TESTIMONIALS FROM OUR RAVING FANS
Wish I would have used they guys instead of the realtor I used in Austin. I had talked to Shawn about my house (listing price, current market analysis in my area, method to market) and he was "right on". The realtor I had used previously (3 years earlier) before I removed it from the market proved to be a real disappointment. She had no clue about what to appropriately list the house at. I had to force it higher myself, but it was still too low. Sold the house in a day and left significant money on the table. The agent insisted that it was not priced too low.
Then the agent flew off to Europe for 3 weeks and dropped the ball 2 or 3 more times before we almost didn't close. If I could do it over again, it would be with Culhane.

Kristina Foster with Culhane was awesome! This was our first time selling a home and from the start, she put our minds at ease. From beginning to end, everything went so smoothly. We highly recommend her!jessicaf 1985
Susan and I want to express our most sincere thanks to you and all the amazing professionals there at Culhane Premiere Properties. This was our first experience with a full team of specialists, and I can safely say it won't be our last.
Selling our home was emotionally difficult considering we bought our home expressly to increase our son's quality of life, and also to make it easier for us to care for him. His loss left us quite unsure about what our future should hold. The compassion shown to us at all times during the selling and buying process made the difficult bearable. We fell in love with the new house and know in our hearts it will play a big part in our healing process. You and your team dealt with both the conceivable and inconceivable perfectly in stride. Purple kitchens, deceased deer, ground shaking explosions and septic tank insanity - all in a day's work for the CPP group.

From start to finish Shawn and his team provided the plan and the vision to help us 'move-up' from our starter home into our 'forever' home.
Their attention to detail and inclusion of the staging appointment and professional photography were the true details that helped set them apart from other realtors. Our home was only on the market for 4 days and we had 19 offers, so they must have done something right!ATXCyclone
Scott, Diana, and Dorothy have all been very helpful in the sale of my home. They have been very attentive and thorough in explaining the entire process. They were readily available to answer any questions and I felt the presence of the entire team working hard to sell my property. I highly recommend them if you are thinking of selling your home.Hector S.
Elizabeth was our agent and she is wonderful!! She was very quick to return phone calls, emails and to get information to us that we requested. A pleasure to work with.charlottelight
I was extremely happy with the process that I received from Eric. He discussed with us what needed to be done to move the house quickly. This included a stager coming in and going through our house. She was able to guide us on what needed to be done. None of them were extreme. We quickly got the check list done and pictures were taken. We had been with another realtor and had no movement at all. With Eric, we immediately started getting traffic. Within a week, we had more traffic than we had, the entire 6 months with another broker. Within a couple of weeks, we had an offer and sold. We got what we wanted and are very happy with the job that Eric did for us.timc0203
Always willing to go the extra mile to help us find what we were looking for. Was always available when we needed him to show us a property and was kind and knowledgeable.kenroreeves
Our experience was great! They were professional, had good communication, and we had no issues. When the buyer came back with some unrealistic expectations, Shawn worked over the weekend into the wee hours of the evening to get it resolved and it was a pretty quick turnaround. In the actual closing process, I didn’t even need Shawn there because of all the paperwork and preparation he put into it.Reggie G.
