Bishop Dan & Vernell, Bastrop, TX 11/19
My wife and I wish to express sincere thanks to and deep appreciation of Ann Van Zandt of Van Zandt Properties.
We were introduced to Ann as someone who could help us find a property as we relocate from Minnesota to Texas.. Help is an understatement.
Ann worked with us by phone, e-mail and text messaging in preparation for multi-day site visits. During our first face-to-face encounter we established a great relationship. Ann took the time to get to know us and exactly what we liked and disliked.
We lined up approximately 18 properties in multiple cities to see during our two-day stay. Ann put together a reasonable schedule. We were able to hit the ground running.
By the end of the first day Ann had an even better idea of what we wanted including a community that would be suitable. Ann asked if she could add 4 additional proprieties to our list for the second day. We agreed. When we walked into the 3rd of the additional properties my wife said "I love this house".
Ann worked with in writing the purchase agreement and walked with us as we prepared to close within a 30-day window. Ann remained our eyes and ears during the entire process. We closed on time without a hitch.
Ann Van Zandt is the ultimate professional. Her knowledge and expertise of the industry and the area have been a huge benefit to us! If you are considering buying or selling I encourage you to contact Ann Van Zandt!
I'm a Navy veteran, My wife and I have been in the ministry for more than forty years. We're both retired. Ann took the time to get to know us in our various capacities and worked with us perfectly.
Ryan & Bethany, Smithville, TX 10/19
Ann Van Zandt was exceptional with services provided to us in finding our home! She reaches out right away once we were established with our lender and always made herself available whenever we had any questions or concerns along the way. She also made sure everything was going efficiently and in a way that was easy to understand. We appreciated Ann’s support and time throughout finding a home and getting reading for closing. I highly recommend Ann Van Zandt as a top Realtor to use for your new home!
Angela & Randy, Paige, TX 09/19
We highly Recommend Ann as your agent. She was there for us throughout our entire buying experience. She answered every question we had. Thank you Ann for helping us buying our dream home.
Brian, Cedar Creek, TX 08/19
I give Ann five stars for helping me sell my house. For me selling my house was stressful but Ann always kept things positive and kept me level headed. Even late in the process when I was willing to give up more money to get the deal done she kept me from making a mistake and saved me thousands of dollars. In the beginning she was the only person that showed up on time and with all the comps ready to go. While others were basically winging it. Preparation is everything. One thing I loved is she always answers her phone and if not calls back in minutes. In this world this was priceless. Thanks for everything Ann!!!
Ray, Bastrop, TX 04/19
Best choice for remote sale of your property. I needed to sell family property and only wanted to travel to Texas once. Ann and her close ties with the title company made it possible for me to spend about an hour in her office to make it all happen. Our property sold in less than a month, for more than we expected and minimal effort on our part. We could not be happier.
Sandra, Caldwell, TX 04/19
I have bought and sold a number of homes around the country, and all with the assistance of capable realtors. None, however, has come anywhere close to Ann Van Zandt.
Since Ann has been my realtor with two purchases and two sales in Bastrop and Travis Counties, I have clearly seen her skills in all aspects of these experiences.
Ann is experienced and skillful. She is knowledgeable of the market; proficient in all areas of the sales and purchase process, and meticulous in carrying through with all details. She is always prompt and responsive to questions you may have about anything: You can trust her with every aspect of your negotiation.
I have also appreciated her manner: She is straightforward but also always considerate; unintrusive but responsive to suggesting options about offers and other considerations; direct but always warm—plus her sense of humor makes her a delight to work with.
In short, Ann is a consummate realtor. Choose her for your realtor and you will be much more than satisfied in every way.
Alain & Sandy, Bastrop, TX 03/19
It took us a little while to sell our two properties in Bastrop and Ann Van Zandt from Van Zandt Properties has been so kind to us and attentive to our needs. Living in Hawaii she was always here by email or text messaging to help us, and she made our transaction easy and pleasant. I would highly recommend her to those of you ready to purchase or sell their Real Estate.
Callie, Paige, TX, 10/18
Great experience working with Ann. She was very patient and helpful with our long search for the right property and helped us navigate all the closing steps with ease.
Dallas, Bastrop, TX, 09/18
My wife and I live in the D/FW area and were interested in purchasing property in the Bastrop area. Ann was a great help in organizing our wish list and providing property listings from which to choose. After completing our purchase, she continues to be a valuable resource as we move forward with building our dream home.
Mark, Smithville, TX, 08/18
Ann went above and beyond. She is a excellent realtor.
Andrew, Smithville, TX, 08/18
As someone who had never seen the property that needed to be sold, I felt very comfortable that Ann was my eyes and ears for what needed to be done and to get the property sold. Her guidance in listing at a fair price helped us close quickly.
Larry, Bastrop, TX, 05/18
I live out of state and Ann Van Zandt was absolutely the right person for the job of selling my Bastrop property. She was very professional, courteous, and did an amazing job on finding me the right buyers. Ann also made sure everything proceeded smoothly. She made everything so easy and convenient for me.
Gina, Smithville, TX, 05/18
Ann was wonderful. She kept us informed every step of the way. Ann was always friendly and prompt. We highly recommend Van Zandt Properties. Thanks, Ann.
