Sean Little listed and sold two duplexes for my wife and I at 1708 & 1710 and 1712 & 1714 Shag Bark Trail in North Austin this past July and September 2011. We interviewed several individuals and companies and decided on Sean and Deborah Little and company. After a mutual agreement on listing price, Sean and his group went to work aggressively marketing first 1708 and finally 1712 Shag Bark Trail. He kept me informed throughout the sales process. Sean’s wife, Deborah, also a licensed realtor, took care of many details that arose during the marketing process. Sean and his team worked to make sure the property was properly exposed for potential buyers. Sean was able to achieve the highest priced sold values in MLS areas 2N and N for the past two years on these two duplexes. Sean and his team achieved both sales within 17 days of our signed listing, exceeding our expectations. He helped us to assess the merits of one contract over another; as, we had two offers at once on 1708 & 1710 Shag Bark. I would recommend Sean Little and his team to list and sell real estate for me or someone I know in the future.

In addition to assisting us during a very difficult time, Sean helped us through the purchase of 2 new properties in Cedar Park. As a business owner, I have very little time for activities outside the daily demands of running my company and I am thankful to have found someone to handle these transactions for my wife and me.

Should anyone have any questions regarding my dealings with the Little's, please feel free to give me a call.

Thank you,

Larry Payne


Thanks a heap for helping me sell my duplex at 2211 Lanier Dr.  You told me exactly what I would need to do to get property sold, and I got an offer for full price within a week of listing. Even with unforeseen complications that arose, you helped me navigate through them and property was sold in short order.

Thanks again for your help and your expert advice.

Sean has been a wonderful agent to work with – when other agents were pessimistic about the value we could expect for our property, Sean was confident he could work with what we had.  Early in the process, Sean was willing to advise us on tenant screening and management practices to ensure we would position our duplex properly within the market.  He and his team were aggressive in marketing our property, and in helping guide us through the negotiating process.  We would not hesitate to recommend Sean & his team to anyone who is seeking a knowledgeable, aggressive, and savvy agent to represent them in the sales process.

When I told you we would represent ourselves you probably worried. But we meant it. You have been great and certainly helped us pull it off. Larry has also been wonderful. If only all business deals could be handled by such professionals!

This morning I want to take a moment to thank you both for your tireless effort in selling my five four-plexes in Georgetown and my rental property on Nixon Lane in Austin, Texas.  It was a tough real estate market, but you continued to persevere.  You promoted the properties, continuously showed them to prospective buyers, and worked together with me and my property manager.  In fact, you put me in touch with my excellent property manager who replaced my prior, ineffective manager.  You represented me professionally and enthusiastically, even when the marketplace was gloomy and depressed.  You offered suggestions on how to make the properties more appealing and salable, and volunteer to drive to the property, check out the situation and do everything you could to solve the problem.  During our escrows, you did not hesitate to personally arrange for the appraisers to have access and inspect the properties.

Please do not hesitate to use me as a referral for any prospective customers.  I would not hesitate to recommend your excellent services.

It is challenging enough to sell a house in today’s economy.  Try selling TWO!  Mr. Little, appropriately dubbed The Duplex King, his wife, Deborah, along with their staff went far above and beyond what a realtor is expected to do when I decided to put my duplex on the market. From arranging for a painter and other handyman services, to assisting with minor renovation projects, to (and most importantly) being extremely responsive to any issues, concerns or questions, the Little's made this process about as painless as it can be. Words cannot describe how grateful I am for all the above and beyond efforts you and your team put in during the sale of my duplex and that your undying optimism and genuine concern for me as an individual was much appreciated throughout the whole process.

I appreciate your efforts and will be contacting you again when the need arises.

Thank you.

The Sean Little Team has demonstrated remarkable ability in serving our needs.  Twice now we have relied on them to market our investment properties.  Sean and his team moved our properties quickly and for top dollar.

We intend to use Sean for all our Austin area investments, from listing, to selling and to securing tenants.

I wanted to send you for a quick email and let you know how much I appreciated the hard work and professionalism on the handling of my recent sale of the duplex on Dolphin Drive.  I received above market rate and that, of course, was much appreciated.