Scott came to twenty-six(!) home showings because we were rather picky in looking for very good deals middle-to-end of the recession. We even had to put our search on hold for over 6 months during a pregnancy yet he was always patient, always arrived before we did, and always with comp list in hand. He provided great area advice to make us aware of pros and cons to a specific area we didn't realize and worked tirelessly to counter offer once we find the home we still really like even nearly two years later!Borgstrand
Our experience with Culhane Properties was excellent. They helped us sell two lots that had several logistical challenges. They were highly professional in every way: prompt, thorough, and knowledgeable. When we needed to make adjustments and deal with real estate issues, they worked swiftly to complete changes. We will enthusiastically recommend Culhane Properties to anyone with real estate needs.eaglehaslanded55
My experience with Culhane from start to finish was outstanding. Specifically, with my real-estate agent Matthew Morales. He went above and beyond for me. Was always on time and answered any questions or concerns I had. I will be recommending them to all of my friends and colleagues.tsukara101
Culhane Homes and our representative, Diana Leyva treated us like we were her only clients even though she has many, and gave us white glove amazing customer service. She has an impressive knowledge of the market, and really listens to her clients' needs. She was quick to respond and really helped us through many of our own challenges in the selling process. Diana is a rock star realtor and I would highly recommend her and use her again for the future. She made this process as painless as possible and got us the most bang for our buck, and then some! She does what it takes to get the job done in the quickest manner possible. Love love love her and the Shawn Culhane experience!user31424955
Chris was responsive and very professional. He became familiar with what we were looking for and was able to recommend listings at that point for us to look at. He was a good source of feedback during the negotiation process as well.lenzfamily
Shawn and his team at Culhane Properties were a joy to work with. He is very flexible and fair in structuring an agreement that meets the clients' requirements. He takes a very active role in the marketing of your property and the pictures, videos, campaigns, etc. resulted in continuous views, showings, and qualified interest from prospective buyers. He is certainly the most impressive listing agent we have had (this was our 13th move in 40 years). He represented us professionally, diligently, and fairly in negotiating a competitive price for the property. We would recommend him to anyone without reservation.rsherman5
Extremely helpful and very professional, Shawn is a great realtor. She helped us find our home in little time and meeting all our criteria. I would use Shawn again giving the choice.gmorren
We've had a very busy year!! But I do want to add my comments on my experiences with Chris DeTrinis at Culhane! He was absolutely the best. We are old enough to be his grandparents! We were looking for a second/retirement home in the Leander, Texas area. Wanted somewhere close to our kids and my sister who lives in Georgetown. Chris took the time to understand our unique needs and did an outstanding job helping us find just what we wanted. He made me feel very comfortable with my decisions, but didn't pressure me to act. We decided to purchase a new build home, and he was with us every step of the way. We've had agents that drop out of sight once the builder contract is negotiated only to return on closing day. Not Chris! He was great and helped with every question we had! If we didn't already have five kids, I think I would have adopted him! Good Luck Kiddo!! Thanks for the help.lnstrldy1836
We sold our home and are buying our new house through Culhane Premier Properties. Elizabeth did a great job and went above and beyond in every aspect of selling our home. They had a team of people to helped us prepare to sell our home - stager, professional photographer and marketing brochures. We had an offer within 4 hours of being on the market. Elizabeth was very professional and made every effort to make the selling process as stress free as possible.mmaulia
I highly recommend Shawn & his team for anyone looking to buy/sell a home in the Austin area. My wife and I were new to town and Scott Ewell & team at Culhane Properties was nothing short of awesome to work with. They took care of absolutely everything from start to finish and really went above and beyond to ensure we found the perfect home at the right price. They worked really really hard for us, which is hard to find these days and we can't express how grateful we feel to have found someone who obviously valued our time & money. You won't regret working with them!Carter N.
Our experience with the folks at Shawn Culhane was an absolute dream. We tried to sell our home with some conventional one-man realtor years before, with almost zero response/interest. So glad to have found the team approach at Shawn Culhane this time! They never left us in the dark; we never had to guess where we were in the process. From their expert Stager's advice to lightning-fast responses to our questions/concerns, the Culhane team exceeded expectations. Thank you Diana, Jennifer, Scott, and the phenomenal Krissy for getting us an excellent offer in 3 days, and leading us through the landmines between that moment and closing. Shawn Culhane is unequivocally the Tiffany's of Austin Real Estate.tdsbatman
Great Experience! We loved the constant and timely communication Kristina provided. She took on our purchase personally and worked hard as an advocate for us. Thank you!javajane888
We just wanted to let you know how much we are enjoying our new home and our new neighborhood here in Taylor. We feel that we are really getting acclimated into Taylor and the Texan way of life and we just love it! If it wasn’t for all of your time, hard-work and skill, we couldn’t have done it without you, Barry Mott. You really came through for us and we brag about you to all our friends all the time.
