Looking for our first home was never a pain with Alysse as our agent. As an exclusive buyers agent, she only thought about our welfare and how we can have our dream house. she was there to assisst with all the paperwork, provide referrals and sometimes babysit for 10 mins while we checked the house! LOL overall shes was the best thing that happend on our house hunt! thank you Alysse!”

“Our search for an exclusive buyer’s agent led to Stef, and we are very happy it did! As first-time homebuyers, we really did not know what we were getting ourselves into. We didn’t know what to look for in a house, what to stay away from, how long the process should take, etc., but Stef walked us  through every step. He initially took us to a house and did a ‘Buying a House 101’ experience, teaching us about easements and wall cracks and foundations, among other things; that experience was very useful! Throughout our home search, it was always very apparent that Stef’s number one goal was getting us a house we loved that was also a good purchase. For example, on more than one occasion Stef steered us away from a house we thought we loved but that had way too many problems — as first-time buyers it was very comforting to know that our realtor was truly on our side and wanted the best home and investment for us and not just trying to get a commission. He also really got to know our tastes and managed to channel our specific ‘flavor of weird’, which meant that he could preview homes for us, saving us time. It was clear that he really paid attention to our wishes as well; he remembered details about our lifestyle and wishlist many months after we had discussed them. When it came time to make an offer and close, Stef was excellent. He was quick with document preparation, he acted on our behalf with third parties where possible (another big time saver!), and he put necessary pressure on the lender in a very diplomatic way. In the end, we got the perfect house at the perfect price in the part of town we wanted to be in, and our homebuying experience was a true pleasure, all thanks to Stef. We have recommended him to our friends in Houston and we will call him up if we ever decide to buy a house again. When it comes to homebuying, there is nothing better you can do than have Stef in your corner.” ZUser

“Alysse saved us over $40,000 on our home purchase!  Needless to say, we’re thrilled!” Dr. Timothy and Michelle Rogers

“Pam was an excellent realtor and made our “First Time Home Buyer’s” experience informative and enjoyable. She was always helpful in answering our questions and gave us in-depth answers that really helped us understand the home buying process. Pam was also very accommodating of our needs and always brought things for our kids to play with while we walked through houses, making it easier for us to look at the houses. We definitely felt that Pam was looking out for our best interests during the whole process and was always willing to share her opinion and thoughts with us on the various houses that we looked at. We would absolutely recommend Pam to a friend or colleague. She is awesome!”  Corey & Britney

Houston, Texas

“Once I realized I needed help buying a house, I researched agents. I learned Exclusive Buyers’ Agents never help sellers, they only help buyers. I found Alysse Musgrave of “HelpUBuy America.” I am a do it yourselfer, so I really liked the idea of her flat rate program. It was as if we were a team and she mostly advised and negotiated for us. I really felt like she was working to make us happy. I was able to choose my financing, appraiser, title company and inspector. Alysse helped with this but I did my own research and made my own choices. I was able to have fun looking at homes and secure in the knowledge that she was there to keep me from making a bad deal. Alysse was very sorry for talking us out of the first house because of issues she pointed out, but this really sold my husband on her services (that house is still for sale). She has a talent for inspecting homes. The money I saved by going with her flat rate service, I plan to use for my new library room. I highly recommend Alysse Musgrave and her company.” Bill & Kathy Nance

“HelpUBuy America did a great job for us. They was quick to respond to our questions, and never once tried to “sell” us a house. I trusted their advice. We’re very happy with our experience with them. “ Darla & Carla

Carrollton, Texas

Thank you for working hard for us…you went above & beyond. Your quick response, undivided loyalty, and looking out for our best interest are greatly appreciated.” Kristie & Mark

Bedford, Texas

“Alysse was a much needed partner in my search for a house during a very stressful time. I had just moved 1300 miles to start a new job for which I am still in very intense training. I did not have time for a lot of research. Circumstances required that I find a house quickly but I didn’t want any mistakes on a purchase that size. There were none.

“Alysse quickly understood what I was looking for. As a buyers agent she put my interests foremost and steered me away from properties that had flaws only a real estate professional would be aware of.

“If you are not in the Dallas/Fort Worth area you can still benefit from Alysse’s expertise. She has packed her knowledge into a book with a whimsical title that apparently cannot get by this sites censors.

“I ended up with a house that is exactly what I was looking for. And at a price under what I had expected to pay when I first arrived in town…thanks to Alysse’s accurate market analysis and sharp negotiating skills.

“I expect to be making some real estate investments in the future and plan to work with Alysse on those as well. I recommend that anyone contemplating a real estate purchase do the same.” Rod Peet, Jr.

Saginaw, Texas

“We worked with Alysse on the purchase of our home in early 2016. She was phenomenal. I initially contacted her in August 2015, but was eight months pregnant at the time and decided to postpone our home buying until early 2016. When I contacted Alysse again in January 2016, she remembered us and arranged a meeting to discuss what we were looking for. She was accommodating not only to our schedule, but to specific needs such as bringing our two children along with us during viewings. She made us feel at ease and comfortable during each home viewing and pointed out pros and cons of each home. Alysse was so patient with our wants and needs lists, which were ever-changing throughout our home search. She was responsive and reassuring to our many questions and concerns. Once we began the offer process, she walked us through each step and offered sound advice regarding our offers. During the contract and inspection phase, she routinely checked in with us to assure us that everything was following our timeline. Alysse did a great job guiding us in how to select inspectors and home warranty companies. She was with us during our closing and made sure everything was in order. Even weeks after our closing, she has checked in with us to make sure all is well.

