About Kathy

Kathy relocated to Austin from the Dallas area over 40 years ago. Attracted to the then small college town for its abundance of outdoor activities and beautiful scenery, Kathy made a decision to put down roots in this wonderful city. Austin is where she married and raised her daughter, Jessica. Her family also includes her two dogs and one enormous Mainecoon cat!

Known for her energy and contagious enthusiasm, Kathy has learned to use these attributes to sharpen her strong negotiating skills. Developing trust, respect, and friendship from fellow Realtors, Title professionals, and lenders is key for how she handles business from contract to closing. This makes the process for buyers and sellers enjoyable, as well as successful.

Having cycled the wonderful designated roads in Austin for over 10 years, she finally completed her first Century Ride in 2013. She is passionate about her Yoga practice, enjoys art classes, likes to hike, as well as occasionally kayak around Town Lake. Kathy's happy to share the fun and exciting things to do out and about in Austin.

About Winona

Winona was born in Austin and is a 5th generation central Texan. She enjoys introducing clients to her hometown and the surrounding communities. Her natural affinity for design, staging, gardening and landscaping is an advantage to clients whether preparing their home to sell or assisting clients in envisioning the possibilities of their new home purchase. She is experienced with resale homes, as well as building custom homes on teams with architects and builders. If the perfect home happens to be a ranch (or ranchette), she can assist with locating the areas that might be best suited for your desires (ranch, farming, horses, vineyards/gardens, etc.), as well as navigating the sometimes-confusing world of wildlife and agriculture exemptions.

She has a deep connection to nature and animals and is passionate about organic gardening, bird watching, hiking, horses, cooking and traveling. Ask her about the next day trip you might take to a quirky Texas town, art shows/festivals in the area, the best restaurants and farmers’ markets, scenic hikes, plants for your garden or her favorite recipes using local ingredients.

Community Involvement

Kathy and Winona have always been involved in giving back to the community, whether volunteering or donating resources to local organizations. A portion of each transaction is donated to one of several worthy charitable organizations in the Austin area. They have an ongoing commitment to Foundation Communities, Habitat for Humanities, Hill Country Ride, and multiple animal rescue groups.

My husband and I worked with Kathy Jacobs to sell our home. Kathy is an amazing Realtor. She was extremely tenacious and, most importantly, HONEST about what it would take to sell our home. We were competing against new builds, and she was the champion for us. Kathy is so warm, lovely, and one of the nicest people I have ever met. Winona and Kathy are a dynamic duo. They helped us stage our home for photos in it's best possible configuration, and our home and pictures were available online very quickly after they were taken. Kathy and the Realty Austin team have the best combination of salesmanship and technology to get your house SOLD. I would highly recommend Kathy and Winona to my family and friends. Thank you, Realty Austin, and most importantly, Kathy Jacobs! Stellar service!

I just worked with Winona Barron to both sell and buy a home. She helped us buy a great home for less than I expected to pay, handling negotiations around the inspection expertly. She then made great suggestions for contractors and lenders as we took on a major renovation project; six months later helped us sell our existing home. The Realty Austin team knew how to help us stage our home and make small strategic updates to get the best price. Their photographer was excellent and made our house look it's best. Winona helped us navigate multiple offers, challenges during the inspection, the whole process. I'm confident that we got the best deal we could have on both transactions, and was relieved to have Winona working on my side so that I could lean on her experience rather than having to do a lot of research myself during a stressful time. On top of all that, she was just a delight to work with and frequently would bring a little present for my daughter to help get her excited about our upcoming move. Winona provided excellent service, personal attention, and deep expertise in the Austin market.

My husband and I live in Arizona and were purchasing a home in Texas trying to do as much as we could long distance. We met Kathy Jacobs with Realty Austin through a referral from a friend. I felt confident working with Kathy from our very first phone meeting, and she delivered above our expectations throughout the process. We had very specific requirements and only 45 days to find a house and Kathy made it happen! We never doubted she had our best interest at heart every step of the way. Her real estate experience and knowledge of the Austin area was invaluable to us. Thank you, Kathy!

I can’t say enough about Kathy's professionalism when buying or selling on my behalf, her unbelievable knowledge of whatever it takes to determine if a house is worth buying, to do to get a house ready for market, and everything in between. She also knows neighborhoods and into which neighborhood her client will fit. Her worth ethics and honesty are above reproach. In the midst of extreme personal challenges, Kathy still took care of me as if nothing were going on in her life. And like she always says, she doesn’t go away after the sale (thank goodness for that)!

It was a pleasure to work with Winona Barron of the Kathy and Winona Team. She was prompt, efficient and thought of things I needed to do before I did them (or probably before I ever would have). During the whole process, she went over and above every time in providing us information and helping us focus on the issues we needed to address. If you recognize stars, Winona should go to the top of the list.

Kathy Jacobs is an exceptional agent. She exceeded our expectations. Kathy made our whole buying transition a positive and seamless transition. Her experience and professionalism really shined through. We truly felt we were in great hands. She is a mama bear and looked out for us. Kathy overlooked all transactions and inspections. We couldn't have it without her. She is very knowledgeable and was always available to us for any questions. Kathy is a go-getter. We needed that in this hot market. We trusted Kathy 100 %to take care of business. I never had an agent as outgoing and hands-on as her. We highly recommend Kathy Jacobs.

Kathy has been WONDERFUL! We worked with Kathy when we built our first home in 2014. We were not even planning to put our first home on the market. It wasn't until a house in our neighborhood came up for sale with the perfect pool in the backyard. With that being said, we had to move fast! Kathy guided us every step of the way, which resulted in two very smooth transactions. Kathy is very personable, and such a go-getter- which is exactly what we needed. We will definitely use the Kathy and Winona Team in the future!

Kathy and Winona were exceptional through every step of the selling process and found the perfect buyers for our home. We needed guidance, but we also got above-and-beyond care with our home while we were out of state. Everyone is happy!

It’s a real pleasure to recommend Kathy and Winona. We worked mainly with Winona, who had helped my brother sell his condo in Austin years ago and purchase a house with his wife. Based on their experience, we came back for more!

