This was the second property that Kristen Jacobs helped us with in the past two years, which underscores how much we trust and value her as our Realtor. She is incredibly diligent, timely, and thorough (all characteristics we appreciate during the tedious process of selling and buying). We have recommended her to our own networks, given our incredible experience with her.

Kristen Jacobs was an absolute pleasure to work with throughout the process. Her guidance and advice were provided thoughtfully and proactively and helped us make the right decisions along the way. She’s very knowledgeable and includes her resources and extended team to provide the best information and perspective. She acted as our seller’s agent and again as a buyer’s agent. On the selling side, she did a great job marketing, and we had a very active showing, resulting in multiple over asking price offers and, in turn, a final selling price well over list. On the buying side, she proved her worth again, helping us deal with a very competitive market in Westlake and dealing with a less than adequate selling agent with constantly changing dates and information. Her persistence and attention to detail during the process was appreciated and well managed. There are two agents involved in every deal, and you want Kristen to be on your side!

Kristen Jacobs has all the qualities of an excellent professional. She is unfailingly upbeat, scrupulously honest, and a tireless worker. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her services to anyone. Ms. Jacobs reflects great credit not only to herself but to Realty Austin.

Kristen Jacobs, what can I say about her? A plethora of words come to mind. Informative, generous, kind, smart, fast, genuine, clear, and gracious are my top ones! Kristen made my husband, John, and I feel comfortable during the entire process of buying our home. We knew we could always ask any question, and she would get back to us as quickly as reasonably possible. Kristen always made comments with us in mind first, and never did we feel pressured at any point to buying a home "just because it was available." She is a professional Realtor in my eyes, and I would not hesitate to call upon her again.

We used Kristen to find us a house under very challenging circumstances. We wanted to move into a specific neighborhood that did not have many houses available for sale. Kristen went above and beyond to find a house for us that met all of our desires, basically our dream house. Kristen canvassed the neighborhood, wrote letters to homeowners, and spent hours and hours trying to get the perfect house for us. I would highly recommend her for her work ethic, knowledge of the market, and her ability to make it happen.

Kristen Jacobs assisted us in the purchase of our home in the Austin area.  She is knowledgeable, very thorough in all phases of the process, and was always available.

David and I were extremely pleased with Kristen Jacob's hard work and dedication to the job and her clients. She is efficient and knowledgeable and quickly follows through with all issues. Also, she is patient and cheerful, regardless of the circumstances. We will certainly recommend Kristen if we have the opportunity.

Kristen was recommended to us by a friend who worked with her on the sale of a home in southwest Austin. When it came time to sell our home, Kristen was at the top of our list of Realtors to work with. From our first meeting to look at our home before putting it on the market to our final meeting at closing to sign papers, Kristen was there throughout the journey. Her expertise on the area helped with pricing, and her suggestion to stage the home helped show off the house's highlights to potential buyers. Kristen is professional, very responsive, friendly, and guided us through each step of the selling process. We are grateful for her and could not be happier with the final sale price and experience of selling our home.

I've had the privilege of working with Kristen Jacobs. You can't ask for a more genuine person to place your trust in. Knowledgeable, responsive, and good-hearted, Kristen was so much more than just a fantastic Realtor. Thanks for everything Kristen.

Kristen Jacobs was extremely helpful and attentive throughout our home buying experience. She went above and beyond to assist and accommodate us. We were very pleased with her level of expertise and excellent communication. We’d absolutely recommend Kristen to others!

We are really grateful with Kristen for all of her great work selling our house. I believe that beyond being knowledgeable and professional she also went beyond her way to support and help us along the process. I would highly recommend Kristen.

Fernando Laureano

We reached out to Kristen hoping to find a home in a specific Austin neighborhood. Not only did Kristen work to find upcoming listings for us to have a head start in our community of choice, but when we found ourselves making an offer, she was a staunch advocate for us during negotiations and provided balanced advice. Most importantly, she was incredibly accessible, quick to act and hardworking. We would recommend her to anyone and will certainly use her in the future - as we subsequently did on another property we own that went into a quick lease agreement!

Jenny Goerdel

We know we made the right decision for who to use as our real estate agent! Kristen was AMAZING through our entire home selling experience. From pricing our home to making suggestions for staging to selling our home quickly and for top dollar! We ended up with multiple offers and Kristen did a fantastic job negotiating for us. I honestly felt like we were her only client the entire time we worked with her. Kristen could rattle off all the details about our house and our competition without missing a beat. We look forward to working with her again to purchase our next home!