“As first time home-buyers we went into this process with minimal home buying knowledge and a lot of anxiety. Alysse made the entire experience easy and pleasant. When we finally received our keys, we could hardly believe how smooth the whole process was. Though we hope to stay put for many, many years, if we are ever in the market for another home in the future, we will absolutely contact Alysse again. We highly recommend her services, and are extremely grateful to her.” Chris & Laura Adams

Ft. Worth, Texas

“I highly recommend Alysse Musgrave as a buyer agent for real estate. First, Alysse listens to her customers and delivers the essential information to help make well-informed decisions be they for a home as a primary residence or investment property. Alysse is a great source of information. Ethically sound – highest marks for ethics! She will help guide you toward your real estate decision and purchase.

Alysse is an advisor or consultant and not a “salesperson” looking to close any deal at your expense. Her ethics are of the highest level, and this is evident as the core of her exclusive buyer business model.

She has a broad base of knowledge to help guide any buyer of real estate be it a home or investment property. She has the ability to evaluate a property with a keen eye toward the all-important foundation and structure. She shines during the inspection stage and this helps protect you and your investment.

I would certainly recommend her to my family without hesitation.

Alysse Musgrave is mindful of her client’s security, and guards their privacy. She is respectful in her dealings, and also very personable. She is attentive and focused on the task at hand — adept at using all the modern communications and electronic forms involved with real estate transactions. We were able to work through the details of a purchase from across the country. I would not hesitate to employ her again.”

Todd & Shelley HeidelbaughPlano, Texas

“Ramzey did a great job with the whole process from beginning to end, he helped me find and also negotiated for the house that I wanted. He has a solid experience and knowledge in the industry and is a great asset to the buyer.”

Raja Khazen
Houston, Texas

We’ve bought seven houses over the years and Alysse is by far the best agent we’ve ever worked with. She is intelligent, upfront, hard-working, nice, and HONEST. She explained how we were going to get some money from her at closing because she didn’t have to do much work for us. The fact she only represents buyers is great because she doesn’t have any conflicts of interest. We’ve dealt with agents who said they were working solely on our behalf but we could tell they just wanted to make the sale, especially if the house was listed by their real estate company. We highly recommend working with Alysse. She is a wonderful buyers agent. We are 100% happy with our experience working with her.”

Heather Smith
Plano, Texas

We were so fortunate to have been recommended by a friend to work with Alysse!! She is a superior agent with excellent know how, timely responses, very effective communicator and was able to quickly guide us in the competitive real estate market when we came in from out of state for a quick house  hunting trip. She is truly masterful at what she does!! Her understanding of our needs, helping us focus on our priorities and guiding us each step of the way was incredible!! Her follow up and concern for details was also impeccable!! You will be in very good hands with any transactions you do with Alysse!!”

Lorraine Griffith
Plano, Texas

Alysse Musgrave is a spectacular realtor who exclusively represents buyers. With many years of realtor experience, she provides buyers with lots of guidance and support, she negotiates hard on your behalf and is a straight shooter. I recently purchase a new spec home and I had a great experience  using Alysse as my exclusive buyers agent. As a first time home buyer, Alysse did a great job keeping me in the loop on things from the very beginning all the way through closing on my new home. I highly recommend anyone looking to purchase a home to seriously consider hiring Alysse Musgrave to represent you. You’ll be glad you did. Best of luck and happy home buying to you.”

Matt Reynolds
Prosper, Texas

Alysse helped me buy an awesome home for a great deal. We viewed many homes over the course of a few months, she was meticulous with details and always looked out for my best interest. She was very knowledgeable about homes especially when it came to foundation issues. When we put our offer  down they were some issues and she was able to cover all the bases with contract amendments so if the sale fell through I wouldn’t be out any earnest money. Alysse and her team kept the ball rolling while under contract and were very helpful guiding me through the process. Not sure I could have done it without her as this was my first real estate purchase. I highly recommend Alysse to anyone looking to buy a home.”

Max Campbell

“I did my research. Get an Exclusive Buyer’s Agent! Most agents work for the seller in some capacity even when they tell you they only represent buyers. This is because they work for companies that also represent sellers. Do you think they feel any loyalty to the sellers agents that sit next to them in their offices? Of course they do! Alysse’s company only represents buyers and always has. So there is absolutely never a conflict of interest. She only looks out for your best interests and never anyone else’s. You’ll get inside information about some of the tactics that are used by agents that you typically wouldn’t hear from normal agents. Alysse has a great eye for conditions of houses. I remember one of the first homes we saw, almost as soon as we walked in, she said the house was great but the floor is unlevel. I could not see it at all, and never would have seen it if it weren’t for her. It took my wife and I several mintues of looking at the floor from different directions to finally notice it. About Alysse personally, she is fantastic! After looking at several houses over a couple of weeks, I got very discouraged and felt like we were never going to find “the” house. She was patient with me throughout it all. We decided to take a break from looking at houses on the upcoming weekend. But my wife and I found a couple of houses in an area that we really wanted to be in. I told her about them and she immediately made arrangements to go see them both the next day. I’m so glad we did because we found the house that we eventually bought. And we are very happy with it! After putting in the offer for the house, Alysse and her fantastic assistant Pam stayed in touch pretty much every day. They helped remind us of all the steps that we needed to take to make the process go smoothly. We closed on the house in a little over 3 weeks. Now that the sale is complete, she still keeps in touch to make sure everything is going ok. So we still get to work with her! And that’s a good thing because I really learned a lot about the home buying process from her. Plus, she’s just a great person. You can really see that she cares about you and your interests. And that is exactly why you should use her when you are looking to buy a home!”

