Excellent service and follow through. Very professional!

I highly recommend Kristen for all real estate needs.

Kristen is such a friendly and professional agent. I have really enjoyed working with her and will continue to do so!

Womack Real Estate and Kristen Balke did an amazing job for me.
They were with me every step of the way and help make the search, buying, closing and move in transition very simple and easy.

Kristen was great to work with from initial call through to closing. She managed to get us several offers, all of which were well over our asking price, and got our house sold and closed faster than I thought was possible. I would gladly work with Kristen again in the future and can’t recommend her enough.

Kristen was amazing in helping my family find our new home. She asked questions, made suggestions, and listened. She was very professional and responsive to our needs. We will definitely recommend Kristen to friends and family.

They don’t come better than Kristen! She listened, no – really, really listened to our needs and spent almost 2 years finding us our perfect slice of paradise. We were difficult to please, no question, and she never took it personally and didn’t give up the search for the impossible property for us. She wasn’t pushy, she just made it know that she was still thinking about us and our very niche needs. And quests what? She made it happen!

So grateful that we found Kristen and couldn’t recommend a real estate partner more highly!

Kristen was the best realtor that I’ve worked with, hand down! She was very attentive to my property purchase and she made sure that the transaction flows smoothly. She was also very responsive to my questions and concerns. I would recommend Kristen to anybody who is looking for a realtor. Thank you Kristen!

Kristen is an outstanding real estate agent with extensive knowledge of the Austin market. She is hard working and driven. She values her clients and is always working for their best interests. I highly recommend Kristen as your next real estate agent. She will work hard to find you the forever home of your dreams.

We can highly recommend Kristen Schultz Balke as a top-notch real estate professional. Kristen recently helped us sell and purchase homes in the Lakeway area. We found her to be very knowledgeable about the industry, thorough with follow-up, and prompt on response time. We were fortunate to have Kristen’s persuasive communication skills on our side as she was able to negotiate our contract into an accepted offer in this very formidable market. Kristen was with us every step of the way, sometimes even a step ahead!

I cannot recommend enough our service with Kristen. This is the second home we buy and the expectations were high, well she crushed it!!! Not to mention she crushed it during a hot and hard market. She made the process very smooth and the vendors she recommended were top notch.

If we buy another house, she will be my go to.

I’ve worked with Kristen on multiple occasions and her professionalism and area knowledge are outstanding. She has a great, calming demeanor and is an excellent negotiator. I certainly recommend her for your real estate needs!
