"Working with Sam was an absolute delight. She was always very attentive to our specific needs and responded to any and all requests very quickly. In a difficult real estate market, we managed to put our home under contract in less than two weeks at a price we were happy with. Sam went above and beyond the call of duty and for that, my husband and I are most grateful!"
– Kyle and Justin Dyer, Austin TX
"Ricki thank you all for your super help in selling the house! You did a great job and saved me lots of money. I was very impressed with the way you handled all the details. You made it easy for your difficult client. I appreciate Jim and Sam for all they did too. Thanks so very much!"
– Jim Williamson, Austin TX
"My wife and I moved to Austin from Hawaii recently. Because Ricki had helped me buy a home here in 1982 (a very positive experience), we contacted her to help us again. We quickly discovered that Eanes Properties is still top notch after 32 years. It is very much a family affair. Jim and Ricki’s daughter Samantha is now a key player in the business. All three are experts in real estate (they are all Brokers), and we have never seen or heard of a real estate company that can match Eanes level and quality of service. Ricki and Samantha found the perfect home for us quickly. Throughout the process, they made us feel like we were their only clients. We have since used Eanes to purchase another Austin property. But the routine purchase of property is not the story here. The thing that makes the experience noteworthy is that Eanes consistently distinguishes itself from the pack by going well above and beyond the standard call of duty for its clients, both before and after the sale. The examples are too numerous to mention, but suffice it to say that we would enthusiastically recommend Eanes Properties to anyone."

"We were on a six-week deadline to find and close on a house and we couldn’t have found our perfect home without Samantha Soletti of Eanes Properties. Samantha made us a priority, worked around our schedule and explained the process thoroughly. No time was wasted since she listened carefully to our needs and only showed us homes we would be interested in. Samantha even went beyond the call of duty to help with the sale of our prior home. Before we met Samantha we had left another real estate agent who wasn’t meeting our needs. Hiring Samantha was the best thing we did."
– Mitch Wilson and Yvonne Lim, Austin TX
"Sam you are a star! Thank you so much for your tireless work on our part, you have been nothing but a total professional from the very start to the finish, we have enjoyed enormously working with you at every step of the way. We know you worked very hard for us, probably harder than is normal. You have made the major component of our move a real pleasure."
– Paul and Connie Murphy, San Diego CA
"If you have any doubts about finding a Realtor in another state your worries are over if you go with Eanes Properties and Samantha Soletti. My husband visited their website while we were living in California and were planning our move to Austin. We hit the jackpot when we started working with Sam. She sent us lots of information and answered all of our questions on new homes, builders, resale homes, schools, loan info…..you name it. If she did not know the answer, which was very seldom, she always got us the information we needed.
We made a trip to Texas while living in California and Sam was even more helpful in person. She did not hesitate to take us to look at as many houses as we wanted and even suggested additional homes. This was very beneficial because we didn’t know exactly what was “out there” and it allowed us to have more of an open mind; thus making it possible for us to find our perfect home. Samantha represented us honestly, professionally and assertively. She is very sweet but don’t let that fool you; she is pleasantly firm and gets the job done! Since we were in California she did our walk through and probably did it more effectively than we would have. She then went back again to make sure all repair requests were done properly. She even picked out the perfect tile for our master bathroom via e-mail messages and pictures.
I could go on and on about Sam. She was a wonderful Realtor to work with. We would recommend Samantha Soletti and Eanes Properties to anyone with confidence."
– Sam and Lillian Montoya, San Diego CA
"I have so many wonderful things to say about Samantha Soletti from Eanes Properties, I hope I can do it without writing a novel! I contacted another realtor about a year before I contacted Samantha. When I told the realtor what I wanted, I was told I could not get what I wanted where I wanted for the price I wanted. Eventually, I gave up looking for a house until a year later when I needed to move.
As a last resort, I contacted Samantha (another friend had been helped by her to purchase a house) and told her I needed a miracle. She returned my e-mail by calling me and e-mailing me immediately. She began the search for my miracle and she didn’t stop until I was satisfied. She is well informed and knowledgeable–most important, she cares about the people she helps and she tries her best to get them everything they want. She helped me by taking care of paperwork and explaining all the procedures in a way I could understand. She was always willing and able to deliver or pick up papers, help me fill out papers, make phone calls or answer questions. She was always looking out for my best interest and she walked me smoothly through what can be a very rough process."
"I have my miracle, and not only me; but she did the same for my 23 year old son who also purchased a home through her. Her help did not end with the purchase of my home. She still calls, still checks on us. I can call her and she still answers all my questions. She is not just a REALTOR®, she is a trusted friend."
– Elaine Carty, Austin TX
"If you are reading this page of testimonials, you’re probably in the same spot I was a few months ago: we needed to sell our house in a very soft market, and I didn’t have a clue how to get started or who to call. I wanted someone who specialized in homes in our neighborhood, so when I found www.bauerleranchagent.com and this page of testimonials, I was curious if Samantha Soletti was as good as all of her past clients said she was.
We needed to get as much equity from our home as possible but time was also of the essence as we wanted to sell and move over the summer in order to get our children in school in their new city. I requested a free current market value analysis and Sam responded right away with her professional opinion and the facts and figures to back it up. She came over to assess our property and gave us good, practical advice on making our house ready to sell. The flyers for our home were attractive and printed on sturdy paper. The virtual tour was professionally produced and more comprehensive than most of the tours I had seen on MLS for other homes. She also marketed our home with mailers and a “Talking House” as well as ads in local real estate publications.
