Kristen Rummel, of Austin Real Estate Portfolio, is an esteemed professional with considerable years of experience in the Austin area. 
Our family’s home needed to be sold during an inopportune time with high interest rates & hesitant buyers. Kristen knew houses were selling in that area & was optimistic.  Preparing a house to list, can be a daunting task. Kristen is judicious & has an eye for detail. She guided me through the process of preparing the house. She brought in stagers who attractively transformed the house to shine. Photos & videography were taken by a professional photographer. The MLS listing was exceptionally impressive.  Kristen was continuously current on local real estate activity & shared updates with me. She advertised & communicated immensely across online networks & platforms.  As showings & open houses were scheduled she let me know & shared feedback. Multiple times she followed up with interested buyers. Kristen’s tenacity never ceased to amaze me. There is a definite advantage to selling your house with a knowledgeable professional like Kristen. She has integrity, enthusiasm, is sincerely dedicated to excelling in the real estate business. I am so grateful & blessed Kristen Rummel agreed to be my realtor. The house SOLD!!!
