Kat began her career in quite a different field: fine wine. After several years spent helping people pair wines perfectly with their meals Kat relocated to Austin where she continues to share her expertise with others. This time, it's by pairing you with your perfect home.
Since starting her career as a Luxury Home Specialist in 1999, Kat has found great success and personal fulfillment in helping others find a piece of the good life here in Austin. Her comprehensive knowledge of the Austin area real estate market and community life in the city and surrounding areas ensure that clients are at home in their new homes. Her specialty areas include Austin, Travis, Westlake, waterfront properties, ranches, and most things in between.
When it comes to navigating home buying or selling, Kat takes a full-service approach and will do whatever possible to ensure a positive experience for her clients. Not only is Kat a fabulous realtor, but a wonderful resource and most importantly a friend. Kat's expertise, kindness, flexibility and true understanding of our needs made our home buying experience unbelievably effortless, wrote former client Marc Sachs in a recent testimonial.
In addition to her career, Kat finds great enjoyment in giving back to the community that has given her so much. She currently serves as a member of the Christopher Guild - Center for Child Protection Services and on the board of the Central Texas Water Coalition. She also served on the Boards for the Texas Hill Country Food & Wine Festival, Any Baby Can, and The Long Center for the Performing Arts. Each of these organizations provided me with new and challenging experiences that have translated into an acute awareness of the ever-changing events scene here in Austin, Kat explains. As a treasured community volunteer, Kat Brooks is able to help Austin continue to grow into the vibrant city it is becoming and immerse herself in the communities she loves.
"Kat Brooks is the definition of a true professional. Not only was she an absolute pleasure to work with, but she provided a wealth of valuable experience and industry knowledge. Her advice on selling my home was always sound, unbiased, and in my best interest. I was continually impressed by her responsiveness, patience, and helpful insights throughout the entire process. Despite unforeseen issues with my home and questions that arose during the selling period, Kat always followed through in the most professional way. If you are searching for a realtor that will go above and beyond for her client and make the whole process as stress-free and possible, Kat is for you. I feel very lucky to have had such a wonderful realtor and honored to know her a person."
"I will keep this simple. We had our Barton Creek home listed for 6 months with 2 different agents and received no offers. We switched to Kat and re-listed at a cosmetic 1.5% price drop, and sold in 4 days. She is constantly in the market and has a sense for where it is at and knows who the buyers are. She was available to us 7-days a week and was always on top of whatever the issue was. It was a pleasure for my wife and me to work with her, and we are happy to have her as a friend now after the deal has closed."
"I am pleased to recommend the realtor services of Kat Brooks. Kat made it easy for us to find a home in Austin. While we lived just outside Washington DC, Kat quickly helped us learn the Austin area, select a neighborhood, and gauge the market. She worked diligently with us to define and refine our priorities. Working day and night, accommodating our short scheduled out of town visits, Kat identified over 30 properties across Austin and chauffeured us around until we found those that we wanted to submit an offer. She guided us through the process, assembled all the documents and promptly delivered our offer. We felt well represented by Kat Brooks as she negotiated every point for us, each step of the way. Even while she was on a well-deserved vacation, Kat managed the process flawlessly. And it continued well after the contract, with the inspections, the re-negotiations, the closing, and the introductions to neighbors and community. Kat Brooks is a true professional, dedicated to her client’s experience and satisfaction. We are proud to say Kat is our realtor, and anyone that has the pleasure to work with her will be delighted."
