We had the pleasure of working with Angelle Hall on purchasing our first home and we couldn't be happier with the result. My fiancee and I found our dream home and Angelle was instrumental in turning this dream into reality. It's a tough market to navigate and having an advocate like Angelle was the "ace" up our sleeve.

She was attentive to all our questions, no matter how mundane. She had a real gift for distilling complex concepts into understandable notions.

From the beginning, she outlined a clear path on how we need to go about the process and she kept a keen eye from search to closing. When finding prospective properties, she was quick to gather all available information and was always open to viewing the properties promptly. She was even able to find information on properties before they hit MLS, a big plus. Due to her efficient qualities, we were one of the first people to view the house we purchased and we were the first to get our offer in. Her continued care and work with the seller's agent helped to create a seamless bridge while strongly advocating for our needs.

We truly hope that all who search for a home are able to find a place as lovely as the one we found. Having an agent such as Angelle is all a buyer could ever ask for. To top it off, her house warming gifts were simply splendid and we will be ever grateful for her hard work and attentive care.

We recently worked with the Green Mango Real Estate team and Angelle Hall represented us in the sale of two houses. Angelle was very knowledgeable and professional, while also being super friendly and made us feel welcome with her Texas charm! She proved to be an awesome representative, one I would want on my team anytime I am involved a real estate transaction. She is modest about her skills, and when the time came she was a "master negotiator" and represented our best interests while achieving the results we desired.

Angelle went above and beyond in the assessment of our home prior to the sale, and didn't stop there - she worked each and every milestone of the transaction and left no 'i' undotted and no 't' uncrossed. She ensured we were in compliance during each step, even if it was a little extra work for her. She also helped to manage the other parties involved in the transaction and her network of industry professionals proved to be a great value from the initial home repairs through to the closing of the home. The experience was great and I felt like I could sleep better at night because I knew that Angelle had everything taken care of. I highly recommend her!

Carrie Bills and the Green Mango Real Estate team are terrific!

Carrie represented the seller when I bought my home in Travis Heights in 1997. She was instrumental in helping us manage a challenging seller and made the overall transaction easy. Carrie welcomed me to the neighborhood and gladly provided expert advice and guidance. She easily gained my trust and friendship!

I called Carrie when I started thinking about selling my home in Travis Heights in 2014. She and the Green Mango Real Estate team provided valuable advice, leadership through the entire process, and incredible flexibility and creativity as they dealt not only with my work and travel schedule but also a remote buyer.

It's been a pleasure working with Carrie and the Green Mango Real Estate team. I'm looking forward to working with them again and highly recommend them!

We had a lot for sale in Travis Heights and Carrie Bills was our listing agent. She did a fantastic job by keeping a very positive attitude throughout the process, even when I started to lose heart because the lot did not sell as quickly as we thought it would. Carrie has an extensive knowledge of the Austin market, especially Travis Heights. I was thankful to have such an experienced agent on our side. We were very pleased with the outcome. My husband and I have bought and sold many houses over the years and I wish all the real estate agents we used had been as positive and knowledgeable as Carrie.

If you are looking to buy or sell in central Austin I can't recommend Green Mango enough. My wife and I have worked with Green Mango four times now. Carrie Bills in particular has a true gift. She can handle any situation thrown at her with ease. When were looking to buy our current home she knew of great properties that were not on the market yet - giving us a great advantage in this fast-paced Austin market and allowing us to close on our dream home!

Carrie and her team work hard to make sure you are taken care of as a client from start to finish. She's the real thing: down to earth, honest, seasoned and professional. Carrie is the one to call on to get the deal done! You'll love her calm-in-a-crisis demeanor and her humor - Carrie is professional but you can also call her a friend. We loved working with Green Mango realty and you will too!

