Karen Matuszewski


Since 2001 Karen has been considered a top agent and specialist in the Austin luxury, resort and custom home building real estate markets. In addition to being degreed in custom home construction, Karen has an in-depth knowledge of what it takes to both sell and find homes for discriminating clients. In only four years after obtaining her real estate license, Karen was able to establish herself as a member of Austin's Elite 25 in 2005 and the Institute of Luxury Home Marketing’s Million Dollar Guild. In 2007, Karen was awarded as one of the Top 15 Realtors in Austin according to the Austin Business Journal.

During Karen’s years of experience as a Custom Home Concierge, she worked with clients who needed something that wasn’t available; a trusted advisor who would be with them from lot selection to moving day! Her positions on the Board of Directors and Executive Committee of the Austin Home Builders Association had her working alongside some of the best builders, architects, interior designers and other professionals in the building industry. This experience gives Karen’s clients an edge in the custom home process and provides her with an almost 3-D capability when viewing homes her clients want to build, buy or sell.

Karen lives in the Lake Travis area with her husband Rob and their Pembroke Welsh Corgi “Danzy.” She enjoys boating on Lake Travis, cooking for friends and family and experiencing new places and people through travel.

Her community service activities include:

  • Ronald McDonald House Charities of Central Texas
  • Mobile Loaves and Fishes
  • Habitat For Humanity
  • Women's Advisory Council of Baylor, Scott & White Medical Center - Lakeway

We cannot recommend Karen enough. I went into this process not actually even wanting a lake house, so I was a hard sell, but she sold me on Lake Travis and most importantly the lake life. Now I somehow own a lake house, and I couldn’t be more excited! Our deal was not easy to navigate, and our lender certainly complicated the situation, but Karen handled it with finesse and ease. She stayed on top of things even when I did not and played hardball when she needed to. Neither Dax nor I are afraid to speak our minds, and she never wavered from her professionalism.

Her personal touch made all the difference, and her ability to step back and listen to us when we were frustrated is what made the deal go through. When she showed up the day after move in with pizzas, a personalized cooler (with the date our lake house was established) filled with the best drink makings and a Symonds family description to hang up that described our family perfectly. It really touched my heart. We came into contact with Karen looking for a Realtor but went out with a friend I think we will treasure for years to come.

Karen Matuszewski is amazing! We just recently moved to Austin and my uncle who has used her on a couple of transactions recommended we contact her. 

She was so patient with us as we asked her several questions about the TX and Austin market. Impressed at how quick she would provide us comps for various markets in Austin. I really appreciated how we would find a house and she would give us an honest opinion (e.g., I suggested a couple of million+ houses which she told us the builders would not fit our standards). We ended up finding an amazing house at the lower end of our budget which we love and it had everything we wanted. My family was so impressed with our find! She never pushed us and always provided constructive feedback. As first-time homeowners, we also appreciated how after the sale she still answers our questions about things like sales tax, insurance, etc... She's a gem!

Karen is the most knowledgeable agent! After seeing the property and location, she has a pretty clear picture for marketing. Her thoughts, vision, and tips are the most helpful for a seller to make the right decisions. She is the most caring and kind person I have ever met. Thank you, Karen.

I used Karen Matuszewski as my Realtor for this business. She was introduced to me because other family members referred me and came EXTREMELY HIGHLY RATED. My experience with Karen was nothing more than amazing! From start to finish, she seemed to have a tool in her belt for every situation like getting a better deal on the house, getting a better finance deal from a lender, getting the correct and accurate information about a homes inspection and the list could keep going. Karen also helped me get my house in under 30 days during the holiday season, INCREDIBLE! I literately used to joke with my friends that Realtors were worth nothing than receiving a free paycheck in the home buying process, not Karen! She earned every penny and probably should have gotten more! If you are lucky to get Karen, you're in great hands.

What can I say? Karen is a thorough professional. She knows the Austin area real estate market inside and out and has the skill to solve problems and make things happen. I highly recommend Karen.

