Tell Us Your Story

Taylor went above and beyond to help us get through our sale and move.

He got our home listed and sold quickly at above ask. Then he helped set up movers, cleaners and inspection repairs. He even did some follow up with the new owners after the close. He was always professional and responded quickly to questions. He even helped us find a realtor in Dallas that helped ups purchase our new home. Could not recommend him more.

As first time homebuyers Trent was a wealth of information and a joy to work with.

He was on top of things making sure that nothing on the realtor side was falling through the cracks, but also on the broker side, which we needed. He was always available via phone call/text/email and did a great job of making sure we were comfortable and felt informed. And to top it off there was always smile on his face. I think it's as exciting for Trent to help find your house as it is for the homebuyer!

Not only is Casey my Cousin but she was very helpful in helping My wife and myself get our family land.

There were issues with the title and she walked us through every step and helped get everything in order. She is dedicated and she loves what she does. Not only is she patient, she wants what is best for you and your family.

We used Kristi Baker as our realtor when we sold & purchased our home/s 8 years ago.

Every year since, she’s dropped gifts off on our doorstep on random holidays. When we decided to sell this time, of course we chose to use Kristi again! Every milestone up through the day of closing she gave us small gifts to celebrate the journey. She kept us well informed with how things were progressing throughout the process! She’s a pleasure to deal with & always communicates well. We are so grateful for each & every time Kristi has helped us with the buying/selling of our homes & the experiences she’s provided!

Casey was our agent for purchasing our retirement home here in Texas.

We moved from out of state to be with family and could not have done it without her. She made sure everything from walk throughs to inspections were handled stress free so we could concentrate on our move. During what can be a very trying time for buyers, Casey's confidence through experience is very much appreciated. She is always in your court and goes over and above to take care of her clients. Truly one of the very best We have purchased many properties over the years and this one was seamless because of her. Thank You Casey!

Kurt M.

We could not be more grateful to have Trent as our realtor.

He went above and beyond in every aspect of our buying process. Trent stayed in contact with us and great communication, not only with us the buyer, but staying diligent with the sellers agent as well. We went through many obstacles and delays and Trent encouraged us all the way through. We were buying from another state and he made the process smooth. His thoughtfulness is top notch. He listens and addresses each and every one of our concerns. Trent was on vacation and he didn't skip a beat informing us about progress. He also help direct us to other team members that were helpful and were as dedicated. Needless to say anyone that is lucky enough to have Trent in their corner will not be disappointed.

Taylor is excellent all around.

When I moved to the Waco area I contacted 6 different real estate agents. All promised to keep me in mind when properties were hitting the market but none other than Taylor ever contacted me back. In fact, Taylor went out of his way to sit down with me, understand exactly what I was looking for, and then search for homes daily to see if anything he felt would be interesting to me was coming onto the market. When the house that I eventually purchased went onto the market, Taylor called me within 12 minutes. We were one of the first ones in the door for a viewing, and had our offer submitted that afternoon. Taylor had it all prepared and offered guidance throughout the process. When it became obvious that we needed to make changes to our offer in order to secure this property in the extremely competitive market we are in, Taylor knew what to tell us to do. Where he didn't know, he was up front and honest about it but made the effort to seek out guidance from those who would know. In the end, this humility to put us first above all else landed us our dream home on our first home purchase. We couldn't be happier and I will be selecting Taylor for any of my future home purchases in the area. I highly recommend to anyone, regardless or budget, to contact Taylor and give him a chance to help make your dreams come true too.

What a pleasure to work with Stevie Sheffield on the sale of my commercial building in downtown Waco.

She has a great reputation for being a highly professional, honest, resourceful, and knowledgeable Realtor. Many people may not be aware that Stevie is also very well-versed in commercial real estate transactions! Stevie marketed my property and almost immediately, had 3 key prospects who all submitted offers. In the process of working with the Title Company, Stevie discovered that there was a possible title issue. She was right, as she has a vast knowledge of Real Estate law, but she knew exactly what to do! One thing that I truly admired about her is that she will work diligently and tirelessly to get the best possible result- no matter what it takes – because she truly cares about her clients. Throughout the process, she went “above and beyond” anticipating possible problems and continually giving me good, sound advice and guidance. She also has a great sense of humor and is fun to work with! From the beginning, her expertise and knowledge gave me a feeling of complete confidence! And I was so glad that I chose Stevie because she saved me so much money by “smart negotiating” on the sale of a very old building that was structurally sound, but in disrepair due to asbestos, plus its age and a very long vacancy. I recommend Stevie Sheffield 100%!

