Kathy's most recent endorsements

"To say Kathy made buying our first new build possible is a complete understatement. Her knowledge, expertise, and guidance through the long, stressful, and at times incredibly frustrating process are second to none. Her optimism and dependability never wavered over the six month process (although she has actually been patient with us for years as we tested the housing market on several different occasions). She's as sweet and friendly as they come, but don't be mistaken- when it comes down to needing firm representation with a builder, Kathy has no problem stepping up and being that advocate for you and your family. We are honored and privileged to have Kathy as not only our realtor, but as our friend. You cannot go wrong with Kathy in your corner!" - Ty and Carolina – Kathy De La Cruz
"Kathy is our blessing in disguise. She is true to her word and promise to take care of you. Me and my husband would recommend her to anyone who could use a real professional realtor. She really rocks our world and we are so thankful she came into our lives."- Vicki – Rudy Portillo
"I have worked with Kathy De La Cruz as an agent on multiple home buys and have always been very happy with her. She is honest about expectations and price setting. She was extremely helpful in getting the home cleaned and staged for show. Kathy went the distance for me and my spouse with each project. We would be more than willing to use her again in the future."- Chris L. – Kathy De La Cruz
"Kathy De La Cruz is a fabulous realtor who is a well-qualified professional. My family discovered that she is mega-experienced in real estate and has a high-level of integrity. I really like Kathy and have had a wonderful experience with her as our realtor and family friend. She is very knowledgeable about Austin and the surrounding areas. Kathy is also dedicated to community service and shares our community, since she and her family live "just down the street" here in south Austin. Kathy De La Cruz has a relaxed professional style and spends lots of time just learning about exactly what type of home or property we were looking for - all in our own home. It is fabulous that Kathy understands that it takes time, time and more time to make important decisions about making an investment and purchasing property. We were glad that she is not a high pressure “sales person." When we were looking for our home, we did not run, run, run around - she selected what we were interested in by invested time to send oodles of links for us to check online, continued to ask: what did you like about this property? and if you were to rank these three homes, which one did you like best? We appreciated that Kathy made appointments to see just the properties we selected and created a plan to make us comfortable along the way! I have kept in touch with Kathy over the past two years after she helped my family the purchase of our Austin residence and investment properties in south Austin. It is always a pleasure when she calls and stops by my home with updates about our property values or news about events in our community. I had no idea that I was going to grow to love this city and our community! Kathy seems to pull out all the stops when it comes to ensuring families enjoy Austin and the surrounding areas. Kathy is great to assist by sharing community information, networking to help us find a reliable landscape service and being a helpful advocate to assist with review of our new property. When I spoke to Kathy today, she said she has taken on a part-time realtor, Penny Payne, who specializes in assisting people with physical limitations. In addition, Kathy is always seeking new ways to reach out to new Austin residents to help them comfortably settle into our Texas community. Without hesitation, I recommend Kathy and her associates to assist my friends and neighbors with all requests for real estate information in the Austin and larger surrounding areas, even north to Lago Vista or south to Dripping Spring and Wimberley."- Gail C. – Kathy De La Cruz
"My experience with Kathy was amazing. Kathy sold our home & found us a new one. She was professional, reliable & very informative. Everything went very smooth. Kathy treated us like family. Today we are 1 month in our new home." - Pepau L. – Kathy De La Cruz
"Best realtor ever! Kathy took a very difficult process and made it as easy and smooth as possible for us first-time home buyers. She was always easy to get a hold of, and held our hands every step of the way. We would definitely recommend Kathy for anyone looking to buy a home in the Austin area!"- George G. – Kathy De La Cruz
"My experience working with Kathy from hundreds if miles away was great. When i finally meet her it was even better. She treated my wife and I as if she knew us forever. I must have called, text, and emailed her hundreds of times and she has responded to each and every one of them. Kathy not only found us a house...she found a perfect HOME! I would HIGHLY recommend her."- Earnest M. – Kathy De La Cruz