Moving to a new community without connections is daunting; however, with Karen Matuszewski as our real estate agent, it has been a pleasant experience. The location and our budget, coupled with the style of home we had our eye on, placed us smack dab in the middle of a very hot market. Despite this fact, due to lightning fast speed in writing and negotiating a contract, we were able to sidestep a bidding war, and we closed on our perfect home without any glitches. Karen has all of the qualities that make an agent amazing. She is self-motivated, full of integrity, a lifelong learner, hustles, and tenacity, has an understanding of construction, an ability to hear what the customer is trying to say, engaging personality, attention to detail, she understands the local housing market, Karen has a built-in network of connections and she is downright knowledgeable about almost everything pertaining to Lakeway. Most importantly, Karen goes well above the call of duty, and this is such a rare but wonderful quality. Overall, we are grateful and thankful to have worked alongside Karen. We will recommend her to our closest friends and family!

We love working with Karen Matuszewski at Realty Austin. Karen’s energy, professionalism, and love of her career shone through and made our home selling experience enjoyable. Thank you, Karen, for all your hard work.

Karen Matuszewski is a full-service custom home concierge – the likes of which I have never encountered before! I have bought and sold 5 homes and have not been dissatisfied with any those transactions but I had never BUILT a new home before. For someone who did not live in Austin, Karen lifts the caliber of service to a new level – concierge level. Her first goal is to get to know as much about you and your needs and tastes so she can fine-tune your search process and make sure she can zero in on properties you are truly interested in. Her level of communication throughout the search, offer, negotiation and closing process is nothing short of 5 Star. Karen saved me thousands of dollars and a lot of time by lining me up with the best and most competitive sources for financing. But the thing that really puts Karen’s service in the “concierge class” is what happens after the purchase of the lot. We do not live in Austin and she provided a true custom home concierge service that helped us with builder selection, home design, furnishing, appliance choices, pool construction, landscaping and so much more. I can’t recommend her highly enough! Whether you live in Austin, or someplace else, if you’re building or buying a home in the Austin or surrounding area you NEED to use Karen Matuszewski!

This was our first time building a custom home. I travel extensively and do not have the time or expertise to make sure this is done right. Karen's Firm was the firm we chose to work with for our waterfront dream home. From land search to custom home builder selection to building our home, Karen was with us every step of the way and was invaluable to us throughout the process! Her experience helped us to find a beautiful lot, 40% under market pricing on the water. She then helped us select a builder to fit our needs. Through the design and build process, she has been tremendous in helping us to work through the challenges of the construction process. We have demanding schedules with travel, work, home and with Karen's experience, availability and consideration, she has facilitated our project every step of the way. Karen offered ideas on different layouts, vendors, options and features which have improved our overall house design, project and build experience. She has been invaluable to us in this effort and we would recommend her highly.

A big challenge for us was how to translate our vision into a design that complimented our lot, our lake views and our lifestyle. Karen worked with us until it was perfect!

Drs. David & Pat N.

Karen has always been responsive to our needs, she listens (!!!) and she is most reliable. When we came into town, she had always done her homework and was prepared in regards to any task we had assigned her. I would highly recommend Karen for any custom home or real estate related project.

Ofer & Sonia M.

I recommend Karen without reservation to anyone who may have an opportunity to work with her. Karen and I did some out-of-the-box brainstorming on a 35-acre conservation development project on Lake Travis working toward a proverbial win/win/win. I must admit Karen did all the heavy lifting! She is savvy, professional – and honest. Any client, company or colleague would benefit greatly by having Karen on their team.

George Cofer, Executive Director, Hill Country Conservancy

Karen is a valued member of the Home Builders Association of Greater Austin where she has served on our Board of Directors and Executive Committee. In addition, she has served as Chairperson of our annual New Home Tour and Parade of Homes. She Co-chaired the HBA Benefit Home Committee that worked with one of our builder members to construct a home using donated materials and labor whenever possible. The beneficiaries of that home were Dell Children’s Medical Center and the Ronald McDonald House. To maximize the benefits, she also chaired an independent solicitation committee for materials for the Ronald McDonald House Family Room that is located right outside of the NICU in Dell Children’s Medical Center. Her real estate firm donated all of the listing commission back to the charities. I am not sure where you could find an individual who “gives back” more.
