  • My experience with Jessica was amazing. She walked me through every step of the way. As a first time home buyer I obviously had lots of questions, I can count about 150 emails between her and I and she comforted me at every step of the process. My purchase was through USDA and was a little rocky because of the government shutdown that occurred, but even then I felt confident in her abilities and even though we had no control over that situation, she did provide me peace of mind. I will always thank Jessica for all she did for me and my family, I could not have made it through this process as sanely as I did without her by my side. We were against a tough seller, and she stood her ground, fighting for me (as ALL good realtors should!) I’d highly recommend her to anyone considering purchasing a home, or even selling their home. She’s knowledgeable, tenacious, and overall a very sweet person. Very pleasant working with her!

  • tara

    Tara made our home-buying experience a positive one! From the very first time we met Tara we knew we were in good hands. She took the time to get to know us and our needs and walked us through every step of the home buying process. We were new to Austin so it seemed very overwhelming, but Tara helped us tweak our search and make it easy for us. We actually didn't get the first house we thought we wanted and were very discouraged, but Tara remained positive and helped us continue our search. When we found our home, Tara came up with the perfect offer for us and it was accepted right away. We couldn't be happier with the home we are in and that we had someone so knowledgeable and committed to her job. She truly loves being a realtor and has so many resources at her finger tips. She is patient, easy to work with, fun, and knows the Austin market well. I would highly Tara to anyone looking to buy or sell in the Austin area. You won't regret it!

  • I had the honor of working with Dan Chrisman with two rental sales. He advised me on what was needed to get the house ready for sale. I felt I was his only client as much as he communicated with me. His knowledge, thoroughness and negotiation skills sold each house in days and for more than asking price! His strong Christian faith and character ensured he was a professional you can trust.

    - Linda Mathurin
  • I’ve had a great experience working with Jessica Rios from Bella Casa Realty and was very lucky to have her as my agent. As a first time home buyer I had a lot of questions about the whole process and I was little intimidated by the competitive market and multiple offers. Jessica was very patient in answering all of my questions and concerns. She made me feel really comfortable and no question was a stupid question. She spent time in understanding my needs and addressing my concerns. Every time we would go see a house, she spent enough time talking about what I liked and didn't like and if I should consider the house. Even though she is very busy I never felt hurried and she always had open time for me.

    - Anna
  • As we transitioned to our dream home, Dan provided excellent research around property values and worked to smooth our buying process, negotiating on our behalf when paperwork did not flow as seamlessly as we hoped it would. Dan’s tireless work in pursuing documentation, loan officials, and generally working to keep everything on track helped us get to the closing table on time.

    - The Wood Family
  • I have had the pleasure of working with Jessica for 2 years now. She has been a big help in finding a tenant for my condo when I had to move and also doing the renewal lease for another year with my tenant. Being all the way in Florida, I wanted a Realtor who I can trust, and who knows how to take care of business. Jessica is all this and more. I couldn't have picked a better person and would recommend her and Bella Casa Realty to anyone. If I ever need to buy more properties in Austin, I would definitely use her.

    - Alexandria Anderson
  • Thinking of buying a home really brought much stress for me as many of our friends explained how many bad experiences they had. I guess that is because they didn't have the right realtor or in our case Dan. Dan was a true professional when it came time for us to begin our journey. He was honest, very knowledgable and seemed to really have our best interests at heart. Dan found us a great home and made the experience of buying our first house very pleasant. I would definitely recommend him to anyone looking for a great home buying experience.

    - The Garcia Family
  • Jessica is my Realtor and my best friend! We’ve been friends for 20 years, so I can definitely vouch for her being GREAT at what she does. She has helped us move twice in the past couple of years. The first time she found us a great apartment and took care of all the leg work for us. This second time my husband saw a house that we loved, and she pretty much did the rest!! She is excellent at helping with every last detail. I was scared we wouldn’t get approved because of our credit, but she helped me get over the fears and go for it! She suggested writing a letter of interest to the owner, and even helped me with an outline of the way one should look. With her help, we were in our new home in no time! The market is definitely competitive in the greater Austin area so she made sure we had all our ducks in a row. She treats everybody like a friend and I can confidently recommend her to anybody. She has also helped our family members to move in smoothly from out of town. She really is a natural at what she does. And the fact that she enjoys it really makes the whole experience pleasant.

    - Melissa and Carl
  • Jessica Rios was truly great to work with. We both felt at ease through our home buying process from start to finish. We love our home and couldn't be more happy!

