Holly McCormick

Broker Associate


Helping clients create wealth through the acquisition and sale of real estate is the very best use of Holly’s talents. Her past advertising and marketing background at one of New England’s largest advertising agencies (Arnold) coupled with her sales background at an Austin promotional products company for several years helped create the ideal person to help home sellers net the most money the market can bear and to help buyers get a great value on a home. Yes, Holly actually enjoys negotiating – and is great at it. She has been a Realtor® since 2003 and has consistently been a multi-million dollar producer since then.

Holly prides herself on being a strong negotiator, but also on being very resourceful during a transaction. Each purchase and sale is unique, and each has unique hurdles to overcome. Holly’s goal is to make each transaction smooth for her clients – so if there ever was a hiccup, they wouldn’t even know it because she’d get the problem fixed before it burdened her client with added stress. Her resourcefulness and fresh ideas have helped her make even the most difficult of deals come together as victories for both parties, and her unique marketing ideas have helped sell many unique properties for prices sellers have rejoiced about.

Holly’s passion is to help folks create true wealth through real estate. She doesn’t tell every potential seller to sell, nor does she tell every potential buyer to buy. She listens on a case-by-case basis, and then she advises in the best interest of the client. One should be able to leverage the power of creating wealth – without having to always work for our money. Our money should work for us as well – and it can!

An LSU graduate in 1998 with a degree in Mass Communications / advertising and minors in marketing and psychology, Holly then moved to Boston, MA, where she knew no one (but just loved the thrill of being in a wonderful new city), and she worked at the largest ad agency in New England, Arnold Worldwide, in the New Business Department. Upon moving to Austin in 2001 she sold promotional products at a company called HotLink and was a top salesperson in the company, increasing sales for her account by 25%. She then obtained her Real Estate license in 2003 and has been utilizing her love of marketing, selling, and helping others make the largest purchase of their lives in one amazing job – a Realtor® at Realty Austin.

We recently had the opportunity to be represented by Holly McCormick as a buyers agent while purchasing a home, and we could not be happier. As a buyer, we had many questions, all of which Holly answered in record time. She managed the selling agent and seller, all while keeping us updated on the process and setting proper expectations. It is clear that Holly loves her job! She demonstrates what one should expect from a professional and also proved to have the utmost integrity during the process. Our purchase was not the easiest since we bought in a highly desired area, which in turn led to a bidding war. Fortunately for us, we were represented and advised by Holly of what to expect in a multiple offer situation. In the end, we are certain, without a doubt, that Holly was the reason we were selected as the buyers of our new home. We are so in love with our new property and absolutely cannot wait until the previous occupant moves on.

Holly was an absolutely wonderful Realtor. She made the stress of selling a house not stressful at all. Holly was awesome to work with, very communicative, and clear. She answered all my questions quickly and worked hard for us. I would gladly recommend her to other people. Holly is truly great at what she does, and I’m so grateful I was able to work with Holly, she made everything go smoothly and quickly. She is definitely an asset to Realty Austin!

Holly was amazing. She was very knowledgeable and professional about every aspect of the sale. I would highly recommend her services to anyone looking to sell their home.

Holly is excellent; she helped us through the purchase of a home a few years ago, she designed an offer that won out in a bidding war and stayed on top of everything making it a seamless process. Speaking to Holly’s dedication and expertise we again enlisted Holly as our agent to sell and purchase our dream home. Holly worked with the builder negotiating an excellent contract and walked us through every step of the process from contract to close. As for the sale of our home, Holly made great suggestions on prepping the house, is straightforward, excellent at communicating and addressing any challenges that may arise. We highly recommend Holly and her Realty Austin team.

Holly McCormick and her team are the best! From our first meeting to the sale of the house everything went smoothly. Holly made great suggestions which we feel helped with a very quick sale of our place (had 4 offers the weekend we put it on the market). Her team helped with sending us detailed emails on any changes or what was needed for closing, so we always felt in the know. We will for sure use Holly and Realty Austin again!

We chose Holly McCormick as our Realtor because our son had such a successful experience in buying a house through her. She was so dedicated to finding a house for our son. She was very helpful in the process of putting things together for us when buying our home. Holly was able to negotiate to get us the best possible deal plus worked to have several extras added to the sale. She kept in communication with other Realtors and us and as a result, was instrumental in arranging for us to buy a house that we truly enjoy.


January 1 2019

Holly was awesome. We met Holly through the introduction from a mutual friend. Holly was a great support and was there for us every step the process. We loved working with her and felt like we just didn’t relocate to Austin, but we made a new friend as well.

