Helped me buy home
The Hatchel's are truly a dynamic duo that made our home buying experience a walk in the park. Bob and Michaela are kind, honest, and adept with Austin realty. As first time home buyers, my husband and I were relieved to have experienced realtors. They were readily available to show homes and understood our individual needs. We couldn't have asked for better realtors.

My wife and I were first time home buyers. Bob and Michaela were so helpful to us. They went above and beyond what I expected realtors to do. They gave us excellent insight into the area and the local market. Our buying experience in this crazy market was made a lot easier by their effort and professionalism. Highly recommended.

Bob was such a great person to work with. It didn't feel like he was there to get a commission but instead it felt like he was a friend supporting me and trying to do what was best for me. There was no pressure from him but what I liked the most is that he is willing to work as fast or as slow as you need him to. If I needed to see a house that same day, he would work with me to be able to see it. When I needed a break he would slow down and just give me the time I needed. It isn't an easy process and there was a lot of restless nights but if there was something that I needed to know he would always take the time to call me back and give me the information. I thought I would be buying a starter home that I would be in for just a couple of years but instead he helped me find a home that I can see myself living for many years to come. Less ... More

Bob is fantastic to work with. We hired Bob to help us find a new house that met our extensive list of must haves. He did a great job of finding properties in our favorite neighborhoods and also suggested some we had not considered. He was very knowledgeable about the areas we checked out and gave us great advice about what places met our needs best. He was incredibly responsive and always managed to show us properties on short notice when we saw something pop up in the emails he sent us every day. Ultimately, we found the perfect home in Circle C and Bob helped us negotiate a really good deal in a very frothy market. Once we found our new home, we also hired Bob to sell our South Austin home. He knows exactly what you need to do to sell your home. He can honestly assess whether you need to do minor touch ups or projects that get you great offers on your house. He sold our house in a single weekend. I highly recommend Bob. He is honest and works hard to make the process of buying and selling a home smooth and successful. Less ... More

We love working with Bob! He really had a great understanding of what we wanted in a new house and guided us through the process with confidence and knowledge. We really appreciate all of Bob's hard work, positive attitude, and friendship during some stressful times!

Bob knows his stuff. He is calm and forthright, always with the client's best interest in mind. We sold my house for way more than we thought we could and I attribute that to Bob's advice on home improvements before putting it on the market and his ability to understand the market and the "game." I highly recommend Bob Hachtel.

My wife and I began househunting with Bob in winter 2011. Unfortunately, job circumstances immediately changed for my wife and we had to temporarily put it on the backburner. Bob was extremely understanding and patient with us during that time. Our incredibly positive experience with Bob during that time led us to resume working with him despite coworkers and colleagues also recommending numerous other realtors. Bob provided amazingly prompt and personable, yet professional, correspondence by phone, e-mail and in person. He not only recommended houses based on our likes / dislikes, but also got us into every house we wanted to tour on a moments notice. Bob's vast real estate experience and knowledge came in handy when narrowing down where we wanted to live. Because of Bob, we became much more educated and informed homebuyers. Not only have we already recommended him to friends and colleagues, we will contact him again in a heartbeat if we decide to move again. Less ... More

I bought my first condo in January. If it wasn't for Bob I probably would still be renting and unhappy. He listened to everything I wanted, location, price, deadlines ect. He made my experience not overwhelming but fun. He answered all my 100 questions and was available to me day, night, and weekends. I love where I live and I am so happy. Even now 3 months after we closed if I have a question he is there. Bob knows so much and I highly recommend him!!

When we made the decision to build a home, as first time buyers we didn't think we needed a realtor throught the process. Both my wife and I knew what we wanted as far as floor plan, pricing, upgrades, design, selections etc.. Little did we know that an expert advise was what would be the driving force throughout the decision process. We found 'Bob' Hachtel based on ratings and his expertise in the field. At first, I was not so sure about going with someone we didn't know as we knew a lot of realtors and also had some in our family. But Robert was always pleasant to deal with and offered his advice, suggestions and what he thought was best done in a certain situation. He brought sound expertise in the field having worked as a mortgage officer as well as someone who connected with strangers rather easily. This is very important as a first time home buyer especially when dealing with the build, loans, closing etc. He was also available on his phone at all times even when we were as buyers facing decision challenges. As always buyers face unexpected challenges around the closing process and Robert was with us all the way assuring and even standing up on our behalf when the closing was delayed due to a 3rd party audit and we were out of the apartment with a 9 month old. Thank You Bob for your role in making our home buying process a pleasant one even through unseen challenges. You will have our recommendation to friends and family who will do the same. Wishing you all the best! Less ... More

I had a great experience with Bob. He was dedicated to making my search a successful one and I truly appreciate all the time and attention that was dedicated to my search and the process of finding a house. I definitely recommend Bob as an agent and as someone who will help you through each step of the process and find and assemble the right team to do the same.

Bob listens, is very intelligent, and conscientious. He has the best interest of his clients in mind. We chose him to represent us as the buyer, after we met him through a seller representation that he was working on. I think he does great work on both sides and does it with integrity.

