I had an excellent experience working with Michelle Jones throughout the purchase of our vacation home. Her professional advice, negotiations, attention to detail and follow through made our home purchase experience very smooth. I would highly recommend Michelle for any home sale or home purchase in the greater Austin area.

Michelle was recommended to me as one of the best Realtors in the Austin/Lakeway area and this is absolutely true! She did a great job in marketing my home and managing expectations of both me as the seller and working through the obstacles the buyers created. She is an excellent problem solver and negotiator. She understands the market and knows what needs to get done to close a deal. She communicates extremely well, and is very responsive, and is easy to talk to. She gets it! I made the right choice by having Michelle as my Realtor. I too now highly recommend Michelle as one of the Best Realtors in the area.

Michelle, their assistant, Caitlin, and the entire team definitely exceeded our expectations. In the past two years, I have worked with six different real estate agents (selling my father’s estate properties). I was truly underwhelmed with their competence and performance, but not with The Jones Team. Caitlin was wonderful. She showed us numerous houses from San Marcos to Marble Falls. She is very professional, knowledgeable and courteous. We found our beautiful home thanks to Caitlin! Then the actual process with all the paperwork, deadlines, and so many things to juggle to get to closing. It was extremely daunting to me, but Michelle, Caitlin, and Nicole set my mind at ease. They kept us in line and on time. All questions and concerns were promptly responded to. It was so wonderful to work with professional, caring and competent people. A very pleasant surprise!

Michelle was fantastic, and I have already recommended her to friends. It was a pleasure working with Michelle and Realty Austin.

My husband and I cannot say enough awesome things about Michelle Jones! We found her online and she had impressive reviews and they were all absolutely 100% on point with the service you receive with Michelle. We were visiting Austin from New Jersey for a weekend and had to squeeze looking at real estate into a short period of time. We really needed to find a house that weekend and move quickly given our needs. I think we were pretty demanding and given the short timeframe, Michelle managed to schedule us to view over 25 homes in a day and a half. Prior to our visit, she would send us suggestions and very nicely weigh in on those "we found our own online searches". She was always super patient and guided us every step of the way. She told me that she really likes to get to know her clients to make sure she is directing them and giving them the best guidance in selecting a home and area that best suits their needs. Well, she certainly did that and in the end, she actually selected the house we ended up purchasing. And I say it that way because she ended up knowing us better than we knew ourselves in terms of what we "thought" we would like vs. what we actually liked. But it didn't stop husband actually had to leave town for business and so I had to close on my own and get settled in the house on my own the first week. Michelle was there every step of the way. She helped me during the closing, guided me through all of the standard "house" set up (the stuff we all forget about - water, garbage, internet, etc etc). She had an answer for any question I posed. We moved one month later after selecting our house - which if you've bought a house before, you know that is no easy feat! And I will tell you, that is because of Michelle - she was on top of every single thing including the schedule with our lender. We moved to Austin not knowing anyone or never having been here before. So that can be a bit overwhelming as well but once we moved, Michelle's kindness and support didn't stop at the house sale...she has introduced us to people and to neighborhood connections where we can get involved. This has made our move and settling into our new home and neighborhood super easy and we have already made friends and feel connected! I honestly cannot say enough great things about Michelle and above all - thank her so very much for finding us the house of our dreams where we can enjoy this wonderful life!!

We are really pleased to work with the Jones team (especially, Michelle) and we have got all the help and answers from you at the right moments. I will definitely refer The Jones team and Realty Austin to my friends and whoever is looking for a Realtor and who knows little of the nitty-gritty details of the home buying process.

I cannot even begin to come up with words to describe how amazing Michelle is. If I could buy a house every day just to experience her customer service, I would. She is truly phenomenal. My husband and I were moving cross country, and I was limited in time in Texas, so we did the majority of our communication via email and phone calls before we came to look at houses. Michelle is very familiar with the neighborhoods all around Austin (you want to know where something is, she knows where to find it). She can tell you about neighborhoods, schools, parks, running trails, grocery stores, etc. Michelle and I set up a phone call, and I told her everything I was looking for in a home and neighborhood. She immediately had recommendations for me. To give me space to mull things over and talk with my husband, she sent me several links to the neighborhoods we discussed, as well as put me on several search lists. Whenever I had questions about properties, she was happy to help us figure things out and was very easily accessible. When I finally came to Texas to look at our options, Michelle was just as delightful in person as she had been on the phone/email. She drove me around to the different neighborhoods, pointing out all the things that were important to me. Driving with Michelle and looking at houses honestly felt like I was driving around with my best friend; she just knew what I wanted. My husband and I ultimately decided to do a new build in Circle C, and I am so glad we worked with Michelle. As if buying a home was not challenging in and of itself, doing a new construction (especially for first-time buyers) provided its own challenges. Michelle always stayed on top of things- reminding us when we had forgotten to sign something, reaching out to the builder, advocating for us when we wanted something different, etc. She came to any and all appointments I asked her to- she even helped me design the inside of my home (and she has fabulous taste!), giving me her honest opinion. Late into the building process, our closing date got pushed back by two months, which was incredibly problematic for us for various reasons (one of which is we had already moved out of our apartment in Maryland and now had nowhere to go). Without hesitation, Michelle looked online and found us a home we could rent short term. The woman thinks of everything. Michelle is by far the greatest person we have ever worked with. I don’t plan on purchasing another home anytime shortly because, quite frankly, the home she helped us build is perfect, but if there is ever a time to purchase a home again, I will give Michelle a call!