Jack & Mary Partain
Allen, Texas

Alysse was a pleasure to work with. She made the entire process flow smoothly and worked hard to get us the best deal on the house we wanted. She’s very competent and I trust her judgement. Alysse is honest and frank, which helped to quickly narrow our search and have confidence in our purchase.  You won’t regret working with her.”

Tanner Handerson
Dallas, Texas

Stef was great to work with. From the very beginning, he was very personable, willing to share his past experiences, and willing to guide and teach a first-time buyer. I even brought in the extra challenge of having him work outside of his typical geographical area. In addition to being quick  and thorough in his responses and analyses, the best was that he knew when to explain things and when to back off and let me digest all the information. Rather than just provide me all the information about certain details, he would plant the seed so that I would come to the conclusion on my own, a much better way to discover and make the lesson stick with you. Would definitely work with Stef again!”Jarhyne
Houston, Texas

We really enjoyed working with Alysse. She is very responsible, knows her stuff and will during the tour, let you know from her expertise if there are any major foundation problems in the house. We felt very comfortable working with her. She also in her assessment let us know the cons of a house,  what could affect resale. She was also very accurate on her assessment of the value of the house. I think we were a bit more aggressive with our negotiation than was recommended but that was a choice me and my husband had made and it worked out. She was also very responsive in communication which we appreciated. The seller’s agent called her one of the best agents he has ever worked with and I’d believe it. We will, and have recommended her to our friends and coworkers.” Lei Tran

Las Colinas, Texas

A 1st-time buyer, I first became familiar with Alysse Musgrave via her book, “Buying a Home: Don’t Let Them Make a Monkey Out of You!” She is a terrific Buyer’s Agent who understands the process, can identify a house with issues in no time and communicates fully, frequently and understandably. If  you are in the market, Alysse will not disappoint.”

Frisco, Texas

I would strongly recommend Alysse if you are looking for a buyer’s agent. She is very good with what she does and always considers what your are looking for in a house. She doesn’t try to rush you into a decision when you’re not ready. I was looking for an exclusive buyers agent and was very  happy with Alysse. From when we first met over coffee to discuss what I was looking for, I knew she was the right agent for me. She impressed me with her knowledge of the area, the pluses and minuses of houses we were viewing, and price points. Unfortunately, my situation changed and I had to drop my search for a house. However, I will start looking again in 6-12 months and will definitely contact Alysse again. I strongly recommend Alysse for anyone looking to buy a house in the Dallas area.”

Fred Gruman

Plano, Texas

I came across Alysse when doing research for an Exclusive Buyer Agent in the DFW area as we were relocating from MA. My wife and I are extremely grateful to have found Alysse as she made the entire process easy and provided lots of great insight into the DFW area. From showing us homes during a  quick weekend trip to be very responsive while we were still in Boston, she was awesome. Ultimately she pointed us to a great neighborhood with great schools which is perfect for our family and we could not be any happier. Would highly recommend her and her team. THANK YOU Alysse!”

George and Carolina

Flower Mound, Texas

Alysse really went the extra mile to represent us as a buyer’s agent. She has an excellent understanding of the real estate market in North Texas and her insight and attention to a property prevented us from making a purchase that could have been a mistake. In an environment where many other  realtors are looking to make a quick sale, that level of honesty and astuteness is truly commendable. Alysse is knowledgeable, honest, experienced, personable, and an expert at what she does. Alysse made the closing process seem easy as well. I will definitely work with Alysse again if I buy another property and would strongly recommend her to friends and family. Two thumbs up and thanks for your hard work!

“I chose Alysse primarily because I got the distinct impression both from her book and in meeting with her, that: 1. She had great deal of experience in the areas I was interested in, 2. She was very ethical would look out for my interests, 3. She would be tolerant of my inexperience as a first time buyer and help me through the entire process and, 4. Her process of  finding properties would be very suitable for me, where I filter possibilities online, then she filters them further by previewing them. The bottom line is I feel I was very fortunate to be able to work with someone of her caliber in locating a property that was a very good fit in an incredibly short period of time.” Jeffrey Lohman

McKinney, Texas

Knowledgeable and responsive- Alysse helped us buy our first home and held our hands through the entire process. She acted in our interest and used deep experience in the real estate market to get us exactly what we wanted. Highly recommended. Josiah Sandusky

Dallas, Texas

“I can definitely recommend Alysse as a buyers agent. My wife and I first worked with a different agent with whom we were not very satisfied. Alysse has a good eye for spotting structural problems before you go to the trouble of getting an inspection done. I was very pleased with the information she provided and felt it was unbiased. Alysse also knew the areas where we were shopping very well.” Drew C.

