"I feel so fortunate to have met Mari. Joining forces with her in my home search process was an experience I'll truly never forget. I have the utmost respect for Mari's drive and hustle to be the first, the smartest, and the best in Austin's chaotic real estate market. Working with her is like wearing a life vest while staying afloat in choppy waters- I honestly could not have made it through this journey in one piece without her strategic guidance, expert advice, and supportive, late-night phone calls. She is willing to work around your schedule too, no matter how hectic it might be, which is wonderful as a working mom and super helpful when it came to touring homes before they hit the market. In all certainty that comes with putting an offer on a house in Austin, I always knew one thing for certain, I had the best realtor in town on my side."
Mari Jackson was responsible for making my most recent real estate transaction the quickest and easiest one I've ever had. AND SHE WASN'T EVEN MY REALTOR! I am a home builder and have been involved in over 400 transactions so when I say Mari's was the best transaction, she hands down beat out a lot of great realtors. Let me explain. I am a homebuilder in the Houston area and my brother passed away having a home in Austin. Another brother and I were responsible for liquidating the property. Because we didn't understand the Austin market, we interviewed 4 local realtors. Before we could award the listing, Mari ( who was not one of our 4) brought us a buyer that our brother's house was perfect for and a contract that was exactly in line with what the other 4 agents recommended. She didn't sit back and wait for something to fall in her lap, she identified her buyer's needs and found exactly what was required to fill those needs before it was even on the market. We were so impressed, we allowed her to handle the entire transaction. She rewarded us with a hassle-free transaction and a closing in a matter of a few weeks. She was incredibly thorough and a joy to work with. If I were in the market to buy or sell a home in the Austin area, Mari Jackson would be the realtor I would call.

We were looking for a second home to be near our grandkids and where extended family and friends could come together. Right from the beginning, Mari was personal, available, and responsive. She was able to give expert advice and in-depth information on Lost Creek homes and the neighborhood which included price, improvements, and contractors. Her knowledge provided quick and valuable information which made what could have been a painful and time-consuming process easy and efficient. Mari found us a home that was not on the market, and the recommendations on the bid process were spot-on, matching later appraisals. Months after closing, Mari is still responsive, caring and helpful, even introducing us to another client who had gone through a similar remodel. Both then and now, she goes above and beyond. Mari is not just a realtor but a friend and neighbor. We are grateful and highly recommend Mari to anyone needing a real estate professional in Austin.

After a year of searching with another agent, I decided to switch to Mari and found our house shortly after. I wish I had sought her out sooner. She used her resources and connections to find us many off-market homes to view before anyone else could, giving us a competitive edge. She's caring, personable, detail-oriented, and very knowledgeable. She always made herself available to us and was one step ahead of everything throughout the whole process. We never had to wonder what's next and felt like we were a team. What impressed me most about Mari is how she will go the extra mile for her clients.

Mari is the best. She is kind, respectful, patient and good-humored. Mari made it possible for our family to 1. Sell a house for the price we wanted, within a few days it hit the market. She was pivotal in helping us get it ready to look great and get the maximum offer possible. Mari helped make a potentially stressful event, seamless. 2. She found us a house to rent. Also in the location we wanted, within the time frame required, and at the price point we asked for. 3. She helped our family find the perfect house in a location that is amazing before it hit the market. She was a master negotiator and even helped guide us through the whole process of financing it. Mari helped to make sure that the house was move-in ready for us. Again, she made this stressful transition seamless and enjoyable. I would definitely use Mari again and would give her my wholehearted recommendation.

