REALTOR®

CNE

Kevin began his real estate career in 1999 doing apartment locating and residential leasing. He has a long history in the restaurant industry and was bartending at Chuy’s and Hula Hut when he attained his real estate license. With his past experience in customer service and the service industry, Kevin easily transcended into real estate. He moved from leasing over to sales full time in 2004 and has successfully completed over 350 real estate sales transactions since then. Kevin  has been in the top 5% of Realtors within the Austin Board of Realtors since 2009. He has been named a Five Star Professional Realtor, which identifies reputable and trustworthy Realtors in their markets, since 2010.

When working with sellers, Kevin is devoted to giving sound, honest advice on pricing and property condition.  Noticing that most of the “traditional agents” in the industry do not have a repeatable, proven process to sell homes for top dollar, Kevin brings in this type of  system that optimizes a seller’s chances of increasing their bottom line after a sale. Selling a home is about processes. Not promises.

When working with buyers, he is far from the “norm”.  Besides previewing every home before he shows it to his clients, his clients will take comfort in knowing that he previews over 200 homes on a monthly basis and knows his market better than anyone. He makes sure that his clients get the home that best fits their needs and ideals, and also make sure that they get it for the lowest possible price, with the best possible terms and within their necessary timeframe. With his CNE (Certified Negotiation Expert) certificate, Kevin is confident that he can make all of this happen time and time again.

Kevin splits his time between buyers and sellers; he likes the opportunity to mix things up and keep it interesting by working with both types of clients. His primary focus is Northwest and West Austin -- including both lakefront and luxury homes -- Cedar Park and Round Rock. He puts a lot of time and effort into working near home in Avery Ranch and near his office in the same neighborhood.

When Kevin has free time his first choice is to spend it with his amazing wife and two beautiful children. Besides real estate, his other passion is music. Kevin has been singing, playing and writing music for 12 years, mostly for fun  and friends and family, but who knows what the future holds? He also enjoys cooking, playing golf, exercise and working in the yard.

Milestones

April 2017

Kevin McCord at RealtyAustin helped my family and me through the process of buying our first home in North Austin. Going into the process I thought I had a pretty good idea of what I wanted and what buying a home is like – but it wasn’t “quite” as simple as I thought.

Kevin was patient and highly knowledgeable about Austin (has lived here for many years). He offered us a customized experience specific to our needs. Even when our ask/wish list weren't obvious Kevin had a great approach to help get us to think on a deeper level about what we really needed and wanted. He’s completely open to hearing what you have to say and continues to listen wholeheartedly when the next day you’re saying something completely different.

Throughout the whole process, I felt like Kevin was working hard to my benefit. He had to get creative to close on our dream home which ended up saving us. Another example of him going above and beyond was during closing we found out he had a 1 year warranty covered by the seller written in the agreement. I couldn’t recommend him enough for anyone looking for some peace of mind when buying a home! He has the confidence and industry experience you want in a realtor.

Kevin McCord was great! He was quick to get me answers to any questions I had. He was very detailed and quick to give me information before I had to ask. Kevin knew what I was looking for exactly in a house and took me directly to a house he knew I'd want. Kevin also was very professional and knowledgeable in helping me get things ready for the house to sell. With all of Kevin's input and advice, my house sold very quick without any delays or issues. I would highly recommend Kevin McCord to anyone buying or selling a home!!

August 2016

I just bought a house through Realty Austin and worked with Kevin McCord to find the perfect house for me, which we did. I relied heavily on Kevin's excellent advice and it did not fail me: he suggested a house I had overlooked due to low-quality and small pictures and advised me to underbid the asking price. This seemed risky at the time given the reputation of Austin's real estate market but we trimmed some off the asking price and the house appraised much higher than the price, which I can only attribute to Kevin's eye for a deal. I would whole-heartedly recommend working with him and Realty Austin and will eventually look him up when I'm ready to sell this place.

My fiancee and I worked with Kevin McCord from Realty Austin over the course of multiple months. He helped us find and buy our first home in Georgetown, and we could NOT be happier with Kevin's service, attention to detail, promptness, professionalism, and the relationship he truly built with us.

The process was so easy and fun with Kevin from the get-go. We looked at many houses over 3-4 months, he went to every single one with us, and he was honest with us about the quality of the home and neighborhood. If he thought that there was a better home waiting for us than the particular one we were looking at, he would kindly let us know - he pointed out certain areas of the home that may be an issue, or that we could potentially work with. And this guy knows his neighborhoods! He knew about trains or noises in the area, how much traffic is around the house and streets, the value, history, other homes that he's helped sell or buy. Or, if the neighborhood culture wasn't exactly what we had in mind, he wouldn't recommend it. However, he always let us know that it was ultimately OUR house and OUR decision. No pressure.

