Kristin Kreisel

Kristin Kreisel



Kristin was born and raised in the midwest but has called Austin home since October 31, 2004. Because of this milestone move on Halloween, the Austin bats have extra special meaning to her.

She's had a diverse professional background which includes retail, marketing, advertising, project management, and business operations. This background and training really helped jump-start her very successful real estate career! In the first year she was licensed she completed 20 transactions and achieved over $5M in sales. Kristin loves her clients and is the definition of dedicated - she even won out a multiple offer situation from the hospital after the birth of her second child!

But it might be her unique personal experience in buying, remodeling, and selling homes that truly add value for her clients. She's been through multiple renovations and projects to include her current home off South Congress which was featured on HGTV's "Property Brothers." She never underestimates the personal journey it takes for one to purchase and sell a home. She's passionate about helping people and making the process fun.

Kristin spends her free time with her partner and two children enjoying everything Austin has to offer. She loves cooking, gardening, yoga, live music and the arts. Since 2005, Kristin has been giving back to the community by volunteering with Art From the Streets, a local non-profit that provides Austin's homeless community free art classes.

Kristin wasn't a referral or random; I previously worked with her in advertising and have known her for several years. I knew Kristin would bring to this little adventure the same focus and positive spirit she had as my colleague at the agency where we worked. Her positive outlook is what I was needing. And she exceeded even that. She also became my sea of calm as roadblocks appeared and patiently counseled me through the whole experience. She was incredibly knowledgeable and also quite strategic. I relied heavily on her judgment, and she stayed completely focused on what I was looking for. I have the house I wanted because of her focus, patience, and understanding. My only sadness is that the adventure that got us to this note is ended.

Kristen continues to do an outstanding job for us. While other properties didn't sell until 2 or 3 months on the market, Kristen jumped in and got our two properties sold within six weeks from the listing date. She does a fantastic marketing job and is on top of the Austin market. We are truly very fortunate to know Kristin and have her on our side! She is the best!

Kristin is the best! Top notch! She was extremely diligent, focused, positive, and extraordinarily patient throughout the process. She always made herself available and motivated me to keep pushing. After nearly a year of searching, we finally found the right house at the right price. The market in Austin is a frustrating environment for buyers, but Kristin makes it easy and was beyond helpful all the way to the closing table and beyond. She certainly exceeded my expectations, and I would definitely recommend her to anyone in need of a buyer's agent!

I first worked with Kristin a few years ago, and she helped me find a commercial space for rent on the east side of Austin. I knew after that experience that she was awesome! She's so personable and professional but isn't afraid to be respectfully straightforward in business. I knew I wanted to work with her years later when I decided to sell my home after getting a tremendous job opportunity in Minnesota. While in some ways I know I am pretty low maintenance, I also know that (as a career marketer) I would be paying close attention to certain aspects of selling a home. Kristin was so patient and understanding. I'm sure I asked a lot of silly questions, and I know I got emotional as it took longer to sell than I had anticipated, but Kristin counseled me through each step. I really appreciate how WAY above and beyond she went to help me sell my house. I can't express how nice it was to have full confidence that things were taken care of when I was 1,200 miles away and pretty helpless to do much. She took care of everything and ALWAYS had a positive attitude. Kristin's wonderful. I would hire her again, and I hope to be able to recommend her to my friends and family who remain in the Austin market.

Kristin Kreisel was amazing in our recent house purchase. She sold our last house and we were equally as pleased. Our move was an out of state one, and we could not view the property. She did everything to make the process smooth. She took video, pictures, utilized FaceTime and was truly our eyes and ears. She pointed out issues or things that may be of concern and helped us deal with them. She was not in it for the sale; she really wanted us to be happy. She was on top of every inspection and each detail - nothing missed. Her assistant Leah was fabulous as well. She offered timely and useful info and made sure everyone was on the same page all the time.

I would recommend Realty Austin and specifically Kristin to everyone I know!

I have only amazing things to say about Kristin. We had never gone through the process of searching for and buying a home before and now we can't imagine anyone doing so without a perfect guide like Kristin. Kristin patiently answered our novice questions and kept us well-informed throughout the whole process. We learned a ton from her. She's also super cool, so she had a feel for the style of home and neighborhood we were aiming for. Once we found a home, she was a vital advocate working for us in the negotiation process. It felt like she was our lawyer, we made sure to consult with her about everything. Her experience and expertise really shined through in our negotiations with the seller. Again, we can't imagine going through all that without a knowledgeable, patient, and cool realtor like Kristin.

I could literally go on for days raving about Kristin Kreisel.

Kristin has now helped my partner and me with three very different and complex transactions, and she is always the first person I call when I have a real estate need or when I need to make a referral. From our perspective, all three transactions were an absolute pleasure. From pulling 100's of comps to get the absolute right listing price; navigating the complexities of buying in a flood plane; to buying from senior sellers with limited technology. She made it a delight.

I can't wait for our next deal.

Thank you Kristin for the help on both occasions with buying and selling my house. I couldn't have asked for any better.... still hard to believe it sold in 48 hours !!!!

We recently purchased a new home in Austin and LOVED working with Kristin Kreisel as our realtor from Realty Austin! We purchased a new build and she helped bridge the gap between us and the builder. We ran into many major bumps in the road with the builder from the very beginning, so Kristin really personalized her services to what we needed. If it wasn't for Kristin we would've canceled the purchase all together.

We appreciated her honesty and genuine care for us and the sale of our home. Kristin is very organized, knowledgeable and on top of the Austin housing market. She was always available to answer questions or help us look for the answers that we needed. I would recommend her to all of my friends and family and to anyone that is looking for an honest, knowledgeable realtor.

