CAREER PATH

Chris began her career as a microbiologist, but soon heard the call of real estate sales and never looked back.

She graduated to managing and mentoring other sales associates to the same high standards that earned her acclaim.

Chris’s association with Realty Austin brings her back full circle to her first love, real estate sales.

We are from Lubbock originally and began looking to move to the Austin area about a year ago. I got in touch with Chris, and she signed us up for regular emails about new houses and checked in with the status of our situation regularly. After everything was finalized, we ended up in an apartment for a few months, and she stuck with us all the way through until we were ready to look at houses. Her knowledge and experience made the process smooth and enjoyable, even when things were overwhelming. She worked to make sure we got the best pricing possible and that we knew exactly what we needed to accomplish. She was very kind and thoughtful to our girls and treated us with respect and sincerity throughout the entire process. My husband and I both loved working with her and would highly recommend her to anyone looking to move! We were truly grateful for everything she did for us!

Chris Heagerty was our realtor during our relocation to the Austin area. She was beyond helpful and prepared, lining up multiple showings during the short window we had for a home search. I highly recommend using her services when looking for a home in Austin, she was the most professional real estate agent I have used.

We recently purchased a new home with our fantastic Realtor, Chris Heagerty. Chris went above and beyond in helping us find exactly what we wanted. Her attention to detail and thorough knowledge of all things realty gave us the confidence to enjoy our home search, knowing she had our best interests in mind.

Chris was with us every step of the way. From finding a house that met all of our specifications, to walking us through the daunting details of loan applications, contracts, negotiations, and inspections. Purchasing a new house can feel like riding a roller coaster, but every time we had a problem, Chris had our backs and knew exactly what to do. She never made us feel awkward for asking questions and made sure we understood everything that was going on. Even after the purchase was finalized and we had moved in, she was able to help us sort out some maintenance problems that hadn't quite been fixed as promised. It has been such a relief knowing that we have someone we can trust in our corner and we couldn't recommend Chris more highly.

Chris Heagerty has been nothing short of incredible help over the past few months. We lived in Milwaukee and were just in the early stages of thinking about finding a more weather friendly location to spend time once retirement comes. We had heard great things about the Austin area and back in March scheduled a visit to begin to get some first-hand knowledge. I figured a real estate agent could be a useful resource, so I reached out to a business acquaintance who lives in Austin, and she introduced me to her agent, Chris.

On my first call with Chris, I was clear that we were not looking to buy but to begin to understand the Austin community. I told her I realized she needs to spend time with paying clients, but if she could spend just an hour or so with us while in town sharing some of her perspectives that would be great. Chris spent the better part of 45 minutes with me on that initial call asking questions and then came back a few days later with a proposed schedule to spend an entire day seeing Austin through her eyes. She showed several homes for sale so we could begin to understand what some of the different neighborhoods had to offer in terms of housing stock, etc.

Chris met us at our hotel and spent almost two hours providing an overview of the area, and then we headed out for the day to see seven different homes in different parts of the city. One of the things she picked up on during the initial call was that we’ve always lived in brand new construction, having built four homes and bought two other newly built condos. As fate would have it, one of the last homes she showed us during the showings was a brand new parade of model homes in the Hill Country north of Austin, and it just sang to us as we walked through the front door, feeling like it was built just for us. We came back two days later and signed a purchase contract.

That was the easy part. The hard work started the next day when we headed back north but needed a way to deal with the myriad of details that followed such as being present for the home inspection, pool inspection, the mortgage appraisal process, connecting with the utilities, working with the builder on a variety of punch list items, finding pool and lawn care service providers, etc. Chris became an extension of us and managed most all the details on our behalf. We closed on the purchase in mid-May but have not yet sold our home back in Wisconsin and are not here daily. With that, Chris is still actively supporting us, checking on the house regularly, retrieving packages off the front porch, collecting our mail, and generally doing whatever it takes to help in our transition.

In short, Chris has been much more than a Realtor; she has quickly become a trusted advisor, helpful concierge, and good friend. She has been an incredible ambassador for Realty Austin you should be very proud to have her on the team.

We recently moved from the Portland, Oregon area to Leander. We initially contacted Chris by phone with a general real estate question about the Austin area with no thought that she would become our local agent. She answered our questions and made a few follow-up calls to ask us about our planned move. I was initially reluctant to involve a real estate agent so early in the process and told Chris that I thought it was far too early to involve her. Luckily she didn't agree, and she became a valuable resource to us in the entire planning process.

