Business Philosophy

Kim’s top priority is personalized, comprehensive customer service. She places the customer’s needs first, and stays in constant communication throughout the buying, selling, and investment processes. Every step of the way, she strives to establish life-long professional relationships through integrity, rapport, and industry expertise. This practice has been the key to her quick accomplishment in the industry. Clients become friends, and friends become clients.

In addition, she serves first-time buyers with the same unwavering dedication she devotes to clients in the million-dollar range.

My spouse and I would absolutely recommend Kim Fodor for any real estate needs. We have worked with many agents, but never a more dedicated agent than Kim Fodor. Kim is positive, enthusiastic, thorough and tenacious. She quickly responds to calls or texts and promptly follows through on reaching out to agents, compiling research, setting appointments, generating necessary documents and advocating for her clients. Kim definitely made our buying experience run smoothly and we consider her a friend.

Kim Fodor was fantastic, and I will only use her in the future and will recommend her to everyone! It was the easiest, best real estate transaction I've been involved in. Kim is the best!

Kim Fodor is the greatest asset for Realty Austin. I am an out of own investor and Kim went over and above her duties as a listing agent to help me remodel and then flip my property. By that, I mean she met with the workers to do the work, she picked up items needed for the remodel, she even washed windows!! She is truly incredible...patient, attentive, knowledgeable and very, very personable. She quickly becomes a friend for life and I highly recommend her to any Buyer or Seller in the Austin area! She will go the extra mile for ALL her clients...she did for me!!!!

Kim was great especially with us being out of state buyers. She found time to dedicate to us and video tour homes until we found the right one. She was very helpful in discussing terminology and strategies pertaining to offers. She answered calls and returned voicemails. She did a wonderful job and we are very pleased. If any honor, promotion, or recognition can come from this review she deserves it.

I couldn't have been happier working with Kim Fodor. Her expertise at every step of the home buying process was invaluable. She is smart, professional and a fierce advocate for her clients. She was responsive at all hours and completely dedicated to making sure all of our needs were met. We found a great house in our desired neighborhood for the right price, and we absolutely couldn't have done it without her. Not to mention she's a joy to be around and was always so sweet and patient with our rambunctious kids. I would recommend her to friends and family in a heartbeat.

I feel incredibly fortunate to have worked with Kim. She worked around our schedule, was always on time, and provided helpful feedback whenever we needed an experienced opinion on the houses we were viewing. I always felt like she was in our corner and, in the end, helped us get a house in budget, in the right school district, and in the time frame we were looking to buy. Kim made us feel like we were always her top priority. I would jump at recommending Kim to friends, family, and anyone else.

We've worked with Kim Fodor several times (both buying and selling). She is very knowledgeable about the Austin area and has a large network. She has guided us through every transaction and is very conscientious and diligent - always providing updates and answering questions at any time of day. What makes Kim stand out from others is her personable, yet genuine nature. This is what makes working with her so special, and why we continue to do so. Thanks, Kim!

Kim went above and beyond to service me… She was exceptional. She is the most polite, respectful, and professional realtor I have had the pleasure of working with. Definitely 5 stars.

Kim Fodor is an excellent real estate agent and my husband and I highly recommend her. We have bought and sold many homes and found Kim to be efficient, thorough, enthusiastic and a fierce client's advocate. She always has a positive attitude and is willing to show as many homes as it takes to find the right home for you. Kim doesn't quit when the contract is signed, she is more than willing to obtain comps, provide research and share her expertise. She IS the best and you won't be disappointed if you take the opportunity to work with her.

I had the pleasure of working with Kim Fodor. She was very professional, kind and very thorough. She came to me as a referral from my nephew and his wife. She worked with them and helped them through the process of buying and closing on their first home and subletting their apartment. They had nothing but good things to say about her.

