Dean & Julie - The Courtyard & Bastrop

We had two homes to sell (Austin and Bastrop) last fall and one to buy in Naples, FL and we could not have done it without Clift Bowman. Clift helped us buy those two properties 10 years ago and we have stayed in touch and knew he was the right realtor to help us again. Clift stays on top of the housing market and did a thorough market analysis for us on both homes to help us set the selling prices. We had decided to find our new home in Naples last August and he put us in touch with a Mother/Daughter team that knew Naples well. He got everything ready for the selling properties so we could move fast if we found our new home, which we did. He had the Austin open house the day after we returned and the offers came in shortly after that. His advice is "spot on" and when you reach out to him you know he will get back quickly. He is so patient, professional and such a good listener. We listed the Bastrop house after we moved to FL and he was a huge help taking care of that property, and it too sold quickly. We are so grateful to Clift and recommend him HIGHLY!

"Clift and I have known each other for over 40 years. I own a downtown condominium and wanted to lease the condominium and purchase a larger one in the same building. I reached out to Clift from receiving a high recommendation from a mutual friend. Clift helped me quantify a possible purchase price based upon very few comparable properties. The good news I was going to finance and the property appraised with two appraisals!


I cannot praise Clift’s efforts too highly. He did an outstanding job as my realtor both when I bought my condo during a seller’s market in 2016 and especially when I sold it during a buyer’s market in 2023.

Clift performed far above what I expected a realtor to do including working with me for five months including making significant repairs and improvements before putting on the market and advising me throughout the process.

Prior to putting on the market Clift helped me with the following:
• Advised and introduced me to an established company to help seniors like myself to downsize and move into a new apartment.
• My refrigerator was not working and advised me on a company to hire and determined the cost to repair was not feasible. Found a company to haul away for a nominal amount of money.
• Advised me on replacing my old dishwasher.
• Advised me and found a gas log local company to replace the gas log fireplace.
• Assisted me in hiring an exterminator as well as a “make ready” cleaning service.

Clift worked long and hard with the following various contractors:
• Advised me to hire a handyman to install new sliding glass doors.
• Advised me to replace my 20 year old HVAC system vs. repairing.
• When black mold was discovered in the master bedroom closet, HVAC closet, and bathroom Clift introduced me to a mold remediation and restoration company to complete the work. Honestly, when they completed the job the affected areas looked like a new.
• Clift arranged a plumber to repair the bathroom shower.
• In summary, these were many things that I as the seller might have expected to be responsible for taking care of myself, but Clift lifted an incredible load off of my 80-year-old shoulders.

Prior to closing Clift helped me with the following:
• Clift worked with the title company and the HOA to remove a lien that he HOA had on the property from the previous owner.
• Up to and during the week of closing he confirmed both plumbing repair and restoration was completed and sent me photos. The new HVAC did not cool and he worked with the HVAC company to clean out a drain that had been stopped up,
• Clift’s goal was for the buyer to be completely satisfied.

I highly recommend Clift Bowman to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.

Terry & Ruth Ann Buda, TX

Between my wife and I we have bought and sold a dozen homes always utilizing a realtor. Bar none Clift Bowman has proven to me to be the most diligent, forthcoming, pleasant, and knowledgeable real estate agent of all I’ve used. Clift makes the selling process enjoyable. He does what it takes to get the job done and follows up on every detail to the end. All prospective buyers were fully vetted. Every detail was tracked and inquired about as we neared closing. No delays allowed. Clift left no stone unturned. Every question I had along the way was promptly answered and I was educated as to the reason or the “real estate rules”. All of which made it easy for me to put my complete trust in Clift. I highly recommend Clift Bowman to represent your real estate needs. It was truly a pleasure working with Clift. The best at his craft, best in customer service, best in customer relations, best in customer satisfaction. Highly ethical and personable. We had a great experience. I highly recommend Clift Bowman.”

