Testimonials

“It has been an inspiration to have met you and collaborated.  Not only do you have tremendous integrity and compassion, but you surround yourself around people who never cease to learn and flourish in life.” 

"I have had the pleasure of working with Ellen and her team on numerous transactions over the years, and cannot recommend them highly enough.  She has a deep understanding of the Austin multifamily marketplace, and her creativity, work ethic and ability to see the big picture have helped immensely when faced with complicated or unique transactions on both the buy and sell side.  In addition to her being a consummate professional, I view Ellen as an even better person and her uncompromising honesty and ethics make her a valuable advisor to our firm."

"I have always enjoyed working with Ellen on past transactions and hope to do so again. In fact, in the 30+ years of my property management career, I have found Ellen to be the most experienced broker in multifamily investments in town and certainly the most amicable."

Ellen and the entire team at Muskin Commercial have been an invaluable resource as our company has entered and created a footprint in the Central Texas marketplace. Their guidance and support led us through a well informed entry into Austin, and their continued support and assistance has been unparalleled as we’ve continued to expand our portfolio.

"Ellen Muskin and her team at Muskin Commercial are truly a joy to work with. They are professional, courteous, and show the utmost respect to outside brokers and their clients. As such, I would absolutely recommend working with Muskin Commercial in the future because, above all else, you will be treated fairly, and you stand a pretty good chance of closing the transaction!"

It has been my pleasure to work closely with Ellen and her team since I started my career in real estate. She is extremely knowledgeable, straight forward and always puts her client’s best interest first. Ellen routinely provides real time data on multifamily rent growth, absorption, supply and sales to ensure we are equipped to make the best investment decisions. I look forward to continuing to work with Ellen and Muskin Commercial on future opportunities. She is one of the best in the business!

"'Consummate professional' best describes Ellen Muskin. We've enjoyed the pleasure of doing business with Ellen for over 20 years and value both her friendship and the exemplary service she has provided."

Muskin Commercial was a pleasure to deal with from the moment of the first offer to the close of escrow. We sold three properties through them and have never dealt with a more professional team. If we had more properties to sell, we would certainly go through her.

"Over the past 30 years I have had the opportunity to deal with hundreds of multifamily real estate professionals. My 20 year relationship with Ellen speaks for itself. She is a true professional! Ellen delivers the facts and works endlessly on behalf of her clients. I applaud the work ethic, honesty and integrity that places Ellen at the top of her profession!"

"Our company has purchased three apartment complexes from Ellen in the last two years. Ellen is the best broker I have worked with in over my 40 years in the business. Her hard work, business knowledge and closing experience puts her at the top of my list."

"Alori Properties has worked with Ellen Muskin for many years both as a buyer and as a seller. At every turn, Ellen was exemplary, and everything was handled with perfect professionalism. Ellen has extensive experience in and knowledge of the multifamily market that gave us the great comfort of knowing we were getting the best advice. Best of all, her careful touch in smoothing over the potential landmines in the negotiating process kept several transactions alive that otherwise may not have made it to the closing table."

"You and your team have been a pleasure and real pros. Please help us find another opportunity."

"Ellen is an honest and trusted adviser. She always has fresh ideas and will take the time to 'understand the story' and craft a winning solution."

"Ellen has handled several deals over the years for me and in every instance the relationship was excellent. She simply is the best at her profession. She has the 'it' factor."

"To each transaction I’ve had the pleasure of working on with Ellen, she brings her extensive knowledge of the apartment market, an intense attention to detail, a true appreciation of her clients and the highest level of ethics. And she does it all with grace and a perpetual smile."

"Muskin Commercial displayed the utmost professionalism throughout the closing process of our recent acquisition of one of their listings. They are precise in their approach, extremely pleasant to work with and ethically sound in their dealings. Ellen and her team go above and beyond the call of duty and deliver results!"

"Whether you are buying or selling, Ellen is a trusted adviser and always represents her clients' best interests. Ellen has earned a reputation as one of Austin’s top multifamily brokers and she is a pleasure to work with!"

"I like to think of Ellen as someone akin to Henry Clay (The Great Compromiser), but in more of a real estate sense. In a past transaction it felt as if both Buyer and Seller were at an impasse. She addressed a complicated situation from a new, creative, veteran perspective which added value and allowed both parties to walk away happy and successful. That's what you want in a Broker."

"Ellen Muskin is one of the most honest, knowledgeable and enthusiastic people I have ever dealt with in the real estate business. She is a true professional. Without a doubt, Ellen is the top apartment broker in Austin and has been for over twenty years. I highly recommend Ellen to anyone looking for real estate opportunities in Austin."

"Over twenty years ago I was introduced to Ellen Muskin by my real estate attorney as the person to work with in the multifamily market in Austin, Texas. Since then she has represented me in both the buying and selling capacity. She is a true professional unique in her ability to cover all the bases while working closely with both buyer and seller. Her comprehensive experience and innate negotiating skills together with a sharp sense of humor makes for a delightful and very positive working relationship.

From start to finish she reflects an honesty and integrity that is refreshing and makes for a positive relationship with all parties during and after the deal is done."

"Regardless of whether you are a national real estate company or a one-property owner, Ellen can bring value to your transaction. She's honest, hard-working and an absolute pro at what she does. On top of all that, she is a joy to do business with."

"I have been working with Ellen Muskin since 1993 and I cannot say enough about my experiences with her over the last 20 years. Ellen defines what it is to be a real estate professional. The combination of her expertise, integrity and enthusiasm is unmatched. Ellen is certainly our 'go-to' real estate professional and I highly recommend her to anyone."

"Our real estate investment company purchased our first apartment property through Ellen Muskin in Austin in 1993. Since then we have purchased eight properties and sold six with Ellen's invaluable help. Her professional skills and talents are without equal.
