We have recommended Chris to numerous friends and colleagues.
This review is to give our highest recommendation to Chris Kappmeyer as a realtor. Chris has been our realtor for the past three years in 3-4 real estate transactions. He has saved us from one giant mistake and has introduced us to real estate investing, from which we are now happily earning a small extra income.Two times, Chris acted as our buyer’s agent. In 2013, we were looking for a more spacious home in the west/southwest Austin area. We had scoured Zillow and MLS listings for a couple of months, went to open houses, and came up with NOTHING. We had heard good things about Chris and met with him over lunch where he explained his buying and selling “processes”. These processes are well thought out multi-step programs, that have really worked to our benefit in buying and selling houses. Give Chris some time to explain the process, and you can benefit too.The first house we found was great in all aspects. Chris went out of his way to look for any development plans for this property, and in the end found that there were early plans to build a wastewater treatment plant right behind the house. It would look like our infinity pool was spilling over in a wastewater retention pond… Now, three years later, the wastewater treatment plant has been built, and we are forever grateful to Chris for diligently working to find answers to our questions, talking to his contacts at the City of Austin and steering us away from this disaster. After house-hunting for so long, we weren’t optimistic about finding another house anytime soon. But in December 2013, due to his automated MLS listing emails, we were the first ones to check out a new listing in our preferred neighborhood. Chris was out of town, but he managed to put an offer in that same weekend. Two other offers came in that weekend, but due to Chris unrelenting attention, and our excellent position due to his buyer’s process (pre-qualified and pre-approved) the seller went under contract with us. Almost three years later, we’re still living in our dream home, which turned out to be much better than the first house anyway.Chris also acted twice as our seller’s agent, and in the process taught us quite a bit about real estate investing. Chris’ multi-step process of selling a house played out completely as intended and really paid off. For the first house, we ended up with a multiple offer situation, and sold the house for $25K more than it was listed, which set a precedent for the whole neighborhood. A second home was in a market not doing as well as Austin’s market, but Chris helped us out here as well and we got a full-price offer in less than a month. His knowledge and experience, and his willingness to answer our many questions, made us feel confident in our choices and we now have a nice ~7% return on investments.Through all of our real estate dealings, Chris has shown incredible professionalism, patience and superior knowledge of the real estate market. He has built a great team that helps him with different aspects, but he will always spend his own time to answer our questions. And yes, we’re both detail-oriented people, so we have had MANY questions. We have dealt with two other real estate agents in the past, and have always felt they made way too much money of off us for what they were actually doing. Not Chris. Much to his credit, even our two buyers seemed much impressed with our realtor. We have recommended Chris to numerous friends and colleagues who have all fared well with him as their realtor, and we’re glad to recommend him to you as well.
His Process truly leads to Performance.
Chris has been a dear friend for several decades and recently helped us sell our Westlake house and purchase a brand new Barton Creek home. His excellent negotiating skills and Unique Process truly enhanced the value to where we were able to maximize our returns on both transactions. After our closing, he continues to work...