Thank you again and again and again! We are eternally grateful!lauriegsmol
We just purchased our first home from Scott, and let me tell you... Scott Ewell with Culhane Properties is a class act― patient, honest, and well informed about the area. I know that we were not Culhane Properties only client at the time we were looking to buy our house, but we felt like Scott's only clients. My Wife and I had been looking for a house for over a year. We fired more than one real estate agent due to lack of attention, and/or difficult interactions.Robert C.
I lost a leg in a motorcycle accident, and when looking for properties he made sure to check for excessive steps, narrow doorways and hallways, and high inclines on driveways and sidewalks. He even lifted my 70lbs wheelchair into the back of his own truck, unloaded it at each property, and loaded it back up again. He did so for weeks without complaint or mention of inconvenience. In fact, he seemed to take joy in providing assistance. We looked at several homes, at my insisting, that were simply a bad fit― homes with tight corners and narrow hallways, small kitchens and hard to get through front, rear, and bedroom doors. Scott humored me, and without complaint took us to the next house. Sometimes we spent 5 minutes in a house before proceeding to the next, sometimes we didn't even get out of the car. Scott never showed any signs of even the slightest irritation at what other agents flat out stated was a waste of time.
We felt like we were looking for houses with a close friend rather than a real estate agent.
My Wife and I trust Scott emphatically, and recommend him exclusively to both friends and family.
We thoroughly enjoyed our experience with Culhane Properties. They were thorough and were always there to answer all our questions. We would advise anyone to use their expertise! They WILL TAKE CARE OF YOU and make selling a good experience. We have used other realtors at various times and none came close to Culhane!! We would for sure recommend them to anyone selling in the Austin area!steve smith
What can I say, I had a contract within 12 hours of the first day of showing for the price I was asking for with a backup buyer ready to make an offer. The closing went very well without any problems.frank ward8
Shawn Culhane is an amazing young professional! I moved into my 93-year-old mother's residence to care for her and decided to sell my residence. I had received a letter from Culhane Properties and gave them a call and upon my first meeting with Shawn I was so impressed that I signed an exclusive contract with him that day. Shawn has amazing software that allows you to see how many visits are made to your residence and offers prospective buyer's comments as well. Shawn put together a very professional brochure after having his professional take wonderful photographs of my residence. I believe there were 50 visits and it only took 32 days to sell my residence! I would recommend Shawn Culhane to anyone who truly wants to sell their residence expediently, for you will be represented by a true professional who possesses integrity and is always accessible if you have any questions or concerns. Shawn Culhane is someone you will not forget. He will be with you through the entire process of buying a new residence or marketing your current residence with professionalism, integrityTexasStar777
Eric is the best agent I have worked with in 41 years of real estate deals. My wife, son and I trust him completely. He has guided and advised us throughout this difficult sale and multiple "near-closings". He continues to keep me out of legal troubles, and Mary and I look forward to our next deal with him.zuser20141111200544958
This is the first time we have ever used a real estate agent for leasing our home and our relator, Matthew Morales, was outstanding. He worked very hard to ensure our needs were met in terms of the lease. He was enthusiastic and negotiated with great skill. We are most thankful for his wisdom, kindness and professionalism.
