I wanted to commend you and your team on the tremendous professionalism and competence you showed in managing my recent purchase of the commercial property in Del Valle. I recognize that The GoodLife Team is specifically known for utilizing advanced technologies to market and close on transactions. However, in the nearly 30 Austin real estate transactions I have undertaken, this is the first time that a technology platform actually gave me a quantifiable and direct financial advantage. Multiple bidders were aggressively pursuing the subject property and three offers presented themselves within minutes of my initial offer. None the less, the detailed information we had at hand complimented by your personal attention to this transaction and presence at the negotiating table, won the day. There are not many transactions that start on a Saturday morning, generate a signed contract by noon, close on the following Wednesday, and wind up on the cover of the Friday edition of the Austin American Statesman. This was such a transaction because your team kept their eye on the ball, and never dropped a single detail. The GoodLife team exceeded all of my expectations, and I am personally convinced that your people, your systems and your commitment are a genuine advantage to those who utilize your services. With thanks, Ron Ginor, MD Dr. Ginor, Austin, TX (August 2010)
James and I were very happy with Brett and thought he did a wonderful job. We appreciated all that he did for us as well as the rest of the team, everyone I had contact with over the phone and email were very nice and prompt to get back to us. Overall a great experience and we will definitely call Brett again when we decide to move again (although I don’t think that will happen anytime soon as we are very happy with our new home). We will definitely recommend you guys to friends as well. Tanya & James McReynolds, Austin, TX (February, 2009)
Garry took care of our Joint Venture project and my individual project with professionalism and integrity. Along the way we became very good friends and I count him and Krisstina as one of my primary networks of help. In fact I will miss the interaction with the entire Good Life Team until my next development project is undertaken. Jerry Pritchard, Austin, TX (January, 2009)
All calls and emails were always returned in a timely fashion and I always felt taken care of. Robert Rosen, Brentwood, CA (Sept & Nov 2008)
The experience we’ve had with Garry has been an enjoyable partnership. He’s been extremely accommodating, patient, and a continued resource. His knowledge of the Austin area and understanding of my personal taste allowed us to start targeting appropriate listings very quickly. The GoodLife Team has always been extremely welcoming and accommodating to our needs. Matt Ewing, Austin, TX (November, 2008)
The service we received went above and beyond my expectations. We have had not so pleasant experience with other real estate companies in the past so our confidence has been restored because of The Goodlife Team. The Goodlife Team made us feel that our priorities and our needs were important…that we were important. We were not just another client. We were treated as their only client. Suzie Felux, Austin, TX (November, 2008)
Through a long and difficult sale an unusual property, our unavailability because of travel schedules, a constantly changing housing market – Doug Stewart remained steady on our behalf until our home was finally sold. The actual sales process was seamless; it was the almost insurmountable marketing obstacles which were daunting. Other realtors had lost heart but Doug’s enthusiasm remained high. He continued to attract many potential buyers and to explore all options with them. We are so thankful that we had Doug at our side through this trying time. We have no regrets and extend our sincerest thanks and praise to Doug Stewart. Anne & Gene Lucas, Dripping Springs, TX (December, 2008)
The GoodLife team listed our house and gave us weekly updates on the showings and progress. They advertised well and we felt really confident in there services at all times. They had really great communication and the service was top notch. Lindsey & Nick Hart, Castro Valley, CA (October, 2008)
Dear Doug, Thank you so much for all your efforts in holding the Barton Creek deal together. Your work ethic and professionalism are truly appreciated. I hope that we have the opportunity to work together again in the future. All the best. Holly. Holly Mace Massingill, Austin, TX (Agent on other side of transaction)
The team was professional and we felt like you really cared about us and our needs. Rick & Julie Harding, Austin, TX (September, 2008)
The Goodlife team was very knowledgeable about the market, provided very good advice on how best to position our home for a successful sale and took care of everything. We are living in the United Kingdom and it was extremely helpful to have the Goodlife there taking care of getting the house empty and ready for sale. I can’t recommend them highly enough! Kathy Schneider, United Kingdom (August, 2008)
With the exception of a few bumps, the process was very smooth. We couldn’t be happier. Hugh & Brittany Whitted, Austin, TX (April, 2008)
I was very pleased with Aida’s professionalism and assistance in helping me buy a house. Tola Mosadomi, Austin, TX (April, 2008)
I wanted to thank you for taking such good care of Rob Porta and his wife a few months ago. You helped him find a home for his family in South Austin. Rob had interviewed for a position with Liaison before moving to Austin and I highly recommended the Good Life Team, of course. Rob came into interview for another position recently and reported that you had helped him and that he was very happy with the experience and the home. Thank you for the great care and service you extended. Mark Caddell, Austin, TX (August, 2008)
It was a great day when you came to our place and signed a contract to have your company sell our house. Your professional advice on price comps for similar homes in the area was right on, and the advice on how to clean up the property acreage for sale made a big difference. Best of all to sell our property in twenty- one days is unbelievable. We assumed that it would take several months for such a large home. Even though we felt that our house was in great shape, twenty- one days is still unbelievable. The intricacies of the purchase of our condo required fortitude and expertise. Peg and I cannot thank you enough for your hard work on the above- referenced sale and purchase. We can tell you for sure that recommending you to anyone would be a pleasure. Many thanks again. Peg and Dave Stegmann, Dripping Springs, TX
Thank you Doug for your note and the good job you did in selling my property! I am glad to see that it will be in good hands and used as it should be. I always thought that the actual process of selling the property would be a major headache in terms of paperwork etc. It went amazingly smooth! If you ever need a reference for out of town sellers, tell them to contact me. You were always my first choice for a Broker and I’m happy I stuck with you. Tom M., Twin Falls, ID
Doug was a delight to work with. At every step, I felt that our real estate transaction was a win-win. Doug’s experience, patience, and expertise were invaluable to my husband and I as we searched for and found the perfect home for our family! I tell all of family and friends that Doug is the man to see for real estate in Wimberley! Kellie R., Wimberley, TX
I first met Doug Stewart about 4 years ago. I wanted to move to the Hill Country. I got Doug’s name on the Internet and called him. He met me the following afternoon with listings of the area to show me. We went through them and picked out ones I was interested in and decided to meet the following day to look at Hill Country property. Doug was informed, knew the area, and was motivated to show me what I was interested in. Doug was always looking to take care of me and make sure all details were taken care of. I have recommended Doug to some friends and they all were happy with the service that he provides. Doug is a solid professional and cares about his clients. I want to thank Doug for doing his homework and focusing on what I was looking for. Peter C., Wimberley, TX
Doug represented a seller of some land that we purchased and we have to say that our experience with him was wonderful! He was extremely helpful, informative, and always went out of his way to be available to us to not only answer any and all questions that we had, but to extend his time to us for countless visits in viewing the property that we were interested in. We highly recommend Doug Stewart to be of service – he truly takes an interest in helping people! The Olsons, Wimberley, TX
Doug made our real estate purchase more enjoyable by his extensive knowledge of the area in which we wanted to purchase, and his high level of professionalism. Susan and Joe B., Dripping Springs, TX
Scott Wiley did an excellent job. Along with being great to work with, he got my home sold quickly in a slumping market. David  Mintner, Austin, TX (February, 2008)
The attention Doug gave to my property search was above and beyond, and his knowledge of Real Estate made a difficult (HUD) negotiation very easy. Not only was my real estate transaction successful, but Doug helped me learn a lot as well. I would refer Doug any day to anyone. His professionalism and knowledge of real estate enabled me to make my first-time home purchase. Doug’s patience and love for his job made the home that I bought exactly what I was looking for. Brad L., Austin Fire Fighter
Doug Stewart has been my realtor for both buying and selling real estate in the hill country, and I highly recommend him to anyone needing help buying or selling. His knowledge and love of the area really show in his efforts, which were impressive, no matter what the size of the transaction. Doug will be my first choice for any future help with buying or selling real estate. Noel B., Austin/Wimberley, TX
Aida and the GoodLife Team provided excellent service and were always there to answer my questions and concerns. Renee Hernandez, Austin, TX (June 2008)
I would like to thank you for having an agent as helpful, gracious and congenial as Aida Villalpando. Not only did she act as my real estate agent, but she went above and beyond the call of duty in helping me out in small ways (like getting my phone turned on after the phone company lost my deposit) in a very kind and friendly manner. She should be commended for her services. Tommy Laney, Austin, TX (February 2008)
I look forward to doing business with the GoodLife Team down the road. You guys run one of the tightest/streamlined operations in the business. Ryan Campbell, Agent on other side of transaction
Doug helped us sell two investment properties. He gave great advice on pricing, presentation, and the market. Doug is totally trustworthy and works hard for the sale! Jimmy and Annabel H., Wimberley, TX