Every question we had was answered promptly by e-mail or phone. Sam followed up with every realtor who showed our home for feedback. She exhibited excellent negotiating and communication skills. She was reassuring and ready to discuss strategy with us at any time. She handled all of the paperwork and communicated with the title company — all we had to do was show up at the closing. Sam made us feel as if we were her only clients. I cannot recommend her highly enough!"
– JoAnn & Paul Stringer, Austin TX
"My family and I moved to Austin, from Maryland, never having stepped foot in the city. I could never have imagined my home buying process would have been so smooth and stress free. Not only did Samantha show me MANY, MANY houses (I had no idea what I wanted), she provided me with an abundance of much needed research on schools, communities and general information about the area. I have worked with many Realtors in the past but I had never experienced working with a Realtor who actually cared about me and my family like Sam has. A great big thanks to Sam, Ricki and Jim."
– Stephanie and Michael Barron, Baltimore MD
"Working with Samantha Soletti made buying my first home a positive experience. Her professionalism and honesty made me very confident that I found the perfect house for me. I have been extremely happy here in Bauerle Ranch and would highly recommend Samantha."
– Kristy Warrington, Austin TX
"Ricki Soletti marketed our home in Senna Hills when AMD transferred us to Germany. She prepared a beautiful color brochure, set up a “Talking House” transmitter and organized a REALTOR’s open house. We were impressed with the skill she demonstrated negotiating on our behalf when an offer was presented. Now that our assignment is coming to an end here, we are looking forward to returning to Austin. We had some anxiety as to where we would live when we returned until Ricki discovered an exclusive, new subdivision in Sunset Valley that was perfect for us. Sunset Valley Meadows offered large lots, low property taxes and a great south central Austin location. Our Drees Custom Home will be ready to move in when we return. We have nothing but good things to say about our dealings with Eanes Properties and Ricki Soletti."
– John and Cheryl Gieske, Austin TX
"We started the home buying process on our own -thinking we could do it without a Realtor. When we soon found ourselves overwhelmed with the whole process a friend of ours, who had worked with Samantha Soletti as her Realtor, contacted Samantha to ask some questions for us. It was after talking with Samantha that we decided we had gotten in over our heads and needed some help. Samantha was wonderful to work with. She went out of her way to find answers to our questions and help us feel the most comfortable with our first home buying experience. Working with Samantha felt like working with a friend who we could trust and who we knew had our best interest in mind. She made it possible for us to have the beautiful home we have today. We will recommend her to all our friends."
– Rod and Rachel Soto, Austin TX
"Thanks so much to Samantha Soletti of Eanes Properties for helping me find and purchase the perfect home. In a day and age where people’s time is precious, it’s nice to know there are people like Sam who look out for their clients the way she did for me. She made me feel like finding my home was her number one priority. I couldn’t have done it without her. I would recommend Samantha Soletti and Eanes Properties to anyone wanting to find and buy a home."
– Evan Butcher, Austin TX
"My family really likes Austin a lot. I bought an investment property there and my mother ended up relocating to Austin from San Diego. Working with Samantha made this process really easy for us–and even enjoyable! Her knowledge of the Austin and surrounding areas, experience with both resale homes and community builders, and her patience and attention to detail made it easy for us to narrow down what we were looking for and to find the right properties. When there were delays with the sale of my mother’s San Diego home, Samantha renegotiated with the builder and kept in constant communication with them, my mother, and myself until we were in the clear. With her father, Jim, managing my property and Samantha making sure my mother is getting settled, we’re in good hands with the Solettis!"
– Charlie Chung, Chicago IL
"I cannot express enough how grateful I am for all the work you have done for us. Half of it really wasn’t your job, but you went over and beyond and because of that, it totally blessed Juan and me with a big, beautiful house…better than we had imagined. Thank you for helping make our dreams come true."
– Amanda and Juan Alvarez, Austin TX
"I have used Samantha in three different transactions and she has always been great!"
– Tony Ragan, Austin TX
"Working with Sam Soletti at Eanes Properties made our first experience buying a house simple. She was on top of the details and was always flexible with her schedule to fit ours. She was able to answer our questions and concerns without difficulty. We were very pleased with her work and we recommend her to all our friends and family."
– Matthew and Jessica Blanchard, Austin TX
"Working with Samantha Soletti at Eanes Properties made home buying a great experience for us. She was so personable and made an otherwise intimidating process so inviting for us. There was a variety of different houses on the market, and we couldn’t decide if we wanted a resale or a new home. She explored all of our different options with us and gave us all the information we needed to make the decision that was right for us. We couldn’t be happier than we are with our new home in Avery Ranch. We just want to say, Thanks!”
– Cliff & Brittany Painter, Austin TX
"Samantha Soletti has been my saving grace! She is a very knowledgeable and experienced professional with an outgoing demeanor. We were able to sell our house and close on the new home in a timely manner. That would not have been possible without Samanthas expertise. Thank you for going that extra mile and taking care of all of our needs."
– Linda Porras, Pflugerville TX
"Samantha has been great in the house hunt. She is patient and informative. She is the best!"
– Charles Henderson, Austin TX
"As first-time home buyers, we had no idea what we were getting into. Luckily, with Samantha’s help, we were able to find a great home in beautiful Bauerle Ranch, and we couldn’t be happier. Her experience was invaluable in helping us select our home and secure the financing. We have referred her to several of our friends who have also bought homes with Samantha, and every one of them had a great experience."
– Terry and Buffy Weaver, Austin TX
"We love YOUR Property Managment! Mike and Cindy have always done a great job. Their communication and professionalism are second to none!"