A. Kennedy

Kristen was fantastic. She was helpful, informative, and patient with us every step of the way. She went out of her way to help us with odds and ends after we moved. We were very pleased and would highly recommend Kristen.

Brian Kant

We were very pleased with the service provided by Kristen. She definitely went above and beyond to make the sale. Since we are out of town, we could not have done it without all Kristen has done.

Thomas and Mary Cherian

We sold our home in Lantana and also purchased our new home in Dripping Springs through Kristen. She is very professional, works hard, is always punctual and entirely understands the Lantana neighborhood. She was also very helpful on the buy side, which was new construction (spec home). I would not hesitate to refer Kristen or work with her again sometime in the future.

Rich Pusateri

Kristen was great especially for me, a first time home buyer. She answered every question I had and caught a number of things on paperwork that I wouldn't have. I also didn't feel pressured by Kristen to make a decision just for the purpose of making one, despite seeing a large number of homes. I don't have any negative feedback or constructive criticism.

Blake Applegate

Kristen helped us sell our house recently. She was very punctual, dependable, responsive, easy to work with, and she showcased a strong understanding of the home selling process. Her intimacy with the neighborhood and upcoming development projects nearby also gave her an edge when talking to potential buyers during the pre-market open house. Kristen also offered a full package of contacts to help make our home ready; a stager, photographer, and other home services. We got multiple offers while the house was in a coming soon status, which resulted in a higher than asking price sale before it was officially on the market.

Samir and Vaidehee Gokhale

I really enjoyed working with Kristen. I think she helped me truly decide what was important in a home to me. As a first time home buyer, Kristen was patient with me and helped me learn about the process along the way.

Sandra Salazar

I've worked with Kristen now, several times. I believe this was our 3rd transaction together and she is AWESOME! I've referred her to friends, as well. We are going to start looking to purchase some land in the next 6-12 months and plan to have Kristen represent us. We love working with her and feel like she genuinely is interested in what our needs are, finding the best solution and what is in our best interest. We really enjoy working with her and we would recommend her to anyone we know that's looking to buy, sell or rent.

Michelle Norris

We had a great experience and were very fortunate to be referred to Kristen. Her communication was amazing! She was always available and was very knowledgeable. We will definitely refer Kristen and use her in the future if needed!

Jay Mills

We had the best experience! I can't say enough great things about Kristen. She is extremely thorough and detail oriented. She made the process so easy and pleasant. We plan to use her for any future real estate transactions as well as recommend her to friends and family. She is the best!

Natalie Germanio

We were a first time home buyer with very little knowledge on how the housing market works. Fortunately, we met Kristen in the first open house we went to and luckily she recognized us as her co-parent in our sons' soccer league. From the beginning, she was pleasant to work with. We didn't feel any pressure from her even when we were not decided yet. She offered information with no expectations. The first thing that we liked is that Kristen took the time to understand our situation, what we wanted and what we were looking for in a house. After we have decided to go with her as our agent, it went smoothly. As first timers, we didn't have a hard time as she was able to guide us every step of the way. Kristen quickly responded to all our questions and provided timely information. She had good referrals for all services needed, e.g., Lender, inspector, etc. She was transparent and quickly gained our trust. Within a couple of months from the time we met Kristen at the open house, we were able to close on our dream house. We were so grateful for how things turned out to be. We love our new home so much and so do our family and friends. We would work with her again and would not hesitate to recommend Kristen to our friends who would most likely be first-time buyers too!

Christine Mendoza

My husband and I had the incredibly good fortune of meeting Kristen Jacobs while we were checking out houses in Austin. I am confident that it's because of Kristen's experience, wonderful personality, superb negotiation skills, expertise and the excellent rapport she has with other agents (and people in general) that our offer was accepted the same day we made it on a multiple offer situation.

We had set up an appointment with another Realtor in the area who came highly recommended, and to use our time before the scheduled meeting, and we walked into an open house Kristen happened to be showing. On previous trips to Austin, before we knew we were moving there for sure, we had spent two full days with two different Realtors while we were looking in a different area of Austin. We followed up with our meeting with the other Realtor we planned on working with, and right away I felt so lucky that we met Kristen! In my opinion, every other agent paled in comparison, and we would have been none the wiser had we not met Kristen!

