" I've worked with Kim for over a year and a half as an investor buying properties and there hasn't been a better agent to work with! She sources great deals in the Austin area and works her magic to get the offers accepted. She has been one of the biggest assets to my business since day 1 and I would recommend her to anyone looking to buy a home! "
"Working with Kim has been great! Kim has a helpful, friendly, low-pressure approach that is immensely valuable in the home buying process. Her interactions with us and others in the process, including other agents, have been great. In short, it has been a pleasure working with Kim, and we look forward to working with her in the future. "
"Kim Fodor is the best realtor! She is friendly, kind, patient, and very tuned into the Austin Real Estate market. I can't imagine using anyone else! "
"I am happy to share my experience with Kim. She is simply THE BEST! My husband and I could not have been more happy. She was extremely responsive, personable, and direct. She gave her opinion when we asked for it but also helped us to figure out what our opinions were too. We were a little nervous about the amount of time it was taking title to wire our money and she called (often) until she got an answer and we got our money! We are moving out of state and sad we cannot use her again! "
"Kim Fodor is nothing but spectacular. We have worked with her on several occasions and could not be happier. She is informed, professional and delightful to be around. Thanks again, Kim! "
"Kim is absolutely amazing! She goes above and beyond to represent her clients keeps a constant pulse on the real estate market. Kim provided us with critical strategic advice from pricing to showing that enabled our house to sell in the wild Austin market. Kim's instincts and initiative are exactly what every buyer/seller needs to succeed. We had been burned by real estate agents in the past that just mailed it in, but Kim does all the work for you and goes above and beyond to obtain the key information you need to know regarding which houses are the best match for you, what you need to renovate, how to price your home, how to show, and when to sell. We highly highly recommend Kim Fodor to anyone looking to buy or sell. No more research is needed. Look no further and choose Kim. You won't be sorry! "
"Kim was fantastic, professional, and polite. I have referred her to at least two others in my neighborhood. She presents the sweetness and caring we could only hope for. If I had a real estate company, I would try to hire her away from you. "
"I would like to assure you that Kim Fodor is the epitome of amazing and personalized service. This is not the first time Kim has sold a house for us. We wrote a review for our experience with Kim in 2018 that she has on her web page, and that experience brought us immediately back to her. We will never work with another agent in the Austin area. I will add to our rave review about this experience with Kim. We are extremely grateful and not surprised at how well Kim read a housing market in the middle of a whiplash turn from competing offers for thousands over asking to a slump. Kim was still able to get us over the asking price in less than a week on the market. The combination of her experience and her effort at keeping up minute by minute at what is going on in the market made the difference, and we are sure it kept us from selling at a loss. We are very, very grateful. Thank you, Kim! "
"Our realtor, Kim Fodor, was outstanding! She was extremely informative, responsive, and patient throughout the entire process. As first-time homebuyers, we couldn’t have asked for a better agent. Highly recommend! "
"This was my second successful real estate experience/transaction with Kim. This was my first home sale. She was with me every step of the way. Kim even held nighttime open houses for potential buyers to really give them a feel for the views from my condo. (I think that really helped me get top dollar for my condo). I would highly recommend Kim and will likely use her again in the future. "
"Kim Fodor is the realtor ever! So knowledgeable and always very quick to respond and keep me updated with all of my real estate needs! I will never use anyone else. "
"Many terms of endearment apply in describing our experience and relationship with Kim, but we will settle on two words..... Adorably Fabulous! She is an absolute joy to work with, and we bonded immediately! All stress was thrown to the wind in the sale of our home because everything ran so smoothly. Items of business were handled, addressed, and solved. It was all done in a timely, professional, and respectful manner, with smiles blanketing our many conversations. To describe it best, I wrote a short poem that came to me one evening. Adorably Kim
She is adorably Kim,
She makes us smile,
She greets the day,
The ways of Kim!
Professional with personality,
Business with character,
Targets the moment,
The ways of Kim!
Heart of gold,
Warmth of comfort,
Expressive in thought,
The ways of Kim!
Like a river ever flowing,
Changes of life,
Greeting her firstborn,
The ways of Adorably Kim...