This was the second investment property I have sold through you and both have been flawless.  I have been and will continue to recommend your excellent services to all of my family and friends.  so this is a big Thank You to the "true Duplex-King of Austin, Texas".

Keep up the great work!

Just a few words to thank you for the good service you provided and the courtesy you exhibited with our tenants before, during and after the sale of our duplex on Piney Point.  We would recommend you anytime and would call on you again should the need arise.

Joe and Bonnie Henkel

Sean Little recently sold a duplex for us.  In the course of this sale, he:

  • Was one of the best prepared agents we have ever seen for our initial meeting.  He had comps, net sheets, and in information sheet with photo already done.
  • Was responsive to our goals and desires.
  • Was easy to reach, promptly returning phone calls even after business hours.
  • Got 5 offers within days of listing.
  • Got more for the duplex than the listing price.
  • Accomplished our desired quick sale (Only about a month from listing to closing).
  • We couldn't be more satisfied with his services as a real estate agent.

Sean Little was able to find a buyer within two weeks of listing our fourplex.  He was very professional throughout the whole process, always on top of every aspect from marketing to negotiations to closing escrow.  Our sale required some creativity which Sean which Sean provided with ease.  We placed a special high value on Sean's informative and timely responses.  We give Sean a "two thumbs up" recommendation.

Dear Ms. Bartlett (Austin Lone Star Realty' NW Market Center Sales Manager)

This is a note to highly recommend Sean Little as a real estate agent of choice for your prospective clients.

Under very unusual circumstances, Sean inherited another KW agents' deal.   With diligence and determination, my duplex sold to a qualified buyer in May 2005 at a price higher than the first buyer's offer.   Sean kept me informed of the status of the negotiations, worked with me outside of normal business hours and had lots of factual information for me to make an informed decision about the sale.

One couldn't ask for a more conscientious upfront, tenacious real estate agent.  Your are fortunate to have Sean on your team.

Patricia Smethers

Wow!  Not even two weeks, no MLS and you've got a solid offer... Maybe I should have you do an analysis of my place at Fleetwood too...

Scott Mittman

Thank you so much for the help you gave on the sale of my property in Austin.  You gave very accurate advice on pricing and marketing my home and duplex.  I deeply appreciate the fact that I could reach you on your phone without a wait.  I will recommend you to all my friends and family and anyone who needs a realtor.

Pam Malone

I want to thank you for your efforts in the purchase of 10403 Burmaster.  Your hard work and persistence made it possible for all parties to come together and overcome the difficulties of this out-of-state purchase.

The finding of a cleaning service, insurance company, management services, etc. are good examples of your assistance and the value you brought to this deal.  I am looking forward to working with you in the near future for the purchase of my family home in Austin.

Arasb Rhamani

I just want to thank you for making the sale of my duplex so smooth and problem-free.

I'm not experienced in real estate, and I had some fears that it would take a long time to find a buyer and there would be many problems along the way.  You found a buyer in a short time, and you smoothly handled all the details that could have been burdensome for me.

You negotiated effectively in my behalf, and I especially appreciated that you found contractors to do the repairs required by the inspection and go them done while I was on vacation prior to the closing.

As I expressed to you in person, I find it particularly desirable to do business with those who I consider to be "nice people."  You are definitely in that category.

Mickey Michaels

Sean Little did an excellent job as our real estate agent to sell our duplex in Round Rock Texas.  He sold our duplex for us in a good time frame and we got the price we expected.  He helped us through the whole process smoothly and he is a knowledgeable, intelligent, caring, patient, punctual real estate agent.  Sean Little explains things very well and returns phone calls promptly.

We were very pleased.

Joyce Zook

We were extremely pleased with the excellent service you provided in completing our real estate transactions.  Since we are out of state, we had concerns that there might be problems.  Our concerns were never realized!  You kept in close communication and were always accessible.  All the details that we could not take care of, on our own, you addressed.  Honesty and integrity were maintained throughout.

Thank you for going the extra mile for us!