We instantly clicked with Kristen! Not only is she extremely knowledgeable about every aspect of each area we were interested in, but she gave us so much useful information about everything we could want to know about each house and each region and each school district. Kristen is always the most wonderful, personable, and honest person whose info is far more useful, relevant and well-informed than we had received on previous trips. She is brilliant with people (all kinds of people from all walks of life). Kristen is extremely patient, intelligent, honest, kind, and beyond helpful. Minutes after meeting her, she already had an excellent sense of what we were looking for and sent us a list of houses that fit our needs. Every question, big and small, Kristen answered thoroughly, and right away too.

The enormous amount of time she dedicated to us and all the extra effort she gives, WAY above and beyond the call of duty makes you feel like you are her only clients in the world, and everything feels smooth as possible! I never once felt like she was pushing the sale of a house on us and it was apparent she cares enormously about finding the right home for you, no matter how long that takes. We are first time home buyers, and Kristen made the process easy, clear and understandable, guiding us through the process and making it so smooth and manageable, always giving the sagest advice most gently and warmly. I never felt rushed, pressured, or that she wanted us to buy the house at the highest end of our budget. Kristen truly wants you to have the home you love, the one that you are meant to be in and makes the entire process fun and remarkably enjoyable. My kids loved her too!

We returned to California, and Kristen handled it all from Austin for us. She met with the inspector, with my husband when he flew down there again and walked through the entire contract with him, going over all the details. Kristen did a walk-through of the house again for us, measuring rooms and spaces, taking extra photos for us, and showed it to my parents when they went down for a weekend. Kristen truly is a gem (as a human being and as a Realtor), I am very grateful to have purchased our very first home with her help, and even more grateful to have her as a new friend in my new town! We plan on buying an apartment too, and will without a single doubt have Kristen as our Realtor again, and of course, recommend her to anyone looking for an outstanding experience finding the perfect home!

Melissa Solomon

My wife and I searched for over a year for our perfect home. Then we met Kristen. Within a month we found our dream home, made a competitive offer and were well on our way to becoming the new owners. Her knowledge, skill, and patience helped us through the brambles of buying a home. We couldn't have done it without her. We not only found our perfect home (which we've been in for four months now), but we also made a great friend along the way. Thanks, Kristen!

The Cramtons

When we decided to sell our house in Austin, TX, we chose Kristen Jacobs to be our agent. We could not have made a better choice. From the beginning, we were confident in her strategy and her guidance. She brought in a stager to help us highlight the values of our property. Kristen was always available to answer questions and assist where necessary. We were reassured by Kristen’s ability to anticipate our needs and to focus on the important items. She negotiated the selling price of our home as the highest per square foot price ever sold in our neighborhood. We absolutely recommend Kristen Jacobs for your buying and selling needs!

Leann Hollenbeak

We originally found Kristen when we were looking for a rental property when we first moved to Austin. We had worked with a few real estate agents before meeting her, but we immediately felt comfortable with Kristen and trusted her. It was also immediately evident that Kristen was intelligent, reliable and well versed in the real estate process. Her knowledge was priceless.

One of the first things Kristen did for us was provide us with some information for families moving to Austin. She listened to our requirements for a rental property and never tried to push an agenda. We looked at several houses but in the end found a home which she recommended in an area we hadn't considered initially, mostly because of our limited knowledge of Austin. Kristen understood what our family needed. She even provided us with references to a child care center, which my girls now attend. Kristen also helped us with purchasing our new house this year. We wouldn't have considered anyone else!

It took us ages to find the neighborhood we wanted to purchase a house in. Kristen was incredibly patient! Also, our two little girls were very uninterested in looking at houses all weekend and were understandably cranky. Kristen's patience with our two daughters during these viewings was saintly (this made me a little bit less stressed about the whole process, and I really appreciated this). Buying a house is such a stressful process, and it would have been terrible had we not been able to relax a bit with our daughters there.

Most importantly, Kristen saved us money! Kristen was so knowledgeable about the real estate process and what to consider when looking at a house. There were a few houses that I walked into that I fell in love with. I often saw the perspective of the house without considering the cost to update it. These houses required updates that were too time consuming or simply not right for our family (very well decorated but too small). Kristen never went against what we wanted. In fact, she initially put a bid on one of these houses. Nevertheless, Kristen gave us incredibly accurate and useful information about the house. In the end, this let us make the right decision to pull out of negotiations at the right time.

