It would be difficult to overstate how great a job Cristi did in selling our house.

Professional, personable and offering constructive straight talk, Cristi’s expertise allowed us to avoid missteps and strategically maximize our selling potential. The end result? We sold our house within two days of listing it, at a price that was more than what we asked for. If you are wondering which of a plethora of real estate agents should be the one to represent you, let me give you some helpful advice: This. Is. The. One.

She is simply excellent at what she does, was extremely professional and always quick to respond to my inquiries. Can't recommend this amazing lady enough, she is that good!

Roger Sprague

Building a home while living one hundred miles away was a daunting thought.

Luckily, our daughter recommended Cristi McGowan to us. She was building her dream home, and she told us that her experience with Cristi was exceptional. The process took about a year to complete due to Covid, but we finally closed! Cristi was with us all of the way. We called her often and she always made time for us. She was patient and professional, and easy to work with. We wish she could sell our house is Austin.

!! Absolutely the best realtor! Every step of the way she MADE IT HAPPEN for us. Above our expectations and we are so grateful for her services and thoughtfulness as well.

Gina Davis

Kara Goble was my realtor and she is a real estate professional extraordinaire!

Not only were her communication skills exceptional, but her talent at staging the home were such that I wished I'd had her decorate when I first moved in. Kara was determined in her drive to get my house sold as was evident by her masterful marketing, follow up with other agents, and her ability to listen. Kara went above and beyond in that she was willing to meet repairmen when I had a conflict, assisted me in making repairs after the inspection, and compassionately guided me through what I expected to be a stressful process, but ultimately was not because of Kara. 5 stars!

Ryan Cohenour

A true professional.

This is my second home sale handled by Kara and I have nothing but high praise for her expertise. The virtual tour was excellent; her communication with me was always quick and honest; she kept me informed throughout the whole process; and even solved a plumbing problem after we had closed. Obviously, if I ever need to buy or sell a home again in the Waco area, there is only one professional I will call - Kara.

Charles Frey

Being new to the area we chose Willow to help us find our first home.

The one thing we loved most about her was that she felt more like a friend rather than just a realtor trying to sell us a house. She was ALWAYS kind, helpful, informative, and quick to reply to any questions we had. And she always had what was best in our interest! With being first time home buyers Willow made it a breeze, from searching for the perfect home to closing. I would highly recommend her to anyone! THANK YOU again Willow!! You are truly great at what you do!!!

She is not only knowledgeable, but very easy to work with.

In settling my mom’s estate, choosing Christi was one of the best moves we made.

She laid out the process clearly for us and even gave us great sources for removing furniture and trash.

What a great experience we had working with Julia and the NextHome team!

We are moving half way across the country so our relationship started through text and emails, with plans of where or what we wanted changing about 20 times. Julia was there every time to listen and then went to work looking for properties that fit our criteria. Once we made it to Texas, she was there for every twist and turn, digging for answers to every question or concern and once we found what we wanted, working diligently to get the properties closed. She was even able to get major repairs done on one of the properties that was being sold as is! And since we were out of state for the inspections, repairs and closing, she scheduled and attended all of the needed appointments and made sure everything was running smoothly. She is honest and trustworthy! Julia will definitely be our go to realtor for all future buying and selling needs!

Kristen Muir

Kara helped my Dad and I find the perfect home for my time at Baylor.

We are from out of state and could not visit the home, but Kara made sure that we felt comfortable and educated on the various properties she presented. Between handling the inspections and sending us full walk through videos, she went above and beyond. Not only was she extremely helpful in the buying process, after the purchase, she send out a handy man to replace the dead lightbulbs and install new carbon dioxide detector. Buying through Kara was a wonderful experience and we appreciated her tremendously.

Highly recommend Willow!

T J Geiger

As a first time home buyer I would definitely recommend Cristi.

Going into the home buying process I was kinda nervous and wasnt sure what to expect but she made the whole process pretty simple.

Justin Hostetler (Automotive technician)

I would not trust real estate with anyone in Central Texas except Cristi McGowan.

She has represented me in multiple real estate transactions over the years and in the end, while I felt like things were bumpy, she always managed to smooth them out. This last sale, the ceiling began leaking literally less than 24 hours before the walk through! I panicked of course and Cristi remained calm and got everyone on it and it was fixed by 9:00 am the next day. The poise, patience, and passion she has for her clients says it all. Thanks friend!

Kristen Lawley

If you are in the market for a realtor, I recommend Meredith without hesitation.