Flower Mound, Texas

“Ramzey is easy to work with. He knows the market, explains the process, and pays attention to the detail making sure the buyer pays only what he/ she needs to pay. I would highly recommend him to anyone.” Anna Seroshtanova

“Thank you, thank you, thank you, Alysse, for taking such good care of us. We love our new house and appreciate your honesty, integrity, and wealth of knowledge. Can’t wait to have you over for dinner!” Paula Martins

Frisco, Texas

“We were looking into buying a house in DFW area and I have already read her book which was very informative. I was very happy having her as our agent. Not only was she looking after our interest, but also ensured that we are not buying into a wrong house.

“Alysse has deep knowledge on the housing market and what to watch out when buying a house. She was working day and night and kept us informed on the progress. Actually she made the whole home purchase very easy for us by dealing with all the complexity in the background. She has good contacts, however I have switched to another lender with better conditions and that was not a problem at all.

“As we only saw a few houses and found so quickly our dream home, we were eligible for the flat fee and we got some money back.

“It is good to know that after the purchase Alysse will still be around for any questions or concerns which is very important as a first time buyer in my perspective.

“I can only recommend having an exclusive buyers agent and especially Alysse which is looking out for your interest only and not any ones else.” Ralph Wabel

Highland Village, Texas

“After reading the book, I googled her name and found that she works in Dallas area where I was looking for a house! I immediately contacted her and decided to work with her. When I interviewed her, it was kind of funny to ask her the questions she recommended to ask in her book:) I really enjoyed working with her and we bought a house we really liked at a great price. If you were in Dallas area, don’t hesitate to contact her for an interview.” Dukgun Kim

Coppell, Texas

“Working with Alysse was such a great experience! She truly has the buyer’s best interest in mind. As a first time buyer, she encouraged me to go with the least expensive house we looked at ($50k under budget!) because of its value, resale potential and flexible floorplan that could easily accommodate the “what ifs”. She was so much fun to work with, like having a (very!) honest friend walk through houses with me. I’d highly recommend her to anyone in the DFW area!” Amy Mohr

Ft. Worth, Texas

“Best agent I could ever imagine! She has become not just my agent, but a friend. If you are looking to buy a house don’t hesitate to give her a call, you will quickly find yourself with not just an agent, but a friend who is on YOUR side.

“I am a first time homeowner(was a first time homebuyer!) and started looking around Late September/Early October time frame. I have always been a Do-it-Yourself type, so I already had a few picks before I even went looking for an agent. I went to the North American Exclusive Buyers Agents website and set up for them to send me a list of EBA in my area. I called/emailed several, and at first I didn’t know if I was going to go with Alysse, because she had a book, and I don’t really trust professionals that write books… But then, completely unprompted, she gave me a free copy… I was like, wait, why give away a FREE copy of your book, to a potential client… Well clearly it wasn’t about the money, and that’s when I started to pay attention. Alysse was ALL about HELPING BUYERS. In this case, that was me. We never talked about fees, and she was more than willing to give me all the advice I wanted and didn’t want long before I signed ANYTHING establishing her as my Agent.

“So now it is the end of October, and we start looking at houses. We found the PERFECT(no such thing) house on the very first try! Unfortunately, it was listed well above what it was worth, and even Alysse can’t fix stupid. So it was back out into the trenches! We saw several more houses, some I really wanted, and Alysse was there, patiently pointing out all the flaws, and informing us of why those houses LOOKED perfect, but weren’t really even good…

“Then we found our new home… It wasn’t supposed to be anything big, just another listing, a tester viewing for the neighborhood, really just a stand in for a house that I WANTED to view, but wasn’t available at the time due to renovations… We loved it, and Alysse worked hard to find flaws in it, to make sure we were getting the best. And when we got to the point of getting the house inspected(Which Alysse helped ME pick out, giving me several resources to use, and her own recommendations) the inspector was BLOWN AWAY. The condition of the house was almost perfect! I don’t think he pointed out anything that Alysse hadn’t already brought up, and none of it was a cause for concern.

“There was a lot to handle between making an offer and closing day, but Alysse helped me through it all. She always told me my options, even when my lender or the title company made it seem like there weren’t any options. I think total we’ve sent about 250 emails back and forth to each other. Ultimately closing came and went, on time, without issue and now, as a first time Homeowner, I feel confident going forward because there were no surprises during the home buying experience, and I’m sure, with Alysse as my guide, there won’t be anything going forward that I can’t handle.” Preston Fawley

Savannah, Texas

“Alysse was truly a life safer when trying to buy a home in the hot DFW area market. Being new to the area, she helped steer us in the right direction. Because she is a buyer’s agent, she is extremely honest and helpful which helps you make the right decision. I cannot say enough about her and her level of knowledge, expertise and professionalism. She even know her stuff when it comes to doing work on a house and decorating! I highly recommend her.”

“Working with Alysse made the house buying experience easy, which is not something that’s easy to do! She knows all the tricks of the trade and is reasonable, affordable and understanding. Although she helped us find our dream home (so I don’t expect to need her again anytime soon) I will not hesitate to recommend her to anyone I know who is buying a home. Highly recommended.”

Emily Bushnell

“He (Ramzey) paid attention to detail and very knowledgeable. Helped us avoid bad deals and houses with issues that could’ve caused problems down the road.”