Winona was very engaged, totally professional, and as helpful to us as she could possibly have been. Each step of the way, she kept us informed about what needed to be done, what was coming up next, etc. Her advice was always spot-on. And she really gave 110% to the showing the house, spending long hours meeting with prospective buyers and their agents (a record number, in her experience of showing houses!). She met with our neighbors and followed up with folks online as well as in person. It was an all-around, fantastic performance, and the results turned out much better than we’d imagined. We’re convinced it was due not just to the “hot” Northwest Hills market, but to Winona’s exceptional efforts.

Can’t sing her praises enough. She inspired total trust, and that trust was fully rewarded. I’m sure Kathy must be a wonderful agent; just didn’t get to know her as well. We would absolutely work with Kathy and Winona again and have already begun recommending them to others. We also plan to stay in touch with Winona about another possible sale of property that belongs to our family.

I must say it has been a true pleasure working with and getting to know Kathy Jacobs. I say 'getting to know' because she really is my friend. I don't know if she has a lot of clients who she meets and becomes friends with, but I can honestly say that she is my friend, and I really appreciate that.

Kathy is very honest, up-front, caring and I can tell that she has my best interest at heart. Kathy took the time to get to know me and my interests, lifestyle, hobbies and family even. She really worked hard to make me happy in the buying and selling of my property. It took me 6 months to find my house in Austin, and that was because Kathy would not let me settle. She knew what I wanted and took the time to find it and was honest with me regarding price, location and other elements. I know sometimes during the buying and selling of homes you have to hear things that you don't want to hear, but I can see the reasoning behind it and can see that it is because Kathy truly cares.

I don't remain in contact with many friends in Austin, but I really hope to maintain contact with Kathy. We are on the same wavelength, and I really love her. I hope she continues to prosper in her real estate career.

Kathy Jacobs and Winona Barron are a fantastic team. I knew I was in good hands because of their in-depth knowledge of the Austin real estate market and their attention to detail throughout the sale process. In addition, their professionalism and friendliness made for a pleasant experience. I highly recommend Kathy and Winona to anyone looking to buy or sell in Austin.

I have worked with Kathy Jacobs and Winona Barron for 18 years. They have helped me purchase three homes and sell 2 of them. They have always been reliable, professional, and very enthusiastic. Most recently, I had to move quickly to purchase a new home. Kathy bent over backwards making this happen! I reached out to Kathy on January 21st. I closed on my house February 29th!! With a VA loan no less!! It seemed like every time a roadblock popped up, Kathy was right there taking care of it. She worked long days, weekends, even when she was out of town to make sure everything was fixed. She called in favors for repairs, reached out to everyone involved, and made this transaction happen! I highly recommend Kathy and Winona for everything real estate! Not only will I always be loyal to them, but my sister has bought and sold with them as well.

I have worked with Winona Barron for three real estate transactions, and she is the best! She has a terrific eye for quality, with the ability to see things I'd NEVER notice about a house, and she knows the Austin area extremely well. We sold a house last year, and she made the process as easy as possible and walked me through many aspects of the preparation. When it came to my recent purchase, she was on the ball, moved quickly in this competitive market, and got me a terrific deal on a beautiful house that I absolutely love. Not to mention, I didn't have to look at a million houses all over the map...she had a better sense for what I'd be happy with than I did sometimes! I went on showings twice and bought the sixth house I saw. Winona is always extremely responsive, well-prepared, and generous with her time. She is also honest and straightforward while being friendly and very personable. I highly recommend Winona Barron, and will continue to work with her so long as I'm in the Austin area!


February 1 2016

Winona and Kathy came highly recommended, so when it was time to find our new home, we knew who to call. We were not disappointed. Winona was thorough and extremely knowledgeable. When we looked at a property, she let us take it all in first, then had good feedback that helped us make our decisions. I could always count on Winona to get back to me immediately and I still can call her for any questions or concerns. The agent on the other end was less than great and she hounded him regularly to make sure we were getting everything taken care of. I cannot say one negative thing about our experience with her. We found our forever home and it was easy with their help.

We could not have been happier with the service Kathy and Winona provided with the sale of our house.

From the first meeting to the last, we trusted their abilities and felt our house was well considered in the market we had available. Their professionalism, skill and involvement in analyzing the market and finding appropriate buyers did not disappoint. Also, I have to thank them for looking after the house for us while it was being shown and for finding a perfect seller for this little jewel in a changing Austin. We will not hesitate to recommend Kathy and Winona both for their excellent service.

They don’t need to change a thing to the “Kathy and Winona Team." It’s perfect!

Again with all our thanks!

I can't say enough great things about Winona. She helped me sell my first house earlier this year after my divorce, a house she also helped me buy. She told me at that time that selling is not nearly as fun as buying, and she was 110% correct. But she walked me through the seemingly never ending stream of bumps, frustrations, and turmoil without batting an eye, and at the end of the day, it was done and we got an incredible deal. And so when it came time to buy a house for this new chapter of my life, I didn't think twice to reach out.

She supplied me with information I didn't even know I needed from the very beginning, and truly helped me see and understand where I stood and what my options were. She responded to calls, texts, and emails promptly, and I never once felt in over my head. I can't emphasize enough how much trust she instilled because of the way she conducts herself.

Beyond the nuts and bolts of buying a house, she did a phenomenal job finding suitable properties. She spent time working with me to articulate what I was looking for, and then showed considerable patience compiling lists and planning viewings. On the viewings themselves, her expertise and keen eye were beyond appreciated. She kept me informed about potential red flags, issues in certain neighborhoods, resale considerations, and countless other things I never even considered.

I put in an offer on a house, and she encouraged me to bring in both an inspector and an engineer due to some shifting. The foundation ended up being in awful shape, and I opted out of that deal, but I was so grateful for, and impressed by, the way she walked me through that. I believe her instinct saved me from purchasing a money pit. She gave me some time to "mourn", and then was right back at it with more options when I was ready, which is how I ended up with the house that I truly love.

I also want to take time to mention her partnership with Kathy. There were many times when their teamwork and excellent communication with each other helped us make decisions on neighborhoods, properties, etc. I was working with one agent, but had the benefit of her team. And when Winona took a few days of much deserved vacation, Kathy seamlessly stepped in to navigate the final days of the contract negotiation and amendment. I couldn't believe how well that worked considering I'd not even spoken with Kathy before that time. That's impressive communication and teamwork!