Michelle Jones recently helped us buy our first home, and we had a great experience with her. As first-time home buyers, we did not know much about the process. She was very helpful in educating us on the different details and patiently answered all of our questions. Michelle was meticulous in pointing out the pros and cons of buying new versus old houses. Her expertise around home buying and timeliness were very impressive, and we would definitely recommend her to our friends.

Michelle helped with our first purchase, our near impossible sale, and now our new purchase. She is truly a joy to work with and such a professional. We could not have made this happen without Michelle. Thaddeus helped us as well; his comments and suggestions also gave us great peace of mind with this purchase.

Janna and Doug

July 2017

We have worked with Michelle on multiple real estate transactions over the past several years. Michelle is the epitome of professional and is always on top of every detail ensuring a smooth and hassle free experience. She is excellent at diffusing situations and educating her clients. I've seen her work exceedingly well with agents on the other side of the deal, and facilitate with title companies/lenders to ensure smooth closings. Her depth of experience and exceptional communication skills make her a powerful ally to any buyer/seller. I highly recommend Michelle and her team to anyone seeking an agent who is a cut above the rest!

I had a great experience working with Michelle Jones and her team at Realty Austin - Lake Travis on the sale of my home in Lakeway. I received multiple offers after one day on the market and the sale was a smooth, professional and pleasant process from start to finish thanks to their expertise and knowledge of the area. Highly recommend!

Keri Chmelik was amazing to work with. She was extremely helpful, knowledgeable, but most of all very professional. The flyers and prep work that she had created for our house was absolutely stunning. It almost convinced me to buy back my own house!

John G., Yelp Review

Keri has been very helpful through this entire process; plus very professional and efficient. We really could not have asked for a better realtor to assist us with the sale of our home.

Marina & Larry Byrum

September 2016

We were blessed to have Michelle Jones as our realtor. We recently relocated from NYC to ATX and Michelle made the entire process manageable and efficient. She was very helpful on the front end of the process with identifying the best homes to look at (23 in fact!) and helped us negotiate everything from best selling price, inspection reports, fixes, closing process and even post-move in support. Overall, she was amazing and I would definitely recommend her to anyone.

Bao H., Yelp Review

Keri Chmelik - by far the best agent ever. I used her site for years to watch the Lakeway market. Then one day we met out of fate as she was helping a fellow agent out and helped my mother in law look for a house. She was so helpful, kind and knowledgeable. Over the last year she has been on the rollercoaster with my husband and I trying to find land in Lakeway. Happy to say we just closed on 1.93 ac. So happy and she will be helping us sell out house around April of next yr. Great lady and a pleasure to work with!

Keri did I great job for us. She communicated every step of the way and made the closing a “piece of cake."

I am so impressed by Michelle's professionalism. She kept on top of the ever-changing situation and constantly offered positive solutions to the latest development. The property was not in pristine condition, to say the least, and she used counsel to recommend certain courses of action. I believe we side-stepped any number of difficult possibilities.

Michelle's depth of experience is impressive, as is both her realistic optimism and her outstanding communication skills. Michelle is the very best!

Keri was very responsive and was available to ease our emotional concerns through the entire process of selling and renting our next residence. It was very helpful to have a professional of Keri's caliber representing us.

Michelle was awesome. She was always available for questions and very responsive. She was extremely easy to work with. I would highly recommend her to anyone I know looking to buy or sell a home.


February 2016

Keri exceeded our expectations yet again and we feel very comfortable referring Keri Chmelik to our friends and family! She was so very thoughtful and responsive. She made selling our house and building a new one a great experience. She helped us negotiate and made sure we were being taken care of by builder. She truly is the best!

My wife and I had the pleasure to work with Keri Chmelik. No one could ask for a more professional or responsive agent to work with. She was always on top of our requests and ready to give us advice when we needed it. We really relied on her expertise of the Austin area to find the right location for us and we are very happy with the house we selected. She was very helpful during the buying process motivating the sellers to work with us when needed. She has a light touch with her clients but knows when its time to add pressure to the other side of the table to get her clients what they are looking for. When we purchase another house in the Austin area we will work with Keri to do it.

