive whenever I had a question or interest in a property. Couldn't have been happier with her commitment to helping me find the right property that was aligned with my real estate goals. Thanks again Daphne!Drake Whitehurst
Overall, everything went better than I expected. I got the home I wanted for less than I expected to pay (thanks to Daphne's negotiating). She was also very patient with us while we spent a long time reviewing and comparing the home listings she sent us daily. Highly recommended!Tom Van Scyoc
Daphne helped us find the perfect rental property in just a few days. She was very responsive, answering email and texts, and willing to show us properties any time and place. We have worked with a lot of real estate agents, and Daphne is one of the best.Karla Moyer
Daphne helped me find my first home, and I would definitely recommend her. She took the time to learn what I was looking for in a home and was not at all pushy. She has in-depth knowledge of the Austin market and patiently guided me through the home-buying process. Daphne's attention to detail and positive attitude made finding my first home more fun and enjoyable than I imagined it could beAshley Morgan
Daphne is the very best agent we have had. What a pleasure and what professionalism.Cynthia Gebhardt
Daphne is great. She found me a house in two days with local knowledge and helped me with my long distance move. She picked out a bunch of houses that suit my needs and saved a bunch of time and effort. Thanks so much!David Kin Li
Daphne Quay helped me find the perfect condo for my son, a freshman at UT Austin. As residents of Ohio, we were clueless about the Austin market. Daphne provided us with expert advice and kept us updated about new properties while we were in Ohio. After the purchase, when I had questions, Daphne continued to provide outstanding service. I can’t thank her enoughSharon Riegel
I worked with Daphne to sell my home and really can’t say enough good things about her. She is knowledgeable, approachable, personable, endlessly patient, and incredibly generous with her time (including mornings, evenings, and weekends over the course of several months). She answered every question and explained every form and every part of the process clearly and thoroughly. Selling a home in this market is challenging, but working with Daphne made it as painless and straightforward as possible. I highly recommend herVianey Vences
As first time homebuyers, my wife and I had many questions. Daphne was incredibly helpful and supportive throughout: patient, upbeat (but not pushy), professional, understanding of our preferences, and responsive/communicative — especially during high pressure moments in the process. We would both strongly recommend her for anyone seeking a house in Austin!Michael Hoffman
I can't say enough what a great agent she is, very knowledgeable, very patient, show me and tell me everything that I need to know, always return my call and kept me update, she stay with me until the deal is close now I got my new house, I am glad she is my agent.Alex Vatana
I would like to thank Daphne, she was wonderful in selling my rental property in North Austin. I am no longer in the Austin area, so everything had to be remotely done. Daphne assured me that would not be a problem. She was able to work with me and connect me with her network of professionals to get my property ready to sell. Daphne was very responsive to every question I had, wither it was by text, email or phone calls. Daphne multilingual skills were priceless, she was able to communicate the ongoing status of the sale process with the tenants. I would have needed a translator, and still, there would have been more questions than answers. I couldn't be happier with the whole process and how Daphne handled the whole process, if I ever buy or sell property in Austin, I'm calling Daphne for sureEric Brown
Daphne was a wonderful agent to work with. She handled the negotiations with the sellers in a most professional manner and attended to all the necessary paperwork for our purchase. Her responses to our questions were quick and she kept us abreast of all the steps in the purchasing process. Because we were out of state for the entire process, it was essential that we have someone working with us and for us that we could trust. We highly recommend Daphne for your real estate needs.Jan Sutton
Daphne was an absolute pleasure to work with, and I couldn't be happier with my decision to go with her! In addition to her deep knowledge of the market, impressive professionalism, and amazingly quick response time, I simply felt as if I was taken care of and that my best interests were put first through every step in the process. I trust her completely. I think it is that personal touch that puts her head and shoulders above her peersJim Lipari
Daphne was positive, helpful, and incredibly responsive throughout the short time we worked together. As a first time home buyer, I had some criteria in mind but still needed a lot of guidance. Daphne was patient and answered all my questions (along with my family's questions) throughout the entire process. I'm recommending her to anybody I know who is in need of a real estate agent.Priscilla Jenkins