Holly went above and beyond to help us get our house sold. She met with us, called us, texted us, and e-mailed us to keep us apprised of everything important throughout the whole transaction. We appreciated Holly's recommendations on improvements to prepare the house for a quick sale resulting in the best price and her assistance in coordinating all the vendors. She was very honest and upfront about suggestions; she gave us options and then we chose what we wanted to do based on our budget and priorities. Holly easily picked out the best attributes of our property that were appealing to buyers and focused on those through the marketing process. We had a full-price offer the day after we went on the market and she expertly guided us through choosing our favorite offer and the entire selling process. We’ve bought four houses so far, and this is our first sale; she made it so easy! Thank you, Holly! I would recommend Holly to anyone buying or selling!

We can’t say enough positive things about the service Holly gave us in both buying our new house and selling our old one. Holly was extremely professional, communicative, and set expectations well for all parties. We were happy with the negotiation process and the final sale prices. Both sales went very smoothly, and Holly walked us through every step in a thorough and fair way, but always with a sense of humor! We just love our new home. Thank you very much.

Holly McCormick was such a blessing for us. She is authentic, personable and has a great attitude. She took action fast and helped us get an amazing deal on our new home in the perfect neighborhood for us. She is a total doll. Thank you, Holly, and Realty Austin.

Holly was great. At first, my move to Austin was not imminent, but Holly made sure to keep in touch. It’s a good thing because I had to go from 0-60 in about two weeks. Holly was patient as I grappled with the concept that a house could cost so much in a horrible school district. She was always helpful with painter referrals, even a nail salon, and a pizza place. She even came over to supervise the movers when I had to run and get them their tips and lunch. We still keep in touch. If I know anybody that is moving here, I would recommend her.

Emily Shannon

I appreciate all of Holly's involvement when looking over the contracts, being at the walk-through tours and giving advice on all the matters around a new house build purchase. I also have been talking to Holly on and off since 2014, and she has always been helpful when I wanted to look at listings, keeping in touch with where I was in moving toward a purchase. I certainly will recommend Holly in the future.

Holly has been a joy and pleasure to work with. She was very responsive to all my questions involving the developer (I bought my place without seeing it personally), but she sent me a video and worked with the agent to make sure everything was done. I truly appreciated her help!!

Jackie Benz

Thank you, Thank You, THANK YOU! There are no words that really can express the level of my gratitude for all Holly did in assisting me with finding a home in such a short period of time. I sincerely appreciate her willingness to assist me as I know rentals are not her main focus and I’m so thankful she was willing to go outside of her normal realm to help me and my family.

She was very considerate, listened to exactly what my needs were and located several options that would be ideal for us. I am also so grateful for the time she took to help me locate a home and working late into the evening to help get the deal closed within the 48hr time period I was here. I know she was leaving for vacation and had to rearrange a lot of her personal plans to accommodate getting me squared away and the non-traditional way things were handled with the property manager. My goal was to find a home that would be a great fit for my family as we moved to Austin, walk away with a signed agreement and have keys to give my husband so he could move in as soon as he arrived. Because of her hard work, personal sacrifice and diligence, I was able to achieve the goal.

Not only did Holly assist with finding us the perfect home, she provided me with great companies to utilize in order for us to get signed up for insurance and a reference for a great local mover for when that time comes. You can rest assured that when the time arrives for us to buy or should I meet anyone looking to purchase, I will be sending them her way. We love our new place, we love Austin and we love Holly for all she did in helping make our transition go so well. THANK YOU!!!

Being new to the area, Holly was referred to me as the person most knowledgeable for the area and her expertise in the market in general. Holly worked hard to take my Wife and I to a multitude of different homes, different areas, and dealt with our indecisiveness. After several months of looking, Holly found a gem in the neighborhood and worked a deal no other could imagine. Today we are incredibly happy in our new home and thankful that Holly steered us in the right direction. Holly will have my business from here on out. Thank you Holly!

This was our third positive experience working with Holly (two buying, one selling). One thing that really stood out, this time, is how connected Holly is with the local market. We purchased a house in our preferred neighborhood that was not on the market yet, got a good price, and the entire transaction was “low drama”. Since the sellers were not on the market Holly’s professionalism allowed her to navigate the negotiation and the sellers’ were comfortable enough with her that they did not feel the need to get an agent of their own. A very positive experience all around.

We selected Holly McCormick as our realtor. She was the friend of a friend. We could not have been more happy with our experience. Holly was great showing us different parts of the city and the pro's and con's of each. I would highly recommend Holly to anyone who is looking for a realtor in the Austin area. She is great! If we move, we will use her again.

Holly McCormick helped us purchase a home and sell a home this past year. She was consistently professional and an absolute joy to work with. I would classify us a pretty picky and opinionated couple with a long wish list, and Holly was consistently cool and helpful through the process. She was energetic and excited to show us every potential home. She never made us feel rushed or crazy (that was our experience years ago). She offered great ideas and we always appreciated her honesty and insight. Her brutal honesty which I cherished. In selling our home, she gave us sound advice and we listened. We ended up selling our home at a top price and within a few days after listing.