Danny and Ruthmertons2002
Shawn and his team did a fantastic job helping us purchase one home and sell another. We changed the profile of our search on a number of occasions (i.e. lakeside homes to hill country homes to “land + build” combinations and finally back to hill country). Shawn was exceptionally flexible and never got frustrated. Ultimately, we paused the search for a couple of months. However, he had captured the our latest home preferences and had automated emails go out as homes hit the market that potentially fit what we were looking for. When one came across that caught our attention, Shawn made himself available literally on the spur of the moment to go see it, and we ultimately moved forward with the home. Subsequent to that, he helped us sell our condo in Austin and everything from the staging to the sales collateral to the showings and onto the close was extremely smooth. He’s got a fantastic team as well, including both Scott and Chris. Very happy to recommend Culhane Properties.Hans and Ariel
When my husband and I decided to move to the Austin area from the Gulf coast 4 years ago, we connected with Shawn Culhane through an online real estate advertisement. We weren't even sure what area we wanted to live, but Shawn was very patient with us and showed us many properties from Leander and Cedar Park to Lakeway, Spicewood, and Bee Cave. Shawn was always available for us and always eager to assist us in our decision making. I would recommend Culhane Properties to anyone in a heartbeat.marykay null
To Whom It May Concern, The service and personal attention we received from Culhane Premier Properties was exceptional and unexpected from a Realtor! Shawn Culhane went above and beyond meeting our every need. They are truly a high-calibre team. Most notably, Shawn Cuhane's knowledge of the local market and his key contacts in the community helped us in our search for our dream home. For two entire days he drove us all over looking at homes he felt we would be interested in. He was very prepared and after patiently going through listings and explaining all the details with us, he made sure we got the best value for the home we liked! Additionally, his inspectors were truly professional detailing every conceivable problem. Regardless of whether you are buying or selling, I would highly recommend Shawn Culhane to help you in this life changing move. We could not have asked for a better Realtor to guide us through the process.Jay and Charlotte
My experience with Shaun Culhane was like flying first class, staying at a 5-star hotel and dining at a 5-star restaurant. The level of knowledge, professionalism and execution was exceptional. I will use Shawn Culhane exclusively in the future in any and all of my real estate business dealings. I will openly admit that he is not the cheapest broker in the market, but he is the best and you do get what you pay for. Shawn's team is also exceptional and Culhane Premier Properties should be the only option for anyone in the greater Austin/Central Texas area looking to buy or sell a home, ranch or property.westpack4
I sold my home and bought my new town home using Culhane - great service both times!” Chris was exceptional with customer service. Thank you for making the selling and buying so easy.kstorke
Scott Ewell at Culhane properties is the man! He worked his butt off to get my wife and me into the house we just knew was out there! Thanks Scott for all your after work and weekend hours you put into it! Scott was also great at making sure we were way ahead of the curve and knew what was coming up in the process of buying our house. I always felt like he was stepping up for us and making sure our best interest were in mind. I would not hesitate to recommend Scott Ewell at Culhane Properties or any (I also have purchased with Shawn Culhane and he is awesome as well) of their Realtors there when looking to buy a house. We appreciate your hard work. Thanks again!user80208754
Stellar service! Shawn is my realtor for life, he is an expert in his field.
I recommend him to everyone, who is seeking outstanding service. He has a great team of professionals to help you with any real estate need.Robin Martin
Chris was very professional and thorough. He showed me homes that fit my criteria instead of homes he wanted to "push", which I’ve experienced with other realtors. Everyone on the staff was knowledgeable attentive and helpful. Out of my nine home buying experiences in my lifetime so far, this was the best!Jkay1218
Sidenote, I have to say that my wife and I have bought 3 houses in the last 7 years and Chris was by far the best realtor we worked with. Finding a house here in Round Rock couldn't have been easier for us. Ironically, the house we ended up falling in love with (and buying) was one that I nixed earlier on, but Chris put it back on the list when we came down to tour the homes. Your team really know their stuff and I cannot wait to meet more people from your company.Garrett
I want to thank both Eric and Shawn for selling my home in Georgetown in 5 days for full asking price. The sale went above and beyond my expectations, and it is all because of the professionalism of Culhane Realty and its associates.
I will utilize Culhane Realty for all my future real estate dealings.
