Jonathan and Kirsten Team

Jonathan and Kirsten Team


The Jonathan and Kirsten Team consists of Jonathan Hubbard and Kirsten Birkhold.

When Jonathan and Kirsten recognized that they each have the desire to provide 5-star service to their clients, they also realized they each have specific skills to form a successful team.

While Jonathan handles most of the listing transactions, Kirsten takes the lead on most of the team’s buyer transactions. She has an excellent eye for design and has developed a passion for helping clients find their starter home, dream home or running the numbers to pick out the best investment property. Kirsten’s desire is to make the extra effort to ascertain just what each client is seeking to purchase. Jonathan has an eagerness to work with each property owner to ensure that they not only get top dollar for their property but to produce the right qualified buyer for each transaction. He has a reputation for obtaining 95% of the listing price for his clients. His experience also includes working with buyers and sellers of multi-family properties. Jonathan has made a significant footprint in the multi-family arena over the last 3 years.

Please ask Jonathan about his "off-market" opportunities. He would love to speak with you about how he has developed that side of the business. He has creative marketing strategies that help his investor clients buy and sell "off-market" properties.

During their time off, both Jonathan and Kirsten thrive on being outside. They both enjoy golf and spending time with their dog at Zilker Park. Kirsten might also be found running on Lady Bird Lake. In Austin, it’s easy to be a foodie which Jonathan and Kirsten most definitely are. They can be spotted at a new hot spot that just opened up or restaurant that has already made a name for itself in Austin, they love it all!!

As real estate professionals, Jonathan and Kirstan each know that the first step in forming a business model is putting the clients first. They eagerly go the extra mile for each client on each and every transaction.

My husband & I are completely new at the home buying process. We went into this experience knowing absolutely nothing. The very first meeting we had with Jonathan & Kirsten, we knew they were the right fit for us. They explained the process to us and answered every single question we had, no matter what it was. They showed us all of the houses we requested to see, and when we found our home they made us feel comfortable & confident with the process. They are both extremely knowledgeable, super friendly, and the sweetest people ever. They respond quickly and always have answers or can get the answer quickly. We have already recommended them to our friends & will continue to praise them! Definitely give them a 10/10!!

This was my first home buying experience, and as a result, I needed a bit more hand-holding. Jonathan and Kirsten were at all times patient, enthusiastic and professional in taking the time to explain things to me in detail. They made all of the communication with the Seller/Builder, prospective lenders and the title team exceedingly simple. I'll happily refer Jonathan and Kirsten to my friends and would look to them again for my next home purchase.

I've had the pleasure of working with Jonathan twice, once to purchase and once to sell. Jonathan made a complicated experience simple, was always available for any questions or problems that came up, and worked hard to get me to a good price. I really cannot stress enough how available and helpful Jonathan constantly was, and would absolutely work with him again in the future.

We recently worked with the Jonathan & Kirsten team to purchase a house in the Plum Creek neighborhood in Kyle, Texas. They were wonderful to work with. We were moving from Houston and sold our house there very quickly and had a three-week closing, so we needed to move fast. Jonathan and Kirsten talked to us on the phone ahead of time; we asked a lot of questions, and they gave us very thorough answers. Within a couple of days, we set up an evening, and they showed us all the houses available in the neighborhood that met our requirements. It was great! We picked one that evening and went back the next day for a second showing and put in an offer. Then Hurricane Harvey hit and that delayed closing on the house we were selling. While we were stressed about that, Jonathan and Kirsten kept this side of things very relaxed and made the process run smooth. I knew I could count on them to take care of all the little details, including leasing our new house before purchasing and changing the closing date and I wouldn't have to worry. We've worked with five Realtors before them, and Jonathan and Kirsten have been our favorite!

Both Jonathan and Kirsten are phenomenal. My wife and I have worked with many Realtors in different parts of the US, and are very demanding clients. Jonathan didn't miss a beat. We appreciated him being very "on-top-of-it" as we like to say. We've already discussed the likelihood of working again with Jonathan and Kirsten in the very near future.