We can't say enough wonderful things about Michelle and Thaddeus Jones. They are a great team and terrific at what they do. They are professional, responsive, patient, and very knowledgeable. They went above and beyond for us each step of the way and kept in constant communication throughout the process. My husband and I highly recommend them and will definitely reach out to them with any of our own home buying needs in the future.

Keri Chmelik is the best agent I have ever dealt with! Professional, caring, diligent, and extremely knowledgeable. She helped us when ever we needed questions answered even when it was late in the evening or on the weekend. She got our house sold quickly and smoothly. Thank you!!!

Keri is the best realtor and has gone above and beyond her job role to make every sell or home purchase a great experience. We had good friends that were realtors that we could of used but we decided Keri was the best fit for us. She answered all my hundreds of questions with a smile. I learned a lot from her and look forward to closing of our house. She was extremely prompt to respond which I loved! We are so happy with the whole experience because of how great Keri was and still is with purchase of our new home.

Nikki Kallina

September 2015

I've worked with Michelle twice now. Once to buy a home and once to sell a home. Both times have been great experiences. Why did I chose Michelle? It was simple. I wanted someone that was honest, that I could trust and someone that took my calls/emails/texts. That is Michelle Jones! She never once left me hanging on a question or a concern. To me that was priceless. Even though, we lived in the Austin area for 25 years (and more), Michelle knew this area and the market incredibly well. If I were to sell my home or buy another in the Austin area, there's only one person I'd ever chose, that's how great our experience was with Michelle and Thaddeus Jones. Thank you!

Bill and Tammi

September 2015

What am I going to say that everyone hasn't said. Michelle and Thaddeus, two competent, energetic, very competent, good looking realtors....they were so patient with my wife and I. We took 2 years to pick a house and they kept sending us more listings, showing us more houses until finally we made the move from the bay area of CA to Austin. I am forever grateful and if I can remember I will be sending them Christmas cards. Thanks!

Amir B., Yelp Review

July 2015

With the help of Thaddeus and Michelle Jones, I was able to select and purchase a beautiful home with ease. They took time for me and anticipated each need or question. As a business person myself I was tremendously impressed with the professionalism, competency and overall likability of Michelle specifically. Her attention to detail, her quick response to all correspondence and her friendly but never pushy style made the difference for Realty Austin in my simply looking at houses to actually committing and buying a beautiful home in Westlake.

At every juncture she was there, steps ahead, ensuring that the process was smooth and worry free. They both took time to listen to my thoughts on locations and neighborhoods, offering valuable insight into the areas and guiding me in my search. I have heard so many horror stories about the home buying process but Michelle made it all feel easy and clear. I would work with her again in an instant and recommend her to anyone.

From one supervisor to another I feel like Realty Austin should know what a valuable colleague/employee that you have in Michelle Jones. In my field I work with highly skilled and educated professionals on a daily basis but only a handful out of hundreds over the past 10 years have proven as exceptional as Mrs. Jones.

Thank you Realty Austin for employing the Jones family team. Through Realty Austin I was able to become acquainted with them and ultimately purchase my new home and for that I am grateful.

Pete Z. Stewart

July 2015

We loved working with Keri. She was great! She knew the market well and was extremely helpful - especially to two people like us who would've gotten very lost in the paperwork. She made it very easy. We would definitely recommend her to friends - in fact, we already have. She listened to us and took what we wanted into consideration, and then guided us through the process. We would definitely use her again!

Nancy Paul

July 2015

I have worked with Keri three times this past year, and I have to say that Keri is amazing! She is professional, knowledgeable, patient, honest and a great communicator! All three experiences working with Keri have gone so smoothly, and I couldn't be happier with the awesome work that she has done! She and Rachel were with me every step of the way, and especially this time as I was buying a home by myself for the first time, and I knew nothing.

I would also like to add that Rachel is equally as awesome, and that Keri and Rachel make a great team!

I will absolutely recommend Realty Austin and the Keri Chmelik Team to friends and colleagues looking for a realtor.


May 2015

My wife and I have bought and sold 9 properties over the past 20+ years. This was by far, the best experience we have had. Keri Chmelik and her team of professionals Rachel and Ryan stayed closely in contact through the entire process. They held open houses and just delivered beyond our expectations in the shortest amount of time that we have ever experienced. Our home was one of the largest on our street and the asking price was more than the smaller homes in the neighborhood. Keri valued the house at a higher price per foot than we had expected and came through with flying colors. Realty Austin also had the very best marketing program that we have ever experienced. We had another home in escrow with a fairly short contingency period. We feared that we might not be able to sell our house and close in time but our fears were erased completely and now we can look forward to our purchase of the house we will be able to live and retire in. We just can't say enough good about this whole process. If we could give a 10 star review, we would.