Kristin Kreisel is an amazing realtor. We had some particularly tricky aspects to our selling and buying a home and she was able to navigate those challenges without breaking a sweat. She got us a great offer on our home a mere 24 hours after being on MLS. Before it was time to close we offered on two homes that didn't pan out, but she got us into the third one we offered on that's just perfect for our family. It's really more than we imagined getting and for less than we were going to pay for the others. I really can't recommend her enough. She knew how to break down our wish list to what was important to help us find what would make us happy.

I called her on three different occasions but my wife and I got cold feet about selling our home twice. The third time we were definitely ready. Months passed between each time, and she never ever pressured me or made me feel weird about bailing. She was very patient letting us find the right time to go for it.

If we ever sell our home we will definitely be calling her again!

Let me tell you my thoughts on having Kristin as our agent. The worst thing I can say about her, is that she is amazing. If exceeding expectations was an Olympic sport, the IOC would have to mine new metals to make an entirely new medal out of, because she shouldn't settle for gold.

She has an energy that instills confidence at times of uncertainty. She is able to be direct without being contentious. I value qualities like this because they are not skills that can simply be taught. If I could, I'd buy another house through Kristin because she just makes the process so dang fun.


January 2016

We really loved working with Kristin. She was amazing - and if we ever end up back in Austin, she will literally be the first person we contact when we begin looking for a house.

Kristin was an absolutely great mix of fun/easy-going while still being incredibly professional. She makes you feel comfortable while still knowing you are going to get amazing, top-class service.

We cannot say enough good things about her and will quickly recommend her to any friends that are looking to move.

Kristin was very helpful, I don't think that I would have been successful without her help.

She earned my trust with her knowledge and was always there to answer questions when I needed her.

She also referred me to a number of great resources throughout the whole process. I was very satisfied with her.

Kristin is amazing. She has dealt with some crazy transactions and even crazier people, but she does it with poise and creative solutions. She is eager to help grow my business and will be getting lots of future business from me.

I've never heard anyone describe the process of buying or selling a home as easy or particularly pleasant. In fact...I went into the process with a profound amount of anxiety and dread. Enter Kristin - an all around Wonder Woman of the Austin realty world. In the four months or so it took to find our dream home Kristin was our biggest ally, supporter, negotiator, therapist, interior designer, landscaping consultant, and loyal friend. As everyone in Austin knows, the market here is TOUGH. The slightest misstep can result in you missing out on the home of your dreams. I was never afraid of that happening with Kristin. Every single day she was there to guide us through the real estate labyrinth that is Austin while constantly assuring us that we would soon find our perfect home. And she was right! Thank you, Kristin!

It's tough to describe how awesome Kristin is. Imagine the black blazer she's wearing in this photo bedazzled, and add a pair of steel lady dagger cufflinks and you begin to see what I mean. She is so incredibly professional while at the same time so real that we found ourselves actually enjoying the long and often painful Austin job-hunt search. We had seen another Realtor prior to being referred to Kristin, and we were consistently confused and overwhelmed. As first-time home buyers in this crazy market, it is very easy to get lost. But Kristin is not only the calm in the storm, she's your never-ending advocate. And not just financially. She genuinely cares that you get the house that's right for you, and is an unwavering positive presence every single step of the way. We are very proud now to refer her every chance we get!

My wife and I always dreamed of owning a home together. Having Kristin help us through the process made all the difference! Her knowledge of the real estate biz and Austin neighborhoods made us feel comfortable as we explored our options, while her patience and kindness made the entire experience  enjoyable. We and now are the proud owners of a home in Austin and can't imagine having done it with anyone else at our side!  

Sal Primo, Zillow Review

Working with Kristin to find a location for my new business was a wonderful experience! She has excellent communication skills, attention to detail, a strong sense of urgency -- but most of all, she's a delight to work with on a personal level! I hope I get to work with her again some day, but until then I will most certainly recommend her to others!

Stephanie Ayars

Kristin isn't a real estate agent, she is your very own personal real estate shopper. She takes the time to know what you want and she really walks you through the process every step of the way. Her job isn't to put you in a house; she takes the time to put you in the perfect home for you! And, I don't know anyone else who would take the time to answer every question we had at all hours of the day (even after we bought the house). I was so worried about all the stress of buying a home, but Kristin made it fun!

Lindsay Stillman

I was expecting the home-buying process to be an incredibly difficult slog, but Kristin managed to make it an enjoyable experience. She was very attentive to our (sometimes changing) requirements and showed us some great options. Her experience and expertise were invaluable as we put in offers and negotiated with the seller. Her knowledge of both the market and the process got us into a house we love faster than we ever could have imagined, and I couldn't be happier with our choice to work with Kristin.

Ben Cohen

Kristin helped me search, buy, and transition into my first home. Not only was she consistently available, and incredibly patient, she also genuinely cares about creating a safe and fun home-buying experience. I know she did a lot of work behind the scenes to secure a great price for my home, double-check numbers and agreements in contracts, and to aggregate information so I would not be overwhelmed. Kristin loves her job, and it shows. She is someone I plan on working with again, and can't wait to recommend to friends.

Tiffany Chow

Moving to Austin with less than a week's notice, I knew I would need help from my sister. Lucky for me, she's a Realtor. Even luckier, she's a damn good one. When we had explored all of the properties within my price range and location requirements with no perfect fit, Kristin managed to find me an amazing house that wasn't even listed! She was persistent in her search while reassuring and calming me every step of the way. I highly recommend her to anyone needing help buying, renting or selling their own amazing space.