Carrie is a superhero! She helped us every step of the way during our house sale. She helped us get a great, fair price and made the selling process as stress-free as possible. We had millions of questions and worries, and she patiently dealt with every single one of them. We also appreciated how she constantly kept us informed about what would be happening throughout the process in order to avoid unpleasant surprises. My husband and I unreservedly recommend Carrie!

Buying or selling a home? Go straight to Green Mango Real Estate, and you'll feel free GREAT about your decision.

The Green Mango team is knowledgeable, friendly and completely inside the Austin real estate scene. All the ladies are wonderful to work with. Carrie Bills, worked personally with us while buying our first home, and it could not have more enjoyable. Carrie started by taking the time to meet in person and learn what we wanted. She took us to visit homes and at each gave sage advice on potential ups and downs while giving us enough space to get a take on each property. She kept us completely within our budget. She handled all the paperwork and transitions with grace! Most importantly, she was kind to us throughout the entire process and after.

Stephanie, continued the Green Mango teamwork with us. I appreciate that she would make time after traditional work hours to help us. Green Mango certainly is there whenever you need them!

I would give 100 stars if YELP allowed to Green Mango.

Carrie Bills is amazing. Basically, she predicted everything that would happen for our house. It sold within 3 days, with multiple offers (although the offers started coming the day the house was available for showing). Although we were sad to sell our house, Carrie made the process as seamless as possible. Everything was smooth sailing. She is a master of this industry, has been doing it forever, is kind, a straight shooter, and does not play games. She just takes care of business.

Cannot say enough about this awesome lady. She surrounds herself with the nicest, most competent people! I thought that Angelle, and her photographer were also top notch.

You definitely want her for your real estate needs.

We decided to hire Carrie at Green Mango Real Estate based on her reputation in Austin. Our own due diligence had uncovered to us, that Carrie has been involved in some of the most significant transactions in Travis Heights and 78704.

I am as ever, grateful to have made a new lifelong friend, as well as a real estate agent for the future. She had recently represented us on both the sale of our existing Travis Heights home, and she has done a tremendous job in the purchase of our new wonderful home in 78704!

She was well versed in every aspect of both the sell-side of our existing 1960's Mid-Century home where she helped us to capture a top market rate with a lovely new family; and she has negotiated substantial upgrades in our new home.

And perhaps most importantly, we have built a solid foundation of trust, respect and friendship - We dearly miss our almost daily contact with Carrie, she was always there to answer my questions, calm my fears, and to always look ahead with optimism that we will be able to sell our home for its market value. My wife and I both understand that the one true constant in hiring a good real estate representative is experience.

We are forever grateful for her guidance, her time, and her friendship

I've known Carrie Bills (owner) since 1994 - yes, 20 YEARS!  She has been involved in my 3 house sales and 2 home purchases in Austin.   I cannot say enough positive things about her professionalism and knowledge when it comes to Austin and surrounding area real estate.   On top of being a great Realtor, she is one of my favorite people.

Carrie came into the house we wanted to sell, looked around, and informed us of the recommended pricing and strategy - of course they showed up with area comps....but the price was set based on the comps AND her knowledge of the Austin market.  

So.....we showed our home for 1 day, received 3 offers and closed on a deal for a little more than we ask!   If anyone sells a house - you know how important it is to only have to show for a short period.

Carrie Bills is the most amazing real estate agent! She went above and beyond the call of duty to sell our house. There were 7 houses for sale on our street and she helped us make ours stand out. She held open houses and refreshed the flyer (not only refilling the box, but literally changing the flyer to keep people interested in looking!) and communicated with other agents. Our house is the only one that has sold on our street so far.

Not only is Carrie a super sharp agent, she is kind and caring and a rock of strong support. I can't say enough good things about Carrie and Green Mango Real Estate.