Wife, Mother, and Friend "
"A little over a month ago, we were looking to buy a home with Kim. As first-time buyers in Austin, we were intimidated by the competitiveness of the Austin market, but Kim was so driven and helped us stay motivated to find our beautiful home. We never felt isolated working with her, and what we appreciated the most was that she was very transparent with us while pushing forward to still get our goals met. She’s extremely sharp with how she negotiates and relays all our questions and concerns to everyone involved in the buying process so eloquently. She has been our family and friend’s Realtor for years, and we wouldn’t seek out anyone else! Thank you, Kim! "
"Kim is incredible to work with! As a real estate investor, I am always in search of a great deal, and within 2 days of first meeting Kim, she had found me a house to buy and flip. Even with competing offers, Kim was able to work her magic and get our offer accepted. Her communication is outstanding, and she was working at 9:30 pm on a Saturday night to get our contract inked and executed. I’m looking forward to doing many more deals with her and would highly recommend her to anyone seeking a house to buy! "
"Kim did an excellent job in assisting me during the entire buying process. Many thanks to her. "
"Kim Fodor is an amazing agent! I used her to buy my condo and then to sell it recently. Each time she provided the right advice, she was there to settle me when I got ruffled and always had my back in the transaction. I would highly recommend Kim as an agent for your next transaction. "
"Working with Kim Fodor was a pleasure. She was very thorough, competent, and advised us every step of the way. There wasn't any question she didn't follow up in a timely manner. Her associate Lauren Spurlin was also excellent. I will recommend both of these ladies to anyone ... "
"Kim has been and continues to be great. The most responsive, helpful, and professional real estate agent we have ever worked with. 5-star rating all around! "
"I recently chose Kim Fodor to market my home because I had no doubt she would close a deal. Kim diligently sought and negotiated an outstanding deal then managed it through closing. I trust her advice and appreciate how she walked me through all decisions. Kim’s honesty, outstanding work ethic, experience, strategic thinking, client service, and delightful personality made it all a smooth process. The only downside, I believe her commission was not commensurate to her work. Who says that? "
"We would like to highly recommend Kim Fodor Brockman to any investor looking to buy in the Austin Metro area. She is diligent, dedicated, and extremely patient with seasoned investors like us who are extremely picky about our purchase criteria. She always goes the extra mile to make sure we are satisfied with our purchases. Thank you, Kim! "
"We worked with Kim Fodor buying our first home, and she was amazing. Kim was always very responsive; she kept us realistic but also didn't waste our time looking at undesirable listings. Kim really took the time to try to understand what we wanted and was present when we needed her insight. To top it off she is just a really nice person: highly recommend! "
"Kim Fodor is a sweet and nice person. I was referred to Kim from a friend, and she helped me find the right place she knew what I wanted. Kim was very patient as it took a while to find the right place and four years later when I was ready to sell, Kim was the obvious choice to help sell my home and as planned it sold 1st week and closed three weeks later. Thanks, Kim! "
"Kim was a dream to work with. She was incredibly responsive, knowledgeable and hard-working. Kim made the process so much easier. From the moment we met Kim, we truly felt she had our best interest in mind. I would recommend her to anyone! "
"We worked with Kim Fodor, and it was a wonderful experience. Our whole family, extended family included, will always use her. She was so knowledgeable and always made us feel like she was truly our advocate to help us get the best deal. She was available 24/7 and stuck with us though multiple homes that we tried to offer on. One offer she wrote at 10:30 at night. She went above and beyond and is super friendly and easy to talk to. I can't say enough good things about her, and I will recommend her 1,000 times over to everyone we know. We are in love with our house, it's hard to find an affordable home in a good area in our price range in this crazy market, but she promised us we would still find our dream home and we did, and we feel like it was a really good deal. Buying a home in a state you're unfamiliar with can be scary, but she made the process easy. We love Kim!! "
"Kim's assessment of our home was spot on, and her recommendation on how to market the house ended outstanding for us. We were able to sell our property at a higher price than expected with very minimal inconvenience during the preparation and selling process. The diligence she performed in determining and obtaining the highest price we imagined was very impressive and allowed us a great relief of stress. Kim also found us our dream home and was always promptly available to us during our search process. In addition, the negotiating skills we saw Kim perform were clever and confident. At all times Kim treated us like we were her number one and only customer! "