I would highly recommend Holly to anyone looking to buy or sell a home in the Austin area. She rocks!!!

Holly assisted us with our home purchase and sale. For our home sale, she worked diligently with us to find the perfect asking price. We got this price in 3 days even though some people told us there was no way we would get that price. She helped us every step of the way, and the process was very smooth. She is a very strong negotiator and is very resourceful in her approach. We also built a home, and Holly helped us with this transaction. It was just as smooth. We would recommend her to anyone we know who wants to sell or buy a house!

Thanks Holly for a wonderful experience!

Holly was great to work with and we are very pleased with how fast our home sold while we listed with her.

Working with Holly was fantastic.

She made some recommendations prior to listing which were clear and concise. She followed up every step of the way and kept me completely up to date with how things were progressing.

I couldn’t be more pleased with the customer service provided.

Thank you Holly!

I can’t tell you enough how wonderful Holly has been through this process. She was always available in order for me to see a property and available for any questions. The truly amazing thing about Holly was her honesty. There were severe times during the overview and the price of a property, as well as the negotiation process that we had issues come up. Holly's professional and honest opinion were invaluable and made me put my trust in her with no hesitation. I will hold Holly in my highest regards as a realtor and a person. Referring her will be the easiest thing I can do for her in the future.

I cant thank her enough! I love my new home!

We engaged Holly McCormick as our Realtor to both sell our first home and purchase a new home for our growing family. Expecting our third child, it was a very exciting but hectic time where we needed a professional we could fully trust and rely on. Our decision to work with Holly was easy as she possesses a strong reputation, both personally and professionally. We were greatly impressed by her depth of knowledge of the Austin real estate market paired with her passion to serve and advocate for us as her clients.

At our initial meeting together, she came prepared to guide us through staging tips, to derive a fair home price based upon neighborhood comps, and to set realistic expectations of the selling process. Holly’s insight motivated us to work hard to get our home ready to show. Upon completion, she did a phenomenal job of coordinating and overseeing photography to supplement her detailed description on MLS which promptly caught much attention and requests for showings. As a result, we had a full price offer (above market value) the first day it was on the market! Throughout this process, we continued to follow Holly’s sound advice, and ultimately sold our home shortly there after.

While under contract to sell our home, Holly assisted us in diligently searching for a new home to move into. We provided her with specific requirements as far as location, price, size, and architectural style. These parameters coupled with the low home inventory in the Austin area, made for a challenging pursuit. With persistence and enthusiasm, it was evident that Holly was determined to find a place we could proudly call ‘home’. Thru the use of technology, Realty Austin's network, and her accommodating availability, Holly was able to pinpoint the perfect home for us that not only met our criteria but exceeded our expectations. We relied heavily on her contract negotiating skills and years of experience to successfully navigate the buying process. She also had a unique way of alleviating stress and making the experience enjoyable and fun. We greatly appreciate her and were blessed by her talent. We will continue to recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell a home!

Holly did an awesome job of staying in touch with me without being pushy. When my wife and I were finally ready to buy, she did an awesome job of getting us a plan right away. The first offer we put on a house we won, and it's all because of her. She told us exactly what we needed to do, and we followed her lead and got our very first house! She is great, I will always use her for my real estate needs in the future!

Because of our Realtor, Holly McCormick, I can not say enough wonderful things about my family's experience in moving from California to Texas. It could not have gone better and I feel a lot of that had to do with Holly. After living in California for over 50 years, moving was a stressful time, but Holly made it as easy as possible. Holly was always willing to meet with us when we flew in to see property, from Buda to Lakeway. Holly became like a family friend and offered us great advice. My husband and I felt we could trust Holly, that she had our best interest in mind. Holly answered all of our questions and concerns and if she didn¹t know something right away, she checked on it and got back to us as soon as possible.

Our family found a perfect home. We feel Holly was always looking out for us and made the whole process a great experience.  

Thank you Realty Austin and Holly McCormick for welcoming our family to Texas!

We were very pleased with Holly McCormick and everything she did to help our buying/selling go smoothly. While selling our house, she was persistent with prospective buyers and their agents, ensuring they knew all of the wonderful attributes of our neighborhood. And she was VERY patient with us as we looked at homes and wrote multiple offers. She was always willing to communicate with other agents to negotiate an offer that worked for both us and the seller. She tried to find creative solutions to problems and always maintained her smile and good sense of humor regardless of outcome. We would definitely recommend Holly to anyone interested in buying or selling in Austin!

Holly has been great to work with so far.  She is professional and responsive.  We look forward to selling our house with her as well.

