Favorite Places in Austin

As a busy mom and REALTOR®, Kate’s free time is spent with her family. She is an active volunteer in her community and helps plan all of the neighborhood events in Twin Creeks as well as fundraisers and events for the local high school band, where her son plays on the drumline. Kate and her husband love Austin for its unique food scene and are always trying new restaurants. Some of their favorites are Austin originals, including Launderette, Odd Duck, and Foxhole Tavern. They also enjoy spending nights out on Rainey Street, which is known for its relaxed vibe and cool hangouts like Bungalow.

Kate Best is literally the BEST! We have worked with Kate twice now- buying and selling our home in Austin. She is the most dedicated, compassionate, and determined realtor that we have ever worked with. She has become a friend in the process. We strongly recommend putting your real estate needs in her hands.

The bottom line is DO NOT buy a house without Kate Best! She is phenomenal and does her job above, and beyond any Realtor, I have ever worked with. Kate first helped up purchase our home in Georgetown, TX while we were still living in another state. The transaction was seamless, and Kate was always knowledgeable about every aspect. We feel so blessed to have worked with Kate and to continue working with her.

Fast forward six months later, we are in our new home loving it, but now it is time for my mom to move and buy a home. Kate was ready to rock and roll and found my mom the PERFECT home. She once again helped our family with finding the perfect home and getting it, especially since this home had multiple offers. Thank you! Kate will forever be our go-to Realtor.

Kate Best is a five-star Realtor®! She showed me thirty-some houses before I found mine--far more patient than any Realtor® I have known. She also dealt with some tricky inter-state transactions due to our coming from another part of the country. What a friendly and efficient lady to work with--do hire her!

My wife and I just relocated, outside of Austin. Kate Best made this an easy transition. We told her about our needs and she went to work. Each time we met she was more than prepared and her attention to detail was spot on!  Kate was able to find us several options. Thanks to Kate, we are now sitting in our mini-mansion with the huge yard.  Kudos to Kate Best. Job well done!!!!

I recently bought a home with the assistance of Kate Best. Kate was wonderful! She is pleasant and down to earth while also being no nonsense and championing for us with the seller. It was the "BEST" home buying experience!!

Working with Kate made our home buying experience an absolute pleasure. She walked us through every step of the process and made sure that we understood exactly what was going on through it all. She is incredibly knowledgeable and dealt with our home builder to make sure that we got everything that we asked for. She was at every walk around for our home and took detailed notes to be sure that they followed through with every promise prior to final purchase of the home. She was always available for us when we had questions and had answers that made sense. I would strongly recommend her to all friends and family.

Could not have done this and kept my sanity without you, Kate. Will shout your praises from the rooftops! Our homebuying experience went so smoothly because of you! Thank you for everything!
