What other parents have to say

Chesney Coker and his team had a Texas-sized challenge on their hands when we contacted them late last August requesting help to obtain Texas Residency for our Longhorn Daughter. Fortunately, Chesney was quick to act. Not only did he find us a beautiful home to establish domicile in record time, but we also closed without a hitch in less than 3 weeks. Thank you Chesney Coker and Tower Realty! Our daughter is thrilled to be a Texas resident and we are thrilled to have saved so much money with in-state tuition!

Chesney with Tower Really made the process of buying a condo in Austin very smooth. We are out-of-state buyers and he responded to any questions promptly even during the busy season. We highly recommend Chesney as a realtor and Anna for the property management for any buyers who are looking for professional services with a human touch.

Chesney and Tower Realty were a great resource for our family as our daughter moved to Texas and established residency there.  He toured us through multiple properties over a period of several months and ultimately found us the property that fit her needs and budget.  Not an easy task since we are out of state. He made his schedule fit ours and went above and beyond to help get utilities and everything set up for our daughter once escrow closed. Thank you Chesney!