Their professionalism, experience, efficiency, communication, and humanity made buying a house less stressful. The process felt like the happy experience it should be, rather than one of doubt, worry, etc. I will recommend Kathy and Winona to anyone looking to buy or sell.

Kathy and Winona helped us both buy and sell our homes and they were awesome! Kathy is extremely positive and always full of energy. Winona is very detailed and offers a strategic approach. We had a somewhat challenging agent on the selling side and they handled the situation with utmost professionalism. We will definitely be using Kathy and Winona again when the need arises.

Sue and I put our trust in Kathy and Winona completely when we listed our home and it was well founded. From the beginning we were impressed with how well they understood our goals and how well they represented our interests. Because of the uniqueness of the property it took an extra amount of patience on everybody's part, but they never showed signs of impatience or encouraged us to take a lower offer than they knew we would be happy with. Kathy and Winona worked like it was their own home and we really appreciate the job they both did. I was very impressed with their professional knowledge and guidance at every turn and was very comfortable through the whole process with them as our representatives. Based on this experience, I expect they are very successful and it is well deserved.

We absolutely loved working with Winona. She was always available to us and kept the lines of communication open at all times. She worked incredibly fast and we believe was a huge factor in getting us our dream house. Winona listened carefully to what we wanted and did not waste our time. Would highly recommend! Also very knowledgeable about Austin and surrounding areas.

I'm very pleased with Winona, who was my buyer's agent in 2001 when I bought my house, and my seller's agent 14 years later when I sold the house. Both then and now, I am happy to recommend Kathy and Winona to others, and have done so. The house sold for more than I was even originally thinking to list it for, so their market knowledge helped me pay the closing costs and then some! Even so, the house was under contract within 48 hours of listing.

I've worked with Kathy several times over the past years and have always found her to be extremely professional, personable, knowledgeable, and dependable. I wouldn't consider using any other realtor. What stands Kathy apart from everyone else (in addition to the qualities I just listed) is her concern for her clients. She looks out for their interests and makes sure they are completely satisfied. And this doesn't end with the closing - she follows up on any unresolved issues and is always available to answer questions. She has the ability to make a budget home buyer feel just as important as a buyer with unlimited funds. She is the best!

We have been buying and selling homes with the Kathy and Winona team for 17 years. I started working with Kathy when I was single and trying to find a safe, yet up and coming area to buy in and it turned out to be a great investment. We have recommended them to many friends over the years who had successful transactions. Their knowledge of Austin is amazing and they give solid advice. They are professional and work very hard. Our last home sold in 2 days for more than the asking price.

This is the 4th house I've bought with Kathy over the past 13 years. I am continuously impressed with her market knowledge, hard work, reliability, wonderful personality, and high standards. Kathy's enthusiasm for her work and concern for her clients' interests is evident, and this makes working with her such a pleasure. She inspires such confidence and is so diligent that the entire process is stress free. I wouldn't even consider purchasing from any other agent. She is the absolute best!


March 1 2015

As a previous on-site builder’s sales representative I have very high expectations as it pertains to customer service, follow through, and professionalism.

The first experience I had with Winona Barron was in 2000 when I purchased my first condominium. I was living in California and needed a knowledgeable person to educate me on the Austin market. Needless to say, she was instrumental in helping me make a purchasing decision that best suited my needs.

In 2011, my husband and I approached Ms. Barron to help us find a home for my mother. Again, all I needed to do is communicate what we wanted and she was off and running to find us the perfect home. Her ability to understand her client’s needs separates her from many other agents in Austin, Texas. If you have a price point and your needs exceed this amount, she is the first person to state the truths and explain why. I value her honesty, but most of all I trust her words. In August 2011 we closed on our second home with Ms. Barron and were extremely happy!

Two years later we found ourselves needing big change. We were living in Singapore and having friends live in our Steiner Ranch home. After four years abroad we knew it was time to sell and buy again. Since Ms. Barron had earned our trust, we asked her to begin a preliminary search for housing in Austin. Once we returned to Austin in 2014 she exhausted all measures to find us a home that met all our needs. She successfully sold our home in Steiner Ranch and found us a home in Barton Creek. The patience and professionalism she showed us was incredible. We simply could not be happier with the years of experience, knowledge, and kindness Ms. Barron has shown us. Ms. Barron goes above and beyond the call of duty to support her clients and I know without a shadow of doubt that any transaction involving her will be swift and correct.

I can only hope as a broker that you celebrate and acknowledge individuals such as Ms. Barron for the great agents in Austin are far and few between. Ms. Barron does not focus on writing a contract and going to the closing table. She focuses on listening, educating and satisfying her client’s needs which in turn will always earn her repeated business.

I would recommend this individual to friends and family 100%. Realty Austin is very fortunate to have such an asset on their team! I look forward to Ms. Barron handling all our future real estate needs.

Kathy Jacobs has been our real estate agent through five transactions since 2002, and she has made every one them not only manageable but fun. We tend to get stressed out when dealing with moves but Kathy's got the energy, competence and professionalism we have relied on to get us through the process, every time. This has never been more important than when navigating those more troublesome challenges that come up occasionally when buying or selling a home. In those instances Kathy maintains a positive attitude while laying out facts and discussing options, and this has always helped us stay positive, too. She is real estate magic, if only we had an advocate like her in all areas of our lives!

Though we have not worked directly with Winona much, she has provided necessary support and input to assure successful transactions. Kathy and Winona are obviously a great team!

We worked with Kathy and Winona to purchase our home in South Austin back in 2012 and it was a wonderful experience despite working with a negative seller. Then, when life changes brought us to selling our home just two years later we went back to Kathy and Winona and it was the best thing we could have done! They are a dynamic duo! Kathy is always so upbeat and positive and Winona has a keen eye for details. Our home sold for over $50k more than we purchased it for just two years before and it sold quickly. We listed on Friday and had an offer on Monday! Thanks so much Kathy and Winona and Realty Austin!! We'll be recommending you to all our friends and family still in Austin.