We found Chris to be responsive, professional, and personable, so we were not at all hesitant to share details of our upcoming move. I mentioned to Chris that we might consider a small short-term mortgage, depending on any price difference between the two houses. She put us in touch with a mortgage company, and we were able to take care of the application and pre-approval process before we left Portland.

Chris is very intuitive and went out of her way to learn our needs and used the technology available to her to send us customized emails of available homes. At one point, we found a house online that looked like it met all of our needs. We asked Chris about it, and she went out of her way on two different days to spend considerable time investigating, videotaping, and even taking measurements of the home for us. We determined, with Chris's help, that it wasn't the home for us, but we were amazed that she took that much time to do the legwork for us. Chris kept in constant touch with us and was immediately available to assist us as soon as we got into town. She spent hours going through listings and arranging our homes tour that eliminated any waste of time and frustration. We found the home for us, and are now in the process of getting settled.

We truly enjoyed our relationship with Chris. We felt that she always had our best interests at heart and was an absolute pleasure to get to know in person. Chris is organized, extremely responsive, professional, and knows how to do her job. This was the first home we have purchased in quite a while, and she helped us to avoid some pretty significant snags in the confusing purchase process. Dianna and I would give Chris four thumbs up, and wouldn't hesitate to recommend her assistance to family or friends in the future.

Our experience working with Chris Heagerty was exceptional. Her professionalism, kindness, and knowledge were exactly what I was looking for in a real estate professional. She worked very hard for me and helped me navigate the fast-moving market in Austin. It was really nice to work with someone that knew her stuff! Chris is a class act. I would be happy to recommend her to anyone searching for real estate in the Austin area.

We enjoyed working with Chris. She is the consummate Realtor. Her professional demeanor doesn't detract from the personal touch she also provides. I’ve known Chris for a few years now and have always been impressed by her take-charge spirit and organizational skills. Those traits are what led us to ask for her help in finding a new home.

My husband and I had been planning to do a major renovation on another house. The process came to a halt before we ever really got off the ground, and we decided to buy instead. It seemed like a daunting prospect to me after months of working with architects, potential GC’s, and a designer. Chris calmed my fears with her no-nonsense, kind-hearted approach. Coupled with her intuitive questions and ability to listen were the drive and knowledge to get us into the right house. The process was relatively painless, and we are the proud new owners of a home better suited to our large family, with the added bonus of being in the right neighborhood for the schools we wanted. I highly recommend Chris Heagerty for all your real estate needs!

I had an awesome experience with Chris, and she exceeded my expectations. I am fortunate to get Chris to help in buying a house for my family. Chris made buying house easy, she guided us at every step. My family likes her. My husband, my kids and I were in CT and wanted to relocate to Austin. I was waiting for my job approval to buy a house in Austin. In the meantime, I searched on Google for homes to buy in Avery Ranch and came across Realty Austin and eventually Chris was assigned to help me in this journey.

She understood my requirement and set up a portal with search filters. We are not first time home buyers but new to Texas. She also helped me in finding a rental house but later, I changed my decision and moved to an apartment for personal reasons. She handled the rental lease cancellation. The important thing to note is, I didn't sign any agreement with her, in my past experience I had to sign a contract before getting any help from a Realtor. After we moved to Austin and settled down, we met Chris in person, we discussed the action plan and started showings. It was a fun experience, and my kids like talking to Chris, while we were busy with showing, Chris would keep my kids busy. Later on, my in-laws joined us, and Chris was friendly with them too. We all like her, she likes her job and works hard.

Initially, we wanted to go with a resale, and later we also checked new construction. Chris handled both, I felt her like a family member than a Realtor. She is honest and smart and very experienced. When we made our first offer, we didn't want to pay more than market price due to competition, Chris helped us in getting the house at the price we asked for with smart move. My kids are so happy, and we will be moving to the house soon. We highly recommend Chris.

We could not have found a better representative and Realtor to assist us with the purchase of our home in Sun City. Chris was always "pro-active" and professional throughout the entire process; from start to finish. I would highly recommend Chris to friends or family looking to relocate in the Austin, Round Rock, and the Georgetown area.

