Katy was fantastic! She exceeded our expectations. She was quick to respond, always made sure we understood each step in the process (first-time buyers here) and made the entire experience seamless and stress-free. We will for sure be working with her again if we buy/sell another property!

I really can't even imagine our home buying process being any better. Every single person that Katy suggested from our mortgage guy to the arborist was outstanding. Her communication with us was quick, clear, and genuinely friendly. Her negotiating skills during our option period saved us thousands of dollars. We loved her whole approach to conducting business with the sellers, and we never felt uncomfortable or stressed by any of her suggestions.

Katy Hall has guided me through the sales of three houses in Austin, and I could not recommend her more. She definitely knows her business and is ever vigilant to assure clients the most professional representation. Katy is sensitive to her clients' needs and respectively listens and recommends the best approach to each step of the way of a sale process. Professional cannot be applied to a more competent, sensitive realtor. I'd buy another house just to have her by my side. Stupendous!

Katy Hall is our realtor. She helped us to sell a residential property and buy a commercial property. She is incredibly kind and pleasant to work with. She is also highly efficient and competent.

She has gone way above and beyond to make this process as easy and low stress as possible and to keep things moving along. Katy is an excellent communicator and always responds quickly. I highly recommend her for all of your real estate needs.

I had a great experience with Katy. She and I have a fair amount in common, and I hope we remain friends in the future. The house buying process was pretty painless with her by my side.

Katy was incredible. She was able to step in and help out where I needed it and trusted my judgment when she needed to do that as well. I’m very appreciative of how networked she is helping me with all of the services that a homeowner needs, from lenders to locksmiths and everything in the construction field. She is a very valuable person to have on your team and on my new home team. I will recommend her to everybody I know who is looking to buy or sell a home.

Working with Katy Hall was a great experience. She was always very quick to respond to any questions, emails and any meeting we needed with her. Always has a smile on her face and very knowledgeable of the area. I would be extremely quick to recommend her to anyone looking in the Austin area.

Katy's help was invaluable to me when I listed my condo for sale. The price she suggested turned out to be just right. There was an offer in one day. Katy also knew where I should concentrate on any improvements. In addition, she went above and beyond to make sure negotiations were timely. I will recommend Katy to anyone who needs a realtor. She is the best!

Katy is the best of the best. I interviewed 3 Realtors, all whom were recommended by trusted friends. Katy blew everyone out of the water! She was the only one of the three who knew about the developments I had already looked at and even informed me that she had worked with the developers of one of the properties and had been considering being their Realtor. She is well connected with the Austin community and knows the real estate market like the back of her hand. But more importantly, she is one of the nicest people you will ever meet. She is genuine, caring, and personable. Her memory and attention to detail is astounding. However, if you need someone to step up and whip people into shape (like I did with my lender), she can be a bulldog when she needs to be (and I mean that in the nicest way possible). She was my biggest advocate and supporter throughout the home-buying process. She kept communication open between all the parties involved and maintained a professional demeanor. I had several last-minute glitches during my closing process due to mistakes made by my lender. Katy worked tirelessly to ensure that I would be able to move in when planned and worked overtime to do so. Actually, I don't even know her hours because she was available at ALL times of the day and night (she sent in my offer letter around 10:30pm because I waited so long to decide and she wanted to make sure I got my offer in ASAP so no one could take my house away from me). I could go on and on about Katy, but my main point is: go with her as your Realtor. I promise, you won't regret it.

Katy has been reliable, professional, friendly, and has gone the extra mile for me this far. I am comfortable recommending her without reservations.

Katy was wonderful to work with. I will be working with her again in the future and would recommend her to any one wanting to buy or sell.

I just retired from a 30 year career as a full time residential sale person and one of the top in my field. I have high standards and thus expect a lot from others. Katy delivered the goods.

She is a hard worker and knows her business well. She continues to educate herself to stay on top of the current marketing trends. She has a high ethical standards which is on top of my list for choosing to work with someone. Katy gave me information (backed up with data), that I needed to make good choices for myself. She was very professional and level headed through the whole escrow. Even when curve balls came our way.

I was very impressed with Katy's commitment to communication and her communication skills. I found her to be very patient and willing to explore all possible ideas. Thank You Katy!

Trying to find a place to live in a city you have never been to is hard. We were lucky to find Katy Hall. She came equipped with great knowledge and a roledex of helpful persons who provided us with estimates for possible changes. She went out of her way to make the process easy. Katy was also a great advocate for our best interests throughout the process. We were really happy with our experience and will highly recommend her to anyone looking for a solid, knowledgeable real estate agent.

Being new to Austin, Katy Hall was referred to my wife and I by a trusted friend who was born and raised in Austin. Katy is the best real estate agent we have ever worked with in ANY City. Katy was so helpful, experienced and knowledgeable about not just the housing market but with expertise in coordinating visits, organizing showings around our busy schedules and providing exceptional insight helping us navigate a very difficult real estate market by knowing each home and every neighborhood. Katy listened to all of our needs, wants, and concerns. She is responsive, honest, bright, cheerful, always positive, smart and downright lovely! Katy provided exemplary, personalized service that vastly exceeded our expectations! Katy Hall is your best bet to finding your home in Austin. I look forward to referring Katy to our friends and family. THANK YOU KATY!