Ruben Loganantharaj
Houston, Texas

Alysse was the ultimate professional when it came to working with her to find the perfect home for my family. She listened to our needs and worked diligently to find exactly what we were looking for. Alysse was there from the beginning all the way through to the closing to answer any questions and assist us with all of the quirks with buying a house. Having an Exclusive Buyer’s Agent like Alysse by your side is by far the best thing you can have when buying a home. She is able to provide advice and opinions as well as the appropriate vendors she has experience with for things you might need during the process. Having her there during the closing was nice as well. She was a true asset and I would highly recommend her to anyone looking to purchase a home in the future!”

Shelley Wehr
The Colony, Texas

I had an excellent experience purchasing a home with the help of Alysse. She is very knowledgeable, transparent and helpful. She knows the DFW area very well. Additionally, she is very knowledgeable regarding house construction, including foundations, maintenance, possible repairs, and price  points. Alysse works with you’re tastes to find a home at the price point you want, and she always fights for the best deal for the buyer. I’d highly recommend anyone purchasing a home to consider Alysse as their Buyer’s Agent.”

My hubby and I were referred to Alysse by one of our great friends. We were first time home buyers and we didn’t know what to really expect. But Alysse is a wealth of knowledge and she made home buying easy and fun. I loved the fact that after our first conversation and seeing a few houses, she  knew exactly what I was looking for in a house as well as what my husband was looking for and she helped us get that in one house. I would and always recommended Alysse to a first and a veteran home buyer. My family and I are grateful.”

Folks who are buying homes – The threat to be duped by unethical sell-side realtors is real. Sellers own all the risk. DO NOT work with the same agent on buying / selling a property – while allowable in Texas this practice is illegal in other states due to lobbyists. There are also massive conflicts of interest working with agents who buy and sell for a typical brokerage. Typical realtors and their brokerages get paid more when the price is higher and deals go through. Typical realtors have financial incentives to convince you to buy a property (even if it’s a poor investment) and to pay more for it. It’s just not possible for them to represent your interests with this setup. Eyes wide open folks – typical realtors and brokerages are scummy and setup to take advantage of buyers. What to do? Only way to guarantee someone is working for your interest is to work with a buy side only realtor like Alysse. She helped me avoid getting stuck with a property with foundation issues and also counterweight against an unethical realtor that was failing to provide necessary reports and information. Alysse also does a great job on comps, negotiations strategy, and interpreting a selling agent’s tactics and objectives. Very responsive, very knowledgeable and has great tools to work on documents over email efficiently and quickly. Forget the typical realtors and their conflicts of interest, often poor level of service, and ridiculous commissions and hire Alysse – you won’t regret it”.

Roth Nelson
Greenville, Texas

Alysse helped me find a home that is high quality, affordable, and in a good location. Her knowledge of the local area saved me hours of looking at the wrong properties. We found a place that perfectly fit my needs in a very short time. She was very responsive, and answered all of my questions  (no matter how dumb) patiently and accurately. And her expertise made the transaction painless and almost stress free. Most importantly, as an Exclusive Buyers Agent, I knew that Alysse was on my side during this process, and always looking out for my needs and best interest. I highly recommend Alysse to help you find your new home too.”

As an out-of-state buyer with an extremely limited purchasing time frame, my situation had very unique challenges. Stef was wholly aware of the time constraints and sought to understand my requirements of an ideal property from day one. He was very professional and very prompt with communications.  Stef was also very knowledgeable about the entire process, which was very useful to me as a first-time buyer. He made me aware of not only the home-buying process, but also of what I should be mindful when previewing the property itself. Stef went the extra mile to preview properties on his own in order to weed out those which were not suited to my requirements. This expedited the process and was immensely helpful for the weekend I was able to fly down and view properties in person, as it meant that I was not wasting time on properties that seemed suitable in the pictures but actually had flaws that could only be seen in person. Never did I feel pressured to buy a property. Stef patiently answered all my questions and continues to be very helpful and accessible, even following my purchase of a property. I highly, highly recommend Stef. You will feel supported and well-informed throughout the often complex and confusing home-buying process.”

Too bad 5 stars is the maximum, because we don’t feel it sufficiently reflects how happy we are with the service provided by Alysse Musgrave and her company, HelpUBuy America, an exclusive buyer’s agency. Alysse’s company only represents buyers. We were first time homebuyers, and with very little  knowledge about how to find the right place. We could not have asked for a better agent to lead us through the process! We had an excellent experience buying our first home with our exclusive buyer’s agent Alysse. She was very knowledgeable about the area, the local real estate market and entire transaction process. She did an exceptional job in our home buying experience from beginning to end. We visited Alysse’s website and read her book Buying A Home: Don’t Let them Make a Monkey Out of You! before even contacting her. We highly recommend reading it, it is a helpful Gem of a Book! As an Exclusive Buyers Agent, we knew that Alysse was on our side during this process, and always looking out for our needs and best interest. She gained our trust and we knew we were in good hands throughout the process. She is intelligent, hard-working, and honest. Her expertise and advice was invaluable. She was very patient, helpful, and maintained great communication throughout the entire process. She is very thorough and diligent in her work. She was very knowledgeable about homes especially when it came to foundation and roof issues. We are very selective and appreciated Alysse’s Pro and Cons when she assessed a potential home. She was always available to answer all our questions and address our concerns. We felt like she had our back, was never pushy and was always looking out for us and our home buying needs. She took the time to get to know us, build a strong and real relationship with us, and we feel like we have gained a friendship along the way. It is such a relief to have someone you can trust when making such a huge purchasing decision. Without hesitation, we highly recommended Exclusive Buyers Agent Alysse Musgrave. I promise you won’t be disappointed. She goes above and beyond and will get the job done. Buying a home is never as easy as you think it is going to be, but Alysse will help it go as smoothly as possible. After closing, she has checked in with us often to make sure all is well. We are so lucky that we found Alysse, and HelpUBuy America. She made buying our first home an enjoyable and easy experience. Thanks again Alysse for an amazing job.”