Peggy L.

Kristi is a true professional, very hard working, always treats us with dignity and respect, extremely knowledgeable and honest.

We have used Kristi several times and have referred many of our friends and family to use Kristi as their realtor. She is the BEST that I have seen and will use her again if we ever need another realtor. Thank you Kristi for everything you have done for us.

Dennis Tynes

Kristy is amazing.

We eneded up taking our home off the market last year and she was super understanding. We actually relisted it in January and within a few days we recieved and offer. Kristy was great throughout the whole process.

Service wayyyyy after the sale!

! Trent Huffhines rocks!!! I texted, 4 months after our closing with a question and he did what he DOES..stopped, dropped and rolled out my answer on his way home at 8 PM!!! This man is simply the most amazing Realtor EVER!!

Christine H.

5 out of 5 stars.

Trent helped us sell our home back in April and he almost made the process easy. Going above and beyond does not begin to describe how well Trent took care of us. He was prompt, communicated well, and made sure we were taken care of. When I buy or sell in the future, Trent will be the first phone call. Thanks again for your hard work.

Austin L.

Taylor is great!

Was available at all times and help me close the deal when it was about to fall through on technicality. Helped me with the VA loan application and did everything to make sure it passed inspection. Highly recommended!

Josh S.

Taylor is a great advocate for us!

He helped us find the right amount of property in the area we were set on. Taylor has a great personality and is determined to make sure his clients fit with their purchase. Taylor stuck with us through our constant changes for over 2 years before we were able to finally purchase in the area we wanted. Taylor is loyal and he took care of us during the sale, renegotiating the price for us when unavoidable issues came up. Taylor is a family man so he understands life's challenges and how they need to fit in to our dreams. Thanks Taylor for a job well done!

Scott & Wendy W.

Casey was our amazing buyer's agent, here at Bentwood.

We just closed on our new home, stress free as she was in top of everything!!! From showing us homes, much patience while we decided, paperwork, advise, recommendations, late night questions and conversations, etc. Casey handled it with a great personality and timely manner! We appreciate you and your dedication, Casey! Highly recommend!!

Irma Zapata

Before choosing a real estate agent, I conducted a lot of research to see who would be the best choice based on the investment they make into selling the property (time and effort, not necessarily financially) and how they promote their listings.

Kristi was highly recommended, her social media presence was strong, and I could tell she put a lot of work into her listings. Kristi was excellent every step of the way. I thought our home would be difficult to sell, but it sold within ten days at full asking price! She is very knowledgeable and service oriented. She made sure all of our questions were answered promptly and took the worry off of our shoulders. She even took care of us after the sale when I left some things at the house. I cannot say enough good things about Kristi. I would rate her higher than five stars if I could!

Robin Hines

Trent was awesome to work with.

Even in a tough buyer market, he was always positive, listened to our needs, and found the perfect property. Thank you, Trent, for helping my parents and our family through this housing transition!

Suzanne B.

Swift & smooth beyond belief!

Barbie F.

Taylor made buying my home so much fun.

His transparent communication skills paired with his knowledge of Waco and the home buying process overall made the daunting task of finding and buying a home during a pandemic a breeze. He knows what he’s doing, and he will make sure you find the perfect property for your needs. Even after the transaction was over, I was still able to contact him with any questions or concerns. I cannot recommend Taylor more. If/when I need to find my next home, he will be my first call!

Abby H.

Trent was an excellent choice for our family.

Based on our needs, he went the extra mile to locate properties and assisted us with navigating areas that were unfamiliar. He is thorough and very knowledgeable. Listening to our concerns, he was always available to help locate a solution. Trent was a joy to work with and always worked for our benefit. Excited to have closed on a property and we have him to thank for that! Excellent agent, great guy, and we highly recommend him!

Rose L.

