Broker Associate


Buying or selling a home is one of the most exciting yet stressful activities you may face, so it helps to have a confident, skilled, and passionate professional on your side – all of which you’ll find with Elle. Her work ethic and dedication to her clients is unparalleled. As a listing specialist, Elle will help you market your home effectively to get you the most amount of money in the least amount of time and work to negotiate the most favorable terms for you. As an accomplished buyer’s agent, Elle will listen to your wants and needs, suggest properties that meet your criteria and budget, and guide you through the process to get you into your new home. Whether it’s your first purchase or sale, or you consider yourself a savvy investor, Elle has an established and consistent approach to help you achieve your goals.

Elle made Austin her home in 1996 when she transferred to the University of Texas. After earning her degree in 1998, she dedicated six years managing the original Alamo Drafthouse Cinema downtown. Having been in the restaurant business since she graduated from high school, by 2003 Elle was eager for a change. Customer service is in her blood, so real estate was (and is) a perfect fit. Excelling in her first year, Elle became the Sales and Leasing manager of her office and juggled hiring and training new agents while building her business. However, in 2010, Elle made the move to Realty Austin to focus on what she truly loves to do: helping clients. Whether you’re interested in buying or selling, Elle has the patience and expertise to walk you through every step to a successful closing. 

A native Texan, Elle loves everything our Capital city has to offer – live music, hiking with her husband Brent and their pups, cycling, swimming at Barton Springs, and of course Alamo Drafthouse. She’s run three marathons, the Pike’s Peak Half Marathon, the IronStar Triathlon (half Ironman), and in 2015, she and her husband took a 10-day running trip to Morocco. All her training demonstrates her perseverance: Elle will always go the extra mile for you!

Elle Klein Garrison was amazing! I can’t say enough wonderful things about her. She made everything so easy and smooth from start to close. Anytime we had a question or concern; she was always on top of it. We had no idea what buying a house entailed, and she helped every step of the way! Thank you, Elle, you truly blessed us!

My wife and I talked with close to 10 Realtors before meeting Elle Klein Garrison at Realty Austin and immediately knew she was the right person to go with. As first time home buyers, Elle made us feel truly valued and promptly answered every question we had (and we had lots), between viewing homes, to making an offer, and finally to closing on our new house. Every step of the way Elle provided guidance and recommendations that saved us in time, stress, and money. We also had several interactions with other members of the Realty Austin team, who were all very courteous and professional. Overall I would highly recommend both Elle Klein Garrison, and the Realty Austin team as our experience with them was nothing but positive!

Elle was nothing short of exceptional. I lucked out into the best hands I possibly could have and feel so fortunate to have had her guide and ease me through the home buying process every step of the way.

Elle Klein Garrison was referred to me by a dear friend. As a first time homebuyer, I was skeptical about any real estate agent, but Elle quickly placed my anxiety at ease with her approachable and genuinely kind demeanor. Elle is patient, understanding, and so quick to zero in on my ideal aesthetic after just the second time of seeing listings together. She was a huge advocate on my behalf and is a forced to be reckoned with in the negotiation process! Elle ended up getting me exactly what I was looking for and a phenomenal deal! She not only made buying my first house in Austin manageable and stress-free, but she quickly became a very trusted opinion, and now I consider her a very good friend.

Since I’m no longer on air, I can finally show my support for people, groups, businesses and such without having to worry about bosses. This week I’ll be posting some of my favorite. If you’re looking for a realtor in Austin, Elle Klein Garrison is someone you have to consider. As a first time home buyer, she made the process simple, years ago. And she’s just a sweet, patient, all around person.

Since I still reside in my starter home, I have not worked with a Realtor since 1976 (that's a very long time ago)! Elle was spectacular to work with, primarily because her personality meshed with mine immediately. Sometimes in life, you get to work with people you like, sometimes you get to work with people who know what they are doing. Elle has both of those qualities and what a joy. She knew how to talk to me when I was seriously a wreck whether she knew it or not. Elle was always there for me if not right away, quickly after that. There were many things she did for me that I can't imagine another realtor doing. Her suggestions were on point and given to me in an assuring manner. I wholeheartedly refer Elle to anyone who needs a Realtor with knowledge and a heart.

Elle was amazing and made this whole process so easy and so quick, especially for a first time home buyer! I am in LOVE with the new house. I cannot thank her enough for everything, and I cannot believe how simple the process was. I was completely amazed and so thankful for that. Elle helped me find the perfect house, and I cannot thank her enough for helping me do this. I am in LOVE. Seriously, I am recommending Elle to anyone and everyone that is looking to buy or sell their home!

Thank you to Elle Klein and Realty Austin for making our relocation from CA to TX so easy. Elle was very patient, kind and easy to work with. Elle was able to take what was in our head and make it a reality; which could not have been an easy task! We are so thankful and extremely happy in our new home.

Elle Klein was professional in contract negotiations and met our family's timeframe to find our beautiful Austin area home. I will be happy to recommend her services to family and friends.

