Keri Chmelik

Keri Chmelik

Broker Associate

Keri works on the Jones Team with Michelle Jones and Thaddeus Jones.

Mission Statement

Keri strives to make her clients' real estate transaction as simple and easy as possible to ensure they can focus on the things that really matter to them and leave the home buying or selling details to her.

Experience

Keri has enjoyed helping her clients in the Real Estate industry since 2001. Her career began in the mortgage lending field as a Loan Processor, Office Manager, and Mortgage Loan Officer. In early 2005 Keri assumed the role of Operations Manager for her husband's home construction and remodeling company. Since devoting herself fully into her role as Realtor and now as Broker Associate, she has been a multi-million dollar producer and continues to build her solid reputation in the Austin area real estate markets.

Education

Keri graduated high school with high honors in her hometown in upstate New York. Unsure of what career to pursue, she moved to South Carolina where she began her journey into the residential real estate world, working her way up the ranks in a local bank and then Mortgage Broker. Keri has focused on a variety of classes and courses ranging from Business Development to Finance in order to hone her skills in the real estate industry.

Specialties

Keri specializes in Lake Travis area homes and all of Northwest and Southwest Austin. She is married to a custom home builder and remodeler, so she has had the privilege to be involved in each step of the custom home building processes, from the early steps of lot selection, design and financing, to delving into the construction progress and finally, the finish out phase. The past several years have allowed her to be immersed in the architecture and design of their own custom homes that vary in style from one to the next. This unique perspective gives her the ability to comprehensively assist her clients that may be interested in building a custom masterpiece. Or for those buying any home, Keri's experience with the inner workings of houses can help her ask the right questions and to truly serve as an advocate for her clients. Keri's mortgage finance experience also serves to assist her clients to be sure they're getting the best loan options for their unique circumstances. She understands that buying a home is quite possibly the largest investment a person ever makes, so understanding the finance and lending aspect allows her to guide her clients to a lender that is progressive, fully understands the financial industry and will look out for their clients' best interests.

Community

Keri and her husband Cameron are involved in a worldwide volunteer ministry work and also donate time, efforts as well as monetarily to disaster relief work around the world.

Personal

While Keri grew up in small-town New York state and lived in the Carolinas for several years, she has been trying to catch up on all the wonderful things Austin has to offer since arriving in 2003. Keri and her husband, Cameron love to entertain friends and family over a home cooked meal and a glass of wine or possibly a BBQ & fire pit. Away from Austin, Keri can be found on safari somewhere in Africa, sailing the islands of the Caribbean or possibly exploring somewhere altogether new.

Milestones

September 2017

Michelle Jones recently helped us buy our first home, and we had a great experience with her. As first-time home buyers, we did not know much about the process. She was very helpful in educating us on the different details and patiently answered all of our questions. Michelle was meticulous in pointing out the pros and cons of buying new versus old houses. Her expertise around home buying and timeliness were very impressive, and we would definitely recommend her to our friends.

Keri Chmelik was amazing to work with. She was extremely helpful, knowledgeable, but most of all very professional. The flyers and prep work that she had created for our house was absolutely stunning. It almost convinced me to buy back my own house!

Keri has been very helpful through this entire process; plus very professional and efficient. We really could not have asked for a better realtor to assist us with the sale of our home.

Keri Chmelik - by far the best agent ever. I used her site for years to watch the Lakeway market. Then one day we met out of fate as she was helping a fellow agent out and helped my mother in law look for a house. She was so helpful, kind and knowledgeable. Over the last year she has been on the rollercoaster with my husband and I trying to find land in Lakeway. Happy to say we just closed on 1.93 ac. So happy and she will be helping us sell out house around April of next yr. Great lady and a pleasure to work with!

Keri did I great job for us. She communicated every step of the way and made the closing a “piece of cake."

Keri was very responsive and was available to ease our emotional concerns through the entire process of selling and renting our next residence. It was very helpful to have a professional of Keri's caliber representing us.

Keri exceeded our expectations yet again and we feel very comfortable referring Keri Chmelik to our friends and family! She was so very thoughtful and responsive. She made selling our house and building a new one a great experience. She helped us negotiate and made sure we were being taken care of by builder. She truly is the best!