Once we found our home, he took care of mostly everything with the seller, seller's agent, contracts, amendments, recommendations for services (loan officers, home warranties, insurance, etc.), the week of closing, and much more. A process that I had previously thought of as stressful and cumbersome was COMPLETELY turned around to a simple, positive one.

We never seemed a bother to Kevin. Kevin was never a bother to us. Communication was quick, inclusive, and just right.

Since he's been doing this for YEARS, he had so much experience and knowledge about what to expect, what emotions we would have, how many times we would have buyer's remorse (and when!), and all else that made my fiancee and I feel safe and at ease.

If you're spending thousands of dollars and investing into the biggest purchase of your life... it better be done right. We were confident and never worried with Kevin as our Realtor. Kevin is the man!

It was great working with Kevin McCord in the process of finding and buying a house in Austin. He is really very professional and very good in providing really good guidance and advice. I could not recommend him more.

April 2016

Kevin was wonderful. This was our second time utilizing his skills and both times he was fabulous. He is extremely knowledgable. Due to his expertise, he was able to secure above asking when we sold our home. He recommended a checklist of "fixer-uppers" to apply to our home before putting it on the market. We spent probably $1,000 and made almost 50k after living in our home for only 3 yrs. Beyond the monetary assistance he provided, he is simply a wonderful person. We first arrived in Austin, from Chicago, and knew nothing. He provided us recommendations on Resturants, grocery stores, doctors, daycares, and basically everything. Kevin is fantasitc and he is highly regarded in my book.

Nicole DeGrave

April 2016

In every respect, Kevin exceeded our expectations and provided very exemplary service. Kevin worked very hard on this transaction and without his expert advice, responsiveness, and effort on our behalf, the transaction would not have happened. We are very appreciative for all he did for us in connection with this transaction! We would not hesitate to recommend Kevin to others or to use his services again in the future.

My daughter Aimee DeRiggi had Kevin as her realtor when she sold her home in Avery Ranch. She recommended Kevin to me when I was interested in selling my home in Austin. Kevin was very helpful in suggestions for my new home as well as for putting the Austin home on the market.

I appreciate all the effort Kevin put forth on getting the loan issues for the buyer resolved at the very end when it seemed the deal would fall through. I would recommend Kevin to anyone wanting to sell their home in Austin.

Cynthia Primrose

Kevin was referred to me by a long term co-worker and friend. He was extremely helpful and very professional. Kevin was always available, and he worked to get us the best deal on our new home. My husband and I will be happy to refer Kevin to anyone who is in the market to buy or sell a home!

Kevin did a great job representing us and negotiating the best deal. I would definitely recommend him to anyone who is seeking a realtor.

Kevin was wonderful. I would definitely use him again and recommend him to my friends/family. He always answered all my questions promptly.

Kevin McCord is the greatest realtor of all time. I just bought my first home and I doubt I could have had a better experience with anyone else. The thing that attracted me to Realty Austin was their website. I'm an IT geek so if you show me an easy-to-use site and allow me to research things on my own, you've got my attention. Shortly after I created a search, Kevin configured a profile for me and reached out via email and phone. I wasn't sure how to get started but Kevin put me in touch with a lender for pre-approval and then we met to start the search. A few more days passed, I was under contract and I closed on the house last Friday. Kevin laid out the entire process at the outset so there were absolutely zero surprises throughout the process. It was smooth from start to finish and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.

Kevin was excellent! Personable, professional, caring, down- to-earth, real, funny to name a few. Kevin is the best agent we've had. An agent in Austin was referred to us by the agent selling our home in Tomball. Given that it was July 4th weekend, the agent in Austin told us to call the listing agent if we saw a house we liked. So we did and it was one of Kevin's listings. He was very helpful from that initial conversation and since we had not signed a contract with the agent referred to us we, without hesitation, knew Kevin was going to be our agent. And we were never disappointed. The experience had some bumps but Kevin handled everything. As for the actual brokerage everyone was friendly and helpful.

July 2014

We really appreciated Kevin's hard work and attention. His assistant, Michelle, was also very responsive and helpful. Kevin also sold our previous home and arranged a lease back for us, so the timing worked out perfectly with our move. He was always very responsive to our questions (ALWAYS available via text), and kept us updated throughout the buying and selling processes. He was knowledgeable about the areas, especially about the demographics of Avery Ranch. Although we are staying put for a long time now, we would definitely use him again and plan to recommend him to friends and family. A very positive experience overall. Great Realtor!

Kevin McCord was absolutely helpful with our first home buying experience! We didn't know what to expect, but he walked us through everything and were quick to answer any questions we had! He was able to recommend a lender and helped with the inspectors as well! We were not only happy with him, but all of his recommendations! We will definitely be directing our friends his way!