Catherine, Cedar Creek, TX, 04/18
Ann did an excellent job of navigating a difficult property. She was professional all the way! She found the perfect buyer for our property and protected our interests. She is my realtor for life! Thank you Ann!
Daniela, Bastrop, TX, 02/18
Ann is the best. We had so much to do and Ann help us each step of the way. I would use her again if we ever buy another house.
Jaimi, Bastrop, TX, 01/18
We just closed last week on a home/property in Bastrop with Ann as our agent and it was really a great experience. For this particular purchase, we had to move fast and Ann was absolutely the right realtor for the job! She jumped right in with us immediately and made it happen every step of the way. She's straight forward and no-nonsense - exactly what we needed. We specifically wanted a realtor who had the experience and know-how of the Bastrop area - and that's what she delivered 100%. We enjoyed working with Ann and would definitely use her again and/or recommend her in the future.
James & Karen, Bastrop, TX, 01/18
Ann communicates very well with her clients to help keep them informed as to the processes involved in buying a house. She talks to you like a person and not just a number. Highly recommend!
Amanda & Ben, Bastrop, TX, 10/17
Ann did a wonderful job taking are of us and explaining things, as we were first time home buyers. We called her many times for explanations, and help with the finance company. We found her by chance, but are sure glad we did!
Traci & Matthew, Flatonia, TX, 09/17
We were very pleased with communication and willingness to answer any questions or concerns as first time home buyers. She listened and found us the perfect house for us.
Preston, Paige, TX, 06/17
I felt that Ann had my best interests when items came up to be addressed. Ann was knowlegable about these items and helped me feel comfortable in making them.
James & Lupita, Bastrop, TX, 06/17
Wonderful local expertise on the value of homes and neighborhoods. We had a great transaction and was able to get all of the terms we were looking for! Highly recommend for the Bastrop area!
Andre, Bastrop, TX, 05/17
I honestly can't imagine using any other Texas realtor. Ann has helped me through two very, very difficult transactions. She knows her job and also know everyone else's job (lenders, appraisers, inspectors) and knows when they aren't performing. I can't recommend highly enough.
Mary & Chris, Bastrop, TX, 12/16
Ann Van Zandt is the real estate agent you want! She is organized, efficient, knowledgable, and capable! We could not more highly recommend Ann for your real estate needs. Throughout the processs, Ann was on top of things, getting us the best deal on our house to be found. She is the woman for the job, and I would use her again in a heartbeat!
Lila, Austin, TX, 05/16
I had never bought property (i.e., land) before and it took a while to figure out exactly what I was looking for. Ann was endlessly patient and did a great job answering my many questions. My family and I are very happy with our new place in Bastrop County.
Beth, Bastrop, TX, 04/16
Ann was professional and answered all my questions throughout the entire process. I always knew my calls would be answered or returned promptly. She was a pleasure to do business with.
Sandra, Elgin TX, 08/15
I have not purchased or sold many houses and/or real estate, therefore not very knowledgeable of the process. Ann took time to understand and know the type of property and price range I needed. I put complete trust and confidence in Ann. She exceeded my expectations and found the perfect property for me!
Laura & Steve, Bastrop TX, 08/15
Knowing nobody in Bastrop, we went on a referral and reputation alone. Ms. Van Zandt was helpful and thorough but never pushy. We truly felt she had our best interests at heart.
Sherry, Smithville TX, 08/15
I believe that you are very trustworthy. You told me what should be done, what needed to be considered, and kept me informed; not an easy thing to do with a client like myself, who isn't too electronically savvy and who was out of state.
James, Bastrop TX, 08/15
Transaction and advice were professional.
Gene, Bastrop TX, 07/15
Ann, thank you for your excellent advice and service. I highly recommend you because of your energy, proactive work, guidance, and ability to get the job done quickly. Thank you so much!
Cheryl, Smithville TX, 04/15
Ann was great to work with! She communicated clearly and consistently, and always kept our best interests in the forefront. Thanks to Ann, my mother and I successfully sold our pieces of land.
Trey, Paige TX, 04/15
Ann is one of the best realtors we have worked with. She knows the markets and how to quickly overcome hurdles to get the deal done.
Melanie, Paige TX, 03/15
Ann always answered the phone and returned my calls promptly. Her answers to me questions and her suggestions were always clear and in plain English. I really feel fortunate to have had her helping, assisting, and guiding me through this process.
Joel & Pam, Bastrop TX, 10/14
Ann was so nice and helpful. Gave up several Sundays to help us find a home. She kept us in the loop when we were frustrated with the lending company. Thanks Ann!
Justin, Cedar Creek TX, 09/14
Ann was very helpful and offered guidance that helped me get the house I wanted.
Erin, Bastrop TX, 08/14
As a first time home-
Laurie & John, Cedar Creek TX, 08/14
Thanks Ann for your help in selling our house. It was a smooth experience and you are wonderful to work with. I don’t think we have ever had a sale go so quickly or so well.
Bill & Carolyn, La Grange TX, 06/14
Over the years of dealing with real estate and agents, she has been the most honest and forth coming.