My wife and I had the pleasure to work with Keri Chmelik. No one could ask for a more professional or responsive agent to work with. She was always on top of our requests and ready to give us advice when we needed it. We really relied on her expertise of the Austin area to find the right location for us and we are very happy with the house we selected. She was very helpful during the buying process motivating the sellers to work with us when needed. She has a light touch with her clients but knows when its time to add pressure to the other side of the table to get her clients what they are looking for. When we purchase another house in the Austin area we will work with Keri to do it.

Keri Chmelik is the best agent I have ever dealt with! Professional, caring, diligent, and extremely knowledgeable. She helped us when ever we needed questions answered even when it was late in the evening or on the weekend. She got our house sold quickly and smoothly. Thank you!!!

Mark C., Yelp Review

October 2015

Keri is the best realtor and has gone above and beyond her job role to make every sell or home purchase a great experience. We had good friends that were realtors that we could of used but we decided Keri was the best fit for us. She answered all my hundreds of questions with a smile. I learned a lot from her and look forward to closing of our house. She was extremely prompt to respond which I loved! We are so happy with the whole experience because of how great Keri was and still is with purchase of our new home.

We loved working with Keri. She was great! She knew the market well and was extremely helpful - especially to two people like us who would've gotten very lost in the paperwork. She made it very easy. We would definitely recommend her to friends - in fact, we already have. She listened to us and took what we wanted into consideration, and then guided us through the process. We would definitely use her again!

I have worked with Keri three times this past year, and I have to say that Keri is amazing! She is professional, knowledgeable, patient, honest and a great communicator! All three experiences working with Keri have gone so smoothly, and I couldn't be happier with the awesome work that she has done! She and Rachel were with me every step of the way, and especially this time as I was buying a home by myself for the first time, and I knew nothing.

I would also like to add that Rachel is equally as awesome, and that Keri and Rachel make a great team!

I will absolutely recommend Realty Austin and the Keri Chmelik Team to friends and colleagues looking for a realtor.

My wife and I have bought and sold 9 properties over the past 20+ years. This was by far, the best experience we have had. Keri Chmelik and her team of professionals Rachel and Ryan stayed closely in contact through the entire process. They held open houses and just delivered beyond our expectations in the shortest amount of time that we have ever experienced. Our home was one of the largest on our street and the asking price was more than the smaller homes in the neighborhood. Keri valued the house at a higher price per foot than we had expected and came through with flying colors. Realty Austin also had the very best marketing program that we have ever experienced. We had another home in escrow with a fairly short contingency period. We feared that we might not be able to sell our house and close in time but our fears were erased completely and now we can look forward to our purchase of the house we will be able to live and retire in. We just can't say enough good about this whole process. If we could give a 10 star review, we would.

Keri went above and beyond to help us sell our home and purchase a new one. She is extremely knowledgable, patient and professional. Keri and her team are very responsive and made buying and selling easier on our family. We would recommend them to anyone and would use the Keri Chmelik team again in a heartbeat!

It was a pleasure to work with Keri. This is the second property she helped me buy. She responds quickly and is very professional.

Kristi Addington

September 2014

Keri was fantastic to work with as well as Realty Austin itself. Ended up selling and buying a house with her team.

Great attention to detail super fast response and great troubleshooting skills as well as working through barriers as things became complicated on both the buying and selling of each house…not a Realty Austin issue, or Keri issue, or my issue, just odd things with the buyer and sellers we were dealing with. Keri took point and bulldozed through those issues to make everything land on time.

She is a great asset to Realty Austin and I will use Keri again in total.

Mark Schofield

My husband and I couldn't be happier for our home. We feel Keri went above and beyond our expectations in helping us find a comfortable home. I'm sure there are other things I've forgotten that I should add, but at least know we are very happy with all the work Keri did.

I would recommend Keri Chmelik in her field of expertise to represent anyone needing a Realtor. She made our buying experience very pleasurable, because of her knowledge, attitude, and ability working with others to achieve successful results. She did an outstanding job working with our legal counsel, and others to achieve our goal to purchase a home to share with our family.

My wife and I loved working with The Keri Chmelik Team. Keri and Ryan have always more than exceeded our expectations. They are not only the consummate professionals, they have also been considered as dear friends. They are always so kind and are genuinely concerned for our best interest.