Elle was bright, energetic, knowledgeable and sincere. She could have easily 'ducked out' of showing my father and mother-in-law the house on a blustery Saturday afternoon, but she didn't. She came, she was patient and personable. A keeper to be sure. Hopefully, the home lives up to their high estimation.

I had the great pleasure of working with Elle Klein. I am a first-time home buyer and knew nothing about the process. Within a few months, I had found the perfect home and she was there every step of the way to answer questions and offer assistance! Even after closing, she continues to be a great resource. I am very grateful to have her as my realtor!

We were very happy with Elle and Realty Austin. Elle was everything we wanted and needed for a realtor in Austin. We live elsewhere in Texas, so her assistance and expertise in the process were valuable to the successful sale of our property. She offered helpful advice for preparing the property for sale and kept us informed every step of the way. She did far more than we expected! We would highly recommend Elle to friends in Austin and would love to cross paths with her again someday.

Elle is a rock star. We couldn't have done this without her. She had our backs and made everything easier to handle. Love her.

I can not recommend Elle Klein highly enough. From the first day my husband contacted her until yesterday when I closed on my house, she has been the epitome of a true professional. Elle was patient for five years throughout this arduous process. She has become a dear friend as a result of her caring nature and concern. Elle constantly made herself available to us to show houses and provide advice. She never gave up and made a promise to my husband before he passed away to make sure to find a house for me. Elle did everything in her power to keep that promise which came to fruition yesterday. We put our faith and trust in Elle, and she did not disappoint! She was absolutely amazing throughout our house hunting journey. I can't imagine having a better realtor or friend.

Working in real estate, I know a lot of great local Austin agents, but when it was time to hire a realtor, Elle was my first choice. I will (and have!) refer her time and time again to anyone I know that is looking to buy or rent in the Austin area. I truly can not speak highly enough of her.

We first worked with Elle in 2014 when she helped us find a house to rent. We had a few difficult hurdles to get around, and she successfully navigated each one. We had two 60+ pound dogs, one of which was an "aggressive breed" that was less than a year old. It was a struggle finding a place to rent that would allow our sweet pets, but Elle knew exactly what to say and do to secure us the home we really wanted to rent. We lived there very happily for three years, and anytime we had something to address with our landlord, Elle's suggestions and help were priceless. She never once made us feel like less of a priority for being a rental client.

When we decided to start looking to buy a home, it was second nature to call Elle. She had already earned our trust and loyalty. As first-time homeowners, she met with us and explained every last detail of the home buying process, and helped us come up with a "must have/can't have" list. She wanted to make sure we found a home that was exactly what we wanted. She toured many homes with us and provided honest feedback. Once she even told us, "There is no way I'm letting you buy this place," and showed us all the major issues our excited eyes missed, including a unleveled floor! We knew she was someone we could trust with such a large purchase. She was looking out for us all along the way.

We ended up building our own home in a new community, and Elle was to no surprise amazing with that process too. She worked well with the builder's sales manager. Over the seven months it took to build our home, she was there every step of the way, even when she underwent major ankle surgery. Because of Elle's help, the build went very smoothly. When we did run into one issue (the builder was trying to give us brick and not stone), Elle brought the issue up the ladder until it was resolved.

Overall, she's professional, personable, patient, and a go-getter. I'll trust Elle will all our future real estate transactions too. We can't sing her praises enough!

All I really have to say is that Elle was outstanding!!!  I know for a fact that we could have not gone through this process without her. She went over and above on numerous occasions. She is professional, extremely knowledgeable, resourceful, kind, considerate and overall a great person.  Realty Austin and I are both lucky to have her representing us!

Elle Klein was a pleasure to work with from start to finish. From our very first interaction she was friendly, patient and clear about the home buying process. She made challenging situations (ex. finding the right size for my needs, working with the best lender for my budget) easy to navigate by spelling out my options for me clearly and waiting for my decision. I felt like I was able to make informed decisions with her guidance and backing, yet, I never felt pushed or pressured into any one direction. Very highly recommended as a realtor. She truly exceeded expectations.

Elle was an absolute delight in every way; she knew her stuff, found solutions to problems we didn't even know existed and kept us sane through a harrowing process of purchasing a home. After going through several painful encounters with other realtors I found Elle to be a breath of fresh air.

Elle was diligent in helping us find the house of our dreams and for that, I will be forever grateful and a lifelong client.

Suzette L. Boston

Last summer when Elle and I met in Austin to look at houses, she knew I was not going to sign anything or even be buying at the time but yet she treated us as A+ clients. I was also impressed that she did not try to show me any house over the amount I gave her, not even a penny over.

I feel like she has gone above and beyond her job description. I really don't know what I would have done without her.

All in all, it was a most positive experience working with Elle and will refer her to everyone that needs a realtor. I consider her a friend and not just someone who helped me look for my home.