Chris Heagerty is the best Realtor I have ever had and will use her without a doubt next time. From sourcing the property I was looking for to not wasting my time with ones that were either out of budget or not within our spec, she helped us close with a fabulous purchase price. Chris recommended a survey on a new build (we did three in total as we found lots of faults by the builder which would have been very costly at a later date if not found), suggested very good surveyors for us to contact, contacted the builders on our behalf, checked on the house build and sent us photos and videos (we live in California). Anytime we flew into Austin for a meeting and Chris was always available and worked around our schedule. She responded to questions and requests quickly and overall Chris is a true professional that is passionate about what she does and made sure we were stress-free with the purchase. Chris treated this home buying process as if it was her own home purchase. I will use her for any sale or purchase in the future, Chris is awesome!

I was recently a resident in the Chicago land area and my husband and I wanted to take a visit to Austin to look at homes in and around the Austin area. Without finalizing any plans I submitted a form on the website to have a realtor contact me. Immediately I was contacted by Chris Heagerty who listened to my home requirements and was very delighted to assist. When it was time to visit Austin, Chris met us and had a very thorough game plan and had mapped out all the homes we were going to view.

Since my husband and I are very set on what we were looking for we landed at a builders model and began the process of building a new home in Round Rock in November 2017. After we had signed the paperwork we traveled back to Chicago and decided we should evaluate other builder options so I started my research on the internet. Poor Chris, we had her running all over the Austin area, looking at lots, reviewing builder options etc. At the end of December 2017, my husband returned to Austin and changed the plan from building in Round Rock to Leander.

We moved into our beautiful home in Leander Sept 2018. Chris had gone above and beyond my expectations and is really passionate about her work. She truly listens and offers solutions to any issue or problem. I would recommend Chris Heagerty to anyone who is looking for a top notch Realtor and a lifelong friend.

Chris has been a great help to me since June of this year. She helped me find a rental house first then helped me find and purchase my dream house. I have never seen a better Realtor (I had two for different homes before). She is very professional and always explained things to me with patience. Chris recommended me a lender who provided me the approval letter in half-day allowing me to make an offer for my favorite house. She helped me seeing 20+ homes before I decided the house to buy. Chris’s response to my text is always very speedy and was able to answer all my question. For rating 1-5, I will give her five stars without question.

Chris was a great partner in my efforts to secure a new home. I honestly do not know what I would have done without her guidance. She provided great advice and reassurance at every step of the way. Chris was attentive to every detail throughout the buying process, from the original advice on making the offer to the closing itself. Chris kept me informed on a daily basis and was very accessible, positive and knowledgeable throughout the process. Her research helped me understand the value of the property I was seeking, and she understood how it fit my needs. Chris was calming when I was stressed about some of the details in financing, and she was a tremendous help taking care of all the details for someone like me who has a grueling daily schedule. I can’t think of a better more qualified real estate agent to work with, and I look forward to partnering with Chris again in the sale of my current home.

Chris is a fantastic, professional, energetic, honest, trustworthy and knowledgeable agent. She carefully listened to us, understood our needs and always put our interests first. Chris constantly went above and beyond our expectations. We are pleased to give Chris the highest possible rating and enthusiastically recommend her.

Chris Heagerty was absolutely the best Realtor we have ever had the pleasure of working with. We would highly recommend her to anyone looking to buy a home. She went above all our expectations. Chris previewed properties before she even met us and found us the perfect home. We were moving back to Texas from Reno, NV and she made the transition very easy for us and was with us every step of the way. We cannot say enough good things about Chris, and if ever someone wants a referral, we would be happy to do so.

Chris did an extraordinary job, and she is very professional. We live in California and being out of state; we had full confidence that Chris will pay attention to every detail from opening of the escrow to walk through and closing. We will soon move to our new home in Texas, and we not only found one of the best Realtors, but also a great friend.

Chris Heagerty exceeded our expectations as our agent during the entire process of our recent home purchase. She's made my wife and I both feel like family and has gone above and beyond in helping us find a great home. I warned Chris that it would be a very long and methodical process since we were first-time-after-a-long-time buyers. I knew it would take me quite a while (a year or more) to explore the market, line up financing, and refine our requirements before I was ready to start viewing properties. Chris was very patient, but also very adept at giving suggestions or checking in just the right time. She always gave us great advice, insight, and even referrals when we needed them, and she was brilliant at understanding both my wife's and my own preferences for our new home. Chris was fantastic working with us through the offer, contingent offer, counter-offer, inspection, and closing steps, and always there day, night, late night, and into the early hours of the morning to make everything happen. You won't find a harder working, more professional, more caring, or more capable real estate agent than Chris Heagerty, and we are truly grateful and blessed to have found her and to be now counted as not only happy customers but life-long friends!