She strives for excellence in all that she does. I've never worked with or heard about a realtor who provides all the services that Meredith willingly and cheerfully provided to us. There are 2 things that are key in a realtor-client relationship: communication and marketing. Meredith kept us informed at every turn, therefore keeping us on track. Her marketing strategies are a perfect fit for your home, not just the same old standard routine regardless of the need. Meredith basically sold our home in 1 day, even though the stats may show 3 as that is how long the paper process took in obtaining a signed contract. What sold the buyer on the home? The professional video that Meredith arranged of the house and the property. Meredith partners with only the very best extended team members as her expectations of them are the same she has for herself.... Excellence.

Keith Uptmor

My wife and I had a great experience with Julia.

We never felt pressured to buy a house we weren’t sure about, and she always made sure we saw every angle of the home, even the bad ones. We were much more comfortable with going with Julia because of her honesty and patience she showed throughout our time with her from beginning to even after the closing of the home. We would definitely go with her again.

Justin Kettell

Willow is such an amazing realtor!

She is kind, knowledgeable, and hard working. She is also very resourceful and works with a wonderful team at NextHome Our Town who all work together to ensure all questions are answered and clients are well taken care of.

My husband and I could not have asked for a better realtor to help us buy our first home. I would 100% recommend Willow to everyone!

Julia Swank was incredibly helpful in finding investment properties for my husband and I.

She is responsive and goes out of her way to help her clients. She listened to us and helped us to find properties we needed to make our investment. She goes out of her way to help a client and goes over a beyond. We love working with Julia and look forward to our next purchase with her.

Cristi is unbelievable.

Cristi is the kind of realtor everyone who is selling their home deserves.

She is fair and unbiased. She priced our home above the market value and got more for it then what we were asking. Her communication skills are excellent. Between Cristi and her assistant Beth we were never left to wonder where we were in the selling process. Cristi gave us good advice along the way and we were extremely pleased with the results. We highly recommend Cristi and the Waco Home Team to anyone buying or selling a home.

John Peitsmeyer

Kara did an absolutely incredible job!

!! We moved here from Minnesota so we had to do everything remotely, not to mention we were first time home buyers, and she made everything go so smoothly! The market was crazy so whenever we saw a house come on the market and wanted to virtually tour it, she would be over at the house right away ready to show us. She also stepped in when the previous owners were skeptical about us not being able to see the house in person. She has been so willing to help in every situation, I wish I could give her 10 stars!

Kelsey Erickson

Cristi did an amazing job in getting us our Waco dream home!

We are in California and buying in Waco Tx and Cristi made sure that everything was perfect with the house and the sale. We really couldn’t have done this sale without all of her help. Cristi is very knowledgeable and professional and made sure that we were kept informed on everything going on with he home and escrow. Even after the escrow closed Cristi continued to help us with finding contractors and getting things done. We highly recommend Cristi for all of your Realestate needs.

Julie Muehl

Willow was an amazing realtor to work with!

We were first time home buyers with not a ton of experience and she made us feel completely at ease during the entire process. She was great with follow up and answering all the questions we had. I would highly recommend using her if you are looking to buy or sell a home!

Katie Andrie

Cristi is amazing and works really hard to find you the perfect home at a great price.

She used to work for Stylecraft builders so she has an excellent eye for structural issues in homes and how to also improve them cosmetically. She is super knowledgeable and will work around your schedule. I couldn’t recommend her enough.

Tyler Green

Willow was amazing!

Thanks again for all of your hard work, Willow!

Dalton and Kayla Glass

Christi did a great job selling our house.

She even picked up moving boxes for me and delivered them. She was willing to pitch in and help, no matter what it was. She is tough and professional in handling the sale. Our sale kind of drug out for a while, no fault to Christi, more the fault of all the refinancing and volume of homes being sold. She was understanding with our frustrations and worries and was right there to help.

Deborah Burdwood

This is my second home sale handled by Kara and I have nothing but high praise for her expertise.

We sold our house and Christi was always there to answer any questions we had.

She even picked up moving boxes for me and brought them to our house. She is very friendly and caring and doesn't mind pitching right along with you. So glad we choose to use her to sell our house.

Deborah Burdwood

Meredith is the absolute BEST realtor we've worked with while living in Oklahoma.

Our realtor to purchase our house was awful. Our next realtor to sell the house was even worst!!! We originally listed our home in January and 5 months later we fired her because of lack of showings and the broker refusing to have an open house. Luckily Meredith reached out to us and offered to help and give advice on what to do next. In 3 weeks we had an offer on our house above list price after Meredith negotiated our counter. We are currently in escrow and what's ironic is Meredith was able to sell our home through 3 open houses, which is something our previous realtor refused to do. We are beyond THANKFUL for Meredith and couldn't be more happy with her professionalism, competency, and determination to have our house sold before moving from Oklahoma to California. My husband and I are confident you will be in good hands with Meredith!