When we began making plans to relocate after my husband's retirement, we asked our neighbors in Travis Heights whom they would choose as a realtor. Carrie Bills was recommended across the board. Carrie is very personable, very professional, and very savvy. As she has lived in the neighborhood for many years, she is not only familiar with (and part of) the personality of Travis Heights, she also has a clear understanding of her clientele. With a gentle nudge here and there, Carrie and her associates had us in gear and our home beautifully presented. Our home was on the market only for a matter of hours, and we had a contract pending before we had the Open House. Delighted with Carrie and her staff, we hope to keep in touch with her across the miles.

We were first time home buyers and selected Carrie at Green Mango Real Estate as our agent after receiving a recommendation and reading reviews. This was the best decision we made. We immediately clicked with Carrie, and she took time to understand our needs and answer our (many) questions. It was obvious she was a pro.

Carrie immediately had homes for us to look at, and upon entering would quickly assess the house and any potential defects, which was nice because it was obvious she wasn't pushing us to buy something quick. In fact, in more than one house a few seconds after walking in she'd say "this isn't the one" before we'd even looked around! Due to Carrie's decades of experience, many of them in Austin, her ability to quickly and accurately assess a location, property, and structure was invaluable.

Carrie was always available to talk, and the whole Green Mango Real Estate team was extremely helpful as well. She was in close communication through the search, offer, contract, and closing phases, and did a great job negotiating on our behalf. I cannot recommend Carrie and Green Mango enough - their deep knowledge, professionalism, and genuine concern for their clients can't be beat.

And best of all, we got the exact house we wanted!

Carrie Bills has been my agent for four real estate transactions. Clearly, I like the way she does business.

Essentially, a real estate agent has two jobs. The first is to know the real estate market in her area intimately. Carrie has her finger on the pulse of Austin real estate like no one else I know. She understands all the intricacies of buying and selling houses, from setting a decent but reasonable price for a house one is selling to coming up with an appropriate bid on a house one is buying, to the thousand and one other issues that arise in the real estate market. For example, in the last house she sold for me (she had helped me buy the same house some five years earlier), Carrie knew not only what had to be done to make the house earn top dollar, but whom to call to make it happen. She then went on to host an open house and got three bids, all over asking price, that very day.

The second job that a realtor has is much more subtle than the business end, but equally important. A house is typically the largest investment a person has. But it isn’t an investment like a mutual fund, it’s also a home, the place where one lives. Buying or selling real estate, therefore, is a highly emotional endeavor. Although emotions are a good and necessary part of being human, they can get in the way of making rational business decisions. That’s when the great realtors, like Carrie, step in. Carrie is not only supremely savvy when it comes to the dollars and cents side of real estate, she is also a steady rock when it comes to the emotional roller coaster most buyers and sellers have to ride. She is cool, collected, and almost impossible to fluster. So, when the process of buying or selling a house encounters the inevitable glitch, and you’re feeling frustrated, exasperated, angry, etc., Carrie steps in with her calmness and wisdom and you can leave all those negative emotions behind and continue with the transaction.

Carrie knows real estate. And she is a compassionate and empathetic person. As long as I’m in Austin, I can’t imagine using another realtor.

I cannot recommend Carrie Bills at Green Mango Real Estate highly enough. My experience with her from start to finish was exemplary. I had talked to Carrie about buying a second home in Austin for quite a while. She was well informed about pricing in the downtown neighborhoods that I was interested in and seemed to get a feel very quickly for what I wanted and needed in a house. When a home in my price range became available, she suggested that I take a look at the house. While I initially wasn't sure that this was the place for me, I did a little research on my own and also was forced to think about what would work for me in Austin. The house was an older bungalow, a style that I really like, on a small lot, which is perfect for a second home but had a lot of issues. She was able to help me visualize what could be done to make the house livable and made it seem much less overwhelming. She knew the house well and had helped the owner make repairs that made the house sellable and took away a couple of the major obstacles that would have come up on inspection and been a pain for any future owner to deal with. After closing on the house, she arranged to have it cleaned and the carpeting removed which was an absolute necessity. She was professional and thorough throughout the entire process providing inspectors, mortgage agents and a great title company to facilitate the process. What also endeared me to her approach was the care and advocacy she exhibited for her client who was having a lot of issues. It was obvious this was more than just standard treatment as her kindness and concern for her client made me much more willing to work with some of the challenges that came up during the process. Since the purchase of the home, she has been available and helpful in providing me with answers to questions that I have regarding how to get started on the reno of the house. Without a doubt, when it comes time to sell, I will absolutely list my house with Carrie as she is a terrific broker and a kind and caring person. For a buyer and seller, you couldn't find better representation.