We loved having Chris Heagerty as our real estate agent when we purchased our home in Lakeway, Texas. While we were still living out-of-state, I began online research of the housing market in the Austin area. Chris reached out to me and offered her assistance. Chris' guidance, suggestions, and support during our search for a home were invaluable and very much appreciated. She always had time to answer my questions and offered sage advise where needed. Through Chris, we felt like a good neighbor was helping us and was warmly welcomed to the state of Texas. We highly recommend Chris, with her professional aptitude and personable demeanor. Thank you, Chris, for helping us with the purchase of our home!

Chris is incredible. I know I'm not the easiest person to work with, and I imagine I was even more anxious and annoying with such a big purchase, but Chris made me feel great throughout the entire process. She made it feel like I was being taken care of instead of just doing a transaction. Chris is super knowledgeable about the market, very conscious of my wants/desires, and very direct in regards to what needed to get done when regarding financing and paperwork which is exactly what I wanted. Communication was always excellent and she was very thorough in taking time to explain all the nuanced stuff that happens for a first-time homebuyer like myself. Furthermore, my entire family are huge fans, and we look forward to keeping our newfound friendship going! I will be recommending Chris to anyone, and everyone who I hear is in the market for an agent!

Omeed Kazemi

I met Chris Heagerty when we were buying our home, and later, several rent houses. She is an incredibly good realtor who takes the time to talk with her clients and then thoroughly research the market for the houses she thinks would appeal to them in the location of their choice. She is willing to make suggestions as well as research the answers to any and all questions her client might have. 

Chris is fully cognizant of all the details involved in buying/selling a home and is extremely knowledgeable concerning all rules and regulations that must be followed. As a client, it is very reassuring to know that Chris will be making certain that one has all the knowledge one needs to complete sales efficiently. A new house is a daunting, as well as an exciting, time in one’s life! A fabulous realtor makes a happy difference!

Chris is a delightful person and a genuine pleasure to work with! I will always strongly recommend her to anyone I know who is in the housing market.

Jane Montgomery

Chris did an outstanding job every step of the way. This was especially so because we were moving to the Austin area from several states away and needed to find a great house quickly and arrange a closing that coordinated with a job move. Chris was extremely easy to work with, listened carefully to what we wanted and took care of every detail. We ended up finding a foreclosed property that was in the area we wanted and Chris worked through those details with the bank and we were able to close in the timeframe we needed even with the added complication of a bank owned property and the difficult complications that can entail. Her experience is first-rate and she was great in every way and my husband and I highly recommend her. Very professional and personable.  

Elaine Drake

Our experience with Chris as our agent was outstanding and stress-free. She was very patient with us, extremely knowledgeable and took us to see homes that were exactly what we were looking for. She guided us and worked with us through the entire process and we were so happy and pleased when we decided on our home. We would highly recommend her to all our friends, family and acquaintances.

Von and Suzannah Leal

Chris is a wonderful real estate agent who knows her neighborhoods.  A very professional agent, she is up to date on the changes in the industry. Whether buying or selling, you will be in good hands with Chris. She is fun to be with and will make your search a pleasant one. 

Gaynelle Lescher

Chris is a go-getter. If you want it done, go to Chris. Her knowledge of the Real Estate Industry is unsurpassed. I highly recommend her professionalism, work ethic and breadth of knowledge.

Sharon Reeves

It is a pleasure to write a recommendation on behalf of Chris. She is a bright, enthusiastic, capable, professional lady with an ebullient personality. She has my highest recommendation!

Robert Peirce

Chris’s attention to detail and follow through was exceptional and much appreciated.

Kathy Landis

Without a doubt, Chris is one of the most talented, hardest working, results oriented real estate people on the planet. Her expertise, integrity, and style are unmatched by most agents. I would highly recommend Chris to anyone.

Mark Antonowski

I found Chris to be professional and personal. She not only knows her job but she loves people and stands ready to help them meet their real estate goals whatever that might be. I would recommend Chris to anyone.

Robert Stokes

Chris is a caring professional, with attention to detail. Having a professional appearance, reliable and punctual. She is what I refer to as a NADOTA - that is my acronym means Not A Duplicate of The Average.