I can't say enough about how much we enjoy working with them and will continue to do so.

It is my sincere pleasure to let you know how professional and knowledgeable the Keri Chmelik Team has been in selling my two properties in Steiner Ranch, Austin, Texas!

The Keri Chmelik Team has proven to be excellent in their manner of dealing with difficult incoming buyers and situations that were unexpected. They are very hardworking and dedicated agents to have on your side and have always represented my properties and my wishes with the utmost of ethics and success in closing the transactions. I will be always grateful for their knowledge of building and of the real estate business in general.

I wish that I could have the Keri Chmelik Team on my side of my future property buying but we have moved out of Texas and back to California. I have made new friends in the Keri Chmelik Team and my door is open to them anytime in the future!

The Keri Chmelik team is the best, and could not be better. From start to the end they were always there and are still there.

Loyal Lowe

We were very happy with the Keri Chmelik Team as our realtors, we would definitely recommend them to others. They did a great job of finding our house and negotiating settlement.

Cary Wright

Keri Chmelik is excellent. She is the very best REALTOR you can ask for.

Jonathan Marcus

Keri Chmelik is the best agent in the history of the universe!!!!!

Adam Lerner

Wow, what a pleasure to work with Keri. Very professional and pleasant. She was always available when we needed her to show property and had plenty to show us too. Very responsive. By all means, she exceeded our expectations and I have already recommended her to several people. I know she is a busy person, but she always made us feel as if we were her only priority. Not a gift all agents have. Looking forward to working with her again in the future.

Ellen Kaye Vent

We enjoyed working with Keri.  We live in Argentina but wanted to find a nice house for a good price to buy as an investment and a place we may want to live someday.  We have been considering this purchase since May.  Keri has been patient with us, very helpful, and professional.  We would recommend her without hesitation.

Kristi Addington

Keri Chmelik did an AMAZING job of finding my husband and I our 1st home! It was even more difficult for us because we live in Houston and were moving to Austin. Plus we had issues with our lender and Keri was so knowledgable that she was able to answer all my lender/financial questions as well! She has a wonderful personality and a caring heart! Her unique service exceeded all of our expectations. We would refer Keri to ALL of our friends and family!!

Looking for a retirement home in a distant city can be quite a challenge. After visiting the hill country just west of Austin on a holiday, my wife and I began to think it might be a nice retirement destination, but didn't know much about it. I came across Realty Austin via a casual Google search, and decided to give them a call. In retrospect, that was a great decision. They connected us with Keri. Over a handful of visits spanning 3 months, Keri demonstrated an unparalleled level of professionalism, friendliness, helpfulness, and patience. We started out with a high degree of uncertainty, not knowing for sure whether we wanted a home or a lot, how far from Lake Travis, how far from Austin, what level of neighborhood development, etc, etc. Keri patiently showed us a large number of options spanning all of the above, and explained the various pros and cons of each, which helped us zero in on a final decision that we are very happy with. She also helped us through a maze of paperwork all the way through to a successful closing. In short, it is my pleasure to give Keri the highest recommendation, and I would certainly refer to her any friend who may consider a real estate opportunity in Austin in the future.

Always responsive. Provides good advice. Calm and relaxed approach. Effective negotiator.

James Fuchs

Keri did it all and always without any hesitation. No request was too great or too small.

One unique and extremely important benefit is Keri understood ME. At all times, she just knew where I was coming from. In her resourcefulness of taking the time to understand me as her client, she was able to direct the type of home I was looking for. And, not just a "home", but, what was NEEDED for us as a family and our individual needs encompassing the entire package of neighborhood, church, and community. Never did she give the impression that any request was too insignificant. It was always about me no matter HOW LONG IT TOOK to find the perfect home!! I knew what I wanted and she was right there with me without any pressure EVER. Keri is a top notch professional but also a genuine, honest, person. Her even keeled, always smiling disposition calmed down any trepidation I encountered in my search. This is one smart, efficient, diplomatic young woman who can hold her own and then some. Her strength is in her poise in navigating to find the right path to your home.

Jennifer & George SanFilippo

We think Keri did an excellent job. We had a lot of traffic through the house, and was always available to lend insight and advice. We are happy to have had Keri as our selling agent.