Kathy was a wonderful blessing throughout this process. From the time we met her in February and began to discuss what we wanted, through educating us on the crazy Austin real estate market, through researching neighborhoods, visiting homes, and listening to our likes and dislikes, through finding a home that we optioned without even seeing, all the way up to holding our hands and reassuring us through a long-distance closing, we felt confident Kathy had our best interests at heart and was pulling out all the stops to make sure we were going to be happy with our new home.

Her extensive knowledge of the Austin market as well as her keen observations on various neighborhoods were so helpful. As buyers, and this is only the third house we've owned in 37 years of marriage, we lacked the experience to really take a comprehensive, analytically look at the house, the neighborhood, the nearby amenities, the potential for additional development, even the presence of a lift station near one of the houses we visited. Kathy evaluated every aspect of each house and location and gave us the pros and cons in a kind, personal yet professional manner. As things worked out, our home in Tennessee sold to a cash buyer and we had three weeks to move. Kathy kicked into overdrive (and we thought she was already in overdrive, but her overdrive is impressive), found the perfect house, and made it all work. After the final decision was made to buy the house, Kathy sent us an email we had provided her early in the process with the long list of things we wanted in a house, and the house we bought had everything on the list except the one thing we'd changed our minds about anyway.

When we arrived at our new home, the first things we saw were baskets of treats, wine, and other goodies with a thoughtful card from Kathy. Kathy went above and beyond the call of duty throughout every step of this process, and we are so grateful to have had her energy, commitment, and knowledge working for us. We feel we've made a friend for life.

I don't know where to start. I love the Kathy and Winona team. Kathy is a ray of sunshine, the type of person that just makes you feel better being around her. And they are great Realtors, too. Every bit of advice I got was 100% on target. This is the fifth house I've sold in my lifetime, and it was the best experience ever. Realty Austin is the best realty company EVER.

I could not possibly be happier with the experience that we had with Kathy and Winona. They were absolutely phenomenal in every aspect and I would not hesitate to recommend them or Realty Austin to any of my friends or family in central Texas looking to buy or sell a home. Thank you very much for the time and effort that your team put in towards selling our home. I know it can be a highly stressful process for sellers (as it was with the realtor we had prior to engaging Kathy and Winona), but they made the whole process easy and stress free.

We wouldn't have a house exactly where we wanted to be in this crazy market without the Kathy and Winona Team's input, guidance, and experience - and that is a fact. Kathy and Winona have been wonderful throughout the entire process. From the beginning, with setting up just how insane Austin's housing market was to preparing us for looking at properties, we felt we were given the crash course that enabled us to move swiftly into our final purchase. By the time we made the offer, my wife, Adrienne, and I felt so informed and prepared - We were ready for anything. And that is all a testament to Kathy and Winona's devotion and loyalty to get us in a house. With them, not only did we find amazing Realtors, but we gained valuable friends that we will remain in contact with forever. The other amazing thing about Kathy and Winona, for me personally - is that they have found houses for four other friends of mine - that's incredible. I would be out socializing with them, and then we would all immediately shift into bragging about how amazing Kathy and Winona are! So, their influence with me and my circle of friends is apparent, even when they're not there! I wanted to make sure that Realty Austin knows that they are one of the best parts of us purchasing a house here in Austin. We gave them a very complicated task: Finding a cost-effective house in Travis Country, in one of the most aggressive markets ever, and they did exactly that. We got the house we wanted, for the price we wanted, and we all couldn't be happier. Kathy and Winona even helped with the insanity of the loan process and was completely thorough with post purchase needs, like rekeys, insurance, and HOA information. They are extremely hard workers, but even kinder and caring people - they would even hold our three month old, Lucas, while we got a chance to peek around in the properties. He loved them, too! I'm happy to have met Kathy and Winona, worked with Kathy and Winona, and now brag about Kathy and Winona! We truly valued the platform that Realty Austin gave us with this process and will definitely refer both the company and the Kathy and Winona Team to anyone looking to buy here in Austin. Everyone should be buying a house with you guys! There is no other way as far as we're concerned.

I am a first time homeowner/lot-owner, and I want to say that I am extremely happy with results of my experience with the Kathy and Winona Team. They are amazing and did a great job of helping me through what is a very scary process. I would and will recommend them to friends and family, or anyone else in the Austin area looking to buy/sell a home/property. When I do need to make my next real estate purchase or sale, I will be knocking on their door without hesitation. Also, I plan to remain friends with both Kathy and Winona over the years regardless.

Anthony Marquez

I met Kathy when she was the realtor for a friend of mine. I remembered how hard she worked to get the very best deal for my friend and what a genuinely caring person she was.

When I was looking for a realtor for this present project, I remembered Kathy and called her. She and Winona are the BEST. Not only do they know their stuff, they look out for their clients in every possible way. They are straightforward, honest, and work incredibly hard. They makes sure I understand all the details about a transaction and they will stick with their client through until the end. I am so lucky to have found them as realtors and as I consider them now, friends.

I referred them to a friend of mine who feels the same way and I know I will ALWAYS refer them!

Shannon Matley

I recently bought a home with Winona Barron of the "Kathy and Winona Team" as my realtor. Winona exceeded ALL my expectations. This is the 4th home I have bought and, by far, my best experience with a realtor. She knows the Austin market extremely well. She was accurate and thoroughly honest. Winona was always one step ahead of me: working with her from the time of looking for a home to the closing was an experience unlike any other I have had in the real estate market. I recommend Winona without exception...she knows her work very, very well.

Kathy Jacobs and Winona Barron are fantastic!!!! Our house was listed online on Friday and we had 2 offers by Monday and have since closed!!! It was amazing and we are so grateful. Thank you again for such a wonderful performance!

Natalie Crockett, Facebook Review

We loved working with Kathy & Winona! They were very knowledgeable about the Austin area real estate and lifestyle. They were patient with us as we looked at many houses and did not try to talk us in to buying just any old house. They listened and understood exactly what we were looking for.

Bev & Galen Metz

We bought our house with Kathy and Winona when we moved to Austin in 2006 and we sold with them when we just recently moved away. One of the best realtor teams around!!!

