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.

I am most pleased to recommend Ms. Kat Brooks to you. She has been my personal real estate agent for over ten years and has handled all of my real estate transactions, which also includes my move from Austin, TX to Houston, TX and the subsequent resale of that property. Throughout that time Kat’s service has been exemplary and her knowledge of the real estate industry unparalleled. Kat is one of the most valued agents in the Austin area and has artfully handled even the most complex of buyers and sellers; most of all Kat gets the deal done! Beyond her stellar real estate career, Kat was also personally responsible for a significant gift to the Long Center capital campaign which was the most important community project in the last decade. Kat is a revered citizen of Austin and well respected by all who know her. The choice to use Kat’s services is a wise one, for I have found her to be the best and most talented realtor in Austin.
I am writing on behalf of Ms. Kat Brooks to share with you my highest recommendation for her as a real estate agent Ms. Brooks successfully sold a residential property of mine in 2014 and I am confident that it was her hard work that closed the deal. Ms. Brooks took on the listing on my property after I had already tried listing it with several other realtors who were not able to find a good, qualified buyer. Kat went above the call of duty in advertising the house, personally showing the property to several qualified potential buyers, and negotiating the best price possible for me as her client. She was extremely professional throughout the escrow period and was diligent about informing me about the buyer’s wishes as we worked through the inspection period which allowed the deal to close quickly and on time. I believe that Ms. Brooks’ knowledge of the market, access to high caliber clients, and her willingness to advertise my home through the proper mediums were the reasons she was able to bring in buyers who were the right clientele for a unique house like mine when other realtors did not I would use Ms. Brooks for her services again if I was listing a home in the Austin area, and I recommend that you do too. I hope that you will give her your full consideration for listing your property. Should you require any further information about my experience working with Ms. Brooks, please contact me at my office at (512) 463-0516.

Words cannot express my complete gratitude for Kat. I have never known another agent who will work so diligently to help you find your perfect new home or negotiate the best deal on the home you are trying to sell. Communication and professionalism come naturally to Kat, and she is a warm and reassuring presence throughout the entire real estate process. She takes away the stress because she is always 10 steps ahead. Perhaps the best compliment I can give Kat is the fact that I listed her as my realtor in my will! If I pass on, I want to go knowing that my estate is in the best hands and that my child will be well taken care of. She is the only person I would trust for such a big job!
We had our home in Lakeway listed with a local agent for over 6 months and felt we had exhausted the local market interest so decided we needed to change. We were looking for someone with a wider market reach both nationally and internationally. We selected Kuper Sotheby’s due to their presence across North America and around the globe. Our local agent referred us to Kat Brooks there who he described as an elite agent. We met Kat and were impressed by her interest, enthusiasm, professionalism and drive. We made a small price adjustment and gave Kat the time to put together a very impressive range of marketing materials for our home: incredible photographs, stunning brochure, detailed floor plan graphics and placement on websites, magazines and news sites around the world. Kat relaunched our home sale shortly after that and within two weeks we had two acceptable offers, one of which we selected. Kat handled the sales process all the way to closing very smoothly and was even able to sell much of our furniture to the new owners. Throughout it all Kat was very professional, diligent and persistent and was always available to us. We recommend Kat and Kuper Sotheby’s International Realty without hesitation.

With so many choices today to market your home we are very glad that we chose Kat Brooks with Kuper Sothebys International Realty. Through the course of listing and then negotiating more than one offer, we were extremely happy with Kat’s industry knowledge, responsiveness, 24/7 availability and detailed attention to record-keeping and timelines which continued right through inspections, negotiating repairs, and closing. At all times she listened and made suggestions based on meeting “our” goals. Kat coordinated multi-levels of marketing personally followed up with other Brokers for showings feedback, coordinated inspections and provided recommendations on repairs/contractors while keeping all transaction details moving smoothly through to closing. Kat demonstrates a strict work ethic and love of real estate. Her communication was timely and appreciated as we traveled outside the US during the negotiations timeframe. Her attention to detail, as well as her ability to get things done behind the scenes to keep a deal on track and according to strict timelines, was highly respected by myself, a retired Broker. We highly recommend Kat Brooks to all who desire a first-class real estate professional who will treat you like her only client and friend while making your real estate goals happen.

I rarely have the opportunity to write these kinds of recommendations due to the disappointment that too often happens in selling one’s home, but this time it’s a pleasure to do so. If you are really serious about selling your home or buying a new one this lady is undoubtedly the best that there is or that we have ever had! Kat came to our rescue after a very long dry spell of not even getting viewers of our very nice property at Barton Creek Lakeside. Within less than 60 days we had a happy buyer and a very happy seller. She is a professional in every way and knows how to market a home. She treated us with respect and we felt as though she was actually family in the way she paid attention to our needs and what had to be done to accomplish our move. Trust me--if you want your objective achieved, Kat is the property specialist you need!

I wanted to send you a note to let you know how much I appreciated the way you and your team handled the marketing and sale of my father’s home. You and your team understood the emotions, pride of ownership and sense of place that my father was experiencing as he prepared for and sold his home of 44 years. You dealt with him with tremendous respect for these emotions while working hard to overcome challenges and find a new homeowner to build their next generation. Thank you so much for not only marketing and selling his home but for helping him with the emotions dealing with a major change in his life. I have no doubt that if we had used someone else besides the Kat Brooks Team, the home would still be for sale and staring down a long cold winter. Thank you so much for everything you’ve done for my father and our family. You have built such a tremendous real estate business. It’s amazing how successful you can get when you are very good at what you do, have confidence in your team and put in the hard work to get the job done!

We could not be more grateful for Kat Brooks and all she did to help us with the sale of our home. From start to finish, she was incredibly professional, knowledgeable, and was always available for anything we needed or any questions we had.

Kat is an exceptional realtor and she really went above and beyond our expectations. If you are looking for a loyal agent who has your best interests at heart, you won't be disappointed with Kat Brooks!
