Client Testimonials

Tye Truitt was our Realtor on the recent sale of our home. Unlike most of Austin, properties on the north side of Lake Travis are slower to sell. Tye's creativity and expertise accomplished the task when we were about to give up hope that we could ever move on to pursue a new adventure. Not only did Tye put our home on the MLS and the usual web sites but also had us in areas out of town that were known for seeking Austin properties. We would find our listing in Luxury home magazines, New York Times, California publications as well as foreign resources to name a few. The huge Sotheby's network was an invaluable tool that gave us world wide exposure. In addition Tye not only helped us to stage our home but is also an excellent photographer who created a beautiful listing brochure. He also used an ingenious technique to take overhead photos that maximized the setting of our lakefront home. In addition, he employed a drone to video our property that created a spectacular visual effect. The process of creating a strategy for the sale was always pleasant and never did we feel pressure to drop our price or give up value. Tye was always quick to follow up on a showing to return feedback and explain the options we had to address buyers' concerns. He made documents, plans etc. available to prospective buyer's agents, and never failed to impress with the provided information. During periods when we felt disappointment with the response to a showing he kept us positive and made the process go forward. If I had to pick his strongest asset, I would probably say it was his tenacity in the pursuit of every potential sale. During the negotiation when we found our buyer, he was professional and a strong negotiator. Since the closing he has remained in touch and has even contacted Sotheby's agents in Greece where we are currently considering a purchase. You would be wise to use Tye as your agent and I give him my highest recommendation.

One of the things I really liked about Tye was his ability to listen to what we wanted and then act on it. Too many times I’ve worked with Realtors that had their own ideas on what we wanted and didn’t listen all that much to what we were saying. I also liked his candor, giving us straight answers to hard questions. And most importantly, at the end of the day, or as was true in our case, at the end of the weekend we had a great house. I don’t think we could have done it as easily with someone else, so thank you again for going the extra mile. And finally, I really liked Tye's follow through. Once the sale was done and closed, he was still there to give us recommendations for services, handymen, etc. Now that’s good customer service. If I’m in the market for any more properties in Austin, Tye will be my first call!

Tye Truitt is a highly energetic and motivated Realtor who has demonstrated a willingness and ability to listen carefully and meet my timelines and expectations for each of the properties we have worked on; the sale of a country property in Wimberley, a local property close to downtown Austin, and my current residence in Barton Creek. Tye has a winning personality and he listens when I want to make changes with the presentation of my property or desired financial outcomes. He has also been responsive when I wanted to make changes with the core group of people we were working with. I have been most impressed with Tye’s advertising. The quality of the photos and the written explanation of my property has been top notch! I could not have found anyone who is better in this realm. I would and have personally recommended Tye to others. He is young, enthusiastic and has a great future in real estate!
- Jeri DeAngelis
Tye was an absolute pleasure to work with. We had challenging circumstances - limited time being from out of town, a hectic work schedule while getting a new business off the ground, and a young family to manage. He made our search efficient no matter how complicated our schedules became. His full service approach and creative solutions to seemingly insurmountable obstacles freed us up to focus on selecting the right area and house. His professionalism, attention to detail, and in depth knowledge of the Austin economy made us glad he was on our side and not just someone trying to make a quick sale. I highly recommend Tye to anyone who wants a true advisor in addition to a personable and professional Realtor.

I wanted to thank you again for representing me. You were so thorough and professional in handling every single detail throughout the process. I can’t begin to tell you how impressed I was with your knowledge and expertise. I felt very confident in the entire process because I knew you were looking out for my best interests at all times, as well as cementing the best deal for me. You made me feel confident at all times even when I became ill. I truly appreciate all of your efforts in making my dreams come true with the purchase of my new waterfront property. I know that you went the extra mile to make me happy and handle details when I could not get to the property since I don’t live near Lago Vista. I never knew how many things were involved in buying a waterfront property. Your knowledge and negotiating abilities were amazing and I will never forget the experience even down to the last moments. I learned that there are good Realtors and then there are spectacular Realtors, which is you. You are very special and I feel lucky that my daughter told me to call you. You didn’t waste my time or yours because you jumped on my request right away and found the perfect property in my price range with the proper number of bedrooms. I know that my father would be very pleased with you and my new purchase since this was a gift from him. My dad had a similar personality to yours so I always felt comfortable. l will certainly call you in the future if the occasion arises. I think you are so adorable in how you handle yourself even in the most difficult circumstances. Thank you again. Sincerely, Dr. Brooky Sanders, DDS

Without Tye's photos depicting our property in its best possible light, and in addition to his unbelievable response time in person or email and attention to details so consistently rendered by him and Kuper Sotheby Int’l Realty, in my opinion, we would not have achieved the pricing he was able to obtain. While I was confident the property enjoyed features that others did not, it was how the property was presented that stole the show. Furthermore, Tye was practical as to the refurbishments necessary to realize the net sales pricing desired, which was appreciated. This was very nice work. You did not request this, but be assured that we would recommend Tye and Kuper Sotheby's International Realty to anyone selling or buying a home in Austin, with highest confidence. We thank you!