It was a wonderful experience working with Michael and the Culhane Properties team buying my new home! Thank you! He did a great job helping me find and purchase a new construction home.DFucciani
Chris DeTrinis was professional, courteous and respectful of our time and expectations. He made sure we saw the Austin area & surroundings to confirm what/where. We ended up with a new home Chris found for us as a result of him taking the time to know us. He is very gracious & kind. Anyone working with Chris is fortunate.Trammells
Susan and I want to express our most sincere thanks to you and all the amazing professionals there at Culhane Premiere Properties. This was our first experience with a full team of specialists, and I can safely say it won't be our last.John and Susan G.

Very smooth, kept informed every step!! From beginning to end!! Great Team. Exceptional service by my side!! You are our Realtors for life in Texas!! A Great Experience.ChristinaBrown89
We have bought and sold several homes and Culhane was the first company that was actually pleasant to work with. They did not worry us with repeated contacts but rather contacted us when it was critical for us to be informed. This made for a fast and simple sale. Our home sold within about a month on the market where others within a block are still unsold over 6 months later. Thank you so much Culhane team and especially Wade, our realtor.zuser20151215154020243
Fantastic! We dealt with Scott E. He was great and very helpful. We plan on using them again in the near future. Thanks!! We plan on looking for another home or possibly a lot to build on and will use Scott again!scottg803
We were extremely pleased with our Shawn Culhane team! Diana, Eric, and other Culhane staff were all friendly and professional—the whole process of selling our home, while at the same time looking for and buying a new home was finely coordinated. Eric took the lead to sell our house, and Diana organized the purchase of our new home. Their efficient support staff facilitated every process step. After our house sold in 5 days, we were able to focus our attention on the search for our new home. It didn't take long to find what we were looking for, and after our offer was accepted, things happened quickly, and before we knew it, we were settled into our new home. I would say that Shawn Culhane team met and exceeded our expectations!lvlange752
You have an awesome team and I wanted to say thanks for all your help. Eric was great, priced my house perfectly and we got full price minus a few incidentals to the buyers. Dorothy, Diana and Jennifer kept me updated every step of the way. I was so grateful for the updates. It is a stressful process. They returned my calls and emails within a few minutes, were polite, kind and professional. Even though we closed with another title company at the seller request they still helped me get through the buying process.
Allison Carr helped me to get a new home and stuck with me through the many issues that came up and my refusal to give up on the one house I wanted, LOL. She is awesome and has a great career ahead of her. In all, you have a wonderful committed group. They all deserve a raise or at least a nice lunch. I could not have asked for a nicer group of people to work with. Thank you for everything and I will highly recommend Culhane Premier Properties to anyone I think might be looking."pberger1958
My overall experience was excellent. I believe our timing to market our property was off by approximately 3 months or we would have sold quicker. As time presents itself, I will always recommend Culhane Properties.francole2
Being relocated to the Austin area for work, Shawn was very helpful in narrowing down the different neighborhoods that best fit what I was looking for. He is extremely dedicated to his work and was always there to answer any questions I had during the process. Ultimately, Shawn helped me find a wonderful home and helped work a great deal! I would highly recommend him to any friend or family moving into the area.Katie W.
Our agent, Chris, was very professional and helpful throughout our entire buying process. He seemed to drop everything when we needed him. It was a great experience from beginning to end.user9841942
From the moment we met with Eric Englberg and his quick response, we recognized the Culhane Team would be a great choice. From the stager to the final close he was available and gave us advice we seeked along the way. Feb to August, the close went smooth. We strongly recommend Culhane Premier Properties for the North Shore area and all of Austin!bsheck84
Our experience was awesome. We couldn't have a better agent than Angie. She was always on top of things and got us a great deal! We were so happy with her after she helped us with our first investment property that we used her for our second property. We plan to use her for all of our real estate needs and would highly recommend her!annawasser14
This is the 3rd house that i've sold and I've never had an experience like this before. ypur services are amazing. Your client services and attention to great detail are top notch. I've never seen a realtor company so organized like this before. Being out of town, I was crazy nervous, but your communication methods are rated #1 in my book. You kept me informed at every step of the process. I had zero stress in this process and ultimately the sale of my house.benettap
Every step of the process from the first inquiry to closing has been handled professionally, skillfully and with kindness. Very thorough, knowledgeable and willing to make it work! I love my home!sandy allison08
Excellent! Angie & Scott both stepped up to the plate to help us close on our house while not even being in the state. They were always on top of things and made sure we closed on time. Both were very nice too which doesn't hurt!lisabixler66
Eric Engberg with Culhane Premier Properties was highly recommended to us by a neighbor. Eric came to our home and patiently walked us through a difficult decision to sell our dream home. Our age and health issues were pushing us to sell this large home and to down size to a home of 1/2 the square feet. Eric allowed us time to think about this decision. Once our mind was made up, it was full speed ahead.