I really enjoyed working with you on the Turnstone property and would welcome the opportunity to work with you again in the future. Julie Delgado, (Agent on other side of transaction)
I wanted to let you know that I have been working with your contract to close specialist Stacey Rhodes on a very difficult deal. She has been very professional and always cool under pressure. It was a pleasure to work with her. She truly is an asset to your company. DiAnne Acuna, Austin, TX (Mortgage lender on a transaction)
Grant and the GoodLife Team were excellent. Grant worked with me as an out of state seller and quickly developed a comfortable repoire and gained the confidence that I knew I could count on him. I had my home previously listed with another agent and it didn’t sell. The GoodLife Team really knew the Austin market and were aggressive with their marketing and sales efforts to get my home sold fast. It was a pleasure working with Grant and the GoodLife Team. Maggie Aredondo, Sioux Falls, SD (March 2008)
The team offered excellent support and service through a very difficult transaction. They were very instrumental in making sure that closing happened. Paul Kern, Austin (January 2005)
I really wanted to thank you for all your help. You were so friendly and awsome it really made this experience seem easy. I always imagined buying a home to be a scary and complicated process but you mitigated that fear selflessly and made the experience fun. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! Sandra Chavarria, Austin (July 2007)
I couldn’t ask for a friendlier or more capable group of people than Krisstina Wise and the GoodLife Team. They are a credit to the real estate profession. Many thanks!!! Jonathan DiMarco, Austin (January 2007)

Everyone was very considerate and helpful. I appreciate Grant not giving up on finding what I was looking for and for not using high-pressure sales tactics. I’ve been lied to in the past by Real Estate Agents, but I have complete trust in the GoodLife Team – Grant and everyone else on the GoodLife Team were completely truthful.

Dear Julie & Scott, I would like to express my sincere gratitude and thanks to you both for you great help in making this dream become a reality for me. Words will never express the joys that I have and hope to have in the future just because of your help. Without you two the dream of owning that house, would just be an elusive dream or vision, but you have made that difference in making it become a reality. Thanks for getting Amy involved, she was terrific and a great person. I also wish to thank Danna for making closing less stressful, and affording me the privilege to obtain the keys by staying late to deliver them to me. Let me say this without pretense, I think you have a great team and I am very proud of you all. I will not hesitate to recommend future friends and other prospective buyers to solicit your services. Warmest regards, Egbert Egbert Laurent, Austin (August 2005)
The team was very helpful at all times. Judy was always there when I had a question and very helpful with my problems. They went the extra mile to get my home sold, arranging to have new flooring installed, new paint, keeping the lawn mowed and manicured since I live in Florida. They were very caring. Shakera Bari, Miami (November 2005)
