Lucky to have found Donna!

My late husband Jim and I lived in Briarcliff for 15 years. After his
death our house no longer fit my needs. I listed my house with Donna
Garrison whom I trusted and considered to be the real expert in Lake
Travis real estate. I followed her advice about pricing and marketing.
She sold my house in 2008 and saw me through the transition into my
new home in Lakeway where I am very very happy. People say " You were
lucky." I say, " Luck-no. I had an excellent real estate agent and I
followed her advice." But I was lucky to have found her!

"True Texan Hospitality"

Dear Morgan,

I would like to Thank You for all your help with our recent trip to Texas. I was very nervous with this trip, I wanted everything to be perfect for my son's return from Iraq. The Whitecliff Condo was everything I hoped for. The views from the condo were amazing. The condo was warm and inviting, but more importantly it felt like home. We could all gather together whether at the pool, during meal time, or just to relax on the balcony to talk about our day. We enjoyed time at the pool, a pontoon ride on the lake, swimming, exploring at Pace Bend Park, a Saturday night concert whilie dining at the marina,  shopping and dining in Austin. It was just what we needed as a family after a long stressful year.

Your bubbly outgoing personality "Sold" the condo rental. You were just so informative of the area; including restaurants, shopping, sighseeing trips and Austin itself. Your confidence in the Briarcliff community and all it had to offer was refreshing in comparison to other hotel reservation clerks.

Thank you for being "On Call" our first evening. We were so tired and lost that night, but when you answered your cell phone, it was a huge relief and we found our way with your instructions. The extra "TLC" and welcome you graciously extended to us gave us the feeling of True Texan Hospitality. Once again THANK YOU for all your help!

Saved our Christmas!

To Whom it may concern:
Donna Garrison is a bright & merry, hardworking sweetheart of a Realtor. There is no problem too big or complicated for her to tackle.

Last December my husband invited our college granddaughter & her friend to spend Christmas break with us at Whitecliff Condos. Unfortunately the owner of the condo decided that they wanted their condo back and did not want to extend our rental period. We rented an apartment in Austin at the Monarch but there was a misunderstanding and it was not furnished as needed. My husband and I were desperate.

Even though Donna was leaving on vacation she found us the perfect place 3 days before Christmas. She was our Christmas Angel! She found us the perfect furnished house on the lake, while driving us around in hail storms! I recommend her to anyone!

"Enjoyed Our Stay"


Last weekend we had the pleasure renting Condo #101 in the Whitecliff Complex. We were pleasantly surprised at the scenic view of Lake Travis from the condo's back porch. The marina where we rented our jet ski was very close to our condo. The condo itself was very clean and had everything we needed including  a washer and dryer. Our visit was very relaxing and we would definitely rent this condo again/

Thank you for helping us select our condo.
