“My wife Susan and I recently purchased a beautiful four bedroom home in Lost Creek. We would have never found it without the help of Sheila Paynter and the group at Wilson Goldrick Realtors. We met Sheila over the July 4th holiday weekend, after three months of unsuccessfully searching for a home. Sheila listened carefully to our goals, and thoughtfully developed a search criteria based on our budget and our “best case scenario” wish list. Consistently, she would present opportunities in our target region, some of which we would learn about before they hit the market. I continue to compliment Sheila’s willingness to make herself available by phone, email and text, as many issues were time sensitive.
We had no better advocate during our real estate search than Sheila. She raised various questions to sellers and agents that we would not have thought to ask. Once we selected the perfect house and were under contract, Sheila’s value really shined through. She guided us well through the inspection and repair processes, increasing the value of our purchase dramatically. Every recommended service provider delivered what was expected reliably. Sheila’s warmth, dependability and character have continued to be an asset through to closing and as we have gotten familiar with our new neighborhood. Susan and I couldn’t recommend someone any higher than we do Sheila Paynter and Wilson Goldrick. Together, we finished our difficult search in a hotly contested real estate market with a home that provided everything on our wish list. Our two young daughters often ask about Sheila and think of her as a close family friend. Hopefully we will be in this property for many years. However, should we find ourselves beginning the search process again, my first call will be to Sheila.”

“My husband and I recently relocated to Austin from Dallas. Our time was limited and most everything had to be handled long distance. Sheila Paynter could not have been more accommodating and helpful. She was more than willing to do whatever was necessary to find us the perfect house and took care of many of the details for us; going above and beyond what was expected, even after the move. We would definitely recommend Sheila to anyone needing to buy or sell a home.”

“We were very pleased with her professionalism during the selling of our home located in the Austin Mueller Subdivision. She was very knowledgeable of the local market and was willing to make the calls to cultivate and close the sale. She has been one of the best realtors we have used in our 15+ transactions. We always knew where we stood with Sheila. We have and will continue to recommend her to our friends. We will use her again if we elect to enter the Austin market in the future.”

“Sheila Paynter doesn’t just show you three houses and calls it a day. When you go out with Sheila to look at available properties, you had better have on your comfortable shoes and be prepared for a thorough and tireless house-hunting experience. Sheila won’t stop until you do. We appreciated that when we came from out of town to house hunt in Austin. Better still, Sheila gave us objective feedback about the homes we looked at which helped us make an informed decisions – and we felt that helped us make a better investment. We’d recommend Sheila to anyone who is unhappy with their current realtor and the choices they’re seeing. She helped us make the most of our time and our money, so we could find just the right fit in Austin.”

“Sheila took the time to get to know our needs, held our hand throughout the selling and buying process, and represented our interests succinctly when meeting with buyers and sellers. She proved to be a wealth of information during our relationship and gave valuable advice when needed. Not only does Sheila know Austin and it’s neighborhoods, she is a great resource for architects, builders, designers, etc. She truly made our home selling and property buying experience smooth and enjoyable!”
