Favorite Places in Austin
Robie and her husband both love a great cup of coffee or cold beer, so you’ll often spot them at Radio, a casual bar that serves up their two favorite drinks. Robie also enjoys the local brews and delicious homemade pastries served at Easy Tiger in East Austin. When the kids are in the mood for pizza, the family heads to St. Philip Pizza Parlor for a unique spin on classic pies.
Buying a new house can be very trying, especially if one lives in a state other then where they are trying to buy. Robie Dodson was wonderful to work with. She sought out homes in my price range, went to view them sent videos, photo's and even face timed with me nearly daily when she though she had found a good one. In today's hot market in Austin, houses in my price range were selling in one day and Robie was on top of the market and out looking at places every morning and keeping me posted throughout the day so that I was able to make educated decisions. Robie also kept me grounded and focused especially when I was getting frustrated and overwhelmed! I am now the owner of a home in Austin and I have Robie to thank for the smoothness of the process from viewing, to documents, through closing. Great experience!Kathy Prows
I've known Robie Dodson for years as a friend, and I was super pleased that she was our listing agent when we sold our south Austin home. I like to say that Robie plays hardball with a smile. She has a way of negotiating the best terms for her client while maintaining her natural charm and the utmost professionalism. She is a born realtor. Thanks to Robie's eye for staging, our average looking home transformed into a beauty and sold very quickly. We have bought and sold 4 homes now, and Robie is honestly the best realtor we've ever had. Thanks Robie!Cristina Crow
Robie Dodson was amazing. Right away she "got" my wife and I and was able to find us a variety of homes that fit our location desires, taste, and budget. As we looked at a number of options Robie was patient and offered great wisdom—often at her own expense. In the end she found us the perfect house. We couldn't be happier.Jason Tilley
If you want a realtor who is going to treat you like family and protect you from sketchy sellers, look no further than Robie Dodson. My husband and I purchased our first home in Austin while we were still residing out of state! That can be a recipe for disaster, especially if you have a realtor who is more concerned about getting you to buy as soon as possible so that they can collect their commission and move on to the next client. But Robie is an absolute gem. As first-time home buyers, she walked us through each step at our own pace and graciously answered our mountain of questions. Other awesome Robie details:* She's a hard worker! She ran all around town to different houses to take pictures and video for us out-of-staters.* She doesn't take crap from untrustworthy sellers. * She always has your best interest in mind* She'll make you feel like family! She took us to Sonic for our first Cherry Limeade experience. * She knows Austin inside and out, let her know what you're looking for and she'll find it for you.I could go on! If you're looking to buy in Austin, do yourself a HUGE favor and get in touch with Robie!Emily Hopkins
My husband and I just closed on our first home last week, and we could not be more thrilled with Reilly Realtors! We had the opportunity to work with Robie Dodson, and we highly recommend her. She was in constant communication with us, and we felt like her biggest priority. She answered our endless questions on home buying, as my husband and I were both rookies before purchasing this home! I really can't recommend Robie enough! She made this whole process FUN, and I wouldn't change a thing if we had to do it all over again. All credit for finding us our dream home goes to Robie!!Whitney Black
I cannot recommend Robie Dodson at Reilly Realtors highly enough. As out-of-town buyers looking to buy a home in Austin (where our son, his wife, and our soon-to-be first grandchild live), we needed a realtor who was responsive, proactive, and trustworthy. Given the crazy Austin real estate market, our original agent had not been able to be as available or responsive as we needed. So we were recommended to Robie and we never looked back. Robie was absolutely on top of the market, understood what we were looking for, and responded promptly to every one of my questions and inquiries. In fact, after spending a couple of days with me looking at properties, she understood what we wanted so well that we ended up buying a property on her recommendation, without ever seeing the property until we were already in escrow. Robie is absolutely trustworthy, a skilled negotiator who knows how to pick her fights, and an absolutely delightful person to boot! I highly recommend her without reservation.Sandy Tholen
Robie Dodson was our realtor, and people, if you want to treat yourself, enlist her today! Buying a home in Austin was a rather daunting task initially, but once we had Robie on our team it became a dream experience. Organized, knowledgable and kind - she explained all the details, she did the foot work hunting down homes that fit our wish/need list, and she was our cheerleader during all the decision making. I cannot stress enough that not only having a realtor, but having Robie, is the key to turning your home buying experience from a headache to a fun and exciting memory. She even provided GREAT referrals for a mortgage companies, inspectors, etc. We closed in two weeks and are now living in the home of our dreams!Sarah Helfenstine
Robie Dodson was amazing. She listed my home and it was sold before it was actually on the market. This is the first time I had an agent listen to me and address concerns no matter how small. This sale was one of the smoothest and easiest I have ever experienced. From the listing, showings, and contracting process was seamless. If I ever sell/buy again, I will definitely use this firm and Robie.Allison Leone
Robie Dodson for the win! Professional, helpful, hard-working, and overall so fun to work with! We were actually sad when we did close on a house, because it meant we wouldn't be spending as much time with Robie! Robie made it happen for us and helped us get into our home in record time. Would highly recommend having Robie in your corner!Travis Black
You cannot pass up the opportunity to work with Robie Dodson! We were first time home sellers and had a few extra complicated issues because of a small business I had been running from home. Robie went above and beyond on each aspect of the sell. For example, If we needed to get something notarized, she'd not only inform us, she'd send us the locations of the three closest notaries. She made the difficult process of selling our home as easy as it could have possibly been. She was available and responsive throughout the entire process. I couldn't have asked for anything more. Such a pleasure to work with her. Oh, and she'll keep you laughing through the entire process which is pretty difficult when selling a house :)Julia Kevon