Jessica Bradshaw

Willow was amazing!

Thanks again for all of your hard work, Willow!

We had the best experience with every staff member we came in contact with.

They were always very helpful. Kara Neely-Goble was our agent she really went above and beyond for us. We were from out of town, she really listened to what we needed and found the perfect home for us. It was in great location and the price range we were looking for. Kara has great knowledge of the Waco area and we feel blessed to have her as our realtor.

Sylvia Foster

"Cristi is the best!

Recommend her 100%! We used her expertise over the last year for both buying a new build and selling our previous house. The home sold for well over asking after only 3 viewings during a pandemic! Skills! She did a fantastic job of advertising, made sure to get eye-catching professional photos to attract buyers and gave us expert staging advice. It was our first time selling, and she made it a breeze. If you’re on the fence about using a realtor for a new build, I’d strongly advise it. She caught so many “fine print” items that saved us big headaches and put pressure on builders for us when necessary. She recommended an inspector who caught items we wouldn’t have noticed otherwise (like thousands of dollars of roof damage on the hew build)! Cristi also does her homework about current and future economic issues and can give smart advice on good times to buy/sell. Now my parents are buying in Waco and Cristi is helping them as well."

Kristen Muir

Cristi did a great job selling our house and helping us with the purchase of a new house in Waco.

She got us more than we expected on our old home and helped us negotiate the price on our new purchase. It was an easy and smooth experience. I would fully recommend Waco Home Team.

Ryan Cohenour

We have used Kara when we bought and sold our last house and she has been wonderful.

Very knowledgeable, great sales advice, and goes out of her way to do extra things most realtors don't bother with. On top of that, she has a wonderful personality and is just fun to spend time with.

Jeff Manske (Attorney)

We called Cristi early on in our house hunt as she was highly recommended by dear friends of ours.

Cristi did not disappoint. She quickly prepared a list of homes and wanted to make sure that she was on the right track with the homes she provided. If we were interested, she was ready to book a showing and worked with our schedules. From preparing the offer to the point an offer was accepted, she was ready to "go to bat" for us. She was ready for action at a moments notice and showed great pride in her job. She was easy to work with, cared about finding our family a home that was right for us, and she made it a great experience overall (especially with the changes taking place during the pandemic). It's easy to see why she was so highly recommended!

THE BEST REALTOR!

!!! Cristi is so client oriented and goes above and beyond to make sure you are happy and have the home of your dreams! I would've been absolutely lost and IN TEARS if I didn't have her!! The team really walks you through every step and makes sure you understand what's happening. She also helped us sell our home for top dollar!! She's just absolutely awesome! I highly, highly, HIGHLY recommend you use Cristi and the Waco Home Team!!! You won't regret it!

Kara did an absolutely incredible job!

!! We moved here from Minnesota so we had to do everything remotely, not to mention we were first time home buyers, and she made everything go so smoothly! The market was crazy so whenever we saw a house come on the market and wanted to virtually tour it, she would be over at the house right away ready to show us. She also stepped in when the previous owners were skeptical about us not being able to see the house in person. She has been so willing to help in every situation, I wish I could give her 10 stars!

We had the best experience with every staff member we came in contact with.

They were always very helpful. Kara Neely-Goble was our agent she really went above and beyond for us. We were from out of town, she really listened to what we needed and found the perfect home for us. It was in great location and the price range we were looking for. Kara has great knowledge of the Waco area and we feel blessed to have her as our realtor.

Meredith was a pleasure to work with.

She went the extra mile in helping us sell our house. She conducted weekly open houses and gave us several recommendations on easy repairs/improvements that would help us sell our house fast. She knows the market well and has great negotiation skills. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell a house!

Joby Kurian

Fantastic job.

Did not hold back on saying what she really felt about a house and what it was truly worth. Will absolutely be using her again.

Reggie

Awesome experience!

We'll definitely use again in the future and recommend to everyone! Cristi is awesome!

It would be difficult to overstate how great a job Cristi did in selling our house.

Professional, personable and offering constructive straight talk, Cristi’s expertise allowed us to avoid missteps and strategically maximize our selling potential. The end result? We sold our house with two days of listing it, at a price that was more than what we asked for. If you are wondering which of a plethora of real estate agents should be the one to represent you, let me give you some helpful advice: This. Is. The. One.

We loved our agent Julia Swank.

Through our home buying process we went toured many and even put offers on several and Julia stuck by our side until we found the perfect one. Throughout the whole experience she was patient, very knowledgeable and always was able to answer any questions we had.
