My Testimonials

Here is what past clients have had to say about Pearl:

You’ re always so kind and patient and always go above and beyond. Thank you.”
~Deb D

Working with Pearl on both the sale of our Bee Cave house and purchase of our new Lakeway house was an absolute pleasure. Things had to happen fast and Pearl made it happen. She is an easy-going, fun person to work with and her knowledge of the area real estate and property market is impressive. Her genuine interest in our needs and desires made buying our new home a fantastic experience. She was patient, extremely attentive, and offered sound advice during the entire process. Valarie and I couldn’t be happier with our new real estate investment or with the service we received from Pearl. We would certainly recommend Pearl Jones to any and everyone.

~ Bruce and Valarie

Pearl is AMAZING!

This was our first time buying a house and Pearl made it so easy. She is very responsive and timely in her communications via phone, email or text. She recommended we go with her preferred lender and I am so glad we did because it saved us a TON of money, we can’t thank her enough for that! There were a few times when we were waiting for documents from someone else and she would get on them until we got what we needed. What a joy to work with. Thank you Pearl we couldn’t have done it without you.

Pearl is fantastic!  The best relator that I have ever worked with.  From the moment we started working together, she was easy to work with, quick, on top of it and very knowledgeable.  She helped stage my house and navigate me through the process of selling, making the entire process smooth easy.  We even had an offer on the house less than a day after it was on MLS!  When searching for a place to lease, she was quick to point out concerns and helped narrow down the types of places we’d be interested in.  In a few years, I will be searching for a new house.  When I do, I will definitely give her a call.


Pearl was everything we could ask for in an excellent real estate agent.  She was patient with our requirements to limit showing times to better fit our multi-generational family schedules. She helped guide us through the listing / sales process and was always there when we needed her. Yes, Pearl was everything we could ask for in a topnotch real estate agent as well as a trusted friend.!”

-Roger & Patt

I can heartily recommend Pearl Jones, who came through for me when circumstances forced me into a short sale in Austin, TX.  Pearl was always patience, understanding and upbeat, even when I was angry or frustrated by the process.  She took care of most direct interaction with the bank, which certainly made the whole experience a LOT less unpleasant.  She found a buyer very quickly at a very reasonable price and, crucially when things threatened to fall apart, once, or twice (or three times) she negotiated between all the many involved parties and kept the deal alive right through ’til closing.
-Richard S.

I referred Pearl to a client of mine who needed to short sale an investment property and she did an amazing job, getting it sold in record time with little hassle to my client!

-Brett Synicky

I have been a Real Estate Broker for almost 20 years I have tended to steer clear of Short Sales because of several bad experiences in the past so when I first contacted Pearl Jones about a Short Sale she listed I was skeptical.

I could not have been more wrong…

Pearl was very knowledgeable; very honest; extremely diligent in dealing with the various entities involved; made sure that every detail of the sale was in place when we closed; and was able to get the Short Sale consummated in a time fame that frankly I did not believe would have been possible.

I would HIGHLY recommend Pearl to any one contemplating doing a Short Sale far more than any other Short Sale agent  I have ever had dealings with in the past.  She was terrific!

Thanks Pearl!!!

-Robert Corwin, Real Estate Broker

Pearl helped us buy our home six years ago.  Now she is helping us sell our home!  She is very good at her job! I highly recommend Pearl!

Carole K.

Pearl did a masterful job selling our home in summer 2015.  While we personally know several trust-worthy agents in the area, I am very glad that we decided to go with Pearl.  She set our expectations, laid out the plan, and helped us get the house ready.  The stager she used gave us 8 pages of suggestions on things to fix or cleanup!   So it was a lot of work to get ready, but the house and the listing pictures looked amazing afterwards.  It still took about 40 days to sell, given how busy the market was.  We listed mid-June, and things really didn’t pick up until the weekend after July 4th was over.  We ended up getting more than our target price.  Pearl fastidiously reviewed all documents and caught one item that the title company had missed.  Even after the sale, Pearl followed up and even send a reminder for Homestead Exemption.  A ++

-Alex M.

Pearl is awesome. She provided insight as to where we should price our house in a competitive area and within 24 hours we had an offer.  Pearl’s experience and drive kept our minds as ease during the selling process as she assisted in getting matters organized around the house. Her style of communication is easy and kept us informed at every stage and we knew what to expect next.  We highly recommend Pearl if you are looking for someone to make the sale of your house a seamless experience.

