When interviewing prospective Realtors, Edwin stood out due to his knowledge of the local real estate market, credentials, sales experience and flexibility. As the sales process moved forward Edwin’s business sense and professional demeanor made the process very easy and eliminated much of the stress we could have potentially experienced. The final sale of the house met our time line/requirements and sold for a price we were happy with. We look forward to working with Edwin in the future.

My wife and I recently moved down from Chicago to the Austin area. Edwin Lui was very personable and professional during the entire time that he worked with us in finding our home. Even though he lives up in Round Rock and has a family of his own with two young kids, he was more than willing to sacrifice his evenings and weekends to take us out and search for homes all over the North Austin/Cedar Park/Round Rock area. He was also very accessible by email or text with any questions or concerns we had during the entire process. We felt no pressure from him to buy quickly or settle on a house that we were not totally comfortable with, and he was very honest in his assessment of the numerous homes that we looked at. He also has great connections with lenders and mortgage brokers in the area, which gave me a lot of comfort because I was able to speak with the referred lender and make sure that financially everything was in place for the eventual purchase of our house. I even got a rate discount through the lender since Edwin referred me!
Overall a wonderful experience with Mars Hill Realty – I highly recommend them for your Realtor needs!

My wife and I purchased our first house this week. We were referred to Mars Hill Realty in Georgetown. After meeting Edwin, I knew we were in good hands. He is very knowledgeable, personable, and made our first home purchase fun and a exciting. I would suggest stopping your realtor search now and call Edwin. Thank you Edwin!

Edwin is a life-saver and went above and beyond to help our family out in a trying time. I would recommend him, 100%. Not only did he sell our condos, but he got us the best deal possible and was a true gentleman. Thank you so much.
– Lorna Hinson
Edwin Lui was an absolute joy to work with, going above and beyond to help us sell the condos while we were dealing with a dying family member. Knowledgeable, comforting, hard-working — he made an impossible situation work and we will always be grateful.
– Shawn Squires
Edwin marketed our land with vigor, enthusiasm, and with an abundance of local knowledge. His continued good nature was just a happy bonus. We would not hesitate to call on him again for any real estate work in the area.

Edwin help turn a potential painful experience into something easy. We vacated our house in June of 2012 and moved to New England. Edwin helped us get the house staged with a live-in to help us with homeowners insurance as well as presentation/utilities etc. This was a huge weight off of our shoulders and helped us save a significant amount of money on vacancy insurance. He helped us price our unique home correctly for the market and regularly re-evaluate how we compared to other homes in the area to remain competitive. He was also instrumental in helping us get some home repairs etc. taken care of since we couldn’t be there to manage them. Overall we had a great experience and would not hesitate to recommend him to others in need of a realtor. Thanks Edwin!

I was looking for a realtor to sell my property in Texas, when I found Mars Hill Realty Group with Edwin Lui as the agent. I read all the reviews and decided to give him a shot. I explained that I live in California and would need to sell my house in Texas. He assured me that the transaction would be easy. It was fast, smooth and painless. He was very patient, personable and responsive to all my calls. Thanks Ed. Looking forward to working with you in the future.

Edwin Lui helped us sell our home in Round Rock, TX, and he earned “Five Stars” in every aspect of the process! Before our house even hit the market, Edwin showed great insight in how to effectively stage and list our home to attract the right buyer. He is extremely knowledgeable about the area and completed detailed research in regards to the comparable houses for sale and recently sold in our specific neighborhood. As a result, the feedback from agents who showed our home indicated that it showed extremely well and was priced right.
When we received an attractive offer on our home, Edwin conducted communication with the buyers and their agent in a highly professional manner and was quick to respond at every point in the process. He again showed great insight in how to negotiate and land us a solid contract.
In short, if you are looking to buy or sell a home in the Austin, Texas area, Edwin should be your top choice. In addition to his professional expertise, he is hard-working, conscientious, and very personable–all qualities that were pivotal in the success of selling our home!

Edwin had the knowledge and talent I needed. After three failed attempts to sell my house I requested Edwin to help me sell . It was the best decision. Thanks to Mars Hill Realty.
– Sylvia Moreno
Both Edward and Edwin did a great job in helping us sell our house. We worked primarily with Edwin throughout the entire process. Edwin recommended we get a pre-sale inspection of our home, which initially seemed like an additional expense, but in the end I believe it was the best investment we made during the sales process. It helped us uncover items that might have been considered “show stoppers” by prospective buyers during their own inspections further along in the contract process. With our inspection in place and available to prospective buyers, we were able to more effectively disclose all known problems and improve the initial negotiations. Edwin’s negotiation skills were awesome. He helped us maximize our profit, which I am convinced we would not have done on our own. I highly recommend Edwin, Edward and Mars Hill Realty.
– Stan and Sandra Gowen
Excellent performance by Mars Hill Realty throughout the selling process that continually exceeded our expectations. Their efforts in generating “buzz” through their contacts and inside knowledge resulted in us receiving our full asking price after only six days on the market. This was after our first offer at 48 hours, an average of two to four showings per day, and succeeded by a back-up offer for even more than our asking price. Their sound advice at each critical juncture resulted in our house selling for the highest amount per square foot since 2006, and the second highest amount in the past sixteen years of MLS records for our neighborhood. If you are considering selling it yourself like we were – don’t. We made more money selling with them, even after their commission, than we would have on our own.

