There’s a simple answer. We don’t subscribe to a one size fits all strategy when it comes to purchasing a home. Not all buyer goals are the same. Tell us what you want.
Here’s how we differ from than any other real estate agency…
- First, we listen…
Your goals are the first thing we consider when we begin the buying process. Do you commute or work from home? What do you need to be close to: schools, shops, recreation? How long do you plan to live in this home? Are you looking to find the best deal that may need improvements or do you want a move in ready home? Before we focus on the square footage and the number of bedrooms, we listen to your needs, and only then do we begin to search for the right home.
- Prepare you to buy…
Many of our buyers come to us with financing already in place, but if you haven’t decided on a lender, we’ll recommend some of the best professionals in the area to help you secure a loan. At this point, we’ll also integrate your immediate and long-term needs into the process. How long can you wait to find the right home? Do you need any help relocating? What services will you need before and after you move in? We’ll address all of your needs as we begin the home buying process.
- Choose the right Neighborhood…
Westlake offers something for everyone. Are you looking to live on or close to the lake with water access? How about a gated community? Specific schools? Neighborhood park or pool? We’ll listen to your needs and find the neighborhood and the home that best suits your unique lifestyle, finding a balance between the surrounding area and the home itself. We’ll also evaluate the right price point, looking not only for a home you can afford, but also for a home that affords the lifestyle you want.
- Find the right home
Once we begin the search, we’ll reach out to our network of Westlake agents to see if they have any currently available or soon-to-be-listed properties that match your needs. All too often, Westlake properties are bought as soon as they hit the market, and our close ties with area agents can be the key to getting you in the right home – even one that hasn’t been listed.
- Last, we get results

“My wife and I worked with Andrea to purchase our home. Andrea smoothed out the ups and downs of the process and made sure we got what we wanted. Since, we have recommended her to all of our friends, and those who worked with her agree Andrea is a trustworthy professional who is very good at her job. I will go to her with all of my future real estate needs.”
“Andrea is a personable, kind, and patient Realtor. She truly listened to our wants and needs for purchasing a home. We had some unforeseen issues when closing on our home, but she was with us every step of the way. We would recommend Andrea to anyone we know. When we decide to sell our home, we will enlist her help once again. The best part of working with Andrea is that we walked away from our business relationship feeling as though we had gained a new friendship. We highly recommend Andrea!”
“Andrea was very knowledgeable and helpful throughout the entire relocation process. She did an excellent job recommending areas and finding us a home that fit our specific needs. It was obvious that she put our needs first. I would recommend Andrea to anyone without hesitation. She made the process of finding and closing on a home in Austin enjoyable for the whole family.
“My fiancée and I worked with Andrea to purchase our home and we highly recommend her! She was a pleasure to work with through the whole process and she handled a number of unusual circumstances very smoothly and effectively. She also continues to provide personalized market information upon request. We’ve become good friends and as I get to know her better, I can only recommend her more.”
I went with Andrea based on a recommendation and was very pleased. Andrea was patient, answered all of my questions and supported me taking my time and researching. The result was the right house for me at a fair price. I highly recommend Andrea with Harlan Realty Group.”
“Andrea answered all of my questions and walked me step-by-step through the process. She provided me with valuable resources and went above and beyond her duties as a real estate agent. She also helped negotiate a great price, which really helped my budget. I felt so confident buying my first home with Andrea, I also used her as my realtor 5 years later when I sold that same house, and made a nice profit! I would highly recommend her to anyone purchasing or selling a home.”
