Fara has been living in Austin since 1992. She is a proud mother of a UT Graduate and a UT student. Fara and her husband of 27 years, Mo, own several local restaurants. Prior to Real Estate, she managed one of the restaurants for 4 years and also owned and ran her custom drapery and interior designs business.

Fara studied Art and Design. Her love for the arts transpires in her Real Estate work as she is able to help clients prepare and stage their homes to look more pleasing for sale, and assist new homeowners in transforming their new home, into their dream home.

Fara understands that buying a house and relocating is one of the biggest decisions in a person’s life and she respects her clients approach to this matter. She is super organized and prides herself on being available and open to answering questions anytime. With a high degree of professionalism, honesty, and boundless work ethic, Fara has built a strong reputation. To her, it's simply a matter of doing the right thing.

She has a bank of knowledge and experience to draw on with endless resources for her clients.

Her belief is that there are many qualities and skills that go into being an excellent real estate professional – to be patient, have in-depth community and market knowledge, effective negotiating skills and a high-quality professional network. All of which are hallmarks of how Fara works. In her experience as an Austin real estate professional since 2007, she also found that providing the very best service is essentially about putting her clients first. This means keeping herself accessible, being a good listener as well as an effective communicator, and responding quickly to her clients' needs. This “client first” philosophy has always been Fara’s approach and it requires continually improving her skills and ways of doing business for the benefit of her client. Fara is committed to finding the right property for you, no matter how long it will take.

In addition, Fara has said that, “I’ve found that with the latest technologies at Realty Austin, I can perform much more efficiently and extend my range of services to my clients. I’m looking forward to earning your trust, and only then, your business.”

Fara did a wonderful job. She has also been the agent who handled my brother's and parent's home purchases as well, and the whole family loves her. As far as my home buying experience is concerned, I couldn't be happier. She was helpful, friendly and most importantly she communicated with me very well.

Fara contacted me almost two years before she helped me find and close on my property in Round Rock. She was responding to me after my visit to the Realty Austin website. I explained to her the long term nature of my planning process. Fara was engaged and helpful during the entire period leading up to the purchase, spending time showing me around during my initial exploratory trip to Austin last Summer, and on my second trip where she found the perfect house. I could not ask for a more devoted effort. Fara exemplifies customer service, and I would recommend her to anyone who is looking for a house in the Austin area!

Working with the team at Realty Austin was a wonderful experience. Our agent Fara Kosari is a warm and friendly person. She treated us like her own friends and helped us find a beautiful home for our requirements. She always answered our questions (a lot of them) with a smile. She responds promptly to all the phone calls and texts, and she has a team that is very efficient and detail oriented. Overall, we were very happy with the agent and her team. We would highly recommend them to all our friends.

Fara is amazing!! Very knowledgeable and has great advice. She is so personal that I felt like we became such good friends and would love to keep her as a friend even after the sale. I felt like she always put my family and I first. She was always communicating with me before, during, and after the sale. She was very professional and did everything by the book. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a home and if I ever am interested in buying another home, she will be the first one I call. Realty Austin is very lucky to have her on your team and I feel very lucky that I have made a new friend. I just can't say enough about her! Truly an amazing person and Realtor!!

Fara helped my wife and I search for a new home, purchase it, and then sold our old one. Through her extensive network of Realtors and contacts, she was able to show us listings before they were listed on MLS. She always answers the phone when I called or returned my call within a few hours. Fara is warm, friendly, and very smart. She is direct and to the point. That comes in really handy when she goes to negotiate on your behalf.

She found us a great home that was under market value and a great deal. When selling our house she gave us recommendations on what small upgrades to make to get the maximum return. After 3 days on the market, we had THREE offers on our house! Whether you are buying or selling, I cannot recommend Fara Kosari enough. Thank you, Fara!

Great agent and team! If you are looking for a smooth and pleasant experience, buying or selling, talk to Fara at Realty Austin and her team. During the first conversation, you'll quickly realize that Fara is not only very passionate about what she does, but also extremely professional, detail oriented, prompt with communication, and super friendly.

In one of the most competitive markets in the nation, Fara understands what it takes to get you into the house you want, very knowledgeable of Austin market. In addition, her team at Realty Austin, particularly Anastasia, is fantastic, made everything seamless and extremely efficient for all parties involved.

She always made me feel like I’m her number one priority, my best interest in mind. She is not pushy, always accepted my decisions and incredibly helpful in bargaining with the seller.

If you want one of the hardest-working people you'll ever meet working for you, you want Fara and her team on your side. They're amazing at what they do, and I don't say that lightly!!

Fara's support was incredible. Since we started searching for homes online to get an idea of the market she was really attentive in following up and making sure she understood what we were looking for. Her fast response and availability made it very easy for us to look at places during the weekend and in the evening to adjust to our schedule. Fara made the process straight forward and took care of all the closing paperwork from start to finish while providing guidance during each step.

It was a pleasure to work with Fara. She is very professional and treats people fairly. The property that we bought is somewhat unique, and there were many questions and issues. Through all these issues, Fara was very patient and professional through the final closing. I would highly recommend Fara to my friends who want to buy or sell their houses.