Katy Hall was my listing agent, and she went far above and beyond what I expected of her. Her integrity, hard work, and honest advice culminated in me getting exactly what I had hoped for. I can't recommend her enough. Thanks Katy!

We had a wonderful experience with Katy! This is our first home, so there was a lot of new information to take in, and Katy really made sure we understood it all and she helped us get the best deal possible. I would definitely recommend her and Realty Austin to anyone I know that is looking to buy/sell a home.

What can I say, this was my second time buying a home and Katy was very informative, patient and kind. This sale went very fast as I was needing a home by Christmas for my family celebrating our first grand-baby. I cannot express how happy we are in our home. Thank you Realty Austin very much for hiring a person like Katy! She definitely stands out on her own. Thank you!

Katy was super helpful and well informed. She outlined the process to us in an organized and simple manner and always had us up to date on the next steps. I would highly recommend her and definitely appreciate our time with her throughout this whole process.

Katy is a smart, sensitive realtor. She knows her trade, supports her client fully, and makes one feel that the best deal for her client is promised and is fine hands. She presents the most professional work in Austin.

This was my second time to work with Katy Hall. She is extremely professional and knowledgeable. She is also responsive, detail oriented, and proactive. I can't recommend her highly enough and have recommended her to other friends as well who had experiences similar to mine. She is truly an asset to Realty Austin and a great representative of the real estate profession.

Katy Hall was awesome! And continues to be so. She was attentive, helpful throughout the process, and on top of everything. She used her wide network of professionals to help me at every step - getting bids for likely repairs for example.

Could not have been a better experience.

Katy Hall is a great Realtor. Last year the market was crazy competitive, with lots of people competing for the few homes available in my price range. It was really hard for an average person like me to find a home, but Katy stuck by me, showed me dozens of houses, helped me make a bunch of offers, and walked me through every step of the way. She stuck by me and kept trying to help me get into a house even though I was picky about location and price, and my house hunt was dragging on over a year. Finally, one day she called me up and helped me jump on a house the minute it came on the market. I finally got my house and I owe it all to Katy.

Katy Hall provided exceptional assistance for our remote purchase. We did everything over the internet, email and phone from Honolulu to find and purchase a house in an up and coming area for our son to use while attending UT. The search functions on the Realty Austin website were useful in locating some potential properties, but it was Katy that acted as our eyes and ears as well as providing insights into various neighborhoods that made us comfortable with our final selection. Her connections in Austin made the inspection, loan and closing processes straight-forward and timely. I look forward to visiting Austin in the near future to thank Katy in person for all the help.

Katy Hall was awesome to work with. She was always on the ball, giving us timely info step by step so that we never felt out of control or anxious. She was very professional and welcomed and answered all my questions. She was quick to respond to requests to see homes. I highly recommend going with Katy!

My wife and I were recently looking to relocate to South Austin due to career changes, and while looking for available homes, we got in contact with Katy Hall of Realty Austin. We worked with her from start to finish, and we couldn't have asked for anyone better. We provided her with the budget we were working with, our desired location, as well as the type of home we wanted, and she immediately came through with several promising listings. As soon as we came across the home we knew we wanted, Katy gave us all the advice necessary for putting an offer together to maximize the likelihood of the offer being accepted by the seller. Our offer was accepted the next day, and Katy was there to guide us through the rest of the process including the inspection, getting all of the utilities and insurance in order, and having everything ready for closing so there would be no problems the day of closing. While providing us assistance through the buying process, Katy wasn't calling us every hour of every day, and she didn't try to force us to make quick decisions by being pushy. Instead, she allowed us to make the decisions that were best for us and provided invaluable feedback to all of the questions and concerns we had along the way. It is evident from working with Katy that she is an expert in the Austin housing market and in real estate in general, and it was really comforting to have someone of her expertise on our side making sure every part of the process went smoothly. Katy was also very pleasant to interact with, and we highly recommend her to anyone needing to do business in the Austin housing market.

After 2+ years of looking for a place in Austin with Katy Hall, we finally just closed on a house that we love. Katy was so patient, helpful, and fun, as well as super-knowledgeable about neighborhoods, house maintenance, and financing. Plus, her contacts in the business (mortgage brokers, inspectors, etc.) were also really helpful, fair, trustworthy, and very responsive. I would not hesitate for a second to recommend Katy--she rules!

Katy is a true professional. I have worked with several Realtors before, and she delivered the goods like no other Realtor I have worked with. She is very knowledgeable about Austin real estate and gave me lots of ideas based on my preferences. She kept me updated throughout the process and was proactive. She is also easy to reach and a great communicator.

John B.

Katy Hall was awesome! She somehow worked seamlessly with both me and my boyfriend... same time, different properties. She even responded around the clock while she was home with the flu. She adds a very personable and caring touch to her professionalism. I will recommend her to anyone buying or selling!!

