"I've had the pleasure of working with Jonathan twice, once to purchase and once to sell. Jonathan made a complicated experience simple, was always available for any questions or problems that came up, and worked hard to get me to a good price. I really cannot stress enough how available and helpful Jonathan constantly was, and would absolutely work with him again in the future. " - Daniel

"The move from Austin to Fort Worth would not have been possible without Jonathan. Jonathan and his team were absolutely phenomenal in supporting my husband and I as we sold our first home. This move was very sudden, and we had an aggressive timeline. I ran into Jonathan months prior by chance. I told him I would keep him in mind if by chance my husband and I needed a Realtor; I am so happy we did! Jonathan was so knowledgeable, supportive and reassuring throughout our selling process. He vowed to get us sold quickly, and that is just what he did! What we appreciate most about Jonathan is that he was always accessible for questions. My husband and I felt like we were his only clients because he was so prompt with his responses. Jonathan was so patient with us and was happy to explain (sometimes explain more than once) to ensure my husband, and I felt good with our decisions. I could really go on and on about Jonathan. He was an outstanding agent. He made this transition smooth for us. My husband and I were often out of town in Fort Worth, and yet Jonathan was still able to make us feel like the distance was not an issue and business carried on as usual. His team was great about sending emails with timelines and next steps, so there was never any guess work on our end. We were very pleased with Jonathan and his team. We would choose Jonathan and his team all over again. I will also recommend him to our Austin family and friends." - Jerell and Shawneequa

"We do a pretty high volume of transactions and Jonathan is certainly my favorite person to work with when I'm buying or selling. He delivers the best service I've experienced here in Austin. He puts himself in his client's shoes, listens to what they are trying to accomplish until he understands and can execute on that objective, regardless of whether he may think unreasonable. Jonathan is someone you can trust in achieving your real estate goals. I've been an agent/broker for 6 years and I even hire him to sell my properties. " - Nicholas

"Jonathan represented us in a house purchase. He was always available, down to earth and very easy to work with. He was very knowledgeable about the area, the process and he was able to get us s very fair deal on the purchase. We highly recommend and hope to work with him again in the future! " - Jennifer

"Jonathan was amazing! His real estate knowledge really helped me in getting top dollar for my property. He was always there when I needed him, walking me through each step! He is the best listing agent in Austin. What sets him apart from everyone else, is that he truly cares about his clients! He really wants to help people and be on your side. Please give him a call!

Kirsten's Client Testimonials

"We were very happy with Kirsten as our Real Estate agent. She made herself available for us and had excellent communication throughout the process. It was comforting to know that we could ask questions and receive feedback or answers in a short amount of time. Kirsten helped us negotiate with the sellers to get what we wanted to be done to the house before closing. Since it was our first house to buy, she helped set expectations and guide us through the process. At times, I was unsure of how certain negotiations were going during the option period and asked her to draft terminations for the contract. She kept saying that everything was fine and that we would get what we wanted but she also wrote the letters and we were prepared to send them if necessary. But she was right in the end and it was not needed, but it helped to know that we would be covered. She was sweet to our little girls as they ran around and played in a couple visits. All in all, we had a great experience and thank Kirsten very much! ." - Brad Naylor

"Kirsten Birkhold recently was our agent in purchasing a rental property. She was highly professional and moved quickly and efficiently to get our offer made in today's fast-paced market. As the deal progressed, she was readily available and responsive when we had questions or requested contract adjustments. Overall, she represented our interests exceptionally well. We highly recommend her. ." -Shiang Shiang Chen

"Kirsten Birkhold is an absolutely AMAZING agent - knowledge, personable, and dedicated! As a first time homebuyer, I had many questions and concerns. Kirsten was quick to respond to my questions and educated me on the process from the start. This made the entire home buying process easy and smoother than I ever would have imagined. I could not have asked for a better agent! ." - Lauren Clifton

"Kirsten was great to work with. I would recommend her to anyone looking for a home in Austin, especially first-time homebuyers. She was knowledgeable about the area (I'm a young, single woman looking for a safe place to live and she would let me know where to avoid). She made time on the weekends, during lunch, and after work to see homes because other times wouldn't fit in my schedule. We saw over 40 homes together, sometimes up to 6-7 a day and she was happy to help. I put offers down on five houses and she did all of the negotiating. I was very impressed when she was able to get the cost for the final home down to $10k below asking. And I thought offering $4k below would get rejected! Kirsten's negotiating saved me lots of money. And above all, she's just a great person! I had a lot of fun seeing houses together and getting excited about the house that we found that met all of my criteria.." - Lizi George

"My agent was Kirsten. She is awesome. She knew exactly what we were looking for and was interested in making us get the best deal, not the other way around. When we would look at houses she would open the door and let us do our thing without sticking to our backs and trying to force us to make an offer as other agents tend to do, that's the best kind of agent, one that works for you and will work to her best to get the results that you are looking for. I was a first-time buyer and am so grateful that Kirsten was the one helping us find a home. Her schedule was also always open to your needs, including showing up for an inspection if you were not able to. I guarantee if you use Kirsten as your agent, you will be above satisfied. There are not enough compliments I can give on paper with the experience that our family received from working with Kirsten that would come close to painting how amazing an agent she is, just know that my whole family was smiling throughout the whole experience. Thank you so much, Kirsten, you do outstanding work. ." - Carlos Velez