Bryan & Beth, Bastrop TX, 06/14
Ann treated this house like it were her own. Managing it for us for over 4 years. She went far beyond what we ever expected from her and took care of every problem that arose without one complaint. Top Notch!!!
Alan, Bastrop TX, 05/14
I highly recommend Ann Van Zandt for all your real estate needs. Buying or Selling, Ann gives 100% plus in meeting a clients needs. She is there to assist a client even after the initial need for her services has been completed.
Debbie & Jeff, Cistern TX, 04/14
She did everything and more to show the houses that I chose. A lot of the time it was at the last minute and it was no problem. She works on your schedule as much as she can. She is helpful and will research for you so you feel comfortable in your purchase.
Heather & Blair, Smithville TX, 02/14
Ann was great! We moved into the area and did not know anyone. She made us feel comfortable and at home. She is very knowledgeable and professional. She was willing to help us with anything we asked for. She helped us close early too!
Rick & Melissa, Wimberley TX, 08/13
This is our 2nd transaction with Ann Van Zandt. She was great the 1st time and better the 2nd time. We really appreciated the computer updates when something in our criteria became available (homes search). We appreciated her keeping us on track of deadlines. At the closing she asked questions to ensure we understood what we were signing.
Donny, Cedar Creek TX, 06/13
Ann was attentive, conscientious, and patient, and was always striving for my wants. I found her to be personable, trustworthy and easy to communicate with. I recommend her wholeheartedly.
Mary & RV, Cedar Creek TX, 02/13
If you want a Realtor who will work tirelessly on your behalf to positively represent the home you are selling, Ann Van Zandt is the Realtor to call. From the first meeting, she was thorough and honest about the state of our home, and fully explained her services. After our first meeting, she kept in constant touch updating us with progress and her discussions with potential buyers. We just felt she was always “there” to answer or ask questions, to educate us about real estate procedures, and to positively represent us, the sellers, in the transaction. If a similar opportunity to buy or sell comes up we will definitely seek the services of Ann Van Zandt.
Alex, Bastrop TX, 12/12
From the moment I called you (Ann) with my “dilemma” you dropped everything to help, you reassured me every step of the way and took time out of you personal life to explain things for me. I so appreciate your helping me through this process!
Stephanie & Chuck, Bastrop TX, 07/12
We bought a new house and sold our previous house with Ann. Ann always kept us informed with feedback from showings of the house we sold. She kept us informed with all options with both the house we bought and sold. Ann was very easy to work with and I highly recommend her as a Realtor.
Randy, Bastrop TX, 01/12
When Ann Van Zandt was chosen as our Realtor we had no idea who she was. Our experience with Mrs. Van Zandt was nothing but positive. I would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone looking for a competent professional Realtor.
Diane & Robert, Bastrop TX, 11/11
Ann was quick to respond to emails, messages, etc. Was prepared to show homes at our convenience!
Buddy & Vivian, Bastrop TX, 9/11
Ann Van Zandt is more than a 5 star agent! She listed our investment property that had to be completely renovated. She worked endlessly and tirelessly meeting contractors and getting quotes and overseeing the entire renovation. She did it all in 3 weeks! She watched over our vacant home and kept us informed of the market changes on a regular bases. When the wildfires took our home, she was still there for us, even though her own homes was under the same threat! Ann is still working with us, getting names of clean up companies to remove the debris-
Rick, Paige TX, 8/11
Ann was great to work with. She kept me informed every step of the way. I never needed to call her; she was always proactive and clear in her communication. And, she sold our home for a premium in a very difficult market!
Randy & Lisa, Rosanky TX, 4/11
Ann is very professional, has an excellent marketing system set up. If you want your home to sell, hire Ann!
Chris & Lisa, Buda TX
Ann was extremely helpful to us with the purchase of our new home in Buda. Ann has excellent attention to detail when reading contracts and was always available to answer our questions, even if it was late in the evening. This is the second time we have used Ann’s services and we would personally recommend her to our friends and family if they ever needed a real estate agent.
Jerry & Jane, Georgetown TX
Once upon a time my fiancé’ and I embarked on the adventure of purchasing a home. We lived in Florida and made our decision to move to Texas, but we did not want to spend any more money on rentals. Browsing through real estate listings we came across Ann Van Zandt. We “hooked up” through the marvels of cyberspace and for the months that followed, Ann became our eyes, ears, and quite frankly our sounding board. She visited homes two and three times. Took additional pictures (to reveal what the listing itself did not show), and basically became a surrogate buyer for us.
Once the perfect home was identified (after a couple of “almost-
When we closed, where one would assume the “deal was done” and she could go merrily on her way to pursue other clients, she again followed up on our behalf on a clerical error made by the title company allocating our home warranty insurance to a different carrier than the one we had chosen.
During the entire process, we became disheartened with the banking process several times, and were seriously considering, canceling the entire process and just waiting until we got to Texas. It was Ann’s tenacity and follow-
I would recommend her to ANYONE who attempts to purchase a home, whether you live in Texas or not, she is true to her word, committed to excellence, and simply pure gold! Thank you Ann Van Zandt!