Sean Love, Facebook Review

As a prior Kathy and Winona client, I had high expectations. They met and exceeded them all. They got my listing up quickly and I had a contract within 2 days. Closing was delayed due to my HOA not getting FHA certification renewal in time, but there was nothing Kathy and Winona could have done about this. Bottom line, we did get the renewal and got closed. I was working primarily with Winona until she had surgery, but Kathy took over without a hitch. Kathy was very helpful in getting a rush put on the paperwork so that I could sign Friday so that I didn't have to return (which would mean a 400 mile round trip from/to Austin) to sign Monday with the buyer. I am relocating to west Texas but would work with Kathy and Winona again if I ever return to central Texas.

Winona and Kathy are fantastic. They are thorough in their research, balanced in their feedback about prospective homes, and know how to close a deal. They were such a joy to work with on top of everything else. I cannot recommend them enough.

Jaynie Degnane, Facebook Review

Look no further! Winona & Kathy are unquestionably the finest Realtors we've ever worked with and deliver outstanding results. We relocated to Austin from Seattle, and they were with us every step of the way making us feel as if we were the only clients they had. Winona & Kathy conduct business with extremely high integrity and always in the best interest of the client. Working primarily with Winona, we very much appreciated her balanced approach to identify the best living situation for us regardless of whether we were going to buy a house or not. Her "above and beyond" approach to business included consulting with rental property managers on our behalf for interim housing, helping us integrate into the community, and continuing to service the relationship even after the deals were done. Winona later worked extremely hard on our behalf to find the perfect home in a very challenging sellers market. She is a savvy business person and excellent negotiator handling the biggest issues with seemingly relative ease. Even after closing, Winona & Kathy continue to provide our family support and guidance on local services with the aim of making our living situation the best it can be. The icing on the cake is her thoughtful engagement and consideration towards our two little girls. Thank you Winona & Kathy - we look forward to buying our next home with you!

Kathy is absolutely my favorite agent of all time. No matter the trying situation or number of attempts for an accepted contract, Kathy is upbeat and helpful. This is my fourth purchase with Kathy, and I feel like I'm working with a best friend. Right now we are in the process of preparing the latest purchase for rent, and I miss our daily communication with Kathy. I do look forward to our next quest for another rental in a year or so. I couldn't imagine doing all this with some of the agents we dealt with during my last two purchases. It is so obvious that Kathy LOVES HER JOB! Even right now I MISS MY KATHY!

Debbie Ford

Winona continues to be a pleasure to work with – she very much customizes her approach to work with me individually and Missy and I (we were just married) as a couple. Winona seeks to mitigate issues that could arise in transactions. She can be counted on to follow up on all issues that arise and uses her personal network to develop resolutions to mechanical/electrical/etc. issues real time.

I highly recommend working with Winona and Kathy! They Rock!

Winona and Kathy are the best in the business hands down. They are both extremely knowledgable, friendly, hard working, fabulous listeners (they actually remember everything we told them we wanted in a home!) and they absolutely know the ins and outs of Austin real estate. My family has bought two homes with them, both under very different circumstances.

The first home we purchased with Winona was in 2009, and we were pressed for time and needed to find a home in Austin within a few weeks. Winona did all the research before our trip to Austin (we were unfamiliar with Austin at the time) and narrowed our search to about 7 homes that met all our criteria and were more than adequate. One of these homes we absolutely loved, and bought of course and we have loved it ever since. But she didn't just find us the perfect home. Since we were out of town, Winona (and Kathy) handled the closing for us, and even came to our house twice a week to water a dying plant during the drought in over 100 degree weather! What other realtor would do that?? During the inspection, Winona's attention to detail is simply amazing. We have lived in the home for 3 years, and I'm convinced any small flaws in our home she picked out during the inspection and they were fixed by closing.

Our second home purchase with Winona was for our parents who are moving to Austin. They were in no hurry, and they also wanted to find "the perfect home" like we did and of course we recommended Winona and Kathy. Since inventory was down in Austin in 2012 and our parents were unwilling to compromise on any of their desires, it took many home showings and many emails back and forth about prospective homes (almost 6 months of searching) before we finally found our parents the perfect one! Winona emailed almost daily during this time about prospective homes, and she sacrificed many weekends looking over the small Austin inventory with us. She was so patient and kind! My parents are now closing on their dream home thanks to Winona and Kathy!

To sum it up, in my opinion Winona and Kathy give anyone moving to the greater Austin area the best chance of finding their dream home.

Thank you for allowing me to tell you about how AMAZING Winona Barron and Kathy Jacobs were as our realtors. They are simply the BEST realtors we have ever had! In the last 12 years, my husband and I have bought and sold 6 houses. We have had some good realtors in the past, but Winona and Kathy were head and shoulders above the rest. Excellent customer service. Incredible job and market knowledge. They both kept us updated every step of the way, recommended quality contractors for repairs we needed in our new home, and dealt with us in an honest, forthright way. They were so flexible in meeting with us, even when we had our 3 young children in tow. They consistently demonstrated professionalism and class. Their integrity, thoughtfulness, and kindness are a rare combination. I will HIGHLY recommend Winona Barron and Kathy Jacobs of Realty Austin to anyone I can. My husband and I could not be happier. We believe we received the best real estate service in Austin. Please extend our thanks to Winona and Kathy, and thank you for demanding such excellence from your people. They were a blessing to me and my family. I'm thankful for Realty Austin and the excellent work you do.

Dusty Kinslow, Google Plus Review

I can not express how grateful I am for Kathy and Winona. We joked that they are part Realtor, part counselor. When I'm in a place to buy a house in Austin, I'll be coming back!

Jenna Opperman

This is the 4th property we purchased with Kathy and Winona. They have also sold two homes for us so far. I've recommended them to at least six others who have had successful sales and/or purchases. Kathy and Winona are knowledgeable about the Austin market, know a lot about construction and have always recommended great people to work with us. We will continue to use and recommend Kathy and Winona.

Jo Anne Norton

I'm happy to describe my experience in working with both Winona and Kathy. I initially talked with Winona but was tag-teamed over to Kathy who's experience with multi's is greater. Winona was personable, attentive, knowledgeable, and professional. I felt immediately that I had found the right realtor(s) for me and chose not to pursue additional recommendations I'd gotten. Winona hooked me.