– John L

At our very first meeting, she listened carefully to our goals and preferences, and patiently helped us stay true to those as we were house hunting over the next month.  It’s easy to get distracted and feel pressure as weeks pass while seeing many houses that don’t quite fit the requirements, and it was great to have Pearl as our compass to help keep us on the right path.  She was never in a hurry for us to make a decision, even playing devil’s advocate to ask us what things would make a potential house hard to sell in the future.  We also appreciated how quickly she was available to get us into see new listings and respond to our inquiries.

– Alex

Pearl is fantastic! She was with us when we bought our first house three years ago. I was six months pregnant, overwhelmed, and confused by the entire process. She helped my husband and I understand what to expect, how to prepare for all the different steps, and even after closing checked in on us to see how things were going. We had such a good experience the first time that when it was time to sell that house and buy a new one, she was the only person we thought about to help us with both transactions. Selling our house was an entirely new experience, and very difficult to do with a toddler! But Pearl was there to help us come up with strategies on how to stage/show the house and what to expect from the various buyers and their agents that would be coming through. She was there for every silly question or complaint that I had, and in the end we accepted an offer (one of many to choose from) after only three days on the market. I believe this is 100% due to her expertise in pricing and marketing. She walked us through the closing process as the sellers and helped us understand the different things that would be expected of us; again, always there to answer my silly questions.
We were eager to start looking for our new house and she was quick to help us narrow down our search, take us to properties, and when we finally found the house we wanted she was unwavering in the negotiation and steps up to closing. There’s a lot that goes on with concurrent selling and buying, and for the average homeowner it’s not something we experience often so the process always feels new and overwhelming. My husband and I feel very fortunate that Pearl was there with us through it all. She made a very stressful experience one that was fun and satisfying. We always tell our friends that if they’re going to be buying or selling, they need to call Pearl!

– Jessica

I would recommend Pearl Jones with the highest degree of satisfaction.  She is a consummate professional who understands the unique differences in the West/SW Austin real estate market. Pearl did a wonderful job in listing and sell my home in Rough Hollow.  She was also key in the purchase and construction of my first home along with helping me locate and purchase of my current home here in Rough Hollow.  Feel free to call me if you would like any more information.

– Chris

Pearl was awesome to work with for both selling our house and buying a new one. Our last selling experience lasted 9 months and we still never sold the house. Our house had 2 offers within the first two days on the market with Pearl. She moved quickly and kept us informed every step of the way. She’s also just a fun person. I highly recommend her!

– Mark & Meredith

I wanted to say thank you for the work you have done for us. You are certainly a professional and I look forward to the next occasion we have to work together.

– Sam M.

It was nice to work with you. You are so helpful on this case. I have a lot of short sale cases that fall apart.

– Kimo (Real Estate Agent who represented the buyer, I was listing agent)

I can’t say enough good things about what Pearl has done for me. I was in my house for over 5 years. Times got gard. I was looking at a foreclosure and years of bad credit, dealing with tons of calls from the bank. Pearl came in and saved me. She dealt with both banks, and all the stress that goes with dealing with banks and financial institutes. I wish I would have met her sooner. No stress for me. She was upfront and honest about everything. It was not about the bottom line with her. It was all about doing the right thing. She has a great personality in any given situation. She got the job done quick and ended up with money in my pocket that I wouldn’t have before.
My credit was saved from foreclosure to a short sale. Pearl is an amazing broker and knows exactly what she is doing I will reconnect her to everyone I know I will certainly use her in the future. Great experience and again she is the stress buffer between you and your future.

– Cindy

When we decided to sell our home, Pearl came to us highly recommended and we were not disappointed. She gave us her professional presentation of the process ahead of us and a thorough and realistic assessment of the Austin market. She had our home listed quickly, immediately began to market our home and had an acceptable offer within 12 days. We have sold homes in other markets, but never experienced the professional hands on expertise that Pearl provided to us. She did a wonderful job and has become a friend in the process. We will of course recommend her to others. – Charles and Jung B.