"Kim is absolutely outstanding and the best I have seen when it comes to Austin real estate. She assisted my wife and located our dream home in Austin. This was a complex transaction, and she is very good at her job. From the beginning to the end (shopping around to closing day), everything Kim did was absolute perfection. After having viewed multiple properties and finally making an offer (which Kim perfectly tailored for acceptance), Kim worked vigorously throughout the entire process. Notably, once the offer to our new home was accepted, Kim simultaneously rented out our former condo, in one day! This was a relief because we contemplated the possibility of selling it to avoid the inconvenience. I worked very closely with Kim throughout the entire purchase process as I tend to be very thorough and detail oriented. For context, I am an attorney and have a high standard for quality of professional services. Kim exceeds expectations as a professional and exemplifies what a real estate agent should be. She is a hard worker and can walk you through the complexities of purchasing a home. Her advice and suggestions speak volumes, and she understands intricacies of the Austin real estate market. Indeed, we would not have obtained our house, but for her services. Kim understands financial factors and foresees potential issues along the way. Importantly, she makes herself available throughout the entire 30-45 day closing process, making herself an invaluable resource. If you are looking for Austin real estate, Kim is perfect for the job. I honestly can't brag enough about her, and I am very selective when it comes to endorsing and recommending anyone. Using Kim's dedication and specialized knowledge, I am confident that Kim can assist you to obtain what you are looking for. In the end, we were truly blessed to have worked with Kim. We unconditionally recommend Kim's services and will use her in the future. Thank you, Kim! "
"It has been a pleasure to work with Kim. She certainly went above and beyond in my opinion. Actually, Kim feels like she’s part of the family now. We will definitely use Kim again (if the need ever arises) and I will not hesitate to pass Kim’s name on to family and friends. "
"We can't say enough about the amazing job Kim Fodor did selling our house. After a bad experience with another agent we had worked with before who had 30 years experience in Austin, we found Kim at Realty Austin, and she hit the ground running. She took the lead helping us to upgrade, finding fantastic deals on everything we needed. Her energy and dedication to our sale were incredible. Kim’s marketing strategies and skills were very impressive, she followed up every single lead, and she is always thinking about the next step. Kim goes above and beyond on so many levels and has a great network of people in all aspects of home sales. We had read prior reviews about how personalized her service is, and it is so true. We will always turn to Kim for real estate in Austin! "
"My spouse and I would absolutely recommend Kim Fodor for any real estate needs. We have worked with many agents, but never a more dedicated agent than Kim Fodor. Kim is positive, enthusiastic, thorough and tenacious. She quickly responds to calls or texts and promptly follows through on reaching out to agents, compiling research, setting appointments, generating necessary documents and advocating for her clients. Kim definitely made our buying experience run smoothly and we consider her a friend. "
"Kim Fodor was fantastic, and I will only use her in the future and will recommend her to everyone! It was the easiest, best real estate transaction I've been involved in. Kim is the best! "
"I couldn't have been happier working with Kim Fodor. Her expertise at every step of the home buying process was invaluable. She is smart, professional and a fierce advocate for her clients. She was responsive at all hours and completely dedicated to making sure all of our needs were met. We found a great house in our desired neighborhood for the right price, and we absolutely couldn't have done it without her. Not to mention she's a joy to be around and was always so sweet and patient with our rambunctious kids. I would recommend her to friends and family in a heartbeat. "
"Kim was great especially with us being out of state buyers. She found time to dedicate to us and video tour homes until we found the right one. She was very helpful in discussing terminology and strategies pertaining to offers. She answered calls and returned voicemails. She did a wonderful job and we are very pleased. If any honor, promotion, or recognition can come from this review she deserves it. "
"I feel incredibly fortunate to have worked with Kim. She worked around our schedule, was always on time, and provided helpful feedback whenever we needed an experienced opinion on the houses we were viewing. I always felt like she was in our corner and, in the end, helped us get a house in budget, in the right school district, and in the time frame we were looking to buy. Kim made us feel like we were always her top priority. I would jump at recommending Kim to friends, family, and anyone else. "