My dealings with Kathy were the same plus her aggressiveness on my behalf in this hot Austin market gained my confidence. As I'm an out-of-state buyer, Kathy had to go above and beyond, requiring extra time and energy on her part. She did this without complaint and with full assurance to me that my interests were in good hands. I have no qualms that the property I purchased, sight unseen,  is suitable to my needs. If I had to buy something sight unseen, I can't imagine anyone better to represent me.

Kathy has assured me her assistance does not end at close; this is not a transaction but a new relationship. Instead, her services and expertise (and the staff's) are available at any point in the future. Not only is that a welcome offer being new to town but I also believe this not to be an idle offer. I may just take her up on it!

To summarize, both Winona and Kathy made me feel like a $2 million client when, in fact, my budget was closer to $200,000 for this initial purchase.  I am planning to buy another property after arriving in town.  Not only will I look forward to working again with Kathy, but will highly recommend both Kathy and Winona for for any one's real estate needs.

Linda "Libby" Valenti

Kathy Jacobs and Winona Barron have been an absolute pleasure to work with. I have dealt with all types of vendors and professionals through the years, and this was hands down the best all around experience I have had when it comes to doing "business." Kathy and Winona were total pros from start to finish without feeling cold or impersonal. You can tell they have a genuine passion for not only their work, but for helping people in general. We feel truly blessed to have worked with such a special team.

There was a week or so where we just worked with Winona while Kathy was on vacation. Their teamwork was fantastic! Two totally different styles, but equally as effective and approachable. They make a great team.

In my opinion, both Kathy and Winona are huge assets to Realty Austin.

We will recommend Kathy, Winona and Realty Austin to anyone we know looking for a new home in the future.

Marc Bianchi

I had a great experience with Winona. I only met Kathy in the beginning, so I can't say too much about Kathy but I think she would've been great too. Winona was referred to me by a previous customer of hers. She was everything he said about Winona and more. She really gives more than 100 percent. I completely trusted Her judgement in all aspects of selling a home. She was great in the staging process too. She always kept me informed what I needed to do and what was going on. I really learned a lot and she made it pretty painless for me as the seller and told me up front what my expectations should be. Even though we went through a rough patch the last couple of weeks with the lender and the closing, I really didn't stress out too much because I knew Winona was on top of the situation. Yes, I will recommend her to friends and family and if I need the services of a real estate agent again, I will definitely ask for Winona again.

Thank you for giving me a chance to tell you about my experience about Winona. It will now be hard not to get a phone call from Winona every day.

Ginny Gersch

Kathy and Winona exceeded my expectations in every area.  The selling of my house was easy all because of their help.  I have already recommended them to many of my friends and will continue to do so as the opportunity comes up.

Dalene Beauregard

Winona Barron and Kathy Jacobs with Realty Austin did an awesome job handling my negotiation and closing in June 2012. They were able to successfully negotiate with the seller to get them to fix a few things like a couple of deficiencies and also got them to cover a couple of my line item closing costs for my new house. I would highly recommend Winona and Kathy to anyone because of their professionalism, honesty, forthrightness and practical nature. They are pros.

Kat, Yahoo! Review

Kathy Jacobs and Winona Barron with Realty Austin rock! Thanks to their valuable feedback, research, and guidance we were able to list our condo and sell it within 7 days in an economy that does not lend toward selling condos fast! They are the best tag-team realtors who work tirelessly for their clients. We highly recommend them to anyone looking for a realtor they can trust. Thanks for all you do!

Anonymous, Yahoo! Review

This review regards a specific team of agents we had the pleasure to represent us in our purchase of our home. We moved to Austin from out of state and the following is our experience.

Winona and Kathy are more than realtors with their expert handling of our transaction. They've been there promptly to consult with us on everything from showing, through purchase negotiations and closing. They've gone beyond our expectations with your extensive knowledge, customer care and quick responses. We will happily refer new business their way knowing how well they've handled our business. We like them. We like them a lot! It would be our pleasure to work with Winona and Kathy again in the future.

Sincerely, Elaine & Les

Kathy and Winona turned around a frightening situation with a previous agent into a pleasant experience. They sold my difficult floor plan house for an excellent price in a nearly impossible market. While showing me my next house to purchase, I've come to see how EXTREMELY knowledgeable they are in everything from foundations to decorations. Their experience is invaluable. I trust them. The unique benefit I've received is her wonderful friendship. I look forward to her continued presence in my life and my continuing efforts to refer them to anyone needing real estate services.

Eileen Haisler

We can't express how much we appreciate all the help Winona and Kathy have provided throughout our purchase and closing. We are well into our 50's and have never had such exemplary service from a previous agent. We will most definitely refer any future business to Realty Austin and the close associates who work with your dynamic team.

Elaine & Lester Lambert

I worked with Kathy and Winona and could not be more pleased with or more impressed by the efforts they made on my behalf. As a first time buyer I was entering confusing territory, but they were able to explain everything in an understandable way. During the whole process I felt great comfort that they were on my side. The honesty and integrity Kathy and Winona displayed were rare to come across these days and I will gladly work with them again in the future.


I've worked with Kathy and Winona for over 15 years now, and they continue to impress me with every interaction. They are absolutely the best agents anyone could ever ask for.

I can always count on Winona to guide me in the right direction. She knows my tastes and really cares about assuring that I end up in a home that I will love, and that will be a good investment in the long run. Not only does she make the purchasing process seamless, but she's there for you after the fact if any other issues arise with property ownership.

Lorena Gomez

Overall, I just think Winona is terrific. She knows her job, and she knows Austin. On this "transaction," I have to say I REALLY appreciated her knowledge of various resources--handymen, carpet cleaners, and so on. She saved me a lot of time and uncertainty in searching--and everyone she recommended was really top-notch.

Mrs. Margaret Edwards

I had received a recommendation from a friend to give Kathy Jacobs a call when I was interested in buying a home. Being a first time home buyer, I was pretty nervous about the whole process, but once I talked to Kathy she helped turn that nervousness into excitement. She is so honest and experienced that I trusted her to really help me find exactly what I wanted. I sent her an email describing my ideal purchase, and within days we were looking at homes, discussing likes and dislikes, and going over the logistics of financing. It's clear that she knows this business very well, and passes her knowledge along in an extremely helpful way. Just yesterday I closed on a house, and thinking back to that initial email I sent her describing my ideal home, it is exactly the home I wanted. I could not have been happier with Kathy as a realty agent and as a person, and I'll never call anyone else when I need help buying or selling a home.