So, we decided on a house in a great neighborhood with great schools. This house is right for our family. Kristen's help hasn't stopped here. She has provided us with references for home improvements that have saved us money and the time of researching on our own as well. Both my husband and I are working, so this was really valuable information. We are excited to move into our new property.

I would not hesitate to recommend Kristen as a real estate agent. Kristen was professional, reliable and kind. She outshined all of the other real estate agents we came in contact with. We consider Kristen, a friend who has helped our family immensely. We are incredibly grateful for her help and hope to work with her further in the future. Thank you again, Kristen.

Jennifer, Malcolm, Juliette and Annabelle

Kristen jumped right in to help me find a house when I had to suddenly move out of my current home due to unforeseen circumstances. She was 110% on top of all the details, super responsive on email and text and most of all I felt she really understood and genuinely cared about my needs. Kristen even took the time to get to know me and my business. I’m very impressed with Kristen and highly recommend her to help you find your next home.

Jennifer Ostrich

Our experience with Kristen Jacobs as our listing agent was outstanding! She is an effective, professional, friendly, knowledgeable and most importantly, helped us set a price record in our neighborhood in two days on the market! The offer closed in a swift manner allowing us to purchase our new home out of state. When my husband found a job opportunity back east, I was stressed out about selling our house, relocating and the general upheaval to our lives. Kristen went above and beyond by not only selling our home at a great price, but she also helped us take care of the details that come up during closure and moving. She put a lot of effort into marketing by hiring an excellent photographer who made our home look stunning! The online listing looked great, and I loved how the “Twist Tour” gave us statistics about views. We really couldn’t have asked for anything more, and Kristen really treated us like family.

Lauren Hollerbach

Above and Beyond! That is what you will get with Austin Realtor, Kristen Jacobs! She is so attentive, knowledgeable and helpful. My transaction was a little more complicated in the sense that I was selling in CA and buying in Texas simultaneously! Kristen even connected me with one of the best loan officers I have ever worked with. This was going to be a HUGE move for me, and she understood that. I was grateful all went so smoothly. Before the listing of my home in CA, I came out 2-3 times to look at houses, and I mean look! Kristen drove me everywhere I wanted to go, set up viewings and mapped things out accordingly. She would not stop until she knew that I found the perfect house. We must have looked at 30-40 different homes total. When it came down to a home in Round Rock, we decided that that was the best fit for the best location for me. I was thrilled. From there I had to fly home and NOT see my house again for almost two months! I had to sell and close on my end and meet the timing of the escrow on the Texas end. (Not to mention this whole thing was over the Thanksgiving-Christmas holiday). It was a little crazy but all along Kristen stayed helpful, positive and encouraging on so many levels. Kristen took care of things that I should have done if I were local, but because I was still in CA the time of my closing in Texas she made sure that all fell into place for me. I could not have asked for a better Realtor! I plan on referring all my friends and family to her should they want to purchase a home in the Austin Texas area. I got lucky finding her, and I appreciated all she did and was willing to do for me. In life, you don’t find someone that cares about your situation too often, purchasing a home is, and Kristen respected me and my situation from start to finish! Because of the above, we likely will have a lifelong friendship! 100% satisfaction here!

Linda Johnson

Kristen is a fantastic Realtor and will reset your expectations. I have purchased several homes in the past, and Kristen was the best (by far) that I have ever had a chance to work with. She is a warm and friendly person that truly works hard and looks out for her buyers and their interest. Historically when I worked with Realtors in the past, I did a lot of the work and often felt the sale was more important to them instead of them genuinely wanted to protect my interest. Kristen from our initial meeting worked to understand my needs, overall taste and what was import to my family. From that initial meeting until days after the closing she stood by my side to ensure that I was a happy homeowner. Kristen would often point out flaws or share concerns before I saw them or shared them. This gave me a confidence that I had not experienced with Realtors before. I knew that she was more interested in protecting my time and ensuring I was happy then just making a sale. Do you want a Realtor that will invest her time to know your taste and needs, protect your time, work hard for you and ensure that you are informed and making a sound financial decision? Call Kristen she will reset your expectations for Realtors and make sure you find the perfect home.

Juste Turner

As always, Kristen has been amazing! We are grateful for all she does to work so hard for us, and we will ALWAYS refer her and work with her. Can’t really say there is anything she can do to improve! Five stars! She’s a gem and knows her stuff!