"We've worked with Kim Fodor several times (both buying and selling). She is very knowledgeable about the Austin area and has a large network. She has guided us through every transaction and is very conscientious and diligent - always providing updates and answering questions at any time of day. What makes Kim stand out from others is her personable, yet genuine nature. This is what makes working with her so special, and why we continue to do so. Thanks, Kim! "
"Kim went above and beyond to service me... She was exceptional. She is the most polite, respectful, and professional realtor I have had the pleasure of working with. Definitely 5 stars. "
"Kim Fodor is an excellent real estate agent and my husband and I highly recommend her. We have bought and sold many homes and found Kim to be efficient, thorough, enthusiastic and a fierce client's advocate. She always has a positive attitude and is willing to show as many homes as it takes to find the right home for you. Kim doesn't quit when the contract is signed, she is more than willing to obtain comps, provide research and share her expertise. She IS the best and you won't be disappointed if you take the opportunity to work with her. "
"Kim has been an absolute delight to work with through the entire process. Her knowledge of the community and the attention to our \must haves\", definitely sets her apart from typical real estate agents. I will definitely solicit her services for any future property transaction(s) and highly recommend her to anyone seeking the same. Professional, courteous, knowledgeable, A++ performer. "
"I had the pleasure of working with Kim Fodor. She was very professional, kind and very thorough. She came to me as a referral from my nephew and his wife. She worked with them and helped them through the process of buying and closing on their first home and subletting their apartment. They had nothing but good things to say about her. I had called another Realtor that I had worked with in the past and was not very pleased with the lack of information I received from this person, so when my nephew recommended Kim, I jumped at the chance to contact her. She responded to my call promptly and we set up an appointment to meet. From the moment I met her I felt comfortable. It was obvious that she was very experienced and I knew that I had selected the right person to assist me in selling my home. At our second meeting, she came prepared with all the comps for my neighborhood and made me feel very positive about the process of selling my home. Kim was always available to me whenever I had any questions. She was also very informative on how to stage my home and jumped right in to assist me with whatever needed to be done to complete the staging. She was there for me every step of the way. She is a great negotiator and was able to negotiate the best sale price for my house. She is simply amazing to work with and feel like I have a new friend in her. I will definitely be calling on her if I decide to buy a home in the future. I have already recommended her to my family and friends. Kim is simply the best at what she does. Kim, thank you for making this process painless as possible. Again, you are the best! "
"Kim Fodor is an agent with some real common sense and zeal. She has a great attitude, while also being very nice and friendly. She has a great amount of experience and education, but more than that she is just real. I like how well Kim knows her local and surrounding communities. She is very on the ball too, getting back to you very fast with updates and always answering her phone. Buying and selling can be difficult, and with a teammate like her on your side it is so much more seamless. I am excited to finally have the whole process behind me, and a new friend. Thanks Kim Fodor. "
"Bought a one-bedroom condo in Northwest Austin with help from Kim Fodor. I am no fan of real estate agents, but I have to admit, Kim really went out of her way to find a place in a specific complex that I wanted. (It wasn't even listed, but it was in the complex I had told her I liked.) She's a hard worker and has an aggressive acquisition style which is a must in the current market. [What I mean by this is that she found me a place that wasn't even technically for sale yet and did all kinds of extra work to make sure I got what I wanted.] I'd recommend her without hesitation. Five Stars! Thanks again! "
"I absolutely adore Kim. Not easy working out of state, and my preference is delegating to folks that have my best interests at heart. I'm not easy to impress. I'm not passive, but I want to be informed on things I don't know, and may not anticipate. I hate babysitting professionals, and fired two realtors before finding her. I understood what was going on, got involved when needed - and otherwise - trusted them to get things done firmly and fairly. Use her, trust her...you won't be sorry. "
"I've had the opportunity to work with Kim Fodor, twice. After the amazing experience I had buying my first home with her, I knew who I could turn to when I was in the market for a second. We exchanged dozens of emails and visited multiple properties for a year before I finally pulled the trigger. As always, Kim was extremely responsive, patient and helpful throughout the process. I can't say enough about Kim's positive energy and demeanor. But most important, she has the knowledge and experience to navigate Austin's fast-moving real estate maker. "
"I was referred to Kim Fodor by a very good friend and it was a good decision she did a great job for me she understood what I was looking for right a way and found it much quicker then I thought it would take. I would recommend Kim to my friends. Thanks Kim, she is funny too. "