Michael James

Moving from Los Angeles to Austin posed all kinds of challenges for me, one of which was I could only make 2 trips here to decide on a new place prior to purchase. Winona and Kathy not only met all of the challenges head on, they actually made this rather daunting task a pleasure. They understood incredibly quickly what it was I was looking for and was able to narrow down the choices so I could maximize my time in the city. My choice of home also presented several unforeseen problems but during negotiations Winona and Kathy used their superb skills to make it smooth and painless. Winona and Kathy was there every step of the way, from inspections to walk-thru and beyond. Their assistance in getting myself settled in Austin with all the best local knowledge has been more than I could have hoped for in a Realtor. I really could not recommend anyone better than Winona and Kathy to handle all your property needs.

John Witherspoon

They could not have provided better service! Kathy was top notch all the way! My husband and I live and work in another city but wanted to purchase a second home in Austin because we really enjoy the weirdness of Austin and the current economy made it affordable. From the beginning, Kathy had a good handle on what we were looking for and went above and beyond the call of realtor. As we searched for a home, we found Kathy to be extremely well informed on all aspects of the housing market, home buying, financing, maintenance, contractors and unforeseen expenses. Once we decided on a home, she was a valuable advocate during the negotiations and kept us informed every step of the way. She also recommended an incredible loan officer that worked very hard to make our experience a good one. I have endured several closings and refinances over the last 25 years...this was by far the best overall home buying experience I've ever had from the first viewing to the final funding of our much anticipated Austin home. My thanks and gratitude to Kathy for all her efforts to make it happen. Champagne anyone?

Jana Reeves - Bowen

Always either available or quick to reply to messages; knowledgeable about the neighborhoods I was interested in; always ready to show me homes and very proactive in finding good ones; very supportive and informative throughout an unexpectedly difficult closing process; frankly, she is just top notch.

Margaret Edwards

Working with Kathy to find my new home in Austin was wonderful. Kathy was extremely knowledgeable about every aspect of purchasing a home, so I felt confident that the decisions I was making were well-informed. She was supportive and helpful throughout the process. It was a real pleasure working with Kathy.

Roger Frantz

Positive, Knowledgeable, Professional and works for the client.

Holly Socha

I have worked with Kathy and Winona many time over the years. They are the very best. I have only good things to say about their efforts and hope to work with them again this year.

Bill Colburn

Winona and Kathy are wonderful realtors for our family. They are very professional and did their research to ensure we were paying a fair price for our new home. They encouraged us to ask for what was fair relative to repairs/price adjustments following inspections. They always followed up on questions and were readily available whenever needed.

Winona and Kathy have been our realtors for the purchase and sale of three homes over the past 15 years. Winona and Kathy have such an approachable personalities and are very knowledgeable and professional throughout the entire sale/purchase process. They genuinely care about meeting the needs/likes/dislikes of our family. Winona and Kathy are patient and always willing to meet/chat whenever we had questions or concerns. We truly appreciate Winona and Kathy's dedication to our family as their clients and feel well protected with them as our realtors.

Cavanaugh Family

We are first-time home buyers. Kathy and Winona went above an beyond to help us understand the purchasing process. Kathy and Winona were there for any questions or concerns we had. We truly feel blessed to have such wonderful realtors like Kathy and Winona handling the purchase of our home. Kathy and Winona are now members of our family. We have never been so happy!! Thank You Kathy and Winona!!

Andrea and Jaime Ramos

Kathy and Winona were there for me when I bought my first house 12 years ago, walking me through the process, sharing in my excitement and always keeping my best interest in mind. Naturally, when it was time for me to sell my home the first thing I did was pick up the phone and call Winona. Whether you work directly with Winona or Kathy you always know that you have both of them on your team, working with you to get you what you want and deserve. Their professionalism, warmth, care, expertise and eye for detail make them unparalleled in their profession. Anyone that is looking to buy or sell a home will be hard pressed to find a better agent, team, or resource. Thank you for all that you have done!

K. Priputin

Kathy was on top of her game. Always kept me informed on all aspects of the transactions. Could not have asked for better service!!! Most impressed with the thought that went into her job. Have told many people, if you don't use Kathy's service, you're not dealing with the BEST.

David O'Bryan

Kathy did a wonderful job of sharing her vast knowledge of the market with us and assisting us as first time homebuyers. Her honesty and willingness to go above and beyond to find our perfect first home was exactly what we needed. We very much enjoyed our time working with her, and are so thankful she was on our side. At our closing it was so refreshing to see how well Kathy worked well with not only us but the entire team. Without her I am certain we would not have the wonderful home that we do now. We recommed her every time we hear that a friend or colleague is in the market for a new home.

Casey Arnold

Kathy was phenomenal! Her commitment to meeting her clients needs and ability to "read" likes and dislikes is unmatched. It took us awhile to find my house, I am very picky, and she made the experience enjoyable, easy and fun. I have recomended her to a couple of friends and put her in my phonebook, I haven't met anyone who has their real estate agent in their personal phonebook. I will definately call her when I want to buy/sell my next home.

David Garcia

Kathy was AMAZING!! As first-time homebuyers with a modest budget, she could have easily spent very little time on us, but she was constantly available and helpful through what turned out to be a roller-coaster of a deal! She was there every step of the way with guidance, information and good advice! We could not have asked for anything more!

First-Time Homebuyer

When my husband and I bought our first home, we had no clue. Kathy and Winona took such good care of us, walking us through every aspect of buying a home. Two kids later, when we were busting out at the seams, we called on them again to help us sell our starter home and move up to a bigger home. They have kept in touch with us through the years, delivering goodies at Halloween, Christmas, etc. They've truly become more than just our Realtors..they are our friends! When our kiddos have grown up and it's time to downsize, we'll be calling on them again!