Keri was able to give us a good price range and evaluation of our home in order for us to sell in a short amount of time. We have relocated and priced our home at an aggressive range, which Keri was a good part of. She really does know much about her business, and with an honest manner. Truly a pleasure to work with such an agent.

Heidi & George Palatine

Keri was very helpful. She went out of her way to make sure it was a smooth transition and took time out of her schedule to make sure we had everything we needed.

Hali Amezquita

Keri spent a lot of time with me when I was just looking and not really ready to buy. When I found "the house" she ran down every detail, answered all my questions and connected me with all the people I needed. Keri was always available, provided all needed information and located an inspector, lawyer, etc. all of whom were reputable and did a great job.

Betty Welch

Keri is very professional but at the same time very personable. And, because of her mortgage background she was able to handle last minute problems that arose at closing.

Cindy Hargraves

As out of state buyers, Keri served as our eyes on the ground. We met with her initially and discussed our needs and vision. Keri identified houses that met our requirements, reviewed them with us, then went out and took literally hundreds of photos, which then helped us narrow down our list.

We were able to visit all of the houses on our “short list” over a weekend visit, and made an offer at the end of that visit. Keri’s insight into the locations, construction and condition of the homes made a big difference in the quality and efficiency of our experience. A joy to work with, Keri made our home purchase a pleasant and successful experience! Highly recommend her to anyone in and out of state!

A.M.

During our recent cross-country relocation to west Austin, Keri was an absolutely wonderful and professional real estate agent. She listened to our family needs for properties, neighborhoods, schools, and other preferences, and she provided us many options which met our desires. From our initial discussions through closing, Keri communicated with us during every step and made the entire home buying process smoother than we have ever experienced.

Marie & Trey Vann

Keri Chemelik recently helped us navigate the Austin real estate market in search of a holiday home on Lake Travis. She was an absolute delight to work with. Whenever, I contacted Keri via email - she was always quick to respond. After meeting our family one weekend - she immediately knew exactly what sort of home would best suit our needs. She then started researching and visiting several homes on our behalf and was completely honest about their suitability. After a very short time she found us a foreclosure that was both perfect for our family needs and a fantastic investment opportunity. She handled the negotiations professionally and with care. And she was very thorough, assertive when necessary, and attentive to detail. I would recommend Keri to anybody looking for a realtor in the Austin area.

We are delighted to write this testimonial for Ms. Keri Chmelik (Keri). After living in Asia for 10 years, we decided to relocate from Tokyo to Austin. Not having lived in this area before and having no contacts whatsoever, we started an internet search for a home in Austin from Tokyo.

After contacting a few realtors through their websites, and getting the brush off (call us when you are in Texas), we came upon Keri’s website. We noticed that her website was different. Keri went into details on how she will assist a buyer. We were encouraged and sent her an e-mail. We were delighted with the response. Keri wanted to know about the type of home we were looking for, price range, etc. We were very pleased with how quickly Keri grasped what we were looking for, and the pace at which she started identifying prospective homes in Austin and the vicinity. While we were reviewing the properties, Keri also began educating us about the various communities. This was very helpful in narrowing our search. After looking at numerous properties online, we narrowed our search to 10 homes that we were interested in viewing. Keri set aside more than enough time for our visit, we were not hurried through properties and not coaxed into making a decision soon. Keri was very patient and understanding. When we were ready to make an offer on a home, one of us had to return to Tokyo and hence much coordination had to be done between Austin and Tokyo. Keri successfully coordinated everything. Our offer was efficiently communicated to the seller. Keri introduced us to home inspectors and lawyers and put us in touch with utility companies. She coordinated a host of other things that we, living in Tokyo, could not have possibly done by ourselves. At the time of Closing Keri took it upon herself to minimize the work we had to do at our end. Throughout Keri was very resourceful and proactive.

After the closing Keri continued to help us with finding vets, doctors, churches, home improvement contractors, restaurants, and several other things that new residents need. Keri truly believes in building a positive relationship with her clients. We were so pleased with her work that we engaged her services to purchase the property next to us.

Keri is thorough in her work, very interested in the well being of her clients, and goes out of her way to make things happen for them. We are delighted to have had the pleasure of working with Keri. We intend to call on Keri for our next real estate purchase.