We cannot thank Tye Truitt enough for helping us find our dream home. As we've relayed to friends and family time and again, we have no doubt that we would not be in this home if not for him. From the beginning, Tye asked all the right questions to truly understand what we wanted in a home and showed us houses we would actually consider. Knowing that we still had not found the "right one," Tye kept his ear to the ground to bring us new options as soon as they were on the market. In fact, because of Tye's quick work, we were able to view our eventual home as soon as it was available and before the open house the following day. He quickly turned out an offer, and it was accepted within 24 hours! Buying a home can be a muddled process, and ours was a little unique with current tenants, an out-of-town seller, etc. Tye values communication with his clients, and he explained every step in detail so we were never surprised. We plan on being in this home for many, many years, but whenever we find ourselves in the market again, we'll definitely enlist Tye's help again.

I just closed on my second real estate deal with Tye and yet again I was blown away by his service; his professionalism, shrewdness and attention to detail was consistently impressive. But what was most remarkable about Tye was his ability to truly listen to me to determine the best path for realizing my wants and needs as a client. Throughout the process, Tye's advice and movements were constantly focused around my goals and in some cases, patiently saved me from myself. He is a true joy to work with and I cannot recommend him highly enough!

As first-time home buyers, my wife and I were a little nervous about making the jump to own, but Tye -from start to finish- made everything easy. Tye has an intimate knowledge of the Austin area and its neighborhood's, which was an extremely valuable resource for us. Moreover, his work ethic and dedication to his clients is unmatched. After months of searching, Tye found us the perfect home (10 days before our wedding day). Tye went beyond the extra mile to get the deal done while my wife and I were swamped finalizing wedding details. His hard work and perseverance was paramount in us closing on time, and we couldn't be happier with the results. For anyone looking to buy or sell in Texas, I highly recommend hiring Tye Truitt as your Realtor.

I would like to take this opportunity to comment on what a great job Tye did selling my home in Panther Creek. I can say that with his experience, talent, professionalism, and attention to detail, I was 110% pleased working with him and I honestly believe that he got top value for the home. Not only that but he made the process as painless as possible and it was evident he had my full interest in all matters 110% of the time. His expertise in marketing the home was awesome - from photos (which he did personally) to brochures to a website. I would further say that not only did he do a fantastic job in all the "professional" areas but he takes his job to another level on the personal side as well. Tye gets it!!! It is my pleasure to recommend Tye and his team to any potential client, seller or buyer that wants top value for their home with a personal touch that he delivers. On a scale of 1 to 10 Tye delivers an 11!

Tye treats his clients with the utmost respect. As a young couple going through the home buying process for the first time, Tye went above and beyond to educate us and provide direction where needed. For us, this provided the one-on-one attention we needed to make this very important decision in our lives. Tye is a seasoned pro which shines through in his work ethic and etiquette. We couldn’t be more pleased with this experience and look forward to the opportunity to work with him again in the future.
- Josh and Renna Berman
I have had the good fortune of working w/ Tye and his client's for a few years now and I know him to be the consummate professional. His knowledge of the real estate market and his close attention to detail make working with him very gratifying. I would recommend Tye and his real estate services to anyone looking for someone authoritative to advise them on their next home purchase.
- Aurelius Sofia
Talented, creative, knowledgeable, client-focused, tenacious are all words that describe Tye Truitt. Not only is Tye a conscientious and smart real estate professional, but he is also able to leverage his experience to implement sound and creative marketing ideas, communication strategies, excellent photography and videography representations of properties, interesting social media efforts, and his key relationships to sell homes. His interest in satisfying buyer's needs, dreams and wants enables Tye to find just the right neighborhood and home for his clients. Tye is the consummate professional and is an extremely hard worker who becomes a friend to those he represents. I highly recommend Tye as your real estate consultant.
- Robin C
What we appreciated most about working with Tye is that we always felt like he had our backs. He didn't want us to make a bad decision and regret it later on down the road....and we didn't because of him. He came highly recommended and was always there to answer our calls or meet us at a house when we needed him. Thank you, Tye!
- Thomas and Allison Swafford
As newcomers to Austin, we needed preliminary scouting of the area and real estate market. So, weeks before our visit we had extensive e-mail exchanges where Tye provided us with all the requested info and a deep and sharp analysis on dozens of listing that could work. These "lessons" were so useful that when the time came for our visit, it was easy to hit the target in a couple of days and close the following week. Tye's patience, competence, sharpness and style are surely at the top of what you can ask of a professional. Even months after our purchase, Tye remains our point of reference for any counseling/referrals regarding our property, be it taxes or even a suggestion for the best handyman! We definitely recommend Tye to anyone wanting to buy or sell in Texas!