We recently closed on the sale of our home with Pearl Jones. It was a nightmare dealing with our lender and one department not communicating with the other department. Pearl was great at communicating with us and letting us know what was going on step-by-step throughout the transaction. We would recommend her as your short sale specialist because she knows what she is doing and tries to make the process as painless as possible.

– Jason & Shelly, Spicewood, TX

Pearl Jones was a genuine and true professional when we asked her to help us with our short sale of our beautiful home. Our Situation was a bit precarious at best under the financial weight of needing to sell our home while facing a declining housing market and our own financial and medical issues.  She was a light at the end of a foreclosure tunnel. With her knowledge I was able to depend on her and trust that our home would be sold and we would not have to foreclose. Pearl became a true friend and a realtor that I will come to again when it’s time to buy or sell.  Please feel free to call me as a reference.

– Monica C. Bastrop, TX

Pearl is truly the best Realtor I’ve ever worked with and I’ve worked with quite a few! She is truly a professional and really cares about the process and her clients. She’s always available, by phone, text, email and in person (even on Sundays!)  Buying a house can be stressful, but Pearl makes the process very easy and she’s just a great communicator. My husband and I feel that we not only gained a great Realtor, but a great friend too! I will be referring Pearl to anyone I know that is looking to buy or sell their home.

– Jamie & Brian B.

My wife and I wanted to take a moment to thank you for helping us with our Short Sale. We appreciate all the time you spent on the phone with the lenders and the buyer’s agent. You made the Short-Sale process as painless as possible and stuck with it to the end… I wish you the best of luck in the future, and look forward to sending potential real estate prospects your way.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank Pearl Jones. for her expertise in handling the sale of my property. Pearl is on top of everything in this ever changing real estate market and very efficient.She answers all questions, answers all phone calls and  all e-mails. Pearl is a top-notch realtor and rates high scores in my opinion. My property was on the market only a short time and she had it sold. Best experience I have ever had in selling. Thanks, Pearl. you are number one.

– G. Doyle

I am so glad that I referred my friends/client to you. Short sales are not my specialty, but you are a short sale pro! Any other agent would have given up, but you met the challenges of working with with the mortgage company with confidence and professionalism. My friends enjoyed working with you and are very happy about the sale of their home. I would not hesitate to refer another client to you. Thank you so much for all your patience and hard work on this listing.

– Amy Hayes with Rock Solid Realty

We are so happy that we chose Pearl Jones as our Realtor. Not only does she know our neighborhood well, but she has an excellent understanding of the housing market in general. She is motivated, honest, listens and follows through on her end of the entire process in a timely manner. She did a great job marketing our property for optimal exposure as we had an average of two prospective buyers a day touring the house. We would highly recommend Pearl Jones as a Realtor.

– Ken & Sally N.

Marge and I want to take this opportunity to thank you very much for the time, effort, and energy you devoted to the selling of our home.  In these difficult times where homes seem to remain on the market for extraordinary periods of time, you have proved to be a true professional.  From the first day we met, your communication skills, coupled with your high degree of energy made this transaction appear seamless. Your open house ideas, your creative flyers as well as your verbal notifications to your fellow agents were definitely superior selling skills.  Yes, we had some hurdles to overcome but, with your guidance and expertise we were able to list, market and close our home sale in less than forty five days.

– Roger & Marge Smith

 Pearl Jones is not really our Realtor but more like family.  She is always taking care of us!

– John & Tammy,  South Austin, TX

Pearl was great to deal with and took care of everything in a timely manner. She totally understood our needs and got our family into the home of our dreams!

– Adam K. Round Rock, TX (First Time Home Buyer)

I was very intimidated by the home buying experience, my husband was in Afghanistan, so I was left to face the challenge alone. I was lucky enough to have Pearl by my side. She walked me through the entire process- holding my hand and educating me along the way. She went out of her way on more occasions than I can count. I can honestly say I would not have made it through the process without her. My husband and I now have a home that we love! In addition to her expertise and professionalism on the job she also went out of her way to have a sign made for my husband’s return from Afghanistan. Her and her husband surprised me on the day of Marcos return with a huge sign that read “Welcome Home Marcos”. I cannot begin to put into words what this meant to me and my husband!!!

