We worked with agent Kristin Wellborn. This was our fifth house bought/sold over the past 28 years and Kristin is by far the best realtor we have ever worked with (not even close). In this case, we were buyers. Kristin possesses incredible knowledge about the Austin area. We resided in another state (1,400 miles away) and had to purchase our house without being able to visit in person. We completely relied on her understanding of the various towns and neighborhoods. She sent us many, many videos and frank assessments about the myriad properties for sale that she visited on our behalf. Kristin respected our wishes concerning the purchase process (no bidding wars!) and in the end negotiated a great deal on our behalf, below both list and the lender-appraised value. Our offer to the seller was based on well-researched comparables and was immediately accepted. (BTW: we were not “high-end” buyers; our purchase price was about average for Austin. Rest assured: Kristin will work tirelessly on your behalf regardless of your price level.) She kept in constant contact with us, seven days a week. Honestly, it would be impossible to find a more dedicated agent.
We had the honor of having Kristin Wellborn as our realtor/representative in our home buying process. In our initial consultation with her, she was very knowledgable, asked the right questions, and most importantly understood our needs as first time home buyers. She went above and beyond to secure homes for us to privately view and even went further to take time out of her busy schedule anytime we had urgent questions. If you’re thinking of having someone in your corner to represent you, Kristin does phenomenal work.
I used Kristin Wellborn as my realtor, and she was nothing short of amazing! I almost felt bad for how much effort she put into making our experience top notch. She drove all around the city for weeks on end. Spoke on our behalf and represented us so well! We closed on our house this past week here in Austin, (extremely tough market) and wouldn’t have been able to without her. Highly recommend!!
Worked with Kristin Wellborn and she was AMAZING! Searched high and low in a CRAZY market like Austin but found our perfect home and did all the grunt work to get us to closing. Made my first time buying a breeze! Highly recommend!
Kristin Wellborn was an outstanding realtor to work with, particularly as a first time buyer in this crazy Austin market. She always had an informed, insightful, and honest opinion about every place we considered. Throughout the process, Kristin was also very friendly and extremely responsive. We look forward to working with her in the future.
My fiancé and I had the pleasure of working with Kristin from Bramlett Residential and had a great experience. Kristin made sure to keep us informed of anything that was going on through text, phone calls, and e-mails. Her experience with lenders, the title company, and of Austin as a whole made for a seamless experience from beginning to close. I already have recommended her to friends.
We would absolutely recommend Kristin and Bramlet Residential!
Our home buying journey began in June of 2019, passively looking at homes in Austin but unsure of how serious we were. We had just moved from Boston, MA and were still getting settled in Austin, but had a feeling this was where we wanted to lay down roots. As we inquired about a home we received a reply immediately from Kristin.
From there, we had our initial meeting, explained to Kristin the area and types of homes that were appealing to us. Kristin listened, took our feedback, gave us some great insights on the market, housing styles and locations and showed us three different styles of homes to get our reaction to each one (very insightful!). Unfortunately, since we were in Austin for less than a year, we decided to give ourselves a bit more time. Through the course of the next year Kristin would check in from time to time to see how we were doing. Many realtors would identify that we were not motivated and move on. But not Kristin! She was patient and responsive no matter what.
Fast forward to July of 2020. Now just over a year and a half in Austin and we knew this was the place we wanted to be. Once again Kristin was responsive and ready to meet us right away to start looking at homes! We toured multiple houses and she was able to answer any and all questions. Each time she was professional, fully prepared and easy to talk to!
When we found our home, she helped us with the offer terms and gave us great coaching throughout the process. Unfortunately, some things fell through and we decided to not move forward. While many realtors may be frustrated with the back and forth, Kristin went above and beyond through the entire process while maintaining a great attitude.
Then finally, after much searching, we found the house that we can now call OUR Home! Kristin once again coached us through everything, and was there every step of the way until closing. Thank you Kristin (and Bramlett Residential) – we will definitely be working with you in the future!!
I have absolutely nothing but positive things to say about Kristin Wellborn! She made this transition from Oregon to Texas seamless. My husband and I have bought and sold a few homes in Oregon the past 7 years, and moving out of state was easier than those transactions were, and that was all thanks to Kristin. She has a way of balancing being professional, incredibly responsive, so helpful, and also extremely caring the entire time. My husband and I will 100% be calling her again when we decide to move to a different home in Texas. Kristin is absolutely hands down one of the best realtors we’ve ever worked with.
Kristin Wellborn was awesome! We found a home we liked while on vacation. When we returned late on Sunday, we asked her to schedule a showing. She did a late evening showing with us THAT SAME DAY and then followed up on Monday morning at like 7am! She was super responsive at every step of the buying process, always reachable by phone, and willing to go the extra mile in explaining or negotiating with the selling agent. I would recommend her to friends and family any day, and plan to.
Kristin was amazing throughout the entire process. We are recommending Kristin to all of our friends and family and will be calling her when we sell our home down the road. She was patient, knowledgeable, responsive, both kind and aggressive when necessary, and easy to work with. I was taking 14 hours of grad school classes and working full time and my husband works 7-7 Monday through Saturday. Kristin was very flexible and understanding of our work schedule. We were also first-time homebuyers. She took the time to define all of the lingo, answer any questions we had, and made us feel comfortable throughout the process. She never made us feel bad for not knowing things and never made us feel pressured to do anything. She took a lot of stress off our shoulders and helped us understand all aspects of the process, whether it was the loan or the home inspection report. She is very professional and dedicated to her work. She should win employee of the year – we loved her!
As a first time home buyer, I consider myself lucky to have come across Kristin and have her guide us through the process of finding and buying a home. Especially given the fact that we weren’t local to the Austin area, and needed someone who was knowledgeable of the area, who we could trust, and who could also maintain a high level of communication as we went through the buying process while living out of state. She had us prepared for every step in advance, and made the process seamless and easy. From showing my wife around the area on her first visit to Austin, up to the day we closed, and beyond when we needed recommendations for things to do and see after moving in, she could be counted on for any guidance we needed throughout the process.
I would higly recommend Kristin from Eric Bramlett Residential Real Estate. As a first-time home buyer, Kristin made the process easy and simple. She explained the process from start to finish and was always in contact with us. Very professional, expert in her field, honest and always available when we had any question. We would definitely choose Kristin as our real state agent in the future and would recommend her to anyone.
