Michelle Keahey - Bio

Native Austin Realtor® Michelle Keahey is a woman of many talents. From zero-scaping the garden to redesigning interiors; from photographing her travels to entertaining at home, she is known not just for her market expertise, but for her discerning eye and inspired taste. Austin’s unique real estate market, too, allows her to combine these skills in unique ways, making her both the go-to expert in buying or selling a house, and a trusted advisor in making it the best investment possible.

Michelle was raised in Austin’s Tarrytown neighborhood through her mid-teens, when she moved with her family to Houston. After graduating from Memorial High School and attending the University of Houston, she started her real estate career in 1988 with one of the leading residential firms in the country. Learning the business from the very best she worked closely in assisting top producing agents selling exclusive properties in some of the most affluent neighborhoods. From there she worked as office manager and sales assistant to another leading firm in Houston gaining more experience from the inside out. Michelle headed west with her real estate expertise to Midland, Texas. There she sold everything from raw acreage to ranching estates. Then in 1996, she returned to Austin as both a Buyers’ and Sellers’ agent until, in the year 2000, she saw the beginning of Austin’s urban renewal as an opportunity to be one of the first to sell downtown condominiums. That year alone, she helped close over $12 million in residential condominium sales as Sales and Marketing director of the LBJ Holding Company’s loft conversions of the historic Brown Building downtown. She has remained an annual multi-million dollar producer, and grateful Austin resident, ever since.

As her clients tell it, one of the best things about Michelle is her versatility. Her keen aesthetic sense and creative energy make her not just a Realtor®, but a specialist of the “total home experience”. Michelle has helped innumerable Sellers with remodels, landscaping and interior design, consistently yielding them sales prices ten to twenty percent higher than they otherwise might have realized. She’s also helped Buyers visualize not just what a house is, but what it could be, and how it might best be made to suit their needs. Her attention to detail and uncompromising service in every facet of buying or selling a home continue to bring her referrals—and high praise—from nearly everyone she works with, for years to come.

Of course, Michelle’s own home is one of the finest testaments to her flair for good design. Since 2003, she has continually worked to transform her 1928 cottage in Travis Heights into one of the most charming homes in the city, adding a master suite, a guest-house and an outdoor oasis. Her home has been features in HGTV’s cooking show, published in a coffee table book called “Texas Gardens” and was one of the featured gardens for “The Outdoor Living” tour. Most recently her home was occupied by Natalie Portman and her family while filming a movie here in Austin.  She shares this home with two very energetic English Setters and—graciously—with numerous guests seeking short term rentals for their vacation destination.

Michelle also loves to travel. Just recently, she took a long road trip up and down California’s scenic Highway 1, where she honed her photography skills shooting all the things that inspire her the most. With new ideas and inspirations Michelle looks forward to new opportunities and ways to implement them not only in her own life but for those she works with.

In the video below Michelle shares her knowledge of Travis Heights neighborhood and what it's like to live there as a local resident. To get more information about Travis Heights or Michelle, contact her through her contact form above.

Michelle Keahey - Testimonials

November 2013

Michelle Keahey was a pleasure to work with. She was extremely professional, helpful, patient, and knowledgeable. I am an out of town buyer and Michelle went out of her way to assist me. I couldn’t have been any more pleased. Thank you.

Tom Farley

Michelle was absolutely fantastic. She has thorough knowledge of the Austin market and in-depth expertise regarding the condition and quality we should expect for our budget. She had extremely helpful insights throughout the process and it was apparent that her interests and ours were one and the same. If she did not believe a house was right for us, she would say so, often pointing out defects we had initially missed. Michelle was a professional and a joy to be around. She was extremely patient with us and is now a friend! Fantastic experience!

Daniel

Michelle Keahey more than exceeded our expectations. This was our third go around with buying a house in the past 16 years. Michelle showed us what an agent was supposed to do to help us with organizing and scheduling everything. She always knew someone that could help and all of her recommended people were great.

Michelle was very patient and accommodating and she gave us our space when we needed it. I felt like Michelle listened to what were were saying too. I don't want to go through another move anytime soon but if we did, I'd call Michelle in a heart beat. Thanks for the fabulous experience. You really know what putting the customer first means.

Kelly Edwards

We have bought and sold numerous homes over the past 20 years and used different realtors each time. Michelle Keahey was far and above the best realtor we have ever dealt with. She was easily accessible when we needed her, professional, patient and ready to go to bat for us with a very difficult builder. We have never had a realtor come to a closing with us and it was reassuring to know she was there if we had any questions.

While I hope to not have to buy or sell for a very long time, if I do, I will absolutely us Michelle and plan to shout it above the rooftops to all friends in Austin that she is THE BEST!

Greg Hatch

We recently closed the sale of our home in Travis Heights with the thoroughly professional (and friendly) support of Michelle Keahey. We are very happy with the way Michelle managed the entire process.  

Michelle totally exceeded our expectations. She responded quickly to questions whether sent by phone or email. Michelle helped us prepare our property so that it would be attractive and easy to care for during the listing period. It sold quickly and at list price.  

We will most certainly be recommending Michelle Keahey to our friends and neighbors. My husband and I were very lucky to have found her!

Janice Hansel

A friend recommended Michelle Keahey after she'd sold his place. "Just do what she says," he said. We did and we couldn't be happier.

Richard Thomas, Facebook Review

Michelle recently listed and sold a condominium/ half duplex for me. Michelle has a sharp focus on the entire sales process, and worked hard to market the property, find qualified buyers and close the deal. She lives in the Travis Heights neighborhood and does a great job in selling the location. Our communication was clear. Michelle's passion for real estate makes her an excellent agent that I can readily recommend.

Don

I want to follow through with my expression of appreciation for supporting me in disputing the lowball appraisal on my house refinance effort. They did eventually alter/adjust the appraisal. I want to thank you again for all of your professional support and friendship over the years, especially during this time that I have lived in California.

Michael

I helped move my uncle of 92 out of Austin to be close to family. My uncle and family were left with the task of preparing a 1920's home for the market. We were out of state and when I traveled down to Austin from Maryland to oversee the packing of furniture, Michelle was there to meet with me. She arranged for an inspection, provided her market analysis, and asked for an independent market analysis from a colleague. The meetings helped to define the work to be done and I left Austin with a clear plan of action. Each time I hired a contractor to do landscaping, painting, or other work toward preparation for sale she was there to report on the progress. Although we were out of state Michelle was in constant communication and we always understood where we were in the process of both preparation for sale and the listing and closing process. This is only the second time I've sold a home but I can't image having a better agent in our corner than Michelle. She knows the market well, is very detail oriented, and handled the entire process professionally and with great care.

William Braisted

Words cannot express my gratitude for your caring professionalism and support in leasing my property in Austin.

Michael

I can't say enough positive things about how the sale of my home earlier this year was handled by Michelle Keahey. Here recommendations on staging the home for prospective buyers were invaluable and aided immensely in the sale (2 days) of the house. Listing the home was an effortless and quick process; additionally her insight to the local market enabled us to better refine our search in finding a new home.

I highly recommend Michelle as your realtor!

Her can-do attitude, enthusiasm, and attention to detail will ensure a pleasurable and profitable experience.

John Ashby

Hard to tell you how much we appreciate all the great work you've done in listing BR and marketing it for us -- the great pictures, the multiple trips out, and dealing with the squatter-problem, which should be soon over.

Couldn't have asked for finer service! a very lucky event when you came into our lives -- Thank you!
