As a licensed REALTOR®, I chose not to sell my Barton Place condo, as Audra has substantially more experience & knowledge of the condo market. She valued my condo over $15k higher than my appraisal. As I knew she doesn’t overprice to get listings, I gave her a shot. The condo sold at full price; thus, I actually netted more money by using Audra instead of selling myself! That’s a bold statement. Photographs and her staging were perfect. Because most condos are small, relative to homes, photographs & staging are more crucial for immediate marketing impact. A++
As a repeat client, I can testify that Audra never fails to exceed all expectations and her guidance is unparalleled. We found our dream home mid-march, so the race was on to list our current house and make our May closing date. Who knew we were about to face a pandemic and citywide lockdown during this time! Audra made the whole process a breeze, receiving 8 offers on opening weekend. I cannot say enough about her level of professionalism and attention to detail. She responded to my perpetual questions and concerns with calming reassurance and expertise. If you are thinking about buying or selling, it has to be with Audra!
Audra is the perfect combination of business professional, friend, and market expert. She lead us through selling our beloved Spring Condo. Our two goals were to set and get a great price and to navigate a timeline so that we always had a place to stay while we sold our family home in North Texas, and built a new home in Georgetown. Not only did she succeed but we set a record sale price, at Spring, for a 1 bedroom unit. Great way to finish a downtown Austin dream…realtor happy, customer happy, new owner happy, and giving our condo neighbors a great appraisal sale price. SHE DID IT!
Working with Audra and her team made the otherwise stressful process of home-buying an absolute breeze. Audra is a consummate professional. Her knowledge and expertise shone through at every turn. Audra is an expert negotiator, and I have no doubt that, solely thanks to her, I procured the best possible deal on my property.
Whether looking to buy or sell, Audra is easily the best representative and ally I’ve ever had the pleasure of working with in real estate. I would implore anyone dipping their toes in the market to partner with Audra and her group. I’m certain, much like mine were, your expectations will be far exceeded.
Audra was recommended by some friends that bought their dream home with Audra’s help. We were looking for lease options and Audra was immediately helpful in sharing options that met our requirements. Audra was super responsive throughout the process of finding a home to lease. She was flexible with our availability to view homes. When viewing potential properties, she let us have our space to take everything in with zero pressure. Audra’s professionalism and expertise in the Austin real estate market was extremely helpful and helped us negotiate to save money. All in all, she was an absolute pleasure to work with. We wouldn’t hesitate to work with Audra again for any real estate needs and we’ll recommend her to all our friends and coworkers!
Audra is a top notch, very personal, professional who is skilled in the art of diplomacy and the management of issues, negotiations, and exchanges involved in real estate transactions. She is very adept in handling selling and buying in way that leaves you with confidence that after the dust has settled, the best possible result was achieved. I have been involved with Audra on two separate transactions now. She acted timely, always responsive, and gave solid advice. Beyond that, I feel her strong grounding in the community offers good connections. Her number is saved to my contacts for the future!
We began a search for a condo in our efforts to downsize and simplify. We fell in love with the Barton Place community and its location. Audra partnered with us in our search and made us aware of available condos immediately! Due to her diligence, we did not have to wait long for the perfect place! We have bought and sold homes several times in the past, but we have never experienced such a high caliber Realtor! Audra listened to our needs and her timely communication always kept us well informed in every aspect of the process, from searching and negotiating to buying and closing!
It just doesn’t get any better!

Audra was wonderful to work with on the sale of my home. I was living in New York City, selling my Austin home, and Audra helped make the process seamless for me. She started by finding the tenant that would live in my home until I sold it, to then finding a ready, willing and able buyer in a timely fashion. Audra is very responsive, professional, and does not complicate things. She was a pleasure to work with, and I highly recommend her to anyone looking to sell, rent, or buy a home in Austin.
Audra Smith is the consummate professional. She is knowledgeable, helpful without being pushy, and expert on all aspects of real estate transactions. I’ve never encountered anyone better at what she does.