Kristi Addington

September 2014

Keri was fantastic to work with as well as Realty Austin itself. Ended up selling and buying a house with her team.

Great attention to detail super fast response and great troubleshooting skills as well as working through barriers as things became complicated on both the buying and selling of each house…not a Realty Austin issue, or Keri issue, or my issue, just odd things with the buyer and sellers we were dealing with. Keri took point and bulldozed through those issues to make everything land on time.

She is a great asset to Realty Austin and I will use Keri again in total.

Mark Schofield

August 2014

My husband and I couldn't be happier for our home. We feel Keri went above and beyond our expectations in helping us find a comfortable home. I'm sure there are other things I've forgotten that I should add, but at least know we are very happy with all the work Keri did.

Phyllis Meinke

Michelle and Thaddeus were exceptional. Michelle was always prompt and thinking ahead of all the questions we would have. She responded immediately to each email and there were many!!! Thaddeus was wonderful taking care of us at the closing. They are a wonderful team and we felt very fortunate to have them as our realtors. We expect to continue to stay in touch with them and should the opportunity arise to utilize their services in the future we would definitely jump at that chance.


June 2014

Michele and Thaddeus Jones are the best. Michele helped us with the selling of our current home, as well as the purchase of our new one. She was so helpful on both sides of that. They were so on top of every detail, helping us all the way through. I would highly recommend them to anyone looking to buy or sell. These guys really know what they're doing, and really make going through a realtor worth it in every sense.

I would recommend Keri Chmelik in her field of expertise to represent anyone needing a Realtor. She made our buying experience very pleasurable, because of her knowledge, attitude, and ability working with others to achieve successful results. She did an outstanding job working with our legal counsel, and others to achieve our goal to purchase a home to share with our family.

It is my sincere pleasure to let you know how professional and knowledgeable the Keri Chmelik Team has been in selling my two properties in Steiner Ranch, Austin, Texas!

The Keri Chmelik Team has proven to be excellent in their manner of dealing with difficult incoming buyers and situations that were unexpected. They are very hardworking and dedicated agents to have on your side and have always represented my properties and my wishes with the utmost of ethics and success in closing the transactions. I will be always grateful for their knowledge of building and of the real estate business in general.

I wish that I could have the Keri Chmelik Team on my side of my future property buying but we have moved out of Texas and back to California. I have made new friends in the Keri Chmelik Team and my door is open to them anytime in the future!

We are transfers – or we soon will be – from the east coast.  Having never lived in Texas, we had several questions about the Austin area – and not just about homes. We asked about the job market, communities, housing markets, grocery stores and local restaurants. Both Michelle and Thaddeus answered all of our questions and then some, with both knowledge and insight. Our search lasted more than a year and they remained patient, understanding and helpful throughout. When we finally decided to buy, they continued to assist us at every turn. Michelle was so attentive – even with all my worry and fret and a million silly questions! We have not completed our move to Texas but will this coming spring. I feel comfortable knowing, if we have any further questions or need to be pointed in the right direction, that I can drop either Michelle or Thaddeus an email and both would not hesitate to help. When the opportunity arises, I will be more than happy to recommend Michelle and Thaddeus. Thank you again. Everyone that I had the opportunity to speak or work with at Realty Austin was fantastic.

Working with Michelle Jones was an incredible experience. She took care of everything, gave us great advice, produced beautiful photos, loaded our home on Realty Austin's killer website, and much more. Within a few days we had multiple offers and had a stress free closing within a month of listing.

Tim Childers, Facebook Review

My wife and I could not be more pleased with regards to the professionalism, courtesy, and patience Michelle and Thad have shown toward us. I know that we are the type that need direction in matters such as selling/buying a home, and we were very well taken care of. If and when we are involved in any real estate transaction, Michelle and Thad will be the first call. I would not hesitate to refer them to others. 

Jack Hyatt

We were very happy with the Keri Chmelik Team as our realtors, we would definitely recommend them to others. They did a great job of finding our house and negotiating settlement.

Cary Wright

We have been very pleased to work with Thaddeus and Michelle Jones. They are a great team with a lot of experience in both Real Estate and Construction.

Michelle is quick to respond to calls or emails and very professional. Realty Austin has great tools and training for their agents. We highly recommend Realty Austin, and particularly, the Jones Team.