Mari truly cares about the experience of her homeowners. We have installed and repaired many roofs for Mari over the years. If you are looking for someone who will look out for your best interest throughout the home buying process, call Mari, you will be happy with your new home.
Jeanne and Jay – Austin, TX
As first time home buyers, my fiancé and I were really stressed about finding the perfect home in Austin's crazy real estate market. Mari was a dream to work with. She helped us buy the first home we put an offer on and made the process as easy as possible! Mari had great suggestions for lenders, inspectors, and everything else we could possibly need. Even though we've closed on our house, she has kept in touch, helping us make small changes to our home, and giving us ideas as we navigate this new stage in our lives. I can't imagine having worked with any other person, and if we ever decide to sell our house, we would go straight back to Mari!
Jennifer and Duane
We didn't really start off with a definite plan to move, yet here we are in our beautiful new home. What started off as a "what if" became a reality thanks to the extreme dedication and hard work of Mari. Every time we asked, she was there ready and able to help. From appraising our home and marketing that created multiple offers within less than a week, to digging in deep when the purchase of our new home became more complicated than expected, she was there. Buying and selling a home is an emotional and personal experience with highs and lows and everything in between and requires a realtor that instills confidence, professionalism, and confidentiality in a close-knit community. In addition to always making us feel like we were her top priority, Mari understands people and relationships stays calm and collected and is willing to go above and beyond to see you through it all. We have a deep appreciation for her and know she is the right realtor for any job.

Simply Fantastic! Mari did an absolutely superb job in assisting our family with finding a new house in Austin. As a military family, we had to conduct the majority of the transaction from thousands of miles away, but Mari kept us so informed through the entire process that we felt as if we were next door. From the initial search, assistance with the inspections, work required, and negotiations, Mari was an absolute advocate for our family and helped us ensure we found the perfect home. Motivated, highly proactive, and detail oriented, she is all we could ask for in a realtor. She is the full-package and best in the business; you want her on your side when buying or selling home.

If you are looking to make a move in the ever-competitive and burgeoning Austin real estate market, then you need to have an agent that not only knows the market inside and out but who will also go that extra mile to find you the perfect place-which may not even be listed! Mari is JUST that type of realtor. Supremely personable, an expert negotiator, and extraordinarily insightful, you definitely want Mari's services in finding the perfect new home. Mari found us our place after months of searching, and, at the end of the day, she was able to find us an off-market home that was completely re-done which suited our family's needs perfectly! We cannot say enough great things about Mari.
Mari is amazing!! I cannot recommend her enough. She found us the perfect house and sold our house quickly and the entire process was better than I could have ever imagined. She is passionate, thorough, extremely knowledgeable, and does whatever it takes to get the job done. I would work with her again in a heartbeat!

Mari isn't an ordinary realtor. Because of the person she is, she will go the extra mile for her clients. In my case, she found the ideal home for me and my two boys, negotiated a deal strategically, and got me the house I wanted in an extremely competitive market. Prior to finding the particular house, she zeroed in on neighborhoods that would be a good fit and was vigilant about sending me listings and following up with me. I cannot say enough good things about her professionally and personally. I highly recommend her to anyone looking to sell or buy a house.
Mari is very professional, hard-working and I can tell she really cares about every single client she works with. She is a great negotiator and always acts in the best interest of her clients. I highly recommend Mari if you are buying or selling your home!
I would like to commend you Mari for your professionalism and your open communications. You are one of the few realtors I have worked with in my 35 years of experience, with both excellent communication and people skills. It is a pleasure working with you!
We first met Mari as a fellow neighbor in Lost Creek. We were looking for a new home with more space in the neighborhood. Mari was representing a seller on another home on which we submitted an offer. I was so impressed with her professionalism and knowledge of the home so we asked her to list our house for sale. Mari did an excellent job reaching out to the market via social networking; she personally conducted multiple open houses; and sold our house in four days. We recommend Mari because she enjoys what she does and truly provides a service experience. A bonus, we became friends with Mari through the process.
Buying and selling require an amazing amount of coordination, timing, tenacity resources and luck. Mari embraces all of the qualities in the perfect combo. She has a positive, enthusiastic style that is infectious. Mari is impressively detail-oriented, proactive and high energy, she also has an extensive network of trusted contacts for whatever your needs might be for a smooth transaction.
Mari is that rare combination of a go-getter, problem solver, and good friend. She will push you in the ways you need to remain competitive and maximize your opportunities. But, perhaps most importantly she builds upon those base attributes with a clear motivation to watch out for what's in the best interest of her clients.