Audra was recommended to us by a coworker that had worked with her previously. We were moving from Colorado and Audra was amazing! We came into town and allotted four days to find a house to put a contract in on. We were understandably anxious as we didn’t know if we would be able to find a house that was right for us in such a short amount of time. By the end of the first day with Audra, we had a house under contract! Audra was an exceptional real estate agent and if we decide to move in the future, we plan on using her again!
Matt & Jenn Steffenson
Audra was great and was hands-down the best realtor we’ve worked with in buying and selling a home. Our recent transaction was pretty layered, chock full o’ contingencies and variables on all sides. She worked with us to get the deal done, satisfy all parties, and provided a great level of service along the way. Most importantly, she kept us informed and followed through on all of the details. We definitely recommend Audra for anyone considering a new home.

Audra Smith is absolutely fabulous to work with. In March, I decided I was ready to buy my first home and I had some hard and fast specifics about the style, size, and location of the property I was hoping to find. It was obvious that she listened to every single detail because, only one month later, I signed the papers on my dream condo. It is undoubtedly my favorite place in Austin and it’s all mine! Audra’s attention to detail, professionalism, and ability to keep the challenging process of closing on a home moving forward is remarkable. I have recommended her to numerous friends and she will forever be my go-to gal for real estate in Austin.
I’ve had a working relationship with Audra for some years now; particularly at BartonPlace condominiums, though in other contexts as well. Audra is exquisitely talented, ethical, smart, and committed to her profession as well as the people (both sides of a transaction) with whom she works.
Whether in sales or leasing, she does something I’ve looked for and found lacking in my previous Realtor relationships – she listens, is timely and very responsible. I highly recommend you consider her for your sales/buying/leasing needs.
I just wanted to say, I sure am lucky to have found Audra, and “thank you.”

We recently engaged Audra Smith to sell our condominium at Barton Place. The experience could not have gone more smoothly. Audra did exactly what she said she would do. She moved quickly to arrange photos, then she set up a pre-MLS tour. The tour resulted in 3 offers, each above our asking price, before the unit went on MLS. She got us a terrific price and got us to closing quickly. And she handled all the logistical details. We simply had to move our furniture out. We would not hesitate to recommend Audra. It was great working with her.
Bill and Susan Banowsky
Many thanks for the truly tremendous job you did for us on this transaction; we couldn’t have asked for anything more. We’ll certainly be referring friends to you — and perhaps we’ll have occasion to work with you again ourselves (as we continue to build out our Austin real estate empire)! You were outstanding and we’re grateful! Once again, it was a pleasure working with one of the very best in Austin real estate. Count us fans — and friends!
Audra helps us buy our snowbirding condo in Barton Place in 2012 and made the long-distance process virtually pain-free. In addition to doing a wonderful job giving us a feel for the units available and the BP vibe, she put us in touch with the right people to keep the deal on track. I would work with her again in a heartbeat.
Paul & Pat Sackett
Audra Smith recently worked as our agent in selling our unit in BartonPlace and purchasing our current home in Lakeway. We faced a number of challenges because of contingencies on our selling side plus finding a home with a seller willing to accept our contingencies.
Bottom line is that thru the relentless efforts and professional skills of Audra we were able to conclude our sale and purchase of another beautiful home. We are completely satisfied and happy with the results and thank Audra for her personal help.
John & Sue Gilbreath
Working with Audra was the best choice we could have made when we bought our first home. She helped us every step of the way while we navigated through unknown territory. She was patient with us and helped us sort out all of our concerns. Audra went above and beyond for us in so many ways. I can’t say enough good things. She really is the best!
Heather & Hugh Lewis
We had the pleasure of using Audra to sell our home. Audra is detail oriented, keeps you up-to-date with the ongoings of your property, and touches base frequently. She went above and beyond what was expected. Her expertise was so appreciated. Her suggestions regarding the staging of our home really made the difference in our open house. From start to finish, the selling process was smooth, which is all thanks to Audra. We couldn’t recommend her more.

I’m writing to express pleasure with Audra Smith, who helped us with our condominium purchase at Barton Place in Austin, TX. Audra was extremely helpful with all aspects of our purchase. I’m totally confident that she would be the perfect contact for anyone seeking a beautiful condominium in downtown Austin.
Audra is a detailed oriented sales person. She stands behind her promises and is tireless in her efforts to please the customer.