Our size home averaged 82 days on the market to sell. Eric navigated us through all the options and we went "live" with the listing. The Culhane marketing process, which is most effective, produced our first offer within a week. Eric helped us to work the details to the point where we rejected the offer. The Culhane office kept us encouraged as we were hanging out waiting for another offer. The results were within 20 days of the rejection we were choosing between the terms of multiple offers. Our house sold within 30 days of the listing date smashing the current averages. Eric helped us the entire way down to closing. We were sold on the Culhane process. It worked marvelously for us.landpappy
Shawn listed my property after another agent was unable to help me sell it. Shawn gave me excellent, timely advice, continuously kept me in the loop with all sales activity, and helped us to negotiate a sale on the property.
He is eminently professional, courteous, and skilled at his job.user4780354
We worked with Kristina Foster and we couldn't have been more pleased. It was a long, tedious process, but she didn't give up! She kept us apprised and up to date at all times even though it was a long distance "relationship" and a long distance closing. We would definitely use her again if we need a good, honest and hardworking realtor.pboett831
Chris was absolutely perfect, start to finish. Always available or would respond quickly, knowledgeable, with good contacts for services, including our loan. He listens and really matches wants & needs with available properties. Makes buying easy!user7816716
He was very professional and worked hard to find individuals to lease our home. When a problem come up at closing - he found a great solution to close the deal. He was great!mertonsam
Shawn helped us downsize after our son went off to college & we accepted the fact that he wasn't coming back (a good thing). Shawn got our home of 16 years sold in 2 days with multiple offers and, although we found our next house on our own (we decided to build), Shawn was instrumental in negotiating a great deal with the builder. I would use Shawn again in a heartbeat (no offense, but I hope I don't have to) and recommend him to all my friends.Kst3v3o
As a first time home buyer things can be stressful. Shawn Michelle was wonderful and helped set our mind at ease. She has gone above and beyond to help us find our new home.tinalitam

After experiencing dissatisfaction with two previous brokers, Shawn Culhane, Elizabeth Doris and their team took over and did an excellent job. They knew what they were doing, worked hard, and got it done. Very proactive and thorough in their efforts.