Matthew

March 2014

Kevin McCord was a great agent throughout the entire purchase of my Leander home. Kevin and his assistant were right on top of every detail and readily available when needed.

This purchase was not a smooth one, it entailed engaging a different lender on our side early on and the completed sale of our Katy property which took an extended amount of time due to the Katy buyer, his agent and lender routinely having incorrect information on their papers. The Katy house took 78 days from time of accepted contract to close. Kevin was able to provide exemplary interaction between the Leander seller, currently in California, his agent and ourselves to smoothly transition the sale to completion in spite of the issues with the Katy sale.

He was a pleasure to work with him and he is a credit to Realty Austin.

Kevin has been wonderful to work with and we have thoroughly enjoyed working with him for the past 3-4 years. It has taken us a while to move here from NC, but Kevin has been very patient and quite helpful. We will definitely recommend him to any folks we know that would be looking for a new home. Realty Austin and Kevin have been very helpful to us over the past few years in locating a new place to live. Thank you very much for such a pleasant experience.

I have worked with Kevin McCord on multiple occasions. There is a reason I always call him when I need help in the real estate realm. His professionalism and customer service are second to none. He always delivers on expectations. So far in the past two properties I have sold using him we have pushed the market to garner absolute top sales prices. I would be happy to refer Kevin to anyone buying or selling a home in the area.

Ken Jackson

Kevin's experience was obvious, he was able to navigate through the process and answer any question -- his networking and contacts ensured getting my house onto the market and promptly sold -- he's the man! I don't know of anyone looking to buy or sell but will refer them to Kevin if the opportunity presents itself.

Kevin McCord was wonderful. His dedication and diligence helped us sell our old home and purchase a new home. Much thanks and bravo to him and the Realty Austin team.

Patricia Bourenane, Facebook Review

We really liked Kevin McCord from the time we met him but the best part was that he listened to what we had to say and formulated a plan accordingly. We wound up buying in The Ranch at Brushy Creek and love it. Kevin was there for the walk-through as well as closing and we could not have been more pleased with him. We would highly recommend Kevin.

Charles Christopher

Kevin McCord was amazing! Purchasing our first home he helped us every step of the way. I would recommend him to anyone, he really knows his business and we instantly felt like we'd made a new friend. Thanks Kevin!

Heather Hanks, Facebook Review

I recently purchased a home through Kevin McCord. First, never once did I feel like he was selling us – he let us buy and went out of his way to only show the properties we were in interested in. Second, knowing he must have many clients never once did we feel like we were playing second fiddle. And third, he was fun, down to Earth, and a real pleasure to work with. We import many people for high tech jobs in the Austin area and will be using him as a point of contact for anyone looking for property. Thank you for the time, Kevin.

Douglas Hanks

Kevin McCord was great in helping us find our home in Pflugerville. Kevin was always available to show us homes and kept us informed on new listings. Everything went smoothly throughout the process. Great going Kevin!

John McCracken, Facebook Review

Kevin McCord was great throughout the whole process. He is awesome at customer service and very knowledgeable in his field. I will be recommending him to anyone I know who needs a realtor.

Josh Parker

We enjoyed working with Kevin McCord and he gave us excellent customer service throughout our house hunting process. He was patient and once he knew what we wanted he would honestly help steer us toward homes fitting our needs. We will most definitely recommend Realty Austin and refer anyone directly to Kevin.

We give our sincere thanks to Kevin in helping make this transition from Lubbock to Pflugerville go as smoothly as possible.

John & Linda McCracken

Thanks Kevin McCord! You're awesome!

Travis K. Foster, Facebook Review

My wife and I found a nice, little home on the internet and we inquired about it through whatever website Google happened to bring us to (which happened to be realtyaustin.com). Not long after that, I get a call from Kevin McCord who was available to answer any questions we might have had about the property.

To skip the details that are only important me, my wife and I ended up looking at a total of 4 houses and 1 home. (yes, the fifth one was the one we fell in love with). Kevin was able to pick up on our tastes and each house he showed us was better and better. We learned so much along the way about things to look for in a home or a lender, how to plan for a seamless process and he took care of all the leg work along the way.

We've only closed a couple days ago, but Kevin has already reached out to me a few times to see how things are going, what we might need or how he can help with anything else. When most realtors would be done and gone, Kevin made sure that we were 100% satisfied and that everything was just as we had dreamed.

I don't see us buying another home, even in the distant future...but whenever we do I'll be sure to look up Kevin again.

Kelly & Shelley

Thank you, Kevin McCord, for your diligence and hard work with my home purchase. I am excited to get to Austin and maybe meet him in person. It's been a pleasure, Kevin - well done!