I had called another Realtor that I had worked with in the past and was not very pleased with the lack of information I received from this person, so when my nephew recommended Kim, I jumped at the chance to contact her. She responded to my call promptly and we set up an appointment to meet. From the moment I met her I felt comfortable. It was obvious that she was very experienced and I knew that I had selected the right person to assist me in selling my home. At our second meeting, she came prepared with all the comps for my neighborhood and made me feel very positive about the process of selling my home. Kim was always available to me whenever I had any questions. She was also very informative on how to stage my home and jumped right in to assist me with whatever needed to be done to complete the staging. She was there for me every step of the way. She is a great negotiator and was able to negotiate the best sale price for my house. She is simply amazing to work with and feel like I have a new friend in her. I will definitely be calling on her if I decide to buy a home in the future. I have already recommended her to my family and friends. Kim is simply the best at what she does. Kim, thank you for making this process painless as possible. Again, you are the best!

Kim has been an absolute delight to work with through the entire process. Her knowledge of the community and the attention to our "must haves", definitely sets her apart from typical real estate agents. I will definitely solicit her services for any future property transaction(s) and highly recommend her to anyone seeking the same. Professional, courteous, knowledgeable, A++ performer.

Both my husband and I are retired Air Force and never really settled down. Kim helped sell our 1st home and found us our 2nd and final home. She was SOOO patient with us, because we had specific needs that we did not want to settle for less. At times, I felt so frustrated at not finding the right place, but Kim always would say “it is out there and we will find it”!

With the housing market the way it is, there were so very few homes to choose from in the area we wanted. Kim was persistent and found our home. My husband FINALLY has his workshop and I have room for entertaining and expand my personal chefing business.

I HIGHLY recommend Kim Fodor to be the Real Estate Agents of CHOICE through Realty Austin!!

Kim Fodor is an agent with some real common sense and zeal. She has a great attitude, while also being very nice and friendly. She has a great amount of experience and education, but more than that she is just real. I like how well Kim knows her local and surrounding communities. She is very on the ball too, getting back to you very fast with updates and always answering her phone. Buying and selling can be difficult, and with a teammate like her on your side it is so much more seamless. I am excited to finally have the whole process behind me, and a new friend. Thanks Kim Fodor.

I recently worked with Kim Fodor from realty austin and she helped me buy my dream home. She was always available to answer any questions I had and went above and beyond to ensure the deal was done and the whole process went smoothly. I highly recommend working with her. Thanks Kim!

I absolutely adore Kim. Not easy working out of state, and my preference is delegating to folks that have my best interests at heart.

I'm not easy to impress. I'm not passive, but I want to be informed on things I don't know, and may not anticipate. I hate babysitting professionals, and fired two realtors before finding her. I understood what was going on, got involved when needed - and otherwise - trusted them to get things done firmly and fairly.

Use her, trust her…you won't be sorry.

Bought a one-bedroom condo in Northwest Austin with help from Kim Fodor. I am no fan of real estate agents, but I have to admit, Kim really went out of her way to find a place in a specific complex that I wanted. (It wasn't even listed, but it was in the complex I had told her I liked.) She's a hard worker and has an aggressive acquisition style which is a must in the current market. [What I mean by this is that she found me a place that wasn't even technically for sale yet and did all kinds of extra work to make sure I got what I wanted.] I'd recommend her without hesitation. Five Stars! Thanks again!

I've had the opportunity to work with Kim Fodor, twice.

After the amazing experience I had buying my first home with her, I knew who I could turn to when I was in the market for a second. We exchanged dozens of emails and visited multiple properties for a year before I finally pulled the trigger. As always, Kim was extremely responsive, patient and helpful throughout the process.

I can't say enough about Kim's positive energy and demeanor. But most important, she has the knowledge and experience to navigate Austin's fast-moving real estate maker.

I was referred to Kim Foder by a very good friend and it was a good decision she did a great job for me she understood what I was looking for right a way and found it much quicker then I thought it would take. I would recommend Kim to my friends. Thanks Kim, she is funny too.

Kim is a highly motivated individual with a heart of gold. Working with Kim is delightful and above all, I value her integrity and sense of urgency. We had an all cash deal within 24 hours and, nine days later, I was handed the keys to my investment property. The entire experience was seamless and pleasant. I enjoy working with leading Austin professionals and Kim is among the best I know. It would be an understatement to say that Kim exceeded expectations — she went way beyond the norm.

Kim Fodor is a class act and an amazing broker. We had to work under some extremely tight deadlines and we passed all the hurdles with ease. She goes above and beyond from a service level standpoint and is always thinking of creative ways to leverage the current situation to your advantage.