– Brandy Kyle, TX (First Time Home Buyer)

Pearl Jones was a true Godsend for our family. She is exceptionally professional, persistent, caring, and honest. Dealing with a long-distance short-sale is a serious challenge, but Pearl’s sincerity and integrity made it as bearable as possible. Contacting Pearl and enlisting her help was the best thing we could have done. She’s a true expert on short-sales and a pleasure to work with. We give her our highest recommendation.

Ray Zimmerman & Becky Bourgeois, Orange, CA

Thank you for everything.  You would think I bought a million dollar home for all you did for me.

– Beth Georgetown, TX (First Time Home Buyer)

I just wanted to let you (in case I haven’t lately) that you are the absolute best realtor (and great friend) that we could’ve ever asked for.  Thanks a million or everything you’ve done to help us out; you’ve made our move to Austin as smooth as silk!

– Scott S. (relocated from Korea)

Purchasing a home is not an easy task and can be a headache for a first time buyer.  Pearl was able to walk me through the ins and outs of purchasing a home. I’m pleased that the overall process went pretty smoothly from start to finish with no paperwork issues. I highly recommend her!

– Thao P. (First Time Home Buyer)

As a first time home owner, I am blessed to have Pearl as my (listing) Realtor. From the first time I met her, I was immediately impressed with her outgoing yet warm personality. She is a true professional and has work diligently to put my interest first. I would certainly recommend her to my relatives and friends. 

– Val T.

Over the past few years I have bought and sold several homes and have worked with numerous realtors. In 2007 I hired Pearl to sell my home, and level of service she provided was second to none. Pearl is so far superior to any realtor i have dealt with that she simply isn’t in the same league. I am selling another home now, and it is unfortunately in another state so I cannot use Pearl … I contracted a highly recommended realtor that has won numerous awards including top agent in the state several times, and he doesn’t hold a candle to Pearl … I wish I could have brought her here with me to sell this house! I would say to anyone looking for a realtor in the Austin area, HIRE PEARL! She’s simply the best!

– Art & Elly F.

WOW! Sibel and I had high hopes for leasing our home quickly, but we never expected for it to be done … at full asking price. As you know, we previously had the home listed for lease with another area realtor for over three months without a single offer and very few showings. We want you to know that we think you did a terrific job of marketing our home. We could not be more pleased. What impressed us was your professionalism, responsiveness, class, and impressive ability to keep things on an even keel. We are also very grateful for your offer to help us should we need a little help before our move. If anyone ever asks us for a recommendation on a real estate agent in Austin, we will recommend you without hesitation.

Steve & Sibel A.

Pearl Jones is hardworking, organized, has a positive attitude and is an agent you can depend on. She was always available to answer questions and continually offered her assistance. Throughout the construction of our house, Pearl maintained communication by regularly sending us e-mail, pictures and progress reports. We loved the fact that she kept in touch with us even after the purchase of our home. Her dedication and willingness to help made the process of buying and building our house a joy. If you’re looking for an agent you can trust, we highly recommend Pearl Jones.

– Nalee & Reggie M.

My wife and I listed our home in the Lake Pointe Subdivision with a realtor we had used before to sell our previous house and to purchase the one here at Lake Pointe.
The home sat on the market for over six months and had two price reductions of $10,000 each and had no offers. 
My wife and I decided it was time for a change besides the price and interviewed Pearl Jones. She responded to our questions and concerns with “I know how to market your home which hasn’t been done right so far.” We signed her up and our home was sold in five days with terms we were happy with. I might add that the home was in excellent condition inside and out, passed the buyers inspection with no issues so this leads me to believe it was Pearl that made the difference. The next time we need a realtor for buying or selling, Pearl Jones will be the first one we call on!

– Stacy and Wolf E.

Pearl, you made our move into Lake Pointe so easy – you really set the bar when it comes to delivering service! Before we met Pearl, our move to the Lake Travis area from just south of Austin was expected to be turbulent. Pearl came into the picture and not only made our move effortless, but exceeded the level of client service that we had hoped for! She worked tirelessly and in the process of our negotiations she re-defined professionalism. As long as Pearl is around, we’re not afraid to move again!

– Mark & Heather L.

We do want to say our experience with Pearl was fantastic! Pearl is absolutely a professional in her field! She thinks of everything, her questions and understanding of what she does for her clients in phenomenal! We felt she was really looking out for the best home to meet our needs!  Thank you again Pearl!