Marcia Kasson

I had a great experience working with Michelle and Thaddeus Jones.  They were recommended to me by Lisa Muñoz, who has been my Realtor in Austin for eight or nine years. They did a great job of resetting my expectations and calculating an accurate listing price. I was also blown away by the professionalism of the marketing aspect provided by Realty Austin.

I will definitely be recommending Michelle and Thaddeus to anyone I know buying or selling in the hill country near Austin. I also feel very good recommending Realty Austin, in general.

Ross Henderson

Keri Chmelik is excellent. She is the very best REALTOR you can ask for.

Adam Lerner

Wow, what a pleasure to work with Keri. Very professional and pleasant. She was always available when we needed her to show property and had plenty to show us too. Very responsive. By all means, she exceeded our expectations and I have already recommended her to several people. I know she is a busy person, but she always made us feel as if we were her only priority. Not a gift all agents have. Looking forward to working with her again in the future.

Ellen Kaye Vent

We consider ourselves to be very fortunate that we made the decision to have Realty Austin, specifically Michelle and Thaddeus Jones represent us as both a seller's & buyer's agent. We originally selected another company/agent to sell our house in Driftwood, TX in 2011 when the market was saturated with listings and selling a home at appraised value was very challenging. After racking ups days on market due to being overpriced & from a lack of online marketing support, we had to make a change. We ran hundreds of online searches for listings in Austin and the surrounding hill country area to find the best company and agent to re-list our home. Realty Austin's listing agents consistently led the competition in our searches. Michelle and Thaddeus' properties were photographed/marketed superior to any we came across. With the majority of buyers finding properties online, we believed online marketing and photographic representation were vital to selling our home. In the end, our buyers fell in love with our home while viewing the online virtual tour & we sold close to asking price shortly afterwards. During the closing process, the buyer's agent made numerous comments about Michelle and Thaddeus' professionalism and follow through- recognition and praise from another experienced competing agent is a huge compliment.

We decided to buy a condo directly from a National builder in North Lakeway. Just before closing they informed us that the plat had a last minute revision and the property line was shifted which eliminated our lake view. We realized we made a mistake not to have Michelle and Thaddeus represent us, we decided to walk away from this condo, & called Michelle and Thaddeus immediately. We asked for her help finding us our new home in Lakeway. Although our budget made it a challenge to find a home in Rough Hollow, they worked with our builder to find a great floor plan and ideal lot to maximize views- and stay within budget. Their knowledge and negotiation skills are a huge asset from start to finish! It’s not uncommon for builders to experience turnover in the sales departments, and within weeks before closing, our builder made several changes and Michelle and Thaddeus stepped in quickly to take the lead with the builder's management, the Title Co, mortgage broker, etc. Their tenacity insured all parties handled their business in order to close on time. They even handled our final walk through with our builder on our behalf, made sure all repairs were completed, and took hundreds of photos, and posted the photos online in a virtual tour for our review. Even more impressive, they helped set up a remote closing so our family could continue to enjoy our Florida vacation (in a vacation rental found on a website Michelle recommended).

If you are planning to buy, sell, or rent don't show up without Michelle representation, expertise, & counsel.

We enjoyed working with Keri.  We live in Argentina but wanted to find a nice house for a good price to buy as an investment and a place we may want to live someday.  We have been considering this purchase since May.  Keri has been patient with us, very helpful, and professional.  We would recommend her without hesitation.

Kristi Addington

Keri Chmelik did an AMAZING job of finding my husband and I our 1st home! It was even more difficult for us because we live in Houston and were moving to Austin. Plus we had issues with our lender and Keri was so knowledgable that she was able to answer all my lender/financial questions as well! She has a wonderful personality and a caring heart! Her unique service exceeded all of our expectations. We would refer Keri to ALL of our friends and family!!

Looking for a retirement home in a distant city can be quite a challenge. After visiting the hill country just west of Austin on a holiday, my wife and I began to think it might be a nice retirement destination, but didn't know much about it. I came across Realty Austin via a casual Google search, and decided to give them a call. In retrospect, that was a great decision. They connected us with Keri. Over a handful of visits spanning 3 months, Keri demonstrated an unparalleled level of professionalism, friendliness, helpfulness, and patience. We started out with a high degree of uncertainty, not knowing for sure whether we wanted a home or a lot, how far from Lake Travis, how far from Austin, what level of neighborhood development, etc, etc. Keri patiently showed us a large number of options spanning all of the above, and explained the various pros and cons of each, which helped us zero in on a final decision that we are very happy with. She also helped us through a maze of paperwork all the way through to a successful closing. In short, it is my pleasure to give Keri the highest recommendation, and I would certainly refer to her any friend who may consider a real estate opportunity in Austin in the future.

