We absolutely loved working with you. You were very thoughtful, professional, and personable. We always felt that you were truly looking for our best interest and fighting for us. You were always very timely with any questions, you worked very hard with the research you would provide to us, and you always wanted to keep us satisfied and not pushing us to something we did not like.
Our first time home buying experience was great. You made the process very efficient. You answered all the questions we had, even if it was something that did not pertain to your arena, you never hesitated to contact the builders or the lender for further clarification for us so that we understood all the questions we had.
We would absolutely recommend your services to our family and friends! We trust that they would be in great hands with you after our experience with you.
We are so grateful for how patient you were with us throughout the process and for all your help and guidance. We are thankful to God for blessing us with you and your kind nature, Alka!

"Alka has been very helpful, we first met her when we needed help renting a home. She made the process fast and smooth. Once we were ready to look for a home we knew she was the person to go to. She is very professional helpful, and caring. As first time home buyers we were nervous going into this process, once we started working with her she made us feel at ease. She went above and beyond to help us find the perfect home for our family to grow. We are very appreciative and have the utmost respect for the work Alka has done for us, and without a doubt we would recommend her to our friends and family." – Frank & Judith Flores
I have worked with Ms. Alka Shah for over 3 years now and engaged her services for two separate property purchases. I have worked with different Realtors for about 20 years for various property related transactions. Working with Alka has by far been the best experience I have ever had.
Alka is an extremely knowledgeable, hard working, and diligent person who takes her profession and client interactions very seriously. On both my property purchase engagements, Alka quickly identified my needs and got to work with identifying prospective locations and sorting out best options that fit my requirements. Alka was also very proactive in negotiating with the sellers, protecting my interest, and making sure I got the best price for the properties we eventually ended up buying. Most importantly, Alka was extremely patient with our dealings and I never felt I was being rushed into completing a deal. This I think is the most distinguishing aspect of working with Alka.
Almost all other Realtors I have worked with in the past wanted to get their deals done with as soon as possible so they could move on to the next. I will almost certainly engage Alka for my next property related transaction.

"I never planned on owning my own practice within the first year of graduating from chiropractic school, and honestly, it may not have even been in my 3 year plan. This isn't because I wasn't ready, it was because I knew how hard it was for someone my age to have all the pieces fall into place to purchase a small business. Many property owners would look at me and my financial history, which was about what you'd expect from a 26 year old, recently married and graduated Doctor. I never owned a business in my life and since I didn't have the history they were looking for, began to get taken advantage of. Then Alka came along. She made to process as easy and seamless as possible. She stood in there and negotiated with the landlords and got me a deal that was not only reasonable, but fair. Now I have a practice open in the center of the greater Austin area and it's mainly due to her. And even if I do plan to either expand or change locations, I know who I'll call to help." – Dr. Davis
"I can never forget your exceptional hard work in successfully selling my home in Austin. It was an enormous challenge for me and especially for you due to the economy but you were so positive and you channeled your positive attitude to me every time we met while marketing my Austin home. We worked great together as a team. This team effort consisted of getting the best home designer to stage my Austin home inside as well as outside to very closely resemble a page from the Home & Garden magazine. But nothing matched your continual efforts in marketing my home by literallywalking the hard pavement in locating prospective buyers. The pavements were very very hot but that never stopped you. You always gave your 110 percent no matter what obstacles were in your way. You were always available when I needed you and never left me in the dark and that was very important to me. You were successful because you worked very hard and never lost your faith. Keep up your hard work and faith and with these two elements you will always be successful. Thank you so much for making my dream come true. Thank you for your kindness and most importantly your friendship." – Mary Frances Garza
"We had the opportunity to have Alka Shah as our realtor in both selling and buying of a home. We are glad we made that decision and have been very happy with the level of service we received. She has been meticulous and pays attention to every detail for her clients. We had a tough situation in our selling process and if it weren't for Alka we would have had numerous delays and penalties to deal with. She has gone above and beyond our expectations in every way. All in all, it was a great experience and if we had to do it all over again we would still pick her as our realtor" – Nehal & Krishna Mehta
"My husband and I had a very pleasant and positive experience in selling our home with JB Goodwin Realtor, Alka Shah. Alka communicated with us every step of the way. Her guidance, tenacity, and experience were very productive throughout the entire process, from preparing to list the home all the way through to the closing, and even beyond. We would definitely use her services again and recommend her to others." – Martin & Laurie Morales