Steve & Elisa Circle C

"We used Clift in the sale of our Home in Circle C Ranch we had owned for 19 years. Clift was very knowledgeable, and assisted us from beginning the process thru to the final sale. Clift is very knowledgeable in Real Estate sales including all aspects of this. He was always 1 quick call or text away with a very rapid response with any answer we needed for any concerns that arose. We would highly recommend Clift in the sale of your property as he is very friendly, knowledgeable, easily accessed, and did a thorough job handling our sale."

David & Hui FM 2222/River Place Drive

“As a real estate investor, we set out to find a realtor who is professional and dedicated while attentive to our particular investment needs. Well, we got lucky and found such a realtor – Mr Clift Bowman.

Clift has guided us through very trying and sometimes frustrating purchasing/closing processes. We came to appreciate his exceptional knowledge and experience, combined with his willingness to go extra miles.

Clift, we cannot thank you enough for all of your hard work. We will be delighted to refer you to anyone who is looking for an exceptional realtor!”

Layne & Kim Travis Country & Village of Western Oaks

“Thank you for your consistent hard work and patience while helping us sell our home in Travis Country, while working even harder to help us find a new abode. Your direction and expertise with different neighborhoods was so important as we faced the decision to downsize. You helped us to be opened minded and made yourself available whenever we needed your advice! Your impeccable timing in finding our lovely Village of Western Oaks home allowed us to only move once! How lucky were we to close one day and find our new dream home the very next day! We feel blessed to have you as our agent, and even though we never want to leave our new neighborhood, I will highly recommend you to others who need an expert realtor.”

Ron Spicewood, TX

“Clift Bowman is the most knowledgeable and thorough real estate professional I have ever met. He assisted me on two separate transactions, helped me find the perfect home, and his attention to detail was exceptional – always keeping my interests as a priority in the transaction. The sale had a much higher rate of return than I expected due to his counsel.”

Wes & Amber Pflugerville, TX

“We worked with Clift for nine months while we built our dream home and sold our first house. We were impressed with his preparation and commitment for both transactions. He was on a personal vacation fielding offers and was able to lock in a buyer within one week. We didn’t feel pressured and he was great about communicating on the next steps in the process. We really benefited from his many years of experience.
His ethics are also great. He pointed out that his compensation amount on the contract was higher than the agreed amount. Who does that? We likely would have missed that with all the numbers flying back and forth at closing. We are glad Clift was recommended to us and will be sending our friends and family his way in the future. “

Dillon & Kari Ridgetop Subdivision/45th & Red River

“We enjoyed working with Clift. During our first meeting we shared with him a loft that looked very appealing to us. Clift took the time and showed us 25+ condominiums and townhomes within our price range to compare. After revisiting our favorites several times we selected a new home that is part of a condominium association in the Ridgetop area that offered a private backyard and reasonable homeowner’s dues. Thanks so much for all the help with the house. You made the process enjoyable and smooth for us.”

Gary & Mary Spicewood Estates

“We were referred to Clift by our accountant who works with us in our small business. During our initial meeting, I asked Clift many questions about specific neighborhoods and what was important for us and our two girls. Our primary focus was specific elementary and middle schools in the greater northwest area of Austin. We looked at many of the homes and actually monitored some that went under contract during our search. We purchased a home in Spicewood Estates that met our needs. Clift was very patient with us and helped us methodically think through each home as a possibility for our family. “

Mark & Deb Canyon Creek

“I met Clift over 20 years ago when we were both involved in several civic organizations in Austin. I had been renting for the previous 3+ years and recently married my college sweetheart after both of us had gone our separate ways. I shared with Clift that it was very important for me to be within a reasonable short distance of my two girls from a former marriage to continue to spend quality time with them. We looked at a variety of homes in the north central and northwest corridors. Clift’s attention to detail was stunning while showing us homes as well we appreciated his in-depth knowledge of the history of the developments. We were both fairly new to the Hwy. 183/FM 620 area and Clift took the time and showed us some homes in Canyon Creek subdivision. It turns out we fell in love with a one-story, David Weekly open floor plan located on a greenbelt and Clift put us in touch with a first rate mortgage broker. We enjoy our neighbors, the community swimming pool, and trails that Canyon Creek offers. We are appreciative of Clift’s efforts and see ourselves living here for many years.”