Luther Sullivan, Google+ Review

I can't say enough good things about Kim Fodor. She showed us many homes, prepared offers, investigated questions we had, and went the extra mile over and over. She is very professional and proactive and provided many helpful ideas as we tried to figure out where to live, which neighborhoods, which houses and so on. If we buy or sell again we will be giving Kim a call.

Kim is by far the best at what she does. She topped any other Agent we have ever had any experience with. She stuck with us over the 8 months of us looking yes 8 for just the right place. She went with us all over the Austin Surrounding area. She helped us nail down what we were looking for. She was there to jump and run with us to anything that looked good to the wife and there were a bunch over the months. She never flinched at the thought of helping us. She had the focus of making it as much her home as ours. She was there with every tool you could think of to get our questions answered and even those we had not thought of. We feel she is more family then Agent. She provides quick helpful responses and she remained in our court through the whole process. She is in it 110% for you and with you. Your expectations are high when you are looking for a home and Kim always exceeded them. She was there to do battle in the war of real-estate over these months I have seen her go way beyond for all her clients. Just as she did with us making calls, arranging inspections, getting estimates, finding resources for your needs and working with the seller to get us what you would hope to gain from concerns you have with your purchase. She was there at all hours, nights and weekends supporting us. I have seen her over these months do the same for those properties she is representing. She will be the one to sell my home when I am ready. We can not say enough, she is a Gem and just one meeting with her you will see for yourself.

Let me be clear----buying a home is a very emotional time for a person trying to find their forever home. I had talked with several agents, before I found Kim. She has been our rock, never waiving from our objectives. Kim's generosity, kindness, and patience are true virtues that has made her success ours too. My husband and I very happy with our new home and hope Kim will continue to be an important part of our family.

There are very few words that I can describe the happiness that I felt buying my first home here in Austin. I had many questions and I'm blessed to have Kim Fodor as my Realtor. She expressed patience and professionalism from the inception to the final closing date. She answered all my questions thoroughly, promptly and guided me through the whole purchasing process from showing me homes and explaining the paperwork.

Kim is a genuine down to earth person with savvy negotiating skills. She had the seller decrease the sale price to account for some repairs that needed to be fixed. Although my home probably wasn't her largest transaction, it sure felt that I was always at the top of her list. She has the pure vocation of helping people find a wonderful home and has her clients best interest in mind. I can't say enough good things about her, all I can say is if you need to buy or sell a house call Kim Fodor!

As a first-time homebuyer, I had plenty of questions. Fortunately, I also had Kim Fodor on my team.

Kim is responsive, knowledgeable and extremely honest. She answered all my questions, gave great advice and made the entire process painless.

I've already recommended her to friends and hope to work with them again soon.

I can't say enough good about my experience working with Kim. What I was anticipating being a long and tedious process, became a fun and exciting experience. Working with Kim, I always felt I was in good hands. Not only is she professional, experienced, and highly informed, but she has an energy and passion for her work that separates her from the rest. A total pleasure! She knows her stuff and makes sure she knows you. Extremely accommodating and goes the extra mile, all with a genuine smile. I definitely recommend Kim Fodor for all your personal Real Estate needs.

Working with Kim was a fantastic experience from start to finish. Total professionalism and knowledge, paired with a vibrant enthusiasm that sets her far apart from anyone else I've worked with.

This combination made every moment that could otherwise have been exhausting, a total pleasure. Her energy is contagious and made the process quite enjoyable.

Going forward I plan on working with Kim for all my real estate needs and highly recommend her to anyone else looking to work with a Real Estate Professional.

Kim understood exactly what we were looking for. She also took the time to go look at options ahead of time in order to discard options she knew we would not be interested in. She is also very professional but most importantly, very nice.

User32378152, Zillow Review

My husband Ron and I began our downtown condo search over one year ago and came in contact with Kim. From the initial meeting she was knowledgeable, warm, accessible, responsive, and took all the time we needed to show us properties. Kim's expertise, patience, and dedication to us as clients guided us to a wonderful new home in downtown Austin. We cannot say enough positive things about Kim and we highly recommend her to any new clients.
