I recently was going to put my home up for sale and Ernie and his brother Patrick were recommended to me by a friend. I really owe this friend for that recommendation. Ernie helped to educate me and ease any anxiety that comes with selling a home. They were understanding and were extremely knowledgeable on the market conditions and the process. I never thought it would be this easy and stress-free when it came to selling my home. If you're looking for someone to represent you for either buying or selling a home I can't say enough good things about Ernie and Patrick Hatton. My experience with them exceeded my expectations and would definitely call them again in the future for my real estate needs.

We have known Ernie for almost 10 years... And when it comes time to sell our house and buy a new one we did not have to think twice who we would have to be in charge of representing our interests. Ernie has got to be the most knowledgeable real estate person in the Austin market. We found working with him a joy and felt like he was there to help us during every step of the process. We can't say enough about Ernie's professionalism, true caring nature and extensive knowledge/connections. We would be very happy to give Ernie our highest recommendation for anyone desiring to sell their property or buy one.

Selling my house was way more stressful than buying, but Ernie kept us up to date about what was going on and what he was doing to help us get through this process.

Ernie is the BEST! Not only is he patient, he is persistent and kind. When we bought our new construction home back in 2013, we had such a hard time getting hold of our sales rep at the location, but Ernie got him to respond to our multiple calls and emails. Then when we were prepared to sell our home just before Thanksgiving of 2017, Ernie was right on top of everything. He got us top dollar for our home! Not only that, he sold it within 3 WEEKS of being on the market, during a holiday season! And not only THAT, he dealt with my brother's constant questions and my temper when I couldn't get the title company to respond to me. When the lenders who were financing the purchase of our home wouldn't respond, he kept on and on chasing them for that response. Ernie really was the biggest comfort to us during both our buying AND our selling experiences. His knowledge and patience really helped us through! We would recommend him without question ~ so much, that we asked him to help us twice!

We have already recommended Ernie and his team to friends and family. Because of his expertise and big heart, we sold quickly and successfully! His move up program was so very helpful in getting us into our DREAM HOME. Ernie is THE MAN for selling your home and finding the best fit for you new one.   We will always go to Ernie Hatton for our real estate needs.

About 4-5 years ago I was referred to Ernie. I was a new home buyer and had no clue what I was doing or even what to expect. Ernie was amazing about communication and continued to update my wife and me throughout the entire process. As of today, I have referred a handful of friends, my parents, who moved here from California, and I am currently buying a second home while listing my current one with Ernie. I highly recommend him to anyone looking for a real estate professional who knows how to get the job done.

If you want to sell a house, Ernie Hatton is the man to hire - especially if there are lots of complications.  I had two very large, very valuable lots in Central Austin.  But there was a complication - a large, old house sits on both lots, in need of much repair and remodeling.  The lots were full   of "heritage trees".  Potential buyers (some looking to develop, others looking to live on the property) were frightened by the prospect that the City would not allow them to make the required demolitions and modifications.  Ernie also had to deal with four sibling co-owners.   Ernie negotiated patiently with a number of prospective purchasers.  Ernie found the perfect buyers, and zeroed in on them immediately.  He brought the transaction to a successful closing.  With Ernie's help we fully explored what we could obtain for our property, obtained a number of offers to pursue, and accepted the best offer that came our way.  I am fully satisfied that the offer that Ernie brought to us was an excellent offer, and far superior to the others that had been made.  I cannot stress enough that Ernie is very astute and knows how to deal with people - including all the sibling co-owners, and prospective purchasers and their realtors.  He knows how to bring a deal to a successful closing.  Particularly in a complicated situation like ours, this expertise is critical - it makes the difference between a successful, full value sale, and something much less or no sale at all.  On top of it all, Ernie is great to deal with.  He's down to earth, respectful, and patient.  He makes an effort to understand where you are coming from and to accommodate you in every way.  I told Ernie that he is more like a brother to me than a realtor, and I meant that.  I can't give him any more higher praise than that.  Ernie had been recommended to me by my brother.  Ernie sold my brother's property for more than the asking price.  He got six offers for his property in two days, asked the buyers to improve their offers, and my brother was able to pick the best offer.  GO WITH ERNIE !!

