Dorothy found a perfect set of properties that met my needs, and was very responsive to questions and special requests. Pleasure to work with! – Brendan Crowe
I've known Dorothy for a while, though hadn't kept in touch. So, it was pure kismet when I realized she was doing real estate right when we were ready to sell. She made the process easy - she came to us and we went over the process, what was our part and what was hers in said process. She listened to what we were looking for and gave us suggestions for the best way to get it. She went over all the costs so there were no surprises at the end. Would definitely recommend her to local friends and family. Thanks Dorothy for everything. – Kathy Wood
Working with Dorothy was incredible, and we couldn't recommend her more highly. I don't think we would have ended up with the perfect house if it wasn't for her - we found ourselves relying on her advice and expertise with every home we were considering. Her knowledge of remodeling is a huge bonus too and helped us be better aware of potential repairs when we were considering older homes. Austin is a hard market to navigate, and Dorothy's personable, warm and funny nature really helped get us through every step of the process. Please just go ahead and work with Dorothy - she is a gem and you will be happy you did! – Ali Nichols
I had the best experience working with Dorothy Trainer! She helped me navigate the bustling Austin rental market and found me a great place in South Austin in July 2021. I would definitely recommend working with Dorothy if you're looking for a new spot. – Marten Carlson
Dorothy worked very hard to find us a home that fit our special needs in Riverside! I had very specific requests and we got everything we needed. – Sandra Phillips
I recently worked with Dorothy to find a house in Austin and she was fantastic. I have worked with several real estate agents in the past and none were nearly as attentive, responsive, or committed to finding me the perfect home to suit the needs of my family and I in a timely manner. The current real estate market in Austin is so hot that it’s difficult to get agents to give you the time of day but once I found Dorothy she was on the case seven days a week and didn’t give up until she found me a home. I would not hesitate to use her again and gladly give her the highest recommendation. – Justin Bergerone
Dorothy was amazing, knowledgeable, and dedicated. We were first-time homebuyers who greatly appreciated her support and expertise. She made the process much more manageable and kept us focused on finding and securing the perfect home. Dorothy was approachable and professional. The amount of effort and research Dorothy put into each home allowed us to make smart, competitive offers in a rapidly shifting market. Her attention to detail was shown when she helped us successfully navigate the negotiation process to secure our home. Throughout the process, Dorothy worked with our schedules and was always responsive. – Roxann Medina