Holly was an invaluable resource in purchasing our home, and I would have no hesitation to recommend her to others. I would absolutely choose to work with her again. Our client profile was that we were first-time homebuyers who were moving to a new area from out of state. "We had a very short amount of time to find a great property and schools for the kids, plus we were under a lot of pressure from work, the move, et al. Holly was much more than a realtor -- she was an educator, a friend, a diplomat, and a therapist throughout this arduous and tricky process. She demystified so much and was extremely knowledgeable on the housing market, investment values, bank financing, remodeling, and so much more. She held our hand throughout the process, giving us straightforward info when we needed it. We were able to buy with confidence because of her expertise and were able to get an affordable price on our dream house. She knew when to apply pressure to third parties to keep the process moving and protect our interests, and when to hold back. Any time I called her with a question, she either responded immediately or texted me within 10 min to let me know when she would call, but I always felt like she was present and totally on top of things. She's very proactive and will go above and beyond to make sure her clients are more than satisfied, but TRULY THRILLED with their purchase. She cares so much about the quality of her work, and it shows. We plan to stay in our home a long time, but if we were moving, I would call her again in a heartbeat.

Lisa S. & Giulio Pappalardo

Working with Holly was a great experience! She did her homework on my area and was fearless in her negotiations when it came to buying my home. During the contract phase, the seller was offering $12K in bonuses with an additional $3K off the price of the home if I went with their lender ($15K total). Holly was able to negotiate the contract to where I was able to go with whatever lender I wanted (as long as the seller's lender couldn't beat the competitors) and still get the full $12K off the price and they threw in a free brand new $1800 dollar stainless steel fridge! The thing I really appreciated was that my lender gave me less than a one day notice on when they were able to close and because of my work schedule...that was the only day I had available for the week. That day, Holly cancelled her all her evening plans in order to be there for my closing! She goes above and beyond and I would recommend her to anyone moving to the Austin area!

Mike Nguyen

I just want to say thank you. When I had the FSBO (For Sale By Owner) sign out front, I got lots of calls from agents wanting the listing. I didn't like them. Frustrated, hard sell kind of people that I wouldn't want representing my thing because if I don't like them, chances are, clients may not either.  One can be aggressive, and still personable, and the fact that you present both, made my decision easy. The way this all happened has saved my behind, and at the last minute.....it couldn't be better. Thanks again.

D. Silverman

We are extremely happy with Holly's hard work to sell our home. â€¨After two years, two realtors, and eights prospective buyers walking through our home in these two years, Holly took over and in the first month alone she surpassed the traffic generated by the previous realtors IN TWO YEARS! Holly is a fantastic agent with all the right connections and an incredible negotiator. She was able to negotiate our repairs and final costs brilliantly. In the process, Holly became a trusted friend, showing us that she really wants the best for her clients. She took our home from "unsellable" to SOLD in a relatively short time AND VERY CLOSE TO OUR ASKING PRICE! Holly McCormick is by far and away the number one realtor in Austin.

Jay and Mary Martinez

Holly is AMAZING or else I wouldn't be teaming up with her for the 3rd time to help in buying/selling a home. I'm from Austin and think I have a pretty good sense of the city, but Holly steps in everytime and provides additional insight that I didn't think of as we search. She is very patient as she understands that finding the perfect home takes time and can be stressful. During the search process Holly not only is proactive in pulling properties, but responsive as well when you're ready to physically view homes. Holly's negotiation skills make me confindent we're getting the most bang for our buck.

Colleen Perez

Holly got sold our duplex in 18 days for $4,000 more than asking price! What more is there to say?

Margaret and Brian Henry

We had our home listed with another agent for several months before we let Holly list our home. Within the month, Holly got our home under contract, and she also was a great help in purchasing our brand new Standard Pacific home.

Kelly and Bobby Suber

We used Holly to sell our home and to buy our new home! Not only did she get us the price we wanted on our old home, but she coordinated the closing of our new home and old home within two days of each other which made it a lot easier to make the transition! It was easy and seamless to work with her.

Marty and Josette Saxton

After working with agents in the past, we weren't too happy with Realtors®. We hired Holly to sell our home, and two weeks later, we had an offer which we accepted! She was very communicative and friendly, and we would refer her to anyone!

Jennifer and Shane Ahrens

We moved to Austin from Boston, and we were really concerned with finding "the" house. Holly listened to us very carefully and showed us what we wanted to see. We saved over $14,000 on the purchase of our home, and she also negotiated with the seller to get the whole A/C fixed which would have cost us another extra $3,000!

Matt and Barbara Kenny

After having my home on the market for 9 months, we chose Holly to represent us. Within a week, she brought us a contract. Unfortunately this buyer didn't move forward with the purchase. However, within another week, Holly brought us 2nd contract for more than the first one. We will close this month. She has been very helpful and considerate with everything.

Donna and Justin Musselman

Holly ensured a smooth transaction when we purchased new construction. She has also stayed in touch with us well after our move and has been great about helping us protest our taxes and even giving us recommendations for landscapers and cleaning services.