"Kim is a highly motivated individual with a heart of gold. Working with Kim is delightful and above all, I value her integrity and sense of urgency. We had an all cash deal within 24 hours and, nine days later, I was handed the keys to my investment property. The entire experience was seamless and pleasant. I enjoy working with leading Austin professionals and Kim is among the best I know. It would be an understatement to say that Kim exceeded expectations - she went way beyond the norm. "
"Kim Fodor is a class act and an amazing broker. We had to work under some extremely tight deadlines and we passed all the hurdles with ease. She goes above and beyond from a service level standpoint and is always thinking of creative ways to leverage the current situation to your advantage. "
"I can't say enough good things about Kim Fodor. She showed us many homes, prepared offers, investigated questions we had, and went the extra mile over and over. She is very professional and proactive and provided many helpful ideas as we tried to figure out where to live, which neighborhoods, which houses and so on. If we buy or sell again we will be giving Kim a call. "
"Let me be clear----buying a home is a very emotional time for a person trying to find their forever home. I had talked with several agents, before I found Kim. She has been our rock, never waiving from our objectives. Kim's generosity, kindness, and patience are true virtues that has made her success ours too. My husband and I very happy with our new home and hope Kim will continue to be an important part of our family. "
"There are very few words that I can describe the happiness that I felt buying my first home here in Austin. I had many questions and I'm blessed to have Kim Fodor as my Realtor. She expressed patience and professionalism from the inception to the final closing date. She answered all my questions thoroughly, promptly and guided me through the whole purchasing process from showing me homes and explaining the paperwork. Kim is a genuine down to earth person with savvy negotiating skills. She had the seller decrease the sale price to account for some repairs that needed to be fixed. Although my home probably wasn't her largest transaction, it sure felt that I was always at the top of her list. She has the pure vocation of helping people find a wonderful home and has her clients best interest in mind. I can't say enough good things about her, all I can say is if you need to buy or sell a house call Kim Fodor! "
"As a first-time homebuyer, I had plenty of questions. Fortunately, I also had Kim Fodor on my team. Kim is responsive, knowledgeable and extremely honest. She answered all my questions, gave great advice and made the entire process painless. I've already recommended her to friends and hope to work with them again soon. "
"Kim was fantastic - I couldn't be happier with my end results. I will absolutely refer anyone I know to her. "
"Kim was awesome! I truly enjoyed working with her, and will work with her again in a year. Thank you! "
"I can't say enough good about my experience working with Kim. What I was anticipating being a long and tedious process, became a fun and exciting experience. Working with Kim, I always felt I was in good hands. Not only is she professional, experienced, and highly informed, but she has an energy and passion for her work that separates her from the rest. A total pleasure! She knows her stuff and makes sure she knows you. Extremely accommodating and goes the extra mile, all with a genuine smile. I definitely recommend Kim Fodor for all your personal Real Estate needs. "
"I had a wonderful experience working with Kim! She is polished, knows the Austin market and thoroughly understands her client's needs. Kim saved me time and money and I absolutely love my new home! "
"Kim understood exactly what we were looking for. She also took the time to go look at options ahead of time in order to discard options she knew we would not be interested in. She is also very professional but most importantly, very nice. "
"Working with Kim was a fantastic experience from start to finish. Total professionalism and knowledge, paired with a vibrant enthusiasm that sets her far apart from anyone else I’ve worked with. This combination made every moment that could otherwise have been exhausting, a total pleasure. Her energy is contagious and made the process quite enjoyable. Going forward I plan on working with Kim for all my real estate needs and highly recommend her to anyone else looking to work with a Real Estate Professional. "
"Kim is one of the most hardworking, honest and professional people I’ve worked with. She always goes far beyond her call of duty and does anything in her power to make her client’s happy. She is extremely friendly and is a true pleasure to work with. "
"My husband Ron and I began our downtown condo search over one year ago and came in contact with Kim. From the initial meeting she was knowledgeable, warm, accessible, responsive, and took all the time we needed to show us properties. Kim’s expertise, patience, and dedication to us as clients guided us to a wonderful new home in downtown Austin. We cannot say enough positive things about Kim and we highly recommend her to any new clients. "