"Thank you Kathy for providing an EXCELLENT level of service on my largest purchase to date!! All the details that had me feeling overwhelmed, you handled with such grace and positivity!! I am so grateful I found my realtor for LIFE!! We created a trust that is vital in the process involved when purchasing my dream home. Thank you again and always know I appreciate you!!"- Victoria C. – Kathy De La Cruz
"Kathy is very knowledgable and provided us with great ideas to stage our home and get it ready for the market. Her knowledge, expertise, and marketing stategies made the sell of our home seamless and quick! I strongly recommend Kathy to anyone who wants to sell their home and get a maximum return to call Kathy! Exemplary service."- Shirley J. – Kathy De La Cruz
"I was very comfortable using Kathy to list and sell my home since she lived in my neighborhood for a number of years. She has always been willing to advise me on updates I was considering through the years which ensured I was getting the best value for any improvements I made to the property. Kathy provided frequent flyers on the sale and purchase of homes in the immediate area to ensure I always knew the value of my home. When I decided to sale my home, Kathy was very honest about the improvements and updates I should make before listing the house. With her expertise and guidance, we received an offer on our home within 2 weeks. I would recommend Kathy to all my friends and family, in fact, I already have!"- Zachary D. – Kathy De La Cruz
"Kathy is very sweet, always responds back promptly. Considerate to our safety and our needs prior to moving in. She genuinely wanted us to be happy where we decided to live. Highly recommend her services."- Ronica P. – Kathy De La Cruz
"It is my pleasure to Endorse Kathy De La Cruz!! She is a fantastic Realtor! Very knowledgeable and works tirelessly for her clients. Whether you are a 1st time home buyer or a seasoned Investor, Kathy is the Realtor for you! I highly recommend her!! You are in good hands!! :)" Byron T – Kathy De La Cruz
We are pleased to recommend Kathy De La Cruz to anyone looking to sell or buy a home. After 17 years living comfortable in our first home in Austin, Texas, we decided to put in on the market. We needed to sell it in order to move on and search for our dream home, with a large yard, enough rooms and other nice features for family and friends. We found Kathy to be a highly attentive and responsive agent, as if we were her only customers. She is greatly personable with an engaging personality. Kathy had an initial meeting with us, asked many questions and took diligent notes regarding our specific needs as well as our budgetary circumstances. We had several meetings. We never felt neglected or unimportant despite our many questions and doubts. She returned all phone calls and emails the same day. Kathy was honest about some minor changes that we needed to make in our home to attract buyers quickly, and her advice worked like a charm. A master with the contract negotiations, Kathy came up with a deal that was good for us and made the buyer happy as well. As we wanted to buy the ideal home, Kathy engaged in the buying process as well. She is very talented and makes excellent use of the relevant search engines and real estate databases to quickly find us a variety of homes for sale in the best school districts. She did not waste our time with homes that were out of our price range or not in line with our needs. She knows Austin very well. There is nothing that escapes Kathy’s attention when it comes to properties for sale in this area. Kathy was fully engaged on the buying process and made sure that we got what we expected for the price we paid. Her attention to details was key before and after the closing and the move. We have seen other realtors in action. In our opinion Kathy is indubitably the best in the business. If we ever need to move again, the First Lady of Real State will be our first choice in real estate agents. Thank you Kathy, our Realtor and Friend for Life! Ignacio & Mary Parra – Ignacio and Mary Parra
We had the pleasure to get to know Kathy 6 years ago when she helped us purchase our first home. Recently she helped us sell our home and helped us through the process of building our very first home. We are extremely happy with our new built home and we are very grateful that we had Kathy by our side for every step of the selling and buying process. Kathy's caring heart, her dependable commitments to meet us at our appointments, her attention to take care of her clients, and her willingness to educate her clients are some of her strongest strengths that have contributed to our love of working with her over the years. We not only consider Kathy our realtor for life, we also consider her a friend for life!!! – Starr N Cruz