We have had a wonderful experience with Michelle and Thaddeus Jones and Realty Austin and would recommend you all in a heartbeat to all our friends and family! I wanted to let you know how lucky we felt to have Michelle and Thaddeus as our Realtors. They were always there to answer the many questions we had as first time home buyers. They walked us through all of the steps and helped us to find an amazing home with ease. We cannot thank them enough for all their help, hard work, kindness, and dedication. They were even answering our calls and emails the day after she had a baby! As I said above, we cannot say enough good things about Michelle and Thaddeus and Realty Austin to others.

Amanda Davis

Always responsive. Provides good advice. Calm and relaxed approach. Effective negotiator.

James Fuchs

Keri did it all and always without any hesitation. No request was too great or too small.

One unique and extremely important benefit is Keri understood ME. At all times, she just knew where I was coming from. In her resourcefulness of taking the time to understand me as her client, she was able to direct the type of home I was looking for. And, not just a "home", but, what was NEEDED for us as a family and our individual needs encompassing the entire package of neighborhood, church, and community. Never did she give the impression that any request was too insignificant. It was always about me no matter HOW LONG IT TOOK to find the perfect home!! I knew what I wanted and she was right there with me without any pressure EVER. Keri is a top notch professional but also a genuine, honest, person. Her even keeled, always smiling disposition calmed down any trepidation I encountered in my search. This is one smart, efficient, diplomatic young woman who can hold her own and then some. Her strength is in her poise in navigating to find the right path to your home.

We can’t say enough superlatives about Michelle Jones. We had been trying to sell our home for well over a year. Michelle got it sold in like 11 days! And, a backup contract a few days later. And it wasn’t just about getting it sold. Michelle was on top of every aspect from listing, to marketing, to selling, closing and even verifying the funding. We didn’t have to worry about anything, Michelle proactively took care of it.

I used to conduct $5,000,000 to $10,000,000 real estate acquisitions for large publicly traded companies and dealt with exceptionally competent real estate professionals. Michelle runs with the best of them!

Frank Oberlin

It has been a real pleasure working with Michelle.

I am very particular when it comes to this kind of investment. Michelle worked with me over a few months to find a great fit.

Michelle was a great consultant throughout the process.

It was a pleasure working with Michelle and I have no reservation recommending her in the future.

Regards, Paul Smith

She did a great job. She knew the area, what I was looking for and knew her stuff.

Dawn Gagnon

We think Keri did an excellent job. We had a lot of traffic through the house, and was always available to lend insight and advice. We are happy to have had Keri as our selling agent.

Keri was able to give us a good price range and evaluation of our home in order for us to sell in a short amount of time. We have relocated and priced our home at an aggressive range, which Keri was a good part of. She really does know much about her business, and with an honest manner. Truly a pleasure to work with such an agent.

Heidi & George Palatine

Keri was very helpful. She went out of her way to make sure it was a smooth transition and took time out of her schedule to make sure we had everything we needed.

Hali Amezquita

Michelle was outstanding and wonderful. Always available to answer any questions I might have. She guided me through the whole process of selling my home and purchasing the new one. She went above and beyond always looking out for my best interests. I consider Michelle a wonderful friend and she will definitely be my Agent for life!

Debbie Mitchell

Michelle was a very patient, competent and helpful agent at every turn of our transaction. She not only worked the sale details, but also assisted us with the collateral issues, such as HOA contacts, referrals to contractors, and getting move-in arrangements made. Throughout the time we worked with her, she was very proactive in finding listings for us to view and doing market analysis of the properties we were interest in viewing. We have bought and sold various properties and have dealt with many agents. I can confidently say she is the best we have ever dealt with and would heartily recommend her to any seller or buyer for their real estate needs.

Martha Camacho

Keri spent a lot of time with me when I was just looking and not really ready to buy. When I found "the house" she ran down every detail, answered all my questions and connected me with all the people I needed. Keri was always available, provided all needed information and located an inspector, lawyer, etc. all of whom were reputable and did a great job.

Betty Welch

Keri is very professional but at the same time very personable. And, because of her mortgage background she was able to handle last minute problems that arose at closing.

Cindy Hargraves

Michelle was there every step of the way for me to guide me through the process and answer all my questions.

Debbie Mitchell

Four words to describe Michelle: On Top Of It! Michelle was extremely responsive throughout the entire home searching and closing process. Whenever we needed her help or expertise, she was available. I'm sure Michelle had other clients while she was working with us, but it did not seem that way. We felt like we were her only clients. We would definitely work with Michelle again and highly recommend her to anyone looking to purchase a home.

Joah & Helena Gonzalez

Michelle Jones was very patient, informative and knowledgeable throughout the process. Being a first-time homebuyer, I appreciated her input and advice even more.