Tracey Lackovich

I truly enjoyed working with Kristen Jacobs. She was on top of everything and always had my best interests at heart. She was professional at all times, never pressured or pushed, and was ALWAYS there when I needed her. I not only got an awesome Realtor, but I gained a friend.

Tiffany Tirres

Kristen was by far and away the best Realtor I could've ever imagined. From start to finish, she anticipated every single need we didn't even know we had and handled it like a boss. Through no fault of Kristen's, the process got kind of stressful for a small stretch towards the end with a delayed closing and plans ruined for all parties. But just the way she responded to it, kept us in the loop, handled things that needed to get done, stayed on top of the people who were slacking on the side of the lenders, I can't possibly imagine anyone having done a better job. We feel so fortunate that we got her. Whatever she gets paid on this is not enough.

We could not have gotten through this without Kristen. I've never in my life met someone who is better at their job than she is at hers. With maybe the exception of my father and my wife. And I can speak for my wife, Kat, as well. She has been just as impressed as I. I will never consult the housing market again without reaching out to Kristen. She's the first on the list of invitees to our housewarming party. Kristen is welcome to any party we ever throw, and I'd be proud to add her to our list of friends. She will be the first name I mention to anyone who is ever in the real estate market.

Matt Steele

There are no words to describe how wonderful Kristen was to work with. So professional, so detail oriented, so helpful and most of all, so very patient. She gave 110% effort on this transaction. She is a great asset to your company. Loved working with Kristen!

Donna Darling

We have worked with Kristen Jacobs and have found her to be very professional, very courteous, and knowledgeable. I would recommend Kristen for any real estate dealing you may have.

J-P Zacaropoulos

As first-time homebuyers, we were very timid about entering the Austin housing market. We weren't even sure we could realistically buy a house, but Kristen was patient with us until we were ready. She remained accessible to us but was never pushy about choosing her services. Once we started viewing houses and making offers, we leaned heavily on her wise advice. Kristen knows her stuff and picks up on details about a home that we would never have noticed.

As soon as we came upon the house that we now own, Kristen worked tirelessly for us in a competitive multiple offer situation. We do not doubt that our offer was chosen because of her guidance in drafting up a contract that was fair and attractive to the sellers. Communication with Kristen is so easy and relaxed. We never felt uncomfortable calling her with any questions or concerns. She always made time for us, especially after business hours, despite having her busy schedule. Kristen has this fantastic ability to make you feel at ease as soon as you meet her. She treats her clients with the utmost respect but also a warmth that has allowed us to count Kristen as one of our good friends now (instead of just our Realtor). Kristen is a phenomenal asset to have on your team. We cannot say enough kind words to describe how much she has done for us!

Dee and T.K. Archibald

Kristen represented my husband, Ben, and I as both buyers and sellers in the Austin market. When we initially expressed interest in relocating to a different part of Austin, Kristen thoroughly gathered information about our wants and needs. We knew that in the current housing market that buying a new home could be challenging as inventory turns over very fast. We found the "perfect" home and Kristen worked diligently to help us make the right offer. Once our offer was accepted, she was in constant communication with us to ensure a smooth close. When it came time to sell our previous home, we knew we wanted Kristen to represent us again! She did not disappoint, hiring a professional photographer to take the pictures we used on the MLS website. Our home had multiple offers within 48 hours, and we believe that was, in part, due to Kristen's professionalism and hard work. We would highly recommend her if you are looking for a great, knowledgeable Realtor!

Jessi Murdter-Atkinson

Kristen is a wonderful Realtor. She recently helped Will Becker, and I find our first house. I knew months out that I wanted Kristen to be our Realtor. She started months in advance and gave us the great advice to get a feel for areas, but don't fall in love with anything because the Austin market turns over so fast. Kristen was helpful in walking us through figuring out what our "must haves" were and found lots of properties that matched those. I know that may sound silly, but it was our first time looking for a house, and she brought up things that we wouldn't have considered right away. Kristen was knowledgeable about all of the areas in south Austin we were hunting in. We even got to see the house that we wanted before it was listed. When it was time put in an application, she was always available to answer all of my ridiculous questions about the paperwork. When we look to buy a house in a few years, I'm going back to Kristen!

