Favorite Places in Austin
Kristina is a huge fan of the outdoors and food, which is why she fell in love with Austin so quickly! Although she enjoys trying new restaurants in the Austin area, sometimes she just craves her favorites, including Sway, Fonda San Miguel, and Justine’s in East Austin. She also loves walking along the Lady Bird Lake Hike and Bike Trail, exploring new watering holes in the Austin area, and playing soccer at Zilker Park.
I worked with Kristina to buy my first condo in Southeast Austin...I went from a timid skeptical renter interested in learning more to a confident and proud owner in months with Kristina's help! She answered all of my questions and help me understand all aspects of the process so that I was ready to dive in. She weathered the lightning fast Austin market with me without an ounce of frustration, sticking by my side until I found the right place. She really listened to what I was looking for in a home-by the end I knew she could have chosen my place for me without me seeing it. The entire time she was a good friend while professionally and quickly responding to all emails/texts/phone calls. She clearly has great relationships with her peers as all other aspects of the process were handled with ease, even when she was out of townTristina Pirkl
We would highly recommend Kristina! She made the buying process extremely smooth and answered our calls, emails and texts immediately. She helped us with odd questions we had and quickly found answers for us. She went above and beyond to help us every step of the way. We purchased property in Austin while we live in Sealy and minimized the number of trips we had to make to Austin. We would definitely go through Kristina again if purchasing property.Jennifer Sullivan
Kristina is an awesome realtor. Within 24 hrs of meeting her, we found our perfect house, made an offer and got it accepted. She is responsive, easy to work with and very knowledgeable of the home buying process. She implemented an excellent strategy all throughout the buying process, which ultimately resulted in us getting the house we wanted, at the price we wanted. I highly recommend Kristina.Kurt Rightler
Kristina was an incredible realtor who made my first home buying experience a stress-free success. As a first-time buyer, I was largely ignorant of the home buying process, and Kristina helpfully guided me through every step of it. She was great about recognizing what I wanted in a property, and she always responded to my questions promptly and helpfully. Thanks to her, my offer on a very in-demand property was accepted. And Kristina remained helpful and informative right through closing. I was nervous about the stresses of buying a home, but Kristina presented it as a logically ordered process that never overwhelmed me. Highly recommended!Justin Baldassare
We chose Kristina to sell our house in North Austin and we couldn't have been happier with our decision. She prepped us for the sale, communicating everything we could expect in the upcoming months, and listened to our concerns and opinions regarding all the little details. She was super knowledgeable and responded to all of our emails/texts within the hour (even while on vacation!).Sara Hernando
She listed the house for sale on April 4th, had an open house on April 8th, and the house was under contract (for the full asking price) by April 15th! Her personality and calming nature made the process really easy to navigate.
We will definitely be utilizing Kristina's services for buying a home in the near future. We would highly recommend her as a selling or buying agent.