Kristi and her team not only far exceeded our expectations in the process of searching for a home but she made it fun.

She sought to find exactly what we were looking for and we couldn'tbe happier. She was kind and patient with us but completely professional. We look forward to working with her for any future property purchases.

Jacob & Liz

Taylor communicated every step of the way.

He was always quick to respond and very knowledgeable. I was buying a home in an area that I was not familiar with so I relied heavily on him and he did not disappoint. I would highly recommend him to anyone I know.

Bernadette P.

We are so thankful we had Kristi to help us in our home search.

She took the time to really understand what we were looking for and kept searching until she found the perfect home for us. We always appreciated her ability to look at the details of a house that we would miss as we were looking and highlight the pros and cons for us. We also really appreciated her advice when making an offer. House hunting can be stressful and emotional and it’s really easy to get caught up in all of it and make an offer that isn’t financially responsible. She made sure when we were ready to make an offer that we weren’t overpaying and was always looking out for our best interest. Can’t say enough about how thankful we are that we had Kristi to navigate us through this process.

Craig Dogger

We appreciate Kristi's professional approach in handling the the sale of our property.

Although we were over 2,000 miles away, Kristi was in constant communication and efficiently handled all aspects remotely.

Jeff Maynard

Kristi and her team were so professional and responsive.

We’d recommend them to anyone looking for a home in the area!!

Isabella Perennis

Trent treats you like you are his only client.

He figuratively holds your hand through the entire process. He made the whole process a joy. I HIGHLY recommend him.

Tom K.

Casey doesn't know how not to win!

She goes to the mat for her clients and doesn't stop until the deal is done. We will never buy another home without her.

Shawn Fyke

"Trent is a rockstar!

! He is on top of everything and is always quick to respond to our questions! He won’t push you to do anything you don’t want to do. He puts his clients first and does everything in his power to fight for you! Especially in this crazy market! It’s been a pleasure working with him!"

Carlie J.

We had a wonderful experience with Taylor, he was very professional and so helpful.

He helped us find our dream home. Thank you so much for all your Taylor!

Victoria M.

Trent helped me purchase my first home and I couldn’t have asked for more.

He was prompt, didn’t try to show me anything I didn’t ask for, and pointed out pros and cons of each place. I could tell he was trying to help me find the right home. I am very thankful I had a great real estate agent to help me through the process. Thanks again Trent!

Brayden S.

By far the best experience we have ever had from the first phone call .

Constantly kept us updated on every step of the way . My wife and I had recently suffered the tragic loss of our son to find someone like Taylor who has gone to bat for us every step of the way , and bent over backwards making sure we found what we wanted has helped tremendously, leading us down a path so we can start this new chapter we will be forever grateful for everything. Nice to see someone who loves what they do with such passion . Not just in it for another paycheck.

Seth & Arrin W.

God is so good!

We made an offer on the very first house we looked at and our bubbles were quickly burst when we were outbid by cash buyers. & it happened again after that. We quickly realized that God was in control of the situation. And let me tell y’all…I am SO glad we didn’t get that first house! God has provided even better than we expected! We’re so thankful for our friend and brother in Christ, Trent Huffhines, who was our realtor. He and his team were incredible throughout our journey to home ownership. 10/10! Five stars! Highly recommend!

Kristi F.

Kristi was a joy to work with!

Megan Bierle

Kristi is a terrific realtor.

She helped us selling our condo near Baylor University. Since we live in Maryland, she took care of everything for us, from taking pictures, making arrangement with our tenants for showing the condo to the prospective buyers, all the way to the closing. We never had to step our feet in Waco, all communications were handled remotely. She expertly guided us in every step from start to finish. She gave us invaluable advice and ideas throughout the process. Her experience and hard work made the sale an easy task for us. It was truly a great pleasure working with her. We would strongly recommend her for anybody looking for selling or buying property in Waco area. She is the best! Thank you Kristi!

Trent Huffhines, you are the best realtor ever.

From the carting us back and forth from West to Anna, McKinney, Frisco, Celina, Princeton, Melissa etc. to sitting in the lobby to get our money for us. JUST THE BEST. The only bad thing is that we don’t get to spend time with your great personality. I just hope the new buyers loves the ranch as much as we did.