Fara Kosari our realtor worked with us and went out of her way to find us the property that meets with our specifications. She is extremely professional, her continuous follow up made us get to our final choice in two days. We highly recommend her and would use her skills in our next investment opportunities.

What can we say about Fara Kosari. Fara has helped us finding and buying our new house. She is the greatest realtor ever. She takes time and great care of her customers. Fara was extremely kind, honest, and knowledgable and helped us find our house quickly, provided us with every single detail that we need and might need in the future. She went the extra mile to help us find a home that fits us. She is still answering questions and helping us after our transaction went through.

I really appreciated all of Fara's guidance and emotional support in our recent home buying journey. We are so happy and proud to have Fara as our realtor and we highly recommend using her on any home purchase.

Fara has been amazing with me. She worked very hard and diligently selling my house. She organized two open houses which definitely helped sell the house quickly. The closing transaction went smooth and even closed two weeks before due date. I highly recommend her to my friends and would use her services in the future.

We are really happy that we worked with Fara. She is a rockstar and we have never ever had such a good Realtor. If and when we decide to pursue another home it will be with Fara again. She was always present, returned phone calls immediately and worked 24/7 in order to find us what we wanted. She was honest about her assessments and gave spot on pro's and cons about the properties that we looked at. Fara left no stone unturned and we feel lucky to have found her.

During the process of finding home, our criteria changed at-least 3 times. Both me and my wife had different ideas but Fara's cool and calm personality along with her analytical ability helped us to see the bigger picture. She even helped us get connected with different services which has really made the experience of owning a home easier for us. We wish Fara best of luck and are looking forward to working with her again. Over all I would rate Fara 11/10.

Fara is very professional realtor, she committed to provide service with the highest level of customer satisfaction. I recommend to have her in your side when buying or selling a home.

Haidar Hamoud

Fara is truly amazing and I cannot recommend her highly enough. We are from Chicago and were looking to buy a condo in Austin for my daughter. She went above and beyond in so many instances I cannot list them all. From seeking out a condo with our exacting needs to negotiating with seller, handling all the documentation, inspections, repairs to finding us a lessee and again negotiating, documenting, and qualifying interested parties. She found us great repair folks, lawyers, and so much more. She took a personal interest in our situation and despite being a long distance, complex deal, she was so professional and kind. Trust me, she is the real deal, and first class all the way.

Ken Kailin

Fara is one of those people that you become comfortable with immediately, but do not let that belie the fact that she is a steely-eyed business woman. Her ability to price, market, and turn a piece of property is second to none, and of course all the while, she will make you feel like the most important person in the world. She can amazingly balance professionalism with a personal touch, and as such would highly recommend her.

Jeffrey Fry

From the moment I and my husband met Fara, we felt comfortable and confident that she would be the person to work with in finding a house in Austin, as she was friendly, organized, prepared, and professional in every way.

We were under no pressure to buy, as we still had our home in Harlingen, TX, but did want to find our future retirement home in Austin. We traveled to Austin over many months visiting our sons, and Fara was always available to meet with us and show us current properties. Whenever I called her, she responded in her wonderfully enthusiastic and friendly voice, and was willing to search as long or as far as we wanted to, being patient and going out for long periods of time or several times in a row to look at houses. Driving home to Harlingen from one of our Austin trips, Fara texted me that she had found “the perfect house”. We looked it up online and it was just what she said—perfect. Out of our 16 criteria, it met 15! Within a matter of days we had an executed contract!

When it came to dealing with our loan and all the many paperwork details, Fara took care of everything. She recommended a very competent loan officer who was excellent to work with, and between the two of them, the whole buying procedure went very smoothly. Her help and explanations of each step were invaluable, and everything was organized and prepared for the closing.

I highly recommend Fara as she goes above and beyond the expectations of a realtor. Her personal touch continued even beyond the actual sale of the house with housewarming touches and more. Fara is good hearted, honest, and hard working, and I would recommend her to anyone looking to sell or purchase a home.

Helen Fuller

It is with pleasure and gratitude that we share comments on our experience with Fara Kosari in the listing and sale of our home. While we have bought and sold a number of houses, we have never before encountered such a level of excellence.

The experience at each phase of the sales effort was superior, such as innovative efforts in developing prospects, useful insights on pre-listing renovations/staging, effective showings and proactive facilitation during the sale negotiations/due diligence. All of these tasks, whether business-related or interpersonal, were accomplished with a noticeable degree of competence, humility, integrity and grace.

Thus, we highly recommend Fara Kosari for residential real estate needs.

Massey Wallace

I had the privilege of working with Fara as my realtor when looking to purchase a home in Austin. Fara’s knowledge about real estate is multi-faceted and she is most certainly able to do more than the average agent. I appreciated her ability to advise me post home inspection; and when a situation took place with financing, she was there to help and support me in every possible way possible. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Fara Kosari to any person who is looking to buy or sell a home, as well as seek her service in any of my future real estate transactions.