Elle was a pleasure to work with throughout my 3 month long process of finally purchasing my first home. As you are well aware, the Austin real estate market, especially in the downtown area, is extremely hot right now. As such, timing is critical each and every time someone attempts to purchase a property in the area. I viewed a total of 3 properties before finally purchasing, and Elle was able to arrange a viewing, write up a contract, and put in an offer on each property about as fast as was humanly possible, which I think is essential in terms of having the best opportunity to be the winning bid in this crazy market. Being a first time home buyer and being unaware of all of the unknown complications that come with condominium purchases specifically proved to be a challenge, but Elle was always there to provide answers for me, or put me in touch with the right resources to get the answers from. As I mentioned before, I was extremely impressed with how quickly she would get back to me with any questions or concerns that I had, and this was a huge comfort to me during this very stressful process. There were also numerous occasions where we entered timing critical situations where action was needed, and Elle always seemed to step up to the task and put in the extra time and effort well after business hours in order to make sure things got done as soon as possible. This was greatly appreciated. Finally, I think that Elle's strong resource base and business relationships with the various other individuals (loan agent, title agent, etc) that I worked with throughout the process proved invaluable in terms of me being able to receive their best efforts towards getting everything completed during what was a very short closing window in my judgement. I'm not sure if everyone would have been quite as willing to keep me as a high priority if I was working with a Realtor that they were not as familiar with or comfortable working with in general, and that is definitely important given the amount of back end work that goes into completing a purchase once a seller accepts a bid. Overall I was extremely satisfied with Elle and Realty Austin throughout the process, and would recommend both to anyone that I knew that was looking to purchase a home in Austin.

My experience with Elle Klein was wonderful! From the first call I felt completely taken care of and she answered all of my questions, doubts, etc. I will highly recommend her. Best real estate transaction ever!

We thoroughly enjoyed working with Elle and look forward to recommending her to anyone who asks. She certainly raises the bar in real estate.

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed working with Elle Klein. Elle's expertise allowed us to make the best decisions throughout our home-buying process - search, negotiation, and close. We highly recommend Elle Klein to anyone who wishes to work with a market expert.

Elle represented Realty Austin very well. She was on top of schedules and even helped with things that were probably not necessarily her responsibility. We enjoyed her as person and would recommend her in a second. Elle was outstanding!

Kevin & Lora McIntyre

Elle Klein was extremely pleasant to work with. She is very laid back and friendly, yet does not beat around the bush. She gave me information on housing units within my criteria and did not try to sell me on anything I didn't want or need. I very much appreciate her help and her honesty. I would highly recommend her to anyone.

Patrick Kainer

Elle is not only extremely fun to work with, she is also very professional. Of all the realtors we contacted upon our impending move to Austin, she was the only one who followed up with us and I truly felt we had someone with our best interests in mind-- someone on our team! Thanks, Elle, and I look forward to working with you again in the near future.

Blair Smith

We just got into our first wonderful home with the support and guidance of Elle Klein. She was prompt, transparent, and patient with us "first time home buyers." I was never late with any paper work, due to her reminders and she also gave us plenty of heads up on what to expect at least a week in advance. I will be recommending her to all of my friends and family.

Sarah Wright, Facebook Review

Elle Klein was extremely professional and helpful, and kept us in the loop about the searches at all point. My fiance was very impressed with Elle as well and found her very helpful and friendly. We actually moved into a place that Elle suggested and love it so far.

If we ever need any help or if our friends ever want to find a place we will definitely recommend her.

Rudresh Ghosh

Elle did a great job in assisting me in the purchase of a lot on the east side. It was a fairly straight forward transaction, but Elle's response in every case was practically instantaneous. She was also very helpful in assisting us in developing ideas to build on the lot. I would highly recommend her.

Wayne Huffman

We had the pleasure of working with Elle Klein and Realty Austin when selling our central Austin home, and have nothing but positive things to say about the experience. From start to finish, she was a model of hard work, integrity, and consummate professionalism. The ideal of professionalism can be easy to uphold when everything is going smoothly, but the mark of a true pro is the ability to maintain composure when things don't go as planned. In our instance, we were faced with what can only be described as a difficult closing due to problems with the buyer's lender. Elle faced the situation head-on, worked diligently and cooperatively to find solutions, and throughout the transaction maintained an attitude of decorum and creative problem solving that ultimately saved the day … and the sale. There's little doubt in our minds that without Elle as our agent, our sale may very well have not gone through at all. We would recommend Elle wholeheartedly, and truly cannot say enough about her character, integrity, and drive - whether a buyer or seller, she's exactly the kind of professional you want in your corner.

We could not be happier.

Chris & Julie Rorrer

As first time homebuyers, we were nervous about the whole process. Elle not only put us at ease with her hard work and professionalism, but she also got us excited about buying our home with her extremely friendly and fun attitude. She is what all client service-oriented professionals should aspire to be, and single-handedly made our experience one of the best of our lives.