Ryan Rutherford

My husband and I had the pleasure of working with Kristen this year as we "made the move" from New York City to Austin. Our first task was to find a home and a neighborhood that we liked. Being new to Austin we had much to learn and explore, and Kristen was incredibly patient with us and took the time to show us many different options around Austin. Another thing I really appreciated about Kristen was her promptness. Whenever she told me that she would call me or email me, Kristen always did and she also always showed up on time (or early) for our appointments. Kristen also always answered any questions that we had, even if that meant that she had to take time to do some research and get back to us. My husband and I found Kristen to be prompt, professional, intelligent, and thoughtful. In the end, we purchased a beautiful new home that we absolutely adore for a price that we were pleased with. The process was exciting and enjoyable, and we gave Kristen a lot of the credit for that. If we ever need to purchase another home in Austin, we won't hesitate to use Kristen.

Ms. Garcia

Kristen has so many traits that make her an EXCEPTIONAL Realtor and pleasant person to work with, and my husband and I couldn’t be happier with our choice to hire her to list our Hyde Park home. This was our first experience selling a house, and Kristen sat down with us to thoroughly go through the process with us. She was incredibly well organized, prepared, and knowledgeable about the market conditions, helping us to set a competitive price for our home. Before the home was even listed on the market, Kristen made thoughtful suggestions about how to prepare the house so that it showed best to prospective buyers. She also went as far as to dedicate her time and energy to help us power wash the walkway! Kristen went above and beyond what I ever would have expected in a Realtor and found her to be patient, attentive, and professional throughout the whole process. She was incredibly reliable and had exceptional communication with us throughout the process.

Through Kristen’s strong marketing program, Realtor networking, and hard work, we had multiple offers on our home the first weekend it came on the market. Once under contract, Kristen continued to stay in regular communication with us and successfully negotiated on our behalf. Kristen truly exceeded our expectations and had an incredible work ethic. If you want to work a down to earth real estate professional who will get the job done and communicate with you honestly throughout the process, then Kristen is the agent for you.

Mark and Liz Abrahams

Kristen was a godsend for us when we came up with the decision to move from NY to Austin, TX. Initially, we were referred to a different real estate agent local to the area in which we were interested to buy a house. A couple of days later I received a follow-up call from Kristen, I reconsidered my agent choice because by that time lack of sufficient communication on the first agent's part, and failure to listen to our requests and change the search criteria accordingly did not make me happy or eager to work with that agent. In our phone conversation, Kristen sounded very friendly, knowledgeable and down to earth. Within half an hour after we hang up, I started receiving automatic real estate listing updates set up by Kristen according to all my requirements (area, square footage, school district and more). Also, Kristen sent me another email that contained her thoughts on the best options for our business that I had mentioned to her we are planning to open once we move.

Before and during my visit to Austin Kristen was extremely attentive to my needs, had our best interest in mind the whole time, and was right on top of every single question/ issue/follow-up we had to have that concerned the properties she was about to show me. Guess what? By the end of the VERY FIRST DAY of our search, after Kristen showed me approximately ten different houses within 4 or 5 hours window, we had a winner. I liked one of the houses that, by the time we came to see, had multiple offers on. Kristen kept communicating with the listing agent back and forth to make sure we will have enough time to prepare and submit our offer before everything will be presented to the owners. She advised and instructed me on the best offer tactics that are Austin market-specific, and with Kristen's help the offer was written up and submitted in under an hour. At 10 pm that night I received a phone call from her with congratulations on my purchasing that house!!! With five offers on the house, ours came up a winner. What can I say?

Every time I met up with Kristen to discuss additional details of the deal, sign the documents and such, her attentiveness to details, her professionalism and willingness to help was well beyond the required. Kristen provided me with a full list of utility companies and their phone numbers, helped me find inspectors to do an inspection of the house in 2 days (absolutely impossible thing in the booming Austin market), and picked up some tourist guides and local attraction booklets for me so I could make the most out of my first visit to Austin.

To conclude everything said above, KRISTEN IS AMAZING IN EVERY WAY. If you are looking to relocate to Austin area, do yourself a favor and get in touch with Kristen for all your real estate needs. It could only be the best decision you will make, just as right as making an offer on your dream house or finding an apartment you fall in love with at first sight.

What's My Home Worth?

No computer algorithm can accurately determine the price a home will sell for. By providing an address below, I will instantly show you what similar homes are selling for in your area and give you three automated price ranges for the address entered.

This represents an estimated sale price for this property. It is not the same as the opinion of value in an appraisal developed by a licensed appraiser under the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice.