Carrie Bills is the epitome of a professional with a servant attitude. She is blessed with smarts, great communication skills and an empathetic nature that you just can't fake. She's the real deal. She went above and beyond the call in doing what it took to make our home stand out (and sell) in a very competitive market. No hesitation in recommending Carrie and Green Mango to anyone in need of professional, caring representation!

Man, did we get lucky meeting Carrie. She is not your cookie cutter, pushy agent who doesn't take the time to know what her client wants. Carrie tunes into your style, wants, needs and budget. She's honest, straightforward and gives you her honest opinion about the houses she shows you.

We decided to buy a house in Austin a couple of years ago and began to look online to see what was available. We checked out several agents before we found Carrie and felt a great fit. She "got" what we were looking for in a house. On our next trip to Austin we had a list of places, met up with Carrie and she showed us the houses. In the middle of our tour she mentioned one that had recently come on the market in the area we were looking so we dropped by for a look. We liked it. Solid, well maintained, excellent location...we were impressed. So impressed we drove by another 5 or 6 times over the next day and ended up calling Carrie to make an offer on it.

Through the entire purchasing process Carrie was extremely helpful. You need that when you’re going through it from a couple of thousand miles away. She made it easy and painless. Perfect.

If you're looking for a home in the 78704 Carrie Bills is the one to call. Period.

Carrie rocks. We were looking for a realtor several years ago to buy our home in Austin, and found Carrie before leaving our current permanent base in Seattle. We loved the look of her website and when we called to make an appointment 'just to start looking' Carrie was super amenable. At that point, we didn't really know where we wanted to live in Austin other than pretty central and reasonably funky.

Over tacos Carrie declared we needed to live in Travis Heights, and boy was she right. We looked at a couple of places on the list we'd come equipped with and then Carrie suggested another just on the market - DREAM HOUSE. Thought about it for 24 hours, decided to go for it, Carrie negotiated a great deal and she's been a friend ever since.

I would recommend Carrie to anybody who needs a realtor with a deep understanding of Austin 'hoods and an uncanny knack of knowing what house might be the right one for you. Plus Carrie is just lovely - genuine, warm and a delight to hang out with.

My partner and I bought our first house in May. We used Green Mango's very own Angelle Hall as our realtor. Not only was she smart and down-to-earth, she busted her butt to find us a house, showing us any and all properties we wanted to see.

She was flexible and a great communicator. She explained everything to us, as we were first-timers, and she was available to us when we needed her. We found our dream house and she worked closely with the seller's agent to make it happen for us. I could not recommend her or Green Mango more highly.

I highly recommend Green Mango Real Estate. When I hired Carrie Bills and her team I was impressed with the level of professional guidance they brought. Everything moved forward with minimal participation on my part and with guidance and expert suggestions each step of the way. I really rely on my real estate agent to be the expert and clearly communicate how the process will work. Carrie and her team are great communicators, equipped with market data and expert analysis to make recommendation and their track record proves it.

The integrity I was looking for, I found at Green Mango Real Estate. If you have worked with the real estate environment you know how priceless trust and integrity can be. The level of experience and intelligence combined with an optimistic yet practical based attitude will delight you.

After working with many other real estate agents I am delighted to recommend Carrie Bills and her team at Green Mango as my best experience yet. Thank you for taking care of my home and helping me find another family to love my home.