Liesa Lantana Subdivision

“I was attracted to Austin and moved here in August 2008 with my family because of the health awareness the community offered and the cultural diverse population. I was re-entering the medical profession after taking a sabbatical and met Clift at an Open House near Westlake High School. Honestly, I wanted to purchase a home but the neighborhoods and features that were important to me needed to be placed on the back burner as I establish myself in the medical community. Clift showed me variety of larger homes For Lease in Barton Creek, Regents Hills, and other comparable neighborhoods. Our family landed in Lantana subdivision in a three year old home located off of William Cannon and Southwest Parkway for now and each of my children are enjoying their own private bedroom. Clift assured me he would keep in contact with me and be ready when I am ready to purchase my home in the next year or so.”

Darlene Georgetown, TX

“I met Clift through a financial consultant and shared with him that I had consciously been working on reducing my debt and was ready to purchase a home. I work in Marble Falls and feel comfortable commuting 45 minutes each way so I could pretty much live in north Austin, Cedar Park, Leander, Round Rock, or Georgetown. Clift and I set out to look at homes several times in many neighborhoods. My twin sister traveled with us once and she helped me fine tune my search to the Georgetown area. I fell in love with a small, older home located only 1 ½ blocks of Clift’s great-grandparents home in Georgetown and actually went under contract on the home. Unfortunately reality set in after the Home Inspection and Clift worked with me to determine the home needed a lot of structural, plumbing, and electrical work way before I could consider some cute, cosmetic updates. Well, I ended up purchasing a newer home in a master plan quaint neighborhood within walking distance of San Gabriel Park. Yes, it was a learning curve; but Clift carried me through the process and I am thrilled with the end result!”

Chase & Charleen Lost Creek

“For nine months of outstanding service, tenacious effort, and sage advice on “a very unusual transaction” we thank you for helping us purchase our dream home. You will always have our gratitude, respect, and friendship (And Referrals!). “

Tim Rollingwood, TX

"As a native Austinite, Clift brings a lifetime of experiences and an invaluable perspective to prospective buyers interested in the Austin area. Clift intimately knows the neighborhoods, the school districts, the traffic patterns, the politics, and even the cultural flavor of each area, and is uniquely qualified to match each individual with just the right home suited for them. I've worked with Clift on two transactions in Austin over the years and can confirm that he's a true gem"

Mike - Sunfield in Buda, TX

Clift has been a great resource to me over the many years since he helped me buy my last house over twenty years ago. In this past year he has been extremely helpful and patient on my latest quest to purchase a home. Initially, my focus was on 40 plus year old south Austin one-story homes near William Cannon and Menchaca. I had been renting in the area and had become familiar with the best way to get to work as well as shopping at the local grocery store weekly. My landlord announced he was going to sell the home I was renting and would not renew or extend the lease for the short term. I put my home search on hold and leased a newer home in Rancho Alto off of Frate Barker. About that time a girlfriend came into my life and we mutually began to appreciate the larger and more spacious open floorplans of more modern homes. I re-started my home search with Clift six months later and focused on homes in south Austin and Buda that were built more recently. Clift provided fantastic feedback and insight at every home we looked at. As interest rates were climbing, I knew it was in my best interest to purchase a home sooner rather than later. We wrote more than one contract in this competitive market contending with more buyers than sellers. I also moved into a committed relationship with my girlfriend who also was an advocate in helping me in my search. Clift was great at adapting to my shifting priorities and needs. I just recently purchased a two-story home in Sunfield in Buda with the master suite downstairs. Clift provided fantastic support through the entire process. It would be impossible to overstate how much I appreciate Clift's patience, wisdom, knowledge, and expert guidance through it all.
