I love Kelli! She is so passionate for her clients. I can’t even count the millions of ways she contributed to our experience. She got us top dollar for our house (full asking price in 2 or 3 days), and she negotiated and saved us thousands of dollars on the sale of our home and purchase of the next house. Her dedication is second to none. If you are looking for a Realtor, you have my word you will be happy you called her!

My wife and I worked with Kelli Whirlow for over a year until we found the perfect house for us. Kelli is an ultimate professional and a genuinely caring person with a passion for real estate and helping people find their perfect home. She has a great ability to build trust, she was able to listen and hone in on what we wanted; what were non-negotiables, nice to have, etc. and help us through the entire journey. Kelli was patient, offering advice, and her professional opinion in a way that we always appreciated as a subject matter expert. She never said no to an appointment to see properties, she kept us engaged, upbeat, and when we finally found our house, she was able to work with all the teams involved to successfully close in 30 days with minimal back and forth and made it a smooth process. I would absolutely work with Kelli again and would highly recommend her to anyone who is looking for an agent in Austin!

Kelli Whirlow from Realty Austin is a true miracle worker!! In one weekend we were able to find our dream home all because of her help. Kelli's east coast smarts and nurturing southern hospitality are an excellent match for homebuyers and sellers!! We highly recommend Kelli and Realty Austin.

Working with Kelli was a fantastic experience. I was introduced to Kelli through the Realty Austin web portal. My wife an I had a made the decision to move from California to Texas about two years ago. About a year and a half ago I started to look at properties in and around Austin on the Realty Austin website. Kelli had reached out to me, and I explained our situation. We were moving eventually, but at that moment were just browsing to see what was out there.

Our move was delayed due to me changing jobs, but Kelli still maintained contact. Every couple of months she would check in and see what our progress looked like. Never pushy, just letting us know that she is ready to help us with anything we may need. After a year and a half, we finally listed our house and in 3-days we were under contract. This was way faster than we had anticipated. I reached out to Kelli and let her know, and she immediately hit the ground running. Kelli worked her butt off for us. Taking our requirements and really trying to find us the perfect property.

Kelli is knowledgeable, informative, patient, and responsive. All the things I expect from a Realtor. She took the time to explain the differences between Texas and California real estate transactions and helped me understand the buying process here. We felt completely comfortable with her expertise and knew we could count on her to properly represent us as buyers. While we are extremely happy with our new home, when the time comes for us to sell this house, or buy another property, we will seek out Kelli.

Kelli Whirlow is amazing. She's personable and passionate about her job. She helped us find a place in Austin when we didn't know anything about the city and then helped us find our dream home. She's pretty awesome, and we highly recommend her!

Kelli is an excellent Realtor, and extremely patient, with my wife and I. We took over a year and other Realtors, to find our home. And the whole time Kelli offered advice and tips, and search tools, even when we were working with another agency, and not once did we feel any pressure from Kelli to commit to her or hurry up and find a house. I can honestly say that any and all future real estate needs we have will go to Kelli first and without hesitation.

I have been working with Kelli for over a year now. My husband and I went back and forth a lot on what we wanted to do, and Kelli was there for us EVERY step of the way. She was able to point us in the right direction and keep us from making any bad decisions that would later hurt us down the road. She never once pressured us to do anything or got upset with us for changing our minds so many times instead, she helped guide us and helped us make the best decisions for our future. Kelli’s attention to detail, her passion for what she does and her attitude are what make her the best Realtor out there! She genuinely CARES about her clients and the huge decisions they make. Kelli will go the extra mile for you anytime; she literally was on her hands and knees scrubbing and cleaning our house before pictures were taken (even though we had it cleaned- lol!). She cares THAT much and is that hands on. She was able to sell our house for MORE than what we asked for (and we were under contract after only a few days of being on the market) AND helped us get into our new house. The whole year we have worked with her she was nothing but kind, courteous and she always went above and beyond for us. I will only be using Kelli for our housing needs from here on out. We love her!! Thank you, Kelli, for EVERYTHING!

Kelli was awesome. She was always quick to respond and would always follow up. That is a big deal in my book. I would use her again in a heartbeat. She was recommended to me 2 1/2 years ago when I first moved to Austin. Even though I was not ready to buy a house at the time, Kelli would follow up with me every year to see what my living arrangement was like at the time and always offered her services when I was ready. She had impeccable timing, and I knew that she would be a great realtor just by her tenacity. She saved us money wherever she could and was our superhero until the end by ensuring the house was ready for our move-in. I couldn't thank Kelli enough. I would recommend her anytime.

We just recently purchased a home in Bertram, TX with Kelli Whirlow, and I cannot say enough great things about her. She was knowledgeable, attentive, and enthusiastic about finding us our first home. Do not think twice about using her to buy or sell your next home. She will take great care of everything! Thanks again, Kelli & Realty Austin :)

We worked with Kelli and her team through our very first purchase. We moved to Austin from oregon in November and they were able to help us get as much busy work started before arrival, she made the trip up to our area to show us so many homes sometimes multiple times and made the process seamless. We closed smooth with no issues and had such a great first time buying experience. Thank you Kelli and Realty Austin.

I worked with Kelli Whirlow to buy a condo in North Central Austin. As a first time homebuyer, I had a lot of questions about the process, and working with Kelli couldn't have been better. She was incredibly responsive from start to finish and went above and beyond to answer my questions and ensure I felt comfortable. Kelli is warm and personable, and she also has great negotiation skills. I had a wonderful experience working with her, and I would highly recommend her services. Thank you so much, Kelli!

We are very pleased with our experience in buying a home through Realty Austin. We worked with Kelli Whirlow and think she is great!

Her professionalism and knowledge of the Austin housing market made for a low stress buying process. She handled all the details in a timely and efficient manner. The home we purchased was in the area and price range we requested she locate for us.

We will definitely use Realty Austin for our future Austin real estate needs.

I chose Kelli Whirlow because I have known her for over 20 years.

Kelli is very good at negotiations and always goes the extra mile. She was always available to answer questions and listened to my opinions as well. Kelli has always had goals with her work and a very strong work ethic in every position I have known her to hold.

This is why I chose Kelli to represent me in buying my home.

If you are looking to buy a home it the Austin area, your search for a realtor should end here! I had the pleasure of working with Kelli Whirlow from Realty Austin and boy did she work to find my first home! She promised me she would find me a great home and I just closed on that home last week after only a two month search. That is amazing time in this sellers market in Austin. Kelli was sweet, kind, and a true professional. She was always available to answer my questions and concerns. I don't know how she ever slept. I am so grateful that I found Realty Austin and I am forever indebted to them for what they have done for me. I will continue recommending them to everyone I know searching for a home and I can't wait to work with Kelli again to purchase my next home!

I was lucky to work with Kelli, who was cheerful and efficient every step of the way. She went out of her way to make it an easy process, which was particularly helpful since we are out of state. kelli oversaw everything and found us a good inspector who took the time to explain everything to me during the condo inspection. She also contacted handymen, etc. to get us estimates on repairs that will have to be made.

Kelli did an outstanding job from start to finish and we were delighted! Thanks so much!
