My husband and I were so fortunate to have worked with Karis Fagerberg at Sotheby's as our real estate agent who found us our home in Davenport Ranch. She is truly the most professional agent I have ever worked with. She not only gave us the opportunity to see numerous homes before they went on the market as a private listing, but she knows Westlake like the back of her hand living and working here for over 20 years. Karis is a true professional, highly ethical, and tirelessly visited home after home for us and screened homes before we even saw them...the best was how she could convince homeowners to convert their rental properties into properties for sale and hence actually created inventory in the Westlake area. My family is blessed to have worked with Karis and I couldn't recommend her enough.
Just wanted to take a moment to recognize and recommend Karis Fagerberg, who represented us in both the sale and purchase of homes. Selling our family home was a difficult decision. Our home was older and while updated, not perfect. Pricing based on comps was a challenge and very subjective. Karis was able to make that process easier by providing accurate pricing and process information, while allowing our love for our home and neighborhood to guide the decision. Using this strategy, we attracted multiple buyers who truly appreciated what we offered. Knowing that our buyer would love our home made the experience a bit more pleasant. Karis handled all concerns professionally and personally, resulting in a successful sale. As our buyer agent, Karis went the extra mile to help us find just the right fit. Her tireless efforts on our behalf led to a smooth and stress free purchase - and an exciting new chapter in our lives. Karis is a consummate professional with a personal flair. She is very knowledgeable and also willing to do the work to understand the intricacies of a fast paced market. She provides a service as free of drama as possible, without sacrificing a true care for the individuals involved. My favorite quote during negotiations was "This needs to be fair for all, you especially." Emotion never trumped reason and we appreciated that support. I would recommend Karis without reservation.
Our whole family really enjoyed working with Karis. She immerses herself into the needs of the family, not just the adults in the deal and that is very important. We had Karis as our selling and buying agent. For selling, she was very communicative, marketed strongly to drive a lot of buyers to our home, and got us very close to our asking price and over the average price per sq ft in our neighborhood. We liked that. For buying, I loved how Karis would tell us we could do better and never tried to push us into a house. She is very knowledgable about the Austin neighborhoods and had access to private listings which was key for our target area. She is on top of all of the documents needed and keeps the transaction very neat and smooth. And she's funny. I miss talking and texting with her regularly about the home selling / buying but I know I can reach out to her as a friend at any time. She's a genuine person who really cares about her clients and the home they select -- not just about getting the deal. That's refreshing. We love the home we purchased but if for any reason we need to sell we'll definitely call Karis.
Karis is great. She is knowledgeable, available, and honest. She found us our home before it ever made it to market. I highly recommend her.