I highly recommend working with Ernie Hatton for purchasing/selling your home. My wife and I were first time buyers and sellers and Ernie stepped us through the entire process.  From our initial meeting to today, Ernie has always been just a phone call away to answer any questions we have had and has been available to assist us with the construction of our new house.  Our house sold for over what we expected, and there were some special circumstances (house was gifted) that Ernie was able to guide us through.  Ernie is top notch.

I cannot recommend working with Ernie Hatton enough!  Having never gone through the process of selling a house before, Ernie and his team were able to guide us through every step along the way.  Ernie had an enormous amount of resources for us to use.  He not only provided the best pricing information for our area, but he also provided the best means for us to present our house and make it look as good as possible for the market.  And full disclosure here, if I had made a checklist of everything that Ernie had promised we would accomplish along the way, he would have hit 100% of our objectives.  From finding the best listing time to setting the right asking price, even all the way down to how to deal with other agents along the way - Ernie always had the best answer as a result of his vast experience in the Austin market. He never once steered us wrong, while simultaneously instilling the utmost confidence at every point in the process.  Working with Ernie felt like we not only had the best realtor for the job but the most trusted friend along for the ride.  Selling our house was absolutely stressful given the pace and timeframe we needed to move in Austin, but Ernie was able to help make the experience one of the best we could have ever asked for.  For that, we are forever grateful!  So when it comes to the big choice of who to get to represent you and your family, do not hesitate - Get Ernie and his team on your side and know you have the best in the business!

Ernie sold our house for more than what we expected.  He told us on our initial conversation what he can list it for and everything that he will do to market our house effectively and he did exactly just that. He told us that he will have numerous offers within seven days of listing and when we received the offers, he gave us his honest opinion about them.             During the whole process, he stayed in contact with us and answered our questions.  He did not overwhelm us with unnecessary details and made the whole process easier for us. We closed the sale earlier than scheduled.            We highly recommend Ernie Hatton to anyone interested in buying or selling a home. He will make the whole process easy for you and will negotiate the best results.

Ernie is just wonderful! I simply cannot say enough about how positive our experience was with Ernie. Incredibly knowledgable, patient, easy to talk to and genuinely interested in helping us find the right home and land. We always felt at ease with Ernie. He went out of his way to assist us throughout the entire buying process and never made us feel pressured to make a decision – that was incredibly important to me as I was very unsure of what to do. He understands the market well and helped us secure the right land position at a time when it’s been so challenging for so many. I can truly say that Ernie was not just a realtor, but a friend. Others would be wise to contact Ernie. I promise you won’t be disappointed.

My husband and I cannot recommend working with Ernie Hatton enough. Having never sold a house before, Ernie and his team guided us through every step of the process and ensured we had ample resources to be successful with the sale. Not only did he provide the best pricing for our area, but he provided the best means for us to present our house in a very competitive market. From finding the best listing time, setting the right asking price, scheduling a stager and photographer, down to navigating conversations with other agents, Ernie never steered us wrong. Selling our house, especially at the pace and time frame we needed to move, was stressful enough. We needed an agent we could trust and have full confidence in. Ernie not only drove the process as a knowledgeable and pro-active realtor but as a trusted friend along for the ride. For that, we are forever grateful! So when it comes to the big choice of who to get to represent you and your family, do not hesitate – get Ernie and his team on your side and know you have the best in the business!

Our first time home buying experience was awesome. My girlfriend and I both work for startups downtown and were looking for a new home close to work without having to spend a fortune. Ernie helped us find the perfect house at the perfect price. He was very educational and the process went a lot smoother than we expected. He advocated for us the entire time. We even had to close unexpectedly out of state and Ernie helped facilitate with the closing and notary. I've now referred a few friends & coworkers to Ernie over the last couple years and without a doubt will work with him on our next purchase.
Jason Darancou
Ernie and Patrick Hatton are amazing to work with and they helped me with a flip property which I got an unbelievable deal on the buy and set a record in the neighborhood when I sold. If you need any real estate needs, reach out to Ernie and his team. They will take great care of you!!

As a first time buyer, I was nervous and was not sure how the process worked. Ernie walked me through it and was extremely knowledgeable. He made me feel like family. I was recommended by a coworker and I recommend him now!!! Trust him and he will deliver!!

Ernie set a record in our neighborhood in Kyle and sold it in less than at the amount of time he said he could. Also, his unique marketing tools created a ton of interest. Awesome service and incredibly honest Real Estate Agent that won't try and take a ton of fees.
