“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.”

“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.”

“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.”

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.

“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 (Pearland)

“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.”

“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)

“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 (Bell)

“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)

“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.”

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)

“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 (Fort Worth)

“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 (Plano)

“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.

“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 & Kristin Fawley (Savannah)

“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.”

“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.”

“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.”

Emily Bushnell (Frisco)

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.”

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!”

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.”

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.”

Wayne & Angela (Southlake)

“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!”

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.”

Tanner Henderson (Dallas)

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”.

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!”

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.”

“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.”

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.”

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.”

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.”

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.”

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.”

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!

“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.”