Mary Limber Anderson, Facebook Review

KEVIN WAS AMAZING!!! I had a very bad experience with a previous broker/agent with a different company and actually made me not want to try and buy a new home. From start to finish, Kevin was there to answer all questions and really made me feel that I was in good hands. I was ready to give up a fight with the builder regarding a promise made with the blinds going into the home but Kevin didn’t give up. He fought the battle for me and not only did he get the blinds that I wanted, he also got them at no charge which was even more awesome.

I couldn’t have asked for a better person to assist me with the purchase of my first home. When at the buyer walk through, Kevin found the smallest of imperfections with the house that I would have never noticed to ensure that my new home was going to be perfect.

Kevin is a great representative of your company and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him to anyone that I know that is going to be purchasing a home.

Jose Cavazos

Kevin McCord was a great realtor to work with. He showed us multiple houses with patience and understanding. He really went the extra mile to make sure we found the house and an area that suited us best. Can't say enough good things...

Victoria Oller Rail, Facebook Review

As a first time homebuyer the search process may be tiresome and trying; Kevin's style is both personable and professional and was exactly what I needed so that I could relax and enjoy buying my first home. A few benefits of working with Kevin and Realty Austin: The website has a nice clean design that is user friendly, he has great communication skills and customer service and a good understanding about the housing market and neighborhoods.

I wish Kevin much success in his career and I am looking forward to work with him during my next home search.

Chella Rice

It is with great pleasure that I would like to both thank and recommend Kevin McCord, Realty Austin, and RA associates, in a testimonial acknowledgement of professional services rendered to my family and myself. Kevin McCord through Realty Austin helped us efficiently navigate through the entire process of home selection, and home purchase. We are simply thrilled to be moving from New Jersey to our new home in Georgetown Texas. I highly commend Realty Austin, and especially Kevin McCord and associates, for having assisted my family in this consistently professional manner.

Chuck Aidukas & Family

Kevin McCord was very helpful in getting a fast closing and very efficient in all dealings!

David M., Google Review

Kevin McCord has exceeded our expectations as a realtor. WOW, I never knew realtors provided so many services. We bought our last home 20 years ago in a master planned community. Kevin has always accommodated our schedules, promptly returned calls and emails, and provided any request in a timely manner. I felt like Kevin gave us great advice when we asked and went out of his way to make our experience in buying a bank foreclosed property easy and pleasurable. Even though there were a few situations beyond his control, he apologized for them anyway. I will recommend him to all my friends. His staff has been very helpful and responsive, as well. Everyone was a pleasure to work with. By the way, I love your website. That's how I found Kevin to begin with. I registered with the site and was just looking around when he gave me a call and introduced himself. At the time, I was just looking, but 2 weeks later I saw something that sparked my interest, and remembered Kevin, and called him. So glad I did! I have the pleasure to continue working with Kevin for awhile, since he is selling my old house.

Anne Beville

Kevin McCord provided great service on our recent move to Austin. He encouraged us to check out Steiner Ranch based on what we said we wanted. We moved into our Steiner home Saturday and love it! Thanks for your help, Kevin!

Matthew Gaskins

Thanks Kevin for your hard work, honesty and efficiency. It's nice to have someone that is reliable and on top of things in this biz. If anyone needs a rec on a good agent, I'm sending them to you!

Julie Hudgens

Our last home was extremely difficult to sell. We were hit by uncertain lending conditions, a disorganized condo association, insurance problems, defective windows, and just about any other problem you can imagine. We had previously tried to sell the home and given up, renting it for a year before Kevin showed up.

Immediately, Kevin knew who to call and what to do. We got the place cleaned up and had an offer in short order. He then helped us through the lengthy process of getting our buyer's lender happy with our HOA documents (which needed to be rewritten) and our condo insurance policy (which needed to be replaced). At every turn, Kevin knew exactly which specialist to call to get something done quickly and inexpensively. He was determined, aggressive, and kept a cool head throughout a very challenging transaction.

Kevin is hands down the best broker I've met, which is why he's now selling our current home. I have all the confidence in the world that he'll come through again.

Damon and Michelle Cali

Kevin,

We are in our sixties and have dealt with several realtors over the years, but you have been our favorite. We appreciate your accommodating our less-than-technologically-savvy ways and your patience with the slowness of our aging brains. :) We were also pleased with your responsiveness, your responsibility, and the fact that you were always on-time whenever we agreed to meet.

Once when you were out of the room, Daisy McClester at Creekview said, “Good realtor.” At Avery Ranch, Raquel Atwell said, “He’s such a good realtor! He makes my job so much easier.”

All the best to you and your little family,

Michael and Virginia Flynn J.