We really enjoyed working with Alysse. She is very responsible, knows her stuff and will during the tour, let you know from her expertise if there are any major foundation problems in the house. We felt very comfortable working with her. She also in her assessment let us know the cons of a house,  what could affect resale. She was also very accurate on her assessment of the value of the house. I think we were a bit more aggressive with our negotiation than was recommended but that was a choice me and my husband had made and it worked out. She was also very responsive in communication which we appreciated. The seller’s agent called her one of the best agents he has ever worked with and I’d believe it. We will, and have recommended her to our friends and coworkers.

“Stef made first time home buying a rather pleasant experience for us. He got to know us and what we were looking for relatively quickly and stayed flexible when we re-prioritized our “must haves”… a few times. Stef was always available when we needed him but also gave us space when our schedules became too busy for house hunting. Additionally, we never felt pressured to compromise. With all of that said, what we found most valuable was how easy and efficient he made the offer and closing process. We never had to wonder “whats next?” in the process because he had it all outlined and checked-in regularly to make sure we were able to get everything done in time. It was very reassuring to have someone knowledgeable and diligent on our side when buying our first home.”

“The words are not enough when explaining our “home buying” experience. We would have given up if it wasn’t for you. Thank you for finding our dream home. You have a great gift of patience and perseverance! We love our home!” Wayne & Angela

Southlake, Texas

“We hired Alysse to help us by a house that was for sale by owner. She spotted a problem with the foundation in less than 5 minutes! After leaning on the seller a bit, we learned that the foundation had been repaired in the past. The seller never mentioned it to us. Alysse saved our behind on that deal! She later helped us buy a different house, and the house appraised for about $15,000 more than what we paid. Couldn’t be happier! “ Stanley & Rachel McDonald

“My case was a little complicated, and without Alysse’s support and all the work she’s done for me, I would have given up and stayed in my apartment.” Marcel Quiron

“Ramzey did a great job with the whole process from beginning to end, he helped me find and also negotiated for the house that I wanted. He has a solid experience and knowledge in the industry and is a great asset to the buyer.” Raja Khazen

“We arrived in Dallas planning to rent a house, but quickly decided that buying made more sense financially. We didn’t know the area and we had never bought a house before. My sister recommended we contact a buyer’s agent, so I researched online and found several in the area. I also discovered Alysse’s book “Buying A Home: Don’t Let them Make a Monkey Out of You!”, which I promptly purchased and read (and highly recommend). I then visited the HelpUBuy America website, filled out the contact form, and was pleasantly surprised when Alysse herself responded within hours. Alysse’s expertise was invaluable, steering us away from houses that had obvious structural issues and assisting us in obtaining financing. She helped us locate a house we could afford and that both my husband and I loved. We closed on our new house just seven weeks after we hit town. Amazing. I highly recommended the services of HelpUBuy America.” Bill & Karen Gibson

Corinth,, Texas

“My husband and I were first time home buyers. We didn’t know where to start or what we needed to do. We did minimal research and discovered Buyer agents. Alysse was amazing! We couldn’t have asked for a better guide through this major life process! She walked us through each step and even now that we have purchased our first home, she is still willing (and frequently does) help us out and answer any questions that we have as first time home owners. I can’t praise Alysse and her line of work enough! It is so reassuring to have a Buyer’s agent that is only interested in you and what you are looking for.” Robert & Bonnie Sneling

Hurt, Texas

“My husband and I were first time home buyers and had no idea what we were doing, but Alysse guided us through every step of the process. We originally looked at resale homes, but after a few months we decided to pursue a new construction home and ended up finding the perfect lot in a wonderful community! We had a few bumps along the way with the builder, but Alysse stepped in an took care of everything for us. We’ve been in our new home for 2 months now, and we absolutely love it! Alysse is a wonderful person to work with, and we couldn’t have done it without her!” Austin & Macie Blythe

Celina, Texas

“Alysse and her team is an amazing find. My husband did lots of research on buyer agents in Texas and found her book first. We enjoy looking at real estate, so we decided to use her flat fee program she offers that saved us thousands of dollars. Alysse is extremely helpful and my very favorite, honest. She will tell you the pros and cons of the home you are interested in with your best interest at heart. She’s extremely quick to respond and her knowledge of real estate is second to none. She’s a joy to work with and we are thankful to have found her for our last home purchase.” Justin & Candice

Flower Mound, Texas

“Alysse is an excellent independent, exclusive buyers’ agent. Because she works with buyers only, she puts your interests first and is very transparent at every step of the process. She very professionally guided us through the whole home buying process as first-time buyers. We were very impressed by her negotiation skills, promptness in response and knowledge of the local housing market – we highly recommended her to anyone buying a home in the DFW metroplex!” Christoffer Koch