Working with both Jonathan and Kirsten was a wonderful, painless, experience. Both Pat and I truly enjoyed working with them. From the very first time we engaged with Jonathan, he was extremely responsive and informative. The initial viewing of the house (that we ended up purchasing) was unlike other viewings that I have had in the past. Both Jonathan and Kirsten were friendly and NOT PUSHY. They let us wander the homes that we visited without feeling any type of pressure or angst whatsoever. They were very professional, supportive and gave very good advice when asked. We both highly recommend these two, and they will be our ‘go to’ Realtors if we are looking at other property in the Austin area.

The move from Austin to Fort Worth would not have been possible without Jonathan. Jonathan and his team were absolutely phenomenal in supporting my husband and I as we sold our first home. This move was very sudden, and we had an aggressive timeline. I ran into Jonathan months prior by chance. I told him I would keep him in mind if by chance my husband and I needed a Realtor; I am so happy we did! Jonathan was so knowledgeable, supportive and reassuring throughout our selling process. He vowed to get us sold quickly, and that is just what he did! What we appreciate most about Jonathan is that he was always accessible for questions. My husband and I felt like we were his only clients because he was so prompt with his responses. Jonathan was so patient with us and was happy to explain (sometimes explain more than once) to ensure my husband, and I felt good with our decisions. I could really go on and on about Jonathan. He was an outstanding agent. He made this transition smooth for us. My husband and I were often out of town in Fort Worth, and yet Jonathan was still able to make us feel like the distance was not an issue and business carried on as usual. His team was great about sending emails with timelines and next steps, so there was never any guess work on our end. We were very pleased with Jonathan and his team. We would choose Jonathan and his team all over again. I will also recommend him to our Austin family and friends.

We do a pretty high volume of transactions and Jonathan is certainly my favorite person to work with when I'm buying or selling. He delivers the best service I've experienced here in Austin. He puts himself in his client's shoes, listens to what they are trying to accomplish until he understands and can execute on that objective, regardless of whether he may think unreasonable. Jonathan is someone you can trust in achieving your real estate goals. I've been an agent/broker for 6 years and I even hire him to sell my properties.

Nicholas Yarnall

Jonathan represented us in a house purchase. He was always available, down to earth and very easy to work with. He was very knowledgeable about the area, the process and he was able to get us s very fair deal on the purchase. We highly recommend and hope to work with him again in the future!

Jennifer Bolan

We were very happy with Kirsten as our Real Estate agent. She made herself available for us and had excellent communication throughout the process. It was comforting to know that we could ask questions and receive feedback or answers in a short amount of time. Kirsten helped us negotiate with the sellers to get what we wanted to be done to the house before closing. Since it was our first house to buy, she helped set expectations and guide us through the process. At times, I was unsure of how certain negotiations were going during the option period and asked her to draft terminations for the contract. She kept saying that everything was fine and that we would get what we wanted but she also wrote the letters and we were prepared to send them if necessary. But she was right in the end and it was not needed, but it helped to know that we would be covered. She was sweet to our little girls as they ran around and played in a couple visits. All in all, we had a great experience and thank Kirsten very much!

Brad Naylor

Kirsten Birkhold recently was our agent in purchasing a rental property. She was highly professional and moved quickly and efficiently to get our offer made in today's fast-paced market. As the deal progressed, she was readily available and responsive when we had questions or requested contract adjustments. Overall, she represented our interests exceptionally well. We highly recommend her.

Shiang Shiang Chen

We have purchased several investment properties with Jonathan. He does exactly what he says and always acted with our best interests at heart. I recommend him!

Lance Sallis

Kirsten Birkhold is an absolutely AMAZING agent - knowledge, personable, and dedicated! As a first time homebuyer, I had many questions and concerns. Kirsten was quick to respond to my questions and educated me on the process from the start. This made the entire home buying process easy and smoother than I ever would have imagined. I could not have asked for a better agent!