I highly recommend this group!mdailey63
Culhane did a great job marketing my house. The staging was very helpful and the fantastic photographs really showed my house in the best way. I would recommend Culhane Premier Properties to anyone.bonbonnee
was transferred out to the Austin area from California for work and was referred to Culhane Premier Properties for my home search. I couldn't have been happier with their service. Shawn talked with me about the different areas that he thought would work best and drove me around to several communities until we found the perfect fit. He was there to answer any questions I had throughout the entire buying process. I loved my home and when after 2 years was ready to move up, Shawn listed the property and it sold within a week above asking price! I would highly recommend Shawn and his team to all family and friends.kcoffeyw
We decided that we were going to sell our home and we contacted Culhane Premier Properties. Shawn answered the phone himself and we then set up an appointment to get a property evaluation with Eric. After meeting, we decided to use them as our realtor. We put it on the market January 6th and we are closing today , February 14th - they lived up to their advertising. We could not have asked for better service, it was smooth and hassle free. They got the asking price and were very professional. They know this business, live up to their word and are honest. They went way beyond our expectations.lwebber001
Culhane’s professionalism and team of experts made selling our home easy, pleasant and quick. The staging and photos presented it very well. Additionally, they did a great job of keeping us up to date on the progress and working through any hiccups along the way. We will definitely use them for future real estate transactions. Thanks to all those involved, especially Eric and Shawn.user4860262
I sold and bought a home using Culhane Premier Properties. Diana Leyva is a true professional, she and the Culhane group did an amazing job listing our home. They also made sure we were well informed when purchasing our new home. Thanks Diana, you made this a great experience for us?sam vprice73
For a couple of years, we had known that we wanted to purchase a new home but we weren’t really sure how to go about it since we hadn’t bought/sold a home in 15 years. Shawn helped us both sell our home and buy a new home. He was able to give us all the information we needed and we felt very confident with the whole process. We bought our forever home and it was quite wonderful! His office staff was very accommodating and reassuring and really just went above and beyond. The whole experience was fantastic!Coringenee
We just purchased our first home from Scott, and let me tell you... Scott Ewell with Culhane Properties is a class act? Patient, honest, and well informed about the area. I know that we were not Culhane Properties only client at the time we were looking to buy our house, but we felt like Scott's only clients. My Wife and I had been looking for a house for over a year. We fired more than one real estate agent due to lack of attention, and/or difficult interactions.
I lost a leg in a motorcycle accident, and when looking for properties he made sure to check for excessive steps, narrow doorways and hallways, and high inclines on driveways and sidewalks. He even lifted my 70lbs wheelchair into the back of his own truck, unloaded it at each property, and loaded it back up again. He did so for weeks without complaint or mention of inconvenience. In fact, he seemed to take joy in providing assistance. We looked at several homes, at my insisting, that were simply a bad fit. Homes with tight corners and narrow hallways, small kitchens and hard to get through front, rear, and bedroom doors. Scott humored me, and without complaint took us to the next house. Sometimes we spent 5 minutes in a house before proceeding to the next, sometimes we didn't even get out of the car. Scott never showed any signs of even the slightest irritation at what other agents flat out stated was a waste of time.
We felt like we were looking for houses with a close friend rather than a real estate agent.
My Wife and I trust Scott emphatically, and recommend him exclusively to both friends and family.1981jeepwagoneer
Extremely knowledgeable and highly professional. Priced our home to sell in our desired timeframe while maximizing our sales price. I would use him again and recommend to others.tim jennett

Did what he said. Did not have opportunity to do much though since full price contract was in hand in 3 days. Provided feedback in negotiations concerning problem areas of older house. Communicated long distance in final negotiations via doc-u-sign.danraley43
Shawn sold our house in 60 days. He and his team are responsive, professional, and great work with. I will go to him first the next time I need to sell or buy a house.scfitzer
Scott came to twenty-six(!) home showings because we were rather picky in looking for very good deals middle-to-end of the recession. We even had to put our search on hold for over 6 months during a pregnancy yet he was always patient, always arrived before we did, and always with comp list in hand. He provided great area advice to make us aware of pros and cons to a specific area we didn't realize and worked tirelessly to counteroffer once we find the home we still really like even nearly two years later!Matt B.
They really went above and beyond from start to finish. Shawn marketed the property alongside of my own personal marketing and it was incredibly professional, you would have thought they were selling a multimillion dollar property. He had a photographer come by and take professional photographs as well as a stager to assist with the staging. He had a very professional sign out in the yard and he created a booklet with the pictures. It was just absolutely amazing!Dan F.