Dallas Texas

“Alysse just helped us buy our first home in DFW – a tough market at this time. I found her to be trustworthy, quick to answer questions, and very straightforward. She helped us negotiate a good deal when we found issues with the house and made great recommendations for what work needed to be done. She even attended the closing with me and has been wonderful with following up. She has literally written the book on buying a home in Texas, and I highly, highly recommend her as your agent!” Kelly Cornell

Bedford, Texas

“Alysse moved very quickly to secure us the home we wanted, without her speed we would have missed out as they had two backup offers the next day. She has lots of experience and answered all of our questions.” Shane Pope

Dallas, Texas

“Alysse Musgrave did an exceptional job in our home buying experience from beginning to end. We were first time homebuyers, and we are very pleased that we chose to work with Alysse. She has extensive knowledge of the market, and has been in the business for a very long time. She is extremely patient, and is great at guiding you through each part of the process. We never felt rushed in my decision, and she is not afraid to tell you that a home is not a good match for you which is so important. She takes the time to get to know your needs, and ensures you find the right home that makes sense for your budget and style. She has extensive experience in negotiations, and knows what to look for in inspections, repairs, foundation issues. etc. She is also very responsive, and very attentive. I would recommend her to anyone. She was such an important part in making our homebuyer experience a success.” Lalo & Vi Tran

Flower Mound, Texas

“My husband and I worked with Alysse to purchase our home this past summer during the heat of the intense housing market. Despite the competitive market, we were able to find and purchase the house we wanted at a great price due to Alysse’s strategic advice and negotiation savvy. She knows the market and communities well, has phenomenal skills with communicating, and is a pleasure to work with. Alysse is courteous, professional, incredible smart, and level headed. I recommend her to anyone looking for a new home!” James & Jennifer Quinn

Celina, Texas

“Working with Alysse was the perfect match for us. We already had a good idea of what kind of house we would buy and which area of town and she was extremely helpful in pointing out important things we were not focusing on (future resale, neighborhood location, etc…). Her experience was very helpful in negotiating a great deal for us even in a sellers market with multiple offers. We definitely recommend Alysse!” TJ & Meghan Hanson

Plano, Texas

My girlfriend and I were first time home buyers and had a great experience with Alysse. We spent several months visiting homes before we found one we really liked. During this time Alysse was an incredible resource for any questions and concerns we had, and was great about showing us homes we were  financially comfortable with that still met our needs. She has a lot of knowledge and experience with the DFW area and real estate in general, and was an overall pleasure to work with. Even since closing on our home, she’s followed up with us multiple times to check in and see how things are going smoothly. We definitely recommend her and would work with her again.” Jonathan Tran

Coppell, Texas

I realize that my rating looks like i just breezed through but i honestly cant say enough good things about Alysse. She just finished helping me not only buy but pick my first home. i went in with no clear idea what i wanted and a difficult schedule to work with. she showed me houses until i had a  better idea what i wanted then showed me MORE houses until i found one i actually wanted to buy. all the paperwork was super easy and electronic. she was there any time i had a question about anything, was very knowledgeable, and has made the whole process so much less painful than i was expecting. bottom line: she went the extra mile for me, will do so for you, and i highly recommend having her with you if you plan on buying a house.” Tony Jolliff

McKinney, Texas

When we moved to McKinney, TX, from Chicago on short notice, we knew we wanted an exclusive buyer’s agent to represent our interests. Alysse was one of the agents recommended by the National Association of Exclusive Buyer Agents, and she contacted us right away. She asked lots of questions about  our needs and wants, and even helped direct us to a more expeditious lender than the big bank we were intending to use. She was invaluable during the house-hunting process. We arrived in town with 48 hours to find a home, and she showed us TEN houses on the first day. There were houses we instantly fell in love with — oh, there’s a pool! look at the gorgeous skylight! — but Alysse looked beyond the surface appeal and was able to point out foundation problems, evidence of water damage, etc. Without her discriminating eye looking out for us, we likely would’ve made a poor decision. We got an education from Alysse, as well. We learned about which floor plans are best for resale, how to maintain a home’s foundation (new to us), and which were the more desirable school districts. She knows the area, knows the market, and makes sure buyers know all the pros and cons of any home they choose. After finding the perfect home, Alysse negotiated a great price for us, along with some seller-paid improvements to the home. She was closely involved during the closing process, as well. Using the lender she recommended, we were set for closing in an unbelievable ELEVEN days! She even arranged for us to close from Chicago, using a title company with a mobile notary to meet us at a convenient location. After closing, she continued to check in with us to make sure we were settling in well. We really appreciated her recommendations for lawn care services, restaurants, and other area amenities. We’re now in a home that works for us and fits our life. We love knowing that we’ve made a well-informed decision and a good investment. No buyer’s remorse, here! (As an additional bit of evidence of Alysse’s dedication, when we had a bit of a medical emergency on Day #2 of house-hunting, Alysse went out on her own to view listings, then reported back with her findings and recommendations. WOW!)” Sean & Randi Stouffer