Chris Sims

As out of state buyers, Keri served as our eyes on the ground. We met with her initially and discussed our needs and vision. Keri identified houses that met our requirements, reviewed them with us, then went out and took literally hundreds of photos, which then helped us narrow down our list.

We were able to visit all of the houses on our “short list” over a weekend visit, and made an offer at the end of that visit. Keri’s insight into the locations, construction and condition of the homes made a big difference in the quality and efficiency of our experience. A joy to work with, Keri made our home purchase a pleasant and successful experience! Highly recommend her to anyone in and out of state!


During our recent cross-country relocation to west Austin, Keri was an absolutely wonderful and professional real estate agent. She listened to our family needs for properties, neighborhoods, schools, and other preferences, and she provided us many options which met our desires. From our initial discussions through closing, Keri communicated with us during every step and made the entire home buying process smoother than we have ever experienced.

Marie & Trey Vann

Michelle Jones is a consummate professional. As a first-time home-buyer who was new to Austin, I found Michelle impressively knowledgeable, patient and supportive over the 4+ month process it took me to find a neighborhood and home that suited me. I'd enthusiastically recommend Michelle as my agent of choice to my friends in favorite here in Austin and back in San Francisco, and look forward to working with her again in the future.

Billy Bicket

Michelle always gives personalized attention and makes us feel as though we are her only clients. She's handles things without us even having to ask!

John and Denise McRae

Keri Chemelik recently helped us navigate the Austin real estate market in search of a holiday home on Lake Travis. She was an absolute delight to work with. Whenever, I contacted Keri via email - she was always quick to respond. After meeting our family one weekend - she immediately knew exactly what sort of home would best suit our needs. She then started researching and visiting several homes on our behalf and was completely honest about their suitability. After a very short time she found us a foreclosure that was both perfect for our family needs and a fantastic investment opportunity. She handled the negotiations professionally and with care. And she was very thorough, assertive when necessary, and attentive to detail. I would recommend Keri to anybody looking for a realtor in the Austin area.

Michelle is a terrific, sincere and delightful person to work with. She made the entire first time home buyer experience smooth and trouble-free. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a good realtor.

First-Time Homebuyer

Michelle was great and more than met our expectations. Thank you!


Michelle was an excellent agent who patiently supported our decision to sell and helped us accomplish our sale much more quickly than we had anticipated. Thank you, Michelle!

John Robinson

Michelle was an outstanding source of information and guidance throughout my entire home-buying process. I searched for a home in the central Texas area for over 18 months. During that time, I looked at homes in Austin, Round Rock, Pflugerville, Leander, and Buda. Michelle was able to arrange tours of selected homes in short periods of time and provide me with valuable insight on each home. Once I found the home I wanted to purchase, Michelle was an invaluable asset and great source of information for me. This was my first home purchase, and Michelle took the time to explain everything to me and answer any questions I had to ensure I understood exactly what was going on. She responded to my questions in a very timely manner, even during the days surrounding Christmas. Michelle also excelled in coordinating everything between the selling agent, the mortgage company, and everyone else involved in the home-buying process. Throughout the process, I knew Michelle had everything under control, which allowed me to focus on other things. I feel fortunate to have had Michelle as my realtor. She is very knowledgeable and I will definitely refer to any friends or family that are looking for a realtor.

Mark Staedtler

Michelle was great! We worked with Michelle for approximately one year trying to find a home. Even when I thought it would never happen, Michelle remained positive and supportive and just keep working toward our goal. We eventually found the perfect home.

Nick Young

Michelle was absolutely awesome! She couldn't have prvided a better service. She was very professional yet she allowed her wonderful personality to shine through! Michelle was a joy to work with. She was very supportive and willing to go that extra mile.

Bill and Tammi Putnam

I apprecaited Michelle's help so much. We had never sold a home before and we did not anything about the processes. She helped me through email even when I was out of the country.

Carla Acord

Michelle Jones was always availalble and had all the answers and service when we needed something. She made a potentially stressful process actually enjoyable. We will definitely continue to use her in the future and will recommend her to others without reservation. A+ service all the way!

Jason and Melissa Hinderer

Michelle worked with us both online and in person to make our home search and relocation as simple as possible.

Jennifer Murphy

We have never had such wonderful service from a Realtor or realty office! Everything was taken care of for us!

Denise McRae

We met Michelle Jones via the internet in Dec 2005. We were looking at moving from Phoenix to Texas. From the moment we met Michelle in person, we felt she listened to exactly what we said, she asked lots of questions that would help her in locating and sorting out items we did or did not want, and was just a pleasure to be around. I don?t think Michelles forte is Texas ranch property, but that is what we were looking for and she was perfect. She made calls on fencing, barns and anything we might need some information on, (and on items we had not even thought of). She was an expert from the viewing to the closing, and was involved in every step thru the way. I would highly recommend Michelle Jones to anyone that is looking to buy or sell a home.

