"We knew selecting the right Realtor® was incredibly important when buying and selling our home, but I didn’t initially grasp just how good of a decision we had made when we hired Art. He is a true professional, and I could write a book about this experience and how he guided us through the process. Something rarely mentioned and difficult to articulate is the importance of the team your Realtor brings to the table, and Art has put together the best in the business. The level of personal dedication and support we received from every member of the team was humbling and far exceeded any of our expectations. We love our home and would not be here without you guys. So thank you, Art, thank you, Jessi, thank you, Anastasia, thank you Neela, thank you, Christina, thank you Zac, thank you, Debbie, thank you Cindy, and thank you anyone else who helped us buy our home!"
"From the beginning, Art was patient with us as we looked at countless homes. The course of 4 months, he was by our side each step of the way. He never pressured us into buying and offered excellent insight into the neighborhood and home. When we found the house of our dreams, Art moved quickly and helped us make a compelling offer. In fact, the seller's agent said she chose us because of how great Art was at communicating. That is what you need in this competitive Austin market. Overall, we had an extremely fun and pleasant home buying experience. Art is so personable and had our backs every step of the way. We will not only recommend him to our friends but also use him again for our next home."

"I'd like to start off by saying that Art by far exceeded our expectations. He's top notch and a class act. He was able to completely understand what we were looking for, took the time to understand what we were after, and went to locations to make many videos, from many locations, so that we could see them from here in California. Art has been on top of everything going on during the escrow/closing period. He answered all our questions and curiosities during the process.We truly appreciate what he has done for us. Some might say "well that's his job", but he went well above in our opinion. Again, I can't express how happy and beyond satisfied we are with Art's performance. TOP NOTCH! Thank you, Art, for finding our home and sticking with us from such a far distance. We are truly appreciative."
"I honestly cannot say enough about how happy we are to have chosen Art Fonseca to be our Realtor®. I had no idea how much time and effort goes into selling a home, and Art made the entire process seem almost effortless. We initially tried to sell our house ourselves and quickly realized we were in over our heads. Art even went above and beyond to help ensure the buying of our home in another state, went smoothly as well. I will undoubtedly recommend Art to any and all friends I come across needing to buy or sell their home in the Austin area. Simply said, Art is AWESOME!"
"We had an amazing experience with Art and his team. Art helped us make informed decisions in our multiple-offer situation. He was thoughtful in educating us on the market and looked out for our best interests above anything else. His dedication to his clients is obviously part of his team culture since we had 5-star service from everyone we interacted with. We felt secure in knowing that no stone was left unturned by Art and his team and would highly recommend them to anyone who values integrity and good service."
"Art made my buying experience painless. He's very knowledgeable about the buying process and eased any concerns I had. He put me in touch with a lender, a home inspector, insurance agent, and all were better-priced, more convenient options than I could find on my own. Lastly, he made a charitable donation in my name after the sale, which was much appreciated."
"I've enjoyed working with Art. He made me feel comfortable throughout the whole home buying process. The home selling process is going well and after going live yesterday, we already have a showing booked for this evening. Art was very professional, but also down to earth where he wasn't talking over my head or anything, as I know very little about the real estate market. He was also always there when I needed a question answered, but also giving me my space and not asking too much of me. Kind of like taking one step at a time approach, and that worked well."
"Art was helpful, informative, honest, and very dedicated to helping my wife, daughter, and I find the perfect home for our needs. He is always professional and yet still manages to feel like a friend every time you are around him. He is extremely patient during the home shopping process which truly removed a lot of the stress from that situation. My wife and I, both, loved our experience with Art Fonseca. I will use him when I'm ready to sell as well as when we're ready to grow into a bigger home. I can't recommend him enough."
"We were VERY pleased with Art, and I am so glad that we chose him to represent us. He went way above and beyond our expectations. If we had to do this all over again, there would be nobody else that we would choose except for him. I will highly recommend him to anybody. Art is by far the BEST in our eyes. We came into this buying a house" project blinded I shall say, and he was generous enough to walk us through the process. Art is a very helpful man who was always there when we had a question and very easy to get a hold of."