My husband and I had a wonderful time buying our first home with Bob. He was extremely knowledgeable about the area and gave us some great advice on how to approach home buying. He also never made us feel pressured and was always quick to respond whenever we had questions or concerns. We had a great experience with him and will definitely be recommending him to our friends.

Can't recommend Bob enough. This was my third real estate transaction, so I know what a good realtor, and a bad realtor look and act like. He definitely falls in the first category. Thorough, responsive and on the ball. After hearing what we were looking for, didn't waste our time with properties that didn't match our criteria, and once we found the one we wanted, actually helped in bringing the price down, and pointed out some negotiating points. So again, highly, highly recommended. Less ... More

Bob is Awesome. When we met with him 2yrs ago, we thought we were ready but let's just say we weren't. He checked in on us thru those yrs, which I thought was Great and very unexpected. When we were finally ready, he took us around and showed us what is now our "Dream Home". Bob was always there to answer our questions, give us advice and gave us some really awesome Referrals. We thought this process was going to be stressful but it was so smooth and easy. If you are looking to have an Enjoyable Buying Experience.....just call Bob! Less ... More

Bob helped us not only find our house, but lease the one we were already in. We weren't sure we'd be able to do it, but his knowledge gave us the confidence to take advantage of the market and get into a great house. All the while keeping our other home as an investment. Well done Bob!

We LOVE Bob! He's solidly professional, yet incredibly personable. You do not want to go through the roller-coaster-like processes of home-buying and/or selling with someone you don't enjoy being around and Bob is someone you'll really like working with. We originally found Bob on Zillow and don't feel that we could have possibly found a better Realtor for us. He helped us find a house very quickly and, thanks to his work for us, our old house sold in two days on the market! We could not be happier about how everything went and especially about our decision to work with Bob. Less ... More

We had a great experience working with Bob! We wanted to sell our home and purchase another in the area, but weren't sure where to begin so we called Bob and he quickly proved to be a true partner during the sale. He met with us to understand our goals and explained the process each step of the way. His knowledge of the Austin market was spot on with helping us sell our home at a premium within 10 days, then again to help us find the perfect home! Bob is an excellent realtor who knows this market inside-out. If you need a true partner to help buy or sell a home, look no further than Bob Hachtel! Less ... More

There are Realtors. And then there are people like Robert Hachtel. It was our first home and we were pretty picky on what we wanted. We didn't want the typical white walls and boxy layout. We wanted unique features and an open feel to the house, but without spending a fortune and in a safe neighborhood. Robert (or Bob as we call him), was so patient and listened to everything we wanted. And the home he found for us far exceeded what we thought possible. It's the home we'll raise our family in, and it could not be more perfect for us. Even after a year we still wake up every morning giddy, as we walk through our house. Thank you Bob, for making our first home buying experience so amazing. Really can't thank you enough. Less ... More

I've never had to deal with an agent and he was recommended to me by my sister that bought a brand new house through him. He was very good and patient with us. Had some very good advise and was real helpful in what we needed to get done on selling our house. I would recommend him to all my friends and family.

We weren't sure if we could sell our house. Bob came over told us not to worry, he would have our house sold and in a new house in 60 days. At first we thought that was a bold statement in this economy. Well 45 days later house was sold and were getting ready to move into our new house. Bob made it happen! It was an easy and smooth transition thanks to Bob.

Robert helped me and my husband sell our home and purchase a new one two years ago after the bottom fell out of the market. It was an extremely stressful time to try and sell a house, and I am very thankful we had Bob there to help us. I'm convinced we wouldn't have had the positive experience we had without him. When looking for our new home, he showed us properties in an area we hadn't considered looking at before, and because he did, we now live in an area that is the perfect fit for us. He will be our lifelong realtor. Less ... More

Bob is great! My husband and I decided to sell our 1st home and purchase a larger one for our growing family. We called Bob and in ONE WEEK had our house listed and SOLD! He then helped us buy our second home - the house we've always wanted! He walked us through the lending process, each step of the way and made sure we were taken care of. Bob is an excellent realtor and knows the market. I highly recommend using his services the next time you're looking to sell or buy!

Bob helped my purchase my house in South Austin back in 2007. Prior to working with Bob, I was getting very frustrated with the lack of attention from other agents. Once I started working with Bob, the process was much more pleasant. I had my questions answered immediately and he was very flexible on showing properties. He made me feel comfortable and confident in the buying process.

Bob had alot of patience with us. We looked at over 50 homes whenever we called Bob he made time for us. He always answered our questions and he drove everywhere for us! From way south Austin to way east. When we finally found a home 25 miles away from where we originally started he drove out at least 10 times while we were under contract. Bob is the only realtor for us!

Bob is a straight forward agent with great knowledge. I bought my first home with Bob and I am certain I will buy another home with him. As a first time home buyer Bob was able to walk me through the process of how things work in a language I could understand. Even after the sale of the house if I had a question he was always there to help. Bob is an exceptional agent and I recommend him to everyone I know and will continue to do so.