Ron and Debbie Parmely

Thanks for being so great. This is a first time experience for both my husband and I and we both have agreed on how awesome you have been. Thanks for everything.

B.G., Austin, Texas

We are delighted to write this testimonial for Ms. Keri Chmelik (Keri). After living in Asia for 10 years, we decided to relocate from Tokyo to Austin. Not having lived in this area before and having no contacts whatsoever, we started an internet search for a home in Austin from Tokyo.

After contacting a few realtors through their websites, and getting the brush off (call us when you are in Texas), we came upon Keri’s website. We noticed that her website was different. Keri went into details on how she will assist a buyer. We were encouraged and sent her an e-mail. We were delighted with the response. Keri wanted to know about the type of home we were looking for, price range, etc. We were very pleased with how quickly Keri grasped what we were looking for, and the pace at which she started identifying prospective homes in Austin and the vicinity. While we were reviewing the properties, Keri also began educating us about the various communities. This was very helpful in narrowing our search. After looking at numerous properties online, we narrowed our search to 10 homes that we were interested in viewing. Keri set aside more than enough time for our visit, we were not hurried through properties and not coaxed into making a decision soon. Keri was very patient and understanding. When we were ready to make an offer on a home, one of us had to return to Tokyo and hence much coordination had to be done between Austin and Tokyo. Keri successfully coordinated everything. Our offer was efficiently communicated to the seller. Keri introduced us to home inspectors and lawyers and put us in touch with utility companies. She coordinated a host of other things that we, living in Tokyo, could not have possibly done by ourselves. At the time of Closing Keri took it upon herself to minimize the work we had to do at our end. Throughout Keri was very resourceful and proactive.

After the closing Keri continued to help us with finding vets, doctors, churches, home improvement contractors, restaurants, and several other things that new residents need. Keri truly believes in building a positive relationship with her clients. We were so pleased with her work that we engaged her services to purchase the property next to us.

Keri is thorough in her work, very interested in the well being of her clients, and goes out of her way to make things happen for them. We are delighted to have had the pleasure of working with Keri. We intend to call on Keri for our next real estate purchase.

Aroon and Debbie Maben--Georgetown, Texas

What I look for in a real estate agent is the ability to really listen to what I say and understand what I am looking for, and to show me only those properties that fall into my criteria. Michelle certainly fit the bill. Unlike other agents whom I have dealt with in the past, Michelle never tried to sell me a property. Additionally, she was always well prepared, organized and on time, and was always very pleasant to deal with, in spite of the fact that scheduling our meetings was sometimes challenging since I live in Houston and was looking for property around Austin. Michelle was also very responsive, always available and really on the ball during the negotiation and closing process. I would definitely recommend her to my friends and family.

D.U., Houston, TX

Dear Michelle, Jesse and I would like to thank you for your tireless efforts in our search for a home in Austin. There were so many things to worry about since we were moving from out of state, but we knew that we could count on you and that made buying a house much less stressful. We both appreciated that you were patient and didn't mind showing us all over Austin before we decided where we wanted to settle. We feel like we found the best neighborhood for us and are excited to move in to our new home.

I thought Michelle was very helpful. She contacted me quickly and has not been pushy. I appreciate that. My wife and I have been looking for over two years, probably the most ever for a client of Michelle's, but she never gave up on us. She was always there when we were ready to look at a house, and was just awesome!! When we are ready to move again, we will definitely be calling Michelle, and will recommend her to anyone we know that is looking.

I miss Michelle! She was like a good friend helping us through a big life decision. She would immediately respond to any concerns or questions that we had. From our first meeting regarding our listing she was very attentive. She had preliminary flyers in our yard within a couple of hours. She always promptly answered her phone or returned our calls and emails. She carried herself in a manner that I would consider to be highly ethical while still being a loyal advocate for us. Michelle is very knowledgeable and educated in her field, she never waivered when explaining legal terminology or situations to us. She was always approachable and professional and had a great sense of humor. I know that we had to be annoying at those high-stress times, but she never let us feel that way. We felt like we were very high on her list of priorities. She was wonderful with our 2 young girls and my 3 year old still asks about 'Miss Michelle'. We have and will recommend Michelle Jones to any of our friends and family without hesitation.

Mari Andrade

Of the agents I have been with in New Braunfels, Canyon Lake and now Wimberley. Michelle is by far the best!!!!!!!!

Thank you for a job very well done.

Fred and Nancy Peyton

[Michelle] adds personal touches to emails...seems generally concerned as to our needs even though we won't be listing till December..BUT we assured this is a for sure thing as our kids moved to BUDA from California