The Blackmon Family

Kathy and Winona are amazing! Not only are they on the ball professionally, they also have that wonderful personal touch. They were always available and no matter how confused or stressed we felt, one phone call to them made everything seem okay! They made selling our home a very positive experience. Thanks girls!

The Kirk Family

We always call on Kathy & Winona when we are thinking about selling a home. Not only do they provide the utmost in professional services and guidance, but they also help us deal with the emotional roller coaster that sometimes accompanies the selling process. Most importantly, Kathy and Winona know how to strike a balance between getting us as much money as they can get for our property while making sure that we can sell the home within the boundaries of our time frame.

The Heidel Family

Stephen and I had a great experience working with Kathy and Winona. We had used their services to purchase our condo. They did an excellent job so we asked them to help us again when it was time to sell it. We know that their experience helped us find the perfect place in just one weekend of looking. And, when it came time to sell, the marketing was perfect. We ended up with a full price offer after just four days on the market! Because of their team approach to real estate, one of them was always available. Selling a home can be stressful at times and Kathy and Winona were always available to answer all of my questions and calm my worries. Their patience was greatly appreciated. They are genuinely thoughtful and kind people and we have and will continue to recommend their services in the future.

The Barnes Family

Our RE/MAX agent in Colorado gave us several Realtor's names in Austin and it just so happened that the first ones we called were Kathy and Winona. We flew to Austin and spent 3 short days viewing every home we could squeeze in! They paid very close attention to what we wanted, not wasting our time showing us homes that wouldn't match our needs. We ended up buying our dream home thanks to them! But, their services didn't stop there. They met with the builder, took zillions of photos and emailed them to us, and were were able to be worry free in Colorado as we prepared for the move. Kathy and Winona took care of the details for us! We will be forever grateful! We will use Kathy and Winona in the future if we need them and you can be sure we will recommend them to everyone we come in contact with in this beautiful State of Texas!

Richard and Karen Dolbeer

It was very stressful for us to go through the process of buying and selling homes simultaneously, but Kathy and Winona calmed our fears. The team approach was wonderful! In our case, Winona handled the details of the sale of our current home and did an incredible job! The virtual tour and other marketing materials were outstanding - our home sold for full asking price w/i 36 hours! Kathy guided us through the purchase of our new home, zeroing in on suitable homes as we were very picky buyers. She gave us honest feedback on all the houses we viewed. We found our dream home and they were even able to negotiate a lower price! Thanks Kathy and Winona! We couldn't have done it without you!

The Prestons

Together, Kathy, Winona, and I have successfully completed 7 real estate transactions over the last 9 years, both buying and selling. In each transaction they were always on top of everything! I have always had great respect for their decisions and knowledge about real estate and the Austin area and market. They truly care about their clients. I cannot express that enough. I would never think of using anyone else than Kathy and Winona! They are very hard workers and both demonstrate excellence in their work ethic!

Diane and Scout

Our house sold in one day. Winona and Kathy provided expert assistance in staging and marketing. They are very pleasant to work with and extremely professional. They gave us sound advise as well as excellent recommendations for plumbers, carpenters, electricians as we settled into our new house. Winona and Kathy were recommended to us and we would unhesitatingly recommend them to anyone wanting professional realtors. It was a pleasure working with them.

Stephen and Deborah Littrell

Kathy and Winona are almost like family after helping us to buy and then sell two different houses in the Austin area. We would recommend them to anyone looking to buy or sell and will be sure to use them again should we be in the market.

Micheal McKelvy and Kim Bishop

Kathy and Winona did a wonderful job marketing our home. They were courteous throughout the process and kept us informed about market changes. They really stayed on top of our account. I would highly recommend them to anyone needing an agent.

Todd Amthor

Winona and Kathy enhibit the rare combination of strong real estate expertise combined with the commitment and interest in the individual. They exemplify excellence in both the strategic and tactical aspects of their business. We give them our highest recommendation.

Rob and Susan Herb

Winona was prompt, honest and easy to work with. She went above and beyond our expectations, and we couldn't have asked for a better realtor experience.

Nathan and Sarita

Six years ago, Kathy and Winona sold me the house I listed this summer, and they really impressed me then. When it came time to sell, I contacted with the two of them. I live in Washington state, and Kathy and Winona offered the hand-holding that I needed because of the 2500 miles between me and the house. I was also significantly impressed with the the method and reasoning they used to come up with the listing price. And, before I signed with them, I did a lot of comparing of Realty Austin's and their Web sites to other realty firms' Web sites, and the quality of the Realty Austin photos compelled me to choose them ... and I'm soooo glad I did! I had only one contact with Winona ... when she and Kathy came to the house to talk to me about listing the house with them. They both gave excellent feedback about my plans for staging and advise on what cleanup and upgrades would and would not get me the best return on my investment, with Winona taking a bit of a lead here. They kept me from spending quite a bit of money unnecessarily. From that point on, I worked with Kathy ... and Kathy was awesome. Kathy kept me in the loop and comfortable throughout the whole absentee ordeal of selling the house. She checked on the house 2-3 times a week, even when she wasn't planning on being in the area, and kept me informed about what she did and how things looked. She helped me find great contractors and volunteered to check out the completed work. My primary goal when I listed the house was to get a quick sale ... yes, in this demoralizing market. Kathy and Winona helped me price the house RIGHT. We set a price that led the market; not one that chased it. And, I had the first offer before the sign was even in the yard. A second offer the second day, and a third offer the third day. And a signed contract the fourth day. Of course, Kathy and Winona believe that the pristine appearance of the house and its great staging contributed to the quick sale at a bit over the asking price. We had a contract in 4 days. Kathy's advice with pricing, listing, handling the inspection report, everything, was right on the money. Kathy was persistent with the escrow company during closing, ensuring that appropriate progress always continued. If anything slipped through the cracks, I don't know what it could have been. From listing to closing, Kathy anticipated my needs and the buyer's wants, and kept me ahead in the race. I can certainly recommend Kathy and Winona without qualification.

What's My Home Worth?

No computer algorithm can accurately determine the price a home will sell for. By providing an address below, I will instantly show you what similar homes are selling for in your area and give you three automated price ranges for the address entered.

This represents an estimated sale price for this property. It is not the same as the opinion of value in an appraisal developed by a licensed appraiser under the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice.