I was very happy with Shawn and the whole team at Culhane. They were all easily accessible and quick with answers. The books they made for our home were beautiful...I kept one as a keepsake.zuser20140622175302162
Shawn Michelle Evans and her group are very knowledgeable and professional. She helped me locate and purchase just the right property for my current project as an investor and builder I Will definitely use them again.kelly5964
My husband and I have bought homes in NH, UT, GA and TX (work related) and by far this is the very best company we've come across in selling our home. Everyone from our agent Eric Engberg to the entire team (Cassie, Krystal) was knowable, and quick to respond to any question we had during the process. (Wish we had met this team for the buying part) We can't say enough good things and would encourage anyone buying or selling property to call Culhane Properties!user14967976
We moved from Houston and were under pressure to find a home. He was efficient in that he knew exactly what we were looking for. Because our agent was responsive to our desire to see the house we were most interested "on a whim", we are very grateful. He even took time away from his family plans. We now live in our Dream Home? Thank you Culhane!tinawissner
It has been super easy working with your team. Chris was great and we will look to use him again in the future. He even helped us find a great lender as well!cryzjb2002
I met Culhane associate Carolyn Hays by chance at a neighborhood open house. Her friendliness and interest in our time-pressured complex housing situation that would not lead to obvious business for her was warm and sincere. She sent me great sale listings to consider, but after deciding we could not buy, we went directly to listing realtors to look at every one of the (very) few rentals in central Austin that met our size/price parameters, and a few weeks later, just as we were about to make a difficult compromise decision on a rental home we really didn't like that much, she by chance followed up just one more time, and asked for a day or two to "think outside the box" for us. In two days, by calling her contacts, she lined up four homes not currently on the rental market for us to look at, and one of them turned out to be a beautiful house that more than meets our needs. She negotiated beautifully for us and we are very happy in our new home. Thank you Carolyn!John M
Worked with Chris DeTrinis on the purchase of our home and the partnership was great! Chris was responsive, patient and very knowledgeable about all the areas we were interested in (and it was many). He guided us through the negotiation process and helped us establish baseline offers for the properties we were interested in.
I would like to give you and your entire team a heartfelt THANK YOU!! Everyone in your office from my initial contact with Scott to the listing agent, Eric Engberg, to Diana, was extremely professional and very polite. It was a real pleasure dealing with your company for the sale of my home. The staging appointment was fantastic and provided great advice to get us started. The photographer was outstanding and provided high quality photos of my home. The marketing is absolutely second to none!! We were very fortunate to have a full price offer the very first weekend on the market and closed last week. If I know anybody who is looking for a home to purchase or sell, you can rest assured that I will be recommending your company. Again, Thank you, and if I have any other real estate needs I will definitely be in touch. Please share this email with your team, I want them all to know how pleased I am with each of them.Scott H.
Wonderful! Great website and we appreciated all of the help post the buying of our home - recommendations for contractors, etc. You guys made it super easy...right through closing with the electronic signing of docs, etc.vhoward4
After my house was on the market for 3 months with no offers, I switched to Culhane Premier Properties. 2 weeks later, we received an offer for full asking price. Eric Engberg was our agent and Kristina Foster was our contract/closing manager. These guys know what they are doing and have it down to a science. Their marketing is top notch. They keep you up to date with EVERYTHING including market conditions in your neighborhood, activity and feedback from each viewing of your property, and everything else related to selling your house. They also know how to negotiate for the given situation. We had a buyer going through a VA loan, which changed the conditions slightly compared to a conventional loan. By knowing how VA loans worked, they were able to leverage certain conditions during the negotiation process. I am a believer in their system, process, and teamwork at Culhane Premier Properties. Will definitely use them again in the future.sonnythanhtruong
Our overall experience was wonderful! Buying a first home can be a bit scary, but with Culhane the process went smooth, and exciting! The housing market is crazy right now, and we were worried we wouldn't find the right house in time (before our baby came). Our realtor Angie with Culhane Premier Properties assured us she would help us find our perfect house, and she sure did! Angie and this company are professional, yet fun to work with and I highly recommend them.KrisJeffrey725
Michael has gone above and beyond any expectations we could have had. He and Shawn will get all of our referrals and future repeat business. Michael made the process as easy as could be, was very attentive to requirements in looking for a home, very knowledgeable when we had questions.MicheleD