    - Earl and Cassandra
  • I have nothing but praise regarding my entire house purchase experience with Dan Chrisman. He was helpful, thorough, knowledgeable and efficient in all aspects of the Austin real estate market and the home purchase process. After living overseas for 20 years, I arrived in town knowing nothing about how to navigate through the maze of buying a house in the USA. Dan was patient throughout the entire process, showing me many houses over many months until we were both certain I had the right house. He verified that all the paperwork was completed on time and made sure to follow up so that all deadlines were met. I have nothing but praise for his professionalism, knowledge and ability. When problems came up (as they always do), Dan helped to resolve them as quickly as possible. I would not hesitate to recommend Dan to anyone purchasing a house in the Austin area.

  • rina

    Rina Peiffer is everything you could possibly want in an agent representing you. She is knowledgeable, responsive, and got me every penny I wanted on my nearly 500,000 dollar home. Additionally, she was also respectful and more than helpful while I sold my home and settled my divorce. I can honestly say that my experience was a success because she was so good at her job. She took on the challenge of selling my home and made what could have been a very stressful situation enjoyable and pain free. Rina Peiffer is a great agent who treats the people she does business with respect. For all these reasons you should let her buy or sell your next home.

    - Carrie Coulter
  • Dan is an incredible realtor. With us being in the military we made contact with Dan and could instantly feel his energy and excitement to work with us. He listened to our requirements and got to know us in order to not only meet but go way beyond our expectations. We only had a few days to find a home and upon arriving in Texas, Dan had a layed out plan that included many homes we did not even know existed. By listening to us and getting to know us he found the perfect home for us that we have never seen. It is because of his energy and willingness to go beyond our expectations we would recommend Dan to anyone as a realtor.

    - Kevin
  • Jessica Rios acted as my Realtor when my husband and I were looking for a rental property. Armed with two large dogs, a budget, and some personal preferences, Ms. Rios went above and beyond in helping us find a place to call home. Before I met with Jessica, I was in contact with a realtor at another Austin company. This person had simply put me on an MLS email that continued to generate properties that would never work for us. I gave up on this individual and starting calling properties directly when I was referred to Jessica Rios. She was kind, patient, and eager to help. As you might know, properties in Austin and the surrounding areas are being snatched up left and right. Ms. Rios would email me sometimes at 11p at night with listings so I would have first pick of them. This is in fact how we found our current residence. Once we found a perfect place, her service did not stop there. Ms. Rios helped us through the lease process, advocating on my behalf to get the best deal. Even after the papers were signed and the keys were in my hand, Ms. Rios followed up with me a month later to make sure that everything was perfect. Jessica Rios is an outstanding realtor. I commend her tenacity in finding us the perfect place. In a year, my husband and I will be ready to buy our first home, and if we will be living in the Austin area, there is no one I would rather have as my Realtor than Jessica Rios.

  • tara

    I cannot say enough good things about Bella Casa Realty. I feel sorry for those who have to deal with less experienced brokers. Being represented by Bella Casa Realty gave us a definite advantage!

  • renee

    Bella Casa Realty was the most responsive brokerage I have ever dealt with. Phone calls were returned quickly and I never had to wait long for an answer. I never felt as if I was imposing when I had an urgent need or question. Thanks Bella Casa Realty!

  • rina

    After having a moving history, we found Rina in the suburbs of Austin. By far, she has been our top notch realtor. From the start she showed enthusiasm and honesty. She is truly a hardworking realtor with so much experience in the real estate market. Rina and her company immediately had our house listed with a beautiful virtual tour to market it. She went above and beyond to get it where it needed to be. In our economy today, she listed it and was busy keeping it out in the market showing. Best of all, she had a contract on our home in Georgetown , Texas within 16 days. It was a wonderful and smooth experience for our family. Thank you so much Rina Peiffer and Bella Casa Realty! I would recommend you to everyone!

  • When I think of Jessica Rios, I think of someone positive with a smile on her face, happy to help right away. I think we all need positive messages, life-affirming reminders that we are okay. Clearly, Jessica doesn’t expect anything in return from her Real Estate services but a thankyou, which is the least I can do. I believe Jessica does her job so well because she’s a natural. You don’t need to be an executive, a powerful influencer or a captain of industry to be the best. Rather, you must care. And I believe she cares. She helped us by showing kindness, by caring that we were well informed and happy with our new home. Jessica Rios is great comfort to have on your side. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

    - The Pienaar Family
  • Renee did a great job! She sold our house in 3 days. We could not have done it without her help. Renee had great ideas on how to stage our home and awesome pictures on the web. She was there when we need a place to live and picked out a great apartment with a great location while our new home was being built. She went above and beyond and was there when ever any issues came up during the building process. She was honest, professional & reliable. All the characteristics of a great Realtor.
