Happy Clients

We received 3 quality references from your team, however after completing our research, one stood “head and shoulders” above the others and was the right fit for our Mom. We selected The Friend Team, Janette Friend-Harrington and Doug Harrington of eXp Realty, LLC in Austin, TX. Our Mom is elderly with some recent health problems and my wife and I are helping her relocate to our home in Virginia, so that we can help take better care of her. Janette has been fantastic thus far, with the preliminary visit to review Mom’s home and the following visit to sign the listing agreement. She has been an excellent communicator and coordinator, while keeping our Mom, my wife and I thoroughly informed throughout the process thus far. Our Mom was overwhelmed with the prospect of selling her home before we found Janette. She is now feeling much better with it all and actually having fun in the process. Thanks to this fantastic ELP. Janette has proven to be a compassionate and consummate professional thus far.”

Happy Clients

“Truly the best experience! I would recommend Janette and Doug to any first time home buyer in Austin. They are prompt, knowledgeable and not at all pushy when it comes to finding the right home for you. My fiancé and I truly knew nothing about the home search and buying process, but they led us through it seamlessly and answered all questions. We looked at many homes and Doug/Janette were both quick to voice concerns if they saw anything worrisome. If you are buying a home – you can count on Janette and Doug!!”

– M Koch

Happy Clients

“I was in Hawaii, when I first contacted Janette by phone. She was the answer to my prayers. My sister had been trying to sell her home on and off with other agents, for the last three years. Janette never wavered in her commitment in helping my sister sell her home in Cedar Park, Tx. No matter how detailed and involved the job was, Janette gave more than anyone person should be expected to. That is just the way she works. All of her, all of the time, when she’s working. It took nine full months to sell and close on my sister’s home. This work also involved her supervising major repairs on my sister’s home. As well as negotiating multiple offers through the nine months, until my sister’s house was sold and closed. I would recommend her to the WORLD. Her Company, Coldwell Banker United is very lucky to have her. She is truly one of a kind. Thank you my friend, Janette”

“Our Realtor, Doug Harrington, was Phenomenal! From the first contact to the closing was over 18 mo. He was very accommodating to our family and as we searched exhaustively for everything we wanted in a property, and kept our best interests in mind at all times. I don’t think another Realtor would have or could have served us any better. My family & I will be eternally grateful for not only having Doug as our real estate agent, but now having Doug as our friend.”

“It has been wonderful working with Janette. Very pleasant and positive with my husband and me in all ways. I would recommend her 100%. She is a star for you. Thanks to her, we were very satisfied”.

– Jolene B.

Happy Clients

“Rather than try to make this job change while we were in debt, we chose to change the way we live before we reduced our income. You told us about Dave Ramsey and what being completely debt-free would do for us. We prayed a lot and then decided to just go for it. …But the best part is that I have more time to spend with our son! Thank you for your part in being a spiritual steward, and for caring so deeply for us. Doug and you were a big part of helping us to see how much better things could be for us!”