Lauren Clifton

Jonathan was the perfect professional throughout my entire buying process. It gave me peace of mind knowing I had an experienced agent who always looked out for my best interest. It gave me a sense of security, just having my own agent. I would recommend him to anyone looking to buy real estate property.

Harry Tran

Kirsten was such a pleasure to work with and really knew the challenging Austin market. She responded to every question we had during the showings, contract stage and right up to closing. Kirsten's experience and confidence with negotiating and communicating made all the difference in providing a great experience. We would definitely call Kirsten to help with our real estate needs in the future.

Diana White

Kirsten was great to work with. I would recommend her to anyone looking for a home in Austin, especially first-time homebuyers. She was knowledgeable about the area (I'm a young, single woman looking for a safe place to live and she would let me know where to avoid). She made time on the weekends, during lunch, and after work to see homes because other times wouldn't fit in my schedule. We saw over 40 homes together, sometimes up to 6-7 a day and she was happy to help. I put offers down on five houses and she did all of the negotiating. I was very impressed when she was able to get the cost for the final home down to $10k below asking. And I thought offering $4k below would get rejected! Kirsten's negotiating saved me lots of money. And above all, she's just a great person! I had a lot of fun seeing houses together and getting excited about the house that we found that met all of my criteria.

Lizi George

Jonathan knows the market and worked hard to make the best deal for our purchases. I wouldn't use anyone else for help with buying, selling or leasing.

Karen Sallis

My agent was Kirsten. She is awesome. She knew exactly what we were looking for and was interested in making us get the best deal, not the other way around. When we would look at houses she would open the door and let us do our thing without sticking to our backs and trying to force us to make an offer as other agents tend to do, that's the best kind of agent, one that works for you and will work to her best to get the results that you are looking for. I was a first-time buyer and am so grateful that Kirsten was the one helping us find a home. Her schedule was also always open to your needs, including showing up for an inspection if you were not able to. I guarantee if you use Kirsten as your agent, you will be above satisfied. There are not enough compliments I can give on paper with the experience that our family received from working with Kirsten that would come close to painting how amazing an agent she is, just know that my whole family was smiling throughout the whole experience. Thank you so much, Kirsten, you do outstanding work.

Carlos Velez

He's the best! Jonathan had some creative marketing strategies to sell my property before it even hit the market. He was always there when I needed him and got me the exact price we agreed on. Best agent in Austin!

Charles Stigger

I had a great experience with Kirsten Birkhold. She was my realtor, and she was very helpful and patient! She was able to narrow it down to a few choices and was readily available and willing to show/discuss any property and answer any questions quickly. I highly recommend her!

Josh Broadbent

Great experience working with Kirsten! Told her the type of place we were looking for and she gave us a great range of options. She was a really awesome person to be around. Definitely recommend!

Patrick Ojeaga

Kirsten is simply the best. I was expecting a truly awful time looking around at houses, but Kirsten nailed it on the head and we found a place! I would DEFINITELY do business with Kirsten Birkhold!

Alex Buchanan

Jonathan was amazing! His real estate knowledge really helped me in getting top dollar for my property. He was always there when I needed him, walking me through each step! He is the best listing agent in Austin. What sets him apart from everyone else, is that he truly cares about his clients! He really wants to help people and be on your side. Please give him a call!

Luis Ospinal

Kirsten was my agent, and she did a great job. She was very nice, responsive, and professional. She made the entire process a lot easier. I would use her again!

Sydney Gorewitz

Jonathan was very responsive and very easy to communicate with. He was so informative and made a rather intense process quite simple. I highly recommend him to anyone who is looking at new property.

Zahi Youwakim

Kirsten is awesome!! She's really patient & very flexible with all the different scenarios we threw at her. I would definitely recommend her!

Erika R.

Kirsten Birkhold was my realtor and she was fantastic! She was very helpful, responsive, flexible and super quick. Thanks!!