McKinney, Texas

I recently used Alysse for the 3rd time to help me buy a home. I first hired her back in 2000 to buy a house in The Colony, TX. I wanted an exclusive buyer’s agent who was focused solely on looking out for the needs of buyers. I interviewed several but decided on Alysse. I am so glad I did!   She was very patient as I literally dragged her all over DFW – even looking at some homes 3 times. Yet she was never in a hurry to get me to commit to something and was great about pointing out potential costly repairs that she identified. When it was time to buy again in 2013, I remembered the great job Alysee did on the earlier purchase and hired her once again, this time buying in Oak Lawn. Once again, I had a great experience and was confident that she truly had my best interests at heart. When it was time to buy yet again earlier this year, I again reached out to Alysse. This time in Forest Hills. The reason I keep going back to her is the trust I have in her. I have complete faith in her advice and am confident she is always fair and honest. I really hope I don’t have to buy another home for many years to come. However, whenever the time comes, I will not hesitate to reach out to Alysse again.” Lisa Harrell-Sanchez

Dallas, Texas

My husband and I are new to the DFW area and after renting for a year, we decided it was time to buy a home. Since we weren’t all that familiar with the area, I asked my lender for a list of realtors. I did my research on all of them and after reading about Alysse’s experience and her background, I knew that she would be the perfect realtor for us. After meeting her in person, her knowledge and passion for the realty industry really shined through. I went home and read her book “Buying A Home: Don’t Let them Make a Monkey Out of You!” prior to looking at any houses. I was thoroughly impressed by the content and used it as a reference throughout the whole home buying process. I highly recommend reading it, it is a fantastic resource. Since we were purchasing our first home, we weren’t extremely sure of what we wanted and Alysse was very patient with us as we figured that out. Alysse turned every outing into a learning experience for us, pointing out flaws and things that we wouldn’t even ever consider when considering to purchase a home. She is extremely honest and was quick to steer us away from bad investments. Ultimately, we found “the one” and made our first and only offer on this home, a rare occurrence in the DFW housing market. Although the sellers received multiple offers and we didn’t offer the highest amount of money for the home, the sellers accepted our offer; I truly credit that to Alysse’s negotiation skills. Once she knew that we wanted our home, she did everything in her power to guarantee that our offer was accepted, and it was. I truly believe that had we worked with anyone else, we would probably still be looking for a home. I would highly recommend Alysse to anyone looking for a home. She is amazing and is truly passionate about what she does. My husband and I felt very empowered during the whole home buying process due to learning so much from Alysse; it’s funny to realize how clueless we were about the whole process prior to meeting her. We feel extremely lucky to have found Alysse! You won’t regret working with her!” Begonia Stevenson

My family and I were moving to Houston from overseas. Having done quite extensive research prior to the move, we decided to get a buying agent to help coordinating the house showing during my husband’s pre-move trip. Stef had been very active from day 1 that we got him on board. He was very  informative and helpful. With time differences, Stef had to work extra hours and weekends to make sure our communication was current. He is detail oriented which also helped us a lot, especially to vet out houses with potential issues. We found a beautiful home in the Champion Forest area within our tight schedule, which we couldn’t have done without Stef’s help. He has done a great job, above and beyond his line of duty. We couldn’t express in words how much we have appreciated his help. Highly recommended!” Ernstschnell75

Being a first time homebuyer as well as being from out-of-state, I had my worries and concerns about how best to proceed with homebuying. Alysse helped assuage those fears right away and made the process extremely easy and understandable on my end. During the initial home tours it was clear she  knew her stuff and we were glad she wasted no time in letting us know whether a house should be avoided. She was easy to reach at all times and helped us negotiate a great price for our new home. Now I worry I’ve been spoiled for my next home purchase but I guess that’s a good thing to complain about. 🙂 Would definitely recommend!”

We are first time home buyers. Alysse has a lot of knowledge and experience with the real estate in general, and she is very patient and easy to work with. Alysse is very responsible and responsive. She is willing to answer any questions or resolve any concerns you might have with regards to the  home-buying process. We are very glad that we found Alysse and we strongly recommend her. “

Alysse is one of the best real estate agents we have worked with. She helped us find our home in roughly a month’s time. We chose Alysse as we wanted an exclusive buyers’ agent who would safeguard and put our interests first, unlike typical dual agents who focus on getting a higher price for the  property. An amazing person, she worked to educate us about the housing market, evaluating property conditions, and helped us narrow down the areas to look at within our price range while also understanding our needs. Her integrity, honesty, thoroughness, and work ethic are excellent – these qualities are very rare to find in real estate agents. She is very thorough and diligent in her work – for instance, she advised us to walk away from a few properties we liked due to foundation issues she saw during our visit. Although they were not listed in the sellers’ disclosure, Alysse contacted the listing agent to find out that foundation repairs were necessary. She is a skilled negotiator and provides thorough comps. An amazing person, we are glad to have found and met her. She is a skilled negotiator and ensured the sellers addressed critical repairs identified in the inspection report.

Alysse was fantastic. This was our first home purchase, and she really helped take the stress out if the process. Alysse didn’t just show us homes, she taught us what to look for while looking at homes. When we has to pass on a house we really liked, Alysse just assured us there will be others,  and there was. She never told us not to like a house, but she made sure we weighed all the pros and cons of a house. Alysse is great and you will not be disappointed. She will negotiate any and everything to make sure you are getting the best deal possible. She is working exclusively for you and your best interest, which is what you want.”