Sarah Wilson, Facebook Review

As an out of town buyer, my situation was difficult, but Agent Katy Hall was my on-location expert, creatively handling negotiations with a calm demeanor in a timely manner. Even during an eleventh hour crisis with the lender and underwriting, Katy was reassuring and on-hand to offer her expertise and professional advice. She was a benefit during every process of my home buying experience – while shopping for my dream home, negotiating the offer, and during the contractual and lending period. Thank you Agent Hall, if I ever sell, you will be the real estate agent I call!

M. E. Miller

Katy Hall is the kind of realtor who makes a complex process--with multiple moving parts—a lot more fun than stressful. She helped us buy a house that is perfect for us, guiding us along the way with insight, based on extensive experience, into the neighborhood, the market, and the trends happening in Austin in general. When it came to negotiating to buy, she was a top-notch professional and helped us get an amazing deal, with all parties happy with how it turned out. At the same time, she also helped us sell our house; the timing involved with the two transaction was of course tricky, and if it weren’t for her impeccable organizational skills and 24/7 availability to walk us through each detail, it simply wouldn’t have happened.

One other thing I need to say about Katy Hall: Her passion for her profession is palpable. Her energy and enthusiasm for meeting our needs never ebbed. She inspires trust and confidence at every turn. It was truly an enjoyable experience working with Katy to find our new home and sell our old one. It’s why we call her our real estate doula, and will recommend her over and over again to anyone we know.

Katy Hall was my listing agent while I was selling two homes. My situation was quite unique and she handled everything in stride, even going beyond what was required or asked of her. Katy is knowledgeable, energized, very thorough, and so pleasant to work with. Such a bright, shining star.

Wade Beesley

I had the distinguished luck and pleasure of having Katy Hall as my Realtor. I say 'luck' because she was a word of mouth referral. I was nervous and I was assured that she was not a fly by night, used car sales type. I discovered this to be the absolute truth and more. If I had to define Katy my words are: highly knowledgeable, honest, patient, ethical, thorough and extremely dedicated to client satisfaction.

Katy gracefully allowed me to take my time looking. I had told her from the start, that while I am not independently wealthy, I was not going to settle nor be pushed into buying something I did not want. Above all, I did not want to be pressured like I had by previous Realtors. I took my time, Katy never gave up and I couldn’t be happier than I am now with my home. She let me take my time and never failed to go above and beyond to ensure I was getting, not only what I wanted, but for what I was paying. She truly went above and beyond what I ever could have asked or hoped (I’ll spare the details of her numerous phone calls to people/agencies all to save me time and money). I will, without hesitation, refer Katy to my friends and family with full confidence they will share the same experience as I. The pleasure of working with Katy has been, and literally is, all mine.

C. Caudill

As a first time home buyer I was nervous and excited about my venture into the unknown. I was referred to Katy Hall by a friend who went on and on about how wonderful, informative and the NO PRESSURE style that Katy possess. As I went though my process of finding a home, Katy was there every step of the way, I must have called her a million times. My process took some challenging turns, had it not been for Katy, I would have given up. She stayed calm and helpful, on top of everything with nothing slipping through the cracks, giving constant encouragement that it would all work out.

As a single woman, it can be daunting to try to wade through all this alone, but Katy was there and understood everything I was going through. She has a remarkably bubbly and easy going personality that feels like you are simply taking a very knowledgeable friend along while purchasing your home. I look forward to recommending Katy to everyone. I have never raved so much about the quality of service I received from start to finish. She continues to check on me, help me find resources for taking care of my home, and answers any other questions I might have. If you are looking for a top quality, down to earth, intelligent, no pressure agent, who knows how to negotiate the best deal and handle anything that comes your way, you will never be disappointed that you put your trust in Katy Hall.

Jennifer Bayne

Katy Hall was an absolutely key part of my buying any house and especially the one that I love! From our first meeting she did a wonderful job of explaining the process and clearly answering my questions. She actually met with me over a year before I was actively looking, to explain the process to me. I never felt any pressure working with Katy. She is a great listener and was wonderful at helping me brainstorm decisions, options, and priorities. Katy is very approachable and has a great positive demeanor. I regularly felt like her professional and kind approach helped create smooth interactions with positive outcomes with everyone. Katy had great recommendations for every step of the way from mortgage companies to inspectors. As a single woman working at a wonderful but not well paying job, buying a house could have been an incredibly stressful time. With Katy’s help and support it wasn’t! I have and will continue to recommend Katy in a heartbeat.

Harley Gambill

In May of 2012 we decided to buy a house. We had no idea how to go about it, who to call or where to even start. A friend recommended Katy Hall. Katy was awesome. We met with her and she was wonderful from the start. She answered all of our questions and was with us through every step of the way. Her contacts and knowledge helped us tremendously. We know for a fact that if it hadn't been for Katy, we wouldn't have bought a home. Her professional manner and love of real estate were apparent. She truly loves her job and she is great at it. If we ever intend to move again (which we don't) we will be contacting Katy to be our agent again, and we will recommend her to all of our friends.