I have worked on two short sale deals over the past three years with both Edward and Edwin Lui and these guys have been nothing but professional, responsive, and trustworthy to the hilt. I would recommend them not only to my Mother-in-law but even my own Mother (haha). Since I live in California and the properties were in Texas they handled my property management as well as the sale, negotiating with the banks and handling everything from start to finish! Truly professional and I appreciated everything did for me through the whole process!

Moving from California to Texas was a big decision for us. We initially signed on to several realtors’ websites. When we decided to come out for a visit one realtor never got back to us and another told us to “stop by”. Only Edward Lui from Mars Hill Realty went out of his way to meet us. He asked us questions, listened intently, and took notes to narrow our search. Both Edward and his brother Edwin showed us homes and took pictures inside and out so we could review them later. Once back in California, we continued our search and any questions we had were always answered the same day. They even took additional pictures of properties for us. We bought our dream home because of Mars Hill Realty. Our dream home was listed with Mars Hill Realty about a year previously. Edward utilized a video walk though which showed off the floorplan and many features. But the house sold quickly and we were not prepared to move. A year later we found our house by chance listed with another realtor. We recognized it only by the address as the pictures were dark and unrevealing. Edward acted upon it immediately negotiating for us a fair deal. All paperwork was handled through email. It was that easy. Since our move, Edward has been a great referral source for painters, handymen, roofers, etc. We highly recommend Mars Hills Realty for anyone in the market to purchase or sell a home whether you are local or out of state like us!
– Terry and Carol Hudgins
Edwin was awesome he really helped us a lot we were moving from Florida to Georgetown site unseen he went out and took pictures for us and everything.
– Sara Woods
We have sold a home through Edward/Edwin and bought a new home in Austin quite recently using them as our buyer agents. They are responsive, professional, and assertive agents, and approach all issues with a strong sense of urgency. They would never give us an “I don’t know” type of answer, if they didn’t know the answer to a question we had off the top of their heads, they would quickly find the necessary information and relay it to us immediately. They are also quite personable and great agents to have on our side.
– Michael and Paula Dean
We really appreciated the prompt returning of phone calls. We would no sooner hang up after leaving a message when my phone would ring and it would be Edward, always eager to assist. We would recommend Edward to anyone!
– Howard and Melba Springer, 5 year Georgetown residents
It was a pleasure for Kay and I to have Edward as our Realtor. We’d hire him again!
– Terry and Kay Spinelli, East West Ministries – Director of Global Missions
We are grateful to you for the work you did to get us here. You really went above and beyond to make everything go smoothly. We love it so much here in Georgetown we are trying to get all of our relatives and friends to move. We will let you know as soon as we convince them.
– Laura and Allan Schrillo, Relocated from California
Ed is the best! Thanks for patiently putting up with us: You’re awesome and I know the Lord is going to bless you greatly!

Edward was wonderful. He was very easy to work with and always available whenever we needed anything. The best agent we have ever worked with. I would highly recommend him and would use him again.
– Krista and James Olszewski, Georgetown MOPS (Mothers Of Preschoolers)
I have decided to name my future child after him.
-Matthew and Christina Stanley, US Army Commander (and aspiring comedian:)
(He named his dog “Louie” so I guess that’s close enough. – Edward)
In just two months, we bought our custom home and had a committed buyer on our old house. All of this was done through Edward’s diligence and hard work. I’d recommend him to anyone!
– Kate and Art Rodriguez, Georgetown MOPS; 6 year Georgetown residents
This was our first home purchase and we were like fish out of water. We felt confident that Edward was knowledgeable in the real estate business and he had our best interest at heart.
– Debra and Wallace White, Scott and White – Neonatal nurse
I must say working with Edward was a wonderful experience. Even though we had listed a low-end condominium for sale, I felt that as if Edward still treated us as if we were a high-end dollar client. He seemed to go the extra mile in helping us sell our unit. All phone calls and questions were quickly answered. Also, we felt like Edward thoroughly researched the area to price the condo accordingly. I will definitely recommend Edward to family and friends, and it will be a pleasure to work with him again in the future.
– Chris and Jill Henderson, Dell
We want to thank you for your help finding us a home. You were 100% all the way. We couldn’t have done it without you especially coming from California. Thank you! Thank you!
– Tok and Linda Nagano, Albertsons
Thank you so much for your patience and help throughout the process. Thanks!
-Rebecca Cunningham, Relocated from Dallas
Thanks for all your help and many showings! We still need to get together for B-B-Que! Your service was a [perfect] 5 across the board. Thanks for your patience while we picked just the right one for us. My brother might be interested in some land near the Austin area. As soon as he is ready to commit, I’ll give you a call. Thanks again!
-Kenny and Amy Klinger, Relocated from Alaska
Edward has been an invaluable resource as a real estate agent and consultant who helped us identify and negotiate for our Executive-style home. We were undecided about whether to custom build or buy an existing home. Edward helped us to make that decision by bringing us together with the best local builders, architects, and designers and constantly updating us with the latest Executive home on the market. His in-depth market knowledge helped us to understand the true value of property we owned and we sold it in less than 30 days! I have used many real estate agents in the past, but Edward Lui is definitely “the Realtor to hire” and I would wholeheartedly recommend him to friends and family anytime!
